The US Gov't, along with the Dems, has hundreds if not thousands of people working full time trying to find a link between the Trumps and Russia and they have been doing so for 9 months. If this is all that they can come up with then I would say that there is nothing. 

 

The broader story is how the US has become so embroiled in partisan politics that the only goal for the opposition anymore is to create a dysfunctional Government.

You are jumping to conclusions if you think what the media knows, is everything that Mueller knows. Time will tell...

It's not an episode of Perry Mason where a crime is committed, investigation pursued, charges laid, trial held and verdict delivered. All done in under 60 minutes.

With the number of people leaking information I would say that there is probably more that the media knows then Mueller!

The Republicans had hundreds (if not thousands) of people working full time and spending millions of dollars to find something on the Clintons for 30 years, and came up with nothing.

The Trumps, in a few minutes, tweaked out all the evidence of collusion someone would need, and apparently that'd not enough?

 

But hey... how about them emails, right?

Elucidate to the best of your ability exactly what laws she broke and what charges were laid.

Washington (CNN)  A federal grand jury in Washington on Friday approved the first charges in the investigation led by special counsel Robert Mueller, according to sources briefed on the matter.

The charges are still sealed under orders from a federal judge. Plans were prepared Friday for anyone charged to be taken into custody as soon as Monday, the sources said. It is unclear what the charges are.

Consensus of my readings is that Manafort is the likely one to be charged.
If you are interested in background, Bill Moyers's website has an excellent Trumpf-Russia timeline. Interesting events, characters and relationships to say the least.

No ones talking about the Clinton foundation, the Podesta Group, and Uranium One? Huh. Might be some fireworks on Monday!

Or maybe Manafort's/Flynn's sons or accountants. Maybe even his wife. Once they're arrested, it's very easy to get dad to flip, then they turn to Kushner and the rest. So Monday's potential arrests may seem anticlimactic at first but they are slowly working their way to the top. It's easy to be defiant until you see your son in handcuffs.

^I don't think there will be any arrests tomorrow, they may some charges preferred but no arrests.

(CNN) George Papadopolous, former foreign policy adviser to the Trump campaign, pleaded guilty for making false statements to the FBI, according to records unsealed today.

Papadopolous lied to FBI agents “about the timing, extent and nature of his relationships and interactions with certain foreign nationals whom he understood to have close connections with senior Russian government officials,” according to the complaint.

With Manafort now charged and in custody, and with Manafort having a long term direct link to Trump himself ... it's now only a matter of time before the Grand Jury determines that Trump had personal knowledge of everything that Manafort was up to, or that Manafort was working specifically at Trumps direction (which is actually far more likely).

 

Either way, Trump gets impeached.

I doubt he gets impeached. It'll take a lot of proof to convince the repubs to try it.

Either way, Trump gets impeached.

Except Manafort was indicted for stuff that he did before working on the trump campaign. There is also the possibility that Manafort leads the FBI to Podesta Group arrests


Manafort had organized a public relations campaign for a non-profit called the European Centre for a Modern Ukraine (ECMU). Podesta's company was one of many firms that worked on the campaign, which promoted Ukraine's image in the West.

https://www.nbcnews....podesta-n812776

“The sources said the investigation into Podesta and his company began as more of a fact-finding mission about the ECMU and Manafort's role in the campaign, but has now morphed into a criminal inquiry into whether the firm violated the Foreign Agents Registration Act, known as FARA.”

Well, he gets impeached regardless if the Republicans lose the House or Senate in the mid-terms ... even his own people are telling Trump this.

Loss at the mid-terms is a guarantee of impeachment.

 

Even if Repubs don't lose the house or senate at the mid-terms, at some point the Republican party as a whole may have to make a decision to vote for impeachment in order to save the "Grand Old Party" from oblivion.

 

Or, more likely, the Grand Jury will find enough evidence that impeachment will be a given no matter what party you're from.

This last scenario is the most likely to occur, although a mid-term loss is also somewhat of a guarantee.

 

Time will tell which it is, but with these three indictments (and there will be many more), Trumps pending impeachment is looming as a fact of life - rather than something that might happen.

Can you provide a link to where you got that information ... a link other than Trumps tweet saying that very thing?

 

(And please, no Info-Wars of Fox News links).
