Nothing groundbreaking from Mueller other than he affirmed they were never going to make a determination on charging POTUS because of existing DOJ guidelines and basically tells Congress to do its job and make that determination if they wish.

Having trouble sleeping tonight so I checked out https://www.foxnews.com

 

Interesting that the Epstein case is still getting headlines in the rest of the media world this weekend (including the release of his jail visitors during his 2008 sentence), yet Fox News has not one mention on its home page.

 

I thought the guy was best friends with Bill Clinton who practically lived on his jet for months on end?    What happened to that story?   Not even a single sentence this weekend....

 

Clearly something in the case is not pleasing Trump state media!  😅

Its hard to say when and how fast news on Epstein will come out. The guy is an onion of bad news for all parties involved.  He might have connections to Israeli spy agency -mossad, mob, drug gangs perhaps, sex trafficking, maybe Russians, and obvious all we know for sure at this point, billionaires. They are saying the one thing Epstein may have done to make money is blackmail people at his parties with videos of them with underage girls, or maybe that is just Dershowitz’s excuse.  

  Currency traders at various desks say they have never traded with Epstein. This is supposedly what Epstein was saying he was doing as a job. So if he isn’t buying or selling stocks, bonds, or currency what is he doing?  Which is what the court said in a brief this week for his bail hearing “whatever it is that he does”. 

  So at this point it is either or both a ponzi scheme or my suspicion, providing the mob/Russians clean money to bring back into the US from offshore.  Epstein isn’t talking.

   I would think we should be getting some juicy bits this week or next of people found on video that were in his safe.

Quote

Federal prosecutors' decision to end an investigation into hush money payments to women claiming affairs with Donald Trump relied at least in part on long-standing Justice Department policy that a sitting president cannot be charged with a crime, a person familiar with the matter said Thursday.

 

The Justice Department told a federal judge on Monday that it had "effectively concluded" its investigation into efforts to silence the women in the final months of the 2016 campaign, but did not explain why it had done so. Prosecutors have said the payoffs violated a federal law that restricts campaign donations. 

 

A person familiar with the case, who was not authorized to discuss it publicly, said it was unclear whether prosecutors made a determination that they had sufficient evidence to bring a case against Trump or anyone other than his former personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, who pleaded guilty last year. But the Justice Department's opinion that a president cannot be indicted factored into the decision to end the probe, the person said.

 

Cool, cool.

 

If the only reason you don't get prosecuted for committing crimes - *twice* - is that you're the President, maybe you shouldn't be the President anymore.

George Nader indicted on child porn, child sex transportation charges

 

Quote

An well-connected adviser to the United Arab Emirates, Nader was seen by Trump allies as an operator helpful at navigating politics in the Middle East. He attracted Mueller’s interest for helping arrange a meeting in the Seychelles in January 2017 between Erik Prince, a Trump supporter who founded the private security firm Blackwater, and a Russian official close to Russian President Vladi­mir Putin.

 

Nader also visited the White House several times after the Seychelles encounter, meeting with senior adviser Stephen K. Bannon and Jared Kushner, the president’s son-in-law and senior adviser, according to people familiar with his visits.

Props, uh, to Corey Lewankowski for showing us the House Dems aren't prepared for this (or any other) fight.

 

After that joke of a hearing, Nadler is "considering" holding him in contempt.  Wtf, just do it already.

In the alternate world of the Trump cult, white is black and up is down. And if you don't like the reality you're confronted with, choose a new one...

This may be extreme, but for a blatant liar like Lewandowski isn’t he committing treason and should be sent to prison?

 

Even if he isn’t formally in cahoots with Russia or another power he is certainly acting against America’s best interest. Which is treason. Back in the Revolutionary times he would have been tarred and feathered, which depending how hot the tar was is the death penalty by burning alive.

 

Not that I’m suggesting anything, but I wouldn’t be opposed to seeing Lewandowski in some tar-blackened chicken feathers. But I trust our criminal justice system to do a better job handling him.

Not sure Lewandowski should be tried for treason. He is just a scoundrel and a liar but i repeat myself. 

  However, the treason word is getting bandied about quite a bit tonight. It sounds like the Schiff subpoena from Friday is getting more meat on the bones. 

CNN and other news outlets are reporting that this does indeed involve trump. It has something to do with the Helsinki trip. From what i’m piecing together it is a promise to putin. It also sounds like trump gave details to putin about the Russian mole/spy that the US extracted.  This might be just the beginning of what was given up by trump. 

    For those that recall the incident with the translator there that trump insisted that the translator destroy their notes. That was a very odd request.   So the whistleblower could be the translator or could be someone else that overheard conversations. 

   If this continues this will be a very dark cloud over the white house.   I really don’t see how fox news and the GOP trump cult can spin this.  This is the baptist evangelical cult leader caught in bed with a boy moment.

By the way, if you haven’t listened to it yet, I couldn’t recommend a podcast more.

 

This episode is a fantastic recap of how corrupt and unlawful his administration has really been...but everyone should really go back and listen to the whole series.

Meanwhile Betsy DeVos violated a court order to stop collecting student loan payments for Concordia College, which closed in 2015.  However, the $100,000 fine levied will be paid by the government, not by her personally, even though it was her responsibility to stop collecting these payments.  She's not held accountable, so why should she stop?  It's hard for me to think of another member of the current cabinet less prepared or qualified for their position than her.

How can the DOJ run a private investigation, I thought they should be done in the open with due process?

 

This is more likely, albeit slightly less despicable....

I have a feeling this will go nowhere. Trump just wants a headline. 

 

Or a distraction. Here's how to turn a potential distraction into the thing from which they are trying to distract...

Bolton is weighing giving a deposition in the impeachment inquiry.  Amazing.

 

You can photoshop a guy out of a photo, but you can't photoshop him out of existence (unless you're Vlad "The Apothecary" Putin)....

 

Is Trump Taking A Page Out Of Stalin's Book?

Why did John Bolton get replaced with Bill Barr in this photo?

In the Capitol on Nov. 14, as CNN began to ask a question about the trip to Vienna, Nunes interjected and said, "I don't talk to you in this lifetime or the next lifetime."

"At any time," Nunes added. "On any question."

Asked again on Thursday about his travel to Vienna and his interactions with Shokin and Parnas, Nunes gave a similar response.

"To be perfectly clear, I don't acknowledge any questions from you in this lifetime or the next lifetime," Nunes said while leaving the impeachment hearing. "I don't acknowledge any question from you ever."

 

 

I think this is the most disturbing thing from that article.  The GOP is beginning to think that it should be completely unaccountable to the press or the public.  It started with Trump, but it's spreading thoughout the entire party.

It didnt start with Trump. Brainwashing the flock into believing that you can't trust media has been a decades long campaign. Unfortunately, the whole country is paying for it now.
