Which means Mueller now has either corroborating testimony, intercepted audio, or all of the above confirming that D2S and his whole farking rotten clan are dirty as fark.

Time to flush and jiggle the handle, twice, just to make sure the turds all get washed away properly, for good.

"Federal investigators working for Special Counsel Robert Mueller are keenly focused on President Donald Trump's role in crafting a response to a published article about a meeting between Russians and his son Donald Jr., three sources familiar with the matter told NBC News.

The sources told NBC News that prosecutors want to know what Trump knew about the meeting and whether he sought to conceal its purpose."


Whoa.

Yeah that bit there says to me that--however the investigation goes for D2S--Donnie Half-Scoop is faaaaarked.

If they were not inquiring about that, then I would assume the Mueller Team has been trapped by Houston flooding and can't get to work right now

if we're getting leaks from the Mueller investigation than we may be further along than previously thought.

the leak is a shot across the bow to Trump, telling him not to try anything stupid with the investigation or they'll dump the rest.

I've thought all a long that the FBI bugged that meeting and that was what Trump was complaining about back in February.

You need to understand that Trump has no idea how to use technology, which is why he never writes, receives, or sends his own emails. Ironically, his technological incompetence is making it longer to pin any sort of a paper trail directly to his ass. Fortunately for us, everyone ELSE in his campaign left an enormous trail of breadcrumbs, complete with neon lights and flashing sirens.

So, assuming that Mr. Mueller's investigation reveals absolutely undeniable proof of willful criminal behavior by Donald J. Trump, at what time do the Republican leadership in Congress announce their deep concern over the findings while doing absolutely nothing about it?

FTFY. The real question is what House and Senate Republicans will do when that happens. (I do not consider it a foregone conclusion that their response will be ¯\_(ツ)_/¯.)

The FBI had Carter Page bugged at Trump Tower for 6 months before the inauguration. He was the target of the initial FISA warrant.
However, now, all signs point that they stumbled onto recordings of Uday to go along with the email chain he thought he could send out to clear his name.
However this shakes out, I think Uday just screwed himself out of Two Scoops's will.
And the whole time, we thought "I'M ERIC!" was the dumb one.

At point, it doesn't matter to a single Trump supporter.  Trump could call the army to enslave all American women so they could be impregnated with Putin's ejaculate spit into a test tube by Trump on national TV and all Trump supporters would yell their support.

They never get better, they only become worse.  Just imagine how bad they will be next week.

A leak like that, at this stage, is probably a smoke signal to anyone close to the case letting them know their time is short and they'd better come clean while there are still deals to be made.

A pardon before a conclusion of guilt may be seen by some as obstruction..... which may require additional pardons....more obstruction... more pardons....aaaaaaah the universe explodes

It's great that they are collecting all of this damning evidence but the question remains as to what if anything Congress will be willing to do with it once Mueller makes his case.

Sit on it until soon before next November and see which way the wind blows with GOP voters.

This is so 3 weeks ago. The higher priority question now should be did Trump know that the letter of intent that he signed to develop a Trump tower in Moscow was part of a quid pro quo understanding that his lawyer had negotiated with the Russian government in exchange for that foreign power helping him get elected President?

You know, it is popular to say this about Trump supporters, that they are following along with all this shiat and simply don't care. I think the reality is that most of them voted for Trump in November and simply have tuned out from politics since. It can be easy to get locked in our little bubble on this site and forget that most people do not pay attention to politics at all, let alone on a daily basis.

If you listen to Republicans congress people they say their constituents simply never bring up Russia or Trump's scandals. And on this I believe them. But I think the reason is less that they know about it and don't care and more that they are ignorant. Sure, that may be a fine distinction, but it is an important one.

Congress will do fark all. As others have pointed out, to the Republican base Trump can do no wrong. They'll scream he was framed. What the Republicans in congress have yet to realize is that the Republican base hates them as much as they hate the Democrats.

I keep wondering what it's going to take to make the base turn on him.

You cannot pardon co-conspirators. Doing so is tantamount to obstruction of justice. You cannot pardon your way out of a conspiracy.

Didn't Bush Sr. do something close? Besides, Republican President Trump can do whatever he wants, obstruction or not, because the Republican Congress won't do shiat to him.

I say this from personal experience, btw. Some of my inlaws are Trump supporters. The most they know about a political issue is the guy with an (R) next to his name will try to outlaw abortion. They vote for that guy and move on with their lives until the next cycle.

Similarly, I have liberal friends who are the same way. I was speaking with a friend over the weekend and she had no idea there was a special prosecutor investigating Trump. No idea what is going on with this Russia stuff; not details, not broad strokes. Zilch.

Basically, most people regardless of ideology don't really follow this stuff.

Yep.

McConnell refused to even hold a vote to confirm Garland for that vacant Supreme Court seat for nearly a goddamn year.

I have no doubt that the GOP Congressional leadership is perfectly willing to stonewall justice and erode trust in the rule of law for political gain.

The other part of that question is, since the tower deal was nixed a year before Trump was sworn in, what was substituted in it's place?

If it was lifting of sanctions or the reported Roseneft deal then that ups the anti quite a bit.

I'm not so sure about that. The question of whether he can pardon himself is an open one. I don't see why he couldn't issue a blanket pardon to himself and all of his co-conspirators. Sure it would be political suicide, but could he do it and avoid prosecution? Possibly.

They're all dumberest.

Seriously, any lawyer will tell you:  don't talk.  It's the one thing this damned clan simply can't do, they don't know how to shut the hell up, especially their dear leader.  There's digging your own hole, and then there's taking out the excavator and ignoring anyone who tries to warn you that you don't know how to use it.  Think of how many times Trump has buried himself with his own words, and how he continues to do so unabated by any past experiences of having buried himself.  If that isn't the dumbest of the dumb, then I don't know what is.
