Tempest in a Teacup

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”

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?

    What Does Maxine Waters Actually Do In Congress?

    Today in Michigan, Waters led a raucous chorus at a women’s rally, chanting “Impeach 45! Impeach 45!” But, people would be wise to remember that her career is one of corruption and failure.

    Rep. Waters has passed just three bills in her 27 years in Congress. That means on average, Waters produces something noteworthy for constituents every 9 years. One of the bills was renaming a Post Office. Impressive stuff.
    Furthermore, the group Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington has given Rep. Waters the most corrupt member of congress four separate times.

    Obama smoking pot again, claims bombshell new book
    Author Ed Klein: Ex-prez too busy getting high, playing video games to lead Trump resistance

    HE’S A LAZY POT-SMOKING PRICK… ALWAYS HAS BEEN
    Despite a couple of appearances on behalf of Democratic candidates, Barack Obama has adamantly refused to heed the pleas of his party to lead the “resistance” against Donald Trump and instead spends much of his time at his home just blocks from the White House playing video games, chatting on the phone with celebrity pals, smoking marijuana and popping cannabis-infused gummy bears.

    Marion Barry to get his own statue in Washington, DC
    What a glorious reflection of heroism on our fair capital city. Coming at the time when statues and plaques of Robert E. Lee are being taken down, erecting a new statue to the crack-smoking, whore-mongering, tax-cheating mayor certainly is the embodiment of “progressives” and their values. Presumably, the plaque will memorialize Barry’s most famous quotable line: “B—- set me up!”

    Donald and Melania Trump meet mini FLOTUS trick-or-treater at the White House


    The girl donned a black cap with “FLOTUS” emblazoned on it like the one the real first lady wore to visit hurricane-stricken Texas in August.

    She also wore a white shirt, black pants, and sneakers, like the ones the first lady changed into after catching snark for wearing stilettos as she and the president first departed for Houston.

    Melania Trump grinned and looked amused when she saw the costume.

    It’s Failing: New HHS Report Continues Drumbeat of Dreadful Obamacare News

    Nearly one-third of all Obamacare consumers will be faced with one provider “choice” next year, with more than half having just one or two possible options. The total number of state-level plan issuers across the country has been slashed by more than 100 since 2015. And average rates — which more than doubled on the federal exchange between 2013 and 2017 — keep heading up.
