Hey, underwerks! Remember your thread from yesterday? link According to one of Trump's lawyers, who's name we know quite well, Manafort was totally a mole.


A lawyer for Paul Manafort, the president’s onetime campaign chairman, repeatedly briefed President Trump’s lawyers on his client’s discussions with federal investigators after Mr. Manafort agreed to cooperate with the special counsel, according to one of Mr. Trump’s lawyers (...)
Rudolph W. Giuliani, one of the president’s personal lawyers, acknowledged the arrangement on Tuesday and defended it as a source of valuable insights into the special counsel’s inquiry and where it was headed. Such information could help shape a legal defense strategy, and it also appeared to give Mr. Trump and his legal advisers ammunition in their public relations campaign against Mr. Mueller’s office.


Ammunition against the person investigating him? Is that wise?

If the President had ordered this to be done, he would be prosecuted.

It seems though that a Lawyer of a third party (Manafort) passed on the information. That Lawyer should be charged with something.

As far as the President is concerned, it was information passed to him, (if it was, and no proof of that) and I would imagine, considering the source, he would have known he was being played.

That is what this is, an attempt to play The President, now, watch it backfire!

ETA. Additionally it was not verifiable and The President would not have been able to use it because he would not trust the source and so it was useless information. So many traps set, and not one has caught anything other than those that set them.

Ok? What laws were broken? And what are the penalties for breaking those laws?

While Mr. Downing’s discussions with the president’s team violated no laws, they helped contribute to a deteriorating relationship between lawyers for Mr. Manafort and Mr. Mueller’s prosecutors, who accused Mr. Manafort of holding out on them despite his pledge to assist them in any matter they deemed relevant, according to the people.

Mueller is angry because someone used the laws to their benefit? Oh my.

I'm not seeing the problem. Everybody wants to get a heads up if they are going to be interviewed for anything. But then again, this is a witch hunt after all.

I enjoy the work Trump's doing, but I never expected him to play clean with these people.

You don't go by the rules when the opposition is making up accusations, paying false witness to fake stories to send you and/or your friends to jail.

Can't fight gas with water.

Got to love the spin on this one. Basically no law was broken but let's just go ahead and pretend one was. What in the hell is wrong with journalists these days? Are they all that mentally simple?

This is called obstruction of justice. Trump's lawyers are now in hot water themselves if this is true. They should have reported this attempted sharing of investigation material with the DOJ immediately.

I have no idea if this is true and can be proven, but if so, even if Trump is innocent he just screwed himself royally.

Please explain, I'm curious what do you mean by saying "laws can be applied, layfully"?

Do you agree that if Trump's lawyers knowingly took information from Manafort or his lawyers that can from the investigation that they committed a crime?

You really should read the source material you are commenting on prior to commenting, otherwise you may end up looking like you don't know what you are commenting about.

Ooops too late.

BJ is prone to emotional outburst, as all leftist are, they never read beyond the title and first paragraph, a failing proving to be there downfall and reinforces my view that they never think critically, just too literally.

"...they helped contribute to a deteriorating relationship between lawyers for Mr. Manafort and Mr. Mueller’s prosecutors."

That's rich. Muellers prosecutors have thrown the book at Manafort, and are intending to put him away for life (if they can), unless he "composes" information they can use again Donald Trump. I am sure the relationship with Manafort's lawyers and Mueller were quite cordial before this...not.

Let's see, should we continue to play with the donkeys that want to stomp us, or should we cosy up to the elephant that just might/maybe pardon us if we can provide some good intel for his own battle against the witch hunters? Hmmm...doesn't seem like a really tough choice.
