They're all compromised. All of the Republican politicians are in deep with whatever Trump is in.

Whether it be with Russia, China, Saudi Arabia, the UAE, Israel, individual oligarchs from all over the world, all of the homegrown corruption in the USA, the NRA, Erik Prince and his merry band of murdering mercenaries, and all of the other high crimes and misdemeanors that the Trump-Kushner Crime Family is globally...

They. Are. All. Criminals.

would have come out with something, anything to stop this freight train of propaganda from barr and the white house.

Instead, mueller, always the repubican first exactly like the every one of the rest of them, remains totally silent; as if the complete and honorable silence mueller and his team maintained during the entire investigation still engenders the respect it deserved even after a known political hack and now complicit criminal like barr misrepresents those findings.

There does come a point where disobeying the law is the honorable thing to do. Rather than allowing the letter of the law to excuse your supposed patriotism and honor.

mueller will go down in history, just like those weak frauds kelly, mattis, mcmaster and all the rest of our hard-nosed no-nonsense military "heroes". LOFL

Instead, mueller maintains radio silence. Just like the fucking political hack he's always been. mueller has no problem going down in history as having gone down for trump. Just like the rest of them.

Excusing them won't change them. This is another coverup just like Iran Contra. And everyone involved who does nothing to stop it, including mueller and everyone on his "team", is responsible for this coverup and the consequences.

When those consequences come it will be too late for mueller or anyone else to do anything about it.

Patriots? Heroes? True Americans? No. Just a bunch of criminals running their scam while we discuss what we can do about it - legally.

25. Maybe not publicly...

But Barr did say during one of his Hearings that Mueller could release the entire report directly to Congress. That might be further reduced to specific Committee chairpersons and ranking members, rather than anyone in Congress. I haven't read enough to know the finer details of the Special Council Law on that matter. Even with a limited number of allowable recipients, Mueller would allow the appropriate Committees to decipher all of the relevant information, and make decisions about pursuing additional investigations and informing the public.

Barr even had a quaint qualifier term he added after he said Mueller could give it to Congress. He said such an event would be...unfortunate. Yes, I imagine it would be very unfortunate that elected officials could review the results of a 2-year investigation into whether dipshit45 is compromised. They might even be able to ascertain if he was a willing sellout, instead of a useful idiot.

And ultimately YOUR reputation is on the line.

If I was in that position and that lying fuck barr told me I could release it directly to congress - it would have been released about 10 seconds after barr said that.

Where is mueller? I guess he's more interested in being a repubican hack than in preserving his supposedly sterling reputation.

Didn't they try to portray barr as having a sterling reputation too?

make it symbolically.

If this was everything Barr said it was, he'd be there. Why didn't anybody ask - "why is Special Counsel Mueller not here with you? Did he not want to come? Was he told to stay away?" I'm still not clear on that one.

62. We need to focus on that

The election meddling and finance corruption is more of an institutional problem than partisan. The extent was especially transparent in MO with the Greitens scandal. His first inclination was to run as a Democrat, but he switched. The corrupt donors in the mix were sometimes agnostic or hedged their bets and they appear in the backgrounds of candidates for both parties. Greitens switched parties when he saw that Koster had a fundraising advantage in the Democratic primary.
We should keep in mind that if HRC had won despite Russian tempering (likely without Comey), there's a good chance we would be on the defensive right now. Regardless of who the intended winner was, the actual winner is naturally viewed as the beneficiary. Despite all predictions and expectations the criminal won most likely with the aid of multiple unexpected variables. Remove Comey, and from our perspective the interference may have had little to no effect. It makes it difficult to ascertain what the desired outcome was without explicit confirmation from all involved.

Rooting out what left us vulnerable to Russian tampering, it's going to require much more than impeachment. Sadly, we are in a pickle worse than we imagined.

16. If you think about it for just a little while--

It is the only explanation that makes any sense of what we’ve witnessed since well before the 2016 election. Over and over we hoped, crossed our fingers and were pretty sure that we had crossed a red line and that the Republicans would stop the madness with tRump. But we were let down time after time. Everything we thought we knew about our Constitution and how things are supposed to work has been kicked in the teeth.

We’ve discussed this until the horse is dead and now we’re simply beating his tired old, beat up carcass. We are left with but one conclusion why nothing has been done to fix things and lots has been done to thwart investigations. There is rottenness from top to bottom, side to side. We’ve found the Achilles heel in our Constitution. If enough members of the three branches work together to throw a wrench into the engine of our great country’s governing bodies, it can be brought to a stop. Evil prevails. Justice is not done. And sadly, we found out some people are above the law.

