Here at Rogue Money, we have frequently talked about, both in seriousness and in jest, that President Trump is playing '4 and 5-d chess' in his actions to try to counter the Deep State. But what many seem to forget is that chess is a two player game, and a game where there are three distinct parts to it.
The opening, the middle game, and the end game.
Additionally, every move one does is often either countered by their opponent, or ignored if the other player believes they can enact their own 'gambit' in order to capture the king.
This week saw the advent of several chess moves by both sides, and even a few feints to try to get their opponent, in this case President Trump, to fall for their move. Fortunately in the case of Syria, the President held back his jumping in head first without fully understanding the ramifications an assault on Bashir Assad would have.
On the flip side however, the Deep State made a mistake, and on April 13 President Trump began his attack on both Special Council Mueller and the Deep State's attempt to get him out of office through the simple act of pardoning former Bush adviser Scooter Libby.
Today, President Donald J. Trump issued an Executive Grant of Clemency (Full Pardon) to I. "Scooter Lewis Libby, former Chief of Staff to Vice President Richard Cheney, for convictions stemming from a 2007 trial. President George W. Bush commuted Mr. Libby's sentence shortly after his conviction. Mr. Libby, nevertheless, paid a $250,000 fine, performed 400 hours of community service, and served two years of probation.
In 2015, one of the key witnesses against Mr. Libby recanted her testimony, stating publicly that she believes the prosecutor withheld relevant information from her during interviews that would have altered significantly what she said. The next year, the District of Columbia Court of Appeals unanimously reinstated Mr. Libby to the bar, reauthorizing him to practice law. The Court agreed with the District of Columbia Disciplinary Counsel, who stated that Mr. Libby had presented "credible evidence" in support of his innocence, including evidence that a key prosecution witness had “changed her recollection of the events in question.”
Before his conviction, Mr. Libby had rendered more than a decade of honorable service to the Nation as a public servant at the Department of State, the Department of Defense, and the White House. His record since his conviction is similarly unblemished, and he continues to be held in high regard by his colleagues and peers.
In light of these facts, the President believes Mr. Libby is fully worthy of this pardon. "I don't know Mr. Libby," said President Trump, "but for years I have heard that he has been treated unfairly. Hopefully, this full pardon will help rectify a very sad portion of his life."

Now the question that I'm sure is popping up in everyone's mind is, how does this have any affect on Robert Mueller and the fake Russian investigation? To see the entire picture you have to understand that Scooter Libby's arrest during the Valerie Plame investigation functioned in the same capacity that General Michael Flynn's did for the Russian Interference investigation... ie... they were both indicted through prosecutorial aggression meant to find a scalp rather than admitting that there was nothing to their investigation.
So why the pardon for Scooter Libby more than a decade after the event and why now? Because for everyone in Washington, and especially for Robert Mueller, Trump just signaled to the world that he will simply pardon every single individual, probably including Michael Flynn and Manafort, should Mueller attempt to use (forgive the word) bullshit in order to justify his continuing with his investigation.
Now there are also several other combinations (chess lingo) in play here regarding Scooter Libby that go beyond Trump simply sending a message. Scooter Libby was being represented by Victoria Toensing, who is the wife of Joe DiGenova and who are both strong advocates against the misconduct being done by Robert Mueller. In addition, Toensing represents William Campbell, who reportedly has dirt on both Mueller and the Uranium One scandal.
Just think about everything that has transpired so far this week, and the moves and counter-moves heading into the end of day here on Friday. We have the false flag operation of a chemical weapons attack that just today was revealed by the Russians to have been contrived by British intelligence through their White Helmets G-NGO. We had the attempt by Mueller to unconstitutionally raid President Trump's attorney at gunpoint to collect information that had nothing to do with Russian interference in the 2016 elections but alleged hush money payoffs to a porn star. Then we also had today the OIG report which validates Trump firing Andrew McCabe for perjury and obstruction, and finally we have Deep State shill Paul Ryan stepping down as Speaker of the House come November.
The pieces are being moved into place here in the middle of Trump vs. the Deep State's 4-D chess match. And the next move may come as early as this weekend, when Trump performs a Rook Lift by firing both Rosenstein and Mueller.
