"And then there is Jared Kushner, Ivanka’s husband. President Trump overruled senior intelligence government officials — along with senior administration staff, including then-Chief of Staff John F. Kelly — to grant his son-in-law the highest level of security clearance. While we don’t know why Kushner received an initial thumbs down, we do know representatives of Israel, the United Arab Emirates, China and Mexico all thought him naive and open to outside influence. We also know Kushner is tight with Saudi Prince Mohammed bin Salman, and that Kushner refused to permit officials at the American Embassy in Riyadh to attend meetings he held last week.
There’s more: For example, remember when the Kushner Companies received millions of dollars in loans from a private equity firm and Citibank shortly after company officials met with Jared, who claims he no longer plays a role in the family business? But you are likely getting the idea. It’s extremely unlikely that asking this ethically challenged clan to account for their behavior will arouse the sympathies of suburban swing voters. If anything, it likely will do the opposite."

House Democrats are afraid to investigate Trump’s family. They are mistaken.

Jared Kushner Is ‘The Greatest Domestic Danger To America,’ Says Legal Expert

'Kushner is going to get us into a devastating war with Iran.'
University of New Hampshire professor and former attorney, Seth Abramson, described on Saturday Jared Kushner as “the greatest domestic danger” to the United States, Raw Story reports.
Abramson, who has long been researching Kushner for an upcoming book, said that the president’s son-in-law and White House adviser is “now the greatest domestic danger to America” because he is effectively the country’s shadow president. This opinion is, according to the former attorney, shared by many U.S. intelligence officials.
What former Vice President Dick Cheney was perceived to be to George W. Bush, Jared Kushner is to President Trump — except Kushner’s role is much more “sinister” than Cheney’s, according to the former attorney.
Jared Kushner will get the United States into a “devastating” war with Iran in order to make money for himself, Abramson predicted, which is one of the reasons the White House adviser “deserves” to spend the rest of his life in prison.
“Kushner is going to get us into a devastating war with Iran. Jared, singlehandedly. Jared, to make money for himself. I’ll say now that Jared more richly deserves to be in prison for the rest of his life than Manafort, and Manafort richly deserves it. That’s how bad this is.”
Former Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, Abrams suggested, should speak to Special Counsel Robert Mueller. Not because of the alleged Russian collusion that Mueller has been appointed to investigate, but because he knows “exactly how dangerous” Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner is.
“I don’t know if Mueller can save us from this particular danger or not,” he said.
The number one issue in American politics right now is the fact that Jared Kushner has been granted top security clearance, according to the former attorney, because this allows him to “circumvent” the intelligence community.
As reported by The New York Times, Kushner was granted the highest level of security clearance because Donald Trump demanded it, against the better judgment of intelligence officials.
The decision to grant Kushner a top security clearance was widely criticized by members of the Democratic Party, many of whom alleged nepotism and threatened legal action. But to no avail. As CNN reported, the White House rejected House Oversight Committee’s request for Kushner’s security clearance documents.
According to University of New Hampshire professor Seth Abramson, what the American people need right now are whistle-blowers — individuals willing to disclose and share with the public what the “Kushner-Trump axis” is up to.
“Our values have been betrayed in ways that we may shortly feel so keenly our heads will spin,” Abramson concluded.

"In her new book exposing Nazi Germany’s plan to control Latin America, award-winning reporter Mary Jo McConahay tells the story of Germany’s plan to divide South America into four pro-Nazi territories."
"Germans and Americans have a drastically different view of their relationship. According to a 2018 survey by the Körber Foundation and Pew Research, 73 percent of Germans described relations with the U.S. as “somewhat bad” or “very bad,” but 70 percent of Americans said the relations were “somewhat good” or “very good.”
An Allensbach study published in February found that the majority of German citizens believe that the U.S. poses the greatest threat in global politics. On the other hand, most Americans don’t consider Germany a threat at all.
Germany sees the growing rift and is urgently preparing for the break."

