Mueller “Team” Does Not Want Special Counsel to Testify…

Can you imagine the questions:

Q: Mr. Mueller, did you go to Oval Office on May 16, 2017, because you wanted to apply for the job of FBI Director?
A: No.
Q: Mr. Mueller, was the mysterious cell phone you left behind in the oval office that day actually yours?
A: No.

And then, as Rod Rosenstein takes a hard and uncomfortable swallow, the Weissmann constructed house-of-cards starts to collapse….

(CNN) Special counsel Robert Mueller’s team has expressed reluctance to him testifying publicly in front of the House Judiciary Committee, according to sources familiar with the matter.

The special counsel’s team has conveyed the notion that Mueller does not want to appear political after staying behind the scenes for two years and not speaking as he conducted his investigation into President Donald Trump.

[…] Rep. Doug Collins, the top Republican on the Judiciary Committee, suggested at Tuesday’s hearing, a meeting where former White House counsel Don McGahn did not appear after being subpoenaed, that Democrats appear to have a lack of urgency in scheduling Mueller’s testimony.

[…] Justice officials are generally supportive of how the team is proceeding with negotiations. As Attorney General Bill Barr told The Wall Street Journal last week: “It’s Bob’s call whether he wants to testify.”

Special counsel spokesman Peter Carr and the Justice Department declined to comment on the current status of negotiations. (read more)

With a larger portion of the U.S. electorate now beginning to realize there never was a Trump Russia-Collusion-Conspiracy case to begin with; and with people now realizing almost all of Mueller investigative time was spent gathering evidence for an ‘obstruction case’; and with new revelations from Andrew McCabe, John Dowd and Mueller officials overlayed on the previous Strzok/Page texts; we can now clearly reconcile a previous issue:

..The May 16, 2017, Mueller meeting with President Trump in the Oval Office.

There has been a great deal of flawed interpretation of the May 16th meeting between President Trump, Deputy AG Rod Rosenstein and Robert Mueller. Some people even claimed that meeting showed Mueller and Rosenstein working to the benefit of President Trump. However, if you overlay all the information there is considerable evidence that interview was for the purpose of Mueller determining if he could achieve an ‘obstruction’ goal. Here’s how…

FBI Director James Comey was fired on Tuesday May 9th, 2017.

According to his own admissions (NBC and CBS), Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe immediately began a criminal ‘obstruction’ investigation the next day, Wednesday May 10th; and he immediately enlisted Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein.

These McCabe statements line up with with text message conversations between FBI lawyer Lisa Page and FBI agent Peter Strzok – (same dates 5/9 and 5/10):

(text message link)

It now appears that important redaction is “POTUS” or “TRUMP”. [Yes, this is evidence that some unknown DOJ officials redacted information from these texts that would have pointed directly to the intents of the DOJ and FBI. WARNING: Don’t get hung on it.]

The next day, Thursday May 11th, 2017, Andrew McCabe testifies to congress. With the Comey firing fresh in the headlines, Senator Marco Rubio asked McCabe: “has the dismissal of Mr. Comey in any way impeded, interrupted, stopped, or negatively impacted any of the work, any investigation, or any ongoing projects at the Federal Bureau of Investigation?”

McCabe responded: “So there has been no effort to impede our investigation to date. Quite simply put, sir, you cannot stop the men and women of the FBI from doing the right thing, protecting the American people and upholding the Constitution.”

However, again referencing his own admissions, on Friday May 12th McCabe met with DAG Rod Rosenstein to discuss the issues, referencing the criminal ‘obstruction’ case McCabe had opened just two days before. According to McCabe:

… “[Rosenstein] asked for my thoughts about whether we needed a special counsel to oversee the Russia case. I said I thought it would help the investigation’s credibility. Later that day, I went to see Rosenstein again. This is the gist of what I said: I feel strongly that the investigation would be best served by having a special counsel.” (link)

Recap: Tuesday-Comey fired; Wednesday-McCabe starts criminal ‘obstruction’ case; Thursday-McCabe testifies to congress “no effort to impede”; Friday-McCabe and Rosenstein discuss Special Counsel.

After the weekend, Monday May 15th, McCabe states he and Rosenstein conferred again about the Special Counsel approach. McCabe: “I brought the matter up with him again after the weekend.”

