U.S. District Judge T.S. Ellis III Rips Special Counsel Robert Mueller in Paul Manffort Case … “You don’t really care about Mr. Manafort. You really care about what information Mr. Manafort can give you to lead to Mr. Trump” and his eventual prosecution or impeachment.” (VIDEO)
WOW, FEDERAL JUDGE DROPS BOMB ON MUELLER INVESTIGATION AND THEIR “UNFETTERED POWER” …
As reported at Reuters, U.S. District Judge T.S. Ellis III questioned in federal court in Virginia that the Special Counsel Robert Mueller should not have “unfettered power.” in the Russia probe. Judge T.S. Ellis went on the rebuke the Mueller investigation with regards to the Paul Manifort case in that they exceeded their authority. Judge Ellis went on to say, “You don’t really care about Mr. Manafort. You really care about what information Mr. Manafort can give you to lead to Mr. Trump” and his eventual prosecution or impeachment.” It is about time some one put their foot down with regards to the out of control Mueller witch hunt. The federal judge literally accused the Muller team of lying. Even CNN fake news had to admit this was a bad day for the Mueller team.
A federal judge said Special Counsel Robert Mueller should not have “unfettered power” in probing ties between President Donald Trump’s campaign and Russia, and accused Mueller of using criminal cases to pressure Trump’s allies to turn against him.
At a tense hearing in a federal court in Virginia on Friday, U.S. District Judge T.S. Ellis III sharply questioned whether Mueller exceeded his authority in filing tax and bank fraud charges against Trump’s former campaign manager, Paul Manafort.
Ellis said the indictment appeared to be a way for Mueller to leverage Manafort into providing information about Trump.
“The vernacular is to sing,” he said.
“You don’t really care about Mr. Manafort,” the judge said. “You really care about what information Mr. Manafort can give you to lead to Mr. Trump” and his eventual prosecution or impeachment.
“It’s unlikely you’re going to persuade me the special counsel has unfettered power to do whatever he wants,” Ellis, who was appointed by Republican President Ronald Reagan, said at a hearing on Manafort’s motion to dismiss the Virginia charges.
Judge questions Mueller decision to prosecute Manafort – Trump discusses at NRA Convention
Dershowitz reacts to judge questioning Manafort case motives from ‘The Ingraham Angle.’
The case before Judge Ellis consists of tax and bank fraud charges that not only have nothing to do with alleged Russian collusion, but also predate the 2016 presidential campaign by a decade…
“I don’t see what relationship this indictment has with anything the special counsel is authorized to investigate,” Judge Ellis said. He decried Mueller’s apparently “unfettered power.” He did not find the power to prosecute Mueller in the May 2017 appointment order, which directed him to pursue links between Russia and the Trump campaign, as well as “any matter that arose or may arise directly” from the investigation. He said that Mueller improperly took over existing Justice Department investigations into Manafort without adequately explaining what connection it had to the Russia probe…
Judge Ellis doesn’t find [an authority to investigate such matters] in the May 2017 memo by Deputy Attorney General Rosenstein. Team Mueller was represented at the hearing by former deputy solicitor general Michael Dreeben. At the hearing Dreeben took a drubbing. Asserting that Mueller’s authority is even broader than the mandate given 2017 memo, Dreeben claimed that national security precluded a full accounting of Mueller’s authority.
Dreeben cited Rosenstein’s August 2017 memo — covered by Andrew McCarthy in this NR column — explicitly granting Mueller the authority to investigate Manafort’s Ukraine dealings years before the 2016 election.
Mueller must have given Judge Ellis the same highly redacted copy of the August 2017 memo that is linked above. Judge Ellis wanted to see the whole thing. He gave Mueller two weeks to consult with intelligence agencies to determine whether they can confide a sealed, unredacted version of the memo with him.
Dreeben told him the redacted portions did not pertain to the Manafort case. “I’ll be the judge,” Ellis said.
CNN quotes Judge Ellis: “You don’t really care about Mr. Manafort’s bank fraud.” Judge Ellis demonstrated his grasp of what I’ve been calling the Mueller Switch Project. He said prosecutors were interested in Manafort only because of his potential to provide material that would lead to President Trump’s “prosecution or impeachment.”
THESE PEOPLE ARE INSANE AND JUST CAN’T ACCEPT THEY LOST TO DONALD J. TRUMP … TALK ABOUT YOUR SORE LOSERS!!!
By the way the Democrats and Hillary have acted since the 2016 elections, thank God Donald Trump won.
