Russian Probe: Attorney General William Barr letter on the Special Counsel Mueller Report to the Judiciary Committee Chairmen Sen. Graham & Rep. Nadler (29.03.2019)

The Mueller Report is out: What gives?

Whatever you see you gotta keep a sense of humor; you gotta be able to smile through all the bullshit.”Tupac Shakur

Well, first thing first, the Special Counsel Robert Mueller Investigatory Report into Collusion, Obstruction of Justice and Electoral Malpractice is still in the limbo. Even if the third Attorney General under President Donald J. Trump, AG William Barr released a letter yesterday, out-lining what he saw fit. We don’t know the full extent of this investigation, neither the results or the proper findings of. Just mere coincidental information, that the AG saw purposeful to produce.

Therefore, at this mere junction in time. We don’t know how much information, what sort of intelligence or outreach the Trump Administration, the Trump Transition Team nor the Trump Campaign Team did with the Russians. Neither, what sort of connections and deals been made in the lurking shadows of the businesses, that the current day President has. Even the Trump Tower Moscow, the connection to Felix Sater Bayrock Group LLC and all the other shady agreements the Trump Organization have done over the years. Because, surely there is plenty and that’s why the President never released his tax-returns to the public.

With all this in mind, with all the indictments, all the counts of crimes put on individuals connected to Trump World. Still, the Presidency and the GOP claims that the President is vindicated. That is happening before the people have read the hard-copy of the Report, nor seen the pages or the exhibits connected to the passages in the Report. It is like black-magic, like a spell put on these gentlemen. To have all the answers without reading the whole paper.

When, in knowledge of what is already out there of information on the matter. With the loans, the pay-offs, the sudden swift changes of hacked emails and close proxies of the Trump Campaign. As they needed some juicy intel on Clinton to make him look like the golden goose. When he really wasn’t and his own people was in connection with Russian counterparts, which they never testified to do or even dared to clear before entering into office. If this was Michael Cohen, George Papadapolous, Michael Flynn, Jared Kushner, Donald Trump Junior, Jeff Sessions or Paul Manafort. None of this disclosed this before taking part or being a part of the campaign. Therefore, they are already indicating something wasn’t right with their operation. Still, the GOP and President claims, that everything is cool and dandy. Like nothing happen.

We can see a pattern, we can see the narratives and there are reasons to question it all. As the Trump Campaign and the Trump Administration acts like it has done on this. All along claimed innocence, but brutally assaulted others whose been in similar business. The Trump presidency have attacked Clinton and Obama, but not seen what they do themselves. They have claimed unsecure emails, but Kushner, Ivanka Trump and the President has used unsecured cellphones, private email servers and the President have even disclosed secrets within the bounds of the White House directly to Russian State Officials. That is how blatant disregard the President have for rule of law and following protocol. Because, no law and no justice system have ever touched him, he has always gotten away.

Even now, he thinks he can dig the report into dirt and hope people forget about it. That they forget about all the implicated people, all the detained and indicted people in his close circle. The ones that has shared time and space with him. That he has done business with and also conducted campaign planning with. This is the President of United States, ladies an Gentlemen.

We have to see the reported, unsealed and released to the Public. So, the public and the law-enforcement can act upon the crimes and alleged crimes committed. Not, just hearsay from a Trump Crony.

It is time to reveal it and unleash it on the world. Not just a 4 pages letter, which doesn’t say much. Even articles upon articles on this investigation says more, the court documents already produced and the counts of criminal conspiracy combined with the evidence produced. Shows there are more than what the AG said yesterday.

It is to early to be determine, but I’ll be damned if all of this ends like this. It was to damn easy, if this was the end of the two year long investigation. This is modern day Frank Lucas investigation. Time for the white privilege and the President to answer for all possible crimes, from blue-collar to possible conspiracy against the state. Because, that should be the end game, after the all the connections and communications done in secrecy and with intent. This shouldn’t be overshadowed and forgotten. That quick. We shouldn’t accept that. Not today and not tomorrow. Peace.

U.S. House Judiciary Committee starts a Massive Probe into Trump & his associates!

