GOP Senators Warned Barr That Mueller Staff “Selectively” Used E-mails in Court Filings to Give “Nefarious” Impression

April 5, 2019

Was there Democrat political bias going on in the editing of e-mails selected as potential evidence by Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Investigative Staff?

Was that same bias involved in the FBI’s original Russia probe?

FoxNews.com reports that

Shortly before Special Counsel Robert Mueller filed his report on the Russia investigation last month, Sens. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, and Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., alerted Attorney General Bill Barr to what they described as the “selective” use of emails in Mueller court filings — as well as potential “improper political influence, misconduct, and mismanagement” in the FBI’s original Russia probe.

In a March 8 letter, Grassley and Graham referred Barr to a letter sent to Mueller in late 2017 that alleged his investigators had cherry-picked details from emails to include in court documents, urging him to review the materials. They also notified him that they had asked DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz a year earlier to review the original FBI probe.

It’s unclear if Barr reviewed the senators’ letter; a DOJ representative declined to comment on the missive.

But Fox News is told the lawmakers wanted Barr to have this material before he reviewed the Mueller report, out of concern some emails were selectively quoted to give a “nefarious” impression.

Fox News has also obtained the 2017 letter (above) from Grassley to Mueller, which spelled out the lawmakers’ concerns about the “absence of additional context” in the court filings — as well as concerns over how those documents were covered in the media. “The glaring lack of [context] feeds speculation and innuendo that distorts the facts,” Grassley wrote at the time.

In their March letter to Barr, Grassley and Graham pointed specifically to emails quoted in the Statement of Offense against former Trump adviser George Papadopoulos.

That court filing said Papadopoulos emailed another campaign official in May 2016 with the subject line, “Request from Russia to meet Mr. Trump.” The document said the email stated that Russia “has been eager to meet Mr. Trump for quite sometime and have been reaching out to me to discuss,” adding in a footnote that the official forwarded the email to another campaign official asking to discuss: “We need someone to communicate that DT is not doing these trips. It should be someone low level in the campaign so as not to send any signal.”

The senators said media outlets then seized on the fragments to report a “Campaign official suggested ‘low level’ staff should go to Russia.” However, they said the full emails — obtained from the Trump campaign — tell a different story.

“In full context, the emails in question actually show that the Trump Campaign wanted someone ‘low level’ to decline these types of invitations,” Grassley and Graham wrote in the letter to Barr.

The senators added: “Another citation was reported by some news outlets as evidence that the campaign, notably Papadopoulos and Sam Clovis, encouraged personnel to meet with the Russians.” This line in the original court document said that a campaign supervisor (later identified as Clovis) told Papadopoulos “I would encourage you” and another adviser to “make the trip” if possible, with regard to a meeting with Russians.

The senators wrote, however, that “additional context shows that Papadopoulos had conversations with representatives from multiple governments, not just Russia, and that Clovis had opposed any trip to Russia for Mr. Trump and the campaign.”

Papadopoulos pleaded guilty to making false statements to FBI agents in October 2017 in connection to the Russia investigation and is currently on a 12-month supervised release from federal prison. He is now seeking a pardon from Trump.

Meanwhile, in late February of last year, Graham and Grassley also sent a letter to Horowitz requesting that his office look into “potential improper political influence, misconduct, and mismanagement” of the counterintelligence and criminal investigations into possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia before Mueller’s appointment.

“The referral was based in part on materially inconsistent statements reportedly made by Christopher Steele, the author of the anti-Trump dossier funded by the Democratic National Committee and the Clinton campaign during the 2016 presidential election,” their letter to Barr states.

It continues: “The documents we have reviewed also raise questions about the role Bruce Ohr, a senior Justice Department official whose wife worked for Fusion GPS, had in passing allegations from Steele and Fusion GPS to the FBI after the FBI had terminated Mr. Steele as a source.”

The IG’s office is reviewing potential surveillance abuses by the FBI, as well as leaks out of the bureau and improper gifts received by officials.

Good luck with all that.

Given what we know about the make-up of the Special Counsel’s Investigative Staff, it is a wonder that the findings contained in the Mueller Report proved what President Trump had been saying all along: NO COLLUSION.

I find it puzzling that more has not been made as to who the “man behind the curtain” was who was controlling the actions of the DOJ, FBI, and the rest of the Deep State Operatives who began their mission even before Trump officially became the Republican Presidential Candidate.

Of course, they were leaking to the media.

There is so much obvious stuff that we have found out about this operation, including things which seems odd on their own until you put 2 + 2 together.

For example, why did Barack Hussein Obama move into a house with his Girl Friday, Valerie Jarrett, just scant blocks from the White House, instead of leaving town like every other President has in the past?

Why did Special Counsel Robert Mueller hire 17 Democratic Donors as his Special Investigators?

Why did Mueller go silent and Obama reappear into the national spotlight with the Midterm Elections just a couple of months away?

Why did Robert Woodward and the New York Times publish a book and an op ed using stories from “unnamed sources” as to how awful the Trump White House was right before the Midterms?

Average Americans remain extremely skeptical concerning the actions taken against Trump by the Department of Justice and the FBI.

Americans between the coasts believed for over two years that Mueller and his “17 Angry Democrats” were nothing but a political lynch mob, tools of the Democratic Party.

And speaking of….Democrats ( you thought I was going to say “tools” didn’t you?) Former President Barack Hussein Obama was not well received at all by average Americans with his ego-driven diatribe against President Trump and the Economic Recovery which America is experiencing.

In summary, what I trying to say is what a lot of us have been thinking and saying for well over two years:

The Democrats, in conjunction with Career Washington Bureaucrats working in various aspects of government, including the DOJ and the FBI, were performing surveillance and working against Donald J. Trump, both when he was a candidate and throughout his Presidency. And, they were following orders from President Obama in order to secure the Presidency for Hillary Clinton.

It’s time for Attorney General Barr to investigate this entire matter and for President Trump to get the plunger and to drain this part of the Swamp.

Mueller Probe Ends…Dems’ Temper Tantrum Continues…Captain Ahab Would Be So Proud

March 23, 2019

getimagecontent85ni23ny-0

“He tasks me; he heaps me; I see in him outrageous strength, with an inscrutable malice sinewing it. That inscrutable thing is chiefly what I hate; and be the white whale agent, or be the white whale principal, I will wreak that hate upon him. Talk to me not of blasphemy, man; I’d smite the sun if it insulted me” – Captain Ahab, “Moby Dick” by Herman Melville

FoxNews.com reports that

House Intelligence Committee Chairman Rep. Adam Schiff rejected reports that no more Mueller indictments are coming, and suggested he would call the special counsel before a House panel if necessary to learn what is in the report.

“If necessary, we will call Bob Mueller or others before our committee, I would imagine the judiciary committee may call the attorney general if necessary,” the California Democrat said during an interview on CNN.

“At the end of the day, the department is under a statutory obligation to provide our committee with any information regarding significant intelligence activities, including counterintelligence. And it’s hard to imagine anything more significant than what Bob Mueller has been investigating.

“We have a right to be informed, and we will demand to be informed about it.”

Schiff was then asked if he would be satisfied if “the most sensitive information” obtained by Mueller was only shared with the so-called “gang of eight.”

“No, it would not suffice. Now, there may be a select sub-section of information they feel they can only share because of the very sensitive sources which derived the information, but he volumes of information that has been found needs to be shared with the whole committee so we can evaluate what steps have to be taken to protect the country.”

“We’re going to need to have the same sort of discovery that we saw during the last Congress, and indeed it may be far more extensive than that, to make sure that U.S. policy is driven by U.S. interest and not because the president or anyone around him is looking to make money from the Kremlin on a tower or anything else.

