MUELLER’S SECRET? D.C. FED COURT HAS 35 CASES OF SEALED INDICTMENTS FILED SINCE OCTOBER 27

Posted on

 

 

Since October 27, there are 35 SEALED indictments filed in Washingon D.C. federal court – the same court that is hearing the criminal cases concerning former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort and his aide Rick Gates. The Gates and Manafort cases also began as sealed indictments before they were unsealed by a judge when Gates and Manafort surrendered to the FBI on October 30.

 

LawNewz.com verified that there are currently 34 cases that have been filed under seal in U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia between the dates of October 27th (when Manafort was indicted) and today’s date. While the sealed cases are certainly interesting to note, they may not be tied to Special Counsel Robert Mueller‘s investigation of possible ties between the Trump campaign and the Russian government.

 

 

 

 

TRUMP PRIVATELY BLAMES JARED KUSHNER FOR MUELLER’S INDICTMENTS, IVANKA GAVE PRES ULTIMATUM TO FIRE COREY LEWANDOWSKI

Posted on Updated on

 

  • Trump blamed Jared Kushner for his role in decisions, specifically the firings of [former National Security Adviser] Mike Flynn and [former FBI Director] James Comey, that led to Mueller’s appointment
  • Ivanka reportedly gave her father an ultimatum to fire campaign manager Corey Lewandowski
  • Kushner, along with his wife Ivanka Trump, pushed Trump to hire Paul Manafort

 

On a phone call Tuesday with Breitbart News Executive Chairman and former White House Chief Strategist Stephen K. Bannon, “Trump blamed Jared Kushner for his role in decisions, specifically the firings of [former National Security Adviser] Mike Flynn and [former FBI Director] James Comey, that led to Mueller’s appointment,” according to a source who was briefed on the call.

On Monday, Mueller indicted Trump’s former campaign chair Paul Manafort on 12 counts — ranging from making false statements to “conspiracy against the United States” — as part of the ongoing, so-called “Russia Investigation.” Richard Gates, Manafort’s deputy, was also charged.

The New York Times reported that Kushner, along with his wife Ivanka Trump, also pushed Trump to hire Manafort, who was needed to fill the spot of Trump’s initial campaign manager, Corey Lewandowski, after Ivanka reportedly gave her father an ultimatum to fire him.

While Mueller’s charges bear no immediate connection to Trump or his campaign, Sherman reports that everyone in the West Wing “is freaking out,” with advisers “on edge,” “doing whatever they can not to be ensnared.”

“One person close to Dina Powell and Gary Cohn said they’re making sure to leave rooms if the subject of Russia comes up.”

TRUMP: PAPADOPOULOS IS YOUNG, LOW-LEVEL VOLUNTEER AND A LIAR

Posted on

 

President Trump has tweets about George Papadopoulos, the former low-level unheard of volunteer and foreign policy foreign adviser for Greece ( not Russia ) arrested by Mueller not because of Russia collusion but because of lying to FBI about timing.

President Trump:

  • Few people knew the young, low level volunteer named George, who has already proven to be a liar. Check the DEMS!
  • The Fake News is working overtime. As Paul Manaforts lawyer said, there was “no collusion” and events mentioned took place long before he came to the campaign.

  • Manafort’s answer: “We need someone to communicate that DT is not doing these trips.”
  • April 26, 2016, Russian Professor told Papadopoulos that he (the Prof) had just learned that top Russian-government officials had obtained “dirt” on Hillary Clinton. The dirt is said to include “thousands of emails” — “emails of Clinton.”
  • Papadopoulos was brought in to branch out relations to Greece, NOT Russia.

( Daily Caller ) Democratic lobbyist Tony Podesta is stepping down from his lobbying firm Monday after becoming a subject of investigation by special counsel Robert Mueller.

Podesta announced his decision to leave The Podesta Group during a firm-wide meeting Monday morning and is alerting clients of his impending departure, Politico reported.

The lobbyist’s exit comes as former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort and his business associate, Rick Gates, were indicted in a federal court Monday on 12 counts, including conspiracy to launder money, conspiracy against the United States, and making false and misleading statements.

Podesta and The Podesta Group’s involvement in Ukrainian politics is also complicating the situation. Mueller expanded the investigation to focus on Podesta and his Democratic-leaning lobbying firm with connections to Hillary Clinton, sources told NBC in an Oct. 24 report.

Manafort turned himself in to the FBI field office in Washington, D.C., Monday morning.

PETER KING WANTS MUELLER TO ANSWER CONGRESS THE 2009 URANIUM ONE DEAL OBAMA SIGNED WHILE UNDERGOING FBI BRIBERY PROBE

Posted on Updated on

 

NY Rep. Peter King said Sunday on Fox News that Robert Mueller, who was FBI director from 2001-2013, has some questions to answer about the deal that saw a Russian state-controlled company buy Uranium One, a company that controlled 20 percent of American uranium reserves.

“Bob Mueller should come forward to the Congress and explain how he addresses [the deal] because it’s not only a question whether or not the Clintons, what involvement they had with uranium,” King said, “but it’s also the fact he was head of the FBI at a time we’ve been told an investigation is being conducted by the FBI as to bribery and collusion involving the Russians and yet, this was approved the Cabinet and the treasury secretary, secretary of state and the president.”

“Did the FBI notify the administration the Obama administration at the time this investigation was ongoing and all of the allegations are being made and, if so what was done and if they didn’t, why not?”

 

 

FIRST CHARGES FILED IN RUSSIA PROBE BY WITCH HUNT COUNSEL ROBERT MUELLER

Posted on

( WSJ ) At least one person was charged Friday in connection with Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s criminal investigation into alleged Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election, according to people familiar with the matter.

That person could be taken into custody as soon as Monday, these people said. The number and identity of the defendants, and the charges, couldn’t be determined.

A spokesman for Mr. Mueller, Peter Carr, declined to comment. The news of the charges, marking the first in Mr. Mueller’s investigation, was reported by CNN on Friday.

 

Appointed in May, Mr. Mueller and his team of prosecutors and Federal Bureau of Investigation agents have been examining alleged Russian efforts to influence last year’s election and whether President Donald Trump’s campaign or Mr. Trump’s associates colluded with the Kremlin.

Moscow has denied seeking to influence the election, and Mr. Trump has vigorously disputed allegations of collusion. The Republican president has called Mr. Mueller’s inquiry a “witch hunt.”
