I hope there will be a domino effect.
Maybe Hannity was right and we will get some equal justice under the law

Gregory Craig, former Obama White House counsel, indicted for offering false statements related to Ukraine work in latest Mueller fallout

By Rosalind S. Helderman and
Tom Hamburger April 11 at 2:50 PM
Washington attorney Gregory B. Craig, who served as White House counsel for President Barack Obama, was charged Thursday with lying to federal officials who were examining whether he should have registered as a foreign lobbyist for legal work he did for the Ukrainian government in 2012.

The indictment stems from work Craig did with GOP lobbyist Paul Manafort while Craig was a partner at Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom, the law firm he joined after ending his tenure at the White House. Manafort, the former campaign chairman to President Trump, pleaded guilty last year to charges related to his Ukraine lobbying.

Craig’s lawyers had said in a statement Wednesday that they expected he would be indicted, calling the action “a misguided abuse of prosecutorial discretion.”

“Mr. Craig is not guilty of any charge,” attorneys William W. Taylor III and William Murphy said.

I hope they find out that the FBI is guilty of trying to entrap Trump people into colluding with Russia.

Since that is what they were trying to do.

I think the FBI has been corrupt since its' inception.
J. Edgar Hoover had illegal surveillance files on everyone it seemed like.
Plus he did his level best to demonize MLK as a Communist, I remember that myself.

Amazing how that name's still popping up. Maybe they can be cellmates.

They pretty much had to indict him...

If it got out that they let him slide while doing the EXACT same thing that Manafort was indicted for, then the egg on their faces would be huge (Yuuuge?)...

There's got to be a sacrificial lamb to show they're across the board, so this guy got the short straw...

The NEXT question should be to the media turds that yelled about Manafort...

"If you huffed and puffed about Manafort being an unregistered agent for a foreign land when Manafort NEVER worked in the White House under a presidential administration, then shouldn't your huffing and puffing be DOUBLED about Gregory Craig, who was an unregistered agent for a foreign land AND worked in the White House under a presidential administration???????????"
...

Of course, this will never be asked, and the media destroyed that mirror made to look at themselves years ago...
