Schiff and Nadler Hiring Lawfare Members for Investigative Staff…

HPSCI Chairman Adam Schiff and Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler are hiring members of the anti-Trump “legal resistance movement”, ie Lawfare, to fill their key investigative staff roles.

Chairman Schiff announced his hiring of former SDNY U.S. Attorney Daniel Goldman today [See Here].  The associated network surrounding Goldman is filled with familiar names and ideological alignment.  The Schiff hiring of Goldman follows on the heels of Chairman Nadler hiring Obama Administration lawyer Norm Eisen and criminal defense attorney Barry Berke [See Here].

A brutally obvious aspect to this is how all of these Trump-hating characters have interests, multiple tiered conflicts, and are vested in the outcome of the congressional investigation of President Trump.  Heck, many of the players being absorbed by the congressional team staff are direct or indirect stakeholders in the investigative outcome.  Thus we see a typical Lawfare control pattern.

The appointment of Robert Mueller was primarily a shield against discovery of Obama White House, DOJ and FBI misconduct of historic proportions.  Mueller’s team was/is comprised of many active participants in the weaponization of government. The Mueller probe was/is a tool to defend themselves from exposure.

Some have speculated the Mueller probe may be winding down or coming to an end this month.  The most reasonable evidence therein seems to be the planned retirement of DAG Rod Rosenstein who would not be leaving the DOJ if his partner, Robert Mueller, was still deep into his investigative process.

However, I would caution anyone who may think a conclusion to Mueller’s probe is equivalent to the end of the investigative duty of those resistance Lawfare allies within his team.

Exactly the opposite is true.

Remember, Robert Mueller didn’t come into this process as an ‘outsider’, and Mueller didn’t select the team.  The corrupt team already inside government (FBI Counsel James Baker, DOJ Deputy Andrew Weissmann etc.) knew Mueller and they brought him in to lead the team.  Mueller didn’t select the team; the team selected their figurehead – Mueller.

The larger alliance of lawyers, insiders, and corrupt DOJ and FBI officials have metastasized tentacles that reach inside and outside of government.  In essence, Mueller’s official and unofficial crew will just move offices and become part of Adam Schiff and Jerry Nadler’s staff.

With some additions, the names and intentions stay the same for all of these characters, their location within the larger Lawfare resistance movement is all that changes.

The same career workers, officials and U.S. attorney’s who were within the corrupt Obama DOJ and FBI; some of whom exited to the private sector for a more effective resistance approach; will re-enter into the realm of House investigative staff to continue the same process under a different file name.   However, the activity is exactly the same.

Each of the corrupt metastatic worker bees shifts from weaponizing the Intelligence Community, White House, National Security Council, DOJ and FBI into weaponizing House committees.  The objectives and agenda remains the same.

In addition to the removal of U.S. President Donald Trump each of the crew also have a responsibility to cover for the higher level external stakeholders: President Obama, Susan Rice, Denis McDonough, Ash Carter, James Clapper, John Brennan, Loretta Lynch, Sally Yates, James Comey, Andrew McCabe, James Baker, Robert Mueller, Rod Rosenstein, Dana Boente and the former facilitating White House officials writ large.

New Yorker – Representative Adam Schiff, the chairman of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, has hired a veteran prosecutor with experience fighting Russian organized crime to lead his investigation of the Trump Administration.

Last month, according to a committee source, Daniel Goldman, who served as an Assistant United States Attorney in the Southern District of New York from 2007 to 2017, joined the committee’s staff as a senior adviser and the director of investigations.

The hiring of Goldman, who will be joined by two other former federal prosecutors on Schiff’s staff, underlines Schiff’s decision to conduct an aggressive investigation of the Trump campaign’s ties to Russia during the 2016 Presidential campaign. In the rough division of labor among the various committees in the House of Representatives, Schiff’s panel is tackling the most provocative and, so far, most elusive subject related to the President: whether so-called collusion occurred between the Trump campaign and Moscow.

In public comments, Schiff has suggested that Trump’s interest as a private citizen in building a tower in Moscow led him to curry favor with Vladimir Putin, the Russian President. American intelligence agencies long ago concluded that the Russian government made significant efforts, through the hacking of e-mails and use of social media, to help elect Trump over Hillary Clinton. The question of whether the Trump campaign facilitated, assisted, or knew about these efforts has been at the heart of the investigation by the special counsel, Robert Mueller—and will also be central to Schiff’s inquiry.

Goldman seems well suited to lead this effort. As deputy chief of the organized-crime section of the Manhattan U.S. Attorney’s office, Goldman supervised the prosecution of more than thirty defendants accused of racketeering, gambling, and money laundering. During his decade in the office, Goldman convicted individuals associated with Russian organized crime of securities fraud and health-care fraud, and convicted leading figures in the Genovese crime family of racketeering and murder.

