Friday, July 27th and the weekend

 

THE RUSSIAN INVESTIGATION

As I mentioned in Daily Check-In 07/26/2018, Trump knew and the evidence is mounting for the public to see.  Part of this is the roll-up to the meeting.

On June 7, 2016, Trump had a big press conference where he said he’d have something big to say about Hilary in a couple days.  When does Cohen say that Trump approved the meeting with the Russians?

June 7, 2016.  Shortly before his press conference, if the reports are accurate.

So, we have a meeting with Trump, Cohen, and between 3-5 other people on June 7th to approve and prepare for this meeting with Veselnitskaya and the rest of the Russian team.

Who were the people in the prep meeting?  We know that Jared Kushner, Paul Manafort, and Donnie Jr. were in the official meeting.  If, and this is a big if, if all three of them were at the June 7th meeting, leaves Cohen and one other.  Personally, I doubt that Jared was at the prep meeting, since he wasn’t mailed about it until the next day.  It’s more likely that someone at the meeting said that they should include Jared, as he’s the least of a fuckup out of all the males in the family.  That leaves two spaces open for the meeting.  My guess is that the following attended the prep meeting:

  1. Donald Trump
  2. Donald Trump, Jr.
  3. Paul Manafort
  4. Michael Cohen
  5. Trump’s secretary Rhona
  6. Rick Gates

Rick Gates.  As in, Cooperating Witnesses Rick Gates.  Why him?  He was Paul Manafort’s right hand man in the campaign, and was deeply involved in all of the minutia.  Paul and Rick were likely pulled into this at Trump’s behest as well.  As long as either Paul or Rick were there, Mueller has had the notes from this meeting for a long time.  With Cohen, we have two eyewitnesses to Conspiracy Against the United States, and a slew of other crimes.

The fallout continues with Rudy committing witness tampering.

The title is misleading.  Kimberly wasn’t the victim, she was a perpetrator.  One of her “hobbies” was sharing dick pics around the office and telling people who they belonged to.  Not who sent her the pics, but whose dicks they were.

That’s it for the weekend.  Things are coming along and picking up speed.  Manafort’s trial begins on Tuesday, and is expected to last 2-3 weeks. Expect a ton of rage tweeting and crazy attacks in the next couple weeks.

Meanwhile, the other threads are all weaving together like a tapestry.  I try to keep things separated for convenience sake, but the closer we get to the endgame, the more the random threads tie together.  Certain players were involved in multiple parts, like Michael Cohen.  Not only was he deeply involved in all of the dealings with women, he was also privy to the Russian meetings in June.  We can make an easy jump from one crazy part of this saga (Seychelles meeting with Erik Prince) to another random part (Maria Butina) in only a couple small steps.  It’s like a corrupt version of Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon.

Let’s see who the next player is, and how they can connect Mark Burnett to David Pecker in less than four moves.

 

Thank you, and have a good one.
