Over the course of the past two weeks, there have been multiple rumors stemming from leaks coming out of the Eastern District Court of Virginia (EDVA), related to possible subpoenas, search warrants and arrest warrants in the Trump/Flynn/Russia investigation. While former FBI Director James Comey confirmed that he had been working with the Eastern District Court of Virginia prior to his firing, rumors coming from the likes of Claude Taylor and Louise Mensch have insisted that the grand jury in this district is already issuing subpoenas and search warrants related to the Trump investigation.

On the surface, we only have the word of these two pseudo-journalists to go on, but in the past both Taylor and Mensch have been quite accurate, reporting on the FISA warrants many weeks ahead of the mainstream media. With that said, events taking place at the EDVA courthouse this afternoon seem to suggest that something major is underway outside of the public’s glance.

At approximately 1PM EST, the EDVA courthouse closed its doors to the public which we are told is an extremely rare occurrence. Phone calls made to the courthouse have gone unanswered and there is no official statement by anyone there. A little further investigating shows that a plea agreement hearing is scheduled for this coming Monday for a woman named Angelina Lazar. So who is Mrs. Lazar? Well, she just so happened to be a VIP guest at President Trump’s inauguration.

While we don’t want to jump to any conclusions based on this case, the reasoning for the courthouse shutting its doors to the public are a mystery, unless the plea agreement hearing was related to a sealed indictment of some sorts.  It is interesting to note that the EDVA courthouse has also seen their total number of daily dockets stripped down this week significantly, with the senior justices really clearing their schedules.  If there is an imminent surge of arrests about to be made, this looks like it may be the week.

We will stay on top of this story should additional details emerge.

  • Do you know there are three different courthouses in the EDVA? Which one are you referring to, and which one did you call?

      I kinda want to help you here, but I can’t. Pictures tell 1000 words tho:)

      Alexandria! Near the CIA

      • Yeah no, it didn’t happen. I called all three courthouses, On the day in question, there was nothing on the docket in Alexandria. Even a sealed courtroom matter would have been on the docket. That’s the law. Every clerk and spokesperson I spoke with didn’t say “decline to comment”, they said, “what are you talking about.” Nobody in local media was alerted to a sealed courtroom, which you may not know is unconstitutional without merit, and a motion needs to be filed to approve such a thing. No motion was ever filed, and no media lawyer is aware of this. Also, whoever wrote this that is claiming nobody at the courthouse is not answering phone calls is flat out wrong. I had no problem. I have names and numbers of everyone I spoke with who are happy to go on record, contrary to this report. This didn’t happen. Not in Alexandria, Newport, or Norfolk. Not anywhere in the EDVA. And saying it’s near the CIA is irrelevant. Further, LM went on Twitter to say that NBC confirmed this story. NBC’s response is, “No.” So now she’s also making demonstrably false statements about major news outlets as well. There’s nothing in this story about US Marshals or sealed courtrooms that is accurate. Thanks for letting me know though.

    Pseudo Journalists? Great that you credited Louise and Claude, but to call them pseudo journalists is truly beyond the pale Rachel. That’s a real backhanded “compliment” if I ever heard of one. You report, credit them and then insult them. NOT NICE!

    • Spurious

      They are as pseudo as you can get. The article does state that they are credible, but that doesn’t change the fact that both are NOT journalists.

      • Journalists check facts, or at least work to see what they can confirm. Neither of them has done that in this case though. I have. Nothing they have said about this specific matter can be confirmed. Nothing.

    Claude Taylor also reported that an unspecified number Warrants of Execution were issued today from the EDVA in a skiff (secure room) with 3 federal judges. Let me clarify. Fed Marshals can seize assets, execute on search warrants, and arrest. So this could be any/all of the above. Furthermore, they are under seal and you can’t get the numbers on those warrants of execution until the court unseals them and they are public. I believe that overseas individuals can be served warrants through Interpol and various law enforcement officials in other countries and extradition process can begin.
