    If PDJT really wants to play the “leverage” game… it’s his turn to roll.

    For each day that passes without wall funding, he’ll release one R & one D name from the List of Sexual Harassers. Those Congressman who used tax payer $ for payoffs to accusers, & need to be held accountable/preferably resign. Eventually all on list will be revealed, but we can drag it out for fun… From the floor: “Rep/Sen __, come on down!”😏

        Added benefit; the PERCEPTION is that all such sexual harrasment is men harrassing women, or men harrassing men, despite LOTS of evidence that sexual harrassment goes both ways.
        Specifically, the # of WOMEN in Congress, who ‘paid out’, and the # of men, who ‘paid out’to male ‘victims’ goes totally counter to the Democratic narrative.

        Look at the # of women teachers, busted for sex with students, for instance.

        Yeah, Flynn left the military in 2014, and decided he wanted to run with the big dogs and start cashing in. This Turkey connection has always bothered me, and I’m thinking Trump was exposed to all this information a couple weeks after he hired Flynn shortly after the inaugural, and summarily dismissed him. Smart move.

        I don’t wish ill will on Flynn, and it’s obvious the Mueller thugs are using him to get at Trump, but that doesn’t mean he deserves special consideration from anybody. He was playing the game, cashing in, and had made too many enemies to be running around recklessly in the White House. Trump can pardon him after this all blows over.

    Monday on Fox News Channel’s “America’s Newsroom,” Harvard law professor Alan Dershowitz reacted to President Donald Trump’s personal attorney Rudy Giuliani saying the president would not sit down for an interview with FBI special counsel Robert Mueller.

    Dershowitz said it appears the investigation into Trump “is over” unless Mueller’s team subpoenas him.

    “I think the cards that were shown yesterday were that this investigation as far as Trump’s concerned is over unless they try to subpoena him and then we have a constitutional conflict because Trump asserts article 2 and other constitutional rights,” Dershowitz said https://www.breitbart.com/video/2018/12/17/dershowitz-mueller-investigation-is-over-as-far-as-trump-is-c

        It sounds like Flynn received documents from Mueller that are “under seal”, and he wishes to file these documents with the Court. The Judge said OK.

        I am guessing these documents were provided by Mueller after the Judge ordered him to give any “exculpatory” evidence to Flynn. That happened when this case was assigned to Judge Emmet Sullivan earlier this year. Flynn wants to file these documents with the Court, presumably as exculpatory evidence.

      An excerpt:

      It’s clear from the timeline that it was Kislyak, not Flynn, who initiated these calls regarding the newly imposed sanctions. From the sequence of events confirmed in Mueller’s indictment, Kislyak called Flynn to ask how the Trump Administration would handle the sanctions; Flynn called a senior transition official (likely Vice President-elect Mike Pence) to discuss the plan; once he was instructed to advise the Russians not to escalate tensions, Flynn conveyed that message to Kislyak. Then Kislyak made it a point to call Flynn again on December 31 to inform him “that Russia had chosen not to retaliate in response to Flynn’s request.”

      Of course, all of this was recorded since Flynn had been under FBI investigation since July 2016 for his alleged Russian connections. The calls were illegally leaked by Obama officials to the Washington Post, leading to weeks of controversy and speculation. James Comey sent FBI agents to interview Flynn on January 24 and Flynn resigned on February 12 amid the growing scandal. The three-star general pleaded guilty to one count of lying to the FBI in December 2017.
      *************
      Although most Americans had never heard of Kislyak before the Flynn scandal, he is well known in official Washington. Named the “diplomat’s diplomat” by CNN, he served as Russia’s ambassador to the United States during the entire Obama presidency. During that time, Kislyak visited the White House more than three dozen times according to visitor logs; his last known visit to the Obama White House was September 2016.

      In 2011, the diplomat hosted “a dazzling dinner in his three-story mansion . . . north of the White House.” The dinner featured “five courses of Russian fusion cuisine for 50 seated guests . . . including senior figures from the [Obama] Defense and State Departments.”
      The guest of honor at that lavish feast was Michael McFaul, who Obama had just appointed the U.S. ambassador to Russia. Kislyak and McFaul appear to be close: In a March 2017 interview, McFaul said he “knows Sergey well. I worked very closely with him when I worked at the White House. I saw him often. I’ve been to his house, I’ve been to his dacha.”

        I’ve thought this for a long time. The Russians wanted the Clintons to win. They had plenty of blackmail material on them. They knew they’d do anything for money, including commit treason. Bill visited Putin’s private resident the day he got $500K for a speech. Of course, also, there’s the U1 scandal. The Clinton Foundation got ~$150m from Russians for that.

        The Russians helped the O admin and Hillary dirty-up Trump’s people in the same way Halper, Mifsud, Downer and others did.

