The Global Security News: 1. Russia from Michael_Novakhov (116 sites): Voice of America – English: Rights Watch: Conditions Dire for Asylum-Seekers Stuck in Mexico

Asylum-seekers forced to wait in Mexico are increasingly facing violence and dire conditions, stranded in purgatory with no means to survive, according to an upcoming report from Human Rights Watch.

The international rights group called on the Trump administration to end the practice of preventing asylum-seekers from living in the United States while their cases are being considered.

As of last week, Mexico reported 15,079 people, mostly from Central America, had been sent back to Mexico after reaching the U.S. That number includes 4,780 children and at least 13 pregnant women, according to the report, which was obtained by The Associated Press and will be released Tuesday.

Attacked, kidnapped, assaulted

Several asylum-seekers interviewed by the group were attacked, kidnapped or sexually assaulted in Mexico while waiting for court hearings. When some go to the U.S. for their hearings, they lose their shelter in Mexico and have no place upon return.

Officials from the Department of Homeland Security had no immediate comment about the report.

The policy is one of the only border crackdown efforts by Trump that has not been shut down by courts. Homeland Security officials claim it is a necessary effort to stop the unmanageable flow of migrants streaming into the U.S. But there is growing outcry from humanitarian groups, lawyers and even asylum officers over the policy and what it means for safety and security, especially amid a rapid expansion following an allowance by Mexico to appease the Trump administration and avoid threatened tariffs.

Asylum-seekers have up to a year to file a claim. From October through March 31, there were 103,658 cases filed. There are tens of thousands of people crossing the border each month.

Belongings, papers taken by agents

The report also found that many asylum-seekers said their belongings, including their documents, were confiscated by Border Patrol agents. Homeland Security’s watchdog has also found that agents routinely dumped asylum-seekers’ backpacks, handbags and suitcases.

One 23-year-old asylum-seeker from Honduras, a mother, said agents took all her documents and now she has no proof that her daughter is even hers. In another case, a father said his government-issued ID was taken and he couldn’t get it back, despite needing to return to El Salvador to be with his gravely ill child. He ended up traveling to a Salvadoran consulate about 700 miles (1,120 kilometers) away and then leaving.

Another woman traveling with her 6-year-old and 3-year-old sons from Honduras said she is no longer permitted to stay in a shelter — it’s unclear why — and her court date is five months from now. She said she’s thinking of crossing illegally but is afraid the government will take her children.

The report was based on interviews and court monitoring done by the watchdog group in Mexico and the U.S. in May.

The Global Security News: 1. US Security from Michael_Novakhov (88 sites): Eurasia Review: China’s Risks Rise With Threats To Gulf Oil – Analysis

By Michael Lelyveld

Rising risks to shipping in the Persian Gulf have renewed questions
about China’s strategic stockpile of oil and its dependence on energy
flows from the Middle East.

As the world’s largest oil importer, China would be vulnerable to a
shutdown of traffic through the Strait of Hormuz, the vital waterway
that carries about one-fifth of the world’s liquid petroleum supplies.

The potential impact is part of growing concern in China over energy
security with the rise in dependence on imported crude oil to roughly 70
percent from 50 percent in 2008.

“Needless to say, the dependency rate is quite high, but in my
opinion, it may still be a conservative calculation,” said Lin Boqiang,
dean of Xiamen University’s China Institute for Studies in Energy
Policy.

“More importantly, the government should be aware that such high oil
dependency is actually a very unsafe form of risk,” Lin told the
Communist Party of China (CPC)-affiliated Global Times in an interview published on March 29.

After years of decline, China’s domestic oil production is expected
to keep lagging behind demand growth, raising import reliance.

In separate studies last year, the Paris-based International Energy
Agency (IEA) estimated that import dependence will reach 76 percent in
2024 and 82 percent in 2040.

China now gets about 4.5 million barrels per day (mbpd) from the Gulf
out of the 10 mbpd of crude that it imports, making a potential closure
a “serious oil supply risk to China’s economy,” said Mikkal Herberg,
energy security research director for the Seattle-based National Bureau
of Asian Research (NBR).

Major oil suppliers like Saudi Arabia have some options for exporting
in case the strait is blocked, but how much would get through to China
remains to be seen.

“My guess is that China would still receive some of such constrained
Saudi and other Gulf supplies because they are such an important
customer,” Herberg said.

But he warned that “things quickly get complicated when you start thinking of different scenarios for a Gulf supply disruption.”

Herberg believes the main threat to China from a strait shutdown
would be economic, since importers would be forced to compete for
limited oil supplies at prices of U.S. $100 (687 yuan) per barrel or
more.

A loss of 10 mbpd in Middle East oil supplies due to a Gulf
disruption could lower the global economy by 9 percent and cut China’s
economy by 6 percent, he said, citing an estimate in October by the
Institute of Energy Economics, Japan (IEEJ).

