Another One! Mueller Deputy Was
Personal Attorney of Ben Rhodes,
Represented Clinton Foundation

PJ Media, by Debra Heine

Original Article

Posted By:Pluperfect, 12/6/2017 4:39:12 AM

On Fox News Tuesday night, Laura Ingraham reported that yet another one of Robert Mueller´s deputies in his Russia investigation is compromised due to her track record as a blatant partisan. Jeannie Rhee, who was hired by Mueller last summer to work on the probe, was the personal attorney of Ben Rhodes and also represented the Clinton Foundation, Ingraham revealed. "This information will put further pressure on Special Prosecutor Bob Mueller to resign." Rhee is the third member of the Mueller team this week who has been shown to be brazenly partisan. Two other members of the team have been revealed as

It will be interesting to hear the views of self-anointed “ethics” “experts” like Walter Shaub, Richard Painter and most of all, Norman Eisen — the Obama buddy, bagman and all-around factotum who gave us Hillary’s risible “ethics agreement” as Secretary of State — concerning Ms. Rhee’s participation in a prosecution that necessarily involves — at a minimum as witnesses, but much more likely as full-fledged criminal perps — her “former” law clients Ben “Mind Meld with Zero” Rhodes, and Bill and Hillary in their stage personae and personal piggy bank known as the Clinton Foundation.

Rosenstein appointed Mueller and got the hit team he wanted. Rosenstein can also fire Mueller. He won´t because it would expose himself as complicit with all of the Butcher´s dirty deals, including Uranium One and the e-mail cover-up.

Seven million dollars and a team of Socialist Clinton lovers have not been able to find proof that Pres. Trump or any of his staff colluded with the Russians. It is time to put a stop to this travesty.

Something brought up in this article that has been downplayed in recent turmoil over Mueller´s team...

FTA
The operation primarily focused on discrediting Flynn, an opponent of the Iran nuclear deal, in order to handicap the Trump administration´s efforts to disclose secret details of the nuclear deal with Iran that had been long hidden by the Obama administration.

Insiders familiar with the anti-Flynn campaign told the Free Beacon that these Obama loyalists plotted in the months before Trump´s inauguration to establish a set of roadblocks before Trump´s national security team, which includes several prominent opponents of diplomacy with Iran. The Free Beacon first reported on this effort in January."

Once the election was lost to the O administration.. all out efforts were devised to get rid of Flynn because of what he knew about the rotten Iran deal. Also, to get rid of Sessions so he was out of the picture on the false narrative.. Russia.

It was and is quite the plan... and now it´s time to demand that all this is exposed. I don´t want Trump shutting down Mueller.. that will give the Dems and the MSM all the fodder they are looking for ..for "obstruction".. Let it be Rosenstein. or the new FBI director. Enough of ruining lives when so many crimes were actually covered up.

It is hard to suspend belief that Rosenstein had no prior idea what kind of people Mueller was planning to bring in. They are all in on this - thick as thieves. If justice is to flow down like rolling waters (to paraphrase the risible Comey) Rosenstein, McCabe the whole lot need to be sacked.

FTA: What we´re seeing here is a pattern and practice of Mueller hiring known Clinton and Obama political insiders and boosters, supporters to undo a presidential election
Here´s my question. These people were hired last JUN-SEPT. And not a single Republican, conservative journalist, or even Trump inner circle person bothered to check them out or see a disturbing pattern about their backgrounds until NOW? Nobody, NOBODY questioned this? Why is it we´re playing defense on this?

If Fox News knows this President Trump knows it too. I think Trump is completing his first year´s agenda and into next year will drop his ´neutron bomb´ on the whole lot of them and maybe by the third year go after ´crooked Hillary´. President Trump is a smart and shrewd business man so right now he´ll sit back and tweet his thoughts to the American people. Hillary and her ilk might rue the day they mentioned Russia and Russians.

When will the Republican leaders, including Jeff Sessions, start enforcing laws? There is no evidence that Trump colluded with the Russians which was a manufactured story to cover-up the democrats´ real crime that Hilliary, also a candidate for President, did collude with the Russians and sold them our uranium while Secretary of State. What the democrats are viciously charging Republicans with is what they have already done and are trying to cover-up. Since they say Trump is an "imposter", what does that make Obama or Hillary?

