THE TRUTH FROM MAYOR RUDI

Fox News Channel logo.svg

President Trump’s attorney Rudy Giuliani said Sunday that special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russia collusion is “rigged” and that investigators are focusing “on things that didn’t happen.”

“Let’s get the facts straight, and let’s get this done,” Giuliani said on “Fox News Sunday.”

Giuliani said the investigation is focusing on “things that didn’t happen” — including members of the Trump presidential campaign allegedly colluding with Russia to influence the outcome of the 2016 presidential race and Trump illegally interfering with the probe.

Trump appears increasingly frustrated about the investigation — which he routinely calls a “witch hunt” — as the probe extends into a second year and interferes with his administration.

Giuliani was hired in recent weeks to try to bring the investigation to a close and perhaps arrange an interview between Trump and Mueller, as a final step.

However, he and others on Trump’s legal team have been wary about allowing Trump to talk, for fear federal investigators might try to set a legal trap.

“We’re not going to sit him down if it’s a trap for perjury,” Giuliani said Sunday. “He wants to explain that he did nothing wrong.”

To be sure, Trump has consistently said he didn’t meddle with Russia to influence the 2016 presidential election. And he argued that the investigation has moved beyond its original intent to include the business dealings of the president’s business associates.

“This is rigged, you’ve got 13 Democrats, no collusion,” Giuliani said. “They are focused on things that didn’t happen.”

He also said the president is “not going to fire anybody” because that would make him look like a victim.

Giuliani also said that the former administration should have informed Trump that it was looking at Russia meddling during the 2016 race and was surveilling his campaign.

“Some of it is Mueller’s fault (but) it completely taints his investigation,” Giuliani said. “The whole thing with this investigation that was going on, which we consider spying, was done before Mueller got involved. But it completely taints his investigation.”

TIME FOR A SATURDAY NIGHT MASSACRE – AND HILLARY IS NOT CHARGED

The American public is fed up! This Mueller investigation is a sham; running roughshod over innocent individuals, ruining lives and preventing a legitimate president from carrying out his duties. The fifth estate is trying to bring down a freely elected President of the United States. Something they could not do at the ballot box. Continuing the Mueller investigation is a smokescreen to bring Trump down; a coup d’etat.  Democrat collusion with the FBI and now an incestuous investigation seeks to do what “jail the bird” failed to do, win in November 2016.

So there is only one alternative here. Fire Mueller, Rosenstein, Wray and Sessions all at once. Bring in Chris Cristie as the new Attorney General to clean up the job that Session has failed to do. There will be plenty of feedback from the Democrats and their partners in the media, but Christie is a big gun who will do what Comey, Lynch and Sessions failed to do – bring the lying cheating Democrats to justice.

A RICO investigation is called for into the Clinton crime syndicate. The DNC and Clinton paid for a fake dossier in order to de-legitimize a candidate for president knowing full well that they had the backing of the insider team of Comey, Strzok and Mueller. Time for Trump to exercise the power granted to him by the Constitution.

ILLEGAL TAKEOVER BY THE DEEP STATE PLAN GONE WRONG – HEADS START TO ROLL

Not one Democrat has been charged, not even a parking ticket written. Hillary Clinton still foaming with the mouth. Huma Abedin violates United States law and not even a parking ticket. Her perv husband doing time for sexting, but no charges for federal violations. Susan Rice illegally targeted Americans through FISA. Wasserman-Schultz stamped “FIX” on Hillary takeover of the DNC. Laws broken, no charges. And the list goes on and on.

But don’t despair because one kingpin has announced his resignation from the FBI.  Andrew McCabe, who is abruptly stepping down today as the FBI’s deputy director, has been the target of criticism by President Trump. But he was also involved in an incident with the White House early last year that raised questions about whether he and the bureau were trying to damage the president.

Strzok and Page, both of whom are under scrutiny after it was revealed that the former members of special counsel Robert Mueller’s team exchanged anti-Trump texts during the 2016 presidential campaign. 

Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russian influence in the 2016 presidential election has been clouded by revelations that two former members of his team sent negative text messages about President Trump.

In the messages, Peter Strzok and Lisa Page, who were romantically involved, bash Trump and discuss concerns about being too tough on Hillary Clinton during an investigation into the use of her private email server. The pair exchanged some 50,000 text messages throughout the presidential election and first year of the Trump administration, many of them with anti-Trump sentiments.

