Mueller deposes Priebus, Bannon, Gates. And they're naming names.

The Hounds are inside the West Wing now, pissing and sniffing around.

And it sure smells like obstruction of justice.

Jared Kushner is next. Then Don Jr.

Then the Orangutan.

So with today's indictments we are up to 15 indictments and 2 guilty pleas. Mueller is collecting some scalps. The noose seems to be getting smaller.

There will be pardons given before it goes that far.
My question is regarding Mueller questioning Trump. Do you think he would ask any questions that he already knew the answer to, to try and catch Trump making and unintentional mistake, I.e. a perjury trap? I know cops are allowed to lie when interviewing a suspect.

If you tell the truth, you can't commit perjury.

Pardoning criminal defendants to avoid a criminal indictment would be a clear case of obstruction of justice.

So you support Trump behaving in such a manner?

Don't forget that Trump can only pardon federal offenses. Mueller has been working with the New York AG on this for awhile. State charges can not be pardoned by the President. Mueller is convening all the bases.

Damn snitches anyway, trying to save their own skin. But not G. Gordon Liddy. Remained loyal to the end and then some, did his time and never complained.

Remember that noose parkhawk was talking about?--

Mueller Tightens The Noose, And Breaks Rick Gates

Hours after Mueller brought new charges, Manafort’s business partner is pleading guilty—and likely turning state’s evidence

New York Times/Vanity Fair
Less than 24 hours after Robert Mueller filed a new 32-count indictment against Donald Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort and his deputy, Rick Gates, Gates decided to plead guilty, joining Michael Flynn and George Papadopoulos in turning state’s evidence in exchange for leniency.

The breaking of Rick Gates represents a dramatic escalation of Mueller’s probe into alleged collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia.

While the White House previously said it was unconcerned by the possibility that Gates would sing, the former campaign official was present at several critical junctures of the Trump-Russia affair.

As deputy campaign chairman, Gates was on board during Don Jr.’s Trump Tower meeting with a Russian lawyer, as well as for the campaign surrogates’ meeting with Russian officials during the Republican National Convention, when the decision was made to change the language in the official Republican platform to make it more sympathetic to Russian interests. And he remained on the Trump team throughout the transition period, when Jared Kushner and other campaign officials made contact with Russians, including Ambassador Sergey Kislyak and Vnesheconombank Chairman Sergey Gorkov.

In the new charges, Mueller accused Manafort and Gates of orchestrating a decade-long money-laundering scheme in which they allegedly lied on their income tax returns and committed bank fraud to secure loans.

While they did not directly involve the Trump campaign, the fresh charges indicated that Mueller was ratcheting up the pressure on both Manafort and Gates to cooperate with the F.B.I. in the ongoing investigation—an effort that clearly paid off. Both former campaign aides faced de facto life sentences for the charges, according to Patrick Cotter, a former federal prosecutor in Chicago. “This is pretty raw criminality,” Cotter told The Washington Post. “According to the indictment, these are two fellows on a multi-year tear of lying to every bank they could find about their income. To a federal prosecutor, it’s fairly crude. It’s extensive and bold and greedy with a capital ‘G,’ but it’s not all that sophisticated.”

Manafort and Gates were first indicted last October on 12 counts, including conspiracy against the United States, conspiracy to launder money, and failure to register as a foreign agent, among other charges.

But the new indictment provides greater detail of what prosecutors characterized in the filing as a multi-year plot to live lavish lifestyles in the United States off laundered income from consulting for a pro-Russian political party in Ukraine. “Manafort and Gates generated tens of millions of dollars in income as a result of their Ukraine work.

From approximately 2006 through the present, Manafort and Gates engaged in a scheme to hide income from United States authorities, while enjoying the use of the money,” the indictment reads. According to the 37-page court filing, more than $75 million flowed through the offshore accounts set up by the former Trump campaign members, of which Manafort—with the assistance of Gates—laundered more than $30 million. Gates allegedly obtained $3 million of the sum, which he also concealed from the United States government. (Manafort has pleaded not guilty.)

Perhaps most notable, and unlike Mueller’s previous indictment, the new filing outlined criminal behavior that occurred while Manafort and Gates worked on the Trump campaign. After Manafort joined in March 2016, he and Gates allegedly engaged in fraudulent behavior to secure bank loans. And according to the indictment, Manafort lied on his tax filings about whether he had offshore accounts as recently as October 2016, while Gates lied about his offshore accounts as recently as October 2017.

Observers of the Mueller investigation have compared it to the former F.B.I. director’s takedown of the notorious Gambino crime family. “Mueller’s doing a rollup just like he did with the Gambinos,” former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon told Chris Whipple in a book adaptation recently published by the Hive. “[Paul] Manafort’s the caporegime, right? And [Rick] Gates is a made man!”

Gates is a weenie for pleading out. This whole investigation is a result of sore losing Democrats. Still no "collusion". BTW what's the penalty for colluding? Hilldawg should be indicted for paying for that stupid dossier, if that's not collusion then I don't know what is.

Imzy logic:

Annoyed for holding someone accountable for their actions, thinks that hiring a PI is collusion.
