From Dec. 2017: "How Scared Should Trump Be Of Mueller? Ask John Gotti or Sammy The Bull"

HOW SCARED SHOULD TRUMP BE OF MUELLER? ASK JOHN GOTTI OR SAMMY “THE BULL”

If history is any guide, Mueller will put up with 19 murders to get his mark.

Ten South, the high-security wing of the Metropolitan Correctional Center, in Lower Manhattan, is, by design, as grim as any corner of hell. A half dozen narrow cells are lined one after the other, the overhead lights glow day and night, and the tiny window in each cell is frosted, allowing only an opaque hint of the world beyond the prison. There’s a slot in the solid cell door, but it’s kept shut most of the time, and so the prisoner’s unvarying horizon stretches as far as the four cinderblock walls. Only small noises intrude: the chatter of guards, the slamming of cell doors, the high-pitched moan of an inmate.

For over a year, stretching from 1990 to 1991, 10 South was the forbidding home of the triumvirate that still ruled the Gambino crime family as they awaited trial—John Gotti, Frank Locascio, and Sammy Gravano. But in the first days of October 1991, a cunning plan began to take shape to covertly transfer Sammy the Bull, in the pre-dawn hours, from his inhospitable cell.

***

When Gravano sent word from his cell in 10 South that he wanted to meet with the F.B.I., and that, more pointedly, he wanted to speak to them alone, the overwhelming suspicion was that it was more bull from the Bull. Robert Mueller didn’t believe it. And neither did Bruce Mouw, the head of the F.B.I.’s C-16 team that had painstakingly built the case against Gotti and his henchmen. As Mouw told me years ago, when I was writing my book Gangland, both Mueller and he, as well as just about everyone else involved in the case, thought it was a gangster’s scam. Ignore him, was the dismissive consensus. We’d be giving his lawyer—then Ben Brafman, the same canny criminal attorney now shaping Harvey Weinstein’s defense)—ammunition to hurl back at us with incriminating innuendo in the courtroom.

But Mueller had the final say, and he ordered the F.B.I. to arrange the interview—ensuring that it was done as covertly as any mob sit-down. Ten South was, after all, little more than a narrow corridor, a self-contained universe of adjacent cells. Gravano’s was flanked on one side by mob boss John Gotti, and on the other by the Family consigliere, Frankie Loc. If either of them, men who lived by the kill-or-be-killed rules of their ruthless profession, suspected that the Bull was contemplating becoming a rat, the news would swiftly be passed on to the avenging Gambino family foot soldiers. And Sammy would be a marked man.

Michael Des Barres will be live-streaming a couple of songs from his concert tonight

He's going to do it on his Facebook page. No idea when. Show is scheduled to start at 9 PM, and he has two opening bands.

He fronted the glam-rock band Silverhead in 1972.

A few years after that he fronted Detective, which also featured Tony Kaye from Yes. They were signed to Led Zeppelin's Swan Song label, and took a lot of heat for SOUNDING like Led Zeppelin (they did). At this time he famously appeared on WKRP in Cincinnati as a member of a punk rock band, "Scum of the Earth." At the end of the episode he lip-synched a performance of Detective's "Got Enough Love."

He then formed Chequered Past with Clem Burke and Nigel Harrison (Blondie), Steve Jones (Sex Pistols), and Tony Sales (Bowie's "Tin Machine" and Iggy Pop)

He joined Power Station after Robert Palmer left, and played Live Aid with the band.

He then did a few solo albums but focused mainly on acting, with his best know role being the assassin "Murdoc" on "MacGyver."

He has a new band called The Mistakes, and their live debut is tonight at the Redwood Bar in Los Angeles.

So, if you're a fan, "like" his Facebook page and you'll be there when the streaming starts tonight.

Oh, I get it! I am a very good developer, happily living my life, when I see our Country going in the wrong direction (to put it mildly). Against all odds, I decide to run for President & continue to run my business-very legal & very cool, talked about it on the campaign trail...

Alan Dershowitz: “These are not crimes. He (Mueller) has no authority to be a roving Commissioner. I don’t see any evidence of crimes.” This is an illegal Hoax that should be ended immediately. Mueller refuses to look at the real crimes on the other side. Where is the IG REPORT?

“This demonstrates the Robert Mueller and his partisans have no evidence, not a whiff of collusion, between Trump and the Russians. Russian project legal. Trump Tower meeting (son Don), perfectly legal. He wasn’t involved with hacking.” Gregg Jarrett. A total Witch Hunt!

[2016 2nd debate] Clinton lays out how Wikileaks and the Russians are trying to help Trump "maybe because he has praised Putin ... maybe because he wants to do business in Moscow."

Trump says he doesn't deal in Russia & has no businesses there.

Source: Trump headed to the G20 in a "terrible mood," "spooked and completely distracted." Has downgraded some bilateral meetings that he didn't want to do in the first place, feeling "there's nothing in them for him."
