Trump accuses NY Times of ‘virtual treason’…


President Trump is accusing the New York Times of treason because the Leftist rag told the world about a classified U.S. mission to mess with Russia undoubtedly due Russian cyber warfare being conducted against the United States. The most public of which is cyber meddling in U.S. election cycles.

 

I would not be surprised to find out some day the USA and Russia have been exchanging cyber barbs for quite some time. Is it ethical or even legal for the NYT to expose clandestine and probably Classified cyber missions intended as bloodless reprisals to Russian cyber-crimes? It’s definitely not ethical! If exposing Classified actions against a foreign enemy isn’t illegal, IT SHOULD BE!

Trump accuses NY Times of ‘virtual treason’ after report exposing U.S. cyber-targeting of Russian infrastructure: He’s right

 

By Jon Dougherty

June 16, 2019

The National Sentinel

 

NYT Building

 

(NationalSentinel) We have made the observation before that in the age of Donald Trump, the establishment media has become a national security liability due to the fact that major outlets will publish just about anything in order to undermine him.

 

But in doing so, these same outlets also undermine our country — and some 312 million American citizens — making them as big a threat to our security as any foreign power.

 

The New York Times did it again Sunday with a story claiming that the Trump administration has escalated attacks on Russia’s power grid:

 

The United States is stepping up digital incursions into Russia’s electric power grid in a warning to President Vladimir V. Putin and a demonstration of how the Trump administration is using new authorities to deploy cybertools more aggressively, current and former government officials said.

 

In interviews over the past three months, the officials described the previously unreported deployment of American computer code inside Russia’s grid and other targets as a classified companion to more publicly discussed action directed at Moscow’s disinformation and hacking units around the 2018 midterm elections.

 

Advocates of the more aggressive strategy said it was long overdue, after years of public warnings from the Department of Homeland Security and the F.B.I. that Russia has inserted malware that could sabotage American power plants, oil and gas pipelines, or water supplies in any future conflict with the United States.

 

But it also carries significant risk of escalating the daily digital Cold War between Washington and Moscow.

 

“It has gotten far, far more aggressive over the past year,” one senior intelligence official told the Times. “We are doing things at a scale that we never contemplated a few years ago.”

 

You know what else carries “significant risk?” Reporting classified information that provides valuable insight and intelligence for a nuclear-armed adversary.

 

So much for “Russia collusion,” right?

 

The revelations infuriated POTUS Trump, and rightfully so. He said on Twitter the paper committed “a virtual act of Treason” over its report, The Hill noted.

 

“Do you believe that the Failing New York Times just did a story stating that the United States is substantially increasing Cyber Attacks on Russia,” Trump tweeted. “This is a virtual act of Treason by a once great paper so desperate for a story, any story, even if bad for our Country.”

 

“Anything goes with our Corrupt News Media today,” he added. “They will do, or say, whatever it takes, with not even the slightest thought of consequence! These are true cowards and without doubt, THE ENEMY OF THE PEOPLE!”

 

He also claimed the Times report was “NOT TRUE.”

 

The fact is the Times report most likely is true. Rational people understand that in light of report after report regarding Russia/China/Iran/North Korea targeting U.S. infrastructure, it makes sense for America — which is a cyber superpower — to respond in kind.

 

But these kinds of operations are not meant to be revealed. Doing so not only compromises said operations, but foreign intelligence agencies gleaning details from published open source information very often learn things that help them counter our moves.

 

Which, again, puts our country at risk.

 

The Times editors know this. They understand full well what revealing this kind of highly classified information can mean to an adversary.

 

And yet, they published it anyway. Just to ‘get Donald Trump.’

 

What does that say about them? It says — again — that the president has been right about our own press since he took office: They are more of an enemy than some of our adversaries. Or at least the equivalent.

 

Even though we have speech protections written into our Constitution via the First Amendment, you still can’t slander someone, libel them, yell ‘fire’ in a theater, or engage in various forms of “hate” speech.

 

Publishing highly classified information that provides ‘aid and comfort’ to an adversary should be legally actionable as well. Doing so harms our country by weakening our national security.

 

Think about it: Does anyone believe that FDR would not have punished the NYTimes or the Washington Post if either paper had published plans for the D-Day invasion, just because their editors believed Americans ‘had a right to know’?

 

Granted, we were in an actual war then, and we’re not fighting Russia — now. Though you could argue that in places like Syria, where Russian-sponsored mercenaries from the Wagner Group attacked U.S. forces and their allies early last year, amounts to a real conflict. Or Russia putting forces into Venezuela, in our hemisphere. Or encroaching on NATO’s eastern flank.

 

We have argued before that reporting the details about these highly classified operations are harming our national security at a time when the world is more dangerous than ever, not less, and for no good reason. The Times is just as guilty, in our view, as the U.S. officials who leaked the information. If they can be charged under the Espionage Act, then the ‘paper of record’ that published the information should be equally culpable.

 

The president is right.

Mueller/Dem Horse-Pucky


John R. Houk

© May 30, 2019

 

I was not surprised Dems – especially in the House – reacted to Robert Mueller’s news conference with “impeach Trump”. The Dems and their propaganda MSM wing have twisted, misrepresented facts and downright lied about President Trump before, after and right up to the very present.

 

Mueller was forced to admit there was no crime of Donald Trump working with the Russians to insure a 2016 election victory. Mueller did inform what everyone has known for a long time – the Russians made an evil effort to influence the 2016 election cycle. MUELLER’S EPIC FAILURE of what is probably closer to the truth: The Russians gave aid to the Clinton campaign to influence the election and aid to the Dems to make the effort to impeach President Trump after the election.

 

Trump committed NO election crime but because the President wouldn’t fall for the perjury trap set for others involved in the 2016 campaign with a personal interview, Mueller implied Trump made an effort to obstruct an investigation where no crime existed.