Now, overlaying the hindsight we did not know in 2018, to include the John Dowd interview and McCabe admissions, a very clear picture emerges.

Amid the controversial Rosenstein “wear a wire” conversation, supported by the testimony of Lisa Page, Andrew McCabe and FBI counsel James Baker, it now appears like ly the team agreed on a covert operation where Rosenstein takes Mueller into the oval office while the FBI listened-in through the device (cell phone) they gave to Mueller.

[Side-Note: I suspect the reason why McCabe included the out-of-place reference to the forgotten Mueller phone in his 2018 book was to fire a warning shot at DAG Rosenstein; telling him: don’t try to distance yourself, or pin blame, there are records etc.]

On Tuesday May 16th, 2017, Rod Rosenstein takes Robert Mueller to the White House to talk with the target of the ‘obstruction’ criminal investigation, under the ruse of bringing Mueller in for a meeting about becoming FBI Director.

Who else did Rosenstein bring to Trump for an FBI Director interview? No-one.  This meeting with Robert Mueller appears as advanced reconnaissance.

The next day, Wednesday May 17th, 2017, Rod Rosenstein and Andrew McCabe go to brief the congressional “Gang-of-Eight”: Paul Ryan, Nancy Pelosi, ¹Devin Nunes, Adam Schiff, Mitch McConnell, Chuck Schumer, Richard Burr and Mark Warner.

… […] “On the afternoon of May 17, Rosenstein and I sat at the end of a long conference table in a secure room in the basement of the Capitol. We were there to brief the so-called Gang of Eight—the majority and minority leaders of the House and Senate and the chairs and ranking members of the House and Senate Intelligence Committees. Rosenstein had, I knew, made a decision to appoint a special counsel in the Russia case.”

[…] “After reminding the committee of how the investigation began, I told them of additional steps we had taken. Then Rod took over and announced that he had appointed a special counsel to pursue the Russia investigation, and that the special counsel was Robert Mueller.” (link)

Immediately following this May 17, 2017, Go8 briefing, Deputy AG Rod Rosenstein notified the public of the special counsel appointment.

According to President Trump’s Attorney John Dowd, the White House was stunned by the decision. [Link] Coincidentally, AG Jeff Sessions was in the oval office for unrelated business when White House counsel Don McGahn came in and informed the group. Jeff Sessions immediately offered his resignation, and Sessions’ chief-of-staff Jody Hunt went back to the Main Justice office to ask Rosenstein what the hell was going on.

Now, with hindsight and full understanding of exactly what the purposes and intents were for Deputy AG Rod Rosenstein to bring Robert Mueller to the White House, revisit this video from June 2017:

.

The DOJ (Rosenstein) and FBI (McCabe) activity in coordination with the Robert Mueller team was always about the obstruction case from day one; heck, from even before Robert Mueller was appointed.

The totality of all primary effort has always been to protect the ruse of the Russia investigation by throwing out nonsense Russian indictments and keeping Manafort, Flynn and Papadopoulos (the original spygate targets) under control…. while the focus was on building the obstruction case against President Trump.

It could not be any more clear.

[Link]

The objective remains all about controlling the “narrative”.

This investigative ‘small group’ are the people inside Main Justice (DOJ) and FBI headquarters who redacted the Lisa Page and Peter Strzok text messages; removed messages and communication antithetical to their goals; kept key documents and information away from congress; stalled any effort to expose the unlawful aspects of “SpyGate’ and the fraudulent foundation behind the Carter Page FISA application; and undermined any adverse discoveries in the leak investigations (James Wolfe) writ large.

There’s a reason why the discussions about thousands of Andrew McCabe text messages has been dropped.

There’s a reason why Chairman Lindsey Graham doesn’t want Robert Mueller to appear before the Senate Judiciary Committee.

There’s a reason why Jerry Nadler and the House Judiciary committee would rather focus on accusations against AG Bill Barr as opposed to questioning Robert Mueller.

This corrupt DOJ and FBI investigative small group didn’t change when Mueller arrived, in May 2017, they just retooled the focus of their earlier effort based on new leadership and new objectives. Those who created the Trump-Russia collusion/conspiracy case of 2016, evolved into creating the Trump obstructing justice case of 2017, 2018 and 2019.

