Jessie Liu Resigns Treasury Dept. Following Nomination Withdrawal…

Not surprisingly, several media outlets are reporting Jessie Liu resigned from the Treasury Department effective Wednesday evening.  Interestingly, in the discussions of the issues around Liu all MSM are ignoring her involvement in the James Wolfe case/cover-up.

Ms. Liu moved from being U.S. Attorney in DC into the Treasury Department in a quest to become the Undersecretary for Terrorism and Financial Crimes within the agency.  However, that treasury position required senate confirmation and President Trump withdrew her nomination.

(Via NBC) […] The former U.S. attorney whose office oversaw the Roger Stone prosecution resigned from the Trump administration Wednesday, two days after President Donald Trump abruptly withdrew her nomination for a top job at the Treasury Department.

Jessie Liu had headed the U.S. attorney’s office in Washington, D.C., which oversaw several cases that originated with former special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 election, including prosecutions of longtime Trump associate Stone and former national security adviser Michael Flynn.  (read more)

While she was U.S. Attorney in DC Ms. Liu was involved in several controversial cases including:


  • The manipulated DC legal case surrounding the Awan brothers; and how they escaped full accountability, likely due to need to protect politicians. (House of Representatives) The sweetheart plea deal.
  • The manipulated DC legal case surrounding SSCI Security Director James Wolfe; and how he was allowed to plea only to lying to investigators when the evidence was clear from the outset how he leaked classified information to his journalist concubine. Again, likely due to the need to protect politicians. (SSCI, Senate) The sweetheart plea deal.
  • The manipulated DC legal case surrounding Obama lawyer Greg Craig; and how he escaped accountability for FARA violations by running out the statute of limitations and burying Mueller’s evidence for 18 months. Again, likely due to the need to protect politicians (Obama White House). Sweetheart double standards.
  • The manipulated DC legal case, a non-filing, surrounding former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe for lying to INSD investigators about his media leaks. Again, likely due to the need to protect the administrative state. Criminal referral (April 19, 2018); grand jury (Approx. July 2018).

          perhaps. but getting her out of the government is an important first step. one can hope that cases such as flynn, the awan brothers, and james wolfe will get another chance for close inspection and liu’s roles therein to be grist for the mill of justice that, again perhaps in this case, can grind slowly but exceedingly fine.

            What’s funny is that the only reason we know Wolfe was the one leaking is because an altered datestamp was put into his copy of the FISA application. So that when it was leaked to his reporter girlfriend we knew he was the leaker.

            IMHO we my one day be thanking Silent Jeff Sessions.

    Structural Swamp environmental changes are a way to describe and predict what is clearly the Post Ukrainian Impeachment Hoax phase.

    Most important is the absence of a constant functioning legal threat on POTUS. Trump is no longer inhibited by the accusation that he is attempting to obstruct or employ presidential influence to alter a current investigation or case. Tweets and policy decisions have become a blunt objects in regard the prevailing corruption at DoJ, NSA and the courts.

    AND Sundance, with both in the weeds and satellite views of all things the Swamp, has begun to be followed by MSM reporters, commentators. Information that brings clarity to what actually happened in the past 4 years that reaches prime time is and will prove to be explosive.

    The ability to be correct in a pivotal manner will be the reward to the MSM media personalities that begin to employ Sundance content. Both media personality and network stand to be rewarded for presenting accurate news by better ratings.

    AS Trump’s tweets can now align with the MSM presented Sundance information a greater synergy is possible. I will look forward to the near future time when the likes of Wray can be exposed to the public and adequate popular support would even provide the leverage for Mr. McConnell to have appointed an FBI Director that is not part and parcel to the Swamp.

      it isn’t trivial to notice that TRUTH AND FACTS still command the attention of the corrupt media. It’s a nuisance to as much as it is a direct threat.

      sort of the same reason why assange was one day a hero and the next, a zero.

      the media realized they can not ever tolerate direct falsifiable accurate fact based unsalted BS free JOURNALISM to invade their space. It’s an existential threat to the bias (and financially driven) narratives they have been manufacturing now for years…decades.

      so..let me just say this….the Left corrupt media will eventually start taking aim here at CTH and sundance. Be prepared for it. This is a serious concern all of us here have to be prepared to defend against and to protect what has been created here.

      here are a few suggestions:

      notice new “accounts”..what are they writing?

