Russia Trial Hinges On A Thief, Not Russians

The Russian meddling investigation continues to be a witch hunt in search of a crime and the Paul Manafort trial features a despicable thief, embezzler and adulterer as Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s star witness. The only thing absent from the partisan politically farce . . . a Russian.

Manafort worked as a conservative political consultant on campaigns and causes in the United States and abroad. He stands charged in the Russia Probe for crimes of tax evasion and money laundering that occurred many years before his five months on the Trump Campaign. Special Counsel Mueller has loosely tied Manafort to the investigations because he worked for a Ukrainian organization that was pro-Russia. He didn’t actually take money from Russians, but he may not have reported it correctly.

The entire sideshow reminds of that old party game, “Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon.” The one where someone names a movie and you link actors and actresses back to a Kevin Bacon film. Mueller may consider naming the Manafort trial, “Six Degrees of Russian Meddling.” After spending upwards of $20 million in taxpayer money, he still doesn’t have a Russian or meddler. As the trial judge aptly noted in open court, Robert Mueller is not really after Russians or meddlers.

“You don’t really care about Mr. Manafort,” Judge T.S. Ellis reportedly said during the preliminary hearing. “You really care about what information Mr. Manafort can give you to lead you to Mr. Trump and an impeachment, or whatever.”

Those words have echoed across the American psyche. Many in the legal community recognize that Manafort is not being prosecuted for crimes, he’s being persecuted because he won’t throw dirt on the President of the United States. Mueller, on the other hand, appears willing to parade out a notorious thief and liar to get Pres. Trump — Rick Gates.

The Sorry Story Of Rick Gates

To say that Mueller lacks a witness with cleans hands would be something of an understatement. Gates, a former business associate of Manafort, looks worse on the witness stand than a mafia enforcer testifying against a crime family.

Gates has already admitted that he knowingly and admittedly committed crimes. He’s taking a deal from Mueller to implicate Manafort. The former Trump Campaign advisor would get a deal too, if he’d just implicate the president in some far-fetched Russia scheme.

The Russia probe’s star witness has already confessed, under oath, that he hid money from the U.S. government while managing Manafort’s business interests. He also got caught red-handed by investigators for embezzling hundreds of thousands of dollars from Manafort. Despite these facts, Gates had the audacity to claim he is now an honest man telling the truth.

“Yes, I made a decision. I’m here to tell the truth,” Gates said under oath. “Mr. Manafort had the same path. I’m here.”

Gates’ implication was that Manafort could have taken a deal for immunity or a reduced sentence for embarrassing Pres. Trump. Trying to gain a more favorable outcome from Mueller, Gates tried to throw shade on Manafort. He said his former employer “was good at knowing where the money was and how to spend it.” Judge Ellis begged to differ.

“He wasn’t that great at it,” Judge Ellis said, noting that Gates was able to steal money from Manafort without his knowledge. Americans also know the following about Gates’ web of deception.

Gates admitted to conducting a salacious extra-marital affair behind his spouse’s back. Gates lied to government investigators and plead guilty to the charge. Gates submitted fake reports to his former boss to pay for erroneous expenses.

At the end of the day, Mueller is asking a jury and the American people to believe this nefarious character is telling the truth that Manafort instructed him to hide money from the IRS. Even if in some alternative universe a reasonable person would believe such a proven liar and thief was credible, this has nothing to do with Russian election meddling.

The Russians are NOT Coming

It’s apparent to everyday Americans that the Manafort trial is a desperate and malicious prosecution against a man who briefly worked for Pres. Trump. But what makes this witch hunt an even greater national embarrassment is the obvious political bias shown by Mueller.

When Pres. Trump finally agreed to meet with Pres. Vladimir Putin, Mueller attempted to pollute the waters by releasing indictments against 12 Russian nationals. Yes, they live in Russia and will never set foot in an American courtroom. The Russians are not coming, and the move unmasked Robert Mueller.

Special Counsel Mueller is running a modern-day political witch hunt. His goal is to bring down a rightfully elected president, and he’s willing to hold his nose and pretend a liar, thief and adulterer is an honest man.

    • Actually he should be indicted and tried for treason for trying to take down a sitting president. He is a fuc…g scumbag

  1. Facebook DID NOT allow me to share this. There is more than one way to skin a cat. I copied and pasted the article to my page.

