Former FBI Mueller: I have to check to see if Obama can kill citizens on U.S. soil

 

News comes that Eric Holder is considering running for President in 2020. Let’s have a refresher as to what that might mean for good red bloodied Americans. So let’s go back to circa 2012. First a short clip of Holder now:

 

 

FBI has as the Director one Robert Mueller. The Department of Justice has as the Attorney general one Eric Holder. Consider the risk of connecting these two together once again. Later let’s add a Comey to the mix.

FBI Director Robert Mueller on Wednesday said he would have to go back and check with the Department of Justice whether Attorney General Eric Holder’s “three criteria” for the targeted killing of Americans also applied to Americans inside the U.S.

Pressed by House lawmakers about a recent speech in which Holder described the legal justification for assassination, Mueller, who was attending a hearing on his agency’s budget, did not say without qualification that the three criteria could not be applied inside the U.S.

“I have to go back. Uh, I’m not certain whether that was addressed or not,” Mueller said when asked by Rep. Tom Graves, R-Ga., about a distinction between domestic and foreign targeting. Graves followed up asking whether “from a historical perspective,” the federal government has “the ability to kill a U.S. citizen on United States soil or just overseas.”

“I’m going to defer.

“Holder’s new definition of ‘due process’ was perfectly Orwellian,” Turley wrote. “What Holder is describing is a model of an imperial presidency that would have made Richard Nixon blush. …

“Where due process once resided, Holder offered only an assurance that the president would kill citizens with care. While that certainly relieved any concern that Obama would hunt citizens for sport, Holder offered no assurances on how this power would be used in the future beyond the now all-too-familiar ‘trust us’ approach to civil liberties of this administration,” he wrote. More Here

Comey: Citizens Should Have No Secrets That The Government Can’t Access 

The latest sign of this stealth takeover of civil rights and freedom was epitomized in recent Senate testimony by FBI Director James Comey, who voiced his objections to civilian use of encryption to protect personal data – information the government has no automatic right to obtain.

As reported by The New American, Comey testified that he believes the government’s spy and law enforcement agencies should have unfettered access to everything Americans may store or send in electronic format: On computer hard drives, in so-called i-clouds, in email and in text messaging – for our own safety and protection. Like many in government today, Comey believes that national security is more important than constitutional privacy protections or, apparently, due process.

Tony Podesta given Immunity by Mueller, Paul Manafort rots in jail for same crime

 

This week we learn that dirty cop Robert Mueller granted immunity to Tony Podesta who committed the same exact crimes as Paul Manafort.

Today Manafort sits in isolation in a prison cell.

Tony Podesta will walk free.

The Democrat Deep State has turned America into a banana republic.

 

Did anyone really think that the Podesta investigation was going to go somewhere? What I find interesting is that so far Tony is getting off the hook, but John is equally dirty if not more so. However first reports said that Mueller was going to hand out five immunities. Betcha John will get off the hook as well.

Earlier report:

At long last, the Podesta Group, the lobbying firm owned by the Democratic lobbyist Tony Podesta, the brother of John Podesta, is being investigated by the FBI. Co-founded by John Podesta, the Podesta Group has deep ties to the Clinton Foundation, a verifiably criminal enterprise which may be the most extensive crime network in Washington. The bad news is the investigation is being led by Special Counsel Robert Mueller. The investigation developed from a probe by Mueller looking into the finances of Trump campaign finance manager, Paul Manafort.

 

White House visitor logs reveal that Tony Podesta visited Clinton 114 times during the Obama administration. He has given “special access” to the Obama presidential team by his brother, John Podesta. In a 2015 interview with Fareed Zakaria of CNN, Obama admitted that he and his administration had made a deal which secured the Ukrainian coup which took place in 2014.

Now, connections between Clinton, Podesta, and Russia are receiving much-needed light, as Mueller’s misguided probe into the Trump campaign leaves his intended targets smelling like roses.

Podesta’s work was a key component of the secret lobbying done during the 2016 presidential campaign led by Democrats to remove sanctions on Russia’s second largest bank.

In 2016, two Russian banks spent over $700,000 on Washington lobbyists seeking to end the U.S. sanctions, according to the Department of Justice.

The Podesta Group charged the Russian bank $20,000 each month, not including expenses, on a deal from March through September 2016 according to the Daily Caller.

The main sticking point for the Podestas is the fact that they were making deals that would affect the election process in the Ukraine and they were doing so without the proper licensing and authorization. That is to say, they were colluding with Russians to influence the result of an election.

