Is Mueller “Sweating Out” Paul Manafort?

A recent report is troubling for both sides.

Robert Mueller

Not surprisingly, Americans are growing ever more tired of the ridiculous #RussiaGate witch hunt that Robert Mueller has been conducting, despite the Special Counsel’s inability to produce even one connection to collusion within the Trump campaign.

In fact, two subsequent investigations have both shown precisely no collusion, after having investigated the same claims.  Further confounding We The People is the reality that Robert Mueller seems to have moved well off the rails of the original scope of this investigation, having declared nothing but trumped up process charges for a number of loose connections to the President.  In fact, Mueller hasn’t even been getting much of a warm reception in the courtroom either, with one judge recently demanding that Michael Flynn appear in court, in person, within days lest Mueller wish to let him walk.

Both sides in the special counsel’s case against former national security adviser Michael Flynn are staying tight-lipped after a judge demanded information about why Flynn’s sentencing is once again being delayed.

In a joint Monday court filing, Mueller and Flynn’s lawyers only replied that they are not “ready for sentencing.”

But responding to that filing, U.S. District Court Judge Emmet Sullivan late Monday ordered a July 10 hearing over the delays.

This reeks of desperation, as if Mueller just needs more time to make him crack.
C’mon, Bobby, I know you spent some time over at the FBI, and we have just figured out that those boys are about as useless as breasts on a boar, but we figured that you would at least hide it better.
For instance, with reports surfacing today that your only other “get”, Paul Manafort, is spending his time in solitary confinement, one could certainly get the impression that you’re attempting to sweat him for info or some sort of false confession.
The attorney for Paul Manafort on Thursday appealed for his client’s release from “solitary confinement” so he could prepare for his defense in two complex trials.

The motion to release states that Manafort — a former chairman of Donald Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign — is locked in his cell “24 hours a day,” except for when he meets with his legal team whose offices are two hours away from the facility where Manafort is being held.

Manafort’s location is unclear. Some reports indicate Northern Neck Regional Jail in Virginia.

Tests Show QAnon Shaman is ‘Mentally Ill’, According to His Own Lawyer

But is this all just a part of a broader legal strategy?

From the moment that Jacob Chansley set foot on our television screens, we knew that we’d be talking about him for some time into the future. Chansley, known more commonly as the “QAnon Shaman”, was the iconic character who participated in the January 6th insurrection shirtless, with his face painted, and wearing a large fur headdress adorned with bison horns. Now, as Chansley faces charges in the storming of the Capitol, his lawyers are trying a rather tricky defense:  They’re claiming that the Shaman doesn’t possess full control over his faculties.  In an interview, defense lawyer Albert Watkins said that officials at the federal Bureau of Prisons, or BOP, have diagnosed his client Jacob Chansley with transient schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, depression and anxiety. The BOP’s findings, which have not yet been made public, suggest Chansley’s mental condition deteriorated due to the stress of being held in solitary confinement at a jail in Alexandria, Virginia, Watkins said. “As he spent more time in solitary confinement … the decline in his acuity was noticeable, even to an untrained eye,” Watkins said in an interview on Thursday. But is this all just legal maneuvering? Watkins said authorities will need to determine how Chansley can get access to the treatment he needs to “actively participate in his own defense.” Pleading guilty to a charge negates the need for a trial, but defendants still have to be declared mentally competent to do so. Watkins said the BOP’s evaluation of his client did not declare Chansley to be mentally incompetent, and he does not expect Chansley to be ordered to undergo what is known as competency restoration treatment. Watkins turned heads early on in his role at attorney for the Shaman, after making derogatory remarks about his own client’s mental health, using phrases that are deemed unprintable…

Former White House Doc Says Biden’s Mental Health Will Force Him Out of Office

And he did not mince his words.

As soon as Joe Biden found himself on the path to the presidency, the murmurs about his mental health began. Biden has always been a gaffe-machine, providing our nation with a ridiculous number of bizarre and unfortunate statements throughout the years.  But, in 2021, it appears that Biden’s issues are no longer funny or jovial, with many suggesting that his mental health is in a serious decline. This includes a former White House physician, who painted a terrifying picture of where all of this could be headed.  Representative Ronny Jackson (R-TX), formerly the White House physician, said Thursday on Fox News Channel’s “Hannity” that he believes President Joe Biden will be forced to resign or be removed with the 25th Amendment. And Jackson didn’t pull any punches. “I’ve been saying that it’s only going to get worse, and guess what? We’re watching that happen right before our eyes right now. And I’m at the point right now where, you know, I went from, you know, telling people, we should be concerned about what might potentially be going on, to now saying, hey, what is happening right now?” Jackson added, “Where are the people in our academic medicine that were out there calling for President Trump to have a cognitive test? Where are these people? There’s something seriously going on with this man right now. And you know, I think that he’s either gonna, he’s either gonna resign, they’re going to convince him to resign from office at some point in the near future for medical issues, or they’re going to have to use the 25th Amendment to get rid of this man right now. There’s some serious stuff going on right now.” Jackson’s underestimation of political biases aside, he’s certainly not the only one wondering just how fit Biden’s mental…
