Will Mueller report look the other way?

Special counsel Robert Mueller will not release his Russia/Trump collusion report until after the midterm elections, it was reported on Wednesday.

In another touch of irony Mueller will present his findings to Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who assigned Mueller and determines what parts of the report Congress and the American people can see.

Due to Attorney General Jeff Sessions recusing himself from the Russian collusion probe, Rosenstein became the point person.

So let’s see what Mueller has done so far with this assignment.

He has brought assorted pre-election charges against campaign Trump associates that have nothing to do with the campaign. Paul Manafort, who Mueller flipped after pleading guilty to bank and tax fraud charges, allegedly testified on a Trump Tower meeting between the campaign and Russian operatives.

I believe the meeting consisted of Donald Trump Jr. and Jared Kushner.

So now let’s lay out what Mueller may not report or be able to release.

  • Will Mueller cite his former staffer and colleagues in perpetuating a fraud on the American people by taking a partisan, oppositional report and ramming it through the FISA court to get a warrant against an American citizen to spy on him?
  • Will Mueller cite Obama’s CIA Director John Brennan getting UK allies to spy on American citizens?
  • Will Mueller tell Congress that the Obama White House received daily intelligence briefings on the Trump campaign through these fraudulent spy warrants?
  • Will Mueller throw former colleague and FBI Director James Comey under the bus for his illegal activities?
  • Will Mueller discuss the topics discussed by then-Attorney General Loretta Lynch when she met with Bill Clinton in a “surprise meeting” on the tarmac at Phoenix airport?

Although I have only scratched the surface of the Democratic Party’s actions during the run up to the 2016 presidential election, that’s quite a laundry list of complaints for Mueller to look the other way on.

While I thought this time was going to be consumed with news of Democrats fraudulent acts during the 2016 election through the release of the declassified FISA documents, it appears the fix is in to use this information — right now — for political gain.

As I wrote earlier that Trump’s team may have used the Five Eyes revelations that UK spies violated Americans privacy to get Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau to sign off on the new NAFTA agreement.

So from where I stand today, an October Surprise may not be in the offering this cycle. But one can hope can’t they.

Let’s see if the BOOMS come on Election Day

======================= SPECIAL SUNDAY POST ======================

Something is afoot as the midterm elections draw near.

Expected BOOMS have died on the vine as DOJ Asst. Attorney General Rod Rosenstein has further exhibited his nine lives. His sit down with President Trump on Air Force One and subsequent nixing of his Congressional panel testimony prove he surely has cards left in his hand to be played.

I have to assume through the continuing silence on Rosenstein from the White House the FISA declassification will not be used to taint the midterm election. My thought suggests that the parsing of all the information from declassifying the FISA documents would require a few weeks to decimate the impact of the news for general population.

You could not break the news with revelations that the Obama White House was aware and updated almost daily though intelligence briefings about the spying on a rival party presidential campaign and president-elect by using a Democratic Party oppositional report to allow the Clinton campaign to get espionage court to allow the FBI/CIA through our allies to spy on American citizens.

That scenario is just too much for a general population to wrap their heads around in two weeks. And given the divisiveness of the country, it would probably fall on deaf ears as partisan news organizations would couch the charges as a means just to sway the election.

No, indictments would need to be revealed with press conferences and perp walks to even register a blip on the radar of the national stage.

The time needed for all that has passed and the lack of communication from the administration has pretty much confirmed this theory.

I have to assume that Trump’s White House feels there is no need to muddy the waters even further, since their polling data shows the House and Senate are not in jeopardy at this time.

That’s what I take away from the lack of BOOMS prior to the election. The BOOMS will occur on Nov. 6.

 

FISA justice can’t be served until Kavanaugh’s fate is done

So the ongoing high school homecoming queens lining up to accuse Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of improper teenage behavior has delayed once again the release of FISA documents.

I can see why the the White House would not want to fight a two-front war with Congress, however the Democrats cannot delay this vote until the midterms. The Dems are hoping to put up enough smoke so the President pulls the Kavanaugh nomination.

Either way the FISA documents will come out well before the election and show the American people the duplicity of the Obama administration with the Clinton campaign to spy on a presidential campaign and a President-elect.

As President Trump said last night he will put off the planned meeting with Asst Attorney General Rod Rosenstein that is scheduled for Thursday. The two will probably never meet again in their present positions.

Let’s see if Kavanaugh’s vote can get done this week so we can move on to the real justice to be served by releasing the FISA documents.

There will be Five (black) Eyes when FISA docs are released

==================== SPECIAL SATURDAY POST =================

Next week should be a monumental time for the White House providing of course SCOTUS nominee Brett Kavanaugh can get his Senate vote over and be confirmed.

President Trump cannot pull the trigger on releasing the FISA report giving him clear cover to fire Asst. AG Rod Rosenstein until that happens. The president will not jeopardize his SCOTUS pick with a backlash in the Senate.

Don’t you find it ironic that foreign governments including Britain, Australia and perhaps New Zealand would protest the release of the FISA documents? Congress doesn’t know what is contained in the unclassified version, yet the spy operations of these countries know.

It appears the Five Eyes spy program (Britain, Australia, Canada, New Zealand and the US) where these countries spy on the others citizens to get around privacy violations was used to spy on President Trump’s campaign.

Needless to say all these moves by the president on the declassification of the FISA application has had ex-Obama officials scurrying for cover and the intelligence picked up by the panic attacks has been priceless for future prosecution.

And it appears Rosenstein is the odd-man out since the president will not take a meeting with him and ex-Obama Attorney General Loretta Lynch recorded his four recent calls with him.

So I will be in London next week, but will have my eyes peeled on what is going down in the US as well as there. Here’s hoping for no tech wreck in my travels.

New NSA IG is well aware of FISA-gate

It appears Robert Storch the newly appointed Inspector General for the NSA will become a major player in the Washington DC drama that will play out once the FISA application documents are declassified and released.

Storch comes out of the Justice Department Inspector General’s office headed up by Michael Horowitz, which means he will hit the ground running in the investigation of the Obama administration’s compliance with the Clinton presidential campaign to undermine the Trump campaign with the false Russian Dossier.

Storch will have access to and can supply all communications between White House officials and the Clinton campaign. These communications will Include the cozy meeting between Bill Clinton and Obama Attorney General Loretta Lynch on the Phoenix tarmac.

This meeting — to talk allegedly about the grandkids —  reportedly had a phone participant in the Oval Office, which the NSA would have the transcripts to prove.

Could this chat have focused on getting Lynch on board with — when the time came — to launch an investigation through the DOJ and FBI when the Russian Dossier was completed. Was the Oval Office participant on the line to make sure Lynch knew this came from her boss?

Well I may have more than is known, but I believe this is why Storch’s appointment should be noted.
