USDOJ attorney Brandon Van Grack corrupt or cog in wheel of corruption?, Barr put Grack in charge of FARA, Does this bode well for Barr Durham investigation?

“Given the material defense counsel has requested, which remains outstanding, Mr. Van Grack’s denial that further Brady material exists is patently absurd. It demonstrates arrogance and utter contempt for the letter and the spirit of this Court’s explicit order, the rule of Brady v. Maryland, and the protections guaranteed to defendants by the U.S. Constitution.”…US v. Flynn motion to compel production of Brady Material 

“Prosecutors Brandon Van Grack of the Justice Department’s national security division, who was formerly on Mr. Mueller’s team, and Assistant U.S. Attorney Deborah Curtis, of Washington, provided little explanation as to why they were not turning over the transcripts.”…Pittsburgh Post-Gazette June 1, 2019

“Former Deputy Director Andrew McCabe as much as admitted the FBI’s intent to set up Mr. Flynn on a criminal false statement charge from the get-go.”…Attorney Sidney Powell November 4, 2019  

 

Is US Justice Department attorney Brandon Van Grack corrupt or simply caught up in a web of corruption that permeates the Justice Dept., i.e. guilty by association?

Examine the following:

Grack is an Obama donor.

He was hired by the Justice Dept. in 2010, early in the Obama admin.

He was part of Mueller’s team.

Van Grack is the lead prosecutor in the General Flynn case.

Pittsburgh Post-Gazette June 1, 2019.

“Prosecutors Brandon Van Grack of the Justice Department’s national security division, who was formerly on Mr. Mueller’s team, and Assistant U.S. Attorney Deborah Curtis, of Washington, provided little explanation as to why they were not turning over the transcripts.”

United States v. Michael T. Flynn Supplemental Status Report September 30, 2019.

“Even more troubling, Mr. Van Grack was determined that Mr. Flynn would testify in the Rafiekian case that he had knowingly signed a false FARA registration, even though Mr. Van Grack knew that was not true and Mr. Flynn had not agreed to that in the course of his plea agreement. Mr. Flynn’s refusal to get on the witness stand and lie for the government on that point prompted a heated tirade from Mr. Van Grack with Mr. Flynn’s lead counsel, in which Mr. Van Grack claimed Mr. Flynn had agreed to plead to a knowing and intentional false FARA filing. Dkt. 98-1.

In our endless document review, we now have a draft of the statement of offense that proves the contrary, showing similar language deleted. The absence of that language from the statement of offense or any charge of a false filing did not deter Mr. Van Grack from doubling down.
Enraged that Mr. Flynn reject their demand to lie, the prosecutors in the EDVA (Mr. James Gillis, Mr. Evan Turgeon, and Mr. John Gibbs, with Mr. Van Grack’s oversight) retaliated with an ex parte gag order and sealed filing on July 3. For the first time, the prosecutors claimed that Mr. Flynn was a co-conspirator. They put Michael Flynn Jr. on the witness list for the Rafiekian trial.”

FLYNN REPLY IN SUPPORT OF HIS MOTION TO COMPEL PRODUCTION OF BRADY MATERIAL AND TO HOLD THE PROSECUTORS IN CONTEMPT

October 24, 2019.

“3. Mr. Van Grack’s Productions of Flynn 302s Were Incomplete and Misleading. But it gets worse. When Mr. Van Grack made his first official production to former counsel of any actual documents (other than the (final) Flynn 302 produced on Nov. 22, 2017) on March 13, 2018—all of which should have been produced before Mr. Flynn pleaded guilty—Mr. Van Grack made it sound like there was only one 302:

This is false. On May 25, 2018, Mr. Van Grack dribbled out another production—again denying any obligation to do so under Brady or the Court’s Standing Order. This included a draft 302 dated February 10, 2017, as if it were the only other one. That was also misleading. After former counsel called Mr. Van Grack, on June 1, 2018, the government produced two more drafts of the 302—these dated February 11, 2017, and February 14, 2017. Mr. Van Grack did not explain why all these intervening drafts were not produced in March, nor how they suddenly turned up, and there are material differences— especially from February 10 to February 11. Ex. 11. Obviously, there are drafts of the 302, including an original draft in the files or subfiles of the Sentinel System of the FBI dating back to January 24, 2017, or so—the date of the actual interview of Mr. Flynn. Brady requires the production of the original 302, all drafts, notes, recordings, statements, and all testimony of the two agents along with all participants in any of the meetings to plan the ambush of Mr. Flynn “to keep him relaxed.” If they are not there, then they were wrongfully destroyed. Either way, the government must be held to account.”

From Attorney Sidney Powell November 5, 2019.

“#VanGrack just advised by letter that he got the authors of the raw notes backwards!! Since March 2018 when first disclosed! All the more reason to require originals of everything without redactions, handwriting samples, all 302s, audit trail, metadata-entire file!”

