THE RUSSIAN INVESTIGATION

MANAFORT FLIPPED!!!!!!!!!!

Paul Manfort, Campaign Chairman for President Donald J. Trump’s election campaign in 2016, pleaded guilty to Witness Tampering Conspiracy and Conspiracy Against the United States in DC District Court.  In addition to this, he also agreed to plead guilty to the leftover charges from his EDVA case that resulted in a hung jury.  As part of this deal, Manafort agrees to cooperate completely with any and all investigations going forward.

Paul Manafort, the go-between for the Trump team and the Russian Mafia, lobbyist for the Party of Regions and Opposition Bloc in Ukraine, advocate for tyrants, criminals, and the most despicable humans of the late 20th and early 21st century, has turned state’s witness.

Paulie Walnuts has flipped on Trump.

This is big, possibly “Game Over” big.  Manafort was involved multiple aspects of the campaign, and directly ties Trump to the Russians.  Manafort was at the June 9th meeting, and also was supposedly at the pre-meeting a couple days earlier with Michael Cohen and Donnie Jr.  (Daily Check-In 07/26/2018). Manafort also organized the change in language at the RNC that softened their stance on Ukraine to favor Russia.

 

Penalties

Manafort’s not getting off with a slap on the wrist.  He’s forfeiting $46 million in assets and cash, including a life insurance policy and 4 homes.  One of those homes is his an apartment in Trump Tower.

The Federal Government now owns property in Trump Tower, and can do with it whatever the fuck they want.  Normally, they would sell this property in an auction, but I’m really hoping they do something else with it, like turn it into a soup kitchen or homeless shelter.  Maybe the John S. McCain III Memorial Veterans Affairs Office?

 

Co-Conspirators

It’s not just Trump who’s shitting bricks right now, but every lobbyist, banker, politician, criminal, tailor, judge, donor, and anyone else who’s ever done anything even slightly shady in the last 30 years is panicking.  Remember how Bob Dole joined the board of AUB? (Daily Check-In 08/28/2018) The playmakers who made that happen are the same people in this mess.

The first up on the shit list are the Hapsburg Group and Greg Craig.  They were specified directly in Manafort’s plea deal.  Craig was a former member of Obama’s White House Counsel’s Office in his first year.  I’m looking forward to the mental gymnastics that will take place to explain Manafort was framed into lying about this, but the Democrat was obviously guilty.

Documents

These are definitely worth a read.

 

Pardon

Before anyone says Trump will just pardon him out of this, I think the window’s closed on that option.  Not only was it a horribly bad idea to begin with (GTKYG-Pardon Limitations), but now the government has what they want from Manafort, and it likely has even more on Trump.

If Trump tried to pardon Manafort now, not only would it screw over Manafort it would obviously be a corrupt and criminal action meant to cover up crimes he’s connected to.

There’s a rumor about a delay that I’ll cover in the Rumor Mill section.

SCOTUS

On Thursday, Senate Democrats disclosed that they had referred a complaint regarding President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee, Judge Brett Kavanaugh, to the F.B.I. for investigation. The complaint came from a woman who accused Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct when they were both in high school, more than thirty years ago.

The woman, who has asked not to be identified, first approached Democratic lawmakers in July, shortly after Trump nominated Kavanaugh. The allegation dates back to the early nineteen-eighties, when Kavanaugh was a high-school student at Georgetown Preparatory School, in Bethesda, Maryland, and the woman attended a nearby high school. In the letter, the woman alleged that, during an encounter at a party, Kavanaugh held her down, and that he attempted to force himself on her. She claimed in the letter that Kavanaugh and a classmate of his, both of whom had been drinking, turned up music that was playing in the room to conceal the sound of her protests, and that Kavanaugh covered her mouth with his hand. She was able to free herself. Although the alleged incident took place decades ago and the three individuals involved were minors, the woman said that the memory had been a source of ongoing distress for her, and that she had sought psychological treatment as a result.

RUMOR MILL

 

That’s it for Friday.  This was one hell of a day.  Like I said earlier, there’s a rumor going around about a delay showing up at the courthouse.

According to some reports, Paul Manafort’s team and the Special Counselor’s team arrived at the courthouse earlier in the morning, around 9:00 to 9:30, but didn’t appear before Judge Berman until an hour an a half later, around 11:00AM.  While this delay isn’t completely unheard of, one rumor going around is that Manafort was led into the Grand Jury convened for the Russian Investigation and was asked some questions, specifically about the June 9 meeting and whether or not Trump knew about it ahead of time.  That way, in case Trump tried a pardon, they would already have Manafort’s information on record.

 

Thank you, and have a good one.
