matt - deplore me if you must

I am still waiting on photos of the Russian hookers.

GUS

Who paid for the RUSSIAN DOSSIER?
Quite simple really. Mueller needs to subpoena RODHAM, like with a cloth. HE then needs to ask her some pretty simple questions.
DID YOU PAY FOR A RUSSIAN DOSSIER to SMEAR MR TRUMP and sway the election with the help of RUSSIA?????


Pretty easy. Wouldn't take 2 years.

glasater

From what I've read it seems Cohen was pursuing the 'Russia' deal on his own self..pretty much.

The Infamous Ignatz

Muller is proving beyond any doubt that international hucksters don't pay taxes, lawyers are slimy and people lie.
He's not proving anything he was appointed to, but he is proving those other things everyone has known for ever.

Old Geezer

Cohen first says "A". Cohen later says "B"--and "I lied when I said "A".

Well it's a mortal lock that Cohen lied at least one time---but which time?

And the odds are pretty good that he was lying both times and the objective truth is "C".

GUS

I love your choices Tom Maguire. Play along with the charade. Pretend this investigation is real.

So (B) Trump may have lied. About what?
About the DOSSIER that he paid umpteen million for in an effort to sway the election with the help of RUSSIANS. This bull shit is laughable.

After 2 years we have a prosecutor who has NOTHING.
There is NOTHING.

Old Geezer, that logic trick broke Harvey Mudd's androids.

Trump said yesterday before he got in the helicopter that he was working on the Russian deal until he won the election. He said there was a good chance he would lose and he wasn't going to give up his business. Once he won, the deal was abandoned and he worked on being president.

So if Mueller's out of control, why isn't Whitaker doing anything about it?

Possible answers why Whitaker isn't doing anything about Mueller:

1) Whitaker is a corrupt member of the Deep State Swamp just like Rosenstein.
2) Sleepy Matt is incompetent just like Sleepy Jeff.
3) Mueller isn't out of control.

Tom R

I don't think Macron wants MBS to answer his question truthfully. It might cause self-esteem problems.

Blue State Blues: Democrats Stole the Election in California — Legally, Through ‘Ballot Harvesting’

Few people noticed when Gov. Jerry Brown signed the changes in AB1921 into law two years ago. In the past, California allowed only relatives or people living in the same household to drop off mail ballots for another voter. The new law allowed anyone, even a paid political campaign worker, to collect and return ballots — “harvesting” them, in political slang.

In Orange County alone, where every House seat went Democratic, “the number of Election Day vote-by-mail dropoffs was unprecedented — over 250,000,” Fred Whitaker, chairman of the county Republican Party, said in a note to supporters. “This is a direct result of ballot harvesting allowed under California law for the first time. That directly caused the switch from being ahead on election night to losing two weeks later.”

For Democrats, the ballot harvesting was all part of a greater effort to get out the vote from their supporters, particularly from occasional voters.

“We beat Republicans on the ground, fair and square,” said Katie Merrill, a Democratic consultant deeply involved in November campaigns. “Many of the field plans included (ballot harvesting) as an option to deliver voters or their ballots” to the polls.

This is illegal elsewhere, at least for now. More at the link.

GUS

I thought those guys and Rip Van Sessions were all WHITE HATS?

I mean, we need to get a game day scorecard on this nonsense.

NO ONE has been held accountable for MASSIVE FBI corruption. Strzok said he's "Stop Trump", "fuck trump", "insurance policy". And he LET RODHAM off the hook when her CRIMES WERE OBVIOUS. Strzok told us that he didn't ACT on his bias. UTTTTTER MOTHERFUCKING NONSENSE. Yet he skates.
So I am to believe that something is going to change???? Who will prosecute the PROSECUTORS???

There is no 4-D, there was no 4-D and the goal posts keep moving.

So now HUBER is the WHITE HAT HERO???? What does HUBER even look like??

I don't think MBS gives a flying fuck what MARCON thinks.

Tom,

I think you feel some sort of provincial pride in Sessions but the fact that his most obdurate defenders refuse to admit is that he wasn't doing the job to the satisfaction of DJT. I don't know why that makes him any different than Tillerson or Priebus other than length of time on the job.

boatbuilder

Knowing nothing about it, we can be sure that if Trump has been pursuing a property idea for Moscow there are financiers, property owners, builders, prospective tenants, government officials and various middlemen that can see a payday for themselves if a deal happens.

