The Mueller Investigation

Received from a US correspondent – David, blogmaster

There are not too many individuals in the USA space who have commanded media attention to match President Donald Trump. One person that qualifies is Robert Mueller, special counsel to oversee the department’s investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 election.

  • The Trumpeteers on BU, people like Georgie Porgie, Freedom Fighter, John the Jonny et al, have for years, and not unlike Trump himself, argued wrongly that there was no conspiracy by the Trumpet and his inner circle. Certainly, the Mueller Report does NOT support that contention.

    Indeed, the Mueller Report was met with a spontaneous propaganda campaign for the effective exoneration of everything Trump. Most of these common idiots, supporting the Idiot-in-Chief, had not even read the report, as edited, nor the summary, as presented by Trump’s ‘criminal’ lawyer, the so-called attorney general, a post used to be for the defense of the public interests.

    The truth is that the Mueller Report, has never been as conclusive as the willing BU ‘idiotocracy’ would like us to believe. Also, we well know that the FBI, as both a police and intelligence outfit, can indict the proverbial ‘ham sandwich’. A Harvard professor has long determined that the average American could hardly navigate a day without contravening at least three (3) federal laws. Far less a man like Trump, who has always been a walking, talking violator of every law known to God or man.

    In the end, it does not matter whether he is impeached or not. Thanks to Trump, there has been an unmasking of the ‘ugly American’ for all the world to see. And those other idiots who are feckless enough to believe that some election, next time, could return this political toothpaste back into its tube are even worse than Georgie Porgie and his ilk.

    Thanks to Trump, the end of American imperium is here!

  • The full list of Mueller indictments and plea deals
    1) George Papadopoulos, former Trump campaign foreign policy adviser, was arrested in July 2017 and pleaded guilty in October 2017 to making false statements to the FBI. He got a 14-day sentence.

    2) Paul Manafort, Trump’s former campaign chair, was indicted on a total of 25 different counts by Mueller’s team, related mainly to his past work for Ukrainian politicians and his finances. He had two trials scheduled, and the first ended in a conviction on eight counts of financial crimes. To avert the second trial, Manafort struck a plea deal with Mueller in September 2018 (though Mueller’s team said in November that he breached that agreement by lying to them). He was sentenced to a combined seven and a half years in prison.

    3) Rick Gates, a former Trump campaign aide and Manafort’s longtime junior business partner, was indicted on similar charges to Manafort. But in February 2018 he agreed to a plea deal with Mueller’s team, pleading guilty to just one false statements charge and one conspiracy charge.

    4) Michael Flynn, Trump’s former national security adviser, pleaded guilty in December 2017 to making false statements to the FBI.

    5-20) 13 Russian nationals and three Russian companies were indicted on conspiracy charges, with some also being accused of identity theft. The charges related to a Russian propaganda effort designed to interfere with the 2016 campaign. The companies involved are the Internet Research Agency, often described as a “Russian troll farm,” and two other companies that helped finance it. The Russian nationals indicted include 12 of the agency’s employees and its alleged financier, Yevgeny Prigozhin.

    21) Richard Pinedo: This California man pleaded guilty to an identity theft charge in connection with the Russian indictments, and has agreed to cooperate with Mueller. He was sentenced to 6 months in prison and 6 months of home detention in October 2018.

    22) Alex van der Zwaan: This London lawyer pleaded guilty to making false statements to the FBI about his contacts with Rick Gates and another unnamed person based in Ukraine. He was sentenced to 30 days in jail and has completed his sentence.

    23) Konstantin Kilimnik: This longtime business associate of Manafort and Gates, who’s currently based in Russia, was charged alongside Manafort with attempting to obstruct justice by tampering with witnesses in Manafort’s pending case last year.

    24-35) 12 Russian GRU officers: These officers of Russia’s military intelligence service were charged with crimes related to the hacking and leaking of leading Democrats’ emails in 2016.

    36) Michael Cohen: In August 2018, Trump’s former lawyer pleaded guilty to 8 counts — tax and bank charges, related to his finances and taxi business, and campaign finance violations — related to hush money payments to women who alleged affairs with Donald Trump, as part of a separate investigation in New York (that Mueller had handed off). But in November, he made a plea deal with Mueller too, for lying to Congress about efforts to build a Trump Tower in Moscow.

    37) Roger Stone: In January 2019, Mueller indicted longtime Trump adviser Roger Stone on 7 counts. He accused Stone of lying to the House Intelligence Committee about his efforts to get in touch with WikiLeaks during the campaign, and tampering with a witness who could have debunked his story.

    Finally, there is one other person Mueller initially investigated, but handed over to others in the Justice Department to charge: Sam Patten. This Republican operative and lobbyist pleaded guilty to not registering as a foreign agent with his work for Ukrainian political bigwigs, and agreed to cooperate with the government.

    Yes, we all can agree on the fact that former presidents have made some dealings that weren’t in the best interest of America and the American people, and it is his duty as president to seek to address this, but his attempt to set the record straight does not negate his sexist, islamophobic, and racist rhetoric which ought to affront those who claims to represent the American values and ideals.

  • I have said on FB and here, the Mueller investigation came about because Trump is an outsider and wasn’t supposed to win. he won because Clinton was a poor candidate, who assumed that based on her antecedents she was bound to win. She took things for granted. There was never any collusion, even Noam Chomsky who is a known anti-Trump, has declared the collusion thing to be bs. As I have said, the obstruction thing cannot be proven.Alan Dershowitz from the outset said that the president cannot be cited for obstruction since he in charge of the DoJ. Dershowitz also predicted that Mueller would waffle around on the obstruction thing so as to give the Dems something to holler about. From the comments on this blog, one would get the impression that Mueller is squeaky clean. Do some investigations into Mueller’s time as the attorney general in Massachusetts and his dealings with the Whitey Bulger affair and the subsequent investigation at the federal level into his actions in the case. The whole thing centered around payments to a known murderer to act as an informer: Bulger took the money and warned his buddies where to rob and who to eliminate when the law was getting too close to his organization. As for citing Barr for obstruction, that too is bs. Nadler knows that. It makes good headlines. One does not need to like Trump; but one should always be dispassionate when dealing with one’s dislikes thereby precluding bias from clouding one ‘s analytical ability

  • FOIA Request Unearths the Truth About the FBI and the Steele Dossier

    New information has been found that shows the Steele Dossier was meant to hurt Trump and that the FBI knew it was a political document that had no merit. Yet they still went forward and used the document as evidence in order to spy on the president.

    “Officials at the FBI and (Department of Justice) DOJ were well aware the dossier was a lie — from very early on in the process all the way to when they made the conscious decision to include it in a FISA application,” Meadows said Tuesday”

    A new document has been uncovered through a FOIA request by Citizens United. The document gives Deputy Assistant Secretay of State, Katheleen Kavalec’s account on how things went with the Steele Dossier.

    “Deputy Assistant Secretary of State Kathleen Kavalec’s written account of her Oct. 11, 2016, meeting with FBI informant Christopher Steele shows the Hillary Clinton campaign-funded British intelligence operative admitted that his research was political and facing an Election Day deadline.

    And that confession occurred 10 days before the FBI used Steele’s now-discredited dossier to justify securing a Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) warrant to surveil former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page and the campaign’s ties to Russia.”

    “David Bossie, head of Citizens United and an informal Trump adviser, said the documents suggest there was an illegal effort to “frame” the future president with bogus Russia collusion allegations. “This new information proves why the attorney general must conduct a thorough investigation of the investigators,” he said.

    Sources tell me there also are handwritten notes from the meeting, with information about Steele’s political ties, that have not been given to Congress. “There’s a connection to Hillary Clinton in the notes,” said one source who has seen them.”

    This is why it is imperative that the AG’s Office continues to look into the spying that went on back in 2016 into the Trump campaign. This doesn’t look very by the book Comey. Who knows what else will come out. But we need to get it quick as it appears the FBI is covering their tracks.

  • Rep. Al Green Declares He Will Bring the President to Justice

    The Dems are riled up again, thinking they may have something on Trump with Nadler and Schiff making something out of nothing. Longtime Trump hater Rep Al Green made a statement at The House Of Representatives declaring that he does not care what tactics Trump’s uses to delay justice. Because he is willing to wait however long in order to take down Trump.

    His statement of intent:

    “Last night, at a rally in Florida, the president referred to me as “that man.” Mr. Speaker, I love my country, and still I rise. And I rise today to address the comment that the president made in referring to me as “that man.” Mr. Speaker, the video of what I said speaks for itself. The president indicates that I said, the only way to get him out of office is to impeach him.

    But the video speaks for itself. But I do want to share with the president that he is right, I am “that man.” I’m that man, a liberated Democrat, a liberated Democrat in the spirit of Shirley Chisholm. I’m unbought and unbossed. Mr. President, you finally encountered at least one person that your money can’t buy, and your power doesn’t scare. You have a date with destiny, Mr. President. Your fate is in the hands of 435 members of Congress. You are not above the law. No one is. Impeachment is in the hands of this Congress. That man, Mr. President, is a member of this Congress.

    Mr. President, I assure you that the long arm of the law is reaching out for you. In this country, we will not allow you, or any other person, to hold yourself out as being above the law. You have an appointment with history in this House of Representatives. If no one else will bring you to justice, I will, Mr. President.

    Lawsuits and delay tactics will not deter me. You will not engage in the paralysis of analysis, as Dr. King put it. You won’t engage in paralysis of analysis such we will put this off until the next election. Mr. President, your case will be brought before this House. It’s just a matter of time, Mr. President. It’s just a matter of time.”

    Rep. Al Green has done this once before. He is a lot like Maxine Waters where he runs his mouth about impeaching Trump but then nothing happens. If history tells us anything ut is that Green will likely do a whole lot of nothing.

    Mr Blogmaster, you are being a little misleading with the comment “.. The only reason Trump is standing is because there is great debate about indicting a sitting president…”

    Impeachment of a President is of course a monumental act so surely it must always be weighed carefully but practically (and this is NOT splitting hairs) the issue resonates on is there cause, or high crimes and misdemenours to start the process….there is no debate about indicting a President because that simply cannot be done under US law!

    But to the thrust of your comment, I don’t believe that valid grounds yet exist for impeachment!….Immorality, lying to the public (NOT under oath), crassness, firing senior officials by whim, using impolitic language nor any of the publicly known acts done thus far by POTUS reach the impeachment standard.

    As to whether this man will only be saved by the statute of limitations re some of those same acts (like tax issues or others noted in the Mueller report) when he reverts to citizen Trump is another mater completely!

    @Vincent, really now *petty USA”…seriously! US politics like that of Greece (debate of restructuring finances) or any other country is instructive to us for what we WANT to learn from it. If you look on the US scenario and only glimpse the pettiness then senor you are losing your (in)sight badly as you reach older years…you need to redouble your opthomologist’s visits!😁

    And @Lexicon…over 60 million people in US voted against a lying, conniving, bad tempered candidate to elect a pathologically lying, business conniving, bad tempered candidate…so do you really think this one man as president is espousing some singular vileness that “…is not good for America and the world for that matter …” NO.

    As noted above by others this man has simply put a bold, public face on the always present seamy side of US life.

    But despite that crass imprimatur its yet misplaced to believe that “… the end of American imperium is here!”… as echoed by @Pacha blogger …. replaced on the world stage by what … Russian hegemony , China imperialism . I think not…at least not if the dominant democracies have a say in the matter.

    Just recently there was a news item which noted that US Sec of State warned the UK that her support of any Huawei devices in the imminent 5G networks would mean the US would stop sharing secutity matters across and with the UK network….that’s a monumental threat on its face and in its “simple” way brings into stark force how the world stage is aligned …and no one President or PM regardless of their absurd actions can crash the US/Western power position that easily!

I do not see the connection between what Mueller was supposed to be investigating and these offenders. These offenders were caught up in an attempted coup to oust the duly elected leader of a country. Mueller could not prove collusion so he hoped that by threatening some of Trump’s associates evidence would appear that would be harmful to Trump. He learnt well from his time in Massachusetts with Whitey Bulger. Not one of the offenders on the list had anything to do with Russia. You have tax dodgers and so on; crimes that most Americans are guilty of. So do not imply( the list would indicate so) that only Trump’s associates contravene the laws. The Dems do the same.

