Former Trump adviser, the first charged in Mueller probe, asks judge to spare him jail time
In a court filing, lawyers for George Papadopoulos said that in March 2016, when he raised the idea of a meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin, Donald Trump “nodded with approval and deferred to” then-Sen. Jeff Sessions.

The Hummingbird ? @SaysHummingbird Sep 10

 

Remember, Trump still believes he is above the law.

Trump’s casino allegedly broke anti money laundering laws 106 times. You read that correctly. 106 times.

Send him a clear message that @realDonaldTrump is NOT & NEVER will be above the law!

--------------------------------------------------

Trump's casino was a money laundering concern shortly after it opened

Last month Michael Cohen's attorney Lanny Davis told @maddow his client was happy to tell the special counsel "all that he knows."

In a new report by Vanity Fair, Michael Cohen, President Trump's former lawyer, has been in contact with Mueller's team.

It is, on it is own, stunning that WH says that the fact that men Trump picked as he his campaign chairman, his campaign deputy, his national security advisor, and his personal attorney (among others) have been found guilty of major crimes has nothing to do with the president.

 And you're known by The Company You Keep.

Donald Trump Played Central Role in Hush Payoffs to Stormy Daniels and Karen McDougal

Federal prosecutors have gathered evidence of president’s participation in transactions that violated campaign-finance laws

.......the accounts refute a two-year pattern of denials by Mr. Trump, his legal team and his advisers that he was involved in payoffs to Ms. McDougal and a former adult-film star. They also raise the possibility that the president of the United States violated federal campaign-finance laws.

The Wall Street Journal found that Mr. Trump was involved in or briefed on nearly every step of the agreements. He directed deals in phone calls and meetings with his self-described fixer, Michael Cohen, and others. The U.S. attorney’s office in Manhattan has gathered evidence of Mr. Trump’s participation in the transactions....

Cohen and **** began seeking to minimize their exposure. Mr. ****, granted immunity for his grand jury testimony, told investigators about Mr. Trump’s involvement in the McDougal deal.

Three years after Mr. **** promised to work with Mr. Cohen to help Mr. Trump, the deals they made have unraveled. Ms. McDougal and Ms. Clifford have both been let out of their hush agreements after filing lawsuits.

The three men no longer speak to one another."

An Open-and-Shut Violation of Campaign-Finance Law

The relevant law is favorable to candidates.

But it appears Trump still managed to violate it.

".....The deal that Trump reached and executed with AMI violates federal campaign-finance laws. AMI made an illegal corporate in-kind contribution to the Trump campaign, and the campaign and Trump share in the liability by accepting this illegal support. As open-and-shut cases go, this one is high on the list. But this is only part of what makes this a remarkable episode in the history of presidential-campaign lawbreaking.

 
 

For a candidate to break corporate-spending rules in a matter like this, involving friendly media organizations and embarrassing details about his personal life, is no mean feat.......

... AMI has apparently concluded that it has no legal defense, because **** and his company have been actively cooperating with the government under an immunity agreement. ....

The AMI episode has some bearing in one other respect on what we might understand about Trump’s personal complicity in yet another legal problem for the president: the Russian electoral intervention in 2016 ...

(THREAD) Pre-election Russia collusion may take down Trump.

It's equally possible the Trumps' pre- and post-election collusion with Saudi Arabia, the UAE, and Israel will do it

—a course of collusion also connected to the Kremlin. I explain here. ......

When Adam Schiff takes over the chair of the Congress Intel Committee not only will he be able to reopen the Russian investigation with subpoena power but he will also be able to investigate the obstruction of justice by one Devon Nunes.

The Intel Committee can do a better, and more complete investigation then the Mueller team?

Mueller has subpoena powers (at least for now).

Not better than Mueller but the chair can decide what to make public.

The indictments from Mueller's investigation will be public and that is what I'm interested in.

Hopefully Whittaker will not block said indictments.  They do have to go through the DOJ unless he has already done that and they are sealed.

Yes, what Whitaker MAY do or NOT do,  is concerning but I don't see how he can try to block things since all eyes are on him.    Granted it is 99% likely that Trump appointed him for those reasons and even discussed this with him,  but he know if he 'pulls the trigger' and impends the investigation and subsequent indictments,  this will lead to the House impeaching the President.   (Whitaker also knows that Trump will throw him to the wolfs IF it serves his purposes).

Also,  after the election rebuttal of all-thing-Trump,   I don't see the GOP Senate supporting such a thing.  Yea,  Mitch has stuck with Trump so far,  but if Trump and Whitaker go too far,  I can see that changing like it did with Nixon.     I.e. I just don't see GOP Senators being loyal to Trump if they know that it will cost them their Senate seat.

I still would like to see Schiff dig up the obstruction dirt on Nunes and hand it over to Mueller.

Ah,  that would be nice and something the I assume not part of the Mueller investigation (since it falls way outside of that).   Nunes needs to be slapped down hard.