And what are the odds that not a single one of them is anti-Trump politically and/or sympathetic to the Democrat/Anti-Trump cause?

If Trump were still pursuing the Trump Tower Moscow thing later in the game than he said he was, all one of those persons has to do is tell Meuller and/or a WaPo or NYT reporter and they have what they need, Cohen or no Cohen.

That dog has not barked. Its been well over 2 years now. What does that tell us?

Occam's Razor points to explanation a).

Tom R

I think you feel some sort of provincial pride in Sessions but in my opinion he wasn't doing the job to the satisfaction of DJT.

FIFY

How long does Whitaker get before you start referring to him as Sleepy Matt?

Jack is Back!

CH,

Spot on in re Sessions. A more honorable, loyalist to DJT would have resigned on the spot if he had to recuse himself from any probe regarless of the circumstances. I keep reading and hearing about Sessions is just genuine nice, Southern gentleman (whatever that means) when in fact, from his first day on the job has jeopardized the Trump presidency more than Mueller has.

Trump being a non-politician got some bad poliitical advice ever since he announced his bid. Its taking him 3+ years to learn his way and shed the likes of Preibus, Tillerson, Sessions, et.al. Then he decided to go the uniform route with Mattis, Kelly, Linke, just to surround himself with loyal soldiers. Not any presidency in my lifetime has been attacked from the outside as well as the inside like his has.

The outsiders now have the House, and the Senate with Romney, who will replace McRino like a T. But someone told Trump to make Whitaker the acting AG, instead of Rosenstein. He said he didn't know him, so who was it that gave him that idea? Rudy? I think it was Grassley whispering to Kelly.

You are treating your assumption/opinion as fact. Haven't you figured it out by now you can't take Trump 100% literally on everything he says?

No one here knows what private conservations Trump and Sessions have had over the past 2 years. For all we know Sessions offered to resign a long time ago but Trump didn't accept it.

Tom R

But someone told Trump to make Whitaker the acting AG

My bet would be Sessions is who recommended Whitaker to Trump. Who else would know his credentials better than his boss?

MissMarple2

I freely admit I don't know what's going on.

Between the media lying and not covering things they should cover, Trump's predeliction to not telegraph his moves, and the various factions pushing different heroes and villains depending on the day of the week, I have hit my limit on trying to sort it out.

I am not angry with anyone who has their own theories. Not even mad at Old Lurker, whom I only hope will cheer up just a wee bit. LOL!

What was said of McClellan could be said of Mueller:

I like this man. He knows how to look busy, fuck around in DC and make shit up.

Tom R

Whenever the fuck I feel like it, Tom.

If Mueller is truly a Black Hat trying to destroy Trump, then enough time has passed for me to start referring to Whitaker as Sleepy Matt. He is obviously not doing what Trump hired him to do and is failing to reign in the out of control Mueller.

Manuel Transmission

Just received over the transom. Take it for the humor, at least.

Rebuilding New Orleans after Katrina often caused residents to be challenged to prove home titles back hundreds of years.  That is because of community history stretching back over two centuries during which houses were passed along through generations of family, sometimes making it quite difficult to establish a paper trail of ownership. 

A New Orleans lawyer sought a FHA rebuilding loan for a client. He was told the loan would be granted upon submission of satisfactory proof of ownership of the parcel of property as it was being offered as collateral. It took the lawyer 3 months, but he was able to prove title to the property dating back to 1803. After sending the information to the FHA, he received the following reply. 

(Actual reply from FHA): 

"Upon review of your letter adjoining your client's loan application, we note that the request is supported by an Abstract of Title. While we compliment the able manner in which you have prepared and presented the application, we must point out that you have only cleared title to the proposed collateral property back to 1803. Before final approval can be accorded, it will be necessary to clear the title back to its origin." 