    U.S. Seizes N. Korean Ship for Violating Sanctions
    2019-05-09 Source:

    The Trump administration has announced that they have seized a North Korean ship for violating the sanctions placed on the country.

    The name of this ship adds more allure to the story.

    According to NBC News:
    The U.S. has seized a North Korean freighter that was caught shipping coal in violation of U.N. sanctions, the Justice Department revealed Thursday.

    The 17,000-ton cargo ship, called the Wise Honest, was stopped in Indonesia last year after it was found to be carrying coal. The ship’s captain was charged with violating Indonesian law, and last July, the U.S. filed an action to seize the ship, according to court papers.

    Federal prosecutors said the seizure marks the first time the U.S. has taken possession of a North Korean ship for violating international sanctions.

    “This sanctions-busting ship is now out of service,” said John Demers, assistant attorney general for the Justice Department’s National Security Division.

    It is unclear if the ship name “Wise Honest” was in an attempt to make U.S. authorities think it was only doing good.

  • A newly-uncovered document suggests that the Obama Department of Justice (DOJ), including the FBI, was “well aware” that foreign agent Christopher Steele was trying to interfere in the 2016 presidential election with disinformation — and yet still used his materials to spy on American citizens and the Trump campaign, according to Rep. Mark Meadows (R-NC).

    “[O]fficials at the FBI and (Department of Justice) DOJ were well aware the dossier was a lie — from very early on in the process all the way to when they made the conscious decision to include it in a FISA application,” Meadows said Tuesday in a statement to The Hill’s John Solomon. “The fact that Christopher Steele and his partisan research document were treated in any way seriously by our Intelligence Community leaders amounts to malpractice.”

    Meadows’ statement came in response to a federal document recently unveiled by a Citizens United lawsuit — an email from Deputy Assistant Secretary of State Kathleen Kavalec, who met with Steele in October 2016 and recounted his desire to spread the lurid allegations of his since-debunked dossier on then-candidate Donald Trump. Solomon wrote on Tuesday:

    Kavalec’s written account of her Oct. 11, 2016, meeting with FBI informant Christopher Steele shows the Hillary Clinton campaign-funded British intelligence operative admitted that his research was political and facing an Election Day deadline.

    And that confession occurred 10 days before the FBI used Steele’s now-discredited dossier to justify securing a Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) warrant to surveil former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page and the campaign’s ties to Russia.

    Steele’s client “is keen to see this information come to light prior to November 8,” the date of the 2016 election, Kavalec wrote in a typed summary of her meeting with Steele and Tatyana Duran, a colleague from Steele’s Orbis Security firm. The memos were unearthed a few days ago through open-records litigation by the conservative group Citizens United. [emphasis added]

    Solomon followed up on that report Thursday with another detail from the document — which FBI Director Christopher Wray has redacted all but three sentences of until the end of 2041. He writes that her memo makes it clear Steele “was political, inaccurate, spinning wild theories, and talking to the media,” even getting basic facts wrong about Russia’s diplomatic presence in the U.S.:

    [T]he FBI swore on Oct. 21, 2016, to the FISA judges that Steele’s “reporting has been corroborated and used in criminal proceedings” and the FBI has determined him to be “reliable”… [Yet Kavalec] quoted Steele as saying, “Payments to those recruited are made out of the Russian Consulate in Miami,” according to a copy of her summary memo obtained under open records litigation by the conservative group Citizens United. Kavalec bluntly debunked that assertion in a bracketed comment: “It is important to note that there is no Russian consulate in Miami.”

    Kavalec alerted federal officials to these plans by Steele, a foreign national, to interfere with the presidential election, ten days before the FBI applied in a FISA court for a warrant to surveil the Trump campaign.

    Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) told Solomon that the DOJ hid Kavalec’s email from the House Intelligence Committee during its investigation of 2016 foreign election interference.

    This memo is the latest piece of evidence suggesting the FBI spied on American citizens for partisan political purposes.

    Bruce Ohr — a career DOJ official whose wife worked for Fusion GPS, the firm that hired Steele — has testified that he told the FBI Steele was politically biased against Trump and that his dossier was based on hearsay.

    Steele himself gave a statement to a London court saying that the purpose of his work, at least in part, was to give Hillary Clinton’s campaign and the Democratic National Committee (DNC) standing to “challenge the validity of the outcome of that election.”

    James, Comey, the FBI Director at the time, has admitted he knew Democrats were funding Steele and Fusion GPS’s work “before there were any court filings” — but withheld this information from the FISA application and from the intelligence briefing with president-elect Trump which gave CNN and BuzzFeed the “news hook” to publicly air the hoax allegations without any corroboration.

    Two senators have recommended Steele for a criminal investigation, alleging that he lied to the FBI, according to a 2018 Senate Judiciary Committee memo.

  • We are ready to make predictions about the American presidential elections of 2020!

    We are predicting a number of things, including that Trump will be president again, not that he will necessarily win, but president nonetheless.

    First, hithertofore unknown criminal acts will prevent the impeachment of Trump between now and 2020. In these, he will be ably assisted by the Christian/Zionist/dispensationalist/dominionists.

    Second, that even if he loses that election he will fail to concede. Such a failure, under the American system, makes it virtually impossible for the presumptive ‘winner’ to assume office. And if you think there is currently a constitutional crisis, wait for these events to unfold.

    These predictions are based on the central assumption that the American system has never had a seating president who would go to any and all lengths, further than Nixon, further than Bush2, include the use of nuclear weapons within a contrived war, to become an overnight war hero to the gullible American people, while at the same time avoiding the criminal fate which will certainly befall him when unclothed of his presidential armour.

    It has been shown beyond a shadow of a doubt that Trump senior was not aware of the meeting. Even if he had been, what would that prove? it is like the curtailing of migrants from certain Muslim countries. The liberals were all hollering that when he was trying to become president he talked about an out right ban on Muslims: therefore any executive order by trump dealing with non-entry of Muslims must be struck down. What was over looked was the fact, that what was said prior to becoming president had no bearing on what was actually requested after he became president. The outcome should have been based solely on what was written in the executive order not what was said prior. There is such a thing as changing one’s mind. I was amazed at how it was left to the supreme court to point out that little fact. All the noise is grandstanding by the Dems. In the case of Barr, it is known that it is against the law for Barr to reveal grand jury findings and intelligence work. Barr is right not to take on Nadler ( since when is the top legal officer subjected to being cross examined by his underlings about the findings of Mueller.?).How are you going to prove intent when no crime was committed ?Are you going to jail some one because he intended to rob a bank ,but changed his mind instead?.

