Seth Rich coverup Part 1, Fox News attacked and silenced, Appeals judge quotes lie, How we got to Assange Ratner testimony request, Attorney Clevenger: “why would a “street robbery” investigation need to be classified?”

Seth Rich coverup Part 1, Fox News attacked and silenced, Appeals judge quotes lie, How we got to Assange Ratner testimony request, Attorney Clevenger: “why would a “street robbery” investigation need to be classified?”

Mueller, as a matter of determined policy, omitted key steps which any honest investigator would undertake. He did not commission any forensic examination of the DNC servers. He did not interview Bill Binney. He did not interview Julian Assange. His failure to do any of those obvious things renders his report worthless.”…Craig Murray

“Ms. Sines’s testimony flatly contradicts the FBI’s claims that (1) it did not investigate matters pertaining to Mr. Rich; (2) it did not examine his computer; and (3) it conducted a “reasonable” search but could not locate any records or communications about Mr. Rich. Specifically, Ms. Sines’s testimony flatly contradicts the affidavit testimony of FBI Section Chief David M. Hardy.”…Attorney Ty Clevenger March 29, 2020

“Re: Seth Rich, keep an eye on the National Security Division of the Justice Department. As you can see from the federal complaint, the NSD ignored a FOIA request that I filed back in 2018 for records about Seth Rich. And look at Paragraph 16, plus Exhibit 8. I think NSD is playing a bigger role in the “Russian hacking” narrative than most of us understood. By sending Seth Rich records there, it’s easier to keep things classified. So why would a “street robbery” investigation need to be classified?”…Attorney Ty Clevenger July 22, 2020

 

The official narrative of the murder of Seth Rich, his non involvement in the DNC data leaks as well as the alleged Russian collusion, never made sense to anyone paying attention, with an IQ greater than a squirrel and who wants the truth.

Fox News and a host of other non fake news sources began reporting and asking questions immediately.

The deep state and swamp responded immediately with attacks.

Pretty soon, Sean Hannity, one of the most sincere and dependable newsmen, was silent on the Seth Rich controversy.

Joel and Mary Rich, on March 13, 2018, filed a lawsuit against Fox News, Malia Zimmerman and Ed Butowsky.

“2. In July 2016, Seth Rich, a young Democratic National Committee (“DNC”)
employee, was murdered in the streets of Washington, D.C., in what authorities have stated publicly was a botched robbery. Fox News, Fox reporter Malia Zimmerman, and Fox News contributor and political operative Ed Butowsky intentionally exploited this tragedy—including through lies, misrepresentations, and half-truths—with disregard for the obvious harm that their actions would cause Joel and Mary.”

“Defendants worked with Wheeler to pursue and develop a fiction
that Seth had leaked thousands of DNC emails to WikiLeaks. And they published, republished, and publicized the sham story—which they knew would be covered again and again, and republished, here and around the world—painting Joel and Mary’s son as a criminal and a traitor to the United States.”

“22. Notwithstanding the U.S. intelligence community’s conclusion that Russia had obtained the DNC emails via computer hacking, a conspiracy theory emerged among fringe political groups that Seth had leaked the DNC emails.”

The lawsuit against Fox News was dismissed on August 3, 2018.

From Citizen Wells August 3, 2018.

“A federal judge in Manhattan dismissed a lawsuit Thursday that was brought against Fox News by the parents of Seth Rich, the young Democratic aide whose unsolved murder was turned into fodder for a lingering right-wing conspiracy theory.”

“In a related decision, Judge Daniels also dismissed a separate lawsuitbrought against Fox News, Ms. Zimmerman and Mr. Butowsky by a private detective who had played a central role in the retracted story.”

Joel and Mary Rich immediately filed a notice of appeal.

Oral arguments were presented on February 4, 2019.

An opinion was rendered on September 13, 2019.

“Three years ago, Seth Rich was murdered during a botched robbery. He was
a 27‐year‐old staffer for the Democratic National Committee (“DNC”). Soon after
Seth’s murder, uncorroborated theories—contradicted by official U.S. intelligence reports—surfaced on the web. Seth had leaked thousands of DNC emails to WikiLeaks, the theories asserted, and that is why he had been assassinated.”

