NYT: ACTING ON MUELLER'S CRIMINAL REFERRAL, FBI RAIDS OFFICES OF TRUMP'S PERSONAL LAWYER MICHAEL COHEN

They're really going to do this, aren't they?

Gird your loins. This feels like the beginning of the end, one way or the other.

The F.B.I. on Monday raided the office of President Trump's longtime personal lawyer, Michael D. Cohen, seizing records related to several topics including payments to a pornographic-film actress.

Federal prosecutors in Manhattan obtained the search warrant after receiving a referral from the special counsel, Robert S. Mueller III, according to Mr. Cohen's lawyer, who called the search "completely inappropriate and unnecessary." The search does not appear to be directly related to Mr. Mueller's investigation, but likely resulted from information he had uncovered and gave to prosecutors in New York.


...

The payments to Ms. Clifford are only one of many topics being investigated, according to a person briefed on the search. The F.B.I. also seized emails, tax documents and business records, the person said.

Paying someone to keep her mouth shut is not a crime, or else everyone who pays a blackmailer is himself committing a criminal act. Not saying this woman is a blackmailer, but it's not illegal to pay off a blackmailer.

The only crime I can imagine is being investigated -- pretextually -- is the claim by this porno actress and admitted liar that a thug approached her and recommended she stay silent about Trump, making a vague threat against her and her child.

Is an admitted liar's claim, without any evidence that the thug has anything to do with Michael Cohen, enough for Mueller to generate a criminal referral and for the FBI to secure a warrant? Seems unlikely -- maybe there was evidence of some connection that we're not aware of.

Now, unless there is some real proof that Cohen hired a thug to make a threat, I'm thinking this is a pretext -- like Sally Yates' claim that they had to investigate Michael Flynn because of a possible, hypothetical violation of the dead-letter no-longer-a-law Logan Act -- to grab up other information while allegedly investigating a crime.

I can't declare this is all a set-up, though. It's hard for me to believe that Mueller would make a criminal referral based only on an admitted liar and fame-chaser's vague word, and I can't believe the FBI would dare to seek a warrant based only on that, and I can't believe a judge would issue a warrant based only on that.

But it's not as hard for me to believe as it might have been two years ago.

39 Contreras was obviously dirty, and he is a FISA court judge. Absolutely there are judges crooked enough to authorize something like this without a solid underlying charge.

For Mueller, public perception is crucial. Maybe he can persuade people that stealing the President's legal files is legitimate? Or maybe we really are in the endgame and the masks are entirely gone.

Posted by: CN at April 09, 2018 05:08 PM (5gaNQ)

72 Before asking for a warrant and raiding Cohen's office, the prosecutor involved was supposed to do the following:

Alternatives to Search Warrants.In order to avoid
impinging on valid attorney-client relationships, prosecutors are
expected to take the least intrusive approach consistent with vigorous
and effective law enforcement when evidence is sought from an attorney
actively engaged in the practice of law. Consideration should be given
to obtaining information from other sources or through the use of a
subpoena, unless such efforts could compromise the criminal
investigation or prosecution, or could result in the obstruction or
destruction of evidence, or would otherwise be ineffective.

NOTE: Prior approval must be obtained from the Assistant
Attorney General for the Criminal Division to issue a subpoena to an
attorney relating to the representation of a client. SeeUSAM 9-13.410.
Authorization by United States Attorney or Assistant Attorney General.No
application for such a search warrant may be made to a court without
the express approval of the United States Attorney or pertinent
Assistant Attorney General. Ordinarily, authorization of an application
for such a search warrant is appropriate when there is a strong need for
the information or material and less intrusive means have been
considered and rejected.Prior Consultation.In addition to obtaining
approval from the United States Attorney or the pertinent Assistant
Attorney General, and before seeking judicial authorization for the
search warrant, the federal prosecutor must consult with the Criminal
Division.
NOTE: Attorneys are encouraged to consult with the Criminal
Division as early as possible regarding a possible search of an
attorney's office. Telephone No. (202) 305-4023; Fax No. (202) 305-0562.


To facilitate the consultation, the prosecutor should submit the attached form (seeCriminal Resource Manual at 265)
containing relevant information about the proposed search along with a
draft copy of the proposed search warrant, affidavit in support thereof,
and any special instructions to the searching agents regarding search
procedures and procedures to be followed to ensure that the prosecution
team is not "tainted" by any privileged material inadvertently seized
during the search. This information should be submitted to the Criminal
Division through the Office of Enforcement Operations. This procedure
does not preclude any United States Attorney or Assistant Attorney
General from discussing the matter personally with the Assistant
Attorney General of the Criminal Division.

Our courts are broken. The rule of law does not exist. Rules don't either. There is a caste system in place based on race/religion/sex/politics.

