Mueller prosecutor says special counsel 'could have done more' to hold Trump accountable
"A former top prosecutor on special counsel Bob Miller's team writes in a new. Tell all book where law ends that the Group failed to fully investigate trump's financial ties and should have stated explicitly in their report that they believed he obstructed justice. Andrew Weissmann claims that Muller's efforts were limited by the ever present threat of trump disbanding their office and by their own reluctance to be aggressive against a sitting president. The team made sure it's work was logged into a computer system in a way so that it would be preserved if trump got rid of Mueller but Weissmann says the pressure caused them to pull punches. He likens it to a sword of Damocles hanging over all of their investigative decisions, leading them at certain times to act much less forcefully and more defensively than they would have if they were investigating anyone but the president. Weisman says it led them to delay and ultimately forego entire lines of inquiry though were quite promising particularly regarding this president financial ties to Russia. This bothered him deeply because in America no one is supposed to be above the law not even the president here is a key paragraph from Weisman's new book which comes out next week, and which we got an early copy of he writes quote. We still do not know if there are other financial ties between the president and either the Russian government or Russian oligarchs. We do not know whether he paid bribes to foreign officials to secure favourable treatment for his business interests a potential violation of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act. That would provide leverage against the president. We do not know if he had other Russian business deals in the works at the time he was running for president how they might have aided or constrained his campaign or. Even if they are continuing to influence his presidency. Weisman was considered one of the top prosecutors at the justice, department had been a senior supervisor before Muller brought him onto his team. Now he teaches it Nyu law school in the book. Whitesman lays particular blame on Muller's number two errands assembly for stopping investigators from taking a broader look at trump's finances and he writes that he wonders whether investigators quote gave it their all Weisman lambasts attorney general bill bar for among other things giving the public a deeply misleading four-page summary of Moore's work before the full report was released publicly. bowlers report was far more damning than the anodyne description that bar put out. It was upon reading bars misleading four-page memo that Weisman decided yet moral obligation to write this book. Weisman is critical of Molar himself for not stating plainly that he concluded trump obstructed justice which Weisman says the evidence clearly shows Weissmann said in an interview on Monday with my colleagues Matt Sabotage and Spencer Sue that he told more, he would have stated that conclusion in the teams final report. More. Critically, Weisman complains how he felt more was wrong not to green light issuing a subpoena for trump's testimony, and he also details how he personally pressed the special counsel repeatedly to do so. The office also declined to compel testimony from the President's son Donald Trump Junior, or even to seek an interview with first daughter Ivanka trump who was involved in a lot of the potential misconduct described in the final report. Weisman's primary task was to lead the team called Team N, which investigated former trump campaign chairman Paul manafort for financial crimes in hopes that he'd flip to become a useful witness another team team are was tasked with exploring whether the trump campaign had coordinated with Russia to influence the election and another team six hundred was tasked with exploring whether trump had obstructed justice. Weisman is critical of that ladder team teams six hundred saying that an FBI agent assigned to it complained to him that it was quote pulling its punches and shooting down her views. And weisman alleges that its leader Mike driven another veteran former prosecutor. Confided in him privately that he would not have been. So mealy mouthed about saying the president had obstructed Justice Weisman's says driven. told him quote if you and I were in charge this is not how it would read. I should say here that Zebedee Moeller Andrew even did not respond to our requests for comment about what said about them in the book.
