USA Police State Under Special Counsel Robert Mueller


By S. Nobel

Trump’s former campaign manager, Paul Manafort is in solitary confinement 23 hours a day as if he were the Birdman of Alcatraz or Al Capone.

It is for his “protection” as he awaits trial in Virginia.

Paul Manafort was once respected. He managed campaigns for Republicans Gerald Ford, Ronald Reagan, George H. W. Bush, and Bob Dole.

Special Counsel Robert Mueller and the shady lawyers he hired are known for violating peoples’ rights to get them to turn state’s evidence. One judge in Manafort’s case has mentioned several times that Robert Mueller is obviously putting the screws to him to get him to turn on President Trump.

Manafort cannot adequately prepare for his trial in confinement. His lawyers are two hours away because the government made sure Manafort was nowhere near them when he was imprisoned.

Manafort was jailed because he spoke with a witness which he is not allowed to do. The rub is Manafort doesn’t know who the witnesses are because the government won’t tell him.

MANAFORT APPEALS

His lawyer Kevin Downing has appealed but the government hit back. Assistant special counsel Scott Meisler wrote the appeal notion should be denied, as Manafort’s actions were “committed through covert corrupt persuasion” and that the terms of his sentence “are common to defendants incarcerated pending trial.”

That is not true that it is “common”. In this country, we don’t imprison white collar, non-violent people, before they are convicted of anything. And we certainly don’t put them in solitary confinement.

Manafort has pleaded not guilty to more than 20 charges in the special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation, including tax and bank fraud, conspiracy, obstruction of justice, and failure to register as a foreign agent.

Mueller just kept piling on the charges.

Alan Dershowitz called it “obnoxious to our Constitution.”

“He has never been convicted of anything. He is as innocent as you and I,” the Harvard Law School professor said in an interview on MSNBC in mid-June.

“And the idea of locking somebody up before a trial is so obnoxious to our Constitution that every civil libertarian should be up in arms. What they can do if they think that he’s tampering with witnesses is: They can subject him to home arrest, take away his computer … they can have all kinds of restrictions, but the idea of putting somebody in jail before they’ve been convicted is an enactment of civil liberties.”

POLICE STATE USA

It doesn’t matter if Paul Manafort is found guilty. It matters that we have a Constitution and we are not a police state. We might be on the way to becoming a police state if we allow the egregious actions by this Special Counsel to continue. Perhaps you disagree, let us know.

Putting a non-violent, white collar criminal in jail based on accusations seems very wrong. Manafort has been convicted of nothing. He allegedly contacted a witness but the prosecution will not tell Manafort who the witnesses or victims are. His defense says it is impossible to not contact witnesses when he doesn’t know who the witnesses are.

Knowing that the Obama-appointed leftist judge threw him in jail until trial. She has a history of leftist rulings.

Manafort is accused of crimes he allegedly committed in 2006 and 2009. One of the “crimes”, the FARA violation is something half of D.C. lobbyists have done. The alleged crimes were mostly actions he admitted to years ago in an effort to help the government in another case. He said he was promised immunity at the time.

Former U.S. Attorney Sidney Powell said it is all orchestrated to get Manafort to turn on Trump even if he needs to make up something. She said the Mueller people are trying to shut down all opportunities for Manafort to prepare a defense. Her book License to Lie deals with the corruption in the DoJ prior to this case. Many in the book are the same shady characters on Mueller’s team.

“Collusion Against Trump” Timeline


Sharyl Attkisson

It’s easy to find timelines that detail Trump-Russia collusion developments. Here are links to two of them I recommend:

Politifact Russia-Trump timeline

Washington Post Russia-Trump timeline

On the other side, evidence has emerged in the past year that makes it clear there were organized efforts to collude against candidate Donald Trump–and then President Trump. For example:

  • Anti-Russian Ukrainians allegedly helped coordinate and execute a campaign against Trump in partnership with the Democratic National Committee and news reporters.
  • A Yemen-born ex-British spy reportedly delivered political opposition research against Trump to reporters, Sen. John McCain, and the FBI; the latter of which used the material–in part–to obtain wiretaps against one or more Trump-related associates.
  • There were orchestrated leaks of anti-Trump information and allegations to the press, including by ex-FBI Director James Comey.
  • The U.S. intel community allegedly engaged in questionable surveillance practices and politially-motivated “unmaskings” of U.S. citizens, including Trump officials.
  • Alleged conflicts of interests have surfaced regarding FBI officials who cleared Hillary Clinton for mishandling classified information and who investigated Trump’s alleged Russia ties.