Schiff did not answer host Wolf Blitzer’s question as to whether or not any potential testimony would be public or behind closed doors.

In a separate interview with MSNBC, Schiff disagreed with reports there will be no more indictments forthcoming, saying instead it is “entirely possible, if not likely, that there will be” more.

“Well, what it means is that the office of the special counsel, which is essentially a contract attorney to the Justice Department, that that office won’t be bringing any further indictments,” he said.

“It doesn’t mean, of course, that main justice or the Seventh District of New York and the Eastern District or others may not bring indictments,”

“In fact, given the lengthy redactions in many of the pleadings of the special counsel eluding to other investigations, I think it’s entirely possible if not likely that there will be other indictments.

“Now, how central or peripheral they’ll be to the core issues of potential conspiracy is yet to be determined.”

President Trump’s legal team projected confidence Friday that Special Counsel Robert Mueller did not find collusion connected to the president, as he turned over the results of his exhaustive probe into Russian meddling during the 2016 presidential election.

“This marks the end of the Russia investigation. We await a disclosure of the facts,” attorney Rudy Giuliani told Fox News late Friday. “We are confident that there is no finding of collusion by the president and this underscores what the president has been saying from the beginning — that he did nothing wrong.”

Giuliani’s statement comes after Mueller transmitted his report to Attorney General William Barr.

The conclusions are not yet known, but Barr indicated he might be able to advise Congress of the main takeaways as early as this weekend.

That alone was cause for optimism in Trump world.

“This is a grand slam for President Trump. If Barr says he can brief Congress by this weekend, that means he has nothing,” said Joe diGenova, a former U.S. attorney who has advised Trump on the probe.

Last night,a repeat of the night of November 8, 2016, was a great night for Liquor stores and stores that carry Kleenex.

The Far Left Democratic Party and all of their Hive-mind “New Bolsheviks” will be proving in the months to come before the 2020 Presidential Election that denial truly is not just a river in Egypt.

While it was definitely a hoot to watch the likes of Pelosi, Schiff, and Schumer attempt to make demands of Attorney General Barr, it made me wonder to what lengths the Democrats up on the Hill will go in order to try to obstruct, impede, and even end the Presidency of Donald J. Trump.

The thing is, if they spend the next two years and a ton of American Taxpayers’ money doing nothing but holding “investigate meetings” in order to attack the President and his family, the Far Left Democrats will most assuredly lose in 2020.

Why?

They will have shown their backsides way too often to average American Voters who elected Donald J. Trump as President because they were sick and tired of the Washingtonian Status Quo.

If the Democrat are ever to have even had a chance in the 2020 Presidential Election, it sure would not be by siding with those on the Far Left end of the Political Spectrum in their demented obsession to somehow get Trump out of office, while not championing any sort of legislation which would benefit those average Americans mentioned earlier.

Just like Captain Ahab’s obsession with the Great White Whale, Moby Dick, led to his and his crew’s doom, so will the Democrats’ obsession with extricating President Donald J. Trump from the Oval Office doom their political future as a viable party which average Americans can relate to.

The Democrats’ embracing of special interest groups, their advocacy of the Socialist brand of Marxism, and their obsession to destroy Trump, are the perfect storm of tone-deafness towards those Americans who could actually give them the political power which they so intensely crave.

However, their hatred of us average Americans, whom they have referred to as “Deplorables”, and their embracing of so many things which normal people living in America’s Heartland view as “anti-American”, will doom the Democrats, like Captain Ahab, to a political watery grave.

What makes me so sure?

Well, since my family were Southern Democrats until Ronald Wilson Reagan ran for President, I guess that you can just…

“Call me Ishmael”.

The Manafort Sentencing, the New Charges, the Mueller Probe, and the SDNY – The Ties That Bind

March 14, 2019

untitled (267)

FoxNews.com reports that

Ex-Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort was indicted on a raft of state charges in New York Wednesday – moments after a federal judge handed down a sentence in a separate case that ensured the longtime GOP operative will serve nearly seven more years in prison.

The New York indictment on mortgage fraud, conspiracy, and other state charges alleges that the 69-year-old Manafort and others falsified business records to illegally obtain millions of dollars. The new charges were announced by Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance just minutes after U.S. District Court Judge Amy Berman Jackson, of the District of Columbia, sentenced Manafort as part of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation, leaving him with 81 months to serve behind bars as part of that case.

Vance’s charges are at the state level, and allege that Manafort committed residential mortgage fraud, attempted residential mortgage fraud, conspiracy and falsification of business records. If convicted of all charges, Manafort could face up to 25 years in prison.

“No one is beyond the law in New York,” Vance said in a statement Wednesday. “Following an investigation commenced by our office in March 2017, a Manhattan grand jury has charged Mr. Manafort with state criminal violations which strike at the heart of New York’s sovereign interests, including the integrity of our residential mortgage market.”

According to the indictment, Manafort, from Dec. 22, 2015 through Jan. 17, 2017, “engaged in a scheme constituting a systematic ongoing course of conduct with intent to defraud more than one person and to obtain property from more than one person by false and fraudulent pretenses, representations and promises, and so obtained property with a value in excess of one thousand dollars from one and more such persons.”

Meanwhile, minutes earlier in Washington D.C., Jackson nearly doubled Manafort’s prison term. Jackson’s term was for 73 months in connection with Manafort’s guilty plea related to foreign lobbying and witness tampering. But Jackson ordered a portion to be served concurrently with a 47-month sentence given by Judge T.S. Ellis in federal court in Virginia last week. Manafort, though, was credited with nine months time served.

The sentencing concluded one of the highest-profile cases to emerge from Mueller’s investigation into Russian meddling and potential collusion with Trump campaign associates, though the charges against Manafort did not pertain to Russia collusion or any work he did with the Trump campaign in 2016.

In a related story from 12/8/17 found on TheHIll.com,

Conservative group FreedomWatch is arguing for the dismissal of the judge presiding over its lawsuit seeking the removal of Robert Mueller from the special counsel investigation into Russian interference in the presidential election, citing the judge’s political bias toward Democrats. 

The group, helmed by conservative lawyer Larry Klayman, also alleges that Judge Amy Berman Jackson has a “manifest conflict of interest” in the case because she is also presiding over the trial of Paul Manafort, President Trump’s former campaign chairman who has been charged in connection with Mueller’s investigation.

FreedomWatch in November sued to force the Justice Department to investigate leaks coming from the special counsel and alleged conflicts of interest among staff, arguing that Mueller should be removed from the case. 

In a new motion filed in U.S. district court in Washington, the conservative group argues that Jackson should recuse herself or be disqualified from the case, citing her “inherent manifest political biases and conflicts of interest.” 

In particular, Klayman argues that Jackson exhibited a “deep-seated favoritism toward Democrat political interests” and Hillary Clinton, Trump’s Democratic opponent in the presidential race, when she dismissed a case he litigated on behalf of the parents of two Americans killed in the 2012 Benghazi terror attacks. 

In that case, the plaintiffs alleged that Clinton’s use of a private email server to transmit sensitive information during her time as secretary of State led to the deaths of their sons.

They also alleged that Clinton defamed the fallen Americans when she publicly disputed their accounts of the circumstances around the attack on the campaign trail. Jackson dismissed the lawsuit in May.

Klayman also argues that Jackson “rushed” to issue an order to show cause in the FreedomWatch case against the Justice Department, which he says “evidences her mindset of having pre-judged this matter from the inception.”

Huh.

In perhaps another related story posted Tuesday by the CBS Local Affiliate in Dallas/Ft. Worth.