 

AND THAT MY FRIENDS is why Mueller, Mueller’s 13 angry Dem/Hillary donating Prosecutors AND the Dems are full of horse-pucky.

 

Since it is doubtful most news sources – spoken or written – will let you know about Mueller/Dem horse-pucky, here are a series of commentaries on the Mueller news conference.

Special Counsel Mueller Gives Final Back Stabbing To Trump In Press Briefing To Help Democrats

 

By Jim Kouri

May 30th, 2019

News With Views

 

Special Counsel Robert Mueller held a special news conference on Wednesday saying he couldn’t reach a conclusion on whether Donald Trump obstructed justice, as he stopped short of delivering a full exoneration of the president. Mueller, using the craftiness of a career lawyer and political operative chose his words to allow Democrats in Congress to continue their deranged pursuit of destroying the President using the criminal justice system and the impeachment process.

 

“If we had had confidence the president clearly did not commit a crime we would have said so,” Mueller said. His briefing — which denied questions from reporters — on the investigation showed he was disappointed in not proving anything against Trump.

“That’s why Mueller left open the obstruction question, something the Democrats are using to harass a President they despise,” said political strategist Mike Barker. “The only good news I heard was Mueller announcing that he was closing his office and resigning from public service,” he added.

 

Mueller sent a clear signal to House Democrats who have demanded his testimony that he won’t provide any information that hasn’t already been made public. “Any testimony from this office would not go beyond this report,” he said.

 

The special counsel also said he found “insufficient evidence to charge a broader conspiracy” on election interference.

 

President Donald Trump’s newly appointed Attorney General, while keeping a relatively low profile in his first days on the job, now appears to have hit the ground running in his investigation of what many are now calling The Trump-Russia Hoax.

 

On Tuesday and Wednesday, the Trump-hating Democrats and news media were taken-aback when they discovered Barr had already begun his probe of the now-famous Hillary Clinton bought and paid for “dirty dossier.”

 

Barr selected U.S. Attorney for Connecticut John Durham to investigate the origins of the Justice Department’s and the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s probe of — and spying on —

the Trump presidential campaign in 2016. The questionable investigation continued into the Trump transition and his early weeks as Commander-in-Chief.

 

John Durham, who is the U.S. Attorney in Connecticut, was appointed by Attorney General Bill Barr. He will examine the FBI’s decision to open a counterintelligence investigation into the actions and motives for interfering in the election and “chasing” members of President Donald Trump’s campaign team using arguably misleading or false evidence to obtain warrants. The now famous “dirty dossier” is based on lies and innuendo provided by a foreign agent, a former British MI6 officer Christopher Steele.

 

Deep State Suspects in Conspiracy to Overthrow an Elected President

 

Robert Mueller is the leader of the Trump ouster who are now trying to defend the Deep State’s control over American politics from Donald Trump’s assault on its tyrannical vision. In the process Mueller also hopes to atone for the firing of his friend and fellow conspirator, James Comey.  Unfortunately many Americans cannot see that this man is not a “pillar of impartiality” as the corrupt media paint him. He is deeply committed to Deep State corruption while impersonating a Republican.

 

Rod Rosenstein is the Deputy Attorney General appointed by Obama. This is one reason for his insistence on appointing Robert Mueller as a Special Counsel to investigate Trump for alleged collusion with the Russians. His agenda is preservation of the Deep State as is Mueller’s. He would have been much happier if Hillary had won. In fact he was surely expecting it, as were FBI personnel such as Andrew McCabe.

 

Andrew Weissmann is the primary “witch hunter” on the Mueller team assembled to investigate Russian collusion. He is a notorious pit bull prosecutor with a record of suppressing exculpatory evidence in overreaching prosecutions that have been overturned by judges. He was a “Gung-Ho” Obama supporter. He is known to use questionable tactics in bullying a target’s underlings to force their testimony.

 

Peter Strzok was another Obama-loving FBI agent employed by Mueller because of his experience in counterintelligence. He is known as a devout Hillary Clinton supporter and one of the agents who interviewed Hillary about the email scandal, which turned out to be a phony powder-puff interview. He also edited Comey’s Clinton investigation resolution by replacing the words “grossly negligent” with “extremely careless” because the former action can be prosecuted in the handling of classified information while the latter cannot. His investigation gave almost all of Clinton’s subordinates blanket immunity even though none of them testified against Clinton.

 

Is this, as the media claims, a professional and objective team of crimefighters committed to solving an alleged crime? or was this is a coup d’etat to destroy the election of Donald Trump and and move to impeach him, which Mueller and his cronies had hoped would discredit the “people’s revolution” against the Deep State that Trump has fashioned.

 

“This horrendous nightmare is taking place because of the collectivist corruption of the DOJ and the FBI under Obama, Clinton and the two Bushes. Corruption in practice takes place in men’s institutions only after corruption of ethics and ideology takes place in their minds. Moral relativism (along with political collectivism) took over the minds of our professors, politicians and prosecutors in the aftermath of World War II and exploded throughout our culture from the 1960s to today. The chickens are now coming home to roost and usher in an authoritarian society,” said Jeffrey Longeran, a former criminal/civil investigations manager.

 

Conservatives in Congress should show they have spines and they should counterattack Hillary Clinton a[t] the Deep State with an investigation of the egregious “Uranium One” money grab in which she authorized the sale of 20% of America’s uranium to Russia, which brought tens of millions of dollars into the Clinton Foundation from Russian sources.

 

The fingerprints of Mueller, Weissmann and Rosenstein are also on the Uranium One deal, for they worked assiduously to facilitate and protect its completion, knowing full well but not caring that it compromised American security. Because their stalwart political horse, Hillary Clinton, was benefiting. Thus the Deep State’s aggrandizement was benefiting.

 

“This scenario is unbelievable. The Mueller Probe corruption is something we would expect to find in an African or Latin American country, or one of the Nazi Show Trials under judges who took an oath to serve Adolph Hitler in the 1930’s. It is the result of obsessively partisan FBI leaders that have let their ideology and hatred influence their role as policemen.

