Mueller’s “Other Criminal Investigation” That Michael Flynn Has Supported…

There are elements who took the redacted portions of the Mueller sentencing memorandum, and the notes of Flynn’s assistance in an unrelated criminal matter, to point out a possibility Flynn’s “other criminal investigation” assistance, might be an investigation headed by U.S. Attorney Huber.

The baseline for that hypothesis would be: (a) Mueller would intentionally point to a criminal investigation adverse to his ideological interests; and (b) that Mueller’s special counsel team might also be willing to take down a team member of the administrative state in some sort blind justice quest.  Nonsense.

That is classic victim projection toward the abuser: if we just make Mueller’s team better sandwiches they will also target “their side“…. Yeah, no; it doesn’t work like that.

The special counsel team, all of them, have one directional focus and it is the same focus as written outlining the only target in their DOJ mandate of targets: President Trump.

So what is the “other criminal investigation” that Flynn is/was helping with.  Easy, the New York Times spelled it out today:

WASHINGTON — Federal prosecutors in Virginia are investigating a secret Turkish lobbying effort that once involved Michael T. Flynn, the former national security adviser, even as Mr. Flynn’s role in the special counsel’s investigation winds down, according to people familiar with the inquiry.

Robert S. Mueller III, the special counsel, had been handling the case and at some point referred it back to prosecutors in Alexandria, Va., who had originally opened the investigation, the people said. A veteran national security prosecutor is overseeing the case, and a grand jury has been empaneled to hear evidence.

Prosecutors for Mr. Mueller appeared to make reference to the investigation in documents released on Tuesday that enumerated Mr. Flynn’s cooperation in the Russia inquiry. The heavily redacted documents created an air of mystery about Mr. Flynn’s “substantial help” in several unspecified but continuing investigations. Prosecutors cited Mr. Flynn’s assistance as grounds for leniency when a judge sentences him on Dec. 18.

The Turkey case appears to fit as one of those inquiries because Mr. Flynn has direct knowledge of aspects under scrutiny. Prosecutors are examining Mr. Flynn’s former business partners and clients who financed a campaign against Fethullah Gulen, a cleric living in Pennsylvania whom the Turkish government has accused of helping instigate a failed coup. (more)

Nice and tidy.  No risk to the small group.

Always remember, the journalists, editors, narrative engineers and executives within the New York Times, Washington Post, Lawfare and corrupt intelligence apparatus are comrades.  They attend the same parties party together; go to the same concerts together; BBQ with each-other; exchange Christmas/Hanukah gifts with each-other; take vacations together and are part of the exact same ideological community.  All of it.

•Remember Adam Waldman texting SSCI Vice-Chairman Mark Warner about their joint vacation plans?  •Remember FBI Agent Peter Strzok texting with FBI/DOJ lawyer Lisa Page about barbecuing with his good friend FISA Judge Contreras?  •Remember FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe and his wife having financial connections to McAulliffe?

This is how they roll; they see nothing wrong with it.  They don’t break the rules, because they make up the rules.  There is no conflict of interest in their mind.  This is just life… ordinary swamp life.  They know what each of them “intends”, so when any one of them intersects with the legal apparatus they know there’s no criminal intention.  They know each-other because they live with each-other, 24/7/365.

It’s a Big Club, and we ain’t in it.

Mueller, the team and not the individual, would never even think to investigate a member of their ideological community…. let alone outline in some document (they know will be well reviewed by the public) that any member of their community is in an adverse legal position.

They simply don’t do that.

If you accept the fundamental nature of the swamp you can avoid a lot of disappointment; and you can entirely dismiss a ton of opinion and analysis that is structured around a well-intentioned framework that inside this community there are honorable or virtuous people.   There ain’t.  Period.

Here’s a pro-tip:  If you want to honestly review DC outcomes… “The only time you ever be guaranteed to be wrong, is when you project good intentions”.

Robert Mueller, the team not the individual, has one central purpose to protect “their  people” and “their institutions“.

