Puzzling Through the House Requests

In this post, I’ll try to make sense of the requests House Judiciary Committee sent out today.

The requests — which they’ve run by Mueller and SDNY — don’t all make sense. Generally, people are being asked for the documents they’ve already turned over (or had seized) to some investigation. A lot of this is boilerplate, though, so some people are being asked for documents they don’t have.

Alan Garten gets a request, but not Alan Futerfas, in spite of the fact that both Trump lawyers were involved in coaching June 9 meeting testimony.

It excludes some obvious intelligence targets — it doesn’t ask for documents concerning Oleg Deripaska, and Sergei Millian is not on this list — but not others — like WikiLeaks.

Ivanka Trump and Sam Patten are not included.

This is a first run of either the most important association or some surprising ones. I’ll be doing rolling updates of this after more detailed review of the request letters.

    Man, I would kill for a nice dish of Calamari right now. I really Hope it’s on the menu tonight, but sometimes they change the menu to something more convenient. Either way, I will eat like a Prince tonight.

      • Tom says:

        Barbara Les, author of “All Alone on the 68th Floor: How One Woman Changed the Face of Construction”, says that Matt Calamari is known as “The Big Squid”.

          • Tom says:

            Thanks for the correction. Also, I’m reading the Adam Winkler book “Gunfight” you recommended and finding it very interesting. I didn’t realize how much evidence there was to support the individual right to bear arms interpretation of the Second Amendment.

            • bmaz says:

              Like the Citizens United thing, Heller and 2nd Amendment is far more complex that people give it credit for. I still think Scalia wrote from the wrong side of the issue, as I think Adam does, but it is, indeed, a complicated issue.

  3. Wajim says:

    Damn, Wheels, you are a force of nature, a very deep rock spring, a freakin’ Pitbull for the public good. So, how does one go about nominating someone for a Pulitzer, anyway?

      • Shaun Mullen says:

        No, it is a serious question.

        The Pulitzer judges and board have been making a few forays away from recommending and giving prizes to the Usual Suspects like the NYT and WaPo. Marcy would qualify for Public Service and most especially for Explanatory.

          • Bri2k says:

            Concur and would vote for her nomination for such august recognition in a heartbeat. Not only is Ms. Wheeler a national treasure, but she’s done all of us an invaluable service with her incredibly insightful analysis.

            • John boy says:

              Amen, here! here!

              Not only through her “incredibly insightful analysis” but her selfless questioning innocence inspires minions of blog regulars and occasional visitors to pitch in and assist in her quest for truth.

  4. Gerard Gleason says:

    Majority.FM member here. Thank you for your, “one in a million” work. Again, thank you.

  5. Hops says:

    So Trump took an oath to uphold The Constitution, having no idea what it says, nor caring, and in fact, finding it nothing but an impediment.

  6. SICK says:

    IVANKA is named in MANY of the actual document request letters, (like, “All documents relating to the following: Ivanka Trump or her Business Interests”)…

    However, I have not found a single mention of Tom Barrack or Colony Capital.

  7. Savage Librarian says:

    Any thoughts on why Joel Zamel (Psy-Group, et.al.) is not on any of these lists?

  8. Jeremy says:

    What are the consequences of not complying with one of these requests? Is it then that the Judiciary Committee could issue a subpoena? And, is there any consequence related to lying in one of these responses?

    • timbo says:

      None. Unless it’s in the active furtherance of a conspiracy as defined in the Federal legal code?

      • noel guardi says:

        Normally you gather the documents so you can prepare to question some party or witness later to clarify, explain or contextualize the documents to fill gaps in your understanding or get the witness’ gloss if helpful.

  9. vicks says:

    How do NDA”s play into any of this?
    Brad Pascale for example. You know, the fella that started out as the web guy and ended practically inventing “micro targeting” /s
    He was, I believe the first to land a cush job on Trump’s 2020 “election campaign” I would assume that meant signing another NDA?
    It is interesting to hear that Deripaska was not mentioned anywhere. His name was mentioned multiple times in Manafort’s case and the recent lifting of sanctions that involve him directly was imho was sketchy as hell. I also have a wild hair about the timing of Deripaska’s gift from DJT coinciding with that model from Belarus (under the oddest of circumstances) recanting her claims she had proof of Deripaska plotting with Americans to influence the election

      • Vern says:

        Maybe a clarification: I heard Rep Nadler say yesterday that the document requests, to begin with, are for docs already provided to others so as to avoid any privilege claims.

        • bmaz says:

          A subpoena is still a subpoena. It can be fought, irrespective of the prior production. But that is mostly gamesmanship and delay.