“CONCLUSION
We VACATE the District Court’s August 2, 2018, judgment granting the
Appellees’ motion to dismiss, and we REMAND the case for further proceedings
consistent with this opinion.”

The case has been ongoing since.

6 attempts were made to subpoena Ellen Ratner.

Why is Ellen Ratner important?

From Citizen Wells July 15, 2019.

From Attorney Ty Clevenger July 15, 2019.

“Fox News news analyst Ellen Ratner relayed information from Wikileaks founder Julian Assange to Texas businessman Ed Butowsky regarding Seth Rich’s role in transferring emails to Wikileaks, according to an amended lawsuit that I filed this morning on behalf of Mr. Butowsky.”

The Fox News legal team requests testimony from Julian Assange.

From Citizen Wells August 5, 2020.

“This Request is being made to obtain testimony from Julian Assange for use at trial in the above-captioned matter in relation to the source of the DNC emails and documents released by WikiLeaks in 2016; WikiLeaks’ response to Mr. Rich’s murder; and WikiLeaks’ communications with Mr. Rich and members of Mr. Rich’s family.”

So that is how we got here.

The deep state swamp folks have attempted to be clever.

However, in their devious attempts to hide and obfuscate the truth, they have motivated folks in the private sector such as attorneys Ty Clevenger, Sidney Powell and the Fox legal team to rise to the occasion and reveal the truth.

Findings of Misconduct by a then Federal Bureau of Investigation Unit Chief for Approving a Subordinate’s Outside Employment Form Knowing that the Form Contained Misleading Information and Dereliction of Supervisory Responsibilities

The Department of Justice Office of the Inspector General (OIG) initiated this investigation upon the receipt of information from the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) alleging that a then Unit Chief approved a request for outside
employment submitted by a subordinate that contained false information, despite the Unit Chief allegedly being fully aware of the circumstances of the request, and then forwarded the request for executive approval. The request was
made during the lapse in appropriations, which began in December 2018 (commonly referred to as the “government shutdown”), at a time when the subordinate had been furloughed and was no longer receiving a regular paycheck. TheFBI canceled the subordinate’s request before the subordinate began outside employment.

The OIG investigation substantiated that the Unit Chief violated FBI policy by approving the subordinate’s outside employment form despite knowing that the form contained misleading information, in that it failed to disclose a
professional relationship between the subordinate and the potential outside employer that raised a financial conflict of interest concern. The OIG investigation also substantiated that the Unit Chief violated FBI policy by failing to exercise reasonable care in the execution of supervisory duties and responsibilities related to the subordinate’s request for outside employment.

The Unit Chief retired while the OIG investigation was ongoing.
The OIG has completed its investigation and provided its report to the FBI for its information.”

When we think about sexual misconduct and inappropriate conduct within the FBI and DOJ, Peter Strzok and Lisa Page come to mind.

However, they are only the tip of the iceberg.

Sexual misconduct, inappropriate conduct and other ethics violations create conditions ripe for blackmail and may explain the conduct of DOJ personnel over the past years.

Here are some of the more disturbing reports from the Office of the Inspector General (OIG) over the past year.

“INVESTIGATIVE SUMMARY
Findings of Misconduct by a then Federal Bureau of Investigation Unit Chief for
Engaging in an Improper, Intimate Relationship with a Subordinate and Related Misconduct

The Department of Justice (DOJ) Office of the Inspector General (OIG) initiated an investigation upon receipt of information from the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), Inspection Division, alleging that a then FBI Unit Chief (UC) was engaged in an improper, intimate relationship with a subordinate, was directly involved in the subordinate’s promotion, and had favored the
subordinate for temporary duty (TDY) opportunities.

