    Russia Collusion Scandal (aka A Leftist fantasy)

    Thought it was time for its own thread.

    Don, Jr. has hired N.Y. criminal lawyer, Alan Futerfas, to represent him. Futerfas, pronounced just like it reads, [FOO der fahs], has long represented clients such as alleged members of the Bonanno, Colombo, Gambino, and Genovese crime families. This seems like a kind of development.

    But Trump cult members should not worry yet. The Donald makes the best deals, right? If a couple of people, be they family members or not, need to spend a few years in prison to protect "the administration", then so be it.

    Democratic House Candidates Were Also Targets of Russian Hacking

    By ERIC LIPTON and SCOTT SHANE


    https://www.nytimes.com/2016/12/13/u...king-dccc.html



    “It was like I was standing out there naked,” said Annette Taddeo, a Democrat who lost her primary race after secret campaign documents were made public. “I just can’t describe it any other way. Our entire internal strategy plan was made public, and suddenly all this material was out there and could be used against me.”

    .....................................

    Notice the date Dec 2016 and if memory serves I posted this article at the time.
    Seems like a long time ago, doesn't it ?

    I guess by "American people" he means the fake media and lawyers in Washington, all of which are living off his exploits.

    that's quite an email chain being dumped by junior...i guess he figured if the times had it he might as well share with the public...his commitment to transparency is commendable...highly commendable...

    “This is obviously very high level and sensitive information but is part of Russia and its government’s support for Mr. Trump ― helped along by Aras and Emin,” Goldstone added. “What do you think is the best way to handle this information and would you be able to speak to Emin about it directly?”

    Trump Jr. replied, “If it’s what you say I love it.”

    btw the times headline about having the email could have been a bluff...i wonder if junior considered that possibility

    He does not seem like the considering type. This is why a smart, caring parent would protect his family from the dirty mess of politics.

    Apparently there are tapes out there of Donald talking very disparagingly about the intelligence of his sons. I wonder if he will reconsider.

    As Sarah Vowell taught us 10 years ago, everything in American life can be found / described by the Godfather.

    How did Fredo react to his capabilities being marginalized and passed over by his younger brother ?

    Is Jr the flip we all knew was coming ?

    ....................

    Fredo Corleone: I'm your older brother, Mike (Ivanka/Jared) , and I was stepped over!
    Michael Corleone: That's the way Pop wanted it.
    Fredo Corleone: It ain't the way I wanted it! I can handle things! I'm smart! Not like everybody says... like dumb... I'm smart and I want respect!

    The hilariously sad thing to me is, Junior basically admits to committing treason, well brags about it. Silver Spoon baby not sure if it's naivety or arrogance that he truly feels he cannot be touched because of how wealthy his family is. His dad was also a silver spoon baby, so the symptoms just enhance to his generation.

    And still not a tweet out of Pop to protect his son.

    Evidently the FBI was already following this Russian lawyer and the meeting was recorded.

    Question is, how do we fix this ?

    The EPA is gutted PP is gutted, education system is gutted the courts are gutted we have an illegitimate Supreme Court justice
    and we aren't even 6 months into this.

    That puts us 18 months until we can reverse the Congress when at least these people will be held accountable.
    Remember, impeachment begins in the House
    ...

    oh yeah, Health Care- almost forgot about that
    Tillerson ties to Russian oil

    What a fookin mess
