I'm getting the feeling that the people we are dealing with here are not that bright.

Twitter was disappointing today, but there's a delayed reaction from him sometimes.

Update: Official White House response to financial records subpoena:

Here's a run down of events involving Trump and Russia if anyone wants to catch up or explore it. Also Myeller is looking into interviewing Trump as part of the investigation.

I wonder if that has any relation to Gates apparently being close to making a deal with Mueller.

https://www.cnn.com/2018/02/15/politics ... index.html

Gates has already spoken to Mueller's team about his case and has been in plea negotiations for about a month. He's had what criminal lawyers call a "Queen for a Day" interview, in which a defendant answers any questions from the prosecutors' team, including about his own case and other potential criminal activity he witnessed.

[...]

The charges against Manafort and Gates center on work they did for Russia-sympathetic politicians in Ukraine between 2006 and 2015. Federal prosecutors said they earned tens of millions of dollars from that work, which they then allegedly laundered through US and foreign companies and bank accounts.

Manafort and Gates were at the helm of the campaign during the critical summer 2016 period when senior campaign officials, including Manafort, met a group of Russians at Trump Tower who had promised damaging information on Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton. They were also in charge during the Republican National Convention when a handful of Trump campaign associates met with the Russian ambassador, and when Trump campaign officials intervened to change language on the platform about the Ukraine crisis.

[...]

The White House believes Mueller is primarily interested in information Gates can provide about his long business history with Manafort rather than activities related to the presidential campaign or transition.


The article notes that Gates is not in a great place, financially. It can cost millions to go to trial for complicated crimes like money laundering.

Gates has told associates he had hoped for outside assistance from a legal defense fund, but deep-pocketed GOP donors have shown little interest in helping either Gates or Manafort cover their legal fees, two sources said.

U.S. Special Counsel Robert Mueller on Tuesday stepped up pressure on two former Trump campaign aides to cooperate in his probe into possible collusion with Russia, unsealing criminal charges against a lawyer for allegedly lying to the FBI.

The attorney, Alex van der Zwaan, the son-in-law of one of Russia's richest men, was scheduled to enter a plea to charges on Tuesday afternoon in U.S. District Court in Washington, D.C.

[...]

The two former aides have been charged with conspiracy to launder money and failure to register as foreign agents in connection with work for a pro-Russia Ukrainian party.

The charges against van der Zwaan make no reference to Trump's campaign or the 2016 election.


Conspiracy. Money laundering. Charges.

A one-time associate of Mueller described the former Federal Bureau of Investigation director as a "boa constrictor," whose investigative strategy involves progressively increasing the pressure on his targets. The associate spoke on condition of anonymity.

A trial of Manafort and Gates is tentatively expected this fall, though recent media reports have said that Gates is expected to plead guilty in the near future. If Gates agrees to cooperate in the probe, that could put more pressure on Manafort and others who worked in the Trump campaign.


It is about money. It has always been about money; secondary is what money can buy.

Trump would never willingly collude with anyone for political gain, because that's outside of the way he is able to comprehend the world. Money. Power. Ignorance Influence.
