  1. I'm sure Trump will get us on the right path ASAP.

    Bye bye Google +

    I didn't use Google+, but hiding the breach is NOT a good look.
  3. I wish I had kept a list of characters because there are so many to keep up with. This is they guy who left a suicide note that said, “NO FOUL PLAY WHATSOEVER”. He also mentioned Michael Flynn as well as Steve Bannon, Kellyanne Conway, and Sam Clovis in recruiting documents. In addition, he met with alt right troll Charles Johnson, has ties to Newt Gingrich, and worked to take down Bill Clinton with Troopergate. What a tangled web!

    Paul Manafort

    We finally found out what had the POTUS so upset over the weekend. It is Manafort Monday after all.

    Get Me Roger Stone

    Well, well, well. Roger seems to be in a bit of trouble. Roger Stone Sought Information on Clinton from Assange, Emails Show Ex-Trump adviser urged intermediary to ask WikiLeaks for specific dates of rival candidate’s communications Former Trump campaign adviser Roger Stone privately sought information he considered damaging to Hillary Clinton from WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange during the 2016 presidential campaign, according to emails reviewed by The Wall Street Journal. The emails could raise new questions about Mr. Stone’s testimony before the House Intelligence Committee in September, in which he said he “merely wanted confirmation” from an acquaintance that Mr. Assange had information about Mrs. Clinton, according to a portion of the transcript that was made public. In a Sept. 18, 2016, message, Mr. Stone urged an acquaintance who knew Mr. Assange to ask the WikiLeaks founder for emails related to Mrs. Clinton’s alleged role in disrupting a purported Libyan peace deal in 2011 when she was secretary of state, referring to her by her initials. “Please ask Assange for any State or HRC e-mail from August 10 to August 30--particularly on August 20, 2011,” Mr. Stone wrote to Randy Credico, a New York radio personality who had interviewed Mr. Assange several weeks earlier. Mr. Stone, a longtime confidant of Mr. Trump, had no formal role in his campaign at the time.

    Get Me Roger Stone

    Oh, I think I should add Jeff Sessions. He said he hasn't been interviewed yet, either.

    Get Me Roger Stone

    I think he's a target. They save the best for last. Others that are probably targets and haven't been interviewed: Ivanka, Jared, Jr, and Eric.
  9. I do think the chaos is intentional, but I wouldn't say that nothing has come of anything because there have been indictments, guilty pleas, and cooperating witnesses.

    Get Me Roger Stone

    In addition, Republicans on the House Intel Committee (I'm looking at you dirty Devin Nunes) refused to issue subpoenas for Roger Stone's twitter DM's which include communications with WikiLeaks and Julian Assange (not that Roger has anything to hide).

    Get Me Roger Stone

    I admit to having a "thing" for Roger Stone. He fascinates me. He's bad. He plays dirty. And I can't stop watching him. When he was banned from Twitter I was heartbroken. His meltdowns were epic. In his most recent interview he says that 8 of his associates have been interviewed by Muller, but the public only knew about of them. Roger seems to be a target, and I expect the Muller team to squeeze him as hard as they have Manafort.
  12. RNC paid nearly half a million dollars to law firm representing Hope Hicks and others in Russia probes The Republican National Committee paid nearly half a million dollars to a law firm that represents former White House communications director Hope Hicks and others in the Russia investigations, according to a new federal filing. The RNC's $451,780 payment to Trout Cacheris & Janis adds to the mounting legal fees associated with the investigations by special counsel Robert S. Mueller III and several congressional committees of Russian interference in the 2016 presidential campaign. Hicks hired Robert Trout, founder of the law firm, as her personal attorney in September, according to news reports. The report of the payments for legal and compliance services, contained in the Federal Election Commission report filed Sunday, is the first public disclosure of RNC payments to the law firm since Hicks hired Trout. Three lawyers at the firm represent people in addition to Hicks in the investigations by Mueller and the House and Senate intelligence committees, according to the firm's website. Hicks, who was one of President Trump's most trusted and loyal aides, was interviewed by Mueller and the House and Senate intelligence panels in early 2018.

I can't think of a person in Trump's immediate orbit that I don't think isn't involved in conspiring with other governments or helping to cover up.

    Bannon Will Take Down Trump

    Well, well, well! That was interesting. I wonder how many people have flipped at this point. 5? 10? more?