The OIG investigation substantiated the allegation that the then FBI UC was engaged in an ongoing intimate relationship with the subordinate and had failed to disclose that relationship in violation of FBI policy. The OIG investigation also found that the then FBI UC had been directly involved in the subordinate’s promotion while the relationship was ongoing and had preferred the subordinate for certain work assignments and travel opportunities, also in violation of FBI policy. The FBI UC’s conduct violated federal ethics regulations regarding
impartiality. The FBI UC retired while the OIG’s investigation was ongoing.

The OIG has completed its investigation and provided its report to the FBI for its information.
***
Unless otherwise noted, the OIG applies the preponderance of the evidence standard in determining whether Department of Justice (DOJ) personnel have committed misconduct.”

Is the unnamed Unit Chief David M. Hardy?

From Attorney Ty Clevenger July 22, 2020.

“One more thing: A couple of weeks ago I noticed that the FBI’s FOIA letters were no longer signed by Section Chief David M. Hardy, but by Acting Section Chief Michael G. Seidel. What happened to Mr. Hardy? You may recall that Mr. Hardy filed a sworn declaration in 2018 claiming that the FBI searched its files and located no records about Seth Rich.

In September of 2019, however, Judicial Watch obtained an email string about Seth Rich in response to a FOIA request for communications between FBI lovebirds Peter Strzok and Lisa Page, and in March of 2020 former U.S. Attorney Deborah Sines testified that the FBI had investigated Seth Rich’s laptop and his online accounts. In other words, Mr. Hardy’s testimony was false.

I repeatedly asked U.S. Attorney John Durham and DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz to investigate whether Mr. Hardy lied under oath, and in an April 22, 2020 letter Mr. Horowitz wrote that he referred my complaint to the FBI’s Inspection Division. Was Mr. Hardy forced out? I don’t know, but if you have any inside information, please send it my way.”

Specifically, Ms. Sines’s testimony flatly contradicts the affidavit testimony of FBI Section Chief David M. Hardy.”…Attorney Ty Clevenger March 29, 2020

 

From Attorney Ty Clevenger July 22, 2020.

  • “On Monday, I filed an updated Freedom of Information Act lawsuit for records about Seth Rich, the Awan family, and government surveillance of journalists.
  • Re: Seth Rich, keep an eye on the National Security Division of the Justice Department. As you can see from the federal complaint, the NSD ignored a FOIA request that I filed back in 2018 for records about Seth Rich. And look at Paragraph 16, plus Exhibit 8. I think NSD is playing a bigger role in the “Russian hacking” narrative than most of us understood. By sending Seth Rich records there, it’s easier to keep things classified. So why would a “street robbery” investigation need to be classified?
  • In the Huddleston FOIA case, the government’s response is due on August 10, 2020. Mark your calendar. By that date, the FBI will have to explain what it has done to locate and produce records about Seth Rich. And this time around, the FBI doesn’t have the luxury of denying that the records exist.”

From the brief filed by Attorney Sidney Powell at the US Court of Appeals District of Columbia July 20, 2020.

MICHAEL T. FLYNN’S OPPOSITION TO REHEARING EN BANC

“No federal circuit has countenanced rehearing of a mandamus on
petition by a district judge. Judge Sullivan has no cognizable interest in
the case. Rehearing should be denied because the panel properly applied
the longstanding use of mandamus to which General Flynn is clearly
entitled “to confine an inferior court to a lawful exercise of its prescribed
jurisdiction or to compel it to exercise its authority when it is its duty to
do so.” Roche v. Evaporated Milk Ass’n, 319 U.S. 21, 26 (1943). Here, it
is both.

Rehearing is not warranted under Fed. R. App. P. 35(a)(1) because
there is no conflict with any decision. The opinion is not only consistent
with—but required by—United States v. Fokker Servs. B.V., 818 F.3d 733
(D.C. Cir. 2016), and United States v. Ammidown, 497 F.2d 615 (D.C. Cir.
1973). Ammidown recognizes the responsibility of the Executive Branch
to determine “the public interest” to justify dismissal. Id. at 620. Only
the prosecutor is “in a position to evaluate the government’s prosecution
resources and the number of cases it is able to prosecute.” Id. at 621.
Dismissal is required upon the Government’s statement of reasons. As
the Second Circuit wrote when reversing then Judge Gleeson for selfaggrandizing his role in reviewing a deferred prosecution agreement, to do otherwise would turn “the presumption [of regularity] on its
head.” United States v. HSBC Bank USA, N.A., 863 F.3d 125, 136 (2d
Cir. 2017).

