@RepJerryNadler @MrM1S @seanhannity @seanmdav @realDonaldTrump @RealJamesWoods @JesseBWatters @greggutfeld Nadler has started his circus this morning trying to force Bill Barr to break the law. He's going against his argument he made in the prior video I posted, and he is leading his argument with rules under "Independent Counsel."
@RepJerryNadler @MrM1S @seanhannity @seanmdav @realDonaldTrump @RealJamesWoods @JesseBWatters @greggutfeld When most people think of the position, they probably think of Ken Starr and his long investigation into Clinton, which eventually resulted in a Congressional impeachment trial.
@RepJerryNadler @MrM1S @seanhannity @seanmdav @realDonaldTrump @RealJamesWoods @JesseBWatters @greggutfeld Here's the rub, though: Starr's investigation was conducted through the Office of Independent Counsel, which no longer exists, since the law establishing it expired in 1999.
@RepJerryNadler @MrM1S @seanhannity @seanmdav @realDonaldTrump @RealJamesWoods @JesseBWatters @greggutfeld That law, passed in 1978, was a response to Watergate and created a separate prosecutor office to avoid conflicts-of-interest questions by having an independent counsel appointed by a panel of judges from the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia.
@RepJerryNadler @MrM1S @seanhannity @seanmdav @realDonaldTrump @RealJamesWoods @JesseBWatters @greggutfeld Why is Robert Mueller called a "special counsel"? It's largely terminology. The new regulations under special counsels are currently appointed refer to the position as a "special counsel."
@RepJerryNadler @MrM1S @seanhannity @seanmdav @realDonaldTrump @RealJamesWoods @JesseBWatters @greggutfeld When the function was created, in response to the Watergate investigation, it was known as "special prosecutor", and the individual was appointed by a judicial panel.
@RepJerryNadler @MrM1S @seanhannity @seanmdav @realDonaldTrump @RealJamesWoods @JesseBWatters @greggutfeld The only person with the power to appoint an individual in these circumstances, under current law, is the Attorney General, who at the time, the Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, because of Jeff Sessions' recusal.
@RepJerryNadler @MrM1S @seanhannity @seanmdav @realDonaldTrump @RealJamesWoods @JesseBWatters @greggutfeld Okay so what are the limitations of the Special Counsel? Mueller is for the most part acting as a Special Case US Attorney assigned to the DOJ and located in DC in the Main Justice building known as the RFK Building. They answer directly to the DAG and AG that's it.
@RepJerryNadler @MrM1S @seanhannity @seanmdav @realDonaldTrump @RealJamesWoods @JesseBWatters @greggutfeld Prosecutors are not damn journalists, and their job is not to inform the public of the results of their investigations, their job is to gather all of the relevant facts & determine whether a crime was committed &, if so whether it can be proved in court beyond a reasonable doubt.
@RepJerryNadler @MrM1S @seanhannity @seanmdav @realDonaldTrump @RealJamesWoods @JesseBWatters @greggutfeld Their actual job, when done right, is done in secret. That means that if critical evidence was found in the case but it was in, say, Russia and therefore out of reach, then it would be wrong to seek an indictment. Critically, the entire investigation would then remain secret.
@RepJerryNadler @MrM1S @seanhannity @seanmdav @realDonaldTrump @RealJamesWoods @JesseBWatters @greggutfeld It would be a violation of law for a prosecutor to make public the results of a grand jury investigation that did not result in an indictment per Rule 6(e). So a special counsel could find incriminating information and keep it secret forever.
@RepJerryNadler @MrM1S @seanhannity @seanmdav @realDonaldTrump @RealJamesWoods @JesseBWatters @greggutfeld However, a special counsel, in an effort to justify its efforts and expenditures, would have a ton of incentive to get a prosecution even if it's unnecessary or unwarranted. Some would say that's what happened here in a few cases.
@RepJerryNadler @MrM1S @seanhannity @seanmdav @realDonaldTrump @RealJamesWoods @JesseBWatters @greggutfeld So back to Nadler's argument and trying to compare the Mueller investigation to the Starr investigation. Starr acted pursuant to a statute passed by Congress.
@RepJerryNadler @MrM1S @seanhannity @seanmdav @realDonaldTrump @RealJamesWoods @JesseBWatters @greggutfeld It was called the Ethics and Government Act of 1978, the law authorized Starr to send information he collected to the United States Congress and to provide recommendations related to impeachment of the person under investigation.
@RepJerryNadler @MrM1S @seanhannity @seanmdav @realDonaldTrump @RealJamesWoods @JesseBWatters @greggutfeld Starr’s report to the House of Representatives included all sorts of sexually explicit details on Clinton’s affair with Monica Lewinsky although, as we know, Clinton himself was not indicted.
