    The saga of Robert Mueller’s mystery subpoena continued yesterday, but only a select few even got to see the players. The DC Circuit Court of Appeals went into a sealed session so secret that the attorneys arguing the case went in undercover, CNN reported. What could possibly be so secret in Mueller’s probe that requires this level of security? Wanna take a guess who’s name is on the mystery invitation?
  • A Group of Top Government Spooks & Hackers on the FBI’s Payroll Just Tore Mueller’s Russian Indic

    We asked a number of government spooks and hackers and contractors who have worked for the FBI and other spooky federal agencies to examine Robert Mueller’s latest indictments of 12 alleged Russian “operatives.” Their conclusion? HOAX. Mueller’s team fabricated evidence. And a whole lot of evidence. What kind of evidence? It’s all right here. Whether you understand IT or not, the evidence Mueller claims points to Russia actually also points to India, Pakistan and of course China. Funny though, Mueller never mentions that in his indictment. Wonder why? President Trump has called it a witch hunt. And a number of...

    Special counsel Robert Mueller has requested an interview with Russian pop star Emin Agalarov, who helped set up the now infamous 2016 Trump Tower meeting, according to Agalarov's lawyer. “Conversations are ongoing" about a potential interview, the lawyer, Scott Balber, wrote in an email. “Unclear how this will play out.” Balber did not elaborate on whether Mueller is also interested in speaking to Agalarov’s father, Aras Agalarov, a billionaire with ties to Russian President Vladimir Putin. A spokesman for the special counsel’s office declined to comment. The Agalarovs were partners in the Trump Organization’s hosting of the 2013 Miss America...

    The New York Times reports that special counsel Robert Mueller “is scrutinizing tweets and negative statements from the president about Attorney General Jeff Sessions and the former FBI director James B. Comey.” The Old Gray Lady did not divulge whether the special counsel also seeks the names of books checked out on the president’s library card. .... The investigation exposes the investigators more than the investigated. It reveals the umpires as partisan players. It demonstrates lawbreaking by law enforcers. It sows distrust in institutions heretofore beloved by the American people.
  • Mueller examining Trump tweets as part of possible obstruction (Inspector Clouseau is trying)

    MarketWatch ^ | 07/26/18 | Greg Robb
    The special counsel, Robert Mueller, is examining tweets from President Donald Trump about Attorney General Jeff Sessions and the former FBI director James Comey to see if they played a part in attempts to obstruct the Russia investigation, according to the New York Times on Thursday. The report, which cites three people briefed on the matter, said Mueller wants to question the president about the tweets. Privately, some of Trump's lawyers think Mueller will make a case for interference with the probe by tying together some of the president's actions and tweets, the report said.

    NY Times ^ | 07/26/18 | By Michael S. Schmidt and Maggie Haberman
    For years, President Trump has used Twitter as his go-to public relations weapon, mounting a barrage of attacks on celebrities and then political rivals even after advisers warned he could be creating legal problems for himself. Those concerns now turn out to be well founded. The special counsel, Robert S. Mueller III, is scrutinizing tweets and negative statements from the president about Attorney General Jeff Sessions and the former F.B.I. director James B. Comey, according to three people briefed on the matter. Several of the remarks came as Mr. Trump was also privately pressuring the men — both key witnesses...

    How long will the investigation into the 2016 cyber intrusion into the Democratic National Committee servers remain open and ongoing? Perhaps forever. Because that’s how long the Department of Justice needs to thwart Congressional oversight of the embarrassing details of the dubious origins of the investigation. See the way DOJ cited the “ongoing” nature of the investigation to block Congressional Oversight here, here, here, and here to name just a few examples. When Congress has successfully pried information from DOJ, it has discovered DOJ sometimes redacted or withheld information to shield DOJ from embarrassment — not to protect the integrity...

    Special counsel's immunity offer for Tony Podesta to testify against Paul Manafort is evidence of discrepancy, Peter Schweizer says There is a “different set of standards” for the Clintons and those associated with them that drives Americans mad, Government Accountability Institute (GAI) President Peter Schweizer said Thursday night on Fox News’ “The Ingraham Angle.” “This is what drives people crazy about criminal justice in America. There’s a different set of standards for people in power — particularly those politically connected by the Clintons — and those same rules do not apply to ordinary Americans,” Schweizer lamented.

    Former Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist (R-Tenn.) warned Republicans against continuing their "assault" against Robert Mueller, writing in an op-ed Friday that the GOP must let Mueller continue his investigation. In an opinion piece for The Washington Post, the former Tennessee Republican urged Republicans to fight for the "rule of law," even if it meant going up against the Trump administration. "I am also a Republican because I believe in the rule of law. Republicans must fight for that principle today — even if it means pushing back against a Republican administration," Frist wrote. "It isn’t easy to tell a...

