  • DOJ asks Supreme Court to block Democrats' access to Mueller documents

    The Department of Justice (DOJ) on Monday asked the Supreme Court to overturn a lower court decision granting House Democrats access to redacted grand jury materials from former special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia probe. The Monday filing serves as the Trump administration’s formal appeal of a March order to hand over secret transcripts and exhibits that Democratic leaders of the House Judiciary Committee initially sought as part of the impeachment inquiry into President Trump. The justices previously granted the administration’s request to halt the disclosure order, issued by a divided three-judge panel of the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals, from...

    With Attorney General William Barr now firmly in charge at the Justice Department, the steady unraveling of the coup plot against President Donald J. Trump by the Obama-Clinton junta raises the real possibility that a number of its culprits will face prosecution. The pushback from Democrats and their allies is the false claim that Attorney General Barr “interfered” in the sentencing recommendations of the “non-political career line prosecutors” in my case as well as recommending the dismissal of the thoroughly corrupted case against Gen. Michael Flynn. Now that I am ungagged, I can outline why this charge against the Attorney...

    Despite no evidence of an underlying crime, Mueller insisted that the president be interviewed by the special counsel. Dowd knew it was a trap. Mueller had done it to Flynn and others. He was clearly angling for obstruction of justice and hoping to ensnare the president in the equivalent of a perjury trap if he consented to be interviewed. But obstructing what? Mueller readily acknowledged that there was no underlying crime. Moreover, Trump had encouraged every witness connected to his campaign and the White House to testify. He voluntarily produced more than a million pages of documents. The special counsel’s...

    Former Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein is a master of prevarication and deflection. He holds an M.S. in BS and a Ph.D. in vacuous excuses. He’s a professor emeritus of duplicity and deception. As a prodigious suck-up, he’s the Eddie Haskell of lawyers. We can expect Rosenstein’s skill set to be on full display Wednesday when he finally and belatedly appears before the Senate Judiciary Committee as its first witness in an investigation into the origins and evolution of the fallacious Trump-Russia collusion probe. During his ignominious tenure at the Justice Department, Rosenstein was at the center of the Russia...

    Joe Biden's campaign canceled a fundraiser that it had scheduled with a top lawyer from special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election. Andrew Weissmann, a former Department of Justice lawyer who had the second-most senior position in the Mueller team, was scheduled to host a "fireside chat" for a June 2 event benefiting the former vice president and presumptive Democratic presidential nominee. But according to the Wall Street Journal, the event was canceled shortly after it was planned. After the planned event was revealed last week, President Trump's campaign went on the attack, arguing that...

    Kerri Kupec: So the DC Circuit has invited the Department of Justice to weigh in and we will do so. We will reiterate the arguments we made in our brief — which we believe this case should be dropped. Certainly as the prosecutors in this case as the Department of Justice we have the prosecutorial discretion to make that decision. And Sean, Jeff Jensen, he’s the US Attorney who the AG appointed to review the Flynn case, ten years a career prosecutor also spent ten years in the FBI. When he [Jeff Jensen] completed his review of the Flynn case,...

    Whitaker describes this as the “obstruction of justice trap.” Essentially, this approach confirms the second-prong purpose of the Mueller investigation itself. First, use the special counsel in 2017, 2018 and into the beginning of 2019, as a shield (hide information); and secondly a weapon (threats) against any entity who would reveal the background intelligence that undercut the Trump-Russia collusion narrative. We know President Trump was threatened by Rod Rosenstein not to declassify any information in September of 2018 or the Mueller investigation would use that act as evidence of obstruction. Whitaker confirms that same approach was applied toward any executive...

    WASHINGTON — When Aleksandr Zaporozhsky, one of four Russians delivered to the West in this week’s spy swap, joins his family in the United States, it will be only the latest unexpected twist in a classic story of espionage and deception. For several years in the 1990s, Mr. Zaporozhsky, a colonel in Russian intelligence who became deputy chief of the American Department, was secretly working for the C.I.A., one of the highest-ranking American moles in history, Russian prosecutors say. After surprising his colleagues by retiring suddenly in 1997, he moved with his wife and three children to the United States...

    For well over a year we’ve been saying AG Bill Barr’s biggest challenge is not investigating the soft-coup but rather managing through what We The People are already aware of. With that in mind; and with congress moving to put former DAG Rod Rosenstein and former Special Counsel Robert Mueller under a microscope; it is interesting to note AG Bill Barr recently conceding his two friends were corrupt.

