THE RUSSIAN INVESTIGATION

It’s about time.  Journalist Hater of democracy around the world Julian Assange was evicted from the Ecuadorian Embassy in Britain on Thursday, and immediately arrested by British police at the request of the Americans.  Assange faces up to a year in jail for skipping bail when he fled rape charges in Sweden and hid out in the embassy.  Though, in hindsight, his plan was to eventually reach Russia.

Assange was charged with attempting to access DoD computers in a criminal conspiracy with Chelsea Manning (then Bradley Manning).  He’s facing 5 years in prison for this crime.

These charges do not include any of his actions from the 2016 election.  Rumor has it that those are under seal until he can be certain of being tried without a risk of pardon or other commutation.

Gregory Craig was indicted for not registering as a foreign lobbyist under FARA for his work with Ukraine and Paul Manafort starting in 2012.

 

 

 

CONGRESS

Nadler seems like he’s going to give Barr just enough rope to hang himself.  By my calculations, he only needs another three or four inches.

 

Here’s the part that slipped through the cracks in Trump’s defenses.  They could try to do an end-run by having Mnuchin try to block the release from the IRS, which is illegal, but anyone else who handled Trump’s taxes is also fair game.  Further, the only way they could fight this would be with a lengthy court battle that would cost hundreds of thousands of dollars, and would likely end right back with a court order releasing the tax returns anyway.  Who’s going to pay the legal bills for this fight?  Certainly won’t be Trump.

CRIME AND PUNISHMENT

Avenatti Charged

Just when the timeline couldn’t get any more screwed up, Michael Avenatti is accused of extorting Nike and taking money from a crippled person.  What’s this world coming to when a dickhead lawyer who rose to fame going after the President’s personal lawyer and who was evicted from his law office and attacked a bunch of people telling him it’s a bad idea to run for POTUS can’t be trusted?

That’s it for the last few days.  Things are still crazy in my personal life, and it might take me a few days or weeks to get back to normal.

I’m going to add Assange, Craig, and Avenatti to The Indicted.

 

Thank you, and have a good one.
