CONFESSIONS OF A CONGRESSIONAL STAFFER: Mueller Working With Russian Operatives To Bolster Anti-Trump Investigation?

The following are the insights and opinions of a former senior congressional staffer who is now enjoying what he calls the “…happy uncertainty of a self-imposed semi-retirement.” He spent nearly eleven years working on Capitol Hill, arriving there shortly before Barack Obama became president, and then leaving shortly after Donald Trump succeeded him. His extended family’s ties to prior administrations go back decades – at the highest levels. Now approaching middle-age, (ancient by D.C. staffer standards) and despite all that time in the belly of the “D.C. beast” he still manages to look younger than his years. He’s quick to laugh, slow to anger, and enjoys the occasional (and most often inappropriate) joke while also being an occasional (and always highly valued) D.C. Whispers’ source. His contact list is an impressive who’s-who of D.C. power players (a benefit of his political pedigree of which he readily admits he had nothing to do with) including both active and retired politicians, staffers, and (too many) lobbyists. (He feels most lobbyists are decent people working in what he calls an epically f*cked up system.) He has attended two inauguration balls, four Congressional retreats, (to which he says members of Congress drink – a lot) and seven State of the Union addresses.

He’s also good friends with a since-departed network news/entertainment television talent who has been more than willing of late to spill the goods on any number of subjects and says he might be convinced to share some of those stories here as well.

First and foremost, though, is his deepening concern over what is taking place in the city he used to call home, Washington D.C., and the country he loves – America.

CONFESSION #2:

Plenty knew it was coming, including the Trump White House. Mueller has been slow-playing it for a while. I’m talking about the Russian operatives move – the indictments. They are largely baseless, a big overreach that amounts to allegations of talking down Hillary Clinton and talking up Donald Trump. If that were suddenly illegal almost the entire media complex would have to be indicted, right?

Mueller is trying to paint a grand conspiracy picture here. A list of names will be leaked. Each will come with a prepackaged background story. The media will blast the news far and wide over the weekend: SCANDAL-SCANDAL-SCANDAL – even though nothing has actually been proven to implicate Trump. 

Here’s the deal. It’s been done before. On a smaller scale, but it’s coming from a very old playbook that Mueller has likely read a thousand times over.

Oh, and the Russians are cooperating with Mueller at least to some degree. You never really know with them and I have to think he’s experienced enough to know that.

This “breaking news” drop was coordinated by Mueller with help from these Russian operatives.

Hold on tight. This ride is just starting to climb.


 

DOJ Telling Trump NO On Realeasing FBI Memo

“An extraordinary threat to national security.” That is the message coming from Assistant Attorney General Stephen Boyd to House Republican, Kevin Nunes. Congressman Nunes wants to #realeasethememo he says details egregious abuses of power by the FBI, including it is said, illegal surveillance of the 2016 Trump for President campaign by federal intelligence officials linked to the Obama administration. 

This now-public declaration by AAG Boys mirrors an earlier D.C. Whispers report that detailed the very same claim by then-off-the-record government officials claiming the memo was too explosive and dangerous to be allowed to see the light of day.

D.C. Whispers readers will also recall another report outlining how the Mueller investigation had been sped up following the #releasethememo scandal, and that Mr. Mueller was preparing to make a request to interview the President under oath as a means of deflecting from the outrage the memo might cause and place negative focus back onto the Trump White House. Soon after, Mr. Mueller made his request for that interview  known via leaks to his media collaborators.

As for President Trump, he has so far given tacit support of the memo’s release, though has said little specifically about it. Some in D.C. are speculating the White House is using the memo as leverage against the Mueller investigation. (It is believed Mueller himself might be implicated in what the memo reveals)

Mr. Trump is back to day from a highly successful trip to Davos where he was greeted by world leaders and global elites like a rock star – much to the American media’s chagrin. Once back in the White House, the memo and its potential release, as well as Mueller’s still ongoing investigation, will loom large.

Mueller vs Trump: Trump Says BRING IT

D.C. Whispers has been informing its readers for months that this is ultimately where Robert Mueller wanted to go – a request to interview POTUS Trump. If the President declines he is accused of hiding wrong doing. If he agrees, Mueller attempts to trip him up on an obstruction/perjury charge.

