Mueller probe meltdown

Andrew C. McCarthy Jr. headed the team that successfully prosecuted the Muslim terrorists who bombed and tried to destroy the World Trade Center in 1993. His take on Robert Mueller's investigation is explosive:
A long front-page story in the Washington Post Friday that claims America’s security is at risk because President Trump refuses to accept findings of U.S. intelligence agencies that Russia interfered in our 2016 presidential election is deeply flawed and amounts to fake news.
I reach this conclusion based on my 25 years working in and with the U.S. intelligence community. It is clear to me that the Post story is designed to advance the left’s teetering Trump-Russia collusion narrative.


Mueller's investigation is leaking like the Exxon Valdez as it lists starboard.

Just as his seven-year investigation into the anthrax terrorism following 9/11 went after the wrong guy, Mueller's Russian Dossier investigation chases the victim of the Democratic Party's attempt to sabotage the Trump presidency and overturn the 2016 presidential loss.

The real evil is that Obama, Clapper, Comey, and the rest turned our national security apparatus into political spies.

From Circa:
The government in 2016 also scoured the actual contents of NSA intercepted calls and emails for 5,288 Americans, an increase of 13 percent over the prior year and a massive spike from the 198 names searched in 2013.
The searches ultimately resulted in 3,134 NSA intelligence reports with unredacted U.S. names being distributed across government in 2016, and another 3,354 reports in 2015. About half the time, U.S. identities were unredacted in the original reports while the other half were unmasked after the fact by special request of Obama administration officials.
Among those whose names were unmasked in 2016 or early 2017 were campaign or transition associates of President Trump as well as members of Congress and their staffers, according to sources with direct knowledge.
Obama could not stop the Islamic State from rising, but by golly he went after Americans.

But Mueller is the subject at hand.

His abuse of power -- forcing Trump's friends and family to spend millions on lawyers as he drags them to his inquisitions -- deserves investigation. How would he like it if he were bankrupted by hours spent before prosecutors and congressional committees?

While McCarthy's target was a lengthy story Friday in the Washington Post, his insights show the Russian dossier for what it is: lies aimed at undermining a duly elected president.

That is the real constitutional crisis.

McCarthy said the Obama intelligence team tried to set up Trump:
One has to ask why President Obama chose December 29, 2016 to sanction Russia when Russia had committed many other heinous acts during his presidency, such as invading and seizing Crimea and supporting rebels in Ukraine who shot down a Malaysian Air flight in 2014.
President Obama’s 11th hour Russia sanctions were not just an attempt to sabotage the Trump administration’s Russia policy. They also were a trap to catch Trump officials in a supposed Logan Act violation by discussing these sanctions with Russian officials before Trump was sworn in.
The Logan Act is a law enacted in 1799 that criminalizes attempts by private citizens to  intervene without authorization to try to negotiate disputes or controversies between the U.S. and foreign governments. No one has ever been convicted of violating the law.
Sadly, Lieutenant General Michael Flynn had to cop a plea with Team Mueller. Flynn could not withstand the cost of lawyers.

The president must pardon Flynn to rectify this injustice.

He lied to an FBI that covered up and destroyed evidence of major security leaks by Hillary.

This is the real abuse of power that must be prosecuted.

It won't.

Meanwhile, Mueller crossed the line, according to Fox News:
A lawyer for the Trump presidential transition team is accusing Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s office of inappropriately obtaining transition documents as part of its Russia probe, including confidential attorney-client communications, privileged communications and thousands of emails.
In a letter obtained by Fox News and sent to House and Senate committees on Saturday, the transition team’s attorney alleges “unlawful conduct” by the career staff at the General Services Administration in handing over transition documents to the special counsel’s office.
The transition legal team argues it could be a violation of the 4th Amendment – which protects against unreasonable searches and seizures.
Post-election communications within the coming Trump administration have nothing to do with Mueller's job, which was to look for collusion between the campaign and the Kremlin.

Do we really want ours to be in a country where taxpayers support political espionage by Marxists such as Obama and Mueller?

