Russiagate and Donald Trump-What Mueller’s Report Means, and Why It Matters.

Russiagate-What It Means, and Why It Matters.

Now that the Russiagate investigation seems to be winding down, and a conviction for the illegitimate president Donald Trump is not certain to appear as the light at the end of the tunnel, Republicans are gloating and he is acting vindicated, even before the report comes out. That is their prerogative, of course. But the proof is right there in the pudding.

The right-wing gloaters who say stupid things like “Their (us Democrats) narrative is breaking down” are far from correct when they do. Unfortunately, we didn’t get to see him nailed to the wall, but that sure doesn’t mean he shouldn’t be. Trump both looks and is acting guilty and scared by the Russia investigation. A series of fresh disclosures on Tuesday showed that there is every reason for him to feel threatened by the shadow it has cast over his life, business and presidency. What we seek, solid information that Trump did indeed collude, probably sits in a deep crypt somewhere within the KGB building over there in Russia.

The truth has a way of coming out, though. Trump is too stupid and sloppy to hide forever. And when you are “Individual One” on the case of someone who’s already in prison and an international pariah, there’s a pretty good chance there are charges waiting for you somewhere. It’s against Justice Department regulations to indict a sitting president. But he won’t be in office forever.

Trump’s own conduct led to the investigation and has been the chief witness against him all the while. He’s deflected, minimized, rationalized, and flat out denied his role in all this, even as he called on Russia for help during the debates and got it. Robert Mueller will soon provide the voters with the information they need to decide what really happened, and even if Trump finds a way to block it, the damage is done already. It’s been done since the day James Comey was fired. We know who he is.

Even without a smoking gun, the cat is out of the bag.

The cat is out of the bag too on Putin’s blatantly anti-American plotting. His element of surprise is gone and with it his only chance to do more than giving us a bloody nose. Realigning the world to suit Russian interests will never happen for him now. The spotlight is on and it will stay on. We know now that they never considered the Cold War to really be over, and we’re watching for their next move. They will never do this to us again.

For more than three years now, we’ve been blowing the horn of alarm as to what the Russians and other foreign actors online have been doing to our politics. From the Macedonians running the Facebook groups of Bernie Sanders to Tad Devine, Bernie’s manager, having been Paul Manafort‘s old crony and Ukrainian election fixing buddy, all of it was more real than any of us wanted to believe. Public awareness has been thoroughly raised worldwide, and that means something.

Trump has been hooked up with the Russians since the 80s, and the Steele Dossier claimed the Russians have been cultivating Trump for at least five years.-which deceased American hero John McCain took seriously enough to pass on to the FBI. Trump recently reviled him for this yet again, even in the grave.

Say what you want about Putin, but he’s the single most powerful man on Earth. He’s not just some slob like Trump. He’s not going to put years into coming up with a plan just to blow it on something as basic as a written order delivered by hand- which is what it would have taken for Mueller to take down Trump directly. We never expected we’d be able to prove that.

What we can prove is bad enough, though. Three of the top strategists opposing Hillary Clinton in 2016 had been doing Putin’s bidding in this regard for over a decade, on both sides of our political spectrum. Calling that coincidence requires a suspension of belief so enormous that the average adult won’t be able to stomach it. The eyes of the world are on it now.

So what’s it all been for? If it’s not going to end with Trump in handcuffs, was it really worth it? What comes next? These are all the questions Americans are asking themselves right now, and for once and all time, we say yes. To protect the sanctity of elections is to safeguard democracy itself.

Thirty-two people found themselves behind bars for the part they played in this, with more to come. The next time some trash can of a slob decides to get in bed with America’s worst enemy, they’ll have this to refer to when considering the consequences and weighing the cost. Most will turn back, and there will be a strong precedent to smash into bits the would-be traitors who decide to cross the line.

Paul Manafort may well die in prison, and he earned the right to. Nobody can take that away from him. Not even Donald Trump.

In the last analysis, we fought this battle for the noblest of reasons- pure patriotism. We had to be sure that Putin’s puppets couldn’t run away with the White House. The last thing we needed was a fragile, easily manipulated president allied with one of the most corrupt and brutal regimes in the world. Taking that on was the true goal, and we did it.

So be proud, Democrats! You stood up when the going was hard, you fought through some of the worst conditions anyone has ever seen, and the United States of America is better for it. In order to safeguard our rights and our democracy, the most vigorous political action has been and will be necessary. The Russiagate investigation showed the world just how vigorous we can be once we’ve decided to fight.

That alone makes the struggle worthwhile.

The Real Estate Dream and the Moscow Motivation- Document Shows Plans For Russian Trump Tower.

The Moscow Motivation.

The nation received even more bombshell Russiagate information today, in the form of what you might call the Moscow Motivation. CNN’s Chris Cuomo has a signed letter of intent from Donald Trump to build a tower in Moscow. Long after he told the American people he had stopped his business dealings there, he was, in fact, continuing along with it the whole time. The 2016 presidential campaign of Donald Trump was formally launched on June 16, 2015, at Trump Tower in New York City. It was only four months later that he signed the document, known as an LOI, with Russia. In this document is every single reason why Donald Trump has sold his country out.

Rudy Giuliani, looking more like a zombie than ever, claimed on Sunday that while the document might exist, it was never signed. “It was a real estate project. There was a letter of intent to go forward, but no one signed it,” Giuliani told Bash.

