  1. Rod Rosentein, who has said he will stay at the Justice (sic) Department until Mueller probe is finished, did an about face this morning and instead of leaving DOJ as planned this month, will stay on indefinitely. Another sure sign the end is near and Mueller has nothing?
  2. And the prosecutor responsible for investigating "any links and/or coordination between the Russian government and individuals aassociated with" Trump's campaign, as Mueller's appointment memo describes it -- Jeannie Rhee -- is still on staff. Here was Judge Jackson Wednesday after sending Manafort off to his death: "The 'no collusion' mantra is simply a non sequitur," referring to Manafort's attorneys' claim that Mueller had found no evidence of collusion with Russia (which was just a stunt to appeal for a pardon). "It's also not accurate because the investigation is ongoing."
  3. You appear to be about as knowledgeable about this situation as Ken Dilanen at NBC news who has been reporting the investigation is ending since last fall. All members of Mueller’s team had specific tasks to which they were assigned. Weinstein’s job was to prosecute Manafort on money laundering charges. His job is done. He is leaving, just as have other prosecutors on the team did after their work was completed. Around October 1, 2018, after submitting a filing saying Mike Flynn was ready to be sentenced, Brandon Van Grack moved back to his duties elsewhere at DOJ (though he continues to be named in documents in the case, as he was Tuesday). He is now starting a prosecutorial focus on FARA. The investigation did not end after Van Grack left. Around October 15, 2018, Kyle Freeny, who had worked the money laundering angle on the GRU and Manafort cases, moved back to her duties elsewhere at DOJ. Did I miss the end of the investigation after Feeney left? Around December 31, 2018, after successfully defending the Mystery Appellant challenge in the DC Circuit, Scott Meisler moved back to his duties elsewhere at DOJ. I wonder why it didn’t end after Meisler left? While four have left, Mueller still has 13 of the original 17-member team of prosecutors on staff and working. The investigation may well end today. I don’t know, nor do you and your reasoning for saying so is clearly deeply flawed as I have easily demonstrated here. I kind of lean toward the theory that with 13 of the world’s fiercest prosecutors still on the payroll, anybody who confidently claims it’s over and there will be no more indictments does not know what he is talking about. Manafort’s sharing of documents with Kilimnik and George Nader’s revelations of Trump Jr. and Eric Prince meeting in August 2016with UAE reps who offer campaign help, prove conspiracy with foreign governments by top representatives of the campaign.
  4. Deaths going immediately unreported seems to be happening more and more. Recent examples include the Thursday, March 7 announcement of the death of actor Jan Michael Vincent on Feb 10, and the announcement just before Christmas that Sondra Locke had died in early November. Must be a thing now.
  5. Sweet little innocent Maria Butina helped arm anti-American thugs in Crimea. She's so innocent and harmless, as The New Republic article pointed out. https://www.motherjones.com/politics/2019/02/nra-russia-maria-butina-putin-crimea/ Mother Jones has uncovered a trail of activity showing that during the same period when top NRA leaders welcomed Butina into the fold—meeting with her extensively in Moscow and the United States—Butina actively supported Russian President Vladimir Putin’s military takeover of Crimea. In the immediate aftermath of the invasion and annexation in March 2014, Butina denounced retaliatory sanctions by the Obama administration and traveled to Crimea to promote the arming of pro-Russian separatists. Her efforts there included pledging support to a leader of a militia group that violently seized a Crimean news outlet it deemed “pro-American” and swiftly repurposed for a Kremlin propaganda operation.
  6. Just a question/comment. I would certainly to defer to your expertise.
  7. Lansky and Siegel were childhood/young adult friends and partners of Frank Costello and Charley Luciano. Hard to believe that affiliation did not carry forward in later years.
  8. Obviously Seth Rich planted malware associated with Russian intelligence agencies on the DNC computers, months if not years before he stole the emails. https://www.buzzfeednews.com/article/jasonleopold/he-solved-the-dnc-hack-now-hes-telling-his-story-for-the
  9. Q, really? I know Q Anon is held in high esteem by many on this board, but it's just deranged nonsense, meant to fool the rubes.
  10. Just found JFK under newly added on Hulu, if anyone interested. I haven’t seen it on Hulu or Netflix for years. Just FYI. I like to watch it sometimes.
  11. As far as whether this is Russia Gate, here's a key line from the piece: According to a source close to the Mueller investigation, the special counsel’s office had declined to pursue the case, even though it would have clearly fit under its mandate.

  12. I've got to tell you, after hearing Michael Cohen's testimony -- all of which the Southern District of New York can corroborate -- I'm coming around. No way somebody of the President's honesty and integrity would have colluded with Russia to win the election. It's just so out of character for him.
