VIDEO: Fox host Lou Dobbs exposes shocking details, sheds light on ‘Swamp Creature’ in Trump’s tweets

FEBRUARY 12, 2020

While voicing his outrage of a suggested 9-year prison sentence for his former associate, Roger Stone, President Trump has twice made reference to a “similar” case in which a “Swamp Creature” was only given a two-month sentence.

Thanks to Fox Business anchor Lou Dobbs, the identity and details of the case against the “Swamp Creature” have now come to light.

Prosecutors had recommended a stiff sentence of seven to nine years in prison for Stone, in a filing on Monday, for his conviction on seven counts of obstruction, witness tampering, and making false statements to Congress on charges that stemmed from former Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation.

Attorney General William Barr stepped in, saying that was “extreme, excessive, and grossly disproportionate to the offenses.” President Trump loudly condemned the sentence recommendation as well. All four prosecutors on the case then dramatically resigned. Three had been members of Robert Mueller’s “Russia collusion” investigation.

As the drama unfolded surrounding the Roger Stone case, it was announced Tuesday evening that President Trump had suddenly withdrawn U.S. attorney Jessie Liu’s nomination to serve as the Treasury Department’s undersecretary for terrorism & financial crimes. Her confirmation hearing had been scheduled for this Thursday.

Liu had supervised the case against Trump associate Roger Stone, but had already left the case prior to the sentencing recommendation.  Liu also oversaw the prosecution of former Trump national security adviser Michael Flynn over charges of false statements to the FBI.

President Trump tweeted Tuesday evening, “All starting to unravel with the ridiculous 9 year sentence recommendation!”

In another tweet, Trump added mysteriously, “…And a swamp creature with “pull” was just sentenced to two months in jail for a similar thing that they want Stone to serve 9 years for. A phony Mueller Witch Hunt disgrace. Caught!”

The president again referenced the mysterious “swamp creature” who was only sentenced to two months in jail.

He tweeted, “Two months in jail for a Swamp Creature, yet 9 years recommended for Roger Stone (who was not even working for the Trump Campaign). Gee, that sounds very fair! Rogue prosecutors maybe? The Swamp!”

On Tuesday, prior to the announcement that President Trump had pulled Liu’s nomination, Fox Business anchor Lou Dobbs blew the lid off the case, calling it another “deep state cover-up.”

Dobbs revealed that former Senate Intelligence Committee Security Director James Wolfe had been the one to leak the FISA application used against Carter Page.

“During her time as D.C.’s top attorney, Liu helped Wolfe get away with leaking classified information and lying to the FBI,” Dobbs announced.

“Wolfe was indicted in 2018 for leaking information to four journalists, including one with whom he was having an affair,” Dobbs added.

Liu dropped most of the charges against Wolfe, after three senators asked for leniency in his case, and he served only two months in jail, Dobbs said.

Politico reported on December 12, 2018:

Three current or former leaders of the Senate Intelligence Committee are urging that one of the panel’s former aides escape prison time for lying amid an investigation into leaks related to the ongoing probe of the Trump campaign and possible collusion with Russia.

Senate Intelligence Chairman Richard Burr (R-N.C.), Vice Chairman Mark Warner (D-Va.) and former Chairman Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) are encouraging a federal judge not to put the committee’s former security director, James Wolfe, behind bars for a series of false statements he admitted giving to the FBI during the leak investigation.

“Jim has already lost much through these events, to include his career and reputation, and we do not believe there is any public utility in depriving him of his freedom,” Burr, Warner and Feinstein wrote in a letter Wolfe’s defense attorneys submitted Tuesday to U.S. District Court Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson.

Politico reported that prosecutors were originally urging the judge to sentence Wolfe to two years in prison.He faced a maximum possible sentence of up to five years in prison.

With Liu’s help, he reportedly only got two months.

CNN reporter Marshall Cohen pushed back against President Trump on Tuesday, tweeting, “Is Trump referring to former Senate staffer James Wolfe? Not a fair comparison. Wolfe pleaded guilty to 1 felony count of lying to the FBI. Stone was convicted of 7 felonies — many lies to Congress, plus witness tampering. Also, Stone’s lies touched on national security issues.”

One Twitter user called out Cohen, tweeting, “You might want to read about what James Wolfe actually did. His DC plea was a cover-up to avoid sunlight on why he leaked the FISA application.”
