Recently, Republican lawmakers like Ben Sasse and Mitt Romney have forcefully condemned Donald Trump. But for every Romney or Sasse, there are 15 GOP Reps willing to completely debase themselves for the president.
The signs are mounting that special counsel Robert Mueller may soon be issuing a report with the findings from his investigation which has been going on nearly two years.
The past week was a very eventful one for Mueller and his team of investigators, and there were several clues that their work may soon conclude with a final report to the Justice Department (DOJ).
We haven’t heard from Michael Cohen or his attorney lately, and in many ways the silence has been deafening. The former Trump attorney has not been on Twitter or on television or anywhere else in the media for weeks.
Rick Gates on Monday took the stand in the federal fraud case against his former business partner, ex-Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort, testifying that he committed crimes while working for Manafort.
Tad Devine was the top strategist for the 2016 presidential campaign of Senator Bernie Sanders. Thursday it was announced that he will assist in the special counsel office’s prosecution of Paul Manafort, Donald Trump’s campaign chairman for five months in 2016.
On the surface it appears that Donald Trump is winning. He has a unique ability to dominate news cycles and absorb all of the media’s attention through his brash public statements and his tweet storms.
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.
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.
Each time another ex-Trump confidant flips on their former boss and starts cooperating with Mueller, the special counsel gets another building block in its growing case against Trump.