United States Representative John Ratcliffe (R-TX) tweeted late Tuesday that, according to former Federal Bureau of Investigation lawyer Lisa Page, President Barack Obama’s Department of Justice was influencing the FBI’s investigation into the Hillary Clinton classified email investigation.

“Lisa Page confirmed to me under oath that the FBI was ordered by the Obama DOJ not to consider charging Hillary Clinton for gross negligence in the handling of classified information,” Ratcliffe tweeted.

What makes things interesting is that Judge Jackson is a Liberal Democrat, who was nominated for her position by Hillary Clinton’s Boss as Secretary of State, President Barack Hussein Obama.

As far as the New York charges filed against Manafort are concerned, isn’t it interesting how so much of the fallout and judicial action being taken in the “Russian Collusion Investigation by Mueller and his Democratic Lynch Mob is centered around the State of New York, specifically the Southern District of New York in addition to the courtroom of Judge Amy Berman Jackson?

The SDNY has been the stomping grounds of several of those involved in this ongoing Legal Lynch Mob out to get President Trump, including Former FBI Director Comey, FBI IG Horowitz, Mueller Investigator Andrew Weissman, and Manhattan DA Cyrus Vance, Jr.

All of them either worked in that office or had judicial standing in that district.

For a long time, I have been stating that the Mueller Investigation, otherwise known as the Russian Collusion Fairy Tale, was like a giant spider’s web, leading back to the Obama Administration, during which the Deep State Operation to stop Donald J. Trump from becoming President began.

I also observed early on that the Southern District of New York was playing a major role, as well.

As the late, great Leonard Nimoy as Mr. Spock used to observe,

Fascinating.

Mueller Probe “Near the End Game” Per Sources

February 21, 2019

Trump-Mueller

FoxNews.com reports that

Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia probe is wrapping up soon, and a source familiar with the investigation tells Fox News it is “near the end game” — although there has been no formal notification to President Trump’s legal team that Mueller’s work is completed.

Exiting Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who oversaw the Mueller probe for 18 months until the recent confirmation of AG William Barr, had said privately he intended to remain in his role until the Mueller report was delivered to Congress. On Tuesday, the White House announced that Deputy Secretary of Transportation Jeff Rosen would replace Rosenstein.

Sources close to the investigative process have told Fox News that the high-level shakeup at Justice — with Barr assembling his new team, and Rosenstein planning to leave by mid-March — is a sign that the stars are aligning for the probe’s conclusion.

The DOJ has not confirmed it is planning an announcement on the inquiry, and neither Mueller’s team nor the DOJ responded to Fox News’ request for comment.

Also unclear is whether the final Mueller report will be made public. Barr testified during his confirmation hearings that, as he understands the regulations governing the special counsel, the report will be confidential – and any report that goes to Congress or the public will be authored by the attorney general.

Some Democrats sounded the alarm after Barr’s testimony, with Connecticut Democratic Sen. Richard Blumenthal charging that Barr indicated he’d exploit legal “loopholes” to hide Mueller’s final report from the public and to resist subpoenas against the White House.

“I will commit to providing as much information as I can, consistent with the regulations,” Barr had told Blumenthal when asked if he would ensure that Mueller’s full report was publicly released.

Mueller’s team is still leading several prosecutions, including against longtime Trump adviser Roger Stone on charges of witness tampering and lying to Congress, and against former national security adviser Michael Flynn, who awaits sentencing on charges he lied to FBI agents during the Russia probe. Flynn is cooperating as part of a separate Foreign Agents Registration Act case regarding lobbying work in Turkey as part of his plea deal.

The flurry of activity comes shortly after Iowa Republican Sen. Chuck Grassley — who until recently was chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee — said he expected Mueller’s final Russia report “within a month.” Grassley later walked back those comments, saying they were based on unconfirmed news reports and rumors.

The top Republicans on the House and Senate Judiciary Committees, meanwhile, are calling for former FBI Acting Director Andrew McCabe and Rosenstein to testify before their respective panels, following McCabe’s explosive claims in an interview last week that senior Justice Department officials had considered removing President Trump using the 25th Amendment.

Raise your hand if you are tired of the whole Russian Collusion Fairy Tale Circus.

I know that I sure as heck am.

As I have documented over the last two years, the whole charade has been nothing but a Democrat Lynch Mob, formed to somehow, SOMEWAY remove President Donald J. Trump from office.

There never should have been a Special Counsel seated in the first place, unless it was for the purpose of investigating the cover-up by the DOJ and FBI of Hillary Clinton’s E-mailgate, the Uranium One Scandal, and the pay for play dealings of the Clinton Foundation while Hillary was Secretary of State.

The more that Mueller and his “Investigate Team”, consisting of 17 Democratic Party Donors, insisted that they were non-biased, the more information came forth that they were holdovers from the Clinton Administration, working as Deep State Operatives to do unto Trump as Brutus did unto Caesar.

They have proven themselves to be nothing but Trump Haters with no actual evidence of any kind that President Trump “colluded” with the Russians.

Several members of Mueller’s Team actually worked for the same Law Firm, WilmerHale, a huge Donor to the Democratic Party.

Anyone who has ever worked for the Law Firm of WilmerHale has donated to the Democratic Party…including Special Counsel Robert Mueller!

The whole Trump/Russia Collusion Fairy Tale has been nothing but an act of vengeance perpetrated by the Democratic Party, their minions in Congress, and their Deep State Operatives in the DOJ and FBI placed in motion to undo the results of the 2016 Presidential Election.

Because, Lord knows, the Far left Democratic Party can’t have a Republican President actually succeed in fulfilling his Campaign Promises.

That would mean that the Professional Politicians on Capitol Hill would actually have to work with President Trump on behalf of Americans, instead of themselves, to help make American Great Again.

And. Lord knows…we can’t have that. That would be too much like “right” (as we say in Dixie).

What a bunch of self-righteous hypocrites.

I hope that Mueller submits his findings to AG Barr next week and just quietly slips out the back door along with the rest of his lynch mob.

They have spent too much of OUR money, accomplishing nothing but supplying the purveyors of Fake News with fodder for wish-casting and pontificating by political pundits who, for two years, have been pulling their off-base predictions and opinions out of a very dark and lonely place.

It’s time to end the Dog and Pony Show.

Send in the clowns!

Oh, wait.

Pelosi and the House Democrats are already here.

Former Head of Trump’s Legal Team Says Mueller Will Not File a Report…No Collusion

February 13, 2019

new-congress-600-li

ABC News reports that

The veteran criminal defense attorney who headed President Donald Trump’s legal team during a crucial stretch of the special counsel investigation believes the entire affair will end in silence from special counsel Robert Mueller, and called the massive two-year probe into Russian interference in the 2016 campaign “a terrible waste of time.”

“I don’t think there’ll be a report,” John Dowd told ABC News in a wide-ranging interview for the premiere episode of “The Investigation,” a new podcast focused on the probe led by special counsel Robert Mueller. “I will be shocked if anything regarding the president is made public, other than ‘We’re done.’”

Dowd, 77, left his role as Trump’s lead attorney last March over differing views about how cooperative to be with prosecutors. But after spending nearly a year guiding the president’s legal strategy, he forged a close relationship with Trump and continues to speak with him about the Russia probe.

In one of his most in-depth interviews since departing Trump’s legal team, he offered a view of the probe very much in line with that of the president -– namely, that it lacks merit.

