Trump-Appointed Judge Has Serious Doubts About Mueller’s Junk Russian Bot Case

It looks like Robert Mueller’s publicity stunt is backfiring bigly.

U.S. District Judge Dabney Friedrich, a Trump-appointee, is having very serious doubts about Mueller’s garbage case against Russian company Concord Management. Indicted Russian company Concord Management filed a motion to have Mueller’s case dismissed and raised arguments in court earlier this week.

Judge Dabney Friedrich is having serious doubts about the ‘conspiracy against the U.S.’ charges against Concord Management brought forth by the Special Counsel. In a new court order Thursday, the Judge said Concord Management’s conduct was not in violation of the law.

A New York lawyer breaks down the new court order:

We already know that the basis for the Special Counsel was fraudulent.

Now we’re seeing entities being charged with conduct that isn’t criminal.

The indictment included “conspiracy against the US” charges for failing to register for social media spends, political activities, etc.

However, the Special Counsel insists that it doesn’t have to show Concord “had a legal duty to report.”

How is it conspiracy if there’s no underlying illegal conduct or no illegal ends?

Here’s your answer:

Concord could have interfered with the FEC’s ability to determine whether “statutes were violated.”

That’s it.

This is exceedingly dangerous.

And it gives a roadmap to how the Special Counsel will treat Trump.

Mueller is accustomed to rubber stamps from friendly judges.

       FBI & DEPT. OF JUSTICE - ARE YOU LISTENING??? Your beloved Obama is taunting YOU for your failure to do your job. The public thinks you are corrupt because you are not going after KNOWN CRIMINALS who happen to be high powered liberals...AND YOU ARE CORRUPT. FIX IT!!! BTW: None of the Trumped up Trump indictments had anything to do with Trump and the 2016 election. Even this idiotic article that I'm posting from THE HILL, doesn't bother to inform people of that most important point.

Obama takes jab at Trump: ‘Nobody in my administration got indicted’

Former President Obama on Friday took a swipe at President Trump over those who have been caught up in special counsel Robert Mueller's probe.

"They promised to take on corruption. Remember that?" Obama said while going after Trump and Republicans during a Democratic campaign event in Milwaukee.

"They have gone to Washington and just plundered away. In Washington, they have racked up enough indictments to field a football team," he said.

"Nobody in my administration got indicted." 

As of this month, Mueller's team has indicted or secured guilty pleas from 32 people as part of his sprawling probe into Russian meddling in the 2016 election.

Four of those people include former Trump campaign adviser George Papadopoulos, former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort, former Trump campaign aide Richard Gates and Trump's former national security adviser, Michael Flynn.

Trump has repeatedly slammed the investigation as a partisan "witch hunt" and called for it to be ended.

Obama on Friday also took aim at Republicans who criticized Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton's emails during the 2016 election cycle. He alluded to a New York Times report this week that said Russia and China are eavesdropping on Trump’s personal phone calls.

"They didn't care about emails," Obama said. "And you know how you know? Because if they did, they'd be up in arms right now as the Chinese are listening to the president's iPhone that he leaves in his golf cart. It turns out, I guess it wasn't that important.”

       "See how it works? Being a Democrat gives you special privileges. Just ask Hillary. She was found innocent long before any investigation was over."

Exposed: Inside the DOJ 'Hit Squad'

Corruption Wider, Deeper than anyone can possibly realize

As more information comes out, peeling back the onion of the Department of Justice, Republican leaders are becoming increasingly alarmed at the abuse of power there.

 

Here’s what we know: Former Attorney General under Barack Obama, Eric Holder, identified and placed sympathetic ideologues in key departments of the DOJ and FBI. They were also placed in the IRS, the FEC and the IRS. This all combined to form a “Red Team” that would target, isolate and destroy opponents of Obama or his legacy. Reportedly, both Democrats and Republicans were on the list, but the majority was conservative leaders.

They mapped out weak targets, then the IRS, SEC or FEC would research them deeply, looking for any mistakes or missteps. Once information was gathered that would spark interest, it was leaked to friendlies in the press, politicians or sympathetic nonprofits, such as the Sunlight Foundation. By doing, so they covered their tracks to avoid the charge of targeting.

Multiple sources in Congress have told me the DOJ would then hijack these administrative agencies’ actions, bringing these investigations “in house” and handling them as felony investigations. The targeted list (enemies list) was developed and fleshed out by the Red Team (or “hit squad”).

Once the DOJ took a case, it moved without interference, using broad powers to issue subpoenas and charges in federal criminal indictments.

