CONFLICT: Cohen Prosecutor’s Wife’s Firm Is Being Investigated By The Trump Administration

Published

on

The New York deputy U.S. Attorney who accepted Michael Cohen’s plea deal, Robert Khuzami, is married to a lobbyist whose Chicago-based clearing house is currently being investigated by President Donald Trump’s SEC director.

This clear conflict of interest taints the case being waged against Trump through Cohen, according to Washington insiders.

The anti-Trump conspirators are changing their strategy. Since Robert Mueller found no Russian collusion and his team is tainted by Clinton conflicts of interest and ethical breaches, the conspirators are now  focusing on the Cohen case waged by the U.S. Attorney’s office in New York. Mueller is not going to score, so Democrats are banking on Khuzami instead.

Fired former U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara, whose former underlings are now running the ship on the anti-Trump case, is making the new strategy clear:

But Khuzami and his team are colored by their own conflicts of interest.

Khuzami was the general counsel of Deutsche Bank, which has taken a sizable hit due to Trump tariffs and the Brexit election, prompting the bank to advocate against protectionist trade policies. The Deutsche Bank CEO has spoken out against Trump’s policies and in favor of so-called “free trade.”

Khuzami’s wife Julie Bauer is senior vice president of Options Clearing Corporation since September 2016. She previously handled government relations for FINRA.

The Wall Street Journal report just this month: “The company tasked with curbing risk in the U.S. options market is under investigation by federal regulators for how it handled a recent period of market turbulence, according to people familiar with the matter. The probes from the Securities and Exchange Commission and Commodity Futures Trading Commission include concerns that Options Clearing Corp. failed to accurately forecast how much cash would be needed to cover trading losses triggered by a spike in volatility last February, some of the people said.”

How interesting!

A well-connected Washington insider tells Big League Politics about the anti-Trump plotters’ change in strategy:

“Mueller and Rosenstein are smart enough to realize that the Special Counsel is too tainted to be effective due to the corruption uncovered about Strzok, Ohr and Steele. I suspect they realize that in order to draw away Republicans in an impeachment trial, they need to faint a clean investigative unit. So their strategy was to go after Trump through Cohen in New York. They either knew or were sure that the New York appointed US Attorney Geoffrey Berman would recuse himself and that would leave Preet Bharara’s leftovers.”

WATCH: Tucker SLAMS Lindsey Graham For EB5 Visa Giveaway Scheme Amidst Coronavirus Epidemic

Graham wants to use the crisis to boost immigration visas.

Published

on

Tucker Carlson took South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham to task in a segment on his show Thursday night, blasting the opportunistic Senator for seeking to insert an immigration visa giveaway into upcoming Coronavirus stimulus legislation.

Graham is attempting to enact a raise in the annual level of EB-5 visas. The controversial program allows wealthy foreigners to enter the United States on the basis of supposed investment they make into the economy.

Graham is lobbying President Trump to agree to a massive boost to the program-raising annual EB-5 visa levels from a current total of 10,000 to 75,000. Graham also seeks to lower the threshold of investment for an EB-5 from $900,000 to $450,000.

In a display of tone-deaf politics taken to a new level, the EB-5 program Graham seeks to expand is currently commonly used by wealthy Chinese citizens to purchase American residency and citizenship. Allowing a free path to residency for China’s richest multi-millionaires and billionaires almost certainly would provide the Chinese government a means of entryism into major American institutions and society, in an age where the American public is more distrustful and skeptical of Chinese influence than ever before.

Graham has also gone on record advocating for a bailout of big businesses and private companies, while opposing direct basic income transfers to everyday working American families.

American citizenship is not a mere bauble to be offered for sale in a time of crisis, especially considering the EB-5’s dubious benefits on the American economy. The verification mechanisms for the visa recipients’ investments in American jobs are notoriously weak, to the extent that both major parties agreed to scale back the program last year.

America is a country, not merely an economy. It’s well past time Senator Graham gives up his constant attempt to retcon old globalist policies into President Donald Trump’s administration, especially in times of national emergency.