Fresh update on "financial crimes" discussed on The Troubleshooter
"33713 talked 037138255, all right. We have a situation here. We have to handle. Anthony, There is still a moratorium on evictions. Right, Mark? Isn't there a moratorium? Absolutely until at least at least the 20th of November. Now listen, Anthony, you have to do things according to what I say. And then we're going to help you. But you You should not have had your other truck with the plates on it. You should not have had that. Toad the one with no identification on it. What? You had one vehicle with plates and one without the one without we can't help you. Unless you can show that he knew it was yours and towed it just to be just too. Ah, penalize you now you have damages and I would assume in small claims court because this guy is taking advantage of you plus no hot water. And I would call the health department right now and tell him that he turned off your hot water because he can't evict you. Okay? Um, I remember. I remember Brandon Sig Lee and years ago telling us if the landlord did do this because I brought it up in an argument one time. Well, if I can of victim why can't I just kill his gases? Water, electricity, and there is major major finds this guy could be looking at this guy might actually get a part of them, but I don't recall. Now our one of our tenant landlord attorneys is not on is not answering his phone right now, so we can't go to him. But Anthony Deputy Doc knows a lot about this situation. He's been following it. We're gonna let you talk to him. He's going to contact your landlord and tell your landlord that basically He's gotta play ball right now. He's in big trouble. So hold on and get this information for Deputy Doc. 303713 Tom 3037138255. I want to bring up Aaron. Israel's really quickly He's an attorney, and then we'll go back to him. But Aaron is with Israel's Newman dot com. It's a law firm, Israel's and Newman PLC, Now Israel's in Newman, I'll be giving that number out. So it's Israel with an S. And Newman and U M A. N They do a different kind of practice. It's the kind of you know, I've said this before, Aaron and I mean this sincerely OK, listen. This is the kind of law where a lot of people get ripped off and don't get help. They don't and in. It's a shame, but here's what I said One time if you had your life savings Within a guy that represented himself to be an investment counselor. And all of a sudden he stops returning your phone calls, and you don't get your statements and you have no idea where to go. There are people like that who never get help, and their money just goes away. I mean, it's just that and there's got to be someone to hold these people accountable. But I swear to you, Erin, if you call the FBI and said, Hey, I had $100,000 or 70,000 or 200 or three dead. Matt and I had invested with this guy and he just took it and I never heard from him again. You'd be surprised The FBI won't take a report Local police won't take a report. No one will actually do anything for you. And that's where your law firm comes in. What do you do for people and explain the type of law you practice? Sure, Tom. I think I'm the most basic level. What I do is I help people who have lost money, making bad investments or due to bad financial advice, recover their investment losses. Or just plain cheaters. Right? Don'tyou help like you helped with the maid off situation as well. Absolutely come. We do a lot of work with theft fraud, Ponzi scheme than other things like that, and what we do is we try to find other people are entities involved in these transactions that could be held liable for the investment losses as well. Tell me something, Erin. Why is that the law enforcement shy eyes away from this until an attorney wants an attorney gathers information. You can make a call and get them interested. But why is it when consumers call? They kind of ignore it? Time. I think one of the first things that you generally here is that it sounds like a civil manner because a lot of times when you go and make a report like that to a law enforcement agency and say that you made an investment I don't necessarily look at that as a crime. They look at it as a dispute between two people, and they tend to shy away from it because of that, Also, I think they just aren't a lot of guys out there. They get a lot of training in this stuff. You know, generally law enforcement departments and thing, but that only God. Ah guy or two who looks into financial crimes and right. It's just not always. I think they're understaffed for this type of work, even though you know there's a lot of it, Terry. Okay. What you want Deputy dog way? Um, does Sandra or the S E? C. Take any of these cases seriously? So if you reported to those one or two agencies does that help? I think that it can help, But I can tell you right now what you're gonna get from Sonora and the FCC in general, are they're going to focus on people who have had a financial license of some sort. And generally, the first step is to take proceeding to take the license away. Sometimes you see the city moving forward on an actual civil action where they're suing. And sometimes when the people take a step further and turn it into bring those proceedings in conjunction with a criminal investigation, too. Finger itself so really only focuses on taking away licenses. So if if, In fact we are Are in trouble and needs your help. How do we know? Give me some examples of clients that come to you. Okay, so set on a basic level Tom into the first people that call us people that maybe just got sold a bad financial product. Maybe they bought something. You know where they had to put down $50,000 to buy into a private investment and it was legitimate, But then they didn't quite realize. Hey, once I buy this product I can't get my money out or this product could easily fail. And then all of my money is gone. If they have a particular problem with an investment that also stopped saying that sometimes a reason to give us a call, you know, on the opposite end. Really going as far as you did Thomas cases where people have been getting state statements and things like that from people who are purportedly acting at their financial advisor in person. All those statements just stop money stops. You know these? These distributions dividends they were getting just aren't coming anymore, And nobody seems to be around to answer any questions anymore. Okay. Now you hang on if anyone hasn't any questions at all about investment, investment fraud, Financial advisors, financial advisor mistakes. Ah, problems Give us a call..

