Papadopoulos sentencing

In a late Friday submission to the court Special Counsel Robert Mueller has presented a sentencing memo recommending 30 days jail for George Papadopoulos. The basic charge against Papadopoulos was lying about the timing and substance of his meeting with Maltese professor Joseph Misfud.

Ex-Trump aide Michael Flynn's sentencing delayed, once again
By Alex Pappas | Fox News

A hearing to sentence former national security adviser Michael Flynn on charges of lying to the FBI has been delayed yet again – a sign that Flynn could still be cooperating in Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia probe.

“Due to the status of its investigation, the Special Counsel’s Office does not believe that this matter is ready to be scheduled for a sentencing hearing at this time,” reads a court document filed Tuesday by both Mueller and Flynn’s attorney.

Michael Cohen surrenders to FBI, plea deal expected soon
By Kara Scannell, Shimon Prokupecz, Laura Jarrett and Erica Orden, CNN

(CNN) Michael Cohen, President Donald Trump's former personal attorney, has surrendered to the FBI ahead of a 4 p.m. court proceeding, where the government is expected to disclose a plea deal, according to a law enforcement source.
As part of the deal, Cohen is expected to plead guilty to multiple counts of campaign finance violations, tax fraud and bank fraud, according to three sources. The deal would include jail time and a substantial monetary fine.
Among the sticking points in the talks, the two sides were negotiating over jail time, according to one source. Cohen is pressing for three years but prosecutors are seeking 50 months.

Cohen has been concerned about asset forfeiture, leaving his family with nothing. Prosecutors made clear that there was a bigger risk should he go to trial and be found guilty that he would have to forfeit assets.

Plea Deal
Reports are the the so Campaign contribution stuff is NOT actually a crime

eg
Quote:
Count Eight transaction surrounds a payment to Stephanie Clifford (Stormy Daniels) of $130,000 for a nuisance claim. Who says it is a campaign contribution? The SDNY does, no-one else. Not even the FEC considers this a campaign contribution.

Count eight is a political charge/plea specifically included for the purpose of pulling Donald Trump into the SDNY Cohen case. There is no FEC violation here. *Note it is not the Federal Election Commission making the claim, only the SDNY prosecutors.

U.S. judge allows Mueller case against Russian company to proceed

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - A U.S. judge on Monday backed Special Counsel Robert Mueller in the federal Russia investigation, allowing a case to proceed against a Russian company accused of helping fund a propaganda operation to sway the 2016 presidential election in Donald Trump’s favor.

Judge Dabney Friedrich, in an opinion filed in the U.S. District court for the District of Columbia, rejected an argument by the company, Concord Management and Consulting LLC, that Mueller was unlawfully appointed and lacked prosecutorial authority.

“By investigating and prosecuting Concord, the Special Counsel did not exceed his authority,” Friedrich wrote in her opinion.

Seen online... H/T "youme"

Lawyers for indicted Russian firm Concord Management and Consulting LLC have joined in Roger Stone associate Andrew Miller’s contempt order appeal

Miller refused to submit to a Mueller grand jury subpoena and he was held in contempt after a SECRET court hearing

Both Miller and Concord Management are challenging Mueller’s appointment

Concord Management points out in their motion conflicting opinions by two different judges

The challenge to Mueller is now in the big boy’s court…

https://www.courthousenews.com/wp-conte ... motion.pdf

Concord Management argument before Judge Friedrich

Seems the Special Counsel has admitted he has unchecked authority and the final say

Friedrich pressed prosecutor Dreeban to explain what, if any, Justice Department regulations exist that serve as a check on Mueller’s authority.

“What kind of standard is it for Mr. Mueller or anyone else,” Friedrich asked.

Dreeban did not specify the precise regulations or policies at issue, but assured the court that the special counsel follows them and regularly consults with Rosenstein on major prosecutorial developments.

But Friedrich appeared skeptical at times that sufficient power exists to check the authority of Mueller, who can only be removed for good cause. She questioned whether Rosenstein could intervene if he disagreed with a prosecutorial decision made by Mueller, and if he could take action in the event of a minor disagreement.

In the latter case, Friedrich asked who makes the call.

“Under the regulation, as drafted, it seems like the special counsel does,” Friedrich said.

Major Potential Setback for Mueller’s Trump-Russia Report
By Staff Writer | August 27, 2018 | 1:50 PM EDT

A court case–completely unrelated to the Trump-Russia investigation–could “torpedo” Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report, according to Politico.

Next month, a Washington D.C. appeals court is set to hear arguments involving a decades-old, unsolved case of missing Columbia University professor, Jesus Galindez. If the court sides with the Department of Justice and finds that judges do not have the ability to release secret grand jury information, it may prevent Mueller from publishing his report on President Trump and his campaign’s alleged ties to Russia.

The ruling could also keep the special counsel from sending its report to Congress.

