The Russia Investigations: 6 Key Insights From The Cyberspy Indictment

.... Robert Mueller unveiled his latest opus on Friday, one that gets to the heart of the Russian government's attack on the 2016 election: its theft and release of private information to publicly embarrass political targets. ...

The demonstration of this kind of eye-watering granularity makes it fascinating to imagine the kind of information the U.S. intelligence community asked Mueller to conceal from this indictment to protect its capabilities.

And to imagine what else Mueller might have up his sleeve."

JUST IN: The Special Counsel's Office notifies the court that they will seek immunity for up to 5 people to testify under conditions of immunity in the upcoming trial against Paul Manafort in Virginia. - @Tom_Winter

From the filing: “The motions indicate that the named individuals will not testify or provide other information on the basis of their privilege against self-incrimination, and that the government is requesting that the Court compel them to testify at the upcoming trial.”

The bottom line from the non-redacted part of the FISA application for Carter Page:

they attested that he was a Russian agent whose activities were part of a broad criminal plot to influence the election.

If this guy had nefarious intent upon the Trump campaign why is Donald Trump not thanking the FBI?  Why is he trying to shut down the investigation?  Isn't he the chief protector of the nation?

Trump's campaign to demonize Mueller's investigation echoes failed Watergate strategy used by Richard Nixon

How the effort to discredit special counsel Archibald Cox backfired in 1973.
 
With his back against the wall, Nixon seized on what has become a Trump trademark — attacking the media. ......

Similar tactics proved damaging to Nixon. In its final report, the House Judiciary Committee concluded that that Nixon’s efforts to undermine the special prosecutor’s investigation amounted to obstruction of justice as specified in Article I of the Articles of Impeachment.

Like Cox then and Mueller now, investigators are bound by strict grand jury secrecy precluding them from arguing their case in the public forum. But the investigation goes on — and the noose is tightening.

Hope Hicks boarding Air Force One. She resigned from her WH gig 1 day after she testified before the House Intelligence Committee regarding Russia. Over the course of 8 hours of testimony, Hicks acknowledged that she's told lies as a part of her job

*WITNESS TAMPERING IN 5 STEPS*

1. Trump knows Hicks is a witness in a federal case.

2. He's been told he mustn't speak to her.

3. His chief topic in public and private is the Russia probe.

4. Hicks is on a plane with Trump right now.

5. Trump is tampering with a federal witness.

:huh:

As Bogie56 said,  Hicks has already testified.    It can't be witness tampering unless she is called to testify again,  right?

It's witness tampering if you are aligning your fake stories.

But in this case wouldn't that mean that Hick's is the one doing the tampering?   I.e. she is the one that wishes to ensure Trump doesn't contradict what she has testified to if \ when Trump is asked questions by Mueller.

Anyhow,  at first I found it hard to believe Trump would so openly violate the law,  but after reflection,  it isn't so hard to believe!

If he's pumping a witness for information to help him with his story he is tampering.

BREAKING: FBI has fired veteran agent Peter Strzok, Strzok’s lawyer says in a statement to @CNBC, and alleges that "the decision to terminate was taken in response to political pressure."

Seth AbramsonVerified account @SethAbramson 5h5 hours ago

 
 

Yes: "ousted," strategically, for transparent political reasons having to do with protecting the president during future indictments and the possibility of impeachment proceedings.

Let's be very, *very* clear about that.

This is incredibly worrying, even scary stuff.

Mueller Is Examining Roger Stone’s Emails

Investigators are closing in on the longtime Trump adviser.

If we were all as sophisticated as Roger Stone is, we'd understand that

"I actually have communicated with Assange"

and "Prepare to die ****" *aren't* a confession of having communicated with Assange or a threat to a potential witness in the Mueller probe, respectively #wt

BREAKING: In new court filing, Special Counsel Mueller is recommending sentence of up to 6 months in prison for George Papadopoulos, the former Trump campaign aide who pleaded guilty to lying to FBI;

filing says Papadopoulos did not provide “substantial assistance."

Papadopoulos received $10k in cash from a foreign national whom he believed was an Intel officer, then kept that cash in a safe pending his sentencing, according to Mueller.

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

Seth AbramsonVerified account @SethAbramson 3h3 hours ago

 
 

Based on all we know, the chances the "other country besides Russia" Papadopoulos got money from was *Israel* is extremely high,

and there is a reasonable chance the money came from someone associated with WikiStrat, whose CEO met with Nader, Prince, and Trump Jr. in August 2016.

WikiStrat is an odd story, basically a bunch of Israeli intel guys up to no good in a big way... which is why they wanted to work for Trump (which would be an *election crime*) as they told Trump Jr. in August 2016.

Prince set up that meeting... part of his "no role," I guess.

:unsure:
