The American Gestapo
by Pete Ketcham
I am sure there is no question in the readers mind what the German Gestapo represented to the German people under Nazi rule. It was usually a foregone conclusion, that if the Gestapo knocked on your door, you chances of ending up either in a concentration camp or dead were almost 100%. There was simply no defense or recourse by the average German citizen against any action the Gestapo wished to employ against them.
With the foregoing description of the German Gestapo, one may wonder what could be similar in our government to such an agency. Although there is nothing in our government to equal the physical brutality of the German Gestapo, there is indeed a group of corrupt federal people wielding the same brutal legal power as the German Gestapo, and that is the Federal Prosecutors. They work under the Dept of Justice (DOJ) and their agency is called “Office of United States Attorneys”. There are 93 US attorney offices throughout the US and it’s possessions. There are approximately 5300 Assistant United States Attorneys (AUSA) working in these offices. This agency has approximately a 95% conviction rate, only exceeded by the 100% conviction rate of the Gestapo. Consequently, when the Federal Prosecutors come “knocking on your door”, you will have an opportunity to feel the same apprehension that the German citizen felt under Hitler’s Gestapo.
I am not implying that all of the employees of this agency are corrupt, nor all the trials this agency has been involved in are not justified and fair, but the fact remains, the leadership of this agency under the Obama administration became corrupt and abusive. The present rogue, out of control Mueller investigation is a continuation of this type of abusive prosecution as they look for a crime Trump committed, and simultaneously cover up the crimes of Hillary.
My opinion of the corrupt federal prosecutor’s procedure is based in part on the book by attorney Sidney Powell, “Licensed to Lie”, and the book by attorney Greg Jarrett “The Russian Hoax”. The book “Licensed to Lie” deals primarily with the 2006 prosecution of the Enron Corporation, Author Anderson Corporation, and the prosecution of Ted Stevens Alaska Senator. The federal prosecutors in these cases intimidated and threatened potential witnesses for the defense, and withheld exculpatory evidence. They destroyed two major corporations, put innocent people in prison, and left thousands of corporate employees (28,500) without a job. Even though most of the decisions in both of these cases were later overturned, the federal prosecutors were not held accountable in any manner for the trail of destruction they left behind.
The book “The Russian Hoax” is dealing with the present Mueller/Trump investigation, revealing the same abusive tactics as used in the Enron and Ted Stevens trials. This should not be surprising, as Mueller and his prime “pit-bull” attorney Andrew Weissmann were both deeply involved in the Enron/Anderson trial.
A present day ongoing example of this abusive Gestapo type activity by federal prosecutors is their actions against the ranchers Bundy and Hammond. This abuse was characterized in part by withholding exculpatory evidence, intimidating witnesses, and pressing for severe sentencing of a minor crime, (if indeed there were a crime). I am not judging the legality of the Bundy’s and Hammond actions, but commenting on the unconstitutional conduct of the federal prosecutors as they pursued these cases.
In conclusion I would encourage the reader to read these two books (“Licensed to Lie”, & “The Russian Hoax”) to get the full background of this prosecutorial abuse. Even though the comparison of the Federal Persecutors to the Gestapo may seem extreme and harsh, I believe you will see this comparison is justified as you read these books and observe the present activities of Mueller and his team of liberal Democrat Trump haters hang Manafort out to dry, intimidate witnesses, and lie in their pursuit of the president.