Hey DNC, Democrats and the LEFT, don’t ask for things they just might come true. For nearly a year Special Counsel Robert Mueller has been trying to find evidence of collusion between Russian and Donald Trump and has discovered butkis. Now, with Mueller floundering to find any crimes to pin on Trump, FBI former #2 Andrew McCabe in hot water after the DOJ’s Inspector General, FBI’s former #1 being looked at for leaking classified info, the deep state being exposed … we get this classic that the DNC is suing Russia, WikiLeaks and Trump campaign for interference in the 2016 election. UNREAL. They LEFT just cannot accept that they lost to Trump. The DNC is seeking recompense for what it says was millions of dollars in damages from Russia’s hacking of its internal emails, which were then published by WikiLeaks, with the encouragement of then-candidate Trump and his campaign. REALLY? This from the same people who never let the FBI examine their servers after the so-called hack. What were they afraid of, that is was an inside job?
The Democratic Party on Friday sued President Donald Trump’s presidential campaign, the Russian government and the Wikileaks group, claiming a broad illegal conspiracy to help Trump win the 2016 election.
The multimillion-dollar lawsuit filed in Manhattan federal court says that “In the Trump campaign, Russia found a willing and active partner in this effort” to mount “a brazen attack on American Democracy,” which included Russian infiltration of the Democratic Party computer network.
The Trump campaign, according to the lawsuit, “gleefully welcomed Russia’s help.”
The suit says that “preexisting relationships with Russia and Russian oligarchs” with Trump and Trump associates “provided fertile ground for [the] Russia-Trump conspiracy.”
The common purpose of the scheme, according to the Democratic National Committee, was to “bolster Trump and denigrate the Democratic Party nominee,” Hillary Clinton, while boosting the candidacy of Trump, “whose policies would benefit the Kremlin.”
Tom Perez, chairman of the Democratic National Committee, said the party’s suit “is not partisan, it’s patriotic.”
The DNC is playing a very dangerous game. They are in full on “resistance” mode all they time, which is growing really old. I have one thing to say to the DCN, you better be prepared for “discovery”. Maybe we will find out once and for all that they DNC was not hacked, but an inside job. The Democrats have nothing but to cause chaos. I cannot wait for this to backfire on them. You have been warned.
The Democrats and Hillary Clinton have been the biggest bunch of sore losers ever. Hillary Clinton was a terrible candidate, hell she lost to an unknown Obama 8 years earlier. Now sour grapes Hillary who just cant let it go blames everyone else in the word but herself, Hillary Clinton on Election Night: ‘They Were Never Going to Let Me Be President’. Good grief folks, does it ever jut dawn on you by they way you and she is acting is the reason why you lost? The Dems better hope this case gets tossed on summary judgement, because the ultimate destruction of the Democrats will be when Julian Assange states he received the emails from Seth Rich.
The Trump campaign called it a “sham lawsuit” and said it smacks of desperation on the part of the DNC. Gee, ya think?
Former FBI Director James Comey Admits He Never Told President Trump That Steele Dossier Was Funded By DNC (VIDEO)
MAYBE COMEY IS EXAVTLY WHAT TRUMP CALLED HIM, A UNTRUTHFUL, LYING SLIME-BALL …
In a highly anticipated interview with ABC’s George Stephanopoulos, fired FBI Director James Comey actually admitted that he never told President Donald Trump that the Steele dossier was funded by his political opponents. When hearing the surprising answer, even Stephanopoulos questioned such an action on the part of Comey. Stephanopoulos followed up and asked, “But did he have a right to know that?” Comey responded why, “I don’t know … it wasn’t necessary For my goal.” Hmm, and maybe that is the real question … WHAT WAS COMEY’S GOAL?
Comey Admits Didn’t Tell Trump “Dossier” Was DNC Doc., Saying So “Wasn’t Necessary For My Goal”
STEPHANOPOULOS: “Did you tell him that the Steele dossier had been financed by his political opponents?”
COMEY: “No. I didn’t.”
Thank you President Trump, I am honored you fired this slimeball as well.
Hillary Clinton Book ‘What Happened’ Excerpt, “Back up you creep, get away from me” … Hillary Still Lying, Check Out the Video Tape
HILLARY CANT HELP HERSELF, SHE IS A LAIR …
What a joke, Hillary Clinton’s new book ‘What Happened” is just more Hillary excuses and lies. She teased the book with the following excerpt trying to besmirch candidate Donald Trump for his actions during the second Presidential debate, “Back up you creep, get away from me” Back up, hovered behind her? She is the one who walked in front of him during the debate and invaded his space. Donald Trump actually was standing next to his chair. But once again we are witness to more Hillary lies and excuses as she plays the victim. If Hillary Clinton couldn’t handle this, how could she be President of the United States?
Invading your space, REALLY? What a snowflake. Thankfully this individual never won. I used to think that Hillary Clinton had larger CO-JONES than most men. Boy was I wrong. This woman was Secretary of State and she describes her time during the debate as if she had never encountered an uncomfortable situation ever. However, the most irony comes from the fact that she refers to others as a creep when she is married and has made excuses and defended the biggest creeper the White House has ever known.
