Mueller's Mystery Case Empty
PostSubject: Mueller's Mystery Case   Mueller's Mystery Case EmptyFri Dec 28, 2018 7:39 am

Much ink (proverbial) has been spilled about a secret under-seal indictment by Mueller's SCO against a "corporation owned by a foreign government."  This firm is being compelled to turn over documents related to the indictment, and has fast-tracked an appeal to SCOTUS.  Chief Justice Roberts just granted a stay until December 31 to see if the Court wants to interevene.

I'm betting the "firm" is VEB bank and the "country" is Russia, and/or Deutschebank and Germany, both of which were instrumental in Trump's failed attempt to build a tower in Moscow.  If true, this case goes to the heart of the Russian collusion case.

We should see how John Roberts swings on the Trump impeachment by next week!

More on this case.  Supposedly something was supposed to happen two days ago, but I've not been able to find any indication anything has.

We may hear something tomorrow.

Not the Ritz-Carlton.  Must be the VEB bank and Mueller must be seeking records dealing with its transactions with the Trump organization.  He probably already has Donald's end of the transactions, scooped up when the FBI raided Michael Cohen's offices.

VEB would of course resist the release because they're heavily involved with Russian mafia, drug-money and black marketeering.  And their ties to Putin.

In 2010, Alex Shnaider sold half of his ownership in the Zaporizhstal steel mill to buyers financed by VEB, who were then themselves acquired by VEB.[7] Shnaider used proceeds from the sale to partly meet cost overruns at his Toronto Trump Tower.[7]

In 2016, Evgeny Buryakov, who posed as a banker in VEB's Manhattan office and who attempted to recruit Trump advisor Carter Page, pleaded guilty in U.S. district court to having acted as a secret agent of the Russian Foreign Intelligence Service.[7][28] Buryakov's lawyers were paid by VEB.[7]

In December 2016 the current president of VEB, Sergey Gorkov, met with senior Trump advisor and son-in-law of President Trump Jared Kushner.

Or try this on for size.

Maybe Mueller's Mystery Case has nothing to do with a foreign government, or foreign corporation. Maybe what the SOC was consulting with SCOTUS on in private was what to do when an entire administration is thrown out of office for high crimes. Maybe Mueller's trying to limit the nuclear fallout from a Pelosi presidency?

Huh. Government lawyers in court today admitted that this mystery case is "still continuing robustly" even though supposedly Mueller's SOC has finished its work and turned in its report.

So... who is the mystery government? Who is the mystery corporation? What does this case refer to, if it's not the Russia collusion investigation?

Indictments filed against Deutschebank today for money laundering with the Trump Organization.
