The Millipede's Ball

Now come the first criminal charges in the Muller investigation.

​This past week or so we have been subjected to Trump / Nunes / Fox “News” full-out assaults on Clinton (dossier, emails) and Muller (scope and budget). So I think that Jeffie Sessions and Don should demand to find out who leaked to them that indictments were hot in the pipeline……isn’t it obvious by the timing of this full-out assault that they wanted to change the subject and beat up on Muller BEFORE the indictment shoes began to drop.

Step up Leaker Sleuths on the *President’s “team.” Demand to pinpoint the leakers. (Hint: start with your bossman) I suspect that the indictment shoes dropping will turn into a full tap dance routine on all the colluders and conspirators. Time to que up the dance music for some 'hot licks and showing off.'

I suspect that someone from Muller's team leaked the news of the indictments so they could dominate the weekend news, and it worked.

The liberal media is never going to cooperate with the Trump White House, Nunes, or Fox News. Have you been drinking, or visiting DdC?

Like your leader*, I only want the truth. After all, he only tells the truth and nothing but the truth, right Coalman? This train is coming down the track now, so brace yourself for the truth. The bright light is not the end of the tunnel, but a locomotive. Not quite sure why the liberal media should cooperate with Tox News, the dedicated mouthpiece of your addiction. But I have heard stranger things from your cult.

"I suspect that someone from Muller's team leaked the news of the indictments so they could dominate the weekend news"

More likely it was a White House or Congressional Republican or conservative operative leak to devour the weekend news cycle so that Republican plans for tax give aways to the wealthy and defecit financed tax cuts would not be under public discussion. In the same way it is not likely that Mueller will be fired any time soon so to maximize the distractive value of Republican whining about the Russia investigation. Ditto for further Clinton investigations. Already the discussion of the Republican grant of privleged status to banks and credit card companies by shielding them from class action lawsuits has almost completely faded away overtaken by the conservative media (read not only Fox, Breitbart, et al. but all main stream media) focus on the blatherings of Trump and the congressional shills for oligarchy about the Mueller investigation. It is the same old Republican and traditional media tactic of opening a container ship full of red herrings to distract from the real action: making sure the oligarchs business is taken care of.

You guys really need to get a grip. There has been nothing but leaks surrounding this administration since Trump took office. This is no different. It was not the WH. It was not a congressional republican (except for maybe Flake). Mueller is attempting to apply pressure, and leaking the news of the indictments on Friday was designed to do just that.

Of course, the WH wants the talk to be about tax cuts, or the Clinton/Obama collusion...duh! You guys are geniuses.

Excerpts from James Robbins: https://www.usatoday.com/story/opinion/2017/12/04/flynn-talk-russian-ambassador-legal-james-robbins/917714001/

An erroneous ABC News report that Trump had dispatched Flynn to make contact with Russia before the election appears to have caused a massive stock market selloff. The report was corrected, and reporter Brian Ross was suspended. The important takeaway of ABC’s fake news outbreak is that since the Trump team’s outreach to Russia took place after the election, it implies there were no channels to Moscow before the fact. This puts a stake in the heart of the collusion theory.

A CNN analyst speculated that instead of outright coordination, there was an implicit quid pro quo for Russia getting Trump elected. This might be called the “grasping at straws” gambit.

On Sunday, Sen. Diane Feinstein, D-Calif., resurrected the notion that Trump obstructed justice by firing then-FBI Director and Bible scholar James Comey. But again, this is a weak and constitutionally suspect narrative.

The real obstruction might be found in the Mueller investigation itself. The legitimacy of the FBI witch hunt against Trump was further damaged by reports that leading FBI investigator Peter Strzok, who had spearheaded the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s sketchy home-brew email server, was demoted because of anti-Trump texts he exchanged with co-worker Lisa Page, with whom he was having an extramarital affair.

This is hardly an unbiased investigation. If the type of process crime that Flynn was nailed for is all the Mueller team can come up with, it is time to move on.
