That was an interesting read. If I had a story to tell and was facing ~25 years to not tell it, I'm not so sure I could "stay strong."

The Trump administration poses a unique threat to the rule of law.

Seriously, how long are we going to let this go on?
 
2017-06-21 07:29:46 AM  
That might be what's got Trump in such a panic lately.

Probably until it collapses under its own weight, seems like not enough people are ready to stand up to it so...on it goes.

Conjugal visits? Not that I know of. Minimum-security prison is no picnic. I have a client in there right now. He says the trick is: kick someone's ass the first day, or become someone's biatch. Then everything will be all right. Why do you ask, anyway?

Thanks for the newsflash. Louise Mensch already told us this a full month ago, but most of you say she never gets anything right and is a crazy person.

It's a case which, if wrongdoing occurred, must be investigated methodically and proven with zero doubt.  You can't half-ass a bloodless coup.

Louise Mensch is a right wing troll and Trump supporter. She "changed" her views in December.

To turn state's evidence is for anaccused or convicted criminal to testify as a witness for the state against his associates or accomplices.[1] Turning state's evidence is occasionally a result of a change of heart or feelings of guilt, but is more often in response to a generous offer from the prosecution, such as a reduced sentence or a favorable location for serving time. In particularly high-profile or dangerous cases such as organized crime trials and other federal crimes trials, witnesses may be offered immunity from prosecution even if they have committed serious crimes themselves, sometimes even murder. The state may also offer the witness a place in the witness protection program, giving them a new identity, so they need not fear retaliation from their former accomplices.

Have you followed her Twitter feed? She kind of is a crazy person.

She basically throws shiat at a wall to see what sticks, then when one of her claims turns out to be true, she responds to everyone that reports it, saying I KNEW FIRST I KNEW FIRST.

That sealed indictment of Trump is going to be released any day now, right?

You don't measure a source by how often then get it right.  You judge them by how often they get it wrong and that shouldn't be too f$cking often.

True, although it seems the bloodless* coup happened when the Clementine Conman took the election under false pretenses. This is just correcting the situation, but I agree it can't be half-assed.

My question to that is, how often is she right vs wrong?

You can hit a target once with a full clip, but you're still not very accurate if every other shot missed.

Makes you wonder why Trump was interested in personally contacting Flynn.  So Flynn has 2 choices:

1. Cooperate with the FBI and take a deal, spelled out in a contract.

2. Take the fall, and take Trump's "word" that he will be pardoned.

Really, knowing Trump, is it hard to make the choice.

JimmyTheHutt: Great.  Trump still won't be impeached.


'The only reasonable conclusion to learning Trump colluded with Russia to hack the 2016 US Presidential
election is to no longer elect the president, and leave Trump in power until he dies, which then sees power passed to Butthead.'

Poor Donnie. His whole life he has been able to skate on Dad's money and the US's two tiered legal system (if you are rich you can sue/settle out of almost anything). He didn't (maybe still doesn't) understand that now, as an elected official, his modus operandi and history of shady deals basically means he won't be able to skate provided he isn't smart enough to get caught.

He isn't and neither are the 'Best People" he has surrounded himself with.

This story is only speculating which is the same thing Louise Mensch is doing. 

The only difference, is that the Slate article admits they are speculating, while Louise Mensch doesn't.  

On top of that, She is in fact a crazy person who has argued Putin had Andrew Breitbart killed and wa also behind the Ferguson unrest.

When did rich and powerful people become so enamored of treason. Really. This is new, isn't it? You'd have to go back to The Apostles (English upper-class  twit variety) and Burgess, McClean, Kim Philby, Anthony Blunt and company to find anything remotely similar. At least they had some kind of infatuation with an ideal beyond themselves. The current crowd are simply in it to make more money.

She was arguing with Preet Bharara about how the law works, and came just short of calling him a russian stooge.

That's like the guy in my fantasy football league who drafts every rookie, and then when one of them turns out to be a good fantasy player he brags about his "prowess" in scouting rookie talent.

Russia does actually have people go start shiat at large gatherings, and in high stress areas. Their entire goal is destabilization.

I'm not convinced. Flynn knows full well a pardon or, at worst, sentence commutation would come the day after any conviction.

Prosecutors also tend to be cautious in granting immunity, O'Sullivan said, because "juries hate cooperators" who are perceived as willing to "say anything" to clear their names

Nonsense. Juries convict on the basis of cooperator testimony all the time. I can't even count the number of convictions I have seen where cooperators provide the only direct evidence of guilt.
