EXCLUSIVE: Judiciary Committee Considering Articles of Impeachment

By Louise Mensch and Claude Taylor

Multiple sources close to the intelligence, justice and law enforcement communities say that the House Judiciary Committee is considering Articles of Impeachment against the President of the United States.

Sources further say that the Supreme Court notified Mr. Trump that the formal process of a case of impeachment against him was begun, before he departed the country on Air Force One. The notification was given, as part of the formal process of the matter, in order that Mr. Trump knew he was not able to use his powers of pardon against other suspects in Trump-Russia cases. Sources have confirmed that the Marshal of the Supreme Court spoke to Mr. Trump.

It was reported this week that Mr. Trump had texted Lt. Gen. Mike Flynn the message ‘Stay strong’. This might be interpreted as an attempt to intimidate a witness, sources say.

Deputy Attorney General Rosenstein met with the House Judiciary Committee this week in closed session.

The authors have previously reported exclusively on Patribotics that a sealed indictment exists against Donald Trump.

EXCLUSIVE: Sealed Indictment granted against Donald Trump

By Louise Mensch and Claude Taylor

Separate sources with links to the intelligence and justice communities have stated that a sealed indictment has been granted against Donald Trump.

While it is understood that the Supremacy Clause of the Constitution means that, until Mr. Trump is impeached, he cannot be prosecuted, sources say that the indictment is intended by the FBI and prosecutors in the Justice Department to form the basis of Mr. Trump’s impeachment. The indictment is, perhaps uniquely, not intended or expected to be used for prosecution, sources say, because of the constitutional position of the President.

“Trump’s Presidency Ended May 9th” – Hatch Getting Security Briefings

Patribotics hopes to expand our reporting and commission other writers. If you would like to donate, there are buttons around the site, or you could make a contribution here. 

Exclusive:

Several sources familiar with the matter say that Senator Orrin Hatch of Utah is being given security briefings to prepare him for the Presidency.

Sources close to the legal community indicate that matters are proceeding rapidly in the forthcoming proceedings to remove Donald Trump from office, and to indict the co-conspirators around him.

Sources with links to the intelligence community described a sense of both inevitability and urgency over the unraveling of the Trump-Pence administration over their attempts to obstruct justice. “Trump’s presdidency ended May 9th,” said one source, referring to the overtly politicized dismissal of FBI Director James Comey.

Donald Trump and Mike Pence have both violated their oaths of office in plain sight over the unconstitutional dismissal of Director Comey, these sources say, and elements of the Judicial Branch are asserting the separation of powers described in the Constitution. This matter is separate from, and additional to, the substantive charges of collusion with the Russian state, and of money-laundering, sedition, violation of the Logan Act, and other crimes with which both Trump and Pence may be charged. As I exclusively reported earlier this week, Speaker Paul Ryan, normally third in the line of succession, will be excluded as the intelligence community has an intercept in which Ryan openly admits that he knew Sergei Kislyak was washing Russian money into the GOP. This will convict Ryan on RICO charges; as I have also exclusively reported this week, a RICO case exists against the GOP as a body. The raids earlier this week on a data and consulting firm close to Paul Manafort formed part of evidence gathering in this RICO case.

Some of the violations committed this week by Pence and Trump include, but are not limited to, lying that Director Comey told Mr. Trump he was not being investigated; explicitly connecting Trump’s firing of Comey to the investigation of his connections with Russian hacking; using White House spokesmen knowingly to lie to the public, for example, Sarah Sanders Huckabee claiming Comey “committed atrocities”; having the Attorney General, Jeff Sessions, involve himself on a matter on which he was recused; explicitly stating that the White House wishes a new FBI Director to bring the Russia investigation to a conclusion; and witness tampering with threats to Director Comey.

