The future of our constitutionally driven Republic can no longer be assured if the progressive/Democrats have their way in stealing the elections.

Since the great rape of the electoral process by the progressive/Democrats, I’ve become a true believer in the quote above.

 

 

Mimi Walters my Congresswoman had her seat stolen from her by a socialist and Marxist, Katie porter.

 

An Obama follower, can we expect her to offer anything less than his agenda?

Seriously?

Once again the progressive Democrats stole another election, along with Dana Roerbacher’s seat in the House of Representatives.

New evidence from two separate fronts of special counsel Robert Mueller III’s investigation casts fresh doubts on Trump’s version of key events involving Russia, signaling potential political and legal peril for the president.

Investigators have now publicly cast Trump as a central figure of their probe into whether Trump’s campaign conspired with the Russian government during the 2016 campaign.

Together, the documents show investigators have evidence that Trump was in close contact with his lieutenants as they made outreach to both Russia and WikiLeaks – and that they tried to conceal the extent of their activities.

On Thursday, Trump’s longtime personal lawyer Michael Cohen pleaded guilty to lying to Congress when he insisted that Trump was not pursuing plans to build a Trump Tower in Moscow after January 2016, casting Trump’s repeated claims that he had no business interests in Russia in a new light.

A draft special counsel document revealed Tuesday also indicates that prosecutors are closely scrutinizing Trump’s interactions with a longtime adviser, Roger Stone, as he was seeking information about WikiLeaks’ plans to release hacked Democratic emails.

Trump, identified as “Individual 1” in Cohen’s guilty plea, was said to have received direct updates from Cohen as he pursued a Moscow Trump Tower project with the Kremlin, up until June 14, 2016.

The president also appears in the draft charging document for Trump ally Jerome Corsi, who allegedly told Stone about WikiLeaks’ plans to release damaging Democratic emails in October of that year because he knew Stone was in “regular contact” with Trump.

In the draft documents, prosecutors sought to have Corsi plead guilty to lying when he said he didn’t know about WikiLeaks’ plans and urging others to visit WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange to obtain emails damaging to Democrats.

Trump has given slightly differing accounts of his Moscow business ties over time. In July 2016, he tweeted: “For the record, I have ZERO investments in Russia.” A day later he claimed, “I have nothing to do with Russia.”

In January 2017, he told a reporter: “I have no deals that could happen in Russia, because we’ve stayed away.”

Trump’s personal lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, said Thursday that the president’s written answers to Mueller about the Moscow project, which he submitted just before Thanksgiving, conforms with Cohen’s version of events. They discussed a project, starting in 2015, continuing into 2016, and it went nowhere, he said.

“The president, as far as he knows, he remembers there was such a proposal for a hotel,” Giuliani said.

“He talked it over with Cohen as Cohen said. There was a nonbinding letter of intent that was sent.

As far as he knows it never came to fruition.

That was kind of the end of it.”

Please see the entire article below.

Alan Dershowitz, a Trump ally and constitutional lawyer, said Cohen’s confessions don’t suggest Trump committed any crime but could suggest that Trump wasn’t telling the public the whole truth about the Moscow deal.

“This is politically damaging, but I’m not sure how legally damaging it is,” Dershowitz said.

“This is all about questionable political behavior.

It’s a good reason for people voting against Trump. But I don’t see a crime yet.”

But Tim O’Brien, a Trump biographer and frequent critic, said the developments pose significant new challenges for the president.

“This is part of the fact pattern that gets to the heart of whether there was collusion between the Trump campaign and the Kremlin during the campaign,” O’Brien said.

“I think the unforgiving grinding force of the U.S. justice system, which he has tried to undermine since he became president, is encircling him.

I don’t think we know where he will land. But he is certainly mired in something that he is ill-equipped, legally and personally, to handle.”

Some legal experts argued Mueller appears to be drawing a picture of a candidate who was beholden to the Kremlin.

Emails released in the Cohen plea show Trump seeking a financial endorsement from the Russian government on a private project while Russian President Vladimir Putin was offering to say flattering things about Trump.

“It creates the potential for Trump to feel an obligation to pay back President Putin, or Russia in general that . . . do not put the best interests of American forward.”

Kopp said. “You are creating a potential vulnerability for a future leader of America.”

Trump privately stewed as he followed news coverage of Cohen’s plea early Thursday morning, a White House official said.

A Justice official called the White House Counsel’s Office on Wednesday evening to let personnel know that Cohen would be pleading guilty in a case the following day, according to one person with direct knowledge of the notice.

They were not told the details, however, which they learned about shortly before Cohen’s plea Thursday morning.

Giuliani said the president believed the news development was a gratuitous slap from the Mueller team just as he was about to depart the White House for a trip to the Group of 20 summit in Argentina.

In public, Trump was defiant, telling reporters that Cohen was a liar and a “weak person” who would do anything to save himself from fraud charges he faces related to his taxi business.

Speaking before he stepped onto the Marine One helicopter for his trip, he also denigrated Cohen’s intelligence, calling him “not very smart.”

“He was convicted of various things unrelated to us,” Trump said.

“He’s a weak person, and what he’s trying to do is get a reduced sentence.

So he’s lying about a project that everybody knew about.

I mean, we were very open with it.”

He questioned the scrutiny of the Moscow project.

1 Response to Trump, ‘Individual 1,’ is newly cast as center of special counsel’s probe

  1. Rule of Law. says:

    Trump’s business dealings were well known at the time. This so-called development was in the public news for a long time. Mueller is attempting to rewrite history with his own version of the facts.

    Trump of course denies the conflict of interest as well as any collusion with Russia. On the surface Trump’s business dealing in the International arena appear to be legitimate business operations and had nothing to do with the 2016 Election Campaign. On the other hand, we have President Putin openly announcing at the Helsinki Press Conference that Russians gave Hillary $400 Million in Campaign contributions and Putin went on the state that he gave Trump all of the evidence of Hillary’s money laundering activities with the names and banks involved. Hillary committed crimes with this event but Mueller will not move forward with the information. WHY? Justice demands that Hillary be prosecuted!

    Because Mueller is a long-term associate of Hillary’s and he was involved in several of Hillary’s criminal activities. Mueller is the person who actually carried the uranium samples to Russia for the Uranium One deal that involved Hillary and Obama along with a host of other high level Government officials.

    The wind is changing direction in the Department of Justice. The new Acting Attorney General Matt Whitaker appears to be taking control of this entire Mueller Investigation.

    There are rumored “DISCLOSURES” coming this next week – December 5, 2018 will have two people testify before the Congressional Committee and perhaps more. Julian Assange and John Huber.

    Julian Assange has WikiLeaks information about lots of detailed information along with the detailed evidence. Assange has been given a Pardon by Trump so he is safe except for the Clinton Crime Family and their hit men!

    John Huber is a special prosecutor from the Department of Justice who has been investigating this entire situation. Huber was operating out of Utah and had a team of investigators estimated to be about 450 agents. Jeff Sessions along with the Inspector General of the Justice Department were to folks behind the Huber investigation. Huber is on record as stating Hillary needs to be investigated so perhaps there will be some interesting disclosures about the Criminal Hillary Clinton. Hopefully!

    The big distinction with Huber is that he does not have a long term relationship with Hillary or the deep state. The IG Horowitz is also helping with the “Disclosures” about the criminal activities of the Deep State.

    America is returning to the Rule of Law as defined in the U. S. Constitution.
