From prior thread:

[quote]Here is my question: When you get a presidential pardon, you are admitting guilt. So if Trump pardons everyone of all crimes, does that mean they can't be charged with the same crimes at the state level, since they've already been found guilty?

I think you're thinking of double jeopardy but that doesn't apply to federal and state crimes. In other words, you can be charged for crimes based on the same facts in both state and federal court. A more interesting question is whether accepting a federal pardon can be used as evidence of guilt in a state criminal prosecution

With all of Trump's simple, unimaginative nicknames for his enemies, like "Crooked" Hillary and "Little" Marco and "Rocket Man", why doesn't somebody adopt "Treasonous" Trump? You know it would make Trump nuts and bring him all that much closer to total self-destruction.

The current makeup of the House is so far to the right that Trump could indeed murder someone on Fifth Avenue in broad daylight and they would not bring impeachment charges against him. Sorry bitches, but it ain't gonna happen.

Pelosi is correct: Democrats should concentrate on 2018, and God knows they need it as they seem to be in complete disarray. If they some how manage to pull off some victories, perhaps the impeachment process could be entertained then.

From The Guardian, linked at r37:

[quote]Two Russian state institutions with close ties to Vladimir Putin funded substantial investments in Twitter and Facebook through a business associate of Jared Kushner, leaked documents reveal. The investments were made through a Russian technology magnate, Yuri Milner, who also holds a stake in a company co-owned by Kushner, Donald Trump’s son-in-law and senior White House adviser. The discovery is likely to stir concerns over Russian influence in US politics and the role played by social media in last year’s presidential election. It may also raise new questions for the social media companies and for Kushner.

From John Schindler, former NSA guy: Spies Suspect Kremlin Is Pushing Dozens of Fake Trump Sex Tapes

As many as a dozen intelligence services worldwide, on four continents, are in possession of some sort of “Trump tape” featuring sexual escapades of a controversial nature; in some cases, the women involved appear to be underage. Some of these tapes have been shared with the Mueller investigation.

One Western intelligence agency with a solid professional reputation is in possession of an unpleasant Trump tape that they assess “with high confidence” is bona fide, i.e. exactly what it appears to be. They obtained the tape from a trusted source who plausibly had access to it. Over the decades, Trump has traveled widely—including to Russia more than once—and thereby exposed himself to surreptitious filming in numerous countries.

However, here’s the rub: Many of the “Trump tapes” floating around in spy circles worldwide cannot be verified, while some of them are obvious fakes. The Western spy agency that’s holding a Trump tape they’re pretty sure is real has also been approached two other times with tapes that were less solid—and one of them was transparently fake.

It’s obvious to savvy Western counterspies that someone is spreading fake Trump tapes—not all of them high quality—to muddy the waters. The obvious suspect, of course, is the Kremlin. Since the Russians know all about President Trump’s decades of personal antics, including what kompromat exists on him, they appear to be pushing dubious and unverifiable tapes, some of them obviously fake, to create chaos and confusion.

And the former MI6 agent is not the only source for the claim about Russian kompromat on the president-elect. Back in August, a retired spy told me he had been informed of its existence by "the head of an East European intelligence agency".

Later, I used an intermediary to pass some questions to active duty CIA officers dealing with the case file - they would not speak to me directly. I got a message back that there was "more than one tape", "audio and video", on "more than one date", in "more than one place" - in the Ritz-Carlton in Moscow and also in St Petersburg - and that the material was "of a sexual nature".

I'm sure that Trump believes that everyone will fall for this nonsense about him asking Putin if he interfered in the 2016 election.

Trumpie: "Hey, I'm really curious, did you meddle in 2016 to help me?"

Putin: "Nyet."

Trumpie: "Well, OK then. That's it. Thanks."

This is all so patently stupid on so many levels, yet this moron thinks that this little scenario is even remotely credible. It ranks right up there with Trump masquerading as publicist "John Miller" to brag about himself. I'm certain that he concocted this plan in his own twisted mind and never discussed it with anyone else. I seriously doubt that it even occurred, and it is unlikely that there is an official transcript of the conversation. The man lies about EVERYTHING. Why would anyone think that he is being truthful about this?

by Anonymousreply 20111/12/2017

In a strange way I hope Trump doesn't get impeached. He is so outrageous and disgusting that he has inspired a much higher level of activism from Dems and allied independents.. The Media has placed so much emphasis on Trump that we have not properly focused enough on the vile people like Mike Pence and McConnell, Grassley and the rogues gallery of people in the U.S. Senate.