You were lying, Rudy, you Times Square ruining animal. On the other hand, thank you for revealing to us the extent of mental desperation you people are in, over there at Team Trump. They’re counting on Trump’s base to save them, and those people feed on lies. But it’s not going to work anymore. People are on their way to prison over this. One of them is retired three-star general and former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn, whose sentencing judge, Emmet G. Sullivan, did not “Bother to hide [his] disgust” at Flynn, who in his view- and ours- “Arguably sold out [his] country.” Trump’s old lawyer Michael Cohen is on his way to the can too. It is not a game.

A copy of the signed letter of intent is provided here. The letter is dated October 28, 2015, and bears the illegitimate president’s signature. It clearly shows the stage being set for negotiations for Trump to build all kinds of stuff on Russia, on Putin’s dollar. I guess he figured Trump and his brand would be very popular in Russia by then, which he was. There were to be condominiums, a hotel and commercial property in the heart of Moscow.
This whole time, we have adhered to Democratic principles and hesitated to label what Trump has done treason, difficult as it has been not to scream it out loud in the streets. But Flynn’s sentencing judge finally did what someone in authority needed to do, and said the word aloud. He asked if the government had considered the charge of treason specifically. They’re still saying no, on Flynn, who has been like their star witness. Apparently, because we are not at war with the nation he sold us out to, he can’t technically be considered a traitor. Neither can Trump, by the same token.
Legal mumbo-jumbo aside, it sure seems like treason to us laymen, is what I will say.
Still, even without the treason charge thrown in, Trump is deluged in tidal waves of his own corruption and collusion. Trump Foundation shut its doors today as well, amid reports of football helmets bought for $12,000– Tim Tebow’s, which he must now sell- and battles over lampposts at the Mar-a-Lago. New York Attorney General Barbara Underwood announced the news Tuesday morning. If you look at it, this dwarfs Watergate so completely that it’s total. To sell out the country to the Russians? Nixon himself is rolling over in the grave. He hated the Russians as much as anybody, having fought them by proxy all the way through Vietnam. Not that hating Russians is good, but that’s just the kind of guy he was. The world needs a lot less hate, and a lot less of guys like Republican Richard Nixon. Not to mention Donald Trump.

The Russiagate Crescendo- Mueller Hones In On Trump Directly.

Trump and Putin- A lackey and his boss.

In the months leading up to the Blue Wave earlier this month, special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation went all but silent, a nod to fairness and decency from the Justice Department, who did not want to influence the elections by showing all the people what an utter swine its Republican president is just before they went to the polls.

The elections ended, America took a deep breath, and all of us waited for the report that’s been so long in coming.

Then things started exploding.

At this point developments with Russiagate are coming so hot and heavy that it’s hard to keep up with them all. Paul Manafort’s plea agreement has been violated because he lied to Mueller’s prosecutors and got caught. Sometimes the lies we humans tell are quite revealing.

At any rate, he can’t go back on it. That plea is final, and Manafort has admitted his guilt. They may also now hit him with the old charges they’d withheld. Looking like life in prison for that guy, or Russian radiation poison on the streets when he gets out. Nobody’s fault but his own.

Another guy who did some pleading was Trump’s old lawyer Michael Cohen, just today, admitting that he perjured himself in last year in front of Congress about the proposed Trump Tower project in Moscow that was being planned out during the campaign.

Cohen made his admission while pleading guilty Thursday in federal court to a charge from special counsel Robert Mueller’s office. He also had some other interesting things to say about the role of the fascinating person known as Individual One in recent court filings. Who is this primary source of a person, you ask?

None other than our very own non-president, Donald Trump.

Cohen made it contritely clear that he lied out of a sense of obligation to Trump. “I made these statements to be consistent with Individual-1’s political messaging and out of loyalty to Individual-1,” Cohen said.
Individual-1 was identified in court filings as Trump. And Cohen identified him as such in a New York courtroom Thursday.
Mueller has now honed in officially on the man who colluded with our worst enemy to steal the highest office in our land- yet never learned the way to spell collusion. It makes one feel a tiny twinge of pity for the demented old man. He isn’t the world’s worst man, he’s just a foolish and silly one.
His friends, however, are the very worst. And he was in constant contact with them all the way through this thing, just as we here at Millennial Democrats have joined millions of other Democrats in predicting from Day One. He was on the phone left and right with Roger Stone, and Stone was in touch with Guccifer 2.0. Probably he had a pipeline of some sort to Julian Assange at Wikileaks.
In related news, Assange is to be tried for espionage as soon as we can roust him from his Ecuadorian embassy home and get him back here to answer for his crimes. He too has his day in court coming.
Emails between Stone and right-wing conspiracy theorist Jerome Corsi, who has said he expects to be indicted for his own role in this whole mess, provide bedrock evidence that every word of the Trump team’s party line is provably false. One wonders just how long Mueller has known about all this.

Either way, Corsi told investigators that Stone, his associate, asked him in the summer of 2016 to get in touch with WikiLeaks. They needed data about unreleased materials relevant to the presidential campaign, the draft court papers say.

“Get to (Assange) [a]t Ecuadorian Embassy in London and get the pending (WikiLeaks) emails,” it said. How much more clear can you get?
In the meantime, Trump himself is in the same old meltdown mode he has been in since before he even got elected. He’s in over his head, and must now play his role as he’s been paid to. We have always known that Putin has something on him, and it’s looking like we’re very close to finding out what.
Expect Trump to lash out in desperation, he has none of Nixon’s principles and all of his meanness and corruption. He will never quietly resign, and might do anything trying to save himself. Victory is near, but that is always the most dangerous time. Great caution and attention must be paid to the following two months.
One thing is for sure, however. We will be here for it, raising awareness and giving you the facts. See you in the trenches!
