Better discussion, Rory, not wet fart ejaculations.

Is your point that Kogan is just an innocent, or that he doesn't have any ties to Russia?


There's no discussion happening. It's a data dump, torrent of copy pasta. You know that, I know that, they know that

You might want to hold your fire on that snark-cannon, Rory.

PS - On the other hand, I guess there's something to be said about getting your licks in while you still can.

But seriously, we shouldn't be [XXX], not even a little bit. Their flailing attempts to change the subject and appear clever are wasted on those who know better. Besides, their masters (unconscious though they may be) would be better served if they joined their fellow [XXX] on Twitter, where there's safety (from scrutiny and/or rebuttal) in numbers.

Lmao. I love irony.


https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_pot ... ttle_black

"The pot calling the kettle black" is a proverbial idiom that seems to be of Spanish origin, versions of which began to appear in English in the first half of the 17th century. It is glossed in the original sources as being used of a person who is guilty of the very thing of which they accuse another and is thus an example of psychological projection.

When you're not copy and pasting ad nausium, you're trolling and snarking at other users.

telling you to read something before you make a comment is trolling?


i.e. Russia

when are we going to get back to the subject of this thread?

back on topic

speaking of Manafort ...Russia and Cambridge Analytica

Kushner, Manafort were primary players in hiring Cambridge Analytica for Trump campaign

Jared Kushner, Paul Manafort and Brad Parsquale were involved in hiring the British-based political data firm, which improperly accessed personal data from Facebook users. NBC’s Anna Schecter reports.
https://www.msnbc.com/andrea-mitchell-r ... 9530691843


Paul Manafort and Rick Gates are central figures to this investigation, allow me to expand below. A Russian Oligarch, Oleg Deripaska, worked with them for years. Oleg Deripaska was recently in the news, he was the oligarch that was recorded by an escort. The recording shows him meeting a Russian Deputy Prime Minister a month after Manafort had established email correspondence with Deripaska. They were likely exchanging intelligence.
Rick Gates has been Manafort's right hand man for years and was very involved in the Trump campaign even after Manafort stepped down as Campaign Manager. Rick Gates is reportedly pleading guilty to charges laid out by Special Counsel Mueller's indictment, a clear indication that he is ready to cooperate with investigators.[1]
Email correspondence between Russian Oligarch Oleg Deripaska and former Trump Campaign Manager Paul Manafort will be important in understanding why Manafort is a key figure to this investigation. According to videos recorded by an escort that were discovered by Russian opposition activist, Alexei Navalny, show Deripaska meeting a Russian Deputy Prime Minister on a yacht 1 month after the email correspondence between Manafort/Deripaska took place.[2] Russia has threatened to block access to social media sites, such as YouTube and Instagram, if they do not remove the videos of Deripaska and Russian Deputy Prime Minister Prikhodko meeting on the yacht.[3]
Paul Manafort was brought into the Trump campaign as Chairman to corral delegates at the convention, it was at this time where the Trump campaign pressured the GOP to make a specific change to the platform. An amendment proposed that the GOP commit to sending lethal weapons to Ukraine to fight Russian aggression was softened considerably at the request of the campaign.[4] Paul Manafort has since been indicted by Special Counsel Mueller.[5]
We know Paul Manafort offered to give a Russian billionaire private briefings on the campaign trail, the oligarch was Oleg Deripaska.[6] Paul Manafort used a campaign account for the aforementioned email correspondence.[7]
Gates and Manafort's ties to Deripaska are deep and date back at least a decade. They partnered over a massive real-estate deal in 2008.[8]
Back in 2006 Paul Manafort offered a deal to Russian oligarch Deripaska where he indicated he would offer a great service in pushing Putin's policies abroad. He was paid very handsomely by Deripaska.[9]
Manafort pitched the plans to aluminum magnate Oleg Deripaska, a close Putin ally with whom Manafort eventually signed a $10 million annual contract beginning in 2006, according to interviews with several people familiar with payments to Manafort and business records obtained by the AP. Manafort and Deripaska maintained a business relationship until at least 2009, according to one person familiar with the work.
“We are now of the belief that this model can greatly benefit the Putin Government if employed at the correct levels with the appropriate commitment to success,” Manafort wrote in the 2005 memo to Deripaska. The effort, Manafort wrote, “will be offering a great service that can re-focus, both internally and externally, the policies of the Putin government.”
In 2014 Deripaska sued Manafort for a cool $19 million claiming that Manafort and Gates had stolen funds intended for an investment.[10] The Associated Press were the first ones to discover their business dealings and Deripaska attempted and failed at suing the AP for libel.[11]
Furthermore, Paul Manafort worked as Trump's campaign chairman for free.[12] In 2006 Manafort bought a condo in Trump Tower.[13]
Paul Manafort was present at the infamous Trump Tower meeting where adoptions were discussed with Russian operatives.[14] Adoptions is an established euphemism used in reference to the Magnitsky Act, sanctions that are meant to cripple the power of Putin.[15] President Trump's son, son-in-law, and Campaign Manager met with Russians with the expectation of receiving damaging information about Clinton.[16] One of the Russian operatives present at the infamous Trump Tower meeting, Rinat Akhmetshin, has ties to Russian intelligence and has a history of being embroiled in court cases related to hacking campaigns.[17] During Simpson's Congressional testimony he confirmed that the Trump campaign likely received foreign intelligence aid as Manafort had close ties to Russian Intelligence.[18] Manafort seems to have returned the favour via Deripaska.

Ok, this is better, somewhat substantive.

Now this is curious: your hypothesis is that Mueller knew going in to his position as Special Prosecutor that there was no Russia there? Is your contention that the thirteen Russian indictments are just empty window dressing?

And if so, isn't that just a wee bit off-topic?
