Guest post by Joe Hoft
Very few Americans who voted for President Trump would believe that today we have a special investigation into the President for collusion with Russia during the election and none into the many Clinton and Obama criminal activities unearthed over the past decade.
More than one year ago, on May 17, 2017, corrupt Assistant Attorney General Rod Rosenstein appointed a Special Counsel to look into the phony Trump – Russia collusion allegations, a total scam to remove Donald Trump from the Presidency that he won.
Attorney General Jeff Sessions recused himself of anything related to Russia during the 2016 Presidential campaign and the Robert Mueller Special Counsel team took over to investigate the alleged Trump crimes. Ironically over the past year, no crimes related to the President have been uncovered but numerous crimes have been uncovered related to the Deep State’s corruption, abuse and brazen disregard for the rule of law through the Trump – Russia ‘Witch Hunt’.
A TOTAL WITCH HUNT!!!

One of the most profound interviews that described the events over the past few years by the corrupt and criminal individuals in the Deep State that led to the Mueller investigation was reported by the Daily Caller in January. Legal expert Joe DiGenova explained the many criminal activities by the Deep State –
Corrupt and dirty cop Mueller started the ‘witch hunt’ and began looking into individuals with any relationship with President Trump. Mueller’s team were not interested in crimes that President Trump committed. There are none. Instead, Mueller went after anyone with any relationship to the President. His entire team has serious conflicts of interest and his investigation is unconstitutional, but this has not deterred Mueller.
Dirty Cop Mueller and his team went ahead and indicted some individuals related to the President and then he apparently made up other individuals out of thin air and indicted them too. Here’s a list of the indictments and their current status.
General Mike Flynn
The biggest indictment to date by the dirty cops and attorneys on the Mueller team was the indictment of General Flynn for lying to the FBI. One of the two individuals that Flynn apparently lied to was Peter Strzok in a discussion at the White House shortly after the inauguration. Strzok was the lead investigator who took Hillary Clinton’s testimony in her email scandal and Strzok was apparently fine when with Hillary destroyed her server, 30,000 emails, numerous phones with hammers and lied to him and all of America. However, shortly after Flynn spoke with Strzok, former Attorney General Sally Yates went to the White House and told the President the General had lied.
Flynn was fired by the President and then when Mueller started his witch hunt he charged Flynn for lying to the FBI. Flynn eventually pled guilty but the judge overseeing the case was recused. Judge Rudolph Contreras was also a FISA Court judge and a friend of Strzok’s.
To date Flynn has not been sentenced after the new judge demanded Mueller provide the General with all information related to his case. Also, new evidence has unfolded of Sally Yates and/or former FBI Head Andrew McCabe doctoring and destroying evidence that led to Flynn’s conviction. The Senate has asked the FBI and DOJ for this support but it has not been provided to date because some expect it is not there (it was destroyed). They have also asked for the other FBI Agent who interviewed Flynn with Strzok but to date the FBI will not allow him to be interviewed by the Senate.
The entire Flynn case is now not only falling apart but it appears Strzok, Yates, McCabe, Mueller and possibly others may be involved in crimes in doctoring and destroying evidence and charging Flynn for a crime as a result.
The 13 Russians ‘Made Up’ by the Mueller Team
In an effort to tie their corrupt investigation to Russia, the Mueller team indicted 13 Russians after presenting their cases to a grand jury in February of this year. Immediately, these indictments were suspect as everyone on to the corrupt Mueller team knew that these ‘Russians’ would never be brought to justice, even if they were real, because they would never come to the US to stand trial and risk being put in jail.
Unfortunately for Mueller however, this too has turned into a royal mess.
Lawyers defending one of three Russian companies indicted with the 13 Russians, Concord Management, showed up for court. Mueller’s team was caught off guard and never expected this. They immediately asked the judge for more time but the judge denied their pleas noting that they were the ones who indicted the Russian company in the first place.
