Devin Nunes sounds the alarm over Mueller hearing as John McCabe describes what will happen

 

 

Devin Nunes has been sounding the alarm regarding the upcoming Mueller hearings all week. Why the delay? He suggests that behind the scenes Mueller’s little elves have been hard at work setting up the Committees to do the most damage.

Interesting, at the same time this week, the notorious John McCabe has been making his rounds as well prescribing methods for the committee to be successful. Let’s connect these dots.

 

But appearing on Fox News Wednesday night, Nunes advised caution:

I really expect the worst, because Bob Mueller does not have to show up. So he’s doing this on his own free will. That tells me the last time he operated on his own free will, everybody forgets, (Attorney General William) Barr came out with a memo, was very clear about the decisions that he had made, and then a few days later, Mueller decided on his own to go out and hold a nine minute press conference.

So I am very concerned, and I think we should expect the worst because he only has to say a couple things and the rest of the media — not saying you here at Fox, but 90 percent of the media will take one little phrase and run with it and try to run towards impeachment.

Earlier this week, on Monday night, Nunes told Fox News’s Sean Hannity he believes Mueller is “back-channeling” — working with Democrats to “create a narrative” for his July 24th hearings.

Nunes on Wednesday called the Mueller report a “joke.”

Nunes expresses his same concerns again here with the upcoming Mueller hearing on ‘The Story with Martha MacCallum,’

McCabe affirmed that: “with Mueller’s experience, Trump’s impeachment is only time”

McCabe said one of the more frustrating things [for Democrats and anti-Trumpers] is that Mueller did not say whether Trump would have been charged with obstruction if he were a private citizen instead of the president.

“So if that’s the place that Congress wants to get to, there are many, many ways they can get very close to that,” McCabe said.

“The report outlines at least ten different categories of obstructive activity. In eight of those 10 categories, director Mueller concluded there was significant evidence to support each of the three elements of the offense.

“Were I Congress, I would pick the top three or four areas that they think are most impactful and go through a very deliberate series of questions to get Director Mueller to talk about the evidence that supports each of those elements of the crime.”

Host John Berman asked McCabe what he thinks Mueller would say if he’s asked, “Does DOJ typically seek to convict subjects of obstruction with evidence like this?””I think he’d have to say yes,” McCabe replied. “He is a prosecutor by background. He brought cases, tried cases in federal court.

“If you walk him through the evidence on one particular act of obstruction — say, was there an obstructive act, and he describes one; you say, was there a nexus to a proceeding and he describes it; say, was there intent, and he describes the evidence; and then pose that question to him, it’s going to be very hard for him to say that in similar circumstances a person confronting that sort of evidence wouldn’t be charged with obstruction.”

Here McCabe makes the rounds with another CNN panel almost verbatim to Berman’s interview:

Recall:

Schiff hires more lawyers in unrelenting effort to find Trump guilty of crimes

I suggest it would be wise that we not let our guard down. The Deep State is not done with Trump by a long shot. They want to dirty up the President and get a complicit Judge or two to set some traps as the election cycle heats up.

Keep your eye out on the name Catherine Hicks.

Other than that all is well in the swamp.

Jeffrey Epstein Deposition: Attorney asks about his ‘small endowment’

 

Put this down as a long week for this blogger…..and thus excuse me if I offend anyone. I just could not resist this for a Saturday post. Just when it couldn’t get anymore bizarre this comes along. Put this one down in category humor.

WARNING   WARNING  WARNING  – very graphic and disturbing.

 

Local attorney Spencer Kuvin [during] a deposition Sept. 2 [2009], asked Epstein [about his small endowment] and Epstein walked out — 100 seconds after it started. And it was all caught on the video above.

 

 

Is it true sir, that ah, you have what’s been described as an egg-shaped penis?”

[Unintelligible].

“Sir, according to the police department’s probably cause affidavit one witness described your penis as oval shaped and claimed when erect, it was thick toward the bottom but thin and small towards the head portion. And called it egg shaped. Those are not my words, I apologize…”

And that’s when Epstein decided to call it a day. Nice guy, huh?

After an objection from his attorney, Mike Pike, and another attempt from Kuvin, Epstein took off his microphone and left.

It cost the Wall Street prodigy Epstein: He was fined $800 by the West Palm Beach court currently hearing civil lawsuits filed by women whom Epstein paid for sex when they were underage.

While Epstein claims he never even met several of his accusers, they painted a not-so-pretty picture of Epsteins junk to prove he exposed himself. It absolutely was an important question, said Kuvin. If he claims to have never met them, then we should know whether the victim is telling the truth.

