"As part of the plea deal under discussion, Cohen is not expected to cooperate with the government, one source said. However, by pleading guilty both Cohen and prosecutors would avoid the spectacle and uncertainty of a trial."

Mueller got to the bottom of the Russian collusion ..... I mean Trump’s connection to a stipper/porn star.
Our government is way out of control and Mueller is way outside the scope of the investigation.
“CNN sources claimed”
stopped reading right there.
I hear at 4 o’clock announcement..I’m SOOOOOO sick of this chit!!! Consider this witch hunt to continue for the next 6 years!! UGH!! F U SESSIONS!!!
Recently I was told that a friend died by someone very close to the event. He told me he was cutting down a tree and the tree snapped back and hit him in the side of the head, killing him.
Turns out the tree fell against another tree, turning the other tree into a powerful spring, and the part closest to the stump was lifted off the ground. The tree was then parallel to the ground and was snapped back to him like a battering ram and hit him in the chest, utterly crushing it.
i.e. I don’t trust early explanations on a breaking news story.
Have you ever seen what a swamp looks like after it’s been drained? The snakes are all dead, the swamp critters driven out and scattered, mostly dead. The stink goes away.
I live in a swamp; they don’t even begin to stink until the water level drops and the flip flopping fish die have stilled. The snakes remain very much alive, safely hidden among the cypress roots, until discovered and dragged out one by one.
I see they needed 4 authors to make up this story...
Yep. I’d like to know how much this crap has cost the taxpayers, and of all it done to appease Her Royal Screeching Hellness Hillary F. Clinton, the biggest criminal in US politics ever. I would guess it’s already cost millions and what have we learned? Trump got a BJ from a ho 12 years ago and paid her to shut her yap while he was campaigning - which she didn’t honor which comes as no surprise being that she is a whore, and we also learned Cohen and possibly Manafort committed 1/100000th of the financial shenanigans the Clinton crime family committed, but of course that must be ignored because like I said, Hillary is royalty, Her Royal Hellness.
I can certainly understand why the government would want to avoid the uncertainty of a trial, but Cohen?
Campaign finance enforcement comes under the FEC.
The DoJ has no independent authority to investigate campaign finance, the FEC would have to request DoJ help.
Cohen probably wouldn’t commit tax fraud since he would know the government knows how to get money from rich people.
And bank fraud? A lawyer knows how to put things in the best possible light without telling a lie.
The taxi medallions would probably be under long-term leases.
“Id like to know how much this crap has cost the taxpayers”
Probably not - $17 million+
Mueller’s way to drag this scam out even farther
The election of Presidential electors is governed by state law under the Constitution.
Also at the time, Trump was considered by almost all reputable experts to have no chance of winning. At that time, Trump was really only exercising his rights to political speech.
Also, these campaign finance laws seem to only trip up outsiders and are almost certainly unconstitutional.
You are so right, Rose of Texas. Our government conducted this raid of Cohen, (and probably found plenty to get Cohen to squeal). But what kind of government is ours that can do this just to attempt to bring down a duly elected President. We are lost. I now give credence to things I hear about civil war...our government has turned against its citizenry.
Unfreakin’real. That’s OUR money blown through to appease these freakin scumrats who have absolutely ZERO interest in doing what’s best for the country..AAAAH Yep, you shouldn’t have told me.
NY Times, per Rush, says that he plead guilty to paying off women for Trump, which is ridiculous. Hush money payments are not a crime.
Paying off woemn “In the attempt to influence an election.”
I don’t know what this means exactly, but this is what they’re standing on.