When the case proceeded, the Concord attorney’s noted that another of the three companies indicted by Mueller was not in existence at the time of Mueller’s indictment. They called this a case of Mueller indicting the proverbial ‘ham sandwich’.
At a following court appearance, the attorneys representing Concord stated that the corrupt Mueller team’s allegations of 13 Russian individuals impacting the 2016 election were “made up” nonsense. The individuals were not even real.
Concord Management’s lawyers revealed that Mueller’s team had ignored over 70 discovery requests they had made for information before the case. In response Mueller’s team offered to give Concord Management’s lawyers a massive amount of social media data from those dangerous trolls who sought to influence the US election and the majority of the data was in RUSSIAN.
Mueller’s lawyers then admitted that they don’t even have English translations for the Russian social media posts. Mueller’s lawyers don’t have English translations of the Russian social media posts but somehow Americans were influenced by these Russian language posts?
Yesterday it was reported that Mueller’s team didn’t want to hand over the data that had been accumulated related to the Russians because the Russians would then use the information to spy on Americans (ignoring that they supposedly already had).
The case of the Russians has quickly turned into a big joke. The Mueller team should be ashamed for bringing it to the court and indicted for making the whole thing up.
Paul Manafort was President Trump’s campaign manager for a short time during the 2016 election. The Mueller team initially charged him with multiple counts of not filling in forms required by the law starting in 2005. In an effort to pay his legal fees, Manafort borrowed money using personal collateral or real estate. Mueller and his team then charged Manafort with bank fraud claiming these loans overstated the value of his properties. This past week Mueller’s team then charged Manafort with trying to tamper with witnesses.
Manafort’s attorneys have argued that the entire case was unconstitutional based on no crime committed by Trump required to set up a Special Counsel and the scope of the case being unlimited and therefore also against the law related to Special Counsels. However, the judge on one of Manafort’s cases is Obama appointed Judge Jackson. With her record it is doubtful that Manafort will receive a fair trial and she already has disagreed with these arguments from Manafort’s legal team.
Fortunate for Manafort another judge overseeing one of his cases, Judge T. S. Ellis, has asked Mueller’s team for the scope document of the Special Counsel investigation. When the Mueller team said it was classified, the judge said he would be the judge of that.
This case has been delayed due to the judge’s family issues but the judge is due to opine on Manafort’s team’s argument that the indictments were beyond the scope of Mueller’s Special Counsel’s mandate. If the judge agrees, at least one of Manaforts cases may be thrown out. Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani said he wouldn’t be surprised if Judge Ellis dismisses Manafort’s cases for government misconduct as well.
Richard Gates pleaded not guilty to all charges against him by Mueller, many related to years before the election.
Rick Gates was named alongside Manafort in the recent charges brought by the special counsel. He’s accused of 11 counts related to filing false income tax returns and three counts of failure to report foreign bank and financial accounts.
Gates pleaded guilty on Feb. 23 to federal conspiracy and false-statements charges.
In wake of the guilty plea, Mueller moved to drop the 22 bank and tax fraud charges against him. The decision to drop the more expansive charges against Gates could suggest that the former Trump campaign official is cooperating and providing good information to Mueller’s team.
Manafort has challenged the court as to the constitutionality of indictments for activities before the 2016 election. He has a valid argument which would no doubt relate to Gates’ case as well.
Papadopoulos has a questionable background. He was a young man who traveled to the UK and apparently was set up by spies inserted into the Trump campaign by the FBI in early 2016.
A former foreign policy adviser to Trump’s presidential campaign, George Papadopoulos pleaded guilty in 2017 to making false statements to the FBI regarding “the timing, extent and nature of his relationships and interactions with certain foreign nationals whom he understood to have close connections with senior Russian government officials,” according to court documents.
Papadopoulos, like the others indicted, is under gag orders so we really don’t know what he did or said to the FBI. If he was set up as has been implied in the recent news stories, he too may have a chance to have his case overturned.
