    Dems Pull Subpoena for Ex-Trump Adviser Who Took It to Court

    Edwin Mora 8 Nov 2019




    Former U.S. President Donald Trump adviser Charles Kupperman’s lawsuit asking the courts whether he should testify in the House impeachment probe forced Democrats to rescind their subpoena.

    “The subpoena at issue in this matter has been withdrawn, and there is no current intention to reissue it,” Democrats wrote in court filings, the Hill reported.

    On October 25, Kupperman, who served as a top aide for White House national security adviser John Bolton at the White House National Security Council (NSC), filed a lawsuit essentially asking the courts to rule on whether he should abide by the House Democrat’s subpoena, citing concerns that his testimony would inflict Constitutional damage on either the House or executive branch.

    Acknowledging that the lawsuit may take so long to settle that Kupperman may not have to testify, Democrats who want to rush the partisan impeachment inquiry pulled the subpoena.

    Democrats have indicated they want to vote on impeachment by Christmas. The leaders of the House Committees on Oversight and Reform, Intelligence, and Foreign Affairs conducting the impeachment inquiry attributed Kupperman’s subpoena defiance to “White House obstruction,” in an October 26 statement.

    The Hill quoted an unnamed House Intelligence Committee official as explaining their decision Wednesday:

    There is no proper basis for a witness to sue the Congress in court to oppose a duly authorized congressional subpoena. Nevertheless, given the schedule of our impeachment hearings, a court process that leads to the dismissal of Dr. Kupperman’s flawed lawsuit would only result in delay, so we have withdrawn his subpoena.

    The White House has said it will not cooperate in the impeachment probe.

    In a November 1st U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) memo released to the public Tuesday, the Trump administration argued that Democrat impeachment investigators’ attempts to compel testimony from executive branch officials are “legally invalid” unless they allow government attorneys to accompany the witnesses.

    The assistance of government counsel is needed because testimony has the potential to disclose information “protected by executive privilege,” the DOJ Office of Legal Counsel noted in a memo.

    While some officials did show up for their testimony, several White House officials bucked the House Democrats’ subpoena to testify in the impeachment inquiry this week.

    Democrats are urging Kupperman’s attorneys to convince the former Bolton aide to testify if the court rules in a separate case involving former White House counsel Don McGahn, who is questioning the courts as to whether he should testify.

    In both cases, the defendants argue that they have “absolute immunity” from complying with congressional subpoenas, as suggested by DOJ.

    Kupperman is considered a prominent witness since he was on the infamous July 25 call between Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, considered the crux of the impeachment inquiry.

    It appears that the approach employed by Kupperman and his lawyers could serve as a blueprint for individuals who are not willing to testify in the impeachment probe, as it ended up pressuring the Democrats to drop their subpoena.

    House Democrats have asked Bolton to testify, but his attorney told the House investigators the former White House official would take the matter to court if he is subpoenaed, echoing the actions of Kupperman. Saying they ware waiting for the court to rule on McGahn, the Democrats have not issued a subpoena to compel testimony from Bolton.

    Resembling the position of Kupperman, Bolton has indicated he will testify, defying the White House, if the court compels him to do so.

    Wrote about this a month ago and why Trump allowing China to do large ag purchases without IP concessions actually was a help to China and not the US. The new supply will aid in fighting pork prices. I would have let them suffer w stagflation until they make a real deal. The 50B in purchases is about the value of 10 months of China IP theft.

    How The Star Witness In Roger Stone’s Trial Proved ‘Difficult’ For Prosecutors

    Chuck Ross
    November 09, 2019



    Randy Credico, the government’s star witness in the trial of Roger Stone, undercut several key planks in the case against the longtime Trump confidant.

    Credico testified that he knew Stone to be a “dog lover,” which counters prosecutors’ allegations that Stone threatened to steal Credico’s dog, Bianca.

    A court transcript from Friday’s proceedings also shows that the judge overseeing the case privately referred to Credico as a “difficult” witness.

    Journalists who were in the courtroom reported that Credico’s testimony countered some of the government’s allegations against Stone.




    When the federal judge presiding over the trial against Roger Stone referred to the government’s star witness, Randy Credico, as “difficult” on Friday, none of the members of the jury or others in the Washington, D.C., court room overheard her pointed remarks.

    District Judge Amy Berman Jackson made the observation during a side bar discussion with lead government attorney Aaron Zelinsky and Stone lawyer Robert Bushchel, according to a transcript of the court proceedings obtained by the Daily Caller News Foundation.

    Jackson made the remark after two days of testimony that saw Credico, a comedian and longtime frenemy of Stone’s, repeatedly chided for going off track in response to questions, and for attempting to perform impressions.

    After one contentious exchange, Jackson called a side bar for Bushchel and Zelinsky, who was assistant special counsel on the Robert Mueller probe.

    “In our defense, the witness — ” Bushchel began to tell Jackson, according to the court transcript.

