Mueller and fake news charges against Manafort

Mueller and fake news charges against Manafort

by Jon Rappoport

October 30, 2017

Here we go. Special counsel Mueller and his team have filed the first federal charges against Trump-campaign officials Paul Manafort and Rick Gates.


Other press outlets are following suit, emphasizing the “conspiracy against the US.”

CNN writes: “The indictment against the Manafort and Gates contains 12 counts: conspiracy against the United States, conspiracy to launder money, unregistered agent of a foreign principal, false and misleading US Foreign Agents Registration Act (FARA) statements, false statements, and seven counts of failure to file reports of foreign bank and financial accounts.”

—But here is the real takeaway, and of course MSM outlets are ignoring it: the conspiracy charge is a piece of federal boilerplate. Alongside the basket of other charges mentioned above, conspiracy is a general category that is tacked on. It isn’t a specific singular charge. It definitely isn’t “these two men conspired with Russia to hand Trump the election.”

In fact, CNN adds: “The charges do not cover any activities related to the campaign, though it’s possible Mueller could add additional charges.”

But when MSM outlets blare “conspiracy against the United States,” most readers and viewers will assume this does mean a charge of working with Russia to make Trump president.

It’s a nice little devious trick.

Of course, the Mueller indictments are also being used to blot out the Clinton Uranium One scandal and the Trump dirty dossier scandal, both of which involve the Clintons, and Mueller as well, since he was the head of the FBI when the Bureau discovered all sorts of corruption and bribery involving Russia’s nuclear industry, during Uranium One negotiations, and either failed to disclose the findings, or failed to use them to make an impact on Obama.

Today, it’s all about “conspiracy against the United States,” and the mainstream news audience who thinks and comprehends and talks in terms of vague generalities—like thirsty travelers in the desert spotting the mirage of an oasis.


That and $2.75 will get you a ride on the New York Subway.

In case you haven’t read my piece on the Clintons and the Uranium One scandal—which most definitely DOES connect Bill and Hillary to corrupt dealings with the Russians, and which hasn’t been “debunked,” as MSM outlets keep insisting, here it is:

—Cue the dawn sunrise and violins for the beautiful first couple of American politics (the Clintons).

But what about the uranium scandal?

The what?

Before I quote a NY Times piece on this—suppose, just suppose the beautiful first couple, Bill and Hillary, have been running a parallel operation to the government, in the form of a Foundation that is taking in major chunks of cash from people who want (and get) serious political favors.

Well, current news stories confirm that. We already know that.

But uranium?

Consider this plot line. Follow the bouncing ball.

Putin wants 20% of uranium on US soil. That 20% is already owned by a Canadian mining company.

The Canadian executives want to sell it to Putin.

But because uranium is a US “national security” product, various US federal agencies have to OK the deal. One of those agencies is the US State Department.

The State Department is headed up by Hillary Clinton. Her Department says yes to the uranium deal.

The kicker? Those Canadian mining executives, who wanted the sale to Putin to go through, donated millions to the Clinton Foundation.

Getting the picture?

On April 23, 2015, the NY Times ran a story under the headline: Cash Flowed to Clinton Foundation Amid Russian Uranium Deal.

The bare bones of the story: a Canadian company called Uranium One controlled a great deal of uranium production in the US. It was sold to Russia (meaning Putin and his minions). So Putin now controls 20% of US uranium production.

From the Times: “…the sale gave the Russians control of one-fifth of all uranium production capacity in the United States.”

The Times: “The [Pravda] article, in January 2013, detailed how the Russian atomic energy agency, Rosatom, had taken over a Canadian company [Uranium One] with uranium-mining stakes stretching from Central Asia to the American West. The deal made Rosatom one of the world’s largest uranium producers and brought Mr. Putin closer to his goal of controlling much of the global uranium supply chain.”

“But the untold story behind that story is one that involves not just the Russian president, but also a former American president and a woman who would like to be the next one.”

“At the heart of the tale are several men, leaders of the Canadian mining industry, who have been major donors to the charitable endeavors of former President Bill Clinton and his family. Members of that group built, financed and eventually sold off to the Russians a company that would become known as Uranium One.”