Hillary Clinton calls President Donald Trump a “creep” who “love[s] to intimidate women” in an excerpt of her forthcoming memoir while detailing her experience at one of 2016’s presidential debates.
In the passage from Clinton’s memoir, “What Happened,” the former secretary of state recounts an “incredibly uncomfortable” moment during the second presidential debate in St. Louis on October 9, in which her “skin crawled” as Trump was “looming behind” her and “literally breathing down [her] neck.” A day prior, the Washington Post had released a video from 2005 of Trump making lewd comments about sexually assaulting women.
“Well, what would you do? Do you stay calm, keep smiling and carry on, as if he weren’t repeatedly invading your space?” asks Clinton in the book. “Or do you turn, look him in the eye, and say loudly and clearly: ‘Back up you creep, get away from me. I know you love to intimidate women, but you can’t intimidate me, so back up.’”
Go to 25:25 of video below and you can see what happens, Hillary moves in-front of Trump and the media changes the camera angle.

Hypocrite Al Gore’s Inconvenient Truth … His Home Guzzles More Electricity in One Year Than the Average American Family Uses in 21 Years”
IT AIN’T EASY BEING GREEN … WOULDN’T YOU THINK IF YOU THOUGHT CLIMATE CHANGE WAS THE SINGLE WORST THING EVER, THAT YOU WOULD LIVE BY WHAT YOU PREACHED AND SET AN EXAMPLE?
If you ever looked up the word hypocrite in the dictionary, you would see a picture of Al Gore. The former Vice President and now global warming crusader spends his time lecturing all of us about the evils of global warming, of sorry, climate change as he heeds none of his own words. His first move, ‘An Inconsistent Truth,’ proved to be completely false as none of his predictions came true. Even more comical, after his movie came out and the “green” wonder won an Academy Award, Gore was provided with some inconvenient facts about his home and lack of greenness.
Could he be more of a hypocrite? Let’s say Gore is correct, and I am in no way saying he is, but for argument sake. So is Gore so believes all this is harmful to the Earth, why is he one of the biggest abusers? How could anyone really believe what Gore spews as they see he is guilty of doing exactly what he lectures others to do?
Al Gore’s Inconvenient Reality: The Former Vice President’s Home Energy Use Surges up to 34 Times the National Average Despite Costly Green Renovation
In powering his home, Gore still greatly outpaces most Americans in energy consumption. The findings were shocking:
• The past year, Gore’s home energy use averaged 19,241 kilowatt hours (kWh) every month, compared to the U.S. household average of 901 kWh per month.3,4
• Gore guzzles more electricity in one year than the average American family uses in 21 years.5
• In September of 2016, Gore’s home consumed 30,993 kWh in just one month – as much energy as a typical American family burns in 34 months.
• During the last 12 months, Gore devoured 66,159 kWh of electricity just heating his pool. That is enough energy to power six average U.S. households for a year.
• From August 2016 through July 2017, Gore spent almost $22,000 on electricity bills.6
• Gore paid an estimated $60,000 to install 33 solar panels. Those solar panels produce an average of 1,092 kWh per month, only 5.7% of Gore’s typical monthly energy consumption.
However, even after these embarrassing facts were put forth from Mr. “Do as I say, not as I do” Gore, he supposedly made ‘green” changes to his 10,070 square feet home, his house is still an energy waster. This is the man that tells us that climate change is real and will cause the end of times. If he really believed this, why would he own a home like this?
Upon winning the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize, Gore stated, “The only way to solve this [environmental] crisis is for individuals to make changes in their own lives.”39 Judging by his own home electricity consumption, Gore is failing to live up to the standards he expects of everyone else.
After the embarrassing revelations that his home wolfed down nearly 20 times more electricity than the average American household, Gore made updates in an effort to make his home more energy efficient. Even those costly measures could not prevent his home energy consumption from rising even higher.
This year, Gore’s electricity consumption averages 19,241 kWh per month, or more than 21 times the typical usage in an American home. That is a considerable increase from Gore’s 2007 home energy consumption of about 18,400 kWh per month, which spurred a six-figure green renovation of the house.
Gore apologists blame the size of Gore’s home – a mansion, by any measure – for his extreme electricity use. That argument does not stand up to the facts. According to standards of energy efficiency, an “efficient” home burns between five and 10 kWh of electricity per square foot each year. Gore’s home annually burns nearly 23 kWh of electricity per square foot.
Al Gore has attained a near-mythical status for his frenzied efforts to propagandize global warming. At the same time, Gore has done little to prove his commitment to the cause in his own life. While Gore encourages people throughout the world to reduce their carbon footprint and make drastic changes to cut energy consumption, Gore’s own home electricity use has hypocritically increased to more than 21 times the national average this past year with no sign of slowing down.
