US: Trump's ex-lawyer deserves prison despite cooperation

Special counsel Robert Mueller says President Donald Trump's former personal lawyer went to "significant lengths" to assist Mueller's probe, though he initially lied.

Shit, I hear the Manafort memo is filed under seal. That does mean that Mueller doesn't want others, not just Manafort, to see what he knows and they don't. So, sadly we don't get to know either. Bada Bing

New Mueller filing says Trump’s ex-lawyer Michael Cohen was in touch with a Russian seeking ‘political synergy’ with campaign

They revealed that Cohen told them of what seemed to be a previously unknown November 2015 contact from a Russian national, who claimed to be a “trusted person” in the Russian Federation offering the campaign “political synergy” and “synergy on a government level.”

Cohen told investigators the person, who was not identified, repeatedly proposed a meeting between Trump and Russian President Vladi­mir Putin, saying that such a meeting could have a “phenomenal” impact, “not only in political but in a business dimension as well,” the special counsel’s office wrote.

Trump Campaign, NRA Illegally Coordinated Ads, Groups Allege

Donald Trump’s presidential campaign may have illegally coordinated with the National Rifle Association in the final weeks of the 2016 presidential election, two watchdog groups said in a complaint filed Friday with the Federal Election Commission.

The NRA’s Institute for Legislative Action and its political action committee, the NRA Political Victory Fund, placed $25 million worth of television ads through the same ad-buying executives who also arranged spots for Trump’s campaign.

I'm quoting what I just posted to point something out. Look at where Mueller uses the phrase "political Synergy" in the first sentence. Check out what synergy means.

synergy; "the interaction or cooperation of two or more organizations, substances, or other agents to produce a combined effect greater than the sum of their separate effects."

Can you say collusion/conspiracy? I can, I can say collusion/conspiracy. More importantly, can Mueller say collusion/conspiracy. Yep, he just did.

Oh shit Donnie, oh shit.

The Joss Whedon script for Serenity, where Wash lives, is Serenity-190pages.pdf at www.mediafire.com/folder/1uwh75oa407q8/Firefly


In many scandals -- even Watergate -- the party of the accused remained loyal to the alleged wrongdoer for a long time until the political costs become very clear.

If the House moved forward and voted for articles of impeachment, the biggest question has to do with the Senate, where two-thirds of the chamber would have to vote in favor of removing a president. Will there be enough evidence to persuade 20 Republicans to join Democrats in favor of a conviction?

Ironically, the other insurance policy that President Trump has been counting on -- the very conservative Vice President Mike Pence -- can turn into a liability. After all, if Republicans reach a tipping point in 2019 and determine that a scandal-ridden President can drag down the rest of the party, they might rally behind Pence for president, assured that he would stay loyal to the party agenda.

These are unsettling days for the Trump administration. The President is hoping that he can simply ignore what the investigators have to say or else just tweet them out of existence. But that's not how Washington works. It is a tough town and there are breaking points for any party when the costs of supporting a politician become unbearable. That's when the partisanship that the President has counted on could turn into his biggest problem.

Since the U.S. intelligence community released its report www.dni.gov/files/documents/ICA_2017_01.pdf on the Russian campaign to assist Donald Trump in the 2016 election, the American people have been seeking an answer as to whether the Trump campaign colluded with its Russian counterpart. In the endless speculation about the direction of the investigation, a common view was that maybe the investigation would never implicate President Trump or find any collusion.

The likelihood that Trump will experience any consequences for his actions — even if there is ironclad proof that Trump committed very serious crimes — is close to zero so long as Trump occupies the White House.

Simply put, the framers of our Constitution had no idea how politics actually work. And that left us with a Constitution that offers no good remedies against a criminal president.

Trump won't be punished. The best hope is that he won't be reelected.

I heard a constitutional lawyer claim she looked into if a president could or could not be indicted. She said all those who made the case you could not were representing presidents; we'll see. You can't make the argument a president can't be indicted if he shot and killed someone. Therefore I believe he can.

As for your case about the republican led senate, we know, we know. What we don't know is what else will be revealed that may change that. Right now we have court documents claiming Trump committed two felonies while campaigning. I'm betting there are many more.

As for collusion, we know there was through Cohen, Manafort, and others. Looks like Stone and Trump Jr. to name two more. Remember Jared Kushner was in the Trump Tower meeting as well. Remember, who did Trump Jr. speak with on the phone when he left that meeting. Those phone records are going to be the first thing the democrats subpoena. Collusion, collusion, collusion...

I think you guys better temper your expectations and take a page out of Second's book.

My guess is that the investigation comes up with absolutely nothing, but even if there were some "things that make you go hmmmmm", it's never going to be enough to get the Senate to convict.


There have been leaks all over the place the last 2 to 3 years. Do you really think that if Trump was going to go down that we wouldn't have heard some real info about it by now?