Here’s a look at who exchanged the text messages, and who will leave the FBI.

Peter Strzok is a veteran counterintelligence agent who was assigned to both the investigation into Clinton’s personal email server and Muller’s probe into possible collusion between Trump officials and Russians during the election.

Strzok was removed from the Russia investigation after it was revealed that he exchanged anti-Trump text messages with Page, a senior FBI lawyer.

ABC first reported that Strzok left the probe and was reassigned to the human resources division in August 2017.

According to the text messages, Strzok was hesitant to join Mueller’s investigation because of his “gut sense” that there was “no big there there.”

Strzok, a former Army ranger, also oversaw the FBI’s interviews with former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn. He previously worked on investigations pertaining to Chinese and Russian espionage, according to The New York Times.

Lisa Page

A lawyer for the FBI, Lisa Page was only temporarily on Mueller’s team, but she discussed the investigation with Strzok.

Page warned Strzok via text about the FBI’s investigation into Clinton’s use of a private email server during her tenure as secretary of state, saying in February 2016 that she “might be our next president.”

“The last thing you need [is] going in there loaded for bear,” Page continued. “You think she’s going to remember or care that it was more [DOJ] than [FBI]?”

Page, who has “deep experience [in] money laundering and organized crime cases,” was removed from the investigation in September 2017.

Andrew McCabe

Acting FBI director Andrew McCabe announced plans to retire in 2018. He has been heavily criticized by President Trump but who is he?

A controversial figure at the FBI, deputy director Andrew McCabe was seemingly referenced by Page and Strzok in their text messages.

“I want to believe the path you threw out for consideration in Andy’s office – that there’s no way he gets elected – but I’m afraid we can’t take that risk,” Strzok texted on Aug. 15, 2016. “It’s like an insurance policy in the unlikely event you die before you’re 40.”

Some lawmakers believed “Andy” to be a reference to McCabe.

McCabe, whose wife ran as a Democrat for a Virginia Senate seat with financial assistance from a group tied to Clinton, was a controversial figure in the bureau. He repeatedly faced criticism from Trump.

“How can FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, the man in charge, along with leakin’ James Comey, of the Phony Hillary Clinton investigation (including her 33,000 illegally deleted emails) be given $700,000 for wife’s campaign by Clinton Puppets during investigation?” Trump asked in a Dec. 2017 tweet.

On Jan. 29, McCabe was “removed” from his post, taking “terminal leave” until his planned retirement, Fox News reported.

Republican lawmakers ignited a firestorm late on Thursday(2/24) after  they received a classified memo that documented extensive Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act click (FISA) abuse that officials described as “explosive” and “absolutely shocking.”

Sources who viewed the FISA memo told journalist Sara A. Carter that “they would not be surprised if it leads to the end of Robert Mueller’s Special Counsel investigation into President Trump and his associates.” The sources predicted that it most likely will lead to senior-level government officials at the FBI and DOJ being removed from their positions.

A senior government official who viewed the document and could only speak on the condition of anonymity, since the document is classified, told Carter:

The document shows a troubling course of conduct and we need to make the document available, so the public can see it. Once the public sees it, we can hold the people involved accountable in a number of ways … some of these people should no longer be in the government.

Another official, who also spoke on the condition of anonymity, said that they will “get this stuff released by the end of the month.”

Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL), who viewed the FISA memo, told Fox News that he thinks government officials are headed to prison based on the information contained in the document.

“I think that this will not end just with firings,” Gaetz said. “I believe there are people who will go to jail. You don’t get to try to undermine our country, undermine our elections, and then simply get fired.”

TIME FOR TRUMP TO TAKE MUELLER OUT

Trump attacks Mueller ‘witch hunt’ as WH source calls investigation ‘out of control’

Trump also accused Mueller’s investigators of being “the most biased group of people [with] the biggest conflicts of interest” and said Attorney General Jeff Sessions “made a terrible mistake for the country” when he recused himself from overseeing the Russia investigation last year.

A source close to the White House told Fox News’ John Roberts that the raid showed that the Mueller investigation “is out of control” and was a “demonstration of bad faith” on the part of the special counsel.

