        Doesn’t need to be to a country that we have no extradition with. It’s fleeing the jurisdiction, i.e. the U.S. if it’s a federal case.
        In addition to fugitives-
        Suspension and Extension “may yield to circumstances other than the type of crime to be prosecuted. For example, an otherwise applicable limitation period may be suspended or extended in cases involving child abuse, the concealment of the assets of an estate in bankruptcy,wartime fraud against the government, dismissal of original charges, fugitives, foreign evidence,or DNA evidence.”

Never ceases to amaze me that they think they are greater and better than the rest of humanity using their free will to destroy for money, self-love, hatred of others for whatever reasons, and on and on. Can’t feel sorry for them, however. In other words, we all choose our own path whether for evil or good.

      Thank you, phoenix:

      What does it mean to “toll the statute of limitations” in a criminal case?

      The phrase has to do with the time limits within which a criminal defendant can be prosecuted. The statutes of limitations are simply laws establishing these time limits. For example, in the federal criminal system, a prosecutor has only five years from the date a bank robbery is committed to file charges against the bank robber. (Where state criminal laws are involved, these time limits will vary from state to state, and will depend upon the type of offense involved.)

      Once that five years is up, that robber can cite the statute of limitations, thumb his nose at the prosecutor and go scot free. That may sound crazy, but there is a rationale for these statutes. They’re passed to give law enforcement personnel an incentive to act swiftly and efficiently, and to protect everyone from the confusion that results when cases are premised on witnesses’ memories fading and evidence that’s less reliable as time goes by. Don’t panic about murderers running around free, though — there is generally no statute of limitations for murder.

      But what about the tolling, you ask? When the statute of limitations tolls, that means it has been legally suspended — in other words, the clock stops running for a certain period of time — and the five or however many years gets further away.

      Tolling most commonly occurs when the defendant becomes a fugitive from the jurisdiction where he committed the crime. For example, let’s say that Jesse James robs a bank in Dodge City, Kansas on July 1, 2011. The next day, James flees Kansas hell-bent on escaping capture, and he hides out in the Badlands of South Dakota for six years. James is then caught and charged by the feds with bank robbery on July 1, 2017. James will not be able to get his case thrown out by arguing that the five-year limit for prosecuting his case has passed. Instead, the judge will rule that the statute of limitations tolled (was suspended) during the six years that James was on the lam, and the prosecution can go forward.

          You Might not need to be concerned about the statutes running out at this point If 2 or more persons conspired & made an overt act that was in violation of a federal law(s).

          “Conspirators left uninterrupted will frequently continue on through several overt acts to the ultimate commission of the underlying substantive offenses which are the objectives of their plots. Thus, the statute of limitations for such conspiracies begins to run not with the first overt act committed in furtherance of the conspiracy but with the last.”

          “Concealment of the criminal plot after its completion is considered a natural component of all conspiracies.”

              Glad you responded, otherwise, I wouldn’t have noticed my “cut & paste” missed part of the paragraph.
              Pgs 11-12
              “Consequently, overt acts of concealment after the objectives of the conspiracy have
              been accomplished may not be used to delay the running of the statute of limitations.
              Overt acts of concealment which are among the original objectives of the conspiracy as charged in the indictment, however, may serve as the point at which the statute of limitations begins to run.
              Distinguishing between the two is sometimes difficult.”

              I don’t know which would apply as I haven’t seen all of the documentary/testimonial evidence.
              But it does appear to me that concealment was/is among the original objectives of the conspiracy.

        And:
        The Statutes of Limitation “normally begin to run (starts ticking) when the crime is complete, which occurs when the last element of the crime has been satisfied.”
        One example of a federal drug/smuggling case w/ a statute of limitations of 5 yrs.:

        On Jan 1, 2018, Law enforcement arrests an individual who they caught & arrested for smuggling 100 kilos of cocaine into the U.S.. Through additional investigation, Law enforcement subsequently discovers & obtains sufficient evidence to prove that the smuggler had smuggled approx 100 kilos of cocaine into the U.S. every 3 months for the for the last Ten yrs.

