Hah, this hasn't even reached a full boil yet. New York State is investigating money laundering dealings between the Trump organization and various Russians, both oligarchs and local mobsters. It is known the state and feds are cooperating, so I expect the state stuff to be held back until they finish turning low-level political guys. When they turn to Kushner and Trump Jr. is when I expect that stuff to come out.

Raid evidence hanged Manafort

Quote:
The FBI’s predawn search of Paul Manafort’s northern Virginia home in July yielded important new evidence crucial to the indictment of Donald Trump’s campaign chairman and one of his close associates, according to the indictments unsealed yesterday by special counsel Robert Mueller.

The “no-knock” raid by agents who picked the lock on Manafort’s front door turned up records showing the longtime political operative had been directly involved in a secret lobbying campaign on behalf of a Ukrainian political party closely aligned with Vladimir Putin’s Russian government, according to the court papers. Manafort, who ran Trump’s campaign for several crucial months last year, has been charged, along with his longtime business partner Rick Gates, with running a scheme to conceal and avoid paying taxes on millions of dollars in fees they collected for their work.

Asked twice by the Justice Department — in November 2016 and February 2017 — for any records that they had on the past Ukrainian lobbying effort, their consulting firm, DMI, responded that it “does not retain communications beyond 30 days” and as a result of this policy, a “search has returned no responsive documents.”

But the whole time, the indictment reveals, at least some of those records were stashed in Manafort’s home. Those records helped Mueller put together a case accusing Manafort and Gates of serving as “unregistered” foreign agents by engaging over an eight-year period in a “multimillion dollar lobbying campaign” that was done “at the direction” of former Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych and his pro-Russian Party of Regions. Yanukovych is now living in Moscow.

The Ukrainian lobbying charges are only one part of a 12-count indictment against Manafort and Gates that also accuses them of money laundering and tax evasion related to over $21 million they had socked away in offshore accounts in Cyprus, the Seychelles and other money-laundering havens.

Although not directly related to allegations of “collusion” between the Trump campaign and Moscow, the charges — especially as they relate to the secret lobbying campaign on behalf of pro-Russian interests in Ukraine — could prove awkward for the White House on several fronts.

Manafort was for a while the senior official in the Trump campaign, serving as campaign chairman and de facto manager through the Republican convention until he was fired in August 2016.

Gates, Manafort’s longtime business partner, was his top campaign deputy and continued to remain in Trump’s orbit well after Manafort was replaced. He played a key role in planning Trump’s inauguration last January, serving as a top deputy to inaugural committee chair Thomas Barrack. He was also “in and out of the White House” during the early days of the Trump presidency, a White House adviser who recalls seeing him there told Yahoo News on Monday.

When Mueller is done with Manafort and Gates, that's when the IRS gets them - they are screwed.

They're saying that basically the reason nobody knew he was arrested is because he cooperated immediately and days later he was back in the White House with a wire.

That's just the word on the street - can't confirm/deny.

Fox News has begun attacking the character of the Federal judges presiding over the Manafort case; including the judge of today's arraignment, who won't even be further involved after that single proceeding.

Dude if the patty is hot and you put it on top of the cheese, the cheese is still gonna melt underneath it just as much as it would on top.

Source: have made a burger with slices of cheese both on top of and underneath the patty.

Since both the judges are women, and one's also black, I imagine John Kelly is finding it particularly challenging to keep #45 from taking to Twitter to complain they're biased against him, just like that Mexican judge was.

Plus, of course, they're both Federal Judges, which Trump probably considers a group that's consistently demonstrated hostility to him and placed obstacles in the way of Making America Great Again.

Excellent legal advice. When suspected of obstructing justice, just obstruct a whole heck of a lot more!

I am guessing you never worked as a cook. Once you take the patty off the grill it starts to cool. The residual heat is not enough to melt a real cheese. Sure it might work for presliced cheese product, but a decent cheddar is more robust. You put the cheese on the patty WHILE IT IS ON THE GRILL. That ensures that the cheeses softens and bonds to the meat or garden burger.

Sure, that is best, but having made a lot of burgers, and being unwilling to even accept a mild chedder as cheese, I do not use processed cheese at home. If you immediately put the patty onto the cheese from the grill, then immediately put the second slice onto the top? It does melt.

Then there is my lame solution of putting the cooked burger on a plate with the cheese in the microwave, then once it's melted put it in the bun.

Yeah, as soon as I heard he plead guilty I realized he was the big news of the day, even though everyone was talking about the other 2. That means he is doing a plea deal .... and he was, as much as Donnie would like people to believe otherwise, privvy to some to top level stuff.

There is nothing wrong with that; the microwave is a legit kitchen tool.
