Sounds like we're all in agreement!

Very convenient that we can keep this thread open for the next investigation!

Nothing matters anymore. if Trump actually shoots someone (in his words) on Fifth avenue in broad daylight and in front of witnesses , we will still be debating whether there was a secret fake news media shooter on the grassy knoll who entrapped Trump.  Was it really his finger on the trigger ... lets get all the facts before we rise to judgement, etc. etc.   

If a democrat president had called for a private citizen to be jailed, called for banning a book, and playing a d*** measuring contest with a nuclear armed madman, republicans would be calling in SEAL team 6 to seize the White House . 

This investigation will do what it needs to and then we will be sitting on a full blown constitutional crisis.  Repubs as usual won't do anything about it and ossified Dem leadership in Pelosi and Schumer are too wedded to their legacy roles and feckless to do anything to break the glass.

But  hey , as long as Dow is on the way to 36,000 , who cares right :)

Donald Jr Tweet:

“Steve had the honor of working in the White House & serving the country. Unfortunately, he squandered that privilege & turned that opportunity into a nightmare of backstabbing, harassing, leaking, lying & undermining the President. Steve is not a strategist, he is an opportunist”

I can’t stop laughing. What do you expect from Steve?

Not only that, but the author of the Steele Dossier may now be under investigation, as Senators Grassley/Graham have just referred him to the DOJ. 

This whole Russia conspiracy is starting to backfire on the Democrats big time.

Blame it on the “coffee boy” that jump started the Russian investigation. According to reports he told an Australian diplomat regarding the emails. (You can’t make this stuff up)

Some people think this is precisely what happened.  Congress is getting very close to putting the pieces together here and many regard the NY Times story as a smokescreen.  For instance, if "coffee boy" was the reason the investigation was launched in July 2016, why was he not even interviewed by the FBI until January 2017?  It has the feel of covering your tracks after the fact.

@ double L

“In case you haven't heard, the New York Times reported on Saturday that Trump's former foreign policy adviser, George Papadopoulos, the guy who copped a plea in exchange for cooperation with Justice Department special counsel Robert Mueller, got drunk in a London bar in May of 2016 and spilled to the Australian High Commissioner to Britain, Alexander Downer, that the Russians had dirt on Hillary Clinton.”

That would have been less than a month after Papadopoulos first heard that Russia had emails that would embarrass the former secretary of state from Joseph Mifsud, a Maltese professor with contacts in the Russian ministry of foreign affairs. And it was months before the release of the DNC emails in July, which evidently prompted the Aussies to alert the FBI about Papadopoulos' loose-lipped blather. It was then that the U.S. government opened a formal investigation into just what in the hell was going on with the Trump campaign and Moscow:

It was not, as Mr. Trump and other politicians have alleged, a dossier compiled by a former British spy hired by a rival campaign. Instead, it was firsthand information from one of America’s closest intelligence allies.

Interviews and previously undisclosed documents show that Mr. Papadopoulos played a critical role in this drama and reveal a Russian operation that was more aggressive and widespread than previously known. They add to an emerging portrait, gradually filled in over the past year in revelations by federal investigators, journalists and lawmakers, of Russians with government contacts trying to establish secret channels at various levels of the Trump campaign.”

And BTW , it doesn't take a STABLE GENIUS to figure out that these so called "investigations" into Clinton Foundation and Steele Dossier author are started purely out of spite and massive pressure on the Sessions DOJ by Trump.  This looks weak , and not something "earth shattering. " or  "backfiring on dems " .   If you look at the news cycle , these are buried deep below Trump's self inflicted wounds .

“Special counsel Mueller indicts 13 Russians with interfering in 2016 U.S. election

Thirteen Russian nationals have been indicted by a federal grand jury on charges of interfering in the 2016 presidential election — including supporting Donald Trump's campaign and "disparaging" Hillary Clinton, special counsel Robert Mueller announced Friday.

The indictments — part of Mueller's ongoing investigation — are the first tied directly to Russian meddling in the race for the White House.

"Some defendants, posing as U.S. persons and without revealing their Russian association, communicated with unwitting individuals associated with the Trump Campaign and with other political activists to seek to coordinate political activities," the indictment says.

Some of those charged also "posted derogatory information" about candidates in the Republican primaries, including Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio, and supporting Bernie Sanders and Trump. By the time of the general election, the Russians' efforts included "supporting the presidential campaign of then-candidate Donald J. Trump and disparaging Hillary Clinton," the indictment says.”

“WASHINGTON — A California man illegally provided hundreds of bank account numbers to a Russian operation that used social media platforms to sow political discord around the 2016 presidential election, the special counsel investigating Moscow’s interference in the 2016 election revealed on Friday.

The man, Richard Pinedo of Santa Paula, Calif., pleaded guilty this week to identity fraud, according to a statement of offense. Other documents unsealed by the special counsel, Robert S. Mueller III, show that Mr. Pinedo’s plea supported the indictment of 13 Russian nationals and three Russian organizations, which also was revealed on Friday.

Mr. Pinedo operated a company between 2014 and December 2017 that procured American bank account numbers to sell to clients, according to court papers. The company, Auction Essistance, provided services “designed to circumvent the security features of large online digital payment companies.”

Mr. Pinedo “frequently” bought and sold account numbers with people he knew were outside the United States, according to the statement.”

My comment: Someone from Cali is taking a plea deal. What was this person thinking in the first place?
