The Trump people insist that this will be over by December. Frankly, I don't see how Mueller can prepare so many indictments by then. That's a lot of paperwork.

Maybe they are talking about Trump's 25th Amendment "victory retirement"?

I really think he should spend more time with his family for the short time he has left. At this rate, he won't know who they are pretty soon.

Trump boasts that he's very intelligent, but the reality is that Trump, is a simpleton. This whole Russia scandal is about Trump kissing Putin's butt so that Putin will approve a Trump Tower in Moscow - something that Trump has wanted since the early '90s.

Opportunists like Jared Kushner used his father-in-law to get in good with the Russians so that Jared could get Russian-backed money for his failing real estate business. The buiding that Jared owns at 666 Fifth Avenue was purchased at the height of the housing bubble, and a HUGE interest balloon payment is coming due in a few months. THAT is why Jared wanted "back-channels" to Russian oligarchs - so he could get funding for his real estate business.

Having said all of the above, Donald J Trump is involved in shady Russian oligarch money laundering which is a separate issue from his 2016 Election campaign issues - which was to get in good with Puty so that Trump Tower - Moscow could be built.

Robert Mueller is simply rolling all of these shenanigans into one giant criminal investigation.

There used to be a restaurant called "Top of the Sixes" on the top floor of that building. My folks used to take us all there whenever we came to NYC with them.
Food was so-so but the whole thrill of the place was the view, I guess.
They did have decent steaks but not much else.
By the time Jared purchased it, the Grand Havana Room, a cigar bar, had replaced TOT6's.

The UK Independent wrote in March 2017, that in April 2016 during the height of the GOP Presidential primary, Donald Trump met with Russia's US Ambassador, but that the Ambassador has since been recalled back to Moscow to get the Ambassador away from questioning him about the meeting with Donald J. Trump.
