1. When we told you that Mueller was working with Schneiderman, we weren't just guessing. Then MSM reported it, too. Now look at this.
2. As reported earlier today, Scheiderman is "seeking a change to state law that would reshape New York’s “double jeopardy” policy." In NY people can't be tried for crimes they were already tried for federally. Schneiderman wants a change BC OF TRUMP'S pardons specifically.
3. NY state assembly is predominantly Democratic and critical of Trump, SOOO... the long arm of the law is coming to get you and the gang, Dondon.
4. "Through a spokesman, Speaker Carl Heastie said “we will take a close look” at Mr. Schneiderman’s request.

Republicans have a razor-thin majority in the state Senate. The Majority Leader didn’t comment on the letter Wednesday. " Bye bye, darlings.
5. NY state governor Andrew Cuomo said through a spox that his office is“reviewing the proposal and looks forward to working with the Attorney General on the issue.” Feel those handcuffs coming, Trump treasonweasel gang.
6. "A Democratic senator from Long Island, Todd Kaminsky, said he would introduce legislation granting Mr. Schneiderman’s request on the topic." Bloop!
7. To be clear: Schneiderman wants to make sure that not only he can convict the Trump gang, if pardoned, for other crimes they committed in NY but EVEN for the SAME federal crimes they were pardoned for, IF committed in NY. #feelthehandcuffs
8. So between the SDNY having a second branch of the investigation and NY State AG making this move, I would say that COHEN for starters has VERY, VERY good reason to be extremely worried. And equally good reason to flip like a pancake.
9. None of this is coincidental of course, everything has a timing with good reason. Schneiderman is moving now bc now's the time when SDNY is taking care of business AND when we found out Trump dangled pardons before people testified in front of GJ.
10. So Schneiderman has a very public reason for taking action. And he's doing so beautifully. Cuomo has every interest to get this done, bc elections are coming. In essence, NY may save US democracy through this change in its laws.
11. This is yet another um, incentive, to make Cohen flip faster than he can say "says who". Mind you, SDNY would find ways to make him flip regardless, BUT this is a MUCH quicker way of obtaining Cohen's cooperation.
12. You can rest damn well assured that Cohen WILL be charged, and I mean criminally. Search warrants on lawyers' offices and homes don't just "happen". They require a VERY strong case for crimes to be taking place, in order to be granted.
13. So this move essentially guarantees that Cohen goes to jail, not just for the specific NY state crimes (like the taxi medallions) but ALSO for federal crimes happened in NY that Trump may pardon him for. Meaning: "sing like a canary, or see the inside of a cell".
14. And this will most likely pass in NY. The assembly is overwhelmingly Dem and the Senate GOP majority margin is razor-thin meaning it has little chance to prevail, especially bc there ARE GOPers who can't stand Trump there.
15. More importantly, there ARE GOPers who DO UNDERSTAND the US is a country of LAWS and not a country where a corrupt nutjob abusively occupying the Oval office can so much as think of letting CRIMINALS who are his accomplices get away with crimes via pardon.
16. So keep being focused. Keep being cool, calm and collected in the fight. Do not let ANYTHING catch you by surprise OR demoralize you. Mueller and Schneiderman are always a MILLION steps ahead of the Trump gang. #JusticeIsComing /END

1. Simon Kukes, a Houston-based oil executive, sent an email to a Russian official in Moscow in July 2016, boasting of his connections to Trump campaign and requesting a face-to-face meeting. The official is Vyacheslav Pavlovsky, a former Russian ambassador to Norway.
2. NBC HAS THE EMAILS. Kukes wrote to Pavlovsky" I have been actively involved in Trump's election campagn, and am part of the group on strategy deveopment. I will be in Switzerland July 20 to Aug. 2. Let me know how you are doing and whether you want to meet." Oh. OH.
3. NBC obtained emails through a London-based investigative project funded by MIkhail Khodorkovsky, a Russian opposition figure. The Dossier Center gathers information to try to expose high-level corruption in Moscow. NBC reviewed the emails in conjunction with The Guardian.

1. MANAFORT AGREED TO PLEA DEAL WITH MUELLER. Politely bear in mind, no matter what we actually SEE of this, given the evidence Mueller has, there's NO WAY Mueller entered a plea deal without meaningful cooperation. The cooperation part? Can easily be sealed.
2. This means Manafort could easily do the same as Cohen. Just plead guilty to n. counts, and we don't see any "cooperation" agreement. That doesn't mean it doesn't exist. The two can easily be separated, with the cooperation agreement sealed for obvious reasons here.
3. I absolutely don't think the news about the "joint defense agreement" is current and I also think it is being put out for a specific reason. It's clear that there's been coordinated effort to make everyone think Manafort won't "flip" . That's the easiest way to protect him.

1. Manafort is INDEED in talks with prosecutors (MEANING MUELLER bc HE is the prosecutor in this case) about a possible plea deal. BLOOP, people. BLOOP!
2. Two people familiar with the matter "cautioned that the negotiations may not result in a deal with special counsel Robert Mueller". Naturally, bc there won't be a deal unless Manafort sings like the birdiest birdie that has ever sung.
3. "But the discussions indicate a possible shift in strategy for Manafort" No kidding. When the prospect of the rest of his life in prison materialized, Manafort finally saw that oopsie, he was cornered and if he ever wanted to enjoy life again? Best to talk to Mueller, stat.

OH IMAGINE THAT. Guess who knows all about this? Michael Cohen. Who took care of this type of business. FOR TRUMP.
2. The details of the story are BEYOND disgusting but pay attention to this detail that former Playmate Shera Bechard cites in her LAWSUIT against Broidy: "Bechard recalled Broidy telling her that he admired Trump’s "uncanny ability to sexually abuse women and get away with it.""
3. "Among Bechard’s allegations are that Broidy refused to wear condoms and didn’t disclose to her that he had genital herpes until years after their sexual relationship, according to a court filing. "
Not even going to comment.

1. Bruce Ohr is the Justice Department lawyer who was told by Christopher Steele that Russian intelligence believed it had Trump "over a barrel". Start seeing why Trump is going after him?
2. These details pertain to a breakfast that happened on July 30, 2016. Ohr described the breakfast to CONGRESS this week in a private interview. And that's how the GOP Trump lackeys went to tell Trump, he found out and decided he can't have a witness at DoJ.
3. So if Trump so much as THINKS of touching Bruce Ohr, that is direct obstruction of justice, and his tweets already constitute witness tampering. AND everyone in Congress who was present at the interview KNOWS that. Just so you know who to hold accountable.

1. What Cohen's actually explosive knowledge of facts covers, that can make the entire house of cards crash: the hacking and the Trump Tower meeting, both of which TRUMP KNEW about and in the hacking case, an event Trump even encouraged.
2. In the case of the hacking, there's a $50,000 mysterious payment Cohen made to an undisclosed tech company to help the Trump campaign, that awfully sounds like the arrangements the Steele dossier says Cohen made to pay off Russian hackers "without it being traced".
3. Cohen's lawyer Lanny Davis specifically said on @maddow that Cohen has knowledge about the hacking that is of interest for Mueller. And the detail of the tech company payment emerged from the indictment. If the connection is accurate (and it seems like it is), this is huge.
