REPORT: Mueller’s Team Has Amassed “Mountain Of New Evidence” From Trump Campaign And Transition

Yahoo News reports:

As described by sources familiar with various aspects of the investigation, the Mueller probe is fast approaching a critical crossroads. The president’s lawyers, Ty Cobb and John Dowd, are pressing Mueller to wind down the investigation and exonerate their client, which they have assured the president will happen by early next year.

But the sources familiar with the probe say that such a rapid conclusion is — as one put it — “fanciful.” Mueller and his team, they say, are pursuing new leads, interrogating new witnesses and collecting a mountain of new evidence, including subpoenaed bank records and thousands of emails from the campaign and the Trump transition.

In just the last few weeks, his prosecutors have begun questioning Republican National Committee staffers about the party digital operation that worked with the Trump campaign to target voters in key swing states. They are seeking to determine if the joint effort was related to the activities of Russian trolls and bots aimed at influencing the American electorate, according to two of the sources.

      Well, hopefully not.

    • Chucktech

      I’m willing to bet that Robert Mueller, no fool, he, has made contingency plans to ensure his work won’t be damaged or destroyed in the event of his firing. I’ll bet that the New York DA Schniederman is part of that contingency.

      • bkmn

        I fully expect Mueller has been sharing all documents he has gotten from Deutsch Bank with Schniederman, including the stuff on Jared.

        • William

          Just so long as everything is being backed up to a computer in Canada.

  • TexasBoy

    LOCK THEM UP…ALL OF THEM!

  • Chucktech

    Robert Mueller is my hope for a better 2018. I’m even beginning to dare to have hope for the 2018 election.

    • bkmn

      A new round of indictments, just in time for the New Year, would do a lot for our morale.

    • Galvestonian

      How about Mueller for Presnit … Yeah, I realize that he’s a Republican but I think that he’s not a sellout traitor like the rest of the GOP.

      • Prost Seattle

        I wonder if there’s going to be a primary battle in 2020 for the GOP.

  • BlackGayVeganAtheist
  • Steverino

    No wonder Trump’s minions and lackeys in the House and Fox News are getting “buggy.”

  • Bambino

    Yahoo news though……..

    • Chitown Kev

      yeah, but Isikoff is a good reporter…I’ve gotten even more into the habit of looking at bylines lately

      • whollyfool

        Thanks. I was thinking the same as Bambino.

        • marachne

          Issikof is interesting his whole family, including me (I’m a cousin) was way p.o.’d at his Clinton book, but he seems to have gotten back on track after that. He’s a good investigative reporter

      He’s gotta collect at least another year of government billing hours.

      • gaycuckhubby

        I love your cynical heart 😁

        • Treant

          Merely realistic. Mueller is a registered Republican, in the age of Trump and Moore. He’s collecting a government check.

          There’s no way he’s honest.

          • RoFaWh

            He’s an employee. Of course he gets a “government check”. One every month or two weeks, at that.

            Your attempt to smear a decent man has failed.

          • Treant

            Decent? Citation required, when dealing with members of his own party.

            At this point, you can’t claim that either. The best anybody can say is neutral.

  • Lazycrockett

    At this point I wouldn’t be surprised to see some Leaders of the RNC being charged with collusion with Russia.

      I hope Rinced Penis is at the top of that list.

      I wouldn’t be surprised to see a lot of GOP Senators and House Members found guilty of accepting campaign contributions from the Kremlin. This is going to get really ugly.

      • William

        I think Putin has collected kompromat about the republican leadership. Mitch? Closet case. Lindsay? Ditto. What will be more interesting is the others, like Ryan and Hatch? Are their secrets financial or things on the naughty/perverted side.

        • matrem

          Remember when Ryan silenced mention of Trump’s connections with Russia during that closed meeting with other reps? Mueller does.

          • William

            So many of them seemed to have flicked a switch and suddenly changed their opinion of Trump. That tells me there’s some there there.

