Mueller reveals tenuous link between
Manafort charges and Trump

Washington Examiner, by Byron York

Original Article

Posted By:Drive, 7/11/2018 6:40:14 AM

It´s often been observed that special counsel Robert Mueller, assigned to investigate alleged Trump-Russia collusion in the 2016 presidential campaign, has yet to charge anyone with a crime involving Trump-Russia collusion in the 2016 presidential campaign. The biggest of Mueller´s indictments, that of one-time Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort, has no connection at all to collusion. And until a few days ago, it appeared to have no connection to Donald Trump, either. Now, though, Mueller has revealed why he believes the Manafort prosecution is related to the 2016 Trump campaign. It´s a small part, a very small part, of the overall charges

If I´m reading this right, Mueller is admitting that whatever problems existed in the loan applications, they were known to several bank employees and the senior bank official OKed the loans anyway.

So.... tell me again how the bank was defrauded !

I thought Mueller doesn´t leak? Speaking of collusion and screwing cases up let´s go down Memory Lane and see Mueller´s record. Mueller´s handling of the anthrax case, mishandling of the 911 commission findings, screwing up of the Boston Marathon bombing, involved in the uranium One case and last but not least the BIGGIE his acquaintance and working with Whitey Bulger. This is just some of his missteps.

This is what it boils down to; FTA "The senior executive later expressed an interest in serving in the administration of President Trump, but did not secure such a position" So If Wishes Were Horses Beggars Woulds Ride!

Not only does Mueller have nothing, zip, nada - he has less than nothing on President Trump! Epic fail!

Mueller is viscous and a ego manic just maybe while he was head of the FBI he was the one that turned it into a political operation!

That is thin ... real thin evidence. It is thinner than saying that DJT colluded with Putin because DJT put Russian dressing on his salad ... once.

Agree Mueller is getting desperate. He has a $1,000 per hour gig going on and it is starting to look like it is coming to an end. I am not sure what he is afraid of ... he probably has billed enough to pay off the national debt of a small country. Of course there is another way to end it all ... give him a snob-nosed .38 with one bullet in the wheel and tell him to do the honorable thing ... providing he knows what that is.

How many people did interesting stuff that might have gotten them a place on Hillary´s campaign? For a change, questionable things that Hillary had nothing to do with.

Maybe we need a special counsel to check that out?

Is a senior executive approving a loan application that may have had some numbers problems illegal? It may not be a great business practice but that´s an internal business matter. I will bet such things happen frequently.

And the big point is this - NO Russian collusion and NO knowledge by Trump or his campaign of the loan issue. Manafort knew the executive´s interest and eventually the executive got an campaign advisory role. It´s likely the campaign knew nothing of the loan process.

Did Manafort get any traffic tickets during his lifetime? Maybe Mueller can look into those.

Very weak. Its all about getting Trump. Mueller is a freakin joke. These types of loans are approved all the time and Mueller knows it. Years ago democrats forced banks to approve millions of home loans to people they knew were not qualified and could not pay their mortgage. This caused the financial crisis and collapse of our economy. Does Mueller remember that. No, he´s a moron. Got it.

This is the most absurd, narrative invention of logic imaginable. To Mr. Mueller for your edification, which you do not care about. ALL bank loans involve an application that are completed by the applicant to the BEST of their KNOWLEDGE, and signed as such. Practically speaking, NO applicant is an accountant, and almost all applications are incomplete, or incorrect, and almost NONE are audited personal financial statements issued by a CPA. The Bank Could have requested an audited personal financial statement, and if they did not, that is the bank´s omission. (Also note here that is not the Bank that is complaining about the Manafort loan, nor has the Bank indicated they were not repaid, or that the loan is in arrears). As for an officer of the bank approving the loan based on their interest in a place in Trump´s campaign, proving that was the reason for the approval, and not something else, is going to be impossible, especially when that officer gets cross examined by Manfort´s team of lawyers. I don´t think I would want to be that bank officer, so I don´t expect that that bank officer will ever show up. What total hogwash, all of this, and that is a severe understatement.

