The Forum needs your support!!

As you shop this holiday season, please remember to use the forum's Amazon.com link (listed in the menu as "Amazon Link") to add items to your cart and purchase them. The forum gets a small commission from every item sold and the commission increases based on the number of items sold in a month. (So even buying a 99 cent MP3 helps!)

Additionally, the forum gets a "bounty" for various offers at Amazon.com. For instance, if you sign up for a 30 day free trial of Amazon Prime, the forum will earn $3. If you create a wedding or baby registry, the forum earns $3. And creating an Amazon Business account will send a $15 commission our way.

If you have an Amazon Echo, you need a free trial of Amazon Music!! We will earn $3 and it's free to you!

Your personal information is completely private, I only get a list of items that were ordered/shipped via the link, no names or locations or anything. This does not cost you anything extra and it helps pays the operating costs of this forum which continue to go up as our commissions have gone down. Thank you for your support!! --Deborah

    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.