Mueller: ‘I couldn’t find a Trump-Crime…so it’s Time to Impeach him!’

 

Trump-Barr-Mueller

 

By Sher Zieve 

May 30, 2019

Canada Free Press

 

I have never before witnessed such a sham of a legal system or—even worse—experienced the horror that the real criminals were the ones running it.  The additional horror is that other gangsters have and/or are replacing those who have been fired (some likely awaiting the day when they will be arrested) or have run for the proverbial hills upon realizing what may soon be revealed.  Having personally experienced this lifetime for not quite—but getting closer each day—a century, I do have some small perspective with regards to history.  Mueller—with all of the Trump-haters on his staff—could find that President Trump committed no crime.  So, in his own rather sleazy way, he turned it over to Congress to impeach him.  This is the caliber of human being we currently have in upper management within the bowels of the US government.

 

I, and certainly others, have written about Robert Swan Mueller III and his apparent crimes committed over the years under the color of law.  One of these was sending 4 innocent people to prison, in order to protect the murderer Whitey Bulger who had been designated “an informer” to and for Mueller’s FBI.  Mueller had also interviewed with President Trump to get his old job as FBI Director back.  But, President Trump didn’t choose him.  Uh-oh!  However, Mueller was chosen by Assistant Attorney General Rod Rosenstein as “Special Counsel” to head up the investigation of President Trump; whom he at the very least intensely disliked.

 

To briefly recap, this investigation was built upon a foundation of sand which included the following:

 

  • A self-proclaimed Trump-hater and (former?) British MI-6 agent who worked with some Russians to create (out of whole cloth) the now-infamous “Trump Dossier”:

 

  • The Clinton Campaign and DNC funded the “dossier”:  “The DNC and Clinton campaign-funded research continued through the end of October 2016, according to the Post’s report.

 

  • The “dossier” was requested and paid for by the Clinton Campaign.  Excerpt:  “According to the report, lawyer Marc E. Elias, who represented both Clinton’s campaign and the DNC, and his law firm Perkins Coie retained the firm Fusion GPS in April 2016 to investigate any connections, according to the Post. Before then, a still-unknown Republican client funded Fusion GPS’ research during the Republican primaries. Fusion had hired former British intelligence officer Christopher Steele to conduct the research.”

 

  • The Mueller investigation began as a counter-intelligence investigation which metastasized into a full-blown criminal investigation…with NO CRIME mentioned!  As a stated crime is required by law before this type of investigation may begin, Mueller’s investigation…was illegal from its inception.  As a very large side-note “collusion” is still not a crime.

 

  • If there is no underlying crime…there can be no “obstruction of justice!”

 

The crimes which were committed by members within our own governmental agencies (DOJ/FBI, CIA, NSA etc.) are the greatest uncovered in the history of our country and are vast to the point that the uncovering of the worldwide Deep State conspiracy against POTUS Trump continues.  Note:  Within the UK, it appears to reach the very highest levels of government.

 

IMO, Mueller has been a dirty cop for decades (also remember his “Uranium One” activities indicating alleged treason) and he doesn’t appear to have any intention of changing.  Our country was close to demise before Donald J. Trump was resoundingly elected to the presidency of the USA.  Considering all of the blocks placed in his way by the DNC, RINOs and US government “intelligence” agencies Trump’s accomplishments are nothing less than remarkable…and legendary.  Think what he will accomplish in his second term of office…

 

“There are six things that the Lord hates, seven that are an abomination to him: haughty eyes, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood, a heart that devises wicked plans, feet that make haste to run to evil, a false witness who breathes out lies, and one who sows discord among brothers”—Proverbs 6:16-19

Judicial Watch President Calls for Investigation Into Mueller

VIDEO: Tom Fitton Discusses Mueller Statement With Lou Dobbs

[Posted by TheDC Shorts

Uploaded on May 29, 2019] 

 

The president of Judicial Watch, Tom Fitton, who investigates government corruption, is calling for an investigation into Robert Mueller.

According to The Daily Caller:

 

Judicial Watch president Tom Fitton called for an investigation into Robert Mueller for suggesting “wrongdoing by an innocent person without any foundation.”

“Well, I don’t know what reputation he had that deserved any credence until now, but it’s no longer there,” Fitton told Dobbs. “He’s really destroyed whatever reputation he’s had with this political attack on the president, turning the rule of law on its head, suggesting the president is guilty and, because he can’t prove otherwise, we should conclude that he should be impeached.”

Calling it “an abuse of power,” Fitton said that Attorney General Barr has been “too deferential” to Mueller and should have “shut down” the “report before it was even written.”

“[I]t’s been abuse piled on top of abuse targeting President Trump,” Fitton said. “And this Mr. Mueller, he needs to be investigated as well. The office of professional responsibility should be asking, ‘Why did this Justice Department prosecutor come out and suggest wrongdoing by an innocent person without any foundation?’ Because there is no foundation. If there was a foundation, there would have been indictments or requests for an indictment while highlighting that. Outrageous.”

 

Fitton claims that there is a strong possibility that Mueller and Comey could have colluded in order to direct the investigation in a negative way against the president.

DERSHOWITZ BLASTS MUELLER FOR ‘EXCEEDING HIS ROLE’

Statement ‘worse’ than Comey’s regarding Hillary scandal

 

May 29, 2019

WND

 

Then-FBI Director Robert Mueller, left, acknowledges applause during then-President Barack Obama’s remarks on June 21, 2013. Obama had announced James Comey, right, as his nominee to succeed Mueller as FBI director (Official White House photo)

 

Special counsel Robert Mueller’s statement Wednesday that “if we had confidence that the president clearly did not commit a crime we would have said that” is worse than then FBI Director James Comey’s statement about the FBI’s probe of Hillary Clinton, said Alan Dershowitz, emeritus professor at Harvard Law School.

