Swiftboater Jerome Corsi Files Lawsuit To Disbar Mueller, Indict Him For Witness Tampering

Swiftboater Jerome Corsi Files Lawsuit To Disbar Mueller, Indict Him For Witness Tampering

 

Array

Apparently Jerome Corsi is trying to top his previous swiftboat and birther conspiracies, because his offering today to the CT gods is a real gem. He’s filed a lawsuit wherein he characterizes himself as a “recognized and distinguished investigative journalist,” indicting Robert Mueller and members of his team, who “counseled and attemted [sic] to coerce Dr. Corsi to commit a felony, all in their zeal to get Dr. Corsi to lie to presumably obtain indictments for other subjects and targets, including but not limited to the President of the United States, Donald J. Trump.” It reads like parody but the lawsuit is in fact on the Scribd site:

Special Prosecutor Robert Mueller and his prosecutorial staff, particularly Rhee, Goldstein, Zelinsky, and Atkinson, have threatened a witness and tampered with a witness, Dr. Corsi, to criminally coerce him into providing false testimony and in fact also withholding or suppressing truthful testimony. Those prosecutors hired and operating under the direction of Special Counsel Robert Mueller want Dr. Corsi to falsely testify that he and Roger Stone acted as go-betweens (alone or through additional links and contacts) between the 2015-2016 presidential campaign of Donald J. Trump and the Russian government through Wikileaks founder and leader Julian Assange. Faced with what was deceptively proposed by the Special Counsel to appear like an easy, sweetheart plea deal, Dr. Corsi has refused because such testimony would be a lie. Dr. Corsi has been accused of telling a lie when he is telling the truth. Under threat of indictment and eventual conviction which could effectively result in life imprisonment as Dr. Corsi is now 72 years old, Dr. Corsi has been criminally threatened and coerced to tell a lie and call it the truth. Dr. Corsi refuses to lie. He has stated publicly that he will not one day stand before God having lied; nor will he participate in a slow-motion coup against the president that would be to the detriment of his nation and the next generations by lying. And if he avoids a charge of lying by lying, he could never be confident that his constitutional and other legal rights will again be compromised, as apparently has already occurred with other subjects and targets of Special Counsel Mueller’s run-a-way and politically motived [sic] investigation.

Although an act of supreme irony, the Special Counsel and his prosecutorial staff have attempted to and conspired to violate 18 U.S.C. § 1001 [lying to federal agents] while threatening Dr. Corsi with indictment and prosecution for violating the same statute. Knowing the testimony they wanted Dr. Corsi to give to be actually false – including having been repeatedly told by Dr. Corsi that the assertions are false – the Special Counsel’s office nevertheless insisted upon using the false testimony they wanted to get from Dr. Corsi in court proceedings and indictments against other persons.

Mueller and his team are also accused of “rampantly engaging in news leaks” and conflicts of interest.

Special Counsel Mueller knowingly hired an attorney who had previously – within the preceding year from her hiring – represented the Clinton Foundation of whom Hillary Clinton and Bill Clinton are principals. See Exhibit D. Having previously represented the Clinton Foundation, its Board of Directors and principals Hillary Clinton, Bill Clinton, Chelsea Clinton, and Former Counselor of the U.S. Department of State Cheryl Mills, Ms. Rhee ethically cannot investigate, work on, or prosecute possible collusion by Russia with Trump’s presidential campaign running against Hillary Clinton. Mr. Mueller’s hiring of Ms. Rhee and others is in itself an ethical violation of DOJ standards and professional rules. With Mr. Mueller’s array of experience, he obviously knows that the lawyers he is hiring are legally and ethically compromised and prevented from following the evidence wherever it leads. One must infer that Mr. Mueller intends a hatchet job on President Trump in retaliation for his friend, Mr. Comey, and his firing from head of the FBI.

Here’s the final paragraph.

In addition, Special Counsel Mueller and his prosecutorial staff should respectfully be removed from his office and their practice of the law and a new Special Counsel appointed who respects and will obey common and accepted norms of professional ethics and the law and who will promptly conclude the so-called Russian collusion investigation which had been illegally and criminally spinning out of control, furthered by complicit incompetent and unethical “oversight” under Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, whose conflicts of interest and actions also need to be investigated and remedied.

Couple this with the fact that George Conway, husband of Kellyanne, said that Trump tweeting praise for Roger Stone’s “guts” is witness tampering.

Conway’s writing partner and Supreme Court lawyer, Neal Katyal, agrees.

