  • Kavanaugh should not decide any cases concerning Trump

    The Houston Chronicle ^ | September 9, 2018 | Ruth Marcus, The Washington Post
    Under the unusual circumstances surrounding his selection, Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh should have agreed to recuse himself from deciding cases involving the investigation of President Trump. The reason Kavanaugh asserted at his confirmation hearing for refusing to make such a pledge — that it would violate the imperative of judicial independence — is entirely unconvincing. In turn, senators should decline to approve Kavanaugh’s nomination unless he does so. And, since that’s not likely to happen, in the event that a case involving the Trump investigation were to come before a Justice Kavanaugh, he should not participate — for his...

    Does Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein’s indictment of 12 Russian military intelligence officers for allegedly hacking Hillary’s emails and interfering in the US election have any purpose other than to throw a monkey wrench in President Trump’s upcoming summit with Putin? Don’t forget that Rosenstein is implicated in the orchestration of Russiagate as a weapon against Trump, a weapon that serves the interests of the Democratic Party and the military/security complex about which President Eisenhower warned us 56 years ago to no avail. Rosenstein’s indictment of 12 Russians for allegedly hacking computers is a political indictment aimed at President Trump....

    Special counsel Robert Mueller filed a superseding indictment Friday against former Trump campaign chief Paul Manafort, and added Russian citizen Konstantin Kilimnik as a defendant. The superseding indictment lodged by a grand jury sitting in federal court in Washington, DC, came days after Mueller asked the judge in Manafort's case to revoke his bail and jail him because of an alleged effort to tamper with witnesses. This is a breaking news story. Please check back for updates.

    The “complexity” of the case warrants excluding the speedy trial law and delaying the trial, Mueller argued in Tuesday’s court filing. .... Former federal prosecutor and National Review Contributing Editor Andrew C. McCarthy told TheDCNF it was too late for Mueller to claim that the complexity of the case warranted a delay. “Speedy trial rights belong to the defendant, and if the defendant pushes for a trial within the 70 days, the government has little cause to complain,” McCarthy said. “If the case was too complex, the government had the option of holding off on seeking an indictment until it...

Exploring the content of the laptop has been highly anticipated because the contents of his laptop include the missing Clinton emails, which are expected to be disturbing and provide further evidence of criminal culpability for Clinton and other Democrats. ...

    Special counsel Robert Mueller's office appears to be in an early stalemate in its efforts to bring a criminal case against Russians allegedly involved in Moscow's efforts to influence the 2016 presidential election. Although one Russian company indicted by Mueller in February, Concord Management and Consulting, has US attorneys and a court hearing scheduled, the special counsel's team hasn't been able to reach the company or its co-defendants. The Russian government's top legal office wouldn't accept paperwork from US law enforcement in the case, and the company has already hit back at Mueller by demanding more evidence and information. The...

    Any harebrained liberal who still believes President Donald Trump might one day wind up in prison for colluding with Russians to affect the outcome of the 2016 presidential election should promptly seek an appointment with a therapist. And not just because the evidence has disproved this narrative, but because someone at MSNBC — the same MSNBC where a contributor recently called for a “revolution” against Trump — now admits that the likelihood of Trump being indicted by special counsel Robert Mueller is “next to zero.” “He is not going to indict anybody if he can’t bring that indictment home and...

    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.”
  • Russians indicted in special counsel's probe (truncated)

    The special counsel's office said Friday that a federal grand jury indicted 13 Russian nationals and three Russian entities in the probe into Russian interference in the 2016 elections. The indictment says that the defendants allegedly, by early to mid 2016, were "supporting the presidential campaign of then-candidate Donald J. Trump ... and disparaging Hillary Clinton." An announcement from special counsel Robert Mueller's office said that the government accuses all the defendants of conspiracy to defraud the United States. Three defendants are charged with conspiracy to commit wire fraud and bank fraud. Five defendants are charged with aggravated identity theft.

    PARIS -- The news broke early Monday that Paul Manafort, a longtime Washington establishment figure and Republican political strategist, had been indicted by a grand jury on 12 counts as a result of special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into possible Russian interference in last year's U.S. presidential election. People hear "Russia collusion investigation," "grand jury indictment" and "former Trump campaign manager," and that's all it takes in this soundbite world to connect these things in people's minds, regardless of the reality. Many of the facts outlined in the indictment stem from Manafort's involvement in Ukraine during the political tug-of-war in...

    The Paul Manafort indictment is much ado about nothing . . . except as a vehicle to squeeze Manafort, which is special counsel Robert Mueller’s objective — as we have been arguing for three months (see here, here, and here). Do not be fooled by the “Conspiracy against the United States” heading on Count One (page 23 of the indictment). This case has nothing to do with what Democrats and the media call “the attack on our democracy” (i.e., the Kremlin’s meddling in the 2016 election, supposedly in “collusion” with the Trump campaign). Essentially, Manafort and his associate, Richard W....

    Shouldn't the title read The Deep State Strikes Back, you ask? No, unfortunately, because there is precious little to react to. After nine months of supposedly controlling all three branches of power, the much-heralded Trump “Drain the Swamp” revolution has scarcely managed to land a blow against the Deep State, which not only survives, but continues to thrive in the midst of the liberal cesspool inside the Beltway. The problems began early on, as Trump failed to decisively clean house and remove high-level holdovers from the previous administration, something which his Democratic predecessors quickly and ruthlessly accomplished. It was a...

    A newly-obtained memo written during special counsel Kenneth Starr's investigation of President Bill Clinton rejects a commonly held view that a sitting president can't be indicted, The New York Times reported. The discovery adds a possible new wrinkle into the investigation into Russia and President Donald Trump's campaign. The memo has been locked away in the National Archives since 1998, but was obtained by the Times' Charlie Savage through a Freedom of Information Act request, and represents a thorough analysis of the opinion, the newspaper reported Saturday. According to the findings, the memo concludes that "no one, even President Clinton,...
