This must have caused Trump to choke on his Turkey yesterday.

From Fox News

THE LEAD STORY: Lawyers for Michael Flynn, President Trump’s former national security adviser, have informed Trump’s legal team that they can no longer discuss Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into Russian activities during the 2016 election campaign, The New York Times reported Thursday. The move could indicate that Flynn's legal team either is cooperating with Mueller's investigators or is negotiating to do so.

Manafort took 18 trips to Moscow, met with Putin allies, prior to running Trump campaign: report

Looks like Sally Yates was right about Flynn. From Fox News

"A former senior U.S. law enforcement figure said on Monday she warned President Donald Trump's White House in January about then-national security adviser Michael Flynn because she feared he could have been open to blackmail by Russia.

Sally Yates, who was briefly the acting U.S. attorney general earlier this year, told White House counsel Don McGahn on Jan. 26 that Flynn had not been telling the truth about his contacts with Russia's ambassador to Washington."

Looks to me like there won't be enough democrats left in Congress after all this sex stuff so Trump will be quite safe from Impeachment. LOL!

Paul Emery

Yeah don it's kinda ugly to look at. Should be delivered with a bow to Trump by Christmas or early New Year. The Greasy Trumplet might be gift wrapped as well.

Todd Juvinall

Oh you forget about the power of the pardon. And of course the power to fire underlings. Meuller has nothing and you will be crying the blues.

Walt

Paul. Maybe you should discuss Trump like you do "O". Won't comment one peep where "O" is concerned, your reasoning,, "you didn't vote for him". Well, since you didn't vote for Trump, the same "keep thy yap shut" rule should apply.
Kinda like your views on the new legal dope revelations. You don't want to go there either.(yet it was "your baby" here.)

Paul Emery

Here's one of the big things on Flkynn.

Earlier this month, The Wall Street Journal reported that Mueller’s investigation is examining a scheme Flynn allegedly proposed to kidnap Muslim cleric c, an avowed enemy of Turkish leader Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, from the U.S. and return him to Turkey. The plan would have seen Flynn and his son, Michael Flynn Jr., paid $15 million, people with knowledge of the discussions said.

If Flynn was approached by the Turkish with that deal he will be guilty of failing to report a felony-kidnapping an American Resident. Let alone if he approached the Turks about doig it. Kidnapping an American resident is a felony right Todd?


Todd Juvinall

Oh Paul Emery, there have been no leaks from Meuller so all you are doing is posing rumor. Come on now, give us a Meuller comment or two at least. And it appears nothing you have posted so far has anything to do with Trump.

Don Bessee

Another po' ol' party parrot prediction that will end up in the massive pile of failed predictions that are conveniently forgotten @252. Its gotten to the point now that if the po' ol' fakenewsman said the sun was coming up in the morning we all need to get up early to be sure! ;-)
'

Paul Emery

Yeah right Todd

No big deal when your Campaign chief has been indicted, your National Security Chief is on the verge and is likely cooperating with the special prosecutor and your son is up to his ears in lies to the FBI and your Attorney General can barely remember his name... on and on and on. Also your polls are historically low for a first term president.

Todd Juvinall

But Paull Emery, isn't Muller's charge to find a campaign collusion connection? And what have they got? Pre Trump stuff. So please do us a favor and keep up your blood pressure, mine is low.

Walt

Something to brighten Paul's day.
https://www.yahoo.com/news/rural-california-grapples-green-rush-080323140.html
Funny,, Paul's side won, yet refuses to even talk about that win.
Is it like,, "won the battle, but lost the war"?

Paul Emery

Todd

Everybody knows that a special prosecutor can pursue any criminal activity that may be found along the way. You should know that. Goodness you are naive.

George Rebane

Yes, special prosecutors "can pursue any criminal activity that may be found along the way", but the problem with Mueller is that he has yet to find "the way" he was commissioned to find, and all he can do is offer up irrelevant scraps instead.

Paul Emery

Kind of hard to say Walt. Yes small cultivators are going to have to compete for the market and that could be difficult but there are many specialty markets that need to be filled especially for medical products that will be best served by small producers. Certainly the good ole days of $4000 pounds are gone. There was hope among some cultivators that AG Sessions would attempt some kind of crackdown on State programs that would keep prices up but no luck so far on that. If the Feds do intervene it will drive out Big Agra leaving it to small growers. Many growers just want a chance to be part of the regulated legal market and are willing to give it a go.

MJ Cultivation is our (Nevada county) largest cash importer and I'm disappointed that you are so unaware of the effects on the local economy. Makes me think you don't get around much in town and talk to local merchants and business folks.

Hopefully the County is going to proceed in a responsible manner and approve reasonable regulations but I'm not convinced they will. We'll see.

Scott Obermuller

"...but there are many specialty markets that need to be filled especially for medical products that will be best served by small producers."
Best for whom?
"Certainly the good ole days of $4000 pounds are gone."
Ah - there's the answer.

Don Bessee

Hey I found somebody who actually buys the po' ol' party parrots prognostications as valid;

Todd Juvinall

Oh my Paul Emery is all about fascism now? Meuller was hired to find collusion between Trump's campaign and the Rooskies. That was the charge. So now he is doing the Stasi and you support that. Amazing! Tell us all how Manifort and Flynn's dealing prior to rump have anything to do with his campaign. You seem to support a fishing expedition which I find totally un-American and distasteful at best.

Todd Juvinall

Also now that we have seen the exposure of all your democrats pervs things are quieting down about Moore. Why would that be? I am laughing my ass off at you lefty's and your ignorance about human nature. Paul Emery is so naive.

Paul Emery

George

Irrelevant Scraps? Is that how you classify his indictment of Trumps Campaign manager? Conspiracy, money laundering, on and on. Flynn will be next. If it is shown that he was soliciting to kidnap for cash an American resident he'll be toast and will open up the whole Russia thing in the hope he might someday be able to walk as a free man.


there are scores of undisclosed (under oath) contacts with the Russians that have come out from Trumps staff , family and business associates . Here's just a few examples. The business one is interesting. Mueller is following the money. Where have we heard that before?


July 27, 2016

“I can tell you I think if I came up with that they’d say, ‘Oh, it’s a conspiracy theory, it’s ridiculous,’” Trump told a Miami-based CBS affiliate when asked about the idea that Russians were trying to help him get elected. “I mean I have nothing to do with Russia. I don’t have any jobs in Russia. I’m all over the world but we’re not involved in Russia.”
October 24, 2016

Trump told a rally in Florida that he had “nothing to do with Russia, folks. I’ll give you a written statement.”
November 11, 2016

In a statement responding to Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov’s interview with Interfax that “there were contacts” with Trump’s team, campaign spokesperson Hope Hicks said, “It never happened. There was no communication between the campaign and any foreign entity during the campaign.”

May 11, 2017

Trump asserted he had “nothing to do with Russia” during his famous interview with NBC’s Lester Holt.

“I have had dealings over the years where I sold a house to a very wealthy Russian many years ago. I had the Miss Universe pageant — which I owned for quite a while — I had it in Moscow a long time ago. But other than that, I have nothing to do with Russia,” Trump said.

these are just a few examplew that come to mind. No need to go into the contacts with the Trumplet Kushner. Quite a list

Todd Juvinall

Paul Emry's favorite tyrant, Robert Mugabe, is outta there. Zimbabwe's people have had enough of the old commie and forced him to resign. They inaugurated the new gut today and he is all about progress into the 17th century for those poor bastards. Anyway, I suggest they rename their country Rhodesia and give back all that land they stole from the white farmers. Seems the results of those commie land grabs have been mass starvation. So Paul Emery, do a news piece for us on this would you please?

Don Bessee

There is one person who has the po' ol' party parrots world prism @641. Still nothing but rancid Russian dressing fakenewsman @ 733. thinkprogress.org indeed. ;-)

Paul Emery

Gosh and Golly Todd I don't recall ever mentioning Mugabe name on this or in any public statement. Where did you get the information Todd that he's my "favorite tyrant" ? Yes that is your quote? If you made it up you are a liar, if you have an example bring it on.


We covered the story through the BBC. More next week from Democracy Now I'll let you know what night and time.

Scott Obermuller

Another uppity black woman shown the door by her white masters:
"Thus, Denise Young, Apple’s former diversity chief, was recently obliged to step down after just six months on the job. “There can be 12 white, blue-eyed, blond men in a room,” she had dared to say, “and they’re going to be diverse too because they’re going to bring a different life experience and life perspective to the conversation.” For “diversity is the human experience,” and as such, should not be “tagged to the people of color, or the women, or the LGBT.” Since most Americans are now as stupid as they are wicked, these accurate words naturally prompted a furor, which was not mitigated by the fact that Young is a black woman. Like National Review, which fired the politically incorrect John Derbyshire, Apple is gutless and all about lucre."

[My goodness. I can't believe Trump said this

“As far as hacking, I think it was Russia, but I think we also get hacked by other countries and other people,” Trump said. He also embraced the idea that Russia would want to help him.

“If Putin likes Donald Trump, I consider that an asset and not a liability,” he said."

He considers it an asset that because it was helping him it was ok for the Russians to interfere with an American election. Unbelievable but true.]

“This latest Trump hookers pissing on the bed the Obama's slept on is great! I hope it goes on and on. I love it. Shows how unhinged the libs, the lib press, and the entire Lib Establishment have become. Welcome to my parlor said the spider to the fly.

After this, will the libs have any credibility left? This is their Waterloo, not their Watergate.
Remember the "we cried wolf until a real wolf appeared" warning from Bill Mayer and others last fall? When the next wolf appears, nobody will believe them. Love it.

Is it just me, or has anybody else noticed a slight nuance in The Question the Alt-Media-Left is trying to explain. They are not asking how Trump could have ever beaten Clinton. Nay, they are beginning to ask how Trump could have ever beaten Obama.

————some things never change———-

“Yeah Todd. He acknowledged the Russians were behind the hacking. we don't have to talk about that anymore. I was right. you went on a limb and were wrong.”

Paul Emery

So whats the point of your 8:32. Can you summarize?

Todd Juvinall

Oh Paul Emery, hanging desperately to your fiction about Trump and all the others issues that have you upset. Please get real. No proof, dossier fake, no collusion, and Meuller has nothing. My goodness, you really are close to losing it.

Don Bessee

Your blather in January is no better than now, and that makes you the po' ol' party parrot @ 835. Now your comprehension is slipping along with the oh so convenient memory. It still remains that as of today there is ZERO collusion evidence, I know that matters not to party parrots. While it might be fun to stuff your rantings in your face by reposting your blatherings and TRUDS rants it would just drop old dried out nuggets that would overflow the sandbox ya po' ol' fakenewsman. ;-)

Bill Tozer

My goodness is right.

I'm sure your Muller nothing assessment will bring comfort to Trumps Campaign Chief Manifort, Fynn the flipper and soon his greasy Son.

Paul Emery

Actually Don I should listen to you. As I understand it you've certainly had more experience with the law than I have.

George Rebane

RobertC 824am - I'm puzzled what you are doubting from ScottO's comment. Is it that Denise Young, Apple’s former diversity chief, was recently NOT obliged to step down after just six months on the job?

Robert Cross

George -- I am just pointing out to passersby that Scott's source is a sketchy website known to pass on propaganda with an extreme right bias. That is all. Like all things fact or fiction, you may take it or leave it.
