REPORT: Rosenstein Got Cohen Info Days Before Whitaker

Published

on

Matthew Whitaker’s ascension to acting attorney general gave optimism to President Trump supporters tired of the cynical manipulation of our Justice Department by anti-Trump actors. But that optimism might be premature — or at least complicated.

Rod Rosenstein is reportedly still getting information before Whitaker when it comes to the Michael Cohen case that the

Fox News reports: “Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein’s office was notified of former Trump attorney Michael Cohen’s plea deal at least two days before Acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker received the same information, Fox News has learned…But a source familiar with the timeline told Fox News that Whitaker was only informed of the impending plea deal between Mueller and Cohen on Wednesday afternoon. A source close to President Trump confirmed they were informed Wednesday evening…”

That’s not good. Matthew Whitaker seemingly needs to assert himself more at his new job, since he is technically overseeing the Mueller special counsel investigation. He is also technically overseeing the federal prosecutors who are coming after — and working with — Michael Cohen.

The Cohen case is being run out of New York and it’s just as much of a partisan circus as the Mueller “investigation.”

I reported:

Michael Cohen’s new attorney Guy Petrillo — part of a team with Amy Lester — represents Cohen as he gives information over to New York prosecutors as part of his cooperation related to his crime of lying to investigators. Those prosecutors are still loyal to anti-Trump activist Preet Bharara, the U.S. attorney fired by the Trump administration.

“Petrillo and his wife live in Chappaqua and run in the same circles as the Clintons,” a top-level FBI source told Big League Politics on the record.

Big League Politics has confirmed that Cohen’s attorney resides less than a three-mile drive from the Hillary Clinton residence, but we have redacted all addresses.

Cohen recently changed his party registration back to Democrat and told people to vote in the midterms against President Trump.

Politico described how Petrillo’s firm represented Andrew Cuomo in his dealings:

Prosecutors Move to Drop Charges Against Russians Charged By Robert Mueller

A nothingburger all along.

Published

on

Federal prosecutors have given a tacit admission of the pointlessness of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Russian conspiracy probe one year after its conclusion, dropping charges against the Russian nationals accused of orchestrating an “election interference” operation in the United States during the 2016 election.

Court documents revealed that the prosecutors are dropping charges on Monday.

Concord Management is a Russian company accused of being the parent of the Internet Research Agency, another Russian entity that Mueller accused of running troll farms that post memes and comment online about the 2016 election. 12 employees of Concord Management were charged by Mueller for the supposed operation.

The individuals in question weren’t American residents, and only some of them were present in the country for a period.

The prosecutors overseeing the case against the Russians admitted that there was no chance the individuals, who live across the world, would be meaningfully punished for their supposed election interference operations.

The men were said to be agents of the Russian state intelligence agency known as the GRU. Mueller claimed that they were responsible for the infamous hack of the DNC’s email servers during the 2016 Democratic convention.

Concord, a Russian company with no presence in the United States and no exposure to meaningful punishment in the event of a conviction, promotes neither the interests of justice or the nation’s security… The better course is to cease litigation as to the Concord defendants.

It was quite obvious since the beginning that wire fraud charges against Russian residents with no presence in the United States was going to be a fruitless endeavor, but the Deep State’s man intended to deliver a gesture for the bureaucratic entity, regardless of the substance behind it.

Already largely forgotten, the Mueller probe appears set to enter the memory hole as little more than a pointless hoax in light of the dismissed charges against supposed “election interference” perpetrators.
