Robert Mueller Russia inquiry: first charges have been filed

http://www.reuters.com/article/us-us...-idUSKBN1CX00V

Quote:
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - A federal grand jury on Friday approved the first charges in the investigation into alleged Russian meddling in the 2016 U.S. presidential election, a source briefed on the matter told Reuters.

The indictment was sealed under orders from a federal judge so it was not clear what the charges were or who the target was, the source said, adding that it could be unsealed as early as Monday.

The filing of charges by the grand jury in Washington was first reported on Friday by CNN, which said the target could be taken into custody as soon as Monday.

I imagine it will be no name people we've never heard of. Bigger fish, if any, won't come until later.

Scotland Yard and MI 6 apparently are permitting the Cossack mob to commit assassinations on British soil with impunity, partly b/c of all of the dirty investment rubles flowing (and being laundered) into the country, which is a pathetically sad state of affairs if so. Duuno how much, if any cooperation that could be received, if Mueller's investigation extends into England.

Manafort & Rick Gates charged with conspiracy against US. don't have time to look it up - does anyone know if conspiracy is the same as treason or is there a different legal definition? if so, how different?

I don't think it's the same. Anonymous posters elsewhere claim it's just people working together to commit tax fraud.

edit: here's an article that explains that charge:

I saw the Netflix interview and I agree. The people that don't give a crap about Americans or their well being and think that this is all a game, are winning the game.

Nothing ever sticks to Trump and neither will this . His base and the Gop like living in a alternate universe where facts do not matter and they don't give two shit's about ordinary middle class folks. Gerrymandering and power. Unless the Democrats start doing the same thing as republicans they will never win elections again. Can you imagine if any democrat had done what Trump has done ? Campaign Finance laws need to be changed and fast so a true democracy can emerge .
