The “Obstruction of Justice Trap” – Former AAG Matt Whitaker Confirms Mueller Probe Was Used As Weapon to Cover Coup Effort….

Within an interesting interview conducted by Jan Jekielek of Epoch Times, former AAG Matt Whitaker confirms what CTH long suspected. The Mueller investigation was used by corrupt interests within the special counsel’s office to threaten any/all executive branch and congressional officials with “obstruction of justice” charges if they revealed any exculpatory or counter-narrative information during the Mueller probe.

Whitaker describes this as the “obstruction of justice trap.”

Essentially, this approach confirms the second-prong purpose of the Mueller investigation itself. First, use the special counsel in 2017, 2018 and into the beginning of 2019, as a shield (hide information); and secondly a weapon (threats) against any entity who would reveal the background intelligence that undercut the Trump-Russia collusion narrative.

We know President Trump was threatened by Rod Rosenstein not to declassify any information in September of 2018 or the Mueller investigation would use that act as evidence of obstruction. Whitaker confirms that same approach was applied toward any executive branch officer who would reveal or release information to congress during the tenure of the special counsel; even within the DOJ and including the attorney general.

This is how the Mueller probe was weaponized to mislead the American people.

While the Mueller team continued the same corrupt process started in 2016; and essentially transferred the same objectives as the DOJ/FBI team under Crossfire Hurricane; that same investigative unit was used to keep information from surfacing in ’17, ’18 and ’19 that would expose the corrupt nature of the investigation itself.

Documents could not be released without Mueller approval; interviews with key FBI/DOJ officials could not be conducted without Mueller team approval; information could not be declassified without Mueller team approval, etc.

Any agency or individual that attempted to release any information was subject to the threat of indictment by the same corrupt prosecutors leading the investigation. It’s a self-fulfilling safety mechanism.  Even DOJ officials like Matt Whitaker were under threat. Whitaker calls it the “Obstruction of Justice Trap”.

With that in mind this is a very serious flaw in the authority of the special counsel statute that needs to be addressed by congress. Who can watch the watchers, when the watchers were specifically selected because they would knowingly contribute to the corruption.

Very disturbing (timestamps for interview):

♦03:43 On Judge Sullivan choosing not to dismiss the case against Gen. Flynn
♦06:54 On FBI director Christopher Wray calling for an internal investigation
♦08:41 What kind of accountability will we see for 2016 election surveillance?
♦15:27 The problem with the regulation creating Special Counsels
♦19:32 Obstruction of justice trap?
♦35:38 Communist China’s a greater threat than Russia

        it still presents a significant an interesting conundrum: many “republican” politicians are far more loyal to the deep state/d.c. establishment/uniparty than they are to donald trump or any serious reform movement coming from within republican ranks.

        yet by “protecting mueller” they protected trump from falling into the obstruction of justice trap and gave him such an advantageous position vis a vis this enormous tale of corruption going into the next presidential election.

        Doesn’t matter. It illustrates Trump’s problem perfectly. Like a CEO with a hostile board that can remove him if it decides it can ride out shareholder anger, he’s never been able to move as fast as he theoretically could, because there are enough UniParty Senators to remove him. Same message he got on the various spending bills: “We mustered 67+ votes to pass them with a “veto-proof” majority; we can do the same for impeachment.”

        And That includes the ILLary Clinton debacle where the FIB threw the so-called “investigation” and Head FIBber Comey usurped the prosecutorial discretion and powers of the DOJ by publicly deeming ILLary as unprosecutable.

        If you wonder why Judge Sullivan thinks he can play all sides, look no further than the example set by Head FIBber Comey. They both did the same thing. Made themselves judge, jury and executioner, or not.

Our Eagle-Eyed President spotted the trap and wisely chose not to step on it or cut the trip wire. He called forward his specialists to dismantle it so the troop could proceed to MAGAville. Hey Rod!

              All Israelis (barring Arabs there) are Jews, but not all Jews are Israeli. Hence blaming Israel for anything does not blame Jews per se, but only a subset. A partial subset at that, namely the government responsible, which at the moment represents almost exactly 50% of voters. Not all vote, so blaming Israel is blaming about 25% of Israelis, and disregards the diaspora.
              You could go further, and blame a tiny cabal in power, and exonerate the rest.

