Mueller, McCabe & Rosenstein Now Allegedly Tied to Cover-Up and Bribery

Justice Department officials in the District of Maryland announced that Mark Lambert of Mount Airy, Maryland had been indicted on 11 counts related to “bribery, kickbacks and money laundering.”

The indictment show that Lambert and may others from Transport Logistics International (TLI) were involved in several counts of bribery, money laundering, and kick backs with Russian nuclear official Vadim Mikerin. This was al orchestrated to win business advantages with TENEX – a Kremlin state-owned energy company which owns Uranium One.

TLI would have been the company that ostensibly moved all of the uranium from the U1 deal, but an FBI undercover mole inside the Russian nuclear industry gathered extensive evidence of corruption and blew the scheme wide open.

What does all of that have to do with Robert Mueller?

Zero Hedge says: Robert Mueller’s FBI had been investigating the scheme since at least 2008 – with retiring Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe assigned to the ongoing investigation which was hidden from the Committee on Foreign Investments in the United States (CFIUS). Had they known, the committee never would have approved the Uranium One deal with TENEX’s parent company, Rosatom. 

Four individuals ended up being prosecuted and handed plea agreements after the Uranium One deal was approved.

Who were the prosecuting DOJ attorneys? Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and Robert Mueller’s top investigator in the Trump-Russia probe, Andrew Weissman, the same guy who applauded and praised former acting Attorney General Sally Yates for defying Trump.

Then it gets even more odd…

According to this report from The Hill, when the time came to charge former Russian uranium industry executive Vadim Mikerinn, the Justice Department failed to call on the deal’s secret informant, William D. Campbell.

Officials told The Hill that prosecutors working for Rosenstein first interviewed Campbell, the informant, after they had already filed a sealed criminal complaint against Mikerin in July 2014.

“While he was Maryland’s chief federal prosecutor, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein’s office failed to interview the undercover informant in the FBI’s Russian nuclear bribery case before it filed criminal charges in the case in 2014, officials told The Hill,” the report says.

Campbell’s lawyer, Victoria Toensing, confirmed the Justice officials’ account.

“The first time Mr. Campbell was interviewed by the U.S. Attorney’s office was after the criminal complaint was filed, and he was never brought before the grand jury before the indictment,” she told The Hill.

Harvard Law professor Alan Dershowitz finds this to be quite troubling, telling The Hill, “I’ve never heard of such a case unless the victim is dead. I’ve never heard of prosecutors making a major case and not talking to the victim before you made it, especially when he was available to them through the FBI.”

“It is negligence, and I’m sure there will be internal issues with the Justice Department and U.S. attorney for making such an obvious mistake,” Dershowitz continued.

BREAKING: This Russian Lawyer Just Embarrassingly Threw Mueller Under The Bus

The Special Counsel headed by Robert Mueller has stirred up massive controversy over the last year for the way the investigation has been conducted. We’ve yet to see a shred of evidence proving the Donald Trump campaign colluded with the Russian government in any way, shape or form. But that hasn’t slowed anything down.

Not only did Mueller stack the probe with Hillary Clinton donors, he’s also had Peter Strzok removed from the probe after revelations of the anti-Trump texts and hesitation to join the Mueller investigation went public.

Now, Natalia Veselnitskaya, a well-connected Russian lawyer who made headlines after it was revealed she had a meeting with Donald Trump Jr., Jared Kushner and Paul Manafort in June 2016, has claimed Mueller isn’t even searching for truth, otherwise he would’ve interviewed her. She had promised to offer dirt on Hillary prior to the meeting in June of 2016 which lead to the meeting.

 

As reported by The Daily Caller via the Associated Press:

“At the time of her 2016 meeting at Trump Tower, she was defending Prevezon against charges it had engaged in money laundering from a $230 million Russian tax fraud scheme,” AP explains. Team Trump has dismissed allegations that the meeting constituted “collusion” with Russia.

While the Senate Intelligence Committee spoke with Veselnitskaya in Berlin for three hours about the meeting, Mueller’s team seems conspicuously uninterested in what she has to say.

