Looks like Boris got hired by the Washington Post. Read it and weep:
The quest for collusion is over. Special counsel Robert S. Mueller III’s Russia investigation has not — either through leaks or announced indictments — revealed any collusion, and Democrats and their allies in the liberal mainstream media know that it never will. This reality is setting in among the president’s clearer-thinking foes, and they are transitioning to an obstruction of justice claim in an effort to sustain the fight with President Trump.
Mueller’s investigation has been looking into Russian meddling in the 2016 election since May. His team has made a number of consequential findings, but none of them establish collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia. We would know by now if anyone close to Trump had actually colluded with Russia to impact the 2016 campaign. The only thing we know for certain is that Paul Manafort, Rick Gates, George Papadopoulos and Michael Flynn have been indicted for or admitted to things that fall short of collusion and have nothing to do with the president.

Oh Jesus Christ, Trump’s decades long history of corrupt practices tells us all we need to know about who’s trustworthy. He’s stolen services, robbed banks, depended on hundreds of millions of dollars worth of loans from Russia for shady, shady deals. He’s cheated people repeatedly. He’s lied with glee. The man has no moral center and he’s a narcissist.
What administration has had this many people so high up in the campaign ARRESTED this early? Why are they ALL LYING to investigators? They’re corrupt as fuck. Their defenders can keep moving the goalposts back. They’re still fucking guilty.

So Mueller is invested in a fund that itself invests in another fund, the latter of which is managed by someone who used to work for a Soros fund 17 years ago. And this is proof of ... what?

I have some questions for you legal brainiacs. It's a given that Trump has committed multiple felonies in his capacity as a private businessman, but is there a statute of limitations on these infractions? If not, my understanding is that he cannot be indicted on these crimes as a sitting president. Only after he leaves office or is impeached for something else that Mueller may find. So, by my thinking, Mueller needs to find some connection between these felonies committed by him as a private citizen and his bid for presidency and the possibility that he is a Russian agent BECAUSE of his actions as a private businessman. The felonies alone won't cut it, right? Does this seem as nebulous a connection to prove as I fear it seems?

It's not a given. It's widely suspected that there have been some shady dealings, including money laundering, but this has not been proved.
[quote]but is there a statute of limitations on these infractions?
Yes, but the money-laundering, in particular, if it really did occur, is likely within that limit.

Nobody knows if this is true or not. Legal scholars are divided and this has never been adjudicated.

This reminds me of an incident that took place during the post-election protests. Someone (with way too much time on their hands) found a television interview of a protester in Oregon with an unusual name. They looked him up on LinkedIn and found that he was a member of a union. The union in question had previously been managed by another individual. That union leader, years earlier, had been on the board of directors of a charitable organization to which a Soros-managed fund had contributed.
This was proof positive that Soros was behind all of the protests. Seriously.

Trump's dealings and financial records are all cooked up and covered up. I'm sure Mueller will find the proof, eventually, but Trump isn't just protecting his family.

When the denouement comes, and make no mistake, it will come, I expect to hear that the crimes committed were "Before he was President", and that "Look at any real estate person in NYC and you will find crime!" (Why aren't those fuckers in jail too?), or "Trump is a busy business man and makes a ton of money so it doesn't matter".
I am just trying to figure out the spin when he is boiling in his hot water with family. Of course they are feeling it out with "He cannot obstruct justice!" And also that "They are looking at $, so No Collusion!" I will enjoy the hell out of this, but I do not expect the end will be cut and dry. I won't be satisfied unless there are perp walks. Watching them arrive for testimony is not enough.

