Review The Dates: Mueller Special Counsel Shaped Prosecution of Obama Lawyer Greg Craig…

There is considerable interest surrounding a federal indictment (full pdf below) of President Obama legal counsel Greg Craig today for lying to federal investigators about his lobbying efforts for Ukraine.  However, some of the details within the indictment are being conveniently glossed over.  First the DOJ announcement:

WASHINGTON – A federal grand jury today returned an indictment charging Gregory B. Craig, a Washington-based lawyer, with making false statements and concealing material information about his activities on behalf of Ukraine from the Department of Justice, National Security Division’s Foreign Agents Registration Act Unit (FARA Unit).

The announcement was made by Assistant Attorney General for National Security John C. Demers, U.S. Attorney Jessie K. Liu for the District of Columbia, and Assistant Director in Charge William F. Sweeney, Jr. of the FBI’s New York Field Office.

Craig, 74, of Washington, D.C., was indicted by a grand jury in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia for willfully falsifying and concealing material facts from the FARA Unit, in violation of Title 18, United States Code, Section 1001(a)(1), and for making false and misleading statements to the FARA Unit, in violation Title 22, United States Code, Section 618(a)(2). (more)

OK, so he lied to federal investigators, right?

But what’s missing from the DOJ release, that can only been caught if you actually read the indictment, is that his lies were to Robert Mueller and the special counsel.

Now, take a look at the dates:

Mr. Craig was caught lying on October 19th, 2017.   Why wasn’t Greg Craig charged by the special counsel at the same time Mueller, Rosenstein and Weissmann were prosecuting Manafort or Flynn?  Why the delay?

Even more interesting…. why hand it off?  The Section 1001(a)(1) charge is the same exact charge applied to Michael Flynn a month later.  Why did Mueller, Rosenstein and Weissmann chose to avoid Greg Craig, pass off his case, then turn around and charge Michael Flynn with the exact same violation?

What we see here is a transparent political effort to enhance the Section 1001(a)(1) charge against Flynn (Team Trump), by hiding the Section 1001(a)(1) against Craig (Team Obama).

How long did Mueller, Rosenstein and Weissmann sit on the Craig evidence before turning it over to the DC prosecutors?  Unknown…. The grand jury was seated seven months later in May 2018, and it appears the DC DOJ also sat on the indictment, waiting to release until Mueller, Rosenstein and Weissmann were complete.  Unsealed today, April 11, 2019.

Why?

Politics.  That’s why.

As if the U.S. Department of Justice needed to showcase more evidence of their politicization, this factual timeline does not bode well for their appearances.

Additionally, Ms. Jessie Liu, the DC State Attorney who would be responsible for participating in this political effort, is also a likely candidate to be promoted inside Main Justice….. which should trigger multiple warning flares right now.  Why?…

Jessie K. Liu, the U.S. Attorney for the District of Columbia, was assigned the criminal referral of fired FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe (April 19, 2018); and was in charge of the impaneled grand jury (Approx. July 2018); [9 months ago]

Given the distance from the original McCabe grand jury investigation (9 months); and accepting the current high-profile book tour by Andrew McCabe; and considering Ms. Liu is soon to exit as U.S. Attorney for DC; it would appear legal issues around McCabe are no longer looming.

Ms. Liu would also have been a decision-maker in the arrest of Senate Intelligence Committee Security Director, James Wolfe: grand jury (May 3rd 2018); indictment (June 7th 2018), non-prosecution, plea deal, and eventual sentence (December 20th 2018).

Ms. Liu is said to be getting promoted, if confirmed, to be the Associate Attorney General; the Justice Department’s No. 3 top official [replacing Rachael Brand].  None of this inspires a lick of confidence that anyone inside the DOJ is an earnest administrator of unbiased justice.   To the contrary, the DOJ and FBI corruption appears metastatic.

UPDATE: Correction to above: Mrs. Liu withdrew her name 3/28/19:  US Attorney Jessie Liu has withdrawn herself from consideration for the No. 3 spot at the Justice Department, spokesperson Kerri Kupec said Thursday. (link)

FUBAR…. all of it.

Here’s the Craig Gregory indictment.  Decide for yourself:

          Like McCabe? The level of FUBAR can not be communicated.

          What can be communicated is that the DoJ has no credibility. This country has been completely polarized and both sides now think the DoJ is corrupt (most of the Fed gvt for that matter) and for good reason. They’re about politics not justice.

          The looney Left hates them because they didn’t oust PT and our side despises them because they can’t be trusted to apply the law equally to all citizens. Miss Liu is a case in point.

          Unequal justice and the legitimate fear that the nations LE system is corrupt and biased makes for an unhappy and uncooperative populace.

          For Dir Wray to continue to stiff arm the public and “protect the institutions” is a joke. There is no longer anything to protect.

      A reason was not given for why she decided not to pursue the opportunity to become the third highest ranking official at the Justice Department.

      Instead, she will serve as chairwoman of the Attorney General’s Advisory Committee, the department said in a statement.

    According to current reporting, Mueller handed off this case to the SDNY, and they declined to investigate. Why? Why when in the same reports they essentially state he was doing the same things as Paul Manafort?

    Just an idea an I’d be happy if anyone knows why this would not be true:

    The idea of a special counsel (as opposed to a regular prosecutor reporting to the Attorney General under traditional oversight rules) is that he is (supposed to be) investigating things that would normally present a conflict of interest for the Attorney General or the head of the Executive Branch. This wouldn’t be the case for a prosecution if Craig so it’s possible that the special counsel decided it’s not within his purview and hence handed it off. This would not explain why the regular prosecutors delayed so much though.

      Exactly. This was a left over “clean up” item that didn’t need a Special Counsel to pursue, just like the SC is not prosecuting Manafort in the Eastern District of Virginia criminal case. The Grand Jury was empaneled in 2018 and probably has a one-year term, meeting once a week to be presented indictments.

In January of this year Skadden lost a civil suit with the DOJ and was fined 4.6 million dollars for ‘misleading’ about the work they had done.

    Attorney General William P. Barr issued the following statement:

    “I was pleased to recommend Jessie Liu to President Trump for the position of Associate Attorney General and am grateful that he has nominated her. Jessie has distinguished herself as a first-class attorney in private practice, in the Treasury Department, and in five different positions over her career at the Department of Justice. Today she leads more than 300 prosecutors at our nation’s largest U.S. Attorney office, where she has achieved significant accomplishments, including prosecuting several significant False Claims Act cases and implementing the Department’s pilot initiative on sexual harassment in public housing. With her record of public service, particularly in civil justice and federal law enforcement matters, it is clear that she will be an outstanding addition to our leadership team at the Department.”

    So Tony Podesta gets FARA immunity to testify against Manafort. Free pass.
    SDNY allows Greg Craig’s FARA violation to go past the statute of limitation expiration date. Free pass.
    But Barr becomes AG, and now Greg Craig is charged with lying? Not a free pass after all.
    Do I have this right? I wonder what Tony’s immunity deal includes.

    So far, Mueller’s Hunt for Red October has only landed him some fish that stink to high heaven. Notice that all the indictments were basically to “Shake and Break” ? To get them to roll over OR play dead? Same here with our Obama lawyer Mr. Fixit who just so happens to know lots about the dirty shenanigans pulled by Clinton and Obama and Biden with Ukraine and Russia and Iran. Mueller let the dirtbag slide with Obama’s handkerchief stuffed in his mouth.

