Ex-Trump campaign aide Papadopoulos sentenced to 14 days in prison
Sarah N. Lynch

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - George Papadopoulos, a former aide to then-Republican candidate Donald Trump’s 2016 campaign, was sentenced on Friday to 14 days in prison after pleading guilty last year to lying to federal agents investigating whether campaign members coordinated with Russia before the election.

Prosecutors for Special Counsel Robert Mueller said Papadopoulos lied to agents about his contacts with Russians during the campaign “to minimize both his own role as a witness and the extent of the campaign’s knowledge of his contacts,” according to the government’s sentencing memorandum.

Robert Mueller Delays Flynn Sentencing, yet again, Until After The Election

In a court document filed on Monday, Mueller and Flynn’s attorneys agreed on November 28—well after the midterm elections—for a sentencing hearing, and effectively signaled that Flynn’s cooperation with Mueller’s team could be nearing an end.

Lawyer for Russian Firm Says Mueller Is Prosecuting a ‘Made-Up Crime’
Attorney for Concord Management urges judge to dismiss indictment in feisty argument in court
By Aruna Viswanatha
Oct. 15, 2018 3:54 p.m. ET

A lawyer for a Russian company indicted by Special Counsel Robert Mueller continued his lonely legal assault on Mr. Mueller’s office Monday, saying it was prosecuting a “made-up crime” that the “real Department of Justice” would never have charged.

In a feisty, hourlong presentation in court, the lawyer for the firm, Concord Management and Consulting LLC, urged the judge to dismiss the indictment, saying the allegations didn’t fit the relevant statute and the legal theory could make a criminal out of anyone who posted a political message on the internet under a pseudonym.

“The special counsel’s office said we interfered with an election,” said the lawyer, Eric Dubelier. “There is no such crime.”

Mueller isn’t done with former Trump campaign aide Gates

WASHINGTON (AP) — Robert Mueller isn’t done with former Trump campaign aide Rick Gates.

That’s according to a new court filing from the special counsel’s team. Prosecutors say they’re not ready for Gates to be sentenced because he is continuing to cooperate with “several ongoing investigations.” And they’re asking a federal judge to give them until mid-January before they have to give another update about his case.

The filing confirms that the investigation will extend into next year as Mueller continues to probe Russian election interference and any possible coordination with President Donald Trump’s associates.

Judge Sends Warning Shot To Mueller Team In Russia Troll Case
By Caitlin MacNeal and Tierney Sneed
November 15, 2018

A federal judge on Thursday declined to toss a conspiracy charge against a Russian company that allegedly sought to meddle in the 2016 U.S. election – but also warned special counsel Robert Mueller’s team of the lengths it will need to go to prove its case against the Russian company at trial.

The decision by U.S. District Judge Dabney Friedrich, is a win for Mueller, but also signals that if the case goes to trial it will not necessarily be smooth sailing for the special counsel.

Cut-and-paste error apparently reveals federal charges against Assange
Filing in unrelated case mentions criminal charges against Wikileaks founder.

Timothy B. Lee - 11/17/2018, 5:00 AM

Federal prosecutors have accidentally revealed that criminal charges have been filed against "Assange"—an apparent reference to Wikileaks founder Julian Assange. The feds filed the revealing document back in August, but the slip-up wasn't noticed until it was flagged in a Thursday evening tweet.

The filing was in an unrelated sex crimes case in the Eastern District of Virginia. Federal prosecutors asked the court to seal its criminal complaint and arrest warrant against a man named Seitu Sulayman Kokayi—for "coercion and enticement of a juvenile to engage in unlawful sexual activity"—to avoid tipping the suspect off. But in two places, the document refers to "Assange" instead of the actual defendant in the case.

The document argues that the case should be sealed because, "due to the sophistication of the defendant and the publicity surrounding the case, no other procedure is likely to keep confidential the fact that Assange has been charged."

That claim makes no sense in the context of the Kokayi case—there's no reason to consider him a sophisticated defendant, and his case hasn't received significant publicity before now. But it obviously fits the circumstances of Julian Assange's case perfectly.

Federal Judge Randolph Moss denies a sentencing delay for George Papadopoulos

Papadopoulos will serve a 14-day sentence for ‘lying’ to federal investigators, starting tomorrow.

Papadopoulos argued it was possible the constitutional challenge in a separate case would result in his own conviction being set aside, and that he should therefore be allowed to remain free on bail. However, U.S. District Judge Randolph D. Moss noted Papadopoulos had not appealed his own conviction, having waived his right to do so when he pleaded guilty. Moss also noted Papadopoulos had not shown the appeals court case would likely conclude the special counsel’s appointment was unlawful.

Q-Nuts shocked that Sundance would quote NYTimes... :roll

Quote:
Aubergine
Ok, now I KNOW for sure that SD has been taken over by pod-creatures!

There is a whole post over there, debunking the theories around the other redacted investigations that General Flynn is involved in as being related to anything positive for our side. His source for this? The NEW YORK TIMES!
[....]


And yet... Q-Nuts accept "Q" as a reliable source? :slap

BTW
I am no fan of Sundance, but his reference to NYT story is legitimate. We all have to get out basic FACTS from somewhere. That does not mean you accept the NYT analysis. The fact revealed by NYT article is "Federal prosecutors in Virginia are investigating a secret Turkish lobbying effort that once involved Michael T. Flynn"