Line of defense

China’s line of defense against a cutoff is its Strategic Petroleum
Reserve (SPR), a controversial version of the stockpiles maintained in
IEA member countries in case of serious disruptions to supplies.

Unlike the emergency inventories held by IEA members, China’s SPR
program, first announced in 2004, has remained shrouded in secrecy, in
part for competitive reasons and concerns about driving up prices.
Official reports on the volume held in storage have been infrequent and
out of date.

In January 2018, the National Bureau of Statistics (NBS) reported
that China’s “national crude oil reserves” at nine strategic storage
bases and “some corporate facilities” stood at 37.73 million metric tons
(276.5 million barrels) as of the end of June 2017.

The last known SPR update was followed by sporadic reports from the
official Xinhua news agency on commercial crude oil stocks, but those
have since stopped.

By contrast, the U.S. Department of Energy provides regular data on
SPR inventory changes. On June 21, the SPR held 644.8 million barrels of
crude, enough to last for years at the low average daily import rates
reported for the first quarter.

In May, an analyst at S&P Global Platts news service, writing in the Daily Telegraph,
estimated China’s SPR inventory at almost 300 million barrels, the
equivalent of about 30 days of imports. The IEA standard for its members
is a minimum of 90 days.

Over the years, China has rarely disclosed when it is filling its
storage, leaving international oil markets in the dark. It has also
never ruled out using its SPR to influence oil prices, instead of
tapping it only in a coordinated response to supply emergencies, as
required by the IEA.

The lack of transparency has forced energy analysts to make educated
guesses of China’s reserve levels based on available evidence.

A recent Platts report on monthly changes in China’s implied crude
oil stocks included data from satellites, which can detect the fill
level of oil storage tanks.

Although the line between China’s SPR and its commercial stocks may
be blurred, Xiamen University’s Lin Boqiang cited an estimate that China
has 40 to 50 days’ worth of “oil use” in storage.

Lin urged continued stockpiling to reach import coverage of 90 days.
China’s SPR plans originally called for 100 days of coverage by 2020.

Mikkal Herberg suggested that the current SPR level could cover as
much as 65 to 70 days of imports, since Gulf supplies are unlikely to be
cut off entirely while exports from other producers would continue as
before.

But the higher estimates may be academic, since the impact on China would depend on how long the blockage of the strait drags on.

‘An obvious solution’

Edward Chow, senior associate for energy and national security at the
Center for Strategic and International Studies in Washington, agrees
that China can be expected to continue building up its SPR to meet the
90-day standard.

“Clearly, this takes time and the urgency increases whenever there is
turmoil in the Persian Gulf, as there is today,” said Chow.

China’s rising risk could persuade it to upgrade its cooperation with
the IEA. Beijing has been participating under an association agreement
with the agency since 2015.

“An obvious solution is to enter into a more formal agreement with
IEA members on strategic stock and burden-sharing at a time of supply
crisis,” said Chow.

“In theory, China can lease strategic stock capacity from other
countries, if it were part of an international agreement on its use,
while continuing to build strategic stock levels inside China,” Chow
said.

But the solution would require China “to give up some degree of
independent sovereign action in this area, which China is understood to
be reluctant to do, and one of the reasons why it is not a member of the
IEA,” he said.

Over a decade ago, China’s secrecy over buying for its SPR was seen
as a “wild card” in the oil market that frustrated analysts’ efforts to
estimate supply and demand.

China’s buying for storage was frequently blamed for helping to drive
up oil prices during the years before the world economic crisis in
2008.

The costs of creating and filling China’s SPR are also opaque. The
burden is believed to have fallen mainly on China’s national oil
companies (NOCs), making them resistant to buying when prices are high.

But the rapid growth of China’s import dependence and SPR
requirements have appeared to be the result of high-level inattention
and policy neglect by the government.

“In the short term, there’s not much China can do to reduce its
risk,” Herberg said. “There are no that many options to expand to other
suppliers.”

“Beijing would actually have better results by attacking the demand side of their oil import equation,” Herberg said.

Options could include a greater push for electric vehicles, improved
energy efficiency, driving limitations and rationing, he said.

The Global Security News: 1. US Security from Michael_Novakhov (88 sites): Eurasia Review: Vladimir Putin Vs Liberalism 1:0 – Analysis

Certain
that Western and liberal democratic leaders
would limit themselves to verbal denials, Russian president Vladimir
Putin knew he was kicking into an open goal when he declared on the eve
of the Group of
20 (G20) summit in Osaka that liberalism had “outlived its purpose.”

He may even have anticipated that US president Donald
J. Trump would go further and in his own way endorse the Russian president’s assertion.

When asked at a news conference to respond to Mr.
Putin’s remarks, Mr. Trump opted to denounce America’s liberals by focusing on American municipal leaders who oppose his policies, including his clampdown on
migration.

Mr.
Putin “sees what’s going on. If you look at what’s
happening in Los Angeles…and San Francisco and a couple of other
cities which are run by an extraordinary group of liberal people, I
don’t know what they are
thinking, but he does see things that are happening in the United States
that would probably preclude him from saying how wonderful it is. I’m
very
embarrassed by what I see,” Mr. Trump said.

In
a nod to illiberal governance, Mr. Trump went on to
say that “you don’t want it to spread and at a certain point, I think
the federal government may have to get involved. We can’t let that
continue to
happen.”

Mr. Trump’s response was not a one-off remark. His
empathy with illiberalism was also evident in his refusal to seriously take Mr. Putin to task for alleged Russian interference in US elections despite the conclusion by US intelligence and special counsel Robert Mueller that there had been
extensive meddling.

Similarly, during a breakfast meeting at the G-20 with
crown prince Mohammed bin Salman, Mr. Trump praised the Saudi leader for doing a “spectacular job.”

He praised Prince Mohammed as “a man who has really done things in the last five years in terms of opening up Saudi Arabia” and described the prince’s enhancement
of some women’s rights as a “a revolution in a very positive way.”

Mr.
Trump made no mention of the fact that Prince
Mohammed had imprisoned activists who had campaigned for things like the
lifting of a ban on women’s driving as well as scores of critics and
dissidents.

The activists, some of whom have asserted that they
have been tortured, are standing trial on charges of undertaking “coordinated and organized activities… that aim to undermine the Kingdom’s security, stability, and national unity.”

Like
virtually all Western and liberal democratic
leaders at the G20, Mr. Trump played down Saudi Arabia’s lack of
transparent accountability for last October’s killing of journalist
Jamal Khashoggi as well
as the conduct of the Saudi-United Arab Emirates-led war in Yemen.

The leaders made sure
that Prince Mohammed, the host of next year’s G20, was not isolated
as he was at their gathering last year in Buenos Aires.

A senior official tempered outgoing British prime
minister Teresa May’s call for accountability in a one-on-one with Prince Mohammed by noting that the two leaders had “concluded by agreeing on the importance of the
relationship
” and of “regional stability” with no apparent
qualification.

Perhaps because the targeting in 2018 of two Russians
with a nerve agent occurred on British soil, Ms. May took a tougher stand than most in a frosty meeting with Mr. Putin.

“The
prime minister underlined that we remain open to
a different relationship, but for that to happen the Russian government
must choose a different path. The prime minister said the UK would
continue to
unequivocally defend liberal democracy and protect the human rights and
equality of all groups, including LGBT people,” a spokesperson for Ms.
May
said.

By and large, however, Western and liberal democratic
leaders seemed to lend credibility to Mr. Putin’s assertion on liberalism by failing to put their money where their mouth is.

They were equally soft gloved in their interactions
with Chinese president Xi Jinping when it came to liberal values such as human rights.

There was no apparent mention, at least no public
mention, of China’s brutal clampdown on Turkic Muslims in the troubled north-western province of Xinjiang.

The incarceration in re-education camps of an
estimated one million Uyghurs amounts to the most frontal assault on a faith group since World War Two’s Nazi assault on Jews.

Likewise, there was overall little that went beyond strong verbiage in the response by liberal democratic leaders to Mr. Putin’s attempt to fuel polarisation in the
West
by asserting that liberalism “presupposes that…migrants can kill, plunder and rape with impunity because their rights…
have to be protected.”

As
a result, European Council president Donald Tusk’s
retort put little, if any meat, on the response of liberal democratic
leaders and seemed more like paying sharp-tongued lip service to values
such as human
rights

“For
us in Europe, these are and will remain essential
and vibrant values. What I find really obsolete are authoritarianism,
personality cults, the rule of oligarchs. Even if sometimes they may
seem effective,”
Mr. Tusk said.

Michael Novakhov – SharedNewsLinks℠: What Does a Crooked Election Look Like?


Michael_Novakhov
shared this story
from Scientific American Content: Global.

For voters around the world, including the millions of Americans who will cast ballots in the midterms up to and on November 6, an election is democracy in action—an opportunity to make their voices heard, have a say in how their government is run and, if necessary, throw the bums out. It is a thoroughly political exercise, or so it would seem.

But to Peter Klimek, who works in the emerging field of electoral forensics, an election is something else as well. “Basically it is a huge, standardized social experiment,” he says. “What you are doing is taking the population of a country and segmenting it into different subpopulations—the eligible voters in their separate polling stations. Then you are having each one of them answer the same questions.”

And because huge experiments like elections follow the law of large numbers,  a bedrock principle of probability, those answers from the voting data should show “certain statistical regularities,” says Klimek, who studies complex systems at Medical University of Vienna. When they do not, when there are instead statistical anomalies, that other F–word—fraud—may be the reason.

