DOJ Issues New Criminal Conspiracy Charges Against Capitol Insurrectionists

The wait is over for some of the people who participated in the January 6 storming of the U.S. Capitol which resulted in the deaths of five people, including a member of the Capitol Police Force.

CNN reports that the U.S. Department of Justice has begun handing down more criminal conspiracy charges against members of the group known as the Oath Keepers:

“The Justice Department has added four new defendants to the federal criminal conspiracy case against Oath Keepers who allegedly prepared for and took part in the US Capitol riot, according to a new indictment made public in DC District Court on Sunday.

“The newly named Oath Keeper defendants are Joseph Hackett, who went by ‘Ahab,’ Jason Dolan, who went by ‘Turmoil,’ and William Isaacs, all from Florida. A fourth new defendant’s name and alleged actions are still redacted.”

All of the Oath Keeper defendants are accused of taking part in a criminal conspiracy and entering the restricted Capitol grounds:

 “Isaacs, for instance, allegedly yelled, ‘The fight’s not over’ once the Oath Keepers group had gotten inside the building, and he waved rioters down the hallway toward the Senate, according to the indictment.”

Additionally, five of the individuals already named as defendants are also facing charges of allegedly deleting their social media and cell phone activity, which could lead to them being convicted of obstruction of justice and other federal felonies.

The new court filings also lay out disturbing new details about how the Oath Keepers illegally attempted to smuggle weapons into Washington, D.C. for the Jan. 6 event:

“Department of Justice prosecutors were describing in court filings what else they’ve learned about the group’s so-called Quick Reaction Force, an effort to allegedly bring guns to a Northern Virginia Comfort Inn as backup for the siege.

“Previously, prosecutors had described how the Oath Keepers gathered and stashed weapons at the Comfort Inn, and how defendant Thomas Caldwell of Virginia allegedly had floated an idea of ferrying weapons across the Potomac River to assist with the Capitol siege.”

Before federal prosecutors are finished, many of the Oath Keeper defendants could well be facing charges that would put them in federal prison for the remained of their lives, a fitting punishment for anyone who dares to try and overthrow the elected representatives of the nation as they were going about their official duty of certifying the 2020 presidential election results.

Ironically, the Oath Keepers love to portray themselves as being devoted to the principle of defending the Constitution “against all enemies, foreign and domestic.” But they’re nothing more than terrorist punks who deserve to rot behind bars.

Roger Stone Admits The Jig Is Up – Trump Is About To Be Indicted

Roger Stone — who can best be described as Donald Trump’s longtime friend, confidant, and ass weasel — is a man so filled with vile intent and dirty tricks (many of them both illegal and immoral) that he’s the perfect wingman for the equally dark and twisted failed, one-term president.

Yet despite Stone’s perverted devotion to Trump, even he can sense that Donald’s days of freedom are drawing to a close, and he’s saying exactly that in his own half-witted and unctuous manner, telling the equally disgusting Alex Jones, host of “InfoWars” that indictments are about to be handed down against Trump:

“I would be shocked if they did not come forward with a fabricated indictment for bank fraud or tax fraud against the former president [Donald Trump] by Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance Jr.”

That wasn’t all Stone had to say on the matter of Trump’s pending indictment in New York. He also began providing excuses and rationalizations for Trump’s lifetime crime spree:

“Let’s be very clear. In other words, as you said it earlier, you show the man, and I’ll show you the crime. They’re allowed to root through this man’s business record of forty years, in which he built a real estate empire second to none, combing for a crime, they have no evidence of a crime, they have no probable cause. It is disgraceful, but I do think it is going to happen.”

See how Stone tried to spin what he knows is about to happen? That way he can say he say he’s ahead of the curve while still being a loyal ass fly to Trump and staying on his good side, which is kind of the least thing he can do since he got a pardon from Donnie in the last days of the Trump administration.

But if you want to know what’s really taking place in Manhattan and what we can expect in the months ahead, consider what Trump’s former attorney, Michael Cohen told MSNBC recently, predicting that when Trump is finally charged, those charges will be far-reaching and devastating:

“But it wasn’t just the Trump Organization. It was Donald’s personal accounts. It was the kids’ business accounts, presidential inaugural committee, campaign. Any penny that had anything to do with Donald Trump went through Allen Weisselberg’s desk. I do believe that he has significant exposure, and I think his exposure is not one that you can just hide because the beautiful thing about numbers is numbers don’t lie.”

Donald Trump lies, but the numbers don’t. And the numbers are what will finally bring the former president before the bar of justice.

Former Watergate Prosecutor Reveals What Will ‘Wipe Out’ The Trump Organization

Even though he faces at least 10 civil lawsuits (E. Jean Carroll’s defamation lawsuit, Summer Zervos defamation suit, Mary Trump’s fraud lawsuit, etc.) a former White House prosecutor says it won’t be any of those actions that will leave the Trump Organization bankrupt.

Jill Wine-Banks appeared on MSNBC and noted that while any of the 10 civil suits could result in multi-million dollar settlements, they won’t be what eventually bankrupts Trump and his company:

“His popularity has diminished greatly. His properties are of less value now. Many buildings are taking the name Trump off of them because it is a deterrent to people, either playing golf at his golf courses or a deterrent to people buying condos in his buildings. So, it will hurt his bottom line both in terms of penalties — think about how many millions he may owe the federal government on the long-festering audit that he said was the reason he couldn’t turn over his financial records. Think about the bank loans that we know are coming due, and his income has gone down as best everybody can tell from all the reporting.”