@RepJerryNadler @MrM1S @seanhannity @seanmdav @realDonaldTrump @RealJamesWoods @JesseBWatters @greggutfeld The Supreme Court upheld the statute as constitutional despite its creation of a prosecutor who didn’t answer to the president, who is the boss of all federal prosecutors under Article II of the Constitution. However that law lapsed in 1999.
@RepJerryNadler @MrM1S @seanhannity @seanmdav @realDonaldTrump @RealJamesWoods @JesseBWatters @greggutfeld What replaced it was not a statute, but a regulation. A regulation is a rule with the power of law created by an agency instead of Congress. Now regulations are always constitutionally problematic because they are not passed by Congress, but by the executive branch.
@RepJerryNadler @MrM1S @seanhannity @seanmdav @realDonaldTrump @RealJamesWoods @JesseBWatters @greggutfeld Now all you that remember School House Rock, their civics lesson taught everyone that most of the time, regulations must be promulgated pursuant to what’s known as the notice and comment process, which requires that agencies get the public’s input before they become law.
@RepJerryNadler @MrM1S @seanhannity @seanmdav @realDonaldTrump @RealJamesWoods @JesseBWatters @greggutfeld The regulation governing Mueller was created internally by DOJ lawyers who reported to the president.
@RepJerryNadler @MrM1S @seanhannity @seanmdav @realDonaldTrump @RealJamesWoods @JesseBWatters @greggutfeld The regulation does not authorize the creation of a comprehensive report to Congress; instead, it requires the special counsel to forward a “confidential” report to the attorney general.
@RepJerryNadler @MrM1S @seanhannity @seanmdav @realDonaldTrump @RealJamesWoods @JesseBWatters @greggutfeld Any further disclosure to Congress or anyone else is up to AG Bill Barr, a Trump appointee who answers to the president.
@RepJerryNadler @MrM1S @seanhannity @seanmdav @realDonaldTrump @RealJamesWoods @JesseBWatters @greggutfeld Here’s the irony! The 2 functional barriers to holding any president accountable for wrongdoing short of impeachment under the current legal regime i.e. the “no indictment” rule and the “confidential report” rule were both created by people within the chain of command to the…
@RepJerryNadler @MrM1S @seanhannity @seanmdav @realDonaldTrump @RealJamesWoods @JesseBWatters @greggutfeld …Executive Office of the President. Who was that president? William Jefferson Clinton. And who was the leader of that agency that created these regulations? AG Janet Reno. What a slippery slope you have to deal with on the left.
@RepJerryNadler @MrM1S @seanhannity @seanmdav @realDonaldTrump @RealJamesWoods @JesseBWatters @greggutfeld Now for some damn facts, the Mueller investigation is much broader, deeper in scope, and substantially more serious than the Starr investigation ever was.
@RepJerryNadler @MrM1S @seanhannity @seanmdav @realDonaldTrump @RealJamesWoods @JesseBWatters @greggutfeld The Clinton probe began as an investigation into a failed Arkansas land deal brokered by Clinton friend and real estate investor Jim McDougal. McDougal later bought a small savings and loan business.
@RepJerryNadler @MrM1S @seanhannity @seanmdav @realDonaldTrump @RealJamesWoods @JesseBWatters @greggutfeld He was convicted of fraud in connection with that enterprise, along with his wife, Susan McDougal; Jim Guy Tucker, who was Arkansas governor after Clinton; and Webster Hubbell, Hillary Clinton’s former law partner.
@RepJerryNadler @MrM1S @seanhannity @seanmdav @realDonaldTrump @RealJamesWoods @JesseBWatters @greggutfeld A total of 15 people were convicted of various charges in connection with Whitewater. So there were actual crimes committed and there were actual convictions on the record in order to give a bases to appoint Ken Starr to investigated the POTUS.
@RepJerryNadler @MrM1S @seanhannity @seanmdav @realDonaldTrump @RealJamesWoods @JesseBWatters @greggutfeld That is a key requirement in appointing either an independent counsel or in this case a special counsel.
@RepJerryNadler @MrM1S @seanhannity @seanmdav @realDonaldTrump @RealJamesWoods @JesseBWatters @greggutfeld What crimes were committed, charged, and convicted in advance of the appointment of Robert Mueller? Answer: None. Winning an election is not a crime.
@RepJerryNadler @MrM1S @seanhannity @seanmdav @realDonaldTrump @RealJamesWoods @JesseBWatters @greggutfeld Now Starr's investigation was expanded to include (among other tangential matters) the investigation of Clinton’s spurious denial in a civil deposition of his sexual affair with Lewinsky.
