Former Trump Aide Rick Gates Will Plead Guilty To Mueller Probe Charges
by Nick Visser

February 18, 2018


Muh-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-HAH-HAH-HAA-A-AH!!!


Rick Gates, a former campaign aide to President Donald Trump, will plead guilty to charges related to fraud and is willing to testify against his longtime business partner, Paul Manafort, The Los Angeles Times reported on Sunday.

Speculation has grown for weeks that Gates would cooperate with special counsel Robert Muellerís ongoing inquiry into Russian meddling in the presidential election. Gates, who served as Trumpís deputy campaign manager, was indicted in October along with Manafort on charges ranging from money laundering to violations of foreign lobbying laws. He pleaded not guilty to all charges at the time, which carry 10 years or more in potential sentences.

The plea will reportedly change in the coming days, and Gates will likely serve about 18 months in prison in exchange for his cooperation, the Times reported.

ďRick Gates is going to change his plea to guilty,″ a source familiar with the case told the outlet.

Rick Gates, Trump Campaign Aide, Pleads Guilty in Mueller Inquiry and Will Cooperate

By MARK MAZZETTI and MAGGIE HABERMAN

FEB. 23, 2018

(WASHINGTON D.C.)
ó A former top adviser to Donald J. Trumpís presidential campaign pleaded guilty on Friday to fraud and lying to investigators in the special counsel inquiry into Russiaís interference in the 2016 election and will cooperate with the investigation.

The adviser, Rick Gates, is a longtime political consultant who once served as Mr. Trumpís deputy campaign chairman. The plea deal could be a significant development in the investigation ó a sign that Mr. Gates plans to offer incriminating information against his longtime associate and the former campaign chairman, Paul Manafort, or other members of the Trump campaign in exchange for a lighter punishment. He faces up to nearly six years in prison.

Appearing with his attorney in a Washington courtroom on Friday afternoon, Mr. Gates changed his plea, acknowledging that he participated in the financial conspiracy with Mr. Manafort.

"Beauty Kills the Beast!"

Michael Cohen, puppetineís Lawyer, Appears at Manhattan Court Hearing
AND
Stephanie Clifford, known professionally as Stormy Daniels, Appears at Manhattan Court Hearing
by ALAN FEUER

Monday APRIL 16, 2018


Michael D. Cohen, the acting-Presidentís embattled lawyer, appeared in a courtroom in Manhattan on Monday as prosecutors and Mr. Cohenís lawyer continued to argue over the fruits ó and future ó of the extraordinary raids that federal agents conducted last week on Mr. Cohenís office, home and hotel room.

Last week, Mr. Cohen ignored an initial hearing in the case, opting instead to smoke cigars in the sun outside the Loews Regency Hotel, a move that prompted Judge Kimba Wood of Federal District Court in Manhattan to tell his lawyer to make sure Mr. Cohen was present at the next court appearance. Mr. Cohen was not alone at Mondayís the hearing: The adult film star Stephanie Clifford, better known as Stormy Daniels, was at the courthouse as well, setting the stage for a remarkable face-to-face confrontation.

The issue before Judge Wood is, at least for now, a relatively narrow one: Who should be the first to read the seized material and thus be in a position to decide if any of them should be excluded from the case and avoid further scrutiny ó the taint team, a special master appointed by the court, or Mr. cohen and puppetine themselves?

It remained unclear on Monday morning if the judge would rule from the bench or issue a written decision at another time.

SEAN HANNITY NAMED!

by The Associated Press

Monday APRIL 16, 2018

Acting-President emperor puppetine's personal attorney has been forced to reveal that another of his clients is fox news host Sean Hannity.

Lawyers for michael cohen argued in court on Monday that they could not identify hannity because he asked that his name not be disclosed in connection with an FBI seizure of cohen's files. But Judge Kimba Wood made one of the lawyers identify him in open court.

The hearing in a New York City courtroom stems from a surprise raid this month on Cohen's home and office.

CHECK...
MOVE YOUR KING!
by Josh Gerstein

Wednesday, May 23rd, 2018


Special counsel Robert Mueller is fighting a drive by media organizations to unseal secret court filings relating to searches and surveillance efforts undertaken as part of the investigation into possible coordination between the Trump campaign and Russia in the 2016 election.

While lawyers for acting-president drumphf have suggested in recent weeks that the inquiry appears to be winding down, Muellerís prosecutors submitted a court filing on Wednesday that painted a very different picture of an investigation that is moving forward on multiple fronts and could be jeopardized by premature disclosure of the records sought by news outlets.

Here's an excerpt:

GOVERNMENT'S RESPONSE TO MOTION FOR PUBLIC ACCESS TO CERTAIN SEALED COURT RECORDS

The United States of America, by and through Special Counsel Robert S. Mueller, III, files this response to the motion by a coalition of five media companies to unseal search warrant materials and other court records in the Special Counselís investigation. 

The movants seek unsealing of (1) the warrants, applications, supporting affidavits, and returns relating to all search, seizure, and Stored Communications Act warrants pertaining to the Special Counselís investigation into Russian efforts to interfere in the 2016 presidential election; and (2) certain records from the pending prosecution in United States v. Manafort, No. 17-cr-201-ABJ (D.D.C.), including sealed hearing transcripts.

The request for broad unsealing of search warrant materials should be denied.

The Special Counselís investigation is not a closed matter, but an ongoing criminal investigation with multiple lines of non-public inquiry.  No right of public access exists to search warrant materials in an ongoing investigation.

You're are absolutely right, Mr. Hudlin!

I'm being careful of redundancies in each case. I want to make sure that each report is extreme enough to reach a certain checkpoint leading into the overall event that is the 2018 Mid-Term Elections. 

For example, mr. Manafort, drumphf's former campaign manager is about to start his trial this week while he is under solitary confinement and we're fast approaching August 2018. 

There's drumphf's lawyer, michael cohen who is starting to break by admitting to authorities that drumphf did, indeed, knew about that 2016 trump tower meeting in advance.

Michael Avenatti, Ms. Daniels lawyer, is motivated and confident about his findings in his case.

There is a show about to go on this Fall, sir!  :)