 

“Comey was universally criticized for going beyond his responsibility to state whether there was sufficient evidence to indict Clinton,” he wrote Wednesday in The Hill. “Mueller, however, did even more.”

 

Comey declared in a July 2016 press conference that “although we did not find clear evidence that Secretary Clinton or her colleagues intended to violate laws governing the handling of classified information, there is evidence that they were extremely careless in their handling of very sensitive highly classified information.”

 

Dershowitz said Mueller, at his news conference at the Justice Department announcing his resignation as special counsel, “went beyond the conclusion of his report and gave a political gift to Democrats in Congress who are seeking to institute impeachment proceedings against President Trump.”

 

“By implying that President Trump might have committed obstruction of justice, Mueller effectively invited Democrats to institute impeachment proceedings,” he said.

 

Dershowitz noted that obstruction of justice is a “high crime and misdemeanor” which, under the Constitution, authorizes impeachment and removal of the president.

 

WND reported earlier Wednesday Mueller’s claim that the Office of Legal Counsel guidance specifying that a sitting president cannot be indicted was the reason for not coming to a conclusion about obstruction conflicts with Attorney General William Barr’s testimony.

 

Barr told Congress on May 1 that at a March 5 meeting with Mueller, the special counsel told him “that he emphatically was not saying that, but for the OLC opinion, he would have found obstruction.”

 

No longer defending Mueller

 

Dershowitz said he no longer is defending Mueller against the accusations that he is a partisan.

 

“I did not believe that he personally favored either the Democrats or the Republicans, or had a point of view on whether President Trump should be impeached. But I have now changed my mind.”

 

The law professor said Mueller revealed his bias by putting his “elbow” on the scale of justice.

 

Mueller also has distorted the role of a prosecutor who “should never go beyond publicly disclosing that there is insufficient evidence to indict.”

 

“No responsible prosecutor should ever suggest that the subject of his investigation might indeed be guilty even if there was insufficient evidence or other reasons not to indict,” Dershowitz said.

 

He pointed out that federal investigations by prosecutors, including special counsels, are by nature one sided, hearing only evidence of guilt.

 

“They are not in a position to decide whether the subject of the investigation is guilty or is innocent of any crimes.”

Dershowitz said he “cannot imagine a plausible reason why Mueller went beyond his report and gratuitously suggested that President Trump might be guilty, except to help Democrats in Congress and to encourage impeachment talk and action.”

 

“Shame on Mueller for abusing his position of trust and for allowing himself to be used for such partisan advantage,” he wrote.

Mueller Just Proved His Entire Operation Was A Political Hit Job That Trampled The Rule Of Law

At a hastily arranged Wednesday press conference, Special Counsel Robert Mueller proved that he was never interested in justice or the rule of law.

 

Robert Mueller

 

By Sean Davis

May 29, 2019

The Federalist

 

If there were any doubts about Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s political intentions, his unprecedented press conference on Wednesday should put them all to rest. As he made abundantly clear during his doddering reading of a prepared statement that repeatedly contradicted itself, Mueller had no interest in the equal application of the rule of law. He gave the game, and his nakedly political intentions, away repeatedly throughout his statement.

 

“It is important that the office’s written work speak for itself,” Mueller said, referring to his office’s 448-page report. Mueller’s report was released to the public by Attorney General William Barr nearly six weeks ago. The entire report, minus limited redactions required by law, has been publicly available, pored through, and dissected. Its contents have been discussed ad nauseum in print and on television. The report has been speaking for itself since April 18, when it was released.

 

If it’s important for the work to speak for itself, then why did Mueller schedule a press conference in which he would speak for it weeks after it was released? The statement, given the venue in which it was provided, is self-refuting.

 

Let’s start with the Mueller team’s unique take on the nature of a prosecutor’s job. The standard American view of justice, affirmed and enforced by the U.S. Constitution, is that all are presumed innocent absent conviction by a jury of a specific charge of criminal wrongdoing. That is, the natural legal state of an individual in this country is innocence. It is not a state or a nature bestowed by cops or attorneys. Innocence is not granted by unelected bureaucrats or federal prosecutors.

 

At one point in his remarks, Mueller seemed to agree. Referring to indictments against various Russian individuals and institutions for allegedly hacking American servers during the 2016 election, Mueller said that the indictments “contain allegations and we are not commenting on the guilt or innocence of any specific defendant.”

 

“Every defendant is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty.”

 

Had he stopped there, he would have been correct. But then he crafted a brand new standard.

 

“The order appointing the special counsel authorized us to investigate actions that could obstruct the investigation. We conducted that investigation and kept the office of the acting attorney general apprised of our work,” Mueller said. “After that investigation, if we had confidence that the president clearly did not commit a crime, we would have said so.”

 

According to Mueller and his team, charged Russians are presumed innocent. An American president, however, is presumed guilty unless and until Mueller’s team determines he is innocent. Such a standard is an obscene abomination against the rule of law, one that would never be committed by independent attorneys who place a fidelity to their oaths and impartial enforcement of the law ahead of their political motivations.

 

The contradictions and double standards didn’t stop there, though.

 

“It would be unfair to potentially accuse somebody of a crime when there can be no court resolution of the actual charge,” Mueller said, after all but stating that Trump committed a crime for which Mueller never charged him. Just as Mueller’s own words and actions at the Wednesday press conference prove that he didn’t want his team’s report to speak for itself, the report itself proves that Mueller and his team don’t believe it’s unfair to accuse somebody of something a court cannot resolve.

 

If they actually believed that, then the 240-page volume II of their report on their obstruction investigation of the president would never have been authored. After all, according to Mueller’s own statement, such an operation would be patently unfair. And if it’s unfair to air dirty laundry against a target who was never charged, surely it’s doubly unfair to do so in writing and on camera during a press conference whose mere existence refutes the very claims of its host.

