Welcome to the Coup d’état underway – Brennan and Democrats urge anarchy

 

Intervention of the Sabine Women

The Coup d’état is underway. Make no mistake. The Dems are creating anarchy and the rate we are going may be successful. The Kavanaugh debacle with the Democrats not even willing to give Grassley a copy of the unredacted letter written by Ford with her claims.

More scurrilous are the efforts by the Democrats to keep and support Rosenstein’s henchmen in refusing an order from Trump to totally declassify numerous documents bearing on the absurd Russia Russia Russia investigation.

Wish America luck, a few more months and it looks like we will know the answer. The GOP caving on Kavanaugh, add information withheld from the White House will do it. The topper will be losing the November election to the Dems and there will be no turning back.

Here are two excerpts that deserve the complete read.

UPDATE: Video of Brennan has been added below! How Arrogant! Not the Andrea Mitchell interview.

The combination of arrogance, hubris and desperation within a letter (pdf here) from the four Democrats on the intelligence oversight Gang of Eight, is palpable even in text format.

Legislative branch members: Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer, Adam Schiff and Mark Warner write a letter today to Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, and FBI Director Christopher Wray, demanding the executive branch cabinet members withhold information from the White House.

Perhaps more stunningly, and extra-constitutionally (meaning outside the framework of constitutional separation of power), within the jaw-dropping letter the four Democrats outline previous verbal conversations and current agreements with Coats, Rosenstein and Wray where the Cabinet officers agreed to keep information away from the White House Chief Executive, the President.

That third paragraph is particularly interesting: …”the verbal assurance you provided us that DOJ and FBI would not provide the White House“…

Now from the Communist Brennan:

Former CIA director and MSNBC contributor John Brennan called on FBI director Christopher Wray, Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats, and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein to “push back” on any directive from the White House that may have a “negative impact” on the Mueller investigation.

 

Brennan called on “individuals of conscience” in the administration to remember that they took an oath of office not an oath to Donald Trump. Moments prior Brennan admonished people who are abusing their powers to “protect” Trump.

“I think that they should continue to push, push, push, and if Mr. Tump and the White House does not relent, then they have some decisions to make, and whether or not they are going to the just not follow that direction and be fired or to resign,” Brennan said of the trio.

“A number of individuals are trying to protect Mr. Trump and abusing their authorities and their powers, whether it be in Congress or within the executive branch,” Brennan said on MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell Reports. “And this is something that I am hoping that individuals of conscience are going to stop and prevent because I am concerned that this is just one indication that Mr. Trump is going to increasingly look for steps to take in order to further to try to subvert the Mueller investigation.” Video and more over at  Real Clear Politics

Trump’s legal team’s epic fail – meet John Dowd

 

If you have any questions how Trump’s legal team got themselves into such a mess with Mueller, look no further than this fellow John Dowd. The good news is that after the damage was done as far as strategy and giving away the store, he left back in March 2018. The bad news? I will let you take a look-see.. and it’s not easy on the eyes.

We had the good fortune of hearing the setup this past week when Hannity dragged Dowd out from under a rock to explain his thinking. Dowd thought he could trust Mueller and had a handshake on it? He’s disappointed?

I can’t say he is in much better shape with media hog Rudy, who never let’s a minute go without being noticed.

Dowd, who has urged the President to cooperate with special counsel Robert Mueller’s probe and resist attacking him publicly, resigned as his disagreements with Trump intensified and the President stepped up his attacks on the special counsel. His departure raises questions about the direction of Trump’s legal strategy and could signal a more aggressive posture on Trump’s part. (You think??) H/t: CNN

 

Rosenstein Moved Cohen Case to New York – Then Ordered Trump-Appointed US Attorney Geoffrey Berman to Recuse Himself

 

This wasn’t rocket science to figure out when Mueller moved some of the investigation to New York that the plan was to keep at Trump into perpetuity. What we didn’t figure that he would make sure that Trump’s pick to head  up the office would be neutered and removed. Obama sycophants continue the war and attempt to destroy Trump and everyone he knew. Keep in mind this was the same office that charged De Souza. What is the matter with Berman to agree to it? How about Sessions?

Trump appointed attorney Geoffrey Berman recused himself from the investigation into Michael Cohen.

