Former Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick Claims He’s a Deep State Victim, Urges Trump to Commute His Prison Sentence

The popular Detroit Mayor claims that the feds were out to get him.

Former Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick is issuing high praise to President Donald Trump in the hopes that the President will commute his 28-year prison sentence for corruption charges.

“I first want to congratulate you for the overwhelming and stunning victories of your Presidential campaign, and also the unprecedented success of your first two-years in office. You have shaken up the entire world…and that is a great thing to behold,” Kilpatrick wrote on Apr. 16 in a letter to Trump. “I pray your success daily!”

In the letter that was obtained by Deadline Detroit, Kilpatrick argues that the judge and trial attorney had a conflict of interest that resulted in an overly lengthy conviction. Kilpatrick took his case apart point-by-point for the President to consider, arguing for a commutation of his sentence.

“I applaud your boldness and tenacity in confronting the traditional and sometimes deformed politics of our country. You have vociferously exposed the treacherous and calculating schemes of our media and government that have worked to crush families, communities, and even Truth itself. Thank you for standing up, speaking out, and exposing this wickedness,” wrote Kilpatrick, who has been a Democrat his entire life.

Kilpatrick attacked U.S. Attorney Barbara McQuade, who he noted was an Obama appointee, for prosecutorial overreach because she filed a RICO conspiracy charge against him.

“Even if you believe everything else that the Feds have in my case, without the RICO Conspiracy conviction, I could not have received more than a 96-month sentence (8 years). I have already been incarcerated nearly 8 years,” Kilpatrick wrote.

He compared himself to Trump in the letter, claiming that the deep state is out to stop champions of the people from obtaining leadership positions in government.

“The Feds opened their investigation against me in February of 2002, just one-month after I took office. The feds are politicians. They choose sides in elections. They didn’t want me to win. I wasn’t their choice. I ran a grass roots, people-driven campaign, and shook up the establishment. I beat them twice! I know you know a great deal about this,” Kilpatrick wrote.

Kilpatrick was sentenced to 28 years behind bars in Oct. 2013. Judge Nancy Edmunds admonished Kilpatrick for cronyism and nepotism that further tarnished the beleaguered city’s poor reputation.

“We lost transparency, we lost accountability,” Edmunds said.

“That way of doing government is over, it’s done,” she added.

“I really, really, really messed up,” Kilpatrick admitted at the time.

But years later, Kilpatrick has a new angle – painting himself as a deep state victim rather than another corrupt liberal city mayor. If his letter ever reaches Trump’s desk, do not expect the President to comply with the requests of this Democrat felon.

OOPS: Intelligence Community Admits Briefing Over Russian Interference For Trump, Sanders “Overstated”

The experts got it wrong again.

Published

on

Figures within the U.S intelligence community are rushing to walk back reports that the intel community has concluded Russia is waging election interference operations with the express intent of re-electing President Donald Trump and boosting the campaign of Democratic frontrunner.

Reports of the intel community’s purported conclusion on the matter surfaced days ago, when the Washington Post reported that the entity had briefed the campaign of Bernie Sanders on Russian attempts to assist his candidacy.

Now, national security officials have sought to clarify the matter, explaining to CNN that the individual tasked with providing Sanders a brief on the topic “overstated” the intelligence community’s beliefs.

The vaguely defined intelligence community apparently has concluded that Russia is orchestrating purported interference campaigns in the election. But it’s much less clear if Russia is explicitly looking to re-elect Trump as President.

Two intelligence community officials who spoke to CNN described the leading media characterization of intelligence on Russian interference as poor. One said it “lacked nuance,” and another outright described it as “misleading.

A more reasonable interpretation of the intelligence is not that they have a preference, it’s a step short of that. It’s more that they understand the President is someone they can work with, he’s a dealmaker,” one bureaucrat was quoted as saying by CNN.

Reports of wide-ranging Russian interference have proven as wildly unreliable as any widely-reported on story in the American political press in the last four years. After Robert Mueller’s dramatic and seemingly endless probe ended in an outright flop- failing to produce evidence of any “collusion” between the Trump campaign and questionably impactful Russian social media trolling operations, it’s safe to say anything the mainstream media reports on the unending conspiracy should be treated with skepticism.