♦(1) Create an investigation – Just by creating the investigation it is then used as a shield by any corrupt FBI/DOJ official who would find himself/herself under downstream congressional investigation.  Former officials being deposed/questioned by IG Horowitz or Congress could then say they are unable to answer those questions due to the ongoing special counsel investigation.  In this way Mueller provides cover for officials.

♦(2)  Use the investigation to keep any and all inquiry focused away from the corrupt DOJ and FBI activity that took place in 2015, 2016, 2017.  Keep the media narrative looking somewhere, anywhere, other than directly at the epicenter of the issues. In this way, Mueller provides distraction and talking points against the Trump administration.

♦(3) Use the investigation to suck-up, absorb, any damaging investigative material that might surface as a result of tangentially related inquiry.  Hide any evidence adverse to their united interests. Example: control the exposure of evidence against classified leak participants like SSCI Director of Security, James Wolfe. In this way Mueller provides cover for the institutions and the administrative state.

In all of these objectives the Mueller special counsel has been stunningly effective.  He is protecting his people; he will never, ever, take action against one of his people.  EVER.

    Sundance, unfortunately this clarity appears badly needed. Thanks for articulating it succinctly and with emphasis. Especially: “Nonsense” and “That is classic victim projection toward the abuser…”

      All accurate except for this “Robert Mueller, the team not the individual, has one central purpose to protect “their people” and “their institutions“.

      The main purpose was to create the many crimes to undermine Trump and protect Hillary and Obama and later turned into covering up their own crimes including Muellers involvement in Uranium One ! Mueller himself is one of the criminals and few seem to grasp that simple fact. The overall cover up was also for the lead up to the Mueller Russia sham and the undermining of Trump was icing on the cake at a later date ! Which of course is still in motion 24/7/365.

      The depth and numbers of all these crimes is mind boggling. But that is not a valid reason to let any of it slide. We must see prosecutions or USA is no longer a valid and legitimate country !

The article includes a section that partially explains what Mueller did, when he was the FBI Director, to make the FBI systemically more corrupt and incompetent. That section is especially important; it is excerpted below.

          […]The phrase “statute of limitations” refers to the time period within which formal criminal charges must be brought after a crime has been committed…. Therefore, in most instances, prosecutions are barred if the defendant can show that there was no indictment or other formal charge filed within the time period dictated by the statute of limitations….

      Eeyore — we’re doomed in everything, we’re going to lose, there’s no hope to defeat the Deep State (unspecific, ignores counterexamples, just overall negatively fatalistic).

      Truth — After watching things play out for two years, I don’t believe in Stealth Jeff. Nor do I believe that Mueller will prosecute any black hats (specific, evidence-based, not ‘generally’ negative but negative about one particular thing).

      Being honest helps people defeat Eeeyore-ism. If all is doom, then there is no reason for anyone to do anything. But if you can point out specific instances of wasted time (One-Letter worship, Stealth Jeff, Mueller is a good guy), then the people who might otherwise waste time on them can instead use their energies to win the larger fight.

      Waiting and hoping on Mueller is a proven losing strategy. Don’t shoot the messenger for pointing that out.

      As most recall, Sundance took time to weigh all the evidence before coming to this conclusion. Like most of us, he wanted to believe otherwise.

      But this is reality. And if for some reason it changes, and Mueller actually goes after a black hat, we’ll all be thrilled. But expecting it to change is living in a dream world. And telling people they believe in a dream world is a good way to help them succeed back in reality, where the fight is taking place.

        Every time Sundance presses his points about Q, Sessions, the lack of “white hats” and so on, more longtime posters disappear to websites where they can discuss Q theories and the secret 4D chess of Sessions without their dream worlds being disturbed.

        Nevertheless, I’m glad that Sundance is cultivating a readership that prefers facts to fantasies. Even when the facts are unpleasant, like what Trump (and his supporters, us) are facing.

