The walls are closing in on Barack Obama’s Deep State.
Investigators are closing in on all the criminals embedded throughout the government.
And now a top Obama ally faces jail time for this shocking crime.
Robert Mueller charged one Democrat during his politically motivated fishing expedition into the Trump Russian collusion conspiracy theory.
Mueller’s team charged former Obama White House counsel Greg Craig for lying about his work with former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort on lobbying work in the Ukraine.
The Daily Caller reports:
Former President Barack Obama’s White House counsel goes on trial Monday, accused of lying to and misleading Justice Department officials about his work with President Donald Trump’s former campaign manager, Paul Manafort.
Craig was indicted in April on two counts of giving false statements to DOJ officials related to his public relations work in Ukraine. Judge Amy Berman Jackson, an Obama appointee, threw out one of the counts Craig is facing Aug. 6 — he still faces one count.
The case stems from former special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia probe, which uncovered evidence of alleged wrongdoing by Craig, but referred the material to the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of Columbia for prosecution. He is alleged to have violated a core component of the Foreign Agents Registration Act (FARA).
Obama Judge Amy Berman Jackson is presiding over the case so there is a chance Craig could escape accountability for his crimes.
And Berman Jackson already did Craig a favor by throwing out one of the charges against him.
But there is still one more charge Craig is facing jail time for.
This case is a key test to determine if justice is applied equally in America or if there is one standard for Trump associates and a different one for Obama loyalists.