This Week: Five Events You Need to Know (March 9)

Germany is urgently preparing for a break from America—and for a double cross.
Germany’s Munich Security Conference in mid-February displayed the growing rift between Germany and the United States. No topic is currently more urgent in German politics than this divide. But while Germany has made diligent preparations for a post-American world, the U.S. is preoccupied with other issues and even continues to celebrate its perceived German-American friendship.
Since the conference, the German people, media and politicians have been busy visualizing a future without the U.S. “Is Germany’s Most Important Relationship Breaking?” Bild.de asked on February 25. Bild, like many other German news outlets, painted a bleak picture of future relations between the two countries.
But the Munich conference’s negative effect on the other side of the Atlantic was short-lived. Bildreported on February 18:
The Americans have traveled to Germany with a huge delegation to the security conference. But when the summit ended on Sunday, the U.S. media drew an icy balance. …
Even the lack of applause for Vice President Mike Pence (59), as he addressed his listeners with greetings from his boss Donald Trump (72), sloshed across the Atlantic. But the incident attracted little attention, because the Americans were too busy with other Trump gossip.
German commentators are worried by the fact that America is not paying enough attention to this colossal shift in relations.
Germans and Americans have a drastically different view of their relationship. According to a 2018 survey by the Körber Foundation and Pew Research, 73 percent of Germans described relations with the U.S. as “somewhat bad” or “very bad,” but 70 percent of Americans said the relations were “somewhat good” or “very good.”
An Allensbach study published in February found that the majority of German citizens believe that the U.S. poses the greatest threat in global politics. On the other hand, most Americans don’t consider Germany a threat at all.
Germany sees the growing rift and is urgently preparing for the break.
Since President Trump’s inauguration, Germany and the U.S. have had major trade disputes. This has led Germany to increase its cooperation with China, sign a trade deal with Japan, make urgent preparations for another trade deal with Latin America, and increase the difficulty for America’s big business to profit on the Continent.
Germany and the U.S. have also had major disputes concerning Europe’s security policy. Germany has been preparing for a European military and has made major headway in upgrading its own military headquarters, consolidating Europe’s arms industry, and combining Europe’s armies. Germany has also begun to question America’s nuclear umbrella and has openly contemplated producing its own nukes.
How is the U.S. responding to all this?

‘Wunderbar Together’

Preoccupied with bashing President Trump, few notice the widening rift. Many in the Democratic Party believe that they will restore the relationship after the current presidency ends. In the meantime, the U.S. is hosting 1,000 events throughout the 50 states to celebrate the German-American friendship. “The Year of German-American Friendship” is meant to show that the countries stand “Wunderbar Together.” The website states:
From October 2018 until the end of 2019, Germany and its deep ties to the U.S. will be on display all across the United States. The campaign Wunderbar Together (“Deutschlandjahr U.S.A.”/The Year of German-American Friendship) will travel across the entire U.S., bringing with it a collection of events and exhibits revolving around business and industry, politics, education, culture and science, to highlight the unique importance of trans-Atlantic relations.
Unsurprisingly, no corresponding events are being held in Germany.
It is important to note that Wunderbar Together is sponsored by Germany. Concerning the event, Germany’s Foreign Office states:
Germany is organizing a Year of Germany in the U.S.A., knowing that the United States and Germany are Wonderful Together—stronger than friends and partners. … Our friendship with the United States means a lot to us, and we know that many people in America see it the same way. That’s why the people stand this year in the focus of the German-American friendship.
Should America trust these reassuring words when dozens of signs are pointing in the opposite direction?
Bible prophecy warns that America’s allies will turn against it.

