American Thinker is out today with a must-read for those increasingly frustrated by the anti-Trump fake Russia meme that has dominated the Establishment Media news cycle for the last 18 months. Russian collusion remains a hoax perpetrated largely by Deep State interests and carried out by its media cohorts. It’s two primary goals are to debilitate the Trump presidency while also protecting the Obama and Clinton machines from legal trouble.
The two big stories this week are interrelated: the utter collapse of the Russian Collusion Fantasy and the conclusion of the Manafort case, a case of selective and apparently not very persuasive prosecution which flows from that fantasy.
…Richard Wesley, a lawyer on Manafort’s team, called the government’s bank fraud evidence against his client ‘selective.’
‘Clearly the goal was to… stack up the counts,’ said Wesley. ‘And to give you a sense that the evidence is so overwhelming to draw one conclusion.’
‘There is not a single bit of evidence that any of these banks came to the government and complained about these frauds,’ added Wesley.
He said none of the banks seemed concerned ‘until the special counsel showed up and starting asking questions.’
Throughout the trial, Manafort’s attorneys have suggested Gates was responsible for falsifying bank and tax records — even implying he forged Manafort’s signatures on foreign bank records. They claimed he did this to cover up for millions of dollars he embezzled from Manafort’s businesses.
In testimony last week Gates said he committed tax and bank fraud crimes under orders from Manafort — but also admitted to embezzling hundreds of thousands of dollars from his former boss while carrying at least one extramarital affair.
Downing told the jury that Gates was a ‘liar’ who ‘tried to get one over on you.’
‘How [Gates] was able to get the deal he got [with Mueller’s team] I have no idea,’ said Downing. ‘He gets to walk out of here on probation… because [prosecutors] were so desperate to try to make the case.’
…As the selective prosecution of Paul Manafort draws to a conclusion, the villains of the Russian collusion fairy tale that was the impetus for the appointment of a Special Counsel who brought this case, are being further unmasked.
Reputable accounts reveal that former associate deputy attorney general Bruce Ohr and his wife Nellie (an undisclosed employee of GPS Fusion) continued to receive reports from Christopher Steele, author of the now discredited dossier. They did so after Steele was terminated as an FBI source because of Steele’s leaks to the press and lying to the agency about them. Ohr and his DOJ and FBI cohorts in this stove-piping operation apparently “operated outside the chain of command, misled their bosses (and the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court) and concealed evidence from Congressional oversight committees.” And they did this work even after Trump was elected and inaugurated.
The evidence to date suggests that Rod Rosenstein, who is tasked with supervising Robert Mueller and his team, was kept in the dark about Ohr’s continued work with Steele when he signed the last FISA warrant application, post inauguration, in June 2017. The Ohr-Steele exchanges which have made it to public view suggest that Ohr’s boss, now fired but then Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates, most likely received the stove-piped reports, okayed this channel of information gathering, and even oversaw it.
The Deep State attacks against Donald Trump over the last two years rightly rank among the most insidious and far-reaching scandals in U.S. political history. Even as those attacks are being exposed as hoaxes, the Deep State continues to push them, increasingly desperate to see Robert Mueller find something, anything, in which to damage/destroy the president. It is a conflict of Biblical proportion pitting the will of the people in the form of a new president against the dark pit of D.C. corruption. Which side ultimately wins this conflict remains to be seen.