On Fox News Tuesday night, Laura Ingraham reported that yet another one of Robert Mueller's deputies in his Russia investigation is compromised due to her track record as a blatant partisan.
Jeannie Rhee, who was hired by Mueller last summer to work on the probe, was the personal attorney of Ben Rhodes and also represented the Clinton Foundation, Ingraham revealed. "This information will put further pressure on Special Prosecutor Bob Mueller to resign."
Rhee is the third member of the Mueller team this week who has been shown to be brazenly partisan. Two other members of the team have been revealed as highly questionable hires in recent days as well — Peter Strzok, an anti-Trumper who helped exonerate Hillary Clinton, and Andrew Weissmann, an unscrupulous prosecutor who told outgoing acting Attorney General Sally Yates in an email that he was "proud" of her for defying President Trump's travel ban.

So, is what you are saying R44, that a potential laundry list of business felonies that Mueller or Schneiderman find that he committed as a private citizen could be enough to doom him now? Even without finding that connection of Russian conspiracy? I suppose it all rests in the hands of Congress about what they deem is an impeachable offense.

What I'm saying, R53, is that, honestly, nobody knows. We're in uncharted territory here and nobody knows just what the limitations are on indicting a sitting President of the United States. Some claim that he cannot be indicted while he remains President. Others insist that he can, and they cite the Supreme Court decision that allowed Bill Clinton to be sued in a civil case as precedent.
Mueller's investigation is not limited to Russian conspiracies, as we've already seen with the Manafort indictment. He will go where the investigation takes him, just as prior investigators have (Starr, in the Clinton case, began with an investigation of Whitewater).
If it turns out that a sitting President cannot be indicted, which will have to be settled by the Supreme Court, then yes, it will be up to Congress. And Congress gets to define what "high crimes and misdemeanors" means, regardless of what Mueller finds.

And Trump insisting that Meuller "better not" look at his business dealings and finances? Really?
And meeting with the Wiki Leaks people, and talking to Assange and thinking no one would every find out? Really?
And having you National Security Designee, and EXPERIENCED Intelligence officer plot to kidnap a Turkish citizen, to not fill out his foreign agent forms properly and not realize his bank accounts would reflect payments he never declared? Really?

The Russians including Putin are just fellow rich and powerful people to Trump. They do know it won't look good in the press, hence all the half-hearted cover up and lies. But they don't see collusion as fundamentally wrong and won't ever feel any guilt about it.

But once they stepped into the realm of Politics, their arrogance was coupled with amateurism. They totally underestimated the fact that they were being watched and held accountable. Trump, who always enjoyed manipulating the Press was outraged and continues to be, at the negative press and the revelations and blow back he is getting. the political world is new to them and they are fucking up every step of the way. They thought they could swan in there and simply do things the way they have been doing them within the Trump organization, and they look like drowning rats.

Of course we're never quite sure whether someone is a paid troll or not. When it comes right down to it, what's the difference between:
a) a paid Eastern European or Russian troll posting genuinely stupid shit because he's been paid.
b) a random sociopathic troll posting genuinely stupid shit because he likes getting a rise out of people.
c) a rabid partisan, aka "deplorable," posting genuinely stupid shit because he's overdosed on Breitbart and Fox News.
d) a really stupid individual posting genuinely stupid shit because he's just that clueless.
In each case, the impact here is the same: it's someone posting genuinely stupid shit. Does it really matter whether we call r57 "Boris" or "fuckhead?"

Trump is going to get impeached...ha ha...do you really think the Republicans in the house and senate are going to impeach a president of their own party. Trump is still very popular with the Republican base...they would vote out of office any member of their party voting for his impeachment. Privately, they may hate him, but impeachment would be political suicide. Moreover, it would take a two-thirds majority of the Senate to remove Trump from office; even assuming that the Republican controlled house would even pass articles of impeachment. The Democrats should be spending their money and efforts on the 2018 mid-terms and setting up a strong slate for 2020. Hillary was a disaster, if she runs again, she will lose a third time.
I guess she could become the modern day Harold Stassen who ran for president 12 times, although she might be a little old to beat Harold's record. Using an old Nixon joke...Hillary is tanned, rested, and ready for 2020 and beyond.