AP’s report reveals some reasons that Mueller might not be anxious to talk with her: She made clear in her testimony to the Senate committee that she was not working for the Russian government and that she believes the notorious unverified and salacious Steele dossier on Trump is “absolute nonsense”:

The Associated Press interviewed Veselnitskaya, going in depth on the meeting and the Mueller probe. In which, she called the Hillary Clinton paid for dossier “absolute non-sense.”

The investigators mainly wanted to know about Trump Tower meeting, she said. Veselnitskaya said she repeated her previous statements about it, insisting that she was not linked to the Russian government and merely wanted to discuss sanctions against Russia.

Veselnitskaya’s said the Berlin interview also focused on information in memos compiled by a former British spy whose work was funded by the Democratic National Committee and Clinton’s campaign. The dossier contains numerous allegations of Russian ties to Trump, his associates and the Trump campaign.

Veselnitskaya dismissed the dossier as “absolute nonsense.” She insisted that Glenn Simpson, whose firm Fusion GPS was hired to compile the dossier and who was questioned by the House Intelligence Committee in January, had been “framed.”

Not to mention, the Mueller probe hasn’t interviewed Julian Assange of Wikileaks, the man who released the “hacked” DNC emails. Democrats have claimed Russia hacked their server, despite a refusal to turn their email sever over to the FBI for investigation.

The dossier has been widely criticized for being a total fabrication paid for by Hillary and the Democrats in order to obtain a fraudulent FISA abuse warrant on the Trump campaign.

Yesterday at I Love My Freedom, we reported on Devin Nunes’ comments claiming there was no official intel provided before the Trump campaign was spied on.

Nunes stated, “This is really important to us because the intelligence investigation uses the tools of our intelligence services that are not supposed to be used on American citizens.

It’s only a matter of time before the entire witch hunt investigation totally backfires on the Democrats….

BOOM: Trump Just Hired Giuliani To ‘Negotiate An End’ To Mueller Probe

Former Mayor of New York and accomplished former prosecutor, Rudolph W. Giuliani, told The Washington Post on Thursday that he has joined the president’s legal team dealing with the ongoing special counsel probe. Giuliani has been a longtime friend and ally of President Trump.

Giuliani spoke in an interview, “I’m doing it because I hope we can negotiate an end to this for the good of the country and because I have high regard for the president and for Bob Mueller.”

Trump attorney Jay Sekulow announced Thursday that Giuliani is joining the team along with a couple other former federal prosecutors, Jane Serene Raskin and Marty Raskin. They currently run a Florida-based law firm together.

Trump said in a statement “Rudy is great! He has been my friend for a long time and wants to get this matter quickly resolved for the good of the country.”

Trump’s legal team has fought to recruit new members after multiple law firms turned the job down. Many citing various conflicts of interest in defending the President. Giuliani said he has been speaking with Trump for weeks about joining the group of legal advisers, notably having a half hour meeting with the president at Mar-a-Lago this week.

Giuliani spoke out against the idea that Trump ever intended to fire Mueller. He claimed the President never indicated he was considering such a move — knowing it to be “counterproductive.” Removing Mueller would further prolong the investigation, adding that “Bob is the best we can do”.

Trump supporters immediately praised the decision on Twitter:

Do you think Giuliani will help facilitate an end to the ‘witch hunt’??

BOMBSHELL: Trump WILL FIRE Mueller After Evidence Found In Comey Memos – Get Ready For Riots!

Image result for Trump ,Mueller and Comey

Former FBI Director James Comey has some serious questions to answer after a report yesterday revealed he might have leaked two memos which documented his conversations with President Donald Trump which were classified.

According to a report by the Wall Street Journal, the fired FBI director leaked at least two memos which on top of confirming there was no collusion between Russia and the President, also contained classified information. The leak was to a friend who is a former federal prosecutor and a professor at Columbia. The memos documented the private conversations he had with President Trump during his early days in office.

His leaking of the classified memos is currently under investigation by the Justice Department.

According to the report, Comey himself redacted elements from one of the memos that he allegedly knew to be classified before handing them over to his friend Daniel C. Richman. Although Comey reportedly determined that the other memo contained “no classified information,” FBI officials later upgraded it to “confidential.” Comey implied to senators during his June 8 hearing that the memos he gave to Richman on May 15 were not classified on the date he shared them.