“I know exactly what [Mueller] has,” Dowd said. “I know exactly what every witness said, what every document said. I know exactly what he asked. And I know what the conclusion or the result is,” he said, describing the sweeping efforts by Trump’s legal team to assess the case by speaking to dozens of witnesses. Based on that knowledge, Dowd said, “there’s no basis. There’s no exposure. It’s been a terrible waste of time.”

Dowd’s overall view of the investigation — he called it “one of the greatest frauds this country’s ever seen” — echoes Trump’s claim that it is a hoax or a witch hunt.

Meanwhile, up on Capitol Hill,

After two years and 200 interviews, the Senate Intelligence Committee is approaching the end of its investigation into the 2016 election, having uncovered no direct evidence of a conspiracy between the Trump campaign and Russia, according to both Democrats and Republicans on the committee.

But investigators disagree along party lines when it comes to the implications of a pattern of contacts they have documented between Trump associates and Russians — contacts that occurred before, during and after Russian intelligence operatives were seeking to help Donald Trump by leaking hacked Democratic emails and attacking his opponent, Hillary Clinton, on social media.

“If we write a report based upon the facts that we have, then we don’t have anything that would suggest there was collusion by the Trump campaign and Russia,” said Sen. Richard Burr, R-N.C., the chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee, in an interview with CBS News last week.

Burr was careful to note that more facts may yet be uncovered, but he also made clear that the investigation was nearing an end.

“We know we’re getting to the bottom of the barrel because there’re not new questions that we’re searching for answers to,” Burr said.

On Tuesday, Burr doubled down, telling NBC News, “There is no factual evidence of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia.”

Back in April of last year, the House Investigative Committee also found no evidence of collusion with the Russians by President Trump after a year-long investigation.

However, now that the Democrats are in control of the House of Representatives, “Little Adam Schitt…err…Schipp and his “fellow travelers” have made investigating the Russian Collusion Fairy Tale their number one priority. However, they plan on not just investigating Russian Collusion, they plan on investigating the president’s personal finances, his tax returns, and probably his whole family if they get their way.

In my opinion, this makes the Democrats in the House of Representatives no better than a bunch of Internet Trolls.

They are not up on Capitol Hill serving their constituencies. They are serving themselves, attempting to abate the all-consuming hatred they hold for the 45th President of the United States of America.

President Trump fairly and squarely beat their Presidential Candidate, Hillary Clinton by finishing the night of November 8, 2016 with more Electoral Votes than she had, as per the requirements of our Constitution for determining the outcome of a Presidential Election.

Even though both bodies of Congress have completed their investigations and found diddly-squat and the Special Counsel’s Russia Probe has not found any evidence of collusion on the part of President Trump with the Russians, that is simply not good enough for these self-appointed Guardians of Truth and Righteousness, these Modern Day Pharisees.

Back during the meeting held on January 4 about the Government Shutdown, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi told the President,

“We’re not going to impeach you.”

Uh huh.

Okay, then why hold all of these superfluous investigations?

Is the purpose simply to block Trump from succeeding in fulfilling the Campaign Promises he made to the American people?

That could be done through the normal delay tactics which have been used for years by both bodies of Congress.

No, this is something more. perhaps San Fran Nan was unaware that she was not speaking for the House Democrats.

Or, perhaps she was just plain lying to the President in order to get him to end the partial shutdown, which would make the House Democrats appear to have had the upper hand.

Whichever way, the House Democrats have come off as being monumentally ineffective, as President Trump currently has a “yuge” 52% approval rating.

Perhaps the House Democrats should cancel their investigative vendetta against the President and actually attempt to do the job that they were sent up to Capital Hill to do: serve their constituencies.

Naw…they wouldn’t do that.

As we say in Dixie,

“That would be too much like right.”

Set Up for a Witch Hunt: Mueller Deputy Weissmann Briefed on Anti-Trump Dossier in 2016

February 7, 2019

weismann-ohr-01-1600x832-e1535716160650

“Oh, what a tangled web we weave…when first we practice to deceive.”                 – Sir Walter Scott

FoxNews.com reports that

Newly confirmed congressional testimony reveals that Andrew Weissmann, now a top deputy in Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation, was briefed in August 2016 on the opposition research behind the anti-Trump dossier – underscoring how early and widely the Democrat-funded research was shared among senior FBI and Justice Department officials. 
 
DOJ official Bruce Ohr was asked about such briefings during a closed-door interview with House lawmakers in August 2018. In the interview, details of which have only recently emerged, Fox News has learned that Ohr revealed he met with Weissmann and other DOJ officials shortly after a July 30, 2016 breakfast meeting with former British spy and dossier author Christopher Steele, in the run-up to the presidential election. Ohr told congressional investigators that his contact with Steele included “specific information related to the Russian Government’s attempt to interfere in the Presidential election,” as well as specific allegations “related to members of the Trump campaign and allegations of colluding with Russia.”

Question: “You’ve identified at the Department of Justice folks as early as August of 2016 or folks at the Department of Justice and FBI being aware of your involvement. At the Department of Justice, Mr. [Bruce] Swartz, Mr. [Andrew] Weissmann, and the third name, I didn’t get, Zainab [Ahmad]?”

Ohr: “Ahmad, Ms. Ahmad.”

Ohr was then asked about meeting with then-FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, as well as lawyer Lisa Page and agent Peter Strzok, all three of whom have since left the bureau.

Question: “Again, so the record is clear with respect to what the Department of Justice and the FBI knew about your involvement, those are the folks that were aware as of August 2016 that you had an involvement with Christopher Steele?”

Ohr: “Those are the people that I knew that I had told.”

Fox News previously reported Ohr told House investigators as part of the Republican-led probe that shortly after the July 30, 2016 meeting, his “first move” was to reach out to senior FBI officials McCabe and Page. He then shared the information with other DOJ officials including Weissmann, he said.

Question: “The information that Mr. Steele relayed to you in 2016, did you share this information with Federal law enforcement officials?” 

Ohr: “Yes, I did.” 

It’s not clear from the transcript exactly what information was shared and the timing. In his transcribed interview, Ohr seemed careful not to rule out the likelihood the Russia information went further. As for the substance, Ohr said Steele had provided him with information related to Russia’s attempts to interfere in the U.S. presidential election.

Weissmann is now a lead prosecutor on Mueller’s team handling the case of former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort. At the time in 2016, he was chief of the DOJ Criminal Division’s Fraud Section.

Let’s find out a little bit more about Mr. Weissman, shall we?

Per Heavy.com,

1. Weissmann Served as the FBI’s General Counsel Under Robert Mueller – Before his tenure at the FBI, Weissmann was a partner at Jenner & Block in New York for five years.

2. Weissmann Led the Enron Task Force but Not Without Controversy – Time after time, courts have reversed Weissmann’s most touted ‘victories’ for his tactics. This is hardly the stuff of a hero in the law. Weissmann, as deputy and later director of the Enron Task Force, destroyed the venerable accounting firm of Arthur Andersen LLP and its 85,000 jobs worldwide — only to be reversed several years later by a unanimous Supreme Court.

3. Weissmann Donated Money to President Barack Obama – Weissmann is a Barack Obama and Democratic campaign donor, according to federal records. “Weissmann, who led the Enron investigation, previously gave $2,300 to Obama’s first presidential campaign in 2008 and $2,000 to the Democratic National Committee in 2006, the same year Democrats won control of Congress.

4. Weissmann Attended Princeton & Columbia Universities & Prosecuted Mafia Crime Families – According to the DOJ press release, Weissmann “began his career with the Department of Justice in 1991 at the U.S. Attorney’s Office in the Eastern District of New York, where he served in various leadership positions, including as chief of the Criminal Division. According to Mother Jones, one of the people Weissmann prosecuted had ties to Trump. “As a prosecutor in the Eastern District, Weissmann signed a 1998 cooperation agreement between the US government and Felix Sater, a violent felon and securities trader who had pleaded guilty to financial crimes. Sater went on to become a confidential informant for the FBI and a Trump business partner,” the magazine noted.

