Another One! Mueller Deputy Was
Personal Attorney of Ben Rhodes,
Represented Clinton Foundation

PJ Media, by Debra Heine

Original Article

Posted By:Pluperfect, 12/6/2017 4:39:12 AM

On Fox News Tuesday night, Laura Ingraham reported that yet another one of Robert Mueller´s deputies in his Russia investigation is compromised due to her track record as a blatant partisan. Jeannie Rhee, who was hired by Mueller last summer to work on the probe, was the personal attorney of Ben Rhodes and also represented the Clinton Foundation, Ingraham revealed. "This information will put further pressure on Special Prosecutor Bob Mueller to resign." Rhee is the third member of the Mueller team this week who has been shown to be brazenly partisan. Two other members of the team have been revealed as

It will be interesting to hear the views of self-anointed “ethics” “experts” like Walter Shaub, Richard Painter and most of all, Norman Eisen — the Obama buddy, bagman and all-around factotum who gave us Hillary’s risible “ethics agreement” as Secretary of State — concerning Ms. Rhee’s participation in a prosecution that necessarily involves — at a minimum as witnesses, but much more likely as full-fledged criminal perps — her “former” law clients Ben “Mind Meld with Zero” Rhodes, and Bill and Hillary in their stage personae and personal piggy bank known as the Clinton Foundation.

Rosenstein appointed Mueller and got the hit team he wanted. Rosenstein can also fire Mueller. He won´t because it would expose himself as complicit with all of the Butcher´s dirty deals, including Uranium One and the e-mail cover-up.

Seven million dollars and a team of Socialist Clinton lovers have not been able to find proof that Pres. Trump or any of his staff colluded with the Russians. It is time to put a stop to this travesty.

Something brought up in this article that has been downplayed in recent turmoil over Mueller´s team...

FTA
The operation primarily focused on discrediting Flynn, an opponent of the Iran nuclear deal, in order to handicap the Trump administration´s efforts to disclose secret details of the nuclear deal with Iran that had been long hidden by the Obama administration.

Insiders familiar with the anti-Flynn campaign told the Free Beacon that these Obama loyalists plotted in the months before Trump´s inauguration to establish a set of roadblocks before Trump´s national security team, which includes several prominent opponents of diplomacy with Iran. The Free Beacon first reported on this effort in January."

Once the election was lost to the O administration.. all out efforts were devised to get rid of Flynn because of what he knew about the rotten Iran deal. Also, to get rid of Sessions so he was out of the picture on the false narrative.. Russia.

It was and is quite the plan... and now it´s time to demand that all this is exposed. I don´t want Trump shutting down Mueller.. that will give the Dems and the MSM all the fodder they are looking for ..for "obstruction".. Let it be Rosenstein. or the new FBI director. Enough of ruining lives when so many crimes were actually covered up.

It is hard to suspend belief that Rosenstein had no prior idea what kind of people Mueller was planning to bring in. They are all in on this - thick as thieves. If justice is to flow down like rolling waters (to paraphrase the risible Comey) Rosenstein, McCabe the whole lot need to be sacked.

FTA: What we´re seeing here is a pattern and practice of Mueller hiring known Clinton and Obama political insiders and boosters, supporters to undo a presidential election
Here´s my question. These people were hired last JUN-SEPT. And not a single Republican, conservative journalist, or even Trump inner circle person bothered to check them out or see a disturbing pattern about their backgrounds until NOW? Nobody, NOBODY questioned this? Why is it we´re playing defense on this?

If Fox News knows this President Trump knows it too. I think Trump is completing his first year´s agenda and into next year will drop his ´neutron bomb´ on the whole lot of them and maybe by the third year go after ´crooked Hillary´. President Trump is a smart and shrewd business man so right now he´ll sit back and tweet his thoughts to the American people. Hillary and her ilk might rue the day they mentioned Russia and Russians.

When will the Republican leaders, including Jeff Sessions, start enforcing laws? There is no evidence that Trump colluded with the Russians which was a manufactured story to cover-up the democrats´ real crime that Hilliary, also a candidate for President, did collude with the Russians and sold them our uranium while Secretary of State. What the democrats are viciously charging Republicans with is what they have already done and are trying to cover-up. Since they say Trump is an "imposter", what does that make Obama or Hillary?

I really don´t understand why all of a sudden there is such shock regarding those on the Muller team. I realize that now there are recent specific incidents showing their blatant bias, but at the outset I posted, and many other posters did too, the backgrounds of those chosen by Mueller that showed they were ALL biased Obama and Clinton supporters. Links below shows the list of them.  The backgrounds of Rhee, Strzok and Weissmann are all given. Of course Rhee´s does not show that she was attorney for Ben Rhodes nor does it mention Weissmann was almost disbarred.. The first link shows that she was asst. AG for Holder and advised Obama on criminal law and executive issues. For anyone to think she wouldn´t be biased is out of their mind.  

