morning all,

I would've used this as the thread link, but there's a tweet from Dana Grayson explaining that the RNC office that was raided last May(?) was an associate of Manafort/Gates' company.

RICO case seems to be getting stronger

Trump: "The top Leadership and Investigators of the FBI and the Justice Department have politicized the sacred investigative process in favor of Democrats and against Republicans - something which would have been unthinkable just a short time ago. Rank & File are great people!"

RICO? Well, none of us want to live forever.

Release the memo.

I am floored by how effectively Trump, the GOP, and Fox have conspired to change the subject from Trump's crimes and general shiatbaggery. There is absolutely nothing in the news this morning but "The Memo!".

You know, the totally fabricated Trump-rescue piece put together by the traitor Nunes, who should be sitting in jail for all the shiatbaggery he's done over the last year trying to rescue Trump.

And we're falling for it. JHC, are we really that stupid?

/shiatbag to the rescue.

dammit, the Springtime for Trumpy headline got redlit for being a repeat. How hard is it to get a good headline a repeat tag?

Donnie has reached the rope bridge near the Temple of Doom.  Meulla is closing in on him from both sides.  He's going to cut the rope.  What he doesn't realize is that he doesn't even have the ability to wrap his leg in the lines and he's 300 lbs so that ancient rope won't hold him up even if he could.

Oh, and Trump's the bad guy, not the good guy like Indy was.  He's basically the opposite of Indiana Jones - fat, out of shape, stupid AND ignorant, and loves Nazis.  But you get the idea.  I'm gonna go get some coffee.

Nothing could possibly live up to the hype generated over the last 5 days, hopefully Monday will be business as usual. I really want it over because the March DACA deadline is coming up and I'm still hopeful for some kind of deal to be made.

If the FBI sees the memo today, does that mean six more weeks of investigation?

Thank God Nunes was in charge of this. He both screwed up enough to taint the memo and teased too long so the FBI was able to get ahead of it and say they thought it was garbage.

Sing the Indy theme song in your head.
Now instead if "duh duhbduh duh", hear it as "deep derpderp derp" and picture far Trump in a suit running over the hill chased by dozens of naked Muellers, pausing to bend over and catch his breath, then attempting to run again while holding a comically large bag of money with a $ on it.

How much is in this darned memo?  it's only 4 pages long.  the first page is eaten up by all of the headings and official statements.  Unless Nunes wrote the thing in high school crib sheet font, I don't know how much this dumb thing can cover.

There is no way this memo lives up to the hype, regardless of what it says. The GOP should continue the propaganda that "it's bigger than Watergate" instead of releasing it. There's more traction in the secrecy surrounding this memo.

 So when do the western democracies call it for what it is. War.
 This is the new battleground, if you guys let the GOP continue the fight, you've already lost.
 If you can't get it together and form a united defense, I hope you like borsh.

yeah i've thought about what would happen if, at the last minute, Trump objected to its release. I think his base would not be pleased. On the other hand, once they read the contents and realize there's not much there they're going to be pretty pissed anyway.

I'm convinced it's going to be a very bad day. Trump will release the memo. Faux News and the RW Derisphere will take up the rally cry against Rosenstein. A few hours later Trump will fire Rosenstein, which will prompt Mueller to unleash a torrent of indictments, and the FBI to go into full political warfare against Trump.

By evening we will be in a full Constitutional crisis.

Trumpanzees are idiots.  They'll have this memo read to them and interpreted by Fox News. They'll be told what to think.
Honestly, Trump would be better off stopping the memo's release, and pulling back slightly on his attacks against the our intelligence agencies. Per 538, Trump has risen slightly in the polls. He may lose a few Forever Trumpers, but he'd gain a few "independents" from acting a little less unhinged. He needs more than his diehard base to win re-election in 2020.

Apparently the focus is about FBI abuse of of the FISA system for political ends.  It will focus on a claim that the FBI used the Steele dossier to wiretap Carter Page.   So the case will be made that:

1) the Steele dossier is by extension, the Clintons manipulating the FBI
2) Carter Page is by extension Trump which means Trump was right about Obama ordering Trump to be wiretapped
3) The whole thing is a mess and a political witch hunt and FISA court system is being misused to hurt the American people.
4) It will recommend a new special counsel to iinvestigate Obama/Hillary/Comey/Rosen​stein/Mueller and/or it will request the immediate replacement of Rosenstein and Mueller

That it is bullshiat is irrelevant.  Four pages is just about what I would expect.  3 pages of background detail and 1 page of sanctimonious bullshiat conclusions/recommendations.
