So far what we know is that after 6 months and tens of millions of dollars, Robert Mueller, who should be under indictment himself, has charged two people with money laundering and conspiracy and one has pled guilty of lying to the FBI.
Manafort organized a public relations campaign for a group called European Centre for a Modern Ukraine (ECMU), which lobbied the U.S. to support Ukraine’s EU push. Podesta’s company was one of many firms that worked on the campaign. Manafort and Richard Gates moved millions around in an effort to evade taxes. Evade taxes? This was supposed to be about Rusian collusion to influence an election.
Robert Mueller’s big catch was low-level, unpaid intern
In the 14-page document, Robert Mueller’s prosecutors maintain that Papadopoulos, a twentysomething think-tank nerd who jumped ship from the Ben Carson campaign, met with individuals posing as Russian officials who promised dirt on Hillary Clinton.
There was nothing illegal about what Papadopoulos did. The only crime alleged in the indictment is that he lied to federal agents when they asked him about the contacts last January.
Manafort charges grew out of records seized in ‘no-knock’ raid
The cache of lobbying records appears to be crucial to some of the charges against Manafort and Gates. The two men had previously sought to conceal information about their role in the Ukrainian lobbying campaign — which took place before they joined the Trump campaign — developing a “false and misleading cover story” to distance themselves from it and providing “false talking points” to one of the lobbying firms it hired, the indictment charges
Paul Manafort judges: Who are Deborah A. Robinson and Amy Berman Jackson?
IF YOU THINK THESE ARE IMPARTIAL JUDGES, THINK AGAIN
The case will then be handed over to an Obama-appointed judge who donated $1,000 to former President Bill Clinton’s 1992 presidential campaign.
U.S. District Magistrate Judge Deborah A. Robinson, the preliminary judge, has overseen cases involving former Washington, D.C. Mayor Marion Barry and NBA player Allen Iverson, according to Tickle the Wire, a law news website.
Tickle the Wire also reported Robinson presided in the trial of Lewis “Scooter” Libby, an ex-White House aide who was convicted of lying to authorities and obstructing the probe of a 2003 leak of a CIA operative’s identity.
Earlier this year, Jackson — a Harvard Law School graduate — dismissed a lawsuit brought against former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton by relatives of victims of the 2012 Benghazi attack.
Jackson ruled that Clinton neither enabled the attack by communicating through her private email server, nor did she defame the victims families in the aftermath, the Washington Times reported.
White House: Trump has ‘no intention’ to fire Mueller
I HOPE TRUMP IS NOT NAIVE ENOUGH TO BELIEVE THAT SINCE HE’S DONE NOTHING ILLEGAL NOTHING CAN HAPPEN TO HIM. HE DOES NOT REALIZE THE INTENSITY WITH WHICH THESE SCUM WANT TO DESTROY HIM.
Sanders also said there have been no conversations at the White House about potential pardons for those charged. “I think we should let the process play through before we start looking at that,” she said.
Trump’s former campaign chairman, Paul Manafort, and Manafort’s business associate, Rick Gates, have been charged on 12 counts, including illegal foreign lobbying, tax evasion and bank fraud.
Dem proposes constitutional amendment to limit Trump’s pardon power
Under Rep. Steve Cohen’s (Tenn.) proposed constitutional amendment, presidents would be prohibited from pardoning themselves, their families, members of their administrations, or people who worked on their presidential campaigns. Cohen plans to introduce the amendment on Tuesday when the House returns to session.
THIS, OF COURSE, WOULD BE SUBJECT TO CHANGE WHEN THE PRESIDENT IS A DEMOCRAT
It’s Happening: Clinton Bundler Tony Podesta Steps Down, Dissolves the Podesta Group
MANAFORT WAS WORKING FOR THIS PUKE WHEN HE COMMITTED HIS ALLEGED CRIMES. PODESTA SHOULD BE INVESTIGATED AND CHARGED. WHETHER HE WILL OR NOT REMAINS TO BE SEEN.
Interestingly, many of these charges could also be applied to Podesta. Manafort worked for the Party of Regions, a pro-Russia Ukrainian political party whose president, Viktor Yanukovych, ruled Ukraine between 2010 and 2014. Amid the “Panama Papers” leak emerged a Party of Regions ledger listing $12.7 million in cash payments for Manafort
Both Manafort and the Podesta Group failed to register as lobbyists acting on behalf of a foreign agent under the Foreign Agents Registration Act (FARA).
