"Manafort and Gates" LITIGATION and POKER -- Both strategic pursuits that count on playing your cards right, and #Mueller is a master player.
THREAD
"Before a civil or criminal trial begins in earnest, there is a period of time in which both parties exchange information about
about the facts of the case. This is called discovery." (criminal.findlaw.com) Before Discovery begins in a criminal case if a guilty defendant finds out the prosecution has a strong case, that defendant will be more likely to plead guilty to lesser charges to get a
lesser punishment. Prosecutors typically do not charge a defendant with their worst crimes initially because if they did that, the Defendant would not be motivated to “flip” – to tell what they know about bigger crime and other people involved in them. In litigation, as in poker
you have to strategically play each card carefully. And Mueller is a Master Player. Trump has made a lot of noise about the charges levied against Flynn, Manafort and Gates, asserting the lesser charges to which they pleaded guilty prove (a) there were are no bigger crimes
committed by them and (b) there are no crimes committed by him. Apparently, Trump never played Texas Hold’em.

In Texas Hold’em, you are dealt two cards “in the hole” (in your hand or face down) and community cards shown face up on the table. The goal is to make your best
5-card hand. Your 2 hole cards and 3 community cards are dealt on the “flop” (all-at-once in the beginning), and players bet. Then 2 additional community cards are dealt, with rounds of betting in between. In poker, when you want to catch a "whale" (a wealthy player who is not a
strong player) , you often slow play them—luring them into the pot with each round of betting. Trump is a whale. Each turn of the community cards in this game (flipping Flynn, Manafort and Gates), have improved Mueller’s hand.
Mueller plays this game perfectly. To continue this analogy to its inevitable end: Trump is now “all in” with three of a kind, but Mueller has ACES in the hole.

The dealer WILL say, "Show 'em," soon but, in the meantime, enjoy the game - we have already won!
