Robert Mueller’s Secret Subpoena Fight will Stay Secret…For Now

It has become fairly obvious that this particular angle of the investigation is the lynchpin of the entire probe.

Robert Mueller

As the nation grows impatient with Special Counsel Robert Mueller, the former FBI chief has continued to work from the shadows of the justice system in an attempt to delegitimize the election of Donald Trump.

Mueller began his investigation in a “spray and pray” sort of manner, interviewing scores of former Trump associates and ex-employees.  Mueller was clearly looking for something, but it has become quite obvious that he was really looking for anything at all that could be used to disparage The Donald.

His successful prosecution of men like Michael Cohen and Paul Manafort appeared to many as distracting sideshows, with no connections to the 2016 election and Russian “collusion” to be found.

Now, in one of Mueller’s most secretive outlets, a judge has maintained the Special Counsel’s right to privacy in the mysterious case.

The Supreme Court announced Tuesday that it will maintain much of the secrecy surrounding a mysterious legal dispute that appears to have pitted an unknown foreign company against special counsel Robert Mueller.

The showdown, which centers on the company’s refusal to comply with an apparent Mueller subpoena, has emerged as one of the most intriguing aspects of the ongoing probe of the Trump campaign’s potential collusion with Russia.

While very little still remains known about this particular case, the judge did release a few intriguing tidbits of information.

One revelation: while prosecutors proposed a $10,000-a-day fine on the firm for failing to comply with the demand for its records, Chief Judge Beryl Howell of the U.S. District Court in Washington opted instead for a sharply increased sanction of $50,000 a day, but put that penalty on hold pending an appeal.

The redacted petition made public Tuesday also makes clear that the company tangled up in the dispute is “wholly-owned by a foreign state.” It’s still not clear what country is involved, though, or what type of business the company does in the U.S.

Whether or not this unusual level of secrecy will ultimately behoove Mueller is uncertain, but it seems fairly obvious that this particular angle of the investigation is the lynchpin of the entire probe.

FDA Pushes Through Emergency Authorization For Hydroxychloroquine As Coronavirus Treatment

Published

on

It finally looks like there is a ray of hope in the fight against the coronavirus as the Food and Drug Administration has issued an emergency authorization this past weekend for the use of hydroxychloroquine as a treatment for the illness that is leaving a swath of devastation wherever it roams. This particular kind of medication is typically used in the treatment of malaria, but when it is paired with azithromycin, has not yet been proven to be effective against the illness in clinical trials, however, there are growing numbers of reports and small studies that indicate it is having a positive impact on those with severe cases. Check out more details from Breitbart: The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) issued a statement on Sunday: The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued an Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) to BARDA to allow hydroxychloroquine sulfate and chloroquine phosphate products donated to the Strategic National Stockpile (SNS) to be distributed and prescribed by doctors to hospitalized teen and adult patients with COVID-19, as appropriate, when a clinical trial is not available or feasible. HHS also noted that it had “accepted 30 million doses of hydroxychloroquine sulfate donated by Sandoz, the Novartis generics and biosimilars division, and one million doses of chloroquine phosphate donated by Bayer Pharmaceuticals, for possible use in treating patients hospitalized with COVID-19 or for use in clinical trials.” One of the biggest concerns about using this medication to treat this illness with hydroxychloroquine is that there may now be a massive increase in demand for the drug which could lead to a shortage in the supply. In order to curtail that problem, the HHS said, “Use of the donated medications is expected to help ease supply pressures for the drug, and the FDA is also working with…

Maryland Becomes Latest State To Issue Stay-At-Home Order In Battle Against Coronavirus

The battle against the coronavirus, an invisible invading force that has ravaged the globe making folks seriously ill and killing those most vulnerable to its effects, continues to rage across the United States and things are getting intense. Many states across the country have opted to put out stay-at-home orders in a bid to prevent the spread of the virus, resulting in many businesses being shut down and other measures that are guaranteed to have a deep economic impact on the local community and the country at large. The latest state to join in on employing these measures is Maryland. Here’s more on this from The Washington Examiner: Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan issued a stay-at-home order on Monday. “We have reached a critical turning point in the fight to stop the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic,” the Republican said during a news conference. “We are no longer asking or suggesting that Marylanders stay at home. We are directing them to do so.” “No Maryland resident should be leaving their home unless it is for an essential job or an essential reason,” Hogan said, adding that buying food and medical reasons are exempt. The state of Maryland seems to be taking the stay-at-home order to a brand new level, seeking to actually use legal action to help enforce it. Individuals who are caught breaking the order could receive a misdemeanor and be subject to a year in prison plus a $5,000 fine. The order goes into full effect Monday evening at 8 P.M. By the end of the day Monday half of the states in America will have one of these orders on the books including California, Alaska, Delaware, Colorado Connecticut, Ohio, Oregon, and many, many others. Some might think the idea of enforcing this kind of order with actual legal…