As for the House Paul Ryan Trey Gowdy, Devin Nunes, Darryl Issa, etc. are the tip of the iceberg. If Trump leaves office, the media will make the same mistake they made earlier. They misled us by touting what a great guy Kelly, the Chief of Staff is, only to get the rude shock of discovering he is just as bad as Trump.

Pence is such a fucking phony, he may lull the media or the public or at least too many of the "independent voters" that he is a safer bet than Trump and that could not be further from the truth. They are all evil. Unless Mueller plans on indicting the entire GOP as a criminal enterprise under RICO, and throws in obstruction charges for Ryan, Nunes, Gowdy, Grassley, Priebus and a few others, we may as well have the poster boy for evil in the Oval and keep pissing on all his and the GOP's legislative goals. Let's make sure the Tax Plan & Trump's budget proposals fail.

The enrollment is higher than ever for Obamacare, the courts are stopping Trump from imposing a lot of his "bans" and Cities, states and corporate entities all over the United States are ignoring his pull out of the Paris Accords and doing their own thing. If we can impose enough pressure on corporate America to insist they police themselves, we might be able to survive.

It will be tense and harrowing and we will have to stay vigilant and active...just like the Republicans...but we can do it. Look at how De Vos is trying to resign because of all the headaches we're causing. We need to be as obstructionist and determined as they have always been. We have coasted for a long time. We had eight years of Obama and now we need to step up.

LOL! R202 here. No I'm not a troll. And honestly I bounce back and forth, too. I know we need to get rid of Trump. he is a criminal and a threat to our national security, probably committed treason. But I'm also scared of what comes after Trump.

Because if Pence becomes President, just based on human nature and what we already know about the sheeple, and the Media, it would be SO easy for many Americans and for the media to back off and "give Pence a chance." And that would be terrible.

The thing is the corruption and the depravity in our government in at least both the Executive, and both houses of the Legislative branches goes so deep, and it's so pervasive, that too many people could breathe a sigh of relief if Trump gets ousted, and then we end up with Pence and most of the rest of the vermin still in place to do great harm.

My thing is I can't believe the Russians would just buy Trump off. There are a lot of people in Congress who deserve a closer look & I hope Mueller and his people have the time they need to get all of them. In fact I'd rather he save Trump for last. Trump, Bannon Donnie Jr. and JAred all go down together. That way Trump can't issue any pardons! I feel so bi-polar, so indecisive. I want Mueller to get Trump and his gang, but I also am afraid of what comes after. There. Does that make more sense or is it clearer?

I guess what I'm also saying is that getting Trump and his cabal isn't enough. If they get Manafort, Flynn, Bannon, Donnie jr., Jared and Trump, it won't be enough.

Sessions isn't going anywhere. That's why he "launched a letter asking for an another investigation of Hillary. I know. You can't hire a Special Prosecutor ro investigate a private citizen. But Sessions is going to publicly show his value and loyalty to Trump as he has in the past in an attempt to insulate himself. and honestly, last time, all his Senate colleagues rushed to defend him. It will be interesting to see if they do it again if Trump reaches for him. Firing Sessions will not help Trump. I wonder if this is another great idea from Bannon or Jared?

[quote][R270] Interesting post. I don't understand how Sessions can get a Special Counsel to investigate Hillary who is now a private citizen. How is this possible?

Technically it's not. A special prosecutor is only supposed to be appointed in cases of a conflict of interest with the usual prosecuting authority. There's no NEED for a special prosecutor when the person being investigated is not in the executive branch (ie, the person who is supposed to be carrying on the investigation, or someone having autrhority over them).

That said, I don't know exactly how the rules work, and if there are specific prohibitions against appointing a special prosecutor.

What's clear here is Trump doesn't even know the point or purpose of a special prosecutor. He doesn't seem to realize the reason one was appointed is that his attorneys general could not impartially investigate their president.

by Anonymousreply 27611/14/2017

That might be factually true, r276, but the threshold question is, can they even appoint a special counsel to investigate Hillary at all? She's not in government and there's no need for a special prosecutor.

