Manafort SAR Leaker Edwards Secrets Opposed by Inner City Press Now Yemen Clinton China

By Matthew Russell Lee, Video, thread, Patreon

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Aug 5 – The U.S. Treasury employee accused in October 2018 of leaking Suspicious Activity Reports about Paul Manafort and others, Natalie Edwards, pleaded guilty to one count on January 13, 2020 before U.S. District Court Southern District of New York Judge Gregory H. Woods.

  Edwards got a plea agreement for between zero and six months and a $9500 fine which her lawyer afterward told Inner City Press was a standard fine. Video here; live tweeted thread of plea proceeding here. More on Patreon here.

 On August 4, Inner City Press filed its second opposition to the attempt to make Edwards' submissions to SDNY Judge Woods disappear as supposedly not judicial documents. A day later, Inner City Press' submission has not been docketed; the US Attorney's Office / DOJ is silent on this attempted disappearance of evidence.

 In this context it may be useful to consider a document signed "May Edwards" which says she has and has submitted information on questions including "Yemen (2015)," Libya, Iran, China, Maria Butina and the Clinton Foundation, photo 1 here, 2 here.

If this is public, what is the basis of trying to disappear in full what Edwards filed? One argument made is attorney client. But if Edwards now has a free / government paid lawyer, trying to hide documents, who was paying for Brafman & Associates? Inner City Press entirely opposes the disappearance of these judicial documents, submitted to SDNY Judge Gregory Woods. Watch this site.

Background: On July 21 Judge Woods held a 5 pm proceeding at which he was asked to treat Edwards' filings as if they had never been filed, and withhold them from the Press and public.

Inner City Press immediately filed opposition, to Judge Woods chambers, copying the new defense lawyer Stephanie M. Carvlin and AUSA Daniel Richenthal, below.

 On July 22, after docketing Inner City Press' letter or application, Judge Woods to his credit  provided time to Edwards or her lawyer to respond: "ORDER as to Natalie Mayflower Sours Edwards. On July 21, 2020, a representative of Inner City Press requested that the Court file on the public docket of this case copies of materials that the defendant had previously submitted to the Court ex parte. See Dkt. No. 60.... The Court directs that counsel for the defendant respond to the application no later than July 30, 2020. To the extent that the United States wishes to be heard with respect to the application it is directed to respond by the same date. Any reply in support of the application must be filed no later than August 6, 2020."

 Now on August 4, Inner City Press has filed its reply, here - which after 23 hours has still not been docketed. Watch this site.
