I'm hoping that CNN ends up with major egg-on-face.

Another bet on Manafort. Mueller has been zeroing in on him for a while now.

This could be Mueller looking for an easy win, so he can claim victory and wrap up the probe.

I think the fact that there is no leak regarding who it's about yet is a good sign for Trump.

Don't know if this will turn out to be significant or not but Politico is reporting tonight that the realtor who sold Manafort the condo that was raided, testified to the grand jury last week.

Manafort Realtor testified before grand jury in Russia probe


The Realtor who helped former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort buy the Virginia condo that was recently raided by the FBI testified last week before the federal grand jury hearing testimony in Robert Mueller’s Russia probe, POLITICO has learned.

The real estate agent, Wayne Holland of Alexandria, Virginia-based McEnearney Associates, appeared before the Washington-based grand jury after a federal judge rejected the firm’s lawyer’s bid to quash subpoenas for testimony and records about various real estate transactions.

Holland was originally called to testify on Oct. 13, but objected to the subpoenas on the grounds that Virginia and District of Columbia law makes real estate broker records confidential.

However, U.S. District Court Chief Judge Beryl Howell ruled that those confidentiality statutes don’t preclude federal prosecutors from using grand jury subpoenas to demand details of real estate deals.

“The respondents are wrong: the information the grand jury subpoenas seek is not privileged under state or federal law and the government need not make any special showing to obtain these records, nor would production be ‘unreasonable or oppressive,’” Howell wrote in an opinion unsealed Friday. “The language of the District and Columbia statutes...make clear that real estate brokerage records may be produce pursuant to a federal grand jury subpoena without the necessity of an additional court order.”

Because Trump & his heinous hooligans were committing conspiracy with Russian government agents to install Putin's puppet Trump in the White House.

K~


The liberal media has made this THEIR title for the investigation. Mueller is officially charged with finding if/how Russia influenced the 2016 Presidential election.

If he stays true to his mission, Mueller will find that Clinton/DNC worked with Russia to influence the election. Didn't work as planned, but they tried.

Or that it's more FAKE NEWS from America's #1 Fake News Headquarters.

He could no about financial crimes maybe unrelated to russians.

Or who knows maybe even more.

But perhaps Muellers strategy is to a) either get anyone he can for anything even if its not related to russia, or b) charge people in hopes they flip on bigger fish.

He could, at the risk to his business. That's not to say he didn't.

I fully agree to the idea that first come, first served in terms of information forked over.

No, just saying that the longer it goes without all the other outlets jumping on it, the more suspect it looks because it means the rest of them can't corroborate and aren't willing to simply use CNN as their source trusting that CNN did due diligence.

I guess you could give this one a pass. Anyone leaking details could be breaking the law.

The early snow storm in Minnesota is still one of ABC's top stories.

Late October is early for snow in Minnesota? Its not uncommon to get in Indiana so I cant see that one.

You missed the accusations that the Russians used Pokemon Go to influence the elections?


Are you claiming that anything that was reported in that story is false?


I agree the story seemed legit to me, it checked out. There have been other reports of the Russians using Twitter accounts and Facebook pages pretending to be liberal or conservative groups based in the U.S.

Oh wow, this is pretty big news. I'm interested in seeing what kind of evidence there is if that is ever available, also what the charges are and who is charged. I'm glad that Mueller has the authority to get to the bottom of this, wherever it leads.

Recently, I had been seriously considering the idea that although the Russians may have talked to Trump and his campaign, there may have been nothing illegal going on. If I am mistaken, I would like to know and have the people involved held accountable within reason.

Attorney for @PaulManafort tells me neither he nor his colleagues have received any word of their client being indicted.

Mannafort has been looked into for years, I think they would have already found something on him.

I think there is a better chance in Tony Podesta.

That would be a highly tactical arrest in my estimation. The messenger that goes between all organizations and entities involved.