One of Schiff’s previous committee hires drew a critical comment from the President. Last month, Schiff hired Abigail C. Grace, who served as an Asia-policy staffer on the National Security Council during the early part of the Trump Administration. In response, President Trump tweeted that the Democrats were going “nuts” and that Schiff was “stealing people who work at the White House.” In response, Schiff pointed out that congressional committees often employ individuals with experience in the executive branch.

Notice how the rats abandon their corrupt DOJ ship with Captain AG William Barr at the helm; and now jump into the corrupt House Committee ship for safe passage.

In actuality the corrupt usurpers were running amok inside the Executive Branch for over two years; now they transfer to the Legislative Branch to continue.  Setting the stage for a siege of the Executive.

All of this made possible by….

Wait for it…..

Yup, primarily DAG Rod Rosenstein.

FUBAR!

      Absolutely just look at Donna Brazile’s tweet:

      Take out the hash tags and it reads, “Madam Speaker today, President Pelosi shortly thereafter. Martin Luther King Weekend is underway. Keep Hope Alive!” That is definitely a message to someone. Either a signal to others that it’s a go, or a warning, or both.

      The obvious part of this message is Madam Speaker today, President Pelosi shortly thereafter. Both with hashtags – so it wasn’t a mistake. It was directly intended to read as it was written.

          Rand Paul is being Rand Paul, his no vote supports his small government cause and he represents libertarians, who are slavers. If the President couldn’t veto this because of Paul, I doubt if he would do a McCain and vote against the veto.

          President Trump re-elected himself at his CPAC speech. If you haven’t seen that speech, watch it. Watch it twice. His energy is incredible and the content immense. He is Stronger than ever.
          Since that speech, Hillary, Bloomberg and Eric Holder dropped out of running for President, in 2020. This is ‘huge’.
          Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz, I don’t care for him or his $4 burnt coffee, comes out and wants to run as a Democrat, but he can’t because he is a capitalist. So he wants to go as an independent and gets trashed by the left. I think he is the first leftwing candidate that might give the President a run in 2020, but he is to right wing.
          Thank you Covington kids. Finally somebody is getting sued besides conservatives.
          The Democrats, winning the House has let the Democrat Socialist agenda out of the bag.
          This will lose the house for them in 2020.
          The Rino’s are losing where it counts. 93% approval rating among Republicans support the President.
          12 State legislators have introduced legislation to be counted in the Presidential election as popular vote only. That puts these states under Federal election laws, where AG Burr would be in charge of the vote counts. All 12 states commit the most nefarious voter fraud in the country. I’m in.

    I’m told they operate with impunity, but what I see is that after years of getting everyone’s attention, Mueller’s Muh Russia has spectacularly crashed and burned. The position of “the resistance” is much weaker than before, as the corrupt cabal (small group) running the executive branch has been removed from power.

    So now the next group of desperate men seeking desperate measures steps up and hopes to get us to look towards Trump and away from their crimes. However, in so doing they only call more attention to themselves. Meanwhile, the world has moved on and new power structures have aligned. As “the resistance” hangs together to avoid hanging, they just become more exposed and more toxic to the those in power who increasingly wish to move beyond them.

    Don’t get me wrong, I understand that how all of this has kept them out of prison to date. But that is just “to date”. They are in quicksand. If they do nothing, they go down, but every time they move they just get in deeper.

Funnily enough (forms accessed multiple times, from multiple directions) every attempt was rejected along with a message to the effect: Attempt to verify human sender failed.

    And I did NOT vote for the hag…

    House Judiciary Committee Chairman Nadler:

    I see from the House Judiciary Committee web page…

    https://judiciary.house.gov/news/press-releases/house-judiciary-committee-unveils-investigation-threats-against-rule-law

    …you/”your Committee” are preparing to investigate President Trump’s “Threats Against the Rule of Law”.

    Though:
    1) I am not in your representational district, and
    2) I did not vote for President Trump in 2016,
    I write to you in your role as Chairman of the Committee as a – VERY – concerned American. Why am I concerned?

    Following the 2016 elections, I purposefully paid zero attention to any/all “national news”…no TV, radio, newspapers, web, etc. I did so because “living life” took precedence over “petty politics” – and all the aggravation too-often accompanying it.

    A year ago, I re-engaged “with the national political scene”…and have remained engaged since. Color me appalled.

    It’s one thing to respectfully disagree with fellow Americans’ differing opinions. and quite another to unreservedly sign up to (as you wholeheartedly have):

    1) sedition (the “soft coup” attempt)
    2) 24/7 character assassination of a sitting President;
    3) active support of the shameless and shameful media indoctrination involving overt hypocrisy, selective-coverage-blindness, “narrative ‘news’ ” active-lies, etc., etc., etc.

