    One of special counsel Robert Mueller's top prosecutors is offering advice to House Democrats for their impeachment proceedings against President Trump. Andrew Weissmann, a former Justice Department official who was known as Mueller's "pitbull" during the Russia investigation, made his debut Wednesday as an NBC News legal analyst. He explained how the House Democrats faltered in their first day of public hearings and should refocus their proceedings from Ukraine to United States election interference if they want to make an effective case against Trump. "The key thing that the Democrats have to think about is, where are you going to...
  • Sidney Powell Knows What She’s Doing

    Lt. General Michael Flynn’s defense team, led by powerhouse lawyer Sidney Powell, made a stunning filing in his case on October 24th. In that filing, Powell makes some very serious claims against the government’s prosecutors. She charges them with not only withholding exculpatory evidence, but with aiding and abetting the alteration of official government documents – called 302 forms. The Ghost Of Andrew Weissmann Although the name Brandon Van Grack is the one that appears in all of these Flynn filings as counsel for the government, the person Sidney Powell is actually locked into legal warfare with here is Andrew...

    Special Counsel Robert Mueller had a bad day last week. The build-up to his congressional testimony rivaled that of Geraldo Rivera opening Al Capone’s vault. Endless fanfare and hype, but both Mueller and the vault were empty, devoid of treasure, or any smoking gun. At one level, Mueller is a sad figure, a doddering old man, looking foolish on an international stage, after being praised for two years for his legal acumen and integrity. Was his performance genuine or contrived? Was he trying to salvage his reputation as a card-carrying deep-state elitist by playing a sympathetic old man being badgered...
  • How Mueller’s Lawyers Spun the OLC Guidance on Indicting a Sitting President

    This is Part Two of a two-part series. In Part One, we took a look at the OLC guidance that bars the indictment of a sitting president. (The OLC is the Justice Department’s Office of Legal Counsel.) In particular, we looked at (a) how, in investigating President Trump for purported obstruction, special counsel Robert Mueller’s staff distorted the guidance into a prohibition against even considering whether an offense occurred; and (b) the futile hope of congressional Democrats, during Wednesday’s hearings, that Mueller would contradict his final report on this point. In Part Two, we explore why Mueller’s staff of very...

    Anyone who watched more than a few minutes of Wednesday’s painful hearings with former Special Counsel Robert Mueller discovered a sad truth the Democrats and many in the media continue to hide: Mueller neither wrote his report nor did he master the content of it. Repeatedly during the day, the former FBI director stumbled over what we had been told were his findings. He slowly leafed through a binder, searching for passages that lawmakers were quoting to him, only to say “okay” or “true” when he finally found them. In the morning’s hearing at the House Judiciary committee, Rep. Doug...

    Representative John Ratcliffe questions how Robert Mueller presented an investigative finding with no evidence of guilt, yet simultaneously states the investigation “would not exonerate” the President.  Ratcliffe crushed the construct of Mueller and left the biased special counsel speechless and jaw-agape.  WATCH: “Donald Trump is not above the law, but he damned sure also shouldn’t be below the law”…

    Conservative Tree House ^ | July 23, 2019 | Sunance
    The schemes of Nancy Pelosi, Adam Schiff and Jerry Nadler are predictable. As we said three months ago, Robert Mueller would not be allowed to testify without a handler. Small group participant Aaron Zebly will now join Mueller for his testimony. This has always been the plan, but strategically announced today. Remember, Mueller’s team is working closely with Nadler’s team; they are part of the same purpose. They are all part of the same network. The impeachment objective is a group effort from inside government & outside (Lawfare). These are not separate groups. The pre-planning was why Chairman Nadler hired...
  • Revealed: Mueller deputy Weissmann’s offer to Ukrainian oligarch to drop prosecution in exchange

    It’s an open secret that Robert Mueller was a figurehead in the special counsel probe aimed at unseating President Trump, and that the actual operational boss of the team of Trump-haters was Andrew Weissmann. Former US Attorney Joe DiGenova goes so far as to call the Mueller Report the “Weissmann Report.” The offer was declined, and the oligarch’s attorneys state that this is because there was nothing to offer. But what makes the situation scandalous is that an Austrian court – where the oligarch fled --  has received documents on the offer that have led it to halt extradition...