Alex van der Zwaan and Richard Pinedo
These are two individuals no one has ever heard of or will ever remember. van der Zwan was charged with lying to the FBI and Pinedo was charged for selling bank accounts to Russians, even though Pinedo said he didn’t know he was selling accounts to Russians. Both cases sound suspect and more related to abuse of power by the Mueller team than actual crimes being committed.
All in all, Mueller’s indictments are pathetic and falling apart. He and his team of corrupt and conflicted deep state crooks should not only have their cases thrown out, they should be indicted for their actions and efforts to overthrow the duly elected President of the United States, Donald J. Trump. Let justice be served!

Forecast: GOP now more likely to have *at least* 54 Senate seats next year than to lose its majority
A nifty catch by Philip Klein, eyeballing the latest data from Nate Silver’s model (as of 5:15 p.m. ET). Check it yourself. Democrats momentarily have an 18.4 percent chance of gaining two seats and winning a majority next month. Whereas Republicans have a 9.1 percent chance of gaining three, a 5.5 percent chance of gaining four, a 3.2 percent chance of gaining five, a 1.4 percent of gaining six, a 0.7 percent chance of gaining seven, and a 0.3 percent chance of shooting the lights out and gaining eight (which would leave them one seat shy of a filibuster-proof majority, for what it’s worth). Add those up and you get a 20.2 percent chance of 54 or better.
Which can be summed up in four words: Justice Amy Coney Barrett.
Klein on the path to 54:
Though Republicans were always favorites to keep the Senate, their odds have improved in recent weeks, with three states in particular giving them a boost. Republicans are now considered “likely” to keep their seats in Texas and Tennessee and North Dakota seems ready to flip into the Republican column. Barring any other major upsets, victories in those three races would be enough for Republicans to keep the Senate — hence their 81.6 percent chances overall.
To get to 54, the most likely scenario would be that Republicans win the tossup states of Nevada and Missouri, and then surge to victory in Arizona and Florida (two races that are currently tilting Democrat, but well within range of Republican victory). Beyond that, they’d have to start flipping some seats that are currently considered “likely” to remain Democrat, such as Montana and West Virginia.
Eh, I don’t know if Montana and Indiana, the latter of which he neglected to mention, are all that “likely” to remain Democratic. They’re leaning that way, with both Jon Tester and Joe Donnelly clinging to three-point leads. But Montana hasn’t been polled in three weeks and the latest from Indiana has Donnelly up four but with just 44 percent of the vote. In fact, in none of the four polls dating back to August has Donnelly topped 44, suggesting that a lot of Hoosiers are thinking hard about whether to stick with the incumbent. It’s likely that the GOP will be disappointed somewhere on Election Night — Missouri, Nevada, and Arizona are all leading candidates — but going for one for two on Montana and Indiana seems doable.
Whichever way they do it, if they can get to 54 then Collins and Murkowski might well be nonfactors during the next SCOTUS battle. Flake won’t be in the Senate at all, of course. Trump really might have the arsenal he needs to fill a Ginsburg or Breyer vacancy with a conservative.
That’s the good news. The not-so-good news, also from Silver’s model:
Click the link and add up the different probable outcomes and you’ll see that the GOP has about the same odds of holding the House as Democrats do of winning … at least 54 seats. They’ve got a 10 percent chance of winning at least 60. Gonna be a lot of subpoenas for Pat Cipollone to cope with next year.
There are no new swing-state polls as I write this but keep an eye on the one of Arizona that’s currently in progress (yes, in progress) at the NYT’s site, the Upshot. As I write this at a little after 5 p.m. on the east coast, they’ve compiled a sample of 299 people — not large enough yet to give us confidence in the topline numbers but large enough to make it worth paying attention to. Currently Martha McSally leads Kyrsten Sinema by four points, 49/45. If that holds through the end of the poll, it would be the second straight survey showing McSally ahead after trailing for most of the race. (The previous poll had her up six.) Stay tuned.

