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.

Roger Stone Receives Sentence Of 40 Months; Possibility Of Retrial Or Pardon Looms

Published

on

Judge Amy Berman Jackson has sentenced Roger Stone to 40 Months in prison on Thursday after the Department of Justice recommended a sentence of nearly ten years before Attorney General William Barr intervened and walked the suggestion back. However, there are still a few opportunities available for Stone to avoid spending a whole lot of this sentence in prison. Stone already put in a request for a retrial, which is currently pending, but there’s also the possibility that Trump could pardon him too. Check out more on this from The Washington Examiner: Stone’s lawyers filed a motion for a retrial last week following revelations that the jury forewoman during his trial had a social media history of anti-Trump posts, and the judge hasn’t ruled on that yet. If Stone’s long shot challenge is successful, his sentence would be tossed, and the DOJ would have to try him again. The judge shot down a similar previous request. The DOJ’s D.C. office told the court last Monday it recommended Stone receive up to nine years behind bars, but Trump tweeted late that night that he “cannot allow this miscarriage of justice!” The DOJ reversed itself Tuesday, and the four line prosecutors on the case withdrew. The DOJ said its decision was made before Barr was aware of Trump’s position, and Trump denied placing pressure on the agency. The department walked back the “unduly high” sentence recommendation, suggesting three to four years instead but leaving it up to the judge. In response, more than a thousand ex-DOJ prosecutors from Republican and Democratic administrations, including Democratic donors, officials named in the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act abuse report, CNN and MSNBC analysts, and a lawyer for Fusion GPS, signed a petition calling on Barr to resign because of the “damage” he’d done to the DOJ’s…

Trump Slams Idea Of Prison Time For Roger Stone While Andrew McCabe Gets Nothing

Published

on

President Trump is not at all happy that Roger Stone is looking at some serious jail time while former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe is getting off the hook scot free, stating that Stone is clearly being treated unfairly by the justice system. Stone is due to be sentenced on Wednesday. Here are the details from The Washington Examiner: “‘They say Roger Stone lied to Congress.’ @CNN OH, I see,” the president tweeted Thursday, “but so did Comey (and he also leaked classified information, for which almost everyone, other than Crooked Hillary Clinton, goes to jail for a long time), and so did Andy McCabe, who also lied to the FBI! FAIRNESS?” https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/1230513001054097415 Trump’s comment follows a dust-up with Attorney General William Barr over Stone’s sentencing. Prosecutors initially recommended a prison sentence of seven to nine years for Stone. But after the president complained about the recommendation on Twitter, the Justice Department announced it would scale back the recommendation, leading the prosecutors on the Stone case to resign. Barr has reportedly considered resigning because of Trump’s tweets directed at the Justice Department. The department determined it would not prosecute former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe for lying and former FBI Director James Comey for mishandling sensitive information. While on the campaign trail, Clinton, the 2016 Democratic presidential nominee, was hit with a scandal over her use of a private email address and server during her time as secretary of state but was never charged with a crime. The president has a point. The fact that Stone is being treated as if he were the scum of the earth and being denied a truly fair trial by having folks who are clearly against him put on the jury deciding his case, while someone like McCabe gets off the hook is a…
