      Geez Louise Meta, you took up over an hour of my precious time!!!! I watched this because it indicated 10 mins, then got hooked into watching each of the other 10mins segments, plus the 5+ mins finale. Grrrr.
      .
      ..
      However, you were right about stunning parallels. Here’s a segment of Sect 9 which I appreciated. It talks a bit about people’s right to protest and a little later shows the tenacity and knowledge of the Senate committee in questioning one ‘smart-ass’ participant.. You can watch from 1:18 to 5:27… or to the end if you will [ 😉 ].

      • October 30, 2017 at 1:15 pm

        It’s well worth the time to watch it all, for many reasons. It chronicles our history of wrong doing at the highest levels and it instructs us what is possible on the road ahead. It is a very, very compelling documentary.

          I was a high school senior and my government class watched the Watergate hearings. John Halderman was a past student at our school and in the Hall of Fame in our main building with all notable graduates. Someone painted bars on the glass in front of his picture saying he was going to jail……and he did.

          Yes, I agree. This gave me the first background look at that period – all I’d had before were the references made here and there. , and the truth is I would not have watched if you had placed the full video. 😉 I have a very short video-attention span. Another thing it did for me is remind me that, contrary to my dream of immediate resolution , the Idiot President ‘ain’t over til he’s over.’

        He’ll really be sorry HE EVER RAN FOR PRESIDENT because he was SHOCKED HE WON. After he won he thought the GOP will keep him safe from being indicted that is why he was furious that Sessions recused himself. Sessions probably told him NOT to fire Comey but dickhead does things HIS WAY and can’t keep his big mouth shut after he fired Comey. The ONLY time big-mouth told the truth was telling Lester Holt he fired Comey to get from under the Russia investigation.

    According to the indictment:

    “Manafort and Gates generated tens of millions of dollars in income as a result of their Ukraine work,” the indictment says. “In order to hide Ukraine payments from United States authorities, from approximately 2006 through at least 2016, Manafort and Gates laundered the money through scores of United States and foreign corporations, partnerships, and bank accounts.”

    Corporations, partnerships, and bank accounts. Oh dear.

    There Was No Reason To Hire Manafort Except to Collude with Russia
    by David Atkins
    October 29, 2017

    As the political world waits anxiously for the seal to be broken on special counsel Robert Mueller’s indictments, the smart money is on Paul Manafort as the principal target. Manafort is clearly corrupt, having made millions under the table selling his services to pro-Putin forces in Ukraine. He’s the target of an FBI probe focused on at least 13 suspicious wire transfers related to his dealing overseas.

    Beyond pathetically attempting to redirect attention to Hillary Clinton and attack the integrity of the Steele dossier, the conservative line is that while Manafort may have been involved in shady dealings, and while Trump’s family and campaign may have met with Russians promising to deliver dirt on his opponent, Trump himself was not complicit with Russia to interfere in the election.

    This is almost assuredly untrue, because there was no reason to hire Manafort in the first place except to collude with Russia.

    This seems fking brilliant.

    Lots and lots of eyes on Manafort, and then the real killer knife in the ribs happens an hour or two later when the Papadopoulos plea is released.

    The FBI was on him on January 27th. January! It also appears that he was charged in early October and two days later flipped and accepted a plea. So that’s weeks of him assisting Mueller, now. And he was an official advisor to the campaign, and his near invisibility makes him strangely harder to distance from Trump, IMO: he wasn’t hired to bring flash. He was hired to dig dirt.

    Trump may not understand the gravity of this one, and lots of stuff will fly back and forth about Manafort. But keep your eyes on the flip productivity of Papadopoulos.

    Wow.

    May i am mixing members of Team Treason. But I seem to remember that this Papadopoulos was a friend? classmate of Don Jr? Did I dream this or it is someone else?

    Kaboooooooooooooooom!!

    it is one thing to think this….but quite another for this to be real….

    someone asked Ryan about the indictments…he says that this does not impact him…..that the congress has a job to do….
    INCREDIBLE!!

    I’ve had a strange reaction to this news today. When I read the indictment “Conspiracy against the United States” I cried. This is a sad day for the country….I know we’ve all suspected this, but to see it written in black and white hit me in the stomach and tear ducts. This country I love, this country that gave these men SO MUCH, for which they never served….that they would conspire against the country is more than this old lady can take. I cannot rejoice, even though I am VERY glad this is coming out, knowing that these awful people actually conspired against us with Russia is too awful for rejoicing.

    Does anyone else remember Rep Mike Quigley-D, who is on the intelligence committee traveling to Cypress back in April to investigate Russia money laundering and Manafort’s bank accounts at the Cypress bank ? He went there twice.