On my personal case, my ex is 3 years late on discovery, and had multiple extensions and purposely missed gave the finger to all of them (like 6 so the following would not happen) and the judge is allowing the ex to give all discovery directly to the judge without me and my lawyer seeing it first or at all. My ex represents herself now.. So I don't even get a chance to authenticate anything or see his supposedly evidence, the judge made a ruling that it can all go to him. So that's breaking due process, rules of evidence, ex parte hearing, the local rules of the courts and Lord knows what else.

Democrats and Republicans in Congress uniting to impeach. He's FBI: do you think he cares if some hypothetical trial will go against him five years down the road? This has worked well since last year, why on earth would he stop?

There is a flaw to the argument, of course, but then if Mueller knew what it was he would never have taken the job. Trump, to his credit, is not going out like a bitch.

Posted by: trev006 at April 09, 2018 05:10 PM (jRA31)

108 conveniently again Mueller gets a raid on Trump's lawyer which reveals all (client privilege) communications between Trump and the lawyer. But we're sure (Sessions keeps telling us) Rosie and Mueller are super swell patriots, so nothing to worry about folks.

Or the OIG report and various investigations are being pried out of Rosenstein's control, and this is their (DS Mob's) countermove to try to put Trump in check. But if Sessions is on top of it all, seems some big moves better happen any day now.

Mueller has nothing.

Something about the OIG report being released in the next several days - at least parts - and needed to keep it off the headlines.

Plus, assuming Mueller is evil but not stupid - as someone else said - Mueller has to be able to say he turned over every rock to find something and there was nothing.

But his "report" just prior to the midterms will be full of innuendo.

200 The DOJ is controlled by Dems, as are courts and much of the FBI. Clearly, Rosentein is a Dem pawn and Mueller will keep digging until he manufactures something.

I don't think it is the beginning of the end, this will go on for many more years. I remember saying when Mueller was first appointed that was what it was to be until Trump was no longer Prez and got a lot of pushback.

The Leftists play for keeps, Trump should fire Mueller and Rosenstein now and Sessions can name less partisan replacements. The longer it goes on the worst it is going to get.

229 "I can't believe the FBI would dare to seek a warrant based only on that.."

I can -- easily. I knew his statement that Trump wasn't a target was BS. There are no consequences for Mueller for anything he says or does. He must understand this by now. He is completely beyond the law or oversight. He is a total Lavrenti Beria. In fact, I'll bet Beria was more careful about how he maneuvered himself through the political mazes of the Soviet Union. Mueller, what does he care? No one has the will to stop him and he knows it.

I will never understand how or why Trump and his legal team responded to Stormy Daniels the way they did. They should have ignored her. Instead they had his lawyer say he paid the woman out of the goodness of his heart, then sued for like $30 million for not complying with her non disclosure agreement, etc.

278 So the deep state and FBI are making very clear that if you (non beltway approved person) dare run for important office, or work for the campaign of an outsider like Trump they will violate the 4th amendment and raid your personal space on some BS warrant.

Well how far is it to them going after *me* for daring to make a modest campaign contribution to Trump? Doesn't seem very far to me and I'm ready to make a sign and stand in a picket line on a general strike until congress goes after these nazi wannabes.

However I'm still not ready to be a one woman general striker. And I suspect nothing will happen unless Trump suggests something similar; just as in the NFL and belated tuning out over them encouraging the players to be disrespectful to the flag and anthem.

I don't really like that, its way too much like Barkys cult of personality. We need the Hannity's , Rush, OANN opinion shows etc to push the idea that honest folks should take some peaceful but load actions against this crap.

Part of these diversionary tactics to invent crimes against Trump is to hide and bury those committed (and easily proven BTW) by Clinton/Obama. It's not only deliberate misappropriation of resources and dereliction of duty, it's a delaying tactic to time out statutes of limitations. Justice delayed is not justice denied; it's a get out of jail free card for corruptocrats.

Of all people, Cohen is not rolling over on Trump. He's been his personal lawyer for years, his only client, and that is going nowhere.

I remember hearing when Manafort was indicted that he would roll on Trump. Now it looks as if Manafort is getting ready to sue Mueller.

Mueller has never had anything because there never was anything. Strzok even admitted that in his texts and he knows because he was part of the team that made the entire Russian collusion crap up. The only way they are getting Trump is on some process crime like perjury over some tangential issue like paying off a hooker. Even if that happened, it wouldn't get Trump taken down.

Trump and Congress want the FBI to get papers out faster than they are doing, but they can RAID houses, and throw people in the clink. Seize papers people might want to conceal.

The only "safe" assumption, is ZERO.

Fire them all. Every last one of 'em, down to the janitors.

Let them re-apply, if they wish. Long as they pass a full worse-than-IRS-audit of every scrap of their lives back to puberty, to ensure that they're not latent Deep State operatives, or so inclined to such.

That'd be Step One of their reinstatement.