A Prophesied Double Cross

Ezekiel 23:9 reads: “Wherefore I have delivered her into the hand of her lovers, into the hand of the Assyrians, upon whom she doted.” Under the subhead “German Double Cross,” Trumpet editor in chief Gerald Flurry writes the following in his booklet Ezekiel: The End-Time Prophet:
Ezekiel 23 explains this heinous double cross. Israel is represented by Aholah, and Judah (separated from Israel at that time) is Aholibah (verse 4). Israel (mainly the U.S. and Britain) and Judah (called Israel today) become lovers to the Assyrians, today’s Germans (verses 5-7, 11-12). God then delivers Israel and Judah into the hands of the Germans (verses 9, 22).
Because modern-day Israel (primarily the U.S. and UK) trusts Assyria more than it trusts God, God will allow its punishment to come by way of its lovers. Concerning a parallel prophecy in Hosea, Mr. Flurry notes:
It will not be the enemies of Britain and America that discover their lewdness—but their lovers, such as Assyria.
Britain and America are increasingly aligning themselves with Germany (modern Assyria), and it will be to our downfall—because God is going to bring it about. There will be no more mirth or happiness in our lands.
Isaiah 10:5 refers to Germany as the rod of God’s anger and the staff of His indignation. God is angry with the sins that Israel is committing, and He is sending punishment.
The Trumpet and its predecessor, the Plain Truth, have repeatedly warned about this coming betrayal. But America and Britain refuse to repent and turn to God. Soon, they will face their punishment.
Yet one day, America and Germany will live Wunderbar Together. The Bible is full of wonderful prophecies that speak of the coming reconciliation between Germany and Israel. Isaiah 19 prophesies of a future cooperation between Assyria, Israel and Egypt (verses 23-24). But before that can happen, severe punishment will engulf the world. Request your free copy of Ezekiel: The End-Time Prophet to learn more about these prophecies and the wonderful future they ultimately lead to.

Rep. Nadler, who has fought Trump before, now wields a big gavel

1 Share
While a state Assemblyman in the 1980s, Jerry Nadler first tangled with developer Donald Trump over a planned project at the site of the old Penn rail yards. 
Trump was looking to build the tallest structure in the United States along with a TV studio, shopping mall, private park and whatever else.
Just like Long Islanders who once opposed his catering-hall plan for Jones Beach, Manhattan activists organized against it, Nadler included.
With Nadler in Congress by the 1990s, the president-to-be was still trying to get federal help for his construction plans, and the then-rotund representative fought the necessary highway changes to get Riverside South built.
"Fat Jerry Nadler is doing me a favor. He's too stupid to realize it. He's making me a lot of money," Trump was quoted in New York magazine as saying, displaying the same kind of class and subtlety he brought to the White House 20 years later.
With the help of gastric bypass surgery, Democrat Nadler, now 71, dropped much of the weight by 2001. His new battle, with the GOP president, looms way larger than the old municipal wars.
Last November's party turnover in Congress made him Judiciary Committee chairman. So the stage was well set when the committee sent 81 document-request letters to both public and private associates of Trump, a wide net that could lead to impeachment proceedings, depending, of course, on what is discovered and when.
"It's very clear that the president obstructed justice," Nadler said in a recent televised interview. "It's very clear, 1,100 times he referred to the Mueller investigation as a witch hunt.
"He tried to protect Flynn from being investigated by the FBI. He fired Comey in order to stop the 'Russian thing,' as he told NBC News ... He's intimidated witnesses. In public."
A liberal partisan? Surely. Back in the day he called the impeachment of President Bill Clinton a "partisan railroad job."
On Dec. 18, 1998 Nadler talked about it on the House floor in terms that the GOP may at some point try to throw back at him.
"The nation’s leading scholars and historians overwhelmingly agree that impeachment is reserved under the Constitution only for abuses of presidential power that undermine the structure of functioning of government or of constitutional liberty," Nadler said at the time.
"It is not intended as a punishment for crimes but as a protection against the president who would abuse his powers to make himself a tyrant. That is why Benjamin Franklin called impeachment a substitute for assassination."
Naturally, Nadler now increases in stature as a Republican target. He seemed unfazed last month when Acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker, appearing before the committee, sidestepped a question and taunted the chairman: "I see that your five minutes is up."
Nadler laughed lightly and then pursued the question, which involved the degree to which Whitaker communicated with Special Counsel Robert Mueller's office. Whitaker ultimately insisted "I have not interfered in any way" with that probe.
For his part, an agitated Trump last week tweeted a message that sounded way less composed than the "Fat Jerry" attack of 24 years ago.
"Nadler, (Rep. Adam) Schiff and the Dem heads of the Committees have gone stone cold CRAZY. 81 letter sent to innocent people to harass them. They won’t get ANYTHING done for our Country!”
Thus the dialogue, if that's the right term, resumes.