Kuvin represents a suburban girl who, at 15, was enticed to visit Epsteins Palm Beach home under the pretense she would receive $200 to massage the man. But the massage allegedly turned into much more until the girl allegedly walked out in disgust. She is now in college. The deposition had been reset for Oct. 8, and Epstein should have expected the same question.

Dershowitz’s sexual allegations against him and his strange Laura Ingraham interview

 

The Dershowitz interview by Laura Ingraham last night was strangely odd and peculiar to say the least as he attempted to defend himself against sexual allegations. The high point came early, and his continued filibustering didn’t add to any credibility  .. comments made:

Dershowitz is usually very confident but he looks very shaky here. He says Bill Clinton was never on Epstein’s Island …? He’s was on the flight manifest 26x…Cmon man.

Wow Alan said he met Epstein through lady Rothschild. Like that added credibility to his statement.

Oddly, Laura dove deep to try and save Dershowitz, and got him to change the topic to Al Gore, as it looked like Dershowitz was ready and willing to continue to shill for his old pal Bill. After all, he got Epstein off with a sweetheart deal years ago. It was a rambling effort by Alan to confront the demon chasing him, but as the saying goes “I think he doth protest too much.”

Anyway, good fun all around knowing there are at least a lot of people sweating as to where this is all going to go with Epstein’s little Black Book.

The Potomac Two Step – See How They Dance

 

The Potomac Two Step

by Mustang

The Washington metropolitan area is awash in swamp critters, but they are a talented lot … success there depends on one’s ability to perform the Potomac Two Step, which I define as the ability to enrich self while keeping off the opposition’s radar, by which I mean to say out of jail. 

Since investigations are often politically motivated, it pays to know how to dance.  Raines and Gorelick are excellent dancers; they are but two of a very long list of artful critters and are a couple of examples of just how the dance works.

Frank Delano Raines
Former Fannie Mae Chief Executive Officer

Franklin Delano Raines (known as Frank) served as Bill Clinton’s OMB director (1996-1998) having previously served at the OMB as an associate director under Jimmy Carter and as the guru in charge of Carter’s Democratic Policy efforts. 

In between these two presidents, Raines served as Vice Chairman of the Federal National Mortgage Association (known as Fannie Mae).  He returned to FNMA as CEO after Clinton where he earned a surprisingly high salary and bonuses.

The problem is not that a black fellow made good within the confines of our capitalist system, it is that Raines (and others) are political insiders who seem able to secure well-paying jobs within Government Sponsored Enterprises (GSEs) and then milk these positions for all they’re worth. 

Speaking of golden parachutes, Raines took an early retirement once he learned that he was the subject of an investigation by the Securities and Exchange Commission involving “accounting irregularities.”  What were these irregularities?  Oh … well, shifting FNMA losses so that senior executives (such as himself) could earn large bonuses.

In 2006, the Office of Federal Housing Enterprise Oversight sued Raines to recover the $90 million he received from doctoring company performance records. 

At the end of the day, Raines and two others were ordered to pay fines totaling $3-million (fines actually paid by FNMA’s insurance policies), and Raines agreed to give up $1.8-millions of his FNMA stocks (stocks that had no appreciable value) and an additional $5.3 millions in other benefits related to his pension and forgone bonuses … all of which is little more than pocket change to someone paid $90-millions in salaries and bonuses. 

Some might call this fraud, but Raines maintained that he broke no laws and today happily resides somewhere in a mostly-white, well-protected neighborhood.

Jamie S. Gorelick a former Deputy Attorney General for the Department of Justice

And then there is Jamie S. Gorelick who has had an amazing streak of good luck working for the government as part of the Democratic Party.  She served in the Clinton administration (1994-1997), worked as a partner in the mega-sized law firm Wilmer Cutler Pickering Hale and Door (2003- ), and serves as one of the board of directors at Amazon (2012-present). 

She also served on British Petroleum’s Advisory Council (2010-) and served on the National Commission on Terrorist Attacks Upon the United States —attacks that were partly possible due to decisions Gorelick made as Deputy Attorney General (now disputed, however … presumably because it benefits Gorelick and the Democratic Party to spin her role in opening up the United States to attack).

One interesting aspect of her resume is the fact that despite having no previous training or experience in financial management, Gorelick obtained an appointment to serve as Vice Chair of the Federal National Mortgage Association (Fannie Mae), serving there between 1997 (exit from Clinton Administration) to 2003 (serving alongside Franklin Delano Raines when FNMA developed its $10-billion accounting “error.”) 