Everything Mueller and Rosenstein were doing in late 2017 and throughout 2018 was intended to drag-out the Russia conspiracy narrative as long as possible, even though there was no actual Trump-Russia investigation taking place.

It was always the “obstruction” investigation that could lead to the desired result by Mueller’s team of taking down President Trump through evidence that would help Pelosi and Nadler achieve impeachment . The “obstruction case” was the entirety of the case they were trying to make from May 2017 through to March 2019; and continues today.

[¹] Now we know why House Speaker Paul Ryan moved to sideline Devin Nunes under the cloud of an ethics investigation.

    Bingo!!! This is why Weissman quit and is no longer a doj employee. He is plan B. Nadler will put in new rules designed to mute the Republicans and prevent specific lines of inquiry from going after Weissman. Now here is where it gets interesting. If Rosey and Mueller were in a scheme to bury Trump—
    1 why did they shut down the investigation? They could have gone on for years.
    2 why didn’t Weissman specifically bring a strong recommendation for obstruction and impeachment?
    You can’t tell me Barr stopped it all by himself. No way? My theory is that Barr Rosey and Mueller changed Weissman conclusion and watered them down. Rosey and Mueller blocked both McCabe and Weissman. But they had to let it play out. Remember the media was all on Mueller’s side. If he or Rosey tipped their hands that they weren’t on team Weissman, they would have been savaged like Bill Barr. The people in the FBI CIA and doj are dangerous and ruthless. I believe Rosey and Mueller had to wear their 🐼 panda masks. They had an uphill battle to take on those powers and still “land the plane”. They played Weissman and then changed his conclusion. Which is why the media was so shocked by the report. It was because Weissman briefed them before his conclusions were changed. The Mueller letter and phone call was more Kabuki theater by Barr and Mueller. Barr laughed at the letter and claimed it was written by staff. The Dems, media, and Weissman now understand that they got stung by Rosey and Mueller. Or maybe Mueller and rosenstein are corrupt. But hmmmm

      I do think that it was Barr who shut down the Mueller investigation. You just have to go back to June of last year and look at the memo that Barr wrote for Trump’s attorneys on Obstruction.

      It appears that in spring of 2018, Mueller’s prosecutors and Trump’s attorneys were in an impasse. Under normal Obstruction statute interpretations, the prosecutors needed to prove Mens Rea, and the only way to do that was to catch Trump in a perjury trap in a live interview. Knowing and fearing that, Trump’s lawyers kept shoveling mountains of documents at the Mueller people, asserting that Trump was too busy Making America Great Again as President, and he would only be available if they could show that they had no other way of gathering the evidence they needed, and, BTW, here are some more documents. Weissman, et al, didn’t want more documents, or more low level interviews. No, what they desperately wanted was their perjury trap.

      Then, they got creative and came up with an extremely aggressive interpretation of one clause in one of the Obstruction statutes that essentially would have swallowed all other Obstruction statutes. One of its corollaries is that they could prosecute as Obstruction any attempt by anyone, including the President to shut down any investigation, including, notably, their own.

      I don’t know how Barr got involved, but he did, in early June, and wrote a legal memo to Rosenstein eviscerating the prosecutors’ theory. It was delivered directly by Trump’s Attis to the DAG, and not through Mueller, which was rare. And Rosenstein, ever the careful lawyer, apparently ran it by OLC, which ultimately sided with Barr.

      By late summer, Barr was their pick to replace Sessions as AG, but the Kavenaugh hearings took priority, because if the Republicans lost the Senate in Nov, the Dems would do to the Republicans had done them with Garland. I expect that if they had lost, Barr would have been confirmed in the lame duck session. No need.

      My guess is that a discussion with Mueller went kinda this way:
      B: What do you have left to do with the Russia collusion investigation?
      M: Nothing. Been wrapped up for a year or so
      B: Why is the investigation still ongoing?
      M: Obstruction.
      B: Rod, what did OLC say about my memo last summer on Obstruction?
      R: It has been adopted as Dept policy.
      B: Bob, with the Obstruction interpretation settled, what else do you need to do before shutting down?
      M: Nothing (knowing that with Barr’s interpretation now Dept policy, they weren’t going to get their POTUS interview or perjury trap).
      B: Make it happen.