Mueller needs to stop trolling and cut bait.

And Trump needs to appoint a special counsel to investigate Team Mueller.

  1. 2018 is going to be an explosive year.

    Lefties are thinking Mueller cracks on President Trump.

    Wrong.

    There is an avalanche of proof coming regarding the points Mr. McCarthy and Mr. Surber made above. But there is a lot lot more, and real evidence will be there.

    Please have some faith in DA Sessions, FBI Director Wray, and others. When they start unveiling, it will be massive and it will stick.

    Watergate and Tammany Hall will look like a picnic compared to what is about to break. It's why the Dems are even more delusional by the day. The trick is how to roll out the information to the American people. There is going to be a lot for the average person that does not follow politics closely to digest. Especially if they get their news from the mainstream media.

  3. Don,

    The issue for Mueller as Special Council is that Trump Presidential Transition documents he obtained from the GSA are not admissible as evidence in Court because they are not “authenticated” by the appropriate custodian of records and “verified” as true and correct by the statement of a percipient witness or by a duly authorized attorney, which here would be Deputy AG Rosenstein.

    The GSA coughed up the PTT documents in August 2017 and the Trump lawyers figured it out last week.

    Every bit of investigation that used those files is now "Fruit of a Poisoned Tree" and Mueller has to prove to a judge that nothing in his convictions or further investigations relied upon that information in any way.

    Not going to happen.

    The issue with Flynn is he ran out of money to fight any further.

    Running an innocent man out of money to cope a plea to a lessor process crime he isn't guilty of is how the Deep State runs its lawfare arm.

    The proper answer for Flynn is a Presidential pardon.

    1. You miss the point.

      Mueller's investigation is all about impeaching President Trump. That is political. He is not concerned about going in front of a Judge. His job is to feed red meat to the members of Congress in his final findings. Assuming there will be final findings.

      If we go by the rule of law, there must be a crime to appoint a Special Council / Persecutor to investigate. There is no crime that Mr. Mueller's band of Dem operatives are investigating. They are looking for dirt on President Trump by finding members of his staff did something, thereby meaning he authorized the deed; which in turn upsets the high integrity and lawful members of Congress to assume Blazing Saddles mode, and declare - "Harrumph! Harrumph! We must do something about this immediately! Harrumph! Harrumph!" and vote to impeach.

    3. Mueller did not set up a firewall team between his prosecution team and the GSA documents that included Attorney-client And Executive Privledged communication.

      There are criminal laws specifically geared to address that prosecution abuse.

      The specific remedies start with dismissal of all the prosecutors involved and the vacating of all guilty verdicts under the "fruit of a poisoned tree" legal doctrine.

      Followed shortly by disbarment of the prosecutors and their criminal prosecution.

  4. Do you know who should be tried under the Logan Act? Sean Penn and Dennis Rodman. Both of these civilians took it upon themselves to visit a political enemy of America (Penn to Iraq; Rodman to North Korea) for the purpose of "intervening." Not surprisingly, both supported the enemy.

  5. To try to influence an election by subterfuge? From within the framework of government agencies? Sedition, at least.

    To try to depose a lawfully elected President? Treason?

    The U.S. Constitution, Article III, Section 3 states: "Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying War against them, or in adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort."

    So, meh. Maybe not Treason, but Sedition at least. I'll leave it up to the jury. In any case, hangin' is too good for 'em. - Elric

  6. McCarthy has some good insights, but he still gives the Deep-State bureaucrats way too much benefit of the doubt. He and Sessions both have a "my esteemed colleague"-problem. Because they are both fundamentally decent and professional, they wildly underestimate the depth of the corruption inflicted on our institutions during the Obama regime.

    Sessions in particular seems more concerned with Strozk's rights than the fact that the guy was working overtime to criminally ensure that Jeff Sessions would never become his boss in the first place.

    We cannot have the FBI picking our presidents, courts rubber-stamping the wiretapping of candidates, a weaponized and partisan NatSec apparatus or even cabinet secretaries selling policy.

