Corrupt Obama Appointed Deep State Judge Amy Berman Jackson Should be Removed or Impeached for Actions Against Paul Manafort

Every Obama appointed judge is a far left radical who puts their own distorted interpretation of reality ahead of the US Constitution. In this respect, US District Judge Amy Berman Jackson is a case study.

Her actions with Paul Manafort alone are cause for her to be removed or impeached.

TGP reported two months ago that Obama appointed liberal activist Judge, Amy Berman Jackson, was assigned to the most important court case in US history. Judge Jackson has a horrible far left record on the bench. In 2013 Judge Jackson rejected arguments from the Catholic Church that Obamacare’s requirements that employers provide cost free coverage to contraceptive services is contrary to their religious beliefs and violated their religious and free speech freedoms. This was overturned by the Supreme Court.

In 2017 Judge Jackson dismissed the wrongful death suit against Hillary Clinton filed by two of the families who lost loved ones in Benghazi. The families argued that Clinton had done little to help their sons and then lied to cover it up.

Then on January 19th of this year, a Paul Manafort’s case was reassigned to Judge Jackson on January 19th, a few weeks after being filed.

It is unknown why she was assigned to this case or by whom.

What is clear is that with her atrocious and slanted record to date, the Deep State and the Mueller team certainly wanted Judge Jackson overseeing the Manafort case and this is supported by her record to date.

On January 3rd we reported that Paul Manafort filed a suit against the “Deep State” DOJ (Jeff Sessions), Assistant AG Rod Rosenstein and Corrupt Investigator Robert Mueller that would possibly shut down Mueller’s corrupt investigation!

We reported for months on the many criminal and corrupt actions taken by numerous parties related to the Mueller investigation. Mueller never should have taken on the job in the first place due to numerous conflicts. He is best friends with fired leaker and former FBI Director James Comey. He met with Comey shortly before Comey testified with Congress and stratigized with him. For this alone he should have recused himself. The team Mueller built to attack President Trump and have him removed is all Deep State liberal attorneys and crooks. Mueller’s record in the past is scattered with actions that let the Clintons off scot-free on numerous occasions when they should have been put in jail.

We now know that the FBI had an investigation into the Clintons and moneys they received from Russia in return for giving Russia 20% of all US uranium. Prior to the Obama administration approving the very controversial Uranium One deal in 2010 handing Russia 20% of America’s Uranium, the FBI had evidence that Russian nuclear industry officials were involved in bribery, kickbacks, extortion and money laundering in order to benefit Vladimir Putin. The FBI approved the deal anyway. We also know that Rosenstein and Mueller were the ones who allowed the Uranium One deal to go forward. This was the real Russia collusion story involving the US government.

We know that Mueller’s team illegally obtained emails related to the Trump transition team and these emails were protected under attorney-client privilege. Mueller and his entire team should have resigned after this.

But perhaps one of the most damning aspects of the Mueller investigation is that it is not legal. The corrupt Mueller investigation is tasked with finding a crime that does not exist in the law. It is a legal impossibility. Mueller is being asked to do something that is manifestly unattainable.

FOX News Legal Analyst Gregg Jarrett explained this in an article last year that the entire Mueller investigation is lawless. Jarrett argued that:

… George Papadopoulos pled guilty to a single charge of making a false statement to the FBI. He was not charged with so-called “collusion” because no such crime exists in American statutory law, except in anti-trust matters. It has no application to elections and political campaigns.

It is not a crime to talk to a Russian. Not that the media would ever understand that. They have never managed to point to a single statute that makes “colluding” with a foreign government in a political campaign a crime, likely because it does not exist in the criminal codes.

Jarrett then turned his attention to Corrupt Hillary:

It is against the law for the Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee to funnel millions of dollars to a British spy and to Russian sources in order to obtain the infamous and discredited Trump “dossier.” The Federal Election Campaign Act (52 USC 30101) prohibits foreign nationals and governments from giving or receiving money in U.S. campaigns. It also prohibits the filing of false or misleading campaign reports to hide the true purpose of the money (52 USC 30121). This is what Clinton and the DNC appear to have done.

Most often the penalty for violating this law is a fine, but in egregious cases, like this one, criminal prosecutions have been sought and convictions obtained. In this sense, it could be said that Hillary Clinton is the one who was conspiring with the Russians by breaking campaign finance laws with impunity.

But that’s not all. Damning new evidence appears to show that Clinton used her office as Secretary of State to confer benefits to Russia in exchange for millions of dollars in donations to her foundation and cash to her husband. Secret recordings, intercepted emails, financial records, and eyewitness accounts allegedly show that Russian nuclear officials enriched the Clintons at the very time Hillary presided over a governing body which unanimously approved the sale of one-fifth of America’s uranium supply to Russia.

If this proves to be a corrupt “pay-to-play” scheme, it would constitute a myriad of crimes, including bribery (18 USC 201-b), mail fraud (18 USC 1341), and wire fraud (18 USC 1343). It might also qualify for racketeering charges (18 USC 1961-1968), if her foundation is determined to have been used as a criminal enterprise.

The US statutory law is clear and Jarrett points it out. He concluded with the following –

Until now, no one had legal “standing” to argue in court that the appointment of Mueller was illegal. The criminal charges [against Manafort and Papadopoulos] change all that. The two defendants will be able to argue before a judge that Mueller’s appointment by Acting Attorney General Rod Rosenstein violated the special counsel law.

As I pointed out in a column last May, the law (28 CFR 600) grants legal authority to appoint a special counsel to investigate crimes. Only crimes. He has limited jurisdiction. Yet, in his order appointing Mueller as special counsel (Order No. 3915-2017), Rosenstein directed him to investigate “any links and/or coordination between the Russian government and individuals associated with the campaign of President Donald Trump.” It fails to identify any specific crimes, likely because none are applicable.

To put it plainly, Mueller is tasked with finding a crime that does not exist in the law. It is a legal impossibility. He is being asked to do something that is manifestly unattainable.