It seems if Mueller’s hope was to shake Mr. Trump’s confidence, though, that isn’t happening as POTUS Trump has taken the interview request and effectively told Mr. Mueller to go for it. Trump maintains he has nothing to hide and for now is willing to say just that under oath.

Above: Mueller, who was put in charge of investigating President Trump, had a long and cozy relationship with former POTUS, Barack Obama. This is particularly interesting given more recent revelations that it was the Obama administration that ultimately oversaw the illegal surveillance conducted by federal authorities against private citizens on the Trump campaign. These revelations led to the now infamous #releasethememo scandal that currently hovers over D.C. and that potentially implicates dozens of top officials within the federal government and both political parties who some believe abused their power in an attempt to place Hillary Clinton into the White House.

Some Trump supporters have urged the President not to speak with Mueller, fearing the interview is a trap. The President has shrugged off these concerns and appears ready and willing to sit down with Mueller man to man and answer any and all questions he might have of him.

It will be a high stakes D.C. showdown not seen for decades.

Increasingly Desperate Mueller Attempts To Corral Trump On Obstruction Charge

Special Counsel Robert Mueller was expected to have done far more damage to the Trump White House by now. After months of wasted time and tens of millions of tax dollars, the increasingly agitated Establishment Media and D.C. elites are wondering and waiting for something to come of it all. Whispers now indicate Mr. Mueller is more focused and determined than ever on trying to orchestrate obstruction charges against the President of the United States and currently fast-tracking his plans to do so.

For Mueller and his cohorts, time is even more of the essence these days given a now-pending investigation into the FBI – and possibly Mueller himself. The obstruction charge has to be hurried if it is to be effectively weaponized by Mr. Trump’s multitude of enemies among the media and political class. Word is Mueller will soon announce a desire to formally interview the President under oath. That will force Mr. Trump into a two-option corner:

He either refuses the interview and is then lambasted by the media as a guilty man hiding behind the powers of President.

Or, he gives the interview and is tripped up on past statements of fact and declared to have perjured himself.

Either option opens the door for Democrats, should they win back the House (a scenario that is becoming less likely for them at the moment) to proceed with articles of impeachment.

Apparently the attempt to proceed with the above scenario is coming soon.

Certainly the Trump White House has been preparing. It will be fascinating to see what a notorious counter-puncher like Donald Trump comes back with. A lesser man would have buckled under the onslaught of repeated attacks by now. Remarkably, Mr. Trump somehow appears to grow stronger.

BREAKING: FBI Covering Up Its #ReleaseTheMemo Tracks While Nation Distracted By #SchumerShutdown

FBI says “oops” that it lost months of email evidence pertaining to Mueller links to false Trump-Russia dossier and likely connection to #ReleaseTheMemo scandal:

(The same type of cover-up utilized during the Obama-era IRS scandal, and the Hillary Clinton private server scandal – more commonly known as destruction of evidence.)

Mueller Team Hoping Trump Denies Requested Interrogation As It Prepares Attack Against POTUS

Whispers now suggest Special Counsel Robert Mueller, who leaked to supportive media sources earlier this week his request to interview President Donald Trump, is hoping that request is denied by the POTUS. The motivation for that desire is simple. After many months and millions of tax payer dollars wasted, Mr. Mueller appears to have very little in which to go after the President. A refusal to be interviewed would then be used by Mueller, the D.C. Establishment, and leftist media figures, to construct new and ongoing allegations of a cover-up and obstruction of justice claims.

It’s a double-edged knife for the Trump White House. Agree to the Mueller interrogation and Mr. Trump faces the possibility of misspeaking, forgetting a date, a meeting, etc., and then having that error used, once again, to bolster claims of obstruction.

Refuse the interrogation and the POTUS will be painted as a guilty man hiding behind the power of the presidency.

Either way, the powers that be hope to bludgeon the Trump White House with the Mueller investigation well into the 2018 Midterms.

Meanwhile, Donald Trump appears even more motivated to fight back by doing something highly unusual in Washington D.C.

His job.

The Ongoing Federal Investigation Into Hillary Clinton & Barack Obama That The Media Continues To Ignore…

Robert Mueller continues to undergo a fake investigation into fake allegations of collusion between the then-Trump campaign and the Russian government. After 18 months no such evidence has come forward to substantiate the claims by the far left. In fact, the only real evidence of collusion appears to be that of the Obama FBI attempting to interfere in the 2016 election.