      To see some of this, read the Barr memo from June 2018 in connection with the Obstruction part of the Mueller report. The prosecutors couldn’t, by then, show Obstruction utilizing the Barr initiated, OLC approved, statutory construction. That, no doubt, was the standard used by Barr and Rosenstein to find no Obstruction. But they didn’t want to walk away with Trump unscathed, so invented a third alternative of chronicling the dirt, then throwing the decision to Barr and Rosenstein. They knew that Obstruction would be rejected. They just needed an excuse to make their dirt public.

      First, I want to thank @Sundance for putting out all the info in a nice timeline.
      Second, I have similar but slightly different suspicions:
      1) McCabe blackmailed (or whatever you want to call it) Rosey into appointing a SC by telling him that if he didn’t do so that McCabe and Weissman would open an obstruction of justice against him.
      2) Not sure about the Rosey-Mueller-Trump meeting. This could be a setup as Sundance said. But it could be with Rosey as a reluctant partner. Unclear about Mueller.
      3) After working with Mueller for a long time and earning his trust, when Barr comes on board and corners Rosey and tells Rosey to do his job and not worry about obstruction, Rosey brings Mueller into the picture as to how McCabe and Weissman operated. By now, Mueller has seen there was no Trump Russia collusion.
      4) Now this is where your last point makes sense: Mueller and Rosey let Weissman write his report and then Mueller changes the conclusion on obstruction. Now that is Mueller’s conclusion – not Rosey’s, not Barr’s.
      5) Which is the “team” (traitors really) is leaking something about Mueller not wanting to be political. They know Mueller will testify that it is his conclusion.

      I don’t like or trust Mueller – but I do think the above is a likely scenario of what occurred. It also explains why Rosey left with good terms with Barr and Trump. Perhaps there is a secret document where Barr has given Rosey transactional immunity.

        Your theory makes the most sense that I have heard so far because I have always been confused about Rosenstein. He was on Trump’s side when he wrote the letter to fire Comey; He was on Mueller’s team when he brought him in to interview for the FBI position and possibly wear a wire to set up Trump; he was on Mueller’s team when he signed the FISA warrants; he was on Barr’s team when the two of them decided there was no obstruction; and, Barr allowed him to walk out the door with his head held high.

    Mueller is in serious legal jeopardy for perjury if he testifies period. His report is like 3rd world propaganda full of what can only be described as lying. It repeatedly paints FBI informants sent to entrap Team Trump as ‘Russian affiliated’ approaches by the Kremlin. If Mueller tries to talk his way around these attempted setups he’ll perjure himself in his own tangled web of lies & wouldn’t that be poetic justice for a creepy authoritarian who loves nothing better than charging innocent men with ‘lying to him’ over innocent mistakes.

    Among other things, 18 U.S.C. § 1001 makes it a crime for anyone, in any matter within the jurisdiction of the executive branch of the United States, to knowingly and willfully falsify, conceal or cover up by any trick, scheme or device a material fact or to make any materially false, fictitious, or fraudulent statement or representation.

    The process by a president of interviewing candidates for and filling the position of Director of the FBI would appear to be a matter within the jurisdiction of the executive branch.

    On May 16, 2017, Robert Mueller III was merely a private citizen. He was not a federal law enforcement officer conducting an authorized investigation. If Mueller interviewed with the president as a candidate for director and made materially false statements to President Trump, Mueller could be criminally culpable. Did Mueller falsely claim to be sincerely interviewing for the FBI director position when in reality he was instead part of a scheme to frame the president and hamstring him politically?

    There is also the crime of “Conspiracy to Defraud the United States,” much loved by the Special Counsel team in charging some of their targets. They have interpreted this to mean not a real scheme of defrauding the government of money or property but merely anything that works to frustrate the lawful functioning of federal agencies.

    If Mueller lied to President Trump in the process of the president attempting to carry out his proper governmental function of filling positions such as the FBI Director, perhaps Mr. Mueller has committed the crime of conspiracy to defraud the United States (18 U.S. Code § 371), just as Team Mueller has charged against others.

    Mueller seems to take great pains in the Mueller Report to deny he was present in the White House to interview as a candidate for the FBI Director position. Perhaps he is worried about his own criminal liability. He resorts to Bannon as a witness for the claim that Mueller was merely there to “speak to the President to offer a perspective on the institution of the FBI” and that “he did not come in looking for the job.” Volume II, p. 81. Hmmmmmm. [insert skeptical cat pic]

    The tentacles of this coup have now been proven to invole 2 branches of our government. As more information comes out I believe we will see that the Sedition also infected the Judicial Branch also. I honestly believe all three branches of our government were actively involed, along with foreign governments in a seditious conspiracy to overthrow the will of electorate and to frame and then impeach the President of the United States Donald J Trump.

