Transparent fishing attempt to take out Trump
(INTELLIHUB) — FBI agents working for deep state operative Robert Mueller raided the home of former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort late last month, seizing materials they claim are related to the investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 election.
“The raid, which occurred without warning on July 26, signaled an aggressive new approach by special counsel Robert S. Mueller III and his team in dealing with a key figure in the Russia inquiry. Manafort has been under increasing pressure as the Mueller team looked into his personal finances and his professional career as a highly paid foreign political consultant,” reported The Washington Post.
“Using a search warrant, agents appeared the day Manafort was scheduled to testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee and a day after he met voluntarily with Senate Intelligence Committee staff members.”
Despite claims throughout the mainstream media that the raid is connected to the Russian-Trump investigation, their own reports conclusively show that the targeting of Manafort has absolutely nothing to do with anything Trump may or may not have done wrong but is in reality about fishing through Manafort’s past until they find wrongdoing which would then allow Mueller and his team to flip him and eventually force him to lie about Trump and or his associates.
Think about this for a second. Mueller was hired to look into supposed Russian election interference (a narrative that was literally created by Muellers’ friends in the deep state and media) but is now focusing on an easy target that more than likely has broken some sort of law in his long years of dealing with foreign countries. (and LONG BEFORE he worked for Trump)
The Washington Post report openly admits this stunning fact.
Mueller has increased legal pressure on Manafort, consolidating under his authority unrelated investigations of various aspects of Manafort’s professional and personal life.
Manafort’s allies fear that Mueller hopes to build a case against Manafort unrelated to the 2016 campaign, in hopes that he would provide information against others in Trump’s inner circle in exchange for lessening his legal exposure.
In their own report, The New York Times also admitted that at this point the investigation isn’t even focusing on Manafort’s short lived run with the Trump campaign.
Until now, it was only known that Mr. Manafort was under investigation for his business dealings with his son-in-law, his role in the 2016 meeting between Trump campaign officials and the Russians and whether his work for the Ukranian government violated the Foreign Agents Registration Act.
The government rarely prosecutes cases related to the Foreign Agents Registration Act, and Mr. Manafort’s consulting firm retroactively filed forms with the Justice Department last month to be in compliance with the act.
But the search warrant for the tax and foreign banking records suggests that investigators are looking at criminal charges related to the federal Bank Secrecy Act, which requires Americans to report their foreign banking accounts.
So there you have it. One giant fishing expedition with the hopes of catching Manafort in a crime committed years ago which would then allow Mueller to flip him against the president.
Keep in mind, Mueller himself is a close personal friend of fired FBI director James Comey and has a long history of working with and helping the Clinton family.
First the deep state, with help from the mainstream media, invents a fake narrative and then they insert their own guy to do the investigation.
Transparent corruption at its finest.