As a result, sources say, steps are being taken by aspects of the Judicial Branch to preserve the constitutional Separation of Powers and these steps include ensuring a smooth transition of power. In order that Senator Hatch, the fourth in line, be ready to assume the duties of the office he will shortly be undertaking, several separate sources with links to the matter, report that the Senator is receiving copies of security briefings he will need upon becoming President.

 

Sources: Russia probe means President Hatch; RICO Case Against GOP

 

Patribotics hopes to expand our reporting and commission other writers. If you would like to donate, there are buttons around the site, or you could make a contribution here. 

Several separate sources with links to the intelligence communities of more than one nation, and with links within the US state and federal justice systems, have outlined  evidence that exists against multiple men in the line of succession to the US Presidency, as it relates to Russia’s hack on America. I can also exclusively report  a RICO case is being considered against the Republican party for laundering Russian money.

These sources say that Senator Orrin Hatch of Utah, who was the ‘Designated Survivor’ at the inauguration of Donald Trump (yes, really) is likely to become President if charges are pursued, according to the evidence, of illegal collusion with Russia, money laundering, and obstruction of justice.

On Donald Trump there is voluminous evidence he knowingly colluded with the Russian state in the hacking of the U.S election, and laundered Russian money through shell companies. This evidence is both data-based, for example, based on the way the server he registered laundered stolen voter registration databases with the DNC’s Vertica database in order to target Russian propaganda at voters.

He has additionally both directly obstructed justice and conspired with others to do so. Rather than repeat previous reporting in this piece I will devote a separate article to the case against Mr. Trump.

On Mike Pence, there is evidence that he obstructed justice, conspired to obstruct justice, and knew that General Mike Flynn was co-ordinating Russia’s propaganda message on behalf of a foreign power. Pence also violated the Logan Act and obstructed justice when he conspired with Donald Trump to order General Flynn illegally to discuss the removal of sanctions while Barack Obama was still President, and that Pence, Trump and Flynn did so to undermine the action a sitting President was taking against a foreign adversary, as President Obama was expelling Russian spies. I do not mean in this list to exclude evidence of Pence’s espionage, sedition and money-laundering offenses which may have happened during the campaign; it is rather that sources have been more explicit as to Pence’s constitutional and legal violations around President Obama’s actions against Russia, conspiring with Trump to undermine the President of the United States in his action against a foreign adversary.

On Paul Ryan, Speaker of the House, normally third in the line of succession, I can report as fact that sources say that Ryan has been legally intercepted, and is on tape, admitting that he knew Russian money was being laundered into the Republican party. Without co-operation pending resignation Ryan may find himself swept up into a RICO prosecution involving the apparatus of the Republican party who accepted laundered Russian money.

This report is a clarification of what I have previously said I had heard on Twitter; namely that Ryan himself was taped at the Republican convention talking to Sergei Kislyak accepting Russian money into the campaign. Following the unconstitutional dismissal of patriot FBI Director Comey by Sessions and Trump,  sources have become more forthcoming. It was, they say, Reince Priebus who was taped talking to Sergei Kislyak and other Russians at the convention, agreeing to accept laundered or disgused Russian contributions, and Speaker Ryan is on a later intercept admitting that he knew of this plot, which places him at risk of a large number of criminal charges. A RICO case is being examined against the GOP itself, sources say.

The fourth person in the line of succession is Senator Orrin Hatch of Utah, as President pro-tem of the Senate. Sources with links to the intelligence community say they do not know of any collusion by Hatch in either money-laundering or in accepting Russian intelligence; this does not mean, they warn, that such evidence does not exist.

