Robert Mueller has even more aces up his sleeve than we thought
Source: Palmer Report
"We all knew that Mueller arrested Rick Gates along with Paul Manafort because he was hoping to get Gates to flip on Manafort, so that Manafort would flip on Trump. And frankly, this was always going to work. Gates is broke and couldnt afford to mount the kind of sophisticated legal defense team required to have a snowballs chance at beating money laundering charges. So of course Gates flipped in the end. Manafort will flip too, because his high priced attorneys cant save him now that his longtime business partner Gates is testifying against him.
But no one saw Mueller indicting the Russians for conspiring to rig the election in Trumps favor. Especially not right now, when Mueller had us all believing that his next step was to bring the obstruction of justice case against Trump. This was a strategic kick in Trumps groin to weaken him politically before bringing the legal hammer down on him. Its the kind of moment that makes you glad Mueller is on our side, and makes you hope that Mueller never comes after you for anything.
As of now, Robert Mueller is simultaneously hammering away at Donald Trump from the obstruction of justice angle thats in focus of late, the Gates-Manafort Russian money laundering angle that weve just been reminded has always been in plain sight, and the election rigging conspiracy angle that no one saw coming. And this is just the stuff we know about. If he has aces up his sleeve as mischievous as the Russia indictments, he clearly has more aces to play that we didnt know he even had."
I think Mueller already have evidence to indict t-rump, his family and many others involved. I think he's making a iron clad case. Flipping Gates is additional icing on the dessert.
Yeah, no one saw Mueller indicting Ruskies because no one knows what he's doing, especially these losers.
Gates is broke and couldnt afford to mount the kind of sophisticated legal defense team required to have a snowballs chance at beating money laundering charges.
This sickens me, the amount of money someone has should not determine the level of justice they will receive. I understand this is a different type of case to most. Im still drawn back to the 17 year old in NYC that spent three years in Rikers due to a bogus charge because he couldnt afford a proper defense and the state conducted prosecutorial misconduct. He later committed suicide once released due to PTSD from spending most of the time in solitary confinement.
All defendants are inoccent until proven guilty and with the resources the government has at their disposal all should be given a proper defense.
Now I am not saying that he is not guilty but a proper defense should be available to all. No one should have to accept a plea deal because a prosecutor can overwhelm them in legal fees.
He seems to think the Russian indictments were a surprise. He seems kind of like Trump when he suggests that just because he's surprised no one else thought of this step.
Mr. Mueller is going after everyone for everything. He is relentless. And smart.
