No the Manafort trial won't end today. The defense hasn't even called their witnesses yet.

Looks like the prosecution is wrapping up their case. Only two witnesses remaining. This is moving fast. We might have a verdict next week.

not sure how many witnesses the defense has. but I'd have to think it couldn't be many. so yeah they will probably wrap it up next week. I wouldn't think the jury would be out too long either. Unless they have a ringer in the bunch. Which in this political climate is very likely.

I'm starting to think the enormity of their crimes are beginning to finally get some daylight and things are gonna get somehow faster.  Nunes flat out admitted massive conspiracy.
Collins was another tip of the iceberg scenario.  Rich white guys don't get arrested unless they farked up big time. Trump is also noticeably mentally deteriorating by the day, no idea what it would take for his own party to stop him, they are riding the blabbering madman right off a cliff. I should smoke more weed.

She's in love with money. All that matters to her is unlimited wall st power and lower taxes. She once said on her show that she wasn't there to tell the truth she was there to protect Wall st.

Nah, I picture him just being completely indifferent to the whole situation.  He doesn't enjoy it, he simply could not care less.

He likes to brag when people who he feels have wronged him suffer some indignity.  Let an NFL'er get plugged by The Man and he'll be at his most boastful boorishness.

That's how farked up our world is.  The US farking bombs kids on a bus and it's not even a ripple in the news.  If this was Obama - or even Bush - it would be front page and a major scandal.  For Trump it's "yeah, of course he did, nobody expected him to do anything different."

This bullshiat is becoming normalized because our president is a goddamn traitor, our Congress is complicit, and nearly half of our populace is deranged enough to not care about dead kids whether they're shot at school in the US or bombed to death overseas by our military.

The defense should call Trump as a witness. He'll be sure to show them this has all been a big misunderstanding.

If there's one thing that "both sides are bad" on, it's the military industrial complex. Now, note that I didn't say "equally bad", but still shameful either way.

1) Blowing up that bus may well inspire the next Bin Laden.

2) Even if we could demonstratively prove blowing up this bus took out a future terrorist who would have set off a nuke in Times Square, it's not even close to atoning for everything else we're doing to future us.

I personally think the best solution would be to stop playing the National Anthem before sportball games completely because they are entertainment, not some solemn event. You don't play it before a concert or a live theater performance.

I don't think it's that, per se, I think we're just so inundated with news, actual "oh god, what has happened now?" news that it's possible that shiat gets lost in the fold. Nightly news only has 30 minutes to cover everything and most of that is taken up by Trump and the many scandals plaguing him. They toss in feel-good stories for the D and E blocks, but that's because if they don't, we'll have mass amounts of depression spreading among Americans who watch the news (or they'll stop watching altogether, and we *really* can't afford an unaware populace)

That and terrible shiat we do overseas takes a backseat almost always. Goes back to the 50s. We really don't like reporting on terrible shiat we may have a hand in unless we absolutely have to (because other non-American outlets are pushing it on A1).

I'm glad that Chris Hayes did do a piece/editorial on it at the end of his show last night. I agree with you that this shiat should be front and center, but so should so many other things that may affect our own citizens immediately. This will certainly affect us at some point, but not for another decade, and maybe they'll just go after Trump Tower Bahrain or something. It'll just be empty condos that some oligarchs bought up to launder money through, not like anyone will actually be living in the damn thing.
