RussiaGate

Trippy Testimony


cjones01292019

Donald Trump has either lived a life dreaming of being a third-rate mobster or he actually is a third-rate mobster. But, you can’t be a mobster without goons, and guess what. Trump has goons. Enter Rudy Giuliani (among others).

When the Special Counsel Robert Mueller finally issues his report, obstruction of justice will surely be one of the many charges against Donald Trump.

Trump fired FBI Director James Comey, then told Russians and Lester Holt that he did it to end the Russia investigation. Instead, it got him a Special Counsel investigation. Yes, Donald Trump is really that stupid. When you commit a crime, don’t go on national television and brag about it…or tweet it.

Trump has been sending tweets that are attempting to obstruct justice. Part of his obstruction will be witness tampering.

Reportedly, Trump’s team, or Trump himself, was in contact with Paul Manafort’s people after Manafort struck a deal with Mueller’s team. According to Buzzfeed, Trump ordered his former lawyer/fixer Michael Cohen to lie to Congress about the Trump Tower Moscow project. While Mueller’s office issued a statement saying the Buzzfeed story was inaccurate, they didn’t specify which part wasn’t correct.

Donald Trump has also engaged in intimidating a witness. Cohen has struck a plea agreement with Mueller and had volunteered to testify before Congress, again. This time, before a Democrat-controlled committee and not one run by Republican sycophants.

Using mobster language, Trump called Cohen a “rat” for cooperating with law enforcement. Trump praised Roger Stone (another goon) for not cooperating. Think about it. This is a president of the United States attacking people for cooperating with the law and praising others for fighting law enforcement.

After the Buzzfeed story broke, Trump started threatening Cohen by bringing up his father-in-law. Trump tweeted, “Lying to reduce his jail time! Watch father-in-law!” Trump has also claimed Cohen’s wife is involved in crime. Trump might have a point as the daddy-in-law; Fima Shusterman once owned three apartments in Trump Tower, which is a real popular investment for money launderers.

Trump called sycophant Jeanine Pirro on Trump TV (Fox News) and said, “In order to get his sentence reduced, he says, ‘I have an idea. I’ll tell — I’ll give you some information on the president.’ Well, there is no information.”

Trump continued ranting like a lunatic who had just snorted five pounds of Adderall at a bus station, “But he should give information maybe on his father-in-law, because that’s the one that people want to look at. Because where does that money — that’s the money in the family. And I guess he didn’t want to talk about his father-in-law. He’s trying to get his sentence reduced. So it’s pretty sad. You know, it’s weak. And it’s very sad to watch a thing like that. I couldn’t care less.”

Obviously, Trump couldn’t care less.

Giuliani went on CNN and said that Cohen’s father-in-law “may have ties to something called organized crime,” without mentioning any details. It’s getting harder and harder to believe the former mayor of New York City was once a respected federal prosecutor.

On Wednesday, Cohen announced he was withdrawing his commitment to appear because, his lawyer said, of “threats against his family” from Trump and his lawyer, Rudy Giuliani.

Three House committee chairs, Elijah Cummings, Adam Schiff, and Jerrold Nadler released a joint statement saying, “Our nation’s laws prohibit efforts to discourage, intimidate, or otherwise pressure a witness not to provide testimony to Congress. The President should make no statement or take any action to obstruct Congress’ independent oversight and investigative efforts, including by seeking to discourage any witness from testifying in response to a duly authorized request from Congress.”

At the White House, Trump said, “He’s only been threatened by the truth,” which sounds more like projecting.

What Trump doesn’t sound like is an innocent person.

Now, the Senate Intelligence Committee has issued a subpoena for Cohen to testify next month. Let’s hope he doesn’t suffer a Putin-inspired accident along the way.

Just as I was finishing up this blog, breaking news was reported that Trump goon Roger Stone has been arrested and indicted on charges including obstruction, false statements, and witness tampering. This is one I have been expecting, along with a few of Trump’s kids. Let’s hope he has company in the very near future.

RAMa Lama Ding Dongs


cjones01272019

The Saints got robbed.

With 1:45 left in the fourth quarter, and the Saints on the Rams’ 13-yard line, tied 20-20, facing third-and-10 in the NFC Championship, the Saints got robbed. If the Saints had gotten a first down on the play, they could have drained the time left on the clock, kick a chip-shot field goal, and leave the Rams with very little time to march down the field and tie the game. What happened was the Saints got robbed.

