Let’s make a deal

I think it’s obvious Steve Bannon is offering to cooperate with Bob Mueller:

Bannon has criticised Trump’s decision to fire Comey. In Wolff’s book, obtained by the Guardian ahead of publication from a bookseller in New England, he suggests White House hopes for a quick end to the Mueller investigation are gravely misplaced.

“You realise where this is going,” he is quoted as saying. “This is all about money laundering. Mueller chose [senior prosecutor Andrew] Weissmann first and he is a money-laundering guy. Their path to fucking Trump goes right through Paul Manafort, Don Jr and Jared Kushner … It’s as plain as a hair on your face.”

Last month it was reported that federal prosecutors had subpoenaed records from Deutsche Bank, the German financial institution that has lent hundreds of millions of dollars to the Kushner property empire. Bannon continues: “It goes through Deutsche Bank and all the Kushner shit. The Kushner shit is greasy. They’re going to go right through that. They’re going to roll those two guys up and say play me or trade me.”

Scorning apparent White House insouciance, Bannon reaches for a hurricane metaphor: “They’re sitting on a beach trying to stop a Category Five.”

He insists that he knows no Russians, will not be a witness, will not hire a lawyer and will not appear on national television answering questions.

There’s only way I know of (short of him killing himself) that he avoids those things. Look for a deal.

    Bannon will be Mueller’s very last witness and he knows it.

    So this nihilist has set out to destroy everybody from Trump on down first.

    Bannon believes that his legal jeopardy will end on the same day that Trump is indicted.

    So Bannon decided that he would make everything he knows, and stuff he heard, public well before Mueller gets the facts out of him in a tiny,little, windowless room filled with federal prosecutors. Nothing he says now is a legally prosecutable lie.

    Bannon also knows that Mueller is following the money and will eventually charge Trump, Kushner, Don Jr. and Ivanka with money laundering for the Russians.

    I find it hilarious that the moron they groomed to be their puppet has turned on them. But on the other hand, Fergus should have known better than to surround himself with treacherous bastards when he’s as guilty as he is.
    I really enjoyed Malcolm Nance on Stephanie Miller’s show the other day, describing Fergus as “he thinks he’s still dealing with an assistant DA from Manhattan, when he’s really dealing with the wood chipper of justice, which is Bob Mueller and his investigation.”
