On Thursday, Special Counsel Mueller requested 70 blank subpoenas for appearances in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia (EDVA) in the case against former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort.
Rudy Giuliani has many things in common with his boss Donald Trump. They are both loud-mouthed New Yorkers, for example. And another thing is for sure: they both know how to dominate a news cycle.
On Sunday talk shows former FBI Director James Comey completely dismissed and derided the Republicans’ House Intelligence Committee report that said there was no collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia.
When Republicans on the House Intelligence Committee on Friday released a report on Russia’s involvement in the 2016 election, we learned more information about the famous Trump Tower meeting in June of 2016 that takes away any doubt that the Trump presidential campaign colluded with Russia to help Trump get elected.
The name Paul Manafort seems to be synonymous with the Trump presidential campaign and Russian collusion.
But if new court filings by the Department of Justice are any indication, Manafort was known by the FBI to be committing crimes before he joined Trump, and even before Trump announced his candidacy for president.
In August of 1974, on the day that Richard Nixon resigned from the presidency, the Republican National Committee wrote a check to the Democratic National Committee (DNC) to settle a million dollar lawsuit.
You don’t get to be Deputy Attorney General of the United States by being dumb. And Rod Rosenstein just proved how really smart he is.

The president is facing big legal trouble coming from prosecutors and he has equally serious political trouble coming from public opinion, as shown in a new poll from ABC and the Washington Post.

The craziness that comes out of the Trump administration every day is almost too much to keep track of. And his Twitter account still hasn’t been shut down, which should have happened a long time ago in the interests of national security.
In September of 2015, during the early stages of Donald Trump’s campaign for the U.S. presidency, Ukrainian billionaire and steel magnate Victor Pinchuk donated $150,000 to the Donald J. Trump Foundation.
The bad news just keeps on coming for former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort.
Yesterday we reported that a federal judge denied Manafort’s request to loosen his bail conditions, saying he can’t use some of his assets to meet a $10 million bond obligation.
Devin Nunes could be in trouble, and his supposedly safe congressional seat may be at risk due to an issue which has made him famous: the special counsel’s investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 U.S. elections.
One of my friends at Daily Kos just posted some shocking truth bombs about the Mueller investigation. He has a friend who is a consultant to the United States intelligence community and he recently wrote up his comments about what is REALLY going on with the Russia probe.
Special Counsel Robert Mueller's indictment of 13 Russian individuals and three organizations for allegedly interfering in the 2016 U.S. presidential election sets the stage for the prosecution of Americans who may have helped the Russian effort, some legal experts said.
The President of the United States has spent his entire life trampling law, bullying subordinates, disrespecting races different from his and dodging all accountability for his actions. He's about to learn that karma has a way of righting wrongs and humbling the most powerful of men.
Special Counsel Robert Mueller is closing in on Donald Trump, and like a wounded animal, Trump is doing everything conceivable to survive. Trump has returned to his familiar playbook of lies, distraction, and distortion to delude Americans and shift the searing light of suspicion from himself onto Hillary Clinton.

The president has conducted himself like a criminal throughout his campaign and presidency.
Robert Mueller, the special counsel investigating possible ties between the Trump election campaign and Russia, is expanding his probe to include a grand jury investigation into former national security adviser Michael Flynn, three sources told Reuters.
