Does Trump Have Obama Divorce Papers? And If He Did, Why Would He Release Them?
New York Mag ^

Posted on 10/23/2012 2:26:50 PM PDT by TigerClaws

For a while today, it seemed like Donald Trump's "big ... very big ... very big" bombshell revelation about President Obama, which he has promised to unveil on Twitter tomorrow, might be an anonymous rumor that Obama sold cocaine in college, but Trump's right-hand man, Michael Cohen, has denied it. Trump's scoop is "substantially more important to the American people," Cohen told Daily Caller. Or ... is it? Douglas Kass, a Florida-based investor who appears on CNBC’s talkshow ‘Squawkbox’ where Trump is often a commentator, tweeted to his 48,000 followers: 'High above the Alps my Gnome has heard that Donald Trump will announce that he has unearthed divorce papers between the Prez and his wife.'

Obama getting shed of the Mooch? Hell, that would probably GAIN him votes. People would give him more credit for a brain than they have in the past.

People around the country are filling out absentee ballots, or engaging in other forms of early voting. The big day itself is just around the corner: time is very short.

Trump has news -- big news! -- hang on! You're gonna want to hear all about this!

He'll let you know in a day or two.

What a joke.

Divorce papers? That might be damaging if it was...1912.

I tend to agree with the author’s premise. The MSM would do the “woe is me” outrage for Obama. It would serve no good to release this unless there was something extremely embarrassing in it.

Remember Obama managed to get Ryan’s divorce papers made public during his senate campaign. Payback would be a dirty, but fitting way for Obama to lose this race.

If you remember 0bama’s campaign had his opponent’s divorce papers unsealed and it contained the candidate’s wanting his wife to go to a swinger’s club with him. It destroyed the guys career.

If this happened in Illinois, I am guessing that Illinois must not be a no fault divorce state and that some kind of grounds has to be named. Wouldn’t really want to speculate on what those grounds might be.

I hope the Romney campaign denounces this when it comes out. I hope they are in the dark as much as we are. I am not really in favor of this garbage coming out because of the potential damage to the Obama girls.

Court sets release of Ryan's divorce file; Judge admits son will be harmed (Flashback)
Chicago Tribune ^ | June 18, 2004 | Michael Martinez and Rick Pearson

Posted on Friday, July 17, 2009 11:24:14 PM by Red Steel

LOS ANGELES - Dealing a blow to the U.S. Senate candidacy of Republican Jack Ryan, a California judge ruled that several sealed divorce records likely to embarrass the candidate and his ex-wife should be opened to the public.

Ruling on a request brought by attorneys for the Tribune and WLS-TV, Superior Court Judge Robert Schnider acknowledged that the resulting publicity from the disclosure would be harmful to the couple's son, a key argument Ryan had raised in seeking to keep the documents from public view.

But Schnider said he had weighed the public interest of disclosure against the private interests of the Ryans and their child. "In the end," Schnider found, "the balance tips slightly to the public.

"They were aware they were in a public court system and protection from embarrassment cannot be a basis for keeping from the public what's put in public courts," said Schnider, referring to Ryan and his ex-wife, actress Jeri Lynn Ryan. Additionally, Schnider said, "the openness of court files must be maintained, so that the public ... can be assured that there is no favoritism shown to the rich and the powerful."

The judge did not elaborate on the nature of the allegations.

-snip-

Ryan is facing Democrat Barack Obama for the Senate seat being vacated by one-term Republican Sen. Peter Fitzgerald.

Recent warnings

In recent days, Ryan had begun warning leading Republicans that he expected embarrassing information about him would be contained in documents that the judge ordered released

-snip-

Portions of the Ryans' divorce records were placed under seal by Schnider in the fall of 2001.

-snip-

In the current case, Jeri Ryan has joined her ex-husband in opposing the release.

This kind of thing could backfire bigtime, unless there is some really dirty laundry in there. In any case, I doubt Romney wants this distraction now.

Might be interesting if the rumors of Obama’s homosexuality is listed as one of the grounds for divorce.

As loathe as I am to defend Obama on ANY subject...if the Wookie once tried to leave him that is totally personal and none of our business.

Low class, yes, although it couldn't happen to a more deserving person. It's not whether she ever thought about leaving him, it's what juicy excuse she alleges in the filings that would get attention.

Divorce filings often include the filer's reason for seeking the divorce. Just as a for-instance, how do you think would it impact the race if Michelle had submitted sworn testimony in court documents that Obama had smacked her around?

"As loathe as I am to defend Obama" "Low class move dredging this up. Equally as bad as Obama’s airing of the Jack and Jeri Ryan divorce."

Forget class, this is a life and death war. Whatever hurts, employ. Equally bad? We need to be worse.

LOL @ loath, you went out of your way so to do.

Ryan’s divorce was personal too, but did not stop the Kenyan. I think his girls would survive an old issue from 2000. So likely irrelevant “surprise” unless info in the papers include revelations about his unsavory commie/antiAmerican ties.

An unfiled divorce wouldn't have any negative impact on Obama, unless the reason for the divorce is damaging.

Ed Klein's book claims that Michelle and Barry considered divorce in the wake of his loss to Bobby Rush in 2000. He was depressed, and they were left in debt.

But, what if that wasn't the reason? Can you think of any grounds for divorce that might be damaging?

Were divorce papers actually filed in court or did a lawyer draw them up and keep them in a file for later use? Did someone working for a lawyer alert them to this or did someone in a clerk’s office do it? Even if true, I doubt Obama would lose a single vote because of it. With Trump, once again, much ado about nothing.

Romney is surging now. Does he really need any extra help? I’m hoping Trump and Romney at least have a “pre-release” discussion about the potential help/harm any disclosure may have on the campaign.

I worry that if the divorce thing is true Oboingo would get a sympathy vote bump (”Aw, poor guy, he’s getting divorced. I’ll vote for him so at least he doesn’t lose his job too”). Yes, some Americans are THAT stupid.

There are two primary things that could effect the race.

She outs him in the divorce papers or she said he was physically abusive.

Though, who is going to believe that. Moochie wears the pants.

Perhaps she was seeking custody and outlined his misdeeds.
