    Trump and all his family, cronies, and sycophants are not going to sleep much this weekend, wondering which one of them will be indicted and for what.

    Plans were prepared Friday for anyone charged to be taken into custody as soon as Monday.

        Unless it's an indictment of Fusion GPS individuals or Clinton campaign staff who did collusion with Russia, Mueller needs to be fired!

          Neither Mueller nor Comey are  capable of anything by partisan and political maneuvering  ,     mostly for the benefit of democratic pandering and self-serving means .

            Riddle me this Batman;
            Aug. 2, Russian Sanctions signed by tRump after overwhelming been passed by Congress has been eviscerated by the State Dept. closing of the Coordinator for Sanctions Policy office, which led to non-enforcement of the law to produce the list of Russian entities by Oct.1

            The Coordinator for Sanctions Policy office, which had been led by a veteran ambassador-rank diplomat with at least a staff of five, is now to be handled by one mid-level official — David Tessler.

            What does that tell you?

            What do you make of these developments?

            Do you think perhaps there will be continuing Russian Sanctions foot-dragging by the tRump Admin in the future?

            Why is the tRump Admin reluctant to impose any sanctions on Russia?

              "Why is the tRump Admin reluctant to impose any sanctions on Russia?"

              LOL  Probably because Russia has far more dirt, of the same type, on the US.  A sanction war isn't going to do anybody any good.

                'Probably' = speculation without any basis

                reluctance to impose Russian Sanctions = speculation basis on reality facts.

                  Sorry.  But if you wanted an absolute answer rather than an opinion or possibility you'll have to go to the horses mouth and ask that admin.  And then believe what you're told, which might be a tad difficult.

                    After the president spent the 96th day of his presidency visiting one of his own properties in the last 10 months, a woman cyclist, successfully gave the president the middle finger at  POTUS car when stopped at a traffic light.

      This is certainly liberal payback. Well-known liberal Trey Gowdy has insisted that Mueller's credentials are unimpeachable. You can't get any worse than that.

      And conspiracy against the United States isn't really so bad. Who cares?

        You might also remember that Mueller was appointed by the Trump administration - Rod Rosenstein, the Assistant Attorney General, who did so after Jeff Sessions recused himself.

        The biggest problem that  Clinton supporters  have   and will never admit to IS that all the Clinton / Russian connections are and have been right in front of you in black and white in the  media and in their  political pasts as well . Fact . Look them up yourselves.

        Interesting that the Clinton owned  liberal media  is now throwing her under the bus.

        This dossier provided by Russian nationalists and leaked  ,lock ,stock and barrel by the incredibly liberal media cannot be denied now  either  .It in itself is very telling ,     While the media , Clinton , and all her supporters are still in total meltdown about her election loss ,  the truths about the liberals bias of the  Mueller and Comey "investigations has Also been in the media for the last year .

        Why do liberals try to re-write history from day to day ?
        You cannot invent fact day to day and then deny them all tomorrow.

              Sorry, but this was years ago, ROTFL

          George Papadopoulos, the 30-year-old foreign policy adviser, was arrested in July and pleaded guilty earlier, he lied abouton numerous occasions, about when he tried to negotiate a meeting with either Trump or campaign officials and "members of President Putin's office" as well as the Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs,

          Gates, 45, and Manafort, 68, are accused of conspiracy, money laundering, failing to register as foreign agents and making false statements to investigators — even while they worked for Trump's presidential campaign.

          Sorry, but this is years ago, before Paul Manafort was part of the Trump campaign. But why aren't Crooked Hillary & the Dems the focus?????

      The sad part is that liberal ideology of last twenty  years  , Obama / Holder /Clinton have so corrupted the entire justice system  as to render any scene or outcome  like the above picture useless and  Any outcome of the investigation going on now as pointless .

      Who would believe anything that the Mueller "investigation " DOES reveal  ?
      Who would believe anything Comey revealed  ?   
      Who has ANY faith in the DOJ to begin with ?
      Who believes the Clinton's didn't both leave their DNA on Putin?