  2. I have a greater problem with Rosenstein than I do with Mueller. He knew, or should have known, that some of the FISA warrant applications he signed off on were false. After all, the FBI admitted long ago that the Dossier used to obtain the warrants was false. Mueller was allegedly under Rosenstein’s control. He should have drawn Mueller up short as soon as Mueller announced his team, including an employee of the Clinton Foundation. I believe Rosenstein, Mueller, and probably Sessions will be gone after the midterms.

  3. I think that everyone except the American taxpayer is liable to pay for this ridiculous, witich hunt brought on by Obama and Hillary Clinton and all the cabinet of Obama. They should all have to pay for this false waste of money not the taxpayer! We did not ask for this continuous game it’s all on them!!! They should all have to foot the bill they made it all up so they pay!!!!

  4. Everyone should realize now that as soon as Muller concludes all hell will break loose. The true criminals will be indited and the truth will be revealed. This is the reason the Muller “hunt” is taking so long. However, trying to run-out the clock is not going to work. The American people have awakened to the corruption and evil perpetrated buy the previous administration. Thank you president Trump.

  5. What’s Mueller’s take out of the + or – 20 million. He and Comy have already collected millions by their activity in Government and private companies.

  6. I now believe the time has finally come to put the investigators under the same pressure they so sorely used against our Great President, Mr. Donald J. Trump. This time people will finally go to JAIL for the lies they tried to use to destroy the country and the President.

  7. Mueller is a disgrace to law and order. Hillary’s puppet. Money man for uranium deal. Should be hung for treason or sedition. Democrat party should be disbanded for crimes against the government. Hollywood should be shut down. All perverts and child abusers.

  8. Muller should be put in prison for his dirty deeds. Muller was n n he urainum deal with Hillary and the Russians and
    many others in on it. Too prison Muller should go, he is a crook and the people know it. LOCK HIM UP and Hillary, along with the rest of the CROOKS.

    • Keep in mind Mueller is not an honest or honorable man. He put 4 innocent men in prison for life knowing they were innocent. His goal is to take down Trump by any means including illegal.

  9. Mueller doesn’t actually appear to be investigating Russian interference or even attempts to influence. He is certainly spending a lot of time on non related matters. He has not shown any proof of Trump collusion. And he has not bothered to investigate others(especially democrats) who may have been involved with Russian influence peddling. There is no proof or anything to suggest the Russians had any affect on the outcome of the election. And the documentation that provided the grounds for the investigation is a fraud. Congress needs to put an end to this farce!

  10. With ALL the PROOF MUELLER is Biased and not following the rules set forth for him and the Meddling investigation how is he able to keep using tax payer money and gov resources to continue with out someone having him arrested or investigated ?? who is backing him and what hold do they have on who ??

  11. I have a question that I would like to pose to the American public and citizen. With all of the people that have gone missing and those that are now dead, how many more bodies would turn up dead if people were to testify against Robert Mueller? I consider myself an educated person, but I really do not think that I could count that high. When all is said and done, Hillary Clinton and the entire Clinton crime syndicate will get off scot-free as will all of the other corrupt criminals that have tried to destroy our great country. And if this does come to pass, I foresee the American Patriot taking up a massive amount of arms taking the fight directly to the political elite and their cohorts. While President Trump is trying his best to restore our great nation we are still in dire straights because of another political party and even members of Trumps own party that want to see our great nation fall into the hands of our enemies. So to you my fellow Americans I say this. Get armed, get loaded, get locked and get ready because we ain’t seen nothing yet. I have changed my mind about another civil war in our country. It will not be a civil war, but it will be a war that will wind up killing all American Patriots and citizens that have fought long and hard for this country, me being one of the veterans that swore to protect this country from enemies foreign and domestic. I will most certainly perform my duties for my country. The question is will YOU!!! The Rooster Has Crowed!!!

    • I’ll be standing right next to you my fellow veteran. I took the same oath as you, I feel the same way you do and I predict the same things you do. I am already armed. To what extent is my business, but trust me I won’t be lacking. I believe that the way things are going we will have those socialists and others of the same ilk provoking a conflict. A conflict so outrageous that there will be no other alternative but to fight back in order to save our republic. If we drain the swamp, reinvent the education system and get the message out loud and clear that socialism does not work; we might have a chance at avoiding this civil / uncivil war. God bless us, our President, and our republic.