 

Mueller revealed himself as little more than a clone of James Comey—the smarmy, scheming politician who replaced Mueller as the head of the FBI. Recall that it was Comey who assumed for himself powers that did not belong to him by law when he declared at a 2016 press conference no “reasonable prosecutor” would charge Hillary Clinton with criminal wrongdoing in her mishandling of classified information and unsanctioned use of a secret, private email server to evade public records laws. Just as Mueller did in his report and Wednesday press conference, Comey followed up his declaration that Hillary would not be charged with statement after statement after statement of all the awful things Hillary Clinton did.

 

“There is evidence of potential violations of the statutes regarding the handling of classified information,” Comey said of Clinton. He excoriated her for repeatedly sending and receiving top secret information on her unsecured server which had never been authorized to process classified information. He even said it was possible, due to her “extreme” carelessness, that hostile foreign actors had penetrated her system and obtained highly classified information about U.S. national security programs.

 

Regardless of how you feel about Clinton, Comey’s display at that press conference was an embarrassment. He did an extreme disservice to the nation and the rule of law by unilaterally declaring himself the primary arbiter of prosecutorial decisions in the federal government when that authority belongs solely to the Department of Justice. And he did an extreme disservice to Clinton herself by dragging her through the mud in such a manner that clearing her name would be impossible.

 

In fact, DOJ guidelines expressly prohibit the actions of both Comey and Mueller in naming and shaming individuals who were never formally charged with any wrongdoing.

 

“As a series of cases makes clear, there is ordinarily ‘no legitimate governmental interest served’ by the government’s public allegation of wrongdoing by an uncharged party, and this is true ‘regardless of what criminal charges may . . . b[e] contemplated by the Assistant United States Attorney against the [third-party] for the future,’” states DOJ’s formal policy manual on the duties of federal prosecutors and principles of federal prosecutions.

 

Nationwide bar rules governing all practicing attorneys in the United States also explicitly prohibit Mueller’s display during Wednesday’s press conference.

 

“The prosecutor in a criminal case shall … refrain from making extrajudicial comments that have a substantial likelihood of heightening public condemnation of the accused,” states Rule 3.8(f) of the American Bar Association’s rules of professional conduct.

 

Multiple federal agents and prosecutors reached out to The Federalist after Mueller’s press conference to express dismay at the former FBI director’s behavior.

 

“I’d have been crucified under this rule for a ‘not innocent’ comment about an uncharged party,” a former federal prosecutor told The Federalist. “I literally cannot fathom holding a press conference to say that an uncharged person was not innocent.”

 

“I wish these former FBI directors would learn their lessons: keep your mouths shut unless you’re referring a case for prosecution,” Jeff Danik, a retired FBI supervisor, said during a phone interview with The Federalist on Wednesday.

 

Mueller’s performance made it clear for all to see that what he ran for the last two years wasn’t an independent investigation pursuant to the rule of law so much as an inquisition motivated by political animus. Mueller and his team refused to charge prominent Democrats for crimes he charged against Republicans. Paul Manafort was charged with unregistered lobbying for foreign governments, while Mueller left alone long-time Democrat donor Tony Podesta and former Obama White House Counsel Greg Craig.

 

George Papadopoulos and Michael Flynn were charged with making false statements to federal investigators, while Clinton campaign cronies Glenn Simpson and Christopher Steele’s false statements to Congress and the FBI were ignored. Trump’s nonexistent Russian connections were plumbed while a dubious Clinton campaign-funded dossier sourced directly to Russian officials was used as a prosecutorial roadmap rather than rock-solid evidence of actual campaign collusion with the Kremlin.

 

Mueller claimed his report spoke for itself, then put together a completely unnecessary press conference more than a month after his report’s public release, in which he not just spoke for the report, but expounded on the new legal standards he created to govern its conclusions.

 

These are the actions not of an impartial and independent investigator, but of a scheming political operative. None of this is any surprise to anyone who has followed Mueller’s tenure in government. As FBI director, Mueller repeatedly misused and abused the authority granted to him by Congress.

 

Mueller and Comey utterly bungled the federal investigation into the 2001 Anthrax attacks, resulting in a $5.8 million judgment against the government after the two men falsely accused an innocent man of being behind the attacks.

 

Even after the court judgment against him, Mueller was defiant.

 

“I do not apologize for any aspect of the investigation,” Mueller said afterward. He then doubled down and said it would be wrong to say there were any mistakes in how he handled the investigation.

 

Then there was Mueller’s handling as FBI director of a case in which FBI agents framed innocent men of murders the FBI knew had been committed by their own informants. One of the innocent men died in prison awaiting justice for a crime he never committed.

 

Then, as special counsel to investigate Russian collusion during the 2016 campaign, Mueller promptly hired partisan Democrats to run his investigation. He tapped as investigators FBI personnel who openly discussed their hatred of Trump and his voters, as well as their plans to keep him out of office.

 

There’s no longer any doubt about who Robert Mueller is or why he conducted himself the way he did. As abominable as his press conference was, we should in many ways be thankful that Mueller so willingly displayed for all to see his disdain for basic rules of prosecutorial conduct, his total lack of self-awareness, and his naked desire to stick it to Trump.

Nancy Pelosi Admits Democrats are Smearing President Trump


Now that Mueller has publicly affirmed there was a zero crime relation between President Trump and the Russian government (meaning Putin) to conspire together for an election victory in 2016. YET mystically implied President Trump obstructed in the investigation of the zero crime. THEN WATCH THE VIDEO and read the Western Free Press article on how the Dems are smearing President Trump for their political objectives.

Nancy Pelosi Admits Democrats are Smearing President Trump

Nancy Pelosi confesses that the Democrats are on a “smear campaign” because they still can’t accept that their candidate didn’t win in 2016.

 

By James Ledbetter

May 27, 2019

Western Free Press

 

We have seen this on many different occasions. The Democrats are on a “smear campaign” because they still can’t accept that their candidate didn’t win in 2016.

