Russian Probe: If your innocent why pardoning the team?

President Donald J. Trump granted 15 individuals pardons yesterday. This is a clemency from Federal Prosecution and crimes. However, the President doesn’t have powers to circumvent state prosecution or investigations into people. Therefore, the limit is still there.

There is speculation about how these pardons was done… but most likely he traded the cards with several of donors and gave way to some, as they are his team and he doesn’t want them to rat him out after his time in office.

However, when your pardoning people like George Papadopoulos and Alexander Van Der Zwaan. These are not the most prolific people in the Trump Campaign Team of 2016. These was implicated in the collusion with Russia. The supposed “hoax” the President that has called it. Dismissed the Special Counsel Robert Mueller and the whole investigation. Where the President have blocked all witnesses and Congress investigation into it. They have made it impossible to dig into the truth.

These two was part of the Trump Team and they lied, they obstructed justice and the Trump Campaign even said their works was unimportant at one time. I remember Papadopoulos was called a “coffee boy” and a man serving coffee shouldn’t need a pardon. He should instead get some cream to make the coffee tolerable for more people.

So, if these people was innocent. Then they wouldn’t need to get pardoned, but appeal their cases and get it thrown out of courts. Just like all the election petitions in 2020. The Trump Campaign only shows that the US is broken system. Where the crooks can work together and if one of them get into office. The man in-charge can bail them out of the legal jeopardy they got into.

That these two are getting off the hook. Just shows what Trump intends to do. He has already helped his long term ally Roger Stone. There will be others who gets the help of the President. Especially now in the final days of his reign. This man will give clemency to the ones who was loyal to him. We can expect others being picked out and getting pardons. This being Paul Manafort or several others who was indicted. The man has already saved Gen. Michael Flynn. So, there is no reason for him to not save the whole gang.

What we can learn from this? Well, that foreign interference and working with foreigners in an election is cool if your Republican and Trump. However, the GOP and Trump Stans will die on this hill. We cannot expect anything else by people who eating the words of Newsmax, OAN and Fox News. Even Qanon is their voices of reason and that is Cult45 all over it. These folks will not care that the American Republic is traded for gold and licenses deals by their dear leader. No, they are following Trump blindly. So, that he worked with Russia to win is fine. The ones who are against communists and the reds, but can get help from Moscow. The ironies are so enriching from the outside.

Presidency of Trump has achieved a lot. There is a lot of damages to cover and fix for the administration. That the Department of Justice have been weaponized and therefore the up-coming investigations needs to be partisan and independent. There is a need see it and what to expect.

Trump clearly is a crony capitalist and a man who easily get corrupted. That is why he needs others to cover-up for him. Trump needs his allies, especially after he lost all his leverage of office. The Donald needs his former team to be on his side. As there are investigations into him and his businesses. He will be in court and these cases will be moved further. His executive privilege will be history. Therefore, he doesn’t need Papadopoulos and Van Der Zwaan has to be on his side. So, they will not tell more on him or expose him more. The man cannot afford that. Well, the man isn’t paying taxes. So, there is not that much he really can afford. The man has everything to loose and that’s why his few allies are bailed out and getting clemency. Though by doing that. He shows that the Trump Campaign was far from innocent. Because, if they needed pardons then they weren’t innocent at all. Peace.

Opinion: If you need a pardon, aren’t you guilty?

There are now reports in the news that President Donald J. Trump plans to pardon his inner-family and the “extended one” as his leaving office in January 2021. These pardons might be given to his sons Eric Trump, Donald Trump Junior and his daughter Ivanka Trump. His also planning to give a pardon to his son-in-law Jared Kushner.

The President has already given the extended powers within his office to former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn. Therefore, he can easily extend to others who has breached federal laws and clauses in office. There is several others that might be on the way. As there was plenty of associates who was a part of Trump Campaign 2016, which has been charged by the state for breaking the law. These could easily get pardons by the President too.

It would be easy to speculate that these gentlement might get a Presidential Pardon: Paul Manafort, Richard Gates, Stephen Bannon, Jeff Sessions, Carter Page, George Papadopolous, Roger Stone, Alexander Van Der Zwaan and Richard Pinedo. Nevertheless, his former personal lawyer who betrayed him. Michael Cohen will not be off the hook. However, the ones who has done his bidding. They might get off the hook and get a Presidential Pardon while he still can. That is anticipated, especially after the pardoning of Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn.  

