Does Mueller's mystery case involve VEB?

https://patribotics.blog/2019/02/02/muellers-mystery-case-trumps-worst-news-yet/

"Vnesheconombank also fits the facts as we know it: the entity is a fully state-owned bank, it employs a legal team who have worked in Russian interests before, it will have ‘commercial interests’, it is wholly owned by the state (this detail ruled out Sberbank and Alfa Bank) and ‘Country A’ has argued that it would be required to violate its own laws by complying with Mueller’s subpoena. This could refer to Russian data protection laws making it illegal for Russian banks to transfer data on Russian citizens without their consent outside of Russia, fitting better than the RDIF or the Central Bank."

2. Finally! Real news!

I wish DU had a filter so I could get all the Trump Collusion threads at once without wading through the distractions.

6. Louise - draws in Dems, be careful.

Here is my guess about Louise, who worked for Rupert Murdoch before becoming a blogger.

Some on the right knew back in 2016 that Trump was a criminal and traitor. (If nothing else, McCain had the Steele dossier and source opinions from US intel.) But Murdoch and his donor cronies wanted judges and tax cuts. They needed to pretend everything was normal and fine. So in an effort to prevent people from marching in the streets, Mensch and others started telling everyone that all would be ok because Comey/Mueller had things under control. That Dems didn’t need to do anything - Mueller would handle it. I fear this was a dangerous mistake. But whatever you think of the strategy, it’s worked- not enough Americans think this is a national emergency and the courts are getting packed.

8. Interesting take

I felt she was being fed intel by the IC in an effort to soothe those imbued with sanity that we were not crazy and that yes, Trump was owned by Putin and the powers that be were engaged in a meticulous legal method to deal with. This has borne out. I didn’t consider that her efforts could be to soothe us into submission while the RE agenda unfolds, and as a frequent reader of her and others on Twitter, I think your scenario is unlikely with regard to her intent.

9. I used to think so too- but I'm now wary

Her and “counterchekist” keep telling everyone to just chill out because Mueller has got this.
But now Mueller looks like he may just write a report and ride off into the sunset. And it’s been 2 years of rightwing-authoritarian judges that will decide for the Trunp billionaires.

We are gonna have to win at the ballot box. Trump is a traitor but Mueller is unlikely to save us.

10. Ps I trust John Schindler

I think.
Schindler is anti-Corbyn and now that I’ve seen Corbyn bend over for Brexit I cautiously trust Schindler on this.
Schindler is anti-AOC but I don’t detect any dirty tricks or bad faith there— he just disagrees with her politics.
I also think Claude Taylor is on the correct side, even if he’s a bit of a ball-buster.

Mensch and those other accounts, I don’t trust much.