          • dagobarbz, fine Italian shoes

            Yep. They’ve turned on Il Douche because they want to stay on the gravy train government positions have become.

            It may be much easier to take back the house than anyone heretofore thought.

        • GayOldLady

          Ryan is likely all about the money. And oh how I wish Orrin’s was something on the naughty list. He’d have a tough time taking that back home to Mormon country. Regardless, I think Ryan is finished as of this year. I don’t think he’ll run again and I think Iron Stache is going to take that seat.

          • Rambie

            Ryan is going to declare victory and go jump into the arms of some lobbyist firm.

          • Prost Seattle

            Ryan is going to cash in his chips before the sh!t hits the fan.

          • MaryJOGrady

            Oh, I so hope Iron Stache takes that seat!

          • RoFaWh

            The current thinking about Orrin is that his magic undies have copper rivets at the stress points. Helps keep him on the straight and narrow.

        • Rambie

          Orin is all about the money too. He’s amassed a fortune by selling his vote while in office. Why do you think the “supplement” industry is so big in Utah? Who do you think shepherded bills to exclude them from many FDA rules.

      • Priya Lynn

        Maybe that’s why they’re so panicked to end the investigations into Russia collusion.

      • Hank

        Do NOT forget Herr Drumpf’s “bitch” Nunes!!!

      • Galvestonian

        One can only hope.

      • RoFaWh

        Lemme tell ya, ol’ dear, you ain’t seen ugly yet. If the US survives Trump and his coterie of crooks, there will have to be changes to prevent a recurrence, starting with crazies being forbidden to run for office, with belief in any conspiracy prima facie evidence for craziness.

        But it won’t stop there. Realistically, you have to not only try to stop crazies and criminals from being elected, but also have to have ways to boot them out when the inevitable infiltrators are discovered.

        A biggie: confiscatory income tax rates, hopefully well above 100% in the top bracket.

        Now think of the probable resistance to such changes! It will be ugly, no two ways about it.

    • nocadrummer

      I’ve said since the beginning that I suspect McConnell and Ryan are in on the deal.
      There’s some others that I highly suspect as well, including some involved with tampering with voting machines.

      I’m sure of it. And some democrats. I have a feeling there’s a lot of Russian roots in our political system. :/

      We all need to keep in mind Putin is getting pissed now as well. That doesn’t bode well for the elephants.

      • RoFaWh

        It may be that Trump is now too old to be a reliable agent for Putin. Fortunately, there was no Trump on the horizon of national politics when he was young enough to do Putin’s dirty work.

    I’ll get excited when I see action. I have no doubt that the Mueller team is working very hard and diligently, but until they find real evidence of wrongdoing it won’t mean much.

    • Jonathan Smith

      he wont make a move until he can PROVE he’s got the goods.

      • gaycuckhubby

        Good! I would expect nothing less, and until that happens I won’t get my hopes up for every breathless report about them closing in on Trump

      • William

        … and back that proof up three ways to Sunday.

    • lymis

      Oh, they’ve found real evidence. No doubt. What seems equally clear is that every rock they turn over just leads to more. I don’t expect them to stop until they think they’ve got all of it.

    December 1, 2020: Mueller: ‘Our team has determine that the President has done some not so nice things, but since he’s out of office, it doesn’t really matter. We’ll just burn that for you.’

      December 2, 2020: As Attorney General of New York, I bring the following charges against the Trump Organization…

      • Treant

        Maybe, but I’m quite sure that Mueller will reserve all the bad stuff and bury it. Dumpster can delay state courts long enough to die before the charges ever come to a courtroom.

        • Jonathan Smith

          oh, i have NO problem with that………..there ARE his kids to go through…….

        • RoFaWh

          Something no one seems willing to say: Trump is old enough and fat enough and out of shape enough that he could kick the bucket at any time.

          Admittedly, he probably refuses to contemplate his own mortality. I wonder if he’s actually made a will ― a surprisingly fraction of the population hasn’t, out of some misguided fear of death.

