Take it FWIW, but a D.C. relative just texted me another mueller charge is coming monday
Take it with a grain of salt, but my cousin, a aide for a GOP congressman, is claiming a man named Vin Weber is going to have his indctiment unsealed on Monday

A quick google search shows me this is some kind of GOP lobbyist with connections to Manafort and podesta

He seems to be a never trumpet as well

Wonder what this is all about

I hear it’s Evan McMullens cousin saying she got sexually harassed by Trump and Putin in Cancun during Spring break back in 1999

Vin Weber Wikipedia

quote:

Weber is considered[by whom?] one of the most prominent strategists in the Republican Party, serving as a top advisor on Dole for President in 1996, the Bush reelection campaign in 2004, and Romney for President in 2008.[9]Weber also serves as chairman of the National Endowment for Democracy, a private, nonprofit organization designed to strengthen democratic institutions around the world through nongovernmental efforts. He is a senior fellow at the Humphrey Institute at the University of Minnesota, where he is co-director of the Policy Forum.


quote:

Weber was against a Donald Trump presidency, telling CNBC "I can't imagine I'd remain a Republican if he becomes president."

Wouldn't surprise me. Take attention off the memo. Charge someone with tax evasion from 1999

He is Establishment/ connected/ Deep State bona fides as it gets. That scene in the Rapist/ Henieman douchbag show where they all scoff at Trump over a $3000 steak dinner says it all.

This isn't a surprise. Mercury Group and Podesta Group. It came out shortly after the first indictments. I think he was under contract with Podesta.

He's a lobbyist tied to Manafort/Gates

Makes sense with the Gates news today

How Vin Weber could figure into Mueller's Trump-Russia Investigation

quote:

Weber did not register as a foreign lobbyist at the time, regardless of the extent of his knowledge of the Centre's true funding. However, sometimes federal authorities permit lobbyists to retroactively update their lobbying disclosures with more information. BuzzFeed reported that Mercury did this in 2017, updating its Ukraine file to indicate that meetings had taken place between Weber, Manafort, and Washington officials related to the lobbying campaign — contradicting previous claims made by Weber that he had not coordinated any efforts with Manafort or Gates.

The federal government rarely prosecutes lobbyists who fail to properly file their work for foreign governments. However, the failure of Weber and other lobbyists to do so in this case, legal experts say, mean they could be of use in Mueller’s investigation of Manafort — potentially as targets for prosecution, or as witnesses.

Of course this will happen.

This IC has proven to be a media circus. For all the honest Mueller, former Marine, Republican, respected by all, his tenure has been marked by ILLEGAL leaks and highly suspect timing of events. Short of Iran Contra, this has become a poster child for ending the IC statute.

The way you told that really rings as the truth. It makes sense for them to buy cheap headlines. This is why I think maybe Trump should not release it on Friday unless it's so fricking huge that it will be talked about at Super Bowl parties all over the country.

If it's not THAT big than it will be dead on Sunday and overshadowed by this fake charge on Monday AM.

Vin Weber was as solid of a Reaganite as there was. But the lure of that Establishment lifestyle and all that strange new respect was too much for him to bear .
