Tangled web connects Russian oligarch money to GOP campaigns-

 

 

"Donald Trump and the political action committees for Mitch McConnell, Marco Rubio, Scott Walker, Lindsey Graham, John Kasich and John McCain accepted $7.35 million in contributions from a Ukrainian-born oligarch who is the business partner of two of Russian president Vladimir Putin's favorite oligarchs and a Russian government bank....

 

Blavatnik's relationships with Russian oligarchs close to Putin, particularly Oleg Deripaska, should be worrisome for Trump and the six GOP leaders who took Blavatnik's money during the 2016 presidential campaign. Lucky for them no one has noticed. Yet......

Special Prosecutor Mueller Impanels a Grand Jury in the Russia Probe.

 

Source--CNN, which credited the Wall Street Journal.

 

The process continues--this means Mueller has found evidence of a crime(s).

Looks like daddy-o Trump concocted the Donny Jr. malarky about the meeting with the Russians being about adoptions.  More obstruction and lies.

Republican National Committee Just Ordered Its Staff To Secure Russia Hacking Evidence-

 

 

"...the RNC has told its staff to preserve any documents related to the 2016 campaign. 

 

“Given the important role that the RNC plays in national elections and the potentially expansive scope of the inquiries and investigations, it is possible that we will be contacted with requests for information. Therefore, we must preserve all documents potentially relevant to these matters until they are resolved or until we are informed by all necessary parties that preservation is no longer necessary,” reads an RNC memo....

 

...the RNC went on to add that their primary concern is possible hacking attempts against themselves, there is little reason to believe that it’s what the evidence will actually indicate. The memo also seems to indicate an increased willingness on the part of the Republican Party to put distance between itself and the self-destructive president....

Senator McCain helped defeat a truly awful bill. He also prefers presidents who weren't captured by the Russians.

Republicans want to compare President Obama getting involved in the 2016 election to Vladimir Putin's stealth campaign to undermine our democracy.

Rep. Steve Cohen (D-TN) is having none of it.

 

 

"...Russia and Putin have no right getting involved in our elections, never have, this should be bipartisan, and we should be together on this. Instead, we are divided, and we’re bringing up issues from the past election. We need to get answers. America does not need to have Moscow give its imprimatur to actions.

 

There is something afoul in the White House when the President of the United States goes up to Putin and says, I’m honored to meet you.

The mayor of Chicago never went up to Al Capone and said, “I’m honored to meet you.” It’s in essence the same thing......."

“Bob Mueller is a Republican who was appointed by a Republican. I don’t think many people are saying that Mueller is a biased partisan…he really is anything but.”

While the president has called Mueller’s investigation a “witch hunt,” Paul Ryan said a special counsel “depoliticizes this stuff,” and “gets it out of the political theater.”

Will Trump sign it?

Trump's would-be "protectors" vote against Trump's promise to, er., protection from the Russians. He talks about him carrying some of them over the finish line.... Putin carried him over the finish line.

Trump willingly accepts dirty money from the Russians as it helps him out of financial peril.  Naturally it is in his interest to repeal U.S. sanctions freezing dirty money.  He's involved up to his eyeballs with these mobsters.   Naturally the Russians would like to see this too.  Therefore they would like Trump to win the election so he can see that it happens.

Very simple.

That sounds familiar, O yea it's like how the Government runs.

"Follow the Money!" Explains intent and motive in one neat package.

I hope they do follow the money. I remember saying that all last year when it came to Hillary and Bill. When it comes to the election it will be interesting to see how corrupt the Trumps were compared to the Democratic party. That's if the investigators turn over every rock.

This is what I was referring to when I said " he may be the defendant soon but he also wants to be the Judge, that way he can pardon himself."
 
 

This looks like what happened to Bill Clinton when he got impeached, you start an investigation and something else becomes the crime. I can see where a case is developing for money laundering but what many Trump haters want is to tie them together to show collusion with the Russians to win the election, and that is taking center stage in the political and media pursuits.