Wired Sources got this information from a New York Post article by Michael Goodwin.

The US attorney Trump appointed for that outpost, Geoffrey Berman, reportedly was ordered to recuse himself by Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, leaving the office staffed mostly by holdovers from Preet Bharara’s tenure.

Bloomberg reported on the latest tactics to get Trump in the Southern District of New York.
Bloomberg reported:

Khuzami was put in charge of the Cohen investigation after the U.S. attorney who Trump appointed to lead the office, Geoffrey Berman, recused himself. It’s unclear why Berman did so, but he previously worked in the law firm of Greenberg Traurig LLP, which also employed Rudy Giuliani, a top Trump campaign supporter who’s now his personal lawyer.

Berman was appointed by Trump after the president fired prosecutor Preet Bharara in March 2017.Bharara, who was appointed by President Barack Obama and won fame for prosecuting insider-trading cases, has become a scathing critic of Trump on social media and a podcast…

…And while New York prosecutors are required to notify the Justice Department’s Public Integrity Section if they want to pursue election fraud cases, there haven’t been any signs of tension between the office and Justice Department headquarters with regard to the Cohen investigation, the person said.

Rosenstein made the decision to give the Cohen case to SDNY following a referral from Mueller.That also ensured the investigation could continue even if Trump somehow managed to fire the special counsel, a politically dangerous move that many Republicans have warned the president to avoid.

Here is a list from Vox that Mueller’s evil enterprise has in mind and investigating.

  • The Trump Organization: Early this year, Mueller’s team subpoenaed Trump’s business for documents, including some related to Russia, the New York Times reported.
  • Russian oligarchs: Mueller’s team surprised two Russian oligarchs at US airports this year, and questioned them about their ties to people in Trump’s orbit. He seized electronic devices from one oligarch.
  • The Trump campaign’s digital operation: Mueller’s team interviewed people involved with Trump’s digital team with an eye toward understanding whether they’d coordinated with Russian online efforts, Yahoo News and ABC News have reported.
  • Trump’s inauguration: The special counsel has also investigated Russia-tied donations to Trump’s inaugural committee, and the “unusual access” that certain Russians got to inaugural events, per ABC News.
  • The Seychelles meeting and Gulf money: Shortly before Trump’s inauguration, a donor of his (Erik Prince) held a mysterious meeting in Seychelles with a Russian fund manager. The meeting was facilitated by the crown prince of the United Arab Emirates and his adviser, George Nader. It has also emerged that after Don Jr.’s Russian meeting at Trump Tower, he held another meeting about election assistance — with Prince and Nader. Mueller’s team served Nader with a subpoena in the US and has brought him before the grand jury. Keep an eye on this one.
  • Roger Stone’s associates: Particularly in the past few months, Mueller has sought to question many people in the orbit of longtime on-and-off Trump adviser Roger Stone. Stone was in contact with WikiLeaks and the Guccifer 2.0 persona (which was run by Russian intelligence) during the campaign, making him a figure of interest in the question of whether Trump associates were involved in the release of those stolen Democratic emails.
  • Obstruction of justice: On top of that, there is Mueller’s investigation into whether President Trump obstructed justice while in office — in pressuring then-FBI Director James Comey to drop an investigation into Michael Flynn, later firing Comey, pressuring Attorney General Jeff Sessions, and a plethora of other actions. The special counsel’s team interviewed many current and former White House and administration officials about these topics last year.
  • The presidential interview: Finally, Mueller’s team requested back in January that President Trump agree to an interview. We know from a list of leaked questions that the special counsel wants to ask about collusion, obstruction of justice, and Trump’s ties to Russia generally. The president has spent about seven months refusing to agree to this request since. Read more at  Vox

Mueller: Not sure if government can assassinate Americans on U.S. soil

 

Here is a flashback for Saturday. The left is worried about Trump’s stability. How about former FBI Director Mueller? From 2012. Just for the record.

 

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 argued in his remarks that it is “simply not accurate” that the president must get permission from a federal court before taking action against a United States citizen terrorist.

“Due process and judicial process are not one and the same, particularly when it comes to national security. The Constitution guarantees due process, not judicial process,” he said.

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’m going to defer.

snip….

“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

 

 

Bonus former Daily Special Post:

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.

Gateway Pundit:

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.