For those of you worried that Trump’s actions would lead to a constitutional crisis, worry no more. We’re there. This is going to get very ugly.

Trump Mar-a-Lago friend pressured the VA to adopt a mobile app he himself developed

Trump Mar-a-Lago friend pressured the VA to adopt a mobile app he himself developed

 

Inside Edition / YouTube How Mar a Lago is Getting...
Inside Edition / YouTube

The Department of Veterans Affairs is currently struggling and sometimes failing to make promised payments to student veterans receiving G.I. Bill benefits, while those student veterans struggle to remain in school while the VA battles with the crumbling technology causing the delays. This is an ongoing crisis.

It might help matters at least a little if the VA’s technology team’s focus wasn’t being pulled off such vital concerns in order to work on apparent vanity projects for Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago friends. The tremendous power hostile takeover kingpin Ike Perlmutter, defense lawyer Marc Sherman and Palm Beach doctor Bruce Moskowitz have been given over the VA was discovered this last summer, with the trio exercising an inexplicable Trump-given authority over policy, personnel, and budget decisions.

Now ProPublica has uncovered the extent to which one member of the trio sought to overrule the VA’s technology team in favor of his own projects, including pressuring the VA to adopt an iOS mobile app he developed with his son and inserting that son into high-level meetings about that app.

Moskowitz’s son Aaron joined a June 2017 conference call with executives from top medical systems and from Apple, including CEO Tim Cook. Moskowitz wanted the app discussed for five to seven minutes, according to the emails. After the call, Moskowitz named his son as one of the project’s “mid-level project managers.”

The refrain here is a familiar one: the wealthy Trump Mar-a-Lago friend mistrusted or was unimpressed with the entire collected expertise of the department’s government team, instead deeming his own technology insights to be superior and the department’s problems to be best solved by, as sheer coincidence, a product he himself was marketing. Moskowitz also pressured the VA into organizing a conference on medical device registries, the core topic of a foundation he founded from which his wife was drawing a salary, despite the government already having an effective such system in place.

You can take all this to be an attempt at self-dealing or an earnest effort by a single wealthy doctor suddenly given command control over the Department of Veterans Affairs to reform the agency in accordance with what he himself diagnosed to be key issues facing veterans—albeit one with no apparent knowledge of what the department was actually doing, or had already solved, or had itself identified as most critical. It doesn’t matter which; in either event, the department was blowing time, budget and other resources to probe the pet projects of three Donald Trump golfing buddies suddenly made czars of whatever specific projects tickled their fancy. That is, to put it mildly, not how efficient government is supposed to work.

Donald Trump is Openly Engaging in Flagrant Witness Tampering, Like All Innocent People Do

Donald Trump is Openly Engaging in Flagrant Witness Tampering, Like All Innocent People Do

There is a phrase in legal practice that is commonly described as “consciousness of guilt.” It refers to behavior by a defendant’s actions that proves he knew he was guilty. And Donald Trump is providing material for a whole textbook on the subject as he tries to malign special counsel Robert Mueller while vindicating the sleazeballs who remain loyal to him.

In addition to his actions demonstrating consciousness of guilt, they are also a public display of the fear and desperation he is experiencing as the walls close in around him. But by acting out in this way he is ultimately harming his own legal position and even committing more crimes. This was noted succinctly by George Conway (husband of Trump’s White House counselor, Kellyanne Conway) who tweeted:

The federal codes referenced in that tweet address two violations of the law. First, any “endeavor to influence, intimidate, or impede” any officer of the court (Mueller) “in the discharge of his duty.” And second, “knowingly using intimidation” to “influence, delay, or prevent the testimony” of a witness. And these are the tweets in Trump’s Monday morning tweetstorm that Conway was reacting to:

Michael Cohen, of course, is a witness in the Mueller probe. Trump should not be passing judgment on him or recommending punishment. As for the charges being “unrelated to Trump,” is he referring to Cohen’s testimony that cites Trump as an unindicted co-conspirator? Or is he referring to Cohen’s testimony about Trump Tower Moscow? Those seem pretty related to Trump. Nevertheless, Trump is also accusing Cohen of lying to Mueller, a charge for which he has zero evidence. And if that weren’t bad enough, Trump is implicating Cohen’s family in these alleged crimes. And then Trump goes on:

It’s cute the way he puts “President Trump” is sarcasm quotes. But more to the point, Trump is hailing his pal, and notorious dirty trickster, Roger Stone, for having the “guts” to continue lying on Trump’s behalf. However, before getting in too deep, he may want to recall the Cohen once said he would “take a bullet” for Trump. Funny how reality, evidence, and the prospect of prison changes one’s mind. And finally Trump fired this one off:

What Trump might mean is that Mueller is “a much different man” than Trump thinks, or is able to comprehend. Trump’s disparaging remarks clearly fit the above criteria for criminal acts. He can’t support any allegation against Mueller for lying or encouraging others to do so. This tweet is simply a vindictive personal attack on an officer of the court. What’s more, it’s disrespectful of a lifelong Republican who has spent his whole career in public service, and is a decorated veteran. So much for Trump’s phony admiration for our vets.

One thing that Trump may have gotten right is his concern about a “band of Angry Democrats” There are at least 65,000 000 of them. And add to those the disgusted independents and woke Republicans. They are responsible for the walloping that Trump suffered in the midterm election last month. And they aren’t going to cover up for Trump the way the lily-livered Republicans did. With the House of Representatives flipping to majority Democratic control, some real oversight is about to begin. And the truth that Trump pretends to want will finally come out, whether he likes it or not.

A day after slamming Trump, Russian state media still at it: he’s ‘clumsy,’ ‘morose,’ ‘defensive’

A day after slamming Trump, Russian state media still at it: he’s ‘clumsy,’ ‘morose,’ ‘defensive’

 

Russia Insight / YouTube BREAKING Putin I Talked with Trump 1543884825.jpg...
Russia Insight / YouTube

Yesterday I wrote an article about Russian state media’s taunt-fest at the expense of our feckless leader.

The scoop came from Julia Davis, an expert on Russian propaganda who regularly monitors the country’s newspapers and broadcasts.

Well, one day later, Russian media (er, Vladimir Putin) are still not satisfied with Donny’s performance. Looks like Don and Vlad talked, but judging by Russian state media’s persistent heckling, it didn’t go the way Putin would have liked:

Sigh.

Someone with more Twitter clout than I needs to ask Davis what the ETA for the pee tape is. Because if it’s available on iTunes before Christmas, my shopping list is going to write itself.

Rep.-elect Ocasio-Cortez blasts lawmakers with livable salaries who are looking for free labor

Rep.-elect Ocasio-Cortez blasts lawmakers with livable salaries who are looking for free labor

 

Rebel HQ / YouTube Alexandria Ocasio Cortez s Political Revolution 1543887144.jpg...
Rebel HQ / YouTube

A few weeks ago, Rep.-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez made one of her many waves when she tweeted about the complete absence of affordable housing in Washington, D.C., and how that put her, a newly elected congresswoman, in a financial bind. Very quickly, right-wingers and other intellectually vacuous supposed bootstrappers, attempted to shame Ocasio-Cortez for not already enjoying a six-figure salary or a family history that includes being floated by one’s parents. That backfired. But Ocasio-Cortez’s point at the time was not simply to gripe about housing costs in our nation’s capital, but to point out that income inequality in our country has led to unlivable conditions.

Conservatives came out of their QAnon hovels in order to tell off Rep. Ocasio-Cortez. Bloomberg reporter Steven Dennis stepped up to make another simple point.

Yes. That does limit people.

Crickets.

Glenn Beck Merges With Mark Levin, Joins Founder Of Violent ‘Proud Boys’

Glenn Beck Merges With Mark Levin, Joins Founder Of Violent ‘Proud Boys’

 

Gavin McInnes, the co-founder of Vice Media who became an alt-right superstar only to abandon his association with a violent gang he had created, will be joining the new company formed by a marriage of two conservative media empires.

Glenn Beck, the former Fox News conspiracy theorist, is joining his company in corporate matrimony with that of Mark Levin, one of the most influential right wing radio hosts in the country and founder of CRTV, which hosts McInnes’ show.

Combining The Blaze with CRTV, the new entity will be called Blaze Media, and feature McInnes alongside such CRTV luminaries as crazy-eyed Michelle Malkin, alt-right hero Steven Crowder, Tea Party astroturfer Matt Kibbe, and the Taliban-bearded Phil Robertson of Duck Dynasty infamy.

“Tens of millions of Americans have had it with the biased, ideologically driven mainstream media outlets that sanctimoniously advance their own agendas under the guise of ‘news’ and ‘journalism,’” Levin said in announcing the merger, thus projecting his own business model on more fact-based outlets.

The merger means that McInnes, who recently stepped down from leadership of the alt-right “Proud Boys” after he learned that the group is under law enforcement scrutiny for their violent street tactics, will appear in the same space as the man who once convinced tens of millions of Fox News viewers that step-dancing black children were a dangerous Obama militia in training.

