Wonder of wonders, miracle of miracles,
Karla effected an intrigue,
Pulled of few strings, and miracles of miracles,
Got George laid above his league!

Bribery works, extortion is quite powerful,
Appeals to values mostly crap,
But it's hard to beat (oh miracle of miracles,)
An old-fashioned honey trap!

She's been vocally defending him and likely has some dirt on what happened behind the scenes. It takes a lot of guts to speak out against an Administration as hateful as the one in office. It would be rather fitting if the "coffee boy" was a key figure in bringing down this shiatshow, and aided by the loud protestations of his pissed-off fiancée.

Although, with this confederacy of idiots, it's hard to tell who is the worst lackey.

I don't understand why she is the one constantly in the news talking about all this, and not him.  Is he under a gag order?  If so... why doesn't that gag order apply to her?

I mean.... if a gag order doesn't apply to your spouse, seems like that is a pretty big loophole in the legal system.

second question, beyond how gag orders work.... what is her strategy behind her talking?  She seems to be trying to make him look like a bigger fish in the media... but to what end?  Does that get him a better plea deal?  Ego?

I just don't get how this all fits together, I guess.  Someone smarter than me hop in here.

Except her employment at the Russian front business lasted less than 90 days and she never got paid.  She is pretty open about how scummy it all seemed.

Georgie boy stalked her on LinkedEn, because he had already worked for the obvious Russian front business in London.

Such a weird thing, what a coincidence that a Trump staffer would have associated with Russian spies years ago...Hillary and Obummer's deep state long game strikes again!

They're not married yet. At least, that was the last that I read. As for him not talking, it's generally not a good idea to have the accused go around defending themselves. For one thing, they tend to say things that are stupid. For another, that's a lot of billable attorney hours to ensure that he doesn't say something incriminating when being interviewed.

Good god, now the genius of Russian mail order brides becomes clear.

We thought that the whole purpose of that was for desperate Russian women to find American assholes who can't deal with women who have choices to marry them so they can get out of the mob-run shiathole that Russia has become.

Turns out, they're all Russian assets insinuating themselves into the ranks of Republican assholes who can't deal with women who have choices in order to turn them into Putin's American stooge army.

Maybe she's just trying to say, "he isn't/wasn't a nobody coffee boy. He was an important members of the campaign."
I know we're all terrible cynics here (me worst of all, maybe), but maybe she loves the guy and is pissed off at seeing him being bad-mouthed by his former colleagues.
Or, maybe it's an ego thing. No way she'd be marrying a nobody. (That's my cynical explanation.)

Their game in general is getting weak. Hell, even the mainstream talking points basically amount to, "they're investigating our crimes. . . which proves they have something against us," and "we would've gotten away with it too, if it wasn't for the deep state illuminati!"

This timeline wasn't their plan.  Russia didn't want Hillary to win, but they did expect her to win. Given that expectation, they wanted her compromised and neutralized.  They wanted to embarrass her. So they gave the Trump campaign the "goods" and (using email gained by hacking that has been confirmed) coerced them to do their bidding. They wanted her to enter office as damaged goods, so that her finger wagging at their activity would be diminished on the world stage.

Why is it that this administration won't criticize Russia? At all? Ever?

Yeah, Trumpers are all back-biting, back-stabbing bastids out for themselves and themselves alone.

But I am surprise at this woman, Russian or not.

She wasn't good enough for Trump? She married the "Coffee Boy"? One of those coffee boys who sit at the Big Boy Table about four places away from the Trumpster himself perhaps and never did anything but get coffee for the Big Boys? That kind of Coffee Boy?

Yeah, right. But the Russians sure do know Trump's type. Well, everybody, even Evanglicals know Trump's type. They have eyes. They can see his exes, his daughters, his minions, his Go To Gal Fridays, his cameo porn movie appearances, coming soon to a news site near you!

I have expressed the hypothesis that Melania is Trump's operator. Either of his ex-wives are also suspects. They are also Eastern European blonde. Cliché but a real thing.

There may be more than one agent in the Trump clusterfark, though. Every Trumper has a Russian love-note in his or her pocket. Poland is the only other country where the USA has gone up in the opinions of foreigners, and that by a significant degree since Trump came to power. It can't be all anti-African American Gentleman racism. They must be getting something they want. Oddly enough, Trump does fairly well in shiathole dictatorships in Africa and Central Europe. Everybody wants a piece of him and he is something they can understnd, a Dictator, an authoritarian strong man, a con-man with superficial and totally meaningless charm which he lays on really thick until he gets what he wants.

He is the type of boss who constantly reassures is completely behind you--until he pushes you under a bus or throws you to the wolves, whichever is more convenient at the time. Of course he badmouths you to everybody he knows, including his billionaire advisors and cronies whom he calls after work. He pits you all against each other to prove who loves him most and who can take the most abuse.

Gaslighter, bully and narcissitic personality disorder sufferer of the paranoid sub-stype.

I have some people like that in my family tree. Some of my family have married into toxic gene pools and to toxic personalities just like Trump.

Mind you he is a very distant cousin himself, but so is Hillary and Bill, so is Barry and Michelle, so are the Bushes. They are all a giant clusterfark.
