MUST READ: Mueller’s Bumbling and Hysterical Special Counsel Team Is Getting Pummeled in Court – Media Is Ignoring All of This

  • Concord Management’s lawyers on 10 Russians linked by Mueller to them: “They’re alleged to be associated with something called an “organization,” which is a made up thing by the special counsel. They just made it up, and they called it an “organization”. We’re not even alleged to be part of the organization. We’re alleged to have funded it. But those people don’t work for us. It’s not alleged they they work for us.”
  • ” The Special Counsel seeks to equate this make-believe electioneering case to others involving international terrorism and major drug trafficking, and relies only on irrelevant dicta from inappropriate, primarily out-of-circuit cases.  In short, fake law, which is much more dangerous than fake news.

 

The Gateway Pundit by Joe Hoft

 Concord Management’s lawyers revealed that Mueller’s team ignored over 70 discovery requests they had made for information before the case.  In response Mueller’s team offered to give Concord Management’s lawyers a massive amount of social media data from those dangerous trolls (jk) who sought to influence the US election and the majority of it was in RUSSIAN.  Mueller’s lawyers then admitted they don’t even have English translations for the Russian social media posts.

So Mueller’s lawyers don’t have English translations to the Russian social media posts but we’re supposed to believe that Americans were influenced by these posts?
Then among other things previously reported, Mueller’s corrupt attorney Jeannie Rhee went on to align the 10 Russians identified by the Mueller team as members of an ‘organization’.  The Russian company’s attorney responded to the judge who apparently understood that these Russians were all members of Concord Management.  He said:

No that’s not correct. The individual defendants? No. It’s not even alleged who they are. They’re alleged to be associated with something called an “organization,” which is a made up thing by the special counsel. They just made it up, and they called it an “organization”. We’re not even alleged to be part of the organization. We’re alleged to have funded it. But those people don’t work for us. It’s not alleged they they work for us.

Now this weekend the Concord Management team filed a motion against the Mueller team’s protective order request to conceal all data related to their case.  The Concord team states in their motion filed June 14th (emphasis added) –

Having produced not one iota of discovery in this criminal case the unlawfully appointed Special Counsel requests a special and unprecedented blanket protective order covering tens of millions of pages of unclassified discovery.  Having made this special request based on a secret submission to the Court and a hysterical dithyramb about the future of the American elections, one would think that the Special Counsel would cite to case holdings that support this remarkable request.  But no, instead, the Special Counsel seeks to equate this make-believe electioneering case to others involving international terrorism and major drug trafficking, and relies only on irrelevant dicta from inappropriate, primarily out-of-circuit cases.  In short, fake law, which is much more dangerous than fake news.

RUDY GIULIANI: ‘INVESTIGATE THE INVESTIGATORS’ OF MUELLER’S RUSSIA PROBE

Posted on

  • Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani: “It’s crying out for someone to investigate the investigators. There should be a full and complete IG [Inspector General] report and grand jury investigation of what happened here — after it became the Russia probe,” he added. “What was the purpose of it? What did they gather?”

 

By Gregg Re | Fox News                                          

Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani on Sunday demanded a comprehensive investigation of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s ongoing Russia probe, in the wake of Thursday’s bombshell report by the DOJ watchdog outlining pervasive bias at the DOJ and FBI.

Giuliani also said Trump reserves the right to pardon anyone treated “unfairly” in the Russia probe — a possible reference to onetime Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort, who was ordered to jail last week for allegedly seeking to influence potential witnesses in his criminal cases.

“It’s crying out for someone to investigate the investigators,” Giuliani told CBS’ “Face the Nation.”

“There should be a full and complete IG [Inspector General] report and grand jury investigation of what happened here — after it became the Russia probe,” he added. “What was the purpose of it? What did they gather?”

Giuliani’s comments echoed what he said on “Fox and Friends” last week, when he called on Mueller’s Russia probe to come to an end. The former New York mayor specifically flagged “unethical” and “troubling” anti-Trump behaviors by key figures in both the Hillary Clinton email probe and the Russia investigation.

