Absolutely.

They conspired to obstruct justice. Mueller wants names and details regarding their participation in this conspiratorial, illegal act. That's his goddamned job - to get to the bottom of everything that's been illegally transpiring with regards to the Trump campaign's collusion with Russia.

Whoopsie.

You almost* have to feel bad for the staffers who haven't lawyered up at this point, because they're not going to get 1st or even 2nd string legal minds helping them.

Their only real option is to roll early.

*not really, though.

I'm a little nonplussed by all this attention to this single event. It should be a sideline on a much bigger picture, or at least I'd think. Because they're focusing so much on it there's a sense of keyholing the whole business. Is this all they have?

I'm going to agree, slightly. While it's good to see the investigation is still going, I really want to see FBI vans infront of the White House, escorting a bewildered Donny Two Scoops, a stoic Ivanka, and a yelling and teary-eyed Half-Scoop that is yelling that this is all a setup.

I know it's very likely not going to happen, but it's always nice to exercise the imagination.

Mueller has a relatively large group of lawyers, many of which specialize in financial crimes.  This is one of the few things that is actually public because they are interviewing people (who then blab about the interview) rather than reviewing tax documents and corporate filings (which don't talk to reporters).

They are building a portfolio of wrong-doing and this is only part of it.

See, this is why the 'Any day now' meme doesn't work to make fun of this, despite what Drew's Friends would have you believe.

'Any Day Now', in regards to Benghazi and But Her Emails, was a meme because despite all the investigations and speculation, there were never any new farking developments that were anything resembling noteworthy.

But in this investigation, we get new information, and new bombshells (often right from the Trump clan's stupid pieholes) damn near every day.

Yet another case of "conservative" cargo cult "humor".

Serious question. How does Mueller keep investigating this, when it seems like new things are needing to be investigated faster than he can finish investigating the old stuff? At what point does he say "Fark it", and quit investigating new issues and focus on the old?

It's all one thing. It's a tapestry, and each thread they pull leads to another. The fact that there is such a quantity of threads, and they're all so tangled together, is a testament to the stupidity of the criminals being investigated.

You hear phrases like "a trail of evidence". In Trump's case, it's a 6-lane highway of evidence, with flashing neon signs up and down its length.

It wasn't an attack, just giving you some advice. If you're really tired if this, don't engage the content.  It is pretty simple.

Also your first sentence sounded like "hello fellow libs", as you complain about the coverage of an important investigation that not just liberals actually care to keep informed about, Rick Wilson for example.

Given your response I continue to be skeptical about the sincerity of your original post.

I think this is a point of weakness Mueller can exploit, like the "third rate burglary". There are records of people committing obstruction and other crimes already in the public domain.

And Mueller's been given free reign to go after any and all illegal activity involving the Trumps that might pop up. Even if, some way, somehow, there's no proof of collusion, there's a million other skeletons in their closets (most likely business related) that Mueller will happily go after.

I can just see mueller in his office now with the doors locked rummaging through various papers quietly exclaiming... "noo they can't be that stupid can they? I mean seriously we're talking about someone able to win the office of the presidency, he and his family can't be this stupid. I mean a bunch of idiots like this can't just fumble their way into the Oval Office, sure he had help but come the Fark on, Putin is good and has resources but even he isn't a miracle worker."

Would I? No, but I don't swing that way, in my personal experience through the years I have come to the realization that no matter what you look like or how much of a douchbag you are someone, somewhere is willing to give you a blow job.

Might not be a person you WANT to give you one, but there is always an offer on the table.