I wonder if the bank´s loan officer overheard seven wrestlers complain about a pervert doctor who sexually harassed them thirty years ago and did nothing about it. Now THAT would prove Russian collusion.

Theater of the absurd. And since Manafort clearly cannot get a fair trial in the DC area, why is it being tried there. Paul Manafort is sitting in solitary confinement while Mueller and Weissmann are out being wined and dined by their DC cronies. And, Tony Podesta (and thousands of others) who apparently committed very similar "crimes" as those of which Manafort is accused, is sitting safely out of jail, not under investigation and with his millions intact. Paul Manafort´s is being prosecuted/persecuted for his brief involvement with the Trump campaign. And that is not justice.

Yep. There was a link between Trump and Manafort. Manafort was his campaign chairman for a couple months.

I got that info for free.

It´s cost Herr Mueller and his goons several million dollars and a year and a half to figure it out.

FTA:"The two Lender D loans are, apparently, the only connection between the Trump campaign and the broad array of criminal activity, some of it more than a decade old, alleged in the Manafort indictments. And Trump himself played no role in it.

Was a special counsel needed for that?"

Of course it was, especially since the special consel´s objective is to remove a duly elected president via a coup.

What I think would be interesting is to find the quid pro quo Mueller expects from the deep state should his coup be successful; a big beautiful estate with 24/7/365 Gulfstream 5 for life or much to his chagrin and similar to the Soviet Union, a bullet in the back of his head.

Nobody sells a narrative better than the left, then get a jury of Trump haters and you have any feeble charge that lands you in prison.

Never, ever under estimate how low these people will sink and how successful they are at doing it. Remember a month ago everyone was sure half of the FBI was going to be thrown in jail. Remember the IRS scandal, Benghazi, Clinton email server and on and on.

We have about 5 or 6 Congressmen taking on the mafia and the rest of the Republicans hiding in a closet, or worse working against us. Although the facts are in our favor the odds are not.

More nonsense.

Once again, this is a fake investigation conducted by a fake investigator and his fake team at the behest of fake leaders and corrupt big-money interests. This is all about unseating Trump through impeachment (a coup) or in the 2020 election.

Had enough? Definitely.

Go after Mueller, his flunkies, and the cronies inside and outside of government that are propping him up. Put them in jail where they belong for doing this.

Given that the origin of Mueller´s supposed "collusion investigation" was a demonstrable frame up attempt by the Deep State paid for by the Clinton Crime Syndicate, nothing that ever comes of it can ever have any legitimacy whatsoever, and everyone already knows this. There has never at any time been any attempt to "get to the bottom" of the supposed Trump-Russia alliance, which everyone already knew from the start never existed. We will soon find out the real reason PDT has been allowing this sham investigation to go on, and we can be certain it won´t be pretty for the Deep State coupsters...

Some individuals, corporations and even agencies of foreign governments gave (not lent) millions of dollars to the Clinton Foundation, and paid millions more to listen to her husband give them private "speeches" (as in "hi, nice to see you...put it there in the bag") when Hillary was Secretary of State and the presumed Democratic nominee for president. But the FBI disregarded that and the fact that Hillary purged tens of thousands of emails apparently because it felt she had earned the benefit of the doubt.

The hysteria greeting President Trump’s summit with Vladimir Putin is something to behold. “Trump, Treasonous Traitor” is the headline in the New York Times. “Treason Summit” is the phrase used in Bustle magazine. President Obama’s director of central intelligence, John Brennan, calls Trump-Putin presser “nothing short of treasonous.” The Daily News cover cartoon this morning depicts Mr. Trump shooting Uncle Sam. There’s a #TreasonSummit hashtag. Dare none not call it treason? We don’t doubt that Russians attempted to suborn our election in 2016. Nor do we doubt that Russia’s election interference was set in motion by the Russian government. We’re not against

Special counsel Robert Mueller is asking a federal court in Virginia for 100 blank subpoenas in the case against former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort. The request was made in a filing on Wednesday. The subpoenas would require their recipients to testify in the U.S. District Court in Alexandria on July 25, when Manafort´s trial in Virginia is set to begin. No further information was provided in the filing, and a spokesman for the special counsel declined to comment on the request. The request comes roughly a month after Mueller filed a request for 150 blank subpoenas. Manafort is facing numerous charges, including tax

