Mueller Goes After Trump's Attorney

White House: Trump thinks he can fire Robert Mueller
by Sarah Westwood
{ } ~ President Trump believes he has the authority to remove special counsel Robert Mueller... White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said Tuesday, although she declined to specify whether Trump plans to exercise that authority. "I know a number of individuals in the legal community, and including at the Department of Justice, said he has the power to do so, but I don't have any further announcements," Sanders told reporters at the White House. "We've been advised that the president certainly has the power to make that decision," she added. "I can't go anything beyond that." Sanders dodged additional questions Tuesday about whether Trump has lost confidence in Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and FBI Director Christopher Wray, both of whom reportedly played roles in approving an FBI raid Monday of an office and hotel room used by Michael Cohen, Trump's longtime personal attorney...He can.
What to do about Syria — and its chief accomplice, Iran
by Richard Goldberg 
{ } ~ Within hours of learning that Bashar al-Assad launched another horrific chemical-weapons attack on his own people... President Trump tweeted there’d be a “big price to pay.” He should follow his instincts by holding Assad accountable, increasing his leverage over Vladimir Putin and breaking Iran’s strategic foothold in Syria. The tragedy of Syria is largely rooted in two decisions made by Trump’s predecessor, Barack liar-nObama. The first was a refusal to act on his own declared red line for military action in response to the use of chemical weapons, which invited Russia and Iran to dominate the region. The second was liar-nObama’s decision to waive US sanctions on the Central Bank of Iran, which gave the Islamic Republic hundreds of billions of dollars to bolster the Assad regime both financially and militarily. Trump now has an opportunity to reverse both mistakes. First and foremost, he should respond militarily to Assad’s crimes... 
Russia vetoes US resolution 
on Syrian chemical weapons investigation
by Joel Gehrke
{ } ~ Russia on Tuesday vetoed a U.S.-led resolution to establish a process for investigating the apparent chemical weapons attack in Syria... during the second consecutive day debate on the incident at the United Nations Security Council. "Russia will not be able to support the American draft,” Vasily Nebenzia, Russian ambassador to the U.N., said Tuesday. President Trump’s administration has suggested a willingness to carry out a retaliatory strike against the Syrian President Bashar Assad’s regime, regardless of the outcome of the Security Council debate. The resolution received 12 votes on the 15-member council, but Russia — which is supporting the Assad regime in the Syrian civil war — is one of five nations with the power to veto Security Council draft resolutions.“Russia’s credibility as a member of the council is now in question,” Karen Pierce, the British Ambassador to the United Nations, said after the vote...
Trump Says He’s Hitting Syria
by Rebekah Baker
{ } ~ Following another suspected chemical attack in Syria over the weekend... President Donald Trump announced the United States’ plan to respond with force. “We’re making a decision as to what we do with respect to the horrible attack that was made near Damascus, and it will be met and it will be met forcefully,” the president told reporters during a Cabinet Room meeting with military leaders on Monday. “When, I will not say because I don’t like talking about timing.” Trump was joined by his newly appointed National Security Advisor John Bolton, along with Vice President Mike Pence, Defense Secretary Jim Mattis and the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Gen. Joseph Dunford...
Democrat Rails Against ICE 
for Nabbing Illegal Who’s Been Arrested 15 Times

{ } ~ A Democrat congresswoman who recently said that adding a citizenship question to the census was an attempt to “make America white again”... is in the news today for coming to the defense of a 15x-arrested illegal immigrant who has been detained by Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents. The problem? ICE took Diogenes Pinzon into custody at the Brooklyn Criminal Courthouse, where he was present to answer for domestic violence and robbery charges. That, to Democrats, is a violation of trust with the illegal immigrant community – a trust that is apparently important…for some reason. “Extremely concerning to hear that ICE agents targeted an undocumented immigrant just outside Brooklyn Criminal Court this morning,” Rep. Nydia Velasquez tweeted. “Such actions by ICE have no place in our City & I will be monitoring the situation carefully.”... 

