Napolitano: This Was The First Of Many Dominoes

“This is the first of many dominoes to fall. Bob Mueller is following the standard M.O. of federal prosecutors. You’ve got a totem pole, you’ve got somebody at the top of the totem pole, that’s your big prize: no surprise, it’s the president of the United States. You’re going to indict people going up the totem pole to see if you can squeeze them. Threaten their ruination, by loss of liberty or loss of property to get them to turn evidence against the top guy. This is the first in many steps in Bob Mueller’s putting together an enormous puzzle.” – Fox News legal analyst Andrew Napolitano, speaking this morning on Fox News Monday.

            And it says a lot about our society when cheating — breaking the trust you have with your spouse or partner who thinks the two of you are exclusive — is widely winked at, yet many people look at polyamory, swinging, and other forms of ethical, responsible nonmonogamy as somehow disgusting and suspect.

            If there’s a powerful god who doesn’t like those things, or who can’t stand the thought of priests having open, honest sexual relationships, he can tell us himself, without having to go through human intermediaries in fancy hats.

            There are a few devout Christians who are swingers, and have not yet been smited. Dean and Christy Parave see that community as an opportunity to evangelize, as well as to enjoy connections with other people. “Dean and I are both in agreement with this lifestyle, so we’re not committing adultery. God put people on the earth to breed and enjoy each other…”

      We call it Cabbage night here.

        • Tatonka

          You’re thinking of Kristalnacht, which is very much still in the realm of possibility.

          • safari

            Or Detroit in the ’80s.

        • Boreal

          Just an occasional police car burned but mostly rotten eggs, cabbage and toilet paper were prolific.

        I call it Monday night.

          Yup, that’s about right. It was a NY/New England thing.

      • Gustav2

        We call it, “Fuck, did you buy the candy?” night.

        • Boreal

          We live on a rural road that happens to be pretty dangerous in terms of high speed drivers and no where to walk safely so haven’t had an kids in years show up except for immediate neighbors. No pranks here.

          • Gustav2

            We only get the next door neighbors and sometimes the grandkids visiting from across the street. We don’t have beggars going house to house, most go to parties now.

          • Miji

            I grew up on a farm and so it was all done by car. One parent took us around and the other would stay home for trick-or-treaters. We only ever got visits from neighborhood friends or family. It was great as a kid though because you didn’t need to go to that many houses. Instead of couple pieces of candy, all the neighboring farms would give you a whole baggy with a mix of candy or give full size candy bars.

      Who doesn’t? And I have tried Hillary’s recipe and it seems to dry out the child a little too much.

      • Adam King

        But I can’t stand it when they turn out soggy.

        • Tawreos

          Sear them first to get a nice even browning on the skin and then roast them, you will get a better result.

          • Adam King

            Roast them skin-on? But the marinade doesn’t really penetrate, and there’s all that extra fat.

          • Tawreos

            you are supposed to feed them the marinade for a week or so before cooking so that it can works its way out from the inside.

          • clay

            Like ‘possum– feed them milk and cornbread for a week to clean ’em out good.

          • Adam King

    When I saw the headline “Napolitano: This Was The First Of Many Dominoes.” I thought he was also FINALLY coming out gay after some pedophile allegations were leveled against him, too

  • The_Wretched

    Manafort is not a ‘little guy’ and not a normal ‘start to the dominos’. Papadoupolis is a little guy and much more like a domino. That conviction plea was sealed until today. There’s every reason to expect that there’s more ‘little guy’ action floating out there.

    • Tatonka

      Yeah. That feels like the result of a plea bargain that was likely conditioned on his cooperation with the investigation.

      • The_Wretched

        I have a different take on Manafort. I’m thinking he’s been loyal to his Russian/Ukrainian oligarchs. One to protect his assets and to also protect his life (or those who he loves). One of the charges today is for Manafort lying to the FBI.

        I think that Mueller is going to get a conviction and then let Manafort take years off for cooperating post conviction. Manafort is too hardened to flip before hand.

    • Todd20036

          She’s doing what she gets paid to do: lie about everything and try to deflect attention by setting up straw men and red herrings. She’s pretty good at it, but then, carrying water for and trying to defend evangelical Christianity is great prep for this kind of bullshit.

    • True for some dogs…but not for all of ’em. If you only ever take the dog to one of a handful of places, they soon learn the landmarks.

      They ain’t dumb.

      My dogs knew: Vet (hate!), kennel (like), wooded park (love), and ocean (love-love).

      • Ragnar Lothbrok

        Exactly. My dog is telling me to go right now. She knows where we go and that I will open the door, then she jumps out and chases rabbits.

            My little dog gets groomed at the vet’s, and she loves-loves-loves the groomer (who’s one of the techs.) I take them both there occasionally on purpose just to say hello, so they have experience of going to the vet office and nothing bad or scary happening.

  • GayOldLady

    At the end of the video Napolitano said “some will make things up” to get a deal and “some will say I know nothing about the President”. BUT what he didn’t say was, then some will speak the TRUTH and tell everything they know about Trump’s collusion with Russia and his years of moving around Russian money in what’s more commonly called “money laundering”. I believe that’s what this is all about. I believe that Putin owned Trump well before he ran for POTUS and he expected a payback or Quid Pro Quo for all the money he’s shoveled Trump’s way.

    • Steverino

      Pretty much what I have thought, as well. To borrow another phrase from the Watergate era: follow the money.

