Oh boy, I bet Spicer and Priebus will be super anxious to throw themselves under the bus for Trump XD

Good thing none of those people have any reason to roll on Trump.

Wow.  A newsflash about the Mueller investigation that actually surprised me. Didn't expect to see those names in the subpoena pool so soon.

This might actually get interesting.

So are these the people the investigation wants to flip? Or are they looking at how big a hole they want to dig for themselves?

"Roughly four weeks ago, the special counsel's team provided the White House with the names of the first group of current and former Trump advisers and aides whom investigators expect to question."

Why do they let them know ahead of time? Why don't they just drop the subpoenas oh their heads when they're ready to do so instead?

Courts have held that the president does not have attorney-client privilege with lawyers in the White House counsel's office, and their testimony about their Oval Office dealings can be sought in investigations.

I did not know that, and that is super interesting.

I'm more interested in learning what crazy shiat Trump tweeted the day those names were provided.

I'm not sure either, seems weird, unless it's them trying to get coaches statements out of them, then blow it up and put them on the defensive, or add it to obstruction of justice/witness tampering charges? Like they testify as coached by Trump on a thing Mueller knows went one way, then they can get them for that?

Boy howdy I'm sure Trump is glad that there is no way Priebus or Spicer feel in any way aggrieved at how Trump has treated them. Also that even if they did that neither was ever in a position to know where the bodies are buried.

Who am I kidding? They are both good soldiers who will recognize that keeping Trump afloat is better for the party in the short term than sinking him.

The outer edges of the spiral have been looked into, the curves have been assessed, now the inner turns are being scrutinized and the bigger names are starting to be questioned. Soon enough, Mueller will reach the center of the spiral -- and I think we all know who's down there.
 
2017-09-08 06:34:44 PM  
Hope Hicks? One of the newest additions to the administration who's not seen on camera much, even though she is the communications director and a former model?

I'm thinking that maybe these people are already being watched and they already know the answers to a lot of what they'll be asked. They let them know ahead of time in case any panic and want to flip, giving them time to do so. Or, they let them know and watch them stew. Watch the reactions. They're obviously being scrutinized already, anything they do between being notified and the actual questioning could look like the behavior of a very guilty person. They may even catch one of them being extremely stupid and trying to get rid of evidence or something.

"The Administration" is not the same thing as "Donald Trump".

At this point I would think Mueller already has the answers to the questions that he is going to be asking. something about cards and all of them.

This is most likely a "we have some specific information we are after, but lets start with a long talk about what you did to establish a baseline.  Lets also get you to tell us a bunch of stuff that will pin you down when you have to answer some tough questions."

How much time did you spend with Donald Trump during the campaign?
Oh, you were with him all the time.  Then why are you saying you did not know about that thing he did since you already said you were with him all the time?

dumbobruni: I had a much better headline.


That's what they all say.

Back to the news flash: I want to have hope that people who have done illegal things will actually get jail time here, but what's stopping them from lying, screaming "IT WAS ALL MEEEEEE!" And falling on their proverbial swords?

Remember: party over country is how these people operate.