I really don´t understand why all of a sudden there is such shock regarding those on the Muller team. I realize that now there are recent specific incidents showing their blatant bias, but at the outset I posted, and many other posters did too, the backgrounds of those chosen by Mueller that showed they were ALL biased Obama and Clinton supporters. Links below shows the list of them.  The backgrounds of Rhee, Strzok and Weissmann are all given. Of course Rhee´s does not show that she was attorney for Ben Rhodes nor does it mention Weissmann was almost disbarred.. The first link shows that she was asst. AG for Holder and advised Obama on criminal law and executive issues. For anyone to think she wouldn´t be biased is out of their mind.  

The worst choice was Andrew Weissmann. The link below from the Washington Times gives an excellent summary of his gross misdeeds. He should have been disbarred. Instead he was let off the hook by a New York judge and let AG Lynch decide what to do with him even though they were defending him in the disbarment.  Link below.  Just stunning.  It is even worse because Weissmann is the one who prosecuted Manafort and Gates. As more is revealed it will confirm what we already knew and prove Trump was right once again.

We´ve known this for months. Geez, this intrigue by conservative news is getting stupid. Look, the federal government´s law enforcement branches, the GOP, all Obama, Clinton, and even W appointed bureaucrats, judges, etc, all the elected Marxists; ALL of them are trying to impeach Trump and have been since Nov 9, 2016. That´s their mission and goal and they will NOT stop. Did we not know Ben Rhodes´ personal attorney was on the Mueller team last February? YES, we did.

Good grief, is conservative media competing for a Howie Kurtz Firm-Grasp-Of-The-Obvious Award?

So, now there´s proof, PROOF I tell you that the Mueller Russia investigation is one sided? Wow. Makes me want to go buy a pillow, a mattress, a safe and maybe even get my old VCR tapes converted to digital media.

To reinforce #8:
Jeff Sessions can easily un-recuse himself with the argument that the recusal was based on issues of Russian collusion. Since Mueller´s witch hunt has clearly left the collusion tracks, Sessions can assert himself and terminate this coup.

Do it for your country, Jeff!

With a Department as large and swampy as Justice, if you were Sessions, would you just go in and start investigating all the areas we all know should have been long ago? Think again. How would you know who to put on the investigative teams? How do you try to ensure any investigations wouldn´t be sabotaged from within? You don´t know. So, you slowly begin the process of purging the swamp within the department before you go after the previous administration perpetrators. I think it´s possible that is precisely what Sessions is doing, and doing so in his inimical, understated manner, like the proverbial swimming duck whose feet are churning but the duck doesn´t seem to be going very fast. There is plenty of time to drop the MOABs once a loyal team is in place in the FBI and all the legal areas within the Justice Dept.

Media’s Unhinged Attacks on

In this season of frenzied liberal assault on the incumbent president and the almost uniform view of the long-standing bipartisan political elite of the United States that President Trump is a maniac, any falsehood about him or act of obstruction is justified in damaging his presidency, impairing his ability to govern, and bringing forward the swiftest possible return of the status quo ante-Trump. It is now routine for the principal outlets of media mythmaking to invoke the legacy of Richard Nixon confected by his accusers of long ago. The particular myth that has for several years been the preferred falsehood

There is a profound difference between (i) the soap-opera charges now being leveled by some opportunistic women against President Donald Trump and leveraged for cheap political gain by the Gillibrand Hypocrites within the Democrat Party and (ii) the pants-dropping of The Icon, John Conyers, and the butt-squeezing, tongue-slithering obscenities of Sen. Al Franken (who now indeed will have to leave the upper chamber, with no Roy Moore to counterbalance). Conyers and Franken have lost all legitimacy. By contrast, the American people elected President Trump with full transparent cognition of his public and private portfolio, thereby validating his office. 1. Personal Character

