G as in get lost Giuliani. With majority of the voters supporting Mueller's probe, pit bull attacks on Mueller and his team only makes him and the Dotard look weaker. Once again, they are only playing to their base which in this case is inconsequential.

And that is why Donald Dork went had had a long discussion with Senate goppers.


cuz I don't get Wapo...

“There is no doubt that Russia undertook an unprecedented effort to interfere with our 2016 elections.”

As part of its investigation into Russian meddling, the committee has for several months been reviewing the January 2017 assessment compiled by top U.S. intelligence officials.

The assessment found that Russia sought to interfere in the election for three reasons: to undermine U.S. democracy, to damage Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton and to help Trump win the White House.

On Wednesday, committee lawmakers met behind closed doors with former top intelligence officials who played a major role in compiling the assessment. In a joint statement following that meeting, Burr and Vice Chairman Mark Warner (D-Va.) signaled their agreement with the findings.

“After a thorough review, our staff concluded that the [intelligence community assessment] conclusions were accurate and on point,” Warner said. “The Russian effort was extensive, sophisticated, and ordered by President Putin himself for the purpose of helping Donald Trump and hurting Hillary Clinton.”

The Senate Judiciary Committee said Wednesday that the Russian government apparently used the National Rifle Association to help Donald Trump’s presidential campaign in 2016.

Documents suggest the Kremlin used the NRA to offer the campaign a back channel to Moscow—including a potential meeting between Trump and Vladimir Putin—and might have secretly funded Trump’s campaign, the committee said. One of the Russians named in the report even bragged she was part of the Trump campaign’s communications with Russia.

"NEW YORK (Reuters) - The former son-in-law of Paul Manafort, the one-time chairman of President Donald Trump’s campaign, has cut a plea deal with the Justice Department that requires him to cooperate with other criminal probes, two people with knowledge of the matter said.

The guilty plea agreement, which is under seal and has not been previously reported, could add to the legal pressure on Manafort, who is facing two indictments brought by Special Counsel Robert Mueller in his probe of alleged Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election."

More rats to bedevil Manafort and Trump.

'Politicians who took NRA money ought to give it back'
'Right Turn' by Jennifer Rubin

"One of the extraordinary findings in the Senate Judiciary Committee’s preliminary report released on Wednesday concerns the National Rifle Association. The report states:
The Committee has obtained a number of documents that suggest the Kremlin used the National Rifle Association as a means of accessing and assisting Mr. Trump and his campaign. Two individuals involved in this effort appear to be Russian nationals Alexander Torshin and Maria Butina. Mr. Torshin is a Putin ally and the Deputy Governor of the Central Bank of Russia, and Ms. Butina served as his assistant. She also founded Right to Bear Arms, the Russian equivalent of the NRA, and started a business with former Trump supporter and adviser Paul Erickson. Both Mr. Torshin and Ms. Butina have longstanding ties to ex-NRA president, David Keene, and in 2013, hosted him in Russia for a pro-gun conference.
During the campaign, Mr. Torshin, Ms. Butina, and their intermediaries repeatedly offered the campaign back channels to Russia and relayed requests from President Putin to meet with Mr. Trump. The Kremlin may also have used the NRA to secretly fund Mr. Trump’s campaign. The extent of Russia’s use of the NRA as an avenue for connecting with and potentially supporting the Trump campaign needs examination. Requests for documents and staff interviews have been sent to Ms. Butina, Mr. Erickson, and Mr. Keene, but they have refused to cooperate.
Russia’s alleged use of the NRA as a kind of front group raises serious questions, according to Russia experts. “We’ve focused a lot on the Russian outreach on social media, but we’ve missed the entirety of Russian influence efforts,” says former FBI special agent Clinton Watts. “Active Measures seek to engage on three levels, State-to-state, State-to-people (social media) and state-to-party. The NRA outreach represents their ground game where they seek to engage sympathetic parties and organizations in the target audience by aligning along common interests.” He reminds us, “During [the] Cold War, this was via communist parties and so************************t groups, now with Russian Active Measures it’s through groups like the NRA or religious connections.”" WaPo

Amazing op-ed from a long time hard right columnist. I guess there are still a few conservatives left who haven't drunk that bitter and noxious tea.

Rudy's desperate new defense. Their intent now seems to totally discredit the Mueller investigation, the FBI and the Justice Department. Nunes, Freedumb Caucus and now Rudy, all barking at law enforcement. Promoting anarchy in a land of laws is what this is leading up to. Let us hope that the State of NY is looking to bring state level charges on Trump and his band of crooks since Trump can ultimately sabotage the investigations by firing Sessions, Rosenstein, Wray and Mueller. The other hope is that if it comes to a constitutional crisis, details of the entire investigation is leaked. That may be the profound risk that Trump and the gullible GOP may be ignoring.

Rudy’s desperate new defense for Trump: Conspiring with the Russians wasn’t illegal!

Donny 'Two Scoops of Vanilla' Trump DEMANDS that the DOJ investigate the FBI. If they're going to do that they should go 'whole hawg' and investigate the Trump cabal in the New York office too.
