Trump startled by cozy Barr-Mueller relationship

Trump must be a lousy listener. When Barr was first mentioned on NBC, it was also mentioned that Barr and Mueller were friends for many years. Rod Rosenstein picked Mueller. Ha.

Trump Ally Roger Stone Arrested in Florida as Part of Special Counsel Probe
https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles ... nsel-probe

"Roger Stone, a longtime Republican strategist and sometime confidant of President Donald Trump, was charged with obstructing Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation of Russian interference in the 2016 U.S. election and lying about his communication with WikiLeaks.

The indictment says Stone served as a link between the Trump campaign and the release of Democratic National Committee emails stolen by state-sponsored Russian hackers to embarrass Trump’s opponent, Hillary Clinton. It also provides yet more examples of alleged witness tampering and cover-up in the Mueller investigation, which has resulted in seven guilty pleas or convictions and more than two dozen other charges."

Most of the Watergate crew went to "county club prisons".

Stone is hoping for a pardon. If Trump does that, it's hard evidence of a coverup and that might lead to impeachment (or at least another charge for impeachment).

In an Aug. 2 exchange, Stone’s WikiLeaks contact suggested the group would start spreading rumors about Clinton, identified by her initials, HRC, and her fitness to be president. “Would not hurt to start suggesting HRC old, memory bad, has stroke,” the person tells Stone, according to the indictment. “I expect that much of next dump focus.”

Ahh, takes me back to the days of oft-stated "concern" from folks like Ned and youmustbejoking regarding her health. Good times. Glad she pulled through!

Trump and Associates Had More Than 100 Contacts With Russians, WikiLeaks Before Inauguration

President Donald Trump and at least 17 of his campaign officials and advisers had as many as 100 contacts with Russian nationals and WikiLeaks or their intermediaries before the U.S. leader was sworn into office, a new analysis from The New York Times shows.

Why is it that politicians lie for so long before they take responsibility and get out of denial?

Same reason anyone else who does something wrong lies. They hope to avoid the consequences for what they have done.
