"Witch hunt!"

So many witches on BOTH sides the aisle!

I wonder, will this news influence Trump to deem Mueller's investigation as legitimate?

We need a Special Counsel, have a two year investigation, spend 40 million dollars and utilize thousands of man hours to get to the bottom of this! Oh, wait.

Which ends up practically revenue neutral with Manafort's asset seizure, but continue to ignore that little tid bit of fact for the "betterment" of your argument.

Spent $40 million? Pikers! Ken Starr spent $60 million to discover a BJ. And back then a million was a lot more money than it is today.

"Spent $40 million?"

sure, On Benhgazi. and not a single conviction came out of that

Mueller, more like 6 million, and 34 convictions/guilty pleas.

-Ken Starr spent $60 million to discover a BJ.

everyone just laughs at that one. We all know he discovered more than that. perjury and obstruction of justice......

why do you bring it up? Bill Clinton would just prefer you STFU about it already....

Bill isn't here. You however seem real eager we STFU about the 60 million spent by "conservatives" with no appreciable dividend for the tax payer

Perjury and obstruction of justice?

Well that was worth $60 million.

Thank God Eberly came along to correct Danni.

How much did Republicans spend on investigating Benghazi? I'm sure that was worth it too

Meanwhile Gracie is gushing blood out of her orifices because Mueller is investigating the man she wants grabbing her old stank p***y.

No asset forfeiture associated with that to boot! So $60 million to bring on an impeachment that resulted in not guilty and a Dem reelection at the foot of perceived Republican over-reach.

At least with Manafort, there was something like $28 million seized into the government slush-fund coffers.

You would think so. My view is he's too well-connected. I'll believe he'll be indicted once McCabe is indicted.

Look at all of the lefty deflections to Ken Starr.

At least JPW sacked up and stated the obvious.

True dat on both counts. I'd also add Weber to the "has to be next" list.

"You would think so. My view is he's too well-connected."

We'll see:

DOJ has been signaling for months its plan to pursue more foreign lobbying investigations under a new team led by Brandon Van Grack, a former Mueller prosecutor who worked on the special counsel's case against Manafort that netted a 7½-year prison sentence for the globetrotting GOP consultant.

Sounds like Weber is on you "must have" list. :)

No one is above the law. Not Greg Craig, not Michael Cohen, not Michael Flynn, no one. Lying to federal investigators is a big deal and strikes at the core of our ability to investigate crimes.

My Spirit is 15 years old and up until 6 or 7 years ago it got a ton of use. On the rare occasion I use it these days I'm still impressed with how well it cooks.

Depends on the bullets, but they pretty solid. Did one burner change, one "flavour bar" change, and did grill grates kit a couple years ago.

I use it now to final sear stuff I take off the Egg or for a quick after work burger...

I had to replace the cooking grates on mine and the "flavor bars" should be replaced. That's the beauty though. Weber products are so omnipresent and ubiquitous that replacing degradable parts is both easy and affordable.

A kamado, like The Egg is a great call in that frozen tundra where you live.

And Kellyanne Conway immediately gloated in a tweet, over a picture of President Obama, that the Mueller investigation had "FINALLY! WHITE HOUSE OFFICIAL INDICTED". Of course, she failed to mention that Michael Flynn, a Trump White House official, had already been indicted and was on the verge of being sentenced for something he did WHILE working IN the Trump White House. Also left-out was that Mr. Craig had been OUT of the Obama White House for TWO YEARS when he broke the law and it was while he was working for Paul Manafort and his Russian/Ukrainian buddies.

Ms. Conway has been appropriately schooled by the tweeterworld as to the shortcomings of her post:

Like two people got indicted under FARA for the whole history of it up until Mueller and now it's a big deal. Then you get asked about lobbying efforts, misremember something and an indictment comes down. The sweet land of liberty is really the not-so-sweet land of prosecution.