A Rams player, Nickell Robey-Coleman committed pass interference on the Saints’ Tommylee Lewis. The referees didn’t see it, despite one of them staring right at it. The entire universe agrees there was a blown call. Even the Rams defensive back, Lewis, admitted he committed pass interference. Lewis said that he “whacked his ass” to save a touchdown. It worked.

Now, in what may have been Drew Brees’ last chance to go to the Super Bowl, has been stolen. The Saints had the best regular-season record in the NFL this season, but they’ll be watching the Super Bowl from home.

A Louisiana eye doctor (in case you’re a Republican, New Orleans is in Louisiana) is offering free eye exams to NFL referees. Maybe he should also offer those to Trump supporters.

Trump supporters believe Donald Trump is doing a great job, he’s intelligent, has their best interest as his top priority, and that he’s a classy guy. Most of all, they don’t believe there has been any collusion between his campaign and Russia to win the 2016 presidential election. They don’t believe Putin is whacking anyone’s ass.

Never mind that meeting in Trump Tower with Russians, or at least 16 members of Trump’s campaign had contacts with Russians (and the number keeps rising), or Trump publicly asked them to hack Hillary Clinton’s campaign, or his campaign chairman was giving internal campaign polling data to friends of the Kremlin, the Trumpanzees will tell you they don’t see any evidence.

They don’t see that Trump has never criticized Vladimir Putin, yet he’ll go after Justin Trudeau over cheese prices. They don’t see that Trump wants to remove sanctions against Russia. They didn’t see Trump kissing Putin’s ass in Helsinki (if you’re a Republican, that’s in Finland). They didn’t see Trump taking Putin’s word over his intelligence agencies. They don’t see Trump handing Syria to Putin. They don’t see Trump threatening to pull out of NATO, which is Putin’s greatest wet dream. They don’t see that the FBI was investigating Trump as a threat to our national security and that he may be a Russian asset.

I’m a Saints fan, but I’m a bigger fan of my country. It makes me sad the Saints won’t be in the Super Bowl, but it’s probably not a threat to national security, even with the New England Patriots in the game…again (which was another game full of iffy calls). But, having Trump steal an election with the help of Vladimir Putin is dangerous to our democracy and national security.

Trump sycophants are like Patriot fans. They don’t see Trump’s deflated balls. But, while the refs may need eye exams, Trump supporters need their eyes and brains examined.

Lawyering Up


cjones01162019

For the past two years, Trump sycophants have been barking “what evidence is there that Trump colluded with Russia”? It’s as if Robert Mueller is supposed to call each and every one of them directly each time he discovers something new. Never mind that there is evidence that Trump worked with Russia, such as calling Russia out to hack his opponent on the campaign trail, reading Wikileaks out loud at Trump rallies, and having Russians visiting his campaign headquarters to meet his son, son-in-law, and campaign manager. But after this week, the Sycophants should be having a harder time asking their stupid question. The mountain of evidence just got higher.

Sycophants aren’t the only ones who will struggle with their talking point. Donald Trump himself will have a harder time saying “no collusion” now that we know his campaign manager and current prisoner of the federal government Paul Manafort was sharing internal campaign polling data with Konstantin Kilimnik, a Russian national with suspected ties to Russian intelligence and who has been indicted by the Special Counsel’s office. Kilimnik formerly worked for Manafort’s consulting firm. Manafort had also discussed a Ukrainian peace plan, which would lift sanctions on Russia, with Kilimnik, who is believed to be hiding in Moscow at this time. Manafort, deep in debt to very dangerous pro-Russian oligarchs, was working for the Trump campaign without pay only because he’s such a nice guy.

Why was Manafort sharing polling data with a Russian national who has ties to Russian intelligence? There have been questions since the election about how Russian hackers knew to target specific areas and people, like Wisconsinites who didn’t like Hillary Clinton but would never vote for Trump. Trump beat Clinton by around 80,000 votes in Wisconsin, Michigan, and Pennsylvania, a total lower than candidate Jill Stein’s. Russian hackers promoted Stein’s candidacy in those states. How did they know to do that?

Now, we have learned that the FBI has been investigating Donald Trump which is a big deal. The FBI doesn’t normally investigate a president, especially into if he was secretly working to benefit Russia against American interest.