“Frank Giustra…a mining financier, has donated $31.3 million to the foundation run by former President Bill Clinton…”

“Since uranium is considered a strategic asset, with implications for national security, the deal [to sell Uranium One to Putin] had to be approved by a committee composed of representatives from a number of United States government agencies. Among the agencies that eventually signed off was the State Department, then headed by Mr. Clinton’s wife, Hillary Rodham Clinton.”

“As the Russians gradually assumed control of Uranium One in three separate transactions from 2009 to 2013, Canadian records show, a flow of cash made its way to the Clinton Foundation. Uranium One’s chairman used his family foundation to make four donations totaling $2.35 million. Those contributions were not publicly disclosed by the Clintons, despite an agreement Mrs. Clinton had struck with the Obama White House to publicly identify all donors. Other people with ties to the company made donations as well.”

“And shortly after the Russians announced their intention to acquire a majority stake in Uranium One, Mr. Clinton received $500,000 for a Moscow speech from a Russian investment bank with links to the Kremlin that was promoting Uranium One stock.”

If you’re Putin and you’re sitting in Moscow, and the uranium deal has just dropped this bonanza into your lap, what’s your reaction—after you stop laughing and popping champagne corks? Or maybe you never really stop laughing. Maybe this is a joke that keeps on giving. You wake up in the middle of the night with a big grin plastered on your face, and you can’t figure out why…and then you remember, oh yeah, the uranium deal. The US uranium. Who’s running the show in America? Ha-ha-ha. Some egregious dolt? Maybe he’s a sleeper agent we forgot about and he reactivated himself. And this Clinton Foundation—how can the beautiful couple get away with that? Can we give Hillary a medal? Can we put up a statue of her in a park? Does Bill need any more hookers?

You shake your head and go back to sleep. You see a parade of little boats carrying uranium from the US to Russia. A pretty line of putt-putt boats. You chuckle. Row, row, row your boat…merrily, merrily, merrily, merrily…life is but a dream.

Good times.

Final note: there is a great deal of difference between a major outlet like the NY Times running their Clinton/uranium piece for one day—and pounding on it for weeks and months. In the latter case, they would let loose the hounds, who would probe and push and interview relevant people and get confessions and parlay those confessions up the food chain—blowing the story into an enormous scandal—which it is.

The Times had its hands on a volcanic piece…and they let it drop. Because the ceiling and the limit had been reached. The Times basically executed what’s called a limited hangout, a partial exposure of a story that was getting too hot to suppress entirely.

The limited hangout allows the venting of steam—and then nothing more. In this case, the Clinton camp denies there was any quid pro quo, they assert Hillary had nothing to do with the uranium deal, and the curtain falls.

Thus you have the reality which the major media did expose, vs. the reality they could have exposed. The “could have” part would have changed current history—but it was squelched, and put under wraps.

Tossed on the junk heap.

—end of my 2016 article—

Now, the Senate Judiciary Committee and Chairman Chuck Grassley are looking into these crimes, because new reports of corruption are surfacing:

FOX News: “The Hill reported that the FBI had evidence as early as 2009 that Russian operatives used bribes, kickbacks and other dirty tactics to expand Moscow’s atomic energy footprint in the U.S. — but the Obama administration approved the uranium deal benefiting Moscow anyway.”

“Grassley on Wednesday [raised]…the question of whether the [US government] committee that approved the [uranium] transaction [in 2010] was aware of the FBI probe. The Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS) [which approved the uranium deal] included then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.”

As Newsweek reports, that early FBI probe was launched under FBI Director Robert Mueller. Mueller is now trying to dig up (or invent) every tidbit he can about Russian collusion with…Trump in the 2016 presidential election. My, my.

Newsweek contacted the FBI a few days ago, asking whether Mueller had informed the Obama White House about his old FBI probe that uncovered Russian corruption relevant to the uranium deal that was being put together at the time.

Newsweek: “The FBI said it had no comment to Newsweek questions about whether Mueller alerted senior Obama administration officials, including Clinton, about the [FBI] investigation before they brokered the [uranium] deal.”