Some readers have expressed dismay that President Trump may use his powers of pardon to escape justice by pardoning his own confederates in their crimes. Several, separate sources with links to both the intelligence and justice communities note that any person or candidate who accepted laundered donations through banks with branches in Wall Street (even if they are from, say, Wisconsin) is liable to charges from New York’s state Attorney General Eric Schneiderman. Further, it is understood that the FBI and Federal Prosecutors are working on multiple sets of charges both carefully and individually. Were Mr. Trump to pardon General Flynn for violating the Logan Act, as one example, Flynn would have to accept he committed the crime and Trump would thereby admit his own guilt, leading to impeachment. Prosecutors might then bring separate, subsequent cases against Flynn for RICO, violations of FARA, lying to the FBI, lying on his SF-86, and so forth. At the same time, state courts, where Trump has no powers of pardon, would proceed against Flynn on money laundering crimes, and obstruction of justice charges against Trump might be laid out by Federal prosecutors before the Senate. Violation of the Logan Act is one charge against Flynn which applies to both Trump and Pence, and some lawyers read the power of Presidential pardon as not to apply to cases involving a President’s own impeachment.

Editor’s Note:  Whistleblowing

Following the unconstitutional firing of FBI Director James Comey, I am reporting, in the summary above, on at least some of the evidence that, sources say, exists on several men in the line of succession. This brief report is designed to allow whistleblowing staffers on Capitol Hill, and others, to discuss these matter, relying on a previously published report. Normally, perhaps, blogs would not give sufficient cover, but as Press Secretary Sean Spicer has spent several minutes reading my work aloud from the White House press podium, in order falsely to characterize it, the White House can now hardly object if whistleblowers decide to cite patribotics now.

For these reasons, there will be a separate report summarizing some of the evidence that, sources say, exists on figures within the Trump campaign and the Trump administration who are not part of the Presidential line of succession later, as well as a third detailing some of the offenses sources say Donald Trump has himself committed.

EXCLUSIVE: Comey Day: ‘First Trump Russia Arrests Possible’ Thursday

Two separate sources with links to the intelligence community say that the first arrests in the criminal and counter-intelligence probe will shortly take place, possibly as soon as Thursday, May 11th.

Following the unconstitutional dismissal of FBI Director James Comey, which Donald Trump both explicitly linked to his own investigation for  criminal collusion in Russia’s hacking of the American election, US and State Attorneys General are, intelligence sources say, about to make their move.

Sources confirm the exclusive reporting of Claude Taylor on Twitter that the majority of sealed indictments have been handed down in the Southern District of New York, with four sealed indictments in the Eastern District of Virginia. CNN – while wrongfully claiming an exclusive on both Taylor’s original news breaking and the first mainstream reporter to cover the news, Keith Olbermann – nonetheless confirmed last night, Tuesday, May 9th, that subpoenas were issued from the Eastern District of Virginia against associates of General Flynn.

Senator Markey announced on CNN that a Grand Jury had been empaneled in New York and cited this blog. I referred to a probably linked document from the Southern District of New York in my last piece, which reported as fact that no fewer than six separate FISA warrants had been issued in the Trump-Russia probe, but I am able to report tonight as fact both that my own sources, who are independent of Mr. Taylor’s sources, confirm multiple sealed indictments delivered at State Grand Jury level in the Southern District of  New York, and that intelligence sources also believe that the first arrests in Trump Russia will shortly be announced and may come as quickly as tomorrow.

For the sake of clarity, I still cannot report anything further than a probability on the linking of a civil document in the New York case to the indictments that have been obtained in New York under RICO. People familiar with the matter speculate that General Flynn may be among the first people arrested but they do not confirm the news.

Lastly, I can report hilarity at memos distributed throughout the intelligence community warning national security patriots against “leaks”. The confirmed and illegal leaks to the press in the Trump Russia scandal have come from Donald Trump, Mike Pence, Mike Flynn, Mike Pompeo, head of the CIA, who, sources say, is greatly distrusted because he chose to leak to the press at the behest of Sean Spicer, along with Senator Burr, chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee, and Devin Nunes, the former chairman of the House Intelligence Committee.

None of Trump, Pompeo, Pence, Nunes or Burr, each and every one of them a confirmed illegal and political leaker, has faced the slightest legal consequences** for leaking classified information.

