An interesting comment from the Mueller partisans article from DebinGA 6:06p--->

"I agree that it seems pretty silly that Mueller would waste time on a petty charge of lying to the FBI if that was all he had in his arsenal. I freely admit I'm guessing here -- but General Flynn worked as a lobbyist and consultant to the government of Turkey and did not register as a foreign agent until after he'd been doing that for quite some time. Before he registered, he may have conspired to have Fethullah Gülen kidnapped -- not legally extradited -- from the U.S. and taken back to Turkey, where he would very likely be murdered as Magnitsky was in Russia. Turkey's head of state was getting impatient with the extradition process, and his claim that Gülen heads a terrorist organization is doubtful. Recep Erdogan isn't quite a dictator, but he sure is authoritarian.

If General Flynn really did do that, and Mueller has evidence to that effect, he'd be in a position to say to Flynn, "Which would you rather?

Be charged with a comparatively minor offence of lying to the FBI, and be guaranteed lenient treatment even over that, or charged with trying to have a foreign national resident in the U.S. illegally snatched to oblige a Turkish head of state for whom you were working as an unregistered foreign agent, which is illegal in itself?

You can opt for the former, but in that case I want you to sing."

And whom, exactly, could Flynn implicate in conspiracy with Russia if he testified to everything he knows?

I've no idea who or how many.

But Jared Kushner seems like one strong possibility.

Again, yes, I'm guessing.

But whether you like Mueller or loathe him (and I promise you the Feds are not my favourite people) it would seem he either has to have more than he's telling, or he's losing his marbles."

I am assuming that Mueller is competent but malicious, it is passing ridiculous to assume otherwise, my pet theory involves that tiny emirate disfavored by trumps policies

I've always thought Tel Aviv was in Israel.

Lyle, CFPB collected data much like NSA did. Most people have no idea that all their financial transactions (ATM withdrawals, credit card usage, bank transfers, checks written, mortgage and loan payments / applications, investments, etc) are stored at CFPB. Or that they use these to make up crimes by banks ( which names are African American? I don see enough, fine the bank). The level of bs they had going would stagger anyone.

narcisoyes,

Hmmm. Good theory. They seem to have been absent in the news for quite some time, haven't they?

I bet Admiral Rogers could help out with that.

Wouldn't it be great if the whole lot got arrested for espionage and sedition? There isn't enough popcorn in the country to satisfy me on that one!

Lt General Flynn is a dangerous hombre by every measure.

Dangerous to who or whom (can't decide which to use.) :)

Do you really think he was going to help get that guy killed by spiriting him away to Turkey?

Now I'm wondering if Deputy Head of Counterintelligence, FBI Agent Peter Strzok was the person who interviewed Seth Rich.

Account Deleted

Speaking of Mueller and emirates, it's not going to suprise me one bit how many of our best brightest have been bought by the same moneybags who turn out to be key players in the anti-Trump vanguard.

Hamrod was on the take. Arab money is stashed in her basement as we speak. But she lost. So how hard are those ragheads throwing cash around now to sack POTUS,fell our electoral process, and restore access to the hallowed halls?

I wonder if Jefferson had snakes in his Cabinet and in Congress before he took out the pashas in Tripoli? Were there "Muellers" at the ready back then doing the bidding of furriners against the fledgling nation?

As fragile as the balance of power and the rule of law are, is the US ever more than one step beyond "fledgling nation" status?

How viperous the EU and UN seem compared to the crowned heads Europe and MENA of the early 19th century.

Momto2

A Facebook account that appears to be operated by Melissa Hodgman, a top lawyer at the Securities and Exchange Commission who married Strzok in 1994, shows membership in several pro-Clinton and pro-Obama Facebook groups.

“Democrats for a Blue America” and “Thank You Obama” are two of the groups Hodgman supports. She is also a follower of a page called “We Voted for Hillary.”

Surprise - it's every stinking one of them - wives, mistresses, parents...heck, I'm willing to be if his grandparents are alive and on SM - they are all Dem hacks as well!

Account Deleted

joan---> it may be more about what Mueller can feel free to insinuate about Flynn because Flynn failed to register as a foreign agent.

How would Flynn prove he wasn't involved in a mess like that one? Would Erdogan cop to any knowledge of such a play. I'd bet not.

Peter Strzok:

- Part of the Comey/McCabe cabal

- Handled Steel and #fakenews dossier inside FBI alongside McCabe

- Hand picked by Comey to run Hillary e mail investigation

- Hand picked by Mueller for senior investigative staff

Coincidences like this simply don't exist. (my bold)

GUS

All of the people involved in the RODHAM......."MATTER", voted for her.

Really hard to find photos of these people. Here is another one of Strzok's mistress - Lisa Page.

So for whom do all of these black hats work? Yes, they are on various agency payrolls. But who is calling the shots in this coup bidness?

Jim Eagle

Bolton is right. We are in the middle of a treasonous or seditionous coup by the left led by Obama's Logan Act interferinging in our rightfull elected leaders foreign policy conduct.