The worst choice was Andrew Weissmann. The link below from the Washington Times gives an excellent summary of his gross misdeeds. He should have been disbarred. Instead he was let off the hook by a New York judge and let AG Lynch decide what to do with him even though they were defending him in the disbarment.  Link below.  Just stunning.  It is even worse because Weissmann is the one who prosecuted Manafort and Gates. As more is revealed it will confirm what we already knew and prove Trump was right once again.

We´ve known this for months. Geez, this intrigue by conservative news is getting stupid. Look, the federal government´s law enforcement branches, the GOP, all Obama, Clinton, and even W appointed bureaucrats, judges, etc, all the elected Marxists; ALL of them are trying to impeach Trump and have been since Nov 9, 2016. That´s their mission and goal and they will NOT stop. Did we not know Ben Rhodes´ personal attorney was on the Mueller team last February? YES, we did.

Good grief, is conservative media competing for a Howie Kurtz Firm-Grasp-Of-The-Obvious Award?

So, now there´s proof, PROOF I tell you that the Mueller Russia investigation is one sided? Wow. Makes me want to go buy a pillow, a mattress, a safe and maybe even get my old VCR tapes converted to digital media.

To reinforce #8:
Jeff Sessions can easily un-recuse himself with the argument that the recusal was based on issues of Russian collusion. Since Mueller´s witch hunt has clearly left the collusion tracks, Sessions can assert himself and terminate this coup.

With a Department as large and swampy as Justice, if you were Sessions, would you just go in and start investigating all the areas we all know should have been long ago? Think again. How would you know who to put on the investigative teams? How do you try to ensure any investigations wouldn´t be sabotaged from within? You don´t know. So, you slowly begin the process of purging the swamp within the department before you go after the previous administration perpetrators. I think it´s possible that is precisely what Sessions is doing, and doing so in his inimical, understated manner, like the proverbial swimming duck whose feet are churning but the duck doesn´t seem to be going very fast. There is plenty of time to drop the MOABs once a loyal team is in place in the FBI and all the legal areas within the Justice Dept.

There are fine constitutional lawyers who can argue back and forth about the Masterpiece Cakeshop case the Supreme Court heard last week, which will determine whether a Christian baker can decline to make a same-sex couple’s wedding cake. The court’s decision will either limit antidiscrimination law or limit First Amendment protections, so it’s not surprising that you can find deeply-footnoted legal arguments on both sides. Nor is it surprising that I’m on the side of the baker. But I’m not going to make a constitutional argument for his rights. I’m going to make a political argument for why our country would

With minor exceptions, almost everywhere one goes that is a public facility like airports, bus and railroad stations, as well as most private venues like the lobbies of banks and corporate towers and even bars and restaurants, CNN is the default cable news network hanging Big Brother-like on the wall for all to see and believe.

In the wake of President Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital last week, the “experts” crowding the media predicted strategic calamity: Vast, violent protests and a wave of terror would sweep the Muslim world in the coming days. Instead, the largest demonstration anywhere this weekend was the funeral procession for Johnny Hallyday, the “French Elvis.” Nothing in the Middle East came close. We have witnessed, yet again, the carefully phrased anti-Semitism of the pristinely educated; the global left’s fanatical pro-Palestinian bias; and the media’s yearning for career-making disasters. Rather than waves of protest, the waiting world got tepid statements of disapproval from

Donald Trump´s first year in office has been, to put it mildly, a rocky one. But it can be argued that he´s ending it on an upswing. Congress is likely to soon pass a tax reform bill. Robert Mueller´s "Russia Squad" is getting its first round of bad press. Judge Roy Moore is favored to win next week´s Senate election in Alabama with Trump´s support. The Supreme Court has acquiesced to Trump´s travel ban for now (while it waits for the lower courts to rule).

Brock’s Media Matters for America is a registered 501(c)3 non-profit organization that has tax-exempt status. That tax-exempt status comes with an important caveat: the non-profit is barred from participating in political activity–funding or otherwise–that is in support or opposition to a candidate for office.