  7. I really think that the idea was to get some kind of probe going with any Hitchcockian "maguffin" that seemed plausible, and that something, somewhere, would turn up that would be enough to hound Trump from office.

    It was more an act of faith than anything else. Like telling people the day that the world will end.

    Turns out faith was not enough. There's no pony under that pile of horseshit.

    But they go on wallowing in it anyway.

    2. --Here is what we now know, per intelligence gleaned form federal law enforcement sources with insider knowledge of what amounts to a plot by U.S. intelligence agencies to secure back door and illegal wiretaps of President Trump’s associates:

      Six U.S. agencies created a stealth task force, spearhead by CIA’s Brennan, to run domestic surveillance on Trump associates and possibly Trump himself.
      To feign ignorance and to seemingly operate within U.S. laws, the agencies freelanced the wiretapping of Trump associates to the British spy agency GCHQ.
      The decision to insert GCHQ as a back door to eavesdrop was sparked by the denial of two FISA Court warrant applications filed by the FBI to seek wiretaps of Trump associates.
      GCHQ did not work from London or the UK. In fact the spy agency worked from NSA’s headquarters in Fort Meade, MD with direct NSA supervision and guidance to conduct sweeping surveillance on Trump associates.
      The illegal wiretaps were initiated months before the controversial Trump dossier compiled by former British spy Christopher Steele.
      The Justice Department and FBI set up the meeting at Trump Tower between Trump Jr., Manafort and Kushner with controversial Russian officials to make Trump’s associates appear compromised.
      Following the Trump Tower sit down, GCHQ began digitally wiretapping Manafort, Trump Jr., and Kushner.
      After the concocted meeting by the Deep State, the British spy agency could officially justify wiretapping Trump associates as an intelligence front for NSA because the Russian lawyer at the meeting Natalia Veselnitskaya was considered an international security risk and prior to the June sit down was not even allowed entry into the United States or the UK, federal sources said.
      By using GCHQ, the NSA and its intelligence partners had carved out a loophole to wiretap Trump without a warrant. While it is illegal for U.S. agencies to monitor phones and emails of U.S. citizens inside the United States absent a warrant, it is not illegal for British intelligence to do so. Even if the GCHQ was tapping Trump on U.S. soil at Fort Meade.
      The wiretaps, secured through illicit scheming, have been used by U.S. Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s probe of alleged Russian collusion in the 2016 election, even though the evidence is considered “poisoned fruit.”--

  11. Andrew C. McCarthy's bottom line: "while there is cause for concern, the results Mueller has produced so far appear free of political taint."

    Further, as McCarthy notes, in the case of an FBI agent who sent texts suggesting potential bias, "Mueller was scrupulous about removing what was, at the least, the appearance of impropriety."

    McCarthy added: "I was a federal prosecutor in New York for many years, and I was not shy about sharing my conservative political views. Nor were my colleagues — my best friends in the office were liberal Democrats. But it was understood that our politics were checked at the door. ... Personally, I am not much alarmed that several of Mueller’s staffers have anti-Trump political views."

    "For Trump, the best outcome is that he leaves Mueller in place and is exonerated. For Mueller, the best outcome is that the public accepts the integrity of whatever decisions he makes. In that regard, I began with the belief that Mueller was a superb choice whose well-earned reputation for personal integrity would be critical. I still think so, but I’ve been shaken by his puzzling insensitivity to the imperative that his staff be, and be seen as, driven by evidence, not anti-Trump bias."

  14. Whatever the legal status of Mueller's seizure of the Trump transition team's emails and other records might be, think of what the impact is for future presidential transition teams. Would any transition team ever be so foolish to conduct their business in the light? Prudence would say that all sensitive discussions during the transfer of power should be jealously guarded lest the records be seized and leaked to the enemedia It means going "dark" to avoid the same kind of deep state revolt now being aimed at Trump. The harm Mueller may have caused to our nation's tradition of peaceful transfer of power between administrations is potentially enormous.
