Roger Stone is putting up a strong fight against prosecutors’ efforts to get a hearing over his Instagram posts, which the prosecution team claims is tantamount to violating his media gag order in the case.
Team Stone is not having it.
Here is the Stone team fighting back against the proposed hearing, pointing out that Stone was merely posting articles from OTHER sites including True Pundit and The Federalist.
The whole Stone case for process crimes — during a Mueller investigation in which NO RUSSIA COLLUSION was found — is totally corrupt and literally a Set-Up.
Special counsel Robert Mueller’s report claimed that Mueller’s office could not locate Alexei Rasin, the Ukrainian who tried to sell supposed Hillary Clinton opposition research to Roger Stone alongside a Russian using the fake name “Henry Greenberg.”
Big League Politics located Alexei Rasin and spoke to him by phone. Rasin did not know that he was in the Mueller report. When told that he appeared in the report, Rasin said, “Wow, quite interesting.” He declined to be interviewed or to state whether or not Mueller ever contacted him.
Mueller clearly did not want to get to the bottom of the evidence that Stone was set up. Stone, who is now charged with process crimes in connection to the investigation, is under a gag order regarding his case. If Mueller had concluded that Stone was set up that could definitely change the Roger Stone criminal case.
Rasin met with Stone in May 2016 alongside Rasin’s associate “Henry Greenberg,” whose name is Gennadiy Vasilievich Vostretsov and who also goes by “Henry Oknyansky.” Greenberg/Vostretsov/Oknyansky was identified by Stone’s lawyer as a longtime FBI informant.
Mueller claimed he could not find Rasin during his investigation, even though Rasin has a current condo address in Naples, Florida, a mailbox address in North Miami, and recently appeared pro se in court to file bankruptcy on loans including a loan from the U.S. Department of Education. Rasin’s court date occurred in November 2017 while the Mueller investigation was active.
Mueller clearly did not make much of an effort to contact this mysterious figure who tried to sell Clinton research to Stone. Big League Politics located phone numbers and email addresses associated with this Ukrainian man after just minutes of research.
“Oknyansky was accompanied to the meeting by Alexei Rasin, a Ukrainian associate involved in Florida real estate. At the meeting, Rasin offered to sell Stone derogatory information on Clinton that Rasin claimed to have obtained while working for Clinton. Rasin claimed to possess financial statements demonstrating Clinton’s involvement in money laundering with Rasin’s companies. According to Oknyansky, Stone asked if the amounts in question totaled millions of dollars but was told it was closer to hundreds of thousands. Stone refused the offer, stating that Trump would not pay for opposition research,” the Mueller report states.
“The Office did not locate Rasin in the United States, although the Office confirmed Rasin had been issued a Florida driver’s license. The Office was otherwise unable to determine the content and origin of the information he purportedly offered to Stone. Finally, the investigation did not identify evidence of a connection between the outreach or the meeting and Russian interference efforts,” the Special Counsel writes in the Mueller report.
How could Mueller not locate Rasin?
Court documents show that Rasin was in bankruptcy court in the Southern District of Florida in Fort Lauderdale representing himself (pro se) filing for bankruptcy in November 2017.
Rasin signed a voluntary petition for bankruptcy on October 13, 2017.
“By way of example, as you know, back in June I sent this Committee a letter regarding a longtime FBI informant named Gennadiy Vasilievich Vostretsov who, under the alias “Henry Greenberg”, was sent to approach my client in May 2016 with claims of having access to information that could impact the election,” Stone’s attorney Grant Smith wrote in a letter to Rep. Devin Nunes prior to Stone’s arrest for alleged process crimes during the course of the Robert Mueller investigation.
“Mr. Stone not only immediately and forcefully declined to participate in anything this FBI informant was proposing, but never saw or spoke to the informant again. Mr. Stone believes it highly likely that Mr. Vostretsov/Greenberg’s status as an FBI informant was not “former”, and that Vostretsov/Greenberg was, in fact, actively working on behalf of the FBI at the time of their meeting, acting upon a calculated effort to entrap Mr. Stone and, further, to infiltrate and compromise the Trump effort. Notably, Vostretsov was admitted to the country nine separate times on an FBI Informant’s visa,” Smith writes on Stone’s behalf.
Merrick Garland Suggests that Getting Rid of Lawsuit Protections is Not a Second Amendment Violation
Garland as AG will be a disaster for the right to bear arms.
If Merrick Garland is nominated as Attorney General, the Second Amendment is in big trouble.
Based on his comments at a Senate hearing on February 22, 2021, Garland made a suggestion that the repeal of lawsuit protections for gun manufacturers is not unconstitutional.
AWR Hawkins of Breitbart News reminded his readers that President Joe Biden campaigned on a platform of repealing the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act (PLCAA), which shielded lawful gun manufacturers from lawsuits.
In a previous Breitbart News report, Biden spoke at an MSNBC forum in 2019 alongside gun control organizations such as March for Our Lives where he expressed his support for gun manufacturers to be subject to lawsuits.
At the speech, Biden suggested that the PLCC be repealed. He declared, “No other outfit in history has gotten this kind of protection” and asserted that the legal actions would bring about “change overnight.”
In a subsequent occasion on February 7, 2020, Breitbart News covered Biden’s remarks to a New Hampshire crowd, in which he stated that it was a “mistake” to shield firearms manufacturers from lawsuits. He continued, “The first thing I’m going to do as president is work to get rid of that.”
Later that month, Breitbart News recalled how Biden called out gun manufacturers at a South Carolina rally and boasted, “I’m going to take you down.”
According to a report by The Salt Lake Tribune, Utah Senator Mike Lee asked Garland about his views on removing protections for gun manufacturers. Garland responded, “I have not thought myself deeply about this. I don’t think it raises a Second Amendment issue.”
When he was questioned if he is in favor of Biden’s plans to ban so-called “assault weapons”, Garland responded, “Where there is room under the law for the president’s policies to be pursued, then I think the president is entitled to pursue them.”
Biden’s track record as a gun control proponent is well-documented. From his support of gun-free zones at schools to the 1994 Assault Weapons Ban, Biden is Gun Control Inc.’s guy. With Democrats in control of the House and the Senate, there will most certainly be attempts to ram gun control down our throats. If they can’t beat us legislatively, they will most certainly use the courts to undermine the Second Amendment. Pro-gun organizations should be ready to lawyer up and use whatever means possible to keep courts from destroying our rights.
