    Mueller's office has taken over the existing money laundering case against Felix Sater a Russian born US citizen with deep ties to the Russian mob, the Russian government, and Trump. Why would Mueller do this? Mainly because Sater is likely the key to proving Trump's links not just to money laundering but also for transfering money from the Russian government into Trump's pocket.

    Report: Mueller Looking Into Flynn Role In Seeking Emails

    Special counsel Robert Mueller is looking into what, if any role former national security adviser Michael Flynn may have had in a private effort to obtain Hillary Clinton's hacked emails during the 2016 campaign, according to a new report in The Wall Street Journal. The Journal previously reported that an effort to seek out hackers who were believed to have obtained the emails was spearheaded by Republican activist Peter W. Smith. Smith had reportedly named Flynn as an ally in these attempts. This is just another prong of Mueller's larger ongoing investigation into potential coordination between Donald Trump's presidential campaign and Russia.

    That won't go anywhere, probably won't even get a vote in the House. Besides, you don't charge a representative with obstruction for introducing a bill, even a stupid one.

    The goal is clear enough to me. Sure, it probably wouldn't stand up in court but that doesn't mean he didn't have obstruction of justice as his goal.

    They don't even pretend to give a fuck any more.

    That's interesting and all, but I'm not sure what it's got to do with the Mueller investigation. :unsure:

    Long post with a lot of legal jargon, but a pretty good explanation of how the original draft of the Comey termination letter might implicate not only Trump but also Vice President Pence in an obstruction of justice case.

    That would be great and all but then we would be left with President Paul Ryan. :vomit:

    Sorry. The chicken is still getting vomited up. :vomit:

    Also it is really unlikely dems will get control of the Senate much less the house. The map is completely against them while the house has been gerrymandered to hell and back.

    I dunno, if some representative introduced a bill to lower the age of consent to zero, or to legalize spouse murder for elected representatives, I'm guessing he'd be receiving a visit from the cops sooner or later. :clyde:
