Senate Reps Want Trump to Keep Mueller…What Will He Do?

April 11, 2018

untitled (234)

Evidently, the Senate’s Republican Leadership disagrees with Former Secret Service Agent Dan Bongino.

According to ChicagoTribune.com,

Senate Republican leaders sharply warned President Donald Trump not to fire Robert Mueller III on Tuesday – but they once again stopped short of embracing legislation to protect the special counsel. Their reluctance to take more forceful action came as Democratic leaders voiced new urgency to shield Mueller a day after Trump said he had been encouraged by some to dismiss the special counsel. At least one rank-and-file Republican endorsed moving forward soon with a bill to protect him.

But Senate GOP leaders were not budging from their position against taking preventive action, underscoring the downside they have long seen in being too confrontational against the leader of their party. Even at moments of great uncertainty about what Trump will do next, congressional Republican leaders have opted not to further agitate him.

“I haven’t seen clear indication yet that we needed to pass something to keep him from being removed, because I don’t think that’s going to happen,” said Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky. McConnell did not elaborate on why he believed that.

Sen. John Cornyn, R-Texas, his top deputy, said he also didn’t believe Mueller would be removed. Asked why, he replied, “I think the consequences of doing so are some that not even the president can anticipate. And I think it would be a mistake.”

Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Charles Grassley, R-Iowa, issued Trump a sharper warning. He said on Fox Business Network it would be “suicide for the president to want, to talk about firing Mueller.” Grassley said the less the president said about it, “the better off he would be, the stronger his presidency would be.”

Grassley has refused to consider a pair of bills released last year to protect the special counsel before they were merged into one. A combined bill that a bipartisan group of senators have been working on would institute a 10-day delay before any order from a top Justice Department official to fire a special counsel could take effect, according to a congressional aide with knowledge of the legislation.

The ousted special counsel would have those 10 days to appeal the decision to a three-judge panel before their termination is complete. The bill would also require all staff and documents be preserved during that window.

Why shouldn’t the President of the United States of America fire Special Counsel Robert Mueller and his “investigative” cadre of Democratic Donors?

Well, as per usual, the Godfather of Conservative Talk Radio, Rush Limbaugh, has an opinion on that…

The worst thing Trump could do is start firing people. That’s what he’s being goaded into doing. Many of you think that’s what Trump should do. Many of you think this is the just and proper thing. But this is more than just and proper right now. This is about survival. And Trump and his people and by extension those of you who voted for Trump are up against people who aren’t playing by any rules. There’s no reason you should, either, then. There aren’t any rules governing what’s happening here. They’re violating rules. The first rule violated was the appointment of Mueller! He should never have been appointed, and when he was, he wasn’t given a specific crime to pursue, unlimited budget, no boundaries on where he could go. By the way, that’s the interesting thing here. On this whole raid of Trump’s lawyer’s office, Mueller didn’t do this. Very wisely.

What Mueller did was refer this to the U.S. attorney’s office for the famous now SDNY, Southern District of New York Manhattan. That is the mother court. In the DOJ the Southern District of Manhattan is the court. The district for Washington is number two. This is the court.

So Mueller refers what they think they found with Cohen. By the way, let’s review what they think they have with Cohen. The charge here bank fraud campaign contribution, Washington Post, the FBI was looking for evidence of bank fraud and illegal campaign contributions. That’s what all of this, according to the Washington Post, is about, and their headline: “Michael Cohen is in Serious Legal Jeopardy.”

The bank fraud is supposed to be the $130,000 loan that Cohen took out to pay the porn star, Stormy Daniels, whom Trump had a meeting with, whatever happened at it, one time 12 years ago. I didn’t know it was against the law to take out a loan to pay somebody for a nondisclosure agreement, but they’re saying that it was an illegal campaign contribution.

Cohen’s payment, illegal campaign contribution. The reason is he was paying her to shut up a couple of weeks before the election. And that we’re told is the equivalent of a campaign contribution, and it’s way in excess of the individual limit. Can you imagine the unreported contributions in the Clinton years alone? You want to talk about illegal campaign donations, Hillary Clinton was selling her presidency all over the world via the Clinton Crime Family Foundation which shut down after she lost.

There was no more reason to keep it open because there was no more reason to give the Clintons any money! And it was never once looked at.

But, that’s different. It’s always different when Democrats do it.

Besides, quite frankly, the GOP Elite do not care if President Trump gets impeached or not.

Hillary would not be successor, not matter how long the Liberal National Temper Tantrum lasts.

Vice-President Mike Pence would become President, which the Republican Establishment would not mind at all.

You see, gentle readers, they way the feel about the matter is that good ol’ Mike Pence is a Professional Politician, just like they are.

Therefore, they feel like he would be “easier” to get along with”, i.e. more malleable.

The problem with their assumption is the fact that Mike Pence is a very good man, who relies on his Christian Faith to guide him.

Meanwhile, their intended prey, President Donald J. Trump, had dinner last night with Harvard Law Professor Emeritus, the renowned Alan Dershowitz, who said Tuesday that the raid on Michael Cohen’s office was unconstitutional.

“Remember who comprises the firewall and taint teams [the investigate teams dealing with the raid]. It’s ‘other FBI agents, prosecutors and government officials who have no right under the Fourth and Sixth Amendments, even to see private or confidential materials, regardless whether it is ever used against a defendant.”

So, now, everyone is wondering exactly what President Trump is going to do about this abuse of power by Special Counsel Robert Mueller and the Deep State-riddled FBI.

Hopefully, he will come up with a strategy which will effectively squash this coup by the Democrats.

Because if they get their way and somehow remove Trump from office, thereby negating the votes of average Americans in 30 states in America’s Heartland, it will threaten to split America apart at the seams.

Which, just like the Marxists in other countries before them, is probably exactly what those who are carrying out and supporting this Deep State Coup want.

Until He Comes,

FBI Raids Trump’s Attorney’s Office…Are We in the Middle of a Coup?

April 10, 2018

trump-target-600-li

On the evening of April 14, 1865, John Wilkes Booth, a famous actor and Confederate sympathizer, assassinated President Abraham Lincoln at Ford’s Theatre in Washington, D.C. The attack came only five days after Confederate General Robert E. Lee surrendered his massive army at Appomattox Court House, Virginia, effectively ending the American Civil War.

…He and his co-conspirators believed the simultaneous assassination of Lincoln, Vice President Andrew Johnson and Secretary of State William H. Seward–the president and two of his possible successors–would throw the U.S. government into disarray.

The Lincolns arrived late for the comedy, but the president was reportedly in a fine mood and laughed heartily during the production. Lincoln occupied a private box above the stage with his wife Mary Todd Lincoln, a young army officer named Henry Rathbone and Rathbone’s fiancé, Clara Harris, the daughter of New York Senator Ira Harris.

At 10:15, Booth slipped into the box and fired his .44-caliber single-shot derringer pistol into the back of Lincoln’s head. After stabbing Rathbone, who immediately rushed at him, in the shoulder, Booth leapt onto the stage and shouted, “Sic semper tyrannis!” (“Thus ever to tyrants!”–the Virginia state motto). – USHistory.com

While no assassination attempt has been tried against our current President, Donald J. Trump, I believe that America is witnessing a full-blown coup in progress.

FoxNews.com reports that

President Trump reacted angrily Monday to news that federal agents had raided the office and home of his personal attorney, Michael Cohen — calling the action “disgraceful” and describing special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation as “an attack on our country.”

Before a White House meeting with top military advisers, Trump took several minutes to blast the raid and the Mueller probe.

“It’s a disgraceful situation. It’s a total witch hunt,” said Trump, who claimed that he had “given over a million pages in documents to the special counsel. They continue to just go forward … and I have this witch hunt constantly going on for over 12 months now. Actually it’s much more than that. You could say right after I won the [2016 Republican] nomination it started.”

Trump also accused Mueller’s investigators of being “the most biased group of people [with] the biggest conflicts of interest” and said Attorney General Jeff Sessions “made a terrible mistake for the country” when he recused himself from overseeing the Russia investigation last year.

A source close to the White House told Fox News’ John Roberts that the raid showed that the Mueller investigation “is out of control” and was a “demonstration of bad faith” on the part of the special counsel.