Ah, but quietly marching alongside the Mueller investigation is an equally far-reaching (and much more legitimate) investigation into how the Obama government handled the Clinton email investigation. It has been this investigation which is now countering the falsehoods of the Trump-Russia narrative and is acting as a truthful counterbalance to the Mueller-led anti-Trump Deep State operation – which is why the Establishment Media has been largely ignoring it.

Via USA TODAY:

WASHINGTON — In early January, news that the Justice Department’s inspector general launched an investigation into the government’s disputed handling of the Hillary Clinton email inquiry was quickly overtaken by the chaotic run-up to President Trump’s inauguration.
Nearly a year later, Inspector General Michael Horowitz’s wide-ranging review of the FBI and Justice’s work in the politically-charged Clinton case now looms as a potential landmine for Russia special counsel Robert Mueller.

…none of this is good for Mueller or his reputation for fairness,” Swecker said. “Who knows what else the IG (inspector general) has.”
Mounting questions about the FBI’s continuing credibility – including Trump’s jab that the bureau’s reputation was in “tatters” – have landed hard at the agency. The FBI was sent reeling in May when Trump abruptly dismissed Comey for his handling of the Russia inquiry.”

Robert Mueller Caught Violating Constituational Rights Of Trump White House

Is it a big deal that Special Counsel Robert Mueller illegally took possession of thousands of Trump transition team emails? YES. In what is a clear example of an investigation run amok, Mr. Mueller oversaw an illegal search and seizure of email documents that is a direct violation of the 4th Amendment of the Constitution. 

How ironic that the most glaring illegal act of this eighteen-month investigation has been committed by the investigation itself.

Read the following excerpt from Axios.com:

What happened: Axios reported yesterday afternoon that officials of Trump’s Presidential Transition Team, his office for the 73 days between the election and the inauguration, discovered that Mueller had obtained huge caches of emails from the General Services Administration, the government agency that hosted the transition’s “ptt.gov” emails.
What’s at stake: We’re told that the fight involves emails from the accounts of 12 officials, including members of the political leadership and foreign-policy team. One of the accounts alone includes 7,000 emails.
Trump officials discovered Mueller had the emails when his prosecutors used them as the basis for questions to witnesses, the sources said.
Why it matters: The transition emails are said to include sensitive exchanges on matters such as potential appointments, gossip about the views of particular senators involved in the confirmation process, speculation about vulnerabilities of Trump nominees, strategizing about press statements, and policy planning on everything from war to taxes.
“Mueller is using the emails to confirm things, and get new leads,” a transition source told me.

———————

In short, Mueller has been unable to find anything to confirm, even remotely, there was any collusion by Team Trump with Russia, or obstruction of justice by the Trump White House, so made an illegal grab of tens of thousands of documents in the hope of finding something, anything, to pin on the Trump White House.

The current violation is enough that even Establishment Republicans are admitting Mueller has gone too far. Of course, Democrats and the Mainstream Media would love for Mueller to be fired in order to then paint Trump in Nixonian colors – regardless of whether or not the firing was fully justified.

Some are even suggesting Mueller is purposely crossing the boundaries of his authority so that he will be fired prior to the 2018 Midterms so that firing can be used as political ammunition against POTUS Trump and the Republicans.

SHUT IT DOWN: Wife Of Demoted FBI Investigator Worked For Anti-Trump Fusion GPS During 2016 Campaign

Will there be any end to this corruption? Last week we learned a top-ranking FBI official who had been on Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s team that was looking into alleged collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia had been let go due to strong evidence of anti-Trump bias. Today we also learn that the wife of this deposed FBI agent was actually working for Fusion GPS, the controversial political dirt firm which originally created the now infamous (and false) anti-Trump dossier – the very dossier that was used by the Obama administration to initiate illegal surveillance of Trump campaign officials!!!

Via Fox News:

Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., the ranking Democrat on the intelligence committee, declined to comment on the original disclosure about Mr. Ohr’s secret meetings, and did not immediately respond to a request for comment about Mrs. Ohr.

Congressman Schiff cited the dossier often as a reason to initiate the Mueller investigation into the Trump campaign over allegations of Russian collusion. Now he doesn’t want to talk about it.

