STEVE BANNON SUBPOENAED BY MUELLER TO TESTIFY BEFORE GRAND JURY OVER RUSSIA COLLUSION HOAX

Posted on

 

WASHINGTON — Stephen K. Bannon, President Trump’s former chief strategist, was subpoenaed last week by the special counsel, Robert S. Mueller III, to testify before a grand jury as part of the investigation into possible links between Mr. Trump’s associates and Russia, according to a person with direct knowledge of the matter.

The move marked the first time Mr. Mueller is known to have used a grand jury subpoena to seek information from a member of Mr. Trump’s inner circle. The special counsel’s office has used subpoenas before to seek information on Mr. Trump’s associates and their possible ties to Russia or other foreign governments.

The subpoena could be a negotiating tactic. Mr. Mueller is likely to allow Mr. Bannon to forgo the grand jury appearance if he agrees to instead be questioned by investigators in the less formal setting of the special counsel’s offices about ties between Mr. Trump’s associates and Russia and about the president’s conduct in office, according to the person, who would not be named discussing the case. But it was not clear why Mr. Mueller treated Mr. Bannon differently than the dozen administration officials who were interviewed in the final months of last year and were never served with a subpoena.

The subpoena is a sign that Mr. Bannon is not personally the focus of the investigation. Justice Department rules allow prosecutors to subpoena to the targets of investigations only in rare circumstances.

4 INDICTMENTS IN URANIUM ONE FBI PROBE CONCEALED BY OBAMA ADMIN – USING ONE JUDGE, SAME PROSECUTORS, ONE FBI OFFICIAL

Posted on Updated on

 

In  2008, Robert Mueller’s FBI investigation on Tenam ( a U.S. subsidiary of Russia’s Rosatom, which purchased Uranium One, without Congress approval,  via Hillary Clinton ) led to at least 4 indictments by Obama’s DOJ:

  • All 4 indictments were either quietly settled under plea agreements, or dropped entirely
  • ALL 4 cases were prosecuted by Rod Rosenstein & Andrew Weissman ( Both part of Mueller’s team in Trump-Russia probe )
  • The FBI officer assigned to each case was Andrew McCabe.
  • ALL assigned to the same judge – one Judge Theodore Chuang, an Obama appointee

The Tenam investigation is related to the Uranium One (U1) sale. Thats because the Tenam investigation was hidden from Congress & CFIUS, who approved the U1 sale in Oct 2010. If either had known about it, it’s highly unlikely the U1 sale would have been approved.

Tenam is the US based subsidiary of Tenex, a subsidiary of Rosatom, the Kremlin’s (Putin’s) energy company. The same Rosatom that purchased Uranium One.

Independent researcher Imperator Rex has put together a great thread on twitter showing how Robert Mueller’s FBI probe into Russian Uranium One bribery scheme was deliberately concealed by the Obama administration.

 

Here’s part of the thread:  

 

7. And the more you analyze the Tenam investigation, the more it appears that the Obama administration and/or Clintons deliberately wanted it hidden.

3. Background & reminder : from at least 2008, Robert Mueller’s FBI were investigating Tenam, the US based subsidiary of Tenex, a subsidiary of Rosatom, the Kremlin’s (Putin’s) energy company. The same Rosatom that purchased Uranium One.

4. Tenam was importing Russian uranium into the US. Between 2004-2014, the local manager, Mikerin, engaged with US companies Transport Logistics (TL) & NexGen Security in a racketeering, wire fraud, bribery & money laundering scheme.

5. When a TL insider, William Campbell, blew the whistle on what he was seeing, Mueller’s FBI started an investigation that led to at least 4 indictments by Holder’s DOJ.

6. Remember – the Tenam investigation is related to the Uranium One (U1) sale. Thats because the Tenam investigation was hidden from Congress & CFIUS, who approved the U1 sale in Oct 2010. If either had known about it, it’s highly unlikely the U1 sale would have been approved.

9. Now consider this – none of the 4 indictments ever saw the light of day. Every one was either quietly settled under plea agreements, or dropped entirely

14. Notice something about these cases? None ever saw the light of day, where testimony would be made public. They were all ‘disappeared’. Now with that in mind, consider the following bombshell facts:

10. Mikerin, the Tenam manager, was sentenced to 48 months under a plea deal, for crimes that had 20+ year sentences

11. Darren Condrey – plea agreement : Anti-Bribery, Conspiracy

12. Carol Condrey – under a plea agreement , her case was dropped

13. Rubizhevsky (NexGen) case settled with plea agreement. Astonishing given the charges: Conspiracy to Launder Money (18 U.S.C. § 371; 18 U.S.C. §§ 1956, 1957) ; Criminal Forfeiture (28 U.S.C. § 2461; 18 U.S.C. § 981) ; Criminal Forfeiture (18 U.S.C. § 982)

15. ALL of these cases were prosecuted by the same duo, or combination thereof – Rod Rosenstein & Andrew Weissman.

16. The FBI officer assigned to each case? Why, one Andrew McCabe.

17. Oh – here’s another interesting coincidence : they were ALL assigned to the same judge – one Judge Theodore Chuang, an Obama appointee. I hope you have not fallen off your chair yet, it gets worse:

 

 

 

LEAKERS! FBI PETER STZOK AND HIS LOVER FBI LISA PAGE TEXT MESSAGES ABOUT LEAKING ARTICLE TO WSJ

Posted on Updated on

“Article is out, but hidden behind paywall so can’t read it,” Page texted Strzok on Oct. 24, 2016.

