Huge: Rosenstein Moved Cohen Case To New York – Then Ordered Trump-Appointed Us Attorney Geoffrey Berman To Recuse Himself
August 26, 2018
Earlier this year Dirty Cop Rod Rosenstein made the decision to turn over the Michael Cohen case to attorneys in the Southern District of New York. Rosenstein did this to ensure that the witch hunt against President Trump continued if President Trump shut down the junk Mueller investigation.
Rosenstein signed the 4th FISA court request to spy on President Trump despite knowing the request was based on a the Fusion-GPS dossier, a Democrat-funded oppo research project that was NEVER fact-checked.
Trump appointed attorney Geoffrey Berman recused himself from the investigation into Michael Cohen.
Rod Rosenstein approved the early morning raid of Michael Cohen’s residence. Geoffrey Berman was not involved in the decision to raid Cohen’s residence.
Rosenstein approved Mueller’s referral to Geoffrey Berman on Monday, April 9th. Rosenstein ordered raids on Cohen’s residence the following day. It is not clear why or when Berman recused himself from the investigation.
Wired sources claims that Rosenstein ordered Berman to recuse himself.
Wired Sources got this information from a New York Post article by Michael Goodwin.
The US attorney Trump appointed for that outpost, Geoffrey Berman, reportedly was ordered to recuse himself by Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, leaving the office staffed mostly by holdovers from Preet Bharara’s tenure.

The Global Seas Of Currency Are Starting To Storm Up – J. Johnson’s Latest 8/27/18
August 27, 2018
Good Monday Morning Folks,
We start our new week off with Gold trading at $1,211.90, losing $1.40 off of Fridays close with a price range between $1,214.70 and $1,209.30. Silver is barely down as well with its current price at $14.875, losing 2.6 cents with a high at $14.95 and a low at $14.82 so far this trading day way before 6am pst. All this is happening with London supposedly on holiday (cough). The US Dollar is equally uneventful with its value at 95.02, down 4.8 points with its high at 95.23 and the low at 94.90 as the 9500 Maginot line is once again crossed.
The last days of the August delivery cycle for Silver is upon us with the OI numbers still at 23 which means the posted 20 volume of Friday was an immediate request for physical to the tune of 100,000 ounces as we see no volume posted so far today. I wonder if FIFO (first in first out) is the process for the deliveries, they should be, but? Silver’s overall OI still remains quite elevated with the count at 242,296 contracts losing only 276 obligations during Friday’s most excellent 29 cent+ move higher. Tomorrow is the last trading day for Sept Silver Options and Wednesday is the last trading day for August deliveries which also brings us to the First Notice Day for the September contracts coming this Friday. With the Open Interest at this level and the current price being what it is, the next few weeks actions should be quite telling.
This Lanny Davis is such a loser and bser!
In Stunning Reversal, Michael Cohen’s Attorney Backpedals On Trump-Russia Claims
August 27, 2018
Lanny Davis – the attorney for Michael Cohen, has massively backpedaled on “confident assertions” that Cohen would share information with investigators that President Trump knew of Russian efforts to undermine Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton – a lifelong friend of Davis’.
The Washington Post reported on Sunday that Davis said in an interview that he is “no longer certain about claims he made to reporters on background and on the record in recent weeks about what Cohen knows about Trump’s awareness of the Russian efforts.”
Davis told The Washington Post that he cannot confirm media reports that Cohen is prepared to tell special counsel Robert S. Mueller III that Trump had advance knowledge of the 2016 Trump Tower meeting -WaPo
CNN reported in July that Cohen claimed to have witnessed Trump approving the meeting between Trump Jr. and Russian attorney Natalia Veselnitskaya, arranged by an associate of opposition research firm Fusion GPS.
The day after CNN’s report, the Washington Post – using an “anonymous source” they now admit was Davis, peddled the same story that “Cohen had told associates that he witnessed an exchange in which Trump Jr. told his father about an upcoming gathering in which he expected to get information about Clinton,” however the Post didn’t say Trump Jr. told Sr. it was the Russians.
“I should have been more clear — including with you — that I could not independently confirm what happened,” Davis said, adding perhaps the most difficult four words for an attorney to utter: “I regret my error.”
Comey Lied Under Oath to Congress about Needing Warrant to Search Weiner’s Emails – FBI Started Their Search a Month Prior
August 26, 2018
Amidst all kinds of confusion and cover-ups, it now looks like fired former FBI Director James Comey lied to Congress more than once about the FBI’s investigation into Weiner’s emails.
This past week it was reported that the FBI failed to investigate a large portion of emails on the Weiner laptop before the election in spite of fired FBI Director James Comey claiming that they had and no issues were identified:
“When then-FBI Director James Comey announced he was closing the Hillary Clinton email investigation for a second time just days before the 2016 election, he certified to Congress that his agency had “reviewed all of the communications” discovered on a personal laptop used by Clinton’s closest aide, Huma Abedin, and her husband, Anthony Weiner.
At the time, many wondered how investigators managed over the course of one week to read the “hundreds of thousands” of emails residing on the machine, which had been a focus of a sex-crimes investigation of Weiner, a former Congressman.
Comey later told Congress that “thanks to the wizardry of our technology,” the FBI was able to eliminate the vast majority of messages as “duplicates” of emails they’d previously seen. Tireless agents, he claimed, then worked “night after night after night” to scrutinize the remaining material.
But virtually none of his account was true, a growing body of evidence reveals.
The more currency devaluations we get in the periphery countries, the more physical gold and silver will be bought as a hedge against loss of purchasing power. See Bolivar chart.
Greyerz – The Price Of Gold Is About To Skyrocket As We Enter The “Dark Years”

A World Living On Borrowed Time
August 26 (King World News) – Egon von Greyerz: “This is it! The autumn of 2018 will be momentous in the world economy, markets and politics. We are now seeing the ‘Last Hurrah’ for stocks, bonds, the dollar and most asset markets.
The world economy has been living on borrowed time since the 2006-9 crisis. The financial system should have collapsed at that time. But the massive life support that central banks orchestrated managed to keep the dying patient alive for another decade. Lowering interest rates to zero or negative and printing enough money to double global debt seems to have solved the problem. But rather than saving the world from an economic collapse, the growth of debt and asset bubbles have created a system with exponentially higher risk…