Republicans are treated differently than Democrats. Duncan Hunter (R-Calif.), an early Trump supporter, received a publicized complaint about a potential FEC problem. When the same thing happened to Obama, he received FEC warning letters and a notice to correct the problem. He was instructed to pay a $375,000 fine and the matter was over. Notably, the money in question was a larger amount than Hunter was accused of.

But Hunter didn’t receive warning letters and the opportunity to pay a fine. Instead, the complaint went to the DOJ and Obama sympathizers’ Red Team – the “hit squad.” The bomb was dropped in a press release right before this year’s midterm elections, designed to sink Hunter’s campaign and defeat him.

Another early Trump supporter targeted by the DOJ right before the midterm elections was Rep. Chris Collins (R-NY). Normally, letters and other contact from the SEC are initiated regarding perceived violations and a deal is worked out, fine paid, etc., just as happened with Tesla’s Elon Musk. Instead, the DOJ initiated an investigation.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

See how it works? Being a Democrat gives you special privileges. Just ask Hillary. She was found innocent long before any investigation was over.

On the other hand, look at former Rep. Steve Stockman (R-Texas). The donations at issue in his prosecution case were less than Hillary’s travel – a mere $915,000 in four checks written to two nonprofit organizations. Neither of the donors in Stockman’s case complained. Instead, the DOJ sought out the donors. If there were really guilt there, such a small case should have taken only about six months to investigate.

Instead, it took DOJ and Lois Lerner’s former nonprofit division four years, four grand juries, and an estimated $20 million to create a believable story in order to bring charges against Stockman. They really wanted him. In the 1990s, he served on the Whitewater House committee that investigated Clinton wrongdoing. In his most recent term in Congress, Stockman threatened to consider articles of impeachment against President Obama, called out Hillary Clinton for breaking the Iran sanctions, and busted Obama for giving money to the Haqqani terrorist network. And apparently “the straw that broke the camel’s back” was when Stockman filed a House resolution calling for the arrest of Lois Lerner for being in contempt of Congress. He had the audacity to stand up to the same hit team now going after Trump. The government wants life in prison for Stockman.

Attorneys for Concord Management Destroy JV Mueller Mob Claiming Mueller’s Position Is “I Did, I Did, I Taw A Puddy Tat”!!

The Special Counsel’s witch hunt is epitomized through it’s first case against 13 Russians and 3 Russian companies.  The one Russian firm represented in court, Concord Management, is making a mockery of the Mueller gang as the witch hunt falls apart!

In an effort to tie their corrupt investigation to Russia, the Mueller team indicted 13 Russians after presenting their cases to a grand jury in February of this year. Immediately, these indictments were suspect as everyone on to the corrupt Mueller team knew that these ‘Russians’ would never be brought to justice, even if they were real, because they would never come to the US to stand trial and risk being put in jail.

Unfortunately for Mueller however, this soon turned into a royal mess. Lawyers defending one of three Russian companies indicted with the 13 Russians, Concord Management, showed up for court. Mueller’s team was caught off guard and never expected this. They immediately asked the judge for more time but the judge denied their pleas noting that they were the ones who indicted the Russian company in the first place.

When the case proceeded, the Concord attorney’s noted that another of the three companies indicted by Mueller was not in existence at the time of Mueller’s indictment. They called this a case of Mueller indicting the proverbial ‘ham sandwich’.

At a following court appearance, the attorneys representing Concord stated that the corrupt Mueller team's allegations of 13 Russian individuals impacting the 2016 election were “made up” nonsense. The individuals were not even real.

Concord Management's lawyers revealed that Mueller’s team had ignored over 70 discovery requests they had made for information in 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 who sought to influence the US election and the majority of the data was in RUSSIAN.

Mueller’s lawyers then admitted that they didn’t even have English translations for the Russian social media posts. However, somehow Mueller’s lawyers believed Americans were influenced by these Russian language posts?

The case of the Russians has now turned into a big joke as the legitimacy of the Mueller indictment is being challenged by Concord Management.

In a hearing on October 15th, Concord Management claimed that the Special Counsel’s entire case is built around a 100 year old law that he Mueller team is trying to use in a manner it was not built for.

        "Sources told The Daily Mail that Whitey Bulger was about to out people in the FBI, specifically FBI officials of the informant program."

        As this article notes, Robert Mueller was deeply involved with Bulger, also see this post: 8906.1 ALSO, and compounding the conspiracy possibilities: Is it a coincidence that Bulger is murdered in prison at the same time that Mueller is being accused of rape in 2010? See the post to follow this post.

Mueller-Connected Boston Mobster Whitey Bulger Killed in Prison… As He Was About to Out FBI Officials

Legendary Boston mobster Whitey Bulger was killed in prison overnight on Tuesday.

