Darkest Day For The Presidency

Nobody claimed yesterday's plea bargains were directedly related to Russia. But Ed uses that as an excuse to deflect away from the fact that he professes 100% support to a President who's a pathological liar. If that isn't bad enough, Trump surrounds himself with low lifes and convicted felons.

 

It's only been about 1 1/2 years and how many members of the Trump Campaign/Adminstration have been indicted and/or pled guilty? As I stated before, Trump supporters don't care about honesty, the truth, and having a President who represents real Americans.

Critical wrote-Trump Cult members support a man in the White House who's a pathological liar. That liar surrounds himself with criminals, other liars, and numerous low lifes. None of this bother's Trump's most loyal supporters.

 

Their reaction to yesterday's events proves what I said above.------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------And to all you Trump haters this  must proved Trump  colluded  with Russians and none of this bothers those suffering with Trump Derangement syndrome. The only reason Manafort and Cohen are in jail today  are for reasons nothing to do with Russia. Mueller ,no doubt , is hoping Liar Cohen will start composing  fake stories to make some kind of  leap  to Russia Collusion. Americans are smarter than that.

It can get a lot darker. 

 

I don't think Trump will go quietly.

 

Do you--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Trump will not go at all and Alan Dershowitz has said violating campaign finance law in every Presidential election is common and almost the same crime as J-Walking. You pay a fine and it is done. Not an impeachable offense. Even Obama and the "Chosen One"  Hillary has violated this law.

Yet.

 

Trump is still in office, Republicans in Congress are still running interference for him, Republican minions are still loyal to him.

 

It can get a lot darker. 

 

I don't think Trump will go quietly.

 

Do you?

Darkest Day For The Presidency

A dark day for Trump. The darkest day for the presidency since Watergate.
ANALYSIS: Two of the president's former associates were in court Tuesday. Both guilty of multiple felonies. What happened to draining the swamp?

CHARLESTON, W.Va. — There hasn't been a darker moment for a president — or for the presidency — since Richard Nixon resigned on the verge of impeachment in 1974.

On Tuesday, Michael Cohen, the president's longtime fixer and former personal lawyer, pleaded guilty to felony crimes that included illegally paying women hush money to help Donald Trump win the presidency in 2016. Most important, he said he did so at Trump's direction.

 
 

In other words, Trump cheated to win the White House, according to one of his closest former associates.

Cohen's admissions were so damaging for the president, both legally and politically, that his lawyer Rudy Giuliani could point only to the lack of an indictment directly against Trump as the good news. "There is no allegation of any wrongdoing against the president in the government’s charges against Mr. Cohen," Giuliani said.

Cohen's plea was just one of several punishing blows delivered Tuesday to Trump's narrative that he and his allies came to Washington to "drain the swamp" of corruption. The others: Paul Manafort, the president's onetime campaign chairman, was convicted on eight counts of bank and tax fraud, and Rep. Duncan Hunter, R-Calif., an early endorser of Trump for president, was indicted on federal charges that he violated campaign finance law.

"The president is clearly guilty of high crimes and misdemeanors," New York Times columnist Bret Stephens, a conservative, wrote on Twitter after the Cohen plea. "He should resign his office or be impeached and removed from office." Stephens has been a frequent critic of Trump but had not previously called for his removal.
