In April 2018, Special Counsel Mueller and the DOJ crossed yet another bridge too far, when Mueller recommended (and Deputy Attorney General RodRosenstein approved) a raid on the home and office of President Trump’s then-personal attorney, Michael Cohen.
At the time of the raid, Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton tweeted: “The raid is just one more reason to shut the Mueller operation down – it’s constitutionally suspect, ethically compromised, & frankly has no reason for being – given the fact that there’s no evidence of Trump-Russia collusion.”

Judicial Watch began an investigation that has resulted in another Judicial Watch “Mueller Oversight Project” lawsuit. We filed a FOIA lawsuit against the Justice Department for all records related to that April 9th raid.

Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton: “On its face, the raid on President Trump’s then-lawyer seemed abusive and out of line. And so it is not surprising that the Mueller Special Counsel and the Justice Department would ignore FOIA law and refuse to respond to our basic requests for information about this extraordinary raid.”

better question is – under what authority was Mueller appointed?
He is acting like a super federal prosecutor, with power even greater than a federal prosecutor.
A federal prosecutor is a position that is classified as an officer of the USA and thus must be appointed by the president and confirmed by the Senate.
Look up The Appointments Clause in Article II, Section 2, Clause 2 of US Constitution.
How does Rosenstein usurp presidential and senatorial powers and not one calls him out on it?

Isn't it funny how the FBI, the DOJ, members of the Secret Service, local and state police, government officials & highly elected politicians can get in bed with certain criminals in this country and commit crimes against the people in this country and never be held accountable for the crimes they commit and cover it up because they have the power to do so. Mueller was the US Attorney in Massachusetts back in 1988. I would love to tell what I know to Judicial Watch.

We all know that any attempt to investigate a Satanic Nazi Republican is a partisan witch hunt! We need more Satanic Traitors running the country!

And when a Satanic Nazi commits a crime, it's not a crime because Satanic Nazis are incapable of committing crimes! Truth isnt truth anymore anyways, so truth is lies. Everybody knows that…

Mueller needs to be shot dead on sight period

Mitch Ryder · August 25, 2018 at 3:47 pm

ain't it sometime they can go through 4 million documents regarding trump and his lawyer in speedy time but they can't hardly go through any regarding stzrok ect

Budget Hitman · August 25, 2018 at 4:16 pm

Do you have any idea how difficult it is to acquire a "no knock" warrant on an attorney's office!? They did it because they suspected Cohen himself of multiple crimes, that he just plead guilty to btw. Every piece of info taken in that raid was vetted by a legal master before being turned over to any investigators. This guy is a shill and simply isnt telling you the whole story.

Does this guy at any point admit that Judicial Watch is a conservative group attempting to protect Trump from justice, in this video or any other? That's what it is, nothing more. The GOP has gotten together to fight AGAINST Trump's own DOJ to protect Trump from justice. I assumed that this video must be old considering what we now know about Cohen but nope, it was posted two days after Cohen confessed to everything he was accused of and agreed to work with Mueller against Trump down the road. And dont believe that Cohen is done talking. The info gathered in the raid on his office is strong enough that Mueller doesnt need Cohen to back it up, maybe confirm a signature here and there. Cohen was given a plea deal so that he would talk about everything else he knows.

Veterans have been used and shit on for over a hundred years, we need to take charge and physically arrest the tyrannical factions of the Doj, fbi, nsa,Congress,senat, we need a call to arms and ten thousand Vets to get it done. Semper Fi

eric barron · August 25, 2018 at 4:33 pm

If Trump would just order the arrest of Hillary Obama Comey, Muller and the rest of the communist by our Marines

acorn sucks · August 25, 2018 at 4:35 pm

Cohen is a weak man. Trump is incredible, pray for him.

Perry Rhodes · August 25, 2018 at 4:45 pm

I keep hearing that if Trump fires Mueller and ends The Witch Hunt The Fallout from that would be horrific, I don't know of anyone that would not vote for Trump in 2020 if he did so.

proboy1 · August 25, 2018 at 5:24 pm

Time to defund the FBI DOJ & MUELLER until we gat the documents ! !

proboy1 · August 25, 2018 at 5:25 pm

HELL it's time to send in the MARINES to stop this corrupt banana republic ! !

Kathleen Murphy · August 25, 2018 at 6:52 pm

Are you trying to get documents on the tax payers funded sexual harassment cases in Congress? Is the lack of knowledge because the majority are democrats…and other not so proper facts

Mata Pendejos · August 25, 2018 at 10:09 pm

Mueller should be in Guantanamo Bay with a black sack over his head.

Friendly Fribble · August 26, 2018 at 2:12 am

Judicial Watch is called out in David Brock’s memo to bringing down Trump https://www.scribd.com/document/337535680/Full-David-Brock-Confidential-Memo-On-Fighting-Trump
They outline what’s happening now!!!

