Communiclique CEO Andy Powers Strategy – Evade Obfuscate and Delay

Communiclique (AKA Clique API) CEO, Andy Powers appeared in Alexandra VA US District Court today. The hearing was scheduled at 11 AM.

Powers entered the courtroom and took a seat in the middle section of the 3rd row and waited for the case precededing his  to conclude. He was accompanied by an anonymous civilian, perhaps his mysterious benefactor (more on that later). This was my first opportunity to observe Powers up close. He’s a goofy little dufus just like Mr. Cranky. The short, physically unimpressive little man, was carefully dressed, in tan slacks, a grey shirt buttoned up high to the top button on his neck, a blue blazer, and glasses.

He nearly successfully covered up 98% of his thug-life tattoos that scream… hey look at me… I’m a rebel. A few remnants of tats peeking above his very high collar buttoned to the top button and those on his hands. In pictures, he tries hard as hell to appear like a menacing figure, in life… he’s a small wimpy looking geek. I wonder why he didn’t want the judge to see him all tatted up like a prison yard goon?

His court-appointed public defender, Eugene Gorokhov of Eugene Gorokhov, entered the courtroom a few moments later and sat behind his sleazy douchenozzle client.

At approximately 11:38 AM the Judge, called Powers case. The bailiff, who I swear, might have been Zach Galifianakis, opened the gate to allow the US Attorney, Powers, and his Attorney to be seated at their respective Plaintiff and Defendant tables.

… and then it happened. Power’s attorney informed the court the defendant is dismissing him, his public defender to be replaced with private council.  The Judge asked the prosecutor if there was any objection and there was none. The judge then asked Powers to sign a waiver of his right to a speedy trial… get that? A right to a speedy trial. Powers considers a speedy trial a handicap and not a right… so he happily signed.

Folks, this is Andy’s strategy, of evasion, obfuscation, and delay justice. In Andy Powers’ last three trials Commonwealth lawsuit, Deleware Bankruptcy Case, and now this case, Powers’ councils have either resigned or he’s fired them.

Make no mistake, Powers who appeared in court for an arraignment on these 8 charges,

  1. Wire fraud, February 17, 2016 – $1,000,0011
  2. Wire fraud, August 8, 2016 – $115,200
  3. Wire fraud, September 6, 2017 – $100,005
  4. Wire fraud, September 1, 2017 – $440,000
  5.  Mail fraud, April 4, 2017
  6. Inducing interstate travel to defraud, November 29, 2016
  7. Unlawful Monetary Transaction, September 21, 2015 – $75,308 to purchase a 2015 GMC Yukon
  8. Unlawful Monetary Transaction, September 25, 2015 – $157,050 to purchase a 2015 BMW i8

is guilty. He is going to be doing hard time in federal prison. There are other charges likely to come including, attempting to defraud the bankruptcy court, embezzlement, and impersonating a human. But for the moment, Powers’ strategy is delay, delay, delay.  Today’s arraignment, a court process where Andy pleads, guilt or innocence culminating in the scheduling of a trial date, was previously delayed as Andy Powers entered into plea bargaining negotiations with the state. When the US Attorney realized that Powers was not negotiating in good faith and had no intention of making a deal, the arraignment moved forward and was scheduled for today.  The new arraignment date is now scheduled for 11 AM on August 16. What are the chances that Power’s new council enters into renewed plea bargaining sessions delaying that? My money is on that date is going to be pushed out.

Powers is going to jail. It is inevitable… he’s like a drowning man being slowly dragged out to sea by a riptide… he keeps grabbing onto flotsam and jetsam to stay barely remain afloat. Eventually, he’s going to sink like a stone and drown. But in the meantime, he’s holding on for his dear worthless life. Every day he delays is another day he doesn’t begin the portion of his life dressed in orange prison pajamas. Who knows… maybe if he can delay long enough the world will end and he’ll never be forced to learn how to make license plates.

I ask this question, a defendant must be indigent to qualify for a public defender… where did this previously indigent scumbag get the money to afford a private attorney after begging for and being granted a taxpayer-paid public defender? Why did we taxpayers pay this crooks bills if he could afford a private attorney? I’m following down a lead (check back for updates) that there is a private citizen who is currently funding Andy’s life. Why? Ohhhhh, I don’t know. Perhaps, Powers who has likely embezzled $50 million stashed it away somewhere? It’s unlikely he spent it all. Where did all that money go? Did he move money to an account controlled by his new patron?

I have a feeling there’s money sitting somewhere.

Stay tuned for updates but until further notice, the next arraignment date is August 16.
