Opinion | Furious Judge Stops Mueller Prosecutor Mid-Trial And Torches Him In Front Of Entire Courtroom

Published

on

Paul Manafort’s trial has officially begun. The former campaign manager for President Trump is now being dragged through the legal system for crimes supposedly committed eight years ago and for which there was originally insufficient evidence to convict him on. Oh, and Rod Rosenstein was involved in the case back then as well. He actually exonerated Manafort at the time. The trial is heating up and I may be wrong on this, but it may not pan out the way Mueller has envisioned. Especially if you go by proceedings so far in court.

Manafort is being charged over bank fraud and tax evasion. Those are process crimes that the FBI used to take down Al Capone in his day because they couldn’t get him on anything else. I’m not a fan of Paul Manafort’s, but this is just wrong and should not be allowed. Mueller has strayed far outside of his mandate and this is just retaliation for Manafort not flipping on Trump. Nothing he has been charged with is connected to President Trump, his campaign or the specious charge of collusion with the Russians. Collusion won’t even come up during the trial. The left must be devastated over that, but never fear… Mueller will do his level best to burn Manafort at the stake for the crime of being associated with Trump.

Mueller tried everything with Manafort. He raided his home in the pre-dawn hours and finally got him on witness-tampering, which was pretty flimsy if you ask me. He then had Manafort put in solitary confinement. Manafort did not break. They tried similar techniques on Michael Flynn. I’m no fan of his either, but they bankrupted the guy when he would not flip on Trump. Then they got him to admit to something he didn’t do by threatening to imprison his son. These are mob tactics and I don’t get why they are being allowed here. They definitely are not working with Manafort who will not cut a plea deal. CBS News reporter Paula Reid tweeted, “JUST IN: No deal. Manafort attorney Kevin Downing tells me ‘No chance!’ his client will cooperate with Special Counsel in order to avoid trial today.”

I’m also beginning to sense that Mueller came up short on the judge who is overseeing the case. The judge was furious and torched Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s prosecutors after they tried to attack Manafort for living an “extravagant lifestyle.” Since when did it become an actual crime to be wealthy in this country and spend your money however you like as long as it’s legal? Manafort lived an “extravagant lifestyle” fueled by “secret income” that he earned from his lobbying in the Ukraine, said Uzo Asonye, a prosecutor who is working on the case with Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s team. Manafort became wealthy from the “cash spigot” that came from working for his “golden goose in Ukraine,” former President Viktor Yanukovych, Asonye said. That may be true, but again… prove how he broke the law.

The prosecutors against Manafort indicated in their opening statement that they planned to put his wealth on trial as a key element of their case, arguing he funded his lavish spending habits by breaking the law. That remains to be seen and ‘social justice’ arguments are not going to fly in this court under this particular judge. Judge T.S. Ellis rapped the prosecutors for the ‘wealth’ argument but good according to Associated Press reporter Erick Tucker, “Interesting moment occurred in government opening statement as prosecutor rattled off Manafort’s life of luxury. Judge interrupted: ‘It isn’t a crime to have a lot of money and be profligate in your spending,’” he tweeted. Good for that judge.

If Manafort has actually broken the law and they can tie it to Russian oligarchs, then prove it. Make your case, but knock off the ‘wealth’ drivel. I understand that the judge also has forbidden the use of the word ‘oligarch’ in this case. That made me laugh. Manafort’s team laid the blame on his partner who has already copped a plea in the case, Rick Gates. They always go for the weakest link and just because he confessed, doesn’t necessarily make him guilty either. We saw that with Flynn as I noted before. “He had his hand in the cookie jar,” Zehnle said of Gates. Exactly, what ‘cookie jar’ is that? You mean because he was being paid by Russians? Okay, but how was that illegal? I’m not saying it wasn’t as Zehnle is on Mannafort’s team, but facts rather than rhetoric would be nice in a court of law.

Zehnle argued in his opening statement that Manafort never intended to deceive the IRS or anyone else and noted how prosecutors barely mentioned Gates, who he said was the government’s “star witness,” even though Gates pleaded guilty to lying to the government. Gee, that was what they got Flynn on. Deja vu all over again. Manafort faces 18 charges, including filing false tax returns, failure to report foreign bank accounts and defrauding banks. Manafort has denied the charges. He faces a maximum sentence of 305 years in prison if convicted on all charges. As I said before, they didn’t have enough to convict him eight years ago, they may not have enough now. We’ll see. At least they haven’t gotten Manafort on gun possession or vagrancy yet like they did Capone. But they are sure going for tax evasion. This is a legalistic farce.

Judge Just Opened the FLOODGATES For Illegals To Sway Midterm Vote – Too Late Now!

Published

on

* By

It’s appalling that this judge is allowed to do this? None of this should be allowed. Amazing how desperate a political party will get. Lie, cheat and steal is the only way for them.

When are these people going to serve time for illegal voting?

From The Gateway Pundit:

A New Hampshire activist judge on Monday put a temporary injunction on a Republican-backed law requiring new voters to show proof of residency when they register.

The judge says requiring proof of residency would lengthen lines and make it harder for students, disabled voters and others to cast their votes.

“Where the law threatens to disenfranchise an individual’s right to vote, the only viable remedy is to enjoin its enforcement,” Judge Kenneth C. Brown wrote in his decision.

The judge also said the registration form is too complicated for people to understand.

Reuters reported:

The temporary injunction against the Republican-backed law comes two weeks before U.S. Congressional elections that will determine whether opposition Democrats or U.S. President Donald Trump’s Republicans retain full control of the federal government’s legislative branch.

The measure, which passed largely along party lines and went into effect last year, required those seeking to register within 30 days of an election to present documents proving that they live in the area where they intend to vote. Without such proof, they must agree to either send it in within 10 days or the state will seek to verify their domicile.
The law does not require proof of address when voting.

The legislation is the subject of a lawsuit filed by League of Women Voters of New Hampshire and other groups, who said it would disenfranchise numerous groups including students, the disabled and homeless voters. The measure will be put on hold while the merits of the case are decided.

New Hampshire Congresswoman Carol Shea-Porter, a Democrat, welcomed the ruling.

“This law undermines our state’s reputation for holding free and fair elections, and it hurts our democracy,” she said in a statement.

The New Hampshire Associate Attorney General said through a spox that the state is reviewing the court order, according to Reuters.

New Hampshire has a long history of voter fraud and everyone who lives there knows this to be true.

In February of 2017, Project Veritas undercover journalists caught election officials in Nashua, New Hampshire welcoming out of state voters with open arms.
N.H. Election worker: “If you want to vote today, you might want to tell them that you’re staying with a friend and you’re here indefinitely which sounds like it’s true.”

P.V. Journalist: “Ok, got you. It’s not 100% true. But I understand.”

N.H. Election worker: “Right, but you’re here indefinitely and your address is at your friends house and then you would be able to vote.”

The Washington Times reported last year that vote fraud may have tipped New Hampshire against Trump since it was such a tight race:

More than 6,500 people registered to vote in New Hampshire on Nov. 8 using out-of-state driver’s licenses, and since then the vast majority have neither obtained an in-state license nor registered a motor vehicle.

Many Americans Should Prepare For Arrest Before Midterms As Dems Make Way For Invaders

Published

This is nothing but an invasion and must be stopped now!

A man with dual-citizenship in Mexico and the United States was arrested as he took part in the migrant caravan. He helped organize one earlier this year, also.

If other American citizens are helping this caravan or future ones, they could also be arrested by Mexican authorities.

From Conservative Daily Post:

If it weren’t abundantly clear that the migrant caravan was really an organized invasion of the United States, the fact that an ‘immigrant activist’ who was involved in the last illegal incursion was arrested in Mexico for organizing the ‘movement’ should remove all doubt.

Stop The Facebook Purge of Triple Amputee War Hero’s Pages! He Gave 3 Limbs For our Rights And they Stole It All From Him! Help this Hero Take it To Congress –> Fight4FreeSpeech!

Irineo Mujica, who helped organize the last batch of invaders, was arrested Thursday in Ciudad Hidalgo, after the caravan illegally crossed into Mexico from Tecun Umam, Guatemala.

No one can deny that these invaders, mostly military age men, are criminal lawbreakers, but somehow, he’s being labeled a ‘humanitarian.’

Many people ask if it’s ‘humanitarian’ to march people across Central America, encourage them to break every country’s law, and watch as they are stirred into an ignorant frenzy, burning U.S. flags with swastikas on them?

Perhaps for liberals, that is the definition?

AZ Central slanted the fact that a man with dual citizenship was ‘roughly’ pulled into the van of Mexican authorities after plucked him from the migrant group.

Mujica was not involved in organizing the most recent caravan, claimed another instigator, Alex Mensing, a coordinator with Pueblo Sin Fronteras, the group that organized the previous invasion.

“He was not involved in organizing the beginnings of the caravan,” Mensing claimed, saying that Mujica was helping organize ‘humanitarian assistance.’

The instigators claim the group wanted to “welcome a large wave of migrants,” mostly from Honduras, preparing to cross over into Mexico.

Of course, the ‘crossing’ was completely illegal, but that is not mentioned.

“They were having a peaceful march,” Mensing said.

Mexican federal police and immigration officers “broke up the group and went straight for Irineo,” Mensing said.

The article stated, “Mujica was jailed and has been charged with obstructing authorities, according to information distributed to media outlets on WhatsApp, a messaging app.

Mujica was released midday Saturday, Mensing said, and must post a 10,000 peso bond, equivalent to about $520.

He also forfeited his documents, and was ordered not to leave Tapachula until his case is resolved, Mensing said.”

The president has condemned the illegal invasion, and warned he would shut down the Southern border if Mexico cannot stop the incursion.

President Trump has also threatened to withhold billions of dollars in U.S. aid to El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras, unless action is taken.

Mexico sent aircraft filled with officers to intercept the illegal invasion force, but with so many liberals helping them, most people agree that this group, being used as pawns by the political left, will reach the border.

It will be up to President Trump to stop them from pouring into the country and American voters to usher in a Congress that will support him.