The corrupt, dirty cops and their Dem political allies temporarily benefited from the attempted take down of P Trump while the gullible members of the public were conned by a media they unwisely trusted.

      Without the brilliant, dogged Sidney Powell pushing the reluctant, blindered Judge to assist the Flynn defense in discovering hidden Brady material from the DOJ and FBI and a few other interested parties like Judicial Watch, CTH etc. seeking evidence in favor of Gen.

They can do this because they have bastardized the meaning and use of the First Amendment. They know the lo-fos lap it up because they WANT IT TO BE TRUE.

      Foreign assistance in the IC set-up:

      Kislyak – Russian
      Harper – Australian
      Mifsud – Italian
      Hannigan – British
      The “honeypot” (forget her name) – Russian

      Recently I read the Ukraines stepped in also.

      But an International businessman meets anyone other than an American and that provides them the opportunity to make it sound sinister. I view this new article by the NY Slimes as yet another effort to stave off telling the truth, that there WAS NO predicate for the investigation; they’re trying to prop up after- the- fact pretences so they can continue to deny that it was solely for political purposes.

    Top brass in the FBI have ratted out their director Christopher Wray with shocking revelations detailing a string on alarming conflicts and millions of dollars of investments in — of all things — Russia.

    The FBI’s top agent has as much as $5 million in personal cash invested in varying sectors in Russia, according to details provided by FBI brass and documents obtained by the Thomas Paine Podcast and the Moore Paine Show on Patreon. And also troubling about Wray’s investments in Russia? Wray has never removed himself from presiding over the FBI’s Russia collusion investigation of President Trump; the Mueller probe into Russia interference in the 2016 election, Russian allegations in the bogus Steele dossier, Russian ties to the Gen. Mike Flynn investigation, Russian advertising during the 2016 election, and criminal FBI cases involving and targeting Russian nationals and entities.

    With $5 million of Wray’s personal wealth tied up in conglomerates with Russian ties and beyond, why has Wray not divested his investments to rid himself of a blatant string of professional and ethical conflicts and moreover, where is Wray’s recusal from all things Russia in the FBI? Where is Wray’s money invested in Russia? Listen Above.

    Pelosi and Shumer thought Trump might throw in the towel in light of the impeachment, tender his resignation. and go the way of Nixon.

  28. The ONLY way that “obstruction of justice” trap works is if the acting Attorney General is criminally involved in it. This of course was already strongly indicated, because Rosenstein APPOINTED Mueller (who wasn’t even legally allowed to be appointed by him, for several reasons).

    So AG Barr, again it falls upon you: Prosecute Rosenstein, and Mueller (and everybody who worked for Mueller). Barr….Barr….Barr….

Where was he last several months after Mueller Report issued (April2019) or after Mueller”s pathetic Testimony (July 2019)? Waited till he could make money on his inside info? Bottom line – he did nothing while in position of Acting AG and did/said nothing after left Gov’t and talking after the fact only now when he can make money off of sales of his Book> NOT a Profile in Courage IMHO

    Follows along with Q post 2397 of 11/03/2018. Mueller investigation was a BLOCKADE, designed to limit POTUS ability to maneuver, to stall for time, to terminate investigations in Congress, to safeguard the Russia narrative, to divide and mobilize for future protests, riots, etc., to provide fake news with ammunition to sway public opinion, fuel impeachment, to demonstrate to foreign players that the old guard still pulled the strings, mobilize Dems for midterm and donations, and as a public outcry excuse should criminal charges be brought.

    What this points out to me is we owe a debt of gratitude to Barr for bringing the Mueller probe to an end. It was only with that probe ending that declassification and release of documents that are revealing the truth would be possible. As long as the probe was ongoing any attempt, as Sundance says, of telling the truth would be considered obstruction of justice. I hope Nunes’ recent statement that he has or intends to refer for criminal indictment members of the SC probe comes to fruition. I bet the texts among those 12 angry Democrats have incriminating evidence that would make Strozk and Page blush.

    This article by Andrew McCarthy in NR has a excellent explanation of the Courts duty towards a defendant. Quote:
    The criminal-justice system’s principal task is to provide due process to the accused. It is human nature that judges and prosecutors often come to believe that the accused is guilty, is a rogue, is gaming the system, and so on. Yet this does not change the judge’s or the prosecutor’s duty to ensure that a defendant is afforded every protection to which the system entitles him.

