Heard on the radio it isn't just a plea, he is specifically going to cooperate and work with Mueller.

If true, I am surprised. He was almost guaranteed a pardon. Maybe he was getting mixed signals behind the scenes from team Trump.

Maybe he hopes cooperation may also stave off state charges?

Greg

Still not 100% sure it is true.

Maybe he was afraid Trump would get 25th-ed, or Trump would screw him, or he was worried the guy would have a heart grabber before he issued a pardon.

Again, if he is actually fully cooperating. Still not fully convinced.

Quote:
WASHINGTON — Former Trump campaign chair Paul Manafort has reached a plea deal that includes his agreement to cooperate with federal prosecutors, a dramatic reversal after he spent the past year fighting the charges filed by special counsel Robert Mueller's office at every turn.

On Friday morning, Mueller's office announced a new superseding criminal "information" against Manafort — a type of charging document that usually signals a plea deal. It charges Manafort with two felony counts: conspiracy against the United States and conspiracy to obstruct justice. A pretrial hearing scheduled for mid-morning on Friday was then changed on the calendar to "plea agreement hearing."

At the plea hearing, Andrew Weissmann, a prosecutor in Mueller's office, told the court that Manafort's plea deal includes a cooperation agreement.

Just three weeks ago, President Donald Trump strongly criticized such moves in an interview, telling Fox News, "It's called flipping and it almost ought to be illegal."


The context then — as Trump also tweeted about — was his criticism of his former lawyer Michael Cohen reaching a plea deal with federal prosecutors in New York. In the tweet, he criticized Cohen and held up Manafort as a "brave man," saying Manafort "refused to 'break'" and "make up stories in order to get a 'deal.'"

I also heard Trump is holding off on Redacting the 20 pages of the Insector general's report because it would harm the intelligence community. He's Supposably keeping it as his Ace in the hole.

Not to worry.  The report will leak anyway.

Would someone, anyone, please tell me what they think trump did with the Russians.

I hear these general phrases, like “trump colluded with the Russians to steal the election”

But I don’t know what that means. Did he hire Russian hackers to break into the dnc servers?

99.99 percent of tbe time when there is an allegation there is a very specific “here is what I think happened, now I need to prove it”.

So assuming you believe a law or laws were broken, what specifically do you think happened?