        In this case, the smuggler can be indicted for everyone of those loads he smuggled over those 10 yrs. The statute of limitations starts ticking on the date the smuggler was arrested, Jan. 1, 2018.
        https://fas.org/sgp/crs/misc/RL31253.pdf

        Others could also be charged If the smuggler cooperates with law enforcement & provides information on others who are involved in the smuggling operation & law enforcement can obtain sufficient evidence for indictments.

        Not sure you’re trying to learn something or just throwing up random questions. The first four questions are odd. For example, #2 and #3 – sealed case files (not indictments) by their very nature do not disclose the defendant(s) identity.

        [Sealed case files can contain indictments and arrest warrants. Or they can contain what is known as a ‘criminal information’ and the guilty plea(s), and sometimes the actual plea deal too].

        The only reason people are pointing out the existence of 25K sealed cases throughout the ENTIRE federal court system is this: That is equivalent to a 25-year supply of sealed cases, docketed since late October 2017. So from a comparative standpoint, that number is very significant.

        [You may be interested to know that a case can have multiple defendants. So at the very least, there are 25K defendants waiting to be named. My guess is there are more. And lastly, a defendant can be indicted without ever appearing before a grand jury. If prosecutors present enough evidence of a crime – say tax evasion – the indictment can be made and the target arrested].

        As for the Q-Anon stuff, not sure about the relevance of the hashtag either.

          My point about the sealed indictments continues to be that NO ONE KNOWS WHAT THE SUBJECTS OF THE SEALED INDICTMENTS ARE, so why mention them at all as if they are some kind of evidence that something is being done about any of this corruption. QAnon does post about them from time to time and is likely the genesis of the Internet posts about the indictments.

          It is not possible to “learn anything” specific about the sealed indictments because, as stated many times before, they are SEALED. I keep trying to find a way to get this point across.

        The Dems have spent $12 million paid to FGP by HRC, plus we have learned another $50 million, paid by “donors.” Mueller & company seized Trumps transition records, and raided his lawyer’s office. Team Trump has given 1 million plus documents. They had a T1 wire tap on Carter Page for a year (so far Page hasn’t even gotten a parking ticket.) Flynn, Popodopolus, and Manafort have been indicted and no doubt pressured to spill on Trump.

        Yet I have not seen ANY evidence that Trump broke any laws. I would think that type of investigative effort could have gotten SOMETHING dirty on mother Teresa.

        Meanwhile the Deputy FBI Director has been exposed for LEAKING AND LYING UNDER OATH. The former DNI, Clapper has been exposed for LEAKING AND LYING UNDER OATH, and former FBI Director Comey has been exposed for LEAKING AND LYING UNDER OATH.

        Don’t even get me started on HRC and company.

        Here’s what concerns me about Rosenstein: He appointed a SC without any probable cause except for the release of Comey’s Memos. Sessions has repeatedly said that he trusts Rosenstein but at the same time wants the DOJ and FBI to get back to a standard way of prosecuting crimes, which is not by a SC. To me, he is speaking out of both sides of his mouth. Also the glaring conflicts of interest that exist for Rosenstein and Mueller have me even more concerned that justice will not be carried out fully in this case.

        I’m still holding out hope, but not holding my breath. I’m hoping that Rosenstein assigned Mueller because of other pressure he was receiving from top unnamed bureaucrats that Rosenstein may be testifying against (Wouldn’t that force a recusal if he’s also a witness? might be because they are separate “cases”, but I digress).

        If you add in the slow-walking of documents to Congress, one can potentially assume that the DOJ/FBI doesn’t want the public to know other potential areas of concern.

        Add this all up and we won’t know if true justice will be carried out until it’s happening or if it’s too late and investigations are closed with no indictments.

      Soon!

