Ex CD-12 City Councilman Mitch Englander Indicted on Seven Counts of Obstruction-related Charges

Former CD-12 City Councilman Mitch Englander will be free on $50,000 Bail tonight as the US Attorney Office makes public a Seven Count Indictment for obstructing a FBI Investigation of City Hall Corruption, with speculation rampant of more Arrests in the days ahead. 
Former CD-12 City Councilman Mitch Englander will not be wearing his LAPD Reservist Uniform anytime soon.
** Blogger's Notes: As the local US Attorney Office made public its first Indictments resulting from the FBI Investigation of Los Angeles City Hall Corruption, we were reminded of the "2014 Prophetic Musings (with humor)" of former LAPD Chief and CD-8 City Councilman Bernard Parks ......., but surprise what "Horseshoe Criminal" was first to be exposed.
Following last week's Elections, a well-connected source told the Mayor Sam Sister City News Group that Federal Law Enforcement Officials were holding off on taking legal action resulting from its well-reported investigations of nefarious dealings originating at 200 N. Spring Street, to avoid any appearance of interference in the now completed balloting and on this Monday-after ........, they made their surprising first move.
The surprise was that Ex CD-12 City Councilman Mitch Englander, became the of first former Councilman Parks, now "Criminally-charged Colleagues", to be Indicted by the US Attorney Office for what appears to be his thought-challenged attempts to obstruct the FBI's Investigation into his alleged "Pay to Play Misconduct"
As reported by now Los Angeles Magazine Contributor Jon Regardie, the unsuccessful LA County Board of Supervisor Candidate, known as "Fifelander (think Mayberry's Barney Fife)", lived up to his bloggin moniker as evident from the following excerpt. 
the indictment alleges that, at least three times, Englander tried to persuade Businessperson A either to provide false statements to the FBI, or omit relevant information. That includes an encounter on Feb. 12, 2018, when, according to the indictment, Englander and Businessperson A met in the councilman’s car, and Englander instructed him to lie to the FBI. Englander allegedly did this while turning up the volume on the car stereo to obstruct possible listening devices, and driving around the block in a circle. 

More shocking (or not), is that former Englander Chief of Staff and now CD-12 City Councilman John Lee, was one of the then staffers who joined their Boss on a Las Vegas Junket and stated today ......., that he did "everything in his power to pay for and reimburst expenses related to this trip", as reported by the Red State Website.

That noted, we can report via CityWatch LA's Investigated Reporter Daniel Guss, that Englander's Wife and Daughter were in the Courtroom this afternoon as he agreed to turn over his multiple (seven) firearms, passport and pledge to remain in California, in returned for being released on  $50,000 Bail, with a return Court Appearance on Thursday----Scott Johnson.
Wiping away the facade of an ethical, Family Man Mitch Englander.