Epic Battle – Marie Bartiromo vs John Podesta over his Russia links

 

 

Still not enough?– Bunk gives you a couple more:

Earlier Bunkerville posts:  

A link in the post catches us up: Russian Government Initiative Gave Millions to Clinton Foundation

 

The Daily Caller has previously reported on Podesta’s direct and indirect links with murky Russian-based firms. The Podesta Group that he and his brother founded in 1988 has lobbied on behalf of firms with links to the Kremlin – including Uranium One, which now controls one-fifth of the U.S. uranium supply.

Podesta has always maintained that he transferred his 75,000 shares from Joule Unlimited Technologies, a Kremlin-financed energy company, to an “anonymous” holding company named Leonidio Holdings. Not only does Leonidio share an address with Podesta’s daughter, Rouse, but they share a tax return.

The other beneficiaries are all in the family too.

And these two fine fellows will ride off into the sunset, never to see the light of day in a court room.

 

 

Mueller makes up non-existent employees, don’t work for them say Russian Defense

 

And you want to know who the Mueller’s wench woman is that is prosecuting the Russians?

At one point, the Mueller attorney, former Clinton Foundation attorney Jeannie Rhee stated that there is “1.5 to 2 terabytes of data, covering hundreds of facilities that compromise the defendant’s operational accounts” provided to the courts.

It turns out that the ‘facilities’ that Clinton supporting Rhee was referring to were actually just social media accounts.

What a Sideshow — The Mueller Case Is Falling Apart

Lawyers defending the Russian company Concord Management indicted by the corrupt Mueller team again called out Mueller’s liberal hacks and labeled their allegations as “made up” nonsense.

As reported on Wednesday, Concord Management’s lawyers revealed that Mueller’s team of 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 that 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 we were influenced by these posts?

Now we have more information on the hearing. At one point, the Mueller attorney, former Clinton Foundation attorney Jeannie Rhee stated that there is “1.5 to 2 terabytes of data, covering hundreds of facilities that compromise the defendant’s operational accounts” provided to the courts.

It turns out that the ‘facilities’ that Clinton supporting Rhee was referring to were actually just social media accounts.

Mueller may have very dirty hands with link to Russian Oligarch

The take away from this bombshell report that takes more than 300 words to explain. This is what I got from Hannity and Laura Ingraham last night. First the Cliff-Notes edition.

Mueller had asked this Russian oligarch to try to free Levinson a FBI agent held by Iran. Spent his own $25 Million. At last-minute, Hillary backs down while the plane was on the tarmac to retrieve him.

Oligarch banned from the United States except for one visit at a time. FBI goes back to the oligarch and suggests that Trump and Russia are in collusion. Essentially offers him to “keep an open mind” whether Trump was involved with Russians. Oligarch says no way was Trump involved.

Take away could be that if the Russian “kept an open mind” he may no longer be banned from the United States. Read the post at The Hill for the full story that reads like a B spy novel.

I found one clip of Hannity last night which tells a small piece of it.

…..But there’s one episode even Mueller’s former law enforcement comrades — and independent ethicists — acknowledge raises legitimate legal issues and a possible conflict of interest in his overseeing the Russia election probe.

In 2009, when Mueller ran the FBI, the bureau asked Russian oligarch Oleg Deripaska to spend millions of his own dollars funding an FBI-supervised operation to rescue a retired FBI agent, Robert Levinson, captured in Iran while working for the CIA in 2007.

Yes, that’s the same Deripaska who has surfaced in Mueller’s current investigation and who was recently sanctioned by the Trump administration.

“Deripaska’s efforts came very close to success,” said David McGee, a former federal prosecutor who represents Levinson’s family. “We were told at one point that the terms of Levinson’s release had been agreed to by Iran and the U.S. and included a statement by then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton pointing a finger away from Iran. At the last minute, Secretary Clinton decided not to make the agreed-on statement.”

Snip…

Deripaska also appears to be one of the first Russians the FBI asked for help when it began investigating the now-infamous Fusion GPS “Steele Dossier.” Waldman, his American lawyer until the sanctions hit, gave me a detailed account, some of which U.S. officials confirm separately.

Two months before Trump was elected president, Deripaska was in New York as part of Russia’s United Nations delegation when three FBI agents awakened him in his home; at least one agent had worked with Deripaska on the aborted effort to rescue Levinson. During an hour-long visit, the agents posited a theory that Trump’s campaign was secretly colluding with Russia to hijack the U.S. election.

“Deripaska laughed but realized, despite the joviality, that they were serious,” the lawyer said. “So he told them in his informed opinion the idea they were proposing was false. ‘You are trying to create something out of nothing,’ he told them.” The agents left though the FBI sought more information in 2017 from the Russian, sources tell me. Waldman declined to say if Deripaska has been in contact with the FBI since Sept, 2016.

Flashback Saturday – Looking back at James Comey and why he was so dangerous

 

A few weeks ago I started a “Flashback Saturday”. On Saturday, a “whatever happened” to answer or review previous news I have covered and how the story has unfolded. A “Blast from the past.”

How about James Comey and now what we know about him. I will throw in a short one on Mueller.

First I need to start out with

Comey: Citizens Should Have No Secrets That The Government Can’t Access 

The latest sign of this stealth takeover of civil rights and freedom was epitomized in recent Senate testimony by FBI Director James Comey, who voiced his objections to civilian use of encryption to protect personal data – information the government has no automatic right to obtain.

Like many in government today, Comey believes that national security is more important than constitutional privacy protections or, apparently, due process.

Comey had ‘false and dangerous view’ of FBI role 

 “Independent? This is a false and dangerous view of law enforcement in the American system. Mr. Comey is describing a FBI director who essentially answers to no one. But the police powers of the government are awesome and often abused, and the only way to prevent or correct abuses is to report to elected officials who are accountable to voters.” More at Washington Examiner

Interview with Robert F. Kennedy during which he describes FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover as “dangerous” and “rather a psycho.” Sound familiar?

FBI Director: I have to check to see if Obama can kill citizens on U.S. soil January 26, 2013

FBI Director Robert Mueller on Wednesday said he would have to go back and check with the Department of Justice whether Attorney General Eric Holder’s “three criteria” for the targeted killing of Americans also applied to Americans inside the U.S.
Pressed by House lawmakers about a recent speech in which Holder described the legal justification for assassination, Mueller, who was attending a hearing on his agency’s budget, did not say without qualification that the three criteria could not be applied inside the U.S.

For an abbreviated view of what Comey has been doing with his life:

FBI James Comey, the ultimate chameleon who sold his sou  

The author of this piece makes a prescient observation regarding the Comey Ashcroft relationship back in the 1990’s when they worked together:

On the surface, it’s an odd pairing: Comey—who cites liberal theologian Reinhold Niebuhr as a formative influence, and who can sing along with Good Charlotte pop-punk hits—and Ashcroft, a reactionary born-again Christian who breaks into spirited renditions of biblical hymns. There’s little risk Comey will lose his sense of humor in his new job. It’s only his soul that’s up for grabs.

 

DOJ OIG McCabe Report: FBI and DOJ Corrupt, Dishonest, Coordinated and Conspiring .. List of Points

If you need some reading on a rainy Monday, here it is. Of course the IG report is now knocked off the radar with the Comey interview last night. What is clear is that the FBI sure was in the tank for Hillary. What is clear is that those who contributed to McCabe’s GO FUND ME page should stop payment.

 

The IG’s report related to terminated and humiliated former FBI Head Andrew McCabe is 39 pages in length. (See report here

Below is a list of the most significant points in the report –

1. In the second paragraph of the introduction of the IG’s report, now infamous cheater and Peter Strzok mistress, and McCabe’s former Special Counsel, Lisa Page, is implicated as being involved in McCabe’s crimes. (p.1)

2. Clinton Foundation was under investigation in 2016 but the FBI decided not to release this information to the public. This information was finally leaked just before the election to the Wall Street Journal and confirmed in a second leak instigated by McCabe. (p. 1)

4. The FBI hid the Clinton Foundation investigation from the public and it was not confirmed until the McCabe leak on October 30th, 2016.  The FBI decided that it was in the public interest not to share this information with Americans before the 2016 election.  The reasonableness of the decision to not report to the public the Clinton Foundation investigation is not addressed by the IG. (p. 3)

5. McCabe told Comey he didn’t know who leaked and therefore Comey claims he didn’t know about McCabe’s leak. (p. 2)

6. McCabe lied numerous times to either investigators or inspectors and said he didn’t know why Lisa Page leaked information to the Wall Street Journal. He even lied and said that he was outside of Washington D.C when the leak occurred which was not true. (p. 2) More points at  Gateway Pundit

Attorneys DiGenova and Dershowitz blast Mueller, say what needs to happen next

 

Here is an interview not to be missed. Hannity had DiGenova and Dershowitz last night discuss what Trump should do next, with both in agreement that Rosenstein needs to go, either fired or recused by Sessions. No mercy for Sessions, and the rest of the cast of characters either.There are no hostages in this take down by these two men. Unbelievable when we find out that the warrant issued against Trump’s lawyers was for an “Access Hollywood” tape. Reports are that the “National Enquirer” is also on the Feds Radar.

Fox News:

Documents related to the infamous 2005 “Access Hollywood” tape featuring President Trump’s vulgar comments about women were being sought during the FBI raid of the office and hotel room of Trump’s personal attorney earlier this week, Fox News confirmed on Wednesday.

DiGenova and Dershowitz interview start after his opening monologue and starts at the 15 minute mark. Slide over to it to start there, though Hannity does a good job setting things up.