“Wsj? Boy that was fast,” Strzok texted back, using the initials of the famed financial newspaper. “Should I ‘find’ it and tell the team?”

“I can get it like I do every other article that hits any Google News alerts, seriously,” Strzok wrote, adding he didn’t want his team hearing about the article “from someone else.”

( The Hill ) Republican-led House and Senate committees are investigating whether leaders of the Russia counterintelligence investigation had contacts with the news media that resulted in improper leaks, prompted in part by text messages amongst senior FBI officials mentioning specific reporters, news organizations and articles.

In one exchange, FBI counterintelligence agent Peter Strzok and bureau lawyer Lisa Page engaged in a series of texts shortly before Election Day 2016 suggesting they knew in advance about an article in The Wall Street Journal and would need to feign stumbling onto the story so it could be shared with colleagues.

 

“Article is out, but hidden behind paywall so can’t read it,” Page texted Strzok on Oct. 24, 2016.

“Wsj? Boy that was fast,” Strzok texted back, using the initials of the famed financial newspaper. “Should I ‘find’ it and tell the team?”

The text messages, which were reviewed by The Hill, show the two FBI agents discussed how they might make it appear they innocently discovered the article, such as through Google News alerts.

“I can get it like I do every other article that hits any Google News alerts, seriously,” Strzok wrote, adding he didn’t want his team hearing about the article “from someone else.”

Strzok played a key role in the early Russia election meddling probe before he was removed last summer by special counsel Robert Mueller for exchanging text messages critical of President Trump then still a candidate, with Page.

DESPERATE MUELLER IS INVESTIGATING IVANKA TRUMP FOR SAYING HELLO TO FUSION-GPS PLANTED RUSSIAN DUO IN TRUMP TOWER ELEVATOR

Posted on Updated on

 

The Los Angeles Times broke the news this morning that Robert Mueller is targeting  Ivanka Trump for saying hello at the elevator with Fusion GPS-planted Russian duo, Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya and lobbyist Rinat Akhmetshin, after their Trump Tower meeting with Donald Trump Jr. and Jared Kushner in 2016.

 

Investigators also are exploring the involvement of the president’s daughter, Ivanka Trump, who did not attend the half-hour sit-down on June 9, 2016, but briefly spoke with two of the participants, a Russian lawyer and a Russian-born Washington lobbyist. Details of the encounter were not previously known.

It occurred at the Trump Tower elevator as the Russian lawyer, Natalia Veselnitskaya, and the lobbyist, Rinat Akhmetshin, were leaving the building and consisted of pleasantries, a person familiar with the episode said. But Mueller’s investigators want to know every contact the two visitors had with Trump’s family members and inner circle.

Mueller long has sought to nail down details of the unusual gathering at the height of the presidential race between three of Trump’s top campaign aides — his eldest son, Donald Trump Jr., his son-in-law, Jared Kushner, and his campaign manager, Paul Manafort — and Veselnitskaya, Akhmetshin, plus a Russian language translator, a U.S.-based employee of a Russian real estate group, and a British music promoter with Russian business ties who helped bring the group together.”

GOOD! PAUL MANAFORT SUES SPECIAL COUNSEL ROBERT MUELLER AND DOJ

Posted on

Attorneys for Manafort argued that Rosenstein overstepped his authority in May 2017 when he appointed Mueller as special counsel to investigate “links and/or coordination between the Russian government and individuals associated with the campaign of President Donald Trump” and “any matters that arose or may arise directly from” that investigation.

 

The scope of the investigation is overly broad, Manafort’s attorneys argued, asking a judge to set aside both the October indictment and Rosenstein’s appointment of Mueller.

Trump lawyers met with Mueller’s team in December: report

Posted on

( The Hill ) Lawyers for President Trumpmet with members of special counsel Robert Mueller  team shortly before Christmas, CNN reported on Tuesday.

The details of the meeting were not reported, but according to CNN, the president’s outside legal team was hoping to better understand the next steps in the probe and when it might come to an end.

Trump’s lawyers have repeatedly predicted that investigation would wrap up quickly, though media reports indicate that the probe could continue well into 2018.

Neither the White House nor the special counsel’s office immediately responded to The Hill’s requests for comment.

It was not the first time Trump’s lawyers have met with Mueller’s team. But the meeting came after investigators wrapped up interviews with White House officials they had requested to speak with.

Mueller and his team are looking into Russian meddling in the 2016 election, as well as possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Moscow.