Those bank loans, Wine-banks continued, are an enormous threat to Trump’s financial bottom line:

“So, where is he going to get the money to pay back those loans, and now a lot of banks will simply not lend to him anymore. So, how is he going to change the source of income to pay back the original lender with new lenders? So, it could totally wipe out the Trump Organization. There are some questions about some fraud in real estate and in defrauding people who bought condos. All of that mounts up, and eventually, the money runs out. So, he should be worried not just about whether he will be charged with a crime and whether a jury will convict him, but with being bankrupted.”

One of those loans is from Deutsche Bank, and it totals $340 million. The German bank has cut its ties to Trump and has also hinted it will seize the former president’s assets if he cannot come up with the millions he owes.

Business is way down at Trump properties, thanks in part to COVID fears and because the Trump name is now poison due to his failures as president.

The Trump Organization is hanging by a thread financially. And in the next few months we could see it collapse completely.

Trump Org. Insider: Donald Is About To Throw His Kids Under The Bus To Save Himself

What do you suppose Donald Trump’s first thoughts were when he found out that a new grand jury had been empaneled in Manhattan as the investigation into him and the Trump Organization escalates?

Safe to say he was angry, even enraged. After all, this is a man who believes he’s above the law.

After the anger came fear, a cold chill up his spine and neck as images flashed into his brain of him being handcuffed and marched off to a prison cell somewhere in New York.

And then, after the anger, beyond the fear, was likely this thought: Who can I sacrifice to save myself? Who is expendable?

According to Barbara Res, the former Executive Vice President of the Trump Organization, everyone is expendable to Donald Trump, including his own children.

Res was a guest on MSNBC Saturday, telling host Alex Witt what she believes is going on inside Trump’s head right now:

“Well, first of all, I think he’s going berserk

“I think he’s so angry. All the things that he put in place, the things he put in place to get elected the first time and almost get elected the second time, both were unreasonably based, and all the other things, the attorney general and the kinds of — the judges and all the things that he thought he had working for him all of a sudden are not there anymore. it’s — he can’t avoid this. This happened and this is something he thought he could avoid.”

Berserk. What an apt description of the deeply unstable failed, one-term former president, and it led Res to note that Trump will do whatever it takes to save his own hide:

“And I’m sure he’s looking for people to blame. He’s screaming at people, everybody, he’s probably blaming [Allen] Weisselberg, he’s blaming his sons, his daughter, you know, anyone that’s available to him. And he will, I think, throw any one of them under the bus to protect himself.”

Sound farfetched? Do you find it hard to believe Donald would feed his beloved Ivanka to the wolves? It’s textbook behavior for someone with narcissistic personality disorder, which the former president clearly suffers from.

At this very moment, Donald Trump is scheming and looking for an exit. It doesn’t matter who he has to destroy in order to protect himself, even his own flesh and blood.

Of course, Donnie should keep something in mind: His family may have already turned on him and sold him out to protect themselves. Betrayal, after all, is a two-way street.

Corruption Crime Donald Trump

Manhattan DA May Also File State Racketeering Charges Against The Trump Organization

Now that Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance Jr. has indicted the Trump Organization and Chief Financial Officer Allen Weisselberg, it’s clearer than ever that the justice system is starting to catch up with Donald Trump and those associated with him.

And now there’s a new twist to the case against Trump, with legal experts saying that Vance’s office may be planning to file state racketeering charges against the Trump Organization, which would give them more leverage over potential witnesses and also lead to greater penalties for those who are convicted, Politico reports:

“Manhattan District Attorney Cy Vance could be considering a criminal charge that former President Donald Trump’s business empire was a corrupt enterprise under a New York law resembling the federal racketeering statute known as RICO, former prosecutors and defense attorneys said.

New York’s enterprise corruption statute — which carries the potential for severe penalties — can be applied to money-making businesses alleged to have repeatedly engaged in criminal activity as a way to boost their bottom line.”

New York’s organized corruption statute, which is often referred to as “little RICO,” can be used if there are as few as three crimes involving a business located in the Empire State and carries a prison term of up to 25 years, which would be a death sentence for Donald Trump, who turns 75 next month.

Manhattan defense attorney Robert Anello said he’s certain Vance is considering bringing charges under the New York RICO law:

“I’m sure they’re thinking about that. No self-respecting state white-collar prosecutor would forgo considering the enterprise corruption charge.”

Anello’s comments were echoed by Michael Shapiro, who used to prosecute corruption cases in New York:

“It’s a very serious crime. Certainly, there are plenty of things an organization or business could do to run afoul of enterprise corruption, if they’re all done with the purpose of enhancing the revenue of the enterprise illegally. … It’s an umbrella everything else fits under.”

The crimes the former president’s company is suspected of having committed include submitting inflated real estate valuations to banks and insurance companies while reporting those same properties as undervalued when it came time to pay taxes. There have also been rumors that Trump may have used his corporation to launder ill-gotten funds from organized crime outfits in the United States and Russia.

Also under investigation by the Manhattan DA’s office are the hush money payments made during the 2016 campaign to two women who had sexual encounters with Trump and were paid in order to remain silent. Those payoffs, according to legal experts, may well violate New York laws against making false statements as part of a company’s business records.

As for the newly formed grand jury, attorneys say it is almost certain to go along with whatever charges Vance is seeking against Trump and his company, with Shapiro noting:

“The prosecutors work together with the grand jury, day to day. … The natural thing that happens is everyone gets the idea we’re all on the same team. Ultimately, the grand jury will do what the prosecutors asks them to do. … If at the end of a number of months, this grand jury is asked to bring charges against Trump and others, they’ll do it — 999 times out of 1,000 they do it.”

In other words, the likelihood that Trump and others in his orbit are going to be indicted is all but certain.