    Therefore I can’t in all conscious agree to the civilian court handling these Sedition and Traitorous plotters. We have entered the realemn of military tribunals. The first one that needs to have his military ass scorched is one Bob Mueller. Call him back to active duty and start interrogation proceedings immediately. Mueller’s knowledge of this treason will bring this cabal crashing down.

    This is what it will take. Everyone needs to buckle up and be ready to fight for this country. Just a special operations soldiers humble opinion. I seen a lot of shit hole countries, and people we are about to the point of being one also. The communist and global sell outs in our government have brought us to the brink. I hope everyone is really waking up to this. I posted almost a year ago that the coup had already happened and now evidence is starting to service. They have just used our greatest President of all Times to try and cover it up so they could take over in the final push by nulling the election and using the UN Forces to crush any uprising.

        How would military tribunals, so long as civilian courts,are functioning, be Constitutional? They wouldn’t!

        EVERYTHING PDJT has done, so far, has been to err on the,side of staying very firmly INSIDE the bounds of the Constitution.

        Some have even advocated the “Yeah, and how many divisions do the,courts have under their command?” approach.
        Such as defying the courts, and enforcing the so-called “muslim ban”, when it was OBVIOUS he,would be upheld by SCOTUS.
        He DIDN’T.
        Hence, this is a false argument, a fantasy that will not happen.

      I’m guessing the preliminary statement might go something like this. (Just a guess).

      PRELIMINARY STATEMENT

      When in the Course of human events, it becomes optional for an American to claim all sovereign title formerly held by his Government, and deliver said unclaimed freight to the Judge Advocates General of the military originally charged with its protection, a decent respect for the covenant with our Creator—being the condition precedent for United States sovereignty—requires that he should declare the causes leading to the claim and constrains him to conclude that man has not evolved an inch from the slime that spawned him.

      These truths were once self-evident; back when students were taught civics rather than social studies; before they were indoctrinated with disgust for traditional safeguards against totalitarianism; — disgust for Family, Creator and our Social Compact. While all men are created equal, they are individually endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, That among these are Life, Liberty, and that which makes the Pursuit of Happiness possible—the right of self-ownership with all its attendant duties of virtue. — That to secure these rights, mankind leaves the state of nature by ceding certain alienable rights conferring specifically enumerated powers to establish government by consent through a social compact. That the Declaration of Independence is our social compact; it is “a legal instrument, a juristic act of ultimate solemnity, effecting the most fundamental constitutional change, a change in the very source and foundation of law. … It is our one legal document on which all else rests.” It forms a Real Covenant against Tyranny as the condition precedent for the existence and exercise of sovereign power. — That whenever those entrusted with the powers of Government become destructive of these ends they effectuate an abandonment of all legitimate claim to sovereign title under the compact, leaving it as res derelictae until justice is restored through the investigation and punishment of those responsible for the treason. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be [reset] for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by [restoring] the forms to which they [were] accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is not to be wondered, that they should then rouze themselves, and endeavour to put the rule into such hands which may secure to them the ends for which government was at first erected. Such has been the patient sufferance of loyal Americans; and such is now the necessity which constrains the undersigned to challenge the honor of the United States Navy, Army, Air Force and Coast Guard Judge Advocates General in keeping their oath to defend this nation from its first and foremost enemy—Tyranny. The history of the previous presidential administration, and the seditious bureaucrats cleaving to it and its party in lieu of the Constitution, is not only a history of repeated injuries and usurpations but a treasonable design having in direct object the exercise of Tyrannical power over the people of the United States. To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid world.

      “The use of military tribunals in cases of civilians was often controversial, as tribunals represented a form of justice alien to the common law, which governs criminal justice in the United States, and provides for trial by jury, the presumption of innocence, forbids secret evidence, and provides for public proceedings. Critics of the Civil War military tribunals charged that they had become a political weapon, for which the accused had no legal recourse to the regularly constituted courts, and no recourse whatsoever except through an appeal to the President. The U.S. Supreme Court agreed, and unanimously ruled that military tribunals used to try civilians in any jurisdiction where the civil courts were functioning were unconstitutional, with its decision in Ex parte Milligan (1866).”