In 1998, Gorelick received an executive bonus of around $780,000; over the next four years, Gorelick received more than $26-million in income and bonuses from FNMA —which isn’t bad considering her lack of training in financial management).  Note: who succeeded Gorelick as Deputy Attorney General?  Eric Holder, of course.

And the two step continues…….

 

Eric Holder and Robert Mueller

 

BONUS:

There are reports that President Obama is considering former Clinton administration official Jamie Gorelick as a possible candidate to be the next chief of the FBI….

Other than that, all is well in the swamp.

Jeffrey Epstein was an informant for Mueller’s FBI – Was that the basis of the sweetheart deal?

Before we demand that Labor Secretary Alex Acosta to be fired and thrown under the bus for giving Epstein a “sweetheart deal,” it might be worth taking the time to review the history of what the FBI was up to with Epstein. Mueller was head of the FBI at the time.

Alexander Acosta

We may never know what for sure the FBI wanted out of him, but we do know he was an informant. Interesting that I read that Ken Starr was involved in the plea deal. Let’s hear from Acosta what the goods were and the deal.

UPDATE: Acosta Resigns.

Ward writes:

He’d cut the non-prosecution deal with one of Epstein’s attorneys because he had “been told” to back off, that Epstein was above his pay grade. “I was told Epstein ‘belonged to intelligence’ and to leave it alone,” he told his interviewers in the Trump transition, who evidently thought that was a sufficient answer and went ahead and hired Acosta. (The Labor Department had no comment when asked about this.)

Wait, what?

Back to the post:

First, going to my old stash:

Was Lolita Express Jeffrey Epstein an informant for Mueller’s FBI?

From the 5/24/18 FBI Vault release: “Epstein has also provided information to the FBI as agree upon.” Is that why he escaped serious charges for molesting over twenty girls?

Ed: At the time of the post, all pages of the FBI files were in black ink and mostly blank. It now lists 28 parts, but at the time of my posting there were only 8 listed below.

Perhaps Attorney General Barr could release these? Oh right, Barr has recused himself, pulling another Jeff Sessions. This of course leaves the SD of New York on its own. Surprise! Comey’s daughter will be one of the Prosecutors -Anyone want to bet her speciality will be to dig up any dirt on Trump?

Attorney General William Barr may have oversight over U.S. attorneys in New York, but he has announced that he is recusing himself from the Jeffrey Epstein case. (Believe his reason/excuse at our own peril.)

UPDATE: Earlier reports suggested that he would be recusing himself. But he’s only recusing himself from review of the 2008 plea because that involved Kirkland Ellis lawyers. (Which means we will never know how the FBI was involved, crimes and Acosta will be left out to dry. Better than nothing I guess.)

Via NY Post

After consulting Justice Department ethics officials, Attorney General William Barr will not recuse himself from overseeing the sex-trafficking case of billionaire Jeffrey Epstein in New York, according to reports.

This is what is called a FBI “heavily redacted” file on Epstein.

Here is one theory of why he got the sweetheart deal:

Jeffrey Epstein Became a Government Informant as Part of Sweetheart Plea Deal so reads the Daily Beast back in November of 2018

In exchange for a sweetheart plea deal that buried dozens of allegations by underage girls of sexual abuse at his Palm Beach, Florida, mansion, disgraced hedge-fund manager Jeffrey Epstein provided federal investigators with “unspecified information,” according to records cited in a Tuesday (2018) report from the Miami Herald

…”But as part of that deal, according to records cited by the Herald, Epstein provided “valuable consideration”—in other words, critical information—to federal investigators. There’s no direct evidence of what that information was, but records show that at around the same time, Epstein was considered to be a crucial witness during the trial of two Bear Stearns executives who faced allegations of corporate securities fraud during the 2008 financial crisis.”

As part of my 2018 post I included:

Lolita Express: Clinton’s Secret Service agent threatens damaging info on former president: Former Agent Dan Bongino is a Fox regular.

So Dan…time to spill.

Pilot logs say Bill Clinton on Lolita Express had underage girls UPDATE

 

Wow and double wow. It would be so nice if at least we could nail one Clinton. I’ll take Bill. What an interview.. Pilot logs no less.

Sarnoff said that ALMOST EVERY TIME that Clinton was on the plane via the pilot logs there were underage girls on the plane.

Well, this should shut up Hillary for awhile…..

Conchita said Clinton refused her request for an interview.

She also said BILL CLINTON IS LYING about his limited contact with Jeffrey Epstein.

During their discussion Sarnoff told Shannon Bream that Bill Clinton flew on the Lolita Express 27 times.