See, ya are what ya are in this world. That’s either one of two things: Either you’re somebody, or you ain’t nobody”.- Frank Lucas

Today is a really special day in Trump World, as the U.S. House Judiciary Committee has sent letters and requested documents into the investigation in President Trump and his associates. No, I am not releasing a list of family and friends of the U.S. President today. No, this is a magnificent list of the ones that has up to 18th March 2019 to deliver documents to the Judiciary Committee of the House of Representatives. So, that they can pursuit their investigation into the possible collusion and electoral violations done by the Trump Administration and Campaign Team. That is why 81 individuals/organizations been hit with this.

This is a rare day, when so many people in and around the President have been hit with the letters and document requests, that digs into the financial contributions, financial ties with Russia, with all communications of such and so on. It is really digging deep.

As the Document Request states:
“Please produce the documents set forth in Schedule A, provided, however, that in order to
facilitate production of documents on an expedited basis, you may limit your production at this time to documents you furnished at any time after November 8, 2016 to: (a) the Special Counsel’s Office established by Department of Justice Order No. 3915-2017 (May 17, 2017); (b) the United States Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York (“SDNY”); (c) any other federal or state regulatory and/or law enforcement agency; (d) any congressional committee; or (e) in civil or other litigation. This includes but is not limited to documents that were voluntarily provided, produced under compulsion, or seized. Instructions for producing documents appear in Schedule B, and definitions appear in Schedule C” (Document Request – Schedule A, 04.03.2019).

The various people and organization get various of different arraigned questions to produce set of documents, depending on their closeness to the President and the known meetings between the Trump Campaign/Organization/Transition and Presidency in regard to the Russians. That is why, today is a real special day. The U.S. House Judiciary Committee are asking for all of this. They are really showing what the Republican Party and the ones henchmen of the President didn’t do before the Mid-Terms, as they shut this down, prematurely out of own interests. One man should be happy he isn’t on the list today and that is Devin Nunes. His only guy missing.

Here is the list of people under investigation by the U.S. House Judiciary Committee:

Alan Garten, Alexander Nix, Allen Weisselberg, American Media Inc, Anatoli Samochornov, Andrew Intrater, Annie Donaldson, Brad Parscale, Brittany Kaiser, Cambridge Analytica, Carter Page, Columbus Nova, Concord Management and Consulting, Corey Lewandowski, David Pecker, Department of Justice, Don McGahn, Donald J Trump Revocable Trust, Donald Trump Jr., Dylan Howard, Eric Trump, Erik Prince, Federal Bureau of Investigation, Felix Sater, Flynn Intel Group, General Services Administration, George Nader, George Papadopoulos, Hope Hicks, Irakly Kaveladze, Jared Kushner, Jason Maloni, Jay Sekulow, Jeff Sessions, Jerome Corsi, John Szobocsan, Julian Assange, Julian David Wheatland, Keith Davidson, KT McFarland, Mark Corallo, Matt Tait, Matthew Calamari, Michael Caputo, Michael Cohen, Michael Flynn, Michael Flynn Jr, Paul Erickson, Paul Manafort, Peter Smith (Estate), Randy Credico, Reince Priebus, Rhona Graff, Rinat Akhmetshin, Rob Goldstone, Roger Stone, Ronald Lieberman, Sam Nunberg, SCL Group Limited, Sean Spicer, Sheri Dillon, Stefan Passantino, Steve Bannon, Ted Malloch, The White House, Trump Campaign, Trump Foundation, Trump Organization, Trump Transition, Viktor Vekselberg, Wikileaks, 58th Presidential Inaugural Committee, Christopher Bancroft Burnham, Frontier Services Group, J.D. Gordon, Kushner Companies, NRA, Rick Gates, Tom Barrack, Tom Bossert and Tony Fabrizio.

All of them are implicated or has information on the matter at hand. The FBI, DoJ and other government organizations are just to facilitate the investigation as they have various connected investigations going on through the Special Counsel Robert Mueller and the case in Southern District of New York (SDNY). However, that will not stop the U.S. House Judiciary from gathering intelligence and information about the possible obstruction of justice, Russian interference and so-on.

