Russian Probe: Mueller update on the indictment of Gates-Manafort are compelling!

On the 12th January Special Counsel Robert Mueller gave a Status Report to the United States District Court for the District of Columbia. This Status Report was on the indictment and investigation into Robert Gates and Paul Manafort. We can see by the information that the investigation are getting enough documentation and evidence to build a case against these gentlemen. They already have criminal counts on them and within this update, they are describing what sort of material they have collected.

If Manafort and Gates should be worried, they should be know. If they have documentation that also connects directly to the Trump Organization or the Trump Campaign. Knowing the connection between the gentlemen and the Trump inner-circle is well-known. Manafort was even running the campaign for a long while for the now President. So its not like he was random fella picked up on the streets in and around the Trump Tower in mid-town Manhattan, New York.

What Mueller was stating was this:

As of the date of this filing, the government has completed a substantial portion of the discovery in this case, including the following: a. more than 590,000 items1 in load-ready format, including (but not limited to) financial records, records from vendors identified in the indictment, email communications involving the defendants, and corporate records; b. approximately 2,200 documents that the government has identified as “hot” documents” (…) “On December 20, 2017, the government made its fifth discovery production, consisting of, among other things: (1) a hard drive with 123,000 separate items in load-ready format, (2) copies of thirty-six electronic devices and/or media,3 and (3) nine additional “hot” documents” (…) “On January 12, 2018, the government made its sixth discovery production, consisting of, among other things: (1) a flash drive with approximately 50,000 separate items in load-ready format, (2) approximately 7000 pages of additional financial and other records, including additional foreign bank records obtained after the commencement of discovery, (3) approximately 120 additional “hot” documents, (4) two additional search warrants and related applications, and (5) imaged copies of fifteen devices and/or media seized from Manafort’s residence” (…) “The government will continue to make additional rolling productions of load-ready documents, including of documents obtained on an ongoing basis. The government expects to make its next production early the week of January 15, to include copies of six additional devices/or media that will be provided to both defendants. Thereafter, two additional devices seized from Manafort’s residence will remain to be produced to Gates. These devices are currently in the process of being reviewed by a separate team to identify privileged material that will not be produced to Gates” (United States District Court for the District of Columbia, 12.01.2018).

We can see how diligent the FBI investigation and the Special Counsel Mueller is when concerning his case. The build-up and the drop of “hot” documents, proves that they have evidence of illegal activity already within both financial documents and also possible other affairs. As the counts of criminal conduct already been dropped, we can have an idea what sort of connections and sort of paper trail the two indicted men has left behind.

We can just imagine what sort of details and breadcrumbs that are within the material the investigation has alone on this gentlemen. That Manafort and Gates has left behind important information in these documents towards the Russian probe. They should clearly have something in the emails, in the transactions and all through. Surely, the should be something in a big in all of this. Even in it be able to hook people higher up the food-chain. If it would be Jared Kushner, Donald Trump Junior, Ivanka Trump and even the unstable misdemeanor Donald J. Trump. Surely, they are all connected and implicated in the paper trail left behind here. It would be strange if there wasn’t anything, as the Campaign and the Manafort effort was together. There should be some shared information in between the emails and within the documents.

I would really look forward to see the collected and intelligence inside this, to see what these gentlemen has done and why they are under house awaiting trial and motion schedule, which is now put to be on the 14th May 2018. We have to see if there will be more drop of information and documentation into what criminal activity these two has done. Peace.

Russian Probe: The New York Gang stumbles as the Mueller investigations obtains critical E-Mails from the Trump Transition team!

You know that the New York Gang aka the Trump Administration suffers another big blow. As the reports that Special Counsel Robert Mueller got the E-Mails from Government Services and Servers to his investigation in the Russian Probe. Clearly, they are worried, as the Legal Team of the Transition and the Trump Administration has sent letters to the Congress. They are saying it is a breach of Privacy, even if it was on “work” e-mail or even on government sanctioned space, which means there are different rules, than on a private e-mail server or public. Where the state needs to follow other guidelines to get the information or the e-mails in question. The ones working in the Transition Team signed-up and also indicated the usage in the agreement before getting the accounts. Therefore, their complaint is without merit. Just one that concern.

Here is the big scoop!

Special Counsel Robert Mueller has obtained “many tens of thousands” of Trump transition emails, including emails of Jared Kushner, transition team sources tell Axios. Trump officials discovered Mueller had the emails when his prosecutors used them as the basis for questions to witnesses, the sources said. The emails include 12 accounts, one of which contains about 7,000 emails, the sources said. The accounts include the team’s political leadership and the foreign-policy team, the sources said. Why it matters: The transition emails are said to include sensitive exchanges on matters that include potential appointments, gossip about the views of particular senators involved in the confirmation process, speculation about vulnerabilities of Trump nominees, strategizing about press statements, and policy planning on everything from war to taxes” (Allen, 2017).

For those complaining that the Mueller investigation got the E-Mails. Let just show how the Department of State are addressing E-Mails: “Electronic mail messages that meet the definition of records in the Federal Records Act (44 U.S.C. 3101 et seq.) are covered under the same disposition schedule as all other Federal records. This means that emails you send us will be preserved and maintained for varying periods of time if those emails meet the definition of Federal records. Electronic messages that are not records are deleted when no longer needed” (U.S. Department of State).

So it seems strange that the Trump Team and Trump Administration with their legal advisors having trouble that the FBI investigation have gotten the e-mails from them. The stories told in them and the timelines might give the investigation more reasons for the collusion with Russia. Even say more about their direct contact with Russian Operatives, that we haven’t known yet. They might even have more damaging intelligence on how they was operating in general.

The New York Gang should be worries, since there are already two people who have pleaded guilty, Michael Flynn and George Papadopoulos. Together with the ones who is also charged Paul Manafort and Richard Gates. There are clearly stuff going-on that are collected and that Mueller is looking into. That President Trump and his team is worried about. Which is the whole reason for the Fox News attacks on the obtaining of E-Mails. While the station was bitching for months, that the FBI had to search Hillary Clinton servers again and again. The ironies cannot be written big enough on the wall. Not even on billboards on the avenues of New York.

The investigation are clearly going into interesting territories now, as there was just about a week or two ago, when Mueller subpoena the Duetche Bank for records on Trump and Trump Organization. This will tell stories that might hurt Trump even more, since his business dealings is kept a secret. Because, there must be something shady hidden there, since he is afraid of keeping it public.

The Mueller investigation just litigated and obtained Federal Document. Nothing else, accounts and E-Mails that was put on state property and through state services. These can be obtained and can be accessed by an investigation. There are different rules and different sentiment to that. This is not some random spot check without concern of privacy regulations. That is why the Legal Team of Trump wrote letters to the Congress and not to Mueller. Since they have no merit and cannot stop them from seeing and analyzing the e-mails. If the Trump Transition Team had been clean and had nothing to hide. They wouldn’t scream like cry-babies. Secondly, if your doing crime, don’t do it on public property; you do it in a secret den of thieves and not on the boulevard.

This should be settled. It is very much smoke, but no fire. Unless, some of the E-Mails are released or some of the possible conversations between the Transition Team is talking reckless. If they all are as bright as Donald Trump Jr. then it is picking for Mueller. He has not proven to be most brilliant New Yorker. The net is cast and the fishes are caught. Now we can just await the next move by Mueller and see what he finds. Peace.
