New Docs Paint Rosenstein as Active Participant in Deep State Coup
Newly Released Judicial Watch Docs Paint Rosenstein as Active Participant in Deep State Coup
“astonishing emails further confirm the dishonest corruption behind his appt of Mueller. They also show a shockingly cozy relationship between Mr. Rosenstein & anti-Trump media reporters”
Judicial Watch on Wednesday released 145 pages of former Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein’s communications which include a one-line email from Rosenstein to Robert Mueller stating “The boss and his staff do not know about our discussions.” That email came just five days before Rosenstein appointed Mueller to take over the FBI’s Russia investigation as special counsel, roiling Trump’s presidency.
The communications—which include “off the record” emails with major media outlets around the date of Mueller’s appointment—show that Rosenstein did not just dispassionately go along with the fraudulent probe in an attempt to get at the truth, but was an active participant in the deep state coup, secretly plotting with other FBI and DOJ officials against the president of the United States.
In a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request last Fall, Judicial Watch sought e-mails, text messages, and other records of communication addressed to or received by Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein between May 8, 2017, and May 22, 2017.

Burisma Holdings Paid Joe Biden $900,000 For Lobbying Activities: Ukrainian MP
Derkach publicized the documents at a press conference at the Interfax-Ukraine agency Wednesday as he said the records, “describe the mechanism of getting money by Biden Sr.”
“This was the transfer of Burisma Group’s funds for lobbying activities, as investigators believe, personally to Joe Biden through a lobbying company. Funds in the amount of $900,000 were transferred to the U.S.-based company Rosemont Seneca Partners, which according to open sources, in particular, the New York Times, is affiliated with Biden. The payment reference was payment for consultative services,” Derkach said.
He also publicized sums that were transferred to Burisma Group representatives, in particular Hunter Biden, a son of the former U.S. vice president.
“According to the documents, Burisma paid no less than $16.5 million to [former Polish President, who became an independent director at Burisma Holdings in 2014] Aleksander Kwasniewski, [chairman of the Burisma board of independent directors] Alan Apter, [Burisma independent director] Devon Archer and Hunter Biden [who joined the Burisma board of directors in 2014],” Derkach said.
“Using political and economic levelers of influencing Ukrainian authorities and manipulating the issue of providing financial aid to Ukraine, Joe Biden actively assisted closing criminal cases into the activity of former Ukrainian Ecology Minister Mykola Zlochevsky, who is the founder and owner of Burisma Group,” he said.
“Biden’s fifth visit to Kyiv on December 7-8, 2015 was devoted to making a decision on the resignation of [then Ukrainian Prosecutor General] Viktor Shokin over the case of Zlochevsky and Burisma. Loan guarantees worth $1 billion that the United States was to give to Ukraine was the point of pressure. Biden himself admitted exerting pressure in his speech at the Council of Foreign Relations in January 2018, calling Shokin ‘son of a bitch who was fired’,” Derkach said.

Intel Expert Tony Shaffer: Government Officials Trained in “Information Dark Arts” Are Using These Techniques Against President Trump
The latest attack by the shadow government is by highly trained intelligence officials in coordination with Democrat Party operatives and the fake news media surrounding President Trump’s phone call with the Ukrainian President.
We know now since President Zelensky has defended President Trump twice already that there was nothing unusual, unethical or illegal about Trump’s call with Zelensky in late July.
However, the Democrats, their deep state operatives and their liberal fake news media have succeeded in persuading a large swath of the US population that Trump committed a criminal act during the call.
Tony Shaffer says this is another example of how trained intel operatives are using their training against the sitting US president.
Tony Shaffer: The pattern that we’ve examined and looked at looks to me like individuals who are trained in what I’ve done and they’ve decided that they are going to use those talents for purposes of political gain, not to protect the American people… The appearances to me Richard are that you have individuals who’ve decided they are willing to vacate tho oath of office for purposes of using these immensely powerful, very dark art, but effective dark arts for purposes of a political party, not to benefit the American people.
This is also called TREASON.
God hear our pleas for justice.
HERE WE GO: Giuliani Says The Next Couple Weeks Will Be Huge, Goes After Obama
Former New York City Mayor and President Trump's personal attorney Rudy Giuliani and former US Attorney Joe diGenova hammered the House Democrats impeachment inquiry during an interview with Fox News host Laura Ingraham.
Giuliani shocked Fox News viewers when he dropped several bombs about former President Barack Obama and how he may be involved with the ongoing scandals.
"For years Obama had a pay for play operation in his administration and it’s disgusting and one of the reasons they’re fighting so hard." Giuliani started. "If Biden comes out, so does Clinton come out and about three others. This goes right to the top of the Obama administration and the administration that says, ‘I didn’t have scandals’ will be the most scandal ridden administration in our history. Obama didn’t care about ethics. He didn’t care otherwise it wouldn’t happen."
DiGenova jumped in saying, "That’s right"
Giuliani continued: "A Vice President should have been stopped from doing this by a President who had the slightest bit of integrity. But a Chicago ‘pol’ like Obama – pay for play eight times – millions of dollars to your Vice President [Biden] and hundreds of millions of dollars to your Secretary of State [Hillary Clinton]. They just bought the offices. Crooks."