Manafort sued the DOJ, Mueller and Rosenstein because what they are doing is not supported by US Law.

Manafort’s case also argued in paragraph 33 of its filing that the special counsel put in place by crooked Rosenstein gave crooked and criminal Mueller powers that are not permitted by law. Mueller was given the latitude to investigate whatever he wanted to and that is not permitted by the law. Manafort’s filing paragraph 33 stated –

But paragraph (b)(ii) of the Appointment Order purports to grant Mr. Mueller further authority to investigate and prosecute “any matters that arose or may arise directly from the investigation.” That grant of authority is not authorized by DOJ’s special counsel regulations. It is not a “specific factual statement of the matter to be investigated.” Nor is it an ancillary power to address efforts to impede or obstruct investigation under 28 C.F.R. § 600.4(a).

Manafort’s case was solid but the judge was Obama’s corrupt liberal Judge Jackson. On April 27, 2018, Judge Jackson dismissed Manafort’s plea.

It is very clear that Manafort’s argument was valid. There is no crime in US law for collusion and Rosenstein’s order allowing Mueller to look at whatever he wants was challenged in another Manafort case that Mueller filed against him in Virginia.

Judge T.S. Ellis blasted prosecutors, saying he believes Robert Mueller is effectively using the Paul Manafort case to provide material that would lead to Trump’s “prosecution or impeachment”. He also condemned the investigation for having no barriers.

Judge Jackson actually expressed concerns about Manafort being indicted in two different courts. Far left liberal Politico even reported in February –

… the judge also expressed some concern about “overlap” between the Washington case and the Virginia one, although she said ultimately the burden of two successive trials is likely to fall most heavily on the defense.

“It seems the government is setting itself up to put on the same evidence twice in different courtrooms,” Jackson said. “There’s a risk of inconsistent [rulings] on the motions and evidentiary rulings and jury findings.”

Ultimately, though, Jackson said she didn’t view the parallel cases as a big problem. “The burden is at its least on the courts. We can handle two trials,” she said.

Prosecutor Greg Andres stressed that Mueller’s team gave Manafort the option to face a single case in Washington on all the charges, but Manafort declined to waive his right to have the tax charges brought in Virginia, which is where he lived when he filed the tax returns at issue.

Manafort was smart in moving his case out from under Judge Jackson to Virginia. It looks like this move and having his case in front of a judge not appointed by corrupt Obama was a great move.

Judge Jackson is not only wrong in her judgements, she is also overly abusive to Manafort. She scolded Manafort and his team for a statement his spokesman issued maintaining his innocence and said the comments appeared to run afoul of the order she issued in November limiting public statements about the case by lawyers involved and by the defendants. Of course she says nothing about the many leaks from the corrupt Mueller team.

In a final note, Judge Jackson set the court date for Manafort’s case that she oversees for mid-September, right before the mid-term elections. Clearly she is trying to have this publicized and negatively impact Republican chances in the election. What a piece of rotten work!

Obama’s Liberal Judge Jackson is a real piece of work. Let’s hope and pray for the sake of the Union that Judge Ellis puts her in her place for allowing the Mueller investigation to go on with no real oversite or scope and shuts the whole damn corrupt mess down.

Crooked, Corrupt and Unconstitutional Mueller Squad Charged Russian Company Not in Existence at Time of Charge!

This week, on Wednesday May 9th, a hearing took place between the corrupt Mueller team and one of the Russian Companies they indicted for interfering with the 2016 US election, Concord Management. Concord Management and a sister company Concord Catering were charged by Mueller for defrauding the government. The Mueller crooks were embarrassed again!

A week ago Friday at a hearing on this same case, Mueller’s team asked for the case to be delayed. The judge politely declined and the initial hearing on the case was held on Wednesday. Mueller’s team is represented by former Clinton Foundation attorney, Jeannie Rhee. CNN applauds Rhee for being on the Mueller team while ignoring her and the entire team’s conflicts of interest –

Rhee represented Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton in a lawsuit about her private emails, and she also represented the Clinton Foundation in a civil racketeering case that was later dismissed.

Rhee also represented President Barack Obama’s deputy national security adviser Ben Rhodes during the House Benghazi Committee’s investigation into the deadly 2012 terrorist attack in Libya.

During the hearing, the judge asked the attorney representing Concord Management if he was also representing Concord Catering. The attorney for Concord Management explained that he is not because the indictment contains the ‘proverbial ham sandwich’, as noted earlier this week at TGP.

What was not yet available until last night was the transcript of the hearing. The reason the Concord Management attorneys called the case a ‘proverbial ham sandwich’ was because one of the entities indicted by the Mueller team, Concord Catering, was not in existence at the time the crimes were alleged to have taken place.

Here is a copy of the transcript noted in the tweet above –

The Mueller team is a disaster. It’s investigation is unconstitutional. It’s team has more conflicts than any case in US history. It’s cases are crap! Shut it down!

COMPLETE LIST of the Results of the Incredible Trump Economy=> The Biggest Story Not Being Told Today

 

President Trump has now been in office a year and a quarter and the economic results of his efforts are astounding! In every economic measurement, President Trump’s economy is on fire and moving in the right direction.

The main stream media (MSM) and Democrat Party continue to smear the current President with the fake Russia collusion narrative. But they are being more dishonest in not sharing the truth about President Trump’s many economic accomplishments.

US Stock Markets

In President Trump’s first year and a quarter since the election and since his inauguration the US Stock Markets reached record highs and millions of Americans are benefiting in their retirement savings accounts.

(chart from Yahoo Finance)

Since President Trump’s election the DOW daily closing stock market average has risen as much as 44%. (On November 9th the DOW closed at 18,332 – in January the DOW reached heights of over 26,500.).

On February 28th, 2017, President Trump matched President Reagan’s 1987 record for the most continuous closing high trading days when the DOW reached a new high for its 12th day in a row!