    Regardless of how you feel about Flynn, think about what happened here — and what you’d say about it if politics were not inflaming the public debate. The FBI serially flouted its own procedures in investigating Flynn — the lack of a basis for the investigation, the perjury trap interview, the willful decision not to advise him of all his rights or of the nature of the interview. The original prosecutors then squeezed Flynn into a guilty plea on a charge they knew was flawed, withheld exculpatory evidence that would have made the flaws obvious, and concealed from the court the full details of the plea agreement.

    Contrast this with the past actions of the FISC. Where the Judges not severely lacking in their duty? Yet we hear nothing of their failures in this process. Contreras thought nothing of proceeding against Gen Flynn when he knew he was severely compromised until he was removed. How about Berman Jackson with the knowledge of a tainted jury against Stone. Didn’t stop her or give pause. These Federal Judges are corrupt and part of the criminal acts of the FBI and DOJ against innocent people and are getting away un questioned about their motives. So we kick the can down the road and they remain on the bench?

    This is the largest affront on our Constitutional Republic since it’s Founding.

    “But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself.” Marcus Tullius Cicero

    “Power tends to corrupt and absolute power corrupts absolutely.” Lord Acton

    Not to bore anyone with old quotes, but what has happened to our Republic is as old as civilization itself. Now our nations capital is infested with self-serving swamp rats who sell influence to the highest bidder. DC even has it’s own street named for the influence peddlers K-Street. This is where retired politicians go to make some real money, just listen to what Trent Lott former Republican Senator from Mississippi said after the Tea Party thumping in 2010, “how are we going to get anything done around here with a bunch of Jim DeMint’s running around.” Oh his partner in crime former senator John Breaux Democrat Louisiana, they formed a lobby firm for “oil and gas” to lobby the same organization they had just retired from the US Senate aka the uniparty clubhouse.

    They know it, we know it and you can be certain that Bill Barr knows it. His job is to protect the facade of government “of, by and for the people.” To preserve the graft that they all feast on while they ostensibly do the peoples work. To be clear, I believe Barr will indict a few people, sacrifices will have to be made to preserve the whole, he’s even said as much, you know, his beloved DOJ and equal justice for all platitudes that he loves to spout. When in truth, he’s an extension of Bob Mueller, they attend Sunday School together.

    What wouldn’t they do? Trillions are at stake. The Hammer, Crossfire Hurricane, Crossfire Razor, Bob Mueller, Impeachment, no recess appointments, the Wuhan Con, 24/7 negative news cycle from all of the MSM, et al. These are all parts of the corrupt system we now call the swamp/NWO.

    The only thing between us and oblivion is our Great President Donald J Trump and nothing is off the table to take him out. We want justice, we must stick with this great man like glue and let these corrupt bastards know that the gig is up. Listen to the MSM, read useless polls aloud, buy into any narrative constructed by the news actors, spewing their masters screed and we will lose.

    “This is not the end, this is not even the beginning of the end, this is just perhaps the end of the beginning.” ― Winston S. Churchill

    The “White Hats” in this entire affair are the only ones who can clean it up.
    How can this be cleaned up with so many people in different branches of government in on it?
    Who is in a position to actually clean it up?

    Sidney Powell- Sidney Powell was an Assistant United States Attorney in three judicial districts under 9 United States Attorneys from both political parties. She represented the United States in 350 criminal appeals, and represented private parties in another 150, all resulting in more than 180 published decisions. She was the youngest Assistant U.S. Attorney when she began practicing. She is an elected member of the American Law Institute, and the past president of the Bar Association for the Fifth Federal Circuit and the American Academy of Appellate Lawyers.

    As soon as General Michael Flynn has his motion to dismiss granted, the same day Donald Trump
    should appoint Sidney Powell as Special Prosecutor to investigate the role the Department of Justice (Main Justice, not the FBI) had in:
    – Crossfire Hurricane
    – All FISA application abuse arising from Crossfire Hurricane
    – Any role the DoJ played in unmasking political figures
    – the role that DoJ played in appointing, deciding scope of and prosecution of defendants in the Mueller Investigation.