        Remember, Kislyak visited Session’s office when he was a senator. The 2nd meeting Sessions had with Kislyak was when the O admin setup a conference where Sessions was a speaker. Kislyak was there and he and Sessions talked. This was their two meetings in 2016 which helped get Sessions to recuse. (I still think Sessions was the insurance policy. The only way they knew Rosenstein would be appointed DAG and that he would make Mueller SC is if Sessions was in on it or compromised.)

    Hey, Southern District of New York…where are the indictments?

    “Robert Mueller also handed off information he uncovered during the Manafort money laundering probe to prosecutors in New York. According to news reports, he referred questions about at least a trio of other lobbyists—Tony Podesta, Vin Weber, and Greg Craig—and whether they allegedly failed to appropriately register as foreign agents for work related to Ukraine. Podesta abruptly closed his eponymous lobbying firm last year, and Mueller had previously been interested in the work done by Mercury LLC, Weber’s firm, as well as the law firm Skadden Arps, where Craig worked until earlier this year. Skadden Arps also employed the Dutch lawyer Alex van der Zwaan, who pleaded guilty to lying to investigators about his contacts with Rick Gates.

    Status: Rick Gates is cooperating with investigators.

    It’s unclear whether the document exists. However, the Strzok interview file appeared to repeatedly refer to a 302 drafted after the Flynn interview. “Strzok conducted the interview and [REDACTED] was primarily responsible for taking notes and writing the FD-302,” one section said. Another said that throughout the interview, Flynn did not give any indication of deception and only hedged once, “which they documented in the 302.”

    James Trusty, a former senior Justice Department official who now works as a criminal defense attorney at Ifrah Law, predicted Sullivan would notice that the 302 submitted Friday is dated seven months after the Flynn interview took place.

    “Judge Sullivan has a well-established history of taking on discovery issues head-on,” Trusty said. “So providing a seven-month-old FBI 302 is absolutely going to be a red flag for the judge, and I can’t imagine there are not going to be questions tomorrow about whether there are contemporaneous notes, or a contemporaneous report, that is in the FBI’s possession.”

        What you mean “WE”?
        Multinationals and those who profit from creating wealth out of thin air, and then playing craps with it, will be the ‘losers’, as we shift from wall street to main street economy.

        Since these losers were exfiltrating wealth OUT of America, and mainstreet will be keeping it here, “WE” win.

        Over time, D.C. who being thieves, follow willie suttons “go where the $ is” phylosophy, will be more responsive to main street concerns and priorities, because mainstreet has the $, and less concerned with wall street cause they don’t have the $, anymore.
        So, again “WE” win.

        However, what VSG is doing has NEVER been done before, and so its difficult to project what dislocations may occur during the process, especially since its difficult to predict what measures the anti-MAGA crowd may resort to, in attempting to derail MAGA.

    Comey blames Fox viewers for believing the President and downfall of FBI. You can’t make this stuff up. He admitted to leaking to NYT with classified info.

      Wow, If I were an FBI agent, I’d be lobbying for the agency to join the 21st century and buy a few video and tape recorders. These guys appear to be highly paid stenographers.

    Christopher Steele: I Was Hired to Help Hillary Clinton Challenge the 2016 Election Results

    Christopher Steele, the former British spy who prepared the Russia “dossier” that has led to more than two years of investigations into President Donald Trump’s campaign, has told a London court that he was hired to provide a basis to challenge the legitimacy of the 2016 presidential election in the event that Trump won.

    Just thinking about the fact of Michael Cohen, in his plea deal, pleading guilty to a non-crime (a couple of alleged campaign finance violations).

    I have been noticing for a while that Donald Trump has a very ironic sense of humor. In fact, if anyone reading this is older and remembers the late, famous southern comedian “Brother Dave” (Dave Gardner) from the 1960’s, he had that same kind of irony in his humor.

    The fact that President Trump’s mental processes work in this way suggests to me that he will be pretty darn good at re-framing and pushing his own narrative, in relation to these supposed “campaign finance violations.” Because you simply cannot make them what they are not, no matter how you might squeeze and twist at the facts and work “pretzel logic” to your desired ends.

    Come to think of it, I just stated the preferred logic of the “resist” people and the crazy leftists in the press. But it’s going to come up short in the end — this I believe.

    Scuttlebutt is that Haslam will run for Senate in TN to take Alexander’s place. And he would take his place exactly as he was a Never Trump GOPe all the way.

    Of course, the insider, Randy Boyd, got the nod for gov primary and lost Big to Lee. These days the GOPe is loosing at least some of the races.

    Will be interesting to see who runs.

  47. When I text with my friends on the left (hey, it is important to try to understand how the crazies think), they seem to think that Stormy and McDougal are going to bring the president down.

    If that is all Mueller has, and the Democrats in the House run with it, we will have President Trump until 2024. The Democrats trying to impeach President Trump over false campaign finance violations involving a playmate of the year would be better for the Republican party than what they tried to do to Justice Kavanaugh.
