Senate Intel Report and Criminal Referrals of Donald Trump Jr., Jared Kushner & Steve Bannon
…from Glenn Kirschner, and Justice Matters
[ Editor’s Note: Trump and Barr are building a growing pile of obstruction of justice charges for their record of getting rid of Federal US Attorneys investigating Donald’s cohorts and even family. What makes this so mind blowing is that it came out of a Republican controlled Senate Intel committee. Color me amazed!
Kirschner will review below how his former boss at the DC office was maneuvered out of her job while she was working on criminal referrals of Donald Trump, Jared Kushner, and Steve Bannon.
These are believed to be for, among other things, false testimony to Congress, one of the favored tools by prosecutors, as lying in Washington is a national sport once you reach a level where you feel you have the elevated status of being a ‘protected entity’.
Where the worm could turn on the Trump team is if they lose in November. The new Attorney General and DC US Attorney can pick them right back up and possibly include Mr. Barr in the bunch.
Glenn has a knack for laying out these prosecution cases, and there seems to be a pool of talent, possibly retired US Attorneys, ready to go if the new administration wants to clean up the politicization of the Justice Department under Trump and Barr… Jim W. Dean ]
– First aired … August 19, 2020 –
We recently learned that the Republican controlled Senate Intelligence Committee made criminal referrals of Donald Trump Jr., Jared Kushner, Steve Bannon, Erik Prince and Sam Clovis to the US Attorney’s Office for the District of Columbia (my former professional home for nearly a quarter of a century).
We know that criminal charges have not been brought against those men, who are alleged to have deceived, mislead or lied to the Senate Intel Committee. This casts in a new light the efforts of Trump and Barr to oust former US Attorney Jessie Liu and install a Barr lackey named Tim Shea.
Recall that upon his arrival at the DC USAO, Shea immediately went about dramatically reducing the sentencing recommendation for Roger Stone and attempting to tank the Mike Flynn case.
We are now left to speculate as to whether Shea did yet another favor (though) for Donald Trump by killing the investigations into his son, his son-in-law and the others who were referred for criminal investigation. The good news is that those criminal referrals can and must be given a fresh look beginning in January.
