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.”

The UK’s Prince Andrew is reportedly nervous” to engage in any international travel in the wake of Ghislane Maxwell’s arrest last week. The UK royal is said to have canceled a golf outing to Spain in the midst of the news, according to reporting from the Sun.

An anonymous source described as a “palace insider” close to the Prince described Andrew as such in remarks to the Sun, stating that it is unlikely the scrutinized royal will leave the UK for some time and that he will probably never visit the United States ever again.

Andrew is a former Jeffrey Epstein associate who is publicly known to have visited the pedophile billionaire’s private island in the Virgin Island. Virginia Roberts, a woman who was trafficked as an underage girl by Epstein and Ghislane Maxwell, alleges that she was ordered to have sex with Prince Andrew when she was 17.

The royal, who was pushed out of representing Britain’s monarchy publicly after an embarassing interview in which he sought to explain his continuing relationship with Epstein even after the financier was convicted of procuring a child for prostitution in 2008. Andrew has refused to cooperate with American federal prosecutors investigating Epstein’s sex trafficking network, meriting a public statement from Southern District of New York prosecutors clarifying that the prince had steadfastly refused to be interviewed by them.