This revelation of Comey’s leaking of classified notes comes after the Justice Department handed his memos to House lawmakers on Thursday. Of the seven notes that were handed over, four actually contained classified information. Comey apparently gave his friend at least two of those classified memos.

The inspector general has the ability to refer Comey to the Justice Department for criminal charges, as he did with former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe earlier this week and President Trump has indicated that he would not let Comey’s leaking go lightly.

Here is more on these memos via The Federalist:

“Newly released memos written by former FBI director James Comey indicate that an early 2017 briefing for then-President-elect Donald Trump about the contents of an infamous dossier was held so it could be leaked to media outlets eager to report on the dossier’s allegations. In multiple memos, Comey specifically mentioned that CNN had the dossier and wanted a “news hook” that would enable the network to report on its most salacious allegations even though they had not been verified.

“I said the Russians allegedly had tapes involving him and prostitutes at the Presidential Suite at the Ritz Carlton in Moscow from about 2013,” Comey wrote of his conversation with Trump in a classified memo that was released in redacted form late Thursday. “I said I wasn’t saying this was true, only that I wanted him to know both that it had been reported and that the reports were in many hands.”

No media organizations had reported the allegations at the time Comey briefed Trump.

“I said media like CNN had them and were looking for a news hook,” Comey added in his memo about the briefing with Trump on January 6, 2017.

In another classified memo written on January 28, 2017, Comey wrote that in a separate meeting Trump mentioned the allegation about the alleged tape of prostitutes at a hotel and called it “fake news.”

“I explained again why I had thought it important that he know about it,” Comey wrote. “I also explained that one of the reasons we told him was that the media, CNN in particular, was telling us they were about to run with it.”

Of the many thousands of articles promoting a still-unproven theory of treasonous collusion between President Donald Trump and Russia, few were as significant as CNN’s January 10 story “Intel chiefs presented Trump with claims of Russian efforts to compromise him.” Extremely well-placed sources told CNN that the Obama administration’s top intelligence appointees had briefed Obama, Biden, and Trump all about a dossier they took incredibly seriously and considered credible. And it sounded really bad, as the headline indicated.

“Russian operatives claim to have compromising personal and financial information about Mr. Trump,” CNN declared. BuzzFeed published the actual dossier within minutes of CNN’s story going live, showing the world that the dossier was riddled with salacious gossip that lacked even a possibility of corroboration.

Keep in mind that nothing we now know about the dossier had been reported at the time. It wasn’t yet reported that it was used by the FBI to provide a substantial basis to wiretap at least one Trump affiliate despite the fact it was unverified. It wasn’t yet reported that the product was bought and paid for as a Hillary Clinton campaign operation, or that it was secretly funded by the DNC using a law firm as a pass-through to hide its provenance in federal campaign filings. It wasn’t yet reported that its author’s working relationship with the FBI was terminated because he had lied to the agency about how he wouldn’t talk to the media.

After nearly a year of wrangling, the seven memos written by Comey were finally handed over on Thursday to Congress, which oversees the operation and funding of the FBI and the Department of Justice (DOJ). The memos purport to show Comey’s version of his interactions with the president before Comey was fired last May. According to Daniel Richman, the original recipient of Comey’s leaks who now claims to be his personal attorney, Comey gave him four memos. Four of the seven memos are classified, meaning that at least one of the memos he leaked was classified. By his own account, Comey orchestrated these leaks to the media in order to launch an aggressive special counsel to avenge his firing by Trump in May 2017. The memos given to Congress on Thursday were quickly leaked to the media.

The first memo was sent on January 7, 2017, to FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, General Counsel James Baker, and James Rybicki, Comey’s chief of staff. McCabe has since been fired from the FBI and referred to DOJ for criminal prosecution for repeatedly lying under oath about leaking. Baker was reassigned. And Rybicki was replaced in January of 2018.

There are two things in the memo that are worth highlighting as relate to that blockbuster CNN story from January 10, 2017.