Robert Mueller Is Prepared To Drop A ‘Collusion Bomb’ On The White House, Former Prosecutor Says

1 Share
There has not yet been any public evidence that Donald Trump directly colluded with Russia during the 2016 presidential campaign, but that will soon change, a former prosecutor predicts.
In an interview on MSNBC this weekend, Glenn Kirschner said that special counsel Robert Mueller is getting ready to drop a “collusion bomb” on the White House that offers direct evidence of contact with Russia during the campaign. Kirschner said his experience as a prosecutor and a deep dive into public documents related to the Russia investigation shows him that something big is on the way. That would likely mean that the end of the Russia investigation is near, with legal experts saying it is likely Mueller will save any revelations about Trump himself until the report is complete.
“Everybody has confused Mueller’s silence on the question of conspiracy and collusion with an absence of evidence of conspiracy,” Kirschner said, via Politicus USA. “The collusion bomb is coming.”
Kirschner added that the evidence points him to believe there was a conspiracy between the Trump campaign and Russia, and believes Mueller has been intentionally slow-walking the investigation so the evidence isn’t released until exactly when he wants it to be made public.
“The collusion bomb is coming and you know what? Mueller is so strategic in what he’s doing, I don’t think he wanted to tip his hands on collusion,” he said. “I don’t think he wanted to, for example, indict one of the president’s children for some of the crimes they committed because that may have resulted in Trump trying to shut things down.”
While there have been a number of indictments and now convictions in the Russia investigation, they so far have been related to financial fraud in the case of Paul Manafort and lying to investigators or Congress for Michael Flynn and Michael Cohen.
Americans may never be able to see the full findings from the Mueller probe, Reuters noted. Republican Congressman Doug Collins that he expects any effort by Democrats to release the full Russia report to end up in court — unless Mueller finds evidence that the Trump campaign colluded directly with Russia. Collins noted that, so far, there hasn’t been any evidence to suggest that there was direct collusion.
“We do not believe there’s going to be collusion,” Collins said. “There’s no more indictments coming from this that we’ve seen so far.”
Donald Trump has maintained that his campaign did not collude with Russia, saying that Mueller’s investigation is a politically motivated “witch hunt.”

"Smarmy, slimy, smiling" - Harvard Law Professor Predicts Jared Kushner Will Be Exposed as ‘Insatiably Greedy Benedict Arnold’ – Mediaite - RECENT POSTS – TRUMP INVESTIGATIONS REPORT - 11:34 PM 3/9/2019

A Harvard Law professor tore into Trump son-in-law and White House advisor Jared Kushner on Saturday, ultimately predicting Kushner will eventually be “exposed as an insatiably greedy Benedict Arnold.”
Constitutional law expert Laurence Tribe wrote his comment on Twitter in response to a tweet by Newsweek columnist Seth Abramson.
“I’m going to tell you now the chief thing I’ve learned from many months of research for my forthcoming book Proof of Conspiracy: Jared Kushner is now the greatest domestic danger to America. And many former US government officials know for a fact that what I’ve just said is true,” Abramson wrote.
Tribe replied: “I’m with @SethAbramson here. Smarmy, slimy, smiling Jared Kushner of 666 Fifth Avenue is the beating heart of this unprecedentedly corrupt and deeply evil administration. He’ll eventually be exposed as an insatiably greedy Benedict Arnold. Read the thread and watch this space.”

Just how far down the Trump-Russia rabbit hole did the CIA go?

1 Share

“There’s gold dust in the chicken feed.” This is paraphrased from a LeCarré novel. It’s an old spy term that has now gone the way of satire, but it’s still applicable to Trump & Co. We’re all wondering if Jarvanka is selling us out, one patent, one state secret, at a time. The Chinese are reportedly partying at Mar-a-Lago like it’s 1999, and every Republican I can name seems to have taken a smiling picture with the “spa founder” from Jupiter, FL. You know, the one whose former massage parlors are accused of sex trafficking, and who specialized in bringing over Chinese executives to influence our figurehead – our prez who has gone viral with the Dunning-Kruger effect.

With talk that the Saudis, the Chinese and the Russians get the presidential daily briefing before our president does, another phrase comes to mind: With friends like these… So are we doomed? I highly suspect not. Because there’s gold dust in the chicken feed. Chicken feed is defined by the Spy Museum as, “Genuine, but not seriously damaging, intelligence knowingly provided to an enemy intelligence agency through an agent or a double agent to establish his bona fides.”