5. Some Conservatives Have Noted That Weissmann Was in a Position of Power During the Clinton Uranium Controversy – Some conservatives contend that Mueller has a conflict of interest because they argue the FBI, under his stewardship, should have more thoroughly investigated Bill and Hillary Clinton over a uranium deal known as Uranium One. National Review notes that Andrew Weissmann ran Obama DOJ’s Fraud Section during this time frame.

The more information that is being revealed, the larger the spider’s web of Deep State Corruption within the DOJ, the FBI, and the Obama Administration itself becomes.

And now, “Little Adam Schitt”…err Schiff is beginning a new “Investigate Probe” in the house, desperate to find something, ANYTHING, with which to call for the impeachment of President Trump with.

I am certain that after the President’s magnificent SOTU Address on Tuesday night, the House Democrats were burning up each other’s cellphones, trying to figure out what to do now, especially after they saw the poll numbers which showed that Americans really, really liked what Trump told the nation on that historic night.

What we are watching unfold as involves what may be the final months of the Mueller Investigation and the beginning of Schitt…err…Schiff’s “investigation”, are the acts of the players in a Shakespearean Tragedy which is backfiring on the characters who believed that they would be last ones left standing.

As President Trump himself said yesterday about “Little Adam Schitt…err…Schiff,

“He’s just a political hack that’s trying to build a name for himself.”

This Shakespearean Tragedy which began during the Obama Administration will have  the curtain will fall on it during the Trump Administration.

However, unlike most “Tragedies”, this one will have a happy ending, with the hero still standing and those who have plotted against him defeated.

FBI Opened Secret Investigation of Trump After Comey’s Firing Claiming It Was Because of “Russian Collusion”…Yeah, Right

January 12, 2019

untitled (237)

For those of you out there who have doubted the existence of “Deep State Operatives” within the Department of Justice and the Federal Bureau of Investigation…

The New York Times reports that

In the days after President Trump fired James B. Comey as F.B.I. director, law enforcement officials became so concerned by the president’s behavior that they began investigating whether he had been working on behalf of Russia against American interests, according to former law enforcement officials and others familiar with the investigation.

The inquiry carried explosive implications. Counterintelligence investigators had to consider whether the president’s own actions constituted a possible threat to national security. Agents also sought to determine whether Mr. Trump was knowingly working for Russia or had unwittingly fallen under Moscow’s influence.

The investigation the F.B.I. opened into Mr. Trump also had a criminal aspect, which has long been publicly known: whether his firing of Mr. Comey constituted obstruction of justice.

Agents and senior F.B.I. officials had grown suspicious of Mr. Trump’s ties to Russia during the 2016 campaign but held off on opening an investigation into him, the people said, in part because they were uncertain how to proceed with an inquiry of such sensitivity and magnitude. But the president’s activities before and after Mr. Comey’s firing in May 2017, particularly two instances in which Mr. Trump tied the Comey dismissal to the Russia investigation, helped prompt the counterintelligence aspect of the inquiry, the people said.

The special counsel, Robert S. Mueller III, took over the inquiry into Mr. Trump when he was appointed, days after F.B.I. officials opened it. That inquiry is part of Mr. Mueller’s broader examination of how Russian operatives interfered in the 2016 election and whether any Trump associates conspired with them. It is unclear whether Mr. Mueller is still pursuing the counterintelligence matter, and some former law enforcement officials outside the investigation have questioned whether agents overstepped in opening it.

The criminal and counterintelligence elements were coupled together into one investigation, former law enforcement officials said in interviews in recent weeks, because if Mr. Trump had ousted the head of the F.B.I. to impede or even end the Russia investigation, that was both a possible crime and a national security concern. The F.B.I.’s counterintelligence division handles national security matters.

If the president had fired Mr. Comey to stop the Russia investigation, the action would have been a national security issue because it naturally would have hurt the bureau’s effort to learn how Moscow interfered in the 2016 election and whether any Americans were involved, according to James A. Baker, who served as F.B.I. general counsel until late 2017. He privately testified in October before House investigators who were examining the F.B.I.’s handling of the full Russia inquiry.

Following President Trump’s firing of James B. Comey as F.B.I. director, the bureau grew increasingly concerned about whether the president’s actions constituted anti-American activity. “Not only would it be an issue of obstructing an investigation, but the obstruction itself would hurt our ability to figure out what the Russians had done, and that is what would be the threat to national security,” Mr. Baker said in his testimony, portions of which were read to The New York Times. Mr. Baker did not explicitly acknowledge the existence of the investigation of Mr. Trump to congressional investigators.

No evidence has emerged publicly that Mr. Trump was secretly in contact with or took direction from Russian government officials. An F.B.I. spokeswoman and a spokesman for the special counsel’s office both declined to comment.

Rudolph W. Giuliani, a lawyer for the president, sought to play down the significance of the investigation. “The fact that it goes back a year and a half and nothing came of it that showed a breach of national security means they found nothing,” Mr. Giuliani said on Friday, though he acknowledged that he had no insight into the inquiry.

The cloud of the Russia investigation has hung over Mr. Trump since even before he took office, though he has long vigorously denied any illicit connection to Moscow. The obstruction inquiry, revealed by The Washington Post a few weeks after Mr. Mueller was appointed, represented a direct threat that he was unable to simply brush off as an overzealous examination of a handful of advisers. But few details have been made public about the counterintelligence aspect of the investigation.

The decision to investigate Mr. Trump himself was an aggressive move by F.B.I. officials who were confronting the chaotic aftermath of the firing of Mr. Comey and enduring the president’s verbal assaults on the Russia investigation as a “witch hunt.”

If all of this is indeed true, there could be no greater evidence of the existence of covert Deep State Operatives within the DOJ and the FBI.

Being upset over the firing of a bureaucratic prima donna like James Comey is no reason to launch a covert investigation against a sitting President when no proof of the allegations of “Russian Colluding” existed. It fact, they still do not exist to this very day.

If no evidence of Russian Collusion existed at the time, how could President Trumps firing of James Comey , something well within his rights as the President of the United States of America, be a “national security concern”?

The spider’s web of political intrigue, covert operations to bring down a sitting president, and the Machiavellian machinations behind it all certainly gets more and more convoluted and revolting, doesn’t it, gentle readers?

In a part of the above article which I did not post, the writers said that Christopher Steele “had compiled memos in mid-2016 containing unsubstantiated claims that Russian officials tried to obtain influence over Mr. Trump by preparing to blackmail and bribe him.”

They also quoted Lisa Page, Former FBI Bureau Lawyer and love of disgraced Former FBI Agent Peter Strok, who told House of Representative Investigators,

“In the Russian Federation and in President Putin himself, you have an individual whose aim is to disrupt the Western alliance and whose aim is to make Western democracy more fractious in order to weaken our ability, America’s ability and the West’s ability to spread our democratic ideals. That’s the goal, to make us less of a moral authority to spread democratic values.”

That trollop and the rest of those involved in this frame up and resulting Witch Hunt, wouldn’t know “Democratic Values” if they French-kissed them.

If the long and winding trail which includes the Carter Page FISA Memo on up to this secret investigation and the appointment of Special Counsel Robert Mueller is followed back long enough and strongly enough, I firmly believe that it will lead back to Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and the Former President of the United States of America, Barack Hussein Obama (mm mmm mmmm).