Donald Trump Jr. told House investigators that did not communicate directly with his father when confronted with news reports about his June 2016 Trump Tower meeting, according to multiple sources with knowledge of his testimony.
Instead, Trump Jr. said he was speaking to White House aide Hope Hicks about how to respond to the reports. He said President Donald Trump, according to the sources, was debating between a longer and a shorter statement while President Trump and Hicks were aboard Air Force One.
Hicks was aboard Air Force One and was speaking with Trump while the statement was being crafted.
Separately, sources said, Trump Jr. said he could not recall some key details about the White House response. Trump Jr.'s highly anticipated testimony on Tuesday comes as he has faced growing questions on Capitol Hill about the June 2016 meeting at Trump Tower where he met with Russian operatives after being promised dirt on Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.
Both the House and Senate Intelligence Committees have interviewed several of the participants in the meeting, including when the House panel last week questioned the Russian translator, Anatoli Samochornov, who also attended the Trump Tower session, sources said.
Trump Jr. firmly denied that he had communicated with his father about the June 2016 Trump Tower meeting, according to the sources.
The Trump Tower meeting between Trump Jr., Trump's son-in-law Jared Kushner and former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort with a Russian lawyer who Trump Jr. believed had dirt on Clinton has been of intense interest to the congressional Russia investigators as well as special counsel Robert Mueller.
While aboard Air Force One, Trump took part in crafting his son's initial response to the reports of the meeting, which was sent out through the Trump Organization under Trump Jr.'s name.

In fact, he will either use the committee to support Trump or he will shut it down. Don't look for anything but squabbling from the House Intel Committee. Adam Schiff and Nunes will bicker back and forth and nothing will ever come out of any substance. Mueller's team does not leak. So the investigative committees of Congress were the best way to find stuff out. With Nunes running the show more openly now ( because he was always in the background, even when he "recused himself") it will be a big shit show.

Trump will never release his true medical records willingly. The only way he’s going to a real doctor is if he has a heart attack live on the air and collapses in front of everyone. Trump knows what his true health situation is, and he knows it should have been disclosed before he was ever elected.
What happens when it comes out Trump had congestive heart failure years before the election? Or dementia? People will say he should have disclosed it because the RNC could have nominated somebody else. There will be calls for him to step down. Pence will push for him to be removed so he can step in.
The irony is, Trump is so busy hiding his medical situation he’s probably not being treated for it. So maybe one day he’ll just have a massive stroke and drop dead.

Attacking Mueller will backfire. Hannity can queef deplorable garbage from its mouth, and Republicans in investigative committees can beat the deadhorse of Hillary Emails a zillion times over for deflection, but too much of the mainstream media ain't letting this ratings drama get buried. Mueller doesn't give news conferences and political tweets. He works as if he is a no nonsense kind of guy. When he does present his report, the i's will be dotted and the t's crossed.
Hannity supposedly has regular phone conversations with DJT. Attacking the investigation through a media talking head, looks like part of the obstruction.
Also, many Congressmen took Russian sourced campaign contributions via pacs or perhaps more directly. Why dosen't Congress do to those members what they did to sexual harassment perps? Well, too many and too powerful. Putin didn't just play Trump, but Trump looks like his crown jewel.

R215 - I’m into elder gay territory myself - 55! - and at this stage - I’ve never been drunk in my entire life.
Yes, I have had a glass of wine or a cocktail with friends to be social. But am Ambivallent about it and more often than not I’ll just not bother. If I was told I never could touch a drop of alcohol again by my doctor - no problem! Friends love it - cos I’m always ok to be designated driver.
But if I was told no cake - no chocolate - no ice cream...etc. I’d just want to give up. Life wouldn’t be worth living.
So I can totally get that trump doesn’t drink. And probably - from the lists of junk he is said to eat - he probably finds it too strong and unpleasant. I have a friend like that - she has baby-tastes - loves bland food and won’t touch alcohol - and it seems the cheeto does likewise.
Just as it’d leak if he was drinking - I can’t credit the reports of cocaine use at all. Too many people would know what was going on. And with all the high tech security going on around him - any residue would get picked up. And people would talk.
But prescription meds - another story entirely. Easily obtainable and legit and not illegal. And in his head it wouldn’t even equate with drug use as a doctor gave permission and prescribed it. He’s no common junkie - no siree!