BOOM. Are you kidding? No comment? That’s tantamount to admitting, “Look, either way we answer that question, we’re screwed or the Obama White House is screwed, so we’re remaining mum. We’re protecting VERY IMPORTANT PEOPLE and the truth doesn’t matter.”


However, the FBI refusal is buried deep in mainstream stories.

But wait, it gets even better:

FOX: “[Grassley] is calling for the Justice Department to lift an apparent ‘gag order’ on an FBI informant who reportedly helped the U.S. uncover a [2009-10] corruption and bribery scheme by Russian nuclear officials but allegedly was ‘threatened’ by the Obama administration to stay quiet.”

“Victoria Toensing, a lawyer for the former FBI informant, told Fox News’ ‘America’s Newsroom’ that her client has ‘specific information about [Russian] contributions and bribes to various entities and people in the United States’.”

“She said she could not go further because her client has not been released from a nondisclosure agreement but suggested the gag order could be lifted soon. [It was lifted a few days ago.] Toensing also claimed that her client was ‘threatened by the Loretta Lynch Justice Department’ when he pursued a civil action in which he reportedly sought to disclose some information about the case.”

The gag order and the non-disclosure agreement are nonsense. They don’t apply when enforcing them would cover up a major crime.

I have suggestions for the FBI informant’s lawyer Toensing, if she’s playing it straight.

Hire at least four top-flight private security firms to guard your client around the clock, and hope these firms don’t have strong ties to government law-enforcement.

Issue a firm declaration from your client stating he is in good health and has no intention of committing suicide.

Do these things yesterday.

After all, it’s the Clintons we’re talking about, and Obama and the FBI.

And the Clintons.

And, of course, the Clintons.

    The Headlines are the Strawman here: “Conspiracy against the U.S.” You may or may not know the U.S. is a total different CORPORATE entity than America, herself. It is not Conspiracy against America but rather the “U.S”. It will put things in a different perspective once you research this and understand this basic principal.

  2. Tommy Tunes says:

    Hey spread this around Special Counsel Bob Mueller and the FBI need to investigate this too !!!!!
    WOW: Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton appeared on Fox & Friends on Fox News discussing new bombshell revelations that — in addition to the Clinton campaign helping fund the dodgy Trump Dossier — former President Barack Obama’s campaign itself also paid nearly a million dollars to the law firm that was funding Fusion GPS (the firm that hired Christopher Steele to put the dossier together). Judicial Watch believes the American people deserve to know what President Obama knew about the Trump Dossier & what his involvement was.

    One of the best comment on this article:

    Donald J. Trump ✔@realDonaldTrump:

    Sorry, but this is years ago, before Paul Manafort was part of the Trump campaign. But why aren’t Crooked Hillary & the Dems the focus????? ..Also, there is NO COLLUSION!

    Or enter “justice with judge Jeanine Pirro 10/28/17 CLINTON CORRUPTION, RUSSIA” in the search box.

    There’s no way in HELL that this treasonous act by the Obama administration/Hillary Clinton State Department is going to disappear down the memory hole.

    Hmm, I’m getting a whiff of Hillary… DNC… and….. and JUST A HINT of AIPAC.

    OH PUKE! Hillary’s off limits…MSM claims it’s a crime to investigate her ties to Russia

    As the public has finally began to realize the extent of the corruption surrounding Hillary Clinton, including the now infamous Russia Uranium One deal, the mainstream media has gone into hyper-drive to discredit and distract from documented facts and are now going as far as to float the idea that Trump may be committing a crime for simply investigation Clinton at all.
    That’s right, in the sick world of the establishment media, Trump is committing a criminal act by even considering an investigation into shady Clinton dealings with the Russians. After all, she is above the law right?
    Even more disgusting, the so-called reporters spewing this nonsense…..

    If Putin had wanted to control the outcome of the US election it would seem he would favor Hillary. She could/ would sell him more uranium and who knows what else. Didn’t Bill have something to do with giving China computer technology? Why are we seeing her everywhere lately? I don’t want to read her statement about anything until it’s released from her prison cell.

