How Mueller’s First Year Compares To Watergate, Iran-Contra And Whitewater | FiveThirtyEight
And what those past investigations tell us about where the Russia investigation might go next.
It’s a big day for Robert Mueller and his team: One year ago today, Mueller was appointed to lead the special counsel investigation into possible ties between the 2016 Trump campaign and Russian officials. It’s a miracle, in some ways, that Mueller has lasted this long. President Trump’s relationship with the investigation has grown increasingly adversarial, and at many moments over the course of the past 12 months, it seemed like Mueller’s job was in jeopardy.
So this hasn’t been an easy year for Mueller, but it’s certainly been productive. Since the first indictments came down in the investigation last fall, the special counsel has racked up five guilty pleas and 14 indictments of individuals.1 He also reportedly gave a referral to the U.S. attorney’s office for the Southern District of New York that led to a raid on the office, home and hotel room of presidential lawyer and fixer Michael Cohen, which has turned into its own separate investigation.
We’ve taken a look at how Mueller’s first year measures up against the initial 12 months of other special counsel and independent counsel investigations. In terms of the number of charges he’s been able to file, Mueller is moving quickly. At one year after the formal appointment of a special or independent counsel, only the Watergate special prosecution force had obtained more indictments and guilty pleas.

Robert Mueller’s Beltway Cover-Up – Tablet Magazine
Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein appointed him nearly a year ago to lead an investigation without parameters. That’s because Mueller’s job is to obscure the abuses of the US surveillance apparatus that occurred under the Obama administration.

Progress Report - SAP SuccesFactors - More SAP (technology)
"SuccessFactors is making progress, but the pace seems to be glacial. Realistically using more of SAP technology, a good decision overall, means even more ‘plumbing’ work by R&D resources vs. ‘sun deck’ work (building SaaS capabilities). But it is an investment SAP should make, with the expectation of better productivity and more functionality being shipped in a few years – latest."

Event Report - NetSuite SuiteWorld 2018 - NetSuite goes Global and Oracle
"On the concern side, NetSuite may not be moving fast enough yet. It needs to move to 30, then 50 supported countries fast, to e.g. counter and lead vis a vis other large ERP vendors SMB products (starts with an S…). And while I always like when vendors go back and fix something (the Commerce offering), it does not make sense for NetSuite to play in the space, while e.g. not having a full HCM Suite, no clear CRM strategy , some holes in SCM and so on. So, NetSuite not only needs to move fast, but also smart, which the vendor is doing on most aspects, but needs to do more. For instance, NetSuite needs to announce the next 10 or better 20 target countries for its Globalization / Localization plans, so customers can plan their roll outs accordingly."

Trump Lawyer Michael Cohen’s Unexplored Russia Connections - WhoWhatWhy
With the FBI raid on Trump lawyer Michael Cohen’s office, everyone is scrambling for explanations. But as WhoWhatWhy reported last year, Michael Cohen’s background has long demanded close scrutiny. He came out of nowhere, backed by Russia-connected figures, and bought his way into Donald Trump’s heart.
Here’s the full story as it appeared on September 18, 2017.
Jared Kushner, Donald Trump Jr., Paul Manafort, Michael Flynn … all members of President Donald Trump’s inner circle — past and present — have been scrutinized by the media, and their various Russia ties are being investigated by the press and Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s team. One figure, however, managed to fly largely under the radar until very recently: Michael Cohen, Trump’s former right-hand man and in-house attorney.

Hannity & Cohen: The Fox News Host and the Trump Lawyer - The Atlantic
The revelation that the Fox News host sought legal advice from the embattled Trump attorney raised questions about the network’s journalism—and about the president’s tangled relationships.
Genuinely stunning moments are hard to come by these days, but one arrived on Monday in a courtroom in New York City.
Michael Cohen, President Trump’s fixer, was in court, trying to shield documents seized in a raid Monday on his office, home, and hotel room from prosecutors. Cohen had invoked attorney-client privilege to ask the court to hold documents back, but there have been questions about the extent to which Cohen was actually working as a lawyer. Cohen’s attorneys said he had three clients for whom his work was legal in nature. Two were previously known: Trump, and Elliott Broidy, a major GOP fundraiser for whom Cohen arranged a $1.6 million payout to a Playboy Playmate whom he had impregnated.

Warrants and Privilege: Legal Questions About the Raids on Trump’s Lawyer - The New York Times
WASHINGTON — President Trump reacted furiously to the F.B.I. raid on Monday of the office and the hotel room of Michael D. Cohen, his longtime personal lawyer — suggesting that the Justice Department improperly intruded into confidential communications and declaring on Twitter on Tuesday that “attorney–client privilege is dead!”
The search related to bank fraud allegations, according to a person briefed on the investigation, although the details remain unclear. Mr. Cohen’s lawyer said that the raid resulted from a referral from Robert S. Mueller III, the special counsel leading the Trump-Russia investigation, but it was carried out by the office of Geoffrey S. Berman, the interim United States attorney for the Southern District of New York — suggesting its subject matter fell outside Mr. Mueller’s area of focus.
Here is what you need to know about the legal issues.
