Bannon Does Rope a Dope With House Committee…Plans to Talk to Mueller

Bannon’s performance yesterday “testifying” before the Republican led House committee led by Chumph synchophat and co-traitor David Nunes…Was a bust. Bannon saw no need totestify in front of a Republican lynch mob trying to protect the Chumph. Nunes needs to be convicted and hung before this os over with too.

Gonna save his “gifts” for Mueller. Mueller has the goods to put Bannon in jail…The Republican House ain’t got shit.

Steve Bannon Will Tell All to Robert Mueller, Source Says

Trump’s one-time chief strategist and current frenemy may have been tight lipped with Congress. He won’t be that way with the special counsel.

Former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon broke some bad news to House investigators on Tuesday, announcing that the White House has invoked executive privilege to keep him from answering many of their questions.

But executive privilege—the president’s right to keep certain information from the public so he can have frank conversations with aides—will not keep Steve Bannon from sharing information with Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s team, according to a person familiar with the situation.

“Mueller will hear everything Bannon has to say,” said the source, who is familiar with Bannon’s thinking.

During a closed-door hearing before the House intelligence committee today, Bannon reportedly told lawmakers that President Donald Trump has invoked broad executive privilege for the purposes of Congressional inquiries. Because of that, Bannon refused to answer committee members’ questions about what happened during the presidential transition and in the White House.

This sweeping understanding of privilege will not impact what Bannon tells Mueller’s team, according to our source. (To be sure, Bannon isn’t known for being predictable, and it’s possible his team may still look for ways to dodge Mueller’s queries.)

But it means he isn’t answering many of Congress’s questions. A source familiar with Bannon’s interview told The Daily Beast that despite the subpoena—issued by Devin Nunes, the typically Trump-friendly chairman of the committee—Bannon refused to answer questions about events that happened after Election Day.

“He quickly informed through his counsel the committee he was not going to answer questions that pertained to meetings, conversations, events, etc., that took place either during the transition or while he was part of the administration. And what’s more, we would later learn that would be extended to even after he left the White House,” Rep. Adam Schiff, the committee’s top Democrat, told MSNBC.

Charlie Rangel Charged By House “Ethics” Panel

“Conduct Discrediting the House”?

After the conduct of the House the last 20 years, including a Kangaroo Circus Impeachment. Congressmen who couldn’t keep their hands off serially – women they aren’t married to when married, little girls, little boys, the same sex, or turn down a lobbyist bribe from big business…

I wasn’t aware there was anything negative left bad to say about the Congress that wasn’t true.

Discredit… What?

Rep. Charles Rangel, D-New York, is followed by reporters as he heads for a vote Wednesday on Capitol Hill.Speaking of “subsidized rent”… When exactly are they going to prosecute the “C Street Crew”?

So Charlie’s “transgressions” really aren’t about what he’s being charged with.

Thing about Congress is that if Halliburton wants to slip you a million or two under the table through one or more of their 1000 lobbyists  – everyone studiously looks the other way. That, after all is “American bidness” as usual.

The reason Tom Delay and Dick Armey left Congress has a lot less to do with “campaign finance violations” and a lot to do with their support of sweatshop slavery in the Marianas and SE Asia. Same as the old slavery, except with Asians instead of black folks working the high tech assembly “cotton fields”.

Congressmen tend to get whacked when their foreign client interests (re bribes) interfere with foreign policy. Not all Congressmen are crooked – but most of the biggest blowhards on the Hill are. An almost certain sign is when they vote against something that very well benefits the citizens in their state.

Find out who Charlie’s foreign clients are (and those of the other members of the CBC under investigation)…

And you find out the real reason.

See if you can figure out the train Charlie got in front of…

Ethics panel charges Rangel with conduct discrediting the House

The House ethics committee on Thursday accused veteran Rep. Charles Rangel of 13 violations of House rules involving alleged financial wrongdoing and harming the credibility of Congress.

“Credibility is what’s at stake here; the very credibility of the House itself before the American people,” said Rep. Mike McCaul, the ranking Republican on a subcommittee that will hold a trial-like hearing on the charges against Rangel.

McCaul spoke at the subcommittee’s first meeting, which heard the charges against Rangel, a 20-term Democrat from New York running for re-election this year. Rangel was not required to attend and did not show up.

According to committee documents, Rangel earlier filed a motion to dismiss the allegations against him that was denied.

Rangel said this week that his lawyers were in talks with committee lawyers on a possible deal to avoid the public hearing on his alleged violations. When Thursday’s hearing was delayed for 55 minutes with no explanation, rumors of an imminent agreement quickly spread.

However, the panel gathered and held the hearing, which included the first public announcement of the specific committee charges against Rangel. It remained unclear whether a settlement avoiding the spectacle of a trial hearing was possible.

According to the charges, Rangel allegedly failed to report more than $600,000 on financial disclosure reports and improperly solicited funds for the construction of a center bearing his name at the City College of New York.

The committee also alleged that Rangel improperly used a rent-subsidized apartment as a campaign office for over a decade and failed to pay taxes on a home in the Dominican Republic.

Rangel “argues that errors on his personal taxes do not implicate discharge of his official responsibilities,” committee investigators concluded in response to Rangel’s request to have the charges dismissed. He “appears to be operating under the erroneous belief that the only conduct subject to discipline is conduct directly related to the discharge of his official responsibilities.”