      I actually hope that Trump did meet with the Russians and it's revealed , because it's ramifications  can't equal  the present mindless political obstruction going on in our culture, our media  and our political climate .

          but NOTHING related to President Trump - this has gotta be the most expensive indictment in US History, and for what?  Sore losers on the other side create a false narrative, push it through to the mainstream through the media, create all sorts of "what if's" and hope something would stick....well nothing stuck and the Democrats look even more petty and vindictive.

          Comey was a Republican. Most law enforcement people tend to be Republicans. It wouldn't surprise me if Mueller is a Republican.

          Mueller has the confidence of Trey Gowdy, among others. That's about as Republican as you get. Remember, Trey Gowdy was the one going after Clinton for Benghazi. How much more Republican can you get? And he has confidence in Muller's integrity, saying it's beyond question.

          And Mueller didn't make this decision on his own. A Grand Jury indicted these people. Manafort was Trump's campaign manager. So are you saying Manafort was a lone wolf or that Trump simply didn't know what he was up to?

          They are charged with committing conspiracy with the United States. Anybody with even a mild streak of patriotism should be appalled.

            These two are both   self serving political ladder climbers in love with camera's ,They know no loyalties nor affiliations other than who pay's at the moment .
            There are still no Trump ties .

              crankaliciousposted 3 weeks agoin reply to this

              The indictments came from a grand jury. Do you even know how the justice system works?

              And the fact that Manafort was the CHAIRMAN OF TRUMP'S CAMPAIGN is, by definition, a tie to Trump.

              This is very much like climate change. There can be all the data in the world, but if Fox News suggests it's snowing somewhere, THERE'S NO CLIMATE CHANGE!

                They were charged with laundering money and not reporting a quite legal arrangement with the Ukraine.  Not conspiracy - there is no hint of conspiracy, except conspiring to commit tax fraud.

                It's quite doubtful that Trump had any idea of what Manafort had done years prior to the campaign.  If the US government, with all its resources, didn't know, how can a private citizen be expected to?

                  I'd also like to submit that the earth revolves around the sun, yet I know that 25% of Republicans do not believe that, so I'm sure I'll get an argument.

                  Important point, yes, but you already know that Manafort will be leveraged to 'sing', don't matter if done years before, during or after, it's a dirty deal all the way around.




                  Months before candidate Donald Trump asked Russia to “find” Hillary Clinton's missing private server emails — a statement the campaign later called a joke — a Russian operative told a campaign aide "the Russians had emails of Clinton," according to a plea agreement released Monday.

                  In the first guilty plea of special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation, George Papadopoulos admitted lying to the FBI about contact with Russian agents that offered the campaign "thousands" of damaging emails about Clinton.

                    The question is whether he will tell the truth while singing, or lie to the FBI (ala Papadopoulos) and invent dirt on Trump in return for a better deal?

              Come on ahorseback, two different eras?

              Same action - fire the sheriff about to arrest you. Sarcasm would be some kind of statement like; ""Sure, I see the difference." but an honest reply would be to ask if you really can't see the similarities.

              I would say that a Trump action against Mueller would bring more Watergate Saturday Night Massacre references than Google could index, in less time than it takes to say "You gotta be kiddin' me!"

              One thing is for sure. My opinion is that if such an action were to occur, Trump's fundamental base, (the ones that wouldn't waver if he shot someone on Main Street - or whatever that quote was), would be the only segment of our society that would support him.  The rest of us, including the ones that are rooting for him to "drain the swamp,"  and bring the establishment change that their votes asked him to do, will jump ship quicker than a new special counsel can be appointed.

              Geesh, you really would support such an action in this political environment? Geesh!

    Being an undisclosed highly-paid foreign agent while holding government office is certainly within spitting distance of a conspiracy charge.  Every single person who broke the law should get charged no matter what their affiliation is.  I don't see "they other guys might have done it too" as any kind of excuse.  Prosecute the lot of them.
