REPORTS: Mueller-Manafort Case is Getting Messy

Robert Mueller is having himself one heck of a week, apparently.

With the President forcing the resignation of Attorney General Jeff Sessions, (who was more akin to a Scooby Doo villain than a high profile public official), acting Attorney General Matt Whitaker is set to take the stage in the interim.  This could be bad news for Mueller’s probe, of which Whitaker is not at all a fan.  The acting AG even went so far as to publicly explain last year how he would stall the investigation had he been given the chance.

Mueller is reportedly attempting to wrap the whole thing up now, possibly fearing that Whitaker is ready to man the metaphorical guillotine.

To make matters worse for the Special Counsel, it looks as though his attempts to ensnare former Trump pal Paul Manafort aren’t moving along as well as they once were either.

Talks between Special Counsel Robert Mueller and former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort have grown increasingly tense over Manafort’s apparent lack of cooperation with the investigation, according to multiple sources familiar with the matter.

Prosecutors from Mueller’s office have been asking Manafort about a wide range of topics in nearly a dozen meetings since Manafort agreed to cooperate in September, sources said, but the Mueller team is “not getting what they want,” said one source with knowledge of the discussions.

The consequences of failing to fully cooperate could be dire when it comes time for Manafort to be sentenced.

“Should it be judged…that the defendant has failed to cooperate fully, has intentionally given false, misleading or incomplete information or testimony…the defendant will not be released from his pleas of guilty but the Government will be released from its obligations…” his plea agreement reads.

The case’s head honcho laid it all out for Manafort as well.

Judge Amy Jackson itemized the potential consequence Manafort could face if he breached his agreement with the Special Counsel, a list that ranged from additional fines to extended prison time.

Given that Mueller’s time could soon be coming to an end at the hands of Matt Whitaker, could this be a stall tactic from the Manafort camp?  Furthermore, would such an attempt even have an opportunity to succeed, given that Mueller has been farming out his cases to lower courts in order to scatter his plots?

Manchin Shreds AOC, Says ‘She’s More Active On Twitter Than Anything Else’

Published

Despite the fact that the mainstream media has prematurely called the 2020 presidential election in favor of Democratic nominee Joe Biden, there’s a lot of hostilities and division ripping through the party right now. Particularly between Sen. Joe Manchin and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Manchin recently conducted an interview with the NY Times, which was posted up on Monday, in which he took aim at the diehard socialist congresswoman, claiming that she’s far more active on Twitter than she is in Congress. via Newsmax: His words came after a Nov. 11 tweet of his own where he had taken aim at calls to defund the police. He wrote: “Defund the police? Defund the police? Defund, my butt. I’m a proud West Virginia Democrat. We are the party of working men and women. We do not have some crazy socialist agenda, and we do not believe in defunding the police.” Ocasio-Cortez had fired back in a Nov. 12 tweet in which she posted a photo of herself seated behind Manchin at President Donald Trump’s State of the Union speech. In the photo, she appeared to be giving Manchin an icy stare as he applauded. In the Tuesday interview with the Times, Manchin addressed the tweet, saying: “I guess she put the dagger stare on me. I don’t know the young lady — I really don’t. I never met her. I’m understanding she’s not that active with her bills or in committee. She’s more active on Twitter than anything else.” A spokeswoman for AOC, Lauren Hitt, came out to defend the congresswoman by stating that she has submitted more amendments than 90 percent of other freshmen folk in Congress. “The congresswoman has earned a reputation as a tough, prepared member in committee hearings,” Hitt stated. Manchin isn’t exactly wrong here. AOC spends a whole…

Democratic Mayor Of San Jose Busted Allegedly Violating Coronavirus Rules For Thanksgiving

Published

The Democratic mayor of the city of San Jose, California is catching tremendous heat over accusations that he ignored COVID-19 restrictions after he urged citizens in the city to “cancel the big gatherings this year and focus on keeping each other safe.” Well, we all know how much the radical left in this country loves hypocrisy, so not shocked by this a bit. This really demonstrates how liberal “elites” view themselves as above the law, while they look at their constituents as peons. via Daily Wire: NBC Bay Area reported Monday that Democrat San Jose Mayor Sam Liccardo appeared to “have broken health protocols in celebrating Thanksgiving with family members outside of his own household.” Reporters from the local affiliate learned that he celebrated Thanksgiving with his elderly parents, which his office later confirmed, with “an unknown number of other guests.” His office did not disclose how many people attended the dinner, how many different households attended, and whether those who attended wore masks. “This is a private event – not public,” Liccardo’s chief of staff, Jim Reed stated. “We are going to redraw the line between what is personal and what is public because that line has become blurred.” On the day before Thanksgiving, Liccardo tweeted, “Cases are spiking, in part because we’re letting our guard (and masks) down with family & friends. Let’s cancel the big gatherings this year and focus on keeping each other safe.” https://twitter.com/sliccardo/status/1331576931125379082 “While few details about Liccardo’s Thanksgiving celebration have been released, it appears the gathering did elude guidelines frequently touted by the Santa Clara County Public Health Department, aimed at slowing the spread of COVID-19,” NBC Bay Area said in their report. “A recent spike in coronavirus cases has prompted tighter restrictions across the Bay Area and the potential for California to exceed…