There was plenty of blame to go around as the Republican Party attempted to reconcile Tuesday’s painful election loss in deeply conservative Alabama, but most of the finger-pointing was directed at former White House chief political strategist Steve Bannon. Rep. Peter T. King of New York called on fellow Republicans to dump him. Former White House press secretary Anthony Scaramucci told Bloomberg TV that Mr. Bannon “has to be defeated by the Republican Party and frankly [he] has to be defeated by America.” A close ideological ally of President Trump, Mr. Bannon is leading a populist insurgency against the party’s Washington establishment

There was a rush to judgment last week on Peter Strzok, a top FBI counterintelligence agent and one of the lead agents on the Hillary Clinton emails investigation, after revelations that Strzok exchanged text messages during the 2016 campaign with an FBI lawyer that were pro-Clinton and anti-Trump. The lawyer was Lisa Page, with whom he was having an extramarital affair. Like Strzok, Page worked on both the Clinton probe and on special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation of possible Trump campaign collusion with Russia. In light of the obvious appearance of bias, Mueller rightly removed Strzok from the Trump-Russia case. (Page had

Democratic leaders aren’t going to shut down the government to save Dreamers in December. Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi haven’t stopped fighting to deliver something on immigration by the end of the month. But they’ve subtly shifted their rhetoric in recent days and aren’t insisting that deportation relief be paired with a government funding bill this year. Top Democrats’ retreat from demands on a deal before 2018 ensures they won’t get blamed for a possible shutdown and won’t upend Senate talks on a bipartisan deal combining relief for Dreamers with border security. Those negotiations appear

Political elites on both sides of the Atlantic are still frothing over President Donald Trump’s retweeting of three videos recording Muslims acting badly. The videos originated with a reviled British organization, Britain First, deemed a hate group by the British establishment for linking Britain’s high levels of Muslim immigration to incidents of Islamic terrorism.

WASHINGTON — Senior F.B.I. officials who helped investigate Donald J. Trump’s presidential campaign last year wrote in text messages that Hillary Clinton “just has to win” and described a potential Trump victory as “terrifying,” according to texts released Tuesday night. A top counterintelligence agent, Peter Strzok, exchanged the messages with Lisa Page, a senior F.B.I. lawyer. Some messages criticized Mrs. Clinton’s team, the Obama administration, Congress and other Democrats. But the two appeared appalled at some of Mr. Trump’s comments during the campaign and feared that he would politicize the F.B.I. For example, after Mr. Trump made an apparent sexual allusion related

A former employee of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau is calling for an investigation after accusing managers of falsifying documents to impose fines on a payday lender. Cassandra Jackson, a former CFPB examiner in the southeast division, sent a letter last week to Attorney General Jeff Sessions also accusing managers of "widespread racism and gender discrimination." Jackson said her superiors at the CFPB asked her to falsify documents during her investigation into a Texas-based payday lending company, Ace Cash Express. "During the course of this examination, I was asked to change, remove, and otherwise falsify documents connected with this examination," Jackson said. Jackson said

Bannon´s ´kingmaker´ status

"There´s a special place in hell for Republicans who should know better,” former senior White House adviser Steve Bannon said on the eve of Alabama´s U.S. Senate election, as he went all-in for embattled Republican candidate Roy Moore. The next day, voting results showed Democrat Doug Jones to be the victor in the deep-red state, making him the first non-Republican to win a U.S. Senate seat there in more than two decades -- although Moore has not conceded. If Jones´ victory stands, it would tarnish the supposed “kingmaker” status Bannon enjoyed since Moore triumphed in the Republican primary over an establishment-backed candidate.

"Consumed by his paranoia about the deep state, Donald Trump has disappeared into the fog of his own conspiracy theories," declared the Times´ Maureen Dowd. "Paranoia seizes Trump´s White House," reported Politico, noting the suspicion that "career intelligence operatives are working to undermine the new president." Actually, they were.