    By all measures available to me, it appears to me that – as Committee Chair – you are actively about to publicly embark on the worst sort of Congressional dog-n-pony show, all the while attempting to shroud yourself in false patriotism and as hypocritically “constitutional.” Indulging in sermonizing of the sort President Trump’s immediate predecessor was so fond of, “You should be ashamed of yourself.”

    For the record, I fully expect your Committee’s political posturing will have exactly the opposite effect to that you (apparently) hope it will on the population of Americans retaining an open mind about ‘the state of things in D.C.’ As a group, Americans have more good sense and basic intelligence than many Democrats seem to give them credit for.

    I’ll vote for PT in 2020. I admire the h&ll out of the guy, but I’m profoundly disappointed in the WH response to this entire administrative coup attempt. Tweeting doesn’t cut it. It is not a sound offensive strategy.

    PT gets to choose his team. I’m hoping, but not going to bet a paycheck, that Barr investigates and if required prosecutes EVERY one of the coup perps. That includes obama, brennan, clapper… . Nothing can be done with the Dem house except to put up with them then vote them out.

    PT is not stupid, he certainly must see the forces arrayed against him and their intent. One would think he would respond to the Dems staffing by hiring and task organizing a Swamp Draining fire team to take active measures in response to their nonstop attacks and conniving. I believe this is beyond the acceptable “politics” of a healthy society. It must be punished. No hero points for taking a ton of crapola from corrupt bureaucrats and nut job congressmen. None. Not impressive.

    Righteously crushing them and punishing their corruption is beyond appropriate and good for the country. They must pay a high price for the abuse of their authority. The theory is they work for us, they answer to us. Many of them (on both sides of the is aisle) seem to have forgotten.

    The swamp is not being drained. It was a campaign promise. Absorbing abuse and punishment is not winning. We didn’t elect a martyr we want a dragon slayer. What will happen in 2024 (if PT is reelected) if there is a crazed Lefty scheisse stick elected? Prediction: ALL the good work accomplished by PT will be reversed PDQ. Much like PT erased obama’s pile of anti-American “accomplishments.”

      The Swamp started draining in November, anyone who thinks it was going to happen quickly and all at one time is pretty unrealistic. Low hanging fruit comes off first, the rest has to be plucked with more effort. But it will happen. President Trump will allow some to commit suicide, others will burn out, the remaining must be removed, and he will use a variety of ways to eliminate the majority of America’s staunchest enemies. And if you are paying attention, you will see some of them cannibalize each other (watch Pelosi take out AOC and Omar, that process is underway. The Dem 2020 team will also end up as a circular firing squad, too). Fear not, and be of good cheer and faithful to what is right and good. Spread the word, remind those who are discouraged!

Couple this with the new attacks on the electoral college [ now in my state of Maine] the dems could feel that they may prevail without impeachment.
    On the other side, the visceral hatred displayed daily by nadler, schitt and others [ don’t forget the crazy lady running the house] could easily lead to a full throated charge over the precipice to the oblivion of a loss in the senate.
    So, what’s your flavor? I think the memory of the bubba impeachment and the devastating costs to the republicans will delay an actual move by the dems and they will continue with the trio of investigations right into late summer of 2020 complete with lies and deceit like you have never seen before.
    UNLESS, POTUS springs his Inchon landing and simultaneously breaks out of the Pusan Perimeter this month of March 2019. Now, I would love that move. Time to make the donuts.

      VSPGPDJT can’t do a whole lot until the right judges are on the bench. What good would it do to indict someone if the only judge to preside over the case would be a Soetoro pick who would dismiss due to ‘lack of standing?’

    Caputo not going to cooperate with Nadlers request.

    WaPo snip

    “Caputo told The Washington Post that he has already begun coordinating with four other Trump associates who received requests from the committee this week to begin a joint strategy of resisting requests for testimony.

    “All four are reluctant to appear because they believe it’s a perjury trap designed to move toward impeachment of the president,” he said.”

    Why not, they’ve already hired every Democrat hitman BS lawyer their imaginations could handle and come up dry.

    I guess they think this guy is going to be the magic stooge whose Clarence Darrow mind is going to get them a conviction where all else have failed. The Magic Lawyer – that mythical guy who understands law on a different level than mere mortals.

    They’ve found their “big lie”, aka, the BS premise that whereas the Trump Campaign became less and less enamored of a Trump Tower in Moscow the more likely it looked he might actually win the election, the dream lived on in Cohen’s mind and he continued pursuing it. If they disagree, one of them must be “lying.”

    They will also, of course, trot out Felix Sater, the real estate agent who continued trying to put something together long after anybody with a brain knew the deal was dead. What is it that real estate agents do? I forget.

