Special counsel witness says he expects to be charged in Mueller probe – ABC News

I’m not sure if it’s funny or disturbing that info wars, the right wing fake news organization, would have a Washington bureau chief. In any case it seems that the man is going to be indicted by special counsel Mueller and that’s good. I’m sure the far right is going to say that they’re being Target it and I’ve noticed that those who have appeared in front of either the grand jury or the FBI in questions regarding the Russia probe have said that they may be indicted. But it also is strange that the only ones that ever say that are people like Rodger Stone. I think they want to be invited, I think they are looking for the publicity.

Why would one go out into the public Arena and say they think they’re going to be indicted? Are they got guilty?

Ryan backs Gowdy on FBI’s use of informant to contact Trump associates – POLITICO

It seems that someone has grown the semblance of a spine. Paul Ryan has doggedly supported all of Trumps bad behavior. Finally he is saying things that are reasonable.

This means there is no Witch Hunt.

I believe when Trump said that he can pardon himself he crossed a line. The justice system is very clear no one can judge themselves. We are not in a monarchy we are in a constitutional government run by three branches.

Trump thinks he’s King and there’s going to be a time when there will be a metaphorical “Off with the head”, and I hope soon.

Facebook accused of conducting mass surveillance through its apps – The Guardian

On November 11th 2017 I deactivated my Facebook account. So here I am, seven months later and 55 pounds lighter.

Sure, there is some inconveniences not to have Facebook but I truly believe that they do not outweigh the infringement upon our privacy and upon the way we think that Facebook is trying to achieve. Deactivating your account is made very difficult by Facebook and the procedure takes about 45 minutes but at the end of the day I don’t miss a single moment of the social media platform.

Did Donald Trump Jr. Admit to Violating the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act? – Lawfare

In my humble opinion Donald jr. is in violation of many laws governing elections, meeting with foreign or should I say Russian dignitaries, lying to Congress, and so these new allegations are not surprising and I believe he has done them.
