Mueller likely is asking Bannon questions that he already knows the answer to in the hopes he catches him lying and then has leverage to get Bannon to disclose more.

Total Nothingburger obviously. My rule of thumb is if the judicial system hasn't found a patsy to place the blame on within the first 3 hours of a crime (even one as minor as a Presidential Manchurian candidate) then its not worth even investigating.




Did you not read, others have already said Watergate went on for 2 years. Also, yes I am pretty sure that Bannon does know something, as does Muller, how that is a "nothingburger" when we don't even know what is being said yet, is a bit of a conclusion.


We will see, sooner than later I hope. Then we can see who made asses out of themselves, either pro or against, Muller.




Watergate had an actual crime to investigate.

Mueller is investigating a delusion.



Remains to be seen.

Funny how every time some news of consequence comes out like Manafort and Flynn charges, the right-wing media comes out with a whole lot of garbage, the Trumpeters amplify this sh*t and Trump deflects over and over.

He is squealing like a pig in its own filth and saying 'look over there'.

Doesn't seem guily at all, oh no, nothing to see here.

I saw gowdy say that he and others couldn't get anything out of him because he laughingly claimed executive privledge today.

Soumdsike he isn't throwing anyone under the bus.

So either he was full of it when speaking of treason, or he is covering for treason now

The net just keeps closing in.



How many times have I read this "net keeps closing in" comment around here? Been reading that comment for a full year here.

And for a full year, the other side has been saying "the swamp is about to be drained" or whatever is that side's equivalent to "the net keeps closing in."

And has either "side" triumphed over the other? No. We ought to stop putting ourselves against each other, and instead hold our "representatives"'in government accountable, on both damn sides.

Perhaps it wouldn't have taken a whole year had Comey been allowed to do his job?

Once Trump fired Comey, in the stupidest mistake ever made, he forced a "re-set" on the entire matter.

This is the first time we've had Bannon summoned, as Mueller does what any good prosecutor does, working from the outside-in, moving steadily up toward the Godfather of it all.

Bannon got his call today, Kushner will be a key coming up.

Funny how everyone here is freaked about the dossier, which will mean nothing about nothing. The collusion will be found in Kushner and Flynn taking data from Cambridge Analytica and giving it to the Russians, giving them the road map for the Facebook ads and bots unleashed upon us by the Russians.

And we have to HOPE that it ends there, because the Russians also at least attempted to hack 39 states' voter roles. The fact that no one here at "Above Top Secret" cares about a country - Russia of all people - hacking into our voter rolls is just sad to me.

But, Trump won't investigate it or do anything because Putin told him he that it didn't happen. Just like Putin said they didn't do anything over Facebook, none of it. Trump says nothing. Sigh. He gives the country away and people give him cover.

He fired James Comey because Comey wouldn't close the Russian investigation. That's according to Trump.

EVEN IF Mueller couldn't prove collusion and money laundering, which he can, but even if he couldn't, you have Trump admitting to Obstruction of Justice in his pressure and termination of Comey.

Moreover, how do YOU know it is a delusion? Do you have ALL the evidence? Have you heard Flynn's conversations with Mueller???

Given that Flynn was given a relatively light plea, you probably ought to worry that Flynn had a great deal to tell Mueller. Moreover, you have Manafort, the prince of rushing around Russia for the last 8 years advising Russia on how to sway elections in the west, as Trump's campaign adviser.

Your willful refusal to even contemplate the evidence is telling.

I find it disgusting that so many people in the country feel as if they must be protected from those powerful Russians and their SPAM.

What's wrong... A lack of Self-Confidence? An Inferiority Complex?

Actually there is a good reason that Mueller is having Bannon in front of a Grand Jury, and not talking to the FBI.

If you looked at what happened today in congress, in short Bannon simply stated to them that it was executive privilege and thus they were forced to give him a subpoena. Now his attorney will be present and guiding him through these hearings and ultimately they will get very little from him.

However, as he has been served a subpoena to appear in front of a Grand Jury that is very much different. Once there he is sworn in and can not refuse to answer any question. Nor is his attorney present, he has to answer fully and truthfully. The Jury can ask him any question. And the privilege that would ban him from saying anything, it may not be there, so he has to speak. Refusing to answer any questions could be bad. He can talk to his attorney, but he has to leave the room talk to the attorney and then return. And as the proceedings are sealed, he can not talk or say what all he said or talked about in that, and it will not be released until after it is used in a trial.

The question however does have to be asked, and I say this as someone who does not like Trump, can we trust what bannon says???


Yep. As any Law Enforcement Officer will tell you, some of the best info comes from former gang members who feel they've been slighted or "done wrong." If Trump winds up on him again, it could be very entertaining.

Slowest investigation ever. Maybe they don't want Trump out. They have definitely had time to think about it. Put it off till midterms to really confuse stuff. Then nothing.



Congressman Trey Gowdy said pretty much the same thing tonight. With over 200 staffers and 12 full-time attorneys, why is the Mueller investigation taking so long, while yielding so little?

How long is the average special council case?

How do you know what an ongoing case has yielded? Is required to brief the public?

Today he said nothing. He kept saying he had been asked not to discuss his time with the campaign or his time in the white house invoking executive privlege. He was subpoenaed on the spot to get him to answer but he did not.

This subpoena is from Robert Muellers special investigation and reportedly Bannon and the Whitehouse will not do the same thing.

The subpoena is for Bannon to answer questions from a grand jury. Which is probably a strong arm tactic to get Bannon to agree to a sit down with Mueller instead.

Today's questioning was congress. This new subpoena is from the special counsel Robert Mueller.