    President Trump should make it abundantly clear that Sidney Powell is tasked to be the Hammer of Thor in the DoJ. There will be no justice and no faith in the American Justice system if the DoJ is allowed to operate outside the letter, and the spirit of the letter, of the law. No one, no politician, no celebrity, no government bureaucrat, no member of the DoJ is above the law.

    President Trump should tell the DoJ and ALL their personnel, if you have a problem with that, then tender your resignation. The ONLY way that Washington DC can be cleaned up is to ENFORCE the rule of law.

    Once the Department of Justice is purged, then start in on the FBI.

    I predict that President Trump would garner an overwhelming avalanche of public support for that move.

    At the 22:26 mark Whitaker says “they were ready, willing and able to go after any of us” when discussing the obstruction of justice trap. Who is the “they” Mueller, Rosenstein, Weissmann? By what authority or law could they go after Whitaker who was Acting AG? I’m trying to determine how that process would work. Mueller has the legal authority to bring charges against anyone? I thought the Special Counsel role was investigative, could recommend charges, not prosecutorial? I also though the Special Counsel was under the DOJ reporting to the AG? Whitaker was Acting AG and Rod Rosenstein was Deputy Attorney General so who was in charge of the Special Counsel? Maybe I’m getting off into the weeds?

            Barr was recommended by Bush.

            I’ve been pondering about that. GHB was supposedly THE person who controlled everything in the Deep State (and beyond). PDJT allowed the Bushes to give him a war hero’s funeral, and in return they gave him Bill Barr as AG.

            The Senate (particularly the never-Trumpers) thought that Bill Barr was completely on “their” side (he only got 3 Dem votes), and so he got approved. But he immediately made it clear that he knew what had gone on and was going to put it right.

            I speculate that the “Bush cabal” saw the way things were going, towards far-left craziness, and decided that PDJT was preferable – at least for now.

            So Bill Barr was supposed to bring the small fish to “justice” and to smooth over the rest – keep the institutions credible and weed out the worst.

            And then the Law of Unintended Consequences took over.

      The authority to oversee the SC went off the rails with the Session recusal and Rosenstein in charge. He didn’t oversee but capitulated to whatever Weissman wanted. Witaker did not have the gravitas to end the investigation. He was put in place to hold the seat for Barr, stall any new charges and prevent Rod from running the doj until Barr was confirmed.

Could he have fought back? Maybe. Did he keep his head below the trench line so he wasn’t an easy target? Probably. But I am not going to sit here in my comfy chair and judge the man. He strikes me as honest and frankly I bet he is glad to be out of that snake pit. You threaten me or my family physically and I will fight back, I know this because I have done it. I am wired to to react that way. You threaten to put me in jail and bankrupt my family or prosecute my family and bring the full weight of the government in to crush them- I am going to react differently. I would like to think I would stand tall against that, but I don’t know. Maybe Mr. Whitaker saw what looked like a fight we was going to lose and lose badly and chose to keep his powder dry or maybe just get out with his life intact. I can’t say that I blame the man. The depth of the corruption in our government is so staggering and disgusting it is just beyond words. I love the information that I learn here but it is also sometimes really depressing.

      Yeah, I understand the frustration, but Gowdy and Nunes saud the same thing: (start at 37:20)

      Trey Gowdy Podcast: Devin Nunes: The Origins of The Russia Probe

      https://radio.foxnews.com/podcast/trey-gowdy/

      They both say they tried to avoid seeing certain documents (even though that was their job, Congressional Oversight) because they felt they were being setup for an “obstruction of justice” charge by Andrew Weissmann and didn’t have the money to defend themselves. And Gowdy says Nunes would send him to the SCIF so that Nunes would not get in any more hot water than he already was (as he was already under an ethics investigation in the House). I imagine if Nunes felt that way, Whitaker felt it too. And it seems like Gowdy left Congress for just this reason. No doubt he had a target on his back.

      I can imagine Nunes & Gowdy thinking, if Weissmann could do this to a decorated three star, Lieutenant General & National Security Advisor, what chance did a three-term Congressman from North Carolina have? Going $3,000,000 dollars in debt and facing prison would probably make a lot of other people have second thoughts. It sounded to me that Gowdy left Washington for just this reason… no fun having to dodge career ending/life altering landmines for a living. Very sad…
