Mueller’s so-called Russia Questions


The following is an analysis of the 53 questions based on the version published by Fox News in their on-site report of the alleged “45 Mueller Questions” published by the New York Times from a leak that has not been challenged by Robert Swan Mueller III Chief Counsel for the “Russia, Russia, Russia!” investigation.

Where the investigation was defined as one to determine if there was illegal collusion, corroboration or action between Russian government agents and the Trump 2016 Presidential Campaign organization to influence or rig the election an empirical analysis is possible.  Nontheless, our analysis is subjective, by definition, but we feel valid as the four classes have been carefully designed and sincerely applied.

From this we conclude:  Only 38% of the questions are “Valid” or “Maybe Valid” thus the questionnaire is insincere and beyond the defined limits of the inquiry.  The analysis of 53 Questions yielded the following outcome:

VAL = Valid 13,  MAY = Maybe  7, NOT = Not Valid,  27,  RID = Ridiculous 6 and the questions, with our classifications are:

Conclusions:  We feel this document proves beyond doubt the Mueller investigation was ill-conceived as no crime was committed per legislation calling for it.  The questions asking, “What did you think?” are totally out of bounds as the inquiry is about actions.  Where the commission of crimes is concerned with actions and many of these questions were of “knowledge” we felt all such questions should have been disqualified, but we allowed them as they were at least on the subject.  A more rigorous analysis would disqualify them and the valid questions would approach zero.