  10. Desider says:

    I’m beginning to think they should subpoena Melania & Paolo Zampolli – her handler who brought her (& others) from East Europe to the US as a model (Paris Max lad-mag?) at 26 & introduced her to Trump a couple years later. What was she doing all that time when she was supposed to be modeling but doesn’t have the docs nor the portfolio to show for it? (until Trump started getting her gigs along with a boob job/major plastic surgery). Anyway, that was the Daily Mail story/book review that Trump’s other lawyer helped kill – wonder what Cohen knows about that as well. Zampolli went from ID Group internet modeling agency to “a Soho broker that specializes in sending hot chicks on property visits… It’s a sweet arrangement, as Paramount co-chairman Paolo Zampolli also runs ID Models, from which the realty hotties come” – no surprise that Paramount’s a Trump partner. Also little surprise that in 2004 Zampolli bid on a modelling agency with Jeffrey Epstein, or that he met his long-time Brazilian partner when she was 19. It all converges rather nicely. https://threadreaderapp.com/thread/1102230048344465408.html
    BTW, here’s a typical Trump media setup in Paris in 1998, spinning Melania as “1 of the top 50 models in the world” and a fake Spanish Harper’s Bazaar edition with her on the cover – https://www.univision.com/univision-news/politics/the-life-and-secrets-of-melania-trump

    • So_n_so says:

      Also note that Zampolli purchased diplomatic credentials as some sort of UNICEF ambassador from (I think) Dominica. For the low-low price of (again. I think) $150k, he flies the UN flag at his Union Square townhouse and gets 3 free parking spaces right in front (17th Street).

  11. Democritus says:

    They are going after the Seychelles connection? Think they will investigate MBS, and given the breakout above will someone finally look into that fishy as hell Smith suicide?

    Either way Marcy, EW, what’ve the appropriate nomenclature is. Keep it up! Thank you!

    • emptywheel says:

      Yes. I didn’t lay out the KSA/UAE/Qatar questions specifically; I put them into general graft. But there are requests on those.

  12. BobCon says:

    I’m very curious how the different committees will be dividing the labor. Cummings obviously has his piece, Engel at Foreign Affairs will have his say, I know Maxine Waters will want to get her share if the action…

  13. Vinnie Gambone says:

    The problem with getting Marcy a pulitzer, if f am reading the guidelines correctly, is the nomination can only include 10 samples of the her work.
    I would love to see that food fight when you all have to pick exactly which 1O pieces represents EW’s best work. Empty my ass, – What you have here is an embarrassment of riches. The fact is she should be lauded for the volume of news and analysis provided, almost in real time, not just the quality. Do they give similar awards to psycologist? Because she is helping keep a bunch of of sane, that’s for sure.

    • Rollo T says:

      Hold my beer. I’ll draft a letter to Shinzo Abe and he’ll send a letter and we’ll get her the Pulitzer.

  14. Ckymonstaz says:

    OT but Matt Whitaker just quit the cushy DOJ job Trump likely gave him to try to keep him quiet about their plans/conversations around the SC/SDNY investigations

    Considering he’s potentially on the hook for perjuring himself in front of Congress recently one has to wonder if this is a precursor to him cooperating & coming clean about the reasons he was installed as acting AG to begin with

    • horses says:

      No way. Did you see how he acted before the Committee, on television?

      Absent some new information we don’t know yet, I don’t see him wising up. He’s another fool Trump hired to serve a purpose, and he’s chum now that he’s no longer useful.

      • Gerard Plourde says:

        While I agree that Whittaker wouldn’t wise up on his own, I think it’s possible that a significant other could make him see the light. I believe that’s how Michael Cohen went from “I’d take a bullet for Trump” to the valuable informant currently on display.

  15. buckleup says:

    Do these Doc requests suggest an attempt to investigate the Nukes to Saudi crimes, Flynn-Kushner-Barrack-Prince-Saudi-Russia-Westinghouse-Brookfield-666 5th Ave bailout-Prince conspiracy?

    • Ewan says:

      “Nukes” to Saudis is pushing the enveloppe a bit. We are talking about Pressurized Water Reactors. Not something you can produce a lot of useful (from a military point of view) rubbish with. Yes, there is some plutonium as a byproduct of fission, but good luck with extracting it ; you need tech for this. You need to do something to change a “push button” Westinghouse reactor into something else. If they buy the fuel, for example, there is little they can do. If they want to buy a fuel making factory, like the ones in Iran, that will raise the stakes quite a bit, but nobody said they were interested in that.

      • bmaz says:

        And your point is….what?? Are you arguing that it is just dandy to set malefactors like the Sauds up with a series of nuclear reactors? If not, then what exactly are you saying?

