Manafort sues DOJ, Mueller
over Russia probe authority

CNN, by Evan Perez

Original Article

Posted By:MissMolly, 1/3/2018 4:03:17 PM

Paul Manafort, the former Trump campaign chairman indicted on money laundering and other charges, filed a lawsuit challenging the broad authority of special counsel Robert Mueller and alleging the Justice Department violated the law in appointing Mueller. The suit brought Wednesday in US District Court in Washington where Manafort and another former Trump campaign aide are charged, challenges Mueller´s decision to charge Manafort with alleged crimes that they say have nothing to do with the 2016 campaign, but rather relate to lucrative lobbying work Manafort and his deputy did for a former Russia-friendly government in Ukraine. That work ended in 2014,

I have seen a photo of Manafort sticking a big wad of chewing gum under his desk.

Mueller will nail him for that.

A DOJ spokesman says the suit is frivolous. So let the District Court dismiss it. That will get it to the Supreme Court more quickly.

Fabulous! This will shake out Rosenschwein, Mueller, and Comey.
Troubled about Sessions. Why did he write into law again, following Holder, that Police, FBI, etc. can enter your home without a search warrant?
The way the FBI entered Manafort´s home in the middle of the night and bodily searched his wife, who was in bed, is something the Gestapo would do!

It looks like Mueller went a Millionaire too far.Manafort has the resources to cahllage Mueller and his witch hunt. And regardless how much the DOJ says its a frivolous suit (interesting, usually goobernment agencies say they don´t comment on ongoing suits. Why is this different?), Mueller and his staff will have to devote resources to defend themselves. And a judge just might aske for Mueller and his team to explain things. Like FISA data used to spy on Manafort and the fake dossier used to justify it. It could prve Mueller and his team are the real criminals. They will have to answer subpoenas and it will not be a toothless Congressional subpoena. I bet Mueller and his dmeigodd stafff never saw this coming.

Washington Examiner [DC], by Paul Moreno    Original Article

President Trump nominated his justice quickly; Republican senators need to act just as fast. If history tells us anything, it’s that they may not get another chance, even if Trump is re-elected in 2020. Clarence Thomas is now the only Supreme Court justice nominated by a president of one party and confirmed (narrowly) by a Senate controlled by the other party. The rest were appointed and confirmed in the brief periods when one party controlled both the White House and the Senate. Former President Barack Obama got Justice Elena Kagan and Justice Sonia Sotomayor through in the first half of his first

An art gallery in Portland, Oregon, removed a window drawing that depicts President Donald Trump being beheaded ISIS style. The founder of One Grand Gallery in the Northwest city told KPTV-TV that he took down the controversial drawing after threats from Trump supporters and a request from his landlord. The gallery founder asked to remain anonymous for fear that someone would try to harm him. The horrific image shows a man whose face is concealed holding Trump’s head with one hand. In the other hand, he is holding a knife to the throat of Trump, who is bleeding profusely from

Trump and Putin’s OJ-like search
for the ‘real’ meddling culprits
New York Post, by Benny Avni    Original Article
Posted By: MissMolly- 7/17/2018 4:43:38     Post Reply
When did OJ become POTUS? President Trump told a Helsinki press conference Monday that Russian strongman Vladimir Putin has an “interesting idea” about resolving questions on election meddling in the 2016 election: create a joint American-Russian committee on inquiry. That is, Moscow and Washington will together investigate whether Russian agents were responsible for hacking the DNC computers, as a US prosecutor answerable to Trump alleged late last week. They’ll find who’s responsible for other election shenanigans, which Trump’s top intel officials believe to be Russia’s handiwork. In other words, Putin — like OJ Simpson after his acquittal — will be looking for the

The corporate owners of the Mandalay Bay casino filed suit against the victims of last year’s Las Vegas concert mass shooting, claiming it has no liability for the massacre, according to a published report on Monday. MGM Resorts International went to federal courts in Nevada and California and took on more than 1,000 shooting victims, saying claims against the hotel giant “must be dismissed.” “Plaintiffs have no liability of any kind to defendants,” the complaints argue, according to the Las Vegas Review-Journal. Las Vegas lawyer Robert Eglet, who is representing several victims, told the paper that the hotel’s unusual action is a pre-emptive

U.S. immigration officials took aim at San Francisco’s sanctuary city law Monday in the case of the San Mateo man accused of being the “Rideshare Rapist.” In a statement, the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency said the city’s policy of not honoring ICE holds “shields criminal aliens who prey on the community.” The suspect, Orlando Vilchez Lazo, 36, is being held in jail in San Francisco in lieu of $4.2 million bail and faces life in prison in connection with the rapes of four women who got into his car believing him to be a ride-hail driver, police said. Immigration officials said

SAN DIEGO, Calif. — A federal judge on Monday ordered a temporary halt to any deportations of immigrant families who were reunited after being separated by the Trump administration at the border. U.S. District Judge Dana Sabraw imposed a delay of at least a week after a request from the American Civil Liberties Union, which cited "persistent and increasing rumors ... that mass deportations may be carried out imminently and immediately upon reunification." Justice Department attorney Scott Stewart opposed the delay but did not address the rumors in court. He said he would respond later in writing. The judge gave the

Judi James, author and body language expert, told Express.co.uk the duo are not as friendly as the warm words from Trump would have you believe.

