Two of Trump's closest associates: His campaign manager and his personal lawyer:


Looks like the hunting party bagged a couple more witches today.

ALEXANDRIA, Va. — Paul Manafort, President Trump’s former campaign chairman, was convicted on Tuesday in his financial fraud trial, bringing a dramatic end to a politically charged case that riveted the capital. The verdict was a victory for the special counsel, Robert S. Mueller III, whose prosecutors built a case that Mr. Manafort hid millions of dollars in foreign accounts to evade taxes and lied to banks repeatedly to obtain $20 million in loans. Mr. Manafort was convicted of five counts of tax fraud, two counts of bank fraud and one count of failure to disclose a foreign bank account. The jury was unable to reach a verdict on 10 of the 18 counts and the judge declared a mistrial on those charges.



In a stunning development, Trump’s ex-lawyer Michael Cohen says he broke campaign finance laws ‘at the direction of’ Donald Trump, implicating the sitting U.S. president in a felony. 

In a plea deal announced today, Cohen admitted he was guilty of several crimes, including illegally arranging hush money payments to Stormy Daniels and Karen McDougal, who both allege they had affairs with Trump.

Are the Cultists pretending this is fake news?

Get ready for the pardons...

Trump is sharpening his pencil now and the extremists will cheer. In fact, they are already speculating on the Mother Ship how soon it could happen.

And all of this is before we get to GOP Rep Duncan Hunter breaking campaign finance laws too. What a party.

One commenter I read said this is all essentially a nothing burger... the real big news is that Mollie Tibbet's body was found and she was killed by an undocumented immigrant.

Really? The Constitution is under attack by a corrupt admin and illegal immigration is the biggest news?

Imagine of this was Obama, Clinton, Carter or any other Dem in office.

Dave, they know this is very, very, very bad for Trump, so they have to change the subject and pretend none of this matters. It is stunning. Trump's personal lawyer testified that Trump told him to commit a felony. That's impeachable.

Forget the Mother Ship and their fellow cultists. What they think doesn't matter after today.

This may be the nail in the proverbial coffin for Trump. He's a felon and should be impeached for his crimes.


Dave Miller said...

Shaw... you're right about the extremists. They will never see anything wrong here. To them, the Deep State, unable or unwilling to send HRC to jail for all of her "crimes" and having protected Pres Obama for 8 years, is unfairly targeting Pres Trump. Literally like they did supposedly for Pres Nixon.

In their eyes, the Dems always get off scott free and the GOP folks are unfairly sent to jail on yes... trumped up charges.

Shaw Kenawe said...

Dave, it's amazing to read their denials of reality. The Goopers had both the House and Senate, and they could have investigated President Obama on any of their fevered conspiracy theories, but they didn't. I wonder why. The BENGHAZI! investigations delivered nothing for them. Their own Republican committees admitted there was nothing illegal in what happened in that tragedy, a tragedy that was similarly played out during the GOP Bush, Jr. administration on more than one embassy -- the Goopers never called for investigations into those tragedies.

Now, in front of our noses, we see two close associates of #45 found guilty and plead guilty to felony charges. That doesn't include others who've had to resign in disgrace or get fired.

Trump is the embodiment of a mafia boss who surrounds himself with thugs and low-lifes. Because he's one himself.

The Mother Ship et. al, will never admit that they backed and support a felonious, morally corrupt disaster for POTUS. We should never let them forget what they did to America because of their wretched judgement in giving #45 the power of the office of the presidency.