        • Ewan says:

          My point is that “Nukes” and “Nuclear Reactors” are different things. Just like you do not like “Treason” to be invoked relating to activities on behalf of a country with which no war is declared, or “RICO” to be used about something else than something similar to an actual organized crime family, talking of “nukes” for nuclear reactors is not up to the standard of this blog.
          Facts are difficult enough to establish, no need to bring in nuclear war as part of the debate, because it can be most probably proved as untrue…you don’t want EW to be portrayed as a cesspool of lunatics.

          The reason why I detailed why they are different is that the confusion is propagated regularly, including by the Trump administration, when it is convenient politically.

    This is a lot of work, too- the post and categorizations by EW, and the undertaking by our electeds. Wow.

    I am enjoying the date ranges and content of the request for Bannon’s docs, as one example.

    I tracked down Schedule B (instructions) and Schedule C (definitions) just to reassure myself as to what the request recipients may or may not try to weasel out of:

    Sched B Instructions.pdf

    Sched C Definitions.pdf

    Don’t be jealous- this is only the first batch. I’m sure they’ll be sending you a subpoena eventually.

  19. William D McCann says:

    Thanks for sorting out this stuff today, Marcy. I’m so grateful for your guidance into the heart of this darkness. Rayne’s focus on the golf courses wows me. Emptywheel and the comment chorus are an amazing read.

  20. cat herder says:

    What Nadler said on Maddow Monday night is that these initial requests were for materials that the parties have already produced to other investigations, so they really have no basis to withhold any of it.

  21. CD54 says:

    As per EW’s usual: thorough and comprehensive. However, I suspect EW has several critical questions in pocket and maybe also a relevant mapping to the specific requests from Round 1 (or suggestions for Round 2?). Give us some hints!

  22. Ryan says:

    They should investigate Rupert Murdoch.
    They should subpoena Julian Assange.
    These two Australians destroyed America.
    Rupert Murdoch made America a country of Hate and Division.
    They should investigate Rupert Murdoch.
    Rupert Murdoch should have contributed to some of the crime activities.
    Where is Sean Hannity in the list?

  23. Ollie says:

    Last night on my twitter feed (locked) I saw this. I clicked on the link to take me to EW. The story was about Cohen and it just blasted him and the lies. When on the comments page, there are side pop ups which allows us to go to either the next story in front or following the one I’m on. Here they didn’t click on another story but had one word: TRASH…..RUBBISH

    The page I was on at the bottom read: Comments closed

    Now. I tweeted bmaz and then posted w/o doc on a page from Rayne. I think it is a phishing issue although I am not sure. I am sure I was freaked out. For myself and privacy and safety to being concerned for EW.

    Could someone address this please? Unfortunately, when I freaked out? I closed the fake EW window w/o taking a screenshot of it. Thanks

      • ollie says:

        Oh thank you so much bmaz. I was scared cause I didn’t recognize anyone and the side things. I kinda sorta feel foolish but my computer skills are very limited and I got so anxious. I know there are a lot of ‘forces’ out there that would probably like our Ms. Wheeler to be quiet. Shoulders are down again! Thank you again. Have a great day sir.

  24. Pete says:

    Last night on Maddow Nadler indicated that “all” of these requests were for records that had already been turned over to other “agencies” with – my take – the exception of OSC and SDNY. He seemed to not foresee much pushback leading to subpoenas in this first round since the records had already been handed over to others, but did not rule it out.

    I assume procedurally they have to have all records “given” to them directly before moving wider and deeper and I assume then possibly using subpoenas.

    Since he mentioned some interviews were in the process of being scheduled, I assume many interviews are with staff (non public) and not all interviews are done in full committee hearings open or closed.

    [quote] Hmm… going through the House Judiciary doc production letters and raising my eyebrow at Rinat Akhmetshin getting a request for doc related to 2017 & 2018 Trump-Putin meetings… // Goldstone, Kaveladze, Samochornov didn’t get that. It wasn’t common. Not even Sater got that.. / I went through all the document requests and this is the list of the people asked to produce docs on Trump-Putin meetings. Lots of indicted people. // Many of the people on Trump’s campaign were not asked for this production, so Akhmetshin really stands out. [end quote]

  28. e.a.f. says:

    Thank you for the lists and the categories. It makes things so much simpler When you’re following a scandal at home in the B.C. Leg, the one in Ottawa, and the American one, it really helps to have lists like this. As long as I remember all of the names, there is no dementia, although some think I’m some what demented for following it all.

    it was lovely to read a couple of posts before how there is a connection between one Canadian and the American stuff, Ezra Levant and Jerome Corsi.

    its tough when they have Cohen testifying on the same day, last week, as Jody Wilson-Rayboult (Canada) and today, Cohen and Butts (Canada), along with the Clerk of the Privy council.

    Had to give up on following Brexit. I’ll wait for the summary version.