In midst of 2016 election, State Department saw Burisma as Joe Biden’s issue, memos show
n recent interviews, Joe Biden has distanced himself from his son’s work at a Ukrainian gas company that was under investigation during the Obama years, with the former vice president suggesting he didn’t even know Hunter Biden served on the board of Burisma Holdings.
There is plenty of evidence that conflicts with the former vice president’s account, including Hunter Biden’s own story that he discussed the company once with his famous father.
There also was a December 2015 New York Times story that raised the question of whether Hunter Biden’s role at Burisma posed a conflict of interest for the vice president, especially when Joe Biden was leading the fight against Ukrainian corruption while Hunter Biden’s firm was under investigation by Ukrainian prosecutors.
But whatever the Biden family recollections, the Obama State Department clearly saw the Burisma Holdings investigation in the midst of the 2016 presidential election as a Joe Biden issue.
Memos newly released through a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit filed by the Southeastern Legal Foundation on my behalf detail how State officials in June 2016 worked to prepare the new U.S. ambassador to Ukraine, Marie Yovanovitch, to handle a question about “Burisma and Hunter Biden.”
In multiple drafts of a question-and-answer memo prepared for Yovanovitch’s Senate confirmation hearing, the department’s Ukraine experts urged the incoming ambassador to stick to a simple answer.
“Do you have any comment on Hunter Biden, the Vice President’s son, serving on the board of Burisma, a major Ukrainian Gas Company?,” the draft Q&A asked.
The recommended answer for Yovanovitch: “For questions on Hunter Biden’s role in Burisma, I would refer you to Vice President Biden’s office.”
The Q&A is consistent with other information flowing out of State. As I reported yesterday, when a Burisma representative contacted State in February 2016 to ask for the department’s help in quashing the corruption allegations, Hunter Biden’s role on the company’s board was prominently cited.
And a senior State Department official who testified recently in the impeachment proceedings reportedly told lawmakers he tried to warn the vice president’s office that Burisma posed a conflict for Joe Biden but was turned aside.
There are no laws that would have prevented Hunter Biden from joining Burisma, even as his father oversaw Ukraine policy for the President Obama.
And the corruption investigations launched in 2014 by British and Ukraine authorities involving Burisma and its owner Mykola Zlocvhevsky involved activities that pre-dated Hunter Biden’s arrival on the board. They were settled in late 2016 and early 2017.
Some of Biden’s media defenders have falsely suggested the investigations were dormant. They were not.
The real public interest question involves Joe Biden. Federal ethics rules require government officials to avoid even the appearance of a conflict of interest, and ethics experts I talked with say the vice president should have recused himself from issues affecting Burisma.
That became poignantly public when Biden leveraged the threat of canceling $1 billion in U.S. aid in March 2016 to get Ukraine to fire its top prosecutor, Viktor Shokin, who just happened to oversee the Burisma probe. A month before the firing, Shokin escalated the corruption probe against Burisma by seizing the company owner’s property and assets.
Shokin says he was making plans to interview Hunter Biden and insists he was fired because he refused to stand down on the Burisma probe. Joe Biden insists he prompted Shokin’s firing because he believed the prosecutor was ineffective.
There are more memos and documents to be released in the coming months under the FOIA lawsuit I filed with the Southeastern Legal Foundation that may shine light on what actually happened.
But one thing is already clear: long before President Trump or his attorney Rudy Giuliani began investigating Ukrainian issues, career State officials already saw Burisma as an issue for Joe Biden.
When I see the guilty brought to justice, when I see Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, James Comey, James Clapper, John Brennan, Adam Schiff and the rest of the D.C. Swamp/Deep State cuffed and frog-walking to the prison bus heading for one of the 57 Super Max facilities, then I'll believe that we have finally achieved the upper hand over these treacherous, treasonous criminals. My guess is some small-time crook will take the fall for this entire slimy scandal, and like Epstein, he'll be murdered while at the holding cell even before he can plead his innocence. Republican empty suits, even as I write this are in the process of caving to Leftists and Anti-Trumper's. I've never had great expectations from Republicans in authority, because great expectations lead to great disappointments. Republican politicians have never, ever in history stuck together on or for anything, there is no reason to expect them to stand by Donald Trump, unless of course to see them stand by and watch him be continuously railroaded by the Left.
Jerome, I agree 100%! To many times we thought "we have them now", and then nothing happens.
The report on an internal watchdog probe into whether the FBI followed the law and its own policies while applying for a warrant to surveil a former Trump campaign aide during the 2016 election is "imminent," Attorney General William Barr said Wednesday.
Justice Department spokesperson Kerri Kupec confirmed to The Hill that Barr had been asked about Inspector General Michael Horowitz's probe into the warrant to surveil former Trump campaign aide Carter Page during a press conference in Memphis, Tenn.
It's my understanding that it is imminent," Barr said. "A number of people who are mentioned in the report are having an opportunity to right now to comment on how they're quoted in the report, and after that process is over — it should be very short — the report will be issued."
He also praised Horowitz as a "fiercely independent" and "superb" investigator.
