So which of the following is Mueller's greatest success so far?

1) George P. pleads guilty to lying.

2) Gen. Flynn pleads guilty to lying.  (Although a new judge has been assigned and this plea might change.)

3) Manafort/Gates charged with laundering money and not registering as foreign agents in 2006.

4) 13 Russians charged with identity theft, bank fraud, and purchasing Facebook ads.

I like how when Russians obtain fraudulent IDs and SSNs they’re charged with a crime, but when illegal aliens do it they’re “dreamers”.

THIS COMMENT SAYS IT ALL . This is the corrosive effect trump has had on his followers

On one hand you have people (let’s not even call them children or dreamers lest someone cry  “gotcha “) coming to this country to create a better life for themselves , struggling . They go through exploitation and abuse in many cases , including at the hands of racists .

Then you have a well organized and well funded attack on our country’s sovereignty by an outside hostile foreign power , you the know the same one , Raegan used to rail against .

Any other day , we would call this TREASON , especially if the other party held such views . But here , the echo chamber will rise up to defend such nasty views .


All the people throwing up and becoming “sick” because someone dare raise the issue of controlling access to AR 15s , will now be silent . Again , this attitude says all you need to know

There will be a ton of brickbats thrown at me after this post , but for you, the casual reader of this forum / thread , this is a very instructive post into the mindset of the right wing today


The other thread I posed on the article from the Atlantic couldn’t have been more timely

It's a toss up between Flynn and Manafort since they previously worked as foreign agents and were already connected with Russia.  Flynn's son is up to no good so who knows how much he will squeal to protect his family. You don't plead guilty to a lesser crime unless you know you've done something much worse and have been caught.

My guess this is going to lead back to Jared and the Mercers. Trump was probably too clueless and thickheaded to think he needed anyone's help to win the election.

Thats the difference between Republicans and Democrats  in their present form. ... at-least one party cares a little bit about this nations sovereignty ... even if it leads to whomever it does

“George W. Bush: 'Clear evidence Russians meddled' in election

Former president George W. Bush appeared to take aim at President Trump on Thursday when he said at an economic summit that there was "pretty clear evidence that the Russians meddled" in the 2016 U.S. election.

"Whether (Russia) affected the outcome is another question," Bush said. "It’s problematic that a foreign nation is involved in our election system. Our democracy is only as good as people trust the results."

Intelligence agencies have concluded that Russia meddled in the presidential election, and numerous investigations are underway to determine whether Trump’s campaign aided the Kremlin. Trump has consistently disputed allegations of Russian interference in the race or that members of his campaign team in any way "colluded" with Moscow.

It wasn't the first time Bush has spoken publicly about alleged Russian interference in the election. In an address in New York last year, he said: "The Russian government has made a project of turning Americans against each other."

Twitter account of Rob Goldman, VP of Facebook Ads:

The majority of the Russian ad spend happened AFTER the election.  We shared that fact, but very few outlets have covered it because it doesn’t align with the main media narrative of Trump and the election.

Obviously, what would you expect from a VP of facebook ads !! His job is on the line :)

The grand jury indictment secured by Mueller clearly says  that "the goal of Russian operatives was to influence the 2016 election, particularly by criticizing Hillary Clinton and supporting Trump and Bernie Sanders"

I will take Mueller's investigative work any day over that of a corporate shill trying to cover up for his own missteps .  I have seen too many of these cases as a management consultant to believe stuff from corporate types at face value.

That's not quite correct.

The indictment concludes that the Internet Research Agency "had a strategic goal to sow discord in the U.S. political system."

I think we can agree that the Ruskies, at least partially, accomplished their goal.

I also think Rob Goldman isn't so much worried about his job as he is worried about Facebook being blamed by Democrats for Crooked Hillary's loss.  If SJW's started abandoning their FB accounts en masse, that would be a huge drop in active user count for their ad rates.  They also want to avoid government regulation which is why they are falling all over themselves to cooperate with Mueller and change their policies regarding ad sales to hostile foreign actors. 

Ultimately, I don't think Rob Goldman's job is in danger because he was taking orders from the top.  Zuckerberg is the one who defined Facebook as a "platform" not a "content provider".  He now realizes what a mistake that was.
