trouble for Team Mueller

Sometimes it is the quiet, elusive ones who come back to haunt you. And for ex-special prosecutor Robert Mueller, one of those might be a Russian billionaire named Oleg Deripaska. The oligarch who once controlled Russia’s largest aluminum empire has been an international man of intrigue in the now-completed and disproven Trump collusion investigation. (Snip) Deripaska confirmed a story told to me more than a year ago by law enforcement sources: He was indeed interviewed by FBI agents in September 2016 during the early Russia probe, and he told them he strongly doubted the bureau’s theory that the

Comments:

September 2016: He told the FBI that he strongly doubted there was any Russian collusion. He also mounted an investigation (at his own expense) into an FBI agent captured in Iran in 2007 while on a CIA mission. Too complex to synopsize. Solomon believes Mueller has a conflict of interest

Mueller is up to his eyeballs in conflict of interest. If there was an honest judge in D.C. Mueller would be toast.

Very interesting bit of background. Given that the FBI has been lying for at least three years, I am inclined to believe the Russian, Deripaska, who had nothing to gain by Trump's election, except for finally getting fair treatment from the corrupt State Department. He didn't realize that he had to drop millions into the Clinton Foundation to get a visa

The FBI and DOJ have earned their monikers of being dirty cops and dirty lawyers. Are the replacements just like them and just waiting for the statue of limitations to run out? Is that why Barr hasn't revoked all those full immunities that Mueller passed out? Where's that IG report from May, Jun, and now Jul and soon to be Aug, then Sep, Oct, Nov, Dec, etc.?

Kamala Harris Blasts, and Takes Money

WASHINGTON — Kamala Harris bemoaned the influence of the powerful and connected elite last Tuesday when she called on top Justice Department officials to recuse themselves from any matter related to Jeffrey Epstein. She said their former law firm’s work on behalf of the financier accused of sexual abuse “calls into question the integrity of our legal system.” Yet the same day, Harris’ husband headlined a Chicago fundraiser for her presidential campaign that was hosted by six partners of that firm — Kirkland and Ellis, according to an invitation obtained by The Associated Press.

There is a clear difference between the Democrat Party and President Donald Trump — Democrats promise to improve the lives of women, but Trump actually does it. For more than two and a half years, my father-in-law has been implementing pro-growth policies that have made America more prosperous than ever before — and women have benefitted as much as anybody. In April, female unemployment reached 3.4 percent, the lowest it has been since October 1953.

Democrats don’t believe they can win the White House back in 2020 by allowing the American people to decide. No, they need to impeach him before the election. So says longtime Democrat Congressman, Al Green.(Snip) …”I will again, this month, bring impeachment to a vote on the floor of the U.S. House of Representatives for bigotry in policy, harmful to our society. #RacistPresident #ImpeachNow,” the Texas Democrat tweeted. Earlier this year, Green said he believes the president will be re-elected if he is not impeached before 2020.

Businessman Ed Butowsky filed a lawsuit on Monday that outed FOX News reporter Ellen Ratner was his source for the Seth Rich information. This comes after Michael Isikoff’s report last week that labeled Butowsky as a Russian source. Ed told The Gateway Pundit today that Ellen Ratner lied to Isikoff. Ed provided The Gateway Pundit with a copy of his email with Ratner. Butowsky added that he spoke with Isikoff off the record and he broke his trust by contacting Ratner.

A rather stunning report from Gateway Pundit outlines information contained within a lawsuit filing. The lawsuit, filed by Businessman Ed Butowsky, alleges Wikileaks founder Julian Assange confirmed to Fox News analyst Ellen Ratner that the DNC leaked emails were received from Seth Rich and his brother Aaron. The details contained within the lawsuit filing (full pdf below) are stunning. If this information is true and accurate, the DOJ claim of a Russian hack –based on assertions by DNC contractor, Crowdstrike– would be entirely false. Additionally the DC murder of Seth Rich would hold a far more alarming motive.

The arrest last week of wealthy financier and sex criminal Jeffrey Epstein has resonated in Israel because of his mysterious—but well-known—ties to former Prime Minister Ehud Barak, who announced a new bid for office last week, and whose name appeared in Epstein’s infamous black book of prominent guests. The news could not have come at a better time for current Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who is facing a tough reelection campaign after failing to form a government following elections in April, throwing the country into an unprecedented second consecutive electoral campaign.

Regular readers know that I am a fan of President Trump, and more often than not, a fan of his use of social media. But today he committed the worst unforced error of his presidency, one that we will hear about from the Democrats from now until November 2020. This morning the president tweeted about “‘Progressive’ Democratic Congresswomen”: [Tweet]I assume Trump is talking about Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and her “Squad,” and I share his low opinion of those ill-informed leftists. And no doubt he had in mind Ilhan Omar when he referred to “countries whose governments are a complete and total catastrophe,” etc. His description certainly applies to Somalia.
