    Perhaps they can have the attendees at a maga rally be the jury and executioners. Great ratings!!! YUGE!

    Another swing and a miss for the “Lock Her Up” crowd.

    They also got a text message showing that Sussmann told Baker requesting the meeting and Sussmann stated he was coming in on his own and not in support of a client. The issue is that Durham's team did not make Baker turning over all of his communications with Sussmann prior to the charging decision. They were going off Baker's memory and some notes others made when talking to Baker after his meeting with Sussmann. Durham's team not forcing Baker to turn over all communication or failing to get the phone company to turn over the communications, really hurt them.

    As a general rule, if you charge someone with lying to the FBI, there should be a lie documented somewhere.

    Or you can take the Durham route, and lean on witnesses with threats of prosecution unless they change their story to meet the prosecution's narrative.

    Durham needs to be fired and disbarred post haste.

    Trump is right. Thanks to him, America is going to hell.

    As a reminder, Trump himself started the Russia Russia Russia thing by publicly asking Russia to interfere in our 2016 election by hacking Clinton's emails . . . . and the Russians gave him what he wanted by hacking the Dems that night!

    But, why did Trump think the Russians would help him in the election?

    If Garland thought that these cases had no merit, he should and would stop them. They only proceed with his approval. Including charging decisions. Also, membership in a political party or even donating too that party is also not a litmus test to sit in a jury. That is nonsense. Would it it different if Dems were kicked off the jury for bias and only Republicans were allowed to sit? A Trump voter voted to convict Manafort. So, let’s not politicize this either way. What I had not realized beforehand was that Sussman had told Baker the truth in other statements. I had thought the charge was based on non-disclosure of the representation at all. Goes to show you to judge evidence by what comes out in court and not in the news. That is why witnesses can correct false or incomplete statements without being deemed liars.

    Garland was correct in letting it proceed. He would have been vilified had he not. Conspiracies will still abound.
    Shoddy biased investigative work. Gotta know when to fold em. Unless politics of course

    Correct.

    Mueller did not exonerate Trump for collusion with Russia. (Collusion isn't even a legal term.) He had a lot of evidence that they cooperated. But, he concluded that he had insufficient evidence to prove a criminal conspiracy with Russia.

    And why did he have insufficient evidence? Because of obstruction of justice, the lack of cooperation by Trump and his campaign, and their use of encrypted devices to cover their tracks. This was all described in detail in his report.

    did it hurt them? perhaps they were more interested in billable hours and splash headlines for fundraising than the actual truth

    not to mention the severe limits the AG put on his investigation. look at this, and this only, and ignore anything else you may see no matter how criminal it is, it will not be within the scope of your investigation