That appears to be the case with the results of Turkey’s 2017 constitutional referendum and its 2018 presidential election, which Klimek and colleagues analyze in a paper published earlier this month in PLOS ONE. Using their own set of statistical tools, the researchers identified multiple irregularities in both elections that they attribute to systematic ballot stuffing (submission of multiple ballots per person during the election) and voter rigging (defined as coercion or intimidation of voters). In the case of the constitutional referendum they wrote, “removing such ballot-stuffing characteristic anomalies from the data would tip the overall balance from a majority of ‘No’ to a majority of ‘Yes’ votes.” Klimek says, “We’ve showed that you can develop a unique tool set that allows you not only to screen a data set for potential signs of fraud but also to identify the specific methods used.” One of the most important features of such forensic tool kits (others in the field have created their own) is their portability. They can be used to analyze elections around the world, and a physical presence is not necessary. All that’s required is the voting data, ideally at the level of individual polling stations, which can usually be downloaded from official government Web sites.

There is clearly a need. A 2010 analysis of data from elections conducted in more than 170 countries between 1978 and 2004, published on the Social Science Research Network, found signs of some cheating in 61 percent of the countries, and major problems in 27 percent of them. Since the early 2000s various research groups, including Klimek’s, have used forensic tools to examine elections in multiple countries including Venezuela, Kenya, Cambodia, South Africa, Bangladesh and Argentina.

Although the new paper from Klimek’s group includes a disclaimer that it is “by no means direct proof of electoral fraud,” it makes a strong case the Turkish elections were marred by malpractice. And, the authors wrote, the patterns of irregularities in the two elections, held 14 months apart, were barely distinguishable from each other. “We found exactly the same malpractices in exactly the same districts in 2018 as we did the year before,” Klimek says. Making that kind of connection is key to preventing fraud in future elections, he adds. “If you want to get some policy-relevant actions out of this kind of research, you need to be able to tell what happened with which likelihood in which geographical area,” he notes.

The researchers worked with data from the official Web site of the Turkish election commission. To detect signs of ballot stuffing, they used the number of voters, the number of valid ballots cast (turnout) and the total votes tallied by the winners (‘Yes’ in 2017’s referendum and for Pres. Recep Tayyip Erdogan in 2018) to create an “election fingerprint” for each of the polling stations they analyzed.

For the 2017 referendum, they crunched the numbers from 153,701 stations, grouped in 28,447 neighborhoods. For the 2018 election, they looked at 168,377 stations in 44,796 neighborhoods. When the data was plotted in two dimensions and compared with standardized fingerprints from trustworthy elections with normal distributions, Klemik’s team found “highly significant statistical support” for ballot stuffing in 11 percent of the polling stations they analyzed. (Ballot stuffing inflates both turnout and the percentage of winning votes.)

Election fingerprint analysis also turned up evidence of possible voter rigging at small, rural polling stations—which are less likely to be monitored by poll observers than large urban stations are, and where it is easier to identify the political leanings of individual voters. “That makes it much easier to conduct certain malpractices,” Klimek says, such as intimidating voters with an excessive police or military presence.

Walter Mebane, a professor of political science and statistics at the University of Michigan and co-author of a 2017 guide to election forensics for the U.S. Agency for International Development, urges caution when attributing election anomalies to possible fraud. “The problem is that many of the patterns that look irregular according to many statistical methods can be produced by strategic behavior, or normal politics,” he says. “You can tell that the pattern was manipulated or looks unusual, but you can’t tell why.”

Figuring out the “why” is the next big challenge, according to Mebane, a pioneer of the field. “Politics is weird, to use a technical term. All kinds of bizarre things can happen. I think the limit of election forensics, and this is the frontier of my research right now, is to try to see how well we can discriminate frauds from human behavior.”

An even more basic challenge faces researchers who want to use forensic tool kits to analyze U.S. elections—getting the data. “The way elections take place and are administered in the U.S. is not really up to the quality standards in other countries,” says Klimek, who tried and failed to apply some of his methods to the 2008 election. “The data quality was not good enough.” In most states, access to voter registration data is restricted mainly to the political parties, the candidates and some companies that work with them, Mebane says. 

After a 2016 presidential election marred by allegations of foreign meddling, the midterm contest looms amid concerns about voter suppression in Georgia and other states as well as unsubstantiated claims of widespread voter fraud by undocumented aliens. The most unexpected takeaway from electoral forensics may be that it is easier to analyze Russian elections than those in the U.S. “It’s really not much work to do this kind of analysis once you’ve got the data,” Klimek says. “With the algorithms we are talking about, it can be done in a couple of hours.”

