Hillary Clinton – The Chumph Dictatorship

Chumph wants a special counsel to investigate the so called Russian Uranium deal.

The problem there is that there is no evidence of any wrongdoing by Clinton.

The whole thing is nothing more than a political ploy and an attempt to suppress dissent through abuse of power.

Appointing a Special Counsel to do so is in itself an Impeachable act.

Donald Trump’s Personal Lawyer Has Lawyered Up Amid Russia Probe

Vice President Mike Pence and campaign adviser Michael Caputo have also hired outside legal counsel.

President Donald Trump’s personal lawyer has hired his own legal representation to help him during the ongoing investigation into the Trump campaign’s ties to Russia, NBC News’ Katy Tur first reported.

Michael Cohen, who has served as Trump’s personal attorney for years, confirmed to The Washington Post that he has retained former assistant U.S. attorney Stephen M. Ryan. Ryan currently works for the Washington-based firm McDermott, Will & Emery.

Other Trump associates ― notably, Michael Caputo, the senior communications adviser on Trump’s campaign, and Vice President Mike Pence ― have also hired outside legal counsel to assist them during the investigation led by special counsel Robert Mueller. Pence called the move “very routine.”

Caputo has hired Dennis Vacco as counsel. House Intel is trying to schedule him for mid-July. Source says Caputo wants open hearing.

Cohen is slated to testify in front of the House Intelligence Committee on Sept. 5, according to Tur, noting that the delay reportedly stems from “scheduling and logistics.”

Chumph Son-in-Law Under FBI Investigation for Charity Scam

The hits just keep on coming.

The Chumph’s son-in-law is now under investigation for a Charity which was supposed to be run for sick children – but the money was diverted into the Chumph commercial empire.

The Chumph criminal empire has used charity scams to bilk millions from givers multiple times, where the money give wind up in the corporate coffers.

Kushner has also used his father in laws position to enrich the businesses, and worked extensively with Russian spies and mob interests.

Finally – there looks like there is going to be an accounting for that.

Orange…Is the new Chumph family attire.

Special counsel is investigating Jared Kushner’s business dealings

Special counsel Robert S. Mueller III is investigating the finances and business dealings of Jared Kushner, President Trump’s son-in-law and adviser, as part of the investigation into Russia’s interference in the 2016 presidential election, according to U.S. officials familiar with the matter.

FBI agents and federal prosecutors have also been examining the financial dealings of other Trump associates, including former national security adviser Michael Flynn, former campaign chairman Paul Manafort and Carter Page, who was listed as a foreign-policy adviser for the campaign.

The Washington Post previously reported that investigators were scrutinizing meetings that Kushner held with Russians in December — first with Russian ambassador Sergey Kislyak, and then with Sergey Gorkov, the head of a state-owned Russian development bank. At the time of that report, it was not clear that the FBI was investigating Kushner’s business dealings.

The officials who described the financial focus of the investigation spoke on the condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak publicly.

At the December meeting with Kislyak, Kushner suggested establishing a secure communications line between Trump officials and the Kremlin at a Russian diplomatic facility, according to U.S. officials who reviewed intelligence reports describing Kislyak’s account.

The White House has said that the subsequent meeting with the banker was a pre-inauguration diplomatic encounter, unrelated to business matters. The Russian bank, Vnesheconombank, which has been the subject of U.S. sanctions following Russia’s annexation of Crimea, has said the session was held for business reasons because of Kushner’s role as head of his family’s real estate company. The meeting occurred as Kushner’s company was seeking financing for its troubled $1.8 billion purchase of an office building on Fifth Avenue in New York, and it could raise questions about whether Kushner’s personal financial interests were colliding with his impending role as a public official.

Mueller’s investigation is in a relatively early phase, and it is unclear whether criminal charges will be brought when it is complete.

“We do not know what this report refers to,” Jamie Gorelick, an attorney for Kushner, said in an email. “It would be standard practice for the Special Counsel to examine financial records to look for anything related to ­Russia. Mr. Kushner previously volunteered to share with Congress what he knows about ­Russia-related matters. He will do the same if he is contacted in connection with any other inquiry.”

Kushner has agreed to discuss his Russian contacts with the Senate Intelligence Committee, which is conducting one of several investigations into Russian meddling in the 2016 election.

Kushner rarely speaks publicly about his role in the White House, but he has become a major figure in the administration with a sprawling list of policy responsibilities that includes Canada and Mexico, China, and peace in the Middle East.

Peter Carr, a spokesman for Mueller, declined to comment for this article but said that “the Special Counsel’s Office has undertaken stringent controls to prohibit unauthorized disclosures and will deal severely with any member who engages in this conduct.”