They want to appoint one, it seems, because it sounds all ominous and serious. "Special counsel." What they don't seem to realize is you only do that to investigate the investigators (or their bosses).

As Hillary is a private citizen, she can be investigated normally. But of course they don't want that because it doesn't sound as dire as a special counsel appointment.

They are a bunch of jokers, and the biggest goofus of them all is Trump.

Worked with Jeff Sessions when he was a senator. He's very conservative, has southern attitudes, and was not the brightest bulb in the Senate chandelier (although next to John Cornyn everyone else is a klieg light).

Early on, Session's ambition (and those southern attitudes) aligned him with this crowd. But, underneath his flaws, he is trying, as best he knows how, to be an honorable (conservative) man.

He is unhappy. He knows that what Shep says is true. So Sessions is trying to appease Trump while preserving some sense of our legal system's integrity. (Probably impossible.) He also knows that if he abandons his AG post, all hell will break loose.

It doesn't "keep rising." In fact, in the aggregate poll count, it's down from its recent peak of 41.7% on September 23rd. There is a lot of noise in the system, there always is, but the general trend has been fairly consistently downward.

I wouldn't expect it to go too much lower from where it is today, absent some earth-shaking scandal, e.g., more indictments from Mueller. The deplorables are absolutely still with Trump and other than peeling off 10% or so earlier this year, the rest of them are solidifying their support behind him.

Because Comey dropping that bomb caused the election to tighten up, and close elections are easier to steal. No way they didn't steal this election. Michigan and Wisconsin for sure. PA & Ohio too. But honestly I grow weary of Biden relitigating the election and sniping at Hillary. The fact is, he had a whole lot of influence and if he was concerned about Wisconsin and PA and Ohio why didn't he take his ass to those states and camp out. I saw Obama working his ass off, Michelle too, right up until the last damned minute. Biden and yes, Bernie should have been out there 24/7 to stop that fucker.

Anyone who tries to pull that shit is demonstrating that they haven't done their homework and they don't understand the dossier. It was never sold as being 100% accurate and to do so would have been foolish. Steele was gathering information from all over, from a variety of sources. Some data he was able to verify to a high degree of certainty, others he was much less certain about. That's just the way things like this work.

IDK but the election in Virginia showed people are pretty pissed. And Dems have been winning all sorts of special elections in places like Oklahoma.

In this past election in blood red Ohio, several former repug candidates changed their party to independent or libertardian so as not to be associated with repugs (which I found rather shocking).

And a democrat in fucking deplorable central Alabama is in a tight race with another Gross Old Pervert which never would have been close in any other year.

There have been protests over this tax scam bill and various cabinet members. Devoid devos has been sniveling her bones ass off and threatening to resign because people are roasting her alive daily. Ross is being investigated for his shady dealings.

Iran embarrassment of riches for protesters and sometimes you just have to pick your battles so you don't get burnt out.

Just because millions aren't in the streets doesn't mean nothing is going on behind the scenes.

A couple of people jumped on the poster who predicted busses & US Marshals rounding-up EVERY POLITICIAN & IC asset who has conspired with Vladimir Putin against The United States.

I believe this could happen.

I’m beginning to believe it’s our only hope.

I also believe Robert Mueller understands this, and that he has found that a cancer has grown in our government.

I, also was fascinated by The Guardian article (was it R341?) linked above.

If you’re into this thread I assure you, you will be impressed by it.

What I wasn’t aware of before I read it was Steele’s frustration with The CIA & FBI to act or do ANYTHING about his meticulous intel, yet had no problem sharing with the American public the red herring bullshit about “Hillary’s emails!”

This is what makes me think the poster I referenced above might be more right than he knows!

If Putin has imbedded assets into every aspect of our democracy, and I believe he has, what other way would there be than to round them all up at the same time and charge them with treason and attempting to overthrow The Government Of The United States?!?!

Also, am I the only person who wonders where the fuck is Rudy Giuliani?!?!

His connection to the New York branch of The FBI was/is another stinking fishy piece of this skullduggery. How the fuck has he or his name not surfaced ONCE in the last year?!

Giuliani is busy with Erdoğan.