Flashback: It’s Hillary Clinton & Democrats that deploy tanks that kill Americans

 

Hillary Clinton and her fellow democrats are offended at the sight of a tank? It was she it was reported that ordered tanks and poisonous gas turned onto her fellow citizens in a little town called Waco, Texas.

 

Her latest twitter:
@HillaryClinton

 

We need a strong national defense, but a president shouldn’t need it next to him in a parade to show his patriotism.

 

On April 19, 1993, the F.B.I. finished off its siege of the Branch Davidians’ home just outside Waco, Texas, by pumping poisonous and flammable C.S. gas into a room filled with women and children, driving a tank through the wall, throwing incendiary devices at the survivors.

 

 

Thank the Democrats and Bill and Hillary Clinton.

 

 

Kids murdered in the Waco slaughter

 

Surly there was a better way than to slaughter men, women and children- more than 80. And the Clinton’s managed to get by without any MSM condemnation, blaming it all on his Attorney General who got by without a nick and later ran for Governor of Florida.

Waco and Ruby Ridge are what were the sentinel moments in our nation’s conscience. A Government could turn on its people. The story of the shadowy figure called Hillary Clinton and her role in all of this is included.

 

 

The Waco siege was a siege of a compound belonging to the religious group Branch Davidians by American federal and Texas state law enforcement and military between February 28 and April 19, 1993.

The group was suspected of weapons violations and a search and arrest warrant was obtained by the ATF. The incident began when the ATF attempted to raid the ranch. An intense gun battle erupted, resulting in the deaths of four agents and six Branch Davidians.

Upon the ATF’s failure to raid the compound, a siege was initiated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), the standoff lasting 51 days. Eventually, the FBI launched an assault and initiated a tear gas attack in an attempt to force the Branch Davidians out. During the attack, a fire engulfed Mount Carmel Center and 76 people.

According to Linda Tripp it was Hillary and not Bill Clinton who directed the final assault on Waco.

Mrs Clinton grew more and more impatient as the Waco stand-off came to dominate the headlines during the early months of the Clinton administration, said Bell. It was she, according to Bell’s sources, who pressured a reluctant Janet Reno to act.

“Give me a reason not to do this,” Reno is said to have begged aides shortly before orders were issued for the final assault.

During an interview in early February 2001 the former White House aide alleged that Hillary Clinton pressured the late Vincent Foster to resolve the Waco standoff. As a result more than eighty men, women and children were killed. Appearing on CNN’s “Larry King Live” Tripp suggested that Foster, at Mrs Clinton’s direction, transmitted the order to move on the Branch Davidian’s Waco compound, which culminated in a military style attack on the wooden building.

Her accusations lend weight to charges made previously by Special Forces expert and Waco investigator, Steve Barry. According to the former Special Forces member, Hillary set up a special “crises centre” in the White House to deal with Waco.

Serving with her in the centre was Vincent Foster who, according to his widow was subsequently: “fueled by horror at the carnage at Waco for which the White House had ultimately been responsible.”

Foster himself was found dead, from a gun-shot wound to the head, in a Virginia park three months later. Could he have known too much about Waco?

Journalist Ambrose Evans-Pritchard maintains that Foster had been “drafting a letter involving Waco” on the very day of his death. Moreover Evans-Pritchard says that Foster kept a Waco file in a locked cabinet that was off limits to everyone, including his secretary.

Prior to Waco, Foster was “dignified, decent, caring, smart” says Linda Tripp; in its aftermath though, she said: “…Vince was falling apart.”

She was with the former White House deputy counsel when the news about Waco broke on television. “A special bulletin came on showing the atrocity at Waco and the children. And his face, his whole body slumped, and his face turned white, and he was absolutely crushed – knowing the part he had played.”

“And he had played the part at Mrs Clinton direction,” said Tripp.

Moreover there was a marked contrast between Foster’s heartfelt emotion at the Waco tragedy and Hillary Clinton’s, Tripp insists: “Her reaction was heartless”.

Her accusations give further weight to allegations first levelled in the 1999 documentary on the deadly confrontation, “Waco: A New Revelation.” The film featured the account of former House Waco investigator T. March Bell.

“One of the interesting things that happens in an investigation is that you get anonymous phone calls,” Bell explained in the film. “And we in fact received anonymous phone calls from Justice Department managers and attorneys who believe that pressure was placed on Janet Reno by Webb Hubbel, pressure that came from the first lady of the United States.”

Mrs Clinton grew more and more impatient as the Waco stand-off came to dominate the headlines during the early months of the Clinton administration, said Bell. It was she, according to Bell’s sources, who pressured a reluctant Janet Reno to act.

“Give me a reason not to do this,” Reno is said to have begged aides shortly before orders were issued for the final assault.