The intelligence community suspected Trump’s traitorous ties before he was elected. FISA warrants and our real friends abroad have been supplying intelligence since way before he became a serious candidate. Once the election was over and the Russian influence became crystal clear, there was only one thing to do. Put gold dust in the chicken feed.

We’re all getting impatient. The daily horror show just gets worse and worse till we’re almost numb to outrage anymore. I don’t know how much gold chickens***t we’ll ever be privy to, but I absolutely know it’s been put into the line. There’s a lot of talk of deza these days, the shortened Russian term for disinformation. This is essentially what the CIA does. It has departments and departments of chicken feed operations, and no, Mike Pompeo didn’t have the time to stop them all. If the FBI started looking into Trump before the election, I think it’s safe to conclude they had the CIA point out all their glittering “deposits.” This is the reason we don’t have action yet. Mueller is too busy with the gold rush.

Robert Mueller Has Raised Big Trump-Russia Questions. Will His Report Answer Them? – Mother Jones

The anticipation for special counsel Robert Mueller’s final report has reached a fever pitch. When is it coming? What will it say? Will it be made public? Will President Donald Trump’s new attorney general, William Barr, suppress it? If so, will House Democrats subpoena it?
And all this hubbub is about a report that may or may not contain new and revelatory information. Lost in much of the speculation is the fact that Mueller has no obligation to produce a report that details all he has uncovered. He might merely forward to Barr a narrow and short memo explaining his prosecutorial decisions…and case closed. There is no telling whether Mueller will answer the big questions: Did anyone on the Trump campaign cooperate or communicate with Russia about its attack on the 2016 election? Why did Trump and his aides echo the Kremlin’s disinformation campaign of denial? Did the Trump camp directly signal to Moscow that it appreciated Russia’s assault on American democracy? Was anything else afoot?
Yet throughout his investigation, Mueller, through indictments and other court filings, has released significant information about interactions between Trumpland and Russians—often without supplying complete accounts. Consequently, Mueller has interjected into the public record a host of tantalizing questions about Trump-Russia collusion and related matters. And this raises another query about his final report, whatever it may be: Will Mueller answer the questions he himself has generated?
Here are some key revelations that Mueller has already produced that warrant further explanation: 
In Mueller’s indictment of Roger Stone, a longtime informal adviser of Trump, he reported a fact that drew much attention:
After the July 22, 2016 release of stolen [Democratic National Committee] emails by [WikiLeaks], a senior Trump Campaign official was directed to contact STONE about any additional releases and what other damaging information [WikiLeaks] had regarding the Clinton Campaign.
The indictment did not identify the senior Trump campaign official who was told to instruct Stone to make contact with WikiLeaks. And more importantly, Mueller has not revealed who directed this senior Trump campaign official to do so. Obviously, it would have to be someone high up in the Trump hierarchy, raising the prospect that this person might well be Trump himself. Yet Mueller has chosen to keep this individual’s identity a secret—so the public doesn’t know if Trump or someone close to him made an effort to reach out secretly to WikiLeaks when that outfit was disseminating material stolen by Russian hackers as part of a covert operation to boost Trump’s campaign. 
There’s another big mystery contained in Mueller’s Stone indictment. According to Mueller’s prosecutors, Stone lied to Congress and concealed one of his efforts to interact with WikiLeaks during the 2016 campaign. The indictment noted that around the time that the unnamed person was directing a top Trump campaign official to tell Stone to reach out to WikiLeaks, Stone used Jerome Corsi, a right-wing conspiracy peddler, to try to make contact with Julian Assange, the head of WikiLeaks. After the election, when Congress was investigating the Russian intervention, Stone told the House intelligence committee that he had no emails or text messages related to WikiLeaks and the hacks. He also informed the committee that he had only learned about WikiLeaks’ plans through an intermediary he later identified as Randy Credico, a New York radio host and comedian. But, as the indictment asserted, Stone possessed messages between himself and Corsi that show he had used Corsi to contact WikiLeaks. This prompts the obvious question: Why did Stone disclose his interactions with Credico but allegedly lie to hide those with Corsi? What was Stone covering up? 