The Commander in Chief is in the hands of our enemy!” Cohen wrote on Twitter, using language suggestive of a military coup. (Tweet) Cohen later said that he was in no way calling for a coup. “No coup called for,” he wrote, claiming it unlikely that someone would call for a coup on Twitter. Cohen’s bizarre tweet was similar to one from former Obama CIA Director

When Presidents Trump and Vladimir Putin ended their joint press conference in Helsinki, the punditocracy predictably swarmed all over it like ants around a pile of crumbs. Was Trump winking at Putin? Did he really say he believes Putin more than he believes Robert Mueller about whether Russia interfered in the 2016 election? Former Gus Hall enthusiast John Brennan, off his meds again, tweeted that the presser was “treasonous.” Professional chatterer Anderson Cooper said it was “perhaps one of the most disgraceful performances by an American president at a summit.” Every phrase, every gesture of the event will be picked

San Francisco Mayor London Breed said the streets of her city are flooded with the excrement of the homeless in an interview Friday. Breed, a Democrat who was inaugurated as San Francisco’s mayor Wednesday, urged homeless advocacy groups that receive money from the city to teach homeless people to “clean up after themselves.” “There is more feces on the sidewalks than I’ve ever seen growing up here,” Breed told KNTV. “That is a huge problem and we are not just talking about from dogs — we’re talking about from humans.” The streets of San Francisco are littered with a “dangerous

Whether Democrats realize it or not, the names being tossed as potential 2020 challengers to President Trump are weak. It’s milquetoast. All far too left for the American voter, and all with rigid regional appeal. Who knows who Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ) is outside of New Jersey? The same could be said for Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY). Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s (D-MA) doesn’t resonate outside of the Boston suburbs. And Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA), well, she’s working hard to boost her profile, but she’s running aground with the Bernie crowd. Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) could run again, but his age—and the

President Donald Trump’s comments during a joint press conference with Russian President Vladimir Putin on Monday were “treasonous,” former CIA Director John Brennan asserted. “Donald Trump’s press conference performance in Helsinki rises to & exceeds the threshold of ‘high crimes & misdemeanors,’” Brennan, a vocal Trump critic, wrote on Twitter. “It was nothing short of treasonous. Not only were Trump’s comments imbecilic, he is wholly in the pocket of Putin. Republican Patriots: Where are you???” Trump and Putin fielded questions from reporters at a joint summit in Helsinki following a one-on-one meeting earlier in the day. Trump praised Putin during

A 63-year-old father of 43 children was found beaten to death Sunday afternoon in his home on Chicago´s West Side. The body of John Hearring -- known as Nicholas -- was discovered with head trauma in his upstairs apartment in the 1000-block of North Leamington Avenue in the South Austin neighborhood. Multiple family members confirmed that he had 43 children. Hearring was a long-time resident there and well-known in the neighborhood. "He was the nicest man you´d ever want to meet. I don´t get it. All this killing is so senseless and now they are targeting the elderly," said Gwen Bridgeforth, his daughter-in-law.

Socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is the new darling of the Democratic party. In a recent interview, however, the upstart politico running in a hyper-liberal district in New York did not show command of the issues. Ocasio-Cortez was being interviewed by Margaret Hoover on the PBS show ‘Firing Line.’ Hoover asked very basic, softball questions of the young congressional candidate. In explaining her positions on the economy, Hoover asked Ocasio-Cortez “Do you think that capitalism has failed to deliver for working class Americans?” Hoover cited a currently booming US economy and low unemployment.

JOHANNESBURG — Without ever mentioning President Donald Trump by name, former U.S. President Barack Obama on Tuesday took aim at “strongman politics” in his highest-profile speech since leaving office, urging people around the world to respect human rights and other values now under threat in an impassioned address marking the 100th anniversary of anti-apartheid leader Nelson Mandela’s birth. Obama’s speech to a cheering crowd of thousands in South Africa countered many of Trump’s policies, rallying people around the world to keep alive the ideas that Mandela worked for including democracy, diversity and tolerance. Obama opened by calling today’s times “strange