      If you think about it, what the FBI/DOJ/CIA/MI6/etc. did, and tried to do, to DJT and associates, and what Mueller furthered, and what Pelosi/Nadler/Sciff/etc. are still trying to do, and parts of the the FBI are still trying to do- no presumption of innocence, secret evidence, and a political weapon – is very similar to a military tribunal – pretty much the same show just under a different tent.

      And a secret Star Chamber FISC court that knows it has been defrauded, knows that 85% of government spy-taps are illegal, but did not withdraw the fraudulently-procured spy warrants as improvidently granted, and did not disbar and discipline the oath-signers of the fraudulent filing.

      The FISC Court has a special duty of inquiry to read and question before granting spy-warrants. And a special duty as the bulwark protecting the 4th amendment rights of the defendants who are not represented, against DOJ/FBI fraud, withholding, entrapment and misrepresentation. The FISC Court was presented with a “MOTION TO SPY ON A PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE”, then “MOTIONS TO CONTINUE TO SPY ON THE PRESIDENT”. The FISC Court could not have read these pleadings honestly to carry out their constitutional responsibilities, because they didn’t ask any questions despite the political sensitivity and constitutional import of this spying. Had they read the motions, they would have had lots of questions:

      “How did you verify the pee pee dossier? Who paid for it? Was any part of your motions derived from the 85% illegal spying the FISC court knows about, and the FBI has engaged in since before 2002? Why is Carter Page a russian spy, when he works for the FBI and testifies against russian crime? Was there any entrapment activity against any of the people the FBI wants to spy on?” Have all the records and recordings been reported to the court and attached, including all exculpatory material and material detrimental to the reliability of your sworn evidence (a routine question the FISC Judge should ask for all spy-warrant requests…)”

      The FISC Court apparently had no substantial questions; there is apparently no court record of questions by the Judges at hearings for such a clearly important matter.

      The compliability and lack of concern by the FISC Court about fraud on the Court, being misled, withholding exculpatory evidence, is my major concern. There is something wrong, very wrong, with this secret court. Had the FISC carried out its duty, and not been a repeated-rubber-stamp, the spy-warrants would never have been issued.

      The FISC Court needs to be impeached for failing in its duty not to be a rubber-stamp for DOJ/FBI political spying overreach, for failing to withdraw fraudulently obtained spy warrants, and for failure to protect itself and the large number of unrepresented political defendants (here everyone Carter Page knows, and everyone those people know (including an entire major US presidential political candidate campaign), from fraud by disciplining those who misled and withheld information from the court.

      And it would be recorded AND ‘witnessed’ by Rosie.
      And, leave the recorder behind, to record what PDJT said to his aides, after Mueller and Rosie left.
      IF he had said ANYTHING remotely like that, it would have been OVER, right there.
      THAT would have given Republicons cover, to vote for Impeachment, due to Obstruction.

        With the Mueller novella behind us, there’s no more ongoing investigation to obstruct. I fully expect these goons to shift their focus to a brand-new investigation, like tax returns, an old Russian business deal or harassing his children.

        Anything to poke the bear.

        Then the Enemedia can accuse POTUS of obstruction or retaliation in some other contrived “case.” This witch hunt will go on and on.

        The RepubliCONS are itching to find something -anything- to latch onto that will justify a UNiPARTY impeachment proceeding.

    This is all a lot like the 1979 movie “When a Stranger Calls” where it turns out the deranged stalker is calling from inside the house, not from some miles away. Similarly, we now know, and have known for quite some time, that the enemy of the Republic action to subvert, and then overthrow, America’s 2016 election came from “inside the house” , that is the FBI/DOJ/CIA, and not thousands of miles away from Russia.

    Maybe, instead of having our missiles aimed at Russia, we should have them aimed at the bigger enemy, the FBI, DOJ and CIA, Headquarters as compared to them Russia is a dear friend..

  20. SD writes, “The DOJ (Rosenstein) and FBI (McCabe) activity in coordination with the Robert Mueller team was always about the obstruction case from day one; heck, from even before Robert Mueller was appointed.”