The district court exceeded its constitutional authority by
appointing amicus to work against General Flynn after the parties
agreed to dismissal. The Constitution and all precedent applying or
analyzing Fed. R. Crim. P. 48(a) mandate dismissal on the robust
substantive motion of the government—every case. Even if this were an
issue of first impression, this Court has held that “mandamus is
appropriate” where there is “a substantial allegation of usurpation of
power.” In re Sealed Case No. 98-3077, 151 F.3d 1059, 1067 (D.C. Cir.
1998) (citing Schlagenhauf v. Holder, 379 U.S. 104, 111 (1964)); see Ex
parte Peru, 318 U.S. 578, 587 (1943) (“delay and inconvenience of a
prolonged litigation [must] be avoided by prompt termination of the
proceedings in the district court”). The district court’s delay here has
extended this litigation and impaired General Flynn’s freedom for an
additional ten weeks so far.”

“The district court has hijacked and extended a criminal prosecution
for almost three months for its own purposes. For these reasons and
those in Flynn’s Petition and Reply, and the arguments and briefs of the
Government, this Court should deny rehearing and issue mandamus to
dismiss with prejudice instanter.”

Latest Flynn discovery docs revealed in Sidney Powell supplemental filing July 10, 2020, “additional Brady violations and even more reasons requiring dismissal of the case against General Flynn”

Latest Flynn discovery docs revealed in Sidney Powell supplemental filing July 10, 2020, “additional Brady violations and even more reasons
requiring dismissal of the case against General Flynn”

“her client was “totally set up” because he threatened to expose wrongdoing by top intelligence officials in the Obama administration.

“He was going to audit the intel agencies because he knew about the billions Brennan and company were running off the books,” Powell said, referring to former CIA Director John Brennan.”…Sidney Powell, Vickie McKenna Show

“Immediately after President Trump won election, opponents inaugurated what they call ‘The Resistance’ and they rallied around an explicit strategy of using every tool and maneuver to sabotage the functioning of the executive branch.” …Attorney General Barr

“Instead of doing so, the government has continued to defy its
constitutional, ethical and legal obligations to this Court and to the defense, and to hide evidence that it knows exonerates Mr. Flynn. As is the essence of the problem here, instead of protecting its citizens, the “government” is protecting its own criminal conduct and operatives.”…Attorney Sidney Powell October

 

From the Second Supplement in Support of Agreed Dismissal

filed by Attorney Sidney Powell July 10, 2020.

“Mr. Jensen’s review has unearthed additional exculpatory evidence.
Accordingly, as dismissal has not yet been granted and General Flynn must establish and preserve the record, General Flynn provided his first supplement seasonably on June 24, 2020,ECF No. 231, and now files this Second Supplement.

On July 7, 2020, the Government produced to General Flynn 14-pages of
additional evidence, demonstrating (i) his innocence; (ii) the absence of any crime; (iii) government misconduct in the investigation of General Flynn; and (iv) prosecutorial misconduct in the suppression of evidence favorable to the defense in violation of Brady v. Maryland, 373 U.S. 83 (1963) and this Court’s Brady order. These documents both corroborate information provided by others previously and provide new information known to at least ten people at the highest levels of the Department of Justice and the FBI. This evidence negates multiple essential elements required for the prosecution of a false statement offense.

These documents establish that on January 25, 2017—the day after the agents
ambushed him at the White House—the agents and DOJ officials knew General
Flynn’s statements were not material to any investigation, that he was “open and
forthcoming” with the agents, that he had no intent to deceive them, and that he
believed he was fully truthful with them. In short, there was no crime for many
reasons. These documents were known to exist at the highest levels of the Justice
Department and by Special Counsel, yet they were hidden from the defense for three years.”
