This must be what Morris knew when he wrote his piece.

An FBI lawyer wrote in a text to her lover in late 2016 that then-president Barack Obama wanted updates on the Hillary Clinton email investigation.

Two months before the presidential election, Lisa Page wrote to fellow FBI official Peter Strzok that she was working on a memo for then-FBI director James Comey because Obama 'wants to know everything we're doing.'

Obama had said five months earlier during a Fox News Channel interview that he could 'guarantee' he wouldn't interfere with that investigation.

'I do not talk to the attorney general about pending investigations. I do not talk to FBI directors about pending investigations. We have a strict line,' he said on April 10, 2016.

'I guarantee it. I guarantee that there is no political influence in any investigation conducted by the Justice Department or the FBI, not just in this case but in any case. Full stop. Period,' he said.'

The September 2, 2016 text message was among more 50,000 texts the pair sent during a two-year extramarital affair.

Fox News was first to report on the latest batch, which is to be released by Republicans on the Senate Homeland Security Committee.

The committee members will soon publish a report titled 'The Clinton Email Scandal and the FBI's Investigation of it.'

President Donald Trump tweeted on Wednesday: 'NEW FBI TEXTS ARE BOMBSHELLS!'

Comey testified to Congress in June 2017: 'As FBI director I interacted with President Obama. I spoke only twice in three years, and didn't document it.'

He didn't address possible memos or other written reports he may have sent to the Obama White House.

But Comey did document his 2017 meetings with President Donald Trump, he said, because he feared Trump would interfere with the Russia probe.

Strzok was the lead investigator on the probe examining Clinton's illicit use of a private email server to handle her official State Department messages while she was America's top diplomat.

He was later a member of special counsel Robert Mueller's team investigating alleged links betwen Donald Trump's presidential campaign and Russia.

It appears that some scores are about to be settled. The House Intelligence Committee is going to investigate some previous cases of other cases where there is a suspicion that officials lied to Congress.

John Brennan is mentioned as a first target, who is almost certainly guilty of lying under oath to Congress -- and he has never been punished. Clapper is another one that must be sleeping poorly. This is from 2014.

Obama should fire John Brennan
By James Downie July 31, 2014 Email the author

CIA Director John O. Brennan speaks at the Council on Foreign Relations in Washington on March 11. (Carolyn Kaster/Associated Press)
In March, at the Council on Foreign Relations, CIA Director John Brennan was asked by NBC’s Andrea Mitchell whether the CIA had illegally accessed Senate Intelligence Committee staff computers “to thwart an investigation by the committee into” the agency’s past interrogation techniques. The accusation had been made earlier that day by Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.), who said the CIA had “violated the separation-of-powers principles embodied in the United States Constitution.” Brennan answered:

Quote:
As far as the allegations of, you know, CIA hacking into, you know, Senate computers, nothing could be further from the truth. I mean, we wouldn’t do that. I mean, that’s — that’s just beyond the — you know, the scope of reason in terms of what we would do. {…}

And, you know, when the facts come out on this, I think a lot of people who are claiming that there has been this tremendous sort of spying and monitoring and hacking will be proved wrong.

Now we know that the truth was far different. The Post’s Greg Miller reports:

CIA Director John O. Brennan has apologized to leaders of the Senate Intelligence Committee after an agency investigation determined that its employees improperly searched computers used by committee staff to review classified files on interrogations of prisoners. {…}

My sense is that the investigation is already widening. On another front, one wonders when the arrests will start. This has the potential to ruin the Democrat Party -- not because of its politics, but because of its corruption.

Feb 15th, and still nothing official has happened.

But the signs are there. There has been open speculation about Obama's role. It was reported that the existence of the dossier, and its contents, were revealed to Obama in a briefing. This is the signficance of the Susan Rice memo, sent two weeks after the new administration had been sworn into office, and asking questions about what info should be turned over to the new administration. This could easily be construed as a crime. Rice reported directly to Obama. She looks to me as if she will be the sacrificial victim to save Obama.

Obama has disappeared. He's not answering questions.

