Key Take-Away: Hope Hicks is going to prison. If the allegations as reported by The New York Times are accurate, and they appear to have multiple sources that can corroborate them, she’s not only complicit, she assisted in the destruction of evidence. And she can NOT claim Executive Privilige. Her actions speak to someone that is not only naive, but supremely stupid. I’d be shocked if she doesn’t try to cut a deal. Mueller not only has witnesses, I’m fairly certain, he has tapes of her, emails and other documents.
Key Take-Aways: It is clear that the Conflicts of Interest with this man are pervasive. It will be interesting to see what measures are enacted to avoid a repeat of this. It’s also clear that The IDIOT, his family and his friends are using the Government to prop up a string of failing businesses. Shame on us for allowing this to happen. At the end of this, a lot of folks will have to answer for their actions. It will not be pretty.
Key Take-Aways: You start seeing stories like this when one side is losing very badly. And it’s not Mueller’s Team. Folks in the White House are now at the stage where they will begin to leak stories that paint them in sympathetic lights. They all want a soft landing spot when this shitshow is over. So I’d look for more background pieces like this. The fact that the IDIOT can’t seem to understand that the DOJ doesn’t work for him, but for the American Public has caused him to commit numerous acts of Obstruction of Justice. Either he’s incapable of grasping this or doesn’t care. And having his people go out and make the argument that it’s not really Obstruction because he didn’t go through with the firing, is ridiculous. And they know this.
Key Take- Away: The Superceding Indictments indicates that Mueller and Team have additional charges they have prepared to file against Gates. I’d suspect Tax Evasion and a few others, at a minimum. The Bank records, specifically those from Cyprus, will probably come into play as well. They have have Gates’ wife dead to rights on transferring at least $1 Million to a brokerage account there. I suspect Gates is flipping to protect her.
This is VERY bad news for The IDIOT, Jared Kushner, and Paul Manafort. Gates gives them RICO/Money Laundering on all three, which is Act III. And he helps give cover to Mike Flynn regarding Conspiracy, which is Act II. The patterns of what Mueller and Team is doing is clear, if you know what to look for. It’s also pretty damn methodical and impressive.
Key Take-Away: This is simply a brilliant move. Dana Boente will leave his post to become General Counsel for the FBI. That literally is the largest middle finger Wray could send to The IDIOT and Jeff Sessions. The man that got the ball rolling on #Russiagate and was the lead in leading the first wave of Grand Juries into #Russiagate, will now serve as GC of the FBI. I’m almost certain this move was orchestrated by Mueller, McCabe and Comey. This is simply a brilliant move.
