Yanukovych was the buffer between the west and Russia. It was neither pro west nor was it pro Russia. The west did a coup to overthrow Yanukovych but Putin annexed Crimea to prevent Ukraine joining NATO.

It was the West that walked out of its agreement to have closer ties with Ukraine, not Yanukovych? Putin invaded Crimea to keep Ukraine from joining NATO? And not to keep Russia's port on the Black Sea?

Wrong; a secret memo from the man Mueller is working for. The man Trump himself appointed to the position. It is very legit indeed.

NATO does not accept a country that has territorial dispute. Ukraine does not give up claim on Crimea. That is territorial dispute.

You'll get it soon when the Sun comes up.

But Ukraine was not up for membership in NATO. There were talks of allowing it a special "observer status." Putin violated the Budapest Memorandum, proving his word is worthless. He wanted Sevastopol, he got Sevastopol. Too bad he can't afford it.

so with the "secret memo" being exposed to protect muellers authority are we going to see the same steps in this case as in flynns case?



In December, Judge Emmet G. Sullivan ordered Special Counsel Robert Mueller to provide Flynn’s attorneys with any and all information that may have been withheld from the case.

Know what happens when the prosecution withholds evidence from the defense?

Ukraine did a coup. The Budapest Memorandum was signed with the pre coup government. The treaty does not extend to the new government post coup.

As an analogy, the US supplied F-14 to the pre coup Iran government, the contract does not extend to the post coup Iran government.

Of course. Disclosing the memo was the first step.

Those e mails reveal Muellers boss is in on it dont they? Woudnt be the first time someone trump appointed stabbed him in the back would it?

Point stands Muellers dirty to begin with. His past prosecutions are evidence of that. SO hwo do we trust a man who has been caught lying to keep innocent men in jail? we cant if you are honest.

Here’s the weird part about this: The Rosenstein “secret” memo revealed in this week’s court filing is dated August 2, 2017. According to media reports, Paul Manfort’s home was raided July 26, 2017. So that means Rosenstein’s laid out the more specified scope and definition of authority for the special counsel investigation six days after Manafort’s home had already been raided.

well now there may be a bit more to this than originally indicated.....



Interestingly, the secret Rosenstein Memo specifically states the “following allegations were within the scope of the investigation at the time of (Mueller’s) appointment” (on May 17,2017) and are “within the scope of the order.” If that’s true, why did Rosenstein wait 3 months to write that memo? Wouldn’t this be something that Rosenstein would want to get into the official record right after making the May appointment? As Manafort’s case unfolds in court, you can bet his attorneys will be asking those very same questions.


The hearing scheduled for today should be VERY interesting.