What could possibly go wrong?

Comparing the new company to a movie studio — and hinting at plans to expand his white nationalist fan-fiction into films — Beck told Hollywood Reporter that the merger has nothing at all to do with his past financial woes.

Financial terms of the merger were not disclosed, but Beck acknowledges his company had bled some red ink, though it has been profitable for about 12 months.

“We worked hard to make sure we’re in the black. If we had spoken to CRTV a couple of years ago, it would have been a different story,” he says. “We talked about a merger when neither of us need it. That’s the best time.”

Get that? Glenn Beck has wasted tens of millions of dollars on various flops since Fox News cut him loose — his bizarre, elaborate, short-lived steampunk musical being just one good example — but this merger is entirely unrelated to his squandered fortune, how dare you suggest anything of the sort? Beck had to work hard at employee layoffs to make this happen. He was firing people as recently as six months ago. Don’t minimize his sacrifices!

Mike Huckabee thought he had the chops to take on Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Spoiler: He didn’t.

The New York Times / YouTube

Mike Huckabee, the former Arkansas governor, Republican presidential primary also-ran, and father of Sarah thought he could come for Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. The wannabe funnyman took a quote about the potentially transformational elections this year and twisted it to suggest that Ocasio-Cortez was all ego, seeing herself as the center of everything. But really, what Huckabee did was tee himself up to be obliterated:

Policy first, with an optimistic push for ambition and greatness. And then not one but two slams on Huckabee’s rhetoric and relevance. This is why she’s so far under the collective Republican skin. The attacks that have so often worked on Democrats not only do not phase her, but she comes back harder and stronger.

Trump Launches Unhinged Rant Over Michael Cohen’s Plea Deal With Mueller, Makes Himself Look Guilty

Trump Launches Unhinged Rant Over Michael Cohen’s Plea Deal With Mueller, Makes Himself Look Guilty

 

Donald Trump’s former lawyer and fixer Michael Cohen asked a federal judge that he not serve prison time Friday, despite pleading guilty to multiple crimes linked to his former client. Cohen has spent 70 hours with special counsel Robert Mueller’s team and that’s really bad for Trump as he is now labeled “Individual 1″ in the investigation, naming the president* as the central figure in the probe.

That happened after Cohen pleaded guilty to lying to Congress for insisting that Trump was not pursuing plans to build a Trump Tower in Moscow after January 2016. That’s in stark contrast to Trump’s repeated claims that he had no business interests in Russia. Cohen said he lied out of loyalty to Trump and his former boss/client is imploding.

“Michael Cohen asks judge for no Prison Time.” You mean he can do all of the TERRIBLE, unrelated to Trump, things having to do with fraud, big loans, Taxis, etc., and not serve a long prison term? He makes up stories to get a GREAT & ALREADY reduced deal for himself, and get his wife and father-in-law (who has the money?) off Scott Free. He lied for this outcome and should, in my opinion, serve a full and complete sentence,” Individual 1 tweeted.

“I will never testify against Trump.” This statement was recently made by Roger Stone, essentially stating that he will not be forced by a rogue and out of control prosecutor to make up lies and stories about “President Trump.” Nice to know that some people still have “guts!” President Exclamation Mark continued.

“Bob Mueller (who is a much different man than people think) and his out of control band of Angry Democrats, don’t want the truth, they only want lies,” he added. “The truth is very bad for their mission!”

OK, first of all, the word he’s looking for his ‘scot-free’ unless “Scott Free” is another individual who is tangled up in the investigation. Also, Trump just admitted that Cohen’s version of events is true and that he should go to prison for protecting his former boss even though the president said it was “unrelated” to him. Cohen was talking to Mueller about Trump’s plans to build a Trump Tower in Moscow. That means it’s related.

In Memo Asking Clemency Cohen Reveals He Worked With Trump’s Lawyers Preparing False Cong. Testimony

 

Well, the orange gasbag ain’t gonna like this….

(forgive the byline)

NY Times

“Michael D. Cohen, President Trump’s former personal lawyer who has twice pleaded guilty to crimes that have implicated Mr. Trump in illegal or questionable conduct, asked a federal judge late Friday night that he be allowed to avoid prison when he is sentenced in less than two weeks.

In a deeply personal memorandum that expressed Mr. Cohen’s contrition and shame and portrayed him as a man whose personal and professional lives had been shattered, his lawyers cited his cooperation with the investigation by the special counsel, Robert S. Mueller III, whose legitimacy is regularly denounced by the president.”

