This says it all.
Painter Jon McNaughton has done it again.
Time to turn the tables on Mr. Mueller. Representative Louie Gohmert is trying, publishing a 48-page dossier on the sketchy special counsel. Read it here.
Next up for the magnifying glass: Stormy’s lawyer.
The Treasury Department’s inspector general is investigating whether confidential banking information related to a company controlled by President Trump’s personal attorney Michael Cohen may have been leaked, a spokesman said.
Rich Delmar, counsel to the inspector general, said that in response to media reports the office is “inquiring into allegations” that Suspicious Activity Reports on Cohen’s banking transactions were “improperly disseminated.”
Detailed claims about Cohen’s banking history were made public Tuesday by Michael Avenatti, an attorney for Stormy Daniels, the adult-film star who was paid $130,000 by Cohen shortly before the 2016 election to keep quiet about her alleged affair with Trump.
On Twitter, Avenatti circulated a dossier that purports to show that Cohen was hired last year by the U.S.-based affiliate of a Russian company owned by Viktor Vekselberg, a Russian business magnate who attended Trump’s inauguration and was recently subjected to sanctions by the U.S. government. The affiliate, New York investment firm Columbus Nova, confirmed the payment, saying it was for consulting on investments and other matters, but denied any involvement by Vekselberg. …
Who would actually be surprised if information seized in that sketchy raid on Trump’s personal attorney’s office may have been leaked to Trump’s political opponents? What’s new here? This has been going on since the Obama administration, when illegal spying and equally illegal “unmasking” took place, with subsequent leaking of private conversations and other raw intelligence to the media, all in order to hurt Trump and help Hillary.
By the way, Hillary Clinton and John Podesta are connected to Vekselberg, too, but don’t expect Mueller to investigate that potential Russian collusion.
We live in a banana republic.
If the status quo, the prosecutorial double standard, remains unaltered (where progressives skate but conservatives are held to the most extreme letter of the law), then we will never again see true justice in the USA.
And We the People will never again be allowed to choose our own leader.
