I'm just working from memory but by my count the "Mueller report" on Manafort's crimes is over 400 pages excluding court transcripts, and we're still waiting on DC. #SpeakingReports

4) Bullshit 
5) Abt conspiring w/maybe Russian asset Konstantin Kilimnik but she doesn't even need to go there
6) And so
7) Mueller is free to note guidelines of what amounts to life in JUST his EDVA case
8) Glad you're happy you're not gagged Roger but are you paying attention?

We're still waiting on another (probably far more damning, if that's possible) Manafort sentencing memo but to sum up today: 1) Stone personally was not gagged, but he has been warned 2) By a judge he's stuck with 3) Who didn't buy any of his childhood buddy's

I probably wouldn't have done this if NYT had just corrected the lies they got fed by someone in Trump/Manafort's vicinity last month. My needs are modest.

In the last ~5 minutes of this I lay out why I'm not obsessed about "the Mueller report" like virtually everyone else is. https://twitter.com/PodSaveAmerica/status/1096168130294931456 …

Dan Pfeiffer’s interview with Marcy Wheeler at the end of this podcast is absolutely must listening.

Replying to @ASFleischman

Probably so. We had a 60 year old with no priors who got 20 years for a financial crime and he didn’t lie to anyone or put the country at risk. So I’m not gonna cry for Manafort.

Still a deadbeat. apparently.

Reminder: Manafort's own daughter said his riches were "blood money." And in no way just from Ukraine, either.

Could set to repeat. (Blank) would have likely avoided all of this had (they) not been Trump’s (blank). https://twitter.com/yashar/status/1096570648028016640 …

"Stenographer"?

As you read all the Manafort filings, remember that as of last fall, Mueller STILL hadn't figured out precisely how paid Manafort to run Trump's campaign in 2016, and how.

I mean, there are ways to be sleazy influence peddlers and get reduced sentences. Ask Rick Gates about that. But you can't at the same time hide a conspiracy w/Russia and get reduced time.

Quoted @ASFleischman

I mean, Manafort isn't the world's best guy. But isn't it transparently insane to put someone in prison for twenty years for a bunch of non-violent offenses? https://www.axios.com/mueller-investigation-paul-manafort-sentence-7e78d54d-ed73-43a2-a671-d697f78b5d39.html?utm_source=twitter&utm_medium=twsocialshare&utm_campaign=organic …

People get sentenced to life for 3 strikes. Manafort has had more than that. He stole $6M from taxpayers and money laundered to hide his Ukrainian & Russian paymasters. AND refused to admit what he did.

Here's a link to the redacted Manafort transcript from Feb. 13, where Judge Jackson ruled he intentionally lied to federal prosecutors and the grand jury. http://ow.ly/zN1f30nIJoE

Not only does this @RepCummings letter show super staff work, but it raises the number of Trump lawyers who have badly lied to LE/Congress to around 6 or 7. https://www.politico.com/f/?id=00000168-f319-d5dd-a96a-ff19e8430000 …

Here's the clip of Coats dodging @MartinHeinrich's questions about their report on whether RU succeeded in affecting the election. Worth watching. http://www.c-span.org/video/?c4777273/odni-shared-election-year-report …

Dan Coats Still Refusing to Provide the Evidence that Russia Didn't Affect the Election https://www.emptywheel.net/2019/02/15/dan-coats-still-refusing-to-provide-the-evidence-that-russia-didnt-affect-the-election/ … Last month Burr suggested this would be shared w/Members, but not staff. It has been shared with neither.