    Republicans are broadening their investigation into special counsel Robert Mueller as the Obamagate controversy heats up. Rep. Devin Nunes, the ranking member on the House Intelligence Committee, said fresh criminal referrals are imminent as more people come forward with information about what Trump allies view to have been a plot to undermine the president. "We’ve also expanded our investigation into the Mueller team and everything that happened with Mueller and the people at DOJ and FBI that were above Mueller. And so, we will be making criminal referrals in the coming weeks against the Mueller team. We're just now putting...

    Former U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions fired back at President Donald Trump over the latest personal insult aimed at supporting his competitor in the Republican primary for a U.S. Senate seat. The president endorsed former college football coach Tommy Tuberville over his old attorney general and has openly berated Sessions for recusing him in the Department of Justice investigation into Russian election interference. "3 years ago, after Jeff Sessions recused himself, the Fraudulent Mueller Scam began. Alabama, do not trust Jeff Sessions. He let our Country down. That's why I endorsed Coach Tommy Tuberville (@TTuberville), the true supporter of our...

    Donald Trump Jr. on Thursday blasted the media for its lack of response to the announcement that Robert Mueller's former prosecutor Andrew Weissmann will headline a virtual fundraiser for the Biden campaign. The campaign said publicly Wednesday that Weissmann will headline a “virtual fireside chat” moderated by Anne Milgram -- the former New Jersey attorney general -- on June 2. The chat will take place on Zoom, and “guests who RSVP by making a contribution... will be sent instructions for how to join via Zoom,” according to the invitation from the Biden “Victory Fund.”

    The Supreme Court on Wednesday denied a request from House Democrats for immediate access to redacted grand jury materials from former special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia probe. The justices instead granted the Trump administration's request to continue shielding the secret grand jury transcripts and exhibits. The Wednesday order also gives the Justice Department until June 1 to file a formal appeal of a lower court ruling requiring the administration to hand over the materials the Democratic-led House Judiciary Committee initially requested as part of the House impeachment inquiry into President Trump.

    Former FBI Assistant Deputy Director Terry Turchie said on “Fox & Friends” on Monday that he has noticed that the mainstream media used to denounce Federal Bureau of Investigation abuses — until the agency went after President Trump. “It’s something that's kind of surprising,” he said. Turchie made the comment reacting to The New York Post editorial, which noted that “Democrats and their puppets in the media – once fierce critics of US law enforcement and spying agencies – have suddenly become their biggest champions, at least when the issue is these agencies’ targeting of Team Trump.”

    **SNIP** Nearly two decades after 9/11, and seven years after Mueller left the FBI, the investigation code-named “Crossfire Hurricane” - the investigation of Donald Trump’s campaign and its supposed collusion with Russia - has exposed some flaws in Mueller’s dream of an intelligence-led FBI. When the FBI became intelligence-driven, it didn’t have to stop being fact-driven. Exhibit A is Christopher Steele, who was never a collector of facts - he was a former foreign intelligence officer, and there’s a huge difference: A spy’s singular mission is to break the laws of the countries to which they are assigned and get...

    With the nation in the middle of a horrendous pandemic, President Donald Trump has decided to devote much of his time fueling the "Obamagate" conspiracy. Trump went on a Twitter rampage this past week, sharing falsehoods and misleading claims that promote the conspiracy theory that former President Barack Obama led a supposed "coup" to sabotage his presidency. But when a Washington Post reporter pressed Trump earlier this week to explain what Obama did, the President failed to clarify and said, "You know what the crime is. The crime is obvious to everybody. All you have to do is read the...

    How does Watergate differ from Obamagate? Journalists led the charge to uncover the first. But now? Now journalists are leading the coverup of the second. J. Peder Zane has illustrated the media coverup exactly: “This week’s news that at least 39 Obama officials had unmasked Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn’s private conversations during the last month of their administration seemed a little shocking. Today, major media outlets are telling readers and viewers that the practice is “routine.” A CNN headline told readers, “Trump pushes 'Obamagate' conspiracy based on routine intel activity.” Obama’s Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, now a CNN...

    Rep. Devin Nunes, top Republican on the House Intelligence Committee, vowed to pursue multiple new criminal referrals amid ongoing revelations in the Justice Department's handling of the Russia probe. Nunes said, "We're looking at doing criminal referrals on the Mueller team, the Mueller dossier team, the Mueller witch hunt." Last year, Nunes sent eight criminal referrals to William Barr alleging "potential violations" of the law in the course the FBI’s investigation into Russian meddling and contacts with Trump advisers. In the wake of the Justice Department's dropping charges against Michael Flynn, Nunes is turning his attention to the conduct of...
