RE: The Special Counsel & Trump investigation
On CNN they also said that Mueller had gotten into Trump's finances now. Remember? That's where trump drew the red line...

Also, Mueller is conducting a criminal investigation - collusion per se is not criminal. It is not correct to say that Mueller is investigating collusion. He is investigating crimes...

(03-08-2017 01:56 PM)Shai Hulud Wrote:  The developments unfolded amid a new sign of concern by Congress that Mr. Mueller’s independence needs to be protected. Sens. Thom Tillis (R., N.C.) and Chris Coons (D., Del.) introduced legislation Thursday making it harder for Mr. Trump to fire Mr. Mueller. Under the legislation, a special counsel could challenge his or her removal, with a three-judge panel ruling within 14 days on whether the firing was justified.

If the panel found no good cause for the firing, the special counsel would immediately be reinstated. The legislation follows a similar effort from Sens. Lindsey Graham (R., S.C.) and Cory Booker (D., N.J.)

“The introduction of two bills with two different bipartisan pairs strengthens the message that there is broad concern about this,” said Mr. Coons, who said that Mr. Tillis approached him on the Senate floor about teaming up on legislation.

This is kind of buried in there - so significant. Congress is tightening restraints around Trump.

Need to think of a witty signature.

The comments there are hilarious for the most part. Tongue

Preet Bharara was investigating a lot of money laundering type shenanigans with people who were doing business with Trump and people who are now connected with Trump. Mueller's team has inherited the stuff Bharara's teams had dug up and were investigating. This is going to get interesting.

When I shake my ignore file, I can hear them buzzing!

Well, searching Manifort's place in the middle of the night is interesting. One of Manifort's places. The man has money for more than one place...

How much evidence do you think has already been destroyed though?
