Trump Just Blindsided Democrats With Breakthrough Investigation 24 Days Before Midterms

Published

As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service in the world, RWN offers the following information published by CNN:

President Donald Trump’s legal team is preparing answers to written questions provided by special counsel Robert Mueller, according to sources familiar with the matter.

The move represents a major development after months of negotiations and signals that the Mueller investigation could be entering a final phase with regard to the President.

The questions are focused on matters related to the investigation of possible collusion between Trump associates and Russians seeking to meddle in the 2016 election, the sources said. Trump’s lawyers are preparing written responses, in part relying on documents previously provided to the special counsel, the sources said.

“We are in continuing discussions with the special counsel and we do not comment on those discussions,” said Trump attorney Jay Sekulow.

There may be more rounds of questions after the first answers are returned. The special counsel had insisted that there be a chance for follow-up questions as well. But after a prolonged back-and-forth over months, the two sides agreed to start with a first round of questions.

Additionally, the two sides have still not come to agreement on whether the President will be interviewed in person by investigators who are also probing whether Trump obstructed justice by firing FBI Director James Comey.
Asked on Thursday about answering Mueller’s questions, Trump again signaled his willingness to sit down for an interview with Mueller or provide written responses — the option much preferred by his attorneys.

“It seems ridiculous that I’d have to do it when everybody says there’s no collusion, but I’ll do what is necessary to get it over with,” Trump said in a phone interview on Fox News. Despite Trump’s insistence to the contrary, the possibility of collusion remains an open question in the ongoing investigation led by Mueller, who has not tipped his hand one way or the other.

Negotiations for Trump’s testimony lasted for the better part of a year. The two sides nearly reached a deal in January for Trump to be questioned at the presidential retreat in rural Maryland, Camp David, only for talks to break down at the last minute. What followed was a series of letters and meetings — some hostile — in which Trump’s lawyers raised objections and sought to limit any potential testimony.

For months, Mueller told Trump’s lawyers that he needed to hear from the President to determine his intent on key events in the obstruction inquiry. During one tense session in March, Mueller raised the possibility of getting a subpoena to compel the President’s testimony.

Trump’s lead attorney John Dowd resigned later that month. According to a recent book published by journalist Bob Woodward, Dowd quit because he believed Trump would never heed his advice to avoid an interview at all costs. Trump once publicly said he was “100%” willing to go under oath to answer questions about his decision to fire Comey, who led the original Russia investigation before Mueller was appointed.

The President eventually hired Rudy Giuliani to join his legal team, and the former New York mayor quickly took to the airwaves to defend Trump and attack Mueller. As Giuliani made the rounds on TV newscasts — blasting the investigation as illegitimate — Trump’s other lawyers, Jane and Marty Raskin, carefully worked behind the scenes with Mueller’s team to narrow the topics that Trump could be asked about.

Anyone that is smuggling in illegal aliens needs to be arrested!

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement Report:

ROCKFORD, Ill. — An Illinois man was indicted Tuesday by a federal grand jury on several counts of illegally bringing aliens to the U.S., transporting them and harboring them for his personal financial gain.

This indictment was announced by U.S. Attorney John R. Lausch Jr., Northern District of Illinois, and Special Agent in Charge James M. Gibbons, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE) Homeland Security Investigations (HSI). The DeKalb (Illinois) Police Department assisted in this investigation.

Luis Alfredo Delacruz, 49, from DeKalb, Illinois, was indicted on the following charges:

two counts of bringing aliens into the United States at a place other than a designated port of entry for commercial advantage or private financial gain;
two counts of bringing aliens into the U.S. at a place other than a designated port of entry;
two counts of transporting illegal aliens within the U.S. for commercial advantage or private financial gain; and,
eight counts of harboring illegal aliens for commercial advantage or private financial gain.
As alleged in the indictment, in November 2015 and April 2016, Delacruz brought into the United States two aliens who had not received prior official authorization to enter. Delacruz did not bring them through immigration at a designated port of entry, the indictment states.

It is further alleged that on June 1, 2018, Delacruz illegally harbored eight illegal aliens in buildings or other places through employment at Alfredo’s Iron Works in Cortland. Delacruz allegedly harbored these aliens for commercial advantage and his own financial gain.

Each count of bringing aliens into the United States at a place other than a designated port of entry for commercial advantage or private financial gain carries a mandatory minimum sentence of three years in prison and a maximum of 10 years.

Each count of bringing aliens to the U.S. at a place other than a designated port of entry carries a maximum sentence of five years in prison.

Each count of transporting illegal aliens within the U.S. for commercial advantage or private financial gain, and each count of harboring illegal aliens for commercial advantage or private financial gain, carries a maximum sentence of 10 years in prison.

Each count in the indictment also carries a maximum fine of $250,000, and a period of supervised release following imprisonment of up to three years.

If convicted, the Court must impose a reasonable sentence under federal sentencing statutes and the advisory U.S. Sentencing Guidelines.

The public is reminded that an indictment contains only charges and is not evidence of guilt. The defendant is presumed innocent and entitled to a fair trial at which the government has the burden of proving guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.

Delacruz is scheduled to appear for arraignment on April 23 before U.S. Magistrate Judge Iain D. Johnston in Rockford, Illinois.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Joseph C. Pedersen, Northern District of Illinois, prosecuted this case.

Another scary reminder of why we need to close our border!

Knox News Reports:

“Federal immigration agents have joined the search for the suspect in a fatal hit-and-run that left a Knoxville woman dead last week.

The U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement Agency is assisting in the search for 54-year-old illegal alien Juan Francisco, ICE spokesman Bryan Cox confirmed Tuesday.

Knoxville police have identified Francisco as the suspect who struck and killed Debbie Burgess, 52, as she walked along Pleasant Ridge Road near the Custom Foods of America plant June 8.

Authorities have active arrest warrants for Francisco on charges of vehicular homicide and leaving the scene of an accident.

The suspect’s local criminal history includes a DUI conviction in 2017.

He also was convicted of theft in 2002 for forging another man’s name on a Tennessee driver’s license and Social Security card while working a local landscaping company, according to an arrest warrant. The warrant identifies Francisco as an undocumented immigrant.

Cox said Wednesday that Francisco’s immigration status has not changed in the years since.

In 2004, Francisco was charged with driving without a valid license. That arrest warrant notes he had a Guatemala driver’s license at the time, but no permit to drive in the U.S. The violation was retired in 2010.

Anyone with information on Francisco’s whereabouts is asked to call the Knoxville Police Department’s crime hotline at 865-215-7212.

Big League Politics has more on this story:

An illegal alien living in Tennessee is wanted by local and federal authorities after he allegedly struck and killed a woman with his vehicle last week, killing her.

“The Knoxville Police Department is searching for a suspect in a fatal hit-and-run on April 8, 2019,” according to WVLT. “KPD said it is searching for Juan Francisco, who authorities said was driving a 1998 Dodge pickup truck in the vicinity of Custom Foods at 3600 Pleasant Ridge Road when he struck the victim, Debbie Burgess, with his vehicle.”

Burgess died at the hospital after the incident.

Francisco has a long history of arrests, and authorities have known that he was here illegally since 2002, when he was charged with theft. In 2004, he was charged with reckless driving, and in 2017, he was charged with DUI. It is unclear whether her was ever deported from the United States, despite his lengthy rap sheet.