      is the strawman arguments arranged to divide and create dissent?

      are the links and sources bona fide and based on fact based and evidence that can be corroborated

      political tone


      subtle or not so subtle insults to conservative officials, members of this administration

      service disruptions.

      ad hominem attacks

      argument fallacies

      wild off the reservation conspiracy theories

      planting links that lead to known malware sites

      impugning sundance and other

      bringing up old unsubstantiated allegations of moral, ethical and criminal misconduct

      re-hashing irrelevant prior construction arguments .

      it IS going to happen..and it will likely happen soon.

      there are a few things I want to suggest…

      1. it’s never a good idea to engage radicals that enter this space…it’s best to treat them with simple rebukes and let them know they will not be capable of spamming this site with nonsense

      2. if I’ve learned anything over the last few years at left leaning radical media blog spaces…calling someone a russian asset is a non-starter….in almost every case it just becomes an opening to start some tangential battles that the space for the oxygen rich, fair debate on relevant and direct matters related to the subject matter.

      3. moderators have to be active and fair. Overloading the blog space with excessive censoring can create more tension than the actual heated discussion..this can turn alot of people off. temporary suspension are much better than permanent bans as a matter of course for moderation..jhmo

      4. I’ll admit my own bigotry …I know this…and I try to curtail this as not everyone here or anywhere else has a tolerance for it. I can appreciate the need to have some decorum and not inject my own hard core views on racial matters. I have made as much effort as possible not to taint this blog with those views. I would hope that other commenters and the moderator can accept we all come into this blog with some very strong held views. Whether they are shared widely or supported should not be a reason to ban anyone…I don’t know where the line is, but I have no intention to test that. I would hope that doesn’t become an issue. The point here, I can predict with 100 percent we are going to see some effort to vilify commentators here with race prepared for that.

      they will will happen. this site is a threat to the narrative…and it’s becoming very obvious to many in the corruptor society that sites like this need to be targeted.

        Barr is tough to quite figure out as to his moves and motives. Some things seem to be moving in the right direction, yet as with all these crooks still walking around free, and giving passes to McCabe and Comey on issues they had them on rock-solid certainly should give pause.
        It feels like a slow walk or shell game being played here with him.
        At what point does any of these criminals end up arrested and indicted for their crimes against the US?
        Is it the House preventing him from acting? That seems like weak sauce. There is far too much evidence piling up against these thugs to think our own government wouldn’t have at the least the information we have seen.

            another way to look at this is that it really doesn’t matter who the AG is in the particular case…rather that these 4 corruptors did in fact mislead the AG and attempt to pull off another round of acid based justice against a person aligned with POTUS.

            we should consider AG on his own merits…not based on his reaction and involvement in this issue. Now, on the other hand, had AG just allowed it to happen…we could make a pretty good evaluation about his sense of leadership to accomplish fair justice.

            I am anxious to see more justice served..It just plods along.

            the information I see here at CTH is most certainly available to these officials and find that infuriating a more speedy reaction isn’t happening.

            but then again, I do not understand the scale, the volume and the level of legal and political entanglements that this AG has to not just overcome to achieve it..but to do so, in order to be complete and thorough to the entire task. Drip drip just might be necessary….

            I think of it this way..if the appearance that justice happens ALL AT ONCE, this would create a huge risk as the left corruptors would go after it as “evidence” this is purely some heavy handed impure action directed by trump allies. I am sure there is some element of that risk that AG Barr is navigating. I would hope his strategies allows to overcome each and every part of this “test” with the fortitude and diligence to see it through all the way to complete justice. I am patient for that. But I am also aware of how these matters have been handled in the past and by Barr in past administrations. So, I am conflicted on how much I trust he will run the board.

    Sure is great to see her leave government but it is certainly not anything like facing consequences for what she played a role in. The Awan Brothers case should be looked at again ,if they can show she was compromised then all of these cases need to be looked at again without the political lens that twisted things. No One Is Above the LAW, so if these case expose DC politicians so be it !!!!!!
    If you went into any crowed city and asked who the Awan Brothers were you probably can’t find a single person who knows who they are and what they were up to. I believe they were in there working for our enemies and they were ripping us off big time at the same time. they had dirt on these people in Congress and they used it to get away with a lot of crimes.

    Just not getting why Barr thought she was worth promoting to a critical role in treasury and to the DOJ #3 post before that. She smells swampy and that deal with Wolfe was just too much for anyone with a brain to swallow. Maybe Barr needs to get out more.

    I het Barr has a tough job and all that, you cant run at Congress head on, but these people illegally spied, conspired to prevent election of Trump, then tried to take him out. And now we hear Durham is “still searching” and McCarthy thinks “perhaps not jail, but certainly transparency” and Barr is whining about tweets? Give me a freaking break. This is BS.

    We Trump supporters DEMAND justice. This has gone on too long and we want to see some accountability. My patience, and I imagine Trump’s too, is at an end. Arrest someone for crying out loud. It’s not there wasn’t lying left and right. Demand to move the trial if the DC jury pool is tainted. But do damn something.

    This crap has gone on too long and more time is making the anger grow, not subside. If a couple million people want to join me Im ready to walk to DC. Its time to do something. I do not accept our country should work like this.

      If none of these seditionists who worked to effect a coup against President Trump end up facing zero consequences for their actions, what would prevent them from keeping on doing these things?
      Even clearing them out of the positions of power, while it is good, just isn’t enough. They need to face justice and some of the top people need to be in serious jeopardy of freedom for the rest of their lives, even though these acts would normally call for the death penalty.
      Comey, Brennan, Mueller, Mueller’s democrat cabal of lawyers, Rosenstein, just to begin with, all of which should be facing bankruptcy from legal fees.
      I get it there is danger from the left crying it’s revenge, but these are real crimes committed by Obama’s handpicked agents to undermine his successor.
      Pelosi and company kept claiming no one is above the law, yet every one of these scum certainly seem to be above the law. If a Republican had done any of these things, they would be indicted.
      I truly think we are moving closer to full out civil war if these traitors to our country are not brought to justice.

      This woman made herself radioactive within DC and DoJ. To free up that office (U.S. attorney for D.C.) Barr and Trump did a rope-a-dope number on her. They offered to kick her upstairs to the Treasury position that would bring lucrative post-government service employment offers.

      She took the bait – then, Trump pulled it back from her with a “Not so fast, Jessie.”

      Look at the end result. Lawyer with a history of questionable enforcement has tendered resignation.

      If she wasn’t nominated, she would have remained in her old protected position. She’d have to be fired for cause, which wasn’t going to happen. She was too protected in her entrenched position.

      So Barr can nominate her into a untenable position, while flagging her history of defending Democrats. No way she’d move forward. And what’s this? Her old position is back filled? It’s one of the few ways to get rid of a government employee legitimately.

      Well, you sense a scent–you’re just smelling the wrong odor!

      The “Terrorist Finance” position in Treasury appears to be reserved for agents of a foreign power–but it’s not China.

      “The current Under Secretary is Sigal Mandelker, appointed by President Donald Trump, and confirmed to the position by the Senate on June 21, 2017.”

      Mandelker is tightly tied to Israel–“the Jewish daughter of Holocaust survivors,” born in Israel, probably an Israeli citizen. Watch where she goes next.

      The neocon den of vipers, the Foundation for the Defense of Democracies (ha!) is filled with former Terrorist Finance employees. They are feverishly whipping up reasons to start WW3 in Iran.

      So, where does Liu fit in that scenario?

      Follow the spouse:
      “Jessie Kong Liu, the daughter of Dr. and Mrs. Wu-Schyong Liu of King of Prussia, Pa., is to be married this afternoon to Michael Bernard Abramowicz, a son of Dr. Helen Abramowicz and Dr. Mark Abramowicz of Larchmont, N.Y. Rabbi Emily Korzenik is to officiate…”

      And follow her actions: in 2019, in the height of the swirling coup, Liu, responsible for federal law enforcement in DC, ignored the multiple criminal conspiracies targeting the president. What was she focused on? How about seizing an Iranian oil tanker in Gibraltar? Perfect fit with the goals of her foreign sponsor–NOT China!

      “…the United States issued a warrant for the seizure of an Iranian tanker that British Royal Marines had seized last month in Gibraltar, citing evidence that it was transporting oil to Syria in violation of US sanctions.
      “The oil tanker Grace 1, the more than two million barrels of oil it carries, and $995,000 are subject to forfeiture based on a complaint by the US government, US Attorney for the District of Columbia Jessie Liu said in a news release on Friday.”

      Influence operation by China? No…think again!