Richard Dewey · August 26, 2018 at 4:38 am

Dont they know that at some point, the armed populist may lose their patience with their criminality? We the Patriotic People are the law, not them! We'll have final say, no matter what they do. Every individual will be held accountable.

taxpayer here · August 26, 2018 at 4:38 am

Judicial Watch. What the doj, fbi, cia and liberal law enforcement aspire to be….or should.

Linda Leslie · August 26, 2018 at 9:31 am

Thank you and Judicial Watch for everything that you do! Keep up the good fight for America!

Joelene Preising · August 26, 2018 at 12:21 pm

The chief witch-hunter is Rosenliar at the pivotal point of the investigation

cymanca · August 26, 2018 at 12:56 pm

Mueller did not pick 17 attorneys. A much smaller group, organized by Weissman picked Mueller. They picked him because of his then sterling reputation , his more than friendship with Comey and his debt to the Clinton’s. Makes sense that there was a lot more than “duty to country” to get Mueller to leave the airbag settlement job and to go play CYA for himself and it appears a cast of hundreds

James Schrang · August 26, 2018 at 1:13 pm

Keep it up, Tom. God bless you and the Team!!!

It still looks like Washington DC is riding out Obama and his 22 shinanags. That includes every one involved, playing the "good cop bad cop role."

I cannot believe the Criminal Clinton Cartel has not been raided. Unbelievable and disgusted with DOJ

Bruce Edwards · August 27, 2018 at 8:13 pm

evil demonratas and evil rhinos are traitors !!!ship them all to gitmo for military treason trials and execution !!!!!! trump 2020 magakag !!!

leos rule · August 27, 2018 at 11:39 pm

Of course they knew what they were doing. According to a recent interview Trump had with Ainsley Eardhart, Rosenstein is the one who suggested the appointment of Wray to FBI. Rosenstein is the one who sent Trump the letter recommending the firing of Comey – for the purpose of getting Mueller appointed to special council. Rosenstein is the one who signed the FISA. Rosenstein is the one who approved the raid on Cohen & Manafort.
Rosenstein is the one who demanded recusal of NY AG (name?) in the Cohen case. Rosenstein is the one whose wife works in an agency thwarting justice (name & agency?).
I know what I'm saying is true even though I am short on exact details.
Rosenstein definitely needs to be impeached – along with Sessions who has not only recused himself from anything Russian (be it Trump, Clinton, or whoever) but has also recused himself from anything Hillary – including CF.
IN ADDITION to that, Sessions has refused to fire Ohr AND has refused to reopen the IRS scandal case (as you – JW – know).
These issues MUST be dealt with on the behalf of this country.!!
And THANK YOU JW for all you do.!!
Although I can't give much, you are the ONLY organization that I donate to and it's good to see that donation being honestly spent.

Kevin Heine · August 28, 2018 at 8:41 am

So what you're saying Tom, is that there is corruption even within the rank-and-file of the FBI and DOJ.

Mark DiCicco · August 29, 2018 at 4:15 am

Did Mueller illegally go into NSA records to find the dirt on Cohn and Manafort? Then in turn, goes after both by raiding there homes & businesses to squeeze them of their crimes, from the evidence they already knew by getting it illegally and a violation of the 4th amendment ? If so Mueller is misusing his security clearance and violating the constitution! How did Mueller know to go after these two men in the first place???
EXCLUSIVE: Two Top NSA Veterans Expose Shocking History of Illegal Spying. Also Robert Mueller is mentioned in this video, surprise, surprise! [pay close attention and listen at time frame 10:42] And guess who was the Director of the CIA at the time? (Published on Jun 4, 2014)

See The Future · August 29, 2018 at 3:16 pm

Sessions, Rosenstein and Mueller are anti America traitors and should be hung.

lem farba · August 29, 2018 at 5:25 pm

You'll notice you never see Judicial Watch being interviewed by CNN, CBS, NBC, etc.

Robert Hudson · August 29, 2018 at 10:24 pm

The cops killed hundreds of innocent unarmed Americans last year. Jewdicial Watch, do a story on those dead Americans.

Robert Hudson · August 29, 2018 at 10:25 pm

Jewdicial Watch is just Fox Jews legal brown shirts. Attack dogs. Animals.

J WILTON · August 30, 2018 at 9:19 pm

I think the actual motivation for raiding Cohens offices has more to do with the evidence he possessed regarding a homosexual affair involving John Kerry. Watch a video on YT BY JOHN WARD. Besides being excellent in his uncovering facts he has an absolute killer sense of humor that is on a level all by itself. Really. Check it out.

J WILTON · August 30, 2018 at 9:31 pm

The Mueller investigation should no longer exist since it was based on deliberate lies, proven many times over. So JW has, as usual, insight that can’t be ignored. JW has the absolute best information and they do the best investigative work and spend a lot of time in court actually suing to get the information—and then they provide here for free! JW never asks you to donate or subscribe, but they should. I know his name is Tom Fitton but at this point he is JW to me for all intents and purposes. This is the first place to go to find out actual facts.