89-year-old Boston mob boss James ‘Whitey’ Bulger was killed in prison by a ‘fellow inmate with mafia ties’ shortly after he was transferred to a West Virginia federal prison. Bulger was reportedly wheeled away from security cameras and beaten with a lock in a sock and also had his eyes gouged out.

Sources told The Daily Mail that Whitey Bulger was about to out people in the FBI, specifically FBI officials of the informant program.

Via The Daily Mail:

Boston gangster James ‘Whitey’ Bulger Jr. has been killed behind bars shortly after he was transferred to a federal prison in West Virginia. He was 89.

Bulger was found dead overnight on Tuesday at USP Hazelton, a high-security prison with an adjacent minimum security satellite camp in Bruceton Mills.

It emerged in Bulger’s 2013 trial that he had served as an FBI informant as far back as 1975, though he always denied the claim.

Law enforcement sources tell DailyMail.com that Whitey had been talking about outing people in the FBI – people in the top echelon of the informant program.

The sources said he hadn’t even been processed at the West Virginia facility when he was killed. But someone who knew he was being transferred put the word out – the killer had to know he was coming.

The Whitey Bulger-Robert Mueller connection:

MUELLER’S MINIONS HELPED MOBSTER WHITEY BULGER ELIMINATE MOB COMPETITORS, says Congressman Louie Gohmert

In May, Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) published a 48-page report called “Robert Mueller Unmasked” to expose the Special Counsel’s decades of corruption.

In the extensive report, Gohmert covered Mueller’s shady past of helping mobster Whitey Bulger by eliminating mob competitors.

The Boston Globe noted Robert Mueller’s connection with the Whitey Bulger case in an article entitled, “One Lingering Question for FBI Director Robert Mueller.” The Globe said this:

“[Mike] Albano [former Parole Board Member who was threatened by two F.B.I. agents for considering parole for the men imprisoned for a crime they did not commit] was appalled that, later that same year, Mueller was appointed FBI director, because it was Mueller, first as an assistant US attorney then as the acting U.S. attorney in Boston, who wrote letters to the parole and pardons board throughout the 1980s opposing clemency for the four men framed by FBI lies. Of course, Mueller was also in that position while Whitey Bulger was helping the FBI cart off his criminal competitors even as he buried bodies in shallow graves along the Neponset…”

Mueller put people in prison for crimes they did not commit:

The Gateway Pundit obtained a copy of the charges.

What we know: The woman is a “very credible witness.” Her story are corroborated. The incident happened in 2010 in New York City. The woman is a professional.

We will post the document shortly.

The Mueller apologists are already trashing the accuser — and don’t even know who she is!

Meadows: Investigate FBI for being 'weaponized' by Obama

Did bureau lie to spy on members of Trump campaign?

The words “FBI investigation” have struck terror in the heart of many a wrong-doer over the years.

Now, however, it could mean an investigation OF the FBI.

Specifically, whether its interaction with the secret court that must approve surveillance operations constituted illegal acts.

The chairman of the House Freedom Caucus, Rep. Mark Meadows, R-N.C., is asking the head of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court to determine whether the FBI engaged in misconduct, such as lying, to surveil members of President Trump’s 2016 campaign.

“As the Presiding Judge of the FISC … you are privy to information which could potentially verify or contradict our understanding of abuses of the FISA process,” he wrote to Judge Rosemay Collyer.

“Ultimately, to protect the integrity of the process, we believe such an investigation is necessary,” he said.

“We write to encourage you to investigate the possibility FISA has recently been weaponized for political means.”

The court issued warrants several times to spy on Trump campaign volunteer Carter Page.

But the House Intelligence Committee found that the FBI and the Justice Department used the so-called “dossier” of unsubstantiated opposition research as primary evidence to obtain the warrant.

The dossier was created by an ex-British spy on the payroll of a company funded by Hillary Clinton’s campaign.

Meadows is on a congressional task force investigating the FBI review of “possible collusion” between the campaign and Russia.

No evidence of collusion has been found, and the only convictions that have come from Robert Mueller’s special counsel’s office have been on procedural counts.

Daily Caller News Foundation reported Republicans so far are focusing on the FBI’s requests for four FISA warrants against Page issued from October 2016 to June 2017. To obtain the warrants, the FBI was required to provide probable cause that the target of the warrant was acting as an agent of a foreign power.

In his letter to Collyer, Meadows said the dossier contained “hearsay evidence” and other Republicans have noted that much of its contents were unverified at the time the FBI cited it in its FISA applications. The dossier’s author, Christopher Steele, claimed Page met secretly with two sanctioned Russians in 2016 and was the Trump campaign’s “back channel to the Kremlin.”

No evidence has been made public that supports the accusations.

