You haven't read through the charges filed against Papadopolous, have you? Where he was literally setting up meetings between the campaign and the Russian Interior Ministry?

https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/politics ... spartanntp

Documents that were unsealed Monday showed that a federal grand jury indicted Manafort and his former business associate, Rick Gates. They were charged with conspiracy to launder money, conspiracy against the U.S., unregistered agent of a foreign principal, false and misleading statements surrounding the Foreign Agents Registration Act , false statements and seven counts of failure to file reports of foreign bank and financial accounts.

Separately, George Papadopoulos, who served as a foreign policy adviser on Mr. Trump's campaign, has pleaded guilty to making false statements to the FBI as well. That statement had to do with the nature of his relationship with "certain foreign nationals whom he understood to have close connections with senior Russian government officials."

I expected it to be more than just Manafort to be honest.

He's more used to Russian investigations where guilt is pre-determined and the outcome is a bullet in the back of the head on the court steps.

I'm actually used to people being able to comprehend basic English verbage. Such as the term getting. When I say that I'm going to the movies, that usually implies that something might happen. Not that something has already happened. I thought it was rather obvious.

Also, I live in California, but even if Russia, if someone was to kill Gorbachev, I'd be screaming for a Jury Trial :)

Personally, I like Jury Trials, and not just because I'm a fan of Atticus Finch. Also, death penalty is banned in Russia, but knowing that requires basic knowledge of Russia, rather than knowledge of Hollywoodesque Stereotypes; then again, you probably think that "Borat is an accurate depiction of Kazakhstan"

Boooooo...
Crimes committed by Muslims will be proof of a pan-Islamic plot and Islam's inherent evil. On the other hand, crimes committed by non-Muslims will merely be the acts of mentally ill lone wolves who do not represent their professed belief system at all.
The probability of someone secretly participating in homosexual acts is directly proportional to the frequency and loudness of their publicly professed disapproval and/or disgust for homosexuality.
If Donald Trump accuses an individual of malfeasance without evidence, it is almost a certainty either he or someone associated with him has in fact committed that very same malfeasance to a greater degree.

While government officials in Washington and San Juan have argued over how a company from Whitefish, Mont., with connections to the secretary of the interior but only two full-time employees secured an emergency contract that requires the work of thousands of people, the majority of Puerto Rico is still without electricity, nearly six weeks after Hurricane Maria knocked down thousands of poles and lines.


See - this is why Puerto Rico needs representation in Congress. They're being treated like a colony. And Trump's treatment of them is just sad!