MANAFORT PUT IN JAIL BY OBAMA APPOINTED JUDGE AND MUELLER’S PROSECUTOR WHO ATTENDED HILLARY’S ELECTION NIGHT PARTY

Posted on

 

Obama-appointed Federal Judge Amy Berman Jackson tossed former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort in jail by revoking his bail over alleged witness tampering.

Also, Mueller’s prosecutor who petitioned to put Paul Manafort in prison attended Hillary Clinton’s election night party. The Democrat collusion continues.

 

 

The Gateway Pundit:

In 2017 Judge Jackson dismissed the wrongful death suit against Hillary Clinton filed by two of the families who lost loved ones in Benghazi. The families argued that Clinton had done little to help their sons and then lied to cover it up.

The Mueller prosecutor who petitioned Judge Jackson to throw Manafort in jail attended Hillary Clinton’s election night party.

Special counsel Robert Mueller’s right-hand man, Andrew Weissmann, was accused of using “corrupt legal practices,” and withholding evidence in a previous case involving the Colombo crime family, reported Fox News contributor Sara A. Carter

“FAKE LAW”: INDICTED RUSSIAN COMPANY CALLS MUELLER a “fake law, which is much more dangerous than fake news”

Posted on

  •  A lawyer for indicted Russian company calls Mueller “unlawfully appointed” and accuses him of chasing a “make-believe electioneering case.” 
  • “In short, fake law, which is much more dangerous than fake news,”
  • Mueller’s plan would include barring any of the defendants from reviewing the evidence found until they appear before a U.S. court

 

( CNBC ) A Russian company indicted for allegedly funding attempts to meddle in the 2016 presidential election tore into special counsel Robert Mueller Thursday, calling him “unlawfully appointed” and accusing him of chasing a “make-believe electioneering case.”

The searing court document was filed in response to Mueller’s request that a judge grant certain protections to the mountain of evidence in that case.

A lawyer for Concord Management and Consulting urged the judge to deny Mueller’s request and submitted a different proposal to be considered.

Concord is one of three Russian entities and 13 Russian people accused by the special counsel of breaking the law in order to interfere with U.S. elections.

That lawyer argued that Mueller’s proposal was “unprecedented” in its breadth and was based on irrelevant legal precedent.

“In short, fake law, which is much more dangerous than fake news,” Concord’s lawyer said.

Mueller’s plan would include barring any of the defendants from reviewing the evidence found until they appear before a U.S. court.

In that request, Mueller also warned that “uncharged individuals and entities” are still engaging in election interference operations.

MUELLER FILES NEW SUPERSEDING INDICTMENT AGAINST PAUL MANAFORT – STILL NOTHING TO DO WITH COLLUSION

Posted on Updated on

 

Special Counsel Robert Mueller secured yet another indictment against former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort Friday, adding obstruction of justice charges based on the same “witness tampering” Mueller’s prosecutors alleged Monday in a motion to have Manafort’s bail revoked.

The only new information that comes to light with Friday’s indictment is the confirmation of the identity of the second person Mueller’s prosecutors accuse of contacting the employees of a public relations firm “in an effort to influence their testimony and to otherwise conceal evidence.” That man is Konstantin Kilimnik, an employee of Manafort’s consulting firm who, together with Manafort, represented pro-Russian former Ukrainian President Victor Yanukovych.

An Atlantic profile earlier this week portrays Kilimnik as Manafort’s long-time “aide-de-camp” in Eastern Europe. Moreover, several court documents filed by Mueller’s prosecutors refer to Kilimnik as having “ties” to Russian intelligence organizations. “Or to put it even more bluntly than Mueller: Donald Trump’s campaign chairman had a pawn of Russian intelligence as his indispensable alter ego,” the Atlantic’s Franklin Foer wrote Wednesday.