THIS LAW HAS BEEN ON THE BOOKS SINCE THE 1920’S BUT NOBODY HAS BEEN CHARGED WITH IT SINCE 1966, EVEN THOUGH MANY PEOPLE DO IT. MANAFORT IS A SPECIAL CASE, APPARENTLY.
Hillary Clinton Hung Out With Sidney Blumenthal And Tony Podesta This Weekend
SHE DOESN’T SEEM TO HAVE A CARE IN THE WORLD
Democratic California Sens. Dianne Feinstein and Kamala Harris made appearances at Clinton birthday party, where they were greeted with heaping helpings of champagne, finger food and chocolate cake. Lawmakers were not the only people in attendance. Clinton celebrated her 70th birthday alongside David Brock, the founder of liberal media outlet Media Matters, and Brian Fallon, one of her campaign advisers.
Clinton on Russia investigation: “We know everything we need to know”
THIS BITCH HAS SOME BALLS, I’LL GIVER HER THAT.
She added, “We know everything we need to know, we just have to make sure that members of Congress do their jobs and hold the president accountable.”
Honeypot: Was the Trump Camp’s Meeting With Russian Lawyer All a Clinton Set-Up?
The Fusion GPS connection raises a supremely interesting question: Did the Clinton campaign actually orchestrate the meeting between Trump campaign officials and Veselnitskaya? Is the entire Trump-Russia collusion narrative the result of a Clinton set-up?
After PJ Media’s Liz Sheld suggested the idea to this reporter, it seemed increasingly plausible. Not only does the timeline work out, but Clinton attacked Trump as Putin’s puppet and Clinton’s connections to Russia had been powerfully reported in 2015. What better way to distract from Clinton’s ties to Russia than proving “collusion” on Trump’s part?
With a veritable army of democrat operatives there is no way somebody was not going to get charged with something. Mueller’s hit squad announced illegally on Friday that indictments were coming down on Monday (today). Trey Gowdy was livid that they broke the law by leaking grand jury testimony. One problem…laws don’t matter when your intent is to bring down a legally elected president.
Robert Mueller’s well-timed indictment
THIS IS A STANDARD DEMOCRAT PLAY… RELEASE SOMETHING VAGUE ON FRIDAY TO GIVE THE TALKING HEADS SOMETHING TO TALK ABOUT TO AVOID HAVING TO ADDRESS URANIUM ONE AND THE CONSPIRACY INVOLVED IN THE FAKE RUSSIAN DOSSIER
The key is that the indictment comes in late October. Right before a November election. There is pattern of October indictments against Republicans.
A previous indictment that came at this time of year was against Sheriff Joe Arpaio. On October 25, 2016, Arpaio was indicted for contempt of court. On November 8, 2016, he lost his re-election bid. In 2017, he was denied the right to a jury trial, convicted, then pardoned by President Trump.
Paul Manafort and Business Associate Rick Gates Charged in Mueller Witch Hunt – Told to Surrender— FOR TAX FRAUD!
Former Trump Campaign manager of three months Paul Manafort was charged today in the Robert Mueller witch hunt of the Donald Trump campaign.
Rick Gates, his longtime business associate, was also charged according to news reports.
Manafort was Donald Trump’s campaign manager for three months in 2016.
CNN’s Toobin: Trump Campaign Is Not Mentioned in Manafort Indictment
Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort is indicted on $75 million money-laundering charge and accused of conspiring against the U.S. as Mueller probe ramps up – but Trump says it all happened ‘years ago’
The first charges from the probe of possible Russian meddling in the 2016 U.S. presidential election were unsealed Monday morning
Paul Manafort and Rick Gates surrendered to face charges including conspiracy against the United States and conspiracy to launder money
Other charges are being an unregistered agent of a foreign principal, making false and misleading Foreign Agents Registration Act (FARA) statements and seven counts of failure to file reports of foreign bank and financial accounts
Manafort left his home shortly after 8:00 a.m. to turn himself in; he and Gates were processed at FBI HQ and released
Indictment says Manafort and Gates controlled $75 million in slush funds, buying tailored suits, cars, rugs and antiques
Trump campaign aide Rick Gates, shown at left during the Republican National Convention, is also being told to turn himself in
THERE IS NO WAY TO REMOTELY TIE THIS TO THE TRUMP CAMPAIGN BUT THAT HAS NEVER MATTERED TO THESE JACKALS
Trump Reacts To Mueller Indictments: ‘There Is No Collusion’
A campaign foreign policy adviser, George Papadopolous, pleaded guilty on Oct. 5 for lying to federal officials about his connection to a professor that officials say is tied to the Kremlin and a woman that Papadopolous believed had ties to the Russian government.
