Violence/Genocide: Do not condone violence or genocide on a person or group of people. You are free to attack a person or groups ideas but you are crossing the line when calling for violence. This will be heavily enforced in threads with breaking news involving victims.

    New Big Updates:

    • Jury in the first Manafort trial reached a verdict on 8 of the 18 counts. Appears to be hung on the remaining 10; may result in a mistrial for those counts, possible retrial.
    • Cohen pleaded guilty to campaign finance violations (and tax fraud) for paying off various women involved in Trump's infidelities. He stated, in his guilty plea, that he did so "at the direction of" a 2016 presidential candidate and with the "purpose of influencing the election."

    Mod note from previous thread: Please post in here with regards to the subject at hand. Any general chat can go in the WR OT thread.

    Just to be clear, going forward, these type of posts also count of derailing:

    1. Talking about how the thread is derailed/ how mods should handle a situation (report and continue on topic discussions)
    2. Joking about posters who are reply banned from the thread
    3. Posts with only flaming that do not have any other information about the topic
    4. A reply to any of the above

    Stop doing these. This isn't some game of getting each other reply bans and infractions. Just stay on topic, report when needed. We have the WR OT for posts like the ones above but they have no place in a normal thread.


    Major events so far:



      • Manafort, Trump's campaign manager and transition committee member has been indicted arising from misconduct reaching into 2017 related to payments received through 2014 from the pro-russia faction of Ukraine's pre-war government. He has pleaded not guilty. The indictment has since been expanded by 13 claims. Manafort's bond has been revoked because of witness tampering. His countersuit has been dismissed, as has his claim that Mueller's appointment violated Article II. He has been convicted of 8 counts so far.
      • Michael Cohen, Trump's attorney, has pleaded guilty to campaign finance violations, which he claims to have committed at Trump's direction to influence the election.
      • Gates has pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI and conspiring (with Manafort) to commiting tax fraud, failing to register as a foreign agent, and lying to the FBI
      • George Papadopolous pleaded guilty to lying to federal investigators in 2017 about activities occuring 2016-17. Admits to meeting with various Russian officials regarding setting up meetings and "dirt" on Hillary while acting on behalf of the Trump campaign, something he previously denied.
      • Mike Flynn, Trump's National Security Advisor, has also pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI with respect to several meetings that he had with the Russian ambassador. Flynn was allegedly involved in other business involving Turkey, but has not yet been charged with respect to that behavior.
      • 13 Russian indictment for activity starting in 2014 and continuing through 2017. A US citizen pleaded guilty for agreeing to help them.
      • An attorney linked to Manafort, Gates, and a Russian oligarch has pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI
      • Yohai, Manafort's former son-in-law has agreed to cooperate with the Justice Department
      • Daniels's lawsuit has somehow, insanely, gotten linked up to the Mueller investigation thanks to alleged wrongdoing and influence-peddling by Michael Cohen
      • Twelve Russian intelligence officers have been indicted for conspiracy against the United States and aggravated identity theft. The indictment should be mandatory reading.

    Where are you seeing that there will be a hiatus in the investigation? I haven't seen that reported anywhere yet.

    None of this is about Russia tho so those wouldn't work. It needs to be something like "Just a Cohencidence"

    @waiguoren remind us how good Team Drump is doing again <Lmaoo>

    KEY POINTS
    • It’s difficult to imagine a worse day in the presidency of Donald Trump than Tuesday.
    • In New York, former Trump lawyer Michael Cohen pleaded guilty in federal court to eight felony counts of tax fraud, bank fraud and campaign finance violations.
    • Three hundred miles south, a jury found former Trump campaign chief Paul Manafort guilty of eight unrelated felonies: Five counts of felony tax fraud, one count of failing to report a foreign bank account, and two counts of bank fraud.

    The most hilarious thing right now is Fox coverage, rather, the expected lack thereof, but not so much for the fact that it's missing or very light, more so because of the demagoguery of that vapid ass-clown Dana Perino.

    God, I fucking wish now, more than ever, that Hunter Thompson was alive for this - selfishly, I concede, as I know for a fact that he would not want to be around for this...
