    Good point. They've found moneys from the NRA to McConnell directly, right? Something like $1MM iirc.

    I remember bringing that up to you before, I think it was to his majority PAC as Ripster42 said.
    Since we can't call out Trolls and Bad Faith posters and the Ignore function doesn't actually ignore it. Add
    "mmo-champion.com##li.postbitignored"
    to your ublock or adblock filter to actually ignore ignored posters. Now just need a way to ignore responses to them as well.

    If McConnell is implicated in the final report. Would he still be able to have any say in the impeachment process?

    Yes. He would not be removed from office until he himself was impeached (or voted out when his term is up).

    Edit: To be clear in what I'm saying, he would still have a vote in the process. The chances he would remain majority leader in those circumstances are low.

    Ah, ok - that's right. So much money laundering and illegal activity to keep track of.

    Cohen's jail time pushed back by sixty days.

    It's the surgery thing again. He's been given time to heal.

    Source? Cite? Any information for us or just more willfully ignorant hyperbole? Or did all those Trump people not plead guilty and go to jail already?

    That's neat that someone has an opinion. Does he have any direct knowledge of the investigation and when it's wrapping up? Definitely a source, thanks for it, but really what he's saying is about as relevant as what Sulla said above. No new information about the investigation or what it will reveal or when it will wrap up.

    Mueller keeps a pretty tight rein on his team.

    Even if this investigation does prove to be anti-climatic, the SDNY is the one that will really get Trump and his criminal enterprise.

    Did Barr tell Mueller to end it?

    Will Barr release a fair summary or will he protect the president?

    Will the report (redacted for any confidential concerns) see the light of day?

    Questions im sure the democrats will try to get to the bottom to, while GOP plug their ears and say he did nothing.

    Money laundering and Bank Fraud are tax and "process" crimes? Wow, you sure know a LOT about the justice system.


    CNN is breaking the story that it’s over and the report is coming as soon as next week. Could be delayed for Trump’s upcoming diplomatic trip, but it’s gonna be soon.
    Interesting. Barr is an excellent source.


    And what team? Vast majority of the team has already returned to the Justice Department.
    Are you not aware of the Mueller investigation and his team? How many have returned again? How many were on the team to begin with? Please cite instead of hyperbole.

    Good thing Congress doesn't, since Trump has completely politicized our justice system. The truth will come out - and that's all the american people want.

    Don’t be sad or angry Cubby. I don’t personally know what it’s like to have nothing to show for a 2-year hobby, but I’m sure you’ll find something else to pass the time as Trump continues being your duly-elected President.
    So how's that Roy Moore seat going?

    Good.

    Mueller passes his evidence onto Congress and SDNY. Congress subpoenas Mueller. People go to jail.

    People think the prosecutions were the only things that Mueller was working on? Lol. He barely handled those as those were handed off so he could dig up more evidence. We're only at halftime.

    "could be anticlimactic" = "will be anticlimactic"?

    Clinging awful hard to a "could be".

    Congress subpoenas are way better and I'm not hoping for, but expecting an avalanche of those.
