President Stupid Shoulda Called Saul

From Business Insider:
House Democrats want to know why a major Russian money-laundering case was abruptly settled

Democratic members of the House Judiciary Committee sent a letter to Attorney General Jeff Sessions on Wednesday asking why the Department of Justice settled a major money-laundering case involving a real-estate company owned by the son of a powerful Russian government official whose lawyer met with Donald Trump Jr. last year.

Trump Jr., the president's eldest son, on Tuesday tweeted an email chain from June 2016 in which he entertained accepting damaging information from a "Russian government attorney" about Hillary Clinton as part of the Kremlin's support for his father's campaign.

That attorney, Natalia Veselnitskaya, represents the family of Pyotr Katsyv, the former vice governor of the Moscow region, whose son, Denis, owns the real-estate company Prevezon. The DOJ had been investigating whether Prevezon laundered millions of dollars through New York City real estate when the case was unexpectedly settled two days before going to trial in May.

Say goodnight to the bad guy...

And who was the prosecutor of the case that was "unexpectedly settled two days before going to trial"?

Some guy name Preet Bharara...hmmm...THAT name rings a bell!

I expect these words to become part of sworn testimony in the near future.

Gee, it's getting really hard to connect the dots here, being as there are straight lines already inked in.