They are really starting a massive probe, that will span and really gather information at a level, the Presidency and his associates didn’t envision at this point. All of this people have to follow the guidelines and produce it. Therefore, the coming weeks will be interesting, as also to see if they all are interesting in complying and following the guidelines.

Because, the Committee and the U.S. Representatives will be awaiting answers. The public will see, if they are complying or stalling for time. Since, this is the start of a serious probe, where the Judiciary Committee have already gathered information, but wants more. As it was to dig deep into the organizations and people around Trump. To ensure the state have good actors and also people who are following the codes of conduct, not to talk about following the rules of law.

It is not a good day to be Gangster in Government. Since, the NY Gang is really under scrutiny now and the world is watching. With anticipation, with what they will do with the Trump associates and in the President Trump himself. As the people around are getting indicted and catching felony charges. Falling like flies and now, yet another broad probe is hitting the NY Gang. Surely, they cannot catch a break. Peace.

Opinion: The Cohen Testimony proves that the GOP will shield Trump at any cost!

The ultimate result of shielding men from the effects of folly is to fill the world with fools.”Herbert Spencer

The Michael Cohen testimony today to the Congress is only proving one vital thing. That the Republican Party and the Republican National Congress (RNC) will do whatever to defend him and to make Cohen look like a villain on his own. That the man who was working for the President for 10 years. He knew the President and was his personal attorney.

Cohen surely knows the secret behind the scenes deals made by the Trump Organization and the Trump Campaign, as he even was the Vice-Chair of Financial Committee of the RNC. Therefore, what the GOP is doing today is shielding the President at any cost.

There are no hard-hitting questions from the GOP. The GOP is only using bait-lines for the Breitbart, Fox News and even InfoWars. That is what the GOP have become, they are not trying to dig into what Cohen knows. Which is weird, seeing how the GOP used hours upon hours putting Hillary Clinton under fire and questioning her. That for selective committee hearing and checking her actions in the past as Secretary or State and elsewhere. Therefore, the acts of the GOP is really foolish.

If the GOP thinks this is wise, they are playing the short-con. They are accepting the crimes of the possible President. They are not looking into the information that Cohen has on Trump or any of his associates. Even as they are afraid of the reality to hit the fan or getting to deep. Because, that make their base smile and giddy. But they are not the party of patriots and neither of loyalty to the Republic.

Everything Cohen has does is now put under fire and that is natural. Not because he is a felon, but because his paper trail and his documents are now evidence under investigations under the Southern District of New York and also by the Special Counsel. Therefore, this can also shed light on what Trump has done and not in concern of “catch and release” stories, also the the trade deals with the Moscow Tower and other connections to Kremlin. As today, there even stated that Trump had Russian Mobster Felix Sater on his own floor of the Trump Tower. Even having the office, which Cohen used to have. Therefore, it is interesting that the law and order party of the GOP has nothing to say about that.

That is because they are shielding their President by any means. This is what we have learned today. Instead of finding the truth, seeking the truth or even ask the hard questions, they are on a own duck-hunt. They are playing Nintendo with the public and hoping they won’t catch their game. They have used their time and this hearing for something useful. To gain interesting information, but then they would possibly hurt their President. However, that doesn’t matter to them. That they would only do, if there was a Bill Clinton or a Democratic Party elected one. They would never dare to cross and show true honour.

Instead, they are letting this go. Wasting time and playing the short-con. They are not gaining new information or even showing some effort for an investigation. Because the GOP have a heart in it, when they can do it to the other party, apparently. But not when its about their own. They just have to blind sheep following their leader and use the same rhetoric.

It is weak tea, really, really weak tea. Peace.

Russian Probe: Interesting revelations from the Court documents on Manafort and Gates!

Left: Richard Gates
Right: Paul Manafort
In Center: Donald and Ivanka Trump

Well, the counts of criminal activity of these two gentlemen has now been known for a while, as the Special Counsel Robert Mueller have been investigating. Therefore, the revelations there of the money laundering done by Paul Manafort and Richard Gates is known. It is already established how they transferred funds from foreign accounts and laundered them through accounts in Cyprus and elsewhere. That was part of livelihood.