      There is a reason beyond just closing this POS Mueller down for Rudy Giuliani to be brought back into the fold. Rudy Giuliani to this day is still loved by the NYPD. Rudy Giuliani knows everything that was on the Weiner laptop. He probably has the 650,000 emails. When he met with Mueller the other day, he probably brought with him some of those interesting emails no one was ever suppose to see!

      Mueller is a DEAD 💀 MAN WALKING! You will not here much of anything from him going forward. He will be wrapping up his BS investigation over the next month or so.

      Folks we are going to see prosecutions on so many different items it is going to spin our heads around. We are talking about money laundering, pedophilia, sedition etc. I truly believe each and everyone of them involved will be spending the majority of their lives in prison. HRC knew damn well after the non debate with Matt Lauer that if he won, “We Are ALL Going To Hang”!

    So…did I understand correctly; Comey, Clapper and Brennan still have security clearances? Comey fired, Clapper and Brennan no longer in office but retain a security clearance? Perhaps I have slowed down in my old age, but how does that make sense.

      The only thing that makes sense to me is that they let them keep security clearance so Qanon can track them and see how they use the info. If it’s for nefarious purposes, the prosecution will know that and use it against them as evidence.

        I concur- I thought about that right about the time Mark Levin put the scheme together from MSM reports and broadcast it Feb-Mar 2017, both on his radio program and on Hannity’s FNC TV show. Of course, at the time the MSM gave him the “tin foil hat” treatment.

        Then Evelyn Farkas confirmed the NSA/CIA database use on MSNBC. I figured the sleuths with PDJT were letting them keep their security clearances and the people from the former administration would not be able to resist the temptation……….

    Why would anyone who is no longer holding a governmental job still have a security clearance?
    Where is the “need to know” for outsiders? Many of us were given clearances in the military; I had assumed that those disappeared upon discharge. Brennan and Clapper still have them? Who else?

      They actually don’t disappear. Your access may disappear, but you still have the clearance until your time for a Periodic Reinvestigation (usually 5 years). As a veteran, you may go to work for a contractor, for example. However, just because you have the clearance doesn’t mean anything. You still need to be cleared for access by your agency.

He is a low life and disgusting snake, and, trust me, I’m being charitable in my description of him.

    Sometimes Democrats do tell the truth, but usually that is because they don’t realize the implications of what they are saying. CASE IN POINT: Reines thinks Trump should have nothing to worry about from “his own” DOJ but that is because Reines’s experience was with how easy the Obama DOJ was on Fellow-Traveler Hillary. That is precisely why today we cannot trust the DOJ which is made up primarily of Obama DOJ hold-overs, including Rosenstein (the spouse of an Obama and Clinton lawyer) and Obama FBI Head Robert Mueller (of Uranium One Fame (or Infamy)).

It is Trumps department of justice that is investigating PDT for Russia, Russia, Russia, Obstruction. Not some left wing group. I also thought Joe looked agitated and like he is hiding something.

  27. So this Phillipe Reine (Hillary’s “fixer” on Bengazi? This was the guy Hillary chose to stand in for Donald Trump in her debate rehearsals, while she practiced her Creepy Grandma Smile?) says it’s ridiculous for Trump to complain that Robert “Frame ’em All” Mueller has wasted a year of everyone’s time trying to “get something” on Trump or any or all members of his family, since Trump is the boss of everyone involved.

    OK, Phillipe: Let’s say tomorrow President Trump announces, “This is all a ridiculous waste of time, distracting us from more important matters. As of right now, I’m firing Rod Rosenstein, Bob Mueller, everyone on Mueller’s team, Chris Wray at the FBI, and about 50 other Obama-era holdovers at the DOJ and FBI to be named by suppertime. They’ve all got a half hour to clean out their desks. The so-called ‘Russian collusion’ investigation is over, and with it Mr. Sessions’ recusal; now let’s all get some sleep. We start indicting about a hundred people tomorrow for sedition and attempting to overthrow a duly elected president of the United States; there’s gonna be a whole lot of people wearing bright orange jump suits by tomorrow night.”

