Mueller Devastated After Judge Forces Him To Expose Identity Of His 5 ‘Secret’ Witnesses

Published

on

Looks like Mueller is having a bad week which suits me just fine. It’s no secret that Mueller’s witch hunt against President Trump and his supporters is prejudicial in the extreme. Mueller has long ago superseded his mandate in this case. There has never been an ounce of Russian collusion proven in connection with President Trump or his administration. So, in the absence of finding a political holy grail that would take Trump down, Mueller has resorted to prosecuting process crimes against those connected to Trump early on in his run for the presidency, such as Carter Page, Michael Flynn and Paul Manafort.

Mueller was just dealt a devastating blow from a federal judge in his attempt to keep secret five people he granted immunity to in the case against former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort. We now know who they are thanks to Virginia Federal Judge T.S. Ellis, a Ronald Reagan appointee. Mueller claimed in a filing this last week that they haven’t been criminally charged and not naming them would avoid “undue harassment.” That’s a level of concern he has not applied to Trump and his people by any means. Mueller is trying to sidestep the law by not charging these people in the first place. It’s hardly transparent… he wants to take down Manafort behind the judicial curtain. Unfortunately, this judge scuttled that maneuver.

Judge T.S. Ellis also ordered Mueller’s office to provide a list of about 30 witnesses to Manafort’s lawyers. As I understand it, Manafort’s lawyers have a legal right to know who those witnesses are. You can’t prosecute someone and not let the opposing attorney know who the witnesses are. They should have the right to cross-examine them to afford their client the constitutional right to a fair and timely defense. You are required to reveal the people you intend to call as witnesses to the opposition.

I’m really warming to this judge. Judge Ellis also denied the Mueller team permission to ask all potential jurors if they voted for Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump in 2016. Sounds like this judge is a constitutionalist. Bummer for Mueller. “We’re not going to go inquire into how people voted,” Judge Ellis said.

According to CBS, the five people offered immunity who Mueller identified to the court are:

“Dennis Raico: A person named Dennis Raico, according to CNBC, worked at Chicago-based Federal Savings Bank. The government has been [investigating] whether Manafort promised the president of FSB, Steve Calk, a job in exchange for a $16 million home loan.

“Cindy Laporta: Laporta is employed by Kositzka, Wicks and Company, which is Manafort’s accounting firm, Bloomberg reported;

“Conor O’Brien: O’Brien, like Laporta, works for KWC.

“The other two witnesses who have been granted immunity are Donna Duggan and James Brennan.”

This last week, I heard reports that Tony Podesta, the brother of Hillary Clinton campaign manager John Podesta, who has done business with Manafort, was offered immunity. He was not pegged as one of the five in this case. That doesn’t mean Podesta won’t come up as a witness and he may very well still get charged himself. We’ll see. When he is tapped, his name will have to be made public and we will know about it because Mueller is required to inform the court and the defense about potential witnesses.

Judge Ellis is also losing patience with Mueller and nailed him for dragging his feet in all this – from Politico:

“Ellis sounded a skeptical note about the relevance of some of the materials.

““The New York Yankees don’t have anything to do with this case?” the judge asked one of Manafort’s lawyers, who replied that the baseball team could indeed be a topic of discussion since Mueller had listed his client’s season ticket licensing agreements as potential evidence.

“Ellis signaled his reluctance to let the trial veer into “irrelevant stuff” that had little to do with the direct charges the longtime GOP operative faces.

““I’m not going to allow this trial to drag on,” Ellis said. “I’m not in the theater business. You have to be better-looking than that.””

That’s funny. Ellis is constitutional and witty all at once. That’s bad news for Mueller and his team of legalese sharks. I also understand the trial has now been delayed until July. Jury selection begins on July 31st. That’s also good news for Manafort and his attorneys. Secrecy is not going to fly in this trial and I imagine it won’t be a long one. Either Mueller has enough on Manafort to put him away, or he doesn’t. Shenanigans aren’t going to be tolerated here. And as I said, if Manafort goes down, it won’t be for anything to do with Trump. It will have to do with financial dealings that took place long ago. Mueller wants his pound of flesh and he had hoped to force Manafort to flip on Trump. But there’s no there there and Mueller is living now with disappointment. Good, he better get used to it.

After Mexico Refuses To Stop Migrant Invader Mob, Trump Swings Presidential Hammer Of Justice

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!

This is a paid invasion army. It’s time to close the border immediately. I hope President Trump does so.

When you look at this illegal invasion.. you can clearly see most are men. Not women or children. Let’s hope they stop this in time.

From Zero Hedge:

Since President Trump threatened to close the Southern border due to Honduras’ unwillingness to comply with his requests for assistance in stopping a migrant caravan marching toward the US, the migrants have successfully crossed into Mexico and on Sunday regrouped after being temporarily delayed at the Mexican border by border guards who failed to force the migrants to turn back.

So, for the second time this year, it appears President Trump is ready to send more US troops to the border, as he said in a tweet Monday morning that he’d notified the border patrol and military that this is a “national emergency” while reiterating that the blame lay with Democrats for refusing to change our “pathetic” immigration laws.

The president also claimed that “unknown Middle Easterners” had become “mixed in” with the caravan.

And since Honduras and Guatemala did nothing to stop the migrants despite Trump’s requests for assistance, the president added that we would be cutting off aid: “We will now begin cutting off, or substantially reducing, the massive foreign aid routinely given to them.”

