Can’t wait to see what 6-fingered young-earth-creationist they come up with for the “real” AG

The Mueller plot continues to thicken.

Quote

Dick Cheney’s former top national-security aide has come under scrutiny from special counsel Robert Mueller, two people with knowledge of the probe tell The Daily Beast. It’s the latest sign that Mueller’s probe has expanded beyond the narrow bounds of Russian interference in American politics.

Mueller’s team has been looking into the communications and political dealings of John Hannah, the former Cheney adviser who later worked on Trump’s State Department transition team. This includes interactions with Lebanese-American businessman and fixer George Nader, who brokered meetings between foreign dignitaries and Team Trump, and Joel Zamel, a self-proclaimed social-media guru with deep ties to Israeli intelligence. The Daily Beast previously reported that the three men met with a top Saudi general in the days leading up to Trump’s inauguration to discuss plans to undermine and overthrow the government of Iran.

It sounds like there's some serious shit brewing including a lot of secret indictments.

Former Department of Justice public corruption prosecutor Paul Butler explained how special counsel Robert Mueller may have anticipated the appointment of acting Attorney General Matt Whitaker during a Saturday appearance on MSNBC’s “AM Joy.”

Butler, currently a professor at Georgetown Law and MSNBC legal analyst, suggested that the latest news about the special counsel shows he is targeting notorious GOP dirty trickster Roger Stone — and the president’s eldest son.

“As far as we know, this is all about Roger Stone and Donald Trump, Jr. — all of these other people who have been called to the grand jury are about getting Stone and about getting Trump, Jr.,” he suggested.

“The court where Mueller has brought most of his prosecutions is the federal court in D.C. — there are 36 sealed indictments pending right now in that federal court,” he revealed. “They may be from Mueller’s team, they may not be, they’re secret so we don’t know.”

“We know 18 sealed indictments have been filed since August,” he continued. “August is the time that the Mueller team went on radio silence because of the upcoming midterm elections.”

“It could be — everybody knew that after the midterm elections Attorney General [Jeff] Sessions was on the way out, Trump would be able to install his own inside man, as he’s done with Matt Whitaker,” he noted. “Mueller — crafty prosecutor — he may have anticipated this and filed all of these sealed indictments in this event, in the event Trump would install an attorney general who would impede the investigation.”


It is possible that even Trump has already been indicted.

Special counsel Robert Mueller may have already subpoenaed President Donald Trump to compel testimony about collusion with Russia and obstruction of justice, a top legal expert explained on MSNBC on Saturday.

Nelson Cunningham served as general counsel of the Senate Judiciary Committee and as a federal prosecutor in the Southern District of New York.

“There is some sealed litigation in the D.C. courts, that’s bounced back from the district court to the court of appeals, back to district court, back to the court of appeals — in rapid-fire fashion,” Cunningham explained.

“The action was filed on Aug. 16,” he noted. “If you’ll remember, Rudy Giuliani said on Aug. 15 ‘We’re almost done with our opposition to a subpoena motion.’ The very next day, this mystery litigation began.”

“Only one judge has recused himself — from what we can tell from the public records — from consideration of the case, and that’s the one judge that Donald Trump appointed to this court,” he continued.

“You put the pieces together and it could well be the president, who is litigating with Robert Mueller, over a piece of secret litigation, perhaps a subpoena that Mueller has given to Trump and which is lawyers are fighting,” he concluded.

“It certainty would be a good way for him to use the period the before the midterms to make significant progress on the case,” he added.
