Let’s see how Judge Wood will do no favors for Cohen.
Let’s see what the MSM didn’t report [read for yourself]
Lawyer for Cohen: We received 3.7 million files from the gov't. We have been through 1.3 million files already.
Evidence has been sent over to lawyers for President Trump and the Trump Organization.
Cohen Lawyer: Judge, we need more time to go through the MILLIONS of files dumped on us by the gov't. Give us until Mid-July to complete the evidence review; let's have a status conference on this issue in 30 days.
Wait. Was pedophile Jeffrey Epstein an informant for Mueller's FBI?
From the 5/24/18 FBI Vault release: "Epstein has also provided information to the FBI as agreed upon."
Is that why he escaped serious charges for molesting over twenty girls?
Here's the thing: I'm seeing nothing in Epstein's 2007 plea deal with the DOJ that required him to provide information to the FBI. (see pics)
This begs the question of whether there was a separate agreement - still undisclosed - with the FBI.
It's not a conspiracy if it fits the behavior of the parties involved. Remember, subsequent civil suits uncovered efforts by the DOJ to keep the plea deal secret from the public and the girls Epstein molested.
While the May 4 hearing in US v. Manafort before Judge Ellis certainly got more
exposure, there was also the April 19 Manafort hearing before Judge Amy Berman Jackson in DC.
Judge Berman considered the following:
1) Jurisdictional challenges to the Special Counsel 2) Motions to dismis multiplicitious charges 3) Motions to strike the laundering/forfeiture allegations
Compared to Judge Ellis, Judge Berman was less skeptical about challenges to the Rosenstein appointment order, noting it said "any links and/or coordination between the Russian government and individuals associated with the campaign."
Arguments by Manafort’s counsel: (1) Rosenstein’s Order appointing the Special Counsel exceeds his authority. (2) the superseding indictment “extends beyond the scope of jurisdiction that the [Order] purports to grant.”
The Order grants “carte blanche to investigate and prosecute ‘any matters’ that might arise” from Trump/Russia investigation.
“The Order thus permits the sort of unaccountable, ‘sprawl[ing]’ investigation the Special Counsel Regulations were designed to prevent."
Let me tell you about that time the FBI - from the Director down to the agents - framed four innocent men for murdering a small-time gangster.
1964: “Teddy” Deegan (pictured) was a hood in the northeast who owed money to the brother of FBI informant (and fellow gangster) Jimmy Flemmi.
1964-65: FBI wires showed that the murder of Deegan was imminent. Two days before the murder, an FBI informant reported that one of the heads of organized crime in New England gave the “OK” to murder Deegan.
That statement from Susan Rice's lawyer denying knowledge of a FISA warrant, and justifying the efforts of Rice, Comey, and Obama to hide intelligence from the Trump administration is.... very Bill Clinon-esque.
The letter admits that all parties to the meeting – Yates, Comey, Rice, and Obama – knew of the substance of the communications of members of Trump's team BEFORE and AFTER the election.
Obama sought guidance on the topic. He knew. They all knew.
“There was no discussion of Christopher Steele or the Steele dossier.”
This leaves open the possibility that the allegations within the Steele dossier were discussed.