Whistleblower Exposes Key Player in FBI Russia Probe: “It was all a Set-up”
By Sara Carter | August 27, 2018 | 6:16 PM EDT

    Former DOD employee uncovered a long history of questionable behavior by FBI informant
    Key player in Russia probe appears to have significant ties to Russian government


dam Lovinger, a former Defense Department analyst, never expected that what he stumbled on during his final months at the Pentagon would expose an integral player in the FBI’s handling of President Donald Trump’s campaign and alleged Russia collusion.

Lovinger, a whistleblower, is now battling to save his career. The Pentagon suspended his top-secret security clearance May 1, 2017, when he exposed through an internal review that Stefan Halper, who was then an emeritus Cambridge professor, had received roughly $1 million in tax-payer funded money to write Defense Department foreign policy reports, his attorney Sean Bigley said. Before Lovinger’s clearance was suspended he had taken a detail to the National Security Council as senior director for strategy. He was only there for five months before he was recalled to the Pentagon, stripped of his prestigious White House detail, and ordered to perform bureaucratic make-work in a Pentagon annex Bigley calls “the land of misfit toys.” His security clearance was eventually revoked in March 2018, despite the Pentagon “refusing to turn over a single page of its purported evidence of Lovinger’s wrongdoing,” Bigley stated. Conservative watchdog group, Judicial Watch, recently filed a federal lawsuit against the Defense Department to obtain the withheld records.

In another article: Congressman Gaetz wants Ohr, Simpson and Lisa Page to all testify together to iron out any conflicts.

GOP Reps Say Discrepancy Between Ohr, Page, Simpson Testimonies
By Saagar Enjeti | The Daily Caller | August 28, 2018


Reps. Darrell Issa and Matt Gaetz highlighted discrepancies between DOJ official Bruce Ohr’s Tuesday testimony before Congress and the testimony given by Lisa Page and Glenn Simpson.

“In the first hour of testimony, and it’s either Bruce Ohr is lying or Glenn Simpson is lying,” Gaetz told reporters Tuesday, continuing “in another circumstance, it’s either Bruce Ohr is lying, or Lisa Page is lying.”

Gaetz was supported later by Issa, who confirmed the Ohr discrepancy with Simpson’s testimony and said, “There’s also some ambiguity between Ohr and Lisa Page. We will have to go back to the loop to find out which one of them is able to change their story or face perjury.”

Judicial Watch report that there were NO HEARINGS in regards FISA WARRANT applications.

They were "rubber-stamped" by Judge each time, based on the written submissions (already released, heavily redacted). I suspect the judges did not even bother to read, but even if they did it was with a bias that shows almost all applications are approved.. a routine rather than much serious evaluation of merits/legality.

I said early on... but the point is never brought up...
(I'll leave a message on Judicial Watch YT) :cool

The document that would reveal a lot is the very first FISA WARRANT APPLICATION on Carter Page that was reported to have been turned down. The difference between that and the subsequent successful application(s) would clearly show what the FBI/DoJ added to hoodwink the judge.

Russian oligarch admits to collusion…with Robert Mueller’s FBI

Oleg Deripaska wants it known that he worked with the FBI and DOJ, and that he had nothing to do with the Steele dossier.

By Tyler Durden, September 2, 2018

Russian Oligarch Oleg Deripaska, a close associate of Vladimir Putin, has gone on record with The Hill‘s John Solomon – admitting to colluding with Americans leading up to the 2016 US election, except it might not be what you’re thinking.

Deripaska, rumored to be Donald Trump’s “back channel” to Putin via the Russian’s former association with Paul Manafort, says he “colluded” with the US Government between 2009 and 2016.

In 2009, when Robert Mueller was running the FBI, the agency asked Deripaska to spend $25 million of his own money to bankroll an FBI-supervised operation to rescue a retired FBI agent – Robert Levinson, who was kidnapped in 2007 while working on a 2007 CIA contract in Iran. This in and of itself is more than a bit strange.

Deripaska agreed, however the Obama State Department, headed by Hillary Clinton, scuttled a last-minute deal with Iran before Levinson could be released. He hasn’t been heard from since

It is reported that Trump team has AGREED to answer WRITTEN questions from The Mueller Witch Hunt.

I can NOT find confirmation... yet

ETA... looking like The failing NY Times fake news to me? Nothing is certain :roll



Mueller Will Accept Some Written Answers From Trump
By Maggie Haberman and Michael S. Schmidt
Sept. 4, 2018

The special counsel, Robert S. Mueller III, will accept written answers from President Trump on questions about whether his campaign conspired with Russia’s election interference, Mr. Mueller’s office told Mr. Trump’s lawyers in a letter, two people briefed on it said on Tuesday.

But on another significant aspect of the investigation — whether the president tried to obstruct the inquiry itself — Mr. Mueller and his investigators understood that issues of executive privilege could complicate their pursuit of a presidential interview and did not ask for written responses on that matter, according to the letter, which was sent on Friday.

Mr. Mueller did not say that he was giving up on an interview altogether, including on questions of obstruction of justice. But the tone of the letter and the fact that the special counsel did not ask for written responses on obstruction prompted some Trump allies to conclude that if an interview takes place, its scope will be more limited than Mr. Trump’s legal team initially believed, the people said.