The situation of the FBI gets worse daily. The most recent revelations show that McCabe, the deputy director of the FBI, sat on a stack of Hillary emails until days before the election, and possibly after Comey had closed the investigation. McCabe's wife received a $500,000+ "donation" from the Clinton people -- purportedly to run for office -- but it could qualify as a bribe, and that would have Hillary's campaign paying McCabe to jam up on the emails, and pervert the course of Justice for political gain.

And that means jail time.

Meuller indicts 13 Russians for disparaging Hillary on the internet

That headline was taken from a Rush Limbaugh video. It about says it all.

As best I can figure, some Russians spent $300,000 on ads that have been construed as an interference in the election. To put it in perspective, Hillary spent over a $billion and Trump spend a third to a half of that. (All these are estimates.)

The Russians are charged with something called "aggravated identity theft" and "mail fraud". They aren't being accused of sabotage. Maybe they hope to use this as a "hammer" to trade off in return for evidence against the President.

Not only that, but the ads were reportedly clumsily done. They had no impact. They wrote comments on the internet! Everybody uses false identities. I don't know if this is what they mean by 'identity theft', frankly ... it seems they "posed" as a US organization.

Oh, and did I mention that these people are in Russia, and will never face a trial.

By rights, since none of this has a connection to Trump, the investigation should close down. It probably won't, since it's a political weapon more than a search for truth.

All the public attention is on "the dossier". Limbaugh makes this point: how are they going to indict these Russians and not indict Steele, the author of the "dossier"?

Stay tuned ...

Some independent journalists have been digging into the actual Russian 'interference' in the election. Nobody would call this collusion ... but it is a minor interference in the political process, although not really the elections.

Quote:
CNN and MSNBC Helped Russia Sow Discord by Promoting Fake Anti-Trump Rally

By Rich Noyes | February 19, 2018 1:09 PM EST
One of the revelations in Friday’s indictment handed down by Special Counsel Robert Mueller was that alleged Russian attempts to sow disunity in 2016 included the organization of both pro- and anti-Trump rallies in New York City on the Saturday after Election Day.

A check of their November 12 coverage showed both CNN and MSNBC gave enthusiastic coverage to the Russian-organized anti-Trump rally that day, with live reports every hour. Correspondents celebrated the idea that it was “a love rally,” and repeated the marchers’ anti-Trump mantras, such as: “We reject the President-elect.”

While the two liberal anti-Trump networks offered heavy coverage of the anti-Trump rally throughout the day, a check of coverage between noon and 5:00 p.m. Eastern found that the Fox News Channel offered only a short re-cap (66 seconds) at the start of their 4:00 p.m. Eastern hour.

Of course, none of the networks were aware of who was allegedly behind the march, but CNN and MSNBC reveled in the inflammatory messages of the march. At one point, MSNBC anchor Alex Witt credulously responded to the ridiculously alarmist rhetoric: “That woman, when she’s saying she’s concerned that black people will be shot in the street....Is that a legitimate concern for her? Because, that’s scary.”

Correspondent Morgan Radford cheerfully played along: “Alex, it’s not only a legitimate concern for her, it’s a legitimate concern for a lot of people I’ve spoken to....They’re wondering if this [Trump’s election] is almost a license to carry in terms of hate.”

If the goal of the secret Russian organizers was to inject nonsense like that into the American political dialogue, then their unwitting helpers on CNN and MSNBC certainly gave them plenty of assistance that day. [....]

You won't see this in the New York Times.

There is another little tickle. Trump re-tweeted a tweet from a VP of Facebook -- stating that the Russians were not trying to affect who won the election. How do we know? Because more than half of the ad expenditures were made AFTER the election!

What the Russians probably want is to increase the conflict in the country, no matter who wins. They want to make America weaker, not install a puppet.

The thing is -- this is the same theory the Democrats (under Obama) are using. That's the thinking about "never let a crisis go to waste". They feel that crisis after crisis is the way to bring the state down.

US House Intelligence Committee reports no Trump-Russia Collusion!