    Mr. Reine means to tell us that he, the Hilldabeast, Cackling Chuckie Schumer, Maxine Waters, every Democrat on Capitol Hill plus Miss Lindsey Graham, Jeff Flake, and Mitch “China Fleet” McConnell will then all breathe a sigh of relief in unison, announcing in public “Well, thank heavens that’s over! After all, he’s the boss; it’s his Department of Justice and his FBI. Time to move on to some more pressing matters”?

    Right, Phillipe. We believe you. After all, you’ve been right in all your past predictions. What office is it that President H.R. Clinton appointed you to, last January?

    After all the comments about obstruction and collusion and outright lies…. I just had to leave a copy of this fine time-line that I got today from a Ham radio friend back in the TX area:

    Can we use some/all of this somehow?….hope so….hang’em high! CHECK-6

    From 2001 to 2005 there was an ongoing investigation into the Clinton Foundation.

    A Grand Jury had been empaneled.

    Governments from around the world had donated to the “Charity”.

    Yet, from 2001 to 2003 none of those “Donations” to the Clinton Foundation were declared.

    You would think that an honest investigator would be able to figure this out.

    Guess who took over this investigation in 2002?

    None other than James Comey.

    Now, that’s interesting, isn’t it?

    Guess who was transferred in to the Internal Revenue Service to run the Tax Exemption Branch of the IRS?

    Lois Lerner.

    Now, that’s interesting, isn’t it?

    This is all just a series of strange coincidences, right?

    Guess who ran the Tax Division inside the Department of Injustice from 2001 to 2005?

    None other than the Assistant Attorney General of the United States, Rod Rosenstein.

    Now, that’s interesting, isn’t it?

    Guess who was the Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation during this time frame???

    Just a coincidence, just an anomaly in statistics and chances, Robert Mueller.

    What do all four casting characters have in common?

    They all were briefed and/or were front line investigators into the Clinton Foundation Investigation.

    Just a coincidence, right?

    Fast forward to 2009.

    James Comey leaves the Justice Department to go to Lockheed Martin.

    Hillary Clinton is running the State Department, with her own personal email server.

    The Uranium One “issue” comes to the attention of the Hillary.

    She decides to support the decision and approve the sale of 20% of US Uranium to no one other than, the Russians.

    You would think that this is a fairly straight up deal, except it wasn’t, the People got absolutely nothing out of it.

    However, prior to the sales approval, no one other than Arkansas Bill goes to Moscow, gets paid 500K for a one hour speech then meets with Vladimir Putin at his home for a few hours.

    No big deal right?

    The FBI had a mole inside the money laundering and bribery scheme.

    Guess who was the FBI Director at this time?

    Robert Mueller.

    He even delivered a Uranium Sample to Moscow in 2009.

    Guess who was handling that case within the Justice Department out of the US Attorney’s Office in Maryland.

    Rod Rosenstein.

    Guess what happened to the informant?

    The Department of Justice placed a GAG order on him and threatened to lock him up if he spoke out about it.

    Interesting, huh?

    How does 20% of the most strategic asset of the United States of America end up in Russian hands when the FBI has an informant, a mole providing inside information to the FBI on the criminal enterprise?

    Guess what happened soon after the sale was approved?

    ~145 million dollars in “donations” made their way into the Clinton Foundation from entities directly connected to the Uranium One deal.

    Guess who was still at the Internal Revenue Service working the Charitable Division?

    None other than, Lois Lerner.

    Interesting, huh?

    Fast forward to 2015.

    Due to a series of tragic events in Benghazi and after the 9 “investigations” the House, Senate and at State Department, Trey Gowdy who was running the 10th investigation as Chairman of the Select Committee on Benghazi discovers that Hillary ran the State Department on an unclassified, unauthorized, outlaw personal email server.

    He also discovered that none of those emails had been turned over when she departed her “Public Service” as Secretary of State which was required by law.

    He also discovered that there was Top Secret information contained within her personally archived email.

