Clinton Cronies Squeeze Cohen
Ed. The Deep State
continue to take advantage of Jeff Sessions, the weak sister of the Trump
President Donald Trump’s longtime confidant and former personal attorney,” ABC
reported Wednesday, “is likely to cooperate with federal investigators, as
his lawyers are expected to leave the case” for “fee reasons.” That leaves
Cohen staring down the barrel of the Friday deadline for review of more than
3.7 million documents the FBI seized in the April 9 raids of his office and
home. Those documents are in the care of judge Kimba Wood of the Southern
District of New York, a person of considerable interest.
Wood was on Bill
Clinton’s short list for attorney general but after revelations of her
false-documented nanny, the president and First Lady Hillary Clinton, who
insisted that a woman get the job, opted for Janet Reno. In
2013, Kimba Wood presided over the marriage of George Soros to his third wife.
The leftist billionaire gave $10 million to Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign,
making him one of her top donors.
When Special Counsel
Robert Mueller outsourced the Cohen probe to Wood, former Trump adviser
Sebastian Gorka tweeted, “Now she has power over the lawyer who works for the
man who beat Bill’s wife in the 2016 election, WHERE’S THE RECUSAL?” There
was none, and Wood is not the only Clinton crony on the case.
Cohen argued that his
attorneys should get the first look at the materials seized in the raids for
items potentially covered by attorney-client privilege before federal
prosecutors could get to it. Judge Wood instead appointed former federal judge
Barbara Jones to act as a “special master” to conduct the document review.
Jones is a former federal judge nominated
in 1995 by President Clinton, doubtless with the approval of First Lady
As of last week,
Jones had reviewed 300,000 documents and determined that only 162 were covered
by attorney-client privilege. And as ABC also reported, Jones “rejected three
items that Cohen, Trump or the Trump organization had designated as
privileged.” That gives some sense of what the unrepresented Cohen faces on
Friday, and it supports President Trump’s tweet following the raid that
“Attorney-client privilege is dead!”
Today, one day after
Cohen’s attorneys bailed, DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz releases his
long awaited report
on the Clinton email investigation. This report will jostle with FBI-DOJ
stars such as James Comey, General Loretta Lynch, Andrew McCabe, Peter Strzok
and Lisa Page. It’s being billed as a “bombshell,” but the president wonders if
the DOJ, which in effect is investigating itself, will smooth
out any rough edges.
As President Trump
has also noted, former FBI boss Robert Mueller, allegedly a man of great
integrity, has bulked up his team with partisan Democrats and Clinton donors.
In similar style, Trump attorney Michael Cohen finds himself in the hands of
Clinton cronies judge Kimba Wood, also a George Soros groupie, and special
master Barbara Wood.
After the FBI raid on
Cohen’s office and home in April, Alan
Dershowitz wondered how civil libertarians would respond if the FBI raided
the offices of Hillary Clinton. Since she was never elected president, the
Harvard man misses the true parallel.
Imagine that in early
2009 the FBI had raided the offices and home of President
Obama’s personal attorney Bob Bauer, whom the president also named the
attorney of the Democratic Party. Imagine that partisan Republicans and McCain
donors dominated the ensuring investigation, perhaps looking into the
president’s identifying documents and demanding the academic records he had
blocked. The response would amount to civil war.
Meanwhile, as Clinton
cronies shake down Trump attorney Michael Cohen, the Democrats’ chief Russia
Schiff wants Ivanka Trump to testify before the House Intelligence Committee,
along with her husband Jared Kushner. President Trump remains the primary
target, of what is essentially a coup d’état.
In his vision, the
outgoing president picks his successor and commandeers the intelligence, law
enforcement and judicial agencies to make it happen. If voters don’t see it
that way, as Peter Strzok said, there’s an “insurance policy” to make it
transformation now playing out in Washington. As President Trump said of the
Korea summit, “we’ll see what happens.”
