How did the Corporate Mass Media Miss What Turley Found about Manafort Meeting with the Russians | August 13, 2017

Bloomberg: Manafort Alerted Authorities About Russian Meeting

|| JonathanTurley.org

“Buried in a new article out of Bloomberg is an understated but potentially significant statement: “In fact, Manafort had alerted authorities to a controversial meeting on June 9, 2016, involving Trump’s son Donald Jr., other campaign representatives and a Russian lawyer promising damaging information on Hillary Clinton, according to people familiar with the matter.”  That would be a huge development in this controversy if true, particularly if the notice occurred before the Russian meeting occurred.

Much of the criticism directed at Donald Trump Jr. and Paul Manafort has been that only chumps would have gone to this meeting or, at a minimum, alerted authorities.  Now Bloomberg is saying that it has sources saying that Manafort did indeed alert authorities.  That would go a long way to defusing the conspiracy theories surrounding the meeting and shatter the narrative put forward by critics.

What is also concerning is that, if true, this fact is one of the only facts not leaked out of Congress.  It seems that closed sessions have been mere precludes to media leaks.  Yet, members have been saying as a mantra that the FBI or some other agency should have been notified.  Ironically, this is the most significant part of the Bloomberg story but is buried without further comment.  Why?  There is no indication of who was informed or when. This would seem one of the most important developments in the controversy but we are left in the dark on the details.  Hopefully we will see in the coming days whether this account is confirmed and, if so, what details can be shared.”

TRUMP Political Strategist: Trump Will Amass 1,237 Delegates Needed to Clinch Nomination

– theGatewaypundit

“Earlier this week The Gateway Pundit predicted that Donald Trump would win the 1,237 delegates needed to clinch the Republican nomination before the convention in July.

In our conservative estimate we even gave Ted “New York Values” Cruz 35 delegates in New York which is impossible at this point.

Trump leads New York by 52% in the latest polling and could sweep all delegates in the Empire State.

We also predicted Ted Cruz will run out of delegates by April 26 unless he continues to steal them from Trump.

Today Donald Trump’s political strategist reported the same news.
Trump will amass the 1,237 delegates needed to win the nomination before the July convention.”