1. New York and Brooklyn from Michael_Novakhov (111 sites): Brooklyn Eagle: City bars ‘unsafe’ demolition at S.W. Bowne building in Red Hook

The city has called a halt to demolition — again — at a historic Gowanus Canal-side industrial building that activists have been trying to save.

On Thursday, June 27, the city Buildings Department slapped Red Hook’s S.W. Bowne Grain Storehouse at 595 Smith St. with a Full Stop Work Order because of “unsafe demolition,” online records indicate.

The agency shut down the site following an inspection made in response to a complaint by a member of the public through the city’s 311 system, Department of Buildings spokesperson Andrew Rudansky told the Brooklyn Eagle.

“During the inspection, DOB found that the work-site scaffold was missing required guard rails and scaffold stacking pins,” he said. (Stacking pins are metal pieces used to put scaffolding frames together.)

“We also determined that the power lines adjacent to the site lacked proper protection from the demolition work,” Rudansky explained.

“DOB will continue to monitor the site for compliance with this Stop Work Order and all required safety regulations,” he added.

Before the tear-down can resume at 595 Smith St., the problems Rudansky enumerated must be remedied. Then the Buildings Department must reinspect the site and rescind the Stop Work Order.

The Chetrit Group, which owns the Bowne building, did not respond to a request from the Eagle for comment about the demolition process.

Last week, a demolition crew was able to take down a significant portion of a wall on the south end of the S.W. Bowne Grain Storehouse even though the Stop Work Order shortened its time on the job.

The brick-and-timber warehouse was constructed by entrepreneur Samuel Winter Bowne in the 1880s. It has played a vital role in the industrial history of the Gowanus Canal.

Preservation advocates led by the Gowanus Landmarking Coalition started campaigning last year to win city landmark designation for the S.W. Bowne Grain Storehouse, but were unsuccessful.

As the Eagle previously reported, there was a hiatus in the demolition from March through early May because of an earlier Stop Work Order. The Chetrit Group had gotten a demolition permit for the historic property in February.

Executives at the real estate firm told City Councilmember Carlos Menchaca during his first term in office that they wanted to build residential towers on the site. The Chetrit Group acquired the Bowne building in 2007 in a $14.5 million purchase of a package of properties, city Finance Department records indicate.

A June 2018 two-alarm fire damaged the south half of the Bowne building’s roof and fourth floor. Earlier this year, an FDNY spokesperson told the Eagle that the “incendiary fire” was “deliberately set.”

The Global Security News: 1. Russia from Michael_Novakhov (116 sites): Window on Eurasia — New Series: A Bad Sign: Kalimatov’s Priorities Don’t Include Most Important Concerns of Ingush Oppposition

Paul Goble
            Staunton, June 30 – The Ingush opposition has been very consistent in declaring that its most important issues are the freeing of political prisoners, the reversal of the border agreement with Chechnya that cost Ingushetia 26,000 hectares of land, and the restoration of direct elections for the head of the republic.
            But incoming republic head Makhmud-Ali Kalimatov in an interview with the Russian news agency TASS says his priorities are health care, agriculture and ecology, issues that are totally acceptable from Moscow’s point of view affect many Ingush but that do not indicate that he is ready to meet the Ingush opposition part way (tass.ru/politika/6612012).
            Ingush opposition leaders continue to say that they hope for dialogue with the new man (e.g., zamanho.com/?p=9955), but Kalimatov’s first programmatic statement suggests that is going to be more difficult to achieve than many had expected.  And that in turn has three major consequences, none of them good.
            First, it suggests that Kalimatov’s idea of beginning anew with a clean slate means accepting the border deal with Chechnya, likely what Moscow wants and certainly what Chechen leader Ramzan Kadyrov does, but something that will spark new protests in the coming weeks and months.
            Second, it makes it less likely that the new man will move quickly to release the political prisoners in Ingushetia lest those who have been behind bars move to organize protests on that issue and others. That could slow the revival of protests but it also could mean that new ones will be led by more radical people than before.
            And third, it indicates that Kalimatov’s honeymoon with the Ingush population will likely be shorter than many had expected. Neither Magas nor Moscow has the funds to make a big difference in the areas he has identified as priorities, and so the departure of Yunus-Bek Yevkurov is unlikely to be the turning point some had thought it would be.

Michael Novakhov – SharedNewsLinks℠: Insinuendo: Why the Muller Report Doth Repeat So Much

.

The Mueller report should have been a knockout blow to anti-Trump forces who invested their hopes in the special counsel. With Robert Mueller’s finding that the Trump campaign did not conspire with Russia to steal the 2016 election and that there was no clear path to indicting the president for obstruction, the enterprise should have shuddered to a stop.

Saying it once wasn’t enough.

Instead, those who were at first dumbfounded by the special counsel’s report have since found reasons to be buoyed by it – by its grudging tone, its sly assertions resembling proof, and its insistence that not being found guilty should not be confused with innocence. If you had to pick a single sentence that captures the style and substance of Mueller’s tome, you’d find it on page 2: “A statement that the investigation did not establish particular facts does not mean there was no evidence of those facts.”