However, there was other more striking revelations in the Sentencing documents released this weekend or Friday. As it showed certain aspects of what the Special Counsel and their investigation believes, as they have collected statements, affidavits and evidence of conspiracy against the United States, misuse of the Foreign Agent Operations and others, that puts the former Campaign Manager and also close associate of President Trump into hot water.

We know that Manafort will struggle to defend himself in Court, as the government has successfully found evidence of the crimes committed, the counts of crimes and possible jail-time will be long. As the government have a striking assessment of the former political lobbyist, which they describes like this:

Based on his relevant sentencing conduct, Manafort presents many aggravating sentencing factors and no warranted mitigating factors. Manafort committed an array of felonies for over a decade, up through the fall of 2018. Manafort chose repeatedly and knowingly to violate the law— whether the laws proscribed garden-variety crimes such as tax fraud, money laundering, obstruction of justice, and bank fraud, or more esoteric laws that he nevertheless was intimately familiar with, such as the Foreign Agents Registration Act (FARA). His criminal actions were bold, some of which were committed while under a spotlight due to his work as the campaign chairman and, later, while he was on bail from this Court” (Manafort Sentencing Memo, 22.02.2019).

What Manafort can anticipate is to spend lots of time in jail, as he has already been sentenced in another case and therefore, this one will pile up that one. His comrade in crimes, Gates, also had a released Sentencing Memo this weekend, as they both was partners. The vital information and plea deal, which Gates has followed. Would surely help the government also ease the sentences for Gates. If he was sentenced straight without a deal, he could spend up to 28 years in prison, but he made a plea deal and with that his estimated time is now between 57 months and 71 months. Which by all means are more favourable, than three decades behind bars for his actions.

However, what is striking in the Memo was this:

“In furtherance of the scheme, from 2006 until 2014, both dates being approximate and inclusive, Manafort and GATES engaged in a multi-million dollar lobbying campaign in the United States at the direction of Yanukovych, the Party of Regions, and the Government of Ukraine. Manafort and GATES did so without registering and providing the disclosures required by law” (Richard Gates Plea Agreement, 22.02.2019).

All of this proves how the associates close to the United States President operated. How they willingly did illegal and also was connected with foreign agents to change policies locally, without proper registration, while earning wealth on the illegal activity. They were not following the laws, while lobbying and also using schemes to the amount of $75 Million USD during the years. This shows to what extent the two partners did contact the Ukrainian and working for them.

With the knowledge that Yanukoych was the Ukrainian Puppet of Vladimir Putin. There is some connections there and also in the realm of Manafort. Which means even more for the collusion and proof of that at a later stage. Because the Manafort-Gates Operations for Kiev was most defninitly done on the mercy of Kremlin and the comrades there. That is just how they do, to control their sphere and who better to change a paradigm shift. Than having old political operatives to work for a better relations and make the regime looking nice then them. Right?

We can wonder if there will come up more or if the bullets, where things connects to the Individual One will be in reference in the unpublished report of the Special Counsel, but these sentences documents are showing the intent and also the long-term conspiracy, where they did illegal activity over a long time. Where both parties was willingly doing it and deliberate about it. No question about it, and it was profitable too!

That is all we need to know. Surely, Manafort and Gates will answer for this, but Gates gets off the hook for following up on his plea deal. Manafort on the other hand get into bigger issues, as he will answer for what he did do. Plus the counts his already sentenced to in another case. Therefore, Manafort is going to prison. It is just a matter of time. There are more the associates around Trump, that is one the way, this being Roger Stone, whose also implicated and even mentioned in the Court in the Documents of Manafort, as they are associates going back to the 1980s.

Therefore, the ones in the circle around the President is all getting closer, than comfort to Law Enforce. But that was their decision in the first place. When they violated the laws, while being involved in the politics and within the reach of power. Sooner or later, someone would get caught. Now it was them. Peace.
