    More thug tactics

    Attempted witness tampering, just don't ask Mueller to see any evidence. Russians call his bluff and he goes in hiding. Media complicit as always.

    Why would anyone feel compelled to respond to a post on a forum asking a question directed toward the group as a whole with a, "not really sure, but..."?

    From June 5 2018
    The government says Manafort made the outreach after being hit with a superseding indictment in February that included charges of failing to register as a foreign agent.

    . . .

    After those charges were unveiled, the government says Manafort and a longtime associate — identified only as "Person A" — repeatedly contacted two witnesses to try to influence what they would tell investigators about the Ukraine lobbying work.

    Prosecutors say Manafort reached out by phone and encrypted messaging apps to the witnesses, both of whom worked for a public relations firm involved in the lobbying effort.

    . . .

    According to the text messages, which the witnesses provided to the government, Manafort wanted to get the individuals to say the Ukraine lobbying work was exclusively confined to Europe.

    One of the witnesses told investigators that he "understood Manafort's outreach to be an effort to 'suborn perjury'" because he knew the former European politicians had lobbied in both Europe and the U.S.

    Trump just gave an interview where he said Manafort had nothing to do with his campaign. And then he reassured Steve Doocy that Doocy's son was really Doocy's.

    To be fair... witness tampering will get charged on guys still in jail who call like their mom for mother's day from jail who also was a witness and the defendant asks their mom what she said to the cops the night of the arrest.

    Additional details

    Prosecutors say that Manafort's efforts to shape the witnesses' testimony is a clear violation of federal law and his conditions of release — he has been under home confinement on a $10 million bond. So prosecutors have asked the presiding judge to consider pretrial detention as a way to ensure Manafort doesn't commit any future violations.

    That's the interview. The highlight was Trump saying he wanted Americans to obey him the way North Koreans obey Kim.

    This is why I hate this story. Sounds like he broke the law. He should be held accountable for that.

    But where is the talk of how lobbying and campaign finance are a threat to our national security?

    Why would you bring that up, when the present case doesn't even come close to resembling that situation?

    The guy called witnesses and asked them to lie on the stand. And since some of that communication was through texts, they have it in writing.

    He is being accused of asking two Ukrainian witnesses to testify that his lobbying efforts with them did not occur in the US. This allegedly happened in June. Based on his shenanigans thus far, the prosecutor asked the judge to jail Manafort pending trial rather than house arrest or some sort of bail agreement.

    1.) I haven't followed this all that close because people have been doing the "this is it, Trump's going down" thing literally every week since the beginning of January 2017 and literally jack and shit has happened

    2.) To act like witness tampering is some "OMG THIS IS SO BAD" sorta thing when it actually isn't.

    He's innocent of everything and this is a liberal witch hunt. The judge has clearly been intimidated by the Deep Stoat.
    Or whatever

    Is he being accused of meeting with Russian Ukranians, or pro EU Ukranians?

    The only people saying "this is it" are the idiotic conservative posters. Find some liberal leaning posters actually saying that. You can't, can you?

    And yes, this witness tampering isn't the same as the shithole low level scum you deal with. It's probably best to avoid trying to speak about something you openly admit to not following.