Midterm 2018 TEXAS: Robert (Beto) O’Rourke vs. Ted Cruz
Texas is Texas.
You don’t mess with Texas!
Texans don’t want a far left US Senator who lies about his background and police records, DUI included, and abuses everything the Lone Star State stands for.
Senator Ted Cruz is up by at least 5 points — but that is not enough.
Cruz is a real conservative and an intellectual giant. He has the highest possible ratings from conservative groups as a sitting US Senator.
We can’t let him down.
His opponent Beto (really Robert) O’Rourke isn’t Hispanic but he is loudly PROGRESSIVE.
He is a phony.
He is a Democratic Socialist and would spell doom for our Republic.
He wants open borders, more rights for criminals, and an end to the petroleum economy.
Trump won Texas by 9 points.
Cruz should win reelection by at least that amount.
Recall Cruz not only voted for Judge Kavanaugh but he articulately defended due process and innocent until proven guilty – the very hallmark of western jurisprudence.
We need him; America needs his voice in the Senate.
There has not been a Democrat to hold statewide office in Texas since 1994!
Keep it that way.
Cruz is a star in national politics and a firm vote for our side. He makes America first! And he is the best advocate for Texas bare none.
Turnout is critical.
Cruz MUST win.
Make this viral in every corner of Texas.

Pat Robertson: C’mon, we’re not going to blow up a key Middle East alliance over one little murder
Lefties are marveling that a brand-name Christian conservative would be encouraging followers to look the other way at an assassination, but they’re forgetting Jesus’s parting words at the end of the Sermon on the Mount: “If you want to make an omelette, you’ve got to break a few eggs.”
Wait, am I misremembering? My youthful memories of the gospels are not the best. I think perhaps the savior’s actual parting words were “Velvet glove, iron fist.”
I mean, that at least sounds like Jesus.
Lotta mixed feelings about the evangelical turn towards hard-nosed realpolitik under Trump. On the one hand, the gripe about Christian conservatives used to be that they were forever trying to inject morals into the messy business of politics, made more uncomfortable by the fact that many millions of people disagree with some of their stances on sexual morality and resent their attempts to convert them into policy. Well, good news: Between Robertson’s take on the Khashoggi affair and the complete pass given to Trump on matters like Stormygate, there’s less moralizing than ever.
Conservatives & Christians need to stop electing “nice guys”. They might make great Christian leaders but the US needs street fighters like @realDonaldTrump at every level of government b/c the liberal fascists Dems are playing for keeps & many Repub leaders are a bunch of wimps!

The bad news? I’m unclear from the clip below on how many murders Pastor Robertson would be willing to tolerate in the name of preserving the alliance and “$100 billion worth of arms sales,” as he notes in passing. Presumably his interest in the latter answers my question: Some of those weapons will be used to continue killing civilians in neighboring Yemen, as he doubtless knows. If Robertson’s willing to condone that in the name of checking Iran, naturally he would condone looking the other way at a lot of things, Khashoggi’s murder just one among them. Christianity’s nice and all but we’ve gotta live in the real world.
I honestly don’t know whether to call him a fraud or to salute him for taking a cold but sober view of the international chessboard.
There may be another reason why he and POTUS’s friends at CBN are rushing to provide cover here, though:
JUST IN: Eleven Senate Democrats, led by Tom Udall, ask Trump, as well as Don Jr. and Eric at the Trump Org, to turn over information about business ties to Saudi Arabia — specifically referencing a possible Magnitsky Act determination and consequences. https://t.co/HHs3diWgkz pic.twitter.com/NItDy691Bh

To some extent the Saudis’ problem is Trump’s problem. Right now Trump can afford to ignore the Democrats’ interest in finding out how much his and the Kingdom’s interests overlap. In three months, with the House likely in Democratic hands, it’ll be harder.