Under President Trump the DOW set the record for the fastest 500 point increase between major milestones when it reached 26,000 on January 17th. It only took 6 days to increase 500 points from 25,500. As a matter of fact, since President Trump’s election the DOW has set records for the fastest 500, 1000, 2000, 3000, 4000, 5000, 6000 and 7000 point increases in the DOW’s history!

2017 was the best year ever for the DOW. It increased more points than ever in its history (4,956) and it reached more all-time highs (71) than any year in history!

Every US stock index has reached all-time highs during the Trump Presidency. The Russell 2000 is currently only 7 points from the highest levels ever (1,603 on May 10, 2018 and record is 1,610 in January 2018).

Corporate Earnings

We are experiencing the best quarterly results increase from one year to the next in US history. Marketwatch reported in early May that the first quarter’s earnings are the best in a quarter century –

According to Thomson Reuters I/B/E/S, of the 343 companies, or about 70%, of S&P 500 members that have reported earnings to date, 79.9% have reported earnings per share that were above analysts’ expectations, putting the season on track for the highest earnings beat rate on record, going back to 1994.

So far, the first-quarter growth rate for EPS is 22%, compared with consensus earnings growth of 16.3% as of April 12, according to Lindsey Bell, investment strategist at CFRA. That outperformance is underpinned by some of the most highly valued companies, including JPMorgan Chase & Co. JPM, -0.50% Apple Inc. AAPL, -0.44% Facebook Inc. FB, -0.32% and Amazon.com Inc. AMZN, -0.36%

Bell said recent quarterly results have seen outperformance of about 3 to 4 percentage points better than analysts’ consensus estimates on average, compared with the 5.7 percentage points earnings are currently running ahead.

US Debt

As of May 1st, 2018, President Trump has increased the US Debt since his inauguration by $1.1 Trillion or 5.5%.

But this is less than half of President Obama’s increase in the US debt in his first year and a quarter ($2.3 Trillion or 21.8%).

US GDP at an all-time high. Also, the debt to GDP rate is declining. When Obama took over the Presidency in 2008 the US debt to GDP ratio was 68% but after eight years the ratio increased to 105%. In his first year in 2017 President Trump decreased the ratio to 103.7%. This means that under President Trump the GDP is growing faster than the debt. This was the most the debt to GDP ratio decreased in any President’s first year in 50 years.

The US had a surplus in April which was the greatest one month surplus in the country’s history. The Washington Times reported –

The federal government took in a record tax haul in April en route to its biggest-ever monthly budget surplus, the Congressional Budget Office said, as a surging economy left Americans with more money in their paychecks — and this more to pay to Uncle Sam.

All told the government collected $515 billion and spent $297 billion, for a total monthly surplus of $218 billion. That swamped the previous monthly record of $190 billion, set in 2001.

CBO analysts were surprised by the surplus, which was some $40 billion more than they’d guessed at less than a month ago.

Analysts said they’ll have a better idea of what’s behind the surge as more information rolls in, but for now said it looks like individual taxpayers are paying more because they have higher incomes.

Jobs

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics President Trump has added nearly 3 million jobs since January of 2017 (2.793 million). President Obama on the other hand lost nearly 5 million jobs in his first year and a quarter in office for an 8 million job difference!

President Obama was so bad at creating jobs that by the end of his second term he said that jobs were not coming back.

Unemployment

Also according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics President Trump decreased unemployment to its current level of 3.9%. The unemployment rate in January 2017 was 4.8%.

President Obama on the other hand again moved in the opposite direction. In his first year and a quarter as President the US unemployment rate increased from 7.8% in January 2009 to 9.9% as of April 2010. The unemployment rate during this time reached as high as 10%.

Jobless claims are at a 49 year low. On May 10, 2018 Marketwatch reported –

The number of people who applied for U.S. unemployment benefits in early May stood at 211,000 for the second straight week, keeping initial jobless claims near a 49-year low.

Unemployment is at a near 20 year low at 3.9%. Rueters reported –

The U.S. unemployment rate dropped to 3.9 percent, a low not seen since the dot-com bubble.

Food Stamps

Food stamps decreased significantly as reported by Breitbart from 42 million down to 40 million during President Trump’s time in office.

More than 2.2 million people have discontinued their participation in food stamps during President Trump’s first full year in office, according to the latest U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) data on food stamp enrollment.

Decrease in Regulations

One of the first things that President Trump did in office was to reduce the number or burdensome regulations put in place during the Obama era. In January President Trump signed his 2 for 1 executive order mandating that for every new regulation, two regulations needed to be revoked. Even far left Politico noted that significant federal regulations since Trump’s inauguration have slowed to an almost total halt.

Regulations cost Americans and American companies money to implement and maintain. Reducing or halting regulations allows companies to spend their money on more prudent money making areas.

All This and More

ISIS destroyed

Largest tax cut ever

US energy independent

Approval rating over 50%

Conservative Judge in Supreme Court

Three American captives freed from North Korea

Korean Peace treaty

And on and on and on…..To date the US is very blessed to have the current President – Donald Trump – in office.

In Summary

Overall based on the above data it is clear that President Trump is doing a solid, if not excellent job. The mainstream liberal media won’t report this, but when looking at the economy, President Trump the billionaire businessman has set the economy on fire.

Internet Sleuths Uncover Obama’s Probable Top Secret Spy on Trump Campaign

Internet sleuths have done it again. The work of two individuals on the Internet appears to indicate that they have determined who the FBI spy was on the Trump campaign.

Jeff Carlson at theMarketswork on Thursday put together a piece where he places an individual by the name of Stefan Halper as a potential FBI spy into the Trump campaign. (Note that some believe that Obama may have had more than one spy on the Trump campaign).

Carlson determined that George Papadopoulos, the lower level campaign worker for the Trump campaign, appears to have been targeted by three individuals with ties to British and/or U.S. Intelligence: Joseph Mifsud, Alexander Downer and Stefan Halper.