The FBI, much like anyone with eyes, ears, and their head not currently up their own ass, was suspicious of Trump’s attitude toward Russia. They were holding off on an investigation until he fired FBI Director James Comey and told NBC’s Lester Holt that he fired Comey to relieve the stress of the Russia investigation. He told the same thing to the Russian ambassador and foreign minister.

Counterintelligence investigators had to consider whether the president’s own actions constituted a possible threat to national security. Agents also sought to determine whether Trump was knowingly working for Russia or had unwittingly fallen under Moscow’s influence.

If Trump had fired Comey to stop the Russia investigation, the act would have been a national security issue because it would have hurt the bureau’s effort to learn how Moscow interfered in the 2016 election and whether any Americans were involved. That’s what they call obstruction. Donald Trump is a national security threat.

Trump recently added seventeen lawyers to his defense team. What’s more shocking than the FBI investigating a president is that one of the lawyers is Not Natalia Veselnitskaya. That probably would have looked too weird.

Smelling Blood


cjones12242018

Fun fact; if Donald Trump was to send out a tweet condemning each investigation against him, he would have to tweet seventeen times. Another fun fact; he will.

There are currently seventeen investigations into Donald Trump that we know of. These don’t include current or upcoming congressional investigations or those against the criminals he’s appointed to his cabinet.

Five individuals committed the Watergate burglaries, but 69 people were eventually charged with 48 pleading or found guilty from the Nixon administration. And yet, no president has ever faced a legal assault like the one hitting Donald Trump.

There are not seventeen investigations against Trump because “angry Democrats” or the “deep state” are out to get him. There are seventeen investigations against him because he’s brought it upon himself. He’s a crooked individual, and he’s operated his businesses like shell games for his entire professional career of being a conman. Running for and becoming president has exposed those cons.

A lot of people already knew Trump was a crook before he ran for president. American banks stopped loaning to him years ago and a lot of lawyers and contractors refuse to work for him. Trump even talks like a crook, saying his former lawyer/fixer Michael Cohen is a “rat.” Calling someone a “rat” implies there was something to rat about.

His current lawyer and scary mouthpiece Rudy Giuliani have gone from arguing Trump is innocent to the laws he’s broken aren’t that big of a deal. When Rudy argues that nobody got killed, it makes me think we’re going to find a body. Some Republican Senators have accepted Trump is guilty of crimes though they won’t do anything about it. Utah’s Orrin Hatch even said, “I don’t care.” But how much longer will they remain not to care with seventeen investigations piling up evidence of criminal activity and many former friends and business associates flipping on him? Does anyone believe seventeen probes won’t reveal some crimes?

Keeping track of all those investigations can be difficult without a scorecard. Keeping track of all the firings and resignations from the administration is hard enough. Fortunately, Wired has published a guide to each investigation.

There’s the attack on our election by Russia and if Trump colluded or is obstructing justice. Wikileaks is being investigated and there are questions if Trump or his associates knew in advance of their leaks. Investigators are looking into whether Israel, Saudi Arabia, and United Arab Emirates helped the Trump campaign. Trump’s campaign chairman, Paul Manafort is going to prison. There’s the Trump Tower Moscow project. At least fourteen Trump campaign surrogates had contact with Russians. New York prosecutors are looking into his company’s financial shenanigans. There’s paying off women with hush money which were campaign finance violations. The Inauguration funding is missing over $40 million, and there are signs Trump profited, questions if foreigners made contributions, and there were several Russians in attendance at the event. Trump’s super PAC is being investigated. We have foreign lobbying. The NRA received money from Russia and some of that may have gone into the Trump campaign. The administration may have been making a deal with Turkey to hand over a U.S. resident they accuse of being a criminal. The New York Times exposed Trump for decades of unpaid taxes and other assorted financial schemes. His charity, the Trump Foundation coordinated with the campaign and was also a slush fund for The Donald. Finally, we have lawsuits over emoluments, where Trump is making money off the presidency.

These investigations aren’t just hitting Trump. Also, entwined are three of his kids, Don Jr., Eric, and Ivanka. Even Melania might have a finger in the Inauguration scheme.