@RepJerryNadler @MrM1S @seanhannity @seanmdav @realDonaldTrump @RealJamesWoods @JesseBWatters @greggutfeld Most people only remember the BJ in the Oval and forget there were actually other crimes committed leading up to the appointment of Starr as Independent Prosecutor.
@RepJerryNadler @MrM1S @seanhannity @seanmdav @realDonaldTrump @RealJamesWoods @JesseBWatters @greggutfeld But the perjury happened after Starr had already been appointed and the panel of judges expanded Starr's powers to look into the fact that the POTUS had committed perjury in the middle of the other investigation. Again an actual crime committed.
@RepJerryNadler @MrM1S @seanhannity @seanmdav @realDonaldTrump @RealJamesWoods @JesseBWatters @greggutfeld Again what was the crime leading up to the appointment of Mueller? Collusion? That's not a crime, if show someone please show me the statute.
@RepJerryNadler @MrM1S @seanhannity @seanmdav @realDonaldTrump @RealJamesWoods @JesseBWatters @greggutfeld Even so Mueller found there was no collusion, conspiracy to commit collusion by the POTUS or anyone in his campaign, and as far as that goes no American in general.
@RepJerryNadler @MrM1S @seanhannity @seanmdav @realDonaldTrump @RealJamesWoods @JesseBWatters @greggutfeld What the the Mueller probe has done is secure a jury trial conviction of former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort, where he was indicted by a grand jury and tried and convicted for crimes that had nothing to do with the campaign and not even in the time of the campaign, in…
@RepJerryNadler @MrM1S @seanhannity @seanmdav @realDonaldTrump @RealJamesWoods @JesseBWatters @greggutfeld …fact some of the crimes were over a decade old. What does Nadler need with any of that grand jury testimony? Are they investigating Trump or are they trying to retry Manafort?
@RepJerryNadler @MrM1S @seanhannity @seanmdav @realDonaldTrump @RealJamesWoods @JesseBWatters @greggutfeld Mueller gained unindicted convictions & guilty pleas from former Trump aides/associates, Michael Flynn, Rick Gates, George Papadopoulos
@RepJerryNadler @MrM1S @seanhannity @seanmdav @realDonaldTrump @RealJamesWoods @JesseBWatters @greggutfeld Mueller also got iunindicted convections and guilty pleas from a guy from California named Richard Pinedo, and an UK banker named Alex van der Zwaan, who worked for Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom. Neither of the last two people worked for Trump or the campaign in any way.
@RepJerryNadler @MrM1S @seanhannity @seanmdav @realDonaldTrump @RealJamesWoods @JesseBWatters @greggutfeld Mueller has indicted Roger Stone, Konstantin Kilimnik, 13 Russian nationals, three Russian entities and 12 Russian military intelligence officers.
@RepJerryNadler @MrM1S @seanhannity @seanmdav @realDonaldTrump @RealJamesWoods @JesseBWatters @greggutfeld One of those Russian entities indicted didn't even exist at the time it is accused of criminal activity in the indictment, basically backing up the old saying, a good prosecutor can indict a ham sandwich.
@RepJerryNadler @MrM1S @seanhannity @seanmdav @realDonaldTrump @RealJamesWoods @JesseBWatters @greggutfeld There are those on the left trying their hand at whataboutism saying "Well what about what Comey did on July 5th 2016?" What Comey did was against DOJ policy yes, but none of that was grand jury testimony, because Hillary's crimes were never taken before a grand jury as they…
@RepJerryNadler @MrM1S @seanhannity @seanmdav @realDonaldTrump @RealJamesWoods @JesseBWatters @greggutfeld …should have been. So there really is no comparison in that and the Mueller report. None of what Comey disclosed falls under Title 3 Rule 6(e) protections. law.cornell.edu/rules/frcrmp/r…
@RepJerryNadler @MrM1S @seanhannity @seanmdav @realDonaldTrump @RealJamesWoods @JesseBWatters @greggutfeld All this over the 6(e) protected stuff is pretty comical since none of it involves the person Nadler claims they are investigating.
@RepJerryNadler @MrM1S @seanhannity @seanmdav @realDonaldTrump @RealJamesWoods @JesseBWatters @greggutfeld Only Manafort was indicted by a grand jury and as I said before none of it is related to the campaign or anything within the 123 days campaign time frame that Manafort was involved with the Trump campaign.
@RepJerryNadler @MrM1S @seanhannity @seanmdav @realDonaldTrump @RealJamesWoods @JesseBWatters @greggutfeld We the taxpayers who are footing the bill for this entire fiasco are stuck watching this political kabuki theater, with the interest of watching ping pong down at the old folks home rec center in Weslaco Texas...
