LISTEN: How Michael Cohen Protects Trump By Making Legal Threats – NPR

Why does a respectable businessman need a fixer? Well he or she doesn’t, but Donald Trump is no respectable businessman. He is right there with the corleones and his mob like way of doing business. So having Michael Cohen as is conciliary is not so weird.

The problem is now he is the president of the United States. And he’s brought his mob like tactics to the White House. No one has ever done this not even Richard Nixon. This is Despicable and hopefully our country can survive this abomination in the White House.

Trump blasts raid on his lawyer: ‘It’s a disgraceful situation’ – POLITICO

After throwing Michael Cohen under the bus on Friday aboard Air Force One now Trump cries foul. Anyone who touches this man is permanently soiled. Whether it’s family, friends, coworkers or employees. The turnover in the White House is at unprecedented levels and seems nowhere near to ending. I am convinced that has the special counsel gets closer and closer to the president his staff is going to jump ship like rats.

If you’re not loyal to those who are loyal to you how can you expect loyalty?