“What in the name of God is Mueller doing?” the source told Roberts. “He wants to take down the President.”

This guy Mueller is one step closer to getting his ass hand to him by the President. Raiding the offices of Trump’s lawyer goes beyond the pale. In 18 months Mueller hasn’t uncovered squat. On the other hand he has wasted upwards of $20,000,000 dollars looking for a crime to fit the bill.

SPECIAL COUNSEL MUELLER’S TEAM HAS ONLY ONE KNOWN REPUBLICAN

In February, Fox News reported that most of the 17 confirmed attorneys on Mueller’s team were registered Democrats or made Democratic political donations.

A source close to the Trump legal team told Fox News’ Catherine Herridge that the raid on Cohen was “aggressive” and designed to “squeeze the president.” The source, who has knowledge of talks between Mueller and the president’s legal team, added that the raid “puts a fork in” the prospect of Trump agreeing to be interviewed by the special counsel.

Still, the existence of a referral from Mueller’s office to the Manhattan U.S. Attorney suggests that the matter isn’t related to Russia.

Under Justice Department regulations, Mueller is required to consult with Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein when his investigators uncover new evidence that may fall outside his original mandate. Rosenstein then would determine whether to allow Mueller to proceed or to assign the matter to another U.S. attorney or another part of the Justice Department.

Inside the FBI are hundreds of Hillary-Obama-Democrat operatives, they are guilty of committing the most egregious of all crimes; sedition – an inside coup d’etat. Peter Strozk and Lisa Page coordinated with Comey and McCabe to use a fake dossier paid for by Hillary Clinton to get an illegal FISA warrant to tap the Trump Tower. This swamp is deep and it must be drained. Fire Rosenstein, Wray and Mueller. Give Sessions his walking papers; bring in Chris Christie to shoot the fish in the barrel.

INCEST AT THE FBI – FIRE MUELLER

Been going for years – FBI Democrat phalanx embedded at the highest level of government have an Omerta , the silent code about criminal activity and a refusal to give evidence to authorities which will expose the their mission.  What was their mission? It was to stop at all costs an external threat which would expose their incestual relationship with the Democrat machine. This was manifested in the FBI investigation of Hillary Clinton and her conspiracy cronies. No records of those interviewed have been kept, no affidavits and computer/phone evidence destroyed.

The code began in Sicily around the 16th Century A.D. as a way of opposing Spanish rule. The continuous invasions left the Sicilians with feeling of helplessness, mistrust and rage at the government. They believed that the government was there not to help them out, but to make things even more difficult.  As a result, the Mafia’s golden rule of Omerta was born. It became an unwritten law to keep the government out of their private affairs. Crimes began to be considered personal and justice was received through personal vengeance and vendetta, not by the decision of the government.

So here we have it, the silent code practiced by the top officials of government. All departments from the executive branch to the legislative to the judicial have a surreptitious mission to undermine the Constitution by continuing to take down anyone who interferes with their efforts. One of their prime weapons has been leaks to the media.

However, this Omerta thing was exposed by the election of Donald J. Trump. He presents a clear and present danger to the status quo of government institutions controlled by the progressive hierarchy. This is the reason for the Mueller probe. He is digging deeper and deeper to find a violation of law or some we bit of nothing to taint Trump’s collusion with the Russians using a fake dossier to continue his quest of taking down Trump.

Tell you what folks this Mueller has already spent $50 million in the past year and a half with nothing to show for it. Time for him to stop the taunting, fabricating and ruining lives of innocent citizens including the President of the United States. Fire Mueller now; he has gone overboard. 

PRESIDENT TRUMP: “The Mueller probe should never have been started in that there was no collusion and there was no crime. It was based on fraudulent activities and a Fake Dossier paid for by Crooked Hillary and the DNC, and improperly used in FISA COURT for surveillance of my campaign. WITCH HUNT!”

WE WANT JUSTICE, INVESTIGATE HILLARY CLINTON NOW. WHY IS SHE AND ABEDIN NOT IN JAIL? THAT IS THE QUESTION. 

