Trump Aides Just Revealed The 4 Conclusions They’ve Reached About Mueller’s Russia Probe

 

Special Counsel Mueller’s investigation into President Trump and his campaign team’s alleged efforts to collude with the Russian Federation in order to tilt the 2016 election in his favor is kicking into overdrive – and worried Republicans say it looks like he’s “going in for the kill,” according to new reports from Axios.

A new expose by reporters Mike Allen and Jonathan Swan reveals four major conclusions.

  1. Mueller is burrowing in hard on the obstruction of justice angle.

President Trump’s decision to fire FBI Director James Comey, along with his private meetings and communications with other senior intelligence community figures about the Trump-Russia investigation, indicate that Trump went out of his way to obstruct justice and throw a wrench into the investigation into his team, his sons, and his personal finances, and himself.

Trump, not used to having to obey rules or being told he can or cannot do things, attempted to slow the Trump-Russia investigation with his characteristic impulsiveness and a complete disregard for the legal and ethical protocols of government. Mueller has found the obstruction of justice angle

2. The “angry, meandering” draft White House justification for firing Comey — which was never released, but obtained by Mueller — could be used as evidence of Trump’s unvarnished thinking when venting to staff.

Trump foolishly decided to leave a paper trail detailing his efforts to obstruct justice, making Mueller’s case much stronger.

3. Legal fees, with white-collar attorneys charging $1,000 an hour, get cripplingly expensive pretty quick. Watch for outside legal defense funds to pop up quickly.

No matter what happens, this is going to be extremely painful for Trump and his spoiled scions – financially speaking, anyway.

4. The investigation’s financial dimensions are worrisome. The focus on Michael Cohen, a Trump lawyer and confidant whose business dealings are intertwined with the president’s, has been particularly troubling for those in Trump’s close orbit. Cohen dealt with some colorful characters. And when plans for the Trump Tower in Moscow are fully picked apart, other questionable Russian characters may be drawn in.

On top of the obstruction of justice charges facing him, Trump’s own past could come back to haunt him in a big way as Mueller dives deep into the Trump family finances – and we know there are a lot of skeletons buried there.

Trump is incapable of completing any kind of business deal without exploiting a loophole or extorting workers or simply not paying for the services received, and his refusal to release his tax returns indicates that there is a lot of dirt to be found there.

Trump’s goose is cooked no matter which way he turns.

Chief Of Staff Confirms That Trump Is Under Investigation By Mueller (VIDEO)

Chief Of Staff Confirms That Trump Is Under Investigation By Mueller

 

Ever since the investigation into the 2016 election began, President Trump has steadfastly maintained that he isn’t personally under investigation.

Shortly after Special Counsel Robert Mueller was appointed earlier this year, Trump said former FBI Director James Comey had assured him he wasn’t part of the counterintelligence investigation being conducted by the FBI. And while that may be true in regard to counterintelligence, Comey didn’t offer any assurances that Trump wasn’t under criminal investigation.

And on Monday, just hours after indictments of former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort and his business partner Rick Gates were unsealed in Washington, the president was on Twitter trying to distract from the growing scandal:

And yet, when White House Chief of Staff John Kelly appeared on The Ingraham Angle Monday evening, he clearly suggested that his boss is indeed being investigated, telling the host:

“It’s very distracting to the president, as it would be to any citizen, to be investigated, while at the same time trying to carry the weight of what it means to be president of the United States on his shoulders.”

If that’s not confirmation, what exactly is?

As for Kelly’s whining that it’s an added “weight” on Trump to know he’s under the microscope while trying to do his job, all I can say is BOO FREAKING HOO! If he can’t handle the pressure, maybe he needs to step aside and let a legitimately elected person run the country. Someone like Hillary Clinton, who got nearly 3 million more votes than the Orange Menace.

Also, Trump made a choice to associate with unsavory characters like Manafort and Gates. He appointed Michael Flynn to one of the highest positions in the administration despite the fact that he was on the take from both the Russian and Turkish governments. You know the old saying: You are the company you keep.

So here’s a bit of advice for Trump and Kelly: No one wants to hear your pathetic whining. And we don’t believe any of your lies.

Here’s Kelly on Fox News:

Harvey Weinstein to TWC Board, ‘I’m Sorry, I Have a Real Problem’

Harvey Weinstein to TWC Board, ‘I’m Sorry, I Have a Real Problem’

 

 

Harvey Weinstein was apologetic and contrite during the Board of Directors meeting Tuesday when he resigned under pressure from the Board … sources connected to the meeting tell TMZ.

We’re told there was no screaming, no yelling, no anger. Harvey Weinstein told the Board, “I have a real problem,” and then apologized for the “trouble and confusion” he caused TWC.

We’re told Weinstein, who was on speaker phone from Arizona, told the Board he needed to build a new life and move on.

Our sources say everyone sounded conciliatory … partly because the handwriting was on the wall.  The Board made it clear Weinstein had a legal obligation to resign from the Board after it ratified his firing from TWC. He did just that.

Harvey, we’re told, was “peaceful” during the meeting and Bob was subdued.

We’re told the sense of the Board is that Harvey Weinstein will not force his firing to arbitration or court.

Our sources say both Harvey and Bob Weinstein have an overriding interest in making sure Colony Capital succeeds in restructuring the company — money. The each have roughly 21% equity interest in TWC, and if the company fails, they walk away with nothing.

As one source put it, “Harvey and Bob have a huge stake in making sure Colony Capital can put Humpty Dumpty back together again.”

Trump’s Net Worth Plummets By $600 Million

 

As much as Donald Trump loves to brag about how rich he is, turns out he’s a lot less wealthy than he was a year ago.

Forbes magazine has just released their annual ranking of the 400 richest Americans has some very bad news for the Donald: His net worth has fallen drastically by $600 million, meaning he’s only worth an estimated $3.1 billion. That drops him 92 spots on the Top 400 list, from #146 to #248.

Ouch!

What led to the sudden drop in Trump’s worth? Forbes notes:

“A tough New York real estate market, particularly for retail locations; a costly lawsuit and an expensive presidential campaign.”

Ironically, America’s richest people are richer than they were in 2016, but not Trump.

For the 24th year in a row, Bill Gates tops the list, with an estimated net worth of $89 billion. Here’s the rest of the top 10:

  • Jeff Bezos, Amazon, $67 billion
  • Warren Buffett, Berkshire Hathaway, $65.5 billion
  • Mark Zuckerberg, Facebook, $55.5 billion
  • Larry Ellison, Oracle, $49.3 billion
  • Michael Bloomberg, Bloomberg LP, $45 billion
  • Charles Koch, Koch Industries, $42 billion
  • David Koch, Koch Industries, $42 billion
  • Larry Page, Google, $48.5 billion
  • Sergey Brin, Google, $37.5 billion

And Trump fared even worse on the Bloomberg’s worldwide billionaires list, which rates his worth at $2.86 billion. That doesn’t even qualify him to be named as one of the 500 richest people in the world.