Yeah, yeah I’m sure his contrition and shame were a wonder to behold, but good ole reliable Maggie buried this nugget well down in the copy…

“Mr. Cohen consulted with White House staff members and Mr. Trump’s personal lawyers as he prepared for his false congressional testimony, according to the memo.”

Suck on that, Groppenfuhrer, or should I say…. jailbird…

This upcoming “cat fight” is going to be EPIC!

This upcoming “cat fight” is going to be EPIC!

 

Array

I’m still laughing. You know, I thought that the G20 meeting was supposed to be a serious matter, between serious world leaders. That swing-your-arm-back-a-foot, loud slap, thumb grab handshake between the two international pariahs, Putin and MBS that I was yesterday was the most juvenile display in the history of diplomacy. It looked like a couple of failed frat pledges who just scored a kegger to drown their sorrows.

But such childish shenanigans aside, the spotlight was on the Cheeto Prophet, as it always seems to be at these moments. Trump once again made news by announcing that he was cancelling his one-on-one with Putin over the situation with Ukraine. Here is a guy who changed the GOP convention platform to bar giving the Ukraine lethal defensive weapons, but now he’s got his panties in a bunch over a fender bender between a Russian warship and a Ukrainian tugboat.The Russians immediately gleefully called “bullshit,” noting that Trump’s decision was much more likely caused by Trump’s domestic problems. But hey, at least they didn’t rub in the fact that they were the cause of those domestic problems.

I was gratified to see that, as usual, the media pundits had their heads safely up their collective ass. Everybody was somberly opining that the reason that His Lowness cancelled the meeting with Putin was to avoid having to answer questions about Michael Cohen at the post powwow press conference. This is ridiculous, he already answered questions about Cohen before he got on Trump Force 1. His answer was basically, “So what?” What?” Trump couldn’t afford was having Putin standing at a podium answering questions about Michael Cohen. Look what happened in Helsinki. A reporter asked Putin if he did actually order his GRU to interfere in our election, and did they do so, and Putin answered “Yes, and yes.” Right now, Cohen’s accusations are publicly uncorroborated, the last thing Trump needs is his co-conspirator spilling the beans to the press.

Putin is about to learn what everybody else already knows, namely, that Trump is your best friend until he’s not. Other foreign leaders already know this. When Justin Trudeau was staring adoringly at Trump like a kid watching his Dad show him how to change spark plugs, he was aces. But respond to Trump’s tariffs in kind, and suddenly he’s weak. Likewise with Macron, when he was busy showing off his war toys to Glorious Bleater, Macron was golden. But tell Trump that only idiots withdraw within their own borders, and suddenly it’s time for somebody else to “Make France Great Again!”Trumps problem is simple, the little light has finally gone on when the fridge door was opened. Cohen has finally shown a direct relationship between Trump and the Russian government, while he was running for President. Somebody finally took the plate with his bacon double cheeseburger away from him until he got it through his thick skull that doing everything but flush after he wiped Putin’s ass was making him look like a whiny little sycophant. He was going to have to put his big boy pants on and try to look tough when it came to Vladimir Putin.

This is a ill planned course of action, for two reasons. First, it’s much too late. Trump has been slobbering all over Putin’s face like your dog when you get home from a business trip for too damn long now. Nobody is going to believe a word out of his mouth, especially when he fails to follow up all of that tough talk with any concrete action.

Second, Putin has the goods, and Trump knows it. Forget about the “pee tape” for a minute, that’s just one more disgusting personal foible in Trump’s bottomless supply. What happens if Wikileaks suddenly starts dropping audio tapes of Cohen, or Manafort, or Stone or Corsi or Sater, specifically talking about stolen e-mails, and what to drop when. What is Wikileaks starts dropping receipts of stolen e-mails from Guccifer 2.0, with corroborating communications from Trump connected cronies?The wellspring of incriminating dirt that Putin can dump over Trump’s head is almost infinite. Hey, you lay down with wolves, you wake up with teeth marks.

So, all indications are that we are about to have a very public, screeching cat fight. Which is likely to be both very entertaining, as well as very short lived. Because, the way I see it, one of the fighters is going in declawed. And with Trump being preoccupied with both Cohen as well as Putin, not to even mention the Democratic committees in January, it looks like Paul Manafort is gonna spend a lot of birthdays in the slammer waiting for that pardon to come through. Ain’t payback beautiful?
