How Manafort’s Motion to Dismiss Could Help General Flynn | Law & Crime
Of note, the court further emphasized that a special counsel could not rely on his own interpretation of his appointment to take actions in excess of his inferior officer status. Why? Because “any delegation of authority is subject to the constitutional limits set forth in the Appointments Clause.” As the court explained, “the special counsel cannot act outside the bounds of either his limited jurisdiction or without regard for Department of Justice policies and regulations. As such, the Special Counsel does not wield unlimited authority.”

The court emphasized this prevented “wholesale abdication of the Attorney General’s duty to direct and supervise litigation.” Therefore, the court required any interpretation of the Special Counsel’s jurisdiction be limited by subject matter and by tenure of time: once the investigation into the subject matter was concluded, “his tenure as Special Counsel will end.”

Robert Mueller’s Beltway Cover-Up – Tablet Magazine
As an intelligence bureaucrat who was never held accountable for the enormous public failure that the Hatfill case represented, Robert Mueller was the natural choice to be the public face of a campaign designed to protect the interests of an unaccountable ruling class. The range of his inquiry is dictated not by the ostensible purpose of his appointment, but by the nature and scope of the abuses and crimes he’s covering up. Should the wheels of the Mueller probe ever stop grinding, his entire constituency immediately becomes vulnerable. The public will understand what happened, who’s responsible, and who covered it up.

Fact-checking Trump’s error-filled tweetstorm about the Mueller probe - The Washington Post
In a series of tweets March 17 and 18, President Trump made a number of inaccurate or misleading statements about the investigations of Russian interference in the 2016 presidential campaign. As a reader service, here’s a quick guide to his claims.
As the House Intelligence Committee has concluded, there was no collusion between Russia and the Trump Campaign. As many are now finding out, however, there was tremendous leaking, lying and corruption at the highest levels of the FBI, Justice & State. #DrainTheSwamp

Subpoena of Trump Organization Records Brings Mueller Closer to Sater, Cohen - WhoWhatWhy
News that Special Counsel Robert Mueller has subpoenaed Trump Organization records puts the president in a really tough spot with no good choices.
The move shows that Mueller clearly couldn’t care less about the “red line” President Donald Trump drew in July last year during an interview with the New York Times. The president was asked whether investigating his personal and family finances unrelated to Russia would be crossing a red line.
“I would say yes,” Trump said back then. But that is precisely what Mueller seems to be doing now. Such a move could lead Trump to try getting rid of Mueller, something many of the president’s own allies believe would be a catastrophic decision.
If Mueller continues down this path, however, he will get a much clearer picture of Trump’s financial ties to Putin’s regime and to dubious figures in the US and within Russia.

Dem Rep: Trump-Russia Probe Is "Running Joke" Between Democrats | Zero Hedge
The Trump-Russia probe is a "running joke" between Rep. Jim Himes (D-CT) and fellow Rep. Cheri Bustos (D-IL).

Himes made the comment on a Tuesday morning appearance with MSNBC's Morning Joe while making a point about how their constituents don't care about Russia. 

When asked by the Washington Post's Robert Costa why Democrats aren't campaigning on the Russia probe, Himes had this to say: 

HIMES: “…Here’s the thing. My good friend [Dem Rep.] Cheri Bustos who represents a very tough district in Illinois, we have sort of a running joke going in the mornings, which is, she’s got a district very different from mine and I represent Fairfield County, Connecticut. She’s in the heartland in a distinct that we need to figure out how to win again. Every Monday morning when I see Cheri and we come up there’s a little bit of laughter and she says, ‘you know what? My constituents are still not asking me about Russia.

Rep. Jim Himes (D-CT) admits Trump-Russia probe is running joke with fellow Democrat lawmaker, says voters never ask about it.

— Josh Caplan (@joshdcaplan) March 6, 2018
Himes says that American are worried about "kitchen table issues," and that Democrats will "pay a cost at the polls" if they can't understand this.

“I Don’t Think There’s Anything . . . That Gates Doesn’t Know”: Why Manafort’s Lackey Now Holds All the Cards | Vanity Fair
Rick Gates was deputy campaign manager for just three months—but for Mueller’s investigation, they were crucial.
Rick Gates had a prime corner office in Trump Tower: on the 14th floor, the nerve center of the Republican candidate’s presidential campaign, overlooking Fifth Avenue. But if you listen to his former colleagues at the top of Trump’s staff, the fact that Gates occupied that rarefied real estate was something close to a fluke, and it was the only thing of remote significance about Gates’s presence in 2016. “He had some organizational skills,” shrugs one top Trump campaign strategist. “And he could translate what Paul Manafort wanted done. But you’ve got to remember they were only in charge for thirteen weeks and one day. A really short time. And once Paul left, Rick’s knowledge was zero. He was not on the plane after August. He had nothing to do with the transition. The only thing Rick maybe could have known was about vendor relationships.”

