    Default Mueller Could Become the Democrats' Worst Nightmare

    Bernard Kerik
    19 May 2017


    If Robert Mueller ignores the political rhetoric that's been spewed by members of Congress on both sides of the aisle and focuses strictly on the law and his mandate, then several members of President Obama's administration could ultimately be targeted in this inquiry.

    The former FBI director has been hired to conduct an investigation regarding any links or coordination between the Russian government and President Donald Trump’s campaign.

    Consider the implications of the Democrats' accusations against Trump, and against the Russians for hacking into the Democratic national Committee emails. These emails will become a focal point for Mueller's investigators. So too will the murder of Seth Rich, The Democratic National Committee staffer or who was killed in July 2016 in what police suspect was a botched robbery. There is evidence that he may have been passing information to Wikileaks.

    The Democrats have used this Trump/Russia connection to fuel this political war — and as the president himself recently called it, a "witch hunt" — for the past five months and I anticipate they wanted to use it right up until the midterm elections so that they could sit back and claim the president and Republican members of Congress got nothing accomplished in the first two years of his presidency. I now believe that's going to come to an end.

    Congress' failed inquiries and politically motivated leaks to the press will now take a second seat to Director Mueller and his investigative team which has full criminal grand jury subpoena power. Mueller's investigation takes precedent over these ridiculous congressional hearings that have accomplished absolutely nothing, apart from driving a frantic media, rumors, and political innuendo.

    We already know that former national security advisor Mike Flynn spoke to a Russian counterpart. Had he said something inappropriate, or criminal, we would've known that by now for sure.

    What we don't know, but will now find out, is who ordered the unmasking of Americans in conversations with foreign diplomats. Who leaked those names, and the content of those conversations to the press and media? Who in the Department of Justice told the New York Times that FBI director James Comey wrote a classified memo documenting a meeting with the president?

    If the memo was actually classified and does exist, who leaked it? If Comey was ordered to obstruct a federal investigation as the New York Times has reported, that would be a federal crime, which Comey was obligated by law to report to the deputy attorney general. His failure to report, is not only a violation of law, but also jeopardizes his law license.

    These are just a few things that Mueller and his investigative team will be looking at, and I'm sure there is much much more.

    Who knows where this will go, but one thing is for sure: Donald Trump, Mike Flynn, are going to be looked at, but so will a bunch of others. And based on what's been reported already, we know that some of these others engaged in criminal conduct. It would be interesting to find out why the prior administration allowed them to engage in this activity, why the former Attorney General did nothing, and why Director Comey, intentionally ignored their crimes.

    Hopefully we find out sooner than later. It's time for the president to get on to the job he was sworn to do.


    Bernard Kerik is a former New York City police commissioner, and was in command of the NYPD during the attacks on America on 9/11.

    Default A Different Take

    A Win for the Deep State

    ANDREW KLAVAN
    MAY 19, 2017


    After weeks of scurrilous assaults by the Democrat-Media-Deep-State Complex, the deputy attorney general [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] and appointed a special counsel to investigate the Trump campaign's alleged ties to Russia. This was a major mistake, a big win for the enemies of freedom.

    Nothing against the integrity or honesty of former FBI head Robert Mueller, but as we saw with the investigation into the absurdly trivial [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] affair during the W. administration, a virtually untouchable prosecutor and a staff of hungry, ambitious youngsters looking for a big score is a destructive combination. We can expect months or years of fevered headlines and speculation, all of it serving to paralyze tremulous Republicans and thus hamper the Trump agenda.

    Congratulations to those who seek to undermine the results of a fair and square election. I'm old enough to remember when Democrats found that idea [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] but I guess things have changed since then. Life comes at you fast.

    The Media-Dem-State Complex used its patented Hysterical Wave™ technique to achieve its goal: a poorly substantiated media story from an anonymous Deep State source followed by echo-chamber histrionics from Democrats, then, just as the public catches on to one scam, a new poorly substantiated story followed by more histrionics and so on.

    Oh my God! Trump [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] to stop the Russia investigation!!!! It's treason!!! Wait, the [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] says that never happened... Oh, but now — oh my God!!!! —[Only registered and activated users can see links. ] classified information to Russia!!!! Wait, Obama did that [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] times and no one said anything. Yes, but now there's a memo from Comey saying Trump tried to stop his investigation — oh my God, it's [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]!!!! Wait, [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] that never happened either.

    Too late. Special prosecutor. We win.

    Well played, dirtbags.

    Trump bears plenty of responsibility for this. He's learned a lot since he announced his candidacy and good for him. But he has not learned when to shut his big flapping face. His tweets [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] those who try to defend him so that they stop wanting to defend him. His bluster and [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] weaken his self-defense. And his [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] make him untrustworthy. As much as I disagree with Deputy Attorney General Ron Rosenstein's decision to appoint a special counsel, it's very possible he just felt Trump had put him in an untenable position. By saying Rosenstein's letter spurred his firing of Comey, then denying it, Trump may have turned Rosenstein into a witness who could no longer oversee the investigation.