Quote:
House Republicans say investigation found no evidence of Russia-Trump collusion
by MIKE MEMOLI

WASHINGTON — House Republicans investigating foreign interference in the 2016 election say they have found no evidence that Russians colluded with any members of the Trump campaign and dispute a key finding from the intelligence community that Russia had developed a preference for the Republican nominee during the election.

Those are the initial conclusions of a 150-page report from GOP members of the House Intelligence Committee, who are formally bringing the panel’s yearlong investigation to an end over the fierce objection of Democrats.

After speaking with 73 witnesses and reviewing more than 300,000 pages of documents, a senior Republican on the panel said there was an urgent need to begin making their recommendations known to the public because Americans have already begun voting in midterm elections.

Rep. Mike Conaway, R-Texas, said the exhaustive probe ultimately found no definitive proof that the Trump campaign actively cooperated with any Russians to influence the vote.

“We found perhaps some bad judgment, inappropriate meetings, inappropriate judgment at taking meetings. But only Tom Clancy … or someone else like that could take this series of inadvertent contacts with each other, meetings, whatever, and weave that into some sort of a fiction page-turner spy thriller,” he told reporters Monday.

Lawmakers had been telegraphing that last week’s committee interview with former Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski was likely to be the last of dozens conducted since the committee launched its Russia probe last March.

But the news that majority party staffers had already drafted a final report so quickly was likely to stun committee Democrats who expected to be consulted in the process.

Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., the ranking member of the committee, said the committee’s work "is fundamentally incomplete,” and blasted Republicans in a statement for seeming to turn a blind eye to serious questions including whether the Russians had leverage over the president.

In an interview with MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow, Schiff said that Democrats would do their best to continue following all relevant leads without the GOP, while acknowledging that the party could revisit unresolved issues in 2019 if his party wins control of the House and with it the committee’s gavel.

"Many of us could see that Donald Trump was going to be a very poor president. What we couldn’t see is how many people would be complicit in that, how many people would be willing to resign their obligations under the Constitution and our system of checks and balances in the service of that deeply flawed president,” he said in the interview.

Conaway hadn’t yet informed Schiff about the draft report when he briefed reporters Monday afternoon. He said he would officially share the draft with Democrats on Tuesday after speaking with Schiff about it on Monday night. The Democrats would have an opportunity to offer their input before the report is sent for declassification and ultimately public release, a process that could take at least a month.

Conaway also denied that any of the initial conclusions by the GOP members represented an effort to undermine the work of the probe by special counsel Robert Mueller.

“We’re not doing anything. We’re not saying anything to ask him to stop. We’re not asking him to not investigate anything,” Conaway said.

The report will include an assessment of the June 2016 meeting between Trump campaign officials, including Donald Trump Jr., and Russians with ties to the Kremlin, concluding that nothing discussed represented collusion.

This seems to be a slowly advancing story, possibly because those Republicans running for re-election would like this to "break" in May, just to stink the race up for their opponents.

Ex-FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe is fired -- and fires back
By Laura Jarrett and Pamela Brown, CNN
Updated 1:41 AM ET, Sat March 17, 2018

(CNN)Attorney General Jeff Sessions fired former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe late Friday, less than two days shy of his retirement, ending the career of an official who had risen to serve as second-in-command at the bureau.

McCabe had more recently been regularly taunted by President Donald Trump and besieged by accusations that he had misled internal investigators at the Justice Department.

In a blistering statement Friday night, McCabe said his firing is part of a larger effort to discredit the FBI and the special counsel's investigation.

"This attack on my credibility is one part of a larger effort not just to slander me personally, but to taint the FBI, law enforcement, and intelligence professionals more generally," McCabe said. "It is part of this Administration's ongoing war on the FBI and the efforts of the Special Counsel investigation, which continue to this day. Their persistence in this campaign only highlights the importance of the Special Counsel's work."