Opinion in Brief

Michelle Malkin: “While congresscritters expressed outrage at Facebook’s intrusive data grabs during Capitol Hill hearings with Mark Zuckerberg this week, not a peep was heard about the Silicon Valley-Beltway theft ring purloining the personal information and browsing habits of millions of American schoolchildren. It doesn’t take undercover investigative journalists to unmask the massive privacy invasion enabled by educational technology and federal mandates. The kiddie data heist is happening out in the open — with Washington politicians and bureaucrats as brazen co-conspirators. Facebook is just one of the tech giants partnering with the U.S. Department of Education and schools nationwide in pursuit of student data for meddling and profit. Google, Apple, Microsoft, Pearson, Knewton, and many more are cashing in on the Big Data boondoggle. State and federal educational databases provide countless opportunities for private companies exploiting public schoolchildren subjected to annual assessments, which exploded after adoption of the tech industry-supported Common Core ‘standards,’ tests, and aligned texts and curricula. The recently passed Every Student Succeeds Act further enshrined government collection of personally identifiable information … and allows release of the data to third-party contractors thanks to Obama-era loopholes carved into the Family Education Rights and Privacy Act.”   ~The Patriot Post


Mueller Goes After Trump's Attorney 

by Thomas Gallatin:  On Monday, the FBI conducted no-knock raids on the office and home of President Donald Trump’s longtime personal attorney, Michael Cohen, taking his phone, computer and personal financial records. The Washington Post reported that Cohen “is under federal investigation for possible bank fraud, wire fraud, and campaign finance violations,” and that this raid is directly tied to special counsel Robert Mueller’s ongoing investigation — though Mueller did refer it to the U.S. attorney for the Southern District of New York.

               Upon learning of the raid, a clearly frustrated Trump responded by calling it “a disgrace.” He added, “I have this witch hunt constantly going on for over 12 months now or longer. It’s an attack on our country in a true sense; it’s an attack on what we all stand for.” Trump then reiterated that he has been repeatedly urged to fire Mueller and end the investigation.
               Cohen’s lawyer, Stephen Ryan, called the FBI’s raid tactics “inappropriate and unnecessary,” pointing out that Cohen has “cooperated completely with all government entities, including providing thousands of non-privileged documents to the Congress and sitting for depositions under oath.”
               Cohen has long been a subject/target of the Mueller investigation because of his close working relationship with Trump over the years. When the story broke about Trump’s alleged 2006 affair with adult-film actress Stormy Daniels and a subsequent large payment of hush money, Cohen defended Trump, claiming that Trump had no knowledge of the payment, which Cohen had paid out of his own pocket, and that he was not reimbursed by Trump. And last week Trump backed up this claim, saying he had no knowledge of a payment to Daniels. Cohen further explained, “The payment to [Stephanie] Clifford [a.k.a. Daniels] was lawful, and was not a campaign contribution or a campaign expenditure by anyone.
               Alan Dershowitz, a liberal Harvard Law professor, reacted to the news, saying, “This is a very dangerous day today for lawyer-client relations.” He explained, “I tell [clients] on my word of honor that what you tell me is sacrosanct. And now they say, just based on probable cause … they can burst into the office, grab all the computers and then give it to another FBI agent and say, ‘You’re the firewall. We want you now to read all these confidential communications, tell us which ones we can get and which ones we can’t get.’” Dershowitz astutely noted, “If this were liar-Hillary Clinton being investigated and they went into her lawyer’s office, the ACLU would be on every television station in America, jumping up and down. The deafening silence from the ACLU and civil libertarians about the intrusion into the lawyer-client confidentiality is really appalling.” There is, of course, a big exception to attorney-client privilege when it comes to crime, but this instance is murky.
               Indeed, as Jonah Goldberg observes, “The fact that U.S. Attorney Geoffrey Berman agreed with Mueller’s interpretation and sought a warrant from a judge and that the judge agreed to grant one suggests that Cohen is in trouble.
               Once again it appears that Mueller is hard at work seeking a serious charge of campaign-finance violation against Trump. So much for the Russian collusion gambit, but as we have repeatedly warned, these special investigations are given such broad authority and power to investigate that they rarely actually bring charges based on their initial impetus. And yet they rarely come up empty-handed either. Trump’s low moral character only makes that more likely.   ~The Patriot Pos

What did we expect from rosenstein and mueller. What Trump needs to do is fire them both and also session and select a IG that will do the job of a second special counsel.

