Cohen implicates Trump

Yehawwwwwww!
Hang on to your hats folks, it is gonna get rough,

Trump probably feels like a pinata about now. He is getting the stuffing knocked out of him.

Prognosticators, what is next?

Trump's pecker got him in trouble before his collusion did.

What does Michael Cohen’s plea deal mean for Trump? I asked 12 legal experts.

Cohen willing to tell Mueller about ‘conspiracy to collude’: lawyer

https://nypost.com/2018/08/21/cohen-...ollude-lawyer/

Quote:
Michael Cohen is willing to speak with Special Counsel Robert Mueller about a “conspiracy to collude” with Russia during the 2016 presidential campaign, his lawyer said on Tuesday night.

Cohen — who pleaded guilty earlier on Tuesday to helping President Trump pay hush money to two women — wants to tell Mueller that Trump knew of an infamous 2016 meeting at Trump Tower and the Russian hacking of Democratic institutions before they took place, Lanny Davis told MSNBC.

“Mr. Cohen has knowledge on certain subjects that should be of interest to the special counsel and is more than happy to tell the special counsel all that he knows,” Davis told the network.

“Not just about the obvious possibility of a conspiracy to collude and corrupt the American democracy system in the 2016 election, which the Trump Tower meeting was all about, but also knowledge about the computer crime of hacking and whether or not Mr. Trump knew ahead of time about that crime and even cheered it on.”
Donny is toast. He'll go down fighting, though. Watch for him to try to fire Mueller. These fucking GOP "leaders" in Congress are still sitting on their hands.

Michael Cohen's Lawyer Says His Client Would Never Accept Pardon From 'Corrupt' Trump

https://www.npr.org/2018/08/22/64079...resident-trump

Cohen’s out on bail. He had best be on guard for polonium tea. NOTHING is too far fetched for this fake president* when it comes to self preservation, including asking for help from his handler, Pootin.

Unless and until the GOP stronghold on Congress flips, nothing will happen to Trump from the disclosures by Cohen. A sitting president will not get indicted by the JD. But his credibility will continue to get shorted.

This editorial does not seem to be behind a pay wall.
Quote:
From the start of the Russia investigation, President Trump has been working to discredit the work and the integrity of the special counsel, Robert Mueller; praising men who are blatant grifters, cons and crooks; insisting that he’s personally done nothing wrong; and reminding us that he hires only the best people.

On Tuesday afternoon, the American public was treated to an astonishing split-screen moment involving two of those people, as Mr. Trump’s former campaign chief was convicted by a federal jury in Virginia of multiple crimes carrying years in prison at the same time that his longtime personal lawyer pleaded guilty in federal court in New York to his own lengthy trail of criminality, and confessed that he had committed at least some of the crimes “at the direction of” Mr. Trump himself.

Let that sink in: Mr. Trump’s own lawyer has now accused him, under oath, of committing a felony.

Only a complete fantasist — that is, only President Trump and his cult — could continue to claim that this investigation of foreign subversion of an American election, which has already yielded dozens of other indictments and several guilty pleas, is a “hoax” or “scam” or “rigged witch hunt.”
Branding diehard Trump supporters cultists says it all.