Shortly after midnight, Trump tweeted.
"Andrew McCabe FIRED, a great day for the hard working men and women of the FBI - A great day for Democracy," Trump said. "Sanctimonious James Comey was his boss and made McCabe look like a choirboy. He knew all about the lies and corruption going on at the highest levels of the FBI!" [....]
https://www.cnn.com/2018/03/16/politics/andrew-mccabe-fired/index.html


This is possibly the first of a set of charges being laid for a string of crimes that will certainly lead to Hillary Clinton and may even get to Barrack Obama himself.

The Rebellion in the federal civil service of the USA.

As usual, I was too optimistic. I had hoped the anticipated release of documents would come on schedule. Not so. The FBI and the DoJ -- even in a Trump administration -- are simply refusing to comply with subpoenas! They are treating them as requests.

There are no bugles sounding, but this amounts to a rebellion within the upper circles of the US Federal civil service. It's like a mandarin takeover.

This isn't the only news that's being suppressed or minimized. Big things are happening with North Korea and China. They aren't telling us much. The stock market is sagging, Russia and the West are in a Cold War. In Congress, they refused to allow Trump's budget go through, allowing instead a continuing resolution, which gives Trump more freedom than a budget would.

Instead, the coverage is focused on Stormy Daniel's fascinatingly large bazongas and how Facebook jimmied the election to Trump's benefit.

This video compiles account cobbled together from several sources. It's the Still Report, an independent, sponsored channel. He is an old-fashioned crusading journalist, a Trump supporter for sure, but aware of the Washington world. More than being a Trump supporter, he seems disillusioned by what he thinks is going on, but is still capable of checking facts.

This video is more private thoughts than proven journalism and Still knows it. He made this video as speculation based on what he's seeing, and through comparisons to other similar episodes in American history.

This video has a commercial for the first 40 seconds. It's over at the 13 minute mark.
Be forewarned.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W7Vn7NzqOgk&t=774s

If Bill Still seems excessive in what is admittedly a speculation, you should understand that the FBI is protecting criminals inside the FBI! That isn't speculation. It also is now accused of doing 'favours' for informants, and helped create cover stories to hide the real motives for the Pulse Night Club shootings. There are a lot of facts that back that up.

What you should focus on is the stonewalling of Congress. If Congress cannot force the FBI to surrender the documents, it will show us the bureaucracy is beyond the control of the elected part of the state! It will also become a precedent for other chunks of the bureaucracy, and likely spread. It will mean American democracy will become a ritual with no real ability to check the big organizations in Washington because Congress has been castrated.

Sessions reveals Utah’s top federal prosecutor is investigating claims of FBI misconduct
POSTED 3:16 PM, MARCH 29, 2018, BY CNN WIRE, UPDATED AT 05:27PM, MARCH 29, 2018
By Laura Jarrett, CNN

(CNN) -- Attorney General Jeff Sessions revealed Thursday that Utah's top federal prosecutor, John Huber, is investigating a cluster of Republican-driven accusations against the FBI and has decided that no second special counsel is needed -- at least for now.

Huber has been looking into allegations that the FBI abused its powers in surveilling a former Trump campaign adviser, and more should have been done to investigate Hillary Clinton's ties to a Russian nuclear energy agency, but his identity had remained a secret.

Senator Orrin Hatch released a statement Thursday in response to the news.

Quote:
“Attorney General Jeff Sessions revealed today in a letter to Congress that United States Attorney John Huber, Utah’s top federal prosecutor, has been leading the investigation of certain issues related to actions by the Department of Justice in 2016 and 2017. Mr. Huber brings decades of experience to his latest, and now very public, assignment. Most importantly, he brings the independent perspective of an accomplished federal prosecutor who has spent his career far removed from the politics of Washington. Attorney General Sessions has picked the right man for the job. I am confident that Mr. Huber will perform these duties with the utmost integrity, and I look forward to learning the results of his work at the appropriate time.”

The more I think about this, the more I am convinced that Trump has probably already defeated the intent of the Meuller investigation, and has turned the tables on the Democrats.

All that is lacking is a legal acknowledgement of these acts, and some form of Presidential retribution. How do the main players in this come out of it without spending some time in jail? It's now a question of how many will satiate the political gods.

