1. A great find by @tracybeanz in the George Papad.apoulos case. Seems that the Mueller Special Counsel team has filed a motion with the court to seal discovery & impose restrictions on what Pdop's defense team can reveal from discovery provided by the DOJ & FBI.
@tracybeanz 2. There a few issues with this that are very telling. For the uninitiated, Discovery is the process where the prosecution & law enforcement are required to hand over any exculpatory evidence that may show the defendant is not guilty of the crime.
#MuellerProbe
@tracybeanz 3. The first problem is that #papadopoulos has already plead guilty to the crime. SO this case should be heading toward sentencing but must now be going backward if the Special Counsel is handing over evidence that may show he is not guilty.
@tracybeanz 4. The only reason for Mueller to have such an order issued by the court is if his team is handing over evidence that the government holds that shows he may not be guilty. Why the sudden reversal? What did Mueller's team find that requires them to derail the case against Pdop?
@tracybeanz 5. The Special Counsel's office must have found evidence that required them to stop the case & initiate discovery. It could not have come from the defense team, because George Papadopoulos waived his right to discovery when he plead guilty. documentcloud.org/documents/4163…
@tracybeanz 6. This is a major admission by #RobertMueller of something irregular with the prosecution of #papadopoulos. Something that forced his team to go to the defense & share information that he may not be guilty of the crime he plead guilty to. To say this is unusual is understatement
@tracybeanz 7. I am sure there are other cases where this has happened but it is extremely rare. In fact, the only other case I can think of is the General Mike Flynn guilty plea. @GenFlynn plead guilty in December, his judge was removed from the case & the new judge ordered discovery.
@tracybeanz @GenFlynn 8. In fact, the Special Counsel asked the court for a similar protective order in that case also. Designed to prevent the defense from publicly sharing the exculpatory information that the Mueller team found & provided. courtlistener.com/docket/6234142…
@tracybeanz @GenFlynn 8. How unusual that the 2 recent cases where discovery has been initiated AFTER a guilty plea have both been in the Mueller case. Why did the #Mueller team find evidence that the people they forced to plead guilty may in fact be innocent?
@tracybeanz @GenFlynn 9. It is starting to look more & more like #MuellerTime is stumbling over the fact that their convictions were achieved while exculpatory evidence was hidden. It also looks like the FBI & DOJ investigations are turning up evidence that someone gamed the system to target them.
@tracybeanz @GenFlynn 10. This could be confirmation that the rumors of falsified @FBI FD-302s (Witness Statements) may have substance. Why else would Mueller's team be finding evidence that shows Flynn & Papadopoulos might be innocent of lying to FBI agents?
@tracybeanz @GenFlynn @FBI 11. Unless Mueller's team has been provided with hard evidence that it was the FBI agents, or former FBI agents, were the ones who were lying. Interesting indeed!
@tracybeanz @GenFlynn Huh, and suddenly Pdop wants to replace his legal team & retract his guilty plea. Must have been some good stuff in that discovery!

Seems the New Yorker had a panel about Trump Inc. this weekend, including Felix Sater. At one time he was the Democrats prime suspect in Russian collusion, until they realized he was an undercover asset. He worked for FBI, DIA, & CIA! One of Trump's many employee FBI assets.
Buzzfeed did a pretty good article on Sater about 6 months ago. The links in that article are even more valuable as they go to specific operations & documents that show Sater's activity. Like spying on North Korea's nuclear supply chain. buzzfeednews.com/article/anthon…
And that is just the operations the DOJ admits to! All while working for Trump to line up mobsters & Russian spies who kept getting indicted!

Not what I was hoping for but it looks like some more interesting breadcrumbs. More GRU hacking incidents & targets, many related to Olympic doping test facilities & the chemical weapons labs testing samples from UK & Syria. justice.gov/opa/documents-…
Of biggest interest to me is the hacking of Westinghouse Electric, nuclear fuel supplier to Ukraine & other countries. The prosecutors were unwilling to discuss anything not spelled out in the indictment, which means not much. Two main priorities seem likely for the Russians.
Westinghouse was expanding Ukrainian nuclear power capacity. So 1 priority could have been to keep Ukraine dependent on Russian oil & natural gas to allow the Russians to exert leverage over them. So disrupting that relationship or operation may have been a Russian focus.

Josoph Mifsud's lawyer has written a cease & desist letter to @ScottMStedman. In it, Stephan Roh makes a couple of interesting claims. Starting with denying his role as a 'Russian agent' & making clear intent to sue for that false & defamatory allegation. #Spygate
@ScottMStedman Even more interesting is his claim that Joseph Mifsud is a Western intelligence agent & was directed by that agency (believed to be MI6) to introduce @GeorgePapa19 to a Russian. He has also been directed to remain quiet about the incident at this time!
@ScottMStedman @GeorgePapa19 Stedman has a thread about it but believes it is another Russian plot by Stephan Roh. He has no clue, the plot was to frame Pdop for contacts w/ Western intel agents pretending to be Russian agents. Agents were outed by Dems when they found no Russians.

How blind can folks be, this is all you need to know! Rosenstein said all this to McCabe, knowing that someone was already secretly recording the President in the WH. RR was setting up McCabe, & McCabe took the bait writing the memos as blackmail material. cnbc.com/2018/09/21/ros…
Remember what I've said the purpose of the slow roll out is? To get the conspirators on the record under oath telling their lies, reveal a little evidence & force them to change their stories. It then requires them to produce evidence (like McCabe's memos) to back their new lies.
Each round of sunlight, causes another alibi to be destroyed. And so far, the conspirators have been forced to reveal new incriminating evidence first to try & get their spin out first. They can't wait for the declassifications, the unredactions, they have to confess & spin.

ABC claiming the FBI started a Counterintelligence Investigation of @carterwpage in January 2016, also claiming that is when he joined the Trump Campaign. Both conflict with past information. They don't mention that Page provided the bugs to catch the Russian spies.
@carterwpage Steele, on the payroll of Putin's Oligarch Oleg Deripaska, contacted Bruce Ohr, who was providing tips on US DOJ actions against reputed Mobster Oleg Deripaska to Steele. Winer was for many years a FARA registered agent for Russian corporate interests.

Seems everyone in the press knew Peter Strzok was removed from the SC team by 8/16/17.
Seems the @NYT knew that Greg Craig was a focus of the Manafort investigation on 9/7/17. Interesting.
Now this is an interesting string of rumors the press heard. That an agent quit the SC team & filed an affidavit against Andrew Weissman for leaking grand jury info to AP! That meeting, if there was only one, was before the Special Counsel was appointed.
