The kook-right and kook-left are working hard to discredit Special Counsel Robert Mueller. This effort is being amplified by many of the usual (bot and troll) suspects.

Don’t worry, folks. Bob Mueller’s credibility is not in doubt. Certain people simply want you to think it is.
To be clear, this is “getting worse and worse” because Trumpers—along with Jason Leopold’s friends and apologists—are making it that way.

Ask them why. #Horseshoe

Truth is, after getting caught fabricating sources and stories in the past, what little credibility Jason Leopold has left is the result of his work pushing Kremlin propaganda outlets and figures like these.

Don’t buy the phony hype.
Some people are frantically trying to sell you a narrative of Jason Leopold as some sort of "reformed" journalist. The Kremlin propaganda was years ago, right?

Okay, but if that's true, then why did Leopold write the foreward for a Kremlin employee's book published in mid-2017?
Here's a link to the book Leopold wrote the foreward for. The co-author, John Kiriakou, is a host of co-host of Loud and Clear on Sputnik Radio.

Sputnik Radio is a registered agent of the Russian government. John Kiriakou is a Kremlin employee. #Facts

It's not like John Kiriakou and Jason Leopold aren't friends. The two men collaborated both before and after John Kiriakou spent time in prison.

More on his case here, if you're interested:

I don't know what Jason Leopold was thinking when he decided to publish his latest story, but I do know that Bob Mueller has proven himself to be above reproach.

The same cannot and should not be said for Jason Leopold. He failed to do his job. Yet again. That's what matters.
There is no equivalence here. There are only people who want you to believe there kinda, sorta, maybe might be a little bit if you squint a little.

Nope.
Jason Leopold posted links to Sputnik News articles in July 2016, only a few months before the election. Leopold posted pro-WikiLeaks and anti-Clinton material FIVE DAYS before the 2016 election.

Now people assume Jason Leopold is on the Dems side?

Should you really though?

CODA: Before people ask if those screenshots in my last tweet are real (which is fine, by the way, always be skeptical), yes, they're real. Here are the archives.
