They're waiting for the custom hazmat contamination suits to arrive before they bring him in.

He may have been the only one smart enough to cover his tracks, but my real guess is that he was busy working on the Nazi stuff, like the Mulsim ban and deporting all the brown people, so he wasn't directly involved with the Ruskies.
 
2017-12-11 08:45:29 AM  
It might be that Bannon isn't some great political / criminal mastermind and is instead just some angry, alcoholic, delusional turd who happens to have a platform that enables him to reach lots of other angry, delusional (and I'm sure, in some cases, also alcoholic) turds.

Look, all I'm trying to say is that every time I take a huge shiat now, I feel compelled to call it a Bannon.

Let's be honest, the Nazis and Russians never cared for each other.

Seth Abramson on this today:

"This dovetails with recent discoveries in the "True Pundit Hoax" story (see prior threads on that subject under the "LIKES" tab, above).
Steve Bannon is central to that aspect of the Trump-Russia probe, along with Erik Prince, Michael Flynn, Donald Trump Jr., and Rudy Giuliani."

he may end up being one of the indictments coming out of the DC court where Flynn was arraigned.

if him, Prince, and Giuliani all get indicted...i may just have to take a week off from work and go on a bender.

so, there are likely two groups of indictments, those that dealt with the campaign shenanigoats (Manafort, Gates, Papadopoulos, Kushner, etc.) that will be indicted out of EDVA and those that dealt with the foreign policy shenanigoats (Flynn, Sessions, Prince, etc) coming out of DC district court.

there's probably also a third group that dealt with the money laundering/real estate fraud aspects (Trump family, Trump Org associates) that will have indictments coming out of SDNY. But that's been pretty mum up there so who knows.

I think you're on the right track. I think once we get a couple more indictments out, we can put some truth tables together for the runway traffic separation patterns.

Bannon was a key bystander

All right then. Charge him with malicious bystandery. Very similar to malicious accusery but quieter.

Mueller's team hasn't interviewed any of the major players under investigation that we know of. It would make sense, you want to have the testimony of people who are probably being honest with you as a base before asking questions of someone less likely to be honest with you.

Rumors about Breitbart being murdered.  Maybe he just went drinking one night with Bannon and couldn't keep up. Died trying.

And we have a Monday morning news drop of "what did Trump know and when" for Flynn's lying. I am betting the first indictments for Trump will be obstruction, since that's most relevant to the investigation, then everything else will flow from that.
 
2017-12-11 10:32:44 AM  
Because as scummy and abhorrent as he is, Bannon is probably the only one in D2S' entire constellation of idiocy who has two functioning brain cells working in tandem. And if he truly wasn't involved, he was likely smart enough to see what was going on and make sure to have "cut outs" of his own.

That's my thinking. Bannon was too active in the transition *not* to be eyeball-deep in this mess. Mueller and Friends are working around the edges of the story with the little fish so that the big fish have no room to escape.

HotWingConspiracy: His name never comes up in any of the meetings that are known about. Keep in mind he hated Kushner so he might not have been brought in to that end of things.


think of this as two separate wings of scandals. You have the campaign side with Manafort and Kushner. And the foreign policy side with Flynn/Prince/Sessions. I'll agree with you that Bannon was likely shut out of the campaign side by Kushner (aside from dogwhistling speeches that he likely went through Miller with).

He probably has some hand in the pro-white/anti-Islam Russian deals the foreign policy side was dealing with.

He is also vehemently anti "other countries" he has long advocated that the US should close its borders and stop interfering with, cooperating with or supporting other countries. Developing a shadow relationship with Russia is the exact opposite of what he espouses (not that politicians are ever hypocrites)

True. But for right now it looks like he was smart enough not to be included in all of the meetings, emails, phone calls, and conspicuous ring-suckling at D2S' various gold properties. I have no doubt he knew what was going on, or may even have been helping to direct it; I'm just saying he seems to have been smart enough to keep his name out of it or to have Miller, Gorka, or someone equally venial and stupid acting on his behalf.

2017-12-11 10:52:30 AM  
For what? Cheering?

Bannon is bottom feeding hate Muppet, who certainly helped Donnie select a bunch of entitled and unqualified jackholes to put into office, and who certainly had some idea of who was putting money into pockets, and probably took a few of those campaign dollars and advertising dollars for himself, but Bannon is a political remora. He's a hate whisperer. He's not important enough to collude with. He's nothing but Strum und Drang, and without any real substance, OTHER than being a sponge for bourbon and regret...