    “Is difficult,” Jackson interjected. “I’m doing the best I can.”

    “Believe me, I think everybody is doing the best under difficult circumstances,” Jackson also told the lawyers.

    “I don’t usually insert myself in examinations as often as I have.”

    “I’m trying to facilitate what you’re doing, and focusing in ways that maybe are less threatening to him so that he can actually answer the question.”

    While the jury was unable to hear the exchange thanks to the use of a husher, which blocks out ancillary noise, they did observe Credico undermining several key planks of the government’s case against Stone, who was indicted Jan. 24 on seven counts, including witness tampering, obstruction of a government proceeding, and making false statements to Congress.

    Credico acknowledged during cross-examination Friday that Stone, who he has known since 2002, is a “dog lover.” Credico also testified that he had “many” associates, including some of his legal advisers, urging him to plead the Fifth to avoid cooperating with the House Intelligence Committee.


    Prosecutors said Stone obstructed with the House Intelligence investigation, and committed witness tampering by threatening Credico into pleading the Fifth. Among the threats that prosecutors are alleging are from an April 9, 2018, message that Stone sent Credico referring to the comedian’s 12-year-old therapy dog, Bianca.

    “You backstab your friends, run your mouth. My lawyers are dying rip [sic] you to shreds,” Stone wrote to Credico, also calling him a “rat” and a “stoolie.”

    “I’m going to take that dog away from you. Not a fucking thing you can do about it either, because you are a weak, broke, piece of shit. I will prove to the world you are a liar.”

    Stone told Credico in another text message: “Prepare to die, cocksucker.”

    Days after Stone sent the text message, Credico began giving interviews in which he accused Stone of “crossing the line” by threatening Bianca, who travels with its owner.

    “It’s certainly scary,” Credico told journalist Michael Isikoff on April 13, 2018, days after Stone sent the messages. “When you start bringing up my dog, you’re crossing the line.”

    Other media outlets picked up on Credico’s remarks, and pushed the narrative that Stone’s messages could lead to witness intimidation charges. Ari Melber, an MSNBC anchor who frequently had Credico as a guest, ran a segment Aug. 14, 2018, raising the specter that the special counsel would investigate Stone over his text messages about Bianca.

    But Credico on Friday undercut the notion his past remarks, as well as part of the government’s case.

    “I don’t think he was going to steal my dog. I think he was pretty riled up at that time,” Credico acknowledged during cross-examination from Bushchel, the Stone lawyer.

    “I know he wouldn’t have ever touched that dog. It was hyperbole by him.”

    “Does he love my dog? I think he loves all dogs. I don’t think he would steal a dog, no,” Credico added.

    Reporters who were in the Washington, D.C., court room acknowledged that Credico’s testimony undercut the government’s case.


    Credico also acknowledged that he pleaded the Fifth in response to the House Intelligence Committee after speaking with multiple associates, including Stone.

    “He’s one of many reasons why I took the Fifth,” Credico said.

    “[T]here’s a thousand reasons why I took the Fifth. I got advice from him,” added Credico.

    He said another reason he pleaded the Fifth was to avoid drawing his longtime friend, Margaret Ratner Kunstler, into the saga involving WikiLeaks.

    Kunstler was an outside legal adviser to WikiLeaks during 2016. Stone has asserted that tips that Credico provided him prior to WikiLeaks’ release of Clinton campaign emails Oct. 7, 2016, came via Kunstler.

    “I didn’t know what to do at that point,” Credico said of his deliberations about pleaded the Fifth.

    “Do I protect myself being associated with Donald Trump? If I — if I do that, then I sacrifice Mrs. Kunstler’s reputation. So, that’s the line I was walking at that particular point.”

    Stone and Credico began their latest falling out after Stone agreed to testify before the House Intelligence Committee in September 2017. Weeks after the testimony, Stone told the committee Credico was a back-channel for information in 2016 regarding WikiLeaks.


    Credico vehemently denied in 2018 being a back-channel between Stone and WikiLeaks, though text messages cited during the trial do show Credico provided Stone with insights into WikiLeaks’ plans that proved accurate.

    “[B]ig news Wednesday,” Credico wrote to Stone on Oct. 1, 2016. “[N]ow pretend u don’t know me.”

    “Hillary’s campaign will die this week,” he wrote the next day.

    “Off the Record Hillary and her people are doing a full-court press they keep Assange from making the next dump … That’s all I can tell you on this line,” he also wrote, adding: “please leave my name out of it.”

    Donald Trump fined $2m for misusing charity for political ends
    New York judge also signed off on agreement to close the Trump Foundation and distribute $1.7m remaining funds to not-for-profits


    David Smith in Washington

    Thu 7 Nov 2019 16.46 ESTFirst published on Thu 7 Nov 2019 14.19 EST

    Donald Trump has been ordered by a judge to pay $2m in damages for illegally using funds intended for charity to boost his 2016 presidential election campaign.