“What in the name of God is Mueller doing?” the source told Roberts. “He wants to take down the President.”

Cohen’s attorney, Stephen Ryan, said Monday’s raid was conducted by the U.S. Attorney’s office in Manhattan and was based at least partly on a referral from Mueller.

“The decision by the U.S. Attorney’s Office in New York to conduct their investigation using search warrants is completely inappropriate and unnecessary,” Ryan said in a statement. “It resulted in the unnecessary seizure of protected attorney client communications between a lawyer and his clients.”

A source close to the White House also agreed with Trump’s take on the alleged bias of Mueller investigators, saying that “the hiring of all those Clinton people for Mueller’s team was not an accident. It was done to bring down the president.”

Gentle readers, do you get the feeling that you are smack dab in the middle of a conspiracy at the higher levels of our government, designed to circumvent both the Constitution and the right of American Citizens to choose our President?

For a year now, we have been hearing how Special Counsel Mueller’s integrity is above reproach. I do not personally know the man, so I have no first-hand knowledge of whether it is or not.

However, is it just me…or does it appear to be a gross Conflict of Interest for the Special Counsel and several members of his staff, who are conducting an exhaustive, no boundaries investigation searching for possible malfeasance of the part of a sitting Republican President and his staff, to have been members of a Law Firm with a very long and lucrative history of heavy donations to the Democratic Party?

Say what? You didn’t know that 16 members of the Mueller Investigate Team are Democrat Party Donors and that Mueller and others worked for the huge, prestigious law firm of WilmerHale?

Well…

Pull up your socks and listen to this…

If you look at the Total Percentage of Political Contributions made by this Law Firm that Robert Mueller and several of his “investigators” worked for, you will notice that over the last 28 years, Wilmer Hale has donated approximately 8.5 million dollars to individual political candidates with 66% of those funds going to Democrats and only 31% going to Republicans.

Now. let’s get down to the number crunching….

Just for fun, let’s look at WilmerHale’s political donations for the 2016 Election Cycle. They gave $1,484,082 in total contributions. 76% of that total went to Democrats, including I am sure, a sizable chunk to the Presidential Campaign of Hillary Clinton. Only 21% of their Political Donations for the year of 2016 went to Republican Candidates.

Special Counsel Robert Mueller was a partner at Hale and Dorr LLP, an affiliate of WilmerHale, from 1993-1995. In 1994, that Law Firm gave a Total of $64,525 in Political Donations to Individual Candidates. $40,550 went to Democrats. $23,975 went to Republicans. The percentages broke down to 63% and 37%, respectively.

Robert Mueller was hired at WilmerHale in March of 2014 and stayed there until he was appointed Special Counsel in May of 2017.

That means that he was a contributor through his Law Firm to two Election Cycles, the 2014 Midterm Elections and the 2016 Presidential Election.

Additionally, Mueller’s involvement in the Uranium One Democratic Collusion with Russia places him in another position of possible Conflict of Interest. Even if he is the man of integrity that all of the Washington Establishment claims him to be, the activities of the FBI Before, during, and after the Uranium One Deal and during the past ten months have been less than exemplary, to say the least.

Mueller’s history with the FBI, the WilmerHale Law Firm, and as a Washington Democratic Establishment Insider makes his motives suspicious to say the least.

The Interim Federal Attorney for the Southern District of New York, whom Mueller got to facilitate yesterday’s raid on the offices of Trump’s attorney, is Geoffrey Berman, who was appointed by AG Jeff Sessions last January.

Berman was the co-managing shareholder of the New Jersey office of the law firm of Greenberg Traurig when he was appointed.

Per OpenSecrets.org, Greenburg Traurig has donated $291,498 to Democrats and $138,739 to Republicans so far in the 2018 Election Cycle.

Do you see a pattern here, gentle readers?

You have Washington Insiders, Deep State Operatives if you will, working to overturn the will of the American People, as expressed in the Presidential Election held on November 8, 2016.

And a Washington Insider, seated as the Attorney General of the United States of America, recusing himself from the whole thing.

Mr. President, if you and the First Lady are invited to go to the theatre before this whole plot plays out, please politely refuse.

I’m just sayin’.

Until He Comes,