TIME FOR TRUMP TO GO TRUMP

We’ve been waiting for the bombshell to fall, but none has – Mueller has babbled long enough; yeah he has tagged some of Trump’s hanger-ons with petty crimes like fibbing, spitting on the sidewalk and jaywalking, big f’n deal. These minor violations are all he’s got to show for spending so far $50,000,000. If there were any sharks waiting to be lampooned he would have reeled them in by now. What is the next step for Trump?

Constitutional law expert and former Reagan administration official (click) Mark Levin said Americans have been subjected to a “massive propaganda campaign” to protect Hillary Clinton and President Barack Obama.  Levin said a new memo from Sens. Charles Grassley (R-Iowa) and Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) shows a connection between those involved in the dossier and the Hillary Clinton campaign, as well as the Obama State Department. 

Click here for more from Mark Levin.

Levin stated in 2013 that “the Muslim Brotherhood has infiltrated our government” and called President Obama a Muslim Brotherhood “sympathizer”

In February 2015, Levin stated that President Obama of “seeking to destroy Israel” because “Obama has an affinity for Islam far more than Christianity or Judaism.” Levin also blamed Obama for the Ebola crisis, saying “the political policies of this administration which opens the door wide to people from the poorest parts of the world. We don’t know who they are, we don’t know if they have diseases.”

Wiretap claim

In March 2017, Levin alleged that the Obama administration had used “police state” surveillance tactics against the Donald Trump campaign during the 2016 presidential election. The Associated Press said that Levin “voiced without evidence the idea that Obama had wiretapped Trump Tower”. Levin protested the AP report vigorously, demanding a retraction and an apology on the grounds that his sources for the statement included The New York Times and other newspapers.His statement was reprinted by Breitbart News and reportedly became the basis of President Trump’s unfounded Trump Tower wiretapping allegations. In September 2017, reports emerged of a court-ordered Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) wiretap on Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort; while certain Trump supporters alleged that this surveillance vindicated Levin and Trump’s unsupported assertions, David A. Graham of The Atlantic noted: “This is not true – Trump claimed he had been the subject of Obama-ordered, politically motivated surveillance, for which there remains no evidence.”

“Deep State”

Levin has claimed that there is an-going “coup” occurring against the presidency of Donald Trump waged by Obama loyalists. Levin’s coup claim was referring to investigations of the Russian interference in the 2016 United States elections and of alleged obstruction of justice by Trump. Levin responded that “I’m not arguing to the Trump base. I am making the point that what’s taking place here is coup activity” and that Robert Mueller‘s Grand Jury was trying “to destroy the constitutional system. It is the use of the law to subvert the election.”

Trump must take action now! This folly has gone on long enough.

Obama and company have usurped the legal system in the United States. This is a fact. First of all his team spied on Americans by submitting to the FISA court a false document that was paid for by Hillary “lock her up” Clinton. Why no investigation into the Democrats who have or tried to sabotage the election process. One answer, “Robert Mueller.” What can he do about it? Fire him!

Trump must go Trump, address the nation, lay out the evidence in clear concise language. Present it to the American people. 

Mueller was the head of the FBI when the plan to subvert Trump and the election process took place. It was under his guise that the scheme was rolled out.

Fire Mueller and bring in Christy, fire Sessions and bring in Trey Gowdy. Enough with the amateurs.

WE HAVE WAITED LONG ENOUGH – NOW IS THE TIME FOR HEADS TO ROLL

Kurt Sutter wants heads to roll after Sons of Anarchy spoiler leak

Mueller and Sessions are testing America’s patience. What gives? The investigation has gone on long enough.

Mueller, a Democrat mole who will continue the farce of protecting the guilty. Sessions has had his cajones severed many moons ago, once a bull now a steer.

Time to cut bait and while we are at it the time has come to bring in the FIRING squad. Trump’s ratings are soaring, Americans will understand if he takes action. We have witnessed more corruption by the Obama administration than seen in all Latin American countries combined. This internal corruption continues till this day; in all departments stuffed with Democrat partisans who want to take down our PRESIDENT. 

 

Dear President Trump, we sympathize with you.  We know that you are burning inside watching this incestuous WITCH HUNT continue on and on.

Please go to Mass Media in prime time and tell your story to the American people; you have been forced to fire Mueller and his team including Rosenstein for sedition; and while at it, Session for incompetence. 