Much of Mueller’s investigation of Trump’s felonious former campaign chair focused on Manafort’s wheeling-and-dealing in Ukraine that involved tax evasion, money laundering, and illegal lobbying in the United States for a Putin-friendly Ukrainian political party. But the Manafort case also included an examination of his relationship with Konstantin Kilimnik, Manafort’s onetime business colleague whom Mueller identified as an alleged associate of Russian intelligence. (Kilimnik was indicted for collaborating with Manafort to obstruct justice and tamper with witnesses.) And Mueller’s team discovered that Manafort was in cahoots with Kilimnik during the 2016 campaign.
In early August 2016, Manafort, according to Mueller’s investigation, took time away from his duties as Trump’s campaign manager to meet with Kilimnik at an upscale New York City cigar bar. Filings in the Manafort case strongly suggested that this meeting took place at the behest of Oleg Deripaska, a Russian oligarch close to Russian President Vladimir Putin’s regime and a former business associate of Manafort (and whom Manafort at one point apparently owed millions of dollars). At this meeting, Manafort shared Trump campaign polling data, including private information, with Kilimnik. The New York Times reported that this data was shared with two Ukrainian oligarchs. But what did those oligarchs do with it? Did Kilimink provide this data to anyone else? Mueller’s crew has not said. 
Perhaps more importantly, during this get-together, Manafort and Kilimnik discussed a supposed peace plan for Ukraine that likely would have been beneficial for Moscow—and that could have led to the lifting of harsh sanctions that the Obama administration and the European Union had imposed on Russia following its intervention in Ukraine. This meeting smacks of collusion: Trump’s top campaign official discussing a pro-Moscow plan with an alleged Russian intelligence asset (sent to New York by an oligarch) at the same time that Putin is mounting an operation within the United States to boost Trump’s chances. Was there any explicit talk of a quid pro quo? Was Manafort signaling to Russia that the Trump crew was fine with the Kremlin’s assault on the US election? There is much more that Americans deserve to know about this episode, and Mueller’s filings to date leave them hanging. (Mueller could also clarify Kilimnik’s relationship with Russian intelligence. His filings have noted that the FBI concluded that Kilimink has ties to Russian intelligence, but can more be revealed about a foreigner who colluded with Manafort as he guided Trump’s presidential campaign?) After Manafort was sentenced Thursday to nearly four years in prison for one set of his crimes, his attorney declared that he had never colluded with any “government official from Russia.” Neither Kilimnik nor Deripaska would qualify as a Russian official. 
This underexperienced Trump campaign foreign policy adviser pleaded guilty to making false statements to the FBI about his efforts to hook up the campaign with the Russian government. Mueller’s filing describing Papadopoulos’ offense reads like a spy thriller, with the young Trump consultant meeting with a mysterious professor and other Russian cutouts in pursuit of forging contacts with Moscow. It famously noted that during one meeting in April 2016, the professor told Papadopoulos that the Russians had “dirt” on Clinton in the form of “thousands of emails.” By this point, Russian hackers had broken into the Democratic Party network and also had stolen tens of thousands of emails from John Podesta, the chair of the Clinton campaign. But these penetrations were not yet known to the public. One big question is, who on the campaign, if anyone, did Papadopoulos tell about the Russians possessing the Clinton “dirt” and emails? The Mueller filing does not say. But it seems possible, if not likely, that Papadopoulos did share this information with others in the campaign. Papadopoulos has maintained that he believes he did not inform the Trump campaign that the Russians possessed “dirt” on Clinton, but also has said, “I might have, but I have no recollection of doing so. I can’t guarantee.”
As the Mueller filing indicated, Papadopoulos was routinely and eagerly reporting his interactions with the Russians to his campaign bosses. If he did pass on this information, that would mean that Trump campaign officials had advance notice that the Kremlin was running dirty tricks against Clinton. This is important, because the Trump campaign and its top advisers (including Manafort and Donald Trump Jr.) denied Russian intervention in the election after news of the Democratic Party hack broke in June 2016 and after the stolen Democratic material was dumped before the Democratic convention in July 2016. Was the Trump campaign covering for the Russians?