Here they go again — the news media, that is, racing to run stories meant to discredit President Trump’s 2016 election victory, only to wind up with egg on their faces. Friday, it was CNN’s turn to be caught spreading a false yarn — this one trying to link Team Trump with WikiLeaks and its supposed efforts, along with the Russians, to throw last year’s election to Trump. On Sept. 4, 2016, CNN said, Donald Trump Jr. got an e-mail tipping him off to WikiLeaks material that wasn’t yet public. That sure sounds like an effort to collude. Trouble is, the e-mail was actually dated Sept. 14 — a full 10 days later and after WikiLeaks

DETROIT – Michigan´s Republican governor announced Friday that Democrat John Conyers´ congressional seat will not be filled until the regularly scheduled November election, leaving it vacant for nearly a year. Gov. Rick Snyder decided the post will be listed twice on the August primary and November general election ballots. While unlikely, it is possible voters could choose one candidate to fill the vacancy until January 2019 and elect another to a full two-year term after that. It is unusual for a congressional district to stay vacant for so long, according to a review of roughly 100 vacancies and successors listed on

Trump, Mattis turn military loose on ISIS,

BAGHDAD – Hundreds of ISIS fighters had just been chased out of a northern Syrian city and were fleeing through the desert in long convoys, presenting an easy target to U.S. A-10 "warthogs." But the orders to bomb the black-clad jihadists never came, and the terrorists melted into their caliphate -- living to fight another day. The events came in August 2016, even as then-Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump was vowing on the campaign trail to let generals in his administration crush the organization that, under President Obama, had grown from the “jayvee team” to the world’s most feared terrorist organization.

An award-winning U.S. diplomat who was seen as a rising star at the State Department has issued a scathing resignation letter, accusing Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and the Donald Trump administration of undercutting the State Department and damaging America’s influence in the world. Elizabeth Shackelford, who most recently served as a political officer based in Nairobi for the U.S. mission to Somalia, wrote to Tillerson that she reluctantly had decided to quit because the administration had abandoned human rights as a priority and shown disdain for the State Department’s diplomatic work,

Prior to President Donald Trump’s visit to the opening of the Mississippi Civil Rights Museum today, Fox & Friends brought on Trump supporter and former sheriff David Clarke to discuss the president’s appearance. And things got very tense very fast. Right off the bat, co-host Pete Hegseth asked Clarke what he thought about Rep. John Lewis (D-GA), a civil rights icon, deciding not to attend the opening because Trump would be in attendance. Clarke reacted by immediately dismissing Lewis. “John who?” Clarke mocking stated. “John Lewis — he was bloodied on the Selma bridge, Sheriff, when trying to protest voting

Sen. Richard Shelby says he wants a Republican elected to the Senate on Tuesday to represent Alabama, but that he didn’t vote for GOP candidate Roy Moore in the special election. The Alabama Republican said he’s already cast his ballot, and that he chose a write-in candidate. “I’d rather see the Republican win, but I’d rather see a Republican write-in. I couldn’t vote for Roy Moore. I didn’t vote for Roy Moore,” Shelby told CNN’s Jake Tapper on “State of the Union.” Moore has been accused of pursuing sexual relationships with teenagers when he was in his 30s. In some

Short of impeaching President Trump, does anything excite Democrats, the Resistance, and NeverTrumpers like the prospect of the president firing special counsel Robert Mueller? Firing Mueller would, or course, be the quickest way for Trump to get impeached, which might explain a certain air of anticipation in discussions of whether — some prefer to say when -- Trump will sack the prosecutor leading the Trump-Russia investigation.There has been a lot of news and commentary recently interpreting criticism of Mueller by a number of pro-Trump media voices as an effort to encourage Trump to fire Mueller, or lay the groundwork for

California Gov. Jerry Brown (D) says President Trump´s stance on climate change demonstrates that he does not appear to fear the "wrath of God" or have any regard for the "existential consequences" of his climate change policies. “I don’t think President Trump has a fear of the Lord, the fear of the wrath of God, which leads one to more humility ... this is such a reckless disregard for the truth and for the existential consequences that can be unleashed,” Brown said in an interview on CBS´s "60 Minutes," which is set to air on Sunday. Brown, who previously studied to become

Loose dentures? More like loose screws. Donald Trump was slurring his words pretty good last week for a guy who fancied himself an expert when it came to Hillary Clinton’s alleged brain damage. What would he make of his own slurred speech and bizarre behavior? brain tumor from the weight of that massive combover sitting on top of his head like a live farm animal? Simply slurred speech because his thoughts are so fantastic that his mouth can’t keep up?

WASHINGTON — Around 5:30 each morning, President Trump wakes and tunes into the television in the White House’s master bedroom. He flips to CNN for news, moves to “Fox & Friends” for comfort and messaging ideas, and sometimes watches MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” because, friends suspect, it fires him up for the day. Energized, infuriated — often a gumbo of both — Mr. Trump grabs his iPhone. Sometimes he tweets while propped on his pillow, according to aides. Other times he tweets from the den next door, watching another television. Less frequently, he makes his way up the hall to the
