Yow…

Well….with the lenient sentences handed down to Paul Manafort…okay, one lenient and the other about right by the sentencing guidelines…the bombshell news just dropped that a Manhattan grand jury has just indicted Manafort on 16 additional counts…including mortgage fraud along with 12 other felonies…and guess what little Paulie? All of these felonies are out of reach of the corrupt idiot trump whose pardon power only works for federal crimes. Okay, don’t want to sound too gleeful about anyone going to prison for the rest of their lives, but, if any low life deserves it, it’s Manafort…he has been an enabler of the worst of the worst regimes around the world and has been a remorseless criminal his entire life…and it is clear he worked against the US in the 2016 election purely to get out of the 12 million dollar debt he owed to a Russian oligarch and he selfishly didn’t care what damage he did just so long as he “got whole”….so, hey…donnie boy…guess what is going to happen to you when you’re tossed out of office in a year an a half…yep, pardon proof state charges for you and your entire crime family….and then I will be gleeful and do a little dance….impeach…

A blameless life?

Well…not sure if you’ve read about the sentencing of Paul Manafort that took place yesterday and the shock that almost everyone feels for the rogue judge when he ignored sentencing guidelines that would have put Manafort in jail for a minimum of 19 years and sentenced him to only 47 months in jail. The most jawdropping comment that the judge made before pronouncing sentence was that, until these crimes, Manafort had led a ‘blameless life”…a blameless life? What the hell world is this idiot living in? Manafort has been the “murderers lobbyist” for the past 30 years, working for some of the worst of the worst dictators in the world, helping to get people murdered and governments overthrown along with even helping a Ukrainian dictator attack American soldiers during unrest there. So, no judge, Manafort did not live a blameless life and you have just driven another stake into the integrity of the US legal system…and you have shown that if you are a friend of trump, you can get away with anything with just a slap on the wrist. For a little context here…a woman in Texas voted mistakenly…she thought she was eligible to vote but wasn’t…and she was sentenced to 12 years in prison…and a guy who bought legal marijuana in Oregon and took it back to Mississippi is now spending 15 years in prison. Manafort did not deserve any lenience since he continued to commit crimes almost up to his sentencing but this trump loving judge took it up himself to do what he could to de-legitimize and attack the Mueller investigation by this terrible travesty of a sentence. Impeach…

Ruh, roh…

Well…I wonder if the idiot trump is going to continue screeching “no collusion” after the revelations from today? This afternoon, Paul Manafort’s lawyers filed some paperwork in response to Mueller asserting that Manafort continued to lie to him after he agreed to cooperate fully with his investigation…only one little problem with that paperwork…there was one part that I’m sure they didn’t want to expose…and that was that Manafort went to Madrid to meet with a Russian agent to give him internal polling data from the trump campaign…hmmmm…seems to me that this is the definition of collusion with a foreign power to sway the election since this information WAS used for targeting purposes by the Russian troll farms that were all over social media spreading propaganda that helped trump win. I can’t wait for this question to be asked to trump and his cronies…I’ll bet the answer will be that they don’t know Manafort and even though he was the campaign chair, he didn’t really have anything to do with the campaign….impeach this son of a bitch already…geez…

This is what happens when an idiot thinks he’s a genius…

Well…haven’t been watching much news lately, preferring to read print instead but last night I turned on Rachel since there was nothing good on tv and, without cocktails, I get bored pretty easily. It was an interesting show comparing what crimes Nixon was impeached for to what the idiot trump has been doing since he was installed. The conclusion was that trump is much, much worse…attempting to obstruct justice on an almost hourly basis and using the same tactics as Nixon did to subvert the Justice Department. One of the details of obstruction, and written right into the law, is dangling a pardon in front of people who are essential to the investigation into crimes committed by the president…something that idiot boy does on a daily basis and especially in regard to Paul Manafort. With it being revealed that Manfort blew up his plea agreement with Mueller by lying to and spying on Mueller and his investigation, I can see trump sitting in the WH thinking he is the most clever person in the world by getting Manafort to do that…but, Mueller is playing eleventy dimension chess while trump is playing checkers….there was a reason that none of the past few days revelations came out until trump had submitted his answers to Mueller’s questions…Mueller knew that Manafort was spying and lying and he knew that with the coordination between trump’s and Manfort’s lawyers, he had the evidence that trump was committing perjury in those answers…this was all because trump is an idiot who thinks he is a genius and truly believed that he was smarter than Mueller…and everyone who has ever listened to trump knows that is a huge laugh. Today, the dominoes continued to tumble with the pleas of Michael Cohen to many more crimes that he did for trump…and, with 70 hours more testimony, Cohen has given Mueller what must be getting close to being the final nails in trump’s coffin. No matter what trump wishes for, the Mueller investigation is not winding down but speeding up and it looks like the timing of the release of the report should be just when the dems take charge of the House and can use the information to reveal just how big a bag of crooks that trump and his cronies are….and I just can’t wait…impeach…

Manafort is scared of the Russians…

Well…it appears that Paul Manafort is going to jail for the rest of his life by continuing to lie to Mueller in violation of his plea agreement…the first question that popped into my head was why did he make that decision…he knew that Mueller would know he was lying and that it would put him away for the rest of his life, so why is that the better choice? I think the pardon from idiot boy is still on the table…but I’m sure Mueller has that move covered by state charges that can be filed in NY or Virginia…but, I think there is more to it…I think Manafort is scared of the Russians…after all, there have been at least 5 murders of Putin’s opponents in just this past year, and he has shown that he can get to anyone, anywhere so maybe it’s self preservation on Manfort’s part…if he gets out of jail alive, he knows way too much about Russian oligarchs for Putin to allow him to roam free….or, maybe he’s just as dumb as the rest of the liars that infest the trump orbit and thought he could continue to lie and get away with it? Whatever the case, another idiot goes to jail…it won’t be the last….impeach…

Manafort has flipped…

Well…not sure how long this one is going to be but I just wanted to acknowledge that Paul Manafort has flipped and is now going to work with Mueller to¬† fill in the gaps in the trump/Russia investigation, but not just that, Manafort has been in repub politics since back in the Reagan administration and has seen all of the scams and lawbreaking that has happened in the past 40 years by the repubs…but, more than that, he saw all of the conspiracy that got trump installed as president even though he was only campaign manager for 4 months..but those 4 months were the decisive ones in the election…so, I think Mueller has enough now to charge trump but I also think he is going to continue to build the cases in the methodical way he has done through the entire investigation…and remember that no one who Mueller has charged has walked away from the charges…and trump won’t either…impeach…

Can’t pardon state charges…

Well…as predictable as the sun rising, the idiot trump is already talking about pardoning Paul Manafort for the 8 felonies he was convicted of just Tuesday….you have to remember that traditionally the presidential pardon power has been used to right a wrong or to help someone who is really sorry for what they’ve done and additional punishment would not be the right thing to happen…but, as we can see with trump’s pardons so far, the power is being misused to reward trump’s buddies who broke the law and still proclaim their innocence, as if the law doesn’t apply to them. So, it was with more than a little smile on my face that I read that Mueller has been working with some state AG’s on a contingency plan to have Manafort tried in state courts that are beyond the reach of trump…and, I’m sure this contingency has been considered for everyone else that is under investigation in the trump/Russia conspiracy case. So, idiot boy, go ahead and pardon everyone that is part of your elections stealing scheme…it will just be more evidence of your obstruction and it will make it far easier to put you in jail…impeach…

11-1

Well…have been getting some news on the Manafort trial jurors and the reasons that they couldn’t agree on a verdict on ten of the counts against him…it is a little sick that just one MAGA trump lover kept the rest of the jurors from doing their jobs and convicting on all counts…the hours of voting in the jury room and more hours of the rest of the jurors patiently showing this holdout why they were voting to convict;…but this one trump loving juror kept parroting what trump said before the trial started that the only reason that Manafort was on trial was to get to trump and that the whole trial was not “fair”….now this is what trump’s constant bleating about witch hunts and bias in the justice department has gotten us…a poisoned jury pool who puts trump above the law and refuses to convict when the evidence is clear that Manafort was guilty on all counts. With this knowledge, I think Manfort should be re-tried on the counts that were declared mistrials…and the feds need to do a better job of jury selection…if the jurors watch fox news, they should be booted….impeach….

Manafort, Cohen, and trump..oh my…

Well…cripes how many more of trump’s inner circle are going to have to go to jail before the repubs will impeach the son of a bitch? Manafort was found guilty of 8 felonies but the big thing that happened was that Michael Cohen threw the idiot trump under the bus when he told the court that trump conspired with him to break campaign finance laws…a felony and is an unindicted co-conspirator…and guess who the only other one of those there ever was? Yep, Nixon during Watergate….drip, drip, drip….trump’s going to jail…and that is more certain after today…I’m a little giddy that this has all come out…impeach…

Waiting, waiting…

Well…another day, another fiasco of trying to find a doctor and I am getting more and more disappointed with the entire process…but, that’s not what this is about…the waiting is for the Manafort verdict that may be released this aft if the jury can work through the one count of 18 that they can’t agree on…so, is it good news that they have agreed on 17 counts or is it more ominous? With what I saw from the trial, there is no way they can acquit on the tax evasion or bank fraud charges but who knows about the rest of them? We are also waiting for more details in the Michael Cohen case where it has been reported that Cohen is working on a plea deal and will then testify against the idiot trump….after all, Cohen was in on every shady deal and all of the money laundering that trump was involved in over the past ten years….man, I’ll admit I’m a little excited for news this afternoon since trump was involved in exactly the same crime methods as Manafort…and let’s not forget that trump was broke and couldn’t get a loan in the US and the Russians rescued him from another probably bankruptcy….my big bitch is that trump has been doing this crap for his entire career and no one in the justice department did a damn thing to hold him responsible for his crimes until now…hammer time is coming…impeach…