The Nunes Memo: Six Degrees of Separation from Reality - WhoWhatWhy
Late last Friday, President Donald Trump blocked the release of a classified Democratic memo supposedly rebutting the claims of Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) that the FBI deceived a secret court while investigating Russian interference in the 2016 election.
The White House claimed that Trump’s decision was based on the national security concerns of his Department of Justice.
But a week earlier, Trump ignored similar qualms from DOJ when he allowed the release of the Nunes memo.

The Russia Investigation Is Moving Really Freaking Fast | FiveThirtyEight
The investigation by special counsel Robert Mueller into Russian interference in the 2016 election took a significant step forward Friday, with the indictment of 13 Russian nationals and and three Russian organizations along with the announcement of a guilty plea from a California man for identity fraud.
The indictment and guilty plea are important because they are the first charges related to Russian attempts to sabotage the election. (The other indictment and pleas in the Mueller investigation have been in relation to other criminal activities.) The election interference is an activity long denounced by the U.S. intelligence community but routinely called into question by President Trump.
The indictment is also the latest sign that Mueller’s investigation is still moving quickly and ambitiously in pressing charges against those involved.

Mueller Had Another Busy Week | FiveThirtyEight
His investigation continues to move quickly compared to past special investigations.
Rick Gates, an aide to former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort, pleaded guilty Friday to conspiracy and making a false statement, according to a copy of the plea document obtained by CNN. This comes a day after special counsel Robert Mueller unsealed dozens of new charges against him. The move is seen as a sign Gates is cooperating with Mueller’s investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election and another indication the prosecutor is acting aggressively, as we’ve noted in our ongoing effort to track the pace and scope of his probe. In addition, a new figure in the case, European lawyer Alex van der Zwaan, pleaded guilty earlier this week to lying to prosecutors about a conversation he had with Gates. Gates had previously been indicted, so he was already included in the above chart, but van der Zwaan has been added.

Musings - Time to bring back the software user conference - by @holgermu
"Subject Expertise beats Celebrity. Yes, user conferences are also about inspiration. But a shows star, soap operate protagonist or a talk show host - is not something an enterprise software user can relate to for their work and why they spend 3-4 days and a few thousand budget dollars / euros to come to a conference. Vendors show offer subject matters, if push comes to shove from the user base. There is instant validation, trust and respect from a user to another user presenting. There is direct bonding of being in the same boat and sharing experiences from that. No celebrity can do that. Glamour effects don't last."

"5G everywhere – I thought I saw a 5G sticker on my Iberic Ham sandwich… 5G was everywhere, slapped on everything… ironically the debut demos were all about… phone calls. And that’s what 5G is not about, but about bringing networks to 21st century standard in throughput (high def video), latency (<1 ms) and density (over 100+ devices on a square meter). These are all key specs to enable a more human (visual), a more thing driven (density) and a more AI driven (latency) next generation application for enterprises, all very hard to do on current 4G / 4G LTE standards."

Mueller just got his fourth conviction in his Trump-Russia investigation
Alex Van der Zwaan, a 33-year-old Dutch lawyer based out of London — who turns out to be the son-in-law of one of Putin’s top oligarchs — pleaded guilty this afternoon to lying about his contacts with indicted former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort’s deputy, Rick Gates, who now has a plea deal with Special Prosecutor Robert Mueller and is cooperating with the Russia investigation.
In their charges, Mueller’s team alleges that Van der Zwaan made false statements to the FBI and Mueller’s team.

Mueller and Trump: Born to wealth, raised to lead. Then, sharply different choices. - The Washington Post
They are the sons of wealth, brought up in families accustomed to power. They were raised to show and demand respect, and they were raised to lead.
They rose to positions of enormous authority, the president of the United States and the special counsel chosen to investigate him. They dress more formally than most of those around them; both sport meticulously coifed hair. They have won unusual loyalty from those who believe in them. They attended elite all-male private schools, were accomplished high school athletes and went on to Ivy League colleges. As young men, each was deeply affected by the death of a man he admired greatly.
