Democrats are in serious scramble mode after pre-release of the Mueller Report. And you can bet the most powerful Democrats now look for scapegoats.
Every Democrat in DC involved even tangentially with the Russia investigation farce shakes in their baby seal-lined leather boots. Because heads must roll.
Mueller found nothing on Trump. Therefore, the obvious next step suggests to look at how this witch hunt started. In order to stave off the horde for as long as possible, Democrats must begin offering sacrifices.
Thus, according to Fox News we have the Democrats’ first victim:
Former Obama White House Counsel and Clinton-linked attorney Greg Craig may soon be charged by the Justice Department for engaging in illegal unregistered overseas lobbying, in a case initially probed by Special Counsel Robert Mueller — a development that would make him the first Democrat to face prosecution amid the long-running Russia investigation.
I give you the first sacrificial lamb. Indeed Craig is being led to slaughter. And you can bet this was carefully explained to him beforehand.
Milked for all their worth, both Manafort and Craig have closer ties to the Obama White House and the Clintons than they do to Trump. And Craig especially lies in the epicenter of the scandal.
The case centers on lobbying work that Craig performed in 2012 for the Russian-backed president of Ukraine, Viktor Yanukovych, while Craig was a partner at the law firm Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom. Craig allegedly never registered as a foreign agent under a U.S. law known as the Foreign Agents Registration Act, or FARA, which requires lobbyists to declare publicly if they represent foreign leaders, governments or their political parties.
FARA violations were rarely prosecuted until Mueller took aim at Paul Manafort, President Trump’s former campaign chairman, for his lobbying work in Ukraine. Manafort, who connected Craig with Yanukovych, has been convicted on numerous bank and tax fraud charges, and was separately accused of FARA violations as well. He was sentenced earlier this month to approximately seven years in prison.
Craig left Skadden last year as his work with Manafort became public. In January, Skadden agreed to cooperate with the DOJ’s registration requirements and paid $4.6 million in a settlement to avoid a criminal prosecution. “We have learned much from this incident and are taking steps to prevent anything similar from happening again,” the firm said in a statement at the time.
In advance, Democrats negotiated his plea deal in an attempt to buy more time.
Craig is the first of many Democrats who will do the perp walk. And Democrats will start at the bottom and go up.
They use this tactic to know how much scorched earth they need to satisfy a blood-thirsty public. After all, taxpayers funded the witch hunt that costs millions. Now, somebody must pay.
So, up and down the entire food chain Democrats prepare their bug-out bags. And with good reason.
While many Conservatives continue to believe justice will not be served, understand that President Trump thinks otherwise. He sees the outcome of the Mueller Report as his next Colin Kaepernick moment. Frankly, no better time exists for him to rub in what he professed almost two years ago: Hillary Clinton should be investigated.
From the moment of Manafort’s indictment, President Trump called foul.
ABC commented of the video:
The president tweeted, “NO COLLUSION!” and White House press secretary Sarah Sanders downplayed the role of the campaign adviser who took a guilty plea.
Oddly, despite the Mueller report, democrats vow the Russian investigation isn’t over. They’re dedicated to finding something to pin on the President. So far, his ultimate crime- knowing the truth about Crooked Hillary.