Why Did The Mueller Team Leak The (Misleading)Trump Bank Records Story Today?

It had all the markings of a coordinated Deep State attack. One news agency reporting on a leak via an unnamed source was within the hour followed up by multiple reports of the same story. In this instance it was allegations that Special Prosecutor Robert Mueller had subpoenaed private bank records directly linked to President Trump. It was a stunning headline and one that would indicate the investigation was taking a dramatically different and more aggressive turn aimed directly at a sitting president of the United States.

During today’s White House press briefing the tension in the room was palpable. Reporters were eager to push the story.

White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders pushed back…

It appears at this point an earlier D.C. Whispers report might have hit the mark on what the true motivations for this seemingly orchestrated Mueller leak is:

“…According to a well-placed source, IF the Mueller bank records subpoena was in fact a ruse, or an exaggeration of fact, it would be further evidence of the push to try and get the President to try and fire Mueller, an act which would then be used as fuel for the obstruction charge the investigation is desperate to put together. They are hoping to anger Mr. Trump to the point he does something rash (to protect his family) and then use that act against him.” 

There was indeed a chorus of “fire Mueller now!” coming from a great many Trump supporters today – the very thing Mueller and those who have orchestrated this entire fake investigation likely want the President to attempt as the drumbeats of “obstruction” grow louder.

Keep an eye on this Trump financial records angle coming out of the Mueller investigation. Word is there is (much) more like this to come…

Mueller Investigation Lurches Even More Out Of Control – Subpoenas Trump Bank Records

Earlier this week D.C. Whispers indicated how desperate the Deep State war against POTUS Trump was becoming. (see: HERE )

Proof of that earlier report’s accuracy can be found today with the following headline via the BBC:

Trump-Russia probe: Mueller ‘demands Deutsche Bank data’

The gist of this move from Mueller is this – he has failed to uncover any evidence of collusion. (The collusion story was a hoax all along) So, now he has expanded his investigation into Donald Trump’s private finances.  The Deutsche Bank subpoena will only be the first of many such abuses of power by the Mueller/Deep State investigation. (The subpoena is said to have actually been issued weeks earlier – and then leaked now most likely by the Mueller team.)

Now this next part is very important for readers to understand – this move by Mueller signals a direct attack against Donald Trump personally. Not the campaign, not political affiliates, but Donald Trump and his family.

Now why Deutsche Bank to start this attack off? Remember, it is a German Bank with very close ties to globalist leader, Angela Merkel – the same leader who opened Western Europe up to the floodgates of Muslim immigration. If there is any way Mueller and Merkel (among others) can extract some financial data and twist it to inflict damage on Donald Trump, they will do so. There have already been a myriad of reports over the last year depicting how much Merkel despises President Trump.

These forces are not out to merely destroy Trump the President but also Trump the man. Some allege Merkel would like nothing more than to see the entire family pushed off the world stage once and for all. The Trumps are interlopers, unwelcome invaders of the globalist ruling class – the kind of threat Merkel’s globalist schemes cannot abide.

POTUS Trump is accumulating some remarkable political victories of late. His enemies fear momentum is turning in his favor. They are moving now to put a stop to that momentum and using the Mueller investigation as a blunt-force trauma to do so.

UPDATE: Some are now claiming there was no actual subpoena by Mueller into Mr. Trump’s banking records. That claim has yet to be verified. As of now only Fox News has indicated no formal subpoena request has been made by the Mueller team into POTUS Trump’s finances.  Multiple other media agencies are reporting a subpoena was in fact made. Both Fox News and the other multiple news agencies are relying on unnamed sources for their respective (and contradicting) reports.

UDPATE TWO: According to a well-placed source, IF the Mueller bank records subpoena was in fact a ruse, or an exaggeration of fact, it would be further evidence of the push to try and get the President to try and fire Mueller, an act which would then be used as fuel for the obstruction charge the investigation is desperate to put together. They are hoping to anger Mr. Trump to the point he does something rash (to protect his family) and then use that act against him.