Special prosecutors, investigators, and counsels are usually a bad idea. They are admissions that constitutionally mandated institutions don’t work — and can be rescued only by supposed superhuman moralists, who are without the innate biases inherent in human nature. The record from Lawrence Walsh to Ken Starr to Patrick Fitzgerald suggests otherwise. Originally narrow mandates inevitably expand — on the cynical theory that everyone has something embarrassing to hide. Promised “short” timelines and limited budgets are quickly forgotten. Prosecutors search for ever new crimes to justify the expense and public expectations of the special-counsel appointment. Soon the investigators need to

Franken announced last Thursday that he would be resigning “in the coming weeks” after eight different women accused him of groping or forcibly kissing them. “The timing of Franken’s resignation remains unclear, as is his motive in delaying it,” New York Magazine’s Ed Kilgore noted at the time. Franken has yet to offer any more specificity about when he’s going to follow through in resigning. Franken’s office did not return multiple requests for comment on the subject. Franken begrudgingly offered his resignation after 35 Democratic senators called on him to do so, three weeks after he was first accused

President Trump attacked Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.) in a sexually suggestive tweet Tuesday morning that implied Gillibrand would do just about anything for money, prompting a swift and immediate backlash. “Lightweight Senator Kirsten Gillibrand, a total flunky for Charles E. Schumer and someone who would come to my office ´begging´ for campaign contributions not so long ago (and would do anything for them), is now in the ring fighting against Trump,” the president wrote. “Very disloyal to Bill & Crooked-USED!”

Margaret Thatcher was born one. So were predecessor Prime Ministers Benjamin Disraeli and William E. Gladstone. Diana, the princess of Wales, too. Also William Pitt, who presided over the British victory in the French and Indian War and lent his name to Pittsburgh. And, according to some university authorities four decades ago, me as well. We were all born commoners. But — despite what newspapers, websites and television stations on both sides of the Atlantic have reported with wonder and wild-eyed delight — Meghan Markle, the actor who is to marry Prince Harry, is not a commoner. She’s an American, and

Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) faced criticism for saying that President Donald Trump “slut-shamed” Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) with a non-sexual insult, Tuesday. After President Donald Trump made a post on Twitter claiming that Sen. Gillibrand “would do anything” for campaign contributions, Sen. Warren made her own post accusing Trump of “slut-shaming.” “Are you really trying to bully, intimidate and slut-shame @SenGillibrand?” asked Sen. Warren in her post. “Do you know who you’re picking a fight with? Good luck with that, @realDonaldTrump. Nevertheless, #shepersisted.” Are you really trying to bully, intimidate and slut-shame @SenGillibrand? Do you know who you´re picking a fight with? Good

Alabama is one of the most reliably Republican states in the country. The last time a Democrat was elected was in 1992, and no Democrat has won more than 40 percent of the vote in a Senate race there since 1996. The closest election in recent memory was in 2002, when Jeff Sessions won re-election by a razor-thin margin of 19 points. Sen. Richard Shelby has won his last three elections by 35 points, 30 points and 28 points, respectively. So it takes a special kind of stupid to pick a candidate who can lose to a Democrat in Alabama.

MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” co-host Mika Brzezinski is still fired up about President Trump’s tweet mocking Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand and took her frustrations out on first lady Melania Trump and first daughter Ivanka Trump. “[Trump] should have apologized for being a sexist pig,” Brzezinski said. “And the women around him, his wife, who has a platform against cyber bullying, that’s a joke. That’s the saddest thing I’ve ever seen.” Brzezinski then shifted her attention to Ivanka Trump, “Who came to Washington… to develop a platform for women,” but has stood by her father. “Go home. You’re doing nothing if you stand

The Alabama Supreme Court has reportedly stayed a lower court’s order to election officials that would have required the preservation of voting records in Tuesday’s Senate special election. A circuit judge on Monday ordered election officials to set voting machines to save all digital ballot images, which would preserve voting records in the event of a recount. Alabama´s AL.com said Tuesday morning that the state´s Supreme Court had blocked the order.

From America’s Catholic bishops to prominent Christian pastor Jim Wallis, congressional Republicans’ push for an overhaul of the tax code has been called nothing less than ungodly. The debate about tax rates and income numbers has taken on pointedly religious overtones, with House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, California Democrat, citing Pope Francis and St. Augustine in attacking the bill and saying it would signify Armageddon. Mr. Wallis led a protest against the tax plan at the Hart Senate Office Building, reading Bible verses before he was escorted away by Capitol Police. The U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops released a lengthy
