Louise Mensch Sources: Mueller Has ‘Dozens’ of Sealed Indictments
Just another #MuellerMonday! Going to be a fun day! Impeachment coming some day-soon as we get a Democratic Congress.
Ok, so the suspense couldn’t be thicker. Yesterday we already went through various suspects.
It could be Manafort-or someone close to him. Flynn-or someone close to him. There’s a school of thought that it will be Flynn’s son in order to get him to flip. Some have suggested Carter Page.
Roger Stone went off on a major Twitter rant after the news broke which led to him being suspended again-and possibly banned.
I haven’t seen it mentioned much but don’t forget Michael Cohen.
Speaking of Cohen there’s an old Nursery Rhyme that we can update for him:
Mary had a little lamb whose fleece was white as snow;
and everywhere Michael Cohen went
Felix Sater was sure to go.
If you look at all Cohen’s movements, whenever his name has come up for trouble Sater has been there with him. It was true with the plan to get a Trump Tower in Moscow during the 2016 election it was true of the ‘Ukrainian peace plan’-more like a ‘Ukrainian giveaway to Russia plan.’
But then Sater and Cohen go way back to when the two thugs were teenagers in Long Island in the early 1980s.
With talk of sealed indictments I thought this was a good time to revisit-yes, Louise Mensch. She’s certainly a controversial figure. Many have been convinced that she’s the devil incarnate.
My own preference it to keep an open mind about her as many of her previous predictions have become true. At least a lot of the acrimony she incites is the MSM not approving of people listening to journalists outside their orbit. It’s a professional jealousy thing, a turf thing.
I also would agree that she hasn’t always helped herself by the way she’s responded to some criticism. I do think that some have become unhinged in opposing her-to the extent that they would tweet about nothing but Louise Mensch all day every day. Even if you think she’s a fraud, spending that much time on her seems like a bad use of time.
But I for one have no interest in personalities. What matters is what advances our knowledge of Trump Russia. And in this regard, Mensch has been out in front many times.
To point out just a few instances-hardly an exhaustive list:
1. She had reported on a FISA warrant on November 8, 2016.
2. She had warned about Jeff Sessions’ Russia connections before his confirmation hearings in early February of this year.
3. She had reported on how Trump’s kids were a focus of the investigation.
At the time this was treated as absurd. Later, with the reports about Donald Jr’s Russia meeting, and Ivanaka’s own problems, MSM pundits dismissed it as something obvious to everyone,
Sort of reminds you of what Keynes said about reaction to his General Theory among economists.
First they laugh at you. Then they claim you’ve said nothing new.
Mensch was certainly laughed at for talking about sealed indictments many months ago.
To be sure, she and Claude Taylor stated that both had their own sources telling them there’s a sealed indictment against Trump. At this point we don’t know about that either way. That’s why I find her reporting valuable. You can check it against what we later learn.
In any case, in light of the news about a coming sealed indictment, Mensch has a new piece up:
“Exclusive: Multiple sources with links to the justice and intelligence communities report that Special Counsel Mueller has dozens of sealed indictments against suspects in the Trump Russia scandal. There are now several sealed indictments against Donald Trump personally. This site exclusively reported the first indictment returned against Trump in May, a RICO charge involving Felix Sater, Bayrock, the Trump Organization, and agents of the Russian state.”
“CNN broke the news that Robert Mueller would be revealing the first charge, or charges, in the Trump Russia investigation in the last week of October. Their reporting did not specify which suspects would be charged first.”
“This article will attempt to summarize some of our reporting on evidence the Special Counsel has before him, and on existing sealed indictments. In a separate story, I will summarize which of my reports have been confirmed by the mainstream media.”
I applaud her doing that. If the MSM has its way, they’ll just pretend that she never said anything new. And when you look into her archives, Mensch reported many things her sources told her that were laughed off at the time and later became common knowledge.
“Donald Trump – indicted on RICO over the Felix Sater and Bayrock case, and on other charges which sources have requested we do not report.”
“Mike Flynn – indicted for failing to register under FARA, the Foreign Agents’ Registration Act, as an agent of Turkey whilst National Security Advisor.”
“While we are able to report that Special Counsel Mueller is holding dozens of sealed indictments, many of which were returned while James Comey was Director of the FBI, we cannot report with specificity who is indicted on what charge other than the two above, because sources were not specific. We have reported on the investigations suspects are facing, and these are listed below.”
“Sources did not specify who was to be indicted under which offense. However, multiple sources did confirm that some categories of offense considered included, variously; espionage, a capital crime; obstruction of justice and conspiracy to obstruct justice; violations of the Logan Act; lying to the FBI; failure to register under FARA; and RICO, not only in the matter of the Trump Organization, but also for the GOP as a body, taking Ambassador Kislyak’s money at the GOP convention, where both Reince Priebus and Paul Ryan were intercepted on Kislyak’s hot-miked phone.”
The GOP as a body. Indeed, they are the party of treason.
“The Republican Party as a body is under investigation for RICO for accepting Russian money. The GOP itself is being considered to be a corrupt organization under the RICO statutes. Sources were firm that the GOP, as it is presently known, may no longer exist after this investigation and a new party of the right may have to form. Sources did not say if charges or indictments had been returned against the party however.”
Again, I understand Mensch is not the cup of tea for everybody. Some seem to prefer to sit back and let the MSM spoon feed them on what’s news and what’s not.
And, I agree, in terms of accuracy, the MSM is very reliable. It’s rare that they get anything that they do report false.
The worry with them is not sins of commission-reporting things that prove false-but of omission-failing to report other things which are also true.
Despite the claim by Trump apologists that the MSM is so unfair to Fuhrer Trump, the reality is that they have time and again treated him with kid gloves.
1. They even now are saying little about the subpoena in a federal court for records of all charges of sexual misconduct against Donald Trump.
With all the saturation reporting on Harvey Weinstein, Trump continues to get a pass.
During the election there was a woman who claimed Trump raped her as a 13 year old. The MSM refused to even mention the story. Now, it’s true that this woman refused to speak publicly and indentify herself.
The last week before the election there were reports she would finally give a press conference. At the last moment she backed out-probably due to fair of Trump supporters and Trump’s lawyers.
Do you believe if this were Bill Clinton the MSM would have held this story back? Note as well, that Bill being President never stopped them from discussing Paula Jones and Monica Lewinsky all day.
2. The MSM was totally dark on the Steele Dossier prior to the election. They said very little on Russia.
It was all ‘But what about your emails. Secretary Clinton?’
Point is that the MSM doesn’t lie through getting its facts wrong but by omitting certain, pertinent facts.
In this environment, some alternative type reporting via Mensch, Claude Taylor, etc. can be a healthy corrective.
To be sure, because they are less strict in their rules for sourcing, they’re reports have a higher likelihood of being false. But the positive is that many things the MSM buries you can hear through them.
P.S. I’m Mike Sax and I’m running for the NY 2nd District and have a question:
Would you prefer Peter King to continue to sit on the House Intelligence Committee Russia hearings or your buddy Mike?
If you’d prefer me I want you to consider either buying a campaign t shirt and/or donating today.
The shirt is pretty cool-in all due modesty. See-Hillary likes it too! Yes-that’s really me to her right!
Think of the shirt as a one time investment in restoring legitimacy to this country.
And please donate so we can compete with Peter King’s $4 million. I know no lobbyists or millionaires like Peter King. Small donations are the engine of the Mike Sax NY2 campaign. Together we can do it. Because we must.