Meadows wrote: “Over the course of our congressional task force’s review into certain investigative and prosecutorial decisions made by the FBI and broader Department of Justice surrounding the 2016 elections, concerns have mounted related to the veracity of information presented before the FISC.”

Part of the problem is that the FBI concealed from the FISA court the fact that the dossier was paid for by the Democratic National Committee and Clinton’s campaign. Meadows said the obvious concern is that the court “may not have lived up to the Constitution’s protections against unreasonable searches and seizures.”

WND reported in August that Bruce Ohr, a former top Justice Department official at the center of the anti-Trump dossier scandal, confirmed the FBI was aware when it submitted the dossier as evidence that Steele was biased against Trump and that Ohr’s wife worked for the company that produced it.

But that information was withheld from the FISA court.

        “Based on our investigation and open source information, the FISC may have not lived up to the Constitution’s protections against unreasonable searches and seizures in approving U.S. citizens targeted without probable cause,” Meadows wrote. “We write to encourage you to investigate the possibility that FISA has recently been weaponized for political means.”

Silence of 'the lambs': The deafening quietude of the FISA court and John Roberts

Two years ago this month, the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISC) issued a warrant authorizing the FBI to spy on Carter Page, a former foreign policy adviser to President Trump. The stated suspicion was the nominee’s campaign was colluding with Russia.

The issuance of a so-called FISA warrant was momentous and unprecedented, permitting a Democratic-run Justice Department to obtain communications inside the duly-elected GOP nominee’s campaign during its final weeks before the election.

Since that time, we have learned much about the evidence — or lack thereof — that supported the warrant.

We know, for example, the primary evidence was a dossier created by British intelligence operative Christopher Steele, but the court wasn’t told his work was directly paid for by Trump's rival, Hillary Clinton, and the Democratic Party.

Instead, the FBI used this footnote in its warrant application to describe who hired Steele: “The FBI speculates that the identified U.S. person was likely looking for information that could be used to discredit” the Trump campaign. That’s hardly complete or forthcoming.

We also know that when the Steele dossier was submitted, it had not been fully vetted for accuracy, despite a requirement that all FISA evidence be verified. Some of the dossier’s claims later were found to be inaccurate.

We’ve painfully learned of blatant bias inside the investigation. Steele told senior Department of Justice (DOJ) official Bruce Ohr he was desperate to keep Trump from being elected president. Two of the FBI’s leads on the case, Peter Strzok and Lisa Page, were having an affair and texting each other about finding “an insurance policy” designed to "stop" Trump.

The FBI lovebirds even communicated they were applying “hurry the F up” pressure to try to rush the FISA warrant through the court before Election Day.

We recently learned that the FBI’s initial justification for opening the Trump-Russia collusion case — the belief that another campaign aide, George Papadopoulos, might have colluded with Moscow — quickly fell apart when Papadopoulos told an FBI informant he didn't collude and would consider such activity treasonous.

Finally, the House intelligence committee dug up evidence that Steele and the FBI engaged in leaks with the news media about the Russia investigation, then used some of those articles to support its FISA application. That is a practice known as circular intelligence, where single-source reporting is made to look multi-sourced.

There are more exculpatory pieces of evidence I could detail but these alone make a compelling case that the initial FBI and DOJ representations to the court were, at best, flawed and, at worst, desperately biased and driven by an election clock.

And that begs the question: What do the FISC judges and Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts, the ultimate judicial disciplinarian, think about what happened?

After all, the FISC issued not one but four warrants allowing the FBI to monitor Page for nearly nine months into Trump’s presidency.

This week, Rep. Mark Meadows (R-N.C.), the conservative firebrand who, along with Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio), has driven the once reluctant House leaders to dig for much of the aforementioned evidence, sent his own missive to U.S. District Judge Rosemary Collyer. She is chief judge of the FISC.

His letter asked the obvious question: As a separate and equal pillar of government from Congress and the executive branch, does the judiciary have concerns with the FBI’s and DOJ’s conduct?

“Based on our investigation and open source information, the FISC may have not lived up to the Constitution’s protections against unreasonable searches and seizures in approving U.S. citizens targeted without probable cause,” Meadows wrote. “We write to encourage you to investigate the possibility that FISA has recently been weaponized for political means.”

It is not unprecedented for the usually secretive court to speak. In recent years, it has released documents — usually self-reported violations from DOJ and the FBI — so the public can see when the process has been abused.

Now, it is possible that the court has taken some action in the Russia case, such holding a show-cause hearing behind closed doors, to question the FBI. But if it hasn’t, Meadows’ letter is designed to smoke out a response.

The FISC is one of the only courts in America where the accused gets no representation, and the public gets no visibility. For that reason, the DOJ and FBI are supposed to be held to a higher standard of making sure judges see “the good, the bad and the ugly.”
