    I love how the cut-off title is an unintentional cliffhanger.

    I'm sure the regular suspects will be here soon to say how this should be an immediate mistrial because it limits Manafort's ability to defend himself by bringing up random things.

    Are you serious? There's literally zero evidence available to the public.

    This is gonna be so funny when it all comes crashing down. Although, probably not, since almost the entire massmedia is so deeply invested in this, it will just quitely die down and quickly forgotten.

    Let the chips fall where they may. I have a feeling Trump wont be impeached simply due to the fact the republicans control congress and fox news keeps pumping out propaganda

    It should be noted that unlike the many investigations into Hillary
    20 people have been indicted in the russia probe and five people have pled guilty.

    Also it should be noted that Muller isnt looking for “collusion” as the press calls it
    He was tasked by the government to find
    “any links and/or coordination between the Russian government and individuals associated with the campaign of President Donald Trump” as well as “any matters that arose or may arise directly from the investigation.”
    As seen in the actual letter here:
    Warfare History Network
    So if you’re trying to say “oh they cant frame him from collusion so they’re throwing something else to see if it sticks.” You’d be wrong

    Honestly, I think the best punishment for Trump, if he's found guilty of anything sufficient enough, would be to severely limit his political capabilities and access to social media - since he's demonstrated he's incapable of being responsible with both.

    And, yknow. It's either he and his rabid fanbase "going to war against the deep state/liburrrrrs" after he gets impeached, or them just complaining about how limited he is.

    Even if congress voted to impeach Trump, you then need a 2/3 majority in the Senate to actually make it happen. Bill Clinton was aquitted because the Repubs didn't have the 2/3.

    And so far nothing really came of it. And I'm not holding my breath.

    "Conspiracy to defraud the United States" that's what it really is (or rather what they're looking for). However, looking for dirt on Hillary wherever possible and using that dirt when found isn't defrauding the United States, it's politics and always has been.

    But one could argue that the DNC's collusion with one of their candidates against another candidate actually did defraud the United States. Defrauding them from getting a more viable alternative to Trump than Hillary (according to polls back then). Then again, legally speaking it's probably the DNC's business how they nominate a candidate, whether it's through fraudulent means or not.

    Trump will already be done with his term by the time Mueller is done, so what does it matter?

    With how slow Mueller works, and the way Trump is 'trending' right now, its a possibility.
