Trump indictment live updates: Charges include Espionage Act, conspiracy to obstruct
Donald Trump has become the first U.S. president, former or otherwise, to be indicted on federal criminal charges.
[OCS: Using a novel legal theory and selective prosecution by a partisan individual with a history of corrupt judicial behavior, the prosecutors chose this moment to release the news of Trump’s impending indictment. Why?]
Trump announced in Thursday night posts on his Truth Social platform that prosecutors had notified his attorneys he had been indicted. NBC News confirmed soon after that he faces seven charges. They include making false statements and conspiracy to obstruct, Trump lawyer James Trusty told CNN on Thursday. The charges also include willfully retaining documents in violation of the Espionage Act, he said.
Trump, the leading contender for the GOP presidential nomination next year, is scheduled to appear Tuesday at a federal courthouse in Miami. The former president had kept reams of classified documents in boxes at his Mar-a-Lago resort in South Florida until federal agents raided it last year and seized the records.
[OCS: There does not appear to be any corresponding prosecution of President Joe Biden, who kept over a thousand boxes of documents, including classified documents, beginning from his Senate days and continuing until he was out of office as the Vice President. Unlike Trump, who kept documents in a secure area protected by the Secret Service, Biden’s document cache spanned multiple jurisdictions and were left unguarded.]
The ex-president said he’s innocent and ripped the case as the “box hoax.”
Special counsel Jack Smith has been investigating Trump over the removal of classified documents from the White House after he left office, as well as apparent efforts by Trump and his aides to potentially stymie the government’s investigation.
[OCS: It appears that negotiations over the retention of certain documents have now been criminalized, although the President of the United States has, unlike any other government official, the unilateral authority to declassify any document -- as the President is the sole repository of the Executive Branch Authority. Defending yourself is now characterized as obstruction of justice.] <Source>
What seems to be overshadowed by the mainstream media…
Marjorie Taylor Greene reveals contents of Biden bribery doc
Georgia Republican Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene on Thursday revealed the contents of a document detailing an alleged bribery scheme involving President Joe Biden.
After weeks of resistance, the FBI finally permitted the members of the House Oversight Committee to view the form FD-1023 which includes allegations from a confidential human source detailing the alleged pay-to-play scheme.
At issue is Ukrainian oil company Burisma, which was facing an investigation from Ukrainian Prosecutor General Viktor Shokin in 2016. The company hired Hunter Biden to "make the problems go away," Greene said. "That’s what they specifically said."
"[Burisma's owner] also said that he paid $5 million to one Biden and he paid $5 million to another Biden," Greene continued. "And it was all a bribery to get Shokin fired and end the investigation into Burisma."
Greene indicated that the Burisma owner retained records of the payments to the Bidens.
Viktor Shokin was removed from his post in 2016.
The Georgia Republican vowed to continue pursuing the matter and said she had "high expectations" that the FBI would continue cooperating with the House. She did, however, lament that the FBI had not permitted a public release of the FD-1023.
What is problematic is that all of Biden’s nefarious and corrupt activities took place under former President Obama, who had the sole decision-making power over policies involving Ukraine.
In a recorded appearance before the Council of Foreign Relations, Joe Biden bragged about an apparent illegal quid pro quo. It appears that the Department of Justice is being run by an Obama acolyte, Lisa Monaco, who seems to be the puppeteer pulling Attorney General Garland’s strings, and FBI Christopher Wray is deliberately obstructing justice at their direction.
JOE BIDEN, JANUARY 23, 2018: And that is I’m desperately concerned about the backsliding on the part of Kyiv in terms of corruption. They made—I mean, I’ll give you one concrete example. I was—not I, but it just happened to be that was the assignment I got. I got all the good ones. And so I got Ukraine. And I remember going over, convincing our team, our leaders to—convincing that we should be providing for loan guarantees. And I went over, I guess, the 12th, 13th time to Kyiv. And I was supposed to announce that there was another billion-dollar loan guarantee. And I had gotten a commitment from Poroshenko and from Yatsenyuk that they would take action against the state prosecutor. And they didn’t.
So they said they had—they were walking out to a press conference. I said, nah, I’m not going to—or, we’re not going to give you the billion dollars. They said you have no authority. You’re not the president. The president said — I said, call him.
I said, I’m telling you, you’re not getting the billion dollars. I said, you’re not getting the billion. I’m going to be leaving here in, I think it was about six hours. I looked at them and said: I’m leaving in six hours. If the prosecutor is not fired, you’re not getting the money. Well, son of a bitch. (Laughter.) He got fired. And they put in place someone who was solid at the time.
Well, there’s still—so they made some genuine substantial changes institutionally and with people. But one of the three institutions, there’s now some backsliding.
Unlike the phony quid pro quo allegations ginned up against Trump, Biden's misdeeds are apparent for all to see.
It is also problematic that documents sent by Biden’s drug addict son and bagman included passages that could have been lifted from classified documents as the style and content exceeded Hunter’s knowledge and writing abilities.
Yes, Espionage – by Biden!
Key Player in Biden Documents Removal Was Caught Up in Bill Clinton-Era Chinagate Scandal
The custodian of Joe Biden’s vice presidential records, a key witness in his classified documents probe, was caught up in another documents scandal while working at the Commerce Department during the Clinton administration, court records reveal.
Longtime Biden aide and gatekeeper Kathy S. Chung, who has been interviewed by federal prosecutors and congressional investigators in the Biden case, was part of a team sanctioned for withholding and even destroying key documents in the federal case that sought sensitive records from a central figure in the so-called Chinagate fundraising investigation of the late 1990s, RealClearInvestigations has learned exclusively.
A special prosecutor is now investigating whether Biden unlawfully handled top secret materials in early 2017, when he tasked Chung with removing boxes containing classified documents from the White House and storing them at various private offices in D.C., including the Chinatown neighborhood. Some of the highly sensitive papers also ended up at his home in Wilmington, Del.
Noting that Chung came into Biden’s orbit through working with the president’s son, Hunter, during the 1990s, congressional investigators want to know if the Biden family dealings in China have anything to do with the stockpiling of classified documents. They note that the mishandling of White House papers took place during the 14-month period in 2017-2018 when the Chinese were wiring almost $6 million in payments to Hunter and his uncle Jimmy Biden without providing any known legitimate services. They have expressed concern that the payments, which the U.S. Treasury Department flagged, were part of a Chinese intelligence-gathering operation.
Chung is central to the Justice Department’s investigation of Biden’s breach of classified documents. <Source>
Yet. they are going after Donald Trump. Something stinks, starting with Obama and his corruption of our premier intelligence and law enforcement agencies. Let us never forget Obama was and is a communist with a highly shadowy background that has never been fully explored by the government or the media, as both advanced his radical progressive communist democrat agenda.
In the realm of partisan politics, a world governed by strategy, power, and calculated moves, the occurrence of seeming coincidental actions should be viewed with great skepticism – where seemingly simultaneous actions have much more profound implications as they are meant to manipulate and mold public opinion as they delay, obfuscate, or bury bad news.
The progressive communist democrats are locked in an existential fight – to cover up provable crimes, including espionage activities that would see at least fifty top politicians facing prison or, more likely, widespread public disapproval.
We are so screwed.
