“The most obvious explanation is probably the right one.”
Closing the loop.
Plus: SCOTUS takes a pass on the Mueller magical mystery subpoena.
“We will not stand idly by while outside influences seek to corrupt and pervert that process.”
Plus: Time’s Manafort-Russia connections lack a couple of dots.
Come for the paranoid hook, stay for the substance.
Let’s not make a deal
Collusion or just another FARA case?
Mueller hardest hit?
“… specifically seeking to impede the ability of the president to exercise his constitutional pardon authority.”
“What does this mean for President Trump?”
“it remains unclear whether Manafort has agreed to cooperate with prosecutors…”
Nothing to trade?
All over the place
Cheer up, little camper
“I like Joe but he doesn’t vote—he just doesn’t vote for us.”
Standard Operating Procedure which judges typically deny.
“I have the marshals’ protection”
“Manafort’s defense attorney, Kevin Downing, called the questions from the jury…a ‘good sign.'”
“Cooperators are not the Sisters of Mercy.”
“Obstruct justice in plain sight”?
Last stop for ten years?
And how does this relate to collusion?
Let the good times roll
“I have no appetite for this.”
Get out! He’s calling from INSIDE THE HOUSE!
“Cheryl Mills and Huma Abedin both told the FBI they were unaware that Clinton was using a private server…”
“You don’t really care about Mr. Manafort’s bank fraud.”
“So disgraceful that the questions concerning the Russian Witch Hunt were “leaked” to the media.”
More smoke, still searching for fire
“Gates told him Person A was a former Russian Intelligence Officer with GRU.”
New Mueller interest in Manafort looks … older than you’d guess.
“Gates is apt to serve about 18 months in prison.”
But on whom?
Regrets. He has a few.
“The investigation of Mr. Manafort is completely unmoored from the special counsel’s original jurisdiction…”
“They’re going to crack Don Junior like an egg on national TV.”
“I think it’s so important that there be clear lines when it comes to the separation of powers.”