The statement of offense in the Papadopoulos case also noted that between mid-June and mid-August 2016, Papadopoulos pursued an “off the record” meeting between the Trump campaign, “members of Putin’s office,” and the Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs. It seems that Papadopoulos was trying to set up a back channel with Putin and the Kremlin while Russia was attacking the election—and after this assault had become a matter of public discussion in the United States. Who in the Trump campaign knew about this effort to reach out to Putin? Who was Papadopoulos in contact with on the Russian side? Is it possible that the Russians saw this move as a signal that the Trump campaign approved of its attempt to subvert the US election? Mueller’s filing leaves out many details and raises more questions about Papadopoulos’ communication with Russian emissaries than it answers.
In a sentencing memo regarding Michael Cohen’s cooperation with his investigation, Mueller noted that Trump’s former fixer, who pleaded guilty to campaign finance violations, tax and bank fraud, and lying to Congress, had been quite helpful. This filing stated that Cohen provided Mueller “with useful information concerning certain discrete Russia-related matters core to its investigation that he obtained by virtue of his regular contact with [Trump Organization] executives during the campaign.” The memo did not spell out these matters or identify the Trump Organization executives. This portion of Cohen’s cooperation might be connected to the Trump Tower project in Moscow that Trump was pursuing secretly while he was running for president. (It was a project Trump essentially lied about when he said he had no business interests in Russia.) But could these “Russia-related matters” (note the plural) include other activities? And do the referenced company executives (note the plural) include Trump Jr., Eric Trump, or Ivanka Trump? A final Mueller report could certainly provide more specifics about the Trump Tower venture and the involvement of his adult children—and tell the public about the other “Russian-related matters” involving the Trump Organization. 
In many of the cases brought by Mueller, the same fundamental question hovers: Did Trump know about this? Michael Flynn, Trump’s former national security adviser, pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI about his conversations with the Russian ambassador to the United States during the transition in late 2016, in which Flynn tried to undercut sanctions that former President Barack Obama had imposed on Russia for its interventions in the election. Was Trump aware of these conversations? Did he direct Flynn to speak to the Russians? According to Mueller, Manafort colluded with an alleged Russian intelligence associate during the campaign. Did Trump know about that? In his recent public testimony to Congress, Cohen said he believed that Trump Jr. had told Trump about the June 2016 Trump Tower meeting, where top Trump aides met with a Russian emissary whom they were told would deliver them dirt on Clinton as part of a secret Kremlin effort to help the Trump campaign. Is this one of the “discrete Russia-related matters” referenced in Mueller’s sentencing memo for Cohen? Did Mueller discover whether Trump Jr. did tell his dad about this meeting? Cohen also testified that Stone told Trump in advance about the WikiLeaks dump of Democratic emails stolen by Russian hackers. Could this mean Trump is the person who, according to Mueller’s indictment of Stone, “directed” a senior Trump campaign official to contact Stone about other damaging information WikiLeaks might have on Clinton? (In written responses to questions from Mueller, Trump reportedly has stated that he did not know about the Trump Tower meeting in advance and never communicated with Stone about WikiLeaks. Does Mueller have evidence showing the president lied to his investigation?)
And then there is this nugget: In Mueller’s indictment of 12 Russian military intelligence officers for hacking and leaking Democratic emails, he noted that “on or about July 27, 2016, the Conspirators attempted after hours to spearphish for the first time email accounts at a domain hosted by a third-party provider and used by Clinton’s personal office. At or around the same time, they also targeted seventy-six email addresses at the domain for the Clinton Campaign.” Earlier that day, Trump had exclaimed at a rally, “Russia, if you’re listening, I hope you’re able to find the 30,000 emails that are missing.” Nowadays, Trump claims he was merely joking. But this is another question Mueller’s investigation has prompted: Was it anything but a coincidence that hours after Trump made this request, Russian hackers for the first time attacked Clinton’s personal office and also went after email addresses at the Clinton campaign?
***
After almost two years on the job, there is much that Mueller can tell the American public that it doesn’t yet know. His mission, though, has been to investigate crimes and prosecute cases, not assemble a final and comprehensive report that reveals all he has unearthed related to the Trump-Russia scandal. But it only seems fair that Mueller at least answer those questions that his own investigation has yielded.