Mozilla Suspends "Send" Due to Persistent Malware Abuse
"Someone were to go to send dot fire Fox Dot Com. At the moment they would be greeted by the little screen shot I have at the top of the security news of our show notes, which reads Fox and is temporarily unavailable while we work on product improvements, we appreciate your patience while we make the fire. Fox, Send Experience Better and Leo I think you did just go there did yes, and there it is so back because I really love. Fire Fox sent it so it's my go-to. Yes, it's my become my go-to file. Sharing Service the good news. It'll be back. The. Bad News is why it went away. Just to remind our listeners, we've talked about it before. IT allows files of up to one GIGABYTE if you're not signed in. Or two and a half gigabytes if you are to be locally encrypted in the browser. Optionally Password protected so that only the recipient is able to retrieve and decrypt the sent file. You get retention controls allowing the sender to set the time that is the duration and or a download count after which that content will expire from the Fire Fox send cloud and be removed. Unfortunately. As with anything that is simple, free and effective. Like think e mail. It's also subject to abuse by nefarious forces. The bad guys also love Fire Fox. Send because it lets them generate short-term links based on good-looking trusted domains for sharing arbitrary evil wear to unwitting victims, so thanks to fire Fox said the bad guys don't need to set up their own file sharing server. You know and like try to get a legitimate looking URL domain. They don't have to worry about making sure that you are. ells expire automatically. Mozilla does that for them and links it only work once create an extra challenge for security researchers. Even if the militias url is captured in a log by then it's probably been used so it's not possible to go back and obtain the original because it's been removed already. And, of course, since the IP is one of Mozilla servers. It's not one that anyone wants to just put a blanket block on. know I was GONNA say they wouldn't want to blacklist it but I'm working to be better. over the past few months fire, Fox, send it turns out has been used increasingly to store payloads for all sorts of cybercrime operations from ransomware through financial crime banking trojans. SPYWARE and used to target human rights. Defenders Fin seven revival also known as a so dino cabby. You are sniff. which is also the dream dot? Network and Z. loader are just some of the malware gangs and strains that have been seen hosting payloads using fire Fox, send as a consequence. The cyber security industry has has finally tipped its collective hat to Mozilla for suspending what has become a widely used and unfortunately now only abused service you know Mozilla did didn't just say Oh you know we recognize there's a problem we will be considering some changes in the future. They just shut it down. They said okay. We're GONNA. We're just GONNA. Stop making available until we can. You know upgraded? Cyber security researchers have suggested various changes to strengthen the service. One is to add a report abuse button so that flagging or killing militias links could be made much more quick and easy What Mozilla said in their statement about this, they said before relaunching. We will be adding an abuse reporting mechanism to augment the existing feedback form. And we will require all users wishing to share content using fire Fox send to sign in with a Fire Fox account. So. It's sad that once again we see the Internet's inherent anonymity, being abused and then having to be restricted. It was cool to be able to send up to one GIG with a twenty four hour expiration without needing an account with Mozilla. Even though I have one, but just zoom was forced to limit what they would allow to be done with full anonymity, so to now has Mozilla and as we know, even requiring an account is not a very high bar and my sense is, it's not going to be very effective, but at least it will help a bit, and it will help Mozilla to say hey, you know we've done all we can. We're doing you know we're doing all the we can do.