You are correct, R248, but if he fires Mueller, he will have crossed a line, and we cannot let him get away with that. It just seems so very clear to those of us who are living in the real world -- where facts matter -- that Trump is guilty of obstruction of justice to cover up his part in a conspiracy against the United States by consorting with a foreign government to influence the 2016 election. His attempt to shut that down should be met with a very swift reaction by the American public and Congress.
The problem we face is that people in Congress are also likely implicated in this and they have little incentive or motivation to make their crimes, and tRump's, public.
Nevertheless, the citizens should help provide incentive and motivation in the same way that we rallied against the repeal of the Affordable Care Act and in the way I hope that we will move enough people in Congress to vote against whatever tax scam they come up with in the reconciliation process.

CNN made an egregious reporting error Friday on the potential connection between Donald Trump Jr. and Wikileaks.
The story, which was touted by the network for many hours on broadcast and social media as a bombshell turned out to be factually incorrect and insignificant. CNN’s original report definitively stated that Don Jr. received access to secret Wikileaks information via email on Sept. 4, 2016. In fact, that email was sent on Sept. 14, after the said documents were released to the public.
CNN pushed the fake story for hours, even after the email in question was made publicly available to disprove the reporting. In a humiliating move, CNN decided to have one of the authors of the debunked story go on air to “correct” his reporting.
Manu Raju went on and said his reporting was “incorrect” and is “not as significant as what we know now based on this e-mail.” Neither CNN or the reporter apologized for the error.

Based on the recent reporting regarding Hope Hicks, I have a theory.......
It was recently disclosed that during the transition, the FBI met twice with Hicks regarding contacts from Russian Operatives. The FBI could have investigated Hicks, determined that although she was close to Trump, she was completely out of the loop regarding Russia and Trumps dealings. They questioned her to confirm their determination, and then informed her about what Trump and co were really up to, and successfully flipped her. Shes been wired this entire time. Remember, there has been numerous reports about administrative fears that someone within their own ranks was wearing a wire. Hicks strikes me as the type to cooperate on that level.

She doesn't strike me as that at all, R284. She strikes me as a social climber who will suck whatever dick is presented to her to get what she wants.

The attacks on Hillary, the campaign style rallies, the attacks by Fox on Mueller are all designed to build political support out here among voters to keep pressure on the GOP House not to act, and to cast this as political infighting rather than legal issues. The whole defense at this point is "but what about Hillary..." One of the networks had a special about Watergate this weekend and I watched it. The Nixon crowd did some pretty ugly things, too. But the difference is that the Republicans in Congress had integrity back then...or at least much more integrity than the ones you have today. Lindsey Graham is responding to pressure from his base. Nothing more sinister than that. He must be getting calls about Hillary so he is talking the talk. He's an asshole and has no integrity.

But I am wondering if it’s Jared and Ivanka’s intention to seek asylum in Israel. Maybe Trump too. How many countries would take them that aren’t absolute shitholes? Not many. Only Netanyahu would have the chutzpah to bite the hand that feeds him, to the extent that he would help shelter a U.S. President and his family’s flight from prosecution, even after all we've done for Israel. He just takes our support for granted.
Putin doesn’t care what the U.S. thinks of him so he’s got nothing to lose. We send billions to Israel.
It will be interesting to see, if the Trumps get to leave, where will they go? I’ve had the impression for the last month or so, half of what Trump does is to ensure he has a bolthole, or more than one, for the inevitable Judgment Day.