Out the FBI employees who tried to take you down. At the same time bring in the big GUN, Chris Christie as Attorney General.  An expert when it comes to shooting fish in a barrel. DO IT MR. PRESIDENT, DO IT NOW!

 

THE WORDS OF HENRY LEE “THERE IS SOMETHING WRONG HERE”

 

There’s Something Wrong Here”… The Legend of Dr. Henry C. Lee

TO WIT: human beings not on life support wonder why not one Democrat have been charged with a crime. Impossible! Why is it the case? It is easy to understand when relevant facts are known. Those who do the charging are Democrats. It is their sacred obligation to help the guilty any way they can. Is this justice? Not by a long shot. Most red blooded Americans are fed up with two legal systems. One for the rich, one for the plebeian.

Huma Abedin, Hillary Clinton (killed our guys in Benghazi), Donna Mills, Susan Rice (who pimped her out?), Debbie Wassermann Schultz, Loretta Lynch, Lois Lerner and the list goes on and on. All guilty of felonies of one kind or another but none have been charged. However, Republicans have been charged, tried and incarcerated for lesser crimes. And in many instances have been found innocent on retrial. So what goes. INJUSTICE JUSTICE SYSTEM. The fix is in when a Democrat is involved. To preserve the Deep State the status quo must be preserved. Therefore, those who hold the legal power will do what they can to preserve there little game, which is to keep the strings of Big Government in the hands of Democrats.

Evidence of collusion with Russia is slimmer than finding life on the moon.  Fusion GPS, a Democrat collusion operation was caught flat footed. They fabricated, manufactured and touted non existent evidence in a plan to catch Trump colluding with Vladimir.  Obama had a word to say to him in the OPEN MIKE EPISODE he had with comrade Medvedev.  Anyway, in cutting to the chase the FBI has found nothing. But the beat goes on because Fusion GPS is friends with the FBI and the Justice Department.

TIME FOR TRUMP TO START SETTLING SCORES!

NOT RUSSIANS, BUT FBI DEMOCRATS INTERFERED IN ELECTION – FBI PLANNED A COUP D’ETAT

Rep. Jim Jordan: I’m Convinced FBI Tried to Stop Trump From Being President

Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) told the Todd Starnes Show he is convinced the FBI was actively trying to stop Donald Trump from being elected president of the United States.

Last week, Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) called for the firing of special counsel Robert Mueller.

Click here for a free subscription to Todd’s newsletter: a must-read for Conservatives! 

I asked Jordan if he bought into the argument that something nefarious was afoot.

“The whole pretext is wrong. Think about this – you had – I’m convinced now – the FBI actively seeking with intent – actively trying to stop Donald Trump from being President of the United States,” Jordan told Starnes.

He was referring to a treasure trove of text messages written by investigator Peter Strzok – referring to an “insurance” policy. Watch the entire interview above.

Last week, Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) called for the firing of special counsel Robert Mueller.

“We are at risk of a coup d’etat in this country if we allow an unaccountable person with no oversight to undermine the duly-elected President of the United States,” Gaetz said Wednesday in remarks deliver on the House floor. “And I would offer that is precisely what is happening right now with the indisputable conflicts of interest that are present with Mr. Mueller and others at the Department of Justice.”

Jordan said he was very concerned that the “insurance policy” might have been dressing up the dossier and turning it into an intelligence document and taking it to the FISA court to obtain a warrant to spy on Americans.

“If that happened and it sure looks like it did – if that happened it is wrong as it can possibly be in this great country for the FBI to actively be trying to make sure one individual, one major party’s nominee does not become the next president is as wrong as it gets,” Jordan said.

As I said on last week’s program – it appears the Obama Administration not only weaponized the Internal Revenue Service, but it appears they also weaponized the FBI.

Jordan said it “looks like they went after a major party’s nominee for president and said we cannot allow that individual to be the next president of the united states and they actively tried to stop it.”

MUELLER – A CRIMINAL’S CRIMINAL

Gregg Jarrett: Mueller’s allegedly lawless acts have corrupted his probe and demand his removal

Special Counsel Robert Mueller is accused of acting in complete disregard for the law and must be removed.  And so, too, must his entire team.

There is devastating new evidence to suggest that Mueller and his staff of lawyers improperly, if not illegally, obtained tens of thousands of private documents belonging to President-elect Trump’s Presidential Transition Team (PTT).  The material includes emails, laptops and cell phones used by 13 PTT members.

