Yeah, you are actually going to have to read more than one of my comments before trying to get me to cycle back through the conversation I had earlier. I've already responded to the 'but he didn't sign it' argument. But, I'll help you out:

1. He didn't have to sign it: Link

2. Stormy was the only one required to deliver a signed copy to 'DD': Link

3. AND, there is a counterpart clause, so there's no reason to believe he didn't sign it and has a signed copy in his possession, right now:


Considering Melania married him knowing he cheated on Ivana with Marla Maples...I can't muster much sympathy. There were even jokes at their wedding that people *thought* this would be his last marriage.

And why would I care about two adults having consensual sex? I don't.

Why do you care? Did you care about Larry Sinclair's claims? Did you feel bad for Michelle and were you disgusted that Malia was only a year old when Obama cheated with Larry?

Sources now saying Stormy Daniels is cooperating with federal investigators in Cohen probe.

Not really surprising.

That's the whole problem, right there. Thank you for spelling it out so clearly for all to see.

You don't care about justice. You don't care about law. You don't care about rights. All you care about is that some guy you don't know, have never met, and who doesn't even know you exist, sitting in an office miles from you, said this was good because it might hurt someone else you do not know, have never met, and who doesn't know you exist.

Really. That's just pathetic. What ever happened to individual thought and reasoning?

Larry Sinclair. Hilarious. Truly priceless. I can't believe people still believe that crap. Some folks are so gullible and naive. Some just can't tell real news from fake news.

One is a right wing homo-erotic fiction smear campaign without any basis in reality.

The other is an active court case with compelling evidence.

Too bad this is about the money not the NDA.
And the money that was paid came from somewhere and a lie was told in its obtainment unless Cohen told the bank I'm paying hush money to a porn star on behalf of candidate donald trump.
He could not enter into any kind of agreement without trumps knowledge. If he did he committed an ethics offense and will likely be disbarred.
More trump effect. Given enough time everything he touches turns to #.

Said the man who suggested that Mueller's family should be targeted.

Your enthusiasm for tyranny as a defense for the disgustingly corrupt and criminal people Trump has surrounded himself by is gross.

The best part of this....you are all hoping this collapses because of a porn star who denied she had sex with Trump. Stormy Daniels will take down the presidency...maybe 'go down' but sorry...move along nothing to see as always.

What gets me is -- people/posters think they actually know what's going on.

Like they have all the detailed inside info/facts.

They don't.

Speculation is the best anyone can do.

And, of course, speculation leans in the direction one wants to believe.

No, I was simply saying everyone should play by the same rules. You seem to have chosen a blank rule book.

Cohen was not raided just for Stormy Daniels.
that is the only thing his lawyers have mumbled about, but they haven't explained the full breadth of the warrant or shared it.
Interestingly, the law firm Cohen apparently was working for and had offices at is the same law firm that represents Cambridge Analytica (Their London Law offices were raided by Scotland Yard a week or two ago).

Also of note, if the Feds find anything in the banking records or other evidence they seized that is relevant to Special Counsel's investigation, they are obligated to forward it to the SC team.

Taxi Medallions were included in the warrant (one of the only other things that Cohen's lawyer mentioned)
NYC Taxi Cab Medallions can go for 100k+ a piece as I understand it and they are an easy way to launder money in NYC.

I suspect Stormy Daniels is just a tiny footnote in what this raid was about. It was likely about Money Laundering and shell corporations etc. Where that money came from and where it went will be the interesting reveal when charges are brought.

This warrant to raid an attorneys office would have to outline just such a relationship of collusion to commit a crime because it included documentation of emails, letters, and any notes or recordings of conversations. It included his office his home and his hotel room indicating they're looking at current communications too. In order to overwride attorney client privilege it would take evidence of a crime that involved both parties.
I'm not going to pretend I understand all the law but apparently there exists the circumstance where attorney client privilege is void. Apparently that is the law applied here.

It is your opinion that the FBI, AG, state AG and Associated Judges, virtually all appointed by Trump, signed of on a warrant for a multi-location raid on Michael Cohen's offices without significant evidence of highly criminal activity?

What rule book are you envisioning?

This demographic in our society is what concerns me most. What is even more concerning is facts,reasons and or effects from the cause and effect does not matter.


I believe it’s a byproduct of freedom not a good one of course but I highly doubt those like minds would share a fox hole to fight for the same thing that allows them to be allowed to express themselves. I have a feeling we will find out soon enough sadly.

Twenty years ago Trump expressed his opinion about Clinton and Lewinsky affair. It is relevant to watch as a very similar situation is happening to him now, or could.

He says Clinton should have taken the 5th, since he knew Ken Starr and the Republicans were out to get him. (paraphrasing)
He calls Paula Jones a loser but could be responsible for bringing down a president, indirectly.

God this witchhunt is getting ridiculous .. The FBI gets warned numerous times that a kid was gonna shoot up a school and literally do nothing.

But they raid a sitting Presidents lawyer because he might have screwed a hooker..

It is a joke that is doing nothing but hurting our country.
