    Just saying...

    The latest recipient of an immunity deal from the Justice Department is one of Clinton’s closest aides and a figure at the heart of the email scandal, Cheryl Mills.

    She joins two other central figures in benefiting from such deals: former State Department staffer, Bryan Pagliano and tech specialist Paul Combetta.

    In addition to at least two other immunized witnesses according to the Associated Press, they represent the big three of officials involved in the underlying allegations of Clinton’s potential criminal conduct.

    Their collective immunization is baffling.

    I have no idea what you are responding to. I was asking the Seattle poster to back up his statements and yes, I used some snark....

    It is the option of the accused.

    This particular person would not have been charged or had to enter a plea if he never worked for a guy who won the presidency in spite of the wishes political establishment.

    The message in all of this is clear. Stay in your own lane and out of our lane or you will be ruined.

    Maybe that BS works in prison.

    I don't know if Trump is guilty, but I do know one thing... if Obama's personal attorney plead to four felonies, you wouldn't be claiming Obama is innocent. You'd be portraying Obama as a gang leader.

    Don't you think it the least bit odd that Cohen's attorney's would have him plead guilty to [what you say] are only NDA's and not felonies? And why would a judge accept guilty pleas to what essentially are not crimes?

    Trump's ex-lawyer and fixer Michael Cohen sentenced to 3 years in prison after admitting 'blind loyalty' led him to cover up president's 'dirty deeds'
    The result of the plea was that his prison term was reduced from potentially Life and a little more to three years.

    If you're a gambling man, that's a good enough trade-off.

    Stormy Daniels - Donald Trump - Karen McDougal



    If you are "Individual-1" in the Southern District of New York indictment against Micheal Cohen, and you did indeed direct Mr. Michael Cohen to pay off two women just previous to the 2016 election, then yes, you have committed campaign finance felony crimes. #1 - A $150,000 hush money payment to former Playboy model Karen McDougal in the early fall of 2016 for her silence and #2 - A $130,000 hush money payment to adult film actress Stormy Daniels in October of 2016 for her silence. Because Cohen admitted that the payments were intended to protect Trump's election chances, they are deemed to be "in-kind contributions" to the Trump campaign. They grossly exceed the donation limits ($2,700 per election), a criminal violation, and neither was included in campaign finance reports, another criminal violation. Rather than be treated as civil violations (an obvious and/or unintentional accounting/filing error etc.), these campaign finance violations above are treated as felonies because Cohen admitted that he violated these campaign finance laws "knowingly and willfully." He also stipulated that he was directed to do so by his client "Individual-1" who is understood to be Donald Trump.

    Lawyer Micheal Cohen, American Media CEO David Pecker, and perhaps Trump Organization CFO Allen Weisselberg will testify regarding the above campaign finance felony allegations.
    You know, I know we're supposed to say, "don't blame the women", but trump? I mean with me, it's WYSIWYG. I'm the same person here as when I'm in public. I'm not an asshole in public and a freak in the sheets. I'm a freak in the sheets and a nice guy in public. I can't believe that, in private trump is not the same malignant, pedantic narcissist we see him as as president and in the WWF wrestling ring. How in the world could anyone be attracted to that?

    The poster referenced "putting the screws" to the Trump guy in the post to which you responded.

    This link shows that the treatment of the Clinton Gang was very cordial and friendly. This is in stark contrast from the treatment afforded to Trump's gang.

    Equality before the law is a forgotten guideline for our law enforcement officials.

    I don't mean to agree Trump is without quality, but money is a hell of a drug.

    He was not forced to enter a plea due to the FACT that the DOJ, FBI and NIA were not directed to prove a pre-defined agenda.

    Comey, Brennan and Clapper were attacking Trump to interfere with our election process and are now lying or exposing their crimes consistently in every interview in which they participate.

    There are plenty of people with money that don't look like a deflated football, dipped in cheddar dust and who don't smell like KFC grease.

    Who is President?

    Have you been asleep for a few years? I don’t have time to get you up you speed. The most recent example was the Rose Garden Press briefing/conference yesterday. If you aren’t familiar with it, take a look........