Kilimnik is not known to reside in the United States.

The new indictment contains no allegations involving Kilimnik’s alleged ties to Russian intelligence. It merely restates the accusations first unveiled Monday against him and Manafort, transferring the allegations of witness tampering from a violation of the terms of Manafort’s bail to two counts of obstruction of justice against both him and Kilimnik.

MUELLER FALLS APART! NO SURVEILLANCE EVIDENCE OF MANAFORT COMMUNICATING WITH RUSSIANS – SAYS MANAFORT’S LAWYER

  • Paul Manafort’s lawyer, Kevin Downing ,  specifically asked the Mueller team for any such surveillance evidence during mandatory evidence discovery.
  • Mr. Mueller’s prosecutors answered that they had none.
  • Prosecutors risk having charges dismissed if they fail to comply with discovery rules.
  • “The special counsel has not produced any materials to the defense — no tapes, notes, transcripts or any other material evidencing surveillance or intercepts of communications between Mr. Manafort and Russian intelligence officials, Russian government officials [or any other foreign officials],” Mr. Downing’s filing said. “The Office of Special Counsel has advised that there are no materials responsive to the request.”

 

By Rowan Scarborough – The Washington Times – Sunday, May 27, 2018

No narrative is more at the heart of the Democrats’ and media’s TrumpRussia collusion charges than reports that Paul Manafort regularly communicated with Moscow during the 2016 campaign.

Now, that narrative has all but collapsed, according to an examination of the year-old official public record.

The allegations:

Christopher Steele’s Democratic Party-financed dossier said Mr. Manafort worked with Russia to coordinate the hacking of Democratic Party computers.

In addition, a number of media reports last year claimed that Mr. Manafort, Mr. Trump’s erstwhile campaign manager, sought Russia’s help to bolster his candidate. U.S. surveillance captured the collusion in copious amounts of phone records, the stories said.

CNN declared in September: “Special counsel Robert Mueller’s team, which is leading the investigation into Russia’s involvement in the election, has been provided details of these communications.”

But that and similar reports seemed to be dashed by Kevin Downing, Mr. Manafort’s attorney. He filed a brief in U.S. District Court subject to an accuracy review by a federal judge. In a cut-and-dried manner, he said Mr. Mueller has no evidence that Mr. Manafort communicated with Russian officials.

Mr. Downing is defending Mr. Manafort against federal charges that he laundered money paid by Ukrainian politicians and failed to pay income taxes.

In his filing, Mr. Downing said he specifically asked the Mueller team for any such surveillance evidence during mandatory evidence discovery. Mr. Mueller’s prosecutors answered that they had none. Prosecutors risk having charges dismissed if they fail to comply with discovery rules.

“The special counsel has not produced any materials to the defense — no tapes, notes, transcripts or any other material evidencing surveillance or intercepts of communications between Mr. Manafort and Russian intelligence officials, Russian government officials [or any other foreign officials],” Mr. Downing’s filing said. “The Office of Special Counsel has advised that there are no materials responsive to the request.”

Mr. Downing called the CNN report and others an “elaborate hoax.”

The CNN report said: “Some of the intelligence collected includes communications that sparked concerns among investigators that Manafort had encouraged the Russians to help with the campaign, according to three sources familiar with the investigation.”

In August 2017, the cable news channel said: “CNN has learned that investigators became more suspicious when they turned up intercepted communications that U.S. intelligence agencies collected among suspected Russian operatives discussing their efforts to work with Manafort, who served as campaign chairman for three months, to coordinate information that could damage Hillary Clinton’s election prospects, the U.S. officials say. The suspected operatives relayed what they claimed were conversations with Manafort, encouraging help from the Russians.”

Again, Mr. Mueller, according to Mr. Downing, has asserted to him that prosecutors have no such material.

The New York Times has reported repeatedly that the government owns intercepts of Mr. Manafort and other Trump aides talking to Russians.
