Robert Mueller – who is he indicting on Monday? Consider Coulter’s Law, no matter how informal it is. We have not heard a single thing about who this person is. If it was someone who was detrimental to Trump and the right-wing Overton-Window adjustment movement, there is no doubt in my mind we would already know their name.
My vote is on Podesta. Anyone have a better name? If it’s Manafort, it’s practically the same thing since him and Podesta were in league together. Speaking of which, if you take a step back and look at it – the two people in charge of each campaign were aligned with the same goal:
Manafort – Trump
Pedosta – Clinton

Yanukovych is a well known Putin stooge.
The article cited above is from February 9, 2010, long before the presidential campaign began. In fact, it was written before the previous campaign in 2012!
“Fusion GPS allegedly failed to register under the law for work it was doing to advance Russian interests by repealing sanctions against human rights violators, and it was doing this work at roughly the same time it was producing the unverified Trump dossier, which relies heavily on Russian sources,” Foy said.
“So of course it would be relevant both to the committee’s review of FARA enforcement and the dossier.”
There is another player now alleging that Fusion, in a case completely unrelated to Russia or the Magnitsky Act, acted in violation of FARA.
Thor Halvorssen, the founder of an organisation called the Human Rights Foundation, wrote in testimony submitted to the committee on Tuesday that Fusion engaged “in a multi-billion-dollar corruption case benefiting the Venezuelan regime” in 2012.
“In 2012 I began researching a Venezuelan corruption scandal that also involved U.S.banks, companies, and even U.S. courts,” Halvorssen wrote. “This story should have received extensive exposure on the front pages of America’s national newspapers.
Fusion GPS, however, was hired to spike these stories. Even though it was clearly acting as a public relations counsel on behalf of a foreign principal, Fusion GPS never registered under FARA and was able to engage in nefarious activities without public scrutiny.”
Halvorssen alleged in his testimony that he, like Browder, was the victim of a “smear” campaign by Simpson and Fusion.
He wrote that Fusion hired journalists to write blog posts claiming that he received treatment for a heroin addiction that was paid for by Peter Thiel.

Coulter’s Law: This comes from an item on her Twitter feed. It implies that the longer it takes to prosecute someone, the more likely it is that they belong to some “protected” class. In this case, that would be high-profile minority party politicians. Prosecution of such people is a delicate matter because such actions can appear politically motivated.