    Dr. Lucas…help me out here with some of your “.. dispassion [and] precluding bias from clouding one ‘s analytical ability”. First, I agree completely that disliking a person should never cloud the judgement process as neither shoukd liking him/her…

    So tell me why and how could “the Mueller investigation came about because Trump is an outsider and wasn’t supposed to win. he won because Clinton was a poor candidate”….What’s the dispassionate analysis for that astonishing remark?

    Further, why does Mueller need to be squeaky clean to properly investigate anyone? What does his tenure with Whitey Bulger have to do with this?….Are you suggesting that working with a known killer is so vile that he has no moral standing to make the case for this investigation?

    Why, and on what basis? Are you saying Mueller broke the law during Bulger’s undercover career?

    You surely are aware Guiliani prosecuted many a Mafia Don in his days as a US Attorney using very SIMILAR tactics of undercover killers as informants!

    And of course there is no collusion/conspiracy. That has been overblown on one hand from day one in my view but in other instances it has been proven valid…and even Prof Dershowitz accepts that too. He stated that Mueller ‘s “mandate was to uncover crimes committed by the Trump campaign [it’s accolytes] with regard to Russia’s attempts to influence the election.” The report answers that thoroughly.

    On the obstruction matter…you quoted the Prof…but there are several other dispassionate highly esteemed players in the US legal fraternity who hold opposing views on that….yes the Dems got something to holler about… a valid, meaningful, legally persuasive something!

    From this layman’s perspective its misleading to claim presidential innocence based purely on the assertion that because a President is in charge of the DoJ that he can’t obstruct justice … because in short it says that a President is above the law, so to speak, as it relates to doing as he pleases with law enforcement measures. …. Factually, of course he is NOT above the law.

    Absolutely a President can find tremendous latitude in carrying out actions for which he has absolute constitutional powers but as seen with Pres Nixon if those actions are associated with matters over which he has no constitutional latitude (perjury, directing lying of other under oath,evidence destruction etc) he can be removed under impeachment.

    And to quote Goldsmith another Harvard Law prof : “…Trump did some very bad (not to mention stupid) things in response to press reports about his and his team’s involvement in the Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election, and to the unfolding investigation of that interference.. In combination with Trump’s other abuses of power over the past two and a half years, I have little trouble concluding that Trump committed impeachable offenses, should Congress want to pursue that option.”

    So back to what in the name of logical progression does an unrelated matter of yesteryear specifically have to do with the legitimacy of a matter today!

  • New York Rep. Jerry Nadler, the man at the helm of the cabal that is attacking President Donald Trump, has a major issue on his hands.

    It has been discovered that his son, Michael Nadler, works for Gibson Dunn & Crutcher LLP, a New York based law firm.

    What is significant about this job is that that office has repeatedly sued President Trump, including on behalf of CNN reporter Jim Acosta.

    “Congressman Jerry Nadler has a big conflict,” our source tells Big League Politics in Washington, D.C.

    “His son (Michael Nadler) got a job with Gibson Dunn & Crutcher LLP in 2018. That’s convenient because Jerry Nadler and the Democrats just won control of the House in 2018.

    Gibson Dunn & Crutcher hire Jerry’s son and Gibson Dunn & Crutcher are the main Nemesis against Trump and the Trump Administration on numerous lawsuits.

    Now the Nadler family will gain access to thousands of Trump documents via Jerry’s subpoenas!,”

    Such an arrangement — Jerry Nadler investigating Trump with his son’s firm trying to get access to documents in other cases — violates ethics rules for federal investigators.

    ““the Mueller investigation came about because Trump is an outsider and wasn’t supposed to win. he won because Clinton was a poor candidate”
    You claim that the above remark is astonishing. On the contrary there is nothing astonishing about the remark.. Cast your mind back to the FBI agents who were fired. The Email exchange between Paige and her lover even before Trump was sworn in as president. The leaking of the Steele Dossier which sought to depict Trump getting a golden shower from some call girls in a Russian hotel and which formed in part one aspect of a move to investigate Trump. The dossier was known about even before Trump was elected. The Dossier was subsequently shown to be without credit.. After he was sworn in ,there were Dems who made it their intent to impeach Trump ( Al Green): the man wasn’t even in office two weeks before there was talk about impeaching him. I don’t need to say more on this point.
    I said the following: “From the comments on this blog, one would get the impression that Mueller is squeaky clean”
    The context in which the statement was made is important. I acknowledge that being not squeaky clean does not impede the effectiveness of someone. In the media, Mueller is portrayed as impeccable in his actions,more ethical then Jesus Christ if one actually wants to really believe that. My statement sought to disabuse. that sentiment.
    “Why, and on what basis? Are you saying Mueller broke the law during Bulger’s undercover career?”
    What went down was as follows: Bulger was recruited despite being known as a killer. He was paid by the FBI. He used his position with FBI to get his competitors in crime jailed. He succeeded in turning a FBI agent and continued his killing ways. Mueller was in charge of the law forces at the time and one can say he did not know what was going on if one wants to. The US deputy attorney general who just resigned was also part of the team with Mueller.. Mueller came out of the whole fiasco intact as was the deputy attorney general you can conclude whatever you want to.
    “.yes the Dems got something to holler about… a valid, meaningful, legally persuasive something”
    I beg to differ with you on this point. First off let’s take Comey. He claims that he had never met Trump before, but concluded that he was a liar, therefore after meeting the president he hasten to write down what trump had said. This is man who was fired by Trump( I must admit it was done beautifully by Trump. The political insiders never saw that one coming and it pissed them off). The fact remains Trump has the constitutional authority to fire Comey. He can give a thousand different reasons or he can give none. Nothing can be done about it. He can say “I am going to fire x: be advised that he shouldn’t do so but keeps insisting he wants X fired. But he does nothing about firing X (Mueller);although he has the constitutional authority to do so. He hasn’t got to get some one to fire X. The point remains he never acted or carried through with the proposed action. As far as I know, one can broach one’s intentions with one’s advisors(test the waters so to speak to see what feed back one gets).No action was carried forward. How could Mueller determine Trump’s mindset( he wanted to talk to Trump see how he was thinking when he fired Comey) Is Mueller a shrink? How are you going to charge a man on intent when he did not carried out the activity? trump listened to advisors and did not act.