As the Trump administration nears its one-year mark, White House officials are touting cuts to regulations as one of their top achievements. But government records—and in some cases the agencies carrying out Trump’s policies—tell a very different story.
For one thing, only a handful of regulations have actually been taken off the books. That’s due to laws that keep government policies from wildly swinging back and forth every time moving trucks show up at the White House.
Rather, the claim of victory in the war on regulation is instead based almost entirely on stopping proposed rules that haven’t yet made their way through the machinery of government. The White House says it has killed or stalled 860 pending regulations. It’s done this by withdrawing 469, listing another 109 as inactive and relegating 282 to “long term.”
A Bloomberg News review has found even those claims are exaggerated.

Trump was elected because of four things: 1) Dead babies, 2) Guns and 3) Mexicans. 35% of the population (Trump base) will never vote for a democrat because of those three things. They believe so firmly in these issues that they will vote against their best interests (health care, welfare, Social Security, etc). Add another 10% of wealthy Americans who want (4) tax breaks and fewer government restrictions on business and you have a solid 45% voting block. This 45% dictated it's will on the majority because the electoral college is skewed toward the rural areas where evangelicals, hunters, and white folks most afraid of other races live. It took two Clinton votes in California to equal one Trump vote in Wyoming. Every republican that I know falls into a "extremist position" on one of those four categories.

What, R517? Those were private email conversations that should never have been released in the first place. I think this blog post nails it.
[quote]My enthusiasm for Rosenstein these days is altogether under control. And his behavior in this episode, in particular, has hardly done him credit. The release of private correspondence between two Justice Department employees whose correspondence is the subject of an active inspector general investigation is not just wrong. It is cruel. It is not the practice of the Justice Department to turn over to Congress—let alone to give to reporters—active investigative material related to the private communications of its own employees. Justice Department and FBI employees have the right to their political opinions. To the extent their private political expressions for some reason make it impossible for them to work on a certain matter, they certainly have the right to have that determined without having their careers ruined and their names dragged publicly through the mud by politicians who know nothing about the circumstances in question.
[quote]I don’t know whether agent Peter Strzok and attorney Lisa Page did anything improper, or merely engaged in ill-advised and foolish communications that did not impact their work. I have no quarrel with Mueller for removing Strzok from the investigation, whether for substantive or appearance reasons. But I do know this: these questions deserve to be adjudicated within the confines of a serious internal investigation, not a partisan circus.
[quote]Rosenstein here has, at a minimum, contributed to that circus—at the expense of his own employees. In throwing a career FBI agent and career FBI lawyer to the wolves by authorizing the release to the public of their private text messages—without any finding that they had done anything wrong—he once again sent a message to his workforce that he is not the sort of man with whom you want to share your foxhole. The DOJ and FBI workforces will not forget that. Nor should they.
We explicitly assume that officials at the DoJ, FBI, etc. have personal opinions on a variety of issues. But no single individual controls an investigation, any investigation. And an investigation, and its leaders, are judged by the quality of its findings, findings which have to be reviewed by an independent judiciary.
[quote] The Mueller investigation will ultimately be measured by its work product, not by the text messages or campaign contributions of its staffers from before the investigation even existed. That work product so far is two guilty pleas for lying to the FBI over contacts with the Russians by the Trump campaign and transition—and one completely shocking indictment involving allegations of massive money-laundering by the Trump campaign’s chairman.
There is zero evidence that Strzok's opinion of Trump, Clinton, Sanders, or any other person or subject in any way materially influenced the course of the broader investigation into the Trump campaign and administration. In short, this is, as with every other Republican "outrage" of the past dozen years or so, there is nothing there.

