Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Friday, November 30, 2018

After a quiet period, there was a potential blockbuster development in special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into possible coordination between Russia and the 2016 Trump campaign this morning, when the president's former lawyer, Michael Cohen, made a surprise appearance in a Manhattan courtroom to plead guilty to making false statements to Congress. ... According to Cohen's plea deal, he is cooperating with the special counsel investigation. This brings the total number of people charged in Mueller's investigation to 33.

Good grief. While running for POTUS, Donald Trump was in back channel negotiations with the Russian mob (aka Putin's Government, friendly oligarchs, and a US sanctioned-against bank) on a business deal in Moscow where Trump offered their President a free $50 million penthouse at the same time he repeatedly lied to this nation saying he had no investment in Russia whatsoever and myriad variations thereof.

At the same time, the Russian military and cyberwarfare personnel were carrying out a counterintelligence operation to impact the US presidential campaign toward the benefit of Trump.

Further, today Trump's former personal attorney and bagman plead guilty to the felony offense of lying to Congress directly related to a conspiracy involving Trump to mislead investigators away from the facts and actual timeline of contact and negotiations with Russians as it involved said licensing deal which would have personally enriched Trump tremendously.

Lastly, Trump's business dealing alone compromised the security of America because they have this damning information of Trump's repeated lies to his own citizens. Imagine how they can control him with everything else they've discovered over their years of work in cultivating ties with him, just like Christopher Steele's raw intelligence dossier documented about this affair damn near perfectly.

This is one of my favorite attacks on Mueller. If he actually indicted Trump, neo-confederates would be tripping over themselves regurgitating quasi-legal arguments against the indictment of a sitting president. Yet because Mueller hasn't done it, they attack his investigation as illegitimate. They will never support a single thing Mueller does. He is professional, bi-partisan and without reproach. Must make them squirm considering they've hitched themselves to such a slimeball.

here is what he's doing...

Confiscating all his intended victims emails/communications and documents, then making you testify about them....

Say something wrong/inconsistent about those documents ... indictment .. no wrong doing mind you, as stated above just "lying", not really, just not remember every little detail of every document/communication Mueller has confiscated.

With Flynn, Manafort, Cohen, Gates, etc all cutting deals, the only fish left is Trump and maybe his kids. And if Mueller went after them before turning over every stone, you'd probably criticize him for not being thorough.

Again, it's hiding in plain sight:

While the Trump Tower Moscow saga doesn't involve hacking or promises of "dirt" on Hillary Clinton, it does involve repeated efforts by Trump associates to get in touch and make deals with high-level Russian officials, including Putin himself -- efforts that apparently were reciprocated to some extent. If direct contacts between the Trump team and Russian officials or representatives have long been unclear, this latest activity may provide that missing piece of the puzzle.

There is one other reason to suspect that Trump Tower Moscow might be closely tied to the larger collusion investigation: The people working on this deal very clearly had the election on their minds. We don't just know this because Cohen admitted it in explaining why he lied to Congress. In November 2015, according to emails published in the New York Times, Sater wrote to Cohen, "Our boy can become president of the USA and we can engineer it. I will get all of Putins [sic] team to buy in on this, I will manage this process."

Here's the roadmap Jeff....

We can now see documentation and confessions that outline some of what has always seemed probable. During the campaign – for roughly the first year of the campaign! – Donald Trump was actively trying to strike business deals in Russia with the help of Vladimir Putin's government and working closely with members of the Russian intelligence services. Felix Sater was working with all these people. Trump's deal-maker and Russian money channel handler, Michael Cohen, literally reached out to Putin's press office and spoke to a member of the staff to enlist the Russian government's assistance. This was while Trump was already the clear frontrunner for the nomination.

As this was happening, Putin's intelligence services were stealing emails and documents from various arms of the Democratic party. They were mounting various information operations within the United States. As this was happening a bankrupt and desperate political fixer who'd been working for a Putin loyalist for a decade showed up wanting to work for the campaign for free. That's Paul Manafort, a longtime business partner of Roger Stone, another member of the conspiracy.

Did they work with Wikileaks? Yes, there was a back channel between Trump and Wikileaks murkily conducted through Roger Stone and Jerome Corsi and likely others – requests for help in one direction, information and assistance in the other.

For those slow on the uptake, Trump's real estate "deal" with Russia at that moment in time was a part of their counterintelligence operation at least as it was connected to Trump's nascent presidential campaign. All those seeming disparate contacts between Trumpers in and around the campaign and the Russians were not just incidental, they were full of various illegal/nefarious intentions on Russia's part even if the unlikely truth be the Trumpers were indeed unaware. It may be true that individual Trumpers may not have believed they were connected to Russia's interference because they didn't see what they were doing as interference, nor did they see the larger, multi-pronged, coordinated picture of all that Russia was doing simultaneously.

But those Trumpers tied to Cambridge Analytica and the Trump Tower servers knew exactly what they were doing. And it was treasonous.

There's been a run on Depends at the GOP commissary after Cohen plead guilty to lying to Congress. Remember that little subcommittee run by Devin Nunes that brought a whole bunch of Trump officials before it, taking secret testimony which led to a majority report concluding that there wasn't any connection between Trump's campaign and Russian interference? That report included testimonial statements and assertions which Cohen yesterday allocuted were indeed lies. Felony lies that undermine the conclusion of the GOPers on the committee leading others to go through the testimonial records with fine tooth combing. Records the Democrats will hand over to Mueller come January 3rd. Think there aren't a lot of worried Trumpers running around today wondering if their worlds will implode upon the New Year?

How many others are going to be tied to the ongoing conspiracy of keeping Trump's actual Russia business dealing attempts (including his Foreign Corrupt Act violating offer of a $50M penthouse directly expressed through Cohen to Putin's own bagman during negotiations) secret from the very people Trump and his allies repeatedly lied to, always maintaining there were "no business dealings with Russia... (We) have nothing to do with Russia"?

Somehow I don't think Mueller is going to go quietly into the night with all those who may have lied to Congress, even if their lying was to Trump sycophants and toadies masquerading as concerned GOP congressmembers. Wonder if Nunes might face obstruction charges if it's ever proven he knew that specific testimony was false and didn't do his constitutional duty to reveal it?

Not Congress Danni, Mueller. Michael Cohen was charged with felony lying to Congress by Mueller. He can indict anyone and everyone that may have offered false testimony to investigators or in congressional committees that obstructed the search for the truth of what actually happened.

Everyone is exposed to prosecution if Mueller has evidence that they knowingly lied or withheld the truth individually or as part of a conspiracy.

You voted for a liar and traitor. You don't get to whine that the news cycle is clogged with stories about his lies and treason.

Frightening how so many Americans don't realize the gravity of this situation. We are overall a dumbed-down country.

People too stupid to see that trump is a con man are obviously going to be too stupid to understand why him committing treason is a big deal.

As far as this site is concerned there probably only one or two people too stupid to see it. The rest don't GAF because he's otherwise giving them what they want.

I supposed he didn't want to have to face all his "Bookmark it" predictions about the bloodbath/humiliating defeat the Democrats were supposed to face on November 6th.

Highly frowned upon. Especially with hostile powers who are actually attacking your country at the same time.

Be brave. Chin up. We are not going to throw you out with Diaper Baby in Jan.