    The Trump administration on Friday moved forward with a proposed rule to make it harder for illegal immigrants to access federally subsidized housing — the latest crackdown by the administration on immigrants who use public assistance.

    The rule, proposed by the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) and posted in the Federal Register, would require that those seeking public housing would be subject to verification of their immigration status. Only families in which every member is either a citizen or a legal resident would qualify for federally subsidized housing. Currently families where at least one person is either a citizen or green card holder can get federal assistance, even if other family members are not.

    The administration says that regulations “presently excuse individuals from submitting documentation if they do not contend to having eligible immigration status. This results in no actual determination of immigration status being made.” The rule would also require current participants who have not previously proven their eligibility to do so at their next evaluation of their need for public assistance.

    An agency analysis, reported by The Washington Post, found that approximately 25,000 households, representing about 108,000 people, now live in subsidized housing with at least one person who would be ineligible.

    Among those “mixed-status” households, 70 percent are legally eligible for benefits — approximately 76,000 people including 55,000 children. The majority live in California, Texas and New York, the Post reported.

    “HUD expects that fear of the family being separated would lead to prompt evacuation by most mixed households,” the agency’s analysis said. “Temporary homelessness could arise for a household, if they are unable to find alternative housing.”

    HUD Secretary Ben Carson defended the proposal this week, telling Fox Business’ Stuart Varney that illegal immigrants are limiting assistance that could go to “legitimate American citizens.”

    “We have a long list of people we can only serve right now one in four of the people who are looking for assistance from the government,” he said. “So obviously we want to get those people taken care of. And we also want to abide by the laws.”

    An administration official told The Daily Caller, which first reported the proposal last month, that “we need to take care of our citizens.”

    “Because of past loopholes in HUD guidance, illegal aliens were able to live in free public housing desperately needed by so many of our own citizens. As illegal aliens attempt to swarm our borders, we’re sending the message that you can’t live off of American welfare on the taxpayers’ dime,” the official said.

    However, the HUD analysis reportedly found that that the rule could cost up to an additional $227 million a year because mixed-status families would then receive higher subsidies.

    ICE creates ‘most wanted’ list to help track down criminal illegal immigrants
    The proposal is likely to face fierce opposition from Democrats. On Friday, 13 Democratic members of Congress from New York said in a letter to Carson that it would “needlessly inflict hardship” on families.

    “Your approach represents a major shift from current HUD policy and by design makes it more difficult for families to have access to assistance for which they would otherwise be eligible,” the letter says.

    It is the latest proposed crackdown by the administration on the use of public assistance by immigrants. Reuters reported last week that the administration is considering making it easier to deport legal permanent residents who have used public benefits.

    A draft regulation, which is still subject to change, would reportedly allow for the deportation of some permanent residents who have used certain public benefits within five years of admission into the U.S. Those benefits include Supplemental Security Income (SSI), the Supplemental Nutritional Assistance Program (SNAP), Section 8 housing vouchers, certain Medicaid benefits; and Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF).

    On Friday, Acting Defense Secretary Patrick Shanahan confirmed that the Pentagon has authorized an additional $1.5 billion to extend the wall along the U.S.-Mexico border 80 more miles.

    Shanahan stated, according to Stars and Stripes: “The Department of Defense is fully engaged in addressing the crisis on our southwest border, with more than 4,000 servicemembers and 19 aircraft currently supporting the Department of Homeland Security. Today, I authorized the transfer of $1.5 billion toward the construction of more than 80 miles of border barrier. The funds were drawn from a variety of sources, including cost savings, programmatic changes, and revised requirements, and therefore will have minimal impact on force readiness.”

    The additional $1.5 billion comes after the transfer of $1 billion for an additional 60 miles of wall in Yuma, Arizona and El Paso, Texas, that was made in March.

    Fox News reports, “But the plan to divert Pentagon funding has sparked criticism from congressional Democrats, who accused Shanahan of not seeking approval to ‘reprogram’ the funds without congressional authority. Shanahan and other senior defense officials claimed in response they did not have to get permission from Congress despite the objections from Democratic lawmakers.”

    The funds being transferred come from the Afghan Security Forces Fund, which describes itself as providing “assistance to the security forces of Afghanistan to include the provision of equipment, supplies, services, training, facility and infrastructure repair, renovation and construction, and funding.”

    AP reported in late February that Shanahan visited the southern border and asserted, “How do we get out of treating the symptoms and get at the root of the issue? I don’t want to just add resources and not fix the problem.” AP wrote, “Shanahan said he was not volunteering the Pentagon to take over any part of border control, which is the responsibility of the Department of Homeland Security. But he said his visit led him to question whether there should be a ‘wholesale redesign’ of the way border control is done by the federal government.”

    The Hill reported on Friday that Democrats would fight against transferring money for the wall:

    The House Appropriations Committee on Thursday advanced a bill that would prohibit using military construction funds on a border wall. The prohibition, included in the fiscal 2020 military construction and veterans affairs appropriations bill, would prohibit funds from the 2015 through 2020 fiscal years from being “obligated, expended or used to design, construct, or carry out a project to construct a wall, barrier, fence, or road” along the U.S. southern border. And House Armed Services Committee Chairman Adam Smith (D-Wash.) told Shanahan during a panel hearing in March that the Pentagon would likely lose the reprogramming authority if it moved forward with the $1 billion funding transfer.

    Let’s localize that comment.

    …you find that spiteful act a beautiful thing! Amazing… And then you refer to the rough n tumble, hurly burly of political relationships per Nadler’s and POTUS history and perceive the former seeking pay back now for some spite back then…

    Interesting form of dispassionate analysis you employ here ! Amazing how we defend our biases!

    Anyhow, not to bore with too much chatter so let me just pick up on one other of your responses.

    Is it your contention that in the midst of a known enemy’s intention to subvert; imprecise knowledge of election and other interference from credible intelligence services of friendly countries that the security services apparatus of the US in the guise of the FBI were to completely dismiss WITHOUT investigation claims made by a credible former intelligence officer re citizen Trump..?

    Are you even half way serious!

    You are deliberately misleading to say the dossier claims have all been debunked…surely the lurid sexcapades have not been validated but the “claims” of the cultivation of citizen Trump over many years, his business relationships there and interactions of his associates have never been disproven.

    The entire set of claims were a US national security priority and the only reason folks make astonishing claims like yours is due to political supine positioning….RATIONAL folks see it for the problem it could have been. It had to be investigated!

    That’s it… your other comments are interesting but maybe another time.

  • Democrats have lashed Attorney General William Pelham Barr to the horns of a dilemma: He must choose either to violate or to obey federal law, and then await the consequences.

    House Judiciary Committee chairman Jerrold Nadler of New York and other Democrats subpoenaed Barr for a pristine copy of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Russiagate report, complete with grand-jury testimony. Barr did not budge. The committee then voted 24–16 Wednesday to hold Barr in contempt of Congress.

    Alas for Barr, he is bound by the Federal Rules of Criminal Procedure. Rule 6(e)(2)(b)(vi) states: “Unless these rules provide otherwise, the following persons must not disclose a matter occurring before the grand jury . . . an attorney for the government.” Even more ominous, under Rule 6(e)(7), “A knowing violation of Rule 6 . . . may be punished as a contempt of court.”

    So, if Barr fails to deliver Mueller’s untouched findings, the full House will vote him in contempt of Congress, “when we’re ready,” Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.) threatened Thursday. But if he caves under Democratic pressure, a federal judge could rule him in contempt of court.

    Contempt of Congress or contempt of court? Barr is like a restaurant patron staring at a menu with just two choices: arsenic salad or cream of cyanide.

    Assistant Attorney General for Legislative Affairs Stephen E. Boyd reminded Nadler about this. “As we have repeatedly explained, the Attorney General could not comply with your subpoena in its current form without violating the law, court rules, and court orders, and without threatening the independence of the Department of Justice’s prosecutorial functions,” Boyd wrote Wednesday. “Rule 6(e) contains no exception that would permit the Department to provide grand-jury information to the Committee in connection with its oversight role.”

    DOJ spokesperson Kerri Kupec was less diplomatic: “No one, including Chairman Nadler and his Committee, will force the Department of Justice to break the law.”

    Democrats ignored this and approved their contempt motion along party lines.

    Democrats cannot claim that Barr is hiding the Mueller Report. In fact, Boyd wrote Nadler, “the Attorney General offered you and other congressional leaders the chance to review the report with redactions only for grand-jury information (because disclosure of that information is prohibited by law). That would permit you to review 98.5 percent of the report, including 99.9 percent of Volume II, which discusses the investigation of the President’s actions.”

    To date, not a single Democrat, including Chairman Nadler, has reviewed the minimally-redacted report,” available at Justice headquarters. White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders reiterated Wednesday, “Not a single Democrat has even taken the time to go and look at it.”

    Democrats are steering America into a constitutional crisis over a document, nearly all of which they already have at their fingertips — but refuse to touch. Nadler is like an infant screaming his lungs out for a brimming bottle of baby formula, even as the 98.5 percent–full bottle right beside him cools from neglect.

They will never forgive the outsider for that one. Trump must have laughed till he nearly dropped dead; considering the remarks they have made about him.

    Look, you may not like Trump, you may find some things about his behavior annoying and wish for a more traditional President, but you cannot argue with the results.

    In fact, history has shown us time and again that Americans vote with the economy and they will cross the aisle to vote for the other side if the economy is good.

    And Trump’s economy is great, not good. Good luck with that Democrats. Sebastian wrote,

    North Carolina Blowback Intensifies on Richard Burr's Rogue Subpoena
    The intense home state backlash against Sen. Richard Burr (R-NC), the chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee, for issuing a rogue subpoena of President Donald Trump’s eldest son Donald Trump, Jr., has only gotten worse in the days since news came out about Burr’s questionable move.

    “The people of North Carolina are very upset about this,” Wayne King, the deputy chief of staff to Rep. Mark Meadows (R-NC) and former vice chairman of the North Carolina GOP, said on Breitbart News Saturday on SiriusXM 125 the Patriot Channel. “They’re very upset about the attack on the president’s family and the attack on the president, and you can’t call it anything else but that–it’s an attack on the president and the first family. I’ve spent a good bit of time with Donald Trump, Jr., and he’s such a nice man–and for his family and him to have to go through this once again is just unbelievable to me. As a private citizen, he should be just that–a private citizen. Sen. Burr’s not running again, and his seat will be up in 2022, so there’s not any electoral repercussions [for him], but certainly people are talking about it and they’re very upset about it. I think that’s the reason Sen. Tillis came out so strongly against it, because he knew that that is not supported in North Carolina.”

    King also said that the subpoena is indefensible and meant to “target” not only President Trump but the president’s whole family.

    “I don’t understand that either. To subpoena a private citizen who’s already appeared before and testified some 25 hours is unbelievable to me,” King said. “It’s a target to the president’s family. It’s a target to the president. And it’s a problem, it’s a problem in this state, it’s a problem nationally, and the truth of the matter is when Leader McConnell says that the investigation is over, it should be over. We obviously have the Mueller report, which obviously the president was vindicated in that report in my opinion, and now they want to circle back again? It’s unbelievable. We control the U.S. Senate–now we need to act like we control the U.S. Senate.”

    King is hardly alone in North Carolina. His boss, Meadows, who chairs the powerful House Freedom Caucus, was one of the first to publicly condemn the subpoena. Meadows called the subpoena “beyond inappropriate.”

    Serving a subpoena to Don Trump Jr.—a private citizen who voluntarily testified before 3 Congressional committees for 25+ hours—is beyond inappropriate. He answered questions and was cleared in the Mueller report after a 2 year, unlimited investigation.

    It’s over. Let it go.

    So did Rep. Mark Walker (R-NC), another powerful North Carolina Republican who chairs the Republican Study Committee (RSC), which represents a vast swath of the GOP conference in the House.

    @RepMarkWalker
    Dems are trying to tear down @realDonaldTrump’s presidency by any means they can. @DonaldJTrumpJr has given 25+ hours of testimony and put up with enough crap.