Jim Eagle

KK,

Follow the money. Most likely Soros and Steyer. But Obama and his puppet masters like Valerie and Brennan/Clapper. The question is who does Brennan represent. Solve that and you know who.

Which event is that picture from? They look like they lost an election, or possibly didn't get a cookie with lunch.

That does look like Strzok. Can we ID the others? This appears to be coup central.

Yes - upon a closer look that is definitely Strzok on the left - leaving the hearing with McCabe.

Sundance is busy doing a thread about the events of the last 48 hours. I will post it when he is finished.

Catsmeat

A day of mists and thunder (and, actually, in Nebraska a day of 50 mph winds which threaten the porch Xmas tree, subsidiary as it is and relegated to the subsidiary theoretically unbreakable ornaments). Still it skittered three feet to the east under force of winds--but not over!

In lit today I was teaching about Keats' objective correlative (used by Woolf in To the Lighthouse, a bunch, actually) in which something in nature or the world around us exactly suits our own minds at a given moment. So the wind seems about right.

If you aren't watching Lou Dobson, you should be. He is calling for the prosecution of Mueller among other things.

One thing is very clear: Trump needs better lawyers.

As the cascade of foppery continues let's allow our thoughts to find higher ground: (no really--- look at what this anti-Antifa guy says)---->

"Think of the men who have changed history! What do they have in common? What separates them from the faceless, shapeless masses of humanity that neither achieve nor rise above their station to alter the course of events and empires?

Did Hernán Cortés wake up one morning in 1519 and promise himself he’d have sixpack abs in time for summer?

Or did he burn his ships on the beach, invade a new continent, and establish immense and immortal glory and wealth for the Spanish Crown before advancing with fire and sword towards Tenochtitlan?

Did Arthur Wellesley, 1st Duke of Wellington, sit at his desk in 1815 and make a resolution to improve his success with women?

Or did he lead a magnificent, brilliant defense at Waterloo, permanently break the back of Napoleon Bonaparte and save the future of Europe from one of the most famous conquerors in the world?

Those men had sacred purpose!

They threw their lives down on the table with unconquerable ferocity!"

used by Woolf in To the Lighthouse

Catsmeat, I was about to say the same thing CH did. Not fond of Lighthouse.

Woolf, however, if she wrote nothing else, should be revered for her 1923 essay in which she claimed, “On or about December 1910 human nature changed.”

Woolf described ‘Modernism’ as an artistic intent to push deeper into the literary representations of consciousness. If character is the question of life, should it also be the question of literature? Should characterization of characters mirror character in life?”

Great fun!

Rocco

Although this timeline doesn't mention Strzok, I believe he was working directly for McCabe at some point. You couldn't make this stuff up if you wanted to...McCabe recused himself from the McAuliffe investigation but remained in charge of the Clinton Foundation investigation which by the way, McAuliffe was a board member.

And quite a coincidence that one month before the state department released the first batch of emails, the ones/one that sparked the IG's investigation, McCabe's wife was asked to run for a state senate seat in VA. The FBI also began their investigation in May, 2015. The heat was on so they stacked the deck!

Clarice,

I wish I had a set of pistolas.

It seems to me that the FBI became an arm of the Clinton-Obama cabal sometime soon after Obama was elected.

This indicates to me that the corruption was there before that time, or there would have been resistance to the corruption.

It is possible that they undermined W as well, only he was too naive to call them on it, or maybe he was complicit.

I hope this makes sense. What I am trying to say is that they have been corrupted and politicized since before 2008.

Miss M, we may need to place the corruption closer to the Whitewater investigation / Vince Foster coverup. If not all the way back to Slick's inauguration. Who gave FBI files of Republicans to Livingston?

Captain Hate

It is possible that they undermined W as well, only he was too naive to call them on it, or maybe he was complicit.

That will be something for the historians to sort out, assuming any real ones emerge from this. One thing is for sure after the last nine years: the Bushes weren't what we were led to believe.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

henry,

Good point. I don't know, but I would love for someone to find the answer!

simply stupid

My question is the total arrogance of Mueller Comey and Mccabe in hiring Strzock and Page even while the IG had an investigation going on. Thought that IG being an Obama appointee would look the other way but the same forces that caused Comey to make the July 5 and October 28 pressers got to the IG and held his feet to the fire. Mueller stupid and arrogant to hire them and now the whole thing will blow up on the DEMS and the ddep state.

CH, totally understand about the not wanting to re-visiting To the Lighthouse--I myself wouldn't read it for pleasure or even light money. Sbw, yes, and that December, 1910 arbitrary date is important. Her escapade with other Bloomsbury pranksters in the Dreadnought hoax (they were pacifists and wanted to make the Royal Navy look bad) was a marker--old age gone, new age in. And JiB, I should have seen that lovely Keats thing but will soon when I've time. My only plea: I'm not a Romanticist.

7. The larger stories today seem to build out on a specific narrative that appears, well constructed, to further defend those interests. The Deep State, and the 'Black Hat' operatives within it, is/are circling the wagons per se'.