    Guess who became FBI Director in 2013?

    Guess who secured 17 no bid contracts for his employer with the State Department and was rewarded with a six million dollar thank you present when he departed his employer.

    No one other than James Comey.

    Amazing how all those no-bids just went right through at State.

    Now he is the FBI Director in charge of the “Clinton Email Investigation” after of course his FBI Investigates the Lois Lerner matter at the Internal Revenue Service and exonerates her.

    Nope, couldn’t find any crimes there.

    Can you guess what happened next?

    In April 2016, James Comey drafts an exoneration letter of Hillary Rodham Clinton, meanwhile the DOJ is handing out immunity deals like candy.

    They didn’t even convene a Grand Jury.

    Like a lightning bolt of statistical impossibility, like a miracle from God himself, like the true he is, James steps out into the cameras of an awaiting press conference on July the 8th of 2016, and exonerates Hillary from any wrongdoing.

    Is there a pattern here?

    Rosenstein becomes Asst. Attorney General, Comey gets fired based upon a letter by Rosenstein, Comey leaks government information to the press, Mueller is assigned to the Russian Investigation sham by Rosenstein to provide cover for decades of malfeasance within the FBI and DOJ and the story continues.

    FISA Abuse, political espionage….. pick a crime, any crime, chances are…… this group and a few others did it.

    All the same players.

    All compromised and conflicted.

    All connected in one way or another to the Clinton’s.

    As of this writing, the Clinton Foundation, in its 20+ years of operation of being the largest International Charity Fraud in the history of mankind, has never been audited by the Internal Revenue Service.

    Late to the commenting here, but looking at the threads above, my comment does fit here best.
    So, in my experience as a “systems detective”, i.e. finding bugs in complex software, I learned that the thing that could get in the way of finding a problem more often than anything else (except sheer incompetence) were “bedrock” assumptions one had going in. These are assumptions that are so firmly held you probably don’t even realize that they ARE assumptions, much less that they are false! Are there any such assumption in this investigation? Yes, I believe there is at least one “bedrock” assumption that we all share but may not be aware of, mostly because it is a very attractive one! But what if it isn’t true?

    The assumption I speak of is that “everybody” in the cast of miscreants we have followed here “knew that Hillary would win”. It is very attractive because we can easily imagine the shock and dismay of the bad guys – hell, most of us saw it play out on live TV!

    But suppose that one or more of the “Black Hats” knew that Hillary was in deep trouble, and knew it perhaps weeks in advance? With that context, can we explore the evidence we have screened through before with fresh eyes, and perhaps find a new or deeper understanding?

    Here’s my candidate for someone who may have been able to foresee what I’ll call the “Big Train-wreck”: Brennan. The CIA would be most likely to have the tools to correlate a million hints from the news and the polls and whatever else, and detect that all was not leading to a happy ending for Hillary, even as the MSM was chortling that it was.

    How would that change the interpretation of his actions? Who else would have probably known if Brennan did, because he would tell them? There are endless questions this opens up. And they could be asked about any of the Black Hats, of course. I pick Brennan because the CIA should have had the tools to predict the Big Train-wreck, and Brennan strikes me as the least vulnerable to the influence of media happy-talk.

      Ray Van Dune,

      ‘They’ KNEW the polls were completely made up happy horse manure. The objective of the fake polls was to fool the American people into thinking Hitlery’s win was above board and NOT the result of MASSIVE VOTER FRAUD. For example, in NC 22 out of 100 counties had MORE VOTES CAST than adult citizen residents. NC also had a train car load of ballots ‘found at the last minute’ that only had Hillary and the Democrat gov. marked on the ballot. 🤔

      Steve Pieczenik said there was a massive effort to prevent DNC voter fraud. IIRC Obama’s government tried to hack some of the state election apparatus and was prevented.

      I think they were sure Hillary would win, not because she would be voted in, but because of all the voter fraud in place.

That is nevertheless ridiculous with Trump having inherited a deeply corrupted DOJ.