    Dirty and Corrupt Cop Robert Mueller and his team of conflicted liberal attorneys and investigators are seeing their unconstitutional witch hunt fall apart. It seems like on a daily basis more and more information becomes available of the entire gang’s unlawful acts. In spite of this, they charge forward hiring more troops while working with their mainstream media (MSM) to report their unlawful and phony leaks planned to keep their criminal conspiracy alive. More than one year ago, on May 17, 2017, corrupt Assistant Attorney General Rod Rosenstein appointed a Special Counsel to look into the phony Trump – Russia...

    Judicial Watch Sues for Documents on Mueller’s Abusive Raid on Trump’s Lawyers In April, Special Counsel Mueller and the DOJ crossed yet another bridge too far, when Mueller recommended, and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein approved, a raid on President Trump’s then-personal attorney’s home and office. At the time of the raid, I tweeted: “The raid is just one more reason to shut the Mueller operation down – it’s constitutionally suspect, ethically compromised, & frankly has no reason for being – given the fact that there’s no evidence of @RealDonaldTrump-Russia collusion.” Judicial Watch began an investigation that has resulted...

    Special counsel Robert Mueller is tapping additional Justice Department resources for help with new legal battles as his year-old investigation of Russian interference with the 2016 election continues to expand. As Mueller pursues his probe, he's making more use of career prosecutors from the offices of U.S. attorneys and from Justice Department headquarters, as well as FBI agents -- a sign that he may be laying the groundwork to hand off parts of his investigation eventually, several current and former U.S. officials said.

    Axios ^ | 7/6/2018 | Michael Sykes
    Newly released court documents explain that President Trump's former campaign manager Paul Manafort is being kept in solitary confinement for 23 hours a day ahead of his July 25 trial, citing that his safety cannot be guaranteed otherwise while in prison. The big picture: Manafort's bail was revoked by a judge, and his legal team is currently appealing that decision arguing that being imprisoned in such a manner at a facility two hours away from his legal team is hampering his ability to defend himself. Manafort has been indicted on charges including money laundering and bank fraud.

    Legal experts say it’s likely special counsel Robert Mueller secretly gained access to the National Rifle Association’s (NRA) tax returns as part of the investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 election, according to a McClatchy report. Mueller’s team is reportedly looking into NRA donors with links to Russia and investigating whether some donors used the organization to illegally funnel foreign money to President Trump’s campaign. The NRA spent $30 million in support of Trump's campaign in the 2016 presidential race. NRA officials maintain that the organization has not been contacted by the FBI, but legal experts told McClatchy that...

    Washington Times ^ | June 28, 2018 | By Rowan Scarborough
    A federal judge says “even a blind person” can see that Special Counsel Robert Mueller is prosecuting Paul Manafort as a way to acquire evidence against his “true target,” President Trump. U.S. District Judge T.S. Ellis III made the comment in an opinion released this week that nonetheless sided with Mr. Mueller and against Mr. Trump’s former campaign manager. He rejected Mr. Manafort’s argument that the Mueller-brought tax-evasion indictment exceeded the special counsel’s authority and should be dismissed. Judge Ellis, sitting in the Eastern District of Virginia, expressed dismay at the special counsel system and at Mr. Mueller in particular....

On Friday, marveling at Gowdy’s anger over the IG report, I flagged the following quote about Peter Strzok from his interview with Bret Baier the night before. No one within the GOP has been as stalwart a defender of the Russiagate probe as Gowdy has. The despair was palpable:

    A handful of new federal prosecutors have joined one of special counsel Robert S. Mueller III’s cases — an indication that he is preparing to hand off at least one prosecution to others when his office completes its investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election. In a pair of court filings Friday, the special counsel added four assistant U.S. attorneys to the case against Russian entities and people accused of running an online influence operation targeting American voters. People familiar with the staffing decision said the new prosecutors are not joining Mueller’s team, but rather are being added to...

    National Review Online ^ | 6/21/18 | Andrew McCarthy
    While generally cautious about criticizing Inspector General Michael Horowitz’s report on the Clinton-emails investigation, Trump supporters have taken aim at its chief logical flaw: Although key investigators harbored anti-Trump and pro-Clinton bias, and even made statements indicating an intention to act on that bias, the IG did not find that this bias was the proximate cause of any particular investigative decision. This conclusion is easy to rebut; I did so myself in a column last week. Yet, the Trump camp should also be embracing it. Why? Because if this is the Justice Department’s position, then Special Counsel Robert Mueller has...

On Thursday, attorneys for Concord Management and Consulting LLC timely submitted their 13-page memorandum in opposition to Mueller’s requested order.