 

In a video published last week, Nancy Pelosi admits that the Democrats are using “smear tactics” to attack President Trump. In the video, she makes bold confessions that should have all Americans on red alert. (RELATED: President Trump Gives AG Barr Power to Declassify Russia Material)

 

“We call it the wrap-up smear–if you want to talk politics,” Pelosi said. “You smear someone with falsehoods and all the rest, and then you merchandise it” Pelosi added.

 

“Then you write it, and they see it reported in the press. So now it is validated that the press reported the smear, that is called wrap-up smear,” Pelosi continued. “Then you merchandise the report on the smear,” Pelosi concluded.

 

Of course, President Donald Trump has said many times while discussing continued aggravation, that nothing will satisfy the Democrats, even after the Mueller investigation found nothing to justify the two-year probe of allegations that he colluded with the Russians during the 2016 presidential campaign.

 

When the Mueller report was released, they were in shock for an entire day. Then they started doubling down. They claimed that they wanted the whole (un-redacted) Mueller report before they would believe the results. (RELATED: LEAKED: Kellyanne Conway Shuts Pelosi Down in Oval Office Meeting)

 

AG William Barr made the un-redacted version of the report available to key Democrats. However, the only two that have read the documents are Republicans.

 

And on Wednesday, according to the Associated Press, when House Speaker Nancy Pelosi answered a question as to what would satisfy the Dems, she pretty much confirmed what the entire Russia probe — which has deeply divided Americans along partisan lines — was all about: “I’ll be satisfied when we have a new president of the United States who that is a Democrat.”

 

It is worthy of highlighting that in the last presidential debate of 2016, candidate Dems asked Trump if he would accept the election results if he were to lose. When Trump said he would have to see, based on whether the authorities managed the election appropriately, the Democrats in and out of the media rebuked him. Now that he won, they refuse to accept the results. (RELATED: Hamas Supporter Arrested for Threatening to Blow Up Trump Tower)

The United States and China Collide

America Must Ensure Her Global Dominance

 

By Justin O. Smith

Sent 5/14/2019 6:54 PM

 

Tariffs will make our Country MUCH STRONGER, not weaker. Just sit back and watch! In the meantime, China should not renegotiate deals with the U.S. at the last minute. This is not the Obama Administration, or the Administration of Sleepy Joe, who let China get away with “murder!” ~ President Trump on May 10th 2019

 

The first opening salvos in the most bitter trade war between the United States and China, unlike any witnessed since the 1930s, are simply part of a broader agenda, as both nations jockey for positions of dominance on the global stage. For those who are crying that tariffs are a tax on the consumer, they are much more than a simple tax, and they are a means to ensuring our economy leads on all fronts in the global markets and the U.S. dollar remains the global reserve currency. And as such, this isn’t so much a trade war as it is an effort by President Trump to ensure America’s global dominance and national security far into the future, by increasing and safeguarding our technical advantage and ability to win any war forced upon us, including the next world war.

 

The U.S. and China relations are testing a new low and the United States and China are on a collision course. Goodwill between the two that was purchased by U.S. dollars is rapidly breaking down.

 

As promised, President Trump raised duties on $200 billion of Chinese imports to twenty-five percent from ten percent on May 10th, and in response, China’s commerce Ministry has vowed “necessary countermeasures” are forthcoming. After eleven rounds of negotiations and no deal, President Trump is also now considering applying tariffs to the $300 billion in Chinese goods that are currently tariff free.

 

Even the Obama administration complained during Obama’s second term about China’s unfair trade practices, such as duties on U.S. chicken, Chinese protectionist acts in the aircraft industry, Chinese subsidy of its corn, rice and wheat production and export duties on various metal.

 

At the heart of the matter, China has stated its plan to be the world’s leading superpower, and they are positioning themselves to rocket past the U.S. in economic and military strength on the back of technology China steals from the United States and every other nation that does business with China. China’s President Xi Jinping believes he can turn China into a super competitive nation and a technical juggernaut and superpower by 2025, in the areas of information technology, aerospace, advanced robotics and artificial intelligence.

 

Although China is more than willing to increase its purchases of U.S. goods, especially soybean and natural gas purchases to offset last year’s record $419 billion trade deficit, China will not accept any limitation on its grander vision and its desire to control the technological mountain top. They may stop talking about it, but they’ll never end China’s Made In China 2025 program; they may become even more secretive, but they will never cease their industrial espionage, and they will continue to coerce technology transfers, if only in a less blatant manner.

 

Since 2010, China has promised eight times to stop forcing foreign companies to transfer technology to China, as a cost of doing business in China. And yet according to a 2018 Office of U.S. Trade report, the coercion has continued.

 

Noted by two retired senior Department of Defense officials in 2017, a problem that costs America $600 billion annually, technology and intellectual property theft must be America’s primary focus over the trade deficit. Although few companies publicly acknowledge the problem, forty-four percent of those aerospace companies and forty-one percent of the chemical concerns operating in China felt pressured to “share” technology with China, according to AmCham Shanghai Business (July 2018), and Rand Corp warns its employees against taking their personal electronics with them to China, since several U.S. businessmen have caught people (spies) searching their rooms. Chinese spies have already stolen documents concerning the U.S. F-35 fighter and the space shuttle, along with secrets on our most significant weapons systems.

 

All of this only confirms that the widening rift between D.C. and Beijing goes beyond trade, and it is further exhibited by China’s massive military buildup, which was only made possible through the near $500 billion trade deficit — or more once one includes intellectual property theft — and U.S. wealth. Among other problems, China is claiming ownership and control of international waterways in the South China Sea and disregarding other nation’s territorial claims, as well as the 2016 International Tribunal on the Law of the Sea ruling (although I’m not a big fan of sovereign nations bowing to international entities), it has significantly suppressed liberty in the ostensibly autonomous region of Hong Kong, and it is increasing pressure on Taiwan — a de facto independent and sovereign nation — to reunite with “the Motherland”.