    I’m feeling very positive while knowing that if this clean up with prosecutions of the guilty fails, we are done. There’s so much muck behind the scenes which i’m unable to fathom, but i’m very happy with the trend and what’s out in the public domain. Think of where we were when muller was announced as the SC, and all the lies thrown out by current and past doj, fbi, media and the complicit politicians. How depressing it was then. Every anti-Trumper’s hair has been on fire over the muller report and now Barr’s testimony. The words Spy, Coup, Sedition and Treason are flying through the air from more and more sources. Now, we are fighting to the death, and not only do we know it, but PDJT knows it and has put everything on the line. For us. The cracks showing up since Barr took over , imho, are in the process of shattering the deep state’s hopes and dreams of taking back power, of skating away scot free. My gut tells me this is going all the way to the top. I feel so blessed to be alive, after living through the horrors of clinton, bush, and obama,presidencies, to witness the Second American Revolution.

    I heard on the radio that this went to the SDNY FBI and they decided to not indict so it got bounced back to DC where it was. Sounds like another abuse of the SDNY boys.

    Probably consulted some whacky Chinese zodiac calendar for Craig’s optimal fengshui indictment scheduling.

    Our friend Brian Cates theory is Mueller and SDNY sat on the Greg Craig indictment for exactly the reason you think: SDNY declined prosecution because laws are for little people and Republicans.

    BUT … once Bob Barr took over DOJ and Mueller was shut down, the DC US Attorney pulled the case BACK from SDNY and filed the indictment Mueller’s team had sent up to SDNY to die.

    The long awaited Big Ugly might finally be getting under way. Hurrah!

    Is it possible the timing of this indictment is designed in part to determine if Mr Craig is open to discussing “other issues?”

    Poor Zero wont be able to claim non of his members were indicted / this in spite of fact that he corupted DOJ and everyone else prior . His DOJ attorneys went into federal court with lies and falsehoods “ knowing what they were doing was a crime and still did not get charged . Just think on this for a few minutes . This same Zero told illegalaliens to vote in elections that nothing would happen to them . He did this publicly . A real pos

    WHERE are ‘we’, on the Flynn case? Seems to me there was yet ANOTHER delay, as IIRC, Sullivan took something undrr advisement?
    Should be back in court, soon.

    Again, IIRC, Mueller team did NOT pass that one off, so will they continue to appear? Could Barr do anything to unwind THAT case, since defendant already pled guilty?

    Mueller was only tasked by Rod Rosenstein to investigate the Trump campaign for possible conspiracy with Russia to win the election and for obstruction (we think). The Greg Craig hand-off by Mueller can be rationalized that way. Craig wasn’t part of the Trump campaign.

      I’m not so sure, the indictments of Russians had nothing to do with the Trump campaign. Rosenstein himself said so.

        Yes, it indirectly dealt with the investigation of the Trump campaign, because Trump was accused of working WITH said Russians named in the indictment of the 12 Russian names in the DNC hack indictment. That is why Mueller had to indict them. It doesn’t matter what Rosenstein says TODAY, the indictment happened last year.

      Which will make for a very interesting line of inquiry, the immunity-palooza that corruptly granted immunity to all Obama and Clinton cronies.

      Pretty sure one or more of the following will be true: 1) Immunity deals granted by prosecutors for corrupt reasons are voidable; 2) The recipients have almost certainly violated the terms of the deal; and 3) as a condition of the immunity they will have to testify under oath as a government witness.

      That last one could provide some very interesting testimony for prosecutors who are not on the Obama/Clinton team.

    Ok one of the crooked BHO folks might sing a little and who is next. Who gets indicted for Obstruction as a result of not fully investigating Weiner laptop emails that were classified and on non secure laptop? How many of those “deleted/missing” classified or Clinton Foundation emails were said to be yoga and wedding emails but were on Weiner laptop? Huber know? Weiner sure has been quiet since his release.

    Wait Until the left and the fake news morons figure out SDNY reports to Barr. Ther’s a new sheriff in town and I’m very optimistic that justice will be served. The swamp is not used to dealing with our VSG. President Trump & Co. had to be put through the wringer first in a thorough and long process to red pill America, and we see now a majority of people think he was set up. Have to get the public caught up and aware before going after the enemy.

    Craig’s indictment was unsealed the day Julian Assange was apprehended, April 11, 2019.