The big gist here… if these people needs a pardon. Then they are admitting guilt. Flynn already stated that he lied and that he didn’t file as a foreign agent. Lt. Gen. Flynn was getting paid by Turkey and not filing the necessary papers to be officially so. Therefore, he coordinated with a foreign power without informing the state. This is why a man like that shouldn’t become a National Security Advisor for the President in the first place. 

This is why this here shows a pattern and what the Trump Presidency has done. The Office of the President and the White House. A White House that started with “lock her up” is now planning to “pardon my own kin and associates”. That is a real change of guard.

The Presidential Pardon gives clemency from Federal Prosecution, but cannot be invoked for state investigations or local investigations. Meaning, the Southern District of New York and the Attorney General of New York (Manhattan) can still prosecute and indict the Trump family members. All the other state attorneys and law enforcement can investigate the persons in question and charge them eventually for crimes. Therefore, the limitations of the pardon sets a standard for the future. 

However, if the President gives these pardons to his family and inner-circle. The people who are receiving it is initially stating their guilt. That they did some crime(s) and criminal conspiracy of some kind. If they didn’t, why did they need a pardon in the first place?

If you are innocent and has nothing to hide. Then you don’t need a pardon. If your not a criminal or haven’t acted with criminal intent. Then there should be no reason to accept a pardon. Since, there is no reason for you to have it.

This is what should shatter the United States. The Trump Family and associates can go free. The peculiar thing will be how they portray it and the reasoning for accepting it. Since it sends a message that they know what they did and that they hope they can get away from possible prosecution.

A pardon is something you need if you have done the deed. If you need the clemency from a criminal charge, then your by default a felon. Which is lucky to be saved by the mercy of the ones offering the pardon and cleaning your criminal record. However, if you don’t have done a crime and haven’t had criminal intent. There shouldn’t be a need for one….

So, by default by giving this to his family and associates. It is a token and showing the world how they operated. Since, they all need a pardon to save themselves. A guilty plea by direct action of accepting the pardon. Initially stating their guilt for the world to see. 

The ironic part is that the Presidential Pardon might not even save them. As the family members and associates might have to answer for crimes on the state level. This shows that there is little to gain here other than proving guilt by association. Peace.

All the President’s Men: Flynn & Stone “Get-Out-Of-Jail-Free-Card”

I know that the President isn’t the Monopoly Man, but his dealing out “Get-Out-Jail-Free-Card” like him in real life. There is no indication that rule of law matters, neither is the ideal of everyone is equal before the law. The United States of America is a broken, failure of a state. Where voting purge, where police brutality and identity politics are ordinary features.

This compelled with the compromised Department of Justice. Which is a weaponized tool of the White House. Instead of being an independent organization respecting and enforcing the codes of law. That is dream and not the reality in Trump’s America.

That is why the Department of Justice and Attorney General William Barr is willing to trade all honesty, all equal treatment and enforcing it accordingly to protocol. We are seeing that…

That train has left and there is apparently no return of it in sight. The President and his Attorney General is blatant in disregard to the rule of law and enforcing towards their own. This being people who has pleaded guilty, been unregistered foreign agents and so fourth. They are apparently allowed to solicit information during campaigns with foreign actors, which they later lied about meeting. It doesn’t matter where it is from, but the conspiracy to do so for the benefit of a candidate. Should be a thing that is illegal and treated that way. However, since these people did it for the current day President. They can get off the hook.

This is okay, that they are conspiring with foreign powers and using that information to beat their opposition. As later investigation see they are lying to congress and to the Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI). If a random bloke from any Ville or Port would do this. Then they would linger in jail like Reality Winner and other leakers. Whistleblowers are prosecuted and arraigned in court.

Stone is getting a pleasant amount of time behind bars for his relationship with the President. The same can be said about Flynn. We can rest assure that the other ones whose associated with the President will get help or a get out of jail free-card. Maybe not Michael Cohen, his former personal lawyer, but expect others to suddenly get out of the penitentiary like Paul Manafort.

The Republican’s can lie to themselves. They can cheat themselves and claim to be the party of rule of law. However, its hard to sell: when you give people who conspired against the state freedom. That is basic … very simple to understand and should be common sense. This is giving immunity to people by giving grace, freedom and extended liberty to the ones who is connected to the President. They can steal, graft and conspire against the state. This they can do for the simple reason: They are buddies and friends of the President.

This are the legal precedence of the United States. The US can never tell dictators that they cannot shield their graft or their criminal friends. For the same reason as the US is now shielding the friends of the President. The US is now allowing illegal activity being done by associates of the President. They got a special number at the Department of Justice. The Trump Administration is directing the Department to them favours. That is really the sickening state of the US.

