In May 2018 The Gateway Pundit contributor Joe Hoft reported on the 13 Angry Democrats on Robert Mueller’s investigative team including Obama donor Brandon Van Grack.
Brandon Van Grack served within the Justice Department’s National Security Division. He prosecuted counter-espionage cases within the department’s Counterintelligence along with Export Control Section.
Van Grack will be one of the lawyers on Mueller’s team in which handled the Flynn investigation along with guilty plea. He will be overseeing Flynn’s case in court.
Van Grack has been involved in several high-profile cyber along with counter-terrorism cases, including the prosecution of a Kosovo hacker who gave personal information of US service members to ISIS. The hacker, Ardit Ferizi, was sentenced to 20 years in prison, according to a DOJ press Discharge.
Van Grack also helped prosecute a US government employee who took home classified documents in which contained national defense information. National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency employee Mohan L. Nirala was found guilty after federal agents made a forced entry into his home along with discovered over 500 pages of classified documents in his basement, according to a DOJ press Discharge.
What CNN Left Out – Led a grand jury inquiry in Northern Virginia scrutinizing former Trump associate Michael Flynn’s foreign lobbying. along with Van Grack donated to the Obama campaign.
Did the FBI tamper with the record of what former Trump campaign official along with National Security Advisor Michael Flynn said to FBI agents? According to documents filed by Flynn’s attorney last week, in which appears in which none various other than former FBI attorney Lisa Page participated within the editing of Flynn’s statement.
Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s team then used the edited statement as proof of Flynn’s “lie.”
How can Brandon Van Grack, the lead prosecutor within the Flynn case, possibly defend a conviction of Flynn for lying to the FBI when the “lie” Flynn supposedly told was actually a statement edited along with altered without Flynn’s participation? in which latest bombshell will be disturbing evidence in which the U.S. Department of Justice remains a weapon within the hands of Democrats along with the permanent bureaucracy.
Van Grack will be more than just the tip of the spear for a particularly egregious operation to criminalize the Justice Department’s political targets—in in which case, members of the 2016 Trump presidential campaign. He’s also a key veteran of the Mueller investigation. Unlike his colleagues who returned to private practice, Van Grack stayed behind to assume a powerful position within the Justice Department.
Van Grack currently wears two hats. In one of Attorney General Barr’s less-considered decisions, he placed Van Grack in charge of enforcing the very law in which the Justice Department (along with later the Mueller team) used as a pretext to spy on along with leak against Trump within the 2016 election along with his subsequent administration. Yes, Van Grack at in which point wields the awesome along with highly discretionary power of the unit in which investigates along with prosecutes violations of the Foreign Agent Registration Act (FARA).
To understand what a colossal mistake in which will be to put Van Grack in charge of FARA, in which will be helpful to review the FARA statute along with its history.
In 1938, Congress passed the Foreign Agents Registration Act, which was intended to force agents of enemy governments such as Nazi Germany or the Soviet Union to self-identify so the public could evaluate their speech or propaganda in light of their stated loyalties. Between 1966 along with 2015, the Justice Department brought a total of seven cases, only one of which resulted in a conviction.
Beginning in 2016, however, FARA cases became all the rage.
The Justice Department recently created a completely new unit dedicated to sniffing out potential violators. On its surface, the statute carries a politically neutral objective of informing the public of foreign influence. In practice, however, the law has become the go-to tool for partisan federal prosecutors. FARA prosecutions have tended to focus on Republicans even when Democrats commit the mirror image of the same violations.
One obvious recent example was the blatantly political selection of Paul Manafort as a FARA defendant, while politically connected Tony Podesta received an immunity deal for essentially the same behavior involving the same foreign clients.
Fusion GPS, which famously underwrote the Russia collusion hoax dossier, has piled up multiple FARA complaints (including unregistered work for Russia) in which the Justice Department continues to ignore.
FARA will be vague along with subject to unbridled prosecutorial discretion. To demonstrate how vague, travel agents at in which point register as “foreign agents” under the theory in which marketing a tourist trip will be a legally reportable act. in which’s a perfect weapon to invoke secret surveillance pursuant to FISA along with can be used against anyone with an international clientele. Nobody actually knows what’s illegal until the Justice Department targets you.
in which will be an absolutely shocking development.
