It’s time to sit back, make some popcorn and watch Trump perform what I’ve noted as the D.O.N.A.L.D system. Which is like the D.E.N.N.I.S system but more rapey.

– **D**emonize the media
– **O**nly hire the best^tm people
– **N**ever admit fault
– **A**lways provide an alternative theory (no matter how stupid or convoluted)
– **L**ie with impunity
– **D**eny everything negative

>”The criminal justice interest being vindicated here is there’s a large-scale ongoing investigation of which this case is a small part,” Aaron Zelinsky of the special counsel’s office said during Papadopoulos’ October 5 plea agreement hearing

Can you say NO COLLUSION? Because seems like the special counsels office is signaling that shit is going to get real.

This kid is going to avoid jail time, probably profit off of this somehow when it is all said and done, and be able to pick up and live the rest of his life somewhere (probably not in D.C. or politics). Signing that deal will be the smartest move of his life.

Robert Mueller was in charge of the FBI’s Enron task force. Here are some highlights from that timeline.

**Jan. 9, 2002** – Justice Department confirms it has begun a criminal investigation of Enron.

**March 14, 2002** – Former Enron auditor Arthur Andersen LLP indicted for destroying Enron-related documents to thwart investigators.

**May 1, 2003** – Enron CFO Andrew Fastow’s wife, Lea, and seven former Enron executives charged.

**Feb. 19, 2004** – Named in 35-count indictment, *Former* Enron CEO Jeffrey Skilling pleads not guilty to wire fraud, securities fraud, conspiracy, insider trading and making false statements on financial reports.

**July 8, 2004** – Indicted on 11 criminal counts of fraud and making misleading statements, Enron’s highest-ranking executive, Ken Lay, surrenders to the FBI.

A *small* sample of the indictment timeline for one case involving one company. This is going to be huge. There will be regular indictments for years. We’re not going to be able to breathe a sigh of relief until well after the 2020 elections.

But until then, we’re going to have a very wild, very entertaining story to follow.

They are all going to die in prison.

>”Although the government is moving expeditiously to interview individuals of immediate interest to the investigation, news that the defendant has been charged with and pleaded guilty to lying to federal agents may make those individuals reluctant to speak with investigators,” the special counsel’s office wrote on October 3.

Keep it up, guys. You’re doing a heckuva job.

>”Although the government is moving expeditiously to interview individuals of immediate interest to the investigation, news that the defendant has been charged with and pleaded guilty to lying to federal agents may make those individuals reluctant to speak with investigators,” the special counsel’s office wrote on October 3.

>”Revealing the defendant’s plea would likely chill individuals to be interviewed in the coming weeks,” the filing added.

Interestingly, the timing dovetails with the SCO’s success in knocking down attorney-client privilege to gain access to Manafort’s lawyer.

Today was Andrew Weissmann’s day of showing off. Don’t forget that Mueller hired more prosecutors than Mr. Weissmann.

BLMdidHarambe · October 31, 2017 at 6:38 pm

Have you all been to the dark side today? I don’t check in there often but today it seems crazier than ever before. They’re all over the place. Blaming the FBI of blackmailing Trump with Manafort, saying Podesta is in round two of indictments, calling for Hillary and Obama (“the formers of Isis”) to be jailed, saying that Mueller failed because he’s only indicted people on finance charges, etc. The list goes on and on. These people live in a state of absolute delusion. I’ve always known some people in this world were unhinged, but to see these insane posts with thousands and thousands of upvotes is just sad.

Having trouble with chronic Trumpism and Russian collusion? Ask your doctor if Muellera may be right for you. Muellera is the only Congressionally-approved special investigator that has been shown to bring justice to Trumpism. Do not take Muellera if you suffer from Foxnewsia or Breitbartia as this may cause cognitive dissonance or spontaneous combustion. Side effects of Muellera may include optimism for democracy, genuine patriotism, and “Justice Boner”. Call your representative or Senator if Muellera causes you to experience a justice boner for more than 4 hours as this may be a sign that you actually give a shit about the democratic institutions and laws of the United States. Be aware that you or those around you may experience a strong reaction to Muellera, as it has been shown to increase the effects of Republican guilt, shame, and paranoia. Ask your Deputy Attorney General about a free trial of Muellera, and remember… it’s never too late to “Make America Great Again.”

It is also a ‘small part’ of my ‘large scale’ erection.

Well there goes any chance of this one lasting less than four hours. Any doctors on hand?