Mifsud and Papadopoulos obtained positions at an organization named the Centre for International Energy and Natural Resources Law & Security. Papadopoulos was a nobody and the Centre sketchy at best. Mifsud vanished in early November 2017, shortly after Papadopoulos was in the news and indicted. His whereabouts are still unknown.

Carlson notes –

Although the common story is that Mifsud is a Russian Agent, many ties seem to lead [him] back to UK Intelligence. Julian Assange put out a Twitter Thread noting the connection between Mifsud and UK Intelligence.”

Alexander Downer is the Australian individual who apparently overheard Papadopooulos talk about Trump and Russia in a bar which alerted the FBI to the story and their eventual spy program on Trump. This story has been refuted for months. Carlson writes –

Shortly after the Papadopoulos and Downer chance encounter Peter Strzok was in London per texts released by the FBI. “Strzok texts suggest he was in London on August 3, 2016.” The corrupt FBI’s investigation into Trump officially started a few days earlier.

But, the most intriguing individual noted by Carlson is Halper. Carlson concludes his post with the following –

History! President Trump Welcomes Home Three American Captives from the Hermit Kingdom!

Last night early in the morning President Trump, his beautiful wife, the Vice President and his wife along with new Secretary of State Mike Pompeo welcomed home three Americans that were let free from North Korea. It was history in the making!

At a little past 3am Eastern time President Trump welcomed home three Americans held hostage in North Korea. It is the beginning of what is hoped to be concrete and demonstrable moves that will end towards Korea becoming nuclear free.

In 2017 the media went wild after the President tweeted that his nuclear button was bigger than North Korea’s –

The responses were dramatic –

But last night the President proved himself right and the whole world is noticing.  My good friend from Korea emailed me over night –

Hi Joe

I told you yesterday that the three Americans may be freed, and this actually took place. It is getting more interesting… let us see how these things develop and what Donald Trump will bring to the world!!

Thank God Hillary Clinton and her liberal elites are not managing the world like prior President Obama! #MAGA

It’s Official – AG Sessions in California Presser Divulges He is a Part of the Deep State – He Absolutely Must Go!

On Monday the US Attorney General Jeff Sessions held a press conference at the San Diego border. During the presser Sessions replied to a question surreptitiously admitting he is part of the Deep State. This is why Congress wants him held in contempt.

This weekend US House representative Devin Nunes dropped a bomb on FOX News as reported by Sara Carter –

House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes revealed Sunday that Congress will hold Department of Justice Attorney General Jeff Sessions in contempt for refusing to turn over classified information the committee has requested, he stated in a phone interview with Fox and Friends.

The Department of Justice also shot back on Sunday, releasing the letter sent to Nunes on May 3, which addressed the classified information Nunes had requested. It appears from the letter Nunes had asked for information on a specific individual, not yet named and considered by DOJ to be a very valuable person for a counterintelligence operation.

A day later on Monday, sleepy and corrupt AG Sessions held a press conference at the US border. During a question and answer period Sessions responded to a query about Congressman’s Devin Nunez’s statements on Sunday. Sessions responded –

The Department of Justice has written him a letter and to responded appropriate to him. Ah. The request he’s made is one that the intelligence communities and the Department of Justice feels is not grant-able. We explained that we liked, that we’d be willing to talk to him about it before the details about which I’ve written to him can be discussed.

As Sean Hannity later states in the above video, if thesed guys don’t do their job and stop the redacting and start providing documents requested by Congress, it is time for Sessions and Rosenstein to be held in contempt.

It is now time and it has been time for many months. Sessions’ FBI and DOJ redact documents to cover for their crimes and corruption. They created the phony and unconstitutional investigation into President Trump and the non-existent collusion with Russia. This is not a crime and after many months of investigation, there is no proof of this non-existent crime even occurring.

Based on Sessions actions to date and his now more outward stance above, it is clear he is part of the Deep State. Sessions must be held in contempt. Sessions must go.

Legal Expert Gregg Jarrett from FOX News Says Sessions and Rosenstein Should Be Held in Contempt

FOX News Legal Expert Gregg Jarrett discussed yesterday why AG Jeff Sessions and Assistant AG Rod Rosenstein should be held in contempt.

Josh Caplan tweeted –

Gregg Jarrett on why Sessions and Rosenstein must be held in contempt: The FBI and DOJ redacted the very documents they kept secret in order to cover up the corruption of James Comey and Robert Mueller.

Here is the video –

It is clear that holding Sessions and Rosenstein in contempt of Congress is a good start. Then lock them up!

Still Haunted by Her Inner and Outer Demons Hillary Wears Back Brace for New Zealand Speech

Hillary was in New Zealand Monday night for a speaking engagement and book tour. She wore what appears to be a back brace while speaking to another less than half full arena. Her inner and outer demons were on display for the Kiwis. Sad.

Hillary’s health issues are again in the news. One Internet doctor, Dr. Ted Noel, believes that she has Parkinson’s disease. He’s believed this since before the election and provides evidence for his position.

Dr. Noel states –

Even if I’m wrong about Hillary and Parkinson’s disease, it’s very clear that’s she’s quite frail. The very fact that she has to be supported when walking down wide steps makes her look like that great grandmother you see shuffling into church.

Donald Trump is older than she is but is able to outwork most people and still play golf at a level that impresses even touring pros. Add to Hillary’s frailty the mental difficulty her excuse parade reveals and you can see that America dodged a major bullet by not electing her and that’s without all the good things we’re seeing with Donald Trump in the White House.

Hillary spoke to an auditorium in Auckland that seats 12,000 but only 3,000 showed. Some things never change as Hillary had a difficult time filling small high school auditoriums during the election. Her posture was not that of a healthy person and it looks like she’s wearing some sort of back brace.


Even subliminally people around the world know Hillary is sick. One New Zealand announcer introduced her by stating – “Hillary Rodham Clinton knows all about the challenges of standing up!” This could not be more accurate. [fyi – ‘Standing up’ means running for office in New Zealand.]


She ended the evening with visual evidence that she is still hemmed in by her inner and outer demons –


Call an exorcist!

