Do you agree with that video? I watched some of it and it was just Fox News propaganda the best I could tell.

I don't have cable and don't watch Fox News, so I can't say. He does give you all the information to verify and check yourself though.

This story isn’t about the Mueller Investigation but, it could end up there at some point.

The guy who runs the National Enquirer “Pecker” is a close friend of Trumps. He bought the Playboy Bunny’s story about being Trumps mistress and buried it for Trump. Pecker made a deal and has been cooperating with the FBI.

It’s no secret that Trump and Amazon’s CEO Bezos do not like each other. Apparently the Equirer launched an investigation into Bezos and found out he has a mistress. They somehow managed to hack him and aquired incriminating pictures of him and threatened to blackmail him. I guess Bezos was already going to get divorced and decided to risk embarrassment and go public with the story ahead of the Equirer and even launched their own investigation into AMI, the parent Co. of the Enquirer which really pissed off AMI. Nasty stuff.

Paul Manafort was just found guilty of violating his plea deal. A federal judge just ruled that he made multiple false statements to the FBI and deliberately lied about his contact with Russians during the 2016 Presidential campaign. The effect of the judge's decision is that Manafort is no longer looking at reduced sentencing for his crimes and might be sentenced to life in prison.

I’m not sure if it’s ever been posted here, but have you read some of the conversations Manafort’s kids have had with each other? Not only is he a traitor to the USA, but he’s an international war criminal.

Good God. Read this. Former FBI director Andrew McCabe describes in detail his interactions with President Trump after the firing of James Comey. He sounds like a total mob boss. These stories are frightening.

Andrew McCabe did a 60 Minutes interview. In it he claims that Trump openly declared he believed Putin over US intelligence about important matters such as NK military capability. He also claims that WH staffers and FBI personnel discussed whether they should try to invoke the 25th Amendment to remove him as well as wearing recording devices ("a wire") to capture some of his misbehavior on audio recording.

McCabe should be giving back all of the gofundme money he got when he was fired a few weeks before his pension kicked in. This book deal is plenty. A

I read some takes on excerpts from former FBI and CIA folks, and there are some strange things in there. Not lies, but things that McCabe should have already known, but he presents them as if they were new info.

I saw a tweet that I liked, that said something like, "It would be nice if even one of these brave patriots coming forward to defend the US didn't happen to have a tell-all book coming out that same week."

CNN and NBC are both reporting that AG Barr expects to receive Mueller's finished report next week. Hmmmmmmm. I want Mueller to conclude his investigation, no doubt. But this timing seems fishy to me. Trump just now gets his hand-picked AG appointed, and then immediately Mueller is wrapping up? I wonder whether Barr has ordered Mueller to stop the investigation behind closed doors. We'll see what comes of this.

I agree, the timing is odd.

It is odd, but there have been several people from his team leaving to head back to private practice/other jobs over the last few months. In addition, several items have been passed over to state AGs, and nearly everyone around Trump's campaign has either pled guilty, been found guilty, or is awaiting trial. There is no way Mueller would ever charge a sitting president, either. I think the only person left is probably Junior. So there isn't much left to do besides finalize the report.

I was waiting to see indictments for Don Jr and/or Kushner. They're both in this too deep to just walk away unscathed IMO.

Do you follow the news? Trump Tower meeting? They may not get indicted, but Jared and Don Jr were present at the meeting where the Trump campaign and Russia agreed to collude. They did something wrong.