“SHOCKING: Corrupt Mueller Team Official Brandon Van Grack Is Now In Charge of DOJ’s FARA Unit Used to Spy on Republican”

“Van Grack was one of the lawyers on Mueller’s team that handled the Flynn investigation, set-up and guilty plea.
He is overseeing Flynn’s case in court.”

“What CNN Left Out in the report on Van Grack– He led a grand jury inquiry in Northern Virginia scrutinizing former Trump associate Michael Flynn’s foreign lobbying. And Van Grack donated to the Obama campaign.

Following the corrupt investigation of the Trump campaign and Trump administration Van Grack was promoted to head the DOJ’s FARA Unit.
This is the same unit used to target and ruin Republican officials in 2016 and it is the same unit Democrats are hoping to use to indict President Trump’s Attorney Rudy Giuliani.”

William Barr became Attorney General in February of 2019.

Brandon Van Grack was put in charge of FARA in March 2019.

Perhaps Barr was not aware of Grack’s corrupt activities then.

Is Barr aware of them now and is Brandon Van Grack under scrutiny as part of the Barr Durham investigations?

Brandon Van Grack corrupt?

You decide.

“Prosecutors Request Flynn’s Upcoming Hearing Be Suspended Pending IG Report

Government prosecutors in the case of former National Security Advisor Army Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn requested from the court late Tuesday night to suspend Flynn’s upcoming hearing. The prosecutors cited in their motion that the government is waiting for the completion of Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz’s report on the bureau’s probe into President Donald Trump’s campaign and Russia, as well as an expected ruling by the court on Flynn’s attorney’s request for exculpatory evidence.

Last month, U.S. District Judge Emmet Sullivan, who is presiding over former National Security Adviser Flynn’s case, canceled the hearing. Sullivan cited Powell’s motion, which accused the government of a litany of misconduct allegations. She is seeking exculpatory evidence that she contends the government is withholding in Flynn’s case. The hearing last month had been scheduled for Nov. 7.

The court had rescheduled the sentencing hearing for Flynn on Dec. 18 but the joint motion requests that the sentencing be vacated.

U.S. Prosecutor Jessie K. Liu noted in Tuesday’s late night filing “the Court had not yet issued its ruling on the defendant’s Motion to Compel. Both parties share the Court’s goal to move this case along expeditiously.” Liu said in the motion that Horowitz’s report, which is expected to be made public on Dec. 9, may contain information pertinent to Flynn’s case.

“The parties nonetheless believe that their sentencing submissions will be incomplete if they are filed prior to the Court’s issuance of its ruling on the Motion to Compel,” prosecutors stated. “Additionally, the parties note that the Department of Justice’s Office of the Inspector General (OIG) is conducting an Examination of the Department’s and the FBI’s Compliance with Legal Requirements and Policies in Applications Filed with the US. Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court Relating to a certain US. Person. The parties expect that the report of this investigation will examine topics related to several matters raised by the defendant. As widely reported by the media, that report is expected to issue in the next several weeks.”

“For these reasons, the parties respectfully request that the Court suspend the currently scheduled dates for briefing and sentencing until further order of the Court,” Liu added.

The new move by prosecutors is significant, said Flynn’s defense attorney Sidney Powell. She told SaraACarter.com that “it is the only thing for the government to do–short of producing the information we have requested or dismissing the case on it’s own motion.””

“Ukrainian Indictment Claims $7.4 Billion Obama-Linked Laundering, Puts Biden Group Take At $16.5 Million

An indictment drawn up by Ukraine’s Office of the Prosecutor General against Burisma owner Nikolai Zlochevsky claims that Hunter Biden and his partners received $16.5 million for their ‘services’ – according to Ukrainian MP Alexander Dubinsky of the ruling Servant of the People Party.

Dubinsky made the claim in a Wednesday press conference, citing materials from an investigation into Zlochevsky and Burisma.

“Zlochevsky was charged with this new accusation by the Office of the Prosecutor General but the press ignored it,” said the MP. “It was issued on November 14.”

The son of Vice-President Joe Biden was receiving payment for his services, with money raised through criminal means and money laundering,” he then said, adding “Biden received money that did not come from the company’s successful operation but rather from money stolen from citizens.”

According to Dubinsky, Hunter Biden’s income from Burisma is a “link that reveals how money is siphoned [from Ukraine],” and how Biden is just one link in the chain of Zlochevsky’s money laundering operation which included politicians from the previous Yanukovich administration who continued their schemes under his successor, President Pyotr Poroshenko.”

“According to Interfax-Ukraine, MP Andriy Derkach announced at the same press conference that deputies have received new materials from investigative journalists alleging that the ‘family’ of ex-President Yanukovych funneled $7.4 billion through American investment firm Franklin Templeton Investments, which they claim have connections to the US Democratic party.

