The person I responded wasn't speculating.

They declared it had nothing to do with Russia and Mueller should be immediately fired.

I don't care what they did, I was calling out your hypocrisy.



Via selective quoting and ignoring the post I quoted and responded to, yada yada...

The tactic of personal attacks is getting tired for Trump defenders.

I would respond in detail, but it's boring.

What is amusing is the leftists dancing around in glee.


Yep they just violated attorney client privilege because of petty politics.



????

So you presume that Cohen hasn't broken any laws?

Or is it your presumption that Presidential Immunity extends to loud-mouth ambulance chasers the President employs?

What you should be asking is what is the standard that must be met for a prosecutor to get a judge to pierce attorney-client privilege.

Look that one up and let me know what you find.


Let's hear it for judge,jury and executioner in the kangaroo courts of public opinion.

AND THIS GEM:

Apparently Cohen's Law Firm dropped him like a hot rock!

Wonder what they know?



A source familiar with the situation said agents visited Cohen's office this morning at the law firm Squire Patton Boggs in New York. Angelo Kakolyris, a spokesman for Squire Patton Boggs, said, "The firm's arrangement with Mr. Cohen reached its conclusion, mutually and in accordance with the terms of the agreement."

"We have been in contact with federal authorities regarding their execution of a warrant relating to Mr. Cohen," he continued. "These activities do not relate to the firm and we are in full cooperation."

How else are they going to make half the country ignore his glaring flaws as a human being? They have to make him look like a victim.

The Bible says truth and righteousness will prevail in the end. But in the interim there will be lots of good people ruined.


What does the bible say about lying serial adulterers who bribe politicians and defraud working class people?


Not sure.. I'll just go now and look it up under the Book of Clinton.

Probably not the same VERSION of the bible you were referring to...

Public people are subject to public opinion.

Criminals are subject to prosecution.

Both are valid, albeit one sends you to jail.

Yeah this is Muellers brainchild.

FBI raids office of Trump’s longtime lawyer

The FBI on Monday raided the office of President Trump’s personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, seizing records related to several topics including payments to porn star Stormy Daniels.

Manhattan federal prosecutors obtained the search warrant for Cohen’s office after receiving a referral from the special counsel, Robert Mueller, according to Cohen’s lawyer, who called the search “completely inappropriate and unnecessary.”

The search does not appear to be directly related to Mueller’s investigation but likely resulted from information he had uncovered and gave to prosecutors in New York.


So far outside his investigation its not even funny.

Mueller is trying to cover his ass and is now hoping for anything to get Trump with. The referral and warrant application need to be reviewed to ensure they are valid.

Let me ask you a question - if this had been reversed, if this had been a raid on Obama's lawyer, how loudly would you now be screaming the praises of the FBI? An honest answer, please.

Really funny how all the conservatives are saying how ecstatic all the liberals are dancing around over this.

It would be and has been, the other way round if this was the FBI raiding a liberal lawyer.

You guys are being played. Also trump and Cohen are kinda jerks (meaning not very nice people) it's Karma.

You can still be a conseravtive and not like Trump and Cohen. Seriously. LOL

You would hear me saying the same thing I am now. As much as I dislike Obama I am not a fan of law enforcement / prosecutors defiling long standing protections - period.

The official in New York seized "privileged communications" between Mr Cohen and his clients, his lawyer said in a statement after the raid.

Documents regarding a payment to a porn actress were also seized, US media say.

Mr Cohen has come under increasing public scrutiny since he admitted to making a $130,000 (£92,000) payment to adult film star Stormy Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, just days before the 2016 presidential election.

...snip ...

When a president's personal lawyer is the target of a federal law-enforcement raid, it is a Big Deal.

How big a deal remains to be seen, but the fact that the move came at the request of the Justice Department's Southern District of New York - after a referral from Special Counsel Robert Mueller's office - could be an indication that Donald Trump's affairs are now relevant to a second criminal probe.

Trump-watchers may recall that the president had fired the former US attorney for the Southern District, Preet Bharara, and was reportedly personally interviewing his replacement. A year later, the office is still under the direction of an interim appointment.

According to the New York Times, FBI agents sought information on payments made relating to Mr Trump's alleged affair with porn star Stormy Daniels and other tax and business dealings.

What was once largely a political embarrassment could have metastasised into legal jeopardy

Whats funny about this, is that I dont even think this would hurt Trump if its what I suspect. Looking into the possibility that Michael Cohen violated finance rules. Heck, just by Trump and Cohen's owned words they've basically already laid out all the evidence needed, and Trump threw Cohen under the bus legally. Whats happening here is what should be done by any good prosecutor who has a case and is looking for evidence, and the case against Cohen is well known already.

Being a jerk is not against the law. If it were Obama and Clinton would be serving life sentences.

Also if I am reading into this correctly, this wasnt Mueller's work per se. Mueller referred this case to Rod Rosenstein, who took it out of Mueller's hands and into the Southern District Court of New York, who is now handling this case. Which would make this an investigation seperate from Mueller.
