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

He really just did that.

Published

on

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.

CIA Whistleblower: Hillary Clinton Laundered Russian Money Through Uranium One

Published

on

Former CIA agent Kevin Shipp made bombshell revelations in an interview with Greg Hunter about the Hillary Clinton case. Is Hillary Clinton about to be indicted in connection with the Uranium One deal?

Shipp calls the Operation Crossfire Hurricane plot “a subversive effort to undermine the Constitution,” and that funding came from overseas. According to Shipp:

Russian intelligence easily duped Hillary Clinton into entering into the Uranium One deal. Hillary Clinton then used Uranium One to launder money worldwide as Russians pumped money into her deal. In fact, Russian intelligence “targeted” Hillary Clinton knowing she would be susceptible to corruption.

Watch The Interview Here:

As Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu presses world leaders to act on Iran’s growing secret nuclear program, a very obvious aspect of the case is being ignored by the mainstream media.

Hillary Clinton famously sold about 20 percent of U.S. uranium to the Russians, during her tenure at the Obama State Department, in a move that set off massive alarms about pay-to-play with the Clinton Foundation. But the “Uranium One” deal might have just been Part One of the scheme.

The Obama administration — which shipped Iran boatloads of cash toward the end of Obama’s term — oversaw the transfer of Russian uranium to the Iranians.

At least ten nuclear bombs’ worth!

Luke Rohlfing reports:

An FBI informant with first hand experience in the Uranium One deal testified to congress that Moscow paid millions of dollars to a U.S. lobbying firm in order to influence then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton by helping Bill Clinton’s charities during the Obama administration.

The informant, Douglas Campbell, gave a ten-page statement to the Senate Judiciary Committee, House Intelligence Committee, and House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, as well as being interviewed for several hours by committee staff.

According to Fox News, in the statement, Campbell stated that Russian executives told him that they were hiring APCO Worldwide in order to influence Hillary Clinton and the Obama Administration.

In the statement, Campbell said that “the contract called for four payments of $750,000 over twelve months,” and that “APCO was expected to give assistance free of charge to the Clinton Global Initiative as part of their effort to create a favorable environment to ensure the Obama administration made affirmative decisions on everything from Uranium One to the US-Russia Civilian Nuclear Cooperation agreement.”

Subsequently, APCO did end up taking up client work on behalf of the Clinton Global Initiative from 2008-2016. APCO claims that those projects were “totally separate and unconnected in any way” to Uranium One.

Uranium One is a Canadian mining company whose sale to a Russian firm was approved in 2010. The sale, which had to be approved by the U.S. government, gave Russians control of a part of the U.S. uranium supply. The negotiation tactics from the Russians began to come under fire after FBI gained evidence that Russian operatives used bribes, kickbacks, and other dirty tactics to expand Russia’s atomic energy footprint in the U.S.
The testimony of Douglas Campbell has provided some of the most damning evidence proving corruption in the negotiations.