And here is the great letter the lawyer responded with: 
(Actual response): 

"Your letter regarding title in Case No.189156 has been received. I note that you wish to have proof of title extended further than the 
206 years already covered in the present application. I was unaware that any educated person in this country, particularly those working with real property, would not know that Louisiana was purchased by the United States from France in 1803 , the year of origin of title identified in our application. For the edification of uninformed FHA bureaucrats, the title to the land prior to U.S. ownership was obtained from France, which had acquired it by Right of Conquest from Spain. The land came into the possession of Spain by Right of Discovery made in the year 1492 by a sea captain named Christopher Columbus, who had been granted the privilege of seeking a new route to India by the Spanish monarch, Queen Isabella. The good Queen Isabella, being a pious woman and almost as careful about titles as the FHA, took the precaution of securing the blessing of the Pope before she sold her jewels to finance Columbus 's expedition. Now the Pope, as I'm sure you may know, is the emissary of Jesus Christ, the Son of God, and God, it is commonly accepted, created this world. Therefore, I believe it is safe to presume that God also made that part of the world called Louisiana. God, therefore, would be the owner of origin and His origins date back to before the beginning of time, the world as we know it, and the FHA. I hope you find God's original claim to be satisfactory. Now, may we have our damn reconstruction loan?" 

The  loan was  immediately approved. Not only is this one of the best e-mails I have received, it is a great history.

MARLENE,

Daddy can't tell. It's dark there and they have no power. He thought there was some structural damage. Not still talking to him because he needs to save his power on the phone. Apparently he flew in, Mama picked him up, he did not go inside the house but rather took Scout on a walk, and it happened almost immediately. He texted me while he was still outside. It was probably 15 minutes before I could find a report of it.

Well Tom, you are misinterpreting my remarks, which seems to be a habit with you. I don't give a flying fuck what Trump would think or not think. I am only noting what an honorable, loyalist to Trump would/should/could do. You are only looking at Sessions through a completely different lense that I am. In fact, Sessions was weak from the minute he allowed a known weasel like Franken to get him to admit to a nothing burger diplomatic even meeting as if he committed treason. He should have immediately written a letter of resignation and hand-delivered to Trump.

Tom R keeps asking the same questions he's been asking for weeks, ignoring the answers he's been given numerous times. I'm not bothering any more.

But I'll just say this: Trump or Whitaker can't just close down Mueller without risking screams of "Obstruction of Justice" by Democrats, and, yes, impeachment. Mueller is an enemy agent with an unlimited budget, and needs to be terminated, with him and all his buddies in prison, but it handled carefully. I don't know why Trump and Whitaker haven't come out yet with all the goods on FISAgate and Uranium One, but it's not because Mueller is a good guy. If anything it's because he's not.

A shout-out to Mayor Bane on his tolerance of homeless and mentally ill people in NYC wandering and living on the streets. Saturday night my younger sister was walking along Broadway on the UWS, and suddenly this demented lady jumped at her and knocked her over. In falling she broke her arm. The perp got away. Some nearby pedestrians were helpful, the police came and she was taken to the hospital in an ambulance. She may need surgery.

Hopeful that the perp will be caught, as the police seem to know about these lowlifes. She just has't been up to making the trek to the police station to look at pix.

Thank you for the citation. I was aware that Sessions had offered to resign which is one reason JiB's comments came across as horse shit. Sessions did do the honorable and loyal thing but for reasons we don't know Trump did not accept the resignation. I always interpreted it as kabuki theater and that Trump wasn't really upset with Sessions.

Kevlar Kid

based on the twitter comments i guess it warrants not.

Old Lurker

There is a difference between "offering to resign" and "resigning".

In the former, it transfers the burden of the decision onto the boss, and that in turn can blow up in the bosses face either way.

True honor would recognize that a situation will be untenable to his boss and his organization and that stepping down is the only honorable thing to do. Bonus points go if the employee was smart enough to see the conflict coming and not taking the job in the first place.

Extraneus

I have to agree with OL on this, and Sessions' (undated, if I remember correctly) resignation letter is evidence of it. The letter said he was asked to resign, putting the blame on Trump, and no where in the letter was there any statement to the effect that the President deserved an AG who wasn't recused or otherwise limited from carrying out his duties.

Speaking of which, I tendered my own resignation email today. :-)

Old Lurker

If the right person had been placed in that job instead of Sessions, there may well not have been a SC; if there had been a SC, it would have been run by the AG and not some DAG; and for damn sure the other AG would have communicated and shared trust with his boss.

Trump's fault for picking the wrong man and for letting him stay past the second day of his recusal.

We are in the mess we are in because of those two mistakes.

Old Lurker

Thanks, OL, for clarifying before I had to do it. Sometimes Tom R is too close to the trigger. If you are honorable, loyal, and know you fucking screwed up in front of Dipshit Al Franken. You resign. Period. No escape.
