Trump’s order giving AG Barr authority to declassify CIA secrets is highly unusual. Playing politics with the intelligence community will cause our sources and allies to think twice before sharing secrets with us.

You were right, . I did not see this coming. I thought the prior indictment was artfully drafted to avoid the First Amendment issue. This creates risk for the case. Could this be a result of Chelsea Manning’s refusal to testify before the grand jury?

I thought the first Assange indictment was artfullly crafted to charge hacking and avoid the First Amendment issue. Why needlessly create litigation and extradition risk by adding charges under Espionage Act?

Yes, this is a form of bribery. Soliciting bribes by bank officer. Not sure why Manafort was not charged, too.

I had the same question, but if you read the indictment, you will see substantial connections to SDNY.

New spinoff indictment from Mueller investigation charges bank CEO with soliciting bribe from Manafort. In exchange for millions in loans, Manafort tried to get him appointed to Trump’s cabinet.

President Trump covered up his contacts with Russia to help win the election and his hush money payments to a porn star on the eve of the election. Some think that makes him unfit to serve as President.

Delay is a valid concern, but the courts have been moving quickly on these orders.

“Fighting all the subpoenas“ is not a valid legal strategy. Yet another court has ruled in favor of disclosure to Congress of Trump’s records. These court orders will keep coming, and the documents will be disclosed.

Let’s gather the evidence and see what we have. I would like to hear from McGahn and Lewandowski firsthand.

Congress will likely have to file a lawsuit to enforce its subpoena, but McGahn will obey a court order.

People who file frivolous lawsuits can be sanctioned, but likely a high bar before a judge would sanction the president.

Court order to accountants to produce Trump’s records is a no brainer. Subpoenas to third parties are used every day. Congress is entitled to records and witnesses, and Trump’s strategy to “fight all the subpoenas” is legally unsupportable. McGahn is next.