As for Congressional Republicans, they are actively working to undermine the confidence of the American public in the various institutions, from the so-called "voter fraud" to, now, the FBI. This is dangerous. Also noted in that blog post:
[quote]At yesterday’s hearing, Republican Rep. Jim Jordan announced about the Mueller probe that “The public trust in this whole thing is gone.” This is actually wrong.
[quote]In our latest poll on the subject, fully 61 percent of respondents expressed at least some confidence in the Mueller investigation. A similar number expressed at least some confidence in the FBI in connection with the Russia probe. And an even higher percentage, 74 percent, expressed confidence in the FBI generally.
[quote]The trouble is that if enough members of Congress tenaciously attack the institution over a long period of time, Jordan’s words could acquire the quality of self-fulfilling prophecy. It is an enormously damaging undertaking for members of Congress to self-consciously erode public confidence in federal law enforcement.
Just as it has been enormously damaging for members of Congress to self-consciously erode public confidence in other institutions. This has long-term ramifications for the whole country.

Here's my question...There are probably 250 credible people who actually know exactly what went on with Trump and Russia. These are people who have heard and seen the tapes. They are FBI, CIA, other government officials, Congress and their staffs. How long before one of them says enough with this republican BS about trying to take down Mueller and just out and out spills everything. I personally think it has happened but we just don't believe it yet because the truth has leaked through non-traditional sources. I think the fact that Trump and Russia have been working together for years is the bombshell and Trump is doing his bidding. I also think Russia actually changed totals in the election and the GOP took lots of Russian $$$$. Many creditable sources say the scandal is bigger than you will can imagine. Former CIA , FBI and NSA officials seem to be gathering together in opposition to Trump.

The effort to derail Mueller is due to something big coming down. Fox News yappers and other right-wing media are in on it. This anti-Mueller effort would not be going on without the approval of the Kochs, Mercers, Adelson, etc. The Mercers are reportedly implicated with this scandal in at least tangential ways and Bannon and Kellyanne are direct, funded connections. The Kochs and company want this tax bill desperately, and will get it within hours. Plus, Trump and the GOP Congress are delivering on right-wing judges and federal attorneys. They will gut the ACA to nothing, then cut other entitlements, including social security. Really, Putin's Russia with select rich oligarchs, and the masses disenfranchised, are their goals. ....And they are very bitter and vindictive that Roy Moore lost. Mueller's next move needs to be heavy, close to the core, and soon.

Or, alternatively, R553, it's because of his success thus far. When they could pretend that there was nothing there, they didn't attack Mueller, at least not much. Once he started getting indictments and guilty pleas, the shit started getting real and they started getting worried.

Dems are raising alarm bells all over the place that Ryan is getting ready to shut down the House investigation which would give trump cover to fire Mueller. Why the fuck Nunes and Gowdy haven't been arrested yet for leaking and obstruction is a mystery.
|by Anonymous||reply 555||12/15/2017|
I don't really care if the House investigation is shut down. Personally I think the Dems and the Good Guys can get some mileage from it. And honestly, the House investigation has been largely ineffectual and limping along with very little staff, no budget, and constant betrayals from Nunes. So in a way, the House Intel committee disbanding particular investigation might give it new energy. kind of like firing Comey is what spurred the appointment of Mueller. There are other investigations going on and frankly the integrity of the Senate Intel investigation has more substance. The Judiciary committee is also looking at things. So I say, do your worst Paul Ryan. Your days are numbered. What I want to know is when the fuck is the media going to do an intense investigation into the $$$$ the members of Congress are getting from the bad guys.

Before too long, we may be in "constitutional crisis" land.
They are guilty. If they were not guilty and they had nothing to hide, then they would not be trying so hard to shut down all of the investigations. But that is precisely what they are attempting to do.
Remember -- we don't know what the bastards did to conspire to steal the 2016 election. Mueller may know, especially after the guilty pleas and hearing from any cooperators. But, Trump & Co. know what they did and who did what. So, if they are getting worried that the lid is about to be blown off this treasonous scandal, that is probably a pretty good indication that they fear Mueller is getting close and they need to do whatever they can to stop the truth from coming out.
Except, the truth has a way of finding the light of day. For everyone's sake, let's hope that is sooner rather than later.