    SD’s analysis underlines the importance of PDJT’s tweets. PDJT was in a potential damned if you do, damned if you don’t situation and so had a thread a needle. On the one hand, if PDJT had taken any actions to expose the cabal, the media-Uniparty-Deep State complex would have screamed obstruction! blah, blah, blah. On the other hand, if he kept completely silent, a la the globalist-corporatist GW Bush, the media-Uniparty-Deep State com0lex would have screamed that Trump was obviously guilty and bunkered down. “What innocent man would be accused of all these heinous things and yet never respond in righteous anger?”

    Tweeting enabled PDJT to constantly declare that terrible corruption and a coup was afoot without doing anything that could even remotely be construed as obstruction.

    And so a related question . . . When all the cucks used to b—- and moan about PDJT tweeting all the time . . . To what extent was that genuine cuckery – cucks getting the vapors while reading Trump’s gauche and “mean” tweets from the decks of their cruise ships – versus the cucks knowing that the tweeting was undermining their beloved coup?

    Would not rule out the redaction in the Page/Strzok emails being Flynn and not POTUS or Trump.

    Recall that Flynn had already been interviewed and accused of lying. In this period Strzok was also expressing his opinion there was no big there there regarding Trump.

    Locking him in, in a formal chargeable way soon seems the redacted name would more likely be Flynn.

    Mueller/Weismann probably said, slow down Pete. Charging Flynn with lying won’t get us anywhere further. We’ll expand the terms of the investigation and go after his family as well. Then watch him compose and sing. Just sit back and learn how the big boys do it.

      Grrr…. hard to keep all these timelines straight… So we have:

      https://www.foxnews.com/politics/strzok-page-texts-calling-to-open-case-in-chargeable-way-under-fresh-scrutiny

      “Two hours after Comey’s termination became public on May 9, 2017, Strzok, a now-former FBI agent, texted Page, his then-colleague and lover: ‘We need to open the case we’ve been waiting on now while Andy is acting.'”

      We now know they were hot to open the Obstruction Investigation that Andy (He of “Andy’s Office” fame) was pushing before and during that time period (in the works for a couple of months). So that lines up.

      Then we have the response from Page:

      “We need to lock in (redacted). In a formal chargeable way. Soon.”

      So yeah… that must be Flynn. Locking in Flynn would either have something to do with a.) “flipping” Flynn to further support the mechanism of the Obstruction Investigation, or b.) simply heighten the impact of Trump’s alleged “obstruction” on an active investigation that directly led to charges. Probably “b”… that would be, like, Major Obstruction ‘n stuff. Or there could be “c”, “d”, and “e”, but I’m not sure what those would be at the moment.

    Although proving the entire investigation was not based on a an actual actionable predicate and declassifying things like the EC (Electronic Communication) and the FISA warrant applications are the most important pieces to the puzzle to show how nefarious the entire operation was.. I can’t help but think that actually declassifying these ridiculous texts between the nincompoops Strozk and Page will actually sway the general masses the most. The masses have a limited attention span, and if that text actually says “We need to lock in [TRUMP]. In a formal chargeable way.” I’m convinced that will change a lot of minds. It’s just so blunt and in your face- it will be difficult to talk that one away. Then they (the masses) would probably bother to hear a couple of minutes about how the FISA applications prove it started so much earlier, etc…

    If the high level guilty culprits in the Worst Political Scandal in the History of the USA are eventually proven to be corrupt and convicted participants in an illegal and despicable plot to depose an elected President, it will be caused in large part to their arrogance and hubris and secondarily to their willingness to engage in illegal activities.

    The alleged “deplorable, smelly Wal Mart loser” voters rose up and voted to Drain the Swamp and the drain valve is opening wider every day. The arrogant, conceited snobs in the WH, Capitol Hill and at the top of the major agencies were unable to envision this possibility in 2016. I occasionally watch snippets of 2016 election day and the campaign on You Tube and it’s infuriating to envision now what nefarious deeds were happening behind the scenes in these Top agencies at the same time the media was denouncing candidate and then President-elect Trump’s character and predicting dire consequences.

    When supercilious Obama and Michelle faked smiles and met Trump and Melania at the Inauguration and at the WH, Obama must have known what was going on behind the scenes and was inwardly smirking at what he expected would happen to Trump’s brief Presidency. Outrageous!