The whole Deep State Operation put into motion by government agents and bureaucrats loyal to Obama and Clinton resembles a spider’s web in its intricacy, with, like a spider’s, a single signaling line leading back to the white House and President Barack Hussein Obama, who was attempting to clear a pathway to the Presidency for the Black Widow herself, the Queen of Mean, Hillary Clinton.

And, the Professional Bureaucrats in the Hierarchy of the Department of Justice and the FBI who were loyal to her and President Barack Hussein Obama were more than willing to help.

President Ronald Reagan used to say that the nine words that you never want to hear were

I’m from the Government and I’m here to help.

Now, don’t get me wrong. the rank and file of the FBI is composed of many stellar, heroic agents, who love this country and work sacrificially every day, serving with honor.

The hierarchy is another matter entirely, as has been proven repeatedly since this Deep State “Silent Coup” Attempt was first discovered.

Being political appointees holding political opinions, while carrying political obligations to a certain political party, never bodes well in a position of legal authority.

Add into that mix an extra-marital affair between these bureaucrats and, to paraphrase, “the affairs of mice and men (and agents) will indeed go awry”.

The Professional Bureaucrats in the DOJ and the FBI knew from the get-go if the FISA Documents were ever made public, the following backlash by the American public would blow their clandestine operation against the candidacy and the presidency of Donald J. Trump wide open and put an end to the sham of an investigation into Trump’s “Russian Collusion” that should have never happened.

Since the kinky days of J. Edgar Hoover, the hierarchy of the FBI have run clandestine investigations of public figures, both political and cultural leaders.

J. Edgar did it to hold onto his office and to have political leverage against his enemies, as he had skeletons in his own closet…and dresses, too.

But, I digress.

In this case however, the hierarchy of the FBI did it to circumvent the will of the American People and to install Hillary Clinton as the 45th President, thus protecting the status quo in the Halls of Power in Washington, DC.

When that didn’t happen, they determined to bring President Trump down, by any means necessary, including creating a fake story of Russian Collusion.

Thanks to the two agents who decided to do the Extramarital Mattress Mambo and text each other thousands of times, whom I mentioned earlier in this post, written evidence was leaked out which piqued the interest of average Americans as to what in the world was going on in the Halls of Power during the Obama Administration.

It appeared to be something out of a Tom Clancy Novel.

However, even Tom Clancy could not have written a plot by the Deep State to take out an opposing Political Party’s Presidential Candidate and then a sitting president in such a convoluted manner as America has witnessed.

My late Former Father-in-law was a retired Police Lieutenant, who had worked with the FBI on several high-profile cases.

To say that he wasn’t a fan would be an understatement.

According to him, the letters FBI stood for “F—ing Bunch of Idiots”.

In the case of the FBI Hierarchy’s Deep State Operatives, and their blatant clandestine servitude to the Former Administration and members of the Democratic Party and their ongoing mission to install a Democrat Dynasty in the White House by circumventing not only the will of the American People but the Constitution, as well, darned if he wasn’t right.

Giuliani – Mueller was “Insurance Policy” Referred to in Strzok’s Text to Get Trump Out of Office

December 31, 2018

 

 

468166Yesterday morning, “America’s Mayor” and personal attorney for President Donald J. Trump, Rudy Giuliani, was a guest on “Fox and Friends” on the Fox News Channel.

During his visit he made some very interesting remarks concerning the ongoing “Russia Probe” and Special Counsel Robert Mueller.

…Giuliani openly cast doubt on Mueller’s official explanation for why the phones belonging to two of his former top deputies were completely wiped just days after they were fired for their anti-Trump bias. Giuliani also reiterated his previous assertions that Trump would not sit down for a one-on-one interview with Mueller, citing what he called the “unethical or grossly negligent behavior” of special counsel prosecutors.

In a comprehensive report issued earlier this month, the Department of Justice’s internal watchdog blamed a technical glitch for a swath of missing text messages between anti-Trump ex-FBI officials Peter Strzok and Lisa Page — and revealed that government phones issued by Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s office to Strzok and Page had been wiped completely clean after Strzok was fired from the Russia probe.

Strzok — who in August 2016 texted Page about an “insurance policy” in the event Trump won the election and who secretly discussed a “media leak strategy” concerning the Russia probe — was removed from Mueller’s team in late July 2017 after the FBI discovered he had been sending anti-Trump text messages. He sent many of those messages to Page, with whom he was engaged in an extramarital affair.

“All those texts from Strzok and Page — deleted?” Giulani asked. “After they find out that Strzok is texting that he hates Trump, that he’s going to get him and stop him — and that if he can’t stop him, he has an ‘insurance policy’ to get him out of office. I believe Mueller is the insurance policy to get him out of office. I’m not just saying that — Strzok was his first investigator.”

The DOJ’s Inspector General (IG) said that, with help from the Department of Defense, it was able to uncover thousands of missing text messages written by Strzok and Page and sent using their FBI-issued Samsung phones from December 15, 2016, through May 17, 2017, “as well as hundreds of other text messages outside the gap time period that had not been produced by the FBI due to technical problems with its text message collection tool.”

But when the IG went looking for the iPhones separately issued to Strzok and Page by the Mueller team, investigators were told that “[Strzok’s] iPhone had been reset to factory settings and was reconfigured for the new user to whom the device was issued.”

The records officer at the special counsel told the IG that “as part of the office’s records retention procedure, the officer reviewed Strzok’s DOJ issued iPhone” on September 6, 2017, and “determined it contained no substantive text messages” before it was wiped completely — just weeks after Strzok was fired from Mueller’s team for anti-Trump bias and sending anti-Trump text messages.

“The person who determined what to eliminate was Mueller’s records officer, who says there was nothing of interest there,” Giulani said. “It’s hard to believe Strzok and Page suddenly decided, ‘We’re not going to text anymore about Donald Trump.’ They seemed to be obsessively and compulsively texting about him. I don’t know what kind of lovers they were if they were texting about that all the time. It’s ridiculous.”

Still, while he questioned why Strzok and Page’s Mueller-issued phones were wiped, Giuliani did not dispute the FBI’s contention that a technical glitch had affected Strzok and Page’s separate FBI-issued Samsung phones.

“Texts only last… for a little while… not like emails,” Giuliani said. “I do this work, cybersecurity work. Texts are hard to get. That’s legitimate.”

Giuliani added that it was likely that Strzok, in fact, had been using his Mueller-issued phone to discuss topics like the FBI’s tactics in the investigation of former Trump National Security Adviser Michael Flynn. Explosive court documents released earlier this month revealed that, in January 2017, then-FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe pushed Flynn not to have an attorney present during the questioning that ultimately led to his guilty plea on a single charge of lying to federal authorities.

“Just maybe, it would be very embarrassing if he was saying the same things while working for the holier-than-thou special counsel — ‘we’re framing Flynn, we’re not gonna tell him he has the right to counsel,'” Giuliani said.

Asked whether he expects Mueller’s final investigative report to be issued in February, Giulani suggested he isn’t holding his breath.

In addition to his work on the Mueller probe, Strzok was the lead agent on the Clinton email case known inside the bureau by the code name “Mid Year Exam” or MYE.

And, of course, Mueller was the “mule” for Hillary Clinton’s deal, made while she was Secretary of State, in which she sold one-fifth of America’s Uranium Supply to the Russians, an under-reported scandal known as “Uranium One”.

But, I digress.

Rudy, as per usual, makes a lot of sense. Mueller could very well have been the “insurance policy” mentioned by Strzok.

There are too many “spider webs” in this while “Deep State Conspiracy” which all see to lead in one direction: directly back to Obama, Hillary, and the DOJ and FBI Hierarchy.

