Get ready.

Trump Trump says. WH is running just fine. Nothing to worry about Mueller is just out to destroy his life and his friends.

The inner workings of the Mueller investigation are a total mess. They have found no collusion and have gone absolutely nuts. They are screaming and shouting at people, horribly threatening them to come up with the answers they want. They are a disgrace to our Nation and don’t.....care how many lives the ruin. These are Angry People, including the highly conflicted Bob Mueller, who worked for Obama for 8 years. They won’t even look at all of the bad acts and crimes on the other side. A TOTAL WITCH HUNT LIKE NO OTHER IN AMERICAN HISTORY!

Really Donald. How would you know that? You are going to get your "ringer" bounced a week after installing him.

When over 30 people have been indicted from an investigation, it's a real stretch to keep calling it a witch hunt. Of course, anyone who is not delusional knows that.

Poor President Snowflake...

It's a very simple concept.

If you can't do the time, don't do the crime(s).

That's still ongoing. Just because he was hired for something doesn't mean he's going to turn his head at all the other illegal stuff going on around that investigation.

Every, last, one of them.

Poor WCH is acting like he doesn't know how organized crime roll-ups works, and forgot that the DOJ kept some of the objectives given to Mueller secret.

If they are approved by the deputy AG to be kept under Mueller's umbrella, then they are believed to be tied to that investigation. To recap, since you've forgotten, maybe after the mid-term whipping in the House:
Their goal is to investigate the periphery, round up criminals that are useful, pressure them to tell the truth, working their way up as far as it goes. This is routine for white collar crimes that often require cooperating witnesses, otherwise you've often got not other evidence to rely on. If they made a conspiracy over a secure line that was not recorded, or in person, or in code, how are you gonna find that smoking gun? You're not.

- Michael Flynn - Trump campaigner and National Security Advisor
"Flynn pleaded guilty in December to lying to the FBI about his conversations with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak before President Donald Trump's inauguration.
Of course, that was the plea agreement, there were more crimes discovered, presumably some involving his son as well, but Flynn quickly changed his tune to cooperation after facing charges."

- George Papadopulus - Trump campaign advisor (foreign policy)
"On October 5, 2017, Papadopoulos pleaded guilty in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia to making false statements to FBI agents relating to contacts he had with agents of the Russian government while working for the Trump campaign.["

Paul Manafort - Trump campaign chairman
Present in the Trump Tower meeting, a critical meeting between operatives of the Russian government and the Trump campaign. Denied and covered up of course.
Faced a boatload of charges including money laundering, false statements, conspiracy against the U.S., all related to Ukrainian pro-Russian political activitiesTried to not cooperate,but after convicted of 8 felony counts, appeared to feign cooperation, but has not been forthcoming as required by his plea deal...
Vying for a pardon, and possibly emboldened by Whitaker's appointment now

-Rick Gates - Trump campaign "Deputy Chairman" under Paul Manafort
Faced a boatload of charges including money laundering, false statements, conspiracy against the U.S., all related to Ukrainian pro-Russian political activitiesGot busted, lied during Queen for a Day, slapped down again, finally got a cooperation agreement requiring testifying against Manafort among other thingsKey to pressuring Manafort, which is key to Trump Tower Meeting.12 Russian GRU officers (the hacking team)
13 Russian nationals and three Russian companies were indicted on conspiracy charges, with some also being accused of identity theft.
Self explanatory
Alex van der Zwaan - lied about Rick Gates contact with Ukraine
Konstantin Kilimnik - Manafort's Russian mini-me: helped Manafort obstruct justice via witness tampering
*Note: Ukraine had him, but let him flee back to Russia because they needed Trump to approve a weapons purchase for their country....
Both Alex and KK involved again with pressure on Manafort/Gates

Others:

Michael Cohen: Trump's long-time personal attorney:
Handed off outside of Mueller's team. Plead to 8 felony chages.
Appears to be cooperating now, including with the Mueller probe (Trump tower at the least).

Sam Patten: Republican Operative
Failed to register as a foreign agent - Ukraine
Involved in everything from helping get money into Trump's campaign, lobbying on behalf of Ukraine, worked with Cambridge Analytica
Note: Mueller sent this one outside of his probe, but the plea agereement includes cooperating with Mueller...go team!
Richard Pinedo: (Helped Russians unwittingly, just identify theft)

So far mostly perjury traps. Cause they're easy.

Not a single perjury trap. A perjury trap is when they intentionally seek only to catch them in a lie. In every case, they were inquiring about facts related to their investigation, at which point each one chose to lie to prosecutors.

I think many people here are hoping for a perjury trap so they can claim it as a witch hunt.

But Trump has his fingers in many pies, and we already know he is keen on screwing people (Trump "University")

And because of TU, I think it's reasonable to assume that he's involved in many shady activities.

So, IMO, it is likely that they will get him on crimes other than perjury.

I don't think the average Trump supporter would care if he bilked thouasands for every poenny they have, they'd just say "Oh it has nothing to do with him being president". In the end, even if Mueller's report is damning beyond measure, a good half of his base won't care, no matter what they say, they will refuse to believe it somehow.

As far as I know, every one of these guys faced potential charges other than perjury, and in most cases were able to plead down with cooperation.
And not a single perjury trap.

WCH is just posting bull**** as usual.

According to Trumps tweets the inner workings of the Mueller Investigation is a mess. How does Trump know this, is Whittaker feeding Trump info. Trumps keeps incriminating himself in an obstruction of justice sort of way
