A Strange Christmas Present

No.331735 ViewReplyOriginalReport
I’m asukaspammer, a /qa/ anon, and in the spirit of Christmas figured I’d let you know that I spammed the news.news links. Just wanted to see who was going to be blamed and why, it’s a lot more honest that way.
Before anyone starts talking about a grand anime spam conspiracy, I have only every posted that news.news spam on this board.
Anyways figured I’d let the board know seeing as there are a few threads on /qa/ about it. Still not sure if it’s just a couple of guys trying to start more drama or actual posters in those threads but that’s neither here nor there. Merry Christmas! Oh and I guess here are the “article” links

Fascism defeated again: White House drops bid to revoke Acosta's press pass

No.315933 ViewReplyLast 50OriginalReport
The White House is dropping its effort to strip CNN reporter Jim Acosta of his press credentials, a defeat for President Trump in his campaign against the news media.

The reversal comes after the White House notified Acosta last Friday it may renew its attempts to revoke his press pass after a judge's order restoring it expired. The White House set a Sunday deadline for Acosta to object and said it would make a final decision by 3 p.m. on Monday.

"Having received a formal reply from your counsel to our letter of November 16, we have made a final determination in this process: your hard pass is restored," the White House said in a new letter to Acosta.

The White House Correspondents' Association (WHCA) said the administration "did the right thing" in restoring Acosta's pass, but criticized its new press-conference rules.

"For as long as there have been White House press conferences, White House reporters have asked follow-up questions. We fully expect this tradition will continue," said WHCA President Olivier Knox, adding the group had "no role in crafting" the rules.

"We will continue to make the case that a free and independent news media plays a vital role in the health of our republic."

The development marked the end of a nearly two-week long saga that began when the White House suspended Acosta's credentials on Nov. 7 following a contentious exchange with Trump at a post-election news conference.

Several media organizations have scoffed at the White House's arguments, saying that past presidents have all dealt with aggressive coverage without pulling reporters' credentials.

The decision to permanently restore Acosta's pass was surprising, given the president's reluctance to back away from a fight. By most indications, the administration was prepared to move forward with its efforts just hours before a final decision was announced.

Police search offices of Deutsche Bank board members

>FRANKFURT (Reuters) - Police have searched the offices of all the members of Deutsche Bank’s (DBKGn.DE) board as part of an investigation into money laundering allegations linked to the Panama Papers, a source told Reuters on Friday.

>Shares in Germany’s largest bank ended 2.9 percent lower, after hitting a record low earlier in the day, as a raid that began on Thursday at the bank’s towering Frankfurt headquarters extended into a second day.

>“We will of course continue to actively support the investigation and work constructively with the authorities,” Karl von Rohr, Deutsche’s co-deputy chief executive officer, said in a statement on Friday evening.

>Deutsche Bank shares have lost around half of their value this year, after the bank endured three years of losses and a series of financial and regulatory scandals. The company is now worth only around 17 billion euros ($19.3 billion).

>The raid comes as Deutsche Bank tries to repair its tattered reputation.

>Christian Sewing, appointed chief executive in April to help the bank rebuild, has trimmed the group’s U.S. operations and reshuffled its management board, but revenue has continued to slip.

>Investigators are looking into the activities of two unnamed Deutsche Bank employees alleged to have helped clients set up offshore firms to launder money, the prosecutor’s office has said. The inquiries focus on events from 2013 to this year.

>Gerhard Schick, a member of parliament for the opposition Green party, said it was “particularly irritating” that the bank’s current board members oversaw operations during the time in question. “This is not about legacy issues,” he said in a statement to Reuters.

I would wager that the lack of current criminal charges against Trump could only point to one things..
BLUMPF IS GETTING IMBEECHED!!! ITS OVER!! HES GOING TO JAIL!!!
Just kidding. This probably turned up no actionable evidence to arrest trump with, otherwise it would be done already
And no, they arent waiting to arrest him for the midterms, they are waiting to release publicly the findings.

Michael Cohen just made a plea deal with Robert Mueller

No.320263 ViewReplyLast 50OriginalReport
Just in case you thought Mueller lost his big fish with Manafort still working for the the Russians and breaking the plead bargain.

https://www.vox.com/2018/11/29/18117736/michael-cohen-robert-mueller-trump-tower-moscow

Former Trump lawyer Michael Cohen has cut a deal with special counsel Robert Mueller’s team, ABC’s George Stephanopoulos reports. The deal was announced in a New York federal court Thursday.

As part of the deal, Cohen will admit making false statements to Congress committees investigating the Russia scandal. The Associated Press reports that the false statements relate to a Trump real estate project in Russia — specifically, efforts to build a “Trump Tower Moscow.”

Stephanopoulos also claims, per his sources, that Cohen will provide “dozens of hours of testimony potentially damaging to” President Trump.

Cohen had already pleaded guilty to tax fraud, bank fraud, and campaign finance charges as part of an investigation run by the US Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York. But he had not previously been charged as part of the Russia probe or officially agreed to cooperate with that investigation.

Cohen’s team has, however, been telling reporters for months that Cohen had bombshell information about the Trump-Russia scandal. But the claims about what Cohen purportedly knew sometimes changed, which has led to skepticism about whether he knew anything worthwhile.

Now, CNN reports that in the plea deal, Cohen will admit falsely telling Congress that talks about a potential deal to build a Trump Tower in Moscow had concluded in early 2016, when in fact he continued to discuss it later.

And per the Guardian’s Jon Swaine, Cohen told the court that he lied to Congress about his contact with “Individual-1” — aka, Donald Trump — about the project.
