Any wonder why I had to trip over this at the Daily Caller and not on CNN, MSNBC, etc.
Sorry for the all caps!
hindering..........is a crime.....who knew
Its turning out that Mueller is the dog.
he interfered with the investigation into nothing. no, he interfered with the fraud that so people call an investigation, but, in reality, is a political hit job.
Which in any event would be a violation of exactly which statute?
Muller. Desperate. Grasping at straws. Corrupt.
Does he get sentenced without a jury trial? How is that even possible?
Dammit Mueller needs a scalp so he can say the investigation netted something. See they got their $50 mill worth.
Interesting. Six months after the investigation was started, because the Australian ambassador heard Papadapoulis mention dirt on Crooked, they got around to interviewing the main suspect. Makes absolutely no sense they waited so long and reading the charging document no investigation had been ongoing apparently . They had very little knowledge of the Professor and if this was serious both would have been given the Carter Page treatment on July 31,2016...
Read Mueller memo. Sentencing range 0-6 months. Mueller specifically suggests sentence similar to van der Zwaan, who got 30 days (served 26 days).
Hat tip Byron York
So great to know where our tens of millions of dollars are going these days.
So it doesn’t sound like Papadopoulos was able to give Mueller anything he could use.
Setting up his excuses for a complete failure of an investigation.
Mueller best start reading the Tea Leaves if he wants to remain outside an iron barred environment or a loosely knotted rope.
Sessions may actually have to wake up one of these months for a minute or 2 and do his damned job, his sand is about to run out.
It was a sting. Mifsud planted the information, Halper tried to reap it. When that failed, they set up the meeting with the Aussie.
They tried to make it out to be a crime that he repeated what Mifsud told him. It was phony, Mifsud was working for the FBI. But Pap didnt know it was phony...
Of course, there is no crime in repeating what an undercover told him. And there is no crime in trying to set up a meeting with the Russians, as Mifsud evidently had asked him to do. In any event, he failed to attract any interest on the part of the Campaign. So it all went no where.
No collusion. No interest in colluding. Had there been interest, even that would not have been a crime. If it was, Hillary would be behind bars.
Another one from Chicago - imagine that. This guy also worked in the State Dept. during HRC's tenure.
I seemed to also remember that the wife had said that George was going to blow the lid off the Russia Investigation. Her agenda and rightfully so is get George the least amount of time that he can get. Mueller didn’t let him off the hook as much as she thought so now she will come out publicly the other way. Either way it’s funny how liberals thought this was going to a path to get Trump and it came up a complete dead end.
This is intentionally misleading by the corrupt Mueller/DOJ/FBI.
The FBI could have spoken with him in Italy anytime they wanted with simply a request to the Italian authorities. As I recall Mifsud is close to the Italian intelligence service and was laying low in Italy for a while at the recommendation of the intel chief there. The FBI had no problem interviewing Steele in the UK, and an FBI agent stationed in Rome flew to the UK to do this.
Mifsud is the clearest key to unraveling the coup attempt. He seems obviously to be a western intelligence asset.
But I suspect he is not a direct CIA asset. Probably a direct asset of MI6 and may have been known to GCHQ former head Hannigan who unexpectedly stepped down when Trump was inaugurated.
The British and other euro intel agencies are strongly anti-Brexit, pro-EU, pro-open borders, pro-refugee, pro-socialist and anti-self government for the legacy nation-states of Europe.
Expect a huge cover-up trying to get the info out of Britain as to what the relationship between British government agencies and Mifsud was. But Halper probably has information on this relationship, as likely Brennan as well.
That is the information Papadopoulos needs. Note that in the legal papers Mueller is always careful to write that Papadopoulos believed Mifsud to be something in the nature of a Russian agent, but Mueller never on behalf of the US government himself makes that assertion.
Papadopoulos should demand the deposition of Halper, Brennan and anyone else who might have information on the relationship with Mifsud. If they perjure themselves, as is likely, then it's on to find a whistleblower or find records within the US intel community on this to put these corrupt enemies of the US Constitution in prison.
IOW, he didn’t make up what Mueller wanted him to make up.
