Trump impeachment stunt, Ukraine, Qatar
While the Trump supporting media are claiming that just about all the media are against “poor” Donald (!), I still haven’t found a better story on the internet on the firing of US Attorney Geoffrey Berman than the Daily Mail article (!) from my last post in this thread...

A DoJ official said that Berman will be replaced by acting US attorney Craig Carpenito starting on 3 July.

John Bolton claimed in his hot air book that Trump promised Turkish president Erdogan he would interfere in the Halkbank case, which was prosecuted by Berman’s office.

Senate minority leader Chuck Schumer commented on the firing (technically forced resignation) of Berman:
Quote:This late Friday night dismissal reeks of potential corruption of the legal process. What is angering President Trump? A previous action by this US attorney or one that is ongoing?

Berman’s predecessor Preet Bharara (who was was fired after refusing to resign) commented on Bill Barr “Yes, the attorney general is a liar”:

On June 20, 2020, Representative Jerry Nadler, Chair of the House Judiciary Committee, used lots of big words in his announcement (president Donald is probably almost terrified...):
Quote:Last night, Attorney General Bill Barr told us that Geoffrey Berman of the SDNY had resigned—which was untrue. Today, Barr told us that the President asked him to fire Mr. Berman—which may also be untrue, given that the President says he had nothing to do with the decision. The whole thing smacks of corruption and incompetence, which is what we have come to expect from this President and his Attorney General.

Neither the President nor the Department of Justice have offered any explanation for Mr. Berman’s purported dismissal. We know that the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York is engaged in investigations aimed at President Trump’s inner circle. We know, from revelations earlier this week, that the President wanted to have ‘his own people’ in that office to help him with his personal and political needs. And we know that, time and time again, Bill Barr has reached into ongoing criminal investigations in order to protect the President from their consequences. The American people are right to be outraged. Barr may sit in the office of the chief law enforcement officer of the United States, but he clearly cares very little about the law.

The House Judiciary Committee will immediately open an investigation into this incident, as part of our broader investigation into Barr’s unacceptable politicization of the Department of Justice. On Wednesday, the Committee will hear from two whistleblowers who will explain why Barr’s attempt to fire Mr. Berman is part of a larger, ongoing, and wholly unacceptable pattern of conduct. If the President removes Mr. Berman, then we will take additional steps to secure his testimony as well.

There are a lot more interesting investigations started by (the office of) Geoffrey Berman that could be more than enough reason for the “deep state” to fire him!

In January 2019, Berman charged Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya, who was present at the infamous 9 June 2016 meeting at Trump Tower – about damaging information on Clinton, adoption of Russian children, Bill Bowder and/or money laundering by the Russian Prevezon Holdings – with Donald Trump Jr., Jared Kushner, Paul Manafort, and the Russian-Americans Rinat Akhmetshin and Irakly "Ike" Kaveladze (representing Aras Agalarov).
Berman explained the charges against Veselnitskaya:
Quote:Fabricating evidence to affect the outcome of pending litigation not only undermines the integrity of the judicial process, but it threatens the ability of our courts and our government to ensure that justice is done.

He even charged the largest banks of Turkey and Israel for the violating sanctions against Iran (never mind that Donald’s Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross is wheeling and dealing in Iran) and hiding money in offshore accounts:
Donald Trump is very cozy with the Rothschild crime syndicate:
