Not news that a second grand jury was formed in DC.

Two is not "multiple". Try moar.

Maybe I'm thinking of Claude Taylor then? Back in May or so, one (or both) of them claimed that grand juries had been/would be convening in EDVA and SDNY.

It makes sense. If you first are looking at election tampering, and then you realize, "Hey, there's a LOT of money laundering going on here" it makes sense to bring in experts and tackle both issues, and maybe a third if there's evidence of, say, drug or terrorism connections, or organized crime connections.

Mueller is peeling an onion, and keeping a team focused, so that ANOTHER team can focus on the new stuff, that's the intelligent way to go. Rather than bring a single laundry list, he's can ding away at legal defense with multiple charges that will have to be defended separately...

So much nothing. This is seriously the largest collection of nothing I ever seen.
It's quality nothing, too. Let me tell you - this nothing is the best nothing anyone can imagine.
Stop! you're going to say, We can't take any more of this incredible nothing.
You're gonna get sick of nothing, there's gonna be so much of it.
The whole world envies our nothing - nobody has nothing like us!

Anyone can spend all day twittering about likely events and then crow about being "right" whenever something kind of similar to one of your claims gets reported by a real reporter -- especially once confirmation bias wipes out all memory of all the claims that never go anywhere.

It doesn't make you a reporter, it doesn't mean you have inside information, and it doesn't make your devotees any less pathetic.

I know it will NEVER happen, but you just put the thought of an OJ style police chase involving AF 1 and a trailing military jet with a dashboard cam in my head.  This is why I like farking with beer.

How many investigations are going on against him now?  I seriously lost count.  I try hard to not have to step into a courtroom, it looks like he's going to be doing nothing but that for weeks on end when he gets back.

I like to think of her as Twitter Nostradomus.   Throw enough shiat against the wall, some will stick.  The true believers will discard the 80-90% that doesn't come true/stick to the wall.

I would consider her a "cold reader, talk-to-the-dead" type grifter than a journalist, and I've been suckered into most my visits over there via farkers for the past six months.  She's not new to me at this point.

These grand juries are not after Trump at this point, they are after people lower down in the organization. Mueller is trying to use the threat of criminal prosecution to make people sell out Trump. It'll be really interesting when a bunch of them either come up with severe amnesia and then get convicted of obstruction and then have their sentences commuted (Scooter Libby). Trump knows that he can promise commutation and he will start commuting sentences. This will drag out for years with appeals. Trumps endgame is to delay it for as long as possible.

cold reader. that's a good comparison.
she also reminds me of the people who make many predictions about many volatile stocks then cherry pick the luckier guesses into "evidence" of their market beating brilliance.
