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.

Biden Speech Writers Salivate Over Emerging July 4th Narrative

The cringe cometh.

Whoever is in charge of the story arc over at the White House is really excited about the Fourth of July. This is Independence Day, of course; the day in which we celebrate our decision to kick the British off of the continent over their ever-more-dastardly taxation of the colonies. But, for Team Biden, the 2021 version of Independence Day is going to bring us freedom from the coronavirus. President Joe Biden urged more Americans to get their coronavirus vaccine Wednesday, warning they still had “more to do” in order to celebrate Independence Day with their families. “To celebrate our independence from this virus on July 4th with family and friends in small groups, we still have more to do in the months of May and June,” Biden said. And his speech writers have been stewing on this hokey, on-the-nose narrative for a while. Biden first proposed the idea of allowing families and friends to gather for Independence Day on March 11, but he expressed concern on Wednesday the country was not ready. “If we let up now and stop being vigilant, this virus will erase the progress we’ve already achieved,” he said. We can only imagine what terrible puns and portmanteaus the Biden PR cabal will drop on us come July 4th: “One if by J&J, two if by Pfizer.” “If the Continental Army had has masks, so many fewer future Americans would have died from smallpox.” “You know what else is ‘Common Sense’?  Social distancing.” The cringe cometh, folks.

Fraternal Order of Police Responds to LeBron James’ Tweet Fiasco

And they were NOT happy.

The politicization of American sports has been ongoing for some time, perhaps decades, but the most recent acceleration of this melding has come thanks to the power of social media and the blurring of the line between celebrity and athlete. At the forefront of this movement has been the NBA, and, more specifically, superstar LeBron James. This week, James came under fire for a tweet in which he referenced the Derek Chauvin trial’s guilty verdicts, with a photo of another officer who was involved in the shooting of a young black girl and text stating “you’re next”. The tweet was seen as a threat by many, including the Fraternal Order of Police who responded harshly. On Wednesday, James tweeted a photo of the officer involved in the shooting with a caption reading “YOU’RE NEXT #ACCOUNTABILITY.” The tweet has since been deleted. James was reacting to the deadly police shooting of 16-year-old Ma’Khia Bryant. Hours later, the National Fraternal Order of Police tweeted a photo of James’ original tweet, saying: “[email protected], with his vast resources & influence, should educate himself and, frankly, has a responsibility to do so, on the facts before weighing in. This is disgraceful & extremely reckless. The officer saved a young girl’s life. No amount of gaslighting will change that fact.” James attempted to walk back the tweet after deleting it, by issuing an explanation that garnered only a lukewarm response online.
