Paul Manafort

As expected, special prosecutor Robert Mueller filed federal indictments against President Donald Trump’s former campaign manager Paul Manafort and his assistant Rick Gates.

Manafort and Gates were indicted for lying about their ties to Russia and Manafort specifically for concealing payments he received as an advisor to the Russian government.

In other words, Manafort is indicted for white collar crimes such as money laundering and income tax evasion.

Additionally, George Papadopoulos, an early advisor in Trump’s campaign, plead guilty to lying to the F.B.I. about a contact with a Russian professor who had ties to Russian officials.

The indictments don’t mention the time Manafort spent working on President Donald Trump’s campaign for 2 months in 2016. The indictments also don’t mention any collusion between Trump and the Russians.

The charges are the first to result from Mueller’s ongoing investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election.

Some Republicans say the indictments are a distraction from the Hillary Clinton Russian uranium deal that netted Clinton’s foundation $145 million in donations that she did not report publicly as required by law.

The calls are growing louder for Mueller to resign after new developments reveal that he was involved in Clinton’s deal to supply U.S. uranium to the Russians.

“[S]pecial counsel Robert Mueller will never be able to untangle the tangled webs with any credibility and needs to step aside,” the NY Post writes in an article titled, “Robert Mueller should resign”.

    “In the statement submitted as part of the George Papadopoulos case, the FBI describes an email between Trump campaign officials suggesting they were considering acting on Russian invitations to go to Russia.

    George Papadopoulos in May sent an email to a “high-ranking Campaign official” with subject line “Request from Russia to meet Mr. Trump.” The email said Russia was eager to meet with the candidate and had been reaching out.

    In a footnote, the FBI statement notes that the email was forwarded between campaign officials and who wrote they should discuss:

    “We need someone to communicate that DT is not doing these trips. It should be someone low level in the campaign so as not to send any signal.”

    The FBI statement does not explain who the campaign officials were concerned about sending signals to.”

    Sounds like collusion to me, folks.

  • Elevated Soul

    Mueller should resign because he’s a deep state puppet put in place to protect the criminal activity of the Obama & the Clintons. BTW it’s against the law to leak indictments to the media,because one is charged….

    Manafort was arrested for activities prior to him being involved with the President Trump’s campaign. Now of course Alt-Left zombies,will salivate at the thought of this involving President,but no…..Snowflakes are excited about the arrest because they have not done their research.

    Fake News won’t report what I’m about to report but here goes for my TRUTH SEEKERS, who probably already know this: Hillary Clinton paid $12,000,000 for a dossier against then candidate Trump. The info turned out to be lies, such as the lie that Donald Trump had several Russian prostitutes, “showering him golden showers”……Hillary Clinton claims that she was unaware of 12 MILLION DOLLARS being missing from her campaign,but I do digress. The money was paid to Fusion GPS and it also turns out that Obama also paid them $972,000 himself….

    Hillary Clinton used the Secretary of State position to get kickbacks. Bill Clinton was paid $500,000 for a speech by Putin. Putin also paid the Clinton Foundation $145,000,000 in exchange for 20 to 25 percent of America’s uranium. Democrats are stomping and shouting that Russia is the enemy and YET they sell material used to make BOMBS to the enemy.—>Hmmm

    Obama’s White-house was crooked and criminal to allow her to sell uranium to Russia who is friendly with Iran and North Korea…..Obama made &400,000 a year for 8 years., which would have come up to 3.2 million and YET he’s now worth 24 MILLION,yes he was on the take. The Clintons who have never had a business except the failed White Water are worth 200 MILLION……There are so many things that many in that administration could be charged with.

    There is a massive swamp in D. C and the swampthangz dwell on both sides of the aisle and that is the MAIN REASON they are against President Trump.

    In other news that Mueller wanted to distract from….President Trump released the JFK files.I have read some of the files and it has been revealed that Democrat Lyndon Baines Johnson was a KKK member,which doesn’t shock me in the least.The KGB believed that he set up the assassination with the Deep State.JFK was also shot twice by two different shooters,instead of once as has been widely reported.JFK also admired hitler.

    Hitler was alive in 1955 even though he’d supposedly been killed years before.

    FIRST and FOREMOST, HE RELEASE SOME OF NOT ALL.

