Palmer Report: Donald Trump tips off that he knows Robert Mueller is going to get him on financial crimes

Anyone who has been paying close attention has long known that Special Counsel Robert Mueller is investigating Donald Trump for everything from obstruction of justice to conspiring with the Russians to rig the election. The bigger question has been whether Mueller would also investigate Trump’s long history of criminal financial deals. As per usual, Mueller has given no hint. However, Trump tipped off today that he knows Mueller is coming for his finances.

Today, the Trump Organization officially pulled the plug on the Trump Soho hotel, announcing that it’s severing its financial relationship with the hotel, and that the “Trump” name will quickly be removed from the property. This is far from the first time in which Trump has walked away from an underperforming property. But this one is different. Of all the shady business deals Trump and his family have made over the decades, Trump Soho might be the dirtiest. It was arranged through a man named Felix Sater, who had been convicted for among other crimes money laundering in relation to the Russian mafia.

It’s not difficult to see where this is going. Donald Trump is walking away from Trump Soho because he (or one of his kids or handlers, or whoever is calling the shots at this point) has figured out that the property is one of his greatest criminal liabilities. This comes just days after Trump announced that he’s shutting down his legally-troubled charitable foundation. That’s not a coincidence, and it’s far from the last shady financial venture that Trump will lop off from his empire as he tries to insulate himself from what he knows is coming.

The trouble for Donald Trump: by now it’s too late. This is the equivalent of a speeder slowing down afterbeing spotted by the police car. Not only did Trump just tip off that he knows Robert Mueller is investigating his financial crimes, he also tipped off that he thinks Mueller is going to get him for it.

Palmer Report: Donald Trump tells Ivanka and Jared Kushner to move back to New York

This summer, shortly after it was first revealed that Jared Kushner had secretly met with the Russian Ambassador and the head of a Russian bank during the transition period, he and Ivanka Trump floated a story to the press indicating that they had been considering moving back to New York anyway. That never did happen. But now the idea of them moving back home is being floated again and this time it’s coming from Donald Trump.

Donald Trump and his allies are now clearly trying to pin the firing of FBI Director James Comey on Jared Kushner. Several people close to Trump are now telling the media that they witnessed Kushner pushing Trump to fire Comey in the hope of making the Trump-Russia investigation go away, which would constitute obstruction of justice. But the real bombshell is buried in the very last paragraph of a new Vanity Fair profile (link), which reveals that Trump wants his daughter and son-in-law to leave the White House and move back home.

Even more notably, Kushner’s camp is now making sure the media knows that Trump is telling him and Ivanka to go home. Trump is telling Jared and Ivanka that they should abandon the White House because their reputations are “being damaged by negative press,” according to that same Vanity Fair profile. If Trump has merely been bluffing them on this, it appears Kushner is now calling that bluff.

So what now? Donald Trump is clearly trying to scapegoat Jared Kushner in the hope of protecting himself from obstruction of justice charges. Kushner has reportedly been cooperating with Special Counsel Robert Mueller by giving him documents relating Comey’s firing. Now we know that Trump is telling Jared (and Ivanka) to get out of his White House and move back to New York, and Jared is running to the press to tattle on him for it. Will they stay or will they go? This might be the worst episode of Family Feud ever, and as the criminal probe continues, it’s just getting started.

Palmer Report: Robert Muellers grand jury against Michael Flynn just got even weirder

Now that Special Counsel Robert Mueller has arrested three different Donald Trump advisers for their roles in the Trump-Russia scandal, the public has begun asking why Michael Flynn hasn’t yet been arrested as well. He’s accused of seemingly every crime under the sun. Last week it was revealed that Flynn is also facing conspiracy to commit kidnapping charges. If you think it can’t get any weirder than that, it just did.

Mueller is now investigating Michael Flynn’s business partner for secretly hiring a journalist to produce a documentary promoting the interests of Turkey (link), as part of his mounting grand jury case against Flynn. Simply hiring someone to produce a documentary isn’t illegal. But it appears to have been part of the Flynn Intel Group’s work for the government of Turkey as illegally unregistered foreign agents. It’s doubtful that Mueller cares about the antics of Flynn’s business partner one way or the other; this is instead an attempt at getting him to flip on Flynn.

