Fair-Minded Investigation or Partisan Witch Hunt? (Good Read)
NRO ^ | 8/24/2018 | Cleta Mitchell

...And now that we have the precedent in the Cohen case for federal intrusion into the heretofore sacrosanct attorney–client privilege, we are waiting for Mueller to swoop into the Perkins Coie law firm and seize the records of the Clinton/DNC attorney, Marc Elias. The firm was paid $9 million during the 2016 election by the DNC and the Clinton campaign, and the payments to Fusion GPS flowed through Elias and were falsely reported to the FEC as “legal fees.” We are waiting for Mueller to confiscate the Elias records just as he did Michael Cohen’s, so there can be a thorough federal investigation into the role Elias and his firm played in the dossier scandal. And once he gets into those records and files, who knows what other offenses might be uncovered? What’s good for the Michael Cohen goose surely is just as good for the Marc Elias gander.


The point here is that if Mueller is interested in unreported and excessive contributions to a 2016 presidential campaign, he can certainly accomplish that objective on a much grander scale in both the amounts involved and the scope of the conspiracy by turning his attention to the $84 million that flowed through the DNC in their massive scheme to completely evade the legal contribution limits to the Clinton campaign. Their misconduct is laid out quite specifically in a federal civil suit filed in May 2018 (Committee to Defend the President v. Federal Election Commission), making Mueller’s job fairly straightforward.

Not ONE Rat attorney or hack has been so much as questioned by the “impartial” special counsel as demanded by the enabling legislation.

Not one.

Repeal the “Special Counsel” law. We don’t need a Grand Inquisitor going on political witch hunts, fabricating crimes (’it was an in kind political contribution when he bought his kid a car’).

And most of all, prosecute Mueller and his Clinton Gang operation because they are UNDOUBTEDLY coordinating ALL of this with the Clintons. Lanny Davis doesn’t end up being Mike Cohen’s handler by accident.

The government has become a cancer on the people.

It provides the funds for literally millions of government "workers" who will not stand for having all their carefully-crafted schemes and money-grabs upset by an interloper.

If, instead of Trump, we had nominated and elected a cross between Geo. Washington, Gandhi, Einstein and Mother Teresa the left would still be attempting a coup.

The Sixteenth Amendment provides the life blood for our political, and probably fatal, cancer.

Prepare for the inevitable collapse.

“...we are waiting for Mueller to swoop into the Perkins Coie law firm and seize the records of the Clinton/DNC attorney, Marc Elias.”

Don’t hold your breath: Mueller’s phony baloney has been an anti-Trump witch hunt from the get-go.

Hillary could be chopping up puppies, taking bribes, and robbing widows and orphans, and neither Mueller nor anyone else would bat an eyelid.

There is such a thing as prosecutorial malfeasance. Not litigated much, but maybe a weapon against this abuse of power and the justice system.

This appeared this past Friday on the website.
A MUST READ.... its informational worth is far beyond the 5 minutes it takes.