“Last week, November 14, the Prosecutor General’s Office (PGO), unnoticed by the media, announced a new suspicion to the notorious owner of Burisma, ex-Ecology Minister Zlochevsky. According to the suspicion, the Yanukovych family is suspected, in particular, with legalizing (laundering) of criminally obtained income through Franklin Templeton Investments, an investment fund carrying out purchases of external government loan bonds totaling $7.4 billion,” said Derkach, adding that the money was criminally obtained and invested in the purchase of Ukrainian debt in 2013 – 2014.

The son of Templeton’s founder, John Templeton Jr., was one of President Obama’s major campaign donors. Another fund-related character is Thomas Donilon. Managing Director of BlackRock Investment Institute, shareholder Franklin Templeton Investments, which has the largest share in the fund. It is noteworthy that he previously was Obama’s national security advisor,” Derkach added.”

“AG Barr Defends President Trump, Says Democrats Are “Using Every Tool and Maneuver to Sabotage the Functioning of the Executive Branch”

AG Barr stood up for President Trump and the Executive Branch stating that Democrats are “using every tool and maneuver to sabotage the functioning of the Executive Branch”.

At the 28:00 mark of the video below, AG Barr shared this –

“As I said the framers fully expected intense pulling between Congress and the Executive. Unfortunately just in the past few years we’ve seen these conflicts take on an entirely new character. Immediately after President Trump won election opponents inaugurated what they called ‘the resistance’ and they rallied around an explicit strategy of using every tool and maneuver to sabotage the functioning of the Executive Branch and his administration. The language used to describe insurgency against rule imposed by an occupying military power. It obviously connotes, it obviously connotes, that the government is not legitimate. This is a very dangerous and indeed incendiary notion to import into the politics of a democratic republic.

The Hill shared this part of the AG’s speech –

Fiona Hill testimony demolishes Christopher Steele dossier and media reporting, Scathing portrayal of Steele, President was attacked as well

Fiona Hill testimony demolishes Christopher Steele dossier and media reporting, Scathing portrayal of Steele, President was attacked as well

“And also, the point that actually hasn’t come out and,
again, why I’ve been very cross in the media, is that the
President was attacked as well, because the Russians sought
to discredit him.

And I’ve been very unhappy with the media coverage of
all of this, which is why I don’t want to start, you know,
kind of basically doing testimony by virtue of an article
that you’ve read in Politico. Because everybody wants to
sensationalize things, everybody wants to spend time looking
at the things that seem sexy, and they don’t want to actually
look at, you know, talk to what the facts are.”...Fiona Hill testimony

“Hill said she was “shocked” to find out that Steele was the author of the dossier, in part because she had known him to “constantly try to drum up business.””…The Daily Caller

“If I had my choice I would kill every reporter in the world but I am sure we would be getting reports from hell before breakfast.”… William Tecumseh Sherman

 

From The Daily Caller.

“Impeachment Witness Undercut Steele Dossier In Bombshell Testimony

  • Fiona Hill, who was the top Russia expert at the White House, told lawmakers in October that she believed Russians fed disinformation to dossier author Christopher Steele.
  • Hill offered a scathing portrayed of Steele during a deposition she gave as part of the Democratic-led impeachment inquiry of President Donald Trump. 
  • Hill said she was “shocked” to find out that Steele was the author of the dossier, in part because she had known him to “constantly try to drum up business.” 
  • The FBI relied heavily on Steele’s information for its investigation into possible Trump-Russia collusion.

A former White House official who Democrats consider a key witness in their impeachment inquiry told lawmakers in October that she believed Russians likely planted disinformation about President Donald Trump with dossier author Christopher Steele.

Fiona Hill, who served as the White House’s top adviser on Russia affairs until July, told lawmakers she was “shocked” to find out that Steele, a former MI6 officer, was the author of the dossier. That’s in large part because when she had met with Steele in the years leading up to his dossier work, he was “constantly try to drum up business.”

“Because if you also think about it, the Russians would have an ax to grind against him given the job that he had previously. And if he started going back through his old contacts and asking about, that would be a perfect opportunity for people to feed some kind of misinformation,” said Hill, who was a scholar at the Brookings Institution until she joined the Trump administration.

Hill said she was not aware of the dossier until a colleague showed it to her day before BuzzFeed published it on Jan. 10, 2017.

When she read the report, Hill said she had “misgivings and concern that [Steele] could have been played.”

“I almost fell over when I discovered that he was doing this report,” Hill said of Steele, who she said she worked with from 2006 to 2009, when she served as a national intelligence officer.

Hill said she met most recently with Steele in 2016 and saw from those meetings that he “was clearly very interested in building up a client base.”

“And this is why I was concerned about the Steele report because that is a vulnerability,” said Hill.

“Christopher Steele going out and looking for information. He’s obviously out there soliciting information,” she added. “What a great opportunity to, basically, you know, present him with information that he’s looking for that can be couched some truth and some disinformation.”
