Mueller Strong-Arms Manafort, Says He Can’t Use Political Targeting As Defense

He really just did that.

The former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort, who is currently in jail, has been strong-armed by Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s team with a simple message that he can’t use his role in Donald Trump’s Presidential campaign as a defense against his charges. In a court filing obtained by Politico, it is made clear that Robert Mueller doesn’t want Manafort’s legal team to be able to argue with jurors that he was targeted for his role.

“Manafort should … be precluded from arguing that he has been singled out for prosecution because of his position in the campaign of then-candidate Donald J. Trump, or otherwise asserting that he has been selectively prosecuted by the Special Counsel’s Office,” Mueller’s team wrote.

Manafort was indicted on charges of alleged money laundering and failure to register as an agent of a foreign government. While he was initially placed on house arrest, he was sent to jail earlier this month for alleged witness tampering.

The former campaign chairmen for President Donald J. Trump has been ordered to jail pending trial for alleged money laundering and failure to register as an agent of a foreign government.

“The harm in this case is harm to the administration of justice and harm to the integrity of the court’s system,” Judge Amy Berman Jackson told Paul Manafort in the United States District Court for the District of Columbia.

Manafort is accused of calling and texting potential witnesses in upcoming trial. He was originally given a $10 million bail and sentenced to house arrest while his charges were pending. Manafort also entered a not guilty plea for witness tampering charges. His trial is set for September.

In response, President Donald Trump took to Twitter to allude towards the fact that his arrest was politically motivated, asking about why former FBI Director James Comey and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton did not face a similar fate for their alleged wrongdoings.

While Robert Mueller’s decision is likely a calculated one designed to make it harder for Manafort to find a solid defense against his charges, it also proves something he likely was not intending to do. Left-leaning news outlets have been pushing Manafort’s indictment as definitive proof of corruption during the 2016 election, and that Robert Mueller is correct in his push to prove Donald Trump colluded with Russia. This court filing states, directly from the mouth of Robert Mueller, that those claims made by the media are false and that Manafort being convicted has absolutely nothing to do with President Trump.

This decision may be a win for Robert Mueller in his push to convict Manafort, but it is not a win for his Russia collusion investigation.

Is the FBI Preparing to Revoke 1st Amendment Protections for Trump Supporters?

Ripping off the mask.

Published

on

After last week’s mostly peaceful protests at the Capitol, the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) intends to browbeat and scrutinize Trump supporters as criminals, CNN has announced.

The rationale is that all Trump supporters are “extremists,” and if their constitutional rights are honored and protected, they might commit domestic terrorism, or something. 

“Federal officials stressed on the call with state, local, tribal and college campus law enforcement leaders that the FBI will not tolerate extremists using the First Amendment as a guide to incite violence,” CNN reported.

Predictably, the Rooskies are being trotted out as a familiar scapegoat for the growing anger that is building against corrupt government officials in both parties.

“According to the source, federal officials said on the call that Russian actors have been amplifying the false narrative that members of Antifa infiltrated Trump supporters during the riot at the US Capitol, and the Chinese have seized on news stories showing chaos in the US,” CNN reported.

According to the article, the FBI, Department of Homeland Security and Office of the Director of National Intelligence are predicting that more violence is on the way.

“The violent breach of the US Capitol Building is very likely part of an ongoing trend in which (extremists) exploit lawful protests, rallies, and demonstrations, and other gatherings to carry out ideologically-motivated violence and criminal activity,” an intelligence brief from the deep state agencies stated.

Big League Politics has reported on the massive crackdown that has ensued since last week’s siege of the U.S. Capitol, which has put the entire political establishment on notice:

Meghan McCain, the venomously anti-Trump daughter of deceased Sen. John McCain, is calling for President Donald Trump’s supporters to be put into Guantanamo Bay.

McCain is calling for Trump supporters who participated in the infamous and historic Capitol siege in Washington D.C. last week to be detained in the facility typically used to hold foreign terrorists.

“I just think we need to treat domestic terrorists the way we do actual terrorists. I think we need to consider all possibilities. I’m not against sending these people to Gitmo. These are domestic terrorists who attacked our own Republic. They should be treated the same way we treat Al Qaeda,” she said during a discussion on ABC’s “The View.”

… McCain also endorsed impeaching President Trump or removing him with the 25th Amendment, thinking this incredible overreach would somehow prevent the likelihood of violence…

The events of last week have exposed who the RINOs are once and for all. The civil war within the Republican Party over the next election cycle will be epic.

The mask has been ripped off. Fair elections are no more, the Constitution is toilet paper, and the deep state will be treating patriotic Americans like ISIS.
