Rick Gates to Plead Guilty and Testify Against Manafort and Trump Campaign

Tge Washington Post is reporting that Rick Gates will plead guilty to one count of conspiracy and one count of making a false statement to investigators on Friday.

On Friday, Robert Mueller’s team released a new document of “Superseding Criminal Information” listing two superseding charges.

Count one indicates that Gates “together with others, knowingly and intentionally conspired to defraud the United States” in failing to disclose foreign bank accounts and foreign lobbying, combining charges that had already been included in an October indictment.

Count two indicates that Gates lied to the special counsel’s office and the FBI on Feb. 1 about a 2013 meeting between Manafort, an unnamed lobbyist, and an unnamed member of Congress, saying Manafort told him at the time that Ukraine had not been discussed. This indicates that Gates had been speaking with investigators even after his October indictment—which would indicate a cooperation deal was being worked on—and indeed he has lied to them during those discussions.

This comes after Rick Gates wrote a letter to friends and family telling them that he would plead guilty on Friday in special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation.˜

Motel 6 Denies Couple Room Saying Puerto Rican Driver’s License isn’t U.S. ID

A Puerto Rican couple visiting Sacramento County for their niece’s wedding said they were unable to check into a Rancho Cordova Motel 6 because the racist front desk clerk didn’t believe they had valid U.S. identification.

When Raul Villanueva presented his Puerto Rico driver’s license late Wednesday night, the clerk told him, “Oh, you need a license from the United States,” he said.

“I said, ‘This is a license from the United States, that’s Puerto Rico. Puerto Rico is the United States.’ She said, ‘No, it isn’t,’” Villanueva recalled.

Villanueva needed his ID in order to verify his reservation. The woman working at the front desk then asked for his and his wife’s passports, which he reluctantly retrieved.

“She wouldn’t take the passports after all,” Villanueva said. “When I brought them she said, ‘No, I won’t take it. I won’t take that.’ So I said, ‘OK, then give me my money back.’”

The couple called Motel 6’s corporate office Thursday and talked to a representative. The person apologized for the mistake and admitted Puerto Rican identification is on their list of accepted IDs.

The couple ended up staying the night with a relative. They still haven’t received their money back from Motel 6.

The National Border Patrol Council seemingly has turned against Trump, calling Trump’s efforrts to send National Guard troops to the American-Mexican border, nothing but a huge “colossal waste of resources.”

“We have seen no benefit,” said Brandon Judd, president of the union that represents 15,000 agents, the National Border Patrol Council. “We generally support the administration, but we’re not going to be cheerleading when things are not going well,” Judd said.

Additionally, Agent Chris Cabrera, a spokesman for the union in the Rio Grande Valley, said troops are stationed far from the border, duplicating rather than lessening agents’ workload – and often getting in the way and sometimes getting lost.

He points out that most of the troops are just standing around, having to find “busy work.”

Texas Rep. Mary E. Gonzalez, who represents a district outside El Paso, agrees. “The National Guard deployment is a waste of finite resources, and is duplicative of existing border security efforts.”

According the Nevada Independent Editor Jon Ralston, the Las Vegas Review Journal has ordered its reporters not to cover the Democratic debate between  Gubernatorial Democratic Candidates. The Review Journal is owned by GOP Mega-donor Sheldon Adelson.

What began as an abstract fear of a powerful new owner’s political hand wanting to steer the paper’s news coverage, after Sheldon Adelson was revealed as the “secret” buyer of the Review-Journal in 2015, has become a reality: Addelson is now controlling the political content specifically to harm Democrats.