    • JWC

      As much as the Trump White House leaked like a sieve and Donny helped , There had to be others .Are these now the ones that Mueller can and will squeeze

      • GayOldLady

        Remember that Mueller has been sitting on the sealed indictment and plea of Papadopolus since the beginning of October and we just found out today. There could be many more people of lesser stature that have been indicted, have made a guilty plea and are still sealed. I think Papadopolus is basically a tease from Mueller. Sort of like a “Look here, see what I already have”.

        • JWC

            At least! She’s probably worked all weekend. I bet her smile tonight will be ear-to-ear.

    • Leo

      Right there with you. Thought since Day 1. Trump’s broke so he gets his funds through laundered loans from Russia through Deutsche Bank, etc. In return he gets rid of the Magnitsky Act and changes the Ukraine platform. If he doesn’t deliver the RNC e-mails and the piss tape get released.

    • KarenAtFOH

      I’m sure trump has already taken his vig from Putin, including the Presidency, and now he’s left Putin holding the bag with inaction on the sanctions. Maybe Putin has the pee tapes, but trump’s base would just cheer those on.

    • Miji

      I agree. I think the whole Ukraine policy plank in the RNC platform was a final test to see if the Trump campaign would come through and take real action on their behalf and then they went all in. Of course team moron made it totally obvious by changing that policy and absolutely nothing else.

      • GayOldLady

        That’s a likely scenario. It was obvious to those of us who are political gym rats that changing that one particular plank in the platform, while touching nothing else, made little sense.

  • Well, I’ll be the 1st to admit my Flynn guess was wrong.

    Probably savvy choice going after Manafort this early on, seeing as how he was already ejected from the Trump camp in August ’16. Helps as well that parts of the investigation against Manafort and his partner Gates predate the Trump campaign.

    The charges against Papadopoulous are indeed the far bigger deal, for they ARE all about the collusion and in particular, lying to investigators about it. That he’s plead guilty and is now cooperating has to have the Trumpers sweating bullets today.

    OT. I get the sense that about 7 or 8 of the decent journalists that have done great reporting at WSJ want to strangle the editorial board, leave or both. Then again they knew what they signed up for. On that note:

      • I don’t see how it couldn’t, given WHO was chosen for the no-bid contract. The coincidence is too obvious.

        I mean, there have to be hundreds of power and repair subcontracting companies across the U.S., big and small, but FEMA and the WH signed off on this one? With the tiniest possible staff and no experience dealing with disaster-level rebuilding?

  • I don’t see this as a domino effect. Manafort was low hanging fruit. He was doing many things that could be looked upon as money laundering to income tax evasion, besides all the Federal Indictments are most likely linked that he didn’t file the proper forms or hid many assets that he should had reported.

    If Michael Flynn gets indicted, the most likely reasons would be his lobbying activities, and failure to report them or registered as a foreign agent, etc. etc. If he is indicted for some of his actions as an advisor to then candidate Trump, then it will be interesting.

    If Jared Kushner or Donald Trump Jr, gets indicted, then we are getting close to President Trump, given those two don’t go to the bathroom without their Father-in-Law and Father’s permission.. However we are still far away from them getting indicted

    • safari

      Yup. Nibble inward.

    • Lazycrockett

      He’s a pretty big fish. He ran the campaign and got his orders from Drumpf. This is much bigger than I thought it would be. Toss in the fact that the other guy is turning evidence to the FBI its a big get.

      • Lazycrockett

        Specially for the first round.

      • I am not denying that Manafort is a big fish, and he was the Trump’s Campaign Manager. However, Manafort is being indicted for lobbying/sleazy methods, like advising Yanukovych.

        This indictment is also sort of like testing the water on both sides. If Mueller goes after anyone above Flynn, Trump may fire him, which could set off a Constitutional Crisis. The key is the narrative, not criminal activities that were not connected to Trump, like Manafort’s Cyprus money transfers..

        • Adam King

          But…who else does he know who might have been laundering rubles and investing in real estate?

    • JWC

      Manafort will clear the way and to some extent level the playing field Flynn is more bitter and will jump horses in a minute Yup the low fruit is being picked now move up

    • worstcultever

      Well, of course low-hanging fruit first. But I’d be very surprised if Mueller doesn’t have ALL the fruit dead to rights by now. Traitor Junior and Baby-Faced Traitor Slumlord are still a few more moves away.

      Also I liked this Jared toon I saw somewhere

      It’s bad, but I want him to charge Priebus, too, just for the shock value.

  • joe ho

    Papadopolous is the big one – lesser charges but it is about collusion. And he is cooperating. Bad news for Trump.

  • MikeBx2

    New thread for Sarah’s sideshow.

  • Manafort & Gates = shiny easily indictable objects.

    Papadopoulous’s guilty plea and reports he’s been cooperating since his arrest means Mueller had tons of collusion and conspiracy dirt on him. The fact we’re learning about this only now means it was kept on the down-low and Paps there was able to give Mueller months of inside information.

    He’s actually the bigger fish in this.

    • bkmn

      Also seeing report that he was a proactive cooperator which could mean he wore a wire to get some recordings…..

  • Jim Maloney

    They showed that on Fox? Someone’s going to get fired.

    Considering how venal and corrupt his associates (former and present) are, it won’t take a whole lot of squeezing to get to the facts about the top man on the totem pole. This will ultimately be utterly dee-lish. Especially if the previous election is declared null and void and Hillary is installed as the rightful occupant of 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. One can only hope.

    Fingers crossed, but Napolitano has about as much credibility as Alex Jones. He’s the one who invented the lie that Obama had the British government spy on Trump.