>THE COURT: The other issue I wanted to bring up is I’m
sensitive to the fact that there are First Amendment
considerations with respect to this proceeding. As
indicated in my order, I was persuaded that there was
compelling reason to proceed today under seal, to have these
proceedings under seal and to have them remain under seal so
as not to interfere with an ongoing investigation.
Going forward though, I want to make sure that
that process doesn’t take any longer than necessary and that
the public does have access to these proceedings as soon as
it can consistent with not undermining an ongoing
investigation.
So Mr. Goldstein, I don’t know if you want to
speak to that. I think my order, as was proposed by your
office, provides for I think a status check-in, just filing
in 30 days to let me know what the status is. If I can just
ask you to maybe indicate for me what you anticipate by when
this may be made public and what the process would be for
doing that.

>MR. GOLDSTEIN: We put 30 days in the proposed
order, your Honor, because we too are sensitive and
understand the First Amendment concerns that are at issue.
There are, as we put in the motion, certain aspects of the
ongoing investigation that we believe and we submitted to
the Court at this time give reason for sealing. When those
reasons don’t exist anymore — and we believe that it will
be in the near term, that we will immediately alert the
Court and ask for the proceedings to be unsealed.
If it is before 30 days, then we will alert the
Court at that time. If it goes beyond 30 days on the time
period as set forth in the order, we will come back and
explain to the Court why continued sealing is necessary.

>THE COURT: Okay. Anything from the defense on
that issue?

>MR. BREEN: No, your Honor. We have not objected
to this at all. There is a benefit I feel to our client.
And I certainly understand the Special Prosecutor’s position
on this matter considering the very expansive investigation
that’s going forward.

>THE COURT: Okay, so we’ll leave it that way.
I’ll expect a report in 30 days. If there’s a need to
revisit the issue at that point, we can do so then.
Anything further from the Government today?

>MR. GOLDSTEIN: No, your Honor. Thank you.

Interesting.

This is where GOPers who *weren’t* in the Trump campaign feel their sphincters pucker.

I have a feeling more of the swamp is going to get drained than Trump counted on.

A friendly reminder that the ‘large scale investigation’ is the entire GOP… including Speaker of the House Paul Ryan, Congressman and former House majority leader Kevin McCarthy (CA), and Congressman Dana Rohrabacher.

Ryan and McCarthy knew Trump was tied to Putin as early as June 15, 2016 and instructed other Republicans in their conservation, “No leaks. . . . This is how we know we’re a real family here.”

This is one VERY large nothing-burger that will, it seems, choke to death multiple people.

Glad my name is not Trump, Flynn, Manafort, etc.

thedome26 · October 31, 2017 at 6:38 pm

My word. The Papadopoulos component was the biggest news of the day before this, and this just makes it absolutely colossal. What are popcorn futures trading at the moment?

THSSFC · October 31, 2017 at 6:38 pm

This ties into the RNC in a few ways:

One: Paul Ryan’s [keep it in the family] (https://www.newyorker.com/news/news-desk/paul-ryan-keeps-it-family-kevin-mccarthy-russia-trump) quote:

>“There’s two people I think Putin pays: Rohrabacher and Trump,” McCarthy said, according to Entous, a superb reporter who heard a tape recording of the colloquy. “Swear to God.”…[snip]

>In the Post piece, McCarthy’s remark is met with laughter, and Ryan cautions his colleagues, “This is an off the record . . . No leaks! . . . All right?”

>And then, amid more laughter, Ryan says, “This is how we know we’re a real family here.”

>“That’s how you know that we’re tight,” Steve Scalise, the House Majority Whip, says.

>“What’s said in the family stays in the family,” Ryan concludes.

Then, the [$70,000 payment by the RNC to the Manafort shell company] (http://www.mcclatchydc.com/news/nation-world/national/article181706066.html) for Trump campaign work

And [Manafort’s notes] (https://www.nbcnews.com/news/us-news/manafort-notes-russian-meet-contain-cryptic-reference-donations-n797816) suggesting the RNC benefitting from Russian donors

> Manafort’s notes, typed on a smart phone and described by one source briefed on the matter as cryptic, were turned over to the House and Senate intelligence committees and to Special Counsel Robert Mueller. They contained a reference to political contributions and “RNC” in close proximity, the sources said.

>NBC News initially reported that the notes contained the word “donation,” but a spokesman for Sen. Charles Grassley, R-Iowa — the chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, whose staff has reviewed the notes — disputed that the word “donation” appears. The two sources who initially provided the information then said that the word was not “donation.” One said it was “donor,” and another said it was a word that referenced political contributions, but that source declined to be more specific.

George apparently reported to Jeff Sessions. Sessions denied to Al Franken and other federal officials about having any meetings with Russians. George arranged meetings with Russians.

The math doesn’t look good for Jeff Sessions.

The same could be said for Priebus and the RNC and any GOP candidate that got help from Priebus and the RNC.