Democratic members of the House have secured Mueller’s agreement to testify. They will encourage him to offer a sort of informal indictment of the president, something to justify impeachment. Something that can be winkled out of the Mueller report.

All of which calls for a closer reading of the 448-page document. What becomes clear is that the special counsel used a number of rhetorical devices to couch evidence and craft a narrative so that a document that ultimately clears the president can also be read as an indictment.

The first thing to note about the Mueller report is just how contentious it is. It isn’t a set of findings so much as an assertion of what the findings might have been if only there had been more evidence. It is like a closing argument in a criminal case already dismissed for lack of evidence but in which the prosecutor is determined to redeem what he can of his case. Mueller turns to a variety of strategies: hectoring repetition; the use of extraneous detail to add heft to flimsy assertion; and a resort to insinuation and innuendo to prejudice the reader against those who have escaped the dock.

Papadopoulos Again and Again

Ever since the debunking of Trump-Russia dirt paid for by the Democrats and compiled by the opposition firm Fusion GPS, government officials and conspiracists have insisted that the Steele dossier had nothing to do with launching the investigation. The story is that the FBI flew into action after learning that Trump campaign adviser George Papadopoulos had made an alarming statement to an Australian diplomat in a London bar, telling him about Russian intentions to interfere with the U.S. election.

From the first page of his report, the special counsel is eager to establish the narrative that that Papadopoulos, not Steele, sparked the initial investigation. Mueller writes that in May 2016 “Papadopoulos had suggested to a representative of [a] foreign government that the Trump Campaign had received indications from the Russian government that it could assist the Campaign through the anonymous release of information damaging to Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.”

But it’s not enough to say it once. Come page 6, Mueller writes, “Papadopoulos suggested to a representative of a foreign government that the Trump Campaign had received indications from the Russian government that it could assist the Campaign through the anonymous release of information damaging to candidate Clinton.”

Mueller repeats this claim nearly word for word again on pages 81, 89, and 93.

At least page 192 offers a hint of variation: The FBI “approached Papadopoulos for an interview” because of “his suggestion to a foreign government representative that Russia had indicated that it could assist the Campaign through the anonymous release of information damaging to candidate Clinton.”

Such relentless repetition might be dismissed as lazy cut-and-paste writing. But repetition is an ancient and effective tool of rhetoric.  The Greeks called it epimone; the Romans, commoratio. It can be used subtly and powerfully, as in “Brutus is an honorable man,” or it can be employed in a clumsy effort to pound home a weak claim, as in “Papadopoulos suggested…that the Trump Campaign…”

What makes the claim weak?

The problem starts with “Papadopoulos suggested.” What exactly did he say? “Suggested” implies he expressed himself indirectly. The report’s use of that squishy verb all six times it refers to the conversation is an admission that Papadopoulos did not directly make the explosive claim that allegedly spurred the FBI into action.  

The next part of the sentence is not only vague, but misleading – “Papadopoulos suggested … that the Trump campaign had received indications.”  

This implies that information allegedly given to Papadopoulos – an adviser to the campaign – was shared with the entire campaign. This is especially misleading because the report later says it found no evidence that Papadopoulos told anyone else on the campaign about the emails.

And then there’s the descriptor “received indications,” which is even more amorphous than “suggested.”  An “indication” could be anything from a light flashing Morse code to one of the grifters in “The Sting” putting a finger to the side of his nose. If Papadopoulos was told something, why not simply write he “was told”? The downside of the simple construction, from a prosecutor’s point of view, is that it lacks the implication that something furtive and sneaky is going on. “Receiving indications” by contrast, sounds suitably shady.

Robert Mueller: Did saying the “Russian government” really mean “connections to Russia”?

Where did those indications come from? The “Russian government,” according to the special counsel’s report. Finally, a precise and concrete claim. Unfortunately, it is also false.  The source of his information was Joseph Mifsud, whom the special counsel describes as a “London-based professor who had connections to Russia and traveled to Moscow in April 2016.” There is a difference between someone with unspecified “connections to Russia” and the “Russian government.”

The Mueller report makes another incorrect claim when it states the Russian government offered to “assist the [Trump] Campaign through the anonymous release of information that would be damaging to Hillary Clinton.”

There is no evidence that Papadopoulos said anything about a plan to “assist” Trump through “anonymous” action to the man in the London bar – whom the report oddly refers to as a “representative of a foreign government” when everyone knows he is Alexander Downer. As Downer told The Australian newspaper in April 2018, Papadopoulos “mentioned the Russians might use material that they have on Hillary Clinton in the lead-up to the election, which may be damaging.”

Put these corrections all together and the special counsel’s oft-repeated statement – “Papadopoulos suggested to a representative of a foreign government that the Trump Campaign had received indications from the Russian government that it could assist the Campaign through the anonymous release of information that would be damaging to Hillary Clinton” – should actually read “Papadopoulos said to Australian diplomat Alexander Downer that a professor who had traveled to Russia had told him Russia had damaging information about Hillary Clinton and might release it before the election.” This latter version isn’t just a far more accurate representation of what Papadopoulos said; it is also far less suggestive of any wrongdoing. But of course, if there’s less suggestion of wrongdoing there’s also less justification for the FBI to have taken the extreme step of investigating a presidential campaign.  

Insinuendo

Another technique the Mueller report uses to paint a far darker picture than its evidence establishes – and to indirectly defend questionable decisions by the FBI — is describing what would otherwise seem to be innocent actions with a raised eyebrow, implying some sort of ill-defined wrongdoing. The special counsel’s team prove themselves masters of that mix of insinuation and innuendo known as insinuendo.

Carter Page speaking at the New Economic School in Moscow: What was wrong with that?

Carter Page – the Naval Academy graduate whom the FBI spied on after it made dubious claims to the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court — is a particular target of this technique. Mueller urges readers to watch a speech Page delivered in Moscow in 2016, which the report describes: “In the speech, Page criticized the U.S. government’s foreign policy toward Russia, stating that ‘Washington and other Western capitals have impeded potential progress through their often hypocritical focus on ideas such as democratization, inequality, corruption and regime change.’”

It may be distasteful for an American to criticize his country on foreign soil, but it is hardly unusual and certainly not illegal. The report ratchets up the insinuendo when it reports that after Page delivered his speech at Moscow’s New Economic School, he and then-Russian Deputy Prime Minister Arkady Dvorkovich “shook hands at the commencement ceremony.”   All that and more, said with a stern and incriminating tone, and yet Mueller has to write a big however: “the investigation did not establish that Page coordinated with the Russian government in its efforts to interfere with the 2016 presidential election.”

Had the special counsel been less begrudging he might have pointed out that Page was under comprehensive federal surveillance for a year or more. Notwithstanding thoroughgoing scrutiny – secret wiretaps, multiple FBI interrogations, grand jury testimony, questioning by Congress – Carter Page remains unindicted. Not that you would know it given the special counsel’s censorious style.

Insinuendo isn’t just for Page, it’s for anyone the evidence alone is insufficient for an indictment. Take the participants in a State Department-organized conference coinciding with the 2016 Republican National Convention, Global Partners in Diplomacy. Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak was one of some 80 ambassadors in attendance. Mueller reports that Trump advisers Jeff Sessions and J.D. Gordon gave speeches. The latter appears to be suspect: “Gordon stated in pertinent part that the United States should have better relations with Russia.” Sessions’ speech was suspect too: He included a Q&A, you see, and one of the questions “may have been asked by Kislyak.” Mueller takes the time and space to include something that “may have” happened, and that if it did would be perfectly unobjectionable. The State Department organized a conference for ambassadors that included a question period, at which an ambassador [may have] asked a question. This is troubling?

The prosecutorial equivalent of SNL’s “Never mind”: Gilda Radner as

“Emily Litella.”

The Mueller team uses the same technique with the big picture. After detailing the nefarious actions of the Russians, Mueller writes that “[t]he investigation also identified numerous links between the Russian government and the Trump Campaign.” At last it seems the special counsel has taken out the handcuffs. The “Campaign expected it would benefit electorally from information stolen and released through Russian efforts.” But it turns out that links and expectations are as vague and empty as suggestions and indications. Because just when the special counsel seems ready to stage a perp walk, the frustrated lawman offers a bitter coda: that “the investigation did not establish that members of the Trump Campaign conspired or coordinated with the Russian government in its election interference activities.”

It’s the prosecutorial equivalent of Emily Litella’s “Never mind.”

The Mueller report regularly uses a common variant of insinuendo – spinuendo – when it interprets a situation in the worst light before correcting the misimpression it has created.

Regarding early discussions surrounding a deal that never got off the ground, the report states: “Candidate Trump signed a Letter of lntent for Trump Tower Moscow by November 2015, and in January 2016 Trump Organization executive Michael Cohen emailed and spoke about the project with the office of Russian government press secretary Dmitry Peskov.” It sounds as though Cohen was contacting the highest echelons of the Kremlin. But Mueller knows better and eventually lets us in on the fact that the “office” of Peskov is not synonymous with Peskov himself. In an unamused tone, the special counsel recounts the comedy of crossed wires and garbled email addresses by which Cohen finally got, not Peskov but Peskov’s secretary, on the phone. Cohen made his pitch; the secretary took notes and promised a follow-up that never happened.

Konstantin Kilimnik: Had “ties to Russian intelligence,” but was welcome at Foggy Bottom.

