Just How Worried Do I Need to Be About Butina Being Released?

Someone want to fill me in on how the WH can mess with the indictment? I don't see how they can, but then again, I don't understand all the legal aspects.

2. True, but theoretically he could do a pre-emptive pardon

3. I expect Trump will work to get her released.

She has too much info on the NRA and Republicans would prefer her to be out of sight and out of mind.

4. I was thinking about Lavrov pushing Pompeo who would meet with the Rump and plan something

They could put a lot of pressure on the DOJ. At this point, I have no idea what will happen if they ramp up their attacks.

5. Did I miss something? She was released??

Why??

She was arrested pretty much as she was packing and about leave the country I thought. Hence the arrest and continued detention

6. No, no! Lavrov told Pompeo he should release her

They discussed it at length. My question was really about what Pompeo could do about her incarceration, whether or not the SOS has any sway.