    20 But the chief priests and elders persuaded the multitude that they should ask Barabbas, and destroy Jesus.

    21 The governor answered and said unto them, Whether of the twain will ye that I release unto you? They said, Barabbas.
    22 Pilate saith unto them, What shall I do then with Jesus which is called Christ? They all say unto him, Let him be crucified.
    23 And the governor said, Why, what evil hath he done? But they cried out the more, saying, Let him be crucified.

    24 When Pilate saw that he could prevail nothing, but that rather a tumult was made, he took water, and washed his hands before the multitude, saying, I am innocent of the blood of this just person: see ye to it.

    Power corrupts

    Those with their hands on the puppet strings of power do not accept honorable people of integrity, which is why we have the political class and the media class we see today

    It’s also why political and media power is consolidated in very few tight knit locations

    It’s the club, and before entering, one needs to prove they’d sell out their own mother for wealth, power and/or ideology

    The corrupt and criminal behemoth that now rules the roost can only be defeated by an informed, united and free people, which they’re working feverishly to cut down to size with unlimited immigration, illegal immigration, refugee scams and the brainwashing of our youth

    This could very well be our last stand. We either open the doors of truth and the people respond, or we sink by the weight of our own foolishness

    This seems very simple to me, if I understand it clearly. Team Mueller has had problems with the Flynn prosecution from the beginning. How they got their evidence, etc. They postponed his sentencing at least three times. They need this to go away, but they can’t walk away from it without exposing themselves. So, they get Flynn to agree to a deal, they have something on him, Turkey, but they agree to no jail to settle the entire affair. Flynn is military, a team player, he and his family agree to go along in order to save what assets they have left, and his future earning ability. Others may not have taken this route, Roger Stone, Corsi, Papadopolous may be better off making a scene, but not Flynn. Wouldn’t surprise me if Mueller made a few phone calls to help out Flynn with future opportunities just to make this go away. Just my opinion.

          After the latest Russia-Ukraine incident, where the Ukrainian sailors were taken into Russian custody, Pres Trump cancelled the meeting with Putin. No other U.S. President would have had to do this. Every other U.S. President has been free to negotiate with the Russians. Pres Trump’s hands are tied, due to the Mueller damage done to Pres Trump.

          Mueller announced the latest Cohen indictments as Pres Trump was leaving for the G20 in Argentina, a blatant slap in Pres Trump’s face to embarrass Pres Trump on the world stage. That is not only REAL damage to Pres Trump, it is also real damage to the U.S.

      “Mueller was turned. He has been working for the good guys since the day he was appointed”

      Dan Bongino did a great podcast about 6-9 months ago that showed Mr. Mueller was black as a chimney sweep covered in coal dust. I don’t remember the title or exact date of the podcast.

      But I do have this, which has received the endorsement of Judicial Watch (by sending out a link to it about a week after it came out):

      Robert Mueller’s Beltway Cover-Up
      By Lee Smith March 13, 2018

      By using the justice system as a political weapon, Mueller and his supporters in both parties are confirming what many Americans already believe: We are not all equal under one law.

      “….Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein appointed him nearly a year ago to lead an investigation without parameters. That’s because Mueller’s job is to obscure the abuses of the US surveillance apparatus that occurred under the Obama administration.

      The fact that someone at the level of former FBI director was called in to sweep up the mess left by bad actors in the bureau and Central Intelligence Agency and other parts of the intelligence bureaucracy suggests that the problems are even worse than previously thought. And that means the constituency for Mueller’s political intervention is enormous….”

To the politicians and the people that surround them in the Swamp, a day will soon come when they are all removed from their taxpayer funded checks.

    Why people bet against Trump, I have no idea. He’s been kicking the Swamp’s Ass since DAY 1 of his Presidency. The efficiency of DJT’s administration is astonishing. The list of President Trump’s accomplishments is too long to mention. Winamins are President Trump’s fuel that fires his Presidential engine that is running full steam ahead and can NOT be stopped. They can’t stop President Donald John Trump and his fellow deplorable voters.