  12. Yes, unfortunately, this is what our governmental legal system has been reduced to. To my knowledge, there has never been so many documents released from a government agency with the volume of redacted information as what has been produced in this investigation. Redaction of such documents was allowed for the secrecy and protection of officials with regards to national security and not digging up dirt on a political candidate. Most if not all of the individuals involved in the dossier were not even government agency employees, they were independent or free lance contractors. Consider that Nixon erased 18 minutes of recorded White House correspondence and now the FBI has produced thousands of documents with virtually nothing on them……corruption has come a long way. But you have to remember that all government agencies had 8 years of practice knowing full well that there would be no consequences for it. Every business leader will say that the CEO sets the environment for organizational behavior…………..Obama’s legacy

  13. How can the guy who wrote a memo to President Trump calling for Comey to be fired have the ability to call for a special investigation into Comey’s firing and Russian collusion? Then how can a guy who interviewed with Trump for the FBI position and had bad business dealings with Trump be in charge of a special investigation into President Trump? The whole thing stinks so bad it’s disgusting. This special investigation was started illegally and should be shut down. We also really should have a special investigation into the whole matter. This involves the Mueller investigational team, Rosenstein, McCabe, Strzok, Page, Ohr, Comey, Yates, Lynch, Kerry, Obama and many others I am sure. their motto is: If you can’t win an election impeach the winner by all means necessary.

  14. I have seen where, if found guilty, Manafort could go to jail for 100 years!! But IMO, unless they managed to create a jury of 12 lying liberals, who we all know have their own little corrupt agenda, there is no way on God’s green earth they will ever find him guilty. People are not stupid and it is more than obvious what’s going on–even the Judge finds this entire rodeo completely reprehensible–enough to even comment on it publicly.

    And Mueller should have to reimburse the taxpayer for every single dime he and his “team” has been paid for this farce of an investigation. Following which HE should be sentenced to 100 years in prison; there is nothing more serious than what he has attempted to do to our country and citizens–along with the rest of that corrupt mob.

  15. I haven’t been able to post anything from conservative zone on facebook for sometime. They say it appears to be spam. I don’t know about you, but I am convinced this site is targeted because it’s conservative.

  16. I am a Canadian. and in all my 88years on this earth I have never seen or heard of a more corrupt government as the US democrat party and all their crime partners.( Including Obama). Obama knew what was going on and he was part of it.
    If all these criminals are not punished for their crimes,it would be the greatest injustice of all time. God bless America and president Trump.

  17. For all of those “empty heads full of mush” that President Trump succinctly identified as “Drain the Swamp” I remind one and all; if one does not know our history then one will not know where they are going”. I will gladly give one and all the value of history as recorded by two of our founding presidents. President (1)George Washington warning to future generations concerning danger posed by ineligible candidates reaching the office of Command In Chief. {Against the insidious wiles of foreign influence, [Constitutional ineligible Obama; shall be a natural born citizen] ; I conjure you to believe me fellow-citizens the jealousy of a free people ought to be constantly awake, since history and experience prove that foreign influence is one of the most baneful foes of Republican government. } Washington “Few men have virtue to withstand the highest bidder”; “Arbitrary power is most easily established on the ruins of liberty abused to licentiousness”.(2) President Thomas Jefferson “The republican is the only form if government which is not eternally at open or secret war with the rights of mankind”; “The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time, with the blood of patriots and tyrants. It is their natural manure.” Seriously America! These profound words lend real time “reality” as to the state of our state run amok by the past 40/60 years of corrupt “Drain the Swamp” minions whose by word is “to the Victor go the Spoils! (Translation/ tax payers hard earned money). lee1233

  18. Well, when over half those involved with the Trump – Russia collusion Mueller investigation, who gave money to Hillary’s 2016 Presidential campaign, gave the allotted amount by law. They had donated large sums to the Clinton Foundation and there are still people claiming there’s no bias. Seriously? If I keep digging maybe, I’ll find Mueller’s name popping up under both.
