Evidently, Trump Derangement Syndrome is incurable.
Newsmax.com reports that
Andrew Weissmann, a senior prosecutor on special counsel’s Robert Mueller team – President Donald Trump derided him as one of the “13 Angry Democrats” – wants the president prosecuted once he leaves office.
“I believe the next attorney general should investigate Mr. Trump and, if warranted, prosecute him for potential federal crimes,” Weissmann wrote in an op-ed for The New York Times.
Weissmann did admit pursuing a former U.S. president would be divisive, be seen as “merely exacting revenge,” and suck up “the administration’s energy.”
Still, the Mueller investigation’s top charge would be obstruction of justice, something Weissmann claimed, without verification, is a “view is widely shared.”
“Mr. Trump’s criminal exposure is clear,” he wrote, adding “we amassed ample evidence to support a charge that Mr. Trump obstructed justice.”
“Mr. Trump can’t point to what the special counsel investigation did not find (e.g., ‘collusion’) when he obstructed that very investigation,” Weissman claimed.
“In short, being president should mean you are more accountable, not less, to the rule of law,” he concluded.
Let’s find out a little bit more about Mr. Weissman, shall we?
Per Heavy.com from October of 2017
1. Weissmann Served as the FBI’s General Counsel Under Robert Mueller – Before his tenure at the FBI, Weissmann was a partner at Jenner & Block in New York for five years.
2. Weissmann Led the Enron Task Force but Not Without Controversy – Time after time, courts have reversed Weissmann’s most touted ‘victories’ for his tactics. This is hardly the stuff of a hero in the law. Weissmann, as deputy and later director of the Enron Task Force, destroyed the venerable accounting firm of Arthur Andersen LLP and its 85,000 jobs worldwide — only to be reversed several years later by a unanimous Supreme Court.
3. Weissmann Donated Money to President Barack Obama – Weissmann is a Barack Obama and Democratic campaign donor, according to federal records. “Weissmann, who led the Enron investigation, previously gave $2,300 to Obama’s first presidential campaign in 2008 and $2,000 to the Democratic National Committee in 2006, the same year Democrats won control of Congress.
4. Weissmann Attended Princeton & Columbia Universities & Prosecuted Mafia Crime Families – According to the DOJ press release, Weissmann “began his career with the Department of Justice in 1991 at the U.S. Attorney’s Office in the Eastern District of New York, where he served in various leadership positions, including as chief of the Criminal Division. According to Mother Jones, one of the people Weissmann prosecuted had ties to Trump. “As a prosecutor in the Eastern District, Weissmann signed a 1998 cooperation agreement between the US government and Felix Sater, a violent felon and securities trader who had pleaded guilty to financial crimes. Sater went on to become a confidential informant for the FBI and a Trump business partner,” the magazine noted.
5. Some Conservatives Have Noted That Weissmann Was in a Position of Power During the Clinton Uranium Controversy – Some conservatives contend that Mueller has a conflict of interest because they argue the FBI, under his stewardship, should have more thoroughly investigated Bill and Hillary Clinton over a uranium deal known as Uranium One. National Review notes that Andrew Weissmann ran Obama DOJ’s Fraud Section during this time frame.
While a part of Obama’s DOJ, Weissmann was briefed in August 2016 on the opposition research behind the anti-Trump dossier – underscoring how early and widely the Democrat-funded research was shared among senior FBI and Justice Department officials.
So, boys and girls, what we have here is a Former member of President Barack Hussein Obama’s Department of Justice, the real “tip of the spear” of the costly nothingburger known as the Russia Probe, accusing Donald J. Trump of acting “outside of the law as President of the United States of America.
Let’s face it, gentle readers.
Former President Barack Hussein Obama knew about the Flynn Wire-tapping, Spygate, the Steele Dossier, and everything else that the Democrats and their operatives in the Deep State, like Andrew Weissmann, orchestrated to attempt to get rid of President Donald J. Trump.
It’s his modus operandi.
In 2004, Illinois State Senator Barack Hussein Obama (mm mmm mmmm) decided to run for The United States Senate.
In order to have a successful Senatorial campaign, “Scooter” had to secure tremendous financial backing and be the recipient of astute political mentoring. No problem.
It is now very well-known that George Soros, evil genius, major Democratic Party donor and anti-Israel crusader, has been a generous contributor to Barack Obama. However, not too many people know that a loophole in McCain-Feingold allowed Soros and his family members to be extremely generous in their support of Obama’s 2004 Senatorial campaign.
Obama had to run against Blair Hull in the primary and then Jack Ryan in the general (both multi-millionaires). Obama received huge donations from individuals, to so-called “millionaires exception.” Usually, individuals are limited to giving $2300 to candidates in federal elections, but if the candidates are running against millionaires, these limits do not apply and candidates are allowed to receive up to $12,000 from a single individual. Soros and his family gave Barack Obama $60,000. This does not count the money that Soros was funneled to so-called 527 groups (Moveon.org, for example) that have also been politically active; nor does it include money that Soros raised from tapping a network of friends, business associates, and employees.
Besides garnering unlimited campaign funds, as the campaigns entered their closing rounds, the news ”happened to be” leaked to media outlets that both Hull and Ryan had “personal scandals” in their past. The timely release of this news wiped out both of their campaigns, leading to an easy victory for Obama in the primary and then in the general election.
The New York Times Magazine revealed that David Axelrod, Obama’s chief political and media adviser, may well have been behind the leak of the story that doomed the Hull candidacy as the primary reached its home stretch.
As he has shown over the years, Axelrod was right at home operating in this gray area, part idealist, part hired muscle. One can not bring up Axelrod’s name in certain circles in Chicago without the matter of the Blair Hull divorce papers coming up. Approaching the 2004 Senate primary, it was clear that it was a two-man race: the millionaire liberal, Hull, leading in the polls, and Obama, who was the figurehead of an impressive grass-roots campaign. One month before the vote, The Chicago Tribune “just happened” to reveal, at the end of a long profile of Hull, that during a divorce proceeding, Hull’s second wife filed for an order of protection. This revelation proceeded to erupt into a full-fledged scandal. This scandal destroyed Hull’s campaign and handed Obama an easy primary victory.
The Tribune reporter who wrote the story later admitted in print that the Obama camp had “worked aggressively behind the scenes” to push the story. However, a lot of folks in Chicago believe that Axelrod leaked the initial story. They will tell you that before signing on with Obama, Axelrod interviewed with Hull. They also point out that Obama’s TV ad campaign just happened to start at almost the same time. Axelrod swears up and down that “we had nothing to do with it” and that the campaign’s television ad schedule was in the works for a long time.
An aura grows up around you, and people assume everything emanates from you.
Especially, when it is obvious that everything did.
For Andrew Weissmann, a henchman of the most duplicitous and corrupt President in United States History, to accuse President Trump of having a “criminal exposure” not only strains credulity…it snaps it in half.
Irony is embarrassed.
Until He Comes,