Trump’s Right: Mueller Special Counsel is Unconstitutional and His Team is the Most Conflicted Group of Attorneys and Inspectors in US History

<

President Trump this morning mocked crooked cop Robert Mueller and his band of angry Democrats in their failed attempt to steal and election.

However, CNN promotes the Mueller team in an undated and interactive post online. Their description of 18 team members would lead the casual observer to believe that this is an experienced team full of competent individuals. What CNN does not share is that the investigation is unconstitutional for many reasons with one of the reasons being that the team is the most conflicted group of investigators and attorneys ever assembled for any investigation in US history.

Below is the list from CNN with additional information not provided by CNN in italics!

Zainab Ahmad

An expert in prosecuting terrorism and organized crime, Zainab Ahmad previously served as an assistant US attorney for the Eastern District of New York. She joined Mueller’s team in the summer of 2017.

Role on Mueller team:

Ahmad has worked on the case of former national security adviser Michael Flynn: She was one of two prosecutors who signed Flynn’s charging documents and was also in court for Flynn’s guilty plea in December 2017.

Notable cases:

Ahmad successfully prosecuted al-Qaeda terrorist Najibullah Zazi, who pleaded guilty in 2010 to terrorism charges relating to a plot to bomb the New York City subways on the 9/11 anniversary.

In 2017, Ahmad co-led the prosecution of Muhanad Mahmoud Al Farekh, an American citizen who was convicted on nine counts related to an al-Qaeda plan to attack US troops in Afghanistan.

What CNN Left Out – The Flynn case is now up in the air since Ahmad signed the charging documents. The judge over the case, Rudolph Contreras, was recused from the case for still unknown reasons. He was also a FISA Court judge who was courted for dinner with former Mueller team members Peter Strzok and Lisa Page. Strzok participated in the FBI’s questioning of Flynn on January 24 before joining Mueller’s team.

The new judge overseeing the case, Judge Emmet G. Sullivan ordered Special Counsel Robert Mueller to provide Flynn’s attorneys with any and all information that may have been withheld from the case. Sara Carter reported that “Flynn pled guilty to one count of lying to the FBI, despite testimony provided to Congress by former FBI Director James Comey, where he stated that the agents did not believe Flynn had lied about his conversation with former Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak in December 2016.”

Greg Andres

Greg Andres is a white-collar criminal defense lawyer who specializes in fraud and foreign bribery. He served as a deputy assistant attorney general in the Justice Department’s Criminal Division, and was involved in the successful prosecution of an $8 billion Ponzi scheme. Most recently, Andres worked as a corporate lawyer at the law firm Davis Polk & Wardwell.

Role on Mueller team:

On the Mueller team, he is jointly leading the case against former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort and his deputy Rick Gates. In October 2017, Manafort and Gates were charged with financial crimes unrelated to the 2016 presidential campaign, and both have pleaded not guilty.

Notable cases:

Andres was involved in the prosecution of Robert Allen Stanford in an $8 billion Ponzi scheme case. Stanford was convicted in 2012 on 13 counts, including mail fraud, money laundering and conspiracy.

While in the US attorney’s office in Brooklyn, Andres led a mafia investigation that convicted dozens of mob associates. In those situations, the prosecutors attempted to pressure witnesses into cooperation — also known as “flipping.” Leaders of the Bonanno organized crime family in New York even hatched a plan to kill him, though they never carried it out, according to court documents.

What CNN Left Out – Per Daily Caller

Reuters reported that Andres, who most recently worked as white collar defense attorney for the New York firm Davis Polk, will be joining Mueller’s investigation into Russian election interference.

A search of federal election records shows that Andres has donated at least a total of $3700 to federal Democratic candidates, including $2700 to New York Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand in March 2017….

Andres, 50, also has another connection to the Democratic Party as his wife, Ronnie Abrams, is a federal judge that was nominated by President Barack Obama in 2011.

Abrams was also reportedly assigned to a case in which a watchdog group is claiming President Trump has violated the Constitution because his hotels do business with foreign governments. She has since recused herself from this case.

Rush Atkinson

Before joining Mueller’s team, trial attorney Rush Atkinson worked for the Criminal Division Securities and Financial Fraud Unit at the Justice Department, where he worked under Andrew Weissmann, who is also now on Mueller’s team. Atkinson previously worked in the Justice Department’s National Security Division, which specializes in counterterrorism and foreign intelligence surveillance cases.

Role on Mueller team:

Atkinson has been involved in the case against 13 Russian nationals and 3 Russian entities for allegedly meddling in the 2016 election by using social media to spread divisive political messages.

Notable cases:

Atkinson was involved with the indictment of a former vice president of finance for Bankrate, Inc. The former bank official was charged with wire fraud, securities fraud and other financial crimes.

Atkinson also helped with the prosecution of a mother and son charged with orchestrating a $16 million Medicare fraud scheme in Miami.

What CNN Left Out – Per zerohedge Atkinson is another biased team member having donated $200 to Clinton’s campaign in 2016. Also, this Friday one of the 3 indicted Russian companies, Concord Management, that is noted above has asked for information related to the indictment that many are suggesting will end in the Mueller team dropping the indictments due to lack of evidence.

Ryan Dickey

Ryan Dickey was previously an assistant US attorney in the Eastern District of Virginia and also worked in the Justice Department’s Computer Crime and Intellectual Property Section. He specializes in cyber-related prosecutions and was added to Mueller’s team in late 2017.

Role on Mueller team:

Dickey has been involved in the case against 13 Russian nationals and 3 Russian entities for allegedly meddling in the 2016 election by using social media to spread divisive political messages.

Notable cases:

Dickey was involved in the sprawling case against Megaupload, the online file sharing website that the Justice Department described as an “international organized criminal enterprise” that perpetrated “massive online piracy.” Dickey helped secure a guilty plea from an Estonian programmer involved in the case.

