Re: Russian Leverage Over Trump/Cohen Cooperates

Everything is becoming quite clear. like Conway the Atty has stated.  between the  fact that Trump has no idea when he tweets hoe much he implicates himself. and the fact that perhaps now, he won't be able to do his Trump Tower in Russia. Things are not going well for this man.

It is time for this country to realize that they have really blown it with this man and that he does not represent what he said he was going to represent. 

Becoming blind regarding his actions does ot excuse what he has done to this country and to the Republican Party.

WASHINGTON — New York Democrat Jerry Nadler, the incoming chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, said Sunday that new revelations from one of President Trump’s allies amount to proof that Russia had "leverage" over Trump during the 2016 presidential campaign.

In an exclusive interview on "Meet the Press," Nadler said that former Trump lawyer Michael Cohen’s admissions last week related to his role in securing a Trump Tower in Moscow during the time of the GOP presidential primary raise the specter of a compromised presidential candidate, and now president, that should trouble the American people.

 
 

"The fact that he was lying to the American people about doing business in Russia and the Kremlin knew he was lying gave the Kremlin a hold over him," Nadler said.

"One question we have now is, does the Kremlin still have a hold over him because of other lies that they know about?"

Nice try Jerrold - the date mentioned in the Cohen "confession" was in June. At that time he was representing businessman Trump. The Republicans had their convention in July.

 

However, the "cult of hate" will not let minor details like that change their thinking. So, you have probably accomplished your goal.


You really have no understanding of what is going on. Trump was comprised to Russia due to him telling the American people he had no business dealing with Russia. That was a lie. He had a firm deal with Russia except it could not be implemented due to the Russian bank who was putting the money up (money laundering) was on the US sanctions list. The sanctions had to be lifted and that is what was what the Trump people were working on even after he was elected. Mike Flynn pleaded guilty to not telling the FBI the truth on that. Trump told all on TV he wanted them lifted. Muller will decide what if any charges Trump will face for that.


Aaah, but I do. What is going on is people making stuff up (no dealings with Russia - his firm was trying to build a hotel and never denied it) and others trying to associate the fully legal and appropriate actions of businessman Trump with President Trump.

 

A perfect example of the dishonesty from the anti-Trump gang - Flynn. He was investigated for not doing the proper paper work when he (as a private citizen) contracted with the Turkish government. No connection with the Trump campaign or Presidency in that.


As I said you have no understanding of this. Trump told all he had nothing in Russia in the way of a project or money when in fact he had a finalized deal in place but needed US Sanctions lifted for it to take place. He lied to the American people and Russia could use that lie when they wanted to. He was to lift that obstacle when elected was part of the deal with Russia and that is what his people were working on that have pleaded guilty. Learn your subject.


Try to focus on the issue - not me.

 

Flynn was accused of not doing the right paperwork when he contracted to the Turkish government.

 

As to Trump - yes, his company had business in Russia. End of story.


STATEMENT OF THE OFFENSE

Pursuant to Federal Rule of Criminal Procedure 1 1, the United States of America and the
defendant, MICHAEL T.FLYNN stipulate and agree that the following facts are true and
accurate. These facts do not constitute all of the facts known to the parties concerning the
charged offense; they are being submitted to demonstrate that sufficient facts exist that the
defendant committed the offense to which he is pleading guilty.

1. The defendant, MICHAEL T. FLYNN who served as a surrogate and national
security advisor for the presidential campaign of Donald J. Trump (Campaign), as a senior
member of President-Elect Trump's Transition Team (Presidential Transition Team), and as
the National Security Advisor to President Trump, made materially false statements and
omissions during an interview with the Federal Bureau of Investigation on January 24,
2017, in Washington, DC. At the time of the interview, the FBI had an open investigation into
the Government of Russia's (Russia) efforts to interfere in the 2016 presidential election,
including the nature of any links between individuals associated with the Campaign and Russia,
and whether there was any coordination between the Campaign and Russia's efforts.

2. false statements and omissions impeded and otherwise had a material

impact on the ongoing investigation into the existence of any links or coordination

Yes, while being interviewed about his contract. 

 

Now, what do you think should be the basis for salaries - that is more straight forward.


You really have no understanding of what is going on. His Turkey matter was totally different from his Russia problem. He filed the papers for Turkey late end of that part. Muller does not do Turkey by the way.

 

Consdiering Mueller "did" porn stars, Playboy bunnies, NYC taxi medallions, and an assortment of 'whatever it takes', it is hard to believe he doesn't "do" Turkey.

What you offer has nothing to do with the topic. Cohen is cooperating and Russian leverage over trump is being proven. Tic toc closer to trump, tic toc closer to trump, tic toc closer to trump, tic toc closer to trump .............


What I am offering is a reminder that the events being posted about were prior to the Republican convention hence, involving businessman Trump not President Trump. There is information about businessman Trump's advertising ploys but nothing about any leverage.

Sorry rk, but this latest attempt at concealing Trump's CONSPIRACY against the USA will only work in the Republibubble. Had lil donny NOT gotten the nomination, then you could make the case Trump Organization plotting to give Putin the Penthouse as a payment for services rendered as NOT being treasonous. But the twit won the nomination, gleefully accepted the support of the KGB in driving lofos to the polls and slandering Hillary, and continued to try and work the Moscow deal.


It was a sales gimmick and done before he was nominated. There is nothing there.

 

Maybe you'd best stick to the Reagan tax cuts - at least they were real.
