    I think that is enough.

    Papadopoulos sat at the elbow of one of Trump’s top campaign advisers, then-Sen. Jeff Sessions, during a dinner for campaign advisers weeks before the Republican National Convention, according to an individual who attended the meeting.

    He met in London in September 2016 with a mid-level representative of the British Foreign Office, where he said he had contacts at the senior level of the Russian government.

    And he conferred at one point with the foreign minister of Greece at a meeting in New York.

    It's pathetic frankly but amusing above all else.

    Bannon was just above Papadopoulos. He went for everyone's second cup of coffee.

    Trump Tower meeting with Russians 'treasonous', Bannon says in explosive book

    Donald Trump’s former chief strategist Steve Bannon has described the Trump Tower meeting between the president’s son and a group of Russians during the 2016 election campaign as “treasonous” and “unpatriotic”, according to an explosive new book seen by the Guardian.

    Bannon, speaking to author Michael Wolff, warned that the investigation into alleged collusion with the Kremlin will focus on money laundering and predicted: “They’re going to crack Don Junior like an egg on national TV.”
    Note that "Steve Bannon isn’t against treason, just poorly executed treason":

    Bannon went on, Wolff writes, to say that if any such meeting had to take place, it should have been set up “in a Holiday Inn in Manchester, New Hampshire, with your lawyers who meet with these people”. Any information, he said, could then be “dump[ed] … down to Breitbart or something like that, or maybe some other more legitimate publication”.
    Bannon added: “You never see it, you never know it, because you don’t need to … But that’s the brain trust that they had.”

    Aside from the fact that Bannon is implying that his own publication is relatively illegitimate, it seems that Bannon would have been fine with the "unpatriotic" treason if only it were executed properly.

    Well, when we get the answer to that question, we will have some idea of what is really going on.

    Yeah... I believe Mueller will hold on to that card until the end.

    Can you explain why an investigation that supposedly started with a report on George Papadopolous didn't even interview Papodopolous until January 2017? Can you explain why an investigation that started on a report about George Papodopolous chose to get a FISA warrant on Carter Page, and never got a warrant on George Papadopolous? Can you explain why the only charge filed against George Papadopolous is that he lied to the FBI in that January 2017 interview?

    I mean, what the Aussie supposedly witnessed was an admission of a crime (right?)... and the FBI never talked to this supposed criminal until after the election? That doesn't seem odd to you? And it doesn't seem odd that there were endless leaks that gave us Carter Page, and Flynn, and Manafort... and yet we don't learn about Papadopolous' status as the origin of the investigation until AFTER the heat is rising on the funding of the dossier?

    What makes you think you deserve to know any of that? It's an open investigation for **** sakes, no one is going to be answer those questions, revealing strategy etc.

    I know how frightened "the base" must be but you have no grounds on which to lay suspicion, at least until the investigation is complete. If it was released you'd be howling about "leaks"?

    Look, NOTHING being said here hasn't been said before, every line I recognize as a version of Nixon's thugs when he **** in his own bed.

    But these over-the-top accusations, renewing bull**** about Hillary is all a very recognizable strategy based in fear that Trump's exploits will be made known. But you only underscore the growing sense of a president cornered like a rat and fighting back with lies and bull****.

    To quote the right when dems were complaining of YEARS of investigation, I believe the mantra was "if they haven't done anything wrong they have nothing to fear!"

    And the Trump crowd grows more and more afraid as each new revelation comes out.
    Americans can always be counted on doing the right thing...after they have tried everything else." Winston Churchill.

    Nothing surprises the right because youse know the nature of what's going on. Youse are no doubt chuckling over how slow we are over here picking it up and figuring it out. So I reiterate my concern that is first and foremost, i.e., did Putin buy Trump's Deutsche Bank debt, or did Putin arrange rather for one or more of his oligarchs to buy Trump's debt, either at Deutsche Bank or to other investors or both. And then some.

    Everyone in NYC knew of the Trump Financial Empire's dealings with Russia over the past dozen years and more. The Clinton campaign would be guilty of malpractice had it not looked further into the connections and interrelationship. The bottom line is that Trump won with Putin's support while Clinton lost while opposing Putin in all things. American Conservatives have for a number of years wanted the USA to be more like Russia and now they've got their guy in the White House -- in the oval office besides. So no, nothing surprises youse over there.