Unless and until someone or several someones in our three branches will step up and do the right thing, the craziness will continue and the people involved will get away with their crimes. Only the historians will finally tell the truth — maybe long after we are all gone.

17. Rember when Barr tried to block indictments with BCCI scandal in 1991


https://miningawareness.wordpress.com/2019/01/15/bcci-indictment-pushed-for-by-mueller-was-blocked-by-trump-ag-pick-william-barr-in-1991/



“Mr. Mueller indicated to Mr. Rivera and to me as well that they would prefer that our indictment — that we work aggressively on it as much as possible… I received a phone call a little bit before noon on August 22 from Denis Saylor who indicated to me that I was directed not to return the BCCI indictment. And I asked who was directing me not to return it, and he said Attorney General William Barr…” (US Atty Lehtinen)

“As Robert Mueller III, the Assistant Attorney General at the Justice Department now in charge of the BCCI investigation, testified in October, 1991: BCCI was not an ordinary bank. It was set up deliberately to avoid centralized regulatory review, and operated extensively in bank secrecy jurisdictions. Its affairs are extraordinarily complex. Its offers were sophisticated international bankers whose apparent objective was to keep their affairs secret, to commit fraud on a massive scale, and to avoid detection” (“The BCCI Affair A Report to the Committee on Foreign RelationsUnited States Senate by Senator John Kerry and Senator Hank BrownDecember 1992“) https://archive.org/stream/TheBCCIAffair/The-BCCI-Affair_djvu.txt

snip...



BCCI and CIA, excerpt. Notice the reference to murdered journalist Khashoggi’s uncle and to the USSR. Remember that Trump dined, at least once, at the home of Khashoggi’s uncle in NYC : “In the case of BCCI, former CIA officials, including former CIA director Richard Helms and the late William Casey; former and current foreign intelligence officials, including Kamal Adham and Abdul Raouf Khalil; and principal foreign agents of the U.S., such as Adnan Khashoggi and Manucher Ghorbanifar, float in and out of BCCI at critical times in its history, and participate simultaneously in the making of key episodes in U.S. foreign policy, ranging from the Camp David peace talks to the arming of Iran as part of the Iran/Contra affair. As early as the mid-1980’s, sources in the United Kingdom were alleging that BCCI was providing services not only to the CIA, but to intelligence agencies of a number of countries, including the Soviet Union.” https://fas.org/irp/congress/1992_rpt/bcci/11intel.htm

18. A book worth reading

The Outlaw Bank: A Wild Ride Into the Secret Heart of BCCI

The Outlaw Bank goes straight to the corrupt heart of the most spectacular financial scandal in history: the collapse of the Bank of Credit and Commerce International. A riveting mix of Dr. No and All the President's Men, The Outlaw Bank tells the story of the collapse of the BCCI in a unique, revealing - and unforgettable - way. Time correspondents Jonathan Beaty and S. C. Gwynne didn't just report on the BCCI story; from the first tip, they became players in a game of journalistic three-dimensional chess - full of murky leads and shady sources who often were not what they seemed. Through their fastpaced, firsthand account, we are there as Beaty and Gwynne arrange back-channel rendezvous; find a way around government stonewalling; and slowly begin to trace the web of kickbacks, corruption, and cover-ups that spanned three U.S. administrations and ensnared politicians and business figures around the world. The Outlaw Bank shows how the BCCI was more than a bank with a portfolio of bad loans and nasty clients like Manuel Noriega and the Medellin cartel. With offices and agents in every corner of the world, the BCCI had become a clearinghouse for almost anything: political bribes, untraceable cash, guns, tanks - even nuclear weapons. Beaty and Gwynne tell the real BCCI story with all of its amazing detail and mysterious characters. They go inside the mind of Agha Hasan Abedi, BCCI's messianic founder, whose vision of a Third World bank became twisted into a financial evil empire that moved effortlessly across national borders. They show how Manhattan District Attorney Robert Morgenthau and others mounted a massive inquiry - in the face of opposition from the U.S. Justice Department - thateventually led to the indictment of both the bank and former Defense Secretary Clark Clifford. They reveal how they unraveled the BCCI's labyrinth of connections in Africa, Europe, and the United States, and with the CIA - and how their investigation broke through the Washington cover-up that had protected the BCCI for so long. The authors explain why top White House figures in the last two administrations knew about the BCCI's criminal activities yet remained silent as the bank built an empire to service drug dealers. The Outlaw Bank is also the first book to go inside the BCCI's "Black Network", a shadowy organization that handled the bank's most sensitive transactions, including arms sales to Iraq, Syria, and other bellicose nations; stolen military secrets; drug deals; and even terrorism. Beaty and Gwynne show dramatically how the BCCI used the Black Network to export its special brand of corruption to the most powerful circles in countries around the world. Brilliantly detailed and wonderfully readable, The Outlaw Bank is the most authoritative account of one of the largest and most disturbing criminal conspiracies in history. It is also a detective story crammed with spies, mercenaries, and crooked bankers.