He was senior counsel in the case against the hacker known as Guccifer, a Romanian national who hacked the accounts of prominent Americans and was sentenced to prison in 2016. (Guccifer is unrelated to Guccifer 2.0, the online persona used by Russian intelligence operatives during the 2016 presidential election that claimed credit for hacking the Democratic National Committee.)

What CNN Left Out – Ask Kim Dotcom about the FBI’s actions in the Megaupload case. His house in New Zealand was raided in a similar fashion to the Mueller raid on Paul Manafort. They have frozen his assets and taken other actions similar to the bullying actions they are using today on Trump family and friends.

 

Michael Dreeben

Michael Dreeben is a deputy solicitor general at the Justice Department. He has argued more than 100 cases before the Supreme Court throughout his extensive legal career. Dreeben is considered to be one of Mueller’s most significant hires because of his expertise in criminal law and appellate advocacy.

Role on Mueller team:

In February 2018, a federal judge weighing whether to release the Comey memos revealed that Dreeben had secretly provided testimony to the court about Mueller’s investigation

Notable cases:

Dreeben argued his first Supreme Court case in 1989 against a young lawyer named John Roberts, who would later become chief justice. Since then, Dreeben has appeared before the high court more than 100 times, representing the US government in cases ranging from privacy issues to insider trading.

Dreeben made an unrelated first Supreme Court appearance since joining the Mueller team on detail. He argued on behalf of the US government in a Fourth Amendment cell phone privacy case in November 2017.

What CNN Left Out – CNN notes that Dreeben secretly provided testimony to the court about Mueller’s investigation. Of course everything about these guys is secret and corrupt.

Kyle Freeny

Prior to joining the Mueller investigation, Kyle Freeny was a Justice Department prosecutor for the Kleptocracy Asset Recovery Initiative, which focuses on foreign corruption and money laundering.

Role on Mueller team:

Freeny is working on the Manafort and Gates case, appearing in court alongside her special counsel colleagues Andrew Weissmann and Greg Andres.

Notable cases:

Freeny was involved with the prosecution of a civil forfeiture case against the production company behind “The Wolf of Wall Street,” which was allegedly funded with laundered money from the Malaysian government. The Justice Department said the case led to the largest single action ever brought under the Kleptocracy Asset Recovery Initiative.

Freeny also defended the federal government in 2014 when 26 states filed a lawsuit challenging President Barack Obama’s executive orders on immigration, according to court filings.

What CNN Left Out – Per zerohedge, in 2012, Freeny gave $300 to Obama. In 2008, Freeny also gave $250 to Obama, FEC records show.

Andrew Goldstein

Andrew Goldstein led the public corruption unit in the US attorney’s office in Manhattan. He worked under former US Attorney Preet Bharara, who was fired by Trump in March after he refused to resign.

Role on Mueller team:

Goldstein, with special counsel colleagues Jeannie Rhee and Aaron Zelinsky, was involved in handling the case of former Trump campaign adviser George Papadopoulos. In October 2017, it was revealed that Papadopoulos pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI and was cooperating with Mueller’s investigation.

Notable cases:

Goldstein was part of the team that secured a 2015 corruption conviction of Sheldon Silver, the former Democratic speaker of the New York State Assembly. (Silver’s conviction was overturned by a federal appeals court in July 2017, which ruled that there was an issue with the judge’s instructions to the jury.)

Goldstein also successfully prosecuted three men associated with a New York City municipal fraud and kickback scheme project called CityTime. The investigation examined more than 150 bank accounts, hundreds of thousands of documents and more than 100 witnesses, according to the Justice Department.

What CNN Left Out – According to Fox News, “Goldstein contributed a combined $3,300 to Obama’s campaigns in 2008 and 2012” He also Worked under Trump-basher Preet Bharara in the liberal New York southern district.

Notable cases:

Jed has worked on several high-profile Supreme Court cases during the Obama administration, including United States v. Windsor, which overturned the Defense of Marriage Act.

Jed also defended the Affordable Care Act’s contraceptive mandate in the Little Sisters of the Poor v. Sebelius case. The Supreme Court sent the case back to a lower court in 2016, punting on the issue.

What CNN Left Out – Little Sisters of the Poor – Enough said.

Scott Meisler

Scott Meisler was an appellate lawyer in the Justice Department’s Criminal Division for several years before joining the Mueller team in the summer of 2017. He specializes in surveillance and fraud cases.

Role on Mueller team:

Notable cases:

In 2012, Meisler won a Justice Department Criminal Division award for “Outstanding Contributions by a New Employee” for winning an en banc decision from the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals in an honest-services fraud case, according to a press release.

What CNN Left Out – Unknown but based on the rest of the team, he undoubtedly has conflicts as well.

Robert Mueller

Earlier in his life, Mueller served as a decorated Marine in the Vietnam War. He later spent 12 years working in US attorney’s offices, including prominent roles leading the offices in San Francisco and Boston.

Mueller took over as FBI director just days before the September 11th attacks. He served until September 2013, making him the second-longest FBI director in US history, behind J. Edgar Hoover.

Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, a Trump appointee, named Mueller special counsel in May 2017. He authorized Mueller to investigate Russian interference in the 2016 election, any links between Trump associates and Russia and “any matters that arose or may arise directly from the investigation.”

His appointment earned praise from Democrats and Republicans, who called him a man of integrity. Trump and many of his GOP allies have since ratcheted up criticism of Mueller and his entire investigation.

RELATED: Robert Mueller and his pursuit of justice

What CNN Left Out – Best friend to fired leaker James Comey. Hand delivered uranium to the Russians per the direction of Hillary Clinton on an airport tarmac in Europe. He was also FBI Director when Uranium One Obama-Clinton scandal took place.

Reuters reported –

Robert Mueller, the former FBI director who is now leading the investigation of potential ties between Donald Trump’s campaign and Russian officials, was a lawyer for Trump son-in-law and adviser Jared Kushner right up until Mueller resigned from Wilmer to accept his appointment as special counsel in the Russia probe.