The backlash to the migrants has intensified over the weekend, as the mile-long caravan has continued unimpeded toward the US’s southern border. Amusingly, liberals bullied the Associated Press on Sunday into correcting one of its headlines after the wire service described the caravan as an “army of migrants”.

“A ragged, growing army of migrants resumes march toward US,” read the original headline on the AP story. The AP later changed the headline to replace the word “army” with “caravan.”

Though the AP has used the word “army” to refer to large groups of people besides migrants – including nurses and political activists – many on the political left criticized the wire service for its original headline.

Meanwhile, videos have emerged of people handing out cash to the migrants, raising suspicions that the caravan has received outside funding for its assault on the southern border.

Congress Officially Filing Impeachment Charges Against Anti-Trump Politician – Then Unthinkable Happens

Published

President Trump is the Deep State’s biggest enemy. While Trump may be quite alone in his quest to “drain the swamp,” he does have some allies on the Hill.

Members of the Freedom Caucus have been assisting Trump in his battle with Mueller & his band of Democrats in charge of the witch hunt that after two years has produced zero evidence of Russian collusion.

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!

A few months ago, Freedom Caucus leaders Mark Meadows and Jim Jordan filed impeachment charges against Deputy U.S. Attorney General Rod Rosenstein. The reason for the filing was because Rosenstein hadn’t handed over enough documents that had been asked for.

In July Vox reported:

“Hardline conservatives have backed down from a threat to imminently force a House vote on impeaching Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein.

On Wednesday night, Freedom Caucus leaders Reps. Mark Meadows (R-NC) and Jim Jordan (R-OH) filed articles of impeachment against Rosenstein. The stated reason was mainly that Rosenstein allegedly wasn’t giving enough documents to Congress. But in context, the move — which wasn’t even certain to pass the House, let alone lead to Rosenstein’s removal from office — was clearly part of an effort by President Trump’s allies to attack the Justice Department and undermine special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation, which Rosenstein supervises.

When Meadows filed the impeachment articles, only 11 of the 236 Republicans in the House were willing to sign on to them, making it unclear how much support his effort had. House Oversight Committee Chair Trey Gowdy, for instance, had said earlier that he wouldn’t back the effort (“Impeach him for what?” he asked). GOP leaders were also unenthusiastic about the controversial push, which would likely divide their party.

However, Meadows had the opportunity to use House rules to file a “privileged motion,” which would require a vote from the full House in the next two days — effectively forcing his colleagues to take a stand on impeaching Rosenstein even though there have been no hearings on the matter and little debate about it. Republicans facing tough races in November would not have been thrilled.

In the end, however, Meadows decided not to carry out that threat — for now, at least. He did not file a privileged motion for impeachment, and House Republicans announced Thursday morning that they would not vote on the matter before they leave for a month-long recess.

It is possible the effort could be revived in September when the House returns to Washington. But that would be closer to the midterms, meaning Republicans would be even less enthusiastic to take a divisive and controversial vote.

The current word is that Republican leaders agreed to hold a vote on whether Rosenstein is in contempt of Congress in the first week of September, if conservatives don’t get the documents they want by then. (That’s a weaker alternative to an impeachment vote, which at least had the potential to remove him from office.)

After conservatives had agreed to back down from the impeachment push, Speaker Paul Ryan announced publicly that he did not support impeaching Rosenstein. “I don’t think that this rises to the level of high crimes and misdemeanors,” he said.

Meanwhile, word leaked out that Jordan, who co-wrote the impeachment articles, will soon announce that he’s running to replace the retiring Ryan as speaker.”

Now, this could be seen as bad news in the fight against the Deep State, but there is a little hope.

Last month, leaked audio of Rep. Devin Nunes seemed to indicate that Rosenstein could be impeached at a later date. The timing was wrong for it.

USA Today reported:

“Leaked audio of Rep. Devin Nunes, R-Calif., speaking at a Republican dinner fundraiser made public Thursday evening shows the congressman addressing why Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein hasn’t been impeached and saying that Republicans could be the only force stopping President Donald Trump from being impeached.

The audio, obtained exclusively by MSNBC, is of Nunes talking at a dinner event in Spokane, Washington, on July 30. He is asked by an audience member about the effort to impeach Rosenstein, which was only publicly supported by a small group of Republicans.

Nunes, who heads the House Intelligence Committee, seems to explain the main reason Congress hasn’t taken up the issue is due to timing and the upcoming midterm elections.

“It’s a bit complicated,” he told the audience member. “We only have so many months left.”

“So if we actually vote to impeach, OK, what that does is that triggers the Senate then has to take it up,” he said, explaining that it could take away from other priorities of Congress.

He said everything would have to be dropped if impeachment was up for a vote. “So it’s not a matter that any of us like Rosenstein. It’s a matter of, it’s a matter of timing.”

“Do you want them to drop everything and not confirm the Supreme Court justice, the new Supreme Court justice?” he added.

Later, he talks about the midterms and the sincere need to keep a Republican majority in both the House and Senate, something Democrats are hoping to clinch. Nunes details one big reason Republicans are needed: to protect Trump.”

Here’s the audio of Nunes.

Let’s hope Republicans in the House follow through & do their part to drain the swamp & get rid of those who are biased against Trump.
