Axios has a scoop
which -- if true -- could be big news. Last month, Mueller's team sent a subpoena to a certain witness, whose name we do not have. The subpoena asked for all communications with certain named members of the Trump administration, going back to November 1, 2015 -- five months after Trump announced his candidacy.
If memory serves, this was still a time when people considered the Trump bid to be something of a joke.
Here are the individuals named on the subpoena:
Donald J. Trump
Now, you should not conclude that all of these people are necessarily targets of Mueller. But the list tells us something of the scope.
I'm particularly intrigued by the appearance of Keith Schiller, the former "body man." He accompanied Trump on the trip to Moscow when the alleged "pee-pee tape" was attained. He also would have been with Trump in Saint Petersburg, which (as most forget) was the site of more sexual kompromat. Or so sayeth the Steele Dossier, which -- despite what the nay-sayers will tell you -- has proven correct in many particulars.
This is not the only indicator we've received lately that Mueller is looking into the, uh, really juicy stuff. (If I may be permitted to borrow one of Colbert's recent witticisms.)
As for Roger Stone: PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE, Mr. Mueller! Lift up Stone and reveal the dirt! Stone told Congress that he used an intermediary to communicate with Assange, and now we are told that the interface was direct
“I have never said or written that I had any direct communication with Julian Assange and have always clarified in numerous interviews and speeches that my communication with WikiLeaks was through the aforementioned journalist,” Stone told the committee in his prepared statement in September. The full hearing was held behind closed doors and the transcript has not been made public. At least one lawmaker had already obtained a screenshot of the exchange before Stone testified, according to two sources familiar with the matter who requested anonymity to discuss the ongoing investigation.
Correct me if I'm wrong, but doesn't that mean that Congress knew
Stone committed perjury? If so, why'd they let him get away with it?
And why'd they let Bannon get away with the shit he pulled?
Why did they let Hope Hicks refuse to answer questions?
Why do Republicans get to flout all of the laws, regulations and norms that Democrats must always obey?
On some level, the conservatives must
know that they benefit from a double standard. Will they ever admit in public that this double standard exists? No. That's too much to ask for. But deep down, they know.
I should say something about Italy
, shouldn't I? Sorry. I can't even think about it. Belusconi...5Star... It's just too hideous to think about.
How can this happen? My mother's mother considered Italia to be her
mother. We're talking about a country with the best food, the best art, the best sports cars, the best volcanoes, the best epic poem and the world's most beautiful women. Religion? You may not think it has the best
religion, but you gotta admit: The RCs know spectacle.
So why do the Eyetalians always screw up when it comes to politics?
