Wall Street Journal article on metoo Kavanaugh ambush.
It won't let me read the article, unless I subscribe. Can you provide a cliff notes version?

"Turns out that Brett Kavanaugh’s mother was the judge in in a 1996 home-foreclosure case in which the defendants were the parents of Kavanaugh’s last-minute attempted-rape accuser Christine Blasey Ford. The house in question, pictured above, is in Potomac, one of the highest-income towns in Montgomery County, Maryland, the Washington, D.C. suburb that is one of America’s highest-income residential areas."
Of course that is just a coincidence right? :roll:

It seems very convenient, that this just came to light now. Not only is it a nearly 40 year old incident, but DF, sat on the info for three months, without doing anything with it. Here is Kurt Schlichter's take.

Did you forget or did you not notice that Cohen punked Lanny Davis and CNN in a brilliant move? And did you forget or did you not notice that the crimes Cohen pleaded to were not crimes? The prosecutors involved in the Cohen case hope they only get disbarred when this settles out.
Not crimes? While a lot of right wingnut's and talking heads uttered this lie repeatedly since cohen's plea agreement was made in court, the crimes cohen plead to were real. Perhaps you forgot or failed to notice that cohen pleaded guilty to five counts of tax evasion, one count of making a false statement to a financial institution, and two counts related to campaign-finance violations which are directly related to trump's campaign? The prosecutors have their convictions in this matter. They won't be disbarred for being successful, quite the contrary I would expect them to be promoted.

And another thing - Manafort had a title as campaign manager, but he never was. Kushner was is charge of the campaign the whole time. I'll let you think about that for a while.
Trump may try to distance himself now that manafort has flipped, but he was directly involved in the trump campaign. Trying to recast historical fact with alternative truths is nothing more than blind denial. If kushner played a larger role than manafort, then it's quite likely that mueller may be tightening this investigation to include him next. I'll let you think about that for a while.


philbo, I know you are extremely anxious for a Pence Presidency, but, neither you, nor Mueller, have come up with anything, that ties Trump to any criminal activity. Did he hire a crooked lawyer? Yes, but I would venture to guess, that Cohen, is not the only lawyer in New York, that fits that bill. The "campaign finance violations" that he plead guilty to, are not crimes. He cannot be charged with "campaign violations", because he was not seeking office. The tax evasion, etc. are, so he will face the consequences for those. Paying someone as part of a non-disclosure agreement, is also not illegal, it is done all the time, not only by politicians, but celebrities, of all types.

I'm not sure why you think that Trump being charged with any crimes, or will subsequently be impeached, is an attainable goal. Nor do I understand why you think policies, will change under Pence.

Another "tidbit" this morning... Manafort intends to plead guilty to two crimes of the seven he faced at trial: conspiring to defraud the United States and conspiring to obstruct justice.

https://www.washingtonpost.com/world/na ... 7fc29688f4
It appears that Manafort pleaded guilty to all that he's been charged with and has agreed to speak freely about everything of which he has knowledge.

Cohen seems to be talking freely too.

Who's next??? :drool:

I'm sure that they are singing like birds, about their individual crimes. Bank Fraud, etc.. Unless you have a source, of actual crimes, tied to Trump, what they say, to get reduced sentences, is meaningless. Trump, has made several mistakes, in selecting people to work with, mostly in hindsight, like Omarosa. Sessions, is not panning out to be very effective as AG. But crimes these guys committed, before working for Trump, only reflect upon them.
I'm still not sure what the MSM, or the left feel, is relevant, about the rabbit hole Mueller is going down, just to try, these people, for crimes, that have nothing to do, with the scope of his investigation. Their last "gotcha" moment fell through when Cohen's lawyer, said they had info regarding a meeting, but them backtracked, because, it was revealed, that Cohen's testimony before Congress, disputed that. Let them get what ever deal they can.

Meanwhile Trump is moving steadily along keeping campaign promises, and exposing the socialist, media, and dumbocrats, for what they are.

But nothing he is pleading to, happened after 2012. Was he, in hindsight, a poor choice for Trump to pick for a campaign manager? Absolutely!. But I doubt, he laid out all of his shenanigans, to Trump, before taking the job. But what does this have to do, with the "collusion", or the obstruction of justice, Mueller, is so desperately searching for?
The obstruction of justice is definitely since 2012. His forfeiture of $46 million in cash and property to the government just paid for the investigation. Now Mueller has a direct line into the meeting of June 2016 with Russian nationals offering dirt on Hillary Clinton... you know, the one trump and freinds have repeatedly lied about since it became public. Less of a witch hunt with every conviction. More winning!


If there was any illegal activity, he would have already indicted, Trump Jr. He gave a full statement, on the reason for the meeting (dirt on HRC) and then when it was discovered, that the meeting was for another purpose, he left. The "Russian National" was all part of the plot to try to trap DT, anyway. There is nothing there. The crooks out to get him were too incompetent, to even pull off, a trap. It wouldn't matter, if she did have "dirt", there is still no crime. What is the possible, outcome that you think will somehow "get" Trump? Almost 2 years of investigating, and so far, we have convictions for bank fraud, and other crimes, that happened, at least three years before Trump announced he was running for President. :headscratch So yeah, it looks even more like a witch hunt everyday.

Interesting to see how this will turn out. Could be big or nothing. Seems like he is having to give up a lot of vacation homes to the government.

Imagine your a Trump buddy the day after the election. You probably were happy and excited at your future. Probably not now.