First, Comey claims that briefing the president-elect was the brainchild of Director of National Intelligence James Clapper.

“I said there was something that Clapper wanted me to speak to the [president-elect] about alone or in a very small group,” Comey wrote. More on that in a bit.

“I then executed the session exactly as I had planned,” Comey noted before going into details of what he claimed he told the president-elect. He wrote that he told him about the now-infamous prostitute pee-pee videotape claims contained in the dossier. Then he wrote:

“I said I wasn’t saying this was true, only that I wanted him to know both that it had been reported and that the reports were in many hands. I said media like CNN had them and were looking for a news hook. I said it was important that we not give them the excuses to write that the FBI has the material or [REDACTED] and that we were keeping it very close-hold. He said he couldn’t believe they hadn’t gone with it. I said it was inflammatory stuff that they would get killed for reporting straight up from the source reports.

Such a close-hold that someone at a very high level in the Obama administration gave the information to CNN almost immediately. CNN broke the news of the dossier and Comey’s briefing of the president just four days later.

With Comey claiming that Clapper wanted him to brief POTUS, the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence final report on Russia has something of interest. The report, which was downplayed and panned by CNN, included a finding of interest related to discussions of the dossier with the media:

Finding #44: Former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, now a CNN national security analyst, provided inconsistent testimony to the Committee about his contacts with the media, including CNN.”

So Comey, at Clapper’s expressed behest, told Trump that CNN was “looking for a news hook” to publish dossier allegations. He said this in the briefing of Trump that almost immediately leaked to CNN, which provided them the very news hook they sought and needed.

This briefing, and the leaking of it, legitimized the dossier, which touched off the Russia hysteria. That hysteria led to a full-fledged media freakout. During the freakout, Comey deliberately refused to say in public what he acknowledged repeatedly in private — that the President of the United States was not under investigation. He even noted in his memos that he told the president at least three times that he was not under investigation. Comey’s refusal to admit publicly what he kept telling people privately led to his firing.

That led to Comey leaking multiple memos in order to get a special counsel appointed out of revenge. That special counsel has utterly distracted multiple agencies and embroiled all three branches of government at the highest levels. All over a document that was secretly funded by Hillary Clinton and the DNC, contracted by a Democrat research firm with ties to the Kremlin, and authored by a shady foreign spy whose relationship with the FBI was terminated because he lied to them.”

This is what the swamp does. They stick together in a fight to take out a sitting president who is not one of them!

MAJOR LEAGUES: Giuliani Just Stepped On The Field To Crush Mueller For What He Did

Image result for MAJOR LEAGUES: Giuliani Just Stepped On The Field To Crush Mueller For What He Did

Donald Trump just signed an ace pitcher and he’s about to take the mound to throw a no-hitter in the game against Special Counsel Robert Mueller and the investigation. The new star taking over is former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani to join Trump’s legal team and work towards closing up Mueller’s investigation with the Russian collusion conspiracy. They hope to close the investigation in the next week or so.

It’s reported that Giuliani has a good relationship with Mueller, so they might be able to figure out a working conclusion on the investigation. Giuliani might face some backlash if he doesn’t get the job done in the proposed “week or two.” Some politicians might pose a threat to his progress, but it’s hopeful to be resolved sooner than later.

If the investigation isn’t solved soon, then it will simply go on for ages and nothing will be accomplished by Mueller. He will have spent the last year or so wasting time with nothing-burgers that come with no toppings. Anyone who interferes with the President of the United States of America, in ways that prohibit accomplishments, is not doing a good job.

The Daily Wire reported more details on the situation with Giuliani joining the all-star lineup to win the game against the conspired Russian collusion theory: “Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani joined President Donald Trump’s legal team and said that he is aiming to bring Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation to an end within the next “week or two.”

Giuliani had said earlier in the day that he was joining Trump’s legal team specifically to help wrap up Mueller’s Russia investigation because it was for “the good of the country.”

“I’m going to join the legal team to try to bring this to a resolution,” Giuliani told the New York Post. “The country deserves it.”

Giuliani noted that he has had a long relationship Mueller, a man that he said he greatly “respect[s],” and that he’s done a good job.