The two ex-Wilmer partners who have joined Mueller’s special counsel team, Aaron Zebley and James Quarles, were also Kushner’s lawyers. And they and Mueller represented former Trump campaign chair Paul Manafort, too, when they were Wilmer partners.

What the hell?

Elizabeth Prelogar

Notable cases:

Prelogar argued on behalf of the federal government in a case that questioned whether uncounseled, misdemeanor convictions heard in Indian tribal court could be used as part of domestic violence cases heard in federal court. The case was decided unanimously in favor of the United States.

Prelogar also worked on Carpenter v. United States, a case pending before the Supreme Court that questions whether the government’s acquisition of cellphone records from cellphone providers violates the individual customer’s Fourth Amendment rights.

What CNN Left Out – –Fluent in Russian; former law clerk to far left Supreme Court Justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Elena Kagan.

James Quarles

James Quarles was a young assistant special prosecutor on the Watergate Special Prosecution Force in the mid-1970s. He then joined the Boston-based law firm Hale and Dorr and led its Washington office while specializing in intellectual property litigation. That law firm merged with an old-line DC partnership — Wilmer, Cutler & Pickering — and Quarles joined its executive committee. Mueller also worked at that firm, known as WilmerHale, and he brought Quarles along after he was appointed special counsel.

Notable cases:

Quarles’ former clients as a private attorney include Apple, the NFL and Volkswagen, for which he worked alongside Mueller to oversee hundreds of settlements brought against the car maker regarding its diesel emissions, according to a federal ethics disclosure.

What CNN Left Out – See above under Mueller. Also note that Hillary Clinton was also on Watergate investigation.

Jeannie Rhee

Rhee, a white-collar crime specialist focusing on government investigations, left the private firm WilmerHale to join Mueller’s team. During the Obama administration, she served as a deputy assistant attorney general in the Office of Legal Counsel, which can weigh some of the thorniest legal questions for the executive branch.

Role on Mueller team:

Rhee has been involved in the case against 13 Russian nationals and 3 Russian entities for allegedly meddling in the 2016 election by using social media to spread divisive political messages. She also worked on George Papadopoulos’ guilty plea, for lying to the FBI.

Notable cases:

Rhee has tried over 30 cases for the Department of Justice. During the Obama administration, she advised the White House and attorney general on criminal law, executive privilege and other legal matters, according to her biography on the Council of Korean Americans website.

Rhee represented Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton in a lawsuit about her private emails, and she also represented the Clinton Foundation in a civil racketeering case that was later dismissed.

Rhee also represented President Barack Obama’s deputy national security adviser Ben Rhodes during the House Benghazi Committee’s investigation into the deadly 2012 terrorist attack in Libya.

What CNN Left Out – Per zerohedge Rhee donated $5,400 to Hillary Clinton in 2015 and 2016, according to FEC records. The records show she gave $2,500 each to Obama for America and Obama Victory Fund 2012 in 2011. The fact that she is even on the team after representing the Clinton Foundation is shocking!

Brian Richardson

Brian Richardson clerked for Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer during the October 2016 term, before joining Mueller’s team in July 2017. A graduate of Yale Law School, Richardson previously worked for judges in the US district court in Brooklyn and the 2nd US Circuit Court of Appeals, according to Above the Law.

Role on Mueller team:

Richardson appeared in court alongside special counsel colleagues Andrew Weissmann, Greg Andres and Kyle Freeny for the plea hearing of Dutch lawyer Alex van der Zwaan in February 2018. Van der Zwaan pleaded guilty to lying to investigators about his discussions with former Trump campaign aide Rick Gates.

What CNN Left Out – Unknown but based on the rest of the team and his work with Weissmann, he undoubtedly has conflicts as well.

Brandon Van Grack

Brandon Van Grack served in the Justice Department’s National Security Division. He prosecuted counter-espionage cases in the department’s Counterintelligence and Export Control Section.

Role on Mueller team:

Van Grack is one of the lawyers on Mueller’s team that handled the Flynn investigation and guilty plea. He is overseeing Flynn’s case in court.

Notable cases:

Van Grack has been involved in several high-profile cyber and counter-terrorism cases, including the prosecution of a Kosovo hacker who gave personal information of US service members to ISIS. The hacker, Ardit Ferizi, was sentenced to 20 years in prison, according to a DOJ press release.

Van Grack also helped prosecute a US government employee who took home classified documents that contained national defense information. National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency employee Mohan L. Nirala was found guilty after federal agents made a forced entry into his home and discovered over 500 pages of classified documents in his basement, according to a DOJ press release.

What CNN Left Out – Led a grand jury inquiry in Northern Virginia scrutinizing former Trump associate Michael Flynn’s foreign lobbying.

Andrew Weissmann

Andrew Weissmann was one of Mueller’s first hires, leaving his Justice Department role as chief of the Criminal Division Fraud Section. The two men have worked together for several years at the FBI – Weissman was Mueller’s special counsel in 2005, and the bureau’s general counsel in 2011. He’s known for his aggressive approach to white collar cases.

Role on Mueller team:

Weissmann jointly leads the case against Manafort and Gates.

Notable cases:

Weissmann famously led the Justice Department’s Enron Task Force in the early 2000s, where he investigated over 30 members of the company’s upper echelon. One of Weissmann’s more memorable tactics included charging the spouse of Enron’s chief financial officer Andrew Fastow. The approach led to guilty pleas from both Fastows, and the former business leader’s cooperation in the investigation.

Weissmann was responsible for trying more than 25 cases and prosecuting several members of the Genovese, Colombo and Gambino crime families in the Brooklyn US attorney’s office, according to a DOJ press release.

Weissmann was also involved in a cooperation agreement signed between the US government and Felix Sater in 1998, according to court filings. Sater, who did business with President Donald Trump in the 2000s, would later become an FBI informant who helped the government pursue organized crime figures. His activities during the campaign attracted the scrutiny of investigators on the House Intelligence Committee. He testified before the panel in December 2017.