 

“It was way past time to confront China on many of these problems”, Michael Wessel, a member of the congressionally chartered U.S-China Economic Security Review, recently stated. “They’ve been allowed to skate for too many years.”

 

In the meantime, complaints that the cost of these tariffs will be borne by Americans is exaggerated, since it appears that China absorbed the last round of tariffs out of their profits rather than raising the cost of goods at Walmart. It also appears that China underestimated President Trump’s resolve on this issue and their own miscalculation is biting them in the rump right now. President Trump couldn’t have picked a better time for this confrontation, with the American economy riding high.

 

China also didn’t count on the rising antipathy of Americans towards it, as Americans see China unfairly undercut our economic prosperity, threaten our security and challenge our values. Republicans and Democrats alike are rallying around the flag on this issue, in a rare bipartisan consensus that America must stand up to China.

 

If nothing else, any shift away from China will only be a benefit to America, when U.S. businesses and manufacturers return to America out of cost concerns. Although tariffs do hit consumers, they don’t if one chooses not to buy those particular goods, opting instead to buy comparable goods made in other nations or America. So, President Trump should place tariffs on all Chinese goods and cripple China’s economy, however long or temporary.

 

Just as the Plaza Accord of 1985 forced Japan to act more fairly on trade, by devaluing the dollar against the yen, and eliminated trade barriers, it also demonstrates that White House initiated trade wars do not automatically end in disaster. Aggressive trade measures can and often do work and succeed in placing the global economic system on a more feasible trajectory of an open and rules based economic order.

 

Pat Buchanan recently noted: “Of the nations that have risen to economic preeminence in recent years — the British before 1850, the United States between 1789 and 1914, post-war Japan, China in recent decades — how many did so through free trade? None. All practiced economic nationalism.”

 

President Trump recognizes the party is coming to an end and that America must extricate Herself from the unholy alliance with “the Dragon” and enabling its path to global dominance. He understands that economics do not receive an exemption from the dynamics of geopolitical competition and growing national security concerns associated with China; and, by walking a fine line and between targeted measures and negotiations, President Trump should be able to hand China a face-saving defeat that protects and saves America’s own economic independence, sovereignty, greatness and national identity, without devolution into all-out war. Simply stated, this is one war America must win.

Trump Says He Will Declassify FISA in Exclusive ‘Hannity’ Interview

 

By Jennie Taer

April 26, 2019

SaraACarter.com

 

President Trump said Thursday that he will declassify the FISA applications, the 302s, and the Gang of Eight notebook in an exclusive interview with Sean Hannity.

 

“It will all be declassified. I’m glad I waited because I thought that maybe they would obstruct if I did it early and I think I was right,” said Trump.

 

Moreover, Trump said Attorney General William Barr will can take ‘a very strong look’ at the documents.

 

Sara Carter, who’s been following the Russia probe into the Trump campaign from the start, spoke to this reporter on the importance of the President’s decision to declassify.

 

“Based on the insurmountable evidence that people within the FBI and DOJ were targeting the Trump administration and going so far as to gather sources inside the White House, I think it’s imperative that the President declassify the FISA documents, the 302s, the Gang of Eight notebook, and any other documents that can be declassified into the bureaus investigation into the trump campaign and Russia.” said Carter, “The American people deserve to know the truth and if laws were broken those people should be prosecuted to the full extent of the law.”

 

Further, President Trump congratulated three reporters for their findings on the now debunked Russia collusion investigation, Sara Carter was among the three.

 

“Well, I think it’s incredible when you hear it.  These are great reporters, all three, and when you have them on your trail, that’s a problem,” said Trump. “These are people that should be getting Pulitzers, not the ones that got the Pulitzers that got everything wrong.”

A Crisis On Our Southern Border

A Crisis On Our Southern Border

Extraordinary Circumstances Require Extraordinary Measures

 

By Justin O. Smith

Sent 4/3/2019 9:55 PM

 

Our southern border is being breached and overrun at will, and there is a hard, factual crisis unfolding there, despite a temporary decline in illegal aliens captured at the border between 2006 and 2014 due to an economic downturn. Even some of the most hardcore anti-American Democrats and former Obama officials are hard-pressed to deny that this crisis actually exists, although it seems there isn’t any number of illegal aliens swarming across the border that is large enough to move them to act proactively to secure the border and ensure U.S. sovereignty, national security and the individual economic and physical safety and security of all Americans.

 

With illegal alien entries occurring at their highest rate since 2007, adding to the 30-40 million illegals already here, America has essentially lost effective control over the Mexican-U.S. border, and the current invasion of Illegal Aliens, coming in one massive caravan after another, is on track to push 1.5 million illegal aliens into America this year, in part by way of a semantic deception that calls them “refugees”. This deception is part and parcel of the Democratic Party’s agenda and it is ongoing and in opposition to a majority of Americans who want the illegals deported. Unfortunately, communist activist courts at the federal level, such as the 9th Circuit Court, have also made this next to impossible.

 

Between 2000 and 2006, there was a consistent flow of over one million Illegal Aliens into America, with one year hitting over 1.6 million. That was just the numbers that were detected and returned across the border. One must understand that similarly large numbers are going undetected.

 

Reported by the Department of Homeland Security on March 6th, America can see that in February 76,000 illegal aliens were caught at U.S. ports of entry; the Border Patrol has caught 268,000 illegal aliens since the beginning of the fiscal year, a 97% increase above last year’s numbers; apprehensions of Family Units and Unaccompanied Alien Children have increased 338%; just last month, the Customs and Border Protection agents seized the largest illegal shipment of fentanyl ever recorded — more than enough to kill 115 million Americans. With the detention facilities at 283% capacity, some illegal aliens were actually temporarily sheltered under a bridge in El Paso, Texas. And, it has recently also been revealed that 4000 illegal aliens were caught trying to cross in one day, on March 26th 2019.

