Don Jr. & Ivanka At Top Of Mueller’s List For Conspiracy Charges: Report

When he made his plea deal with Special Counsel Robert Mueller on Thursday and admitted that he had made contacts with Russia for Donald Trump during the 2016 election, Michael Cohen didn’t just place his former boss in legal and political jeopardy, he also put the president’s children, Don Jr. and Ivanka, under the microscope.

Yahoo News reports that the special counsel has now placed Don Jr. and Ivanka at the top of the list as he begins to expand his focus in the Russia probe:

“Multiple sources have confirmed to Yahoo News that the president’s elder daughter, Ivanka, who is now a top White House adviser, and his eldest son, Don Jr., were also working to make Trump Tower Moscow a reality. The sources said those efforts were independent of Cohen’s work on the project. One of the sources said Ivanka was also involved in Cohen’s efforts. And a separate source familiar with the investigation told Yahoo News that Mueller has asked questions about Ivanka and Don Jr.’s work on Trump Tower Moscow.”

Court papers filed in Manhattan Thursday included these facts about the Trump Tower Moscow project that Cohen spearheaded:

  • “One of the things Cohen lied about was that he ‘briefed family members’ of Trump’s who worked at the Trump Organization about the proposed Moscow skyscraper.”
  • Before she joined the White House as an adviser to her father, Ivanka was an executive at the company. Don Jr. and Trump’s middle son, Eric, are running the Trump Organization while their father is in office.

But the plan to build that elusive Moscow high-rise didn’t just involve Cohen and then-candidate Trump:

“A source familiar with the Trump Organization confirmed to Yahoo News that Ivanka and Don Jr. engaged in separate efforts to build a Trump Tower in Moscow.”

And that means that Don Jr. and Ivanka are also looking at some of the same charges that legal experts have long suggested will be in the coming indictments from Mueller. Those charges include, according to the New York Times:

  • Conspiracy against the United States
  • Election interference
  • Election fraud

If and when those indictments are handed down, the only question that remains will be this one: How quickly will President Trump throw his own flesh and blood under the bus to save his fat ass?

Here’s How Robert Mueller Played Donald Trump Like A Fiddle

Just last week, Donald Trump submitted his written answers to questions from the office of Special Counsel Robert Mueller, and at the time the president bragged the queries were incredibly easy to complete.

But when it was announced that Trump’s former attorney and fixer, Michael Cohen, had pleaded guilty and would now testify that he had numerous contacts with Russia in the months leading up the 2016 election on Trump’s behalf, many in the legal community noted that Mueller had just outfoxed Trump in a major way.

How exactly, you ask, did Trump get played? Well, think about the timing of today’s plea agreement between Cohen and the special counsel. As CNN legal analyst Ross Garber commented on Twitter:

Former DOJ official and MSNBC security analyst Matthew Miller concurred with Garber, adding:

Former Obama White House ethics attorney Norm Eisen also weighed in on how Mueller had just done a number on Trump:

And Neil Katyal, who served as solicitor general in the Obama administration, pointed out that Trump’s name was all over the plea agreement filed in court Thursday:

Also, Mueller waited until the day he knew Trump would be leaving for the G-20 summit in Buenos Aires to make his big reveal in a Manhattan courtroom with Cohen. Cohen stood and calmly explained to the judge exactly what he had lied about in testimony he gave to the Senate Intelligence Committee earlier this year. And he also made clear that Trump had personally instructed him to make numerous trips to Moscow in an attempt to get approval for a Trump Tower to be built in Russia.

All of this suggests that not only does Mueller have the goods on Donald Trump, but he’s preparing to move on the Trump Organization and members of the Trump family (Don Jr., Ivanka, Eric) who also have key positions within the Trump business structure.

Not only did Robert Mueller manage to play Trump and Trump’s attorneys like a damn fiddle, he also let the world know that he has all the evidence he needs to destroy this illegitimate president.

Lock all of the traitors up, Mr. Mueller!

Former Deputy U.S. Attorney: Mueller Has Phone Records Proving Trump Conspired With Russia

Not long before that infamous June 2016 meeting at Trump Tower between Donald Trump Jr, Jared Kushner, Paul Manafort and several Russian operatives, Don Jr. received a phone call from a blocked number. It’s long been suspected the call was from Donald Trump himself, checking to get an update on the upcoming meeting at Trump Tower, meaning that the father knew exactly why his son was setting up such an appointment.

That meeting and preceding phone call, according to former Deputy U.S. Attorney Daniel Goldman, who worked in the Southern District of New York, are all the proof Special Counsel Robert Mueller needs to prove that President Trump was engaged in a conspiracy with Russia.

During a recent appearance on MSNBC, Goldman commented:

“I bet Bob Mueller already knows because you can get the phone records from both sides. Well, he at least knows whether it’s the president or not, because you can get the number on Trump’s side, the president’s side, and you can see if there’s the call that matches up, and those phone records would have been subpoenaed early on in the investigation.”

If Don Jr. did indeed speak with his father about meeting with Russians at Trump Tower, the crimes the two can be charged with range from perjury to something much more serious, Goldman noted:

“One, Don Jr. lied to Congress, so there’s perjury right there, and, two, is that really for the first time it would place the president right in the middle of the ongoing collusion. We know certainly he learned about it after, at some point, but there has been no reporting that I’m aware of that he was aware of these efforts by — to get information from Russia that would be valuable to the campaign.”

The irony that something as simple as phone records could be what winds up bringing down Trump and members of his family is almost too perfect. They thought no one would be able to trace their actions, but they weren’t counting on a man as thorough and dogged as Robert Mueller.

Hey, Donald, the phone is ringing. It’s your attorney calling to tell you how very screwed you are.

BUSTED! Mueller Now Has Proof Donald Trump Conspired With WikiLeaks

The story broke with the suddenness of a bolt of lightning from a clear blue sky.

Tuesday morning, The Guardian reported that former Trump 2016 campaign chairman met with WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange inside the Ecuadorian embassy in London on multiple occasions, including while he was working for the Trump campaign:

“A well-placed source has told the Guardian that Manafort went to see Assange around March 2016. Months later WikiLeaks released a stash of Democratic emails stolen by Russian intelligence officers.”

Just hours earlier, on Monday evening, it was revealed that Manafort had been caught lying to Special Counsel Robert Mueller and was on the verge of being sentenced to anywhere from 14 to 17 years in federal prison.

Clearly, these two reports are connected. Manafort likely said he had never met with Assange and Mueller found out he had done so at least three times. That invalidated Manafort’s plea deal and placed the special counsel inside the Oval Office. How? Take a look:

If Manafort was meeting with Assange shortly before WikiLeaks began releasing the DNC emails and near the same time Trump was calling for Russia to find Hillary Clinton’s emails, then a line can be drawn which tracks the conspiracy from Manafort to Assange to Trump, and then back again. That’s the very definition of the “collusion,” which Trump swears never took place.

Trump and the White House will no doubt try to say that if Manafort met with Assange in London, they had no idea such a thing was taking place. But who actually believes the chairman of Trump’s campaign didn’t talk the whole plan over with the candidate both prior to and after the meetings?

Oh, and if indeed Manafort did meet with Assange in the Ecuadorian embassy, there’s a high likelihood that American intelligence has proof the meeting took place. They may even have recordings of that supposedly secret rendezvous.

Manafort, Assange, Trump. And let’s not forget Russia, which has served has a sponsor and protector of Assange over the years. The conspiracy is now complete: Trump and Russia working together to assure Trump won the election.

Robert Mueller’s case against Trump is now a slam dunk. He has all the evidence he needs.

Robert Mueller’s ‘American’ Indictments Are Coming – Here’s Who’ll Be On Them

In a desperate attempt to put a positive spin on the 12 indictments handed down in mid-July against members of the Russian intelligence service known as the GRU, the White House issued a statement which read:

“Today’s charges include no allegations of knowing involvement by anyone on the campaign and no allegations that the alleged hacking affected the election result. This is consistent with what we have been saying all along.”

While it’s true that those indictments didn’t include direct allegations against the Trump campaign, they did refer to a close Trump ally who has long been under the watchful eye of Special Counsel Robert Mueller: Roger Stone.

Former CIA Director Michael Hayden said shortly after the Russian indictments were announced that Mueller’s next batch of indictments will indeed contain the names of Americans. Hayden told CNN:

“The more this goes on, the more I believe we are going to see a widening circle here.

“I would not be surprised if this is not the last indictment we see that doesn’t mention an American.”

So who might be on the so-called “American” indictments? Look for these names:

Roger Stone: Stone has numerous connections to both Wikileaks and the Russian hacker Guccifer 2.0. Now that Mueller has indicted the Russian end of the leaks that helped doom Hillary Clinton’s campaign, Stone is the next logical step.

Jared Kushner: Jared was one of the architects of the Trump campaign’s online strategy, helping to plan what ads to purchase on Facebook and how to best use leaked information to the benefit of the 2016 Trump team. He has long been suspected of having financial ties to Russia, too.

Brad Parscale: Parscale was the digital media director for the 2016 Trump for president campaign. He is now the overall campaign manager for the Trump 2020 reelection effort. Parscale’s fingerprints are all over the Russian conspiracy, and you can expect him to be indicted.

Donald Trump Jr.: It all goes back to that infamous meeting at Trump Tower in June 2016. Trump, Kushner, and former campaign chairman Paul Manafort agreed to the meeting so they could obtain “dirt” on Clinton from Russian operatives. They later claimed the conclave was about adoption.

So there you have the four most likely traitors who will soon be appearing before a federal judge. There will likely be others, but Mueller will probably save the biggest fish of all — Donald Trump, Mike Pence, GOP members of Congress — for the very last.

No matter how you slice it, Mueller’s Russian indictments have placed him right outside the Oval Office. His next indictments will blow the windows out of the West Wing.
