Are we still speaking of legalities here?

Compromising information is a vague term.


It's deliberately broad, because of the number of incidents and allegations being looked at by the Mueller team.

Even so, there is no crime called "collusion". It is not illegal. Even if he "encouraged" the Russians to say bad things/lie about Clinton. Again, not illegal. I wonder what they are looking at charging him with? They've gotten two search warrants, and one was a "no-knock" at 6 a.m., so they had probable cause for something.

Any idea what? Money laundering maybe?


eta: I've been listening to some other things, and it seems "espionage" or "agent for a foreign country", is the bugaboo they might be looking at.

(Trump hired a spy for his campaign manager! hahaha. Sorry, couldn't resist.) We certainly do not know that, no we do not.

I'm using the words that President Trump used. Wiretapping in this day and age is a very broad term.


Fine, but "wiretapping Trump Towers" is a not the same as monitoring a cell phone. Also, monitoring a private land line in a private residence that happens to be in Trump Towers, is not the same as wiretapping Trump Towers, speaking of broad terms.



I don't think Twitter allows one to get very specific. But whatever.... If the spying was legal, not a problem.

But, some of those recorded calls likely include Manafort talking to Trump. (Don't worry, I'm sure it was only Trump talking about delicious foods and the ladies tender parts. *smirks*

He could, but why?


To stop to prosecution, which may reveal some compromising information about the Trump Campaign, in its tracks.


If there is something that Trump did that was illegal, pardoning Manafort will not stop the investigation. And Trump could be impeached.


Impeached for what exactly?

If anything significant was uncovered during the spying, it would have leaked long before now.

Nope. It will be over when it's over.

Really how did he obstruct? I would think that would be the focus of an investigation, not Russian collusion...

It is indeed interesting. It's a labyrinth of a rabbit hole. I think there may still be questions over the Comely firing. And why did he ask Comey not to investigate Flynn, and so on. Mueller is being so secretive about any findings thus far. Lots of speculation. From me too. Lots of speculation.

Maybe we can get one of those private prison contractors to add a Penitentiary Wing at The White House. Sounds like prison orange is the new color for fall in D.C.

Welcome to prison Mr. Manafort and company.

Cute. Thanks. I am female. I'm not ashamed of my gender nor do I hesitate to share the info.
Sorry you feel that way. Most people I can tell after a while, but have never really been sure about you, that's all.
No biggie. It matters not,.

Manafort is going to sing like a canary. Trump must be looking for a safe place about now.

There's no loyalty in the Trump oval office. He demonstrated that....many times.

Business as usual ....

This strengthens the investigation. They had to have evidence for the warrants to be issued.

Manifort's in big big trouble already for lying to the FBI.
He is undoubtedly cooperating with Bob Mueller and his team because he's not on trial.

Sure and he probably will. Then he will pardon his son, and his daughter, and his son in law.
Then... congress will impeach him.

It was hypothetical.
IF Trump did something illegal, he could be impeached for committing that crime.... whatever it may have been.
I have no reason to believe that he committed any crime.

Nope.
Nobody in trumps administration knew about it.
If they had it certainly would have been leaked.

Apparently Mueller and his team picked the lock of Maniforts apartmentt and threatened him with an indictment back during that raid on his property in July.