Is it any wonder Trump had a hard time finding a Chief of Staff? You would need to hire a lawyer just to take the job as you’re sure to receive a subpoena at some point. Trump basically forced his Director of the Office of Management and Budget, Mick Mulvaney to take the job. Even then, he would only accept on the condition that he has “acting” as part of his title, as in, he doesn’t want to be there for the long haul. Who can blame him? The job could have you “acting” like you’re going to prison.

Prison is a place where you could land if you work for Donald Trump. Ask Michael Cohen and Paul Manafort.

There is blood in the water attracting sharks. The sharks are better than you. If you work for Trump, some of that blood will be yours.

Send In The Fembot!!!


 

cjones12202018Austin Powers defeated the fembots by crossing his mojo with their mojo. Apparently, crossing mojos will make a fembot’s head explode. I don’t think the National Rifle Association has any mojo to cross, and their heads will be the ones doing the exploding.

I am always intrigued that the loudest screamers are hypocrites and projectors. Everything Donald Trump says about his enemies turns out to be true about him. Hillary’s administration would be plagued by endless investigations? Check. Pay-for-play? Check. Corrupt charity? Check. Incompetent associates? Check. Massive deficits? Check. Womanizing? Check. Stupid? Check. Selling out to Russia and other foreign interest? Check, check, checkity, check, check.

Russian gun rights activist Maria Butina pleaded guilty Thursday to conspiring to act as an unregistered agent of Russia, admitting that she worked for more than two years to forge relationships with conservative activists and leading Republicans in the United States. Conservatives and Republicans are always the loudest about their patriotism, and always questioning that of others.

One of Butina’s main targets was the NRA, a group she identified in a 2015 memo as an organization that “had influence over” the Republican Party. She wrote that her relationship with the NRA could be used as the groundwork for an unofficial channel of communication to the next presidential administration. Both, the NRA and the Trump administration were eager to be influenced by Russia.

She helped organize a delegation of top NRA leaders to visit Moscow and meet with top Russian officials. She attended their conventions as an honored guest. She used their NRA connections to get access to GOP presidential candidates, including Donald Trump. The NRA even let her ring their bell for top donors, literally.

What’s being questioned is; how much money, if any, did Russia filter through Butina to the NRA? Did any of that money end up in the Trump campaign? What did the NRA know of Russia’s efforts to influence U.S. policy? What did the NRA get in return? Why would Russia, where gun rights are extremely restricted, be so willing to promote gun ownership in America?

Was the NRA willing accomplices or where they just stupid enough to be tricked by a pretty smile and a head full of red hair?

Now Butina has pleaded guilty and has entered into a plea agreement with federal prosecutors. She’s flipping on somebody, but whom? Would prosecutors make a plea deal with her just for information on Alexander Torshin, a former Russian government official who helped direct her activities? There’s not much prosecutors can do to Torshin as he’s not in the country and barred from entering. Torshin is also a lifetime member of the NRA.

The NRA is extremely secretive about how many members they truly have and how much money they make. They have turned over documents related to Butina to the Senate Finance Committee, but they haven’t turned over requested financial records. Why not? What are they hiding?

The NRA’s political action committee and political nonprofit arm together shelled out $54.4 million on the 2016 presidential campaign, which was triple the amount they spent on the 2012 race. $30 million of that money went to efforts to help the Trump campaign. Did any of that money come from Russia? It’s illegal for foreign citizens to fund political efforts in the United States.

Donald Trump, who probably owns a Swedish-Made Penis Enlarger, and the NRA never had any mojo. If you’re looking for mojo, look toward federal prosecutors, because heads are about to explode. But, hey…the NRA usually likes things that explode.

Individual One


cjones12142018

Federal prosecutors have now accused Donald Trump, who is still president of the United States by some bad joke perpetrated by the universe, of committing two felonies.

What Trump did was direct his lawyer/fixer Michael Cohen to make illegal payments to a porn star and a Playmate who were threatening his presidential campaign in 2016. Trump initially denied any knowledge of the payments to the public, as though Cohen took it upon himself out of the goodness of his heart. Later, one of Trump’s mouthpieces, Rudy Giuliani, said that Trump paid Cohen back. Then, a recording was released of Trump discussing the payments with Cohen, and how it would be operated.

A court filing by federal prosecutors in Manhattan said Cohen “acted in coordination and at the direction of” an unnamed individual, clearly referring to Donald Trump.

A separate filing by the Special Counsel investigating Russia’s involvement in the 2016 campaign said an unnamed Russian offered Cohen “government level” synergy between Russia and the Trump campaign in November 2015. While Trump argued Saturday that he didn’t want Russia’s help, fourteen people in his campaign had contact with Russia. Keep that in mind the next time you hear a Trump sycophant argue there’s no evidence of collusion.

In a separate case on Friday, the Special Counsel accused Paul Manafort, Trump’s campaign chairman, of lying about his contacts with an individual they accuse of having ties to Russian intelligence, and about his interactions with Trump administration officials after he was indicted on criminal charges.

So, how did Trump interpret all of this? He tweeted, “Totally clears the President. Thank you!” That is the correct way to interpret it if he was talking about any of the 44 presidents before him (I was worried about Chester A. Arthur). As for him, no. He’s standing directly in the center of the bulls eye. Also, who the hell is he “thanking?”

As Michael Che said on Saturday Night Live, Trump can’t tweet something and magically make it true.  Maybe Trump can buy some ruby slippers, click them three times, and say “there’s no place like no collusion.”

How do fourteen people communicate with Russia without colluding? How do fourteen people in the Trump campaign talk to Russians without Donald Trump ever knowing? How do Republicans ignore a president who commits felonies? Keep in mind; this is the stuff that’s NOT redacted. These two felonies are being called out by the Southern District of New York. Robert Mueller’s office hasn’t released their findings yet, so we can expect even more to pile up. Finally, Trump will be able to brag about having more of something than any other president, in addition to lies, wives, and sexually-transmitted diseases.

We’ve had three presidents accused of high crimes. Two were impeached and the third resigned in disgrace. Are we going to ignore the fourth? I think the House will impeach Trump, and the Senate, needing just 20 Republicans to do the right thing, will protect Trump. There are not 20 Republicans in the Senate who will put their nation before their party or a stupid cult of personality.

The American president operated his campaign with assistance by a hostile foreign power. This is as close to treason as one can get without being at war. Donald Trump is a traitor. The presidency should not be occupied by a traitor.

It’s bad enough it’s occupied by a dumbass with comprehension problems.

Shake Your Collusion


cjones12072018

Denial is not a river in Egypt or a mountain in Alaska. It’s a perpetual state one must remain in to be a Donald Trump supporter.

Have you ever talked to a Trump supporter? It’s not just hopeful optimism they express for their leader. They deny stuff that actually exists. It’s like they never read the news. That’s where their denial starts.

Any news that’s negative on Trump is “fake news.” Many don’t believe Hillary Clinton won more votes than Trump. They don’t believe Trump is racist or sexist despite a history of racist comments and sexists behavior. They don’t recognize that our current economy is a trend started under Obama. Some of them actually denied it rained during his inauguration. They deny voter suppression is ongoing. Leading up to the midterms, they denied Democrats would take the House. A lot of them actually think Trump has great hair.

Their greatest denial is over Trump and Russia. They don’t see Trump being subservient to Vladimir Putin. They don’t believe Russia meddled. If there was any collusion, it was done by the Clinton campaign. One of their most repeated arguments is that there is no evidence that Trump or his campaign colluded with Russia.

Never mind the fact that none of them work for Robert Mueller in the Special Counsel’s office preventing them from knowing what he knows. But, they ignore that there were Russians in Trump Tower meeting with his son, son-in-law, and campaign manager. Somehow, writing a dossier is greater evidence of collusion that inviting spies into your building. They deny Russia engaged in a social media campaign when they were the very targets it worked on. They deny there are troll farms when they’re the cattle. They don’t seem to recall Trump asking Russia for help on the campaign trail or that he said more than once, “I love Wikileaks.” He may as well have shouted, “I love colluding.”

Even after Cohen’s guilty plea last week and news came out on his plea deal with the Special Counsel’s office, I still heard a few Trump sycophants say there wasn’t any evidence of collusion. They either haven’t watched any actual news since before last Thursday, or they don’t understand the definition of “evidence.”

When the Special Counsel finally makes his case, I expect we’ll see a lot of evidence. Well, the majority of the nation will see it. There will continue to be a large number of Republicans with blind spots.

I have been in an earthquake where some people didn’t feel anything, but for Trump supporters, the building is about to come crashing down on them. I’m looking forward to them feeling it.
