Wednesday Open Thread | So, Little Paulie Manafort Thought That He Could Outsmart Bobby Three Sticks? LMAO!!

So…..we get the news that the Special Counsel has decided to cancel out Paulie Manafort’s plea deal…


Because Paulie thought that he could lie to Bobby Three Sticks.


Special counsel Robert Mueller said in a court filing Monday that Paul Manafort had breached his plea agreement by lying to investigators since signing the agreement.

After signing the plea agreement, Manafort committed federal crimes by lying to
the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Special Counsel’s Office on a variety of subject

matters, which constitute breaches of the agreement. The government will file a detailed

sentencing submission to the Probation Department and the Court in advance of sentencing that

sets forth the nature of the defendant’s crimes and lies, including those after signing the plea

agreement herein.

As the defendant has breached the plea agreement, there is no reason to delay his
sentencing herein.

Manafort still doesn’t get it. He doesn’t get that Robert Mueller, III, doesn’t ask questions that he doesn’t already have the answers to. ….been that way since the beginning.

Now…THE best part about all of this?

That’s right, Ladies and Gentlemen….Bobby Three Sticks delayed all of this UNTIL HE HAD DOLT45’S ANSWERS IN WRITING.


I can’t get past that. Cracks me up everytime I think about it.

A poster on BJ put it in crystal clear focus:

To make the point more explicit, Mueller has Trump’s answer to his questions. If Trump used some of Manfort’s lies, they are now Trump’s lies, and Mueller has them in writing.

And..that’s what you call perjury…..



And, then, we get more news yesterday….

Donald Trump’s former campaign manager Paul Manafort held secret talks with Julian Assange inside the Ecuadorian embassy in London, and visited around the time he joined Trump’s campaign, the Guardian has been told.

Sources have said Manafort went to see Assange in 2013, 2015 and in spring 2016 – during the period when he was made a key figure in Trump’s push for the White House.

It is unclear why Manafort wanted to see Assange and what was discussed. But the last meeting is likely to come under scrutiny and could interest Robert Mueller, the special prosecutor who is investigating alleged collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia.

A well-placed source has told the Guardian that Manafort went to see Assange around March 2016. Months later WikiLeaks released a stash of Democratic emails stolen by Russian intelligence officers.

Manafort, 69, denies involvement in the hack and says the claim is “100% false”. His lawyers declined to answer the Guardian’s questions about the visits.

What could they possibly have to discuss?

Yikes. The extent to which Manafort has apparently never realized that Bob Mueller knows all is incredible. Third time he’s been caught lying by Mueller over this year.

It’s about to be on and popping!

What a time….what a time…

Keep your eyes focused people….they will create all sorts of distractions…but, the real deal is right there, in front of us.

    Democrats nominate Rep. Nancy Pelosi for speaker, a show of strength that will be tested when the full House votes in January
    The California congresswoman, 78, took the first step to reclaiming the speaker’s gavel as she secured a majority of votes in the closed-door session. Opponents offered no alternative candidate.

    When the new Congress meets Jan. 3, Pelosi must overcome more than a dozen Democratic rebels to amass the necessary votes in the full House to become speaker.

    We see you, Rafael.

    Shortly after winning reelection this month, Ted Cruz implored his Republican colleagues at a private lunch to use the GOP’s last days of unified control in Washington to ram through a boatload of conservative priorities.

    The Texas senator urged Republicans to use budget reconciliation before Democrats take the House in January and that they do things like overhaul Obamacare, fund the border wall and chip away at regulations, according to attendees. Cruz argued this would be the GOP’s final chance to deploy the powerful party-line voting maneuver, which Republicans used to cut taxes last year while avoiding a Democratic filibuster.

    How Mueller can use the Manafort plea to get around the White House — if he wants
    By Deanna Paul
    November 28 at 7:00 AM

    Special counsel Robert S. Mueller III on Monday accused Paul Manafort — President Trump’s former campaign chairman — of breaching his cooperation agreement. In doing so, Mueller may have created the opportunity to release information outside of grand jury indictments and a final report, sidestepping acting attorney general Matthew G. Whitaker.

    Manafort’s attorneys disputed allegations that he had repeatedly lied to federal agents since entering the deal in September. Mueller vowed to file a detailed sentencing memo with the court “that sets forth the nature of [Manafort’s] crimes and lies, including those after signing the plea agreement.”

    Now, the public could potentially see details from the special counsel’s investigation in the Manafort sentencing memo and its accompanying hearing, which will likely involve details about alleged contacts between Russians and the Trump campaign.

      Whatever connection he might have had to reality appears to be gone.

      Scary times…

        Ascribing loss of mental acuity to a life-long narcissist who’s always been soulless, callous, self-serving, self-interested, self-absorbed, self-preserving.. is letting the treasonous buffoon off easy..

  7. Trump is really talking about himself but tweeting out this pic to throw folks off. He KNOWS what he has done. So yes, let the treason trials begin!

  8. Manafort and the fraud thought they were gonna hoodwink a seasoned prosecutor and got chin checked.

    Why Trump’s threats of retaliation against GM ring hollow
    11/28/18 08:40 AM
    By Steve Benen

    Donald Trump’s assurances about growth in the auto industry looked quite foolish this week when General Motors announced plans to shutter three assembly plants and two other facilities, while eliminating an estimated 14,700 jobs. The president has decided to respond with a series of threats.

    In one interview this week, Trump said he told GM’s Mary Barra, “You’re playing around with the wrong person.” Referring to a plant in Ohio, the president claims to have added, “It’s not going to be closed for long, I hope, Mary, because if it is you’ve got a problem.”

    Yesterday, the oblique threats became more explicit.

    As Emily Stewart explained, the White House can’t unilaterally punish one company and it also can’t change federal tax law without congressional action. The president may be prepared to scrap the electric-car tax credit, but there’s no evidence of lawmakers having any comparable plans.

    Indeed, there was some talk during last year’s fight on taxes about scrapping this tax credit, but Republicans ultimately backed off and left the current policy in place.

    All of which suggests Trump is saber rattling, but may not be able to follow through, even if he wants to.

    Postscript: As we discussed yesterday, the fact that the president is threatening a private company over its business decisions used to be the sort of thing condemned by the right as “gangster government.” Apparently, those concerns have disappeared.

    Trump ran the entirety of the final stretch of the midterm campaign on his cruel and bigoted immigration agenda and it was rejected by voters. It is a political loser. He is on the wrong side of the issue.

    Be. Not. Afraid.