What CNN Left Out – Weissmann donated $2,300 to the Obama Victory Fund in 2008, $2,000 to the DNC in 2006 and at least $2,300 to the Clinton campaign in 2007. He was at the Hillary Clinton election night funeral and sent an email congratulating former AG Sally Yates when she refused to obey President Trump’s immigration order.

Thousands of Americans lost their jobs as a result of Weissmann actions and indictment of Arthur Andersen that were later overturned by the US Supreme Court 9-0.

Aaron Zebley

Aaron Zebley previously served as Mueller’s chief of staff at the FBI. Zebley also worked as the senior counselor in the National Security Division at the Justice Department and as a special agent in the FBI’s Counter Terrorism Division. He joined WilmerHale shortly after Mueller and left when Mueller was appointed special counsel.

Notable cases:

Zebley was part of the FBI team that investigated the September 11th attacks. He was involved in the trial of al-Qaeda operative Zacarias Moussaoui, who was convicted and sentenced to life in prison.

Zebley also played a role in tracking down terrorists behind the twin US embassy bombings in Kenya and Tanzania in 1998.

More recently, Zebley once represented former Clinton aide Justin Cooper, who helped manage her private server.

What CNN Left Out – See above under Mueller.

Aaron Zelinsky

Aaron Zelinsky joined the Mueller team on detail from the US attorney’s office in Maryland. Zelinsky served as an assistant US attorney under Rod Rosenstein, who is now the deputy attorney general and oversees Mueller’s appointment.

Role on Mueller team:

Zelinsky was involved in the Papadopoulos investigation and guilty plea.

Notable cases:

As part of his role as a prosecutor in Maryland, Zelinsky was involved in prosecuting cases of felon gun ownership, health care fraud conspiracy, and food stamp fraud and wire fraud.

In 2016, Zelinsky was recognized by the Justice Department for excellence in prosecuting organized criminal activity.

What CNN Left Out – Asst AG Rosenstein is as corrupt as they get having created the Special Counsel with multiple conflicts of interest including long standing relationships with Mueller and Comey. He also signed off on FISA warrants to spy on President Trump and oversees the Mueller investigation that was created with no crime committed or identified and a scope enabling Mueller to investigate anything. See link to unconstitutionality of the investigation above…

Finally, Overall What CNN Left Out – CNN does not mention two former members of the Mueller team,

Peter Strzok and Lisa Page

Page, was an attorney on detail from the FBI’s Office of the General Counsel and a former trial attorney with the Criminal Division’s Organized Crime and Gang Section – Investigated Ukrainian oligarch Dmitry Firtash, a one-time business partner of former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort, at the DOJ. She is noted as leaking to the press in the DOJ IG’s memo on McCabe and she is reportedly a lover of Peter Strzok. Page resigned from the FBI last week.

Strzok oversaw the Clinton email investigation and then was lead investigator on the Trump investigation. Numerous incriminating texts have been revealed between Strzok and Page. He oversaw Hillary’s testimony in the email investigation. He never took notes, never put her under oath and never recorded the meeting. He recommended that her crimes not be brought to the courts.

President Trump is right. The Mueller team is a crock of conflicted and crooked attorneys and investigators. They are not honest and their lack of independence fully taint the entire investigation. For this alone, the investigation should be shut down.

Mueller’s Team Being Called for Their Bluff by Russian Company

The Mueller team is being called on their bluff. They produced a list of Russians and Russian companies in February who they said impacted the US election. One of the companies, Concord Management, is requesting the information Mueller used to create the indictments. Mueller and his Clinton Foundation attorney Jeannie Rhee never expected this!

Far Left Politico reported late last week:

On Friday, Mueller’s prosecutors disclosed that Concord’s attorneys, Eric Dubelier and Kate Seikaly, had made a slew of discovery requests demanding nonpublic details about the case and the investigation. Prosecutors also asked a judge to postpone the formal arraignment of Concord Management set for next week.

The prosecution team sought the delay on the grounds that it’s unclear whether Concord Management formally accepted the court summons related to the case. Mueller’s prosecutors also revealed that they tried to deliver the summonses for Concord and IRA through the Russian government, without success.

Corrupt Assistant Attorney General Rod Rosenstein announced on February 16, 2017, that his counterparts in the corrupt Mueller team had indicted 13 Russian individuals and three Russian companies for scheme to interfere in the US political system.

The Mueller team later released information on the companies and individuals indicted including information on the activities they participated in during the 2016 Presidential election. The Mueller team accused the Russians of “supporting the presidential campaign of then-candidate Donald J. Trump … and disparaging Hillary Clinton.”

But this was another far left liberal lie. TGP reported that of the events promoted by these Russians, a total of 31 people attended the Trump rallies while the Hillary rallies promoted by these Russians brought in 10,100 people including big leftist Michael Moore.

Last week it was time for the accused Russians to call the Mueller team on its bluff. One Twitter account reported the facts related to the Concord Management case. Techno Frog noted that the federal judge denied Mueller’s request to delay the upcoming arraignment.

Next Techno Frog tweeted that the defendants of Concord demanded information from the Special Counsel –

Techno called then noted that Mueller’s team responded in a manner that did not comply with a legal statute –

Next the Special Counsel asked the court is Concord was properly served.

Next Techno Frog notes that the attorney on Mueller’s team, Jeannie Rhee, represented the Clinton Foundation in prior litigation –

Techno Frog then noted that Concord’s legal team is not afraid to fire shots at the Mueller team –

The Concord team noted to the court that the Special Counsel ignored Concord’s previous emails –

Finally, Techno Frog notes that the Concord team has asked for discovery and documents from the Special Counsel and has not even replied let alone provide the data requested –

Techno Frog and all Americans want the Special Counsel to be held to the standards that all attorneys should be held to in the least.

The team Mueller created is so corrupt due to even accepting jobs with Mueller with their many conflicts of interest. They provided data to support their Russia political scandal that does not hold water. Let’s hope the judge sees the same data and results that TGP figured out months ago.