    The US president admitted to personally misusing the money, according to New York’s attorney general, despite having previously denied any wrongdoing.

    The humiliating fine adds to Trump’s woes that include several investigations into allegations that he is using public office for self-enrichment, as well as an impeachment inquiry by the House of Representatives.

    The attorney general in New York filed a lawsuit last year alleging Trump and his three eldest children - Don Jr, Ivanka and Eric - broke campaign finance laws in 2016 by using the Donald J Trump Foundation’s tax-exempt status “as little more than a checkbook to serve Mr Trump’s business and political interests”.

    There was “a shocking pattern of illegality involving the Trump Foundation – including unlawful coordination with the Trump presidential campaign, repeated and willful self-dealing, and much more,” the suit argued.

    On Thursday, Justice Saliann Scarpulla ordered the Trump family to pay $2m to a group of not-for-profit organizations as part of a settlement with the New York state attorney general’s office after “persistent” violations of charities law.

    In particular, the judge agreed that Trump “breached his fiduciary duty” with a purported foundation fundraiser in January 2016, ahead of the Iowa caucuses in the Republican party primary, that was in fact a campaign event.

    In the agreements, Trump admitted to misusing funds from the foundation, which he dissolved last year, including to pay for a portrait himself that cost $10,000. He also agreed to pay back $11,525 he spent on sports memorabilia and champagne at a charity gala.

    The New York attorney general, Letitia James, had been seeking $2.8m in restitution from the president, but this was trimmed by Scarpulla to $2m. The judge also declined James’s request for a ban on the Trump family serving on the board of any not-for-profit organization in New York.

    Even so, James, a Democrat, welcomed the resolution of the case. “The court’s decision, together with the settlements we negotiated, are a major victory in our efforts to protect charitable assets and hold accountable those who would abuse charities for personal gain,” she said.

    “No one is above the law, not a businessman, not a candidate for office and not even the president of the United States,” she said.

    Her office added in a statement that Trump “admits to personally misusing funds at the Trump Foundation” – a rare event for a president who generally prefers to deny, distract or punch back.

    It added: “In the first half of 2016 – at the height of the Republican primaries – Mr Trump used foundation money, raised from the public, to demonstrate his purported generosity and attract votes. Mr Trump and his campaign doled out $500,000 at a campaign rally in the days leading up to the first primary election in the nation, the Iowa caucuses, then took credit for all $2.8m in grants the foundation made.”

    Trump spent part of the 2016 election campaign fiercely attacking Hillary Clinton over alleged corruption at the Clinton Foundation but never produced evidence to support his claims.

    He has long defended his own foundation and made clear his feelings about the legal action.

    Following the ruling, he tweeted a long and unrepentant statement. “I am the only person I know, perhaps the only person in history, who can give major money to charity ($19M), charge no expense, and be attacked by the political hacks in New York State,” he wrote.

    “The New York Attorney General is deliberately mischaracterizing this settlement for political purposes,” he claimed.

    A spokesperson for the Trump Foundation, which began in 1987, said: “Following the 2016 presidential election, the Trump Foundation publicly announced its intention to voluntarily dissolve and distribute all of its remaining funds to charity. Unfortunately, that donation was delayed due to the Attorney General’s politically motivated lawsuit.”

    The $1.78m in assets currently held by the Trump Foundation, along with the $2m in damages to be paid by Trump, will be distributed equally to eight charities: Army Emergency Relief, the Children’s Aid Society, Citymeals-on-Wheels, Give an Hour, Martha’s Table, United Negro College Fund, United Way of National Capital Area and the US Holocaust Memorial Museum.

    Since you're here...
    … we have a small favour to ask. More people, like you, are reading and supporting the Guardian’s independent, investigative journalism than ever before. We will engage with the most critical issues of our time – from the escalating climate catastrophe to widespread inequality to the influence of big tech on our lives.

    Guardian reporting is based in fact, and as a news organisation, we are progressive in how we view the world and respond to it. Many readers tell us they share our progressive values; we made the choice to keep our reporting open for all, regardless of where they live or what they can afford to pay. At a time when factual information is a necessity, we believe that each of us, around the world, deserves access to accurate reporting with integrity at its heart.

    Our editorial independence means we set our own agenda and voice our own opinions. Guardian journalism is free from commercial and political bias and not influenced by billionaire owners or shareholders. This means we can give a voice to those less heard, explore where others turn away, and rigorously challenge those in power.

    We hope you will consider supporting us today. We need your support to keep delivering quality journalism that’s open and independent. Every reader contribution, however big or small, is so valuable.

    He isn't going to prison.

    Though, if you or I embezzled $2M from a charity, we would be. But different rules apply to a POTUS.
    If I don't respond to you it means I have you on ignore, which means you are a douchenozzle.

    David Lee Roth did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it!