This news is still being managed. We imagine that the internet has freed Truth from the rough hands of the New York Times and TV news. But I think what we are seeing now is the delay, the buildup of suspense being orchestrated and coordinated with the election in November. This will be the Democrat's version of the Duffy trial.

Look at this video, for example. (It has all the latest ...) But most of all, it will make a lot of people feel impatient, frustrated -- just what you want an audience to be like before the concert starts.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=615&v=0o3mp4b9u0A

Almost all of this is old information, at least a couple of weeks old. This is Fox keeping the story alive, and in the attention of the public. But they could probably proceed right now with McCabe, Stzrok, Paige, Comey, Bruce Ohr ... in strictly legal terms.

They will want something like this before the kids get out of school -- that's my bet.

This is an article by Charles Ortel, a retired investment banker who has examined the statements that the Clinton Foundation filed with the IRS going back. He knows the reg]ulatory world such foundations exist in, and he has the goods on 'probable cause' against the Clintons.

How $37 Million from the Clinton Foundation Disappeared in Baltimore
A grant went to the Clinton-Bush Haiti Fund — but the group had only an office address in Washington, D.C. So what happened to the money?
by Charles Ortel | Updated 06 Apr 2018 at 9:05 PM

Here’s a question for which Deputy Attorney General Rod J. Rosenstein, special counsel Robert Mueller, and former FBI Director James Comey may well know the answer to — but aren’t likely to want to talk about in public, under oath:

Why did the Clinton Foundation send a $37 million grant for the Clinton-Bush Haiti Fund in 2010 to a Baltimore post office box when the CBHF told federal tax authorities that its only office that year was in Washington, D.C.?

For the rest of us, the answers to that and many other questions posed by those who wonder why investigations into obvious and rampant frauds involving Bill, Hillary and Chelsea Clinton and their purported foundation never go anywhere are complex. But they’re worth following if you care about combating charitable fraud.

Be prepared, because the answers also make clear that too many powerful people were and are covering up an odious set of scandals that implicate Establishment Republicans and Democrats alike.

So let’s get started, shall we?

Origins of the Clinton Foundation frauds. From Oct. 23, 1997, until Jan. 20, 2001, President Bill Clinton had the power to ensure that no prosecutions might move forward in the Department of Justice (DOJ) against the William J. Clinton Presidential Foundation, an entity that still has never bothered to file a mandatory federal income tax return for Oct. 23, 1997, through Dec. 31, 1997.

Though there is abundant evidence in the public domain of defective filings made under oath, across state lines, using the mails, Clinton likely felt secure that government officials, even in states controlled by Republicans, would never bring solicitation fraud prosecutions against his nascent “charity.”

Related: Family’s Illegal Control of Clinton Charity Violates Multiple State Laws, Regs

Then, as it became clear that former Republican Texas Gov. George W. Bush would be inaugurated as his successor in the Oval Office, Clinton and others took steps to ensure that allies would occupy key roles inside the IRS, DOJ and elsewhere in the federal Establishment.

Enter Rosenstein, Mueller and Comey. According to his official biography, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein “from 2001 to 2005 … served as Principal Deputy Assistant Attorney General for the Tax Division of the U.S. Department of Justice. He supervised the division’s criminal sections and coordinated the tax enforcement activities of the Tax Division, the U.S. attorney’s offices and the Internal Revenue Service.”

Records available through the FBI vault confirm that the FBI and DOJ attorneys conducted investigations, empaneled grand juries, and issued subpoenas, yet they were unable to bring indictments or gain convictions against the many individuals and entities linked to the Clinton charity, which clearly engaged in a raft of frauds, across state lines, and in numerous nations.

These FBI records, many of which are heavily redacted even now, clearly show that former FBI Director James Comey played “leadership” roles in these epic failures and that Comey’s predecessor as FBI chief, Robert Mueller, was personally aware of the course of these ineffective efforts after he assumed his duties in September 2001.