All The Criminal Charges To Emerge So Far From Robert Mueller's Investigation. Despite the trolls posting no evidence. Add to that, Trump has been accused of two felonies. Two felonies listed in Cohens indictment. This must be the most successful witch hunt in history. And according to some, with absolutely no evidence at all. If Mueller can do all this without any evidence imagine what he could do if he had some. Very exciting...

The longer special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election has gone on, the more President Trump has railed against it. Since the investigation began in May 2017, the president has taken to Twitter and dismissed it as a "witch hunt" more than 125 times.

That criticism aside, the special counsel investigation has resulted in criminal counts against more than 30 people and three Russian entities. And while the final outcome of the Mueller probe remains far from certain, it has already generated new insights into how Russia targeted the election, the presidential transition and Trump's business empire.

Convicted: Paul Manafort

President Trump's former campaign chairman pleaded guilty in September 2018 to conspiracy against the United States and conspiracy to obstruct justice — charges that stemmed from a range of alleged crimes committed over more than a decade as a lobbyist, and later, a member of the Trump campaign.
Manafort had been set to go on trial in Washington, D.C., but his plea meant his case did not go before a jury.

As part of his plea deal, Manafort agreed to cooperate with the Mueller investigation, but in November, the special counsel's office told a federal judge he had "breached the plea agreement."

Prosecutors said Manafort committed new crimes "by lying to the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Special Counsel's Office on a variety of subject matters." Manafort's attorneys said he gave the government useful information.

In an earlier case, a federal jury found Manafort guilty on eight of the 18 counts he faced in a sprawling tax and bank fraud case.
Article continues after this message from our sponsor

It marked an important milestone for the Mueller investigation: the first case to reach trial. Prosecutors accused Manafort of failing to pay taxes on millions of dollars that he earned as a consultant for pro-Russia politicians in Ukraine and kept hidden from the IRS.

The jury deadlocked on 10 counts, prompting U.S. District Judge T.S. Ellis III to declare a mistrial on those remaining charges.

Pleaded guilty: Michael Cohen

At one time, lawyer Michael Cohen said he would "take a bullet" for Donald Trump. But since pleading guilty in November 2018 to lying to Congress, Cohen has raised new questions about Trump's business interests in Russia during a pivotal period of the 2016 presidential campaign.

Cohen admitted that he lied when he told Congress that discussions about a potential Trump Tower project in Moscow ended in January 2016. Actually, he said, they continued through June of that year.

According to court documents, Cohen also initially said that his overtures to the Russian government went unrequited, but as talks progressed, he eventually heard back from a top aide to Russian President Vladimir Putin: Dmitry Peskov.

Cohen also pleaded guilty in August 2018 to five counts of tax evasion, one count of falsifying submissions to a bank and two campaign finance violations — a plea that directly implicated the president.

The campaign finance violations stem from two payments that Cohen helped arrange ahead of Election Day in 2016 to buy the silence of former Playboy model Karen McDougal and the adult film actress Stephanie Clifford, also known as Stormy Daniels. The women say they had sexual relationships with Trump.
Trump has acknowledged that he reimbursed Cohen for a $130,000 payment to Clifford — but denies the alleged relationships with both women.

Cohen told a federal judge that he made the payments "in coordination with and at the direction of a candidate for federal office," and that he did so "for the principal purpose of influencing the election."
Cohen's sentencing hearing is scheduled for Dec. 12.
Read the criminal information // More from NPR

Pleaded guilty: W. Samuel Patten

W. Samuel Patten pleaded guilty in August 2018 to failing to register as a foreign agent for lobbying work he performed for a political party in Ukraine called Opposition Bloc.

Prosecutors said Patten partnered with a Russian national to lobby on behalf of the pro-Russia party, providing political consulting to members, including an unnamed Ukrainian oligarch. They received more than $1 million for that work, which included setting up meetings with government officials and members of Congress, and drafting op-eds to appear on behalf of the oligarch inside U.S. news outlets.
Though unnamed in court papers, the Russian national is believed to be Konstantin Kilimnik, who for years worked closely with Paul Manafort in Ukraine. Patten's case was brought by the U.S. Attorney's Office for the District of Columbia on a referral from the special counsel.

Patten has not yet been sentenced.


Pleaded guilty: Rick Gates

Former Trump campaign official Rick Gates leaves federal court in Washington, D.C. on Dec. 11, 2017.

Like Manafort, Rick Gates was once a top aide to Trump, serving as his deputy campaign chairman during the 2016 presidential race, and later, as a senior aide on the presidential inaugural committee.

Before that, Gates spent years as Manafort's protege.
Gates agreed to cooperate with the Mueller investigation after pleading guilty in February 2018 to financial fraud and lying to federal investigators.
He was originally charged alongside Manafort with conspiracy to launder money, making false statements and other charges in connection to their work advising Russia-friendly politicians in Ukraine.