"Erdoğan appears intensely interested in the Zarrab case, repeatedly asking US officials to drop the charges against him. An FBI source told me that the allegations against Zarrab include selling a ton of gold each week and taking a 15 percent commission. A superseding indictment filed by prosecutors in September charges that Zarrab conspired with senior Turkish government officials, including Erdoğan’s then-minister of the economy, in a scheme to dodge US sanctions on Iran that involved “laundering funds in connection with those illegal transactions, including millions of dollars in bribe payments.”

Zarrab hired Michael Mukasey, an attorney general in the George W. Bush administration, and Rudy Giuliani, a former Republican mayor of New York City and a notorious hard-liner on Iran, in March. According to Zarrab’s attorney, Benjamin Brafman, Giuliani and Mukasey were not hired to participate in Zarrab’s legal defense team; they were paid instead “to explore a potential disposition of the criminal charges”—in other words, to get the case closed down by influencing senior US government officials. That means, in effect, going over the head of prosecutors and bypassing the normal plea bargain channels—thereby undermining the administration of justice. [bold]Greenberg Traurig, Giuliani’s firm, is a registered agent for the Turkish government. Both Giuliani and Mukasey, who acted as advisers to the Trump campaign, appear to be cashing in on their connections to the White House. [/bold] "

by Anonymousreply 44411/24/2017

[quote] What is that information sharing agreement between the Flynn and Trump lawyers? Is that shit allowed ?

As possible targets of the grand jury -- and hence potential co-defendants -- there is nothing that would generally prohibit that type of an information-sharing arrangement. Lawyers for criminal co-defendants often work cooperatively with each other so long as what they undertake doesn't violate the best interests of their individual clients. At the start of an investigation, it is them against the prosecutor.

But, the dynamics have obviously shifted -- and not in Trump's favor. This development is a clear signal that Flynn is cooperating. As John Harwood noted this morning on the Today Show, there isn't much information that Flynn could give Mueller that would induce Mueller to offer a plea -- except for information implicating Trump. And I'll add possibly Pence to that.

That claim is a fiction that he dreamed up. It only exists in his fevered mind and that of his idiot supporters. Yes, Kellyanne Conway has trotted this lie out every so often (and maybe not even recently), but that means nothing.

I don't know what falsehoods they've been feeding Cheetolini to keep him from firing Mueller, but this development is going to be a difficult one to argue around.

My hunch is that Mueller is starting to get close to another round of indictments. And that could put us a step closer to a constitutional crisis if it looks like Trump is going to try and get rid of Mueller.

Interesting development—upthread (or maybe it was the previous one), there was a discussion of Manafort’s lawyer and how he announced that Manafort being indicted was a clear indication that Trump didn’t collude with Russia. I still can’t believe his lawyer would say something like that—I know it was a signal to Trump that Manafort would keep quiet and is expecting a pardon. Has anyone heard any more if Manafort is cooperating? I think his lawyer might be in Trump’s back pocket.

[quote] One of my biggest concerns is that Trumps lawyers are not up to the job and are out of their league. That will result in an overturned conviction or multiple appeals.

A few thoughts on that. First, by the time it ever gets to the point of an appeal, Trump either will have resigned or been impeached and removed from office. Second, it is extraordinarily difficult for a defendant to get his or her conviction overturned because your lawyer screwed up. Difficult but not impossible; it happens. Third, while I agree that Trump's current lawyers may be unsuited for the role of defense counsel in a high-profile federal corruption prosecution with strong elements of conspiracy and money-laundering, they may not end up being his trial lawyers -- if in fact it ever gets to a trial. And, a lawyer's ineffectiveness is judged primarily (though not entirely) by how they perform as trial (or plea) counsel. Assuming it would be different trial counsel (who are more up to the task) than Ty Cobb and the lawyers he has assembled, it would be an extraordinarily rare situation for defense counsel's errors during the [bold]prosecutor's investigation phase[/bold] to result in a conviction being overturned.

I suspect more and more that the Trumpkins did think they would lose, and that was actually part of Putin's grand plan. He knew his man would win because he was planning on hacking into critical districts to shave votes/kick people off the rolls, and fronted Stein which together would siphon off just enough points to score the electoral college win.

I don't think he cared that Trump would be in office, though lifting of sanctions would be a bonus. Putin wanted Obama and Hillary to know that he could determine who would win, hence it all being so sloppy. It's no fun winning if no one knows how you did it. He actually reminds me of a serial killer who leaves notes for the police. And poor "Chump" he though he was using Vlady, but Vlady was using him all along.

