FORUM POSTING RULES - Read before posting

Forum Rules.

(1) The guiding principle for posting in this forum is moderate yourselves.

(2) Don't write a post that attacks, impugns or denigrates another poster's character. There's an obvious difference between the language of humor and hateful, debased language. Know the difference and post accordingly.

(3) This is a Michigan sports forum. The forum welcomes posts from M's sports rivals. Talking smack, posting sass is what college sports rivalries are all about. Rules (1) and (2) above apply. If you don't want to view the posts of a rival talking smack or sassing, use the ignore feature in User Controls.

(4) This forum is about sharing thoughts, ideas and viewpoints about all sports, any number of subjects and issues, learning stuff from other posters and having fun. There are threads by subject matter within the forum for doing this. Keep the threads on point.

NB: The rules above are not intended to build a case to ban a poster. There are consequences for rule breaking as specified below. That's as far as it should go. Only the most egregious and persistent rule breaking would cause the moderators to consider a ban.

Due Process.

(1) The forum has 6 moderators. Jeff Buchanan, Jon, JD, Hannibal, Oracle, Entropy. None of them want to moderate adult posters who should know better. There may be posts that break the rules.

(2) Posters who, at the sole discretion of a moderator, break a rule will be given a warning post that will site one of the rules listed above as the reason for the deletion.

(3) If the rule breaking behavior continues, a moderator can remove an offending post and any ensuing post that whines about that action. If a moderator removes a post(s) the reason for the removal(s) will be posted with the removal notice that appears in the thread. This should be the end of it. Man up, take responsibility for breaking the rules. The forum moves on. If not, see below.

(4) A poster who has had a warning or a post(s) removed can certify a question by PM to any moderator about that action. Do not complain about the action or attempt to make your case in the forum/threads. Moderators shall do their best to address the question within 72h. At the end of 72h the majority opinion of the moderators responding will be the answer.

(5) Banning a poster for egregious and repeated rule breaking requires a unanimous vote to ban from all 6 moderators. We don't anticipate this will ever happen.

    I think they confiscated some funds to offset that cost. Or at least I heard that from someone. Maybe DSL.
    AA- In the last figure I saw, they had seized over $40 Million in asset forfeiture from Paul Manafort. So unless they really ran up the costs in the investigation's last months, the government actually made money off the investigation.

    EDIT: Would be a question for a lawyer, but I'm pretty sure he doesn't get that back if he's pardoned.

      and the reputations of those that have been irreversibly ruined in this process? fuck them, the government made 15 million?

      side note to Manafort... they could have gone after him several times in the past decade and time and time again chose not to.

      I will also ask what happened with Tony Podesta? in regards to the lobbying charge that Manafort got, Podesta was guilty of it as well.

                  Oh quit whining. Manafort committed numerous crimes and deserves his fate. I don't give a shit if the investigation's original intent was something else. What, if they found the bodies of 15 dead children in his basement, you would be saying the same thing? He should get out right now because the original investigation was, in your mind, tainted?

                  I actually don't think Trump will pardon him because you might as well say bank fraud and tax evasion shouldn't be considered crimes (Trump probably doesn't see anything wrong with either but he knows it's politically more problematic). I can definitely see him pardoning Flynn at some point.

                    • I don't think we are going to get the Avenatti v. Trump mano-a-mano debate we all deserve.

                      Again, the investigation was based on the Russians hacking into the DNC. Mueller proved that. Back in 2016 guys like Kapture, WingsFan and The Geezer were saying the Democrats were making that up. They clearly weren't. Kapture is clutching his pearls while treasuring the Benghazi and Whitewater investigations.

                      Just release the full report and redact the bare minimum, it should be available like the Starr Report was 20 years ago. We need to see why Trump couldn't be exonerated of Obstruction of Justice.

                      • Got to give DSL credit for coming in here today --- lots of balls (or stupid). Those goal posts can't move enough though.

                        Avenatti was interview 59 times on CNN in 8 weeks

                        CNN and MSNBC 108 times

                          We would need more testimony from his daughter on that one. I would bet more on the deceased being Ukrainian.

                            He killed 17 angry Democrats plus the owner of the Red Pony restaurant who refused service to Sarah Huckabee Sanders and buried them in his Alexandria townshouse.

                            Did you know that if the cops have a warrant to search your house for tax documents, then don't find any but find plenty of dead bodies, there's not a damn thing they can do about it because the investigation was about tax fraud and not murder? Counselor Kapture has spoken.
