EXCLUSIVE: New Evidence Trump Tower Meeting on January 6, 2017, May Have Initiated Trump Obstruction Investigation – Rosenstein Covered It Up
New evidence shows that the purpose of the January 6, 2017, Intel meeting at Trump Tower may have been to set up President-elect Trump for obstruction charges.
Nevertheless, the Deep State’s obstruction investigation started long before Rosenstein created the Mueller investigation on May 17th, 2017, and Rosenstein hid this obstruction investigation in his initial appointment of Special Counsel Mueller and from President Trump!
We first knew from leaks to the Washington Post in June 2017 that the Mueller team was investigating President Trump for obstruction as well as collusion:
Donald Trump is reportedly being investigated for potential obstruction of justice by the special counsel looking into Russia’s interference in the 2016 presidential election. This marks the first time that the investigation, which has hung over Trump since his inauguration, has potentially implicated the president himself.
The Washington Post reported on Wednesday night that the federal investigation into the Trump campaign’s ties with Russia during the 2016 campaign, being overseen by Robert Mueller, has now expanded into whether the president attempted to thwart that investigation.
Trump tweeted early on Thursday morning: “They made up a phony collusion with the Russians story, found zero proof, so now they go for obstruction of justice on the phony story. Nice.” He later repeated his claims that such investigations were a “WITCH HUNT”.
However, it was not known that an investigation into obstruction was underway at the FBI by this time. Now according to a transcript released earlier this month from a closed hearing between the Mueller gang and CNN, the Mueller team noted that an investigation into whether President-elect and then President Trump obstructed justice started long before the Mueller investigation was created:
Based on testimonies, the FBI opened its investigation into obstruction as a result of former FBI Director James Comey’s memos. These appear to be the same memos that Comey took and leaked to the media before the Mueller team was created which may have led to the Mueller investigation.
Comey’s memorandums cover his interactions with President Trump. It is unknown if Comey ever took notes from his discussions with President Obama. One of the first meetings between President-elect Trump and Comey took place on January 6th, 2017, before the inauguration at Trump Tower.
If the obstruction investigation into Trump started from the early January meeting, before the President was even in office, was it legit? Did President-elect Trump even have the authority to obstruct? Was this the real reason for the Trump Tower meeting?
Rosenstein’s first Special Counsel mandate was not clear about Trump being charged with obstruction of justice at the time the investigation began. Here’s how it was hidden in Rosenstein’s order:
“(i) any links and/or coordination bet ween the Russian government and individuals associated with the campaign of President Donald Trump; and (ii) any matters that arose or may arise directly from the investigation; and (iii) any other matters within the scope of 28 C.F.R. § 600.4(a).”
Rosenstein and the Deep State didn’t want President Trump to know that he was being investigated for obstruction. They wanted to catch him in an act that they could claim was obstruction. So they hid their attempts to catch him obstructing!
In the CNN – Mueller case, the lawyer representing Mueller states that 28 CFR 600.4 covers the Mueller gangs efforts to catch Trump obstructing justice –
This is what the 28 CFR 600.4 actually states:
“(a)Original jurisdiction. The jurisdiction of a Special Counsel shall be established by the Attorney General. The Special Counsel will be provided with a specific factual statement of the matter to be investigated. The jurisdiction of a Special Counsel shall also include the authority to investigate and prosecute federal crimes committed in the course of, and with intent to interfere with, the Special Counsel’s investigation, such as perjury, obstruction of justice, destruction of evidence, and intimidation of witnesses; and to conduct appeals arising out of the matter being investigated and/or prosecuted.”
By noting the regulation rather than the wording of the regulation especially in reference to obstruction, Rosenstein hid from plain site the fact that the FBI was already investigating President Trump for obstruction.
This was clearly a lie.
The Special Counsel was earnestly trying to find a way to indict President Trump for obstruction of justice. Rosenstein, Mueller and the Deep State tried to hide their efforts to remove President Trump from office through their coup. It didn’t work!
