After two years of investigations by a highly politicized FBI and a Special Counsel stacked with Clinton supporters, Robert Mueller’s “witch hunt” appears to have hit a snag. Three separate judges have now demanded evidence and facts in an “unredacted format” or Mueller runs the risk having the case tossed out altogether.
Mueller’s investigation has hit a brick wall. Without any evidence, judges don’t see how it can proceed. As Zerohedge reported, the nation has been on the edge of insanity waiting for that much-promised and long-awaited link tying President Trump to Vladimir Putin, only to find out that there is no link, and the deck appears to have been heavily stacked against Donald Trump by bad actors operating at the highest levels of the FBI, DOJ, Obama admin, and Clinton camp. It looks like the real Russian conspiracy in the 2016 election was the participation of high-level Kremlin sources used in the anti-Trump dossier that Hillary Clinton paid for – not to mention the Uranium One scandal that’s being covered up by the “bad actors” and the mainstream media for Hillary.
The first major setback to the investigation into “Russian collusion” during the 2016 election happened in February when the federal judge (Judge Emmet G. Sullivan) assigned to the criminal case against Trump’s former National Security advisor Michael Flynn, demanded Mueller’s team to turn over any “exculpatory evidence” to Flynn’s defense.
According to Zerohedge, Flynn’s legal team never actually made this request, strangely enough. Instead, Judge Emmet G. Sullivan issued the order “sua sponte,” or at his discretion, invoking the “Brady Rule.” That rule requires prosecutors to turn over previously unfiled evidence that might have a material impact on a defendant’s case. Two days before Sullivan’s order, Mueller filed a motion for a protective order regarding the use of evidence in the case, including “sensitive materials,” which would be provided to Flynn’s lawyers by the office of the Special Counsel.
The implication was that Flynn had entered a guilty plea for reasons other than “guilt.” We also know that the FBI agents who interviewed Flynn (one of whom was anti-Trump counterintelligence agent Peter Strzok) did not think Flynn was lying to them – something James Comey was recently caught lying about himself.
Fox New‘s Judge Andrew Napolitano thought Sullivan’s decision at the time was a complete bombshell.
“Why would he we want that after General Flynn has already pleaded guilty? That is unheard of. He must suspect a defect in the guilty plea. Meaning, he must have reason to believe that General Flynn pleaded guilty for some reason other than guilt.” –Andrew Napolitano
Speculation is now swirling that Flynn pleaded guilty because unless one is extremely wealthy, federal investigations have a way of bankrupting anyone else. “Your investigation and others into the allegations of Trump campaign collusion with Russia are costing my family a great deal of money — more than $125,000 — and making a visceral impact on my children.”
Then there’s the judge in the [Paul] Manafort Case, who excoriated a Special Counsel attorney on Friday during a “motion to dismiss” hearing. A leaked transcript of the heated exchange between attorney Michael Dreeben and Eastern District of Virginia Judge T.S. Ellis reveals that the entire Manafort case is in jeopardy if the Special Counsel doesn’t produce an unredacted copy of the original order from Deputy AG Rod Rosenstein authorizing the original investigation. –Zerohedge
And what could be the final nail in the investigation’s coffin, was last week’s ruling by federal Judge Dabney Friedrich, a Trump appointee, denying Mueller a trial delay over the high-profile February indictment of 13 Russians for interfering in the 2016 US election. Mueller accused 13 Russian nationals and three Russian entities (one of which was Concord Management and Consulting) of “knowingly and intentionally” conspiring to interfere with the election by using social media to disparage Hillary Clinton and support Donald Trump. But Mueller didn’t expect Concord Management and Consulting to fight back.
I don’t think anyone (including Mueller) anticipated that any of the defendants would appear in court to defend against the charges. Rather, the Mueller prosecutors seem to have obtained the indictment to serve a public relations purpose, laying out the case for interference as understood by the government and lending a veneer of respectability to the Mueller Switch Project.
One of the Russian corporate defendants nevertheless hired counsel to contest the charges. In April two Washington-area attorneys — Eric Dubelier and Kate Seikaly of the Reed Smith firm — filed appearances in court on behalf of Concord Management and Consulting. Josh Gerstein covered that turn of events for Politicohere. –Powerline Blog
Mueller was just denied the opportunity to kick the can down the road, and will likely be forced to produce the requested evidence or withdraw the indictment, potentially jeopardizing the PR aspect of the entire “Trump collusion” probe.