    Andrew Weissmann, who served as one of Robert Mueller’s top deputies on the Russia probe, offered a Ukrainian oligarch a sweetheart deal in 2017 in exchange for information on President Donald Trump, according to a new report. In July 2017, Weissmann, who has been labeled Mueller’s “pit bull” because of his aggressive prosecutorial style, met with attorneys representing Dmitry Firtash, an energy magnate who was indicted on bribery charges in 2014, reports The Hill. The story cites sources familiar with Weissmann’s offer and defense memos written in meetings with the prosecutor. One of the defense memos said that Weissmann claimed...

    The ink was still drying on special counsel Robert Mueller’s appointment papers when his chief deputy, the famously aggressive and occasionally controversial prosecutor Andrew Weissmann, made a bold but secret overture in early June 2017. Weissmann quietly reached out to the American lawyers for Ukrainian oligarch Dmitry Firtash with a tempting offer: Give us some dirt on Donald Trump in the Russia case, and Team Mueller might make his 2014 U.S. criminal charges go away. The specifics of the never-before-reported offer were confirmed to me by multiple sources with direct knowledge, as well as in contemporaneous defense memos I read....

    Far from damaging Trump, Andrew Weissmann’s closed-door testimony—if handled properly—will help unravel the Russia-collusion witch hunt and inflict damage on Democrats. Soon after the House Judiciary and Intelligence Committees announced that Robert Mueller had agreed to testify on July 17, 2019, news broke that following the public questioning of the former special counsel, committee members would quiz Mueller’s staff in private. “There’s time also allotted for executive session after Mueller testifies,” House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff told CNN, “that will be with his staff.”Some on the right have suggested that this closed-door session will inflict more harm on the...

    Andrew Weissmann, a top prosecutor in special counsel Robert Mueller's Russia investigation, has signed a book deal with publishing giant Random House, according to The New York Times and CNN. The reports of Weissmann's book deal come more than two months after the redacted version of the Mueller report was made available to the public in April. With the deal, Weissmann would be the first special counsel team member to provide a behind-the-scenes account of the nearly two-year investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election.

    Because the obscene amount of money Weissmann made (on taxpayer dime) on a fraudulent and criminal investigation wasn’t enough — now he’s going to sling books based on lies. According to a report out by The New York Times, Weissmann is the first special counsel prosecutor to land a book deal. According to the Times, Weissmann’s book has been acquired by Random House publisher. Liars Robert Mueller and his hitman Andrew Weissmann targeted General Mike Flynn and Paul Manafort for ruin — by any means necessary. A few weeks ago, Deep State federal prosecutors released the full transcript from President...

    The DOJ has released the FBI agent report (FD-302) written after their interview of Michael Flynn on Jan 24th, 2017. (Full pdf below) From prior testimony we know that FBI Agent Peter Strzok did the questioning and FBI Agent Joe Pientka took notes. However, for some reason, within the DOJ release of the report they are continuing to redact the name Joe Pientka. [Could be due to ongoing employment] It’s worth noting according to Mark Meadows the Office of Inspector General Michael Horowitz has interviewed Joe Pientka extensively; prior attempts by congress to gain testimony from Pientka were blocked by...

    The public knows that the FBI relied extensively on the Democratic Party-financed dossier, whose list of anti-Trump allegations influenced the bureau’s overall attitude toward the candidate and eventual president. Now, Attorney General William Barr has made it clear he wants to know more: Just how far did the discredited dossier take the FBI into the depths of a nearly three-year Trump investigation? “What were the standards that were applied? What was the evidence?” Mr. Barr told CBS News, adding that his focus is not on the rank-and-file but on senior FBI leaders. Dossier writer Christopher Steele, a former British intelligence...

    Anyone who still believes that former special counsel Robert Mueller is a stand-up, honest guy who truly wanted justice to prevail in his BS “investigation” of POTUS Donald Trump and “Russian collusion” will have to explain why we keep finding stellar examples of his rank anti-Trump partisanship. Like, for instance, the fact that he and his team of Democrat-donating prosecutors led by that hack, Andrew Weissman, have altered source information used in the probe to make the president and his team appear guilty. Should James Comey Be Arrested For Spying On Trump? House Intelligence Committee Ranking Member Devin Nunes, who...
