Do you still have your year-old similar notes? If there was something on Trump, Barney Fife could have found it by now.

How long did Kenneth Starr investigate Whitewater before discovering Monica Lewinsky? And remind me if you would what she had to do with Whitewater?

You mistake Mueller for Devin Nunes and the rest of Trump's lackeys who seize on any tidbit of information they can find and breathlessly announce that it's the key to unraveling the Deep State conspiracy. Knowing what the stakes are in this investigation, Mueller is smart to develop as solid a case as he can (and bring as many witnesses into the fold as possible) before blowing the lid off it. What's happened in Manafort's case is instructive. Every time Manafort's attorneys have brought up some legal maneuver, Mueller has been thoroughly prepared (in fact most of what has actually come out of his team has come in sworn court pleadings). Further, every time some story breaks like the revelations about Michael Cohen, there's usually a paragraph in the story that the key players were interviewed by Mueller's investigators. In other words, Mueller is aware of everything that comes out so far, so there is every reason to believe, unless you are drowning in orange KoolAid, that he knows a lot more that he hasn't made public.

Further, this investigation isn't just into Trump. It's into the Trump campaign. Nixon was never indicted at Watergate. What will you say if "only" Trump Jr., Kushner, Cohen, Bannon and ten or twenty more close Trump advisers wind up as bunkmates at Club Fed for the next decade or so?

Think about how long after Watergate before the big guns like Haldeman and Ehrlichman were indicted. The breakin occurred June 17, 1972. Haldeman, Ehrlichman et al were indicted March 1, 1974. 20 months later.

Have I said he's gone outside his authority? No.

Trump has not gone outside his authority either.

A document by Manafort's lawyers confirms that Manafort shared election polling data with Kilimnik.

Mueller Suspects Manafort Gave 2016 Polling Data to Russian

They say Manafort didn't lie about his contact with Kilimnik; he just forgot. But they don't deny it happened. That's collusion.

Most of the juicy parts of the document are redacted, but that sentence wasn't redacted properly so it could still be deciphered.

BTW, I think Kilimnik is actually Ukranian, but he does have ties to Russian intelligence.

OMG! He shared polling data with a russian????? Was it one of those polls that guaranteed a Clinton win? If the russian wanted polling data, he could just have watched CNN. Polls are hard news to them.
CNN shared their polling data with the 7 people that watch it. Is that collusion, too?

Flock, you do realize that there is a lot of polling data that doesn't show up in what gets released to the public. This information could be very helpful in determining how and where to target disinformation campaigns.

I've gotta hand it to you. I thought you'd refuse to admit collusion unless you saw a confession or a smoking-gun video tape.

You've proved me wrong. Even a confession isn't good enough for you. --Bob

In fairness, Manafort claims that his disclosures were inadvertent.

I think what he claims was inadvertent was not giving truthful answers to Mueller about the disclosures. --Bob

Oh, dear! And a lot of polling data showed that Hillary is our president right now. You think if the russians wanted it, they couldn't buy it on their own? If you wanted it and had enough money you could buy it, too. You think Manafort and Manafort only had this magical data that the russians had to have to set forth their diabolical scheme? You don't think they could commission one on their own? Or is it now a crime to ask people questions?

You guys are sooo over-reaching. You have no common sense.

Yes, this was private campaign data shared with the Russians. The word "private" means that it was not available to the general public. A lot of that information has to do with what questions were asked, how they were asked and who they were asked of. A lot of times campaigns poll about how the public might react to certain campaign strategies they are contemplating. This is highly confidential information normally and it was shared with a foreign government for the purpose of influencing an election.

The only people who don't think there's a problem with what Manafort did are you, Trump, and Manafort himself.