    Can executive privilege extend to children? Maybe it should!

    @SenThomTillis
    I agree with Leader McConnell: this case is closed. The Mueller Report cleared @DonaldJTrumpJr and he’s already spent 27 hours testifying before Congress. Dems have made it clear this is all about politics. It’s time to move on & start focusing on issues that matter to Americans.

    Notably, no North Carolina Republicans were defending Burr–an interesting point. Some remained silent for now, but with the Trump team very fired up about this and demanding lawmakers take a position–Trump, Jr.’s team especially is taking a “with us or against us, no middle ground” approach to this, sources close to him say–it is likely only a matter of time before the rest of the delegation in North Carolina comes out on this issue.

    “Our red lines aren’t like Obama’s,” a source close to the first family told Breitbart News. “We actually enforce them.”

    Jason Miller: Richard Burr Is Just Being a Wimp Here, Getting Rolled by Mark Warner
    This article was sourced from Breitbart

    Former Trump 2016 campaign communications adviser Jason Miller joined Breitbart News Daily on SiriusXM Saturday to share his thoughts on Sen. Richard Burr’s (R-NC) recent subpoena of President Trump’s eldest son, Donald Trump Jr.
    “I am fired up and mad as hell about what’s going on on Capitol Hill right now. This continual harassment of President Trump and his family has got to stop,” Miller told Breitbart News Washington Political Editor Matthew Boyle.

    “The Mueller report has completely cleared the president, the campaign, his family, every single American of any sort of collusion or obstruction,” Miller stated. “To now have this type of harassment on Don. Jr, I think is despicable, and I think the backlash on Senator Burr is justified, and I think it’s only going to continue to grow.”

    Throughout the interview, Miller questioned, criticized, and shared what he believes to be the motives behind the rogue subpoena of Trump Jr.

    “We already have a 450-page report from former FBI Director Mueller saying that there is no obstruction, no collusion,” Miller said. “What do they think they’re going to be able to get to the bottom of, or answer whatever question, that Bob Mueller couldn’t get to the bottom of after $30 million and almost two years of investigation?”

    “There’s no more civil discourse or polite conversation about this issue on Capitol Hill. This is specifically being used to try to destroy the president and destroy his family.”

    Miller also pointed out Burr’s bias in siding with Democrats on the committee he oversees, the Senate Intelligence Committee.

    “Who is Burr siding with? He’s siding with Mark Warner, who’s the vice chairman and minority member of the committee, along with two Democratic presidential candidates who are on this committee.”

    “If you don’t think that this is gonna be an absolute political circus and this is only playing right into the Democrats’ hands, you’re completely foolish.”

    Miller reaffirmed that the investigation is over and called Burr a “wimp” for letting other members on the committee control the gavel.

    “Case closed. This is over. The fact that they’re doing this only serves to go and harass the president and his family and it has to stop.”

    “Ultimately, Burr is just being a wimp here. He’s getting rolled by Mark Warner. Why don’t we just go ahead and hand the gavel over to Mark Warner and just acknowledge what seems to be clear,” Miller asked. “The fact that Burr is not squashing this thing and wants to go and ratchet it up is mind-blowing to me.”

    On this matter has it dawned on any North Carolinians that governance DEMANDS challenging your own best interest when there is a valid reason ?

    Why would a republican senator recall this man unless there is some unanswered matter to be resolved which Jr and his attorneys have determined they are unwilling to VOLUNTARILY address?

    Why have they adopted that stance ? If all is good simply go to the committee answer the damn questions and be done with it…this drama is quite contrived … Clearly they wanted to have a subpoena issued to carry out this grandstanding …and chair Burr obliged!

Burr isn’t running again so the “blowback” in North Carolina is just so much hot air. Suddenly Burr is a bad guy because he has defied Trump but Burr is no Howard Baker who directly challenged Nixon, remember Burr went to the WH to disclose information that was gleaned from closed door testimony of people called to testify before the Senate Intelligence Committee.

  • LONDON MAYER ATTACKS TRUMP, QUEEN ELIZABETH FIRES BACK BIG TIME…

    By Carmine Sabia
    Published May 12, 2019 at 1:27pm

    The Muslim Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, has been attacking President Donald Trump non stop since his visit to England was announced.

    But now, Queen Elizabeth II gave the mayor a swift kick in the pants by embarrassing him by scratching his name off the guest list for the event, Labour’s Mr Khan was left off the guest list by the Monarch, despite announcing he would be happy to meet the American. Mr Khan’s spokesman, Jonathan Weisgard, told Newsweek: “The mayor has not been invited to the state banquet.” Invitations were sent to Lib Dem leader Sir Vince Cable and Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn, who both declined to attend.

    Mr Khan and Mr Trump have clashed on numerous occasions in the run-up to the President’s second state visit, the first being last year.

    Mr Khan, who has been condemned by Mr Trump for London’s knife crime epidemic, agreed to allow a blimp of the Republican to fly over the Capital in protest to his last visit….

    In protest of Mr Khan’s decision to allow the blimp to fly over London, a second blimp was made that also depicted the major as a giant baby was flown over the city.

    Whether the so-called ‘Trump Baby Blimp’ will be used again for the state visit planned for early next month remains unknown.

    President Trump also locked horns with Mr Khan over his controversial decision to attempt to temporarily ban Muslims from entering the US in response to terrorism.
    Did the Queen do the proper thing?

    Khan has been hammering President Trump and using him as a way to score points in his liberal city, London Mayor Sadiq Khan said President Trump was not “in the same class” as his predecessors ahead of the commander in chief’s state visit to the United Kingdom next month.

    In a recent interview with British radio station LBC, Khan was asked about Trump’s state visit.

    “Of course we should have a close relationship with the president of the United States, but we shouldn’t be rolling out the red carpet; we shouldn’t have a state banquet,” Khan said.

    “History tells us only two presidents have had a state visit,” the mayor said.

    “I think President Trump is certainly not in the same class as those two,” he continued, referring to former President George W. Bush and former President Barack Obama. Bush visited in 2003 while Obama went in 2011.

    Khan told the host that he would not go to the state dinner if he was invited and approved of Labour Party Leader Jeremy Corbyn’s decision not to attend the event.

    The mayor said he had an issue with how Trump talked about women.

