The Mueller Russia Investigation: A Full Docket Of Developments Set For Friday

Friday is shaping up as a busy day in the Justice Department's Russia investigation. Special counsel Robert Mueller faces deadlines in two federal courts in cases involving two former Trump insiders, a former FBI director treks up to Capitol Hill for a closed-door interview, and a onetime Trump campaign adviser gets out of prison.

Here's a quick breakdown of what's on tap for the day:

"But last week, the special counsel's office said that Manafort had repeatedly lied to prosecutors since agreeing to cooperate, which it says violated his plea deal. Mueller's team did not provide any details on how Manafort may have breached the agreement or what he allegedly lied about.

That information is expected to be made public Friday, when Mueller's team is to submit to Judge Amy Berman Jackson a document detailing Manafort's alleged "crimes and lies," including those it says he committed after he signed his cooperation agreement."

What's this have to with anything, except your rabid hatred of anything you don't understand. Which seems to be a lot these days.

Who ever gave a damn about Monafort, except for straw graspers like you?

I notice "Trump" isn't in there. Seems like an investigation about Trump/EvilRussians/Collusion/Obstruction(?)/Can'tAccept2016Results should have his name in there, or it's really not much at all. Don't know how you judge what "winning" is, though. Way to bag that Monafort guy, though. Kinda like going hunting for Rhino and bagging a Corkupine.

Would be helpful if you would make sense when you post.

You're welcome.

"...that Monafort guy..."

You mean the guy who ran the Trump campaign?

That guy?

During the campaign, Cohen played a central role in two similar schemes to purchase the rights to stories – each from women who claimed to have had an affair with Individual-1 – so as to suppress the stories and thereby prevent them from influencing the election. With respect to both payments, Cohen acted with the intent to influence the 2016 presidential election. Cohen coordinated his actions with one or more members of the campaign, including through meetings and phone calls, about the fact, nature, and timing of the payments. In particular, and as Cohen himself has now admitted, with respect to both payments, he acted in coordination with and at the direction of Individual-1. As a result of Cohen's actions, neither woman spoke to the press prior to the election.
Oops.