This is what tyrants and dictators do. They are allowing associates eat, rule with impunity and get away with it. That’s for the same as the associates of Trump. If you know, now you know. The ones showing loyalty to the President. Can get a better treatment and less of stint in jail. That is how corrupt the President is and to what extent he goes. He makes dictators proud for his actions. Since he acts just like they would. However, if they did the same. The US would condemn and even sanction them. Nevertheless, the US will not get any retorts for acting like this. Peace.

Opinion: If Bolton is a traitor, what is His Excellency?

I have never liked John Bolton. No matter what administration in the United States he has served. He has been a war-hawk and someone who intend to bomb other republic’s to oblivion. Because he can and because the US has the military power to do so. Bolton is not a noble man, but his not a traitor, even if Secretary of State Michael Pompeo call him that. He just issued dirty laundry in his newest book and it has hit the pride of the White House.

I find it really interesting that an administration where the Head of State is always asking for electoral interference and help to win from foreign forces is calling someone a traitor. I thought the treacherous to have foreign powers to interfere in elections and state affairs. That is what the President has done plenty of times now and he was even impeached for one instance. Another one was the investigation of it with a Special Counsel to look into it.

The book of Bolton proves there is a third party where the President has asked for help to dig up dirt and make issues for the opposition candidate Joe Biden. He has now worked with Russians, Ukrainians and now the Chinese. Soon, he will do another call Putin to get WikiLeaks and Guccifer back online to drop intelligence on the DNC again. Since that is what he do and get away with it.

President Trump and Pompeo can call out names, but its their pride that Bolton aired out his thoughts, his stories and his time in office. Just as its campaign season ahead of the November elections. Its weakening him and making him look even more fragile, than when he went into bunker during demonstrations.

Trump cannot deem Bolton as traitor, because there is no proof and no charges put on him. Not like with his personal lawyer, campaign manager and who else of his associates that been hit by the legal system since he took office.

The White House should be a bit more careful. There been enough secret meetings and revelation of sketchy behaviour, which is done in secret and revealed during investigations. That’s why even the proud Penguin aka Roger Stone was also charged. There been so many in and around the President that has gotten into legal jeopardy. So with that knowledge, even having a foreign agent not registered working directly with a foreign actors without telling. That being Michael Flynn who was at one point National Security Advisor. Also questionable meetings with the incoming Attorney General Senator Jeff Sessions, who held secret meetings with Russian ambassador. It so many instances where associates, people in-connection with President has held talks and solicited intelligence from foreign powers. That should be put into question of treachery.

With the knowledge of that and the history of this administration. They should be careful to pin anyone else as treacherous. As they themselves are having no issues or quarrels asking Russians, Ukrainians and Chinese to help them out. I am sure the President would ask help from Turkey and others too, if they had any suction. Because that is the sort of man he is. He can be a villain and act in a manner, which could be deemed as treacherous. However, he gets away with it for the simple reason. There are too many scandals to follow one after the other.

The President and his Secretary of State should do this to Bolton. Unless, they want to take accountability for their own actions. If they want to be transparent about how they have used all channels to get information and help with the elections. If all information of that came out. It would be a shit-storm, because the investigations into it has only skimmed the surface. That’s for the reason of blocking information and shielding release of documents, call-logs and transcripts. The secrecy proves there are more than what this administration wants the world to know.

I got nothing good to say about Bolton. His times in office is of a creep and a war-hawk. I’m not the kind of person that wants those sort of men in office. However, I am not the man who appointed and gave him an office. That is what the President did, just like he gave and appointed other questionable individuals to his cabinet as well. Therefore, he should more careful and maybe even vet them better. We all know that wouldn’t happen, because then his corrupt cronies wouldn’t get a place.

This President and his team better act wiser. Not to throw around the allegation of treason, as he has acted upon that and request things that could be deemed fit for that himself. That’s why its a double standard in this regard. Enough nonsense. Peace.

Opinion: Freeing Lt. Gen. Flynn is injustice

Today, there is news of dropping charges on former Trump advisor and National Security Advisor Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn. He was an illegal foreign agent for Turkey, lied about his meetings with Russian agents and connections to the Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI). Therefore, the prolonged case and change of stance is now bearing fruits.

As the Trump Administration has its third Attorney General William Barr and his willing to be water-boy of the President instead of being an independent judiciary. Whose now serving the President’s will blindly.

