Removal from office would be too good for this anti-American national catastrophe. God I wish we could throw his fat ass in prison. Not white-collar resort prison, either. Federal pound-me-in-the-ass prison.

Butina is pleaing and cooperating in any relevant investigation.

Not necessarily Trump related but the NRA must be terrified. Also she better get round the clock security and then witness protection immediately.

There's no other public evidence, but there was a tweet by a Russian official of some connection b/w Butina and the Trump campaign:
Quote :
"Alexander Torshin, a former member of the Russian parliament and one of President Vladimir Putin’s closest allies, tweeted in February 2016 that accused Russian agent Maria Butina reported to him that Trump is “for cooperation with Russia.”"

I’m open to other explanations, but the only one that works for me is Mueller has a shit load of evidence that, taken together, is damning.

My biggest concern is that we aren’t going to be able to see it all.

Various witnesses affiliated with the Trump campaign have been questioned about their conversations with deeply connected individuals from the United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia, and Israel, according to people familiar with the probe. Topics in those meetings ranged from the use of social media manipulation to help install Trump in the White House to the overthrow of the regime in Iran..."

"Because I knew that if anything came of the interview, if it advanced our investigation, the attack from the Trump Administration would be that an Obama holdover had engineered it,” Comey said. “And so I had to make the decision, separate from her, to leave them with their only opportunity to challenge it would be to burn down the entire FBI. To my shock and horror, they’ve tried to do just that — in the face of silence from people in this building.”

Hmm, refer to bottom of my post here: https://thewolfweb.com/message_topic.aspx?topic=648625&page=21#16436774

Perhaps Steele's information really did confuse the Cohens.

Ex-Mossad Head: Russia Decided Trump Was Their Best Candidate, and Ran Him for President

Russia chose the most advantageous candidate and used cyber bots to catapult Trump to the position of U.S. president, Tamir Pardo says

This is the future... these bots will be used to sow chaos, elect and overthrow leaders, and cause wars. It is going to get much much worse, with rapid advances in data science and AI.

I just don’t see what Cohen gets out of forceful denials of this if they are true.

I’d lean toward this being inaccurate reporting even though McClathchy is quite good typically.

Cohen hasn't made good strategic decisions throughout this investigation. He also seems like he wanted to play it like Trump (deny and lie) but wasn't protected by the Republican base voters and couldn't pull it off.

I will add at least one valid concern that I just remembered - I need to go back and source this but if memory serves me correctly, Russia x number of years ago stated clearly to U.S. diplomats that it would have no problem using tactical nuclear weapons during a conflict. Nukes are pretty much the only way Russia could prevent itself from losing a war so it's a credible threat. I can certainly see why people are averse to a war with them considering that, though the question is how credible is it. Not to mention, they could just claim that and continue doing whatever they want in which case we are right back to the point dtownral made.

"The mysterious Russian lawyer who met with top Trump campaign brass months before the 2016 election just got charged with obstruction of justice.

Natalia Veselnitskaya, a lawyer from Moscow billed as bringing dirt on Trump’s opponent, Hillary Clinton, was accused of clandestinely working with a senior Russian prosecutor to stymie a Department of Justice civil fraud investigation into money laundering.

The charges brought by prosecutors in the Southern District of New York aren’t directly tied to Veselnitskaya’s meeting with senior members of Trump’s campaign in Trump Tower at the height of the 2016 election....."

Manafort's lawyers didnt redact their most recent filing properly -- amongst the lies Mueller accused him of telling:

Quote :
"lied about sharing polling data with Mr. Kilimnik related to the 2016 presidential campaign"



So when he was campaign manager, he was sharing internal data with a Russian agent with ties to their intelligence agency? Is that what this is saying?

Guys, collusion isn’t a crime!!!!!!!!

There is a reason why this war drum was beating beaten for months now and it changed once Manafort was indicted.

They all know he did it and they wanted to try and grab the initiative.

Another article on the Middle Eastern connection:

https://www.thedailybeast.com/rick-gates-tells-mueller-about-trump-teams-dealings-with-israeli-intelligence-firm

Quote :
"Rick Gates, the former campaign aide to Donald Trump, is cooperating with Special Counsel Robert Mueller's probe into whether individuals from the Middle East worked with the Trump campaign to influence the election, according to two individuals with first-hand knowledge of the investigation.

Gates has answered questions specifically about Psy Group, an Israeli firm that ex-employees say drew up social media manipulation plans to help the Trump campaign, according to sources familiar with the questions. Mueller's team also asked Gates about interactions with Psy Group's owner, Joel Zamel, and Lebanese-American businessman George Nader, who worked as an emissary for Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates, the sources said.

On Tuesday, Mueller's team said that Gates was cooperating with 'several ongoing investigations' in asking a federal judge to delay his sentencing for financial crimes he pleaded guilty to committing with former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort. One of the ongoing investigations is into possible Middle Eastern election influence, three people with knowledge of the probe told The Daily Beast."

"Now the two sources have told BuzzFeed News that Cohen also told the special counsel that after the election, the president personally instructed him to lie — by claiming that negotiations ended months earlier than they actually did — in order to obscure Trump’s involvement.

The special counsel’s office learned about Trump’s directive for Cohen to lie to Congress through interviews with multiple witnesses from the Trump Organization and internal company emails, text messages, and a cache of other documents. Cohen then acknowledged those instructions during his interviews with that office."

Pelosi knows an overwhelming pile of evidence of wrongdoing on multiple fronts will be needed to get the GOP controlled Senate to convict. Without that, impeachment is just a useless exercise. Cult 45 won't budge unless there is no way out.