This is merely the latest sign of just how much evidence Mueller is amassing against Michael Flynn, in what will end up being a headline-grabbingly explosive arrest when the time comes. Former CIA Director James Woolsey claims to have witnessed Flynn’s kidnapping conspiracy conversation with the government of Turkey, and Woolsey has already revealed to the media that he’s been cooperating with Mueller.

At this point it’s clear that Robert Mueller is looking to drop the hammer on Michael Flynn in every sense of the phrase. Mueller appears to already have enough to send Flynn to prison for decades, yet he’s continuing to build an even more comprehensive and far reaching case. The most logical conclusion is that Mueller is looking to apply these same criminal charges to Michael Flynn Jr, in the hope of motivating Michael Flynn to cut a deal against Donald Trump.

Palmer Report: Republican legal expert proposes installing Hillary Clinton as U.S. President

With each passing day it becomes more clear that Donald Trump and his campaign illegally conspired with the Russian government to rig the election in his favor, and that his presidency is therefore illegitimate. Despite a whole lot of wishful thinking, various legal experts have confirmed that there is nothing in the Constitution that would allow the election result to be “nullified” under any circumstances. However, a respected legal expert and a Republican no less is proposing a different method for installing Hillary into her rightfully elected role as U.S. President.

Richard W. Painter is a Law Professor at the University of Minnesota and the former chief White House ethics lawyer for the George W. Bush administration. More recently he’s become a leading voice in exposing Donald Trump’s crimes in office, even while staunchly remaining a Republican. On Wednesday evening, he posted this tweet: “Not sure why Clinton isn’t running for a House seat. Dems could elect her Speaker. Then ….. It’s Mueller time.”

Painter didn’t flesh out his thoughts any further, but it’s clear where he’s going with this. If Hillary Clinton is elected to the U.S. House of Representatives in 2018, and if the Democrats win the majority in the House in that same election cycle, and if the Democrats then elect Hillary as Speaker of the House, and if Robert Mueller’s investigation provides enough evidence for Donald Trump and Mike Pence to be impeached and simultaneously removed, Hillary Clinton would in fact become President of the United States based on the order of succession spelled out in the 25th Amendment.

In real world terms, this is an extreme long shot. All of the above would need to happen in a specific order, and there is no indication that Hillary Clinton is seeking to make it happen. But this is notable because, while the idea of ushering Hillary into the presidency through this method has been floated before, this is the first time it’s been floated by a prominent public figure. It’s even more notable that it’s being floated by a Republican, who clearly believes it’s simply the Constitutionally fair thing to do.

Palmer Report: Donald Trump just handed Michael Flynn a really good reason to cut a deal against him

Let’s say you’re Donald Trump’s former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn. You’re about to get indicted on federal charges ranging from conspiracy against the United States to conspiracy to commit kidnapping, and maybe even worse. You’re paying seven different attorneys to try to defend you against the morass of impending charges. You’re broke and begging the public for scraps. You’re tempted to cut a deal against Donald Trump just to make it all end and Trump just picked the worst possible time to piss you off.

This week Donald Trump is finally rolling out a long promised fund to help his underlings with their legal expenses in the Trump-Russia scandal. Trump claims he’ll be funding it out of his own pocket, which no one believes, because he never funds anything out of his pocket. In fact the odds of this fund ever coming to fruition are small. But one person is already being categorically ruled out as a potential recipient.

That’s right, Donald Trump’s team is already preemptively announcing that Michael Flynn will not receive any funds to help with his legal costs, according to an on-air report from Rachel Maddow during her MNSBC show on Wednesday night. No reason is being given, but there are only a few possible explanations. One would be that Trump expects Flynn to simply fold up his defense, sit back and allow himself to be convicted, and then count on a pardon and that pardon of an alleged co-conspirator may not hold up constitutionally anyway. The other explanation would be that Trump believes Flynn has already cut a deal against him, or is going to cut a deal against him.

Either way, if Michael Flynn wasn’t already planning to cut a deal, Donald Trump just handed him a really good reason to do it. Regardless of what happens to Flynn as far as legal charges, he’s already financially ruined and now Trump is giving him the finger.
