If Cohen is the type of guy Trump gets legal advice from then it's no wonder he's been a part of so many lawsuits over the years. Cohen seems to be one of the biggest swamp monsters around and Trump is pretty close to him.

Trump knew, how could he not? But benefit of the doubt will be given to him and Cohen will take the fall. Brilliant move to launder money through a third party.

In Hillary’s cases, we see groups around her accepting money, and then her meeting with the people that have money is person, often times favoring those donors with decisions


In some cases we even have world leaders having to donate to CGI before she would even talk with them as SoS.

While in this case, we (possibly) have a company activally trying to gain insite or influance by paying an attorney to provide information. In the end The President decided to not allow the influancer have their way. This means in simplest terms, "No Pay to Play"


I personally believe that this AT&T thing might be just a hit piece, and have yet to see evidence that it isn't. Either way, Cohen may/may not have taken money, but since AT&T didn't get anything out of it, there was no crime committed by the President. His attorney on the other hand only needs to show that if he did take the money, that it was for legal consultation only. Again no crime committed.

But Trump is the golden God, innocent in every way.

He's so perfect and beautiful.

Praise Trump.



Right??

Let’s take the situation outlined in the op, of the time Warner merger.

Why would trump have his admin sue to stop the merger if he knew about these payments and was also cashing in?

To me, the only thing that makes trump look bad here is if he is giving favors for the groups that are paying his lawyer.

So far it seems to be the opposite of that.

So even if trump knew Cohen was cashing in, seeing as how he still went against these groups making payments, maybe he just laughed at how dumb they were to pay Cohen when it didn’t affect him in any way

I don’t see how that makes trump bad in this situation

Hypothetically?

He got the cash and said "Neener, neerer. Sue me!" Or is he too honest to do that?

Not that I think that's what happened.

Is this the merger that required CNN to be sold in order to be approved?

Whether Trump was knowledgeable or profited from this remains to be seen


Seriously? The chance of Trump not knowing is remote. And even if he didn't support ATT what about the other payment???

If he knew about any of them he needs to be impeached ASAP.

I mean that’s far fetched, but ok.

No doubt then a PO’d time warmer would be releasing documents showing they got assurances from trump that if they paid him, he would push the merger through.

That whole situation seems very very unlikely

1) Hiring an attorney for consultation is not illegal
2) As there is no "pay cap" for attorney time - nothing illegal
3) If you get an attorney for a divorce , it is perfectly legal to have them contact the spouse or any other individual concerned to put "feelers" out.- same is the case here
4) Attorneys have lots of clients. Else , they would not be in business long
5) Stop scraping the bottom of the pickle barrel for anti-Trump goodies.

Thus setting themselves up for criminal charges? Nope, they'd grumble and stay quiet. And Trump would know that.

Hypothetically.

This is the type of nonsense that I love.

So if any politician knows that any of their lawyers or people close to them gets any money from any company, they should be impeached?

Unbelievable

Explain the notion of, "impeached ASAP", While Obama was fronting Fast and Furious, freeing terrorists, and paying money out to know supporters of terror? Shouldn't he have been impeached too, or is that racist?

Would they be? I guess maybe

Nonetheless, this theory not only has no proof, but is so far fetched that you might as well theorize that trump knows time warner are in a sex cult and therefore took their money and voted against the merger in an effort to stop abuse.

Oh and eta,

I know you are just speaking hypothetically, I was just being a little tongue in cheek

Pretty sure bribing the president would be considered a crime.


But I said it was hypothetical.

Sure, but it could also be as simple as a crony lawyer who is not above exploiting his publicly known access to the new president.


Very true. That goes well beyond what is reasonable to accuse Hillary of.



What would be Trumps benefit here? A split on the 600k?


I have no reason to suspect Trump is involved.



I think there needs to be some benefit found that shoes Trump benefited before he could be put up with Hillary. Heck this might even take him all the way up to Chenney level.


Sure. I'm note sure why we even put Hillary "up" there either.

Gee, well conected lawyers sure make a lot of Moola. I think this kind of thing goes on all over DC. It is not right but I doubt if it is illegal if done right. I have a feeling that it was this type of money that he used to pay the pornstar, not really campaign contributions.

Still say all I see so far is Cohen trying to make a buck off Trumps name / his association with Trump.

Not likely though.


Given that trump pumps his merchandise in order to profit from the presidency, I would guess he knew about it and directed it but Mueller caught on very early in the process.