Deep State Increasingly Frustrated Trump Hasn’t Attempted To Fire Mueller – Here’s Why

POTUS Trump was supposed to have fallen into the Deep State’s trap by now. A barrage of (illegal) leaks from security officials throughout the government along with all-too-willing accomplices in the Mainstream Media were intended to drive a normally highly-combative Donald Trump to attempt to fire special prosecutor Robert Mueller and thus set off an all-encompassing push to get the President of the United States charged with obstruction. These charges would have had significant support among a handful of high-ranking Establishment republicans who were in on the scheme from the beginning. So says a source on The Hill:

“Trump was supposed to have made a move against Mueller weeks ago. This would have required him to try and get the Assistant Attorney General to do it. That request would have been refused. Trump would have fired the AAG and put someone else in his place to fire Mueller. That’s where a group in Congress would jump in along with some Deep State operatives to try and trap the President on obstruction – an impeachable offense. The fact is, they fully expected the country to be watching 24/7 coverage of impeachment hearings by now. That hasn’t happened and they’re not happy about it. The Flynn fiasco, the false report, is confirmation of just how desperate they are becoming. After months they’ve got nothing. The President did nothing wrong. We have the former head of the FBI sending out weird little tweets about impending justice. The guy is a crackpot and the world is starting to see that. In fact, the only illegality to come out of this mess is from the former Obama administration. Illegal surveillance, weaponizing the intelligence community against the political opposition, destruction of evidence, media collusion, it goes on and on and on.”

Robert Mueller is running out of time. He needs to come up with something, anything, to damage the President or even many who have supported the investigation will fear a public backlash over what is increasingly apparent has been a political witch-hunt all along. It is at this moment the Deep State will be at its most desperate – and dangerous.

Mueller Investigation Now Using Obama IRS To Go After POTUS Trump

The Obama IRS, notorious for putting its boot heels on the necks of political enemies for then-POTUS Obama is now, under the direction of Special Prosecutor Robert Mueller, doing the same to POTUS Trump.

So says this report via the Daily Beast:

Special counsel Bob Mueller has teamed up with the IRS. According to sources familiar with his investigation into alleged Russian election interference, his probe has enlisted the help of agents from the IRS’ Criminal Investigations unit.

This unit—known as CI—is one of the federal government’s most tight-knit, specialized, and secretive investigative entities. Its 2,500 agents focus exclusively on financial crime, including tax evasion and money laundering. A former colleague of Mueller’s said he always liked working with IRS’ special agents, especially when he was a U.S. Attorney.

…These investigations, which are often extremely complex, can take a lot of time. That means the people involved sometimes have to spend significant amounts of money on legal fees. The Daily Beast previously reported that targets of Mueller’s probe—including Manafort—are facing financial strain because of the probe, and that Manafort recently parted ways with the law firm WilmerHale in part because of his financial troubles.

Robert Mueller is utilizing the power and funding of the federal government to go after the Trump White House. The investigation has so broadened in scope it now involves the IRS that is filled to near capacity with Obama-era administrators. (a turn of events warned about here at D.C. Whispers months earlier)

Reports indicate Manafort is cracking under the financial strain Mueller’s witch hunt is putting on him. That is exactly what Mueller wants for it will make Manafort willing to say almost anything to make a deal.

Whispers indicate that “anything” involves a critical member of the Trump family.

An already ugly and abusive investigation is about to become more so.

Media Offers Up Yet Another Slobbering Nothingburger – THE TRUMP LETTER

BREAKING NEWS! BREAKING NEWS! BREAKING NEWS!

POTUS Trump and top political advisers drafted letters outlining reasons for firing former FBI Director James Comey!

**GASP**

So goes the pathetic news cycle today as the Establishment Media sets up its weekend news report talking points.

A draft-version of a letter by POTUS Trump and top advisers was given/leaked to Independent Counsel Robert Mueller. Team Mueller then quietly confirmed to the media it had received said letter. (See how that works?)

Start up the BREAKING NEWS lower screen scrolls and serious-faced media personalities uttering the phrase “obstruction” over and over again and that’s how it’s done.

Oh – and about that letter? Mueller’s office has had it for more than a month. The “BREAKING NEWS” of today is nothing more than controlled manipulation to try and give the bogus Russia investigation much-needed fresh legs. (Watch for the media to quietly admit Mueller has had said letter for some time in the coming days – but watch close or you’ll likely miss it.)

Makes one just want to crank up some tunes to drown out all the bullsh*t, right?
