Re: U.S. v. Manafort, Gates: 17-cr-201: USDC for DC; Re Money-Laundering, Conspiracy & FARA

Rumor on The Twitter is that Gates will get an 18-month sentence in his plea deal. No citations and no details, so get out your salt shaker. But if that does turn out to be the recommended sentence, does that indicate anything about the value or lack thereof of Gates' information :?: Flynn's deal i...

Re: Mueller's investigation of Trump

I am curious to find out the truth about Wikileaks' backing and hence its motives. I rather naïvely accepted Wikileaks as being what it seemed and I was pleased that it uncovered some of the dirty work of western governments against their citizens. But the timing and selectivity of its releases dur...

But he had nothing to do with assisting any type of foreign national at all." Pinedo thought he was helping people fraudulently open online bank accounts, but...

Speaking of tangential players I would love it if Manafort’s money laundering scheme fell apart when he was unable to develop the real property in the Hollywood Hills. But I doubt it.

This. This right here. This is why Trump needs stop with the Mueller "witch hunt" bullshit. Even if it turns out that they're never able to connect any of this stuff with the campaign, it is still pretty obvious that the Russians were meddling with our electoral process, with help from American citi...

IIRC, he brought people to take video of himself "arresting" the grand jury foreman, and he didn't use violence. He wasn't charged with assault, only interfering with court proceedings or some such.

Dangerous, no. Gathering a gang posse to kidnap "perform a citizen's arrest" on public officials just doing their jobs is sufficiently dangerous for me. Me, too.

Re: Military Mischief

I think they’re using “fired” in a colloquial sense. You can be fired from the military, but only after they’ve afforded you the due process so valued by our president. The amount of process due varies by service, and also depends on the rank of the accused, the time in service, and the type of offe...

Maybe - After the fact, under pressure, people in positions of responsibility (or who had responsibility) will often weasel around their earlier decisions.