At Manafort's trial, Gates testified that he and his former partner used offshore bank accounts and wire transfers in order to hide money from the IRS. Gates faces as much as six years in prison. He has continued cooperating with the government as its investigations go forward and has not yet been sentenced.
Read the original indictment // More from NPR

Pleaded guilty:Alex van der Zwann

Alex van der Zwann became the first person to be sentenced in the Mueller probe after he pleaded guilty to lying to investigators.

The son-in-law of a Russia-based billionaire, van der Zwaan acknowledged in federal court in February 2018 that he misled investigators about a conversation he had with Rick Gates, the former Trump campaign aide, in September 2016.
The conversation focused on a report that van der Zwann's law firm prepared about the prosecution of Yulia Tymoshenko, a political rival of former Ukrainian president Viktor Yanukovych.

He was sentenced to 30 days in prison and a $20,000 fine.
Read the statement of the offense // More from NPR

Pleaded guilty: Richard Pinedo

Richardo Pinedo is a California man who in February 2018 pleaded guilty to identity fraud.

Pinedo admitted to making tens of thousands of dollars by creating hundreds of bank accounts, often using stolen identities. He then sold those accounts on the Web to unidentified foreign users.

It's unclear to what extent, if any, those users included suspects connected to the Russia investigation. But it's possible they were used as part of a scheme described by Mueller's office in which Russians intent on attacking the 2016 election moved money around the world to pay for virtual private networks, Web hosting services and other such cyber-tools.

In an interview with The New York Times, Pinedo's attorney, Jeremy I. Lessem, said that if his client's actions did assist "any individuals, including foreign nationals, with interfering in the American presidential election, it was done completely without his knowledge or understanding."

Pindedo was sentenced to six months in prison, six months of home confinement and 100 hours of community service.


Pleaded guilty: Michael Flynn

During the 2016 campaign, Michael Flynn led chants of "lock her up" at the Republican National Convention, and after Trump's victory, was appointed to serve as his first national security adviser. But he lasted less than a month on the job before resigning, and in December 2017, he pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI about his contacts with the Russian ambassador during the transition.

The single count against Flynn related to discussions with ambassador Sergey Kislyak around two issues: Obama administration sanctions on Russia and a United Nations resolution condemning Israeli settlements.

According to court documents, Flynn denied to investigators that he asked Kislyak to either defeat or delay the U.N. vote on settlements, and that he also asked the Russians to refrain from retaliating against the sanctions. The government said Flynn was directed by "a very senior member" of the transition team.

Flynn, a former Army general, would eventually admit to misleading the FBI about those conversations, and as part of his plea deal, agreed to cooperate with the special counsel's investigation. Ahead of his sentencing hearing, prosecutors said Flynn had provided "substantial" aid with "several ongoing investigations," telling a court his assistance merited a judge's consideration.

Pleaded guilty: George Papadopoulos

George Papadopoulos was the first person charged in the Mueller investigation and pleaded guilty in October 2017 to lying to the FBI.
Papadopoulos was a junior foreign policy adviser to the Trump 2016 campaign — one of a number brought on early amidst questions about who would advise Trump about foreign affairs. Trump once praised him as an "excellent guy."

In January 2017, the FBI questioned Papadopoulos about his interactions with a professor based in London with links to the Russian government. The official told Papadopoulos that the Russians had "dirt" on Hillary Clinton in the form of "thousands of emails," according to court documents.

Prosecutors say Papadopoulos went on to use the professor's connections in an effort to arrange a meeting between the Trump campaign and Russian officials.
In his interview with the FBI, Papadopoulos originally described the professor as "a nothing," but investigators said that "In truth ... Papadopoulos understood that the professor had substantial connections to Russian government officials."
Papadopoulos' attorney said when he was sentenced that he didn't recall whether he'd communicated the information about the dirt on Clinton to his superiors on the Trump campaign.

He was sentenced to 14 days in prison. In a statement provided to NPR after his release in December 2018, his lawyer emphasized there was no evidence that he colluded with Russia and that he has never been accused of doing so or of being involved in any plot to undermine the presidential election.

Indicted: Russian Intelligence

In July 2018, the Justice Department brought charges against 12 Russian intelligence officers on a litany of alleged crimes related to Russia's hacking of the Democratic National Committee, the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee and the Clinton presidential campaign.

Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who announced the charges, said the defendants worked for the Russian government's Main Intelligence Directorate of the General Staff — known by its Russian initials as the GRU.

In a 29-page indictment, the Justice Department outlined how the attackers were able to access and steal sensitive Democratic Party emails and information, and then carefully timed their release for maximum political impact through fictitious online personas that included "DCLeaks" and "Guccifer 2.0."