Yes, I completely understand that. My point is that the primary objective is to get this man out of office by any legal means necessary. He'll be out of office long before he gets convicted. Plus, sloppy counsel rarely means you don't go to prison or get to delay the outcome for years.

Also, he would have to live with the knowledge that he will have been the only President of the United States convicted of a federal crime and tossed from office. So, in that respect he would have beaten Nixon.

This plan was servant years in the making. Whatever dirt Putin has on DT is immense. Blackmail or fear of blackmail is not an irrational conclusion about this mess.

Special counsel for the US Department of Justice Robert Mueller is investigating an attempt by President Donald Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner to block the passage of UN Security Council Resolution 2334 condemning Israeli settlement activity, according to The Wall Street Journal.

The probe is part of a larger investigation by Mueller into Kushner and his conversations with foreign leaders, including Israelis, during the two-month transition period between the November election and the time Trump took office. Under the Obama administration, the United States abstained and the only one of 14 countries on the UNSC not to approve the December 2016 measure. But the decision not to use its veto power to block the move, something it also did in 2011, was widely seen as a form of tacit approval of the resolution by the Obama administration.

by Anonymousreply 49111/26/2017

I know how Trump and Kushner could bring peace to the Middle East. They like real estate and building giant, phallic buildings, right? The Israelis need to give back all the land they've taken for "settlements" over the decades and, in return, Trump and Kushner will oversee the building of gigantic high rises for the Israelis to live in instead of having to take over yet more land. I bet we could have Trump tweeting about this hugely awesome idea within hours! I await my Nobel Peace Prize.

IIRC, because there are a limited number of over-the-air frequencies on which to broadcast, the government required that any channel that gave airtime to one side of a debate, had to give equal time to the opposing side. This effectively meant that stations wouldn't give time to any contentious matter.

I think the rationale for dumping the policy was justified by the increased accessibility of cable TV and the proliferation of channels.

I’m not sure if it would have prevented a Fox Channel, but it might have.

I worked in radio in the days of the Fairness Doctrine. It applied to over-the-air radio and TV only, so Fox 'News' and cable would be exempt under the old rules if they still existed.

In those days, radio and TV stations that did editorials on topical issues of the day were obligated to make equal time available for opposing viewpoints as demanded by members of the audience or activist groups. It was often great fun at the station to work with these folks...some of whom became regulars. It was clearly a service to do this: the public benefited from hearing the diverse voices on their local stations and it kept management honest.

Long-form hate talk radio shows like Rush and Savage only became possible with repeal of the Fairness Doctrine. As a practical matter, it would be impossible for stations to offer hours of equal time a day.

The FCC canned the Fairness Doctrine, along with their number of stations owned restrictions, with new initiatives that increased the number of station frequencies available, like FM Docket 80-90 and Low Power TV. It was argued that all the new stations would provide sufficient diversity of viewpoints

Now, a handful of conservative owners control most everything, and Americans self-select programs that reinforce their own existing biases.

Trump has basically been breaking the law for decades and keeping people quiet by threatening law suits - you can't do that with a Special Investigation.

Flynn Said Russian Sanctions Would be ‘Ripped Up,’ Whistle-Blower Says

WASHINGTON — Michael T. Flynn, President Trump’s former national security adviser, told a former business associate that economic sanctions against Russia would be “ripped up” as one of the Trump administration’s first acts, according to an account by a whistle-blower made public on Wednesday.

Mr. Flynn believed that ending the sanctions could allow a business project he had once participated in to move forward, according to the whistle-blower. The account is the strongest evidence to date that the Trump administration wanted to end the sanctions immediately, and suggests that Mr. Flynn had a possible economic incentive for the United States to forge a closer relationship with Russia.

I'm still a little curious about what the members of the Trump administration got, or expected to get, for their giveaways to Russia? It's easy to see what the advantage is on the Russian side: a de facto recognition of their right to interfere in Ukraine and keep Crimea, a lifting of sanctions, a compliant administration willing to do just about anything they wanted, etc., but what did Flynn, Kushner, Manafort, Trump, etc. get? Was it just money?

Money is the root of all evil, R599.

Seriously, what else would it be for except million and billions of dollars in their own pockets.
