That's what I was thinking - what was Mueller doing even looking into the Access Hollywood tape for him to refer anything.


What makes you think he was? That could be where the SDNY investigation lead them after whatever Mueller handed them was looked at.


Again - the lawyer in the midst of the CNN TV Drama Season 1 about Stormy Daniels gets raided on information Mueller happens to find during the drama? Pull the other one.

Get ready for a continued parade of it. The tighter Muellers investigation gets the worse it's going to get. The more memes we will see. The more references to Obama or Clinton or dems in general will be presented in a what aboutism festival.
The claim will be that everything that has been made public is everything they have which is stupid because we keep getting surprised by Muellers moves. People being stopped in airports, more search warrants for manafort, this referral to the southern N.Y. district of the FBI targeting trumps lawyer. but you know...They don't have anything.

There's a lot of speculation that the Access Tapes and the Podesta Emails being released just hours after have a connection. That perhaps the "fixer" was responsible for engineering the email release to detract from the Access tapes.

That what it sounds like to me. It doesnt sound like the SDNY raid was necessarily about the Access Hollywood tapes, its just looking into the possibility that Cohen was attempting to pay people off to suppress things from coming out. We've only been told about the Stormy and Access Hollywood tapes. There may or may not be more. I still don't think this raid necessarily has very much to do with Trump legally. Its almost 100% on Cohen.

Ah, OK, thank you!

So... why would Cohen have any? Does he run a taxi service?

TheRedneck


According to this Rolling Stone article, "Cohen once ran 260 yellow cabs with his Ukrainian-born partner, the "taxi king" Simon V. Garber, until their partnership ended acrimoniously in 2012."

..very informative article about Cohen's past which may add some insight on how/why Mueller's team uncovered the evidence used for the warrants.

BREAKING: Obama Holdover Accused of Corruption Approved Trump Lawyer Raid

When the media first began to spin the raid on the president's lawyer, they claimed that it had been approved by a Trump appointee. Of course it hadn't. It came from Rosenstein on one end. And Trump's appointee had recused himself. That left his deputy, an Obama holdover. Robert Khuzami. And there are reports that he allegedly made the decision.


www.frontpagemag.com...


Hm, let's see:


Robert S. Khuzami, who led the enforcement division of the Securities and Exchange Commission for four years during the Obama administration, was named on Friday as the deputy United States attorney in Manhattan.


Ex-S.E.C. Official, Robert Khuzami, Joins Manhattan U.S. Attorney’s Office

Hm, I wonder if he knows one Melissa Hodgman:

Directors’ Panel:

Steven Peikin, Co-Director, SEC Division of Enforcement

Securities Enforcement Forum 2017

And


CSIM and CS&Co. agreed to pay more than $118 million to settle the SEC’s charges. The SEC’s case continues against the executives.

Robert Khuzami, Director of the SEC’s Division of Enforcement said, “All financial firms and professionals — including large mutual fund providers — must be vigilant in accurately describing the risks of the products they sell to the public, especially the widely-held mutual funds that are the bread-and-butter investments of retail investors.”

...

Melissa Hodgman, David Mendel and Robert Cohen in the SEC’s Division of Enforcement conducted the investigation. The SEC’s litigation against the executives will be led by David Gottesman and Frederick Block. The SEC acknowledges the assistance of FINRA in this matter.

This would seem to indicate that Strzok's wife (Melissa Hodgman) and Khuzami did indeed work together at the SEC.

Yep, and there is a ton of info in that article which certainly looks like money laundering through Trump properties. I am surprised that this hasn't been commented on or considered newsworthy since this info isn't exactly new.

Does anyone doubt the deep state or liberal machine is going to get their eyes on Trump's attorney privilege documents regardless of whether it's legal or not? It seems pretty obvious that's the main reason for the raid. The left how shown time and time again complete disregard for laws and complying with them. Smuggling documents out, destroying email servers and tablets, refusing to hand over text messages and emails.

Fabians killed Kennedy and pushed the patriot act? You are trying to rewrite history or rebrand conservatism.

t

People aren't saying there is nothing there because of indictments. O.J got indicted. People are saying there is nothing there because the original accusation , that trump campaign directly colluded with Russia in order to win the election, is unsubstantiated. All you ever hear is look how much indictments and guilt pleas ,mueller is killing it. Lol the first and only prison sentence is a 31 day stint for Christ sake.Sure sounds like he is getting to the bottom of this Russian conspiracy. Lol this guy will be out and about before I finish my semester. It's obvious mueller is looking for anything and everything.

No treason charges or any charge that relates to an American citizen working with a foreign government illegally. Look at this latest media bombshell. An FEC violation or bank fraud and unrelated to trump. Granted mueller is only minimally involved. I mean seriously ,instead of just running your mouth about indictments look at the content instead of the number. Manafort could be in some hot water IF found guilty, over somethings he did before he even was on trump campaign.

Whole case of full of # like this. Things you would have to exxagerate and squint really hard to conclude that there was collusion with Russia.

The only time # like this is suspicious or matters is when it's trumps esoteric business ties. When it's federal law enforcement incestious relationships on display it's ignored.

A 5,000 loan doesn’t have the same legal requirements that a big loan does.

For a big loan you do get asked what it’s for but , not for your average loan .

Maybe an FIC loan above X amounts of dollars..


YOU CANT LIE TO SOMEONE WHEN YOU ARE ASKING FOR MONEY OR IT IS FRAUD lol...

Even in the basest sense ..

Usually it is up to the lender if they decide to make a stink about it, but When dealing with the irs, publicly traded companies or stuff that is insured with tax payers dollars the state can charge you whether the lender does or not.


Why Cohen got an fic loan instead of paying cash.. I have no idea lol.


NO. youre wrong.
The only way that this could be criminal fraud is if HE took a secured loan and pledged HIS HOUSE as collateral for the loan when no HOUSE really existed.
In that case, you would have deceived the bank into giving you the lower interest rate after having pledged a non-existent HOUSE as collateral. This would involve forging all the paperwork of a HOUSE sale, and forging the HOUSE's DEED/ and insurance paperwork, and would be very difficult to do.


edit on 18000000pppm by yuppa because: looked up the answer to If i got a loan on something and didnt spend the money on it edited house into it.

JUST IN: The FBI agents who raided the office and hotel of Michael Cohen were seeking all records related to the “Access Hollywood” tape - NYT


If true, i don't see how it's related to this investigation. Or Cohen.


If Cohen was involved in trying to silence it, that's how it relates to him.

It doesn't relate to the Russia investigation, that's why Mueller handed it off to others to investigate.


So why was Mueller involved at all?


Mueller was tasked with examining any illicit Money flow to team Trump during the campaign.

That would include a hard look at Cohen's hidden LLCs that he used for money flow as Trump's fixer.

As per the SC Mandate if he finds evidence of crimes unrelated to Russian Interference or the list of subjects he was told to dig deep on, then he takes that evidence to the AG and the AG can say drop it or he can tell Mueller to hand it off.

Mueller obviously found something damning as Rosenstein told him to give it to the NY AG Office and they conducted a full press raid.

Cohen in his rush to shield Trump publicly disclosed that he had an LLC he created to funnel the Stormy Daniels payment.

My guess is that once Mueller's finance team turned over that rock to see what other money flowed through that LLC, they found a ton of other illegal activity.

Looks like he's been around the rodeo a time or two as well:


Prior to joining the SEC in 2009, Khuzami worked as a federal prosecutor for 11 years with the U.S. Attorney's Office for the Southern District of New York. He also worked at Deutsche Bank.