 

Jeh Johnson, former Secretary of Homeland Security, recently stated: “I know that a thousand (a day) overwhelms the system. I cannot begin to imagine what 4,000 a day looks like, so we are truly in a crisis.”

 

Even Senator Bernie Sanders (I-Vt), “Big Red” himself, had to reluctantly acknowledge that a crisis exists, but he hedged his words with the usual anti-American tripe, as he suggested that somehow it was the U.S. border policies that were less than humane. Sanders, a 2020 presidential candidate, told ‘Face the Nation’ there is a “terrible humanitarian crisis” at the southern border, as he added, “We need to make sure that our borders are secure, but also we need a humane policy at the border.”

 

Mark Morgan, Obama’s Border Patrol chief, told Maria Bartiromo (Mornings With Maria/Fox Business News): “It’s absolutely an emergency … ICE doesn’t have any more room. … (they) are having to release illegal aliens into … the United States … (and) because of our asylum laws, they step one foot on American soil, they are allowed in never to be heard from again.”

 

Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen says eighty percent of asylum seekers pass the first interview, although only 20 percent ever receive asylum. Nielsen further asserts the people refused asylum are “flat-out fraud[s]” or they are here for economic reasons or to be united with family.

 

It’s also worth noting, in 2018, the federal government reviewed tens of thousands of mostly Chinese immigrants’ asylum statuses. The government was primarily focused on “asylum mills” and groups of lawyers who bragged about coaching migrants from years ago, so they could “fraudulently obtain asylum in Manhattan’s Chinatown and in Flushing, Queens.”

 

These are the policies that allowed twice deported illegal alien Jorge Rios to keep returning to America. Rios, an illegal alien from Honduras, was recently arrested on March 31st for the murder of a New Jersey nanny. And if there’s blame to be placed, place it on Rios and the Democrats, such as Speaker Pelosi and Senator Chuck Schumer who have continuously pushed the Open Borders agenda for political gain,  and RINOs, such as Speaker Paul Ryan who kept diverting the President from the border emergency to keep the cheap labor pools growing, when the Republicans had the majority and could have done something effective; in some respects, both parties have failed the nation on this issue.

 

Recently, Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen implored Congressto act ASAP to give DHSGOV the authorities we need to protect children from the terrible journey, discourage illegal immigration, and secure our border“. She added, “Failure to act is putting lives at risk — especially children who are exploited … and … ‘recycled’ by smugglers / bad guys [who] know our outdated laws and [use] children as a ‘free ticket’ into America without a legal fix and additional resources, there will be no end to the crisis“.

 

Fortunately, President Trump’s National Emergency declaration withstood Democrat and RINO attempts to override it, in the face of such an obvious emergency. And for those who struggle with their native English language, in the manner of the Speaker and Senate Minority Leader, “emergency” is defined by Merriam-Webster as “an unforeseen combination of circumstances or the resulting state that calls for immediate actionan urgent need for assistance or relief.”

 

On Friday March 29th, President Trump noted that Mexico can stop illegal aliens from crossing our southern border, if they choose to do so. The President said: “If they [Mexico] don’t stop [illegal aliens], we’re closing the border. They’ll close it. And we’ll keep it closed for a long time. I’m not playing games.”

 

This was followed by the President’s orders to halt financial aid to these countries that are not discouraging the hordes of illegal aliens, such as El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras. On Saturday March 30th, the State Department acknowledged that it was moving to withhold approximately $700 million in aid to the three Northern Triangle Countries.

 

Virtually every single Democrat is mounting a hue and cry against cutting aid to these countries and closing the border, as they describe the economic damage it will do to the Northern Triangle Countries and Mexico, as well as our own. However, noting that these migrants were already facing “deplorable” conditions,  Kellyanne Conway stated: “This is a classic case of what may happen … versus what’s right in front of us. We are over the melting point.”

 

Several more caravans are forming to send 20,000 to 40,000 more illegal aliens to America, in the wake of the 8,000 member Honduran caravan that not so long ago refused Mexico’s offer of asylum and jobs. Just like Europe’s illegal aliens flooding their countryside hoping to make it to Germany or Great Britain, the Triangle Country illegals know where the largest welfare checks are to be found. America can’t afford either free immigration or a welfare state, and it won’t survive both.

 

Closing the border is a drastic measure that would have immediate consequences for trade and commerce between the United States and Mexico. Mexico is America’s third largest trading partner, with approximately $611 billion in cross-border trade last year, according to the Commerce Department.

 

For each complex problem there exists answers that are clear, simple and wrong, such as Democrats insistence that all who arrive at the border be given immediate entry and legal legitimacy too, even to the point of voting in U.S. elections without being a U.S citizen. These red, radical anti-American Democrats, such as Julian Castro, former mayor of San Antonio, Texas and a 2020 presidential candidate, would totally eradicate 8 U.S. Code 1325 if they could, which would decriminalize unlawful entry, failure to depart the country, fleeing immigration checkpoints, marriage fraud and commercial enterprise fraud. And obstinate as a rock, they refuse to even admit there is an obvious problem, as they turn a blind-eye to the endless stream of humanity, the dregs of Central America, trying to force their way into America, even as they wave foreign flags.

 

President Trump recognizes the crisis and a problem he says can be fixed by Congress “in 45 minutes”, and his recent actions have put all involved on notice that this problem will be resolved or the problem nations will suffer economically. So too will it bear some economic cost to America, but a little pain now is much preferable to the complete destruction of our nation later. He should absolutely refuse to surrender America’s immigration policies to anti-American Congressmen and foreigners, and he must pursue the complete closure of the southern border, if that’s what it takes to force Congress to come to its senses on this issue. Extraordinary circumstances require extraordinary measures, in the name of the security and sovereignty of the United States and humanity.
