    This morning, an American lobbyist (Sam Patten) who worked with Russian and Ukrainian oligarchs pleaded guilty to failing to register as an agent of a foreign power and disclosed to prosecutors that he helped a Russian political operative and a Ukranian businessman illegally purchase four tickets to President Trump’s inauguration.

    It's hard to keep up with who is getting snared in the Mueller investigation, but it's interesting to note that as recently as this year, Mr. Patten worked as a foreign agent for the Opposition Bloc, a pro-Russia Ukrainian political party, according to a court document filed on Friday. Mr. Manafort worked for the Opposition Bloc in 2014.

    No one be surprised if in Mueller's report there are findings that Russians laundry money through trump's campaign and trump's inauguration. And its not too far fetched that one of the prime motivations behind running for president was too laundry money.

    Cohen: Our friends over seas think you should run for president. They will make it extremely profitable for you. Certain loans you have would go away. At least 100 million.

    DT: Well that is something worth considering.

    I think this Kavanaugh thing may be become an huge fight; the only thing I hope is that some GOP members get the picture, that this guy was only selected because he propagates that Trump is "above the law" . Thus another "disciple" in Trump's world, which could swing the Supreme Court to get Trump of the "hook". If he gets elected, then Mueller may as well go on vacation. So during this election process we clearly will see who are the "hypocrites" in this government.

    He is an unacceptable bad choice. Democrats must find a backbone. New election in about 8 weeks. Stand strong. Republicans got Mr. Obama to wait about 10 months. Standards shouldn't change.