24. I don't believe they are all on the dole. I do believe the vast majority are complicit though, and

are protecting the party from Trump (I'm sure Trump has threatened to expose all secrets) and from obliteration due to criminal behavior.

I think they are silent co-conspirators and are going along with a historically horrific toddler in the white house because otherwise the party gets exposed for the hollow, immoral, criminal organization it is. The party may be on the verge of disappearing if the public discovers the truth and I imagine gop officials and some democrats (and maybe institutionalists like Mueller) think that could be a very bad thing.

This may be gamed out/negotiated so that the whole US political infrastructure, public perception, reputation around the world, etc doesn't just blow up. If Seth Abramson is correct -- that the world's oligarchs from several countries conspired to place a puppet in the white house, manipulate an election, and corrupt democracy using media and vast amounts of money -- then we are in uncharted territory. Possible crisis, chaos, vulnerability.

If there's such a thing as a bank that's too big to fail...then this is the political equivalent. As corrupt as the gop and its players are (and as hypocritical, immoral, unjust, arrogant, short-sighted) it may be that TPTB consider the GOP and the RNC too big to fail and will negotiate a soft landing?

Prescott’s father and father-in-law, respectively.

67. Thanks for the info.

I'm not surprised that it was much earlier in that family.

35. I absolutely think you are right. . . .

I believe there were some Dems at a meeting before Pussy Grabber was allowed to befoul the White House at which some of these allegations were discussed. It was reported specifically that Feinstein and Maxine Waters seemed "stunned" afterwards. . . Yep. . . I am SURE 100% of those Repig reptiles is compromised in an ugly way.

And THAT is why Maxine Waters doesn't tolerate anything Pussy Grabber says or does IMHO. . . Of course she must have loathed him on a purely personal level as he is so repelling, but she must KNOW something that we don't. . . .

51. I think with sadness, that there are..

some on our side of the isle that may be soiled also. I think that there is something big and ugly laying under the surface that when the corruption comes to light it may rock both parties. Money has a way of making people make crazy decisions.

54. I feel like I am watching Rosemary's Baby

and she solved the anagram..."All of Them Witches". Yikes! In this case it is "All of Them Criminals" and I am just as scared since "this isn't a dream, this is really happening".

55. Its not so much that they are all in deep in what he and some of the others clearly were

and are involved in rather its more of a case of them willing to condone it for as long as they get what they want.

59. They knew he would be president

They blocked Obama's appointees to everything from federal courts to Merrick Garland on the Supreme Court. They scuttled Obama's jobs plans and sabotaged the ACA and other reforms.

We all thought Hillary would win back then and appoint good liberals to make up for some of this obstruction.

Republicans knew Trump would win even though all the polls showed him losing in a historic landslide. They're totally in on whatever corruption is going on. They've been selling stocks and investments when they were high, knowing he'll do something to cause the markets to dip. Then they buy low. They made out like bandits from his tax cuts and trade policies.

60. To be "compromised" is in their basic nature

The very fact that they are Republicans means they've already been selected because they are individuals who can be corrupted by monied interests.

63. Sadly, I think this is the nature of American politics, now.

We have an oligarchy, which runs the politicians, who are in with the oligarchy (who are international) and other billionaires in other countries.

So I guess our candidate had better be tough as nails, savvy at skirting politics in D.C., and not married to ethics? Politics has always been corrupt and shady, but this is a new level. And it's here. With no accountability, even when it's known. The politicians laugh about so-and-so being paid by the Russians, love it when the White House issues orders to kill investigations, and such.
