Mueller’s Big Problem: He Keeps Drawing Judges Who Have Read the Constitution

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Tired of all this Winning yet? – There has been much cause for optimism lately as Special Counsel Robert Mueller and his evil band of Clinton/Obama hacks have repeatedly run into trouble when their cases must finally be heard in federal court.

Mueller’s people most famously had to endure a lecture from Federal Judge T.S. Ellis on May 4 when the judge lambasted them for basically lying to the court in an effort to claim their case against former Trump Campaign Manager Paul Manafort has anything to do with the Special Counsel’s charge to investigate the Democrat/Media-constructed Russia Collusion fantasy.  Their day before Judge Ellis became even worse when he demanded that they produce the memos from Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein that laid out the scope of their investigation, and do so by this coming Friday.  The oily Mr. Rosenstein has fought tooth and nail to keep those memos confidential, on the specious grounds that they contain “classified” information.  Oops.

The Mueller team had another major stumble in court the very next day, when Federal Judge Dabney Friedrich denied their motion for a delay in their absurd case against the Russian firm Concord Management.  Concord is one of the 13 Russian entities that Mueller and his evil minions indicted back in February in a transparently dishonest effort to show their investigation has at least some tenuous connection to the whole Russia Collusion fantasy play.

To make matters even more Keystone Cop-ish, one of the Concord-related companies indicted by Mueller’s band of aspiring circus clowns, Concord Catering, did not even exist at the time the Mueller team claims it was engaged in social media shenanigans.  Oops.

The catch in issuing those indictments, of course, was that the Mueller minions never expected to have to prosecute any of their specious charges, because they assumed none of the accused would actually show up in a U.S. court voluntarily.  But Concord showed up, demanded the Court enforce their constitutional right to a speedy trial, and Judge Friedrich ordered the case to move forward.  Oops.

Mueller’s case against former Trump National Security Advisor General Mike Flynn is also hanging on by a thread at this point.  It has become increasingly obvious over the six months since Flynn entered his guilty plea to lying to the FBI that Mueller’s evil minions withheld exculpatory evidence that would likely clear Flynn of the charge.  The tide in this case began to turn when it was taken over by Federal Judge Emmet Sullivan, who is well-known for his disdain for prosecutors who mislead the court.  Oops.

The developments in all three of these cases clearly demonstrate the utterly dishonest nature of the Mueller “investigation.”  Mueller’s operation is not an “investigation” at all:  It is in fact the witch hunt that President Trump has repeatedly alleged it to be.  Yesterday marked the one-year anniversary of Mueller’s baseless appointment by Rosenstein, and in all that time Mueller and his ever-expanding team of witch-hunters have uncovered exactly zero evidence that anyone in the Trump Campaign or transition team colluded with any Russian to influence the 2016 election outcome.

The series of court setbacks are all very encouraging for those non-Democrats and non-fake journalists who have realized all along what a sham the entire Mueller enterprise has been.  But we all need to take a little breath here and realize that all of these encouraging developments have come about largely due to the luck of the draw.  The fact is that to this point, Mueller has suffered some very bad luck in terms of the judges who have been assigned to his cases.

Although a Clinton appointee to the federal bench, Judge Sullivan has long been well-known as a judge who forces both sides to adhere firmly to the rules of evidence and repect for the process.  The case against General Flynn appeared to be a done deal under the original judge assigned to the case, Rudolph Contreras, an Obama appointee to the federal bench.  Contreras was forced to recuse himself from the case in early December when it was publicly revealed that his is a FISA judge who likely signed off on one of the FISA warrants that gave the FBI authority to spy on the Trump Campaign in 2016.  Contreras had no problem allowing Mueller to just do as he pleased.

Judge Ellis is a Reagan appointee.  Judge Friedrich is a Trump appointee.  Both judges have, inconveniently for Mueller and his evil minions, actually read the Constitution and hold a healthy respect for it.  Had Mueller drawn Obama appointees in the Concord or Manafort cases, he’d likely not be having any problems in either case.

It’s key to note that judges are assigned to these cases on a random draw basis.  Thus, to this point, Mueller has been extremely unlucky, given that there are more Clinton and Obama appointees populating the Virginia and Washington, DC federal bench – where Mueller’s grand juries are convened – than there are Reagan, Bush and Trump appointees.

We can’t count on that luck to continue.  At some point Mueller will draw an Obama judge, and any notion of due process and constitutional protections for the defense will fly right out the window.  Just something to think about as this mess keeps moving ahead.

Just another day in let’s hope Mueller’s bad luck continues America.

That is all.

Friday Was a Terrible, Awful, Very Bad Day for the Deep State

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Bug-eyed California Congressman Adam Schiff is back and lying like never before. – The former deep state U.S. attorney who is also the ranking Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee has gone eerily quiet in the public space in recent weeks, but he penned an op-ed for the New York Times on Friday.  In that piece, he hilariously advises his fellow Democrats running for congress this year to not talk about impeaching the President of the United States should they gain a majority in the House of Representatives.  His reason?  Why, Democrats don’t want to give the public the crazy idea that they’re trying to “nullify an election.”  Which, of course, is exactly what ol’ Bugeyes has been trying to do in his role on the House Intel Committee for the last 16 months.  Breathtaking hypocrisy.

