Mueller’s report will not lead to full FISA declass. It just can’t.

What does the public release of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report sometime this week mean for the nation? Will it heal the schism? NO.

Look at the reaction by the Democrats already in Congress. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi does not want to be briefed on the report by Attorney General Bill Barr, Rep. Adam Schiff is already calling for an investigation into Mueller, without even seeing the report.

No, the Mueller report will cause deeper rifts, with far left pols and pundits grasping at straws.

Nowhere did I see in the Sunday editions of the New York Times or Washington Post the hundreds of column inches of corrections required to amend all the stories written about how the Mueller report was going to lead to a Trump impeachment.

The general public is unaware of this duplicity by the alt left. They may have heard there was no Russian collusion with the Trump campaign while watching the NCAA March Madness basketball games, but the media is still playing up the plea deals that came out of the Mueller probe.

All those convictions dealing with Trump lawyer Michael Cohen, Paul Manafort and the rest, were for crimes committed before the president decided to run for office and had no connection to the campaign.

Now those in the know on the right are clambering for the release of the unredacted FISA applications, which will lead to showing the real collusion, which began in late 2015, when the Obama White House through CIA Director John Brennan and DIA chief James Clapper set up a spying operation on Trump using British, Canadian, Australian and New Zealand spy operations.

A limited FISA release with all the communications between DOJ and FBI will probably come out a next month in support of the President not stonewalling the investigation despite of the bias of the probers. It will further inform on how all these characters were anti-Trump and working furiously to find a connection between Trump and Russia.

However, I don’t believe the full FISA declassification will happen anytime soon. It’s a can of worms that no one wants to unleash given the revelations of treason and sedition contained within the documents themselves and by implication and direct testimony leads directly to Obama’s Oval Office.

Certainly it will be held over the heads of all those involved and used to the best advantage, but I do not think most of the revelations contained will see the sunlight anytime soon.

If I am correct on this we will soon see Joe Biden announce his candidacy. He is waiting for a deal to be cut before throwing his hat into the ring officially.

All Mueller’s indictments come from lying to his probe, not during campaign

I have to laugh at the reactions to the Roger Stone arrest over the weekend.

Stone was seized by FBI agents in a pre-dawn SWAT-team like raid on his Florida home.

But here’s the thing, Stone’s charges — like that of all the other charges brought by Special Counsel Robert Mueller — are charges that stem from after the probe began.

The charges are not from the Trump presidential campaign. None of the charges have anything to do with Russian collusion. Many are for lying to the FBI and stem from these men giving false statements.

How did the FBI know they were false statements? Because they have the FISA warrants, which allowed them to spy on the campaign. So when the FBI questioned these individuals and the sworn affidavit didn’t jive with the secret tapes they were hit with false statement charges.

It almost sounds like entrapment to me, since no one knew the government was spying on its own citizens. Here’s a rundown of Mueller’s main cases against Trump associates so far:

  • George Papadopoulos: Former Trump campaign foreign policy adviser, was arrested in July 2017 and pleaded guilty in October 2017 to making false statements to the FBI. He got a 14-day federal sentence. No one does 14 days in federal jail, that’s like being locked up in drunk tank overnight.
  • Paul Manafort: Trump’s ex-campaign chair, was indicted on a total of 25 different counts by Mueller’s team, related mainly to his past work for Ukrainian politicians and past tax returns. Manafort’s  was convicted on eight counts of financial crimes. He awaits trial on secondary charges all stemming from false statements.
  • Michael Flynn: Trump’s former national security adviser, pleaded guilty in December 2017 to making false statements to the FBI.
  • Michael Cohen: Trump’s ex-lawyer pleaded guilty to eight counts In August 2018— tax charges, related to his finances and taxi business, and campaign finance violations — related to hush money paid to women who alleged had affairs with Trump with NYC federal officials, as part of a separate investigation that Mueller recommended. In November, he made a plea deal with Mueller to get leniency on lying to Congress charges over constructing a Trump Tower in Moscow.
  • Roger Stone: On Friday, Mueller indicted the Trump adviser on seven counts of lying to the House Intelligence Committee about his efforts to get in touch with WikiLeaks during the campaign and witness tampering.

This closest Mueller got to Russia — but not collusion with the Trump campaign — was the  12 Russian military intelligence officers who were charged with hacking and leaking of leading Democrats’ emails in 2016. No connection to Trump team.

So where are the collusion charges? They do not exist.

However people who are just Trump haters will cite these men as being crooked, so Trump’s crooked and let’s bring impeachment charges against him.

I say, if the FBI was spying on you and then brought you in for questioning a week later, then they ask you what you had for lunch on Tuesday the 17th and you say sushi and they have you talking about egg salad, well you could be charged with lying to the FBI. It’s that simple.

FISA release ends Mueller’s witch hunt

So why on Monday afternoon did special counsel Robert Mueller announce that former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort violate his plea deal by lying to the feds.

Just as a refresher Mueller’s team have a Manafort conviction on 8 counts of financial fraud that occurred prior to his involvement with the Trump campaign. He also took a plea agreement n September admitting to fraud and tax evasion over his lobbying work for a pro-Russian political party and politician in Ukraine. Again before being involved in the Trump campaign.

Part of the court filing from Monday stated: “After signing the plea agreement, Manafort committed federal crimes by lying to the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Special Counsel’s Office on a variety of subject matters, which constitute breaches of the agreement,” Mueller’s team wrote in a 3-page filing.

No further information on what he lied about. The filing only stated that the lies would be revealed on a later date.

I’m not here to defend Manafort, who is a career political fixer and influencer, but I do question the timing of the filing.

It comes on the heels that Acting Attorney General Matt Whitaker is about to release the FISA documents and ex-AG Loretta Lynch and ex-FBI chief James Comey are going to be brought in front of Congress to testify on actions pertaining to FISA court abuses. Only to be followed up by Federal prosecutor John Huber’s update to Congress on his probe into the Clinton Foundation.

These events scheduled for the beginning of next week should poke huge holes into Mueller’s working premise that the Trump campaign colluded with the Russians during the 2016 presidential election cycle.

What we can surmise from reports on the unredacted FISA documents is that the Democratic National Committee along with perhaps the Clinton Foundation provided funds to produce a report written by Christopher Steele with research help from Nellie Ohr (wife of DOJ staffer Bruce Ohr) and contributions from the British, Australian and New Zealand spy agencies (part of the Five Eyes program) to dupe the FISA court to get a warrant to spy on Trump campaign staffers and the Trump Tower offices.

Remember the first time the DOJ went before the court with Steele’s report the surveillance application was turned down. Only after the Obama Administration leaked the report to New York Times reporter Maggie Haberman and used her clippings as evidence that something was going on in the second application did the court issue the warrant.

So out of all this falsehood (and believe me I have only scratched the surface of this topic here) Robert Mueller is named special counsel by Deputy AG Rod Rosenstein in early 2017. And is it any wonder why we only see indictments and plea deals for actions that have occurred prior to the presidential campaign?

Between Whitaker and Huber we need to get the FISA documents out in the open for all to see and understand who the real colluders were. And it had nothing to do with the Russians, but everything to do with the Obama White House in cahoots with our “allies” to take down the Trump presidency.

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.