  • safari

    One thing that I learned is that while Mueller’s purview is restricted, if additional crimes are discovered another investigation outside of Mueller’s team can be spun up to follow that.

  • Skeptical_Inquirer

    Are Donald’s lawyers exercising client control or are they just padding their billing hours by telling him what he wants to hear?

      they are LAWYERS. so, yes.

      Yes. And in stereo since they won’t speak to him alone.

        I bet they insist on being paid daily, in cash.

        now knock it off before you make me get Twitter

    • Treant

      Well, it is a useful thing with which to bait the paranoid, I’ll give you that. 🙂

      But really, Dumpster has committed obstruction of justice in public and admitted to it via Tweet, and yet we can’t even get a single change up against him? Please.

      • gaycuckhubby

        As a Critic of trump I would be very worried about going to trial with evidence that is in the public domain. It seems incredibly weak And I’m pretty sure any judge would toss it out.

        • Treant

          Mebbe. But if I stood outside in public screaming, “I murdered nine people and used their remains to fertilize my garden”*, I’m quite sure that, if recorded, it would end up at trail.

          * This confession is not intended to state that nine people have been killed, nor that they were used to fertilize my garden. This is not a public admission of guilt and any charges must be proven in a court of law by separating any remaining DNA from the lye used to destroy it. Good luck with that, suckers.

          • Jonathan Smith

            NICE flowers though………..

          • Treant

          • Karl Dubhe 2

            Any trial would require that there actually be bodies, or remains, in the place you claimed.

            There are nutters in every city who walk into the local police station to claim that they did all manner of things. Most of them aren’t charged, although the police will probably have a look to make sure. 🙂 Or, at least, I hope the police do.

          • Treant

            True, although in this case the proof is literally in the claiming; the Tweets that admit to obstruction of justice are, themselves, intended to create obstruction of justice.

            So it’s more like I stood in a crowded theater and screamed, “FIRE! FIRE! Also, there are nine bodies…” 🙂

            I could be charged for inciting a riot just for speaking–and it’s true. The body part can be charged later and separately if proven.

          • Ben in Oakland

            I walked into the local police station on Christmas and told them I had just completed ten hours of buttsex with Ryan Reynolds and Grant gustin.

            An allegedly true story about a man in Williams Lake, BC: he had an arrangement with the barber shop to receive all their sweepings, which he dug into his veggie garden as a very slow release source of nitrogen.

            One day a cop was driving by and noticed the hairy garden beds. And investigated, to be sure he didn’t have a mass murderer on his hands.

            [There’s no real punchline to this account.]

            No, I’m just saying the evidence that we have gotten a chance to see in the public about obstruction of justice has been very weak and I don’t think would stand up in a court of law

          • The_Wretched

            No, the evidence on obstruction us over whelming and includes Trumps own admission that he fired Comey to end the investigation. That’s the definition if obstruction.

            Your right-wing spinning is obnoxious.

          • gaycuckhubby

            LOL… oh I love the internet! Not often I get a chance to be labeled right wing. Thank you for bringing a smile to my face

        • customartist

          I have the utmost confidence in Mueller. By the time he has completed the investigation there will likely be a Democratic Congress to adjudicate the findings, which is good, but there may also be a conservative SCOTUS to re-adjudicate everything, which is bad. Stay tuned America.

          • Jim Gallagher-Barker

            There will be no “re-adjudication,” except (possibly) in the court of public opinion.

            If the charges brought by Mueller go to impeachment, i.e. the impeachment (similar to an indictment or finding of cause) by the House of Representatives & trial in the Senate, the process has nothing to do with the Supreme Court. Per Article 2 of the Constitution, the power of impeachment is reserved to exclusively to the Congress and there is no appeal to such a conviction.

            Specifically, the US Supreme Court has held that there is no judicial review to a federal impeachment trial held in the US Senate. This was in a case entitled Nixon v. United States (1993) that actually had nothing to do with Richard Nixon.

          • customartist

            I guess I was thinking about Criminal charges. I have a flair for fanciful thinking.

