Here is the latest on Independent Counsel Robert Mueller’s
investigation Star Chamber, supposedly looking into collusion between the Trump administration and Russia during the 2016 election.
From Josh Gerstein’s article for politico.com:
Special counsel Robert Mueller turned up the pressure on former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort and aide Rick Gates, as a federal grand jury returned a new indictment Thursday charging the two men with tax and bank fraud.
The new 32-count indictment returned by a grand jury in Alexandria, Virginia comes after Mueller separately chargedthe pair in Washington last year with money laundering and failing to register as foreign agents for their work related to Ukraine.
The new indictment accuses Manafort and Gates of dramatically understating their income on federal tax returns filed from 2010 through 2014.
From 2010 to 2014?
Am I mistaken, or was the 2016 election held in 2016?
I ask this because, if I’m not mistaken, I would like to know why the eff Mueller is charging Manafort and Gates for their activities years before the election…and, in Manafort’s case, adding it to the original charges which also were for activities which took place years before the election.
What’s next? Is Mueller going to nail him for riding his bicycle on the sidewalk while riding home from elementary school too?
This is a farce. A ridiculous farce. And if we had mainstream media that gave a damn about justice, they’d be saying so.
But we don’t, so they aren’t.
