Mueller Is Said to Be in Talks With White House About Interviewing Officials

WASHINGTON — In a sign that the investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election will remain a continuing distraction for the White House, the special counsel, Robert S. Mueller III, is in talks with the West Wing about interviewing current and former senior administration officials, including the recently ousted White House chief of staff, Reince Priebus, according to three people briefed on the discussions.


Mr. Mueller has asked the White House about specific meetings, who attended them and whether there are any notes, transcripts or documents about them, two of the people said. Among the matters Mr. Mueller wants to ask the officials about is President Trump’s decision in May to fire the F.B.I. director, James B. Comey, the two people said.


That line of questioning will be important as Mr. Mueller continues to investigate whether Mr. Trump obstructed justice in the dismissal of Mr. Comey.

Here's the bottom line: just arrest Donnie jr now. He said in an email he committed treason. Make daddy pardon him. Get rid of these assholes before soldiers start dying.

Just guessing but I think Donnie will hand out pardons like it's candy at a parade. No idea if e'll try to pardon himself, but he seems like the type who would.

What's underappreciated in this story is that of Trump's 5 man FP team in early '16, two were Russian intermediaries

Could Trump ask Sessions to charge Manafort with something, making it federal, so that way he could pardon him and try to keep him getting charged at the state level because of double jeopardy?

Sessions recused himself, remember? And I'm not sure he'd take part in such an obvious attempt at a coverup. Maybe, but I don't think so.

The dual sovereign doctrine would mean that Manafort would not be protected by the double jeopardy clause. The courts have ruled on occasion that when two sovereigns - for example, a state government and the federal government - both have jurisdiction, an individual can be tried by both for the same crime.

Manafort Notes From Russian Meet Contain Cryptic Reference to 'Donations'

WASHINGTON — Paul Manafort's notes from a controversial Trump Tower meeting with Russians during the 2016 presidential campaign included the word "donations," near a reference to the Republican National Committee, two sources briefed on the evidence told NBC News.

The references, which have not been previously disclosed, elevated the significance of the June 2016 meeting for congressional investigators, who are focused on determining whether it included any discussion of donations from Russian sources to either the Trump campaign or the Republican Party.

Could've been written in fat marker on the inside of a spread out Burger King crown.