Connnecting some dots
I am passing this on from someone who's connecting some dots with input from sources he cannot reveal.
Here's what it looks like when all the pieces are sewn together
It smells like conspiracy and treason. Everyone needs to read this. Slowly, and patiently, because it's very important.....
From 2001 to 2005 there was an ongoing investigation into the Clinton Foundation.
A Grand Jury had been impanelled.
Governments from around the world had donated to the "Charity".
Yet, from 2001 to 2003 none of those "Donations" to the Clinton Foundation were declared. Now you would think that an honest investigator would be able to figure this out.
Look who took over this investigation in 2005: None other than James Comey; Coincidence? Guess who was transferred into the Internal Revenue Service to run the Tax Exemption Branch of the IRS? None other than, Lois "Be on The Look Out" (BOLO) Lerner. Isn't that interesting?
But this is all just a series of strange coincidences, right?
Guess who ran the Tax Division inside the Department of Injustice from 2001 to 2005?
No other than the Assistant Attorney General of the United States,
Rod Rosenstein.
Guess who was the Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation during this time frame?
Another coincidence (just an anomaly in statistics and chances), but it was Robert Mueller.
What do all four casting characters have in common?
They all were briefed and/or were front-line investigators into the Clinton Foundation Investigation.
Another coincidence, right?
Fast forward to 2009?.
James Comey leaves the Justice Department to go and cash-in at Lockheed Martin.
Hillary Clinton is running the State Department, official government business, on her own personal email server.
The Uranium One "issue" comes to the attention of the Hillary.
Like all good public servants do, supposedly looking out for America's best interest, she decides to support the decision and approve the sale of 20% of US Uranium to no other than, the Russians.
Now you would think that this is a fairly straight up deal, except it wasn't, America got absolutely nothing out of it.
However, prior to the sales approval, no other than Bill Clinton goes to Moscow, gets paid 500K for a one hour speech; then meets with Vladimir Putin at his home for a few hours.
Ok, no big deal right? Well, not so fast, the FBI had a mole inside the money laundering and bribery scheme.
Robert Mueller was the FBI Director during this time frame... Yep, He even delivered a Uranium Sample to Moscow in 2009.
Who was handling that case within the Justice Department out of the US Attorney's Office in Maryland?
None other than, Rod Rosenstein. And what happened to the informant?
The Department of Justice placed a GAG order on him and threatened to lock him up if he spoke out about it.
How does 20% of the most strategic asset of the United States of America end up in Russian hands when the FBI has an informant, a mole providing inside information to the FBI on the criminal enterprise?
Very soon after; the sale was approved --145 million dollars in "donations" made their way into the Clinton Foundation from entities directly connected to the Uranium One deal.
Guess who was still at the Internal Revenue Service working the Charitable Division? None other than, -- Lois Lerner.
Ok, that's all just another series of coincidences, nothing to see here, right?
Let's fast forward to 2015.
Due to a series of tragic events in Benghazi and after the 9 "investigations" the House, Senate and at State Department, Trey Gowdy who was running the 10th investigation as Chairman of the Select Committee on Benghazi discovers that the Hillary ran the State Department on an unclassified, unauthorized, outlaw personal email server.He also discovered that none of those emails had been turned over when she departed her "Public Service" as Secretary of State which was required by law. He also discovered that there was Top Secret information contained within her personally archived email.
Sparing you the State Departments cover up, the nostrums they floated, the delay tactics that were employed and the outright lies that were spewed forth from the necks of the Kerry State Department, we shall leave it with this..... they did everything humanly possible to cover for Hillary. .
Now this is amazing, guess who became FBI Director in 2013? None other than James Comey; who secured 17 no bid contracts for his employer (Lockheed Martin) with the State Department and was rewarded with a six million dollar thank you present when he departed his employer. Amazing how all those no-bids just went right through at State, huh?
Now he is the FBI Director in charge of the "Clinton Email Investigation" after of course his FBI Investigates the Lois Lerner "Matter" at the Internal Revenue Service and he exonerates her. Nope..... couldn't find any crimes there.
In April 2016, James Comey drafts an exoneration letter of Hillary Rodham Clinton, meanwhile the DOJ is handing out immunity deals like candy. They didn't even convene a Grand Jury!
Like a lightning bolt of statistical impossibility, like a miracle from God himself, like the true "Gangsta" Comey is, James steps out into the cameras of an awaiting press conference on July the 8th of 2016, and exonerates the Hillary from any wrongdoing.
Do you see the pattern?
It goes on and on, Rosenstein becomes Asst. Attorney General,Comey gets fired based upon a letter by Rosenstein, Comey leaks government information to the press, Mueller is assigned to the Russian Investigation sham by Rosenstein to provide cover for decades of malfeasance within the FBI and DOJ and the story continues.
FISA Abuse, political espionage...... pick a crime, any crime, chances are?? this group and a few others did it:
All the same players.
All compromised and conflicted.
All working fervently to NOT go to jail themselves
All connected in one way or another to the Clinton's.
They are like battery acid; they corrode and corrupt everything they touch. How many lives have these two destroyed?
As of this writing, the Clinton Foundation, in its 20+ years of operation of being the largest International Charity Fraud in the history of mankind, has never been audited by the Internal Revenue Service.
Let us not forget that Comey's brother works for DLA Piper, the law firm that does the Clinton Foundation's taxes.
The person that is the common denominator to all the crimes above and still doing her evil escape legal maneuvers at the top of the 3 Letter USA Agencies.... Yep, that would be Hillary R. Clinton.
Now who is LISA BARSOOMIAN? Let's learn a little about Mrs. Lisa H. Barsoomian's background.
Lisa H. Barsoomian, an Attorney that graduated from Georgetown Law, is a protege of James Comey and Robert Mueller.
Barsoomian, with her boss R. Craig Lawrence, represented Bill Clinton in 1998.
Lawrence also represented:
Robert Mueller three times;
James Comey five times;
Barack Obama 45 times;
Kathleen Sebelius 56 times;
Bill Clinton 40 times; and
Hillary Clinton 17 times.
Between 1998 and 2017, Barsoomian herself represented the FBI at least five times.
You may be saying to yourself, OK, who cares? Who cares about the work history of this Barsoomian woman?
Apparently, someone does, because someone out there cares so much that they've "purged" all Barsoomian court documents for her Clinton representation in Hamburg vs. Clinton in 1998 and its appeal in 1999 from the DC District and Appeals Court dockets.
Someone out there cares so much that even the internet has been "purged" of all information pertaining to Barsoomian.
Historically, this indicates that the individual is a protected CIA operative. Additionally, Lisa Barsoomian has specialized in opposing Freedom of Information Act requests on behalf of the intelligence community. Although Barsoomian has been involved in hundreds of cases representing the DC Office of the US Attorney, her email address is Lisa Barsoomian at The NIH stands for National Institutes of Health. This is a tactic routinely used by the CIA to protect an operative by using another government organization to shield their activities.
It's a cover, so big deal right? What does one more attorney with ties to the US intelligence community really matter?
It deals with Trump and his recent tariffs on Chinese steel and aluminum imports, the border wall, DACA, everything coming out of California, the Uni-party unrelenting opposition to President Trump, the Clapper leaks, the Comey leaks, Attorney General Jeff Sessions recusal and subsequent 14 month nap with occasional forays into the marijuana legalization mix.... and last but not least Mueller's never-ending investigation into collusion between the Trump team and-the Russians.
Why does Barsoomian, CIA operative, merit any mention?
She is Assistant Attorney General Rod Rosenstein's WIFE!

She did all those things plus compromising national security and leaving a trail of murdered "people who knew too much." But that's not important is it?

Yeah, yeah, yeah, the Mueller probe is a partisan witch hunt. Hillary and everyone associated with her get passes, while the full weight of the federal government is brought down on Trump and anyone connected to him. Them’s the rules in America 2018.

The real problem is that there are no intellectual conservatives who can go on left-wing TV channels and offer a rational alternative theory or counter argument against the ongoing DNC/MM talking point that DJT is an unindicted co-conspirator. Has anyone with credibility attempted that?

What is the statute of limitations on campaign violations arising out of the 2016 election? An important question, as when Sessions is fired, AND IF THE REPS HAVE A MAJORITY IN THE SENATE, when a new AG will be appointed who will initiate these investigations. Sessions recused himself, and neither Mueller or Rosenstein will.

As long as the state has not passed, full criminal investigations can go forward.

RE: the article

so what?

The Deep State protects its own.

As the OP suggested, there is no uniform application or Justice. The basics of course the illegal wiretapping and spring on Trump have been known for more than a year.

They have an unbounded prosecution led by a mad dog prosecutor, we've got writers at the National Review and Conservative Treehouse.

We are clearly trending towards Trump impeachment.

He is recusing himself again. He does not want the DOJ to be political and he is a politician.
