Here’s what happened.
Things were not going well for the DNC, the Demorats, Hillary, Bill, Obama, Holder, Lynch, DWS, Geithner, et al, so a few panicky phone calls were made. They went something like this:
“Bobby Three Sticks, dude, can’t you kick this shit into high gear? We’re getting killed by the dossier thing and the Uranium One thing. How about some charges? The threat of some charges? We don’t care if you really do indict a ham sandwich as long as it’s a Republican ham sandwich. Hell, indict a Republican hamster. You just gotta help us out here; we need a diversion and we need it now.”
With that in mind, Mueller’s first overt act was on Friday when this was leaked to CNN.
A federal grand jury in Washington, DC, on Friday approved the first charges in the investigation led by special counsel Robert Mueller, according to sources briefed on the matter.
The charges are still sealed under orders from a federal judge. Plans were prepared Friday for anyone charged to be taken into custody as soon as Monday, the sources said. It is unclear what the charges are.
A spokesman for the special counsel’s office declined to comment.
Pure coincidence. “Leaked to CNN”? Pure coincidence as well. Not like it’s branding or anything.
Five names have been thrown out, meat for the political wolves. Manafort, Flynn, Page, Kushner or Trump Jr.
Guesses as to which one?
Whatever charges are leveled will prove to be peripheral and not directly linked to Russian collusion influencing Trump or the election. Likely, I’m guessing — as with most anyone and everyone in DC — charges will be on the order of attempting some kind of coverup/lying or cash for personal gain. In Manafort’s case, wire transfers.
Mueller will do what the feds do customarily: break one person in order to get to another higher up the food chain. Leverage.
What kind of leverage is there truly?
In the meantime, just when the investigations into Republicans and Russia began, the guilty parties have turned out increasingly to be Demorats.