“Sorry, but this is years ago, before Paul Manafort was part of the Trump campaign,” Trump tweeted. “But why aren’t Crooked Hillary & the Dems the focus?????”
He added, “….Also, there is NO COLLUSION!”
SORRY, MR. PRESIDENT… THAT DOESN’T MATTER A WHIT
SO WHEN ARE INDICTMENTS COMING FOR THE DEMOCRATS WHO FINANCED THE FAKE RUSSIAN DOSSIER THEY USED TO TRY TO DIG UP DIRT ON ANYBODY CONNECTED TO THE TRUMP CAMPAIGN??
SADLY, NEVER. JEFF SESSIONS DOESN’T HAVE THE STOMACH FOR IT. THESE SENATORS WERE HIS COLLEAGUES. HE WON’T DO IT. TIME TO FIRE HIM.
AG Jeff Sessions Says He Will Not Prosecute Clintons or Deep State Crooks – Sessions Is Compromised and Must Go
Chaffetz: Yeah, the State Department has been holding tens of thousands of documents on a case that they claim is closed. And when I met with Attorney General Sessions much like Ron DeSantis did, I basically got a stiff arm. I got an Attorney General that said he would not comply, he wasn’t going to do any sort of prosecutions and it’s such a huge difference. When he was a Senator he would have never put up with that.
Judge Janine: Wait a minute I don’t have that much time. You spoke with Sessions on IRS, Fast and Furious. Did he give you a reason? Did he say he was presenting anything to a grand jury? Yes or no?
Chaffetz: No, he basically let me know he wasn’t going to pursue anything on the major cases.
Judge Janine: So IRS, on the major cases? Are we talking about Hillary Clinton, because I haven’t even gotten to her yet.
Chaffetz: Yes, the email scandal of Hillary Clinton. We had Bryan Pagliano. I issued a subpoena for him to appear before the Committee and he said “No”. He didn’t even show up. We issued another subpoena. The US Marshals served it. And you know in my world, if you’re in court, I guarantee you that a subpoena is not an optional activity. We wanted the Attorney General to prosecute him and he said “No”.
GOP Would Rather Lose than Fight
Yet the GOP is not pushing back, instead its members acquiescing or cowering in fear of being called mean names by the prominent newspapers and television networks. Acting like wimps. Not willing to fight, to teach, to explain — the only way to win this war.
The pushback is instead coming from one man, his assembled team, and 65 million citizen supporters. It’s such a shame that so much of this man’s political party has not joined him in the fight, content to sit on the sidelines at best, or at worst actively working to thwart his efforts.
President Donald Trump Tweets Clinton/Russia Ties Should Be Investigated
THEN YOU BETTER GET A NEW AG…THIS ONE DOESN’T HAVE THE WILL
Never seen such Republican ANGER & UNITY as I have concerning the lack of investigation on Clinton made Fake Dossier (now $12,000,000?),….
…the Uranium to Russia deal, the 33,000 plus deleted Emails, the Comey fix and so much more. Instead they look at phony Trump/Russia ….
… ‘collusion,’ which doesn’t exist. The Dems are using this terrible (and bad for our country) Witch Hunt for evil politics, but the R’s …
… are now fighting back like never before. There is so much GUILT by Democrats/Clinton, and now the facts are pouring out. DO SOMETHING
Ontario passed a bill to prohibit pro-lifers from reaching out to women outside abortion facilities. Pro-life advocates who violate the law could face fines of up to $10,000 and six months in jail.
Trying to keep up with Bluebird can be exhausting.
Every time I open file and see how many images I have cached it reminds me of the desperate need I have for some semblance of a life.