Veni, vidi, vici. That’s what Trump would have tweeted en route to a weekend of golf at his courses in Scotland had he not forgotten his high school Latin. Traditional diplomat Nicholas Burns, former U.S. ambassador to NATO, says “The president treated the NATO allies almost with contempt.” Delete “almost” and Burns has it right. But the tone of Trump’s tweets and comments are best understood as the exasperation of this American president who wants to succeed where his predecessors failed—ending that part of the post-World War II settlement that disadvantages America. And if that means abandoning traditional diplomacy in

Yesterday’s hearing on Capitol Hill featuring FBI agent Peter Strzok quickly turned into a political firefight among lawmakers, but overall it was a damning illustration of the toxic culture that exists within the Washington, D.C., beltway. At one point, Oversight Committee Chairman Trey Gowdy confronted the former investigator over some anti-Trump texts he had sent. In 2016, after FBI lawyer Lisa Page asked Strzok if Trump would ever become the president, his response was, “No. No he won’t. We’ll stop it.” Republican committee members read a number of Strzok’s vitriolic texts about Donald Trump and his supporters, and at one point

Hillary Clinton still thinks she is relevant. This week Hillary spoke in Pittsburg to the American Federation of Teachers. Since her 2016 lost to an utterly political outsider in President Trump, Hillary has not swayed far from the opportunity to make news headlines or receive a cool $250,000 just for giving her inept opinion on something. Now, she is trying to tell others what is American. During her speech, Clinton said that Trump is “trying to rip the heart out of America.” She went on to say that a test of a society is how we treat our most vulnerable, old

Former CIA Director John Brennan continued Tuesday to criticize President Trump’s performance at the Helsinki summit, saying Mr. Trump could have potentially risked intelligence capabilities during his private meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin and the intel community might begin to withhold intelligence from Mr. Trump. In light of Mr. Trump’s comments about the intelligence community, Mr. Brennan said “there very well might be” a shift in the covert community to “withhold vital intelligence” in order to protect that information. “Dan Coats and Gina Haspel need to be on top of their game now and speak truth to power,” he

When Presidents Trump and Vladimir Putin ended their joint press conference in Helsinki, the punditocracy predictably swarmed all over it like ants around a pile of crumbs. Was Trump winking at Putin? Did he really say he believes Putin more than he believes Robert Mueller about whether Russia interfered in the 2016 election? Former Gus Hall enthusiast John Brennan, off his meds again, tweeted that the presser was “treasonous.” Professional chatterer Anderson Cooper said it was “perhaps one of the most disgraceful performances by an American president at a summit.” Every phrase, every gesture of the event will be picked

There is an American besides President Donald Trump who was privy to the two-hour private meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin – a government translator who sat in on the entire meeting. Marina Gross, a State Department translator, was pictured along with Trump, Putin, and Putin´s translator at their Helsinki summit. Interest in her role has only grown, after furious critics accused Trump of ´treason´ for failing to push Putin publicly in any way at their Helsinki summit. It was after that meeting that Trump emerged only to engage in a disastrous press conference where he took Putin´s denial of election interference over

President Trump has now been in office a year and a quarter. President Trump’s results when compared to those of President Obama at the same time are stunning. In every economic measurement, President Trump far out-performs President Obama. The mainstream media and Democrat Party continue to smear President Trump with the fake Russia collusion narrative. In doing so they also continue to ignore President Trump’s many accomplishments. When compared to Obama [and most presidents], President Trump’s efforts to shore up the economy are historic.

Was Russia´s effort to interfere in the 2016 election the most important issue on the table at President Trump´s Helsinki summit with Vladimir Putin? No. But it´s not an unimportant issue, either, and Trump knew the American press is obsessed with it. So he knew it would play a big role in the Trump-Putin post-summit news conference. There are all sorts of aspects to the Trump-Russia affair, but in light of special counsel Robert Mueller´s decision to indict 12 Russian intelligence agents on the Friday before the Monday summit, the president also knew reporters would want to hear him specifically affirm