    FREEDOM SUPPOSES THAT IS BECAUSE KHAN BELIEVES THAT SHARIA LAW WITH ITS FEMALE GENITAL MUTILATION IS BETTER THAN HOW TRUMP SPEAKS!

    Levin: Time for Comey and ‘the whole cabal’ to testify under oath
    May 11, 2019

    Former FBI director James Comey is busy doing damage control in the media, but the walls are closing in. An inspector general probe into the FBI’s alleged surveillance abuses is expected to wrap up within the next month or so.

    Speaking to Fox News host Sean Hannity, Levin has some ideas about how the DOJ should proceed. “What oughta happen here is there ought to be a grand jury impaneled,” conservative radio host Mark Levin argued on Fox News’ Hannity Thursday night. “Comey should give testimony. [Andrew] McCabe should give testimony. [James] Baker should give testimony. [Peter] Strzok. [Lisa] Page. The whole cabal should be giving testimony.”

    “We should have a criminal grand jury, and we should have either a special counsel or a United States Attorney take the case and get to the bottom of it,” Levin demanded. “Put these people under oath, and let them get the Donald Trump treatment. We want all their documents, no privileges, nothing. Drag them in, and you know, maybe drag their kids in, too.” Watch Levin below:

    Levin was reacting to Comey’s appearance at a CNN townhall-style event hosted by Anderson Cooper, where the ex-FBI agent claimed that the bureau he oversaw was “very reasonable” and “careful” about the secret wiretaps and informants it used to track the Trump campaign in 2016. Attorney General William Barr and other law enforcement experts have called these surveillance tactics “spying.”

    “I can’t believe Republicans would have wanted it any other way and we acted in a very responsible, limited and constrained way,” Comey said. “I’m proud of the way we conducted ourselves.”

    Actually, Republicans are horrified by the clandestine means the FBI and Justice Department (DOJ) used to monitor the leading Republican presidential candidate. Last year, House Republicans led by Nunes examined Comey’s use of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) and found that he and other DOJ officials used unverified political opposition research as the basis for requesting electronic surveillance of a Trump campaign aide.

    Each of the federal law enforcement officials named by Levin has come under scrutiny for corrupt actions designed to take down the president. McCabe was fired from the bureau for leaking to the media and lying to investigators, while Baker is still under investigation for criminal leaking.

    Strzok, a top FBI agent, was removed from the special counsel — which took over the Russia investigation after Comey was fired for incompetence in May 2017 — when text messages he exchanged with his lover, Lisa Page, demonstrated his unmistakable bias against Trump. Strzok and Page agreed to “stop” Trump from getting elected, and even spoke of an “insurance policy” against the president if he won the election.

    Comey “made a mess of the FBI”
    “There’s no question as it relates to the FISA on Carter Page that nothing was done by the book,” Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA), the ranking member of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, said Friday on Fox and Friends. “In fact, it was all done — it was all very irregular.”

    “This is a guy who continues to just make a mockery of the entire FBI and the Department of Justice,” Nunes explained. “This is the guy who, remember, leaked his memos in order to make sure that a Special Counsel was created to investigate the president.”

    “This is the guy who put an unverified dossier in front of a FISA court,” he added. “There are lots of problems with Comey’s story. None of it matches up with reality.”

    And yet, Comey is confident that Inspector General Michael Horowitz, in his probe of the government’s conduct during the Russia investigation, will fail to uncover any evidence of wrongdoing from his office.

    Nunes disagreed:

    I don’t think [Comey]’s telling the truth, is the bottom line here. The former FBI director is not a stupid man and he’s acting awfully stupid … Remember when he came before our task force at the end of the last Congress, this is a man who couldn’t answer a question. I think, you know, over 100 times said things like, ‘I don’t recall,’ so whenever put under oath on a body like the legislative body of Congress, the guy couldn’t answer a question. He could do a town hall and make a lot of things up, but look, I think Mr. Comey is in a lot of trouble and he should be. He made a mess of the FBI.

    Comey should be forced to answer for his actions. The Russia investigation has targeted the president’s children, and even now — weeks after the Mueller report proves there was no evidence of collusion — partisan hacks like Comey are still trying to come up with a way to destroy Trump.

    It’s time to give them a taste of their own medicine.

    He’s a retired SEC attorney and in this talk he tells the story of how Goldman Sachs and other Wall Street criminals were allowed to skate away from their multi-billion dollar crimes.

    One fun fact: Only four junior lawyers were put on a high profile Goldman Sachs subprime fraud case.

    Investors lost $1 billion. A “friend” of Goldman Sachs, John Paulson, made $1 billion on the deal.

    The scam involved packaging the worst mortgages on the market and designed to fail.

    Goldman then marketed these toxic bundles of loans to institutional investors looking for a safe, conservative investment to fund school, pensions, hospitals and local governments.

    John Paulson was allowed to place a bet that the loans would fail (which after all that’s what they were designed to do) and when they failed Paulson collected $1 billion.

  • Obama’s White House Lead Hillary’s Email Cover-Up

    A new bombshell report is indicating that former President Obama’s White House was aware of the inquiry into Hillary Clinton’s use of private email as early as 2012 and worked to cover it up.

    The cover-up was done by improperly denying Freedom of Information Act Requests made to the State Department.

    According to The Daily Caller:

    The Obama White House kept tabs on a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request for information on former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s email accounts that the State Department improperly denied, according to newly released emails.

    The emails, which were provided to Judicial Watch, show for the first time that the Obama White House was aware of the Clinton-related FOIA request, which the liberal watchdog group Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW) submitted to the State Department in December 2012.

    The State Department denied the request in May 2013, claiming that no responsive records existed. That despite officials at the State Department, the White House and even President Obama himself knowing that Clinton used a personal email account for government business.

    Judicial Watch’s Tom Fitton’s theory on the White House’s interest:

    “These documents suggest the Obama White House knew about the Clinton email lies being told to the public at least as early as December 2012,” he said in a statement.

    The report indicates that if the FOIA request would have been fulfilled the public would have known of Clinton’s impropriety earlier than 2015.

    Clinton denied using the private email server for classified information but a subsequent investigation determined that was a lie. James Comey even stated that Clinton’s use of the server was “extremely careless.”

    HOW COULD THIS REPORT BE TRUE?