    2,800 JFK Assassination Files Have Been Released, Others Withheld. The files are among the last to be released by the National Archives under a 1992 law that ordered the government to make public all remaining documents pertaining to the assassination. Congress approved the law, forming the Assassination Records Review Board. It required the government to release all its files on the assassination in 25 years, unless doing so would harm national security, giving the president authority to block the release. President Chump had issued a memo to executive agencies ordering the release of the records. Cump had been urged by his friend and adviser Roger Stone to allow the release. Stone has promoted the conspiracy theory that Kennedy’s vice president and successor, Lyndon Johnson, was behind the shooting, though there is no reliable evidence to support that. It’s unclear whether the files released on Thursday will quell the remaining doubts or add to the skepticism. A Poll found only 30 percent of Americans believe Oswald acted on his own, with theories about other actors ranging from the CIA to the Mafia to Fidel Castro.

    No doubt there are thousands of tantalizing tidbits. But are they true? How do they augment our current knowledge, if at all? Do they somehow help us to answer the larger questions about the assassination? These are questions we should ask as we examine this treasure trove.

  • Mystery comment

    Can confirm about the ‘supposed’ second shooter and location, but I doubt any new JFK documents will reveal any bombshells as the cover up and narrative was invented long ago. JFK admired Hitler’s ability to rise to power and changed the country, but not much else was written on that one page of his journal so I doubt JFK admired anything else of Hitler’s racist ideology or history. LBJ wasn’t a big surprise for me, Democrat southern ‘control’ politics; LBJ strikes me as more of a bigot than a real racist.
    The whole Hitler being alive after WWII is mostly a lie and speculation, no hard evidence of any kind has turned up (that picture is not an older Hitler, completely different person) and the Russian KGB probably made it up since they got ‘rid’ of Hitlers remains. Hitler had health problems which means he would have died not long after the end of WWII anyways.
    This whole Mueller thing can now be confirmed as democratic distraction ploy, since they couldn’t get either Manafort or the other guy on anything serious with an actual “Russian” or spy. Just old corrupt DC politics in a nutshell and Clintons continue to walk unscathed. Interesting to me was Manaforts connection to the Russian uranium deal with Hillary and DNC’s John Podesta but again, its just corrupt politicians doing favors for each other. Sad watching people let their Trump derangement confirmation bias on this delude them into a celebration for a ‘crime’ that didn’t even happen in 2016 but that’s America right now. Waste of time educating people on this as they just want a ‘winner’ and a ‘loser.’

    I still have to go through these papers but many people weren’t aware that JFK was shot twice because I sure wasn’t.

    LBJ was indeed a racist liberal. he said after he fooled Blacks into believing he was their friend, “I will have those n*ggers voting Democrat for 200 years and damn he didn’t already get over 50 so far….

    I actually saw a documentary on ii and in the files just released, there is a picture of Hitler posing with someone.

    The Mueller thing is indeed a ploy. He has indicted Manafort on something he did from 2010-2014,when he moved millions around. Now Tony Podesta brother of John Podesta (Chairman of Hillary Clinton failed 2016 campaign) has resigned because he is tied to Manafort.

    Bottom line is that :No collusion between President Trump,has been proven but much collusion between Obama’s whitehouse has been uncovered.

  • Quitedeliteful

    LOLLOLLOLLOL!!!!!

  • Mystery comment

    Roger Stone is right on LBJ at least being involved in some way and there are witness statements/confessions and interviews that back this up as very credible evidence and with motive. It is highly unlikely LBJ actually planned or initiated any of the events that led to JFK’s death (I think Roger Stone is wrong on this part in particular since he dislikes LBJ so much), though its clear he knew something with the cover up and kept quiet about the huge players/politics involved. LBJ was just one part in a very big conspiracy that is very hard to accept. But for those who want to go down the rabbit hole, just start with the ‘magic bullet/single bullet’ theory. It all eventually unravels from there if you dig deep enough.

  • Mystery comment

    The picture of ‘Hitler’ with a brown south american woman is not Hitler: just someone with similar facial features. Again, Hitler had health problems that would have made living that long medically impossible. He was already suffering severe affects in 1945. The FBI documents and investigation into ‘Hitler still alive’ was based on speculation and no hard evidence, which is why I don’t put too much faith in the JFK record releases. LBJ did indeed say those things but the more I researched random stuff about him the more it seems LBJ did have some genuine concern for poor people and people of other races. Which is why I call him a bigot and not a racist since I don’t think he hated people based on their race. He did and was involved in evil things though no doubt, but its pretty typical of anyone in power no matter who you research long enough. They all have some shady connects. Glad to see your name reflects well.