    Donald. Sweetheart. Baby Doll. Shut the hell up.

    But Donald Trump, for all his flaws, is not the danger to the American way of life. The Media-Dem-Deep-State Complex very much is.

    Here's Democrat [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] of the Senate Intelligence Committee, speaking to Tucker Carlson: "I have been out to visit all of our intel sites and meet with all of our intel people. They’re the best in the world. They need to have some type of a correlation, a relationship, a dialogue. The president needs to patch this up."

    Here's CNN reporter and Democrat hack (but I repeat myself) [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]: "Right or wrong, what this president has done... is pick fights with the intelligence community and now the law enforcement community.... So we know that they talk about the deep state -- well these are communities that have a lot of loyalty within -- and know how to get back, even if you're the president of the United States."

    I'm sorry. Did I doze off and miss the death of democracy? It's okay with Senator Manchin and Dana Bash if the intelligence community undermines our elected leaders because they feel disrespected? Do we have to do the wearying chore of wondering how this would be covered if it were Obama under siege by the FBI and CIA? But it wouldn't have been covered because the media was in Obama's pocket. So despite the IRS scandal, the Fast and Furious scandal, and the corruption of the Justice Department, there was nary a special counsel in sight.

    What strikes me about these comments from Manchin and Bash is how they confirm the remarks of one of the men they hate and fear most, [Only registered and activated users can see links. ], who said this about the Media-Democrat-Deep-State Complex at the last CPAC gathering:

    "If you think they are going to give you your country back without a fight, you are sadly mistaken. Every day it is going to be a fight."

    He was right. It's a fight. And this round goes to the bad guys.

    Democrats start to worry they are out on a limb with Russia conspiracy theories, and Mueller has a saw

    Thomas Lifson
    May 19, 2017


    The appointment of Robert Mueller as special counsel to investigate the wild charges of Russian interference in the 2016 election has turned the tables on the conspiracy theorists. Some are even acknowledging the total lack of evidence behind the media-induced frenzy that grips the Beltway and left-wing crazies, but not most normal Americans. [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] that the mania gripping Rachel Maddow & Co. at its anchor desks was not shared by the people it interviewed on the street in North Carolina when it took "the pulse of the people."

    Perhaps remembering what happened to the GOP in the wake of the failed Clinton impeachment trial, [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] urged her House members to squelch their impulse to impeach. Even rabid [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] warned the troops:

    "That's not something that we should be rushing into or rushing to suggest," Schiff told CNN's New Day, [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] to The Hill.

    He said the impeachment process would be a "wrenching experience" for the country, and it was important to get answers first.

    Dems, it seems, forgot to be careful what they wish for, because they just might get it.

    That lack of evidence is so worrisome that as Jason Willick pointed out at [Only registered and activated users can see links. ], some of the Trump haters are de-escalating:

    [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] declaring that while he has confidence in Mueller to identify and expose any criminal activities undertaken by Trump or his associates, he won't be able to prosecute the real Trump-Russia wrongdoing: a labyrinthian "conspiracy" which may not even involve any illegal behavior.

    It is critical to understand that the most important details we need to know about the Russian disruption campaign and the Trump campaign's possible collusion with it may not be crimes. Indeed, I would say that the crimes we're likely to discover will likely be incidental or secondary to the broader actions and activities we're trying to uncover. Just hypothetically, what if Russia had a disruption campaign, Trump campaign officials gave winks and nods to nudge it forward but violated no laws? That's hard to figure but by no means impossible. (Our criminal laws are not really designed for this set of facts.) The simple point is that the most important 'bad acts' may well not be crimes. That means not only is no one punished but far, far more important, we would never know what happened.

    And here's [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] in the Atlantic making a similar objection:

    The special counsel will investigate whether people in the Trump campaign violated any laws when they gleefully leveraged the fruits of Russian espionage to advance their campaign.

    By contrast, what happened in plain sight — cheering rather than condemning a Russian attack on American democracy — will be treated as a non-issue, because it was not criminal, merely anti-democratic and disloyal.

    Meanwhile, the president of the United States is flying off to Saudi Arabia, where an unprecedented group of Muslim rulers may offer some very big wins, starting with major purchases (hundreds of billions of dollars) of American weapons, and possibly extending to real progress on dealing with the Palestinians, who have become an irritant to most of the Arab regimes in this era of Shiite-Iranian expansionism. If Trump can get some sort of progress on recognizing Israel's right to exist (as has been rumored), he will outdo every other American president in healing that wound.

    This could be quite a turning point. Of course, it all depends on what Mueller does and doesn't find.