          • Jim Gallagher-Barker

            Oh, I can’t wait for the criminal charges. They’ll come after the impeachment. If not for Trumpf, then definitely for Ivanka, Jared, Jr & Eric, and flowing out from there like the Mississippi into the delta & gulf. My imagination just teems with images of short little senators, tall skinny representatives & douchey WH officials floating around for hours without life preservers… some of them with 100# weights around each of their ankles, even (:cough: Gorka :cough: Miller :cough:)

            I admit to my own fanciful thinking.

          He flat out said to Lester Holt that he fired Comey over “the Russia thing”. Look up obstruction of justice in the dictionary and there’s Trump talking to Lester Holt.

          • gaycuckhubby

            I hear you and I understand that argument. I just think it’s not concrete evidence enough that he planned something. I’m not sure many judges would be willing to charge someone over a one word sentence that they made it public. I think there has to be some kind of evidence to back this up emails other sworn testimony something.

    • teeveedub

      They do know, at least, that he’s got tons of (probably incriminating) emails as well as testimony from two parties that have pleaded guilty and presumably have little left to lose. It’s also possible/likely that Papadopoulos was wearing a wire in the months between the time he was arrested and the time that the rest of us (including Trump) learned that he had been arrested.

    • Boreal

      They just tell dump what he wants to hear to avoid a temper tantrum.

  • LeeCMH

    Peeling back the onion, revealing its rotten core.

  • teeveedub

    I’ve been saying that this appears to be a massive international criminal enterprise, designed to upset the balance of power in the world and make millions/billions for those who are initiating it. It likely has many tentacles, reaching into multiple foreign entities. It’s not a military coup, or even a so-called bloodless coup. A more appropriate term would perhaps be an “invisible coup,” intended to be an unprecedented takeover of power before anyone realizes that it’s happening.

    • billbear1961

      Well, it’s not invisible, and people who PRETEND that bastard and his henchmen are LEGITIMATE are full of SHIT.

      Both Trump AND the GOP who are aiding and abetting him should be stripped of ALL authority!!

            That might be a very good choice. It will demoralize those waiting in line and improve the quality of their a’weepin’n’a’wailin’ when their own turns come, to the greater amusement of the assembled mob. We could have the women’s choir from a black church for musical backup.

          Yeah, I used to use our dog as my avatar. But he has recently passed away, so I decided to change it.

          • vorpal

            So sorry to hear about the loss of your doggy. He was a real cutie. I noticed the change of avatar as well and it took me a second to realize it was you.

            It’s been a bad year for pets. One of our kitties died a few weeks back, and I know lots of other people who have lost pets this year.

          • Thanks. Yeah, it’s hard that dogs and cats and other pets don’t live as long as humans do, but we do love them while we have them, right? =)

          • vorpal

            It’s tragic that we get so incredibly attached to these beautiful little beings, and their lives are way too short.

            Our girl kitty, Rapunzel (aka Punz) died when she was only nine years old, which is very young for a cat. We didn’t expect that at all.

            Do you think you’ll be getting another doggie any time soon?

            Many people here in Chile treat animals like a disposable commodity: if they, for example, go on vacation, they just put the animal outside and see if it’s still around when they get back, which explains the fact that almost every block has a stray dog on it.

            I don’t understand that at all. Our cats are like our babies. I would do anything for them.

          • I’m sorry about your cat. That is fairly young.

            Our dog, Murphy, was 15. I knew he wouldn’t live forever, but it still hurt. We don’t yet know if/when we’re going to get another dog. I’d certainly like to.

            That’s awful, with regards to leaving pets around like that. When I went to California one time to see my sister, my wife took our dog to her parents’ house when she visited them for the weekend. We wouldn’t have simply left him alone.

            We used to bring our cat, Felix, with us everywhere in the car because he hated to be left alone. He also used to sit on my husband’s shoulder as we took him into the jungle to explore a bit and chase geckoes.

