Indicted: What you need to know about today’s Russia-related FBI indictments

Two members of the Trump campaign, Paul Manafort and Rick Gates, have been indicted by FBI special counsel Mueller; and a third member of the Trump campaign, George Papadopoulos, has reached a deal where he is cooperating with prosecutors.

And Papadopoulos, who many had never heard of, is the real bombshell here. Papadopoulos ties Team Trump to Russia and Hillary Clinton’s stolen emails. It’s a huge story, and Cliff Schecter and I break it down for you. I think this is our best, and most important, podcast yet. You can listen via the box below, just click the orange arrow.

    The week’s opinion piece:

    If anyone has any doubt as to how substantial and how serious this investigation is, just go and listen to Breet Bhara’s recent podcast Stay Tuned with Bill Browder as his guest. You get a first hand account of what Putin’s Russia is like and what the Magnitsky Act is all about and why it was passed with a 92 -8 veto proof majority. If also gives you some idea of where the money that flooded in from Russia to the coffers of trump businesses came from. Of course Putin likes guns. So does the mob.

    Most excellent podcast. I love it when people who know what they are talking about discuss indictments of the mobbed-up gruppenfuhrer. Always good.
    Just a thought, but given the fact that the server that Hilary Clinton had her emails on at home had a better security record and was arguably more secure than the server at state, what the Russians really had to offer had to have been the DNC emails. So why did they ostensibly offer them Clinton emails that they clearly did not have? Why did they arrange meetings with top people like donny jr., Manafort , et al? Why did they involve someone, Papadoploulos, who reported to Jeff Sessions? It’s almost as if this Russian intelligence operation designed to subvert our democracy wanted an extra level of control later on. An extra level of kompramat on as many people in the GOP and any possible future administration as they could have. The dangling of Clinton’s deleted emails had to have been an additional enticement.
    Something they thought would be more likely to bring the desired response.

    Merry Mueller Day. Happy Holidays to gelatinous ooze Paul Ryan. Who re-acted to indictments like the gelatinous ooze that he is.