    So, the Big Lie here is supposedly that Trump & Co. “lied” about this deal by saying it dissolved in early 2016 when in “reality” he pursued it into the fall of 2016.

    Really? Really? Did Bill and Hillary have business interests they pursued before the election “in the ordinary course” in the event she lost?

    Send up the pigeons. That’s not illegal, and neither especially is having differing opinions as to its waxing or waning importance of the naming rights to a dump in Moscow in the run-up to the election.

    Even if Cohen and Felix are telling the truth, who cares? This is the very sort of “lie” Democrats love: They know their constituents are too stupid to take into account two competing inferences from the same series of events. Maybe, just maybe, Cohen and Mr. Felix were hoping, praying, that this deal would happen and hence kept “updating” team Trump, who by that time could care less? But, damn that reasonable doubt. Like any other “victim”, Cohen is to be believed.

    How’s that, Stupid? In any event, these nabobs have Sater all teed up in coming days, so expect more blah blah.

    I, for one, have a life. I’ve had enough. This is become Disco. I’ve heard it, and hated it before.

    As I was eating lunch today, the TV was on and some of the Russia stuff was being talked about. Everyone was sick of it. Many of them only follow it very loosely.

    When Mueller delivers his report, and there are no crimes enumerated, EVERYONE will recognize the Democrats hearings for what they are…. and they will likely be ineffective.

      Actually, Bryan, I think they actually may very well be effective…in totally revealing the full-throated and full-steam effort to subvert the will of The People and remove a duly elected President from office. History has shown that Americans will not stand for it. The price to be paid will be heavy, and it will be exacted by the American Voter at the ballot box in November of 2020.

      If you have any doubt, just look at Sundance’s post today about who won’t be running against President Trump next year. They know what’s coming.

      Good Times, Bryan. Good Times 😁

    PDJT is NOT sitting around freaking out about all this. He has seen it coming. He does have a rapid response team. We just don’t see it. He is not going to just sit and take this forever. There is soon going to come a moment when he throws down the hammer. I personally have more and more confidence in Barr every day that I see the Dems and deep state freak out. When Jim Comey pops his head out of the ground and talks about how that Barr needs to be transparent I know he is Schiffing his pants. Judgment day is coming.

      You’ll get a whiff on March 15th. No response whatsoever to Jordan’s letter will be a problem. Acknowledgement and something reasonable like at least timetable and openness to closed door testimony would be a step in the right direction. More than that would be gravy at this point. Barr’s willingness to work with Congress (well, Jordan and crew) in a constructive manner would be positive.

      I know it’s hard to remember… seems like a couple decades ago… Nunes, Jordan, et al were threatening the acting Attorney General Of The United States Of America with impeachment proceedings. Now THAT’S dysfunctional.

    “I would caution anyone who may think a conclusion to Mueller’s probe is equivalent to the end of the investigative duty of those resistance Lawfare allies within his team.”

    The hilarious thing is that Schiff and Cohorts are already publicly dismissing the Mueller Report as insufficient and flawed. Before anybody has seen it. Schiff knows what’s “in” it, of course. in fact, everybody kinda does at this point with all the recent talk of “lowering expectations”. So Mueller was the linchpin for 2 years. Now Mueller is a turd. Welcome to The Club, Adam! This is what we’ve been trying to tell you all along!

    The other hilarious thing is Schiff’s insistence on following the Russian Collusion thread… and more so his absurd, 2-year insistence that “there is absolutely evidence of Russian Collusion, but I can’t show it to anybody.” I mean, duuude. Seriously. Everybody willing to face reality that the Russia Collusion Farce was just that… and that the proverbial Mueller Jig is up… has gone on to other pursuits. Financial corruption. Obstruction. Various other fantasies and fetishes. Not The Thumb. Oh, no… he knows something nobody else does, and he’s going to find Russian Collusion if it’s the last thing he does. Makes you wonder exactly who is in his text history besides those we already know about…. Gang of Eight and all that.

    Jim Jordan was just now on Fox complaining about the list of those 81 people asked for documents by the Nadler and Shiff.
    He was upset that the 2 most important people weren’t on that list: Glenn Simpson and Steele.

    Ok, well, why can’t Republicans add their names to the list?

    Why can’t Jim Jordan request documents from them?

      The democrats are suffering from a mass form of borderline personality disorder. They are not just trying to destroy Trump. They are destroying America. We and our way of life is under siege. Trump has to put out all documetation that shed day light on the true enemies of the people. As much hell as the left has raised about these documents is a damn good indicator of the lefts fear of exposure. This fear reaches the very center of the cancer investing our government. The FBI, DOJ, and white house career staff and many so called loyalists. The senate, congress and many judges are also invested. This is not a swamp but rather an ocean. The documents are the sonaumi needed to flushout the corruption and enable us to rebuild our country.
