Ex-Trump lawyer Michael Cohen jailed for three years

Recommended Posts

The 52-year-old told Judge William Pauley that Mr Trump caused him to "follow a path of darkness rather than light".

He told the court his "weakness was a blind loyalty to Donald Trump" and that he "felt it was my duty to cover up his dirty deeds".

Not sure if I believe the issue was misplaced loyalty.  But, I'm sure having all this come out is something of a relief. 

There are a number of good things that have happened as a consequence of Trump being president and one of those is that people who were getting away with rubbish now have a bright spotlight focused on their activities. God is just unstoppable.

Hillary Clinton

TOTAL RAISED

$1,191M

 

Total Raised to Date . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . $1,190.7M

Total Spent . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . $1,184.1M

 ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Donald Trump

TOTAL RAISED

$646.8M

Total Raised to Date . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . $646.8M

Total Spent . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . $616.5M

 

actually Trump spent half the amount on his campaign than Clinton did,$1,184.1M buys a lot of mud.   Michael Cohen is being used to get Trump to save his own rear end.  

Clinton lost the election (fair & square) on her own...

and still absolutely no evidence of "collusion."  LOL

 

Meanwhile, democrats (Clintons, Obamas and anyone with a "D" by their names) are still free even when they sell out America and have plenty of proof of collusion with foreign powers... 

 

must be nice to be a democrat, the laws don't apply to you...

Sadly, probably as many as the entire Democrat Party combined.  And hell, Dems support abortion with their minds, hearts and souls... 

Trump needs lotssss of prayers

Trump still passes Pro-life legislation, so, his abortions don't seem to affect his presidency.  Thanks be to God.

Democrats and Republicans both have stuff that they need to answer for. Both sides are consumed with criticizing each other and refusing to acknowledge that they've made some bad decisions too and see each other as enemies.

Yes, call each other out when someone makes a poor or even evil decision, but don't act like you're above criticism. No one is. Instead of being so focused on who to blame, which doesn't get us much of anywhere, why not focus your energy on actually solving the problems? 

What a shame that when it comes to the presidential election, we can vote third party if we want, but realistically, we get either a Republican or a Democrat for president. I wish we could change that.

The details of the charges against him were recounted in information released by the Department of Justice — although no names were disclosed in the documents, save for Cohen’s.

In total, Cohen was charged with five counts of tax evasion, one count of making an excessive campaign contribution, one count of causing an unlawful corporate campaign contribution and one count of making false statements to a federally insured bank.

only one of the charges has anything to do with  Trump.     Cohen claims he arranged payments “for (the) principal purpose of influencing (the) election” at the behest of a candidate.   The alleged hush money  payment sounds more like "Blackmail" as far as I'm concerned 

the fact that Cohen has been promise leniency if he stabs Trump in the back and gives the Federal prosecutor something, anything to get Trump is disingenuous at the very least

Agreed...

I think both sides are involved in so much dirt, the only difference is that some are better at playing the game and hiding their dirt than others.