To free Michael Flynn would be something dictators do to free their men from the tolls of the law. Especially, since he was serving as the part of the Trump Campaign and Trump Transitional Team before becoming the National Security Advisor. All of that was happening while he was doing shady back-door communication with both Turkey and Russia. Something he pleaded guilty to the Special Counsel Robert Mueller in November 2017.

So, its not like he haven’t already pleaded guilty to the crime of being an foreign agent without registration. Also, the statement of the Offense from 30th November 2017 says it all. However, AG Barr doesn’t seem to care. That people are willing to risk selling out information to Russian ambassadors and such. Not caring that Flynn was working for Turkey in the US. That is what this is signalling. As the US is supposed to go to the poll in November 2020.

This shows contempt of the law. Another proof that the Republican Party and President Trump doesn’t value rule of law. The law is only for their enemies and not for them. The law is only a tool for immigrants, but not for the ones whose made men like Flynn.

We are seeing the standard and the way they operate. The man was going to sentencing, but has been postpone for about two years now. They are now dropping the charges. While he was a man who broke the law, who did it knowingly and a man who served as a high ranking official.

That sort of man is dangerous and still he will be freed to the streets. A petty thief would linger in jail, heck a slinger of crack be decomposed in the pen. While this man who betrayed the Republic will walk free. That shows the merits of America under Trump or to correct it. The value of rule of law in Trump’s White AmeriKKKa. Because, this is who they are and what they will do.

Expect something to happen with Manafort and all the other cohorts whose already in jail. When they can touch Flynn who pleaded guilty. They can find ways to fix the others too. It is just a matter of time. Rule of law and justice is only a mirage for these folks. The codes of laws are only for the common man, not for the made ones. Peace.

Trump-Ukraine: Articles of Impeachment and will the Senate backstab the President?

There was just a matter of time, as the House of Representatives and the majority Committees would collectively go together and make a resolution to vote over the Impeachment of President Donald J. Trump. This after his own actions in office, as the Head of State and the Executive of State.

He is trying to deflect the facts and call it names, but reality is this. The President tried together with all of his handlers to get dirt and shade his political opponent Joe Biden, by making a fraudulent agreement with Ukrainian counterparts and if it didn’t get followed the military aid didn’t come their way.

The Articles against the President is very simple, but straight to the fact. That the President did misuse power or abuse it. He tried to get a foreign power to interfere in the elections of 2020. To investigate the son of Biden. That is what the President did. That is abuse of power and misuse of power in office, using the aid of the state to get a favourable case abroad.

The Second article is the obstruction of Congress. Which at this point is fact. As his administration haven’t answered any of the subpoenas nor calls to testify of people associated with President. Even the ones who been fired has not testified. Family members of the President has also declined to answer the subpoenas and answer the committees.

That has been done by withholding documents or production of it. Defying all subpoenas and refused to produce a single document or record. Directing the Executive Branch not to cooperate nor defying to testify. There are nine persons who have not cooperated from the Executive Branch alone.

While the President has decided that he should decide the scope, the levels of inquire and ability to investigate him. That he has the “executive privilege” and the “sole Power of Impeachment”. With the stopping of documents, lack of cooperation is all a proof the obstruction of justice. As the Congress couldn’t prevail or even manage to get everything. Since, the Executive Branch has been so reluctant to do their duty.

Trump has clearly not followed the memo or should we at this point call his Constitutional rights as a citizen and as a President. He has done whatever he can shelve and stop the Congress from questioning him and his team. While having yes men, whose also involved in the shady business of the President, the likes of Devin Nunes. Who just have an ability to be with the characters of the Executive Branch and ilk who deter to breach the law. That is why the President needs to be tried and answer for his action.

There are several around Rudy Giuliani the attorney of the President whose entangled and in trouble over the same Ukraine Scandal. Which is showing the remorse and the reality on the ground. As the White House is spreading all sort of fiction to pass. Hoping all these conspiracy theories will stick.

While this will most likely pass in the House of Representatives, it will be blocked and silenced in the Senate. As the Republicans cannot go against their master, the likes of Lindsay Graham is unbound in his loyalty to the kingpin on top. His whole fate and life depends on the Donald. That is how it seems.

We will see if the crook will win or not. The House have done their part. They have been able, even in the hardest of hurdles to make a report. To prove what Trump in regards to Ukraine. Now it is just a matter of time. What results it will give and how it will sway the public opinion.

The articles are well-crafted, just like the majority report shows the intent and the essence of the whole ordeal. It is just is if the Senate will betray the Constitution or if they will stab Donald in the back. Which I doubt, because at this point. None of the GOP or Republican Senators seems interested in walking over trouble waters without kissing the ring of Trump. Peace.
