Let us all hope that the FEC is able to bring or refer criminal charges against Michael Cohen. This guy is one of the biggest bullies, most obnoxious lawyers, and just generally bad people I've ever had the mispleasure of learning about.

If there's any justice in the world, he and Roger Stone will have to share a small cell for a very long time.

Isn't this guy Trump's personal attorney ? Does he have any other clients ? Or does every dime he have come straight from Trump ?



LMAO, this is great! Yes, he is our genius president's "personal" lawyer but he is very involved in politics. Basically, he's the guy who threatens people that allege stuff about, or sue, our genius president. He bullies them into submission and if that doesn't work, he tries to break them by making them spend all their money on frivolous lawsuit stuff. He is a complete a-hole.

BUT....

The Washingtom Post has a great article on the statement this jackhole released. If you actually read it, he does NOT say he used his own money to pay the adult film actress. From the WaPo story:

As Orin Kerr points out, Cohen says he used his own funds “to facilitate” the payment and denies either the campaign or the Trump Organization reimbursed him. He says neither the campaign nor the Trump Organization was party to the agreement. He does NOT say he made the payment out of his own volition, nor does he say Trump personally didn’t foot the bill and sign the agreement. In fact, it is impossible to contemplate a binding deal for Daniels’s silence without Trump being a party...

...To “facilitate,” the dictionary tells us, means to assist with or to make something easier. Given that, I would think that the most literal reading of Cohen’s statement is just that he used his own funds to arrange the payment. He’s not making any statement about whose $130,000 was paid. For example, if it took Cohen a few hundred dollars to set up an entity to pay Daniels, and to wire someone else’s $130,000 to her, then he would have been using his own personal funds to facilitate that payment. Sending on the money would be a transaction between two parties, Daniels and the entity Cohen set up, and there would have been no need to reimburse Cohen $130,000 because it wasn’t Cohen’s money that was sent.

"Hi, I'm Donald Trump's attorney, want to see my Maserati?" That is what possibly happened.



"Hi, I'm Donald Trump's attorney, want me to pay you $130,000 so you can see my Maserati?" is also possibly what happened.

Neither of those things DID happen, but the possibly happened. It's just that they didn't happen.

Let's assume that happened. At some point, Cohen is going to have to answer the question, "What was this payment for?"

My wife thinks it was a "matching" payment. Some tabloid had offered Daniels $$$ for her story, and Trump/Cohen beat their offer in order to keep her silence.

This also happened with a 1998 Playmate who was going to spill the beans on an affair with Trump, and then somehow magically got hired by the National Enquirer for $$$. The owner of the national Enquirer is a big Trump supporter.

These houses of cards are ultimately going to fall down.

Oops, didn't realize this went on for 8 pages. The latest is that Stormy Daniels believes the lawyer broke the non-disclosure agreement, which opens the way for her to talk about it.

$130,000 does sound specific. Not 125 or 150. It does smell like an object or a debt that was exactly that amount.

It's just one whore paying off another whore for the whore in the white house. Simple.

But it is a weird exact amount, not typical.

Awaiting an interview with Stormy, and for her to confirm the tryst happened. Want to see Trump get out of this. Her lawyer now says that since his lawyer has confirmed the payment, that it violated the non-disclosure, and that she is free to talk about it. It's going to get a little chilly in the WH I think, a storm is brewing.

I wonder if she'll tell her story through a reenactment of their affair through a porn film. It would be quite profitable. She could also go the traditional route by publishing and releasing a book. I wouldn't doubt if she hadn't already wrote one or is writing one. I can't see her not taking advantage of this situation for financial gain. $130K was rather small potatoes considering he was the republican nominee with the possibility to become president at the time.

I was thinking that it is possible she will write a book, or has written one. But I can also see her doing the interview circuit for lots of money. Everyone will want to get an exclusive or the first interview. There is possibly a bidding war going on right now to get that.

Stormy Daniel's has the dress that trump humped her in. Unwashed, pristine. It's going in for DNA sampling. Stormy is the new Monica. Yes Monica and Linda, 2 can play that game. I fucking love it.

Telling the world that he likes to grab women by their pussies didn't work. Mocking a disabled reporter didn't work. Hopefully a sperm laden dress will bring this pig to justice. lol
