A curious recusal in the sentencing of Michael Flynn could be an indicator of something very big happening
Something very strange, and
possibly extremely significant, happened yesterday, with no explanation and
little notice from the media. But two different writers for the same
DC-insider publication rushed to be the first to note this barely-noticed move,
suggesting that they know something big is happening.
To my deep sorrow, the skills of a
Kremlinologist – the people who specialized in interpreting small signs, such
as who stood next to whom reviewing military parades in Red Square, to figure
out the real power structure within the secretive upper ranks of the USSR – are
necessary to figure out what is going on in the Deep State attempts to take
down the Trump presidency. The two writers rushing to be the first to break the
story work for Politico, the publication that specializes in DC insidership.
They rushed to be the first to note the case of the curious recusal.
First was Sean Davis, whose tweet went up at 5:23 PM yesterday:
If we put on our Kremlinologist hats,
“nobody knows why” translates to “Something big could be happening!” and
implying “I was the first to note it.”
A mere 15 minutes later, his
colleague at Politico, Josh
Gerstein, published an article on that site with more background, but no
explanation of why:
Judge Emmet Sullivan
was randomly assigned to take over the case after Judge Rudolph Contreras
recused himself. (snip)
Judge Rudolph Contreras
Sullivan is an
appointee of President Bill Clinton, and Contreras was appointed by President
When it comes to assembling evidence,
creating timelines, and inferring what is really going on beneath the veneer
the public is allowed to see, nobody is better than Sundance of Conservative
As soon as CTH saw the name Judge
Rudolph Contreras our spidey sense alarm bells began ringing. You know
Judge Rudolph Contreras is one of a very small
group of FISA Court Judges. –LINK–
My instincts tell me
that Judge Contreras was most likely the judge who signed off on the FISA
warrant that led to the surveillance of Donald Trump’s campaign officials, that
included National Security Advisor General Michael Flynn.
It would be EXPLOSIVE
if it turned out that the FISA warrants were gained by deception, misleading
information, manipulated information, or fraud…. and that warrant led to the
wiretapping and surveillance of General Michael Flynn was authorized by
Contreras…. who would now be the judge in Flynn’s case.
Yes, the conflict of
interest would be beyond stunning.
That FISA warrant, of course, is the
potential Rosetta Stone of the suspected plot to surveil the Trump campaign for
president. Spying on the opposition by using the most feared surveillance
capacity in the world, provided by US taxpayers. And, it is reasonably
suspected (but not proven because everything is under wraps) that the bogus
“dossier” produced by Fusion GPS with the help of Russian sources was used to
obtain a FISA Court warrant to use the NSA’s universal surveillance of
electronic communications to “unmask” first Carter Page, and subsequently an
unknown number of staffers in the Trump campaign.
In a lengthy post eslewhere,
Sundance laid out the timeline and inferences about how the FISA warrant was
obtained after first being rejected by the FISA Court (something that happens
very rarely). I will not attempt to summarize it here, but a key figure (and
White Hat) is Admiral Mike Rogers.
The Inspector General of the DOJ
currently is investigating these matters, and his report, expected early next
year, may answer all these questions. Or it may not.
So we are left with straws in the
wind, and our suspicions.
If and when the details are exposed
and prove out Sundance’s (and my) suspicions, this will make Watergate look
like the “third rate burglary” it was characterized as by President Nixon’s allies.
A sitting president and his candidate to succeed him weaponizing the nation’s
intelligence agencies to sabotage the opposition. You cannot exaggerate the
magnitude of the consequences.