Even as he puts the darkest possible gloss on the most pedestrian of acts and connections, Mueller whistles past genuinely alarming information. He sometimes does both in the same paragraph. The report includes an extended section on Paul Manafort’s meetings with his sometime Russian-Ukrainian business associate Konstantin Kilimnik. “Manafort twice met with Kilimnik in person during the campaign period.” This takes on malign implications given that the special counsel introduced Kilimnik back on page 6 with the damning allegation that “the FBI assesses [him] to have ties to Russian intelligence.” We’re told that Kilimnik traveled to New York to see Manafort, a very dire development, no doubt. But then the special counsel finishes the paragraph with the throw-away line that “Kilimnik then traveled to Washington, D.C.” where he “had pre-arranged meetings with State Department employees.”

Isn’t it more startling that someone with “ties to Russian intelligence” is welcome at Foggy Bottom than that he had access to Paul Manafort, who never had any position in the federal government? Part of the answer may be provided by John Solomon in the Hill, who reported that “hundreds of pages of government documents — which special counsel Robert Mueller possessed since 2018 — describe Kilimnik as a ‘sensitive’ intelligence source for the U.S. State Department who informed on Ukrainian and Russian matters.” That important piece of contextual information is not in the redacted report.

The Schertel-Sachsenberg-System

Back at the State Department’s Global Partners in Diplomacy event at the GOP convention, the special counsel’s team is sleuthing: “Later that evening, Gordon attended a reception as part of the conference,” the Mueller report reads. “Gordon ran into Kislyak as the two prepared plates of food, and they decided to sit at the same table to eat.” They prepared plates of food together! “They were joined at that table by the ambassadors from Azerbaijan and Kazakhstan,” and by Carter Page, who was still a Trump campaign adviser. “As they ate, Gordon and Kislyak talked for what Gordon estimated to have been three to five minutes, during which Gordon again mentioned that he meant what he said in his speech about improving U.S.-Russia relations.”

Sergey Kislyak: buffet conspirator?

It’s a particular prosecutorial skill to take even the most innocuous of events – in this case five minutes of empty happy talk about world peace between bites of buffet-table food – and make it sound pernicious.

But there’s more going on here than just insinuendo. Note the many specifics that go nowhere. Gordon and Kislyak are joined by the ambassadors from Azerbaijan and Kazakhstan. From the moment they are mentioned, they disappear. Carter Page also vanishes after being placed at the same table. Gordon and Kislyak talk not for “a few minutes” but for “3 to 5 minutes.” Why all the trivial particulars? The only thing that could make that paragraph a more perfect example of useless detail employed to prove nothing in particular would have been if the special counsel had managed to learn what each had actually put on his plate. Just imagine: Kislyak served himself 3 to 5 spoonfuls of pesto pasta salad with feta cheese, followed by…

Once upon a time, professors of persuasion frowned on prose cluttered with extraneous detail.  Some 120 years ago, John Franklin Genung wrote a widely used primer, “The Working Principles of Rhetoric.” He labeled as “the untutored” writers “to whom it has never occurred that one fact is more important than another; who waste time in fixing some date or circumstance that is of no consequence; who take as much pains with utterly irrelevant details as with essential.”

He would not have smiled on the Mueller team’s efforts.

Ian Fleming: The Mueller report adopts his “Shertel-Sachsenberg” technique.

On the other hand, Professor Genung never had the opportunity to read Ian Fleming, who used obscure and irrelevant detail to create a sense of reality in the midst of spy-story fantasy. In the James Bond novel “Thunderball” Fleming describes the villain’s super-fast yacht as having been built “by the only firm in the world to have successfully adapted the Shertel-Sachsenberg system to commercial use.” Novelist Kingsley Amis wrote that Fleming’s readers “couldn’t care less whether the Shertel-Sachsenberg system works the steering or the lavatory flush.” The point, according to Amis, is to take the “fantastic elements in the story” and use detail, however extraneous, to bolt “them down to some sort of reality.”

The tension between the fantastic and the real may explain why Volume II of the Mueller report descends into arguments among special counsel team factions. They are at odds over whether their enterprise can be saved by bringing the president up on obstruction of justice charges. That argument is likely to continue when Mueller goes to Capitol Hill. Look for special attention to Volume II, section III (B) 2, which offers those eager to pursue impeachment the legal justification they’ve been looking for: “Separation-of-Powers Principles Support the Conclusion that Congress May Validly Prohibit Corrupt Obstructive Acts Carried Out Through the President’s Official Powers.”

While they fight it out, we might want to go back to where the whole thing is said to have begun, the London bar where Papadopoulos and Downer had a drink. For all the special counsel’s attention to detail, he seems to have neglected to mention what the two were drinking that fateful evening.

According to Downer, they each had a gin & tonic. If only they had been drinking Moscow Mules.