The Russians also targeted state election systems, and stole information related to approximately 500,000 voters. However, because Russia is unlikely to extradite the accused suspects, the case is unlikely to go to trial.
Read the indictment // More from NPR

Indicted: Konstantin Kilimnik

Konstantin Kilimnik worked alongside Paul Manafort in Ukraine for more than a decade. He started as a translator, and later helped run his lobbying operations in Kiev, according to Politico.

In June 2018, the special counsel's office charged Kilimnik with obstruction of justice for allegedly trying to persuade witnesses to lie to the jury in the government's then-pending case against Manafort. Ultimately, Manafort pleaded guilty and the matter did not go to trial.

Kilimnik is believed to be living in Russia, meaning it's unlikely he'll be extradited to the U.S. for trial.

Indicted: Russian Internet trolls
A federal grand jury indicted 13 Russians and three Russian entities in February 2018 for what Rosenstein described to reporters as "information warfare" with "the stated goal of spreading distrust towards the candidates and the political system in general."

At the center of the indictment was the work the Internet Research Agency, the notorious Russian troll farm based in St. Petersburg. It was there, Rosenstein said, that the suspects "took extraordinary steps to make it appear that they were ordinary American political activists."

They created "hundreds of social media accounts" to divide Americans around polarizing issues, and according to the indictment, "engaged in operations primarily intended to communicate derogatory information about Hillary Clinton ... and to support Bernie Sanders and then-candidate Donald Trump."

The indictment doesn't assess whether the disinformation scheme succeeded in swaying votes, and the U.S. intelligence community also says it hasn't assessed what kind of effect the scheme had on the outcome of the 2016 White House race. Barring Russia's cooperation in extraditing the accused disinformation specialists, they are unlikely to face trial.

Your problem dummy, is that you and your troll friends are constantly forced to respond to posts updating the trouble Trump, his family, the people he put into important government positions and his absolutely stupid policy decisions and lies with posts like your last one. Only deflections, nothing even remotely close to posting evidence showing Trump and his band of losers is innocent.

Come on dummy. Show us all that everything Mueller has presented is false. Come on dummy, show us with evidence how all the accusations against the current administration are wrong, fake news.

Every thing I've been posting for the past two years so far was right on the money. That's not whining asshole, that's reality. You should give it a try sometime.

Come on dummy, start presenting some facts to back up your assertions this is a witch hunt.

Look back over the past few years folks. Try to see it in it's totality. All that's been exposed concerning Trump and Russia. It shows the most obvious and extensive case of collusion in this countries history, with more to come. And What Mueller is doing is meticulously laid out according to the law. No evidence of collusion my ass.

Trump Executives Face U.S. Campaign-Finance Probe, Source Says

Federal prosecutors in Manhattan are investigating whether anyone in the Trump Organization violated campaign-finance laws, in a follow-up to their conviction last month of Michael Cohen, according to a person familiar with the matter.

The inquiry, not previously reported, shows that the Manhattan U.S. attorney’s office doesn’t intend to stand down following the guilty plea from Trump’s longtime personal lawyer. Manhattan prosecutors are working on a parallel track to U.S. Special Counsel Robert Mueller, who is tasked with examining Russian interference in the presidential election and who is referring other matters as they arise to appropriate sections of the Justice Department.

Trump inauguration paid Trump Organization, with Ivanka calling shots

The nonprofit committee that raised money to organize President Donald Trump’s inauguration in January 2017 paid for rooms, meals and event space at Trump’s hotel in Washington, D.C., according to emails and receipts WNYC and ProPublica have obtained.

Ivanka Trump, the president’s daughter, represented the family business in negotiations over what the inaugural committee would pay for use of the hotel, the report says. If the Trump Organization charged more than the going rate, it could be a violation of federal tax law.

The WNYC-ProPublica report cites an email someone with the inauguration committee sent to Ivanka Trump and others with the company expressing concerns that the hotel was overcharging for its event spaces – and what would happen “when this is audited.”

The press got word something Mueller was going down today at the courthouse. They lined up to see who's lawyers would be leaving after the filing to get a hint at who was involved. They couldn't get close enough to see because the entire floor of the courthouse where the filing was taking place was closed down. Think Trump...Grand Jury

You might need to rethink that "lol". In short, Manafort and Trump were working together to discredit the investigators as well as potential witnesses.

Manafort advised administration officials in the spring and summer of 2017 on how to politically undermine the FBI and Mueller investigation in three ways, according to government records and interviews with three people with knowledge of the contacts. He also gave them advice on how some of the witnesses against both him and the president might be discredited.

The end result? Manafort will be getting more jail time than he already has. Other result? Trump is the other half of the criminal duo Manafort/Trump. Trump is eligible for the same jail time, now that Mueller has learned what Manafort/Trump were doing to thwart the investigation.