The investigation by Special Counsel Robert Mueller and his 17 Angry Democrats has mushroomed into probing every aspect of the past of President Trump, his family, and his friends.

This never was about some sort of conspiracy to alter the results of the 2016 Presidential Election. This remains about completely destroying President Trump, his loved ones, and anyone who has ever known him or worked for him.

Just as they did over the nightmarish 8 long years of the Obama Administration and as they attempted to do to the Trump Travel Ban, the Democrats are on a mission to use the courts to overturn the will of the American People.

If the Democrats and the Never-Trumpers in the Washington Swamp, who are pulling the strings of Special Counsel Robert Mueller, believe that we average Americans living between the coasts cannot recognize a Political Railroading of a sitting President when it is playing out right before our very eyes, they are horribly mistaken.

And, they learned absolutely nothing on the night of November 8, 2016.

DOJ/FBI Miss Grassley Deadline for Info on Raid on Uranium One Whistleblower…Hmmm

December 14, 2018

untitled-188

So, there is no such thing as the “Deep State”, huh?

FoxNews.com reports that

The Justice Department and FBI have missed a Wednesday deadline to provide information about the government’s mysterious raid on a former FBI contractor-turned-whistleblower’s home last month.

Sixteen FBI agents on Nov. 19 raided the home of Dennis Nathan Cain, who reportedly gave the Justice Department’s Inspector General (IG) documents related to the Uranium One controversy and potential wrongdoing by former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

The documents in question allegedly showed that federal officials failed to investigate possible criminal activity related to Clinton, the Clinton Foundation and Rosatom, a Russian nuclear company. Its subsidiary purchased Canadian mining company Uranium One in 2013.

Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, whose panel has oversight of the Justice Department, penned a letter to FBI Director Christopher Wray and Justice Department IG General Michael Horowitz, requesting information on the justification for the raid. Grassley gave Wray and Horowitz until Dec. 12 to respond to his request.

That deadline has come and gone, and neither the FBI nor DOJ has produced any documents or response.

“We have not yet received answers to the chairman’s questions on this matter,” a Judiciary Commitee spokesperson told Fox News late Thursday.

The FBI consistently has refused Fox News’ request for comment on the whistleblower raid and the Judiciary Committee’s requests. On Thursday, an FBI spokesperson told Fox News the agency would respond only to inquiries from the entity that requested the documents — in this case, the Judiciary Committee.

Questioning whether “we now live in a secret police state,” Cain took his frustration about the situation to Twitter earlier this week.

“So I blow the whistle on the FBI, get raided by the same FBI, and now they want to keep the FBI’s reasons secret? Do we now live in a secret police state? Feels a little like 1984,” Cain tweeted late Monday. The tweet eventually was deleted.

The Daily Caller requested that a court unseal the relevant search warrant materials, but the U.S. Attorney for the District of Maryland, in a court filing, said: “the request should be denied.”

All along, I have said that the Uranium One Scandal is THE Story.

Back on October 23, 2017, Breitbart.com presented the following “Fact Sheet” about the scandal…

  1. Peter Schweizer Broke the Uranium One Scandal
    Government Accountability Institute (GAI) President and Breitbart News Senior Editor-at-Large Peter Schweizer broke the Uranium One scandal in his book Clinton Cash: The Untold Story of How and Why Foreign Governments and Businesses Helped Make Bill and Hillary Rich. In the book, he reported that Clinton’s State Department, along with other federal agencies, approved the transfer of 20 percent of all U.S. uranium to Russia and that nine foreign investors in the deal gave $145 million to Hillary and Bill Clinton’s personal charity, the Clinton Foundation.
  2. The New York Times Confirmed the Scandal in 2015
    The New York Times confirmed Schweizer’s Uranium One revelations in a 4,000-word front-page story by a Pulitzer Prize-winning investigative reporter. It detailed how the Russian energy giant Rosatom had taken over the Canadian firm with three separate purchases between 2009 and 2013, largely coinciding with Hillary Clinton’s time as secretary of state.
  3. The FBI Uncovered Evidence that Russian Money Was Funneled to the Clinton Foundation
    The Hill reported last week that ahead of the deal, the FBI had uncovered “substantial evidence that Russian nuclear industry officials were engaged in bribery, kickbacks, extortion and money laundering” to expand Russia’s nuclear footprint in the U.S. as early as 2009. The agency also found that Russian nuclear officials had routed millions of dollars to the U.S. to benefit the Clinton Foundation. The Justice Department would sit on the evidence for four years before looking to prosecute, by which time the deal had been approved.
  4. Congress Is Now Investigating
    The Senate Judiciary Committee has launched a probe into the scandal and has sent requests for more information to 10 federal agencies involved in the approval of the partial sale of Uranium One, asking what they knew about the FBI investigation and when.
  5. Bill Clinton Was Paid $500,000 for a Speech in Moscow
    Bill Clinton bagged a $500,000 speech in Moscow paid for by a Kremlin-backed bank shortly after Russia announced its intention to take a majority stake in the company. According to the Times, Clinton traveled to Moscow in June 2010, the same month Rosatom struck its deal for its majority stake in Uranium One.
  6. The Clinton Foundation Took Big Bucks from Uranium Investors
    According to theTimes, The Clinton Foundation received $2.35 million in donations from Ian Telfer, a mining investor who was also the chairman of Uranium One when Rosatom acquired it. It also received $31.3 million and a pledge for $100 million more from Frank Giustra, the Canadian mining financier whose company merged with Uranium One.
  7. Senate Republicans Want an FBI Gag Order Lifted Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-IA) has called for the Justice Department to lift the gag order on the FBI’s whistleblower, indicating that he may have more explosive revelations related to the case and on what the Clintons and the Obama administration knew about the case and when they knew it.

I believe that the Trump Russian Collusion Fairy tale was actually a False Flag Operation designed by the Democratic Party Hierarchy, their Propaganda Arm, the Main Street Media, and their operatives on Capitol Hill and within the Trump Administration itself, to keep the nation’s attention diverted to the Trump/Russia Lie, when in reality the Uranium One Treasonous Operation by Hillary Clinton WAS AND REMAINS THE STORY.

Special Counsel Robert Mueller was appointed FBI Director by George W. Bush, whom he served under for 10 years.

When Barack Hussein Obama became President, Mueller served under him for 2 more years. During that time, he acted as a “mule” for Secretary of State Clinton, carrying a sample of the before-mentioned seized uranium BACK to Vladimir Putin via the Russian Embassy.

Mueller’s past, plus the fact that he recruited lawyers who are Democratic Donors to fill out his “Investigative Staff” led me and others to throw up a red flag about this guy from the get-go, knowing that he was another Establishment Political Weasel like James Comey, who followed Mueller as Director of the FBI.

Trump’s “Russiagate” is an invention of the Democratic Party in more ways than one.

Not only was Hillary Clinton guilty of nefarious dealings with the Russians when she was Obama’s Secretary of State, she and her Campaign Staff attempted to work with the Russians in an attempt to sabotage the campaign of Donald J. Trump in order to overcome her own shortcomings and win the Presidency. When that didn’t happen, she, along with the Democrat Elite, made up the version of “Russiagate” which the MSM and Liberal Political Activists (but, I repeat myself) have been bombarding skeptical Americans with for the first year of the presidency of Donald J. Trump.

Mueller and the former members of Obama’s Administration, including Hillary Clinton, who have been so vocal about the Trump-Russia Collusion Fairy Tale have known the truth all along…that they were the only ones guilty of “colluding with the Russians”.

