Susan Rice Email Declassified – and It's Just What You'd Expect

Trumpies have been clamoring for years to have Susan Rice’s email of Jan. 5, 2017, declassified. This was a memo the national security adviser wrote to herself to memorialize a conversation in the Oval Office meeting about Russian interference (this kind of memo is a standard practice in government when you want to create a…

Flynn charges could be dropped just as new Mueller documents are unsealed

Remember that DoJ dropping charges against Flynn is being done in the context of a diversion and a pandemic. There are Mueller investigation files being unsealed. With imminent release of #RussiaTranscripts Fox News is already spinning it as raising doubts about @RepAdamSchiff saying there was evidence of collusion. So, here's a reminder: Mueller Report found…

Are we now a Banana Republic?

As of right now, there is one man standing between the total subversion/perversion of justice in this nation and a CHANCE of maintaining some semblance of equal justice under the law. That man is Federal District Court Judge Emmet G. Sullivan, appointed to the Superior Court of DC by Reagan, to the District of Columbia…

Federal prosecutors recommend 0-6 months for Mike Flynn

Mike Flynn gets the sentencing memorandum in the aftermath of his “assistance” to the Mueller investigation. The tune-changing, much like Paul Manafort’s results in a shift in the sentencing recommendation. THREAD: Why are federal prosecutors recommending 0 to 6 months in prison for Michael Flynn? — Renato Mariotti (@renato_mariotti) January 7, 2020 1/ Today federal prosecutors…

Guilty verdict for Bijan Kian, Flynn cohort and Trump transition team member

Bijan Kian (whose name you may also see written as Rafiekian) has been convicted of acting as an illegal lobbyist on behalf of Turkey in that country’s efforts to extradite Fethullah Gulen. He was engaged in this endeavor alongside already-convicted former national security adviser Michael Flynn, while working under the auspices of the Flynn Intel Group. Among…

The John Dowd voicemail. In it's original context.

The release of the John Dowd voicemail audio yesterday was a perfect example of one of the most glaring omissions in the Robert Mueller investigation. Namely, not getting the Orange Julius seated in a chair across the table, answering questions. Forget the input of Trump’s lawyers in answering Mueller’s questions. A written document is exactly…

Breaking! Kellyanne Conway tweets something monumentally dishonest and stupid!

Earlier today, failed standup comedian and even-more-failed human being Kellyanne Conway tweeted this: x BREAKING NEWS! FINALLY!WHITE HOUSE OFFICIAL INDICTED in connection with MUELLER investigation! https://t.co/DuxOLSs5NF — Kellyanne Conway (@KellyannePolls) April 11, 2019 Kellyanne Conway, meet Michael Flynn. Also, Gregory Craig, the former White House counsel in question, last worked for Obama in 2010. He…

This chart of Trump's presidential 'accomplishments' is beautiful

Manafort, Flynn, Cohen, Stone, Papadopoulos, Gates. That’s a lot of people fetching coffee, let me just say. Three more and they’ll have a pretty decent prison softball lineup. They’ll look sharp chasing down ground balls in their ostrich-skin uniforms and top hats, that’s for sure. Anyway, here’s a recent update on the witch hunt and how…

Guess Who's Got To Be As Scared As Hell Right Now?

OK, I’ll deal with this right at the top, because I know how y’all absolutely dote on every golden drop that falls from my fingers to the keyboard. Judge Ellis is a wealthy, privileged, arrogant, half senile dick. Which gives him something in common with Paul Manafort. From pre-trial motions on forward, Ellis showed a…

Who will ultimately bring down Trump? You'll never guess.

It won’t be Michael Cohen. And it won’t be Michael Flynn either. Forget about Paul Manafort while you’re at it, and he can take Rick Gates and Don McGahn with him. Yeah, I know, their faces are all as universally recognizable as Fabio’s pecs, and they all have, like, kick ass stories to tell, but…

Congratulations, Michael Flynn

Sure, everyone is knocking Michael Flynn for having unauthorized conversations with the Russians about sensitive topics, and then lying about it. But look on the bright side! He is (probably) a new record-holder! Everyone wants to make it into the record books, right? So far as I have been able to determine, Michael Flynn is…