      Hi there L. Sturm:

      Quote: Didn’t Bill have something to do with giving China computer technology? Didn’t Bill have something to do with giving China computer technology?

      Remember John Malchase David Shalikashvili? He died July 23, 2011. Former US Army General who also served as Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff and Supreme Allied Commander from 1993 to 1997.

      Not sure if it’s on this link or another one or a livestream broadcast concerning Shali’s trip to China

      I don’t know if they archive broadcasts. /abeldanger

      When I read it or heard it, I clearly remember thinking – Damn, that’s treason!

      AD reported General Shalikashvili’s parting comments were: “My President requested I leave these files with you”. /watch?v=Ga6B2uP-9fE

    Hi Tom: So glad to note you also read. The original unincorporated government [united with a small u] united States of America is still standing and filed a $279 Trillion lien, that has now been cured against the private corporations that caused and enabled the following:

    While we slept, the Money Mobsters gradually migrated the Offices to their unlawful government. The people that occupied the Offices were not told, or if they knew, kept their mouth shut as they had families to care for.

    The big event was Lincoln’s bankruptcy and his unlawful General Order #100 known as the Lieber Code shifting the country to Military Rule under the Grand Army of the Republic. There was no Civil War. Congress never declared one and no Peace Treaty was signed after. It was a private foreign mercenary action that began on our shores. Reconstruction followed. All of it was a fraud and unlawful.

    I thoroughly enjoy Jon’s writings (The Matrix, blog, the other one…sorry, it slipped my mind this minute – long day, traffic wears me out) and his consistency being “spot on”. Tonight on the long drive home, I finally figured out why he nails it.

    Jon trained as an artist many years ago…he knows, and he knows that he knows, artists see things other’s miss. You can’t publish what I’m writing as it freaks some of the public out who never noticed something was wrong. They have no foundation to build on. Many who did notice began research, found it upsetting and stopped. Some never made any effort whatsoever to read and learn the True history of the world. What I admire about Jon’s writing is the way he presents the Truth in a marvelous style providing me belly laughs and cracks me up.

    If a picture’s worth a thousand words, check this out. Use a computer to enlarge so you can read all of it.

    Obama’s 2015 bankruptcy of THE UNITED STATES (Inc.) Chapter 7, Liquidation is still in progress resulting in another bankruptcy May 1, 2017, THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA (Inc.) Chapter 11, Reorganization.

    Catherine Austin Fitts just gave an interview with Dark Journalist. She discusses with Daniel the $65,000 stolen from ever American man, woman and child, plus the missing trillions over the years in “undocumented adjustments”.

  9. Zip-ped-e-doda says:


    While we slept AFTER Lincoln’s unlawful occupation of an office our Constitution prohibited him from holding since he held the title of “Esquire”, a foreign emolument, the Money Mobsters gradually migrated the unincorporated lawful Offices of the original American government to their unlawful private corporate government created from bankruptcy. The people that occupied the unincorporated Offices were not told, or if they knew, kept their mouth shut as they had families to care for.

    With all the deaths, devastation, confusion and destruction from the mercenary action they called war, it was easy for the Money Mobsters to shelter their unlawful criminal fraud by compartmentalization; “the need to know” coining the phrase “Honest Abe” so the public wouldn’t be suspicious.

    This same pattern of coining words repeated after JFK’s assignation when the CIA invented the term “conspiracy theorist” to label those who disagreed with the Warren Report. This would marginalized those who disagreed so they would be ignored.

    Most people never give a thought to look up the true definition of the word “conspiracy”. The psychopath parasites laugh at our ignorance while they continue committing more frauds. There is no statute of limitations on fraud. Fraud vitiates everything that follows.

    Jon’s Matrix collection will teach you how to think. If you don’t want to learn, think of your children/grand children as this will NEVER be taught in government schools. His other publication I couldn’t recall last evening is: Outside the Reality Machine. I will refrain from commenting late evenings when I’m tired.

    This story was never really covered by the main stream media, but it now may gain some traction since my Senator Grassley and his committee is checking into it.