Next is to test 'em cold, with no study materials, about U.S. Civics, History, the Constitution, and the Federalist Papers.

Require essays as to our Founding Principles. An essay reflecting their thoughts on the Second Amendment. As well as the Third, Fourth and Fifth Amendments, with a final paper required as to the Seventeenth Amendment.

And at last, they have to face a tribunal of the President of Hillsdale College, Thomas Sowell and Victor Davis Hansen, for a three hour oral review before The Board.

Passing all that, they can go back to work.

Oh, and they have to re-take The Oath.

Every Monday, for the remainder of their careers.

You see how this is working. They are going after anyone associated with Trump, to make them pay.

Why did Sessions appoint a second group of federal prosecutors over the weekend?

Why have all these people been fired from the DOJ and OIG?

Why are people like Loretta Lynch surfacing after months of laying low?

439 Is it time to militia yet?

It is damned sure getting close.

The ENTIRE management of the FBI is as corrupt as Al Capone.

If the rank and file FBI don't step in and arrest their superiors, they are as corrupt as the bosses.

This is looking more and more like a modern version of Athens, Tennessee in 1946. Citizens ran the corrupt government officials out of town then, too.

Except this corruption is the FBI leadership, not county officials.

This is going to get ugly. It can turn 4GW really quick. I would not want to be a spouse or relative of one of these corrupt FBI officials if this continues. If/when it happens, they only have themselves to blame.

And it is all about COVERING UP FOR OBAMA officials and their 2014-2017 crimes spying using the FISA court, fake Hillary investigation of her email destruction, and Mueller cover-up of Uranium One as FBI director.

The crime they want to prosecute hasn't been committed yet.

They want to prosecute for obstruction of justice. And they want to prosecute that by way of impeachment. To get there they have to create a flaming carnage of trump's name, his friends and family whatever it takes to force trump into blowing a gasket and firing Mueller.

This has nothing to DO with law. Its all politics. and the Republicans are in on it as well.

Do you not recall the Alabama senate seat? They are going to impeach trump if they get a fig leaf.

They do not care about riots or war. They are an cornered animals. They see no other option.

He did not quite use the phrase "stand up guys," but he made it sound that it was very careful and intended to protect targets of malicious prosecution.

These search warrants executed on Cohen's office and his home are NOT about Stormy Daniels, but instead are about money laundering.


Since Trump pays Cohen, any action on Trump's behalf by Cohen constitutes 'money laundering.'

If you torture the law sufficiently, that is.

604 The FISA court does not have jurisdiction over domestically-executed search warrants.

The FISA court only has to do with FISA warrants, and FISA warrants are all about wiretaps of phone calls and email messaging involving American residents communicating with foreign-based residents.

The FBI would never need to conduct a physical search on Cohen's office and home to obtain wiretaps of phone calls and email messages. Both of those types of communications automatically get swept into the NSA storage facilities. FISA warrants allow the feds to search those facilities for communications that have already been swept up and stored.

All you have to do to understand how all this works is read James Bamford's The Shadow Factory, available at between $15 and $18 from Amazon.

If you don't have the bucks or you hate Amazon, no problem: just read the comprehensive investigative reports WaPo and others did on the StellarWind program. If you don't trust WaPo becuz you think Bezos sucks heiny, then just read the 2013 Inspector General's report on how the US Intelligence Community hid Stellar Wind and the fact that since early on in GWBush's first term, it's been hoovering up everything.

So - if Mueller doesn't need these searches to nail Cohen or Trump or whoever on phone calls or emails, what DOES he need them for?

IG can't even indict. He can recommend... but that's it.

He can't fire.... he can only point out wrongdoing.

He can't investigate anyone outside his Agency.

He can't subpoena witnesses... he can only ask to interview if they are outside his Agency.

He could find the smoking gun that Hillary ordered a Murder.... and could only recommend that someone else do something....

It does not matter if VP Mike Pence is more conservative than President Trump.

What matters is whether or not Mike Pence --- or any other Republican in office right now who would succeed President Trump --- understands the current situation in America like President Trump does and has the balls and the will to stand up to the Left.

Is Mike Pence willing to stand up every single part of the United States government --- including those in the Republican Party, FBI, DOJ, CIA --- the media, schools, colleges, universities, "celebrities", Hollywood and everyone else under the sun attacking, smearing, lying, throwing hateful vile and vitriol at him and everyone in his family and inner circle? Is Mike Pence willing to take all that AND still push forward with a conservative agenda in the face of seemingly everyone in the country working to take him down?

Does Mike Pence have anything in his history showing he has the will to stand up to the unending and unrelenting vile and hate and lawlessness of the Left?

But you cannot argue that such a public figure has no basic right to attorney-client privilege. This raid is clearly a gross violation of Trump's civil rights, and Mueller should go to prison for this.