      I think Barr is acutely aware of the need to perform “good optics”…and his messaging is actually appropriate in my own view.

      it is satisfactory to me that DOJ AG operate with the independence required and supported by the constitution. I am not suggesting the President back off from making his twitter rhetoric. It IS effective. It’s doesn’t have to be politically correct to gain traction.

      I think Trump does this to impart the difference between how he sees the world as it should be governed….versus how the swamp left would prefer to dominate every single factor or significance even into justice.

      Barr, did well today. This gives him so space and a solid argument that he acts faithful to his oath. I find that pleasantly surprising as this does depart from his former messaging or lack thereof in prior administrations. I think he also realizes the big picture here is completely different and that he must fight against the no stop efforts of the corruptors who are creating likely a morale issue at the DOJ AND giving ammunition and false enthusiasm to those conflicted souls that probably still exist in the DOJ/FBI who may read this and catch his drift…Barr is not a daisy and isn’t going to be persuaded by heavy partisan influences.

      for that IS EXACTLY what got this wilddire started in the first place.

      leadership is necessary.

      You might think that, by looking at the surface. But you might have thought Mueller, Comey, McCabe, and others were honest patriots, just by looking at the surface.

      Need to get a little deeper. Liu was teed up for this position by the war-mongering foreign influence operation, the Foundation for the Defense of Democracies–which employs a huge chunk of former Treasury “Terrorist Finance” employees in its operation to start a war with Iran.

      Here’s what the FDD executive director said when the Israeli-citizen, Mandelker, announced her resignation from that post:

      “Sigal Mandelker brought extraordinary expertise, experience, energy and commitment to the role and deserves the gratitude of all Americans,” Mark Dubowitz, CEO of the Foundation for Defense of Democracies, told Jewish Insider. “I anticipate that her replacement will be equally talented and committed, and that there will be no change in the administration’s commitment to maximum economic and financial pressure against the Islamic Republic of Iran.”

      In other words, a full-throated endorsement of the soon-to-come appointment of fellow-influence operator, Liu.

      So, no, Xi does not care. Netanyahu does, though.

    Don’t know squat about Jesse Liue’s personal life, but if Peter Schweitzer writes another book similar to “Profiles In Corruption,” he’d have to devote half his book to Jesse. I won’t be shocked if somehow this story mutates in the MSM that she resigned to run for President.
    Amazing how when MONEY or PERSONAL INTERESTS are involved. they develop early onset Altzheimer’s or full blown Dementia about the concept that “all are Equal under the Law.” Not quite the same as learning that the priest in your parish was getting his own pleasures off of the little kids. Yet it is sort of the same for me. Just appalling that people do not quite seem to understand that they will be held accountable for their actions. Under the laws in the U.S. but in whatever the future holds for them. In my philosophy justice delayed is not denied on the big wheel of our liftetimes.
    I don’t envy Bill Barr. At all. Don’t know how he sleeps at night knowing (I think he does) what a cesspool of dirty, self interested, agenda driven places the DOJ and FBI has been. People running AMUCK around the globe. Can’t say what has possessed them. But indeed they are possessed.
    I maybe naïve about Barr. So far for me he passes my inner “sniff sense.” Imagine how he may have calmed down the hysterical MSM masses by saying ” President Trump”s Twitter account makes it hard for me to do my job.” LOL.


  26. Retired IG says:

    Hope I didn’t sound trite re justice. I take very seriously the concepts of kharma and the “Bardo.” Couldn’t find a better reference to what occurs in the Bardo, but as I understand the Bardo, it is a time you encounter every individual you have impacted in your life, for better or ill. alike. You get to be on the receiving end of what you caused other humans to experience.
    “Used loosely, “bardo” is the state of existence intermediate between two lives on earth. According to Tibetan tradition, after death and before one’s next birth, when one’s consciousness is not connected with a physical body, one experiences a variety of phenomena. These usually follow a particular sequence of degeneration from, just after death, the clearest experiences of reality of which one is spiritually capable, and then proceeding to terrifying hallucinations that arise from the impulses of one’s previous unskillful actions. For the prepared and appropriately trained individuals, the bardo offers a state of great opp”ortunity for liberation, since transcendental insight may arise with the direct experience of reality; for others, it can become a place of danger as the karmically created hallucinations can impel one into a less than desirable rebirth.[