**So far.

EXCLUSIVE: Six FISA Warrants Granted in Trump Russia Cases

Exclusive: Sources close to the intelligence community report that at least six separate FISA warrants were granted in the case of Donald Trump and his team’s collusion with Russia. A separate source confirms that the FISA warrant I reported on November 7th at Heat Street, granted against two Russian banks, was in fact two separate FISA warrants, granted on the same day. These two warrants form part of the six total granted warrants sources report, although, these sources say, there may be further FISA warrants both granted and renewed.

On Jan 11th Paul Wood of the BBC reported exclusively that the exact date of the FISA warrant against these banks – now clarified by sources to have been two separate warrants, one for each bank, Alfa Bank and Silicon Valley Bank – was October 15th. My story designated the date merely as October.

As the Trump-Russia prosecutions come closer, further details are emerging from varied sources.

Today (Sat, May 6th) on the AM Joy show on MSNBC, Joy Ann Reid became the first national broadcaster to refer to Grand Juries possibly summoned in the case of Donald Trump’s team and its collusion with the Russian government.

She referenced the tweet of Claude Taylor, whose sources had told him exclusively that Federal Grand Juries had almost completed their work. Taylor’s sources had told him that state and federal Grand Juries were convening in the case of the Trump team’s collusion with Russia.

I can add to the story that sources have pointed me at PACER records in both the Eastern District of Virginia and the Southern District of New York, which I have verified independently. In his testimony to the Judiciary Committee this past week, Mr. Comey specified that the FBI was working with ‘two main sets of prosecutors’ – one being the Eastern District of Virginia, popularly known as the ‘rocket docket’.

I have independently verified that these cases do exist. In the Eastern District of Virginia, “Case Name Not on File” was filed on April 17th, with the Movant listed as the U.S. Government.

In the Southern District of New York, also on April 17th a RICO case was filed, with the plaintiff not listed. In the Eastern District of Virginia, the Movant is publicly listed as the US Government – there is less information in the New York Southern District Court.

Both of these cases are, at the time of writing, available on search records without access to the PACER system.

Here is the publicly available information for the Eastern District of Virginia Court:

UPDATED: Sean Spicer Tweeted a Bitcoin Address – Not His Password

On January 26th of 2017 Sean Spicer using his verified twitter account tweeted the string “n9y25ah7”

Now, around this time so called tech experts in the mainstream press assumed multiple things:

  1. That this tweet was accidental.
  2. That this was either some kind of quickly changed twitter password, or just a random string of letters.

But none are true. It wasn’t a password.

What Mr. Spicer tweeted was actually an “identity confirmation code” – part of a bitcoin transaction. Just take a look at this:

bitsig.jpeg

Text: n9y25ah7

Timestamp: 2017-01-26 21:57:19

This is part of a bitcoin transaction.

From bitcoin address 19FkmhHEzgCXKfALXhahuCTDVcRnxT41MK to bitcoin address 1MNDjuPfXt3B66cWPaC17qFLkwd3usufT5 in the amount of 1.13 USD

The money came to the sending account 3 days before, for the exact sum of 1.14 USD at the time of this writing, .01 USD was used for the transaction itself.

(I use USD value here for the sake of clarity, but technically bitcoin is counted in BTC and the fractions of bitcoin this represents is too unwieldy to bother with.).

So Sean Spicer bought something with bitcoin, as himself. He wanted the people selling to him to know exactly who he was.  It was probably some kind of verification code.

What he was buying with the bitcoin is anyone’s guess at this point. The low amount of money involved makes it seem extra strange. The address that received the bitcoin to also  gained 3 more payments on march 3rd, very large payments. Over $22,000 dollars worth. https://blockchain.info/address/1MNDjuPfXt3B66cWPaC17qFLkwd3usufT5

If this is connected I cant tell yet. There’s just entirely too many strings to pull at.  I may be smart but im not a supercomputer. Plus I figure yall love a good ball of yarn to untangle.