Evidence continues to mount that this probe was nothing more than a public relations (propaganda) campaign from the very beginning. Most of us could see through it, though.
What bothers me more than anything is the fact that there does not seem to be outrage over this. Trump may be a great president or he may be nothing more than more of the same. Time will tell. Where is the outrage on this. People in the Justice Department and FBI tried to steal an election.
They should be going to jail.
It just shows how far this country has declined. WE all know how little influence we have even by voting. In this case it appears at least that people in our government do not like how the vote turned out.
And no one seems to care.
Mike in VA,
But I’m just a man
on a little island in Hawaii.
Not much I can do.
Rellik, how are you doing with that volcano acting up over there?
I’m an hour and a half away.
Earthquakes are more of a concern.
Rellik, glad to hear that. Hang in there.
If you object, then the democratic machine destroys you.
There is a reason behind the term “silent majority.” People know that if you speak out nowadays you will be crucified, vilified, and have your character destroyed.
That is part of the democrat game plan. “you better shut the fuck up or we will get you.
JS, I know what you say is true but they’ll have a war on their hands if they try that shit with me.
I can’t remain silent. I’m ready to face my God. Are you? Are they?
Mike in VA, welcome back and like I always say, nothing this govt. does has any legitimate basis to it whatsoever.
HIllary could have been beaten by a potato.
They tried to steal it as hard as they could and STILL failed. What does that tell you?
TheGuy, agreed. Hillary was a bag of shit the DNC thought they could make look nice but it just wasn’t meant to be. They had much better luck with Obamanation back in 2008 and 2012, even knowing what he turned out to be. People remembered what the Clintons were like back in the 90s so that was another factor working against the libturds.
Don’t forget the dems who screwed over Bernie Sanders and the media who helped to push this false naritive. they all colluded together with the Justice dept and FBI. Heads should roll!
Evidence and Facts.
When will the masses really wake up and understand TPTB AND the Democrats could give a Rats Ass about Evidence and Facts. They HATE Trump, period.
Tis all about power and control. Sort of like “watch the donkey show over there while we screw you with everything else going on”.
It is interesting to watch. This is really a government coup d’état in progress. The democrats are hell bent on nullifying an election.
This truly shows how weak our county is and should scare the shit out of everybody.
Can democracy so easily be overthrown?
Since when does the government need evidence and facts to prosecute someone?
I’m so sick of this crap. Hang the bunch of them. Don’t leave out any of the Hillary or Obama camp. Start at the top of both those two and let them all swing in the breeze. That damned Sessions needs to go and/or join the rope garland gang. Trump needs to use his executive rights as President and just shut the whole thing down. Now. Fire the entire top echelon of the FBI, Justice Dept. and replace with solely well-vetted conservatives. Eliminate all Democrats from any office held in any dept. of the executive branch. And that all ought to be the minimum of things to just start with.
Heartless, AMEN to your post.
The entire so called Trump “case” is complete garbage, nonsense, b.s.
Put Mueller in jail and make him pay back everything he used to do this BS. Hang him HIGH! Time to put the uranium One deliverer Mueller in front of the shooting squad.
Mueller was FBI Director at the time of 9/11 so he was in charge of the cover-up and destroying what would’ve been the biggest crime scene in the history of the world. Always been a sack of shit and always will be.
Muller was a Republican during 9/11 and is a Republican as of now. Both parties out to destroy us. Sad.
I’m am a moderate independent voter. Didn’t vote for Trump or Hillary. I cannot believe that 40% of American voters still blindly support Trump, no matter what he says or does. He is the sleaziest, biggest liar , most immoral person ever elected president. The sooner all the facts are in and Trumps in jail,
the better off our country will be.
Trump’s a saint compared to Bill Clinton, or did you sleep through the 90s?
You didn’t read this article, Chuck? Talk about blind. Trump is doing what he promised during the election,and what his voters wanted. How refreshing.
Chuck, just imagine what things would’ve been like had Hillary won. I’ll just leave it there.
Mueller has no evidence OR facts!
That’s why he DEFIED the Constitution and broke the LAW when he seized LEGALLY PRIVILEGED DOCUMENTS belonging to Mr. Cohen!
Who’s he fooling? You can’t hide behind a title to excuse your lawbreaking.
Shame on you, Mr. Mueller. History will not be kind to you.
UNLESS you admit to the error of your ways, and admit you have nothing.

Mueller is simply acting on orders from the Deep State. The implementation of a communist government is the ultimate goal of the Deep State and the Obummunists and Hillarists are behind it.