Critically, a “significant volume of privileged material” was taken by Mueller, according to the Trump transition lawyer, and then used by the special counsel team in its investigation. Mueller’s staff apparently admits this egregious violation, which the law strictly forbids.

The Records Are Private

The Presidential Transition Act states that all records of transition operations are private and confidential.

On November 16, 2016, roughly ten days after Trump was elected president, the Chief Records Officer of the U.S. Government sent a letter to all federal agencies reminding them that “the materials that PTT members create or receive are not Federal or Presidential records, but are considered private materials.”

Yet Mueller seems to have ignored the law.  Without a warrant or subpoena, his team of lawyers brazenly demanded these private records from the General Services Administration (GSA) which held custody of the materials.  The GSA does this as a service to all incoming presidents out of courtesy, but it neither owns the documents nor is authorized to release them to anyone under any circumstances because they are deemed entirely private.

If true, Mueller’s conduct is not only unethical and improper, it constitutes lawlessness. On this basis, he must be removed and replaced.

Counsel for the Trump Transition Team has sent a letter to Congress alleging the Fourth Amendment was violated in “failing to obtain a warrant for the search or seizure of private property in which the owner has a reasonable expectation of privacy (Coolidge v. New Hampshire, 403 U.S. 443, 489).”

Mueller might contest the claim of an unlawful seizure because the GSA willingly handed over the documents, but this disregards the fact that the GSA broke the law and Mueller surely knew it when he pressured the agency to do so.

Privileged Material

The most serious charge against Mueller is that he obtained, reviewed and used material that is privileged.

For months, Mueller allegedly failed to disclose to the transition team that he acquired these privileged documents.  Under the law, he and his lawyers are not entitled to possess or read any of them.  Even worse, the transition team says it warned the special counsel six months ago that it had no right to access the records without gaining permission from the PTT.

Courts have clearly stated what prosecutors are supposed to do under these circumstances: “An attorney who receives privileged documents has an ethical duty to cease review of the documents, notify the privilege holder, and return the documents.”  (U.S. v. Taylor 764 Fed Sup 2nd, 230, 235)

Did Mueller do this?  Apparently not.  He never notified PTT when his staff of lawyers encountered the privileged documents and he compounded his violation of the law by possessing and accessing them for months.

Only the owner of such materials can waive the privileged that protects them.  Since the GSA does not, under the law, own the records, only the transition team can make such a waiver.  It did not.

Hence, if any illegally obtained documents have been used in the Trump-Russia case, then the results are tainted and invalid.  This is a well-established principle of law.

Mueller Must Be Removed

The use by Mueller of even one privileged document can, and must, result in his disqualification from the case.

The case of Finn v. Schiller, 72 F.3rd 1182, 1189 spells out the required remedy for this violation of the law: “Courts have frequently used their supervisory authority to disqualify prosecutors for obtaining materials protected by the attorney-client privilege.” 

Statutory law also demands Mueller’s removal.  Pursuant to 5 C.F.R. 2635.501, government employees, including prosecutors, are directed to “take appropriate steps to avoid an appearance of loss of impartiality in the performance of his or her official duties.”  

The lawyer for the Trump transition team states that the special counsel’s office admitted in a telephone conversation on Friday that it failed to use an “ethical wall” or “taint team” to segregate any privileged records.  This is often done to keep them isolated from lawyers and investigators involved in the case.

Yet, Mueller did not adopt such precautionary measures.  Instead, he apparently allowed his team to utilize the documents while questioning witnesses in the Trump-Russia case.

If true, Mueller’s conduct is not only unethical and improper, it constitutes lawlessness.  On this basis, he must be removed and replaced.

Given the insular nature of the special counsel operation, it is reasonable to conclude that all the lawyers and investigators likely accessed the privileged documents.  Therefore, not just Mueller, but his entire team must be dismissed.  This would include Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein who oversees the case.

Either Congress should take aggressive action or the Presidential Transition Team (now Trump for America, Inc.) must petition a federal judge to order their removal.

The integrity of the special counsel probe has been deeply compromised by numerous allegations of corrupt acts.  In its current composition, it seems beyond repair.

‘F TRUMP’: Texts between ex-Mueller team members emerge, calling Trump ‘loathsome human,’ ‘an idiot’

 

NO WAY!” Page answered, adding “God, it’s just a two-bit organization. I do so hope his disorganization comes to bite him hard in November.”

On Aug. 6, Page texted Strzok a New York Times article about Muslim lawyer Khzir Khan, who became embroiled in a war of words with Trump after Khan spoke at the Democratic National Convention.

“Jesus. You should read this. And Trump should go f himself,” Page wrote in a message attached to the article.

“God that’s a great article,” Strzok answered. “Thanks for sharing. And F TRUMP.”

DEEP STATE CONSPIRACY – PLAN A FAILED – HILLARY LOST – PLAN B – BRING TRUMP DOWN

Gregg Jarrett: Did the FBI and the Justice Department, plot to clear Hillary Clinton, bring down Trump?

By Gregg Jarrett | Fox News

Fox News Channel logo.svg

There is strong circumstantial evidence that an insidious plot unprecedented in American history was hatched within the FBI and the Obama Justice Department to help elect Hillary Clinton and defeat Donald Trump in the 2016 presidential election.

And when this apparent effort to improperly influence the election did not succeed, the suspected conspirators appear to have employed a fraudulent investigation of President Trump in an attempt to undo the election results and remove him as president.

However, this apparent plot to keep Trump from becoming president and to weaken and potentially pave the way for his impeachment with a prolonged politically motivated investigation – if proven – would constitute something far more nefarious and dangerous.

Such a plot would show that partisans within the FBI and the Justice Department, driven by personal animus and a sense of political righteousness, surreptitiously conspired to subvert electoral democracy itself in our country.

As of now, we have no proof beyond a reasonable doubt of such a plot. But we have very strong circumstantial evidence.

And as the philosopher and writer Henry David Thoreau wrote in his journal in 1850: “Some circumstantial evidence is very strong, as when you find a trout in the milk.”

Newly revealed text messages about the apparent anti-Trump plot are the equivalent of a trout in the milk. It smells fishy.

The Plans

The mainstream media and Democrats dismiss talk of an anti-Trump conspiracy by the FBI and Justice Department as right-wing nonsense – paranoid fantasies of Trump supporters with no basis in facts. But there are plenty of facts that lay out a damning case based on circumstantial evidence.

Recently disclosed text messages between FBI Special Agent Peter Strzok and FBI lawyer Lisa Page suggest there may have been two parts of the apparent anti-Trump plot.

“Part A” was to devise a way to exonerate Clinton, despite compelling evidence that she committed crimes under the Espionage Act in her mishandling of classified documents on her private email server.

Absolving Clinton cleared the way for her to continue her candidacy at a time when all polls and just about every pundit predicted she would be elected president in November 2016. If Clinton had been charged with crimes she would likely have been forced to drop her candidacy, and if she remained in the race her candidacy would have been doomed.

But “Part A” of the apparent anti-Trump plot was not enough. A back-up plan would be prudent. It seems the Obama Justice Department and FBI conjured up a “Part B” just in case the first stratagem failed. This would be even more malevolent – manufacturing an alleged crime supposedly committed by Trump where no crime exists in the law.

And so, armed with a fictitious justification, a criminal investigation was launched into so-called Trump-Russia “collusion.” It was always a mythical legal claim, since there is no statute prohibiting foreign nationals from volunteering their services in American political campaigns.

More importantly, there was never a scintilla of evidence that Trump collaborated with Russia to influence the election.

No matter. The intent may have been to sully the new president while searching for a crime to force him from office.

But thanks to the discovery of text messages, circumstantial evidence has been exposed.

The Texts

The text messages exchanged between Strzok and Page, who were romantically involved, confirm a stunning hostility toward Trump, calling him an “idiot” and “loathsome.”

At the same time, the texts were filled with adoring compliments of Clinton, lauding her nomination and stating: “She just has to win now.”

One text between Strzok and Page dated Aug. 6, 2016 stands out and looks like the proverbial smoking gun.

Page: “And maybe you’re meant to stay where you are because you’re meant to protect the country from that menace.” (This is clearly a reference to a Trump presidency).