Comment by Bonnie Somer on April 12, 2018 at 5:01am

if mueller can do this what else can they do?   alot.   read killing the deep state and secret empires

mueller is as dirty as they come and comey is no better.  lynch is one of them as is rosenstein.   

the sp counsel has one job but the statute was never laid out rosenstein did not care what rock mueller turned over to find a crime

collusion is NOT one so he keeps looking.  it is now way beyond the scope of what he was supposed to do.

GOP Activist Investigating Hillary Clinton’s Lost Emails
Found Dead — Apparent Suicide By Black Plastic Bag Republican activist Peter Smith was found dead in his hotel room in May 2017 in Rochester, Minnesota.

The hotel staff found Smith with a black plastic bag on his head. He was trying to obtain Hillary Clinton’s lost emails.

UPDATE: Mueller and Congressional investigators have interviewed Smith’s acquaintances several times. Our sources say there is much more to this story.

The Wall Street Journal reported:

Peter W. Smith, a Republican political activist and financier from Chicago who mounted an effort to obtain former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s emails from Russian hackers, died on May 14 after asphyxiating himself in a hotel room in Rochester, Minn., according to local authorities. He was 81 years old.

Mr. Smith’s body was found by a hotel clerk in the Aspen Suites hotel, located across the street from the Mayo Clinic, according to a Rochester Police Department report. An associate of Mr. Smith said that he had recently visited the clinic. A representative for the facility wouldn’t confirm if Mr. Smith was a patient.

Mr. Smith died about 10 days after an interview with The Wall Street Journal in which he recounted his attempts to acquire what he believed were thousands of emails stolen from Mrs. Clinton’s private email server. He implied that Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, then serving as the senior national security adviser to presidential candidate Donald Trump, was aware of his efforts…

…The police report said Mr. Smith was found by a hotel clerk with a plastic bag around his head attached tightly with black rubber bands. Mr. Smith “left documentation on why he committed suicide, medical records, his written obituary, and life insurance” on a table in his room, the report said.


Massachusetts Man Arrested After Trying To Hire
A Hit Man On Twitter To Kill ICE Agents For $500

A 33-year-old lefty from Cambridge, Massachusetts named Brandon Ziobrowski was arrested Thursday after offering anyone on Twitter $500 to kill ICE agents.

Ziobrowski also expressed his desire to slit John McCain’s throat in several tweets.

FOX News reported:

A Massachusetts man was arrested in New York on Thursday after trying to hire a hit man on Twitter to kill ICE agents for $500 and sharing his desire to slit the throat of Sen. John McCain, federal officials said.

The U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of Massachusetts said that Brandon Ziobrowski, 33, from Cambridge, Mass. was charged with one count of use of interstate and foreign commerce to transmit a threat and injure another person for the alleged Twitter posts this year.

Federal officials said Ziobrowski tweeted a murder for hire solicitation to kill Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents for $500, and repeatedly tweeted his desire to slit the throat of McCain, R-Ariz.

“The agents and officers out there enforcing federal laws are doing their job, plain and simple,” U.S. Attorney Andrew Lelling said at a news conference. “There is a difference between public debate and putting others in fear of their lives.”

Federal officials said Ziobrowski in March started tweeting threatening messages against federal agents that work for ICE.

On July 2, the 33-year-old allegedly tweeted: “I am broke but will scrounge and literally give $500 to anyone who kills ICE agent. @me seriously who else can pledge get in on this lets make this work.”

The Justice Department released a statement on the arrest of Ziobrowski:
