Russian money laundering case settled

It was supposed to go to court this Monday. I wonder if a backdoor deal was struck. Maybe that's why there is all the buzz about indictments.

The French backed the US

when we were fighting for our freedom from England. We just helped them out with Intel that prevented Russia from hacking their election the way ours was hacked. Do you think they will help us fight for our freedom from our Russian puppet? Maybe provide some nice Intel to the press?

Just an observation

There were several significant leaks prior to the Russia investigation getting any traction. Then the investigation seemed to be picking up speed, the leaks stopped, Yates and Clapper testified. Now, Comey gets fired in a transparent attempt to stall the investigation. I don't think the international intel community is going to be happy about this or the person/people who were responsible for previous leaks. I've just got to wonder if the leaks will start up again. I'm betting they will, in a hugely way.

About posts that seem to be complaining that Twitler can't get any legislation passed

They note, quite correctly, that he is in way over his head and doesn't have a clue what he is doing. Imagine how much worse this would be if he was smart? If he really was the Great Deal Maker? As much as he worries me, I'm beginning to think that he is going to turn out to be more bluster than anything else. IMO, as long as we stay vigilant and keep resisting, I think we will be ok.

Anybody want to guess exactly how angry 45 is right now?

That can't be good for a fat, old, out of shape man.

Does anyone know of this would apply to Flynn?

Rule: The U.S. Constitution prohibits retired military personnel and reservists from receiving pay from foreign governments without Congressional authorization. This can extend to receipt of pay from a U.S. contractor or subcontractor for providing services to a foreign government. In 37 U.S.C. 908, Congress authorizes the Secretary of State and Secretary of the appropriate Military Department to approve such receipt of pay. Each military service has implementing directives. Retired personnel and reservists who violate this Constitutional proscription may forfeit pay equal in amount to their foreign pay.

Just wondering.

When, not if, when we get back in power

The first thing we do is shove single payer health care down the repubs throats and be done with it. Health care is a right. Stop treating it like an industry and there will be more than enough money to pay for actual care. Economically, it is much cheaper to keep people healthy then wait till someone has to call 911 and haul them off in an ambulance.

Another Sessions theory

Donnie - Hey, Beau if I make you AG you'll help out an old friend, right?
Beau- What are friends for?

Sessions then intentionally lies about Russian contacts so he can recuse himself. Sessions gets to be AG. He will have to deal with some fall out but he doesn't have to worry about that whole Russia mess and he can tell Donnie it's not his fault.

Watching Rachel Maddow on DVR

and there was an ad for Gorsuch. A woman, worked for him and later the Obama admin, saying the left has nothing to worry about...WTF!!! In Florida? When have they ever run ads for supreme court nominees?

Something Happened In A Classified Comey Briefing That Has Democrats Fuming Jan 13, 2017

...snip...

All Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) would say about the meeting was that Comey “has no credibility.”

Rep. John Delaney (D-Md.) wouldn’t get into the details about what was discussed in the classified meeting, but said many questions remain unanswered.

“It’s hard to comment on these meetings. So much of this whole thing has been handled badly,” he said. “I’m interested to see whether any information comes out about any coordination between the Trump campaign and the Kremlin. I’m hoping at some point we get a final answer on that.”

Rep. Gregory Meeks (D-N.Y.) called the briefing “one of the most substantial” meetings he has ever attended.

...snip...

My bet is they were briefed on Flynn at that meeting. The reason the repubs are silent now is because they've known for weeks about Flynn and had already made the decision to circle the wagons when the story broke.

Does that fit the known timeline?
