Is there no "Federal Campaign Financing Rules" manual, to use as a legal guide?

Is there no "Don't kill people" manual, to use as a legal guide?




Criminy.

"I didn't know."

Seriously?

Is that a YES or a NO?

Yes.
There are laws regarding federal campaign contributions and how they are to be reported.

If one is dealing with aspects of those laws it is one's responsibility to be aware of all of them. Especially if one is an attorney.

The usual suspects saying "but but Hillary."
Speaks volumes to me.
Trumps lawyer is looking at jail, said "the candidate" instructed him to do it, the same lawyer called an honourable lawyer by Guliani months ago, yet Hillary.

The big conspiracy is why so many in here are now blind, deaf and dumb?

So how many of Trump's 'best people' are now guilty of federal crimes?

Amazing how everybody around Trump is somehow a criminal and part of the swamp eh...

Let me rephrase it then.

You are mistaken.


Partially. It was sexual misconduct by Clinton that had to go to the Supreme Court in Clinton v Jones.
He had so many other rape charges that it was hard for me to keep track...

There, did your heavy lifting again for the last time.




There were zero rape charges.

There were 4 allegations of sexual misconduct. But zero charges brought.

Actually...you make the claim, it's up to you to support it. That's how these things work.

people seem to be forgetting about what is really the most important part of this. that is the fact that this is a plea deal. and a plea deal does not actually mean the person actually committed any crimes that are involved. in fact a plea deal is why so many completely innocent people are in jail. bad lawyers, lying investigators, and pressure can all be a big reason why people will take a plea deal. as they, even when completely innocent of all charges are convinced that there is no hope of being found not guilty. another reason people will take a plea deal is that they are offered far more lenient sentencing for any crimes they actually did commit, or not commit, compared to what they at least think they are likely to receive.

just take a look at what personal stuff he is "admitting to", which is really most of it.
FIVE counts of income tax evasion that each have a possible FIVE YEAR incarceration, plus three year supervised release. not to mention a fine for each offense of $100,000, plus twice the amount gained from the offense. and silly enough another $100 assessment fee.

so just for this first set he is looking at a possibility of 25 years in jail, plus 15 years supervised release on top of that plus fines of $500,500, plus twice of whatever amount he is supposed to have gained from it. seriously just this one set of charges is more than enough to seriously consider taking a plea deal, which only gives him 46-57 months (3 years and 10 months to 4 years and 9 months). which is not even 1/5 of the possible time he would face if convicted. plus a fine of $20,000-$1,000,000. which is just under double the possible fine, not counting the double of whatever the amount he gained (which i would think would be substantial). seriously just this would be more than enough to make taking the deal guilty or not guilty a very tempting thing to take. no matter what other possible crimes they want him to admit to.


then the next charge which is all by it'[s self a possible 30 years in prison, and 5 years supervised release. plus a possible $1,000,000 fine. which takes his possibility up to 55 years in jail, plus another $1,000,000 fine possible (which is the possible fine he might have to pay under his deal. makes it much more a rather lucrative idea. seriously if you were looking at all this time and money (provided you had a lot more money than that), would make under a 5 year stay, most likely at a "club fed", minimum security facility not a really bad idea, even if you know you are not guilty.


and it's only after this we start getting into things that may, or may not have anything to do with Trump. IF they are even true. and he is a slime. why not throw someone under the bus with unsubstantiated admissions for the AWSOME DEAL, over his other charges. besides people have been killed for much less going against what Hillary wants than this. he could even be saving himself from committing "suicide", by two shots to the back of the head by taking this deal.
