Is Mueller “Sweating Out” Paul Manafort?

A recent report is troubling for both sides.

Robert Mueller

Not surprisingly, Americans are growing ever more tired of the ridiculous #RussiaGate witch hunt that Robert Mueller has been conducting, despite the Special Counsel’s inability to produce even one connection to collusion within the Trump campaign.

In fact, two subsequent investigations have both shown precisely no collusion, after having investigated the same claims.  Further confounding We The People is the reality that Robert Mueller seems to have moved well off the rails of the original scope of this investigation, having declared nothing but trumped up process charges for a number of loose connections to the President.  In fact, Mueller hasn’t even been getting much of a warm reception in the courtroom either, with one judge recently demanding that Michael Flynn appear in court, in person, within days lest Mueller wish to let him walk.

Both sides in the special counsel’s case against former national security adviser Michael Flynn are staying tight-lipped after a judge demanded information about why Flynn’s sentencing is once again being delayed.

In a joint Monday court filing, Mueller and Flynn’s lawyers only replied that they are not “ready for sentencing.”

But responding to that filing, U.S. District Court Judge Emmet Sullivan late Monday ordered a July 10 hearing over the delays.

This reeks of desperation, as if Mueller just needs more time to make him crack.
C’mon, Bobby, I know you spent some time over at the FBI, and we have just figured out that those boys are about as useless as breasts on a boar, but we figured that you would at least hide it better.
For instance, with reports surfacing today that your only other “get”, Paul Manafort, is spending his time in solitary confinement, one could certainly get the impression that you’re attempting to sweat him for info or some sort of false confession.
The attorney for Paul Manafort on Thursday appealed for his client’s release from “solitary confinement” so he could prepare for his defense in two complex trials.

The motion to release states that Manafort — a former chairman of Donald Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign — is locked in his cell “24 hours a day,” except for when he meets with his legal team whose offices are two hours away from the facility where Manafort is being held.

Manafort’s location is unclear. Some reports indicate Northern Neck Regional Jail in Virginia.

Jobless Claims Fall Below A Million, Breaking 20-Week Streak

Published

on

We have more excellent news on the economic front as the number of new applications received for unemployment benefits has dropped to 963,000, according to reports published by the Labor Department. This breaks the streak of 20 consecutive weeks that saw those figures above a million. Economists had projected this week’s numbers would be somewhere around 1.1 million. This is fantastic. Our nation is finally starting to recover a bit from the coronavirus, though you’d never guess that was the case by the way the mainstream media is covering the story. Here’s more information from The Washington Examiner: The total number of people claiming jobless benefits in all programs for the week ending July 25 was 28.3 million, a decrease of over 3 million from the previous week. For comparison, there were 1.7 million people claiming benefits for all programs in the same week in 2019. While jobless claims remain at historic highs, Mark Hamrick, a senior economic analyst at Bankrate.com, noted that they have fallen in places particularly affected by the coronavirus. Florida saw a drop of over 23,000 in initial claims between the week ending Aug. 8 and the week prior. Georgia and Texas saw decreases of over 11,000 each over the same time period. Back in March, toward the end of the month, jobless numbers hit a staggering 6.9 million. Those numbers began to drop in May with the reopening of the economy in many states around the country, but hadn’t dropped below a million until now. The recovery has been a bit slow paced, but that’s to be expected. Most places around the nation have been very cautious about reopening after the shutdowns earlier this year. It only makes sense that as things happen in phases, slowly over time, so too would the economic recovery. Here’s…

President Trump Says Democrats Mail-In Ballot Drive Is Holding Up COVID Stimulus Package

Published

on

President Trump has come out and stated on Thursday that the reason the coronavirus relief package has been delayed in negotiations on Capitol Hill is due to the fact that Democrats are continuing to push for mail-in voting as part of their wish list, which he says would cause “the greatest fraud in history.” And you know what, he’s probably right. Just think about how easy it would be to manipulate voting results with mail-in ballots. Many folks wouldn’t even participate in the election if they had to do that. It would definitely provide a tremendous boost to the Democratic Party. Trump conducted an interview with Maria Bartiromo on Fox Business Thursday morning, saying that negotiations over the fourth stimulus relief package were being held up by this very issue. Here’s more from Fox News: “It’s their fault,” Trump said. “They want $3.5 billion for something that’s fraudulent … for the mail-in votes, universal mail-in ballots. They want $25 billion for the post office. They need that money so it can work and they can take these millions and millions of ballots.” Trump added: “But if they don’t get those two items, then they can’t have mail-in ballots.” The president went on to slam the practice, saying that ballots have been “sent to dogs” and “dead people,” citing states like Virginia, where he said more than “500,000 phony ballot applications were sent to voters,” and in New York, where mail-in voting caused a weekslong delay in announcing results for some races in the state’s primary. “How would you like to have $3.5 billion for mail-in voting? You know how much money that is? They want $25 billion for the post office because the post office is going to have to go to town to get these ridiculous ballots in,” Trump…
