Trump is now an unindicted co-conspirator. That sounds familiar.

In light of Cohen's plea today, I think Trump and Rudy can stop insisting that Mueller be done by the end of August. If anything, today's events just prove there's still plenty of work to do.

If paying off hookers to influence an election is a felony crime, what's the chance paying someone to pay off hookers to influence an election is ALSO a felony crime?

 

Seems like Der Trumper is staring at FIVE felony crimes.

1. Paying for someone's silence to influence an election

2. Conspiring with a foreign national spending money to influence an election

3. Accepting contributions from a foreigh national for a political campaign

4. Conspiring with a foreign national to influence an election (the Russian hacking.

5. Numerous statutes against fraud and coersion,

 

This doesn't even BEGIN to address his financial ties with Russia and his acceptance of emoluments from dozens of foriegn Governments.

 

Looks to me like the Mueller Investigation is taking so much time because his staff has to type up so many Felony Crimes that Trump and his Family of Traitors (including his political "family", the GOP and Administration) have committed.

 

So that's 19 indicted (plus 12 Russian GRU Officers) with 7 GUILTY so far.

The next step will be to subpoena the various ladies involved and get their side of the story.  It takes a lot of information to make a case under election finance laws.  

 

Gee. I wonder if there are MORE porn stars in the mix!

 

 

I think this is going to be very embarrassing for Melania.

August is a cruel month. It is when the Nixon scandal broke, when the Clinton scandal broke, and now, when the Trump scandals (not the plural) are breaking.  So much for that whole "witch hunt" thing, eh? 

 

 

Michael Cohen, President Donald Trump's former personal lawyer, stated Tuesday that Trump directed him to pay women to stay silent about damaging stories during the 2016 presidential campaign.

The statement came as part of a plea deal that Cohen struck Tuesday afternoon with federal prosecutors in New York.

"I participated in the conduct for the purposes of influencing the election," Cohen said in court.