“I don’t know yet what’s outstanding. But I don’t think it’s going to take more than a week or two to get a resolution,” Giuliani said. “I’m going to ask Mueller, ‘What do you need to wrap it up?’”

Giuliani would not discuss whether or not Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein might be fired by Trump, stating, “I’m not involved in anything about those issues. My advice on Mueller has been this: He should be allowed to do his job, he’s entitled to do his job.”

The Justice Department’s Office of the Inspector General released Comey’s memos to Congress today, a move that top Democrat on the House Judiciary Committee, Rep. Jerrold Nadler (D-NY), said could lead to Rosenstein being “being placed in contempt of Congress and the special counsel investigation of being shut down.”

Trump’s administration needs teammates and teamwork, not opponents who work against him and halt any progress made by the American presidency. Trump’s team deserve people who place America first and foremost, fighting for the values and freedom that the American citizens rightfully deserve.

President Trump needs his team to be supportive, provide constructive criticism, work together, and do things to America that we haven’t seen before that brings America to higher levels of success than we’ve ever seen before.

The American citizens are in the middle of the most Presidency that we have ever seen. We have a President with no political experience who tackled Hillary Clinton, a seasoned veteran of politics, in a grueling 2016 election. That election from over a year ago still has people protesting and resisting. People who fight against the President himself are serving no good purpose to the country. People who object to politics, laws, and policy changes put in place are fine, but they have to use their vote to speak and their voice to have meaningful conversations in order to get us to a great compromise.

Is Mueller is wasting his time with the Russian investigation?

MUELLER GETS PUNTED BY THE SENATE

Mueller

The Senate Judiciary Committee chaired by Senator Chuck Grassley who claimed this week he would hold a vote on the Mueller protection bill is going to have to change his plans.

On Thursday Sen. Grassley said, “We will hold this bill over today at the request of several members of the committee.”

Despite “bipartisan” support it only takes one person on the committee to delay the bill, several members of the committee have expressed their grievances with the legislation. As a result, the vote has been moved to next week.

But that is the least of the bill’s problems.

The Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has said that he will not give the bill a committee vote.

“I’m the one who decides what we take to the floor, that’s my responsibility as the majority leader, and we will not be having this on the floor of the Senate,” he said.

It appears that the Mueller protection bill is headed for the backburner soon to be forgotten.

At Manafort Hearing, Judge Weighs Scope of Mueller’s Authority

Paul Manafort, right, who was then the Trump campaign manager, being interviewed at the Republican National Convention in July.

WASHINGTON—A federal judge expressed doubt Thursday over efforts by former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort to have criminal charges against him dropped, but she appeared more receptive to his request to dismiss one of the counts.

At a sometimes testy hearing over three hours, U.S. District Judge Amy Berman Jackson questioned lawyers for Mr. Manafort and special counsel Robert Mueller, who has charged Mr. Manafort in Washington and Virginia with failing to report his work for the government of Ukraine between 2006 and 2015 and with not paying taxes on the millions of dollars he allegedly earned from that work.

Mr. Manafort has pleaded not guilty and filed motions to dismiss both cases, arguing that they fall outside the bounds of Mr. Mueller’s task of investigating Russian meddling in the 2016 election. Mr. Manafort claims Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein’s order appointing Mr. Mueller did not give the special counsel authority to investigate the allegations covered in the Manafort indictments.

Judge Jackson, who is overseeing the Washington case, said in court she found it unlikely that Mr. Rosenstein would have appointed Mr. Mueller without explaining what matters he would be examining.

“You’re telling me he didn’t tell him what it was about?” she asked Mr. Manafort’s lawyer, Kevin Downing, her voice rising.

Judge Jackson also said Mr. Manafort appeared to be basing his argument on internal Justice Department regulations governing the appointment of a special counsel that are generally meant to help organize agency processes, not to provide a basis for defendants to challenge their cases.

“Why does that matter in a court of law?” she said.