To see how badly Rosenstein, Mueller and Comey flubbed the Clinton Foundation "investigation," visit the organization's website and try to find audits for 1998 through 2004. You will not find them there, but you will find noncompliant accounting work product for 2000 through 2004 here, here, here, and here.

You will never notice charity fraud when you refuse to look at key evidence including fake audits that ineffectively mask the brazen theft of at least $64 million.

Recent years that matter: 2009 forward. The Clinton Foundation filed an amended federal tax return for 2010 on Nov. 16, 2015. The largest single expense declared for 2010 is a grant of more than $37 million to the CBHF at a post office box in Baltimore, Maryland.


This recent — within the statute of limitations — declaration on page 36 of the amended return is boldly incorrect. Sworn declarations made using the U.S. mails across state lines to New York and Minnesota declared that the only office and mailing address that CBHF had during the year in question was in Washington, D.C.

So why was the $37 million sent to a Baltimore post office address? Who retrieved the check from the P.O. box? What happened to the $37 million thereafter?

Moreover, it is mathematically impossible to reconcile declarations made in these key states to regulators that are public records with federal tax filings for CBHF. Here's why: In total, CBHF declared nearly $49 million in grants and contributions for the entire year 2010.

In a CBHF state filing received in New York on June 29, 2010, Anita Bhatt, the fund's chief financial officer, declared: "Because the [CBHF] did not receive its 501(c)(3) status until April 2010, the Clinton Foundation and the Communities Foundation of Texas solicited funds on behalf of CBHF at the request of former President George W. Bush."

In a filing received July 21, 2010, Bhatt declared that contributions and grants through May 31, 2010, totaled $34.1 million, reiterated that she was in charge of CBHF funds and repeated that CBHF had only one office in Washington, D.C.

This means that if the Clinton Foundation actually sent more than $37 million to a Baltimore address, it must have done so after May 31, 2010, which would mean that CBHF collected more than $71 million during a year when it ultimately declared just under $49 million in total revenues.

Claims by the Clinton Foundation concerning its supposed grant to CBHF do not and cannot be squared with CBHF filings. Someone here is lying and many people are doing their best to cover up what looks like a crystal-clear instance of charity fraud and other serious crimes.

How much money did the Clinton Foundation actually receive during 2010, while soliciting to help poor Haitians after their devastating earthquake? More important, where did the money raised for Haiti by Clinton, Bush, and their associates actually go? And remember, 2010 was a key election year, with much at stake for Democrats.

The same accounting firm — BKD LLP — that rendered opinions to the Clinton Foundation during its early years continued as its auditor during and after 2010.

We certainly will never know the answer to that question if we must rely on Rosenstein, Mueller and Comey, who, it must be remembered, were failing to catch obvious frauds during those early years.

And one more thing: The same accounting firm — BKD LLP — that rendered opinions to the Clinton Foundation during its early years continued as its auditor during and after 2010.

President Donald Trump has been too patient with too many powerful swamp creatures. Americans deserve a real, empowered investigation into Clinton charity and allied frauds, and it should be convened as soon as possible.

The latest development -- Meuller's team has raided the offices of Trump's lawyer to get info about Stormy Daniels. The fishing mission gets more desperate.

This is coming to a climax. Congress is threatening impeachment in face of their flouted Congressional orders to produce over a million 'documents' -- much of it short email exchanges. The DoJ is redacting them. Slowly. To the point that in the last year they have only produced less than 4000 documents.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DlN5YjSPgaQ

And where do they assume the right to redact? They redact material facts often. When it comes to Stormy Daniels, they walk right in and take the records. When it comes to Hillary Clinton, they look the other way to hide their blushing. This is the discrepancy that everyone sees.

On the other side, Huber has been appointed to investigate the email scandal, and he has all the powers of a special counsel. The Congressional committees are dealing with the fact that Congress will lose its power of effective oversight if they don't break this resistance soon.

Also, the recognition that Meuller has far outrun his mandate to investigate the Russian-Trump connection is growing. Calls for Meuller to be fired are spreading beyond Fox News.

The sparks are going to fly soon.