Yep, he lied about doing something that wasn't a crime.
Lying to officials (federal statute 18 USC Section 1001) was the lesser of crimes he pled guilty to as part of a plea agreement. His lies enabled at least one suspect to escape US jurisdiction before they could be questioned and possibly charged. Perhaps you're comfortable with that level of obstruction, but many are not.

If he didn't want to speak, he should have remained silent; but, as the late Justice Antonin Scalia once explained, “Neither the text nor the spirit of the Fifth Amendment confers a privilege to lie. ‘[P]roper invocation of the Fifth Amendment privilege against compulsory self-incrimination allows a witness to remain silent, but not to swear falsely.’

And for those who believe one might "damage the country by promoting the negative about our president."... how would you justify your hypocrisy for the rant's you have invoked about the former president's? Or, did you only espouse the positive about Obama & Bush and remain silent when you disagreed with their actions and policies?

My point was, it was not a crime, to meet with the Russian. Even, if he had "dirt" on HRC, that does not constitute, any criminal action. Just like the meeting with the female Russian, that Trump Jr. attended. If it was, why hasn't Mueller, indicted, him? Popadopolous, lied to investigators, true, but even the Judge stated, that their was no proof that anything, he did by meeting with him, would have been actionable. You are correct, his best course of action was to keep his mouth shut, and let them prove, a crime was committed.

I have made my points against BHO, very clear. I disagreed with him almost unilaterally, on his policies. However, I never once, expressed, hatred towards him. I am a Patriot, first and foremost, and when I see the travesty, that is the Mueller investigation, perpetrated, by those who wish to try to de-legitimize, a duly elected President, I would have criticized that type of investigation, against BHO. As BHO said, "Elections have consequences" and just because they don't turn out like we want, does, not mean that they somehow need to be subverted. Donald, Trump, went up against, the best this country had to offer, as far as Republican, candidates, and beat them all. Is he a polished speaker? No, is his personality, what we are used to seeing from out leaders? No. Do his morals, perfectly align with mine? No. But he has done everything, he said he would do if elected. He has exposed, the swamp, for what it is, along with the bias, in the MSM, the DOJ, and the intelligence community. That is not the case, with any of our recent POTUS. This investigation, is just what Trump said it is, a witch hunt. They have made up a charge, "collusion" and using the same false information, they used to spy,on his campaign, are now looking for gnat poop, in pepper. JMHO

Ex-Trump campaign aide Papadopoulos sentenced to 14 days in prison, one year of supervised release, 200 hours of community service and he was also ordered to pay a fine of $9,500.

https://www.reuters.com/article/us-usa- ... op+News%29

Moss (the judge) said he wanted to impose some prison time because while he did not “remotely believe Mr. Papadopoulos was seeking to assist the Russian government,” he was nevertheless troubled by Papadopoulos’ selfish motives to lie to the FBI so that he would not lose a shot at getting a possible job in the Trump administration. During Friday’s hearing, Papadopoulos’ attorney Thomas Breen went out his way to praise the FBI, and he also criticized Trump for calling the Russia probe fake news and a witch hunt. “The president of the United States hindered this investigation more than George Papadopoulos ever could,” Breen told the judge.

Another conviction. :patriot:

Yep, he lied about doing something that wasn't a crime. Way to go Mueller!! More taxpayer money well spent. That $9500.00 will go a long way to repay the millions already wasted. :roll:

Working with others in the White House to derail his presidency.
Sounds rather contrived. I believe this is just another attempt, by the MSM, to discredit Trump, and again, they are using "anonymous" sources. If there truly are those inside, who are working to thwart, the President, why are they still there? Why haven't they gone to work for someone they feel would be a better President, in two years? Also, if, as they claim, they want his administration to succeed, why talk to the press? What possible benefit, can be had?

One hundred and seventy-five former US officials spanning service across intelligence agencies, the State Department, the National Security Council and the Department of Defense added their names on Monday to a list of intelligence officials denouncing President Donald Trump's decision to revoke former CIA Director John Brennan's security clearance.

FLASHBACK: When Democrats Demanded John Brennan Resign
https://townhall.com/tipsheet/katiepavl ... n-n2511455
But it wasn't so long ago that Democrats felt very differently about Brennan. In fact, a number of lawmakers on the left side of the aisle have called for his resignation in the past.
The C.I.A.’s Reckless Breach of Trust
https://www.nytimes.com/2014/08/01/opin ... ef=opinion
In March, John Brennan, the C.I.A. director, was indignant when Senator Dianne Feinstein charged that the agency had broken into computers used by staff investigators from the Senate Intelligence Committee, which she leads. “As far as the allegations of C.I.A. hacking into Senate computers,” he said, “nothing could be further from the truth. I mean, we wouldn’t do that. I mean, that’s just beyond the scope of reason.”

But reason seems to have little to do with the C.I.A.’s operations, as Mr. Brennan apparently discovered far too late. On Thursday, the Central Intelligence Agency admitted that it did, indeed, use a fake online identity to break into the Senate’s computers, where documents connected to a secret report on the agency’s detention and torture program were being stored.
I guess the leftists forgive Brennan now for spying on them.


It was the same story with Comey, everyone on the left including HRC wanted him fired. Until he was, then he was the a stalwart, in the fight against Trump.

I guess nobody, on the left realize, that all of these agencies are angry with Trump, because they knew that their jobs were not secure, since they had nothing on him. If HRC had won, none of these folks would be out of a job, because they had too much leverage to hold over her. (think J. Edgar Hoover) That is why, when it looked like Trump might win, everyone went to great lengths, to try to create, a conspiracy, but it was botched so badly, that they all have egg on their face.
