THE RUSSIAN INVESTIGATION

Manafort

It’s not the sentence I think he deserved, but it’s better than he got last week in EDVA.  The first sentence is 60 months served concurrently with his 47 months from EDVA.  The second is 13 months, and will be served consecutively with the 60.  For a total of 73 months.  Subtract 9 months for time served and he’s looking at 64 months.  Considering the most that good behavior can knock off in Federal prison is about 54 days per year, that’s about 56 months to 64, or about 5 years.

And just when Paulie Walnut’s day started to look like it might turn around…

New York’s In Da HOUUSSEEE!!!!  The State of New York charged Paul Manafort 3 counts of Residential Mortgage Fraud in the First Degree, Attempted Mortgage Fraud in the First Degree, 3 counts of Conspiracy in the Fourth Degree, 8 counts of Falsifying Business Records in the First Degree, and 1 count of Scheme to Defraud in the First Degree.

16 felony counts.  Damn.  This was minutes after Manafort was sentenced and his lawyers begged for a pardon.

Remember, state charges cannot be eliminated with a pardon from the President.

COHEN, NEW YORK, AND THE OTHER LAWSUITS

Michael Cohen has testified that President Trump directed him to lie to Congress about Trump’s business dealings with Russia during the campaign. The weakness of the accusation is that Cohen does not seem to have any proof, other than his own testimony, that the conversation took place. But now CNN reports that Cohen has evidence of Trump obstructing justice by dangling a pardon. And this time he has receipts.

Robert Costello, an attorney working with Rudy Giuliani, emailed Cohen on April 21.  The emails assured Cohen he could “sleep well tonight” because he had “friends in high places,” according to CNN.

This is a really, really big deal. The power to pardon convicted criminals for federal crimes is a legitimate use of presidential authority. Whether it’s legitimate for the president to use this power to pardon criminals who committed crimes on his behalf, or might have otherwise testified against him, is a subject of intense debate.

HAHAHAHAHAHA!  Cohen has an email from Rudy’s lawyer dangling a pardon just weeks after his shit got raided by the FBI.  This corroborates what we talked about last week. (Daily Check-In 03/06/2019)

Impeachment Prepping

Daily Check-In 03/11/2019 and Daily Check-In 03/12/2019 talked about how Nancy Pelosi is trying to dissuade talk of impeachment for political reasons.  Trump’s hoping that he can take the narrative on this and paint it as a partisan attack.  This is his only move, he has to force it to happen.  If he waits until there’s evidence, he’s toast.  His only option is to stoke talk of impeachment as a political process and not a responsibility of safeguarding the republic.

RUMOR MILL

 

That’s it for Wednesday.  Looks like Beto’s throwing his hat in the ring.  I’m going to make an article describing everyone that is running, rumored to run, should run, and why Tulsi Gabbard shouldn’t be allowed anywhere near the nomination for President.

I’m going to update The Indicted with Paul Manafort’s info.

 

Thank you, and have a good one.