            Our gal Punz, that died, was a very special girl for us… she came to us at a very difficult time in our lives, and really helped the family maintain joy and mirth.

            We found a lady who had taken in two litters of feral kittens about two weeks after Punz died, and now we’re stuck with this unholy, adorable nightmare. I don’t know how one pound of kitty can make such incredibly loud noises…

      Mr. Bear, could I ask for your wise suggestions on the query I posted yesterday requesting music recommendations?

      Thanks much!

    This is some good news. YAY. Anything that helps to rid us of this regime is good news.

      We must simultaneously evict Pence, and annul the election, calling for another.

      • kaydenpat

        True.

    Surely Muller is not inclined to speed up and/or conclude his investigation, wasting his efforts by turning it over to the Republican Congress which is CLEARLY inclined to ignore any evidence implicating Trump, but will rather have the newly elected [and likely Democratic] Congress to adjudicate his findings. Vote! Vote! Vote! And get everyone you know to do the same.

    We want to give dRumpf the warmest “Merry Christmas” he’s ever had!

    I have a sneaking suspicion that this is going to play out emotionally in a way similar to the way we bitched and moaned about Obama and same-sex marriage. Painfully slow…and then BLAM! “THANK YOU, Mr. Mueller!!!”

    • ooh that sounds like some of my best sexual encounters

  • Cobb and Dowd no doubt were also the ones who assured their client he’d receive his “letter of formal full exoneration” THIS year. Only that ain’t happening and never was, but their client is, after all, a demented madman.

    So now they’ve moved the goalposts, hoping Donald will just keep waiting.

    The question then is, “Why would they tell their client this rather obvious lie? Mueller’s investigation is clearly going to run many more months and the first two sets of indictments (Manafort/Gates and Flynn) are just the opening salvo?”

    Answer: To keep their client from committing even more crimes, above and beyond those he’s already committed, including most visibly the obstruction & witness intimidation. Given these require proof of corrupt intent, they’re also the easiest defend against, especially if one can secure a sympathetic judge. They also likely want to keep Donald from issuing preemptive pardons, due to the fact that acceptance of such is considered an admission of guilt AND it waives any 5th Amendment self-incrimination protections for future questioning on any matters pertaining to the crimes just pardoned.

    I suspect they also know their best bet right now is to slow walk everything as much as possible, drag it out, because the day Donald tries to fire Mueller, the following will happen:

    – Mueller will challenge the firing in federal court, buying himself at least a few weeks time
    – A ton of incriminating evidence will suddenly end up in NY AG Schneiderman’s office, including most of the RICO money laundering and sanctions violation details
    – Demonstrators will take to the streets in massive, unprecedented numbers
    – Whatever indictments Mueller has prepared ahead of time will be unsealed, and frankly I don’t believe there’s any doubt some of them already will name Trump under the crimes of obstruction and witness tampering

  • That_Looks_Delicious

    I’m all teased out. Actual fucking indictments, please. Otherwise I don’t want to hear any more tease stories trying to make me believe that America is still a functioning democracy.

  • CharlestonDave

    When is this reclassified as edging?

  • dagobarbz, fine Italian shoes

    This is more bigly than Enron, which was a Gordian knot crossed with a clusterfuck.
    I don’t envy them the task, but it is vital and a worthy effort if we are to remain a democratic republic.

    • canoebum

      Maybe Trump will do us all a favor and go full Ken Lay when the report is issued. I wouldn’t shed a tear, I can promise that.

  • Jim Gallagher-Barker

    I get that Isikoff is a good reporter. But Mueller’s team, unlike the Trumpster fire’s team, just hasn’t leaked. Which leads me to the question: How much of the article is sourced news and how much is speculation? Even on the part of the “sources familiar with the investigation.”

    If you watched Joy Reid (in for Rachel again) tonight, the investigation is also going in the direction of the collusion between Russian hacker Guccifer 2.0 and the *Congressional* Rethugs: Paul Ryan is gonna go down before this over, too! 😀