Los Angeles: Trump Pardons LA Billionaire Michael Milken: ‘He Suffered Greatly’
"President trump went on a pardoning spree on Tuesday for a WHO's who of individuals convicted of white collar crime. A total of eleven people were given commutations or pardons and this follows. How should we say troubling history of prior pardons from this White House including Joe Arpaio Scooter Libby and an Extra Sousa? There was no indication that he followed the typical Justice Department vetting process for these sorts of things but rather that he heard recommendations from a cast of characters including his personal lawyer and czar of corrupt overseas action. Talk about Rudy Giuliani. Perhaps the biggest name of the pardon bunch was Rod Blagojevich the former Democratic governor of Illinois. So get in. W T F. Yeah indeed I mean so. Blagojevich is a good place to start with all of this because it gives us an example a window into the kinds of people that were pardoned on Tuesday. Blagojevich solicited bribes for political appointments including for one Barack Obama's open Senate seat after he was elected president The selling of a Senate seat is not something that typically happens in America. He was impeached and removed from office and Blagojevich had completed eight years of a fourteen year term and trump commuted the arrested on Tuesday. We have commuted the sentence of Rod Blagojevich. He served eight years in jail. A long time and I watched his wife on television. I don't know him very well. I bet him a couple of times. He was on for a short while the apprentice years ago very nice. I don't know. Wow imagine thinking the apprentices like a good judge of character. It's not even a good show. Well okay. So presumably. The rest of the pardons were not all people featured at one time on the apprentice right so like who else got him. It would be incredible if they were Unfortunately they're not. There was Michael Milkin who is referred to as the quote Junk Bond King. He was accused of taking part in an insider trading scheme and pled guilty to several counts of securities violations. Now he had served twenty two months in prison and since he was released he has been funding medical research into cancer more recently. Ironically though when milken getting in trouble in the nineteen eighties one of the people pursuing charges against him was Giuliani. Who was then the top prosecutor for the Southern District of New York how the turntables according to The New York Times One of the people that suggested this part into trump was Nelson peltz. He is a billionaire investor. Who held a ten million dollar fundraiser? For Trump's twenty twenty campaign this past weekend again. This is normally not how this would work recommendations pouring in from random personal or business acquaintances acquaintances at events for your reelection campaign. So I'm sensing a bit of a pattern here in terms of decision making. Yeah so the other two high profile ones here were for former New York City police. Commissioner Bernard B Kerik and a former owner of the San Francisco Forty niners Edward J debartolo. Junior someone's GonNa assume that these fellows they did all the similar things. Yeah basically. Yeah I mean carrick was found to have accepted a two hundred fifty thousand dollar quote unquote loan from an Israeli billionaire while he served as Interior Minister of Iraq. The issue there was that he didn't disclose it Carrick. Later pled guilty to eight felony tax and false statement charges now for deer Tolo. He actually never served a prison term but paid a million dollar fine after pleading guilty to concealing extortion attempt in Nineteen. Ninety Eight. Believe it had to do with a Casino Boat. Type situation. I would like to read a little bit more about it as well Interestingly as well for him DEBARTOLO was among the host of a pre inauguration. Party for trump in two thousand seventeen so to recap just these four examples. It was a long list of people who committed pretty major financial crimes and weren't necessarily the first people on top of mind for

I think I probably realized that two or three days after just the impact that he was having an interesting today. I was talking to him earlier early in the morning before he had done a few hits. So one on FOX and friends, I think he did one on CNN and one of the things that he was saying to me was you know, by firefighters were here. My police officers there, and it's so sad. Let's thought about this a lot over the years. And he's mentioned it this way. And I almost feel like he's he's a general wish his soldiers trying to position that. But the way he talks about it. Now, he's almost like a father, you know, that lost his. Some of his children. So he. It's you know, I know the he goes through a complex away of emotions that Dr drew. You're probably, you know, more better to diagnose diagnostic thing. It's it's a human thing. And he's in a very unique position had a very unique experience that we all shared in.