Strzok:  “Thanks. And of course I’ll try and approach it that way. I can protect our country at many levels .…”

It is reasonable to conclude that Strzok had already taken steps to “protect” the country from what he considered would be a dangerous and harmful Trump presidency.

Just one month earlier, then-FBI Director James Comey had announced he would recommend that no criminal charges be filed by the Justice Department against Clinton. Given all the incriminating evidence against Clinton, Comey’s view that she should not be prosecuted made no sense by any objective standard.

This is where Strzok played a pivotal role. As the lead investigator in the Clinton email case, he is the person who changed the critical wording in Comey’s description of Clinton’s handling of classified material, substituting “extremely careless” for “gross negligence.”

As I explained in an earlier column, this alteration of two words had enormous consequences, because it allowed Clinton to evade prosecution. This removed the only legal impediment to her election as president.

Documents made available by the Senate Homeland Security Committee also show that Comey intended to declare that the sheer volume of classified material on Clinton’s server supported the “inference” that she was grossly negligent, which would constitute criminal conduct. Yet this also was edited out, likely by Strzok, to avoid finding evidence of crimes.

This seems to be what Page and Strzok meant when they discussed his role as protector of the republic. It appears that Strzok was instrumental in clearing Clinton by rewriting Comey’s otherwise incriminating findings.

Were Page and Strzok also referring to the investigation of Trump that was begun in July 2016, right after Clinton was absolved?  After all, Strzok was the agent who reportedly signed the documents launching the bureau’s Trump-Russia probe. And he was a lead investigator in the case before jumping to Robert Mueller’s special counsel team.

If there is any doubt that Strzok and Page sought to undermine the democratic process, consider this cryptic text about their “insurance policy” against the “risk” of a Trump presidency.

Strzok:  “I want to believe the path you threw out for consideration in Andy’s office – that there’s no way he gets elected – but I’m afraid we can’t take that risk. It’s like an insurance policy in the unlikely event you die before you’re 40.…”

The reference to “Andy” is likely Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe, who was also supervising the investigation of Clinton’s emails at the same time his wife was receiving roughly $675,000 in campaign money in her race for elective office in Virginia from groups aligned with Clinton.

What was the “insurance policy” discussed in Andy’s office? Was it the FBI’s investigation of Trump and his associates?  Or was it the anti-Trump “dossier” that may have been used by the FBI and the Justice Department as the basis for a warrant to wiretap and spy on Trump associates? Perhaps it was both.

The Dossier

The “dossier” was a compendium of largely specious allegations about Trump, compiled by the opposition research firm Fusion GPS. The dossier was funded by the Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee. Comey called it “salacious and unverified.”

Various congressional committees suspect the dossier was illegally used to place a Trump campaign associate, Carter Page, under foreign surveillance. When asked about that on Wednesday during a hearing on Capitol Hill, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein refused to answer, which sounds like an implicit “yes.”

Using a dubious, if not phony, document in support of an affidavit to obtain a warrant from a federal judge constitutes a fraud upon the court, which is a crime.

The dossier scandal recently ensnared Bruce Ohr, a top Justice Department official, who was demoted last week for concealing his meetings with the men behind the document.

Ohr’s wife worked for Fusion GPS. This created a disqualifying conflict of interest for Mr. Ohr. He was legally obligated under Justice Department regulations to recuse himself from the Mueller investigation of Russia’s role in the election, but he did not.

Congress needs to find out whether the dossier was exploited as a pretext for initiating the Russia probe against President Trump. It would also be unconscionable, if not illegal, for the FBI and Justice Department to use opposition research funded by Clinton’s campaign to spy on her opponent or his campaign.

Both agencies have been resisting congressional subpoenas and other demands for answers, which smacks of a cover-up. Since the Justice Department cannot be trusted to investigate itself, a second special counsel should be appointed.

This new counsel should also reopen the Clinton email case and investigate the conduct of Strzok, Page, Comey and others who may have obstructed justice by exonerating Clinton in the face of substantial evidence that she had committed crimes.

If Strzok or anyone else allowed their political views to shape the investigations of either Clinton or Trump and dictate the outcomes, that is a felony for which they should be prosecuted.

The Mueller investigation is now so tainted with the appearance of corruption that it has lost credibility and the public’s trust.

It is very much like a trout in the spoiled milk.