Speaking of breathtaking hypocrites, race-baiting CNN fake host Don Lemon told some other fake journalist who was interviewing him that Kanye West lacks critical thinking skills.  Lemon claimed that his own critical thinking skills – you know, the kind that have led him to determine that an alleged affair with a porn star is a bigger story than record-low unemployment and peace on the Korean peninsula – tell him that President Trump may not be a “racist,” but he is at least “racist-adjacent.”  By the same token, my own critical thinking skills have allowed me to determine that Don Lemon may not be a raging nitwit, but he is at least raging-nitwit-adjacent.

Several very interesting developments related to the whole “Russia Collusion” fantasy play on Friday, so we’ll go through them in order here:

National Security Agency Director Navy Admiral Mike Rogers offically retired, turning over his command to Army General Paul Nakasone.  Rogers, if you remember, has played a key role over the last 20 months in uncovering the rampant abuse of the FISA process at the DOJ and FBI, in their efforts to spy on the Trump Campaign, Trump transition team, and as it is now becoming apparent, the Trump administration.  Rogers is also the official who met with President-elect Trump shortly after the election, alerting him to the fact that his transition team’s offices in Trump Tower had been bugged, prompting the move of the team to another Trump property the next day.

Interestingly, Rogers’ retirement will allow him to testify in any trials of the bad actors at DOJ and the FBI that take place in the future, something he would have not been able to do had he remained in his job.  Possibly just a coincidence, but a potentially very useful one.

Speaking of bad actors at the DOJ and FBI, former FBI General Counsel and former DOJ lawyer Lisa Page officially “resigned” from the positions they’d been demoted to yesterday.  Both are subjects of investigation for possible criminal wrongdoing in all the various campaign-related shenanigans at the DOJ/FBI during 2016 and 2017.

Page, of course, is the texting buddy of FBI super agent Peter Strzok, with whom she reportedly shared more than 50,000 texts over several months in 2016/2017.  She also served as the legal counsel to the very sweaty ex-FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, one of the main fixers in the Clinton email scandal, among other things.

Baker is under investigation for the apparently very common FBI practice of leaking classified information to the news media.  Naturally, upon the announcement of his “retirement”, Baker received this praising tweet from fired ex-FBI Director James Comey, himself a serial leaker of classified information:

Deep state snakes of a feather, peas in a pod and all of that.

The retirements of these two bad actors likely means that they have provided all the information they have provide to Inspector General Michael Horowitz, Utah U.S. Attorney John Huber and their investigative staff.  My belief is that the only reason they weren’t fired outright last winter was because they chose to become cooperating witnesses.  Like Strzok, they’ve rolled over and made deals in exchange for spilling the beans.  Now they get to go home and get their affairs in order while they await possible indictments and trials.  Just an educated guess, but it sure fits the facts as we know them.

Speaking of IG Michael Horowitz, his long-awaited final report of his investigation into all these bad actors appears to have been pushed off yet again, but this may ultimately be a good thing.  Horowitz sent a letter to House Oversight Committee Chairman Trey Gowdy stating that he was pursuing “new leads” in his investigation of the FBI’s fake investigation into the Clinton email abuse, so Gowdy announced yesterday that he is postponing the date of the IG’s appearance before his committee, which had been planned for May 8.

It may be important to note that the previously-mentioned Andrew McCabe led the FBI’s fake investigation noted above for many months.  Could these “new leads” mean McCabe – who has been oddly silent for the past few weeks after initially lashing out publicly following his firing – has also decided to make a deal with the investigators?  It’s a logical bet.  We’ll see.

Finally (I know this is getting long, but bear with me), Special Counsel Robert Mueller and his merry band of Clinton/Obama hacks had a very, very bad day in federal court on Friday.  They had the misfortune of drawing Federal Judge T.S. Ellis III, a Reagan appointee who has actually read the U.S. Constitution and respects it, as the judge in their case against former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort.

When Mueller’s minions began to argue their case against Manafort, which involves allegations of bank fraud that took place many years before Donald Trump ever announced his intention to run for president, Judge Ellis cut in, saying:

“I don’t see what relation this indictment has with what the special counsel is authorized to investigate,” Ellis said, according to Politico’s Josh Gerstein. “What you really care about is what information Mr. Manafort could give you that would reflect on Mr. Trump or lead to his prosecution or impeachment.”

Ellis further questioned by what authority the Mueller team was even conducting such an investigation to charges wholely-unrelated to any “Russia Collusion,” and demanded that they present him with the authorizing documents from Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein that ostensibly establish their authority.  He gave the hacks two weeks to produce those documents.

This is crucial since Rosenstein himself has refused to produce those same documents to various congressional committees that have made repeated demands to see them.  Rosenstein obviously does not want anyone to know what those authorizing memos contain.

But now a federal judge wants to see them, and a federal judge, unlike congress, has the authority to hold the hacks and Rosenstein himself in contempt of court and toss them into the pokey if they don’t comply.

Oh, my, Mueller and Rosenstein obviously did not see this coming.  Friday, May 18 is going to be a very fun day indeed.

Stay tuned.

Just another day in the conspiracy to take down President Trump is falling apart America.

That is all.