It seems pretty cool that they raided the Lawyers office. Trumps peeps knew this might happen the moment (in weakness I suppose) that Trump said he knew nothing about the payment.

No one believes that. No one.

But since he said it, chances are more than likely he did know. If they can prove that....

UH oh.

Add in it is very hard for anyone to get a warrant to sieze a lawyers files, and to the Nth degree to get a sitting Pres' Lawyers files.

This is so much fun!

It is coming to a climax. Perhaps TC's version is correct.

On the other side, a lot of senior DoJ people -- particularly some at the top of the FBI -- are sweating right now. Why? Because they broke a lot of security laws and even dummied up evidence because they were so sure that Hillary would win. This isn't conjectured, this is what is already apparent from the bits of emails that have been released.

They knowingly presented the Steele Dossier to the FISA court as justification for the electronic surveillance. There's probably a couple of crimes and a contempt of court in all of that -- for everyone putting forward as genuine.

Apart from everything else -- like the way incentives work in Washington, where there are $zillions seeking to buy a smidgen of influence -- the top bureaucrats know very well that their own necks are at risk. At one point, it's a race to see who gets the blame. Then, as they say on the internet, that's when the SHTF.

There is already evidence that the White House was intimately involved with the actions of the DoJ officials. That's where this goes.

This raid on Trump's lawyer, apparently because of Stormy Daniels, flies in the face of law and precedent about lawyer-client privilege. How likely are they to be able to use this evdence in a courtroom?

It feels like a last desoerate attempt to get something they can use against Trump before people like McCabe and Rosenstein start going to jail. From there, the circle only widens.

We should soon see if TC is right. If they get something merely embarrassing, they'll leak it. If it's illegal, they'll trumpet it. We'll all know soon if anything is there.

On the other hand, it feels to me as if Meuller is very close to the edge here. He has made it personal. One more step like this and Trump will fire Meuller, and the public would say he was justified.

=======================

There is one contradiction that Meuller can't avoid. There is more evidence of the Clinton Foundation colluding with Russians than has panned out about Trump. Why the shocking aggression in cases associated with Trump, like General Flynn? It seems grotesque when contrasted to the equally shocking leniency shown Hillary, to this very moment.

Every day this investigation proves the allegations being made against Meuller.

It is clear to all but the legally illiterate that this investigation is NOT investigating allegations of criminal 'behaviour. They have gone beyond the Russian collusion story, into Trump's personal life. They are looking for collusion with the Russians while Hillary is shown to have been at their service through the Clinton Foundation.

Now the Obama White House is being implicated, and Meuller seems to be deflecting attention. There are even allegations that Meuller, when he was director of the FBI, signed off on the Uranium One deal -- which means he is implicated.

This has become a race to see who files the charges first! Can the Special Investigator get Trump impeached before the Trump people get the emails from the FBI?

It has literally become that -- a race to prosecute,and who files first. I think impeachment is difficult, but it will cripple the Trump presidency, which is, of course, one of the goals.

Dershowitz: Mueller’s Setting Stage To Impeach Trump
By Randy DeSoto
April 10, 2018 at 3:11pm

Renown liberal legal scholar Alan Dershowitz stated on Monday, following a raid of President Donald Trump’s personal attorney’s office and home, that the goal of special counsel Robert Mueller appears to be to produce a report that will be used to impeach the chief executive.

“I think that’s the plan,” Dershowitz told Fox News’ Sean Hannity, when asked about Mueller’s ultimate endgame.

He explained the decision to raid Michael Cohen’s office may represent an effort to turn the attorney against his client.

“This may be an attempt to squeeze Cohen. He’s the lawyer. He’s the guy who knows all the facts about Donald Trump,” said Dershowitz. “And to get him to turn against his client. This is a very dangerous day today for lawyer-client relations.”

The New York Times reported that the FBI seized emails, tax documents and records, some of which are related to Cohen’s $130,000 payment to adult film star Stormy Daniels in the days before the November 2016 presidential election. A source told the paper that the parameters of documents identified in a search warrant went back years. [....]