In court papers, Mr. Mueller’s lawyers have said they have authorization to investigate the Manafort charges, citing among other things an August memo from Mr. Rosenstein laying out avenues of inquiry. Mr. Mueller’s office said the probe “would naturally cover ties that a former Trump campaign manager had to Russian-associated political operatives, Russian-backed politicians, and Russian oligarchs.”

In court on Thursday, Mr. Downing took issue with the timing of the Rosenstein memo, noting that it came months after Mr. Mueller’s appointment in May 2017 and after related search warrants had been executed.

“It seems to me to be very much an after-the-fact memo,” Mr. Downing said.

Judge Berman appeared more receptive, however, to another argument from Mr. Manafort’s legal team, that two of the counts in the indictment against Mr. Manafort essentially charge him with the same crime.

Mr. Manafort was charged with lying about his lobbying work in violation of the Foreign Agents Registration Act. He was also charged with lying about that work in violation of a law that forbids false statements to the federal government.

A prosecution on both counts, Mr. Manafort’s lawyers argued, would seek to punish him twice for the same alleged offense.

In considering that motion, Judge Jackson had pointed questions for Mr. Mueller’s lawyers, asking why the two charges were not duplicative. An attorney with the special counsel’s office said the charges were distinct, and that conduct that violated one law did not always violate the other.

Judge Jackson also considered a third argument from Mr. Manafort’s defense team, seeking to challenge a count of money laundering.

Mr. Manafort is charged with laundering millions of dollars that he allegedly earned through his unregistered Ukraine work. Mr. Manafort’s team argued that the work itself was lawful, so money earned from it isn’t necessarily tainted.

Judge Jackson said that question appeared to be one for a jury to decide, rather than her.

Senate Puts Forward Bill To Put Mueller Above President Trump … That’s When McConnell Puts His Foot Down

Image result for Senate Puts Forward Bill To Put Mueller Above President Trump … That’s When McConnell Puts His Foot Down

On Tuesday, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell dodged a bipartisan effort that would protect special counsel Robert Mueller and his job on the Trump investigation. McConnell explained that he would not be holding a floor vote on this piece of legislation, even if the Senate Judiciary Committee approves it next week.

McConnell explained that the bill is important because President Trump won’t be the one to fire Mueller.

McConnell stated while appearing on Fox News, “We’ll not be having this on the floor of the Senate.”

The Senate Majority Leader’s comments came during a time of serious opposition to the bill amongst members of his own caucus. Multiple GOP senators explained that they feel that the bill is unconstitutional, while other senators felt that it just isn’t good politics to tell President Trump what to do, even comparing the piece of legislation to “poking the bear.”

The piece of legislation was introduced last week, around the same time that Trump publicly condemned Mueller. Trump had stated that the investigation being conducted by Mueller is “an attack on our country.” He also called the probe “corrupt.”

President Trump has also considered firing the man overseeing the Trump investigation, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein.

It was only a day after Trump’s critique that Republicans Thom Tillis of North Carolina and Lindsey Graham of South Carolina put two bits together that they had introduced last summer in order to protect special counsels. The bill was introduced by the two Republicans along with Democratic Sens. Chris Coons of Delaware and Cory Booker of New Jersey. Then, Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley, a Republican, explained that his committee would be voting on the bill.

Associated Press reported:

The legislation would give any special counsel a 10-day window to seek expedited judicial review of a firing, and would put into law existing Justice Department regulations that require a firing to be for “good cause.”

Democrats immediately jumped on the legislation, but many Republicans have been cool to it.

At least three of the 11 GOP members of the Judiciary panel have said they will vote against it and another five have said they have questions about its constitutionality. Grassley is one of those with concerns, but said he felt obligated to hold a vote.

Republicans off the committee had questions too — and some acknowledged that it could be politically difficult.

On Tuesday, South Dakota Senator Mike Rounds stated that the President should be the one to make the decision on his own. He also stated that Trump should be the one responsible for the consequences that come along with the decision.

“I think having Congress tell him what we believe he should do in this case is simply poking the bear, and I’d just prefer not to do that,” Rounds stated.

Oklahoma Sen. Jim Lankford felt that the bill was a “political distraction.”

“You create this whole constitutional political stir over something that is not going to happen,” he stated.

Other lawmakers felt that there really was no point.

Louisiana Senator and a member of the Judiciary panel, John Kennedy, explained, “It’s about as popular as cholera with the leader in the Senate and it’s about as popular as malaria in the House,” said Louisiana Sen. John Kennedy, a member of the Judiciary panel. “I think most people think we’re picking an unnecessary fight with the president.”

Coons, who is a lawyer, felt that the multiple courts have enforced very similar statues for special counsels in the past. He stated, “If I were convinced this were unconstitutional, I would not be moving it.”

During a hearing for the two separate bills in September, prior to them being combined, scholars were split about whether or not the bills were constitutional. Some had big concerns about letting the judicial branch have this kind of authority over an executive decision.

FBI’s Unethical Raid of Trump Lawyer’s Office Has Already BACKFIRED on Mueller In a Huge Way

Following Monday’s FBI raid on the home and office of President Trump’s personal attorney, Michael Cohen, a poll was released by Rasmussen. This particular poll found that American voters are becoming more and more suspicious of the “Trump/Russia collusion” investigation, and are starting to think that there was more to the motivations behind it’s inception.

President Trump’s insistence that the entire thing was a “witch hunt” may be proving to be true after all, and things aren’t looking so good for special counsel Robert Mueller and his investigation. Out of 1,000 likely voters who were polled, less than half of them believed that Robert Mueller’s investigation is characterized as an “honest attempt to determine wrongdoing,” Rasmussen found.

In the meantime, a much higher number of people polled feel that it is a “partisan witch hunt,” vs the amount of people who felt this way back in October when a similar survey was conducted.

Neither one of the polls makes the Democrats look good, and it’s definitely not doing any favors for the mainstream media’s attempts to try and impeach President Trump.

Rasmussen reported“The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 46% of Likely U.S. Voters still believe Mueller’s investigation is an honest attempt to determine criminal wrongdoing, but that’s down from 52% last October. Forty percent (40%) now consider Mueller’s probe a partisan witch hunt, an eight-point increase from 32% in the earlier survey. Fourteen percent (14%) are undecided.”

It’s beginning to look like the FBI raid on Cohen’s office is going to backfire on Mueller in a big way, but only time will tell just how big.

WATCH: Lou Dobbs Rips Mueller To Pieces Over Raid; ‘I Would Fire The SOB In Three Seconds’

Lou Dobbs is not happy about President Donald Trump’s personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, having his office raided.

During a segment Monday night on Fox Business Network, Dobbs discussed Special Counsel Robert Mueller giving federal prosecutors in Manhattan, New York a referral to execute a search warrant on Cohen’s office.

According to Mediaite, Mueller’s office is investigating Cohen for various tax crimes. Given that is outside of his purview in the Russia investigation, he gave the FBI a referral, which was used to obtain a search warrant.

The FBI reportedly took documents between Cohen and many of his clients as well as records regarding adult film star Stormy Daniels.

Dobbs slammed Mueller’s “witch hunt,” saying he believes it’s an “attack on our country” and an “assault on the President of the United States.”

Calling Mueller’s tactics “thuggish,” Dobbs sounded off on the special counsel and ripped him to shreds:

“He had a reputation for being a reckless and egregiously abusive investigator and prosecutor. But now he is taking it to a new level. Immediately we recall the pre-dawn raid of Manafort’s home.”

“This is now a man that has to be brought under control, it would seem to me. Frankly, I can’t imagine, because each of us has to come to terms with our own heart and conscience –– I would fire the SOB in three seconds if it were me.”

Watch below:

Dobbs guest, Fox News legal analyst Gregg Jarrett, agreed that Mueller should be fired.

Many Americans are questioning how Mueller and the FBI can seize documents between Cohen and his clients, a clear breach of attorney-client privilege.

The FBI also reportedly took documents related to Cohen’s 2016 nondisclosure agreement with Daniels. She signed an agreement to remain quiet about an alleged affair with President Trump in 2006, but is now suing to speak out.

Dobbs says the raid against Cohen is another scathing example of Mueller’s unfettered powers and ability to do whatever he wants to attack Trump and his administration.
