MSNBC legal expert: Cohen flipping puts Trump ‘one witness away’ from catastrophe – TheHill

When you live in a den of Thieves who do you accuse when something is stolen?

I have never understood why anyone would like Rudy Giuliani. He was an unlikeable mayor who did a terrible job at running the city. And his time since 9/11 has been anything but spectacular. Now, this drooling excuse for an attorney he’s trying to make what is obviously a crime into a nothingburger, to quote one of the future co-conspirators.

I’ve said it before, Michael Cohen has no pedigree but even a liar like Michael corn can be corroborated by a second Witness. All of those people at the Trump Tower pre-meeting are subject to be interrogated and perhaps even be charged and one of them is going to flip. And that one would be the proverbial straw that broke the camel’s back, in this case the camel’s back is the Trump Administration. And I don’t want to hear anything about a president Pence, he was in charge of the transition and therefore neck deep in the crud of this Administration.

If Cohen is telling us the truth, Trump may end up like Flynn – TheHill

One time, and this one time only, I will agree with Rudy Giuliani about something. Michael Cohen is a liar. he is a liar that is trying his hardest to keep himself out of jail. What the good America’s mayor forgot to say was that a few weeks ago Giuliani himself said that Michael corn was a good man. A good man is not a liar or do I have my definitions mixed up?

I truly hope that the headline of this story is what happens in the end. But one thing that is never spoken about is the fact that Mike Pence, yes mr. Clean cut vice president, was in charge of the transition. And as such he must have known about Flynn, the Russians, and all of the other Shenanigans going on in those horrendous months between the election and the inauguration of the 45th president. So who will take over from Trump if Mike Pence is also implicated? And that’s why we need to have Democratic house in November. Because next in line is the speaker of the house and not the Secretary of State as so many believe. And can you imagine a president Jim Jordan? Alright enough nightmares for today.

White House Transcript Omits Key Putin–Trump Moment – The Atlantic

If you’re like me you watch Rachel Maddow religiously. Tonight was quite an eye-opener. An American Administration lying to its people in such a bold way is unprecedented. I watched the press conference in Helsinki live as they did millions of others. I heard the question very clearly being asked to President Putin as to whether or not he favored Donald J Trump in the 2016 election. He clearly said yes I did yes I did and that he had asked his government to help in every way to get Trump elected because it would help US Russia relations.

when the White House released the transcript of this press conference viewed Again by millions the question about whether Putin favor Trump has been admitted. When the White House released video of that same interaction the same question had been edited out of Putin’s answer.

We here the current occupant of the White House screaming out fake news all the time. Well fear is fake history. I along with millions of others heard and saw with my own eyes what was said and now it’s disappeared. it’s as if this white house does not understand the concept of recording. Obviously recordings are going to be the downfall of this president. But what is most outrageous to me is that the Russian government transcript of the same press conference has the same exact admissions as the one from the White House. This is not just scandalous, this is are waving a white flag to a second-rate country. And when I say second-rate country I mean it. Russia fell from the 29th largest economy to the 30th largest economy this year. Thanks to the crippling sanctions put on by the Obama Administration.

in addition, Trump released a retweet from Russian State television of a fake news article. This fake news article said that Hillary Clinton was Pro Russia when in fact we know the hatred that Putin had for Hillary because of her stance in implementing the crippling sanctions which have made Russia perhaps a third tier country.

Trump is running our country the way he ran his businesses with lies deceit and eventual bankruptcy.

I guess the next installment is when this fall our President meet with his komisar.

“Did They Think I Was Just Going to Roll Over and Die?”: The Cohen vs. Trump Battle Ratchets Up – Vanity Fair

It’s funny how politics can make you switch allegiances. Take me for example, when James Comey came out and did that thing in October reigniting the so-called email scandal I was furious at him. Now he’s telling people to vote democratic, am I supposed to like them now?

Michael Cohen, the thug that has had the moniker of Donald Trump’s fixer for the last 15 years he’s not one of my favorite people on the planet. Now he’s trying to save his skin. He’s painting himself as a family man one who cares about his children and wants to watch them grow up and not do so from a prison cell. Hey, I’m a human being I understand completely that sentiment. The problem is when you sell your soul to the devil, the Devil comes and get your soul when it’s time. Michael Cohen can claim to be this new person hell-bent on making sure Donald Trump gets his but in the grand scheme of things Michael corn deserves everything he is going to get.

‘Trump’s son should be concerned’: FBI obtained wiretaps of Putin ally who met with Trump Jr. – Yahoo News

 

Don Jr may very well be the downfall of Don senior. Don Jr never thinks before talking. He has been an embarrassment to his family. And now he is going to cause the downfall of the Trump Administration.

you add in the fact that he is cost the American taxpayers over half a million dollars in Secret Service protection solely for his personal use. He went on a trip to the Middle East to open a new Trump property and that cost the Secret Service $258, 000 then he went on a trip to Paris to to show off to his ex wife that he still was a man and that cost the US taxpayer $250, 000. It’s amazing to me how the supposedly fiscally responsible Republicans are wasting money like it’s going out of style. The people benefiting are the very rich on the backs of the very poor.

Russian firm indicted in special counsel probe cites Kavanaugh decision to argue that charge should be dismissed – WashPost

Of course the the Supreme Court choice of trump once nothing more than to have the special counsel disappear. So it makes all the sense in the world that the accused Russians involved our siding Supreme Court nominee Kavanagh in their bid to get out of the crimes they committed. Supreme Court nominee Kavanaugh would be a blight on our judicial system and would remove rights from minorities, immigrants, lgbtq, pro-choice and the list goes on and on.

President accepts resignation of EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt

Well the swamp got a little less Swampy. The swamp monster of swamp monsters is gone. There are so many more swamp monsters out there that work for this Administration but Scott Pruitt deserved this a long time ago and it’s about time that a man who has made it his job to destroy the Earth lost his means of doing so. Who knows what 45 is going to pick as the next EPA administrator, I’m sure it will be a climate change denier who is part of the petroleum industry but hopefully he will need any soundproof booth and won’t have to fly only first class so people don’t yell at him.

Mueller Russia investigation: Trump inauguration money is a major focus – Vox

In the Bible the original sin is when Eve ate the apple. For this Administration the original sin was Sean Spicer lying about the size of the inauguration.

President Obama spent $59 on his inaugural and had a Cavalcade of stars that all had requirements for hotel rooms and the such. Trump had no one except for a couple of has been performers. You had a lot of high school marching bands. And yet he was able to spend over a hundred and fifteen million dollars of which 29 million dollars went to a friend of his wife who had never done such a large event. I’m an event planner and I know what it’s like to put together an event I have put an event together as large as 500, 000 people. There is a company that does the inaugurals but for some reason Trump was able to get them to spend more money on his tiny inaugural than they did for President Obama. And then money started disappearing and the more it’s appears the more it becomes fraudulent and the more it becomes fraudulent the more it’s Mueller time.
