Have you seen the Brennan Dossier?

Have you seen the Brennan Dossier?

https://washingtonmonthly.com/2018/09/19/trump-should-be-more-worried-about-the-brennan-dossier/

Early last August, an envelope with extraordinary handling restrictions arrived at the White House. Sent by courier from the CIA, it carried “eyes only” instructions that its contents be shown to just four people: President Barack Obama and three senior aides.

Inside was an intelligence bombshell, a report drawn from sourcing deep inside the Russian government that detailed Russian President Vladi­mir Putin’s direct involvement in a cyber campaign to disrupt and discredit the U.S. presidential race.

But it went further. The intelligence captured Putin’s specific instructions on the operation’s audacious objectives — defeat or at least damage the Democratic nominee, Hillary Clinton, and help elect her opponent, Donald Trump.

Trump to storm victim, "At least you got a nice boat out of the deal."

He also joked with a family who had a large yacht they didn’t own wash up against their house. “At least you got a nice boat out of the deal,” he told them. “What’s the law? Maybe it becomes theirs.”

And he was caught on camera telling a person to whom he had just handed food to “have a good time.”

After a briefing on the recovery effort in North Carolina, Trump helped hand out hot dogs and chips at a Baptist church in New Bern, a riverfront city that experienced severe flooding. The president leaned over and checked in with people as they drove through to pick up food.

“How’s the house?” he asked one person. “You take care of yourself,” he said.

NYT 9/14/18 Trump, Mr. Manafort "refused to 'break' -- make up stories in order to get a 'deal.'"

Welcome to the President’s Rat Pack, Paul Manafort

Pardon us, but was it only three weeks ago that President Trump expressed “such respect” for Paul Manafort, his former campaign chairman and freshly minted felon, who had refused to cooperate with the special counsel’s office and took his federal bank- and tax-fraud conviction like a “brave man”?

That tribute was meant to highlight the president’s contempt for the decision by his former personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, to plead guilty that same day to his own charges of bank fraud, tax fraud and campaign-finance violations. Unlike the weak Mr. Cohen, Mr. Trump wrote on Twitter, Mr. Manafort “refused to ‘break’ — make up stories in order to get a ‘deal.’”

On Friday, Mr. Manafort broke in a big way — agreeing to cooperate “fully, truthfully, completely, and forthrightly” regarding “any and all matters” the special counsel, Robert Mueller, wants him to.

How many more guilty pleas and convictions will there be in Trumpworld before all this crime starts to look — how can we put it — organized?

Desert News: Orrin Hatch said he believes Brett Kavanaugh, calls accuser 'mistaken'

Hatch said in an interview with CNN that Kavanaugh told him during a telephone conversation
Monday that "he didn't do that and he wasn't at the party" where the incident is alleged to have
occurred, so "clearly somebody's mixed up."

The senator said he thinks Kavanaugh's accuser is "mistaken. She's mistaken something that I
don't know. I don't know her." Asked if he believes Kavanaugh, Hatch responded, "I sure do."

snip

The committee is expected to hear from Kavanaugh and Ford on Monday.

Hatch spokesman Matt Whitlock said during the senator's call with Kavanaugh, the nominee "continued to categorically deny the allegations" and "also suggested to Sen. Hatch that Dr. Ford may have mistaken someone else for him."

*******

How could any woman vote republican? Dr. Ford is just some silly girl who is mistaken and mixed up?

Kavanaugh to Sen. Hatch .. rough quote

"I wasn't even at that party."

Gee, I don't remember any specific party being mentioned so how did Kavanaugh i.d. the one where the victim said she was assaulted at?

Years ago when I was a kid in North West PA in a very middle class neighborhood our next door neighbor was the county D.A. and his brother was Governor of PA, Ray Shafer and he was a class act and a Republican too. Those days are long gone. The GOP's support for such an odious person such as Kavanaugh shows how far they have fallen.

Manafort will cooperate with Mueller as part of guilty plea, prosecutor says

Source: Washington Post

President Trump’s former campaign chairman Paul Manafort is pleading guilty Friday to two criminal charges Friday, under terms of a plea deal that includes his cooperation as a potential witness for special counsel Robert S. Mueller III.

The decision by Manafort to provide evidence in exchange for leniency on sentencing is a stunning development in the long-running probe into whether any Trump associates may have conspired with Russia to influence the 2016 election.

Manafort’s defenders have long insisted that he would not cooperate with Mueller, and didn’t know any incriminating information against the president.

Prosecutor Andrew Weissmann said at the beginning of Friday’s plea hearing that Manafort has agreed to cooperate with investigators.

I just heard on the Stephanie Miller show that Manafort has signed a cooperation deal .....

..... w/ Mueller. LOCK 'EM UP!















Manafort's plea deal includes a cooperation agreement!


Thought for the day. Manafort, "Conspiracy against the United States."

Donald Trump's campaign manager is about to plead guilty to conspiracy
against the United States of America. No way to spin it except for, "What
about Hillary's email server?"

The charges include conspiracy against the United States and conspiracy to obstruct justice.


Dianne Feinstein Acknowledges Having A Secret Brett Kavanaugh Document

Source: Huffington Post

“I have received information from an individual concerning the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court,” Feinstein said in a statement. “That individual strongly requested confidentiality, declined to come forward or press the matter further, and I have honored that decision. I have, however, referred the matter to federal investigative authorities.”

The California Democrat, who is the senior minority member on the committee, had thus far refused to answer questions about the document, which was first reported by The Intercept.

Multiple sources have told HuffPost that the document in question is a letter sent to Rep. Anna Eshoo (D-Calif.) that concerns a decades-old incident involving Kavanaugh and a woman. Eshoo’s office has also declined to comment, saying the letter was considered casework ― and thus wouldn’t be made public ― since it came from a constituent.

Sen. Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) told BuzzFeed Thursday that the matter had been referred to the FBI. The FBI did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