But it’s not so easy to find a timeline pertinent to the investigations into these events.

Here’s a work in progress.

Department of State knew Clinton used private email


Hillary Clinton’s private e-mail server was not a secondary server to her State Department one, it was her only one.  The State Department has always known this, yet it has flown almost completely under the radar.

Special Report: Mueller Has Strozk Out!

The only thing Trump obstructed was a partisan railroading.


The American Spectator

The other night MSNBC ran a fawning documentary about James Comey. It was full of howlers about the unfathomable depths of his “integrity.” None of the clips age well, but one in particular captured the utter lunacy of Comey serving as Mueller’s presumed chief witness — a clip in which Comey accuses Trump of “lies, plain and simple” for describing the FBI as “poorly led” and in “disarray.” Here is a former FBI director categorizing Trump’s opinion, and a manifestly correct one at that, as “lies.”

That’s the fatuous, un-rigorous level on which Mueller’s probe is proceeding. His forthcoming report will consist largely of his close friend’s hyperventilating grievances against Trump, as if the wounded ego of one of the worst FBI directors in American history, an FBI director the Justice Department’s Inspector General has found to be unprofessional and reckless, counts as a “constitutional crisis.”

The Mueller probe is like a Soviet show trial revolving around the hurt feelings of a pampered commissar. Comey was practically in tears as he recalled those “lies, plain and simple.” But Mueller has an even bigger problem than just the silliness of Comey’s complaints, which is Comey’s utter lack of credibility: How do you build an obstruction-of-justice case on a witness who is himself under Department of Justice investigation for improprieties?

That came out in the Congressional hearings this week with Inspector General Michael Horowitz. On Monday, Horowitz informed the senators that he is looking at Comey’s mishandling of classified information — a subject Comey with his inimitable presumption had dismissed as too “frivolous” for anyone to investigate.

The roots of Mueller’s tree are hopelessly poisoned — from a former FBI director whose word and behavior no one can seriously trust (yet it was his complaint that led to Mueller’s appointment) to a staff, both past and present, shot through with anti-Trump bias. How can anyone take the conclusion of a probe seriously if that probe should never have been started in the first place? Were this a real trial rather than a show trial, the judge would have ended it a long time ago.

Mueller, according to his mandate, is supposed to be completing a counterintelligence investigation launched by Peter Strzok, the most abominably anti-Trump partisan FBI official imaginable. That fact alone discredits it. Imagine a judge telling a jury to decide the fate of the accused based on an investigation started by one of his fiercest enemies. In Mueller’s case, the circumstances are even worse than that: he not only inherited Strzok’s poisoned work but added Strzok to his team and would have kept him on it until the end of the probe had Horowitz not revealed Strzok’s anti-Trump texts. Strzok, as he explained to his mistress, had joined the team in the hopes of inducing the impeachment of Trump. Strzok described the Mueller probe as “unfinished business.”

HERE IT IS: The Top 10 Different Reasons The IG’s Report On the Clinton Email ‘Matter’ Is Flawed

Obama’s Deep State Runs Deep


 

by Joe Hoft
TheGatewayPundit.com

We reported in January that “DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz Has the Potential to Be the Greatest Inspector in US History – He Also Could Be Deep State Hack”. 

We received the answer this Thursday and our verdict – Although the IG’s report includes some obvious and already released information about the criminal actions of Hillary Clinton and Obama’s DOJ and FBI, it overall fails in many respects to share an accurate story.  Therefore, based on the report, our assessment is that the DOJ’s IG is just another Deep State Hack!

We reported in January –

Many in the media are getting excited about the upcoming release of the IG’s report into his investigation of abuses at the DOJ. But if it turns out that Horowitz is part of the deep state, the report may be disappointing.

Is IG Horowitz a Good Guy?

There’s reason to believe that Horowitz is a good guy. Last week Horowitz announced that he located the text messages after the FBI said they were lost –
