    New Big Updates (since it's been like two days since the last update was made I'm not changing much):

    • Allen Weisselberg, the Trump Org. CFO, has agreed to immunity in exchange for cooperating with federal prosecutors
    • David Pecker, who ran the national enquirer, agreed to cooperate for immunity. He claimed that the enquirer would kill unflattering stories about Trump by buying and sitting on them.
    • 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. The holdout juror refused to explain or provide reasons for finding Manafort not guilty
    • 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 Manafort's bond has been revoked because of witness tampering.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. There is also a separate 12 count indictment targeting GRU officers
    • 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. Who has pleaded guilty and offered to fully cooperate.
    • Twelve Russian intelligence officers have been indicted for conspiracy against the United States and aggravated identity theft. The indictment should be mandatory reading.

    That's what happens when a sitting potus has his personal lawyer and campaign manager plead guilty and convicted of felonies on the same day

    In the case of Dred Scott- is guilt actually guilt? I believe it was Albert Einstein who posed that question. Or Donald Trump, can't remember.

    (CNN)If President Donald Trump were impeached, "the American people would revolt," the President's lawyer Rudy Giuliani said in an interview with Sky News.

    "You'd only impeach him for political reasons, and the American people would revolt against that," Giuliani said Thursday.
    When asked about whether Trump was destined for "inevitable" impeachment, Giuliani replied, "Hardly," and went on to say things have, in fact, "turned very much in the President's favor."
    "I think it's inevitable that he won't" be impeached, Giuliani said. "President Trump is completely cleared. You have this Cohen guy, he doesn't know anything about Russian collusion, doesn't know anything about obstruction."

    Because of Cohens guilty plea we have direct public information that Trump violated campaign finance laws.

    Lets go back a few months to when Cohens offices were raided. Remember the cries of government overreach with attorney-client privilege by Trump supporters?