    It would seem that a counter-witch hunt is in order with another SP (say Rudy G.) based on the several IG investigations. It should be broad enough to encapsulate the entire swamp so that you can pick off key individuals from DOJ, FBI, Mueller group, Clinton Foundation, Obama et al, House, Senate, media, K street (Podestas). Bring some charges and then have a legitimate cause to un-redact and you might see a few of these shenaniganists back off. Just throw a lot of flaming cocktails into the swamp and let them roar about it all so the public forgets about Mueller and the House loses steam on impeachment. Counter-punch hard with the same tactics while walking softly and carrying a BIGLY stick. For good measure, investigate Soros and watch them really howl. Cast a wide net and just smile, PDJT…

    As always, Sundance, thank you for your good work. I’ll restate slightly —
    “[Opinions and analysis will be flawed and false if they are] … structured around a well-intentioned framework that inside this community there are honorable or virtuous people. There ain’t. Period. … The only time you are ever guaranteed to be wrong, is when you project good intentions”.

    Thank you for articulating this because, here, precisely, is one of the larger points of skepticism with the qAnon phenomenon — so much of it is aimed at convincing us — reinforcing/confirming our biases — that there are “honorable or virtuous people” in the swamp who are going to “save” us or “save the Republic” or “help” POTUS do those things or something something and something else.

    Ain’t it the truth about projecting our “good “intentions? We simply are caught offguard when people don’t think the way we do. People never fail to blindside me with the depth of their character flaws. But here’s the rub: Most of us never think of ourselves as truly bad, and neither do most bad guys. We all mean well.

    Humanity finds all manner of convoluted explanations to excuse ourselves from culpability. Yet most of us are guilty of the very sins we constantly project onto others.

    Maybe that’s why The Lord’s Prayer asks Him to forgive us our trespasses “as we forgive those..”
    If we don’t find a way to absolve each other of sin, we can never pull ourselves out of that Devil’s dance.

    Sometimes I wonder if we were made flesh expressly to demonstrate or manifest the fruit of our own natures. Then we spend the better part of a lifetime shadow boxing with ourselves.

    …and while we’re on the topic of General Flynn, has anyone else noticed how many Q followers that Flynn is in turn following?

    I’ve been observing his twitter activity for a while now – almost 8-10 months. He hasn’t said a word since Dec 2nd, 2017, but the subtle activity on his account tells an interesting story.

    For someone who has “flipped” and is “cooperating with Mueller against Trump”, he sure does follow and continue to follow everyday MAGA Trump supporters. Interestingly, an account called “Clandestine Rosenstein” (who advocates for the idea that Mueller/Rosenstein are grey hats who have been leveraged or otherwise struck a deal with Trump to assist in taking down the deep state. Noteworthy is the fact that this Clandestine Rosenstein account has been suspended about 2-3 times but Flynn has re-followed the account every time – most recently today after the account posted the following thread:

    Of course I will say that a follow isn’t necessarily an endorsement of any person (for example I follow a lot of people on Twitter who I think are complete morons).

    So I’ll toss this out with with full acceptance of criticism to my theorem: some of you know that I toil in the deepest depths of liberal academe… but still fight, day-by-day to convert, one-by-one, the deceived…

    Conservative Treehouse is the most politically astute source on the internet (thanks Sundance!) with the most informed (and decorum abiding) commenters as well (thanks posters)…

    My sense is that the, currently, the end DOES justify the means (sadly) because we have been forced to scum ourselves with the tactics of our enemies, so here’s my strategy —

    1. There is an entrenched corruption that we must be overcome to save our nation.
    2. You will never convince a disillusioned and covetous person (liberals) to choose the “truthful and rational path” (i.e., I can’t waste time on why our current President of these United States, is not the best thing that has occurred in 14 years…)
    3. Due to voter fraud we must not win 51% but, more likely, 62/63% of the vote…
    4. So, the solution is this: convince them that each entrenched politician is screwing them royally (it’s not that hard) and we can rebuild with neophytes (left or right). That’s my current strategy….
    5. They fall for it every time….
    6. We need to replace everyone in the system to save the system…
