    Scoop: Mueller's hit list

    My question isn't that he isn't progressing.
    My question is there something going to happen to him or US in the meantime???

    The thing is...it’s all going to get out.
    The media is making way too much money reporting on this.
    They smell blood...and if it bleeds, it leads.

    Besides, they don’t like Trump, he’s been too much of a jerk to them. And they’re not going to give him the benefit of the doubt out of respect as they would have before and other presidents.

    Trump likes attention.
    Well, better watch out, he’s going to get what he wished for in spades.

    And he can’t claim fake news anymore
    There’s too much reality happening
    Can’t cry wolf.

    The reason it’s going to get weird
    Is because of the audacity they had acting on these things
    As if no one would ever question it or get caught.

    If GOP stalwarts, like Trey Gowdy, are saying leave the investigation alone...are saying to Trump STFU
    Innocent people don't protest this much. :rolleyes:

    F.B.I. Raids Office of Trump’s Longtime Lawyer Michael Cohen; Trump Calls It ‘Disgraceful’ - The New York Timeshttps://apple.news/ArvJqqDakRYaemhl59mH8rA

    Not a good sign for Trump cohorts...

    This is a very aggressive move only saved for criminal activities

    The great part is the raid wasn't conducted by Mueller but by the NY Attorney General because it is outside of Mueller's investigation.
    Still, any time Mueller comes across something illegal in his investigation he is obligated to pass it along to the appropriate authorities and it looks like he has.

    Last night Steven Colbert in his monologue raked TRump over the coals. It was hilarious.

    Ages ago I posted that TRump would have difficulties separating his normal (questionable?) business practices from what is allowed as POTUS. And now it seems this applies to his presidential campaign.

    TRump's infidelities shouldn't (and probably don't) surprise anyone. I'll LMAO if he gets taken down because he mixed not keeping it in his pants with campaign finance violations.

    Exactly.

    Is it me...or is Mueller getting faster??
    Mueller Seeks Subpoenas for 35 Witnesses for Manafort Trial

    Statistically...he's already moving faster than most probes. (Government/DOJ/Court -wise...in relative terms)

    I just don't think the opposition lawyers will no what to do...the Courts aren't allowing much delaying action. They're mostly punting.

    I wonder if so many Republicans in the house aren't running for re-election because they know they will have to vote in the impeachment process against Trump. However they also know the conservative base is still behind Trump as long as they get everything they want. If they want to run for office in 2022 or 2024, they don't want that vote or the loss on their record.

    Sean Hannity was Trump lawyer Michael Cohen's secret client

    Federal judge weighs special master to review seized Trump-Cohen records

    Ohh...this just keeps getting better and better...
    Should I interject a Schadenfreude cackle here??

    Only 3 clients...
    1. Trump paying off the pornstar
    2. GOP financial chair paying off pregnant Playmate
    3. Sean Hannity.... (fill in the blank)

    Y'know...this probe...seems like it's becoming a whole other type of probe altogether. :eek:
    :D

    The Mueller Investigation Keeps Growing Fast

    Almost looks like Mueller is using bazooka shots by comparison.

    A shame how much damage has been done...and is still being done until this is finished.

    Justice is blind...but she's slow as hell playing touch and go to get to the end of the hall.

    The most recent indictments from a Cybersecurity perspective (and I'm a specialist in this)

    • The DOJ indicted 12 officers associated with the Russian military intelligence again, the Main Intelligence Directorate of the General Staff (GRU) for conducting cyber operations allegedly to influence the 2016 US presidential election. (Which Trump won in...if you were hiding under a rock or unaware of which election...it all starts to blur for many)

    • According to the indictment, beginning March 2016, th 12 officers hacked into the computer networks of a US presidential candidate (Hillary and the Dems) and of the candidate's campaign volunteers and employees. In April 2016 the hackers compromised and stole documents and emails from the computer networks of 2 political committees. In June 2016 the hackers released stolen documents to allegedly influence public opinion on the US presidential election through false personas "DC Leaks" and Guccifer 2.0. The hackers also released stolen documents to political and media entities for 3rd-party publications, in August 2016 (ex: Wikileaks)

    • In addition, the Russian military officers are accused of creating and testing custom malware called "X-Agent" before it was used against the political committee networks. The hackers used spear-phishing as their initial infection vector and gained persistence on multiple computers within the targeted networks. The Russian military officers allegedly use keyloggers to steal computer passwords, as well as financial and banking information from the targeted organizations and individual victims on the network

    • The indictment also states that the hackers successfully targeted state board of elections, secretaries of state and US software companies, and they were accused of laundering more than $95,000 through cryptocurrencies (ex: bitcoin)

    • The DOJ report indicates the Russian hackers were able to maintain access to the political committees' networks despite incident response remediation efforts and countermeasures which occurred in June 2016. The hackers likely retained access to the victim hosts until about October 2016
    The DOJ indictment shows that likely nation-state cyber actors use sophisticated cyber tactics, techniques and procedures to not only target political and government organizations, but also to compromise individuals and entities that provide support to those organizations.
    As shown in the DOJ report, 3rd party targets can provide hackers with an initial intrusion vector, as well as enable the hacker to obtain additional information like bank account details, which the hacker could exploit outside of their formally tasked duties (a little side crime...)
    Security experts assess Russia almost certainly uses cyber operations as a political tool to achieve strategic political, military AND economic goals.
    In addition, Russia has a well-established history of using cyber operations as a means to influence public perspectives and retaliate against perceived public slights.
    Security experts continue to process indicators of compromise attributed to Russian threat actors to ensure companies may be able to detect and defend against potential Russian cyber activity.

    We should be aware of and pay attention to significant events between the US and Russia, such as economic sanctions, indictments and summits, to note situations that may trigger a retaliatory Russian cyber response and needed elevated cyber defense security posture.

    ------

    It's almost as if Mr. Robot came real...expect the big bad guy at the top...are Russian, not Chinese (although I wouldn't put it past China to steal...they just don't provoke mostly)

    We NEED to become hard and real about these issues.
    And we NEED to get our politicians and leaders to ACT on these threats. (stop supporting their agendas and posturing)

    Sooner or later...a bad hat nation or actor will launch a cyber-nuke...and wipe out BILLIONS of dollars (even your own)
    Much less any infrastructure or utility impact
    Or any chaos created by malicious intent.

    It will make 9/11 seem like nothing.