There are several players involved in the Obama Administration who knew about Uranium One and they ALL need to be heard from, including Obama, Hillary, and Holder.

As I have written before, this whole massive misdirection play which I call the Trump-Russian Collusion Fairy Tale is going to go down as one of the biggest “nothingburgers” in American History.

And, the Obama Administration will be known as the most corrupt Administration in American History, with Hillary Clinton being the most corrupt Secretary of State.

Obama will leave a legacy, alright. A legacy of corruption.

As Investigations into Tony Podesta and Roger Craig Heat Up…Is the Russia Probe About to Backfire on the Dems?

December 6, 2018

untitled (261)

I believe that as more details are found out about the nefarious dealings with Foreign Powers by those working with both the Obama and Clinton Administrations, Americans will figure out for themselves that the Trump Russian Collusion Fairy tale was actually a False Flag Operation designed by the Democratic Party Hierarchy, their Propaganda Arm, the Main Street Media, and their operatives on Capitol Hill and within the Trump Administration itself, to keep the nation’s attention diverted to the Trump/Russia Lie, when in reality the Uranium One Treasonous Operation by Hillary Clinton WAS AND REMAINS THE STORY.

FoxNews.com reports that

An investigation referred to Justice Department prosecutors by Special Counsel Robert Mueller earlier this year, and looking into possible criminal activity by Clinton-linked Washington insider Tony Podesta and former Obama White House Counsel Greg Craig, is heating up, according to a new report that underscores federal authorities’ newly heightened enforcement of laws governing foreign business relationships.

The inquiries center on Podesta, a Democratic lobbyist and co-founder of the onetime lobbying powerhouse known as The Podesta Group; Vin Weber, a former GOP congressman from Minnesota; and Craig, who also worked in the Clinton White House.

The probes had been quiet for months since Mueller referred them to authorities in Manhattan because they fell outside his mandate of determining whether the Trump campaign coordinated with Russia.

But in a flurry of new activity, Justice Department prosecutors in the last several weeks have begun interviewing witnesses and contacting lawyers to schedule additional questioning related to the Podesta Group and Mercury Public Affairs, people familiar with the inquiry anonymously  told The Associated Press.

The New York work underscores the broad effects of Mueller’s investigation, extending well beyond the central question of President Trump and whether or not there was Russian collusion. Mueller has made clear he will not turn away if he discovers alleged crimes outside the scope of his inquiry; instead, he refers them out in investigations that may linger on even after the special counsel’s work concludes. Other Justice Department referrals from Mueller have ended in guilty pleas, including the hush money payment case of Trump’s former lawyer Michael Cohen.

The investigation reflects how Mueller, in latching onto an obscure law, has shined a light on high-dollar lobbying practices that have helped foreign governments find powerful allies and advocates in Washington. It’s a practice that has spanned both parties and enriched countless former government officials, who have leveraged their connections to influence American politics.

Podesta is a longtime Democratic operative whose brother, John Podesta, ran Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign; Weber is a former Republican congressman from Minnesota. Neither man has been charged with any crimes. Their firms have defended the decisions by saying they relied on the advice of outside attorneys.

Mueller’s referral also involved Greg Craig, a former White House counsel for President Barack Obama. Craig supervised a report authored on behalf of the Ukrainian government, and Mueller’s team has said Manafort helped Ukraine hide that it paid more than $4 million for the work. CNN reported in September that prosecutors were weighing charges against Craig.

It’s unclear if the renewed interest will produce charges or if prosecutors are merely following up on Mueller’s referral.

I believe that this whole cockamamie Russian Probe is about to backfire of the Democrats.

Don’t believe me? Check this out…

Back of February 18, 2017, Forbes.com posted an article titled “No One Mentions That The Russian Trail Leads To Democratic Lobbyists” by Paul Roderick Gregory, which makes the keen observation that

Thanks to the Panama Papers, we know that the Podesta Group (founded by John Podesta’s brother, Tony) lobbied for Russia’s largest bank, Sberbank. “Sberbank is the Kremlin, they don’t do anything major without Putin’s go-ahead, and they don’t tell him ‘no’ either,” explained a retired senior U.S. intelligence official. According to a Reuters report, Tony Podesta was “among the high-profile lobbyists registered to represent organizations backing Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovich.” Among these was the European Center, which paid Podesta $900,000 for his lobbying. 

That’s not all: The busy Podesta Group also represented Uranium One, a uranium company acquired by the Russian government which received approval from Hillary Clinton’s State Department to mine for uranium in the U.S. and gave Russia twenty percent control of US uranium. The New York Times reported Uranium One’s chairman, Frank Giustra, made significant donations to the Clinton Foundation, and Bill Clinton was paid $500,000 for one speech from a Russian investment bank that has “links to the Kremlin that was promoting Uranium One stock.”  Notably, Frank Giustra, the Clinton Foundation’s largest and most controversial donor, does not appear anywhere in Clinton’s “non-private” emails. It is possible that the emails of such key donors were automatically scrubbed to protect the Clinton Foundation.

Let’s not leave out fugitive Ukrainian oligarch, Dymtro Fortrash. He is represented by Democratic heavyweight lawyer, Lanny Davis, who accused Trump of “inviting Putin to commit espionage”

That’s still not all: Rep. John Conyers (D., Mich.) read Kremlin propaganda into the Congressional Record, referring to Ukrainian militia as “repulsive Neo Nazis” in denying Ukrainian forces ManPad weapons. Conyers floor speech was surely a notable success of some Kremlin lobbyist.

Lobbying for Russia is a bi-partisan activity. Gazprombank GPB, a subsidiary of Russia’s third largest bank, Gazprombank, is represented by former Sen. John Breaux, (D., La.), and former Senate Majority Leader Trent Lott (R., Miss.), as main lobbyists on “banking laws and regulations, including applicable sanctions.” The Breaux-Lott client is currently in the Treasury Department list of Russian firms prohibited from debt financing with U.S. banks.

In his February 16 press conference, President Trump declared in response to the intensifying media drumbeat on his Russian connections: “I haven’t done anything for Russia.” K-Street lobbyists, on the other hand, have done a lot to help Russia. They greased the skids for a strategic deal (that required the Secretary of State’s approval) that multiplied the Kremlin’s command of world uranium supplies. They likely prevented the shipment of strategic weapons needed by Ukraine to repulse well-armed pro-Russian forces. A fugitive billionaire who robbed the Ukrainian people of billions is represented by one of the establishment’s most connected lawyers.

Gazprombank GPB hired Breux and Lott to gain repeal of sanctions. That’s perfectly fine in Washington; they are playing according established “swamp rules” in their tailored suits and fine D.C. restaurants. General Flynn lost his job when the subject of sanctions was mentioned by the Russian ambassador in their telephone conversation, but that’s the way the media and Washington play.

 As I always say,

The problem with pointing a finger at somebody is that you have three fingers pointing back at you.

All of the Liberal Political Pundits who have been all over Cable and Broadcast News and all of the self-proclaimed trollish little Liberal know-it-alls who have been all over Social Media, crowing about General Flynn and Paul Manafort, are soon going to have a rude awakening.

Democrat Politicians and their operatives have been wheeling and dealing with Putin and his henchmen for years. And, once the hearings concerning Hillary Clinton and Barack Hussein Obama’s Uranium One Scandal get started, even their seemingly well-planned distraction, known as the Trump-Russian Collusion Fairy Tale, won’t be about to stop the Sword of Damocles from ripping their political and professional futures to shreds.

Hopefully, the Dems are about to figure out that the old adage is true,

If you lay down with dogs, (even Siberian Huskies”) you get up with fleas.
