Over the last 24-hours, the Establishment Media has repeated over and over again how the U.S. District Attorney who oversaw the raid on longtime Trump Attorney Michael Cohen’s New York offices was a Trump appointee – implying there must have been some serious wrongdoing for the raid to then have taken place.
Ah, there’s one problem though. U.S. Attorney Geoffrey Berman was NOT part of the raid. He was forced to recuse himself from the case by Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein.
Via ABC News:
“ABC News has learned that Geoffrey Berman, the U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York, is recused from the Michael Cohen investigation.Two sources familiar with the matter tell ABC News Berman was not involved in the decision to raid Cohen’s office because of the recusal.
The recusal was approved by Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein.“
The raid was a Deep State-directed abuse of government authority that would have made Stalin blush. What few Trump loyalists there are in the federal government are being pushed aside to allow the Deep State to further isolate the President.