Special Counsel Investigation of Chumph Brings Serious Legal Heat

Meuller isn’t playing around. The level of prosecutorial heat being brought to this investigation would melt most evil-doers on the spot.

As further evidence that there is some “there there” in the investigation of the Chumph’s treason, mob activities, and obstruction of justice – Mueller has recruited a murderer’s row of some of the top prosecutorial legal talent in America.Those guys quite simply – wouldn’t be there unless there was ample evidence of the “dirty”. Too bad Kamala Harris is a Senator I’d  love to see she and Preet” Bharara on the same team on this.

No wonder the Chumph can’t get a top law firm to sign on to defend him…Not only does he stiff lawyers (and everyone else) on paying them for their work…The opposition this time is real, and the Chumph can’t escape because he has more money than the poor guy.

The Man Investigating Donald Trump’s Russia Connections Is Assembling a Murderer’s Row of Prosecutors

They include men and women responsible for bringing down Nixon, Enron, and the mafia.

As Donald Trump and company continue their audacious plan to humiliate each and every American with their constant incompetence, one man is pushing to find the truth about the president and his cronies’ connections to Russia and their clumsy, foolish, shockingly transparent attempts to cover up any wrongdoing. That man is Robert Mueller, the special counsel appointed by the Justice Department to lead the investigation, and a new story from Politico paints an interesting portrait of the team Mueller is assembling. In fact, I’m pretty sure, if I were Donald Trump, that this news of this team would make me very, very nervous.

He already has picked three former colleagues from his last job as a partner at the Wilmer Cutler Pickering Hale & Dorr law firm: Aaron Zebley, who also was Mueller’s FBI chief of staff; Jeannie Rhee, a former DOJ attorney; and Quarles, who got his start in Washington some four decades ago as an assistant Watergate prosecutor.

But Mueller’s biggest hire to date was [Andrew] Weissmann, who is taking a leave from his current post leading the Justice Department’s criminal fraud section. The two men have a long history together at the FBI, where Weissmann served as both the bureau’s general counsel from 2011 to 2013 and as Mueller’s special counsel in 2005.

Weissmann’s prosecution record includes overseeing the investigations into more than 30 people while running the Enron Task Force, including CEOs Kenneth Lay and Jeffrey Skilling. And while working in the U.S. attorney’s office in the eastern district of New York, he tried more than 25 cases involving members of the Genovese, Colombo and Gambino crime families.

Imagine being a president and a corrupt businessman who potentially is at the head of an immense conspiracy. Your life is full of paranoia. You don’t know whom to trust. The people around you are constantly trying to manipulate you. You’re out of your depth in most meetings. The media won’t stop talking about the scandal you’re at the center of, but you hope against hope that you’ll wake up tomorrow and it’ll just go away.

And then you find out the guys who are investigating you are people who have literally brought down presidents and corrupt businessmen. That’s the situation our president finds himself in now. And if we’ve learned anything from the past two years of Donald Trump’s political career, it’s that there’s nothing this guy handles worse than pressure. I have no doubt that we’re only days away from a Twitter rant about how these guys are losers who should be deported for being FAKE NEWS or something equally stupid.

Multiple Investigations Into Chumph Obstruction Of Justice

There are now multiple investigations in the Chump’s obstruction of justice relative to the Chumph-Russia collusion. One is headed by the Senate, and was kicked off by both the Republican and Democrat Chairs.

The other, and more interesting is the one kicked off by Special Prosecutor Mueller looking into a range of Chumph criminality at the FBI. The Special Counsel is looking into “Obstruction of Justice” in addition to Russia-Trump collusion, in addition to financial irregularities and money laundering, in addition to financial fraud, in addition to…

So many crimes, so little time…Indeed.

Special counsel is investigating Trump for possible obstruction of justice, officials say

The special counsel overseeing the investigation into Russia’s role in the 2016 election is interviewing senior intelligence officials as part of a widening probe that now includes an examination of whether President Trump attempted to obstruct justice, officials said.

The move by special counsel Robert S. Mueller III to investigate Trump’s conduct marks a major turning point in the nearly year-old FBI investigation, which until recently focused on Russian meddling during the presidential campaign and on whether there was any coordination between the Trump campaign and the Kremlin. Investigators have also been looking for any evidence of possible financial crimes among Trump associates, officials said.

Trump had received private assurances from then-FBI Director James B. Comey starting in January that he was not personally under investigation. Officials say that changed shortly after Comey’s firing.

Five people briefed on the interview requests, speaking on the condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss the matter publicly, said that Daniel Coats, the current director of national intelligence, Mike Rogers, head of the National Security Agency, and Rogers’s recently departed deputy, Richard Ledgett, agreed to be interviewed by Mueller’s investigators as early as this week. The investigation has been cloaked in secrecy, and it is unclear how many others have been questioned by the FBI….More
