Politico Purports That POTUS Has Been Subpoenaed!

Has Mueller’s metaphorical “stealth mode” helped him secure his most daring maneuver so far?

Published

Robert Mueller

Thanks to the timing of the midterm elections, Special Counsel Robert Mueller has been even more shadow-y than usual in recent weeks, but that all could be turned on its head at a moment’s notice.

This spacious silence was no accident either, as the Justice Department tends to have a longstanding agreement to maintain the appearance of political neutrality when it comes to our electoral maneuvers.   This alleged impartiality may only exist in the realm of etiquette, however, as Mueller himself has been seemingly swamped with work during his time away from the spotlight.

Now, a series of events has led at least one Politico reporter to believe that Mueller has even gone so far as to subpoena the Commander in Chief himself.

The evidence lies in obscure docket entries at the clerk’s office for the D.C. Circuit. Thanks to Politico’s Josh Gerstein and Darren Samuelsohn, we know that on August 16th (the day after Giuliani said he was almost finished with his memorandum, remember), a sealed grand jury case was initiated in the D.C. federal district court before Chief Judge Beryl A. Howell. We know that on September 19, Chief Judge Howell issued a ruling and 5 days later one of the parties appealed to the D.C. Circuit. And thanks to Politico’s reporting, we know that the special counsel’s office is involved (because the reporter overheard a conversation in the clerk’s office). We can further deduce that the special counsel prevailed in the district court below, and that the presumptive grand jury witness has frantically appealed that order and sought special treatment from the judges of the D.C. Circuit—often referred to as the “second-most important court in the land.”

Nothing about the docket sheets, however, discloses the identity of the witness. Politico asked many of the known attorneys for Mueller witnesses—including Jay Sekulow, another Trump lawyer—and every one denied knowledge of the identity of the witness. (What, of course, would we expect a lawyer to say when asked about a proceeding the court has ordered sealed?)

Now for the juicy stuff:

The docket sheets give one final—but compelling—clue. When the witness lost the first time in the circuit court (before the quick round-trip to the district court), he unusually petitioned for rehearing en banc—meaning he thought his case was so important that it merited the very unusual action of convening all 10 of the D.C. Circuit judges to review the order. That is itself telling (this witness believes his case demands very special handling), but the order disposing of the petition is even more telling: President Trump’s sole appointee to that court, Gregory Katsas, recused himself.

Is Mueller springing a trap for the President for an upcoming moment, not far removed from the sacred midterms themselves?  Only time will tell.

GOP Rep. Blows the Doors Off Russia Probe, Says HAIR-RAISING Info Is About to Drop [Watch]

HERE WE GO…

GOP Rep. Mark Meadows dropped a bomb Friday night on Fox News’ “Hannity.” No need to beat around the bush. Let’s get right down to it… From Daily Wire: Rep. Mark Meadows (R-NC) told Fox News on Thursday night that the reason that Democrats are reacting with anger over President Donald Trump’s decision to declassify information from the Russia investigation is that they know what explosive information is about to come out that will make many of them look bad. Meadows noted, “I can tell you, there’s information coming that will curl your hair. I can tell you that the reason why it’s so visceral — the response from the Democrats is so visceral right now is because they know — they’ve seen documents. Adam Schiff has seen documents that he knows will actually put the finger pointing back at him and his Democrat colleagues, not the President of the United States. And so that’s why you’re seeing it.” WATCH: https://twitter.com/RealSaavedra/status/1132053108559769601?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1132053108559769601&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2F47666%2Fmeadows-declassifying-russia-investigation-info-ryan-saavedra Soon enough, the entire world will know the origins of “spying” on the 2016 Trump campaign. Also, how the whole Russia conspiracy fiasco became a thing. Trump tweeted out the following… “Today, at the request and recommendation of the Attorney General of the United States, President Donald J. Trump directed the intelligence community to quickly and fully cooperate with the Attorney General’s investigation into surveillance activities…. https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/1131716322369392646?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1131716322369392646&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Fhuge-trump-gives-ag-barr-complete-authority-to-declassify-info-on-russia-probe-origins%2F ….during the 2016 Presidential election.

HERE WE GO: Far-Left Dem Rashida Tlaib Is Promoting Movement Designed to Destroy Israel

Isn’t that special!?

If Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (NY) isn’t making headline news, it’s fellow freshman Democrat Ilhan Omar (MN). If it’s not Omar, it’s Michigan’s Rashida Tlaib (MI). Today belongs to the woman who draped herself in the Palestinian flag after winning her election last November. In case you live under a rock, Tlaib has made it abundantly clear that isn’t the biggest fan of Israel. From Daily Wire: Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) promoted the anti-Semitic Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) movement on Thursday which is designed to destroy Israel. Tlaib retweeted a tweet from a far-left Democrat activist that goes by the name “Rasha” on Twitter. https://twitter.com/RealSaavedra/status/1132062158911549441?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1132062158911549441&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2F47669%2Fdemocrat-rashida-tlaib-promotes-anti-semitic-ryan-saavedra The tweet featured a video of NYU commencement speaker Steven William Thrasher who promoted the anti-Semitic movement at the school’s graduation this month. Thrasher noted, “I am so proud, so proud, of NYU’s chapters of Students for Justice in Palestine and Jewish Voices for Peace, for supporting the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions movement against the apartheid state government in Israel.” You know how Americans hijacked multiple planes on September 11, 2001 before crashing them into large buildings and murdering upwards of 3,000 people? That’s because Americans were not behind the attack that forever changed the world. Tlaib, known for lodging her foot directly between her lips, says she was “really afraid” of her “fellow Americans” after 9/11. You can’t make this up. From The Blaze: Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.) says that she was “afraid” of Americans in the days following the attacks on Sept. 11, 2001. Tlaib: “I was probably my second year in law school when 9/11 happened. And I was — I was really terrified of what was going to happen to my husband, who’s only a green card holder at the time.” She added, “I immediately called my brothers and told them to…
