Not likely. That's not how billionaires operate. With Trump's money you don't trust anyone with any of your secrets, especially a lawyer. Or you will lose everything.

If a billionaire wanted to do something even remotely incriminating then they pay someone, to pay someone, to pay someone, to pay someone to do their dirty work. You use enough proxies so that the lowest person doesn't know who their boss is, and the highest person doesn't even know what the money is for, and its difficult to be legally connected to anything the lowest guy does even if you follow the money.

They always set up reasonable doubt about the true purpose of the originating funds, and claim one of proxies was corrupted by greed if things go south. You know, a fall guy.


I think your description is more like what crime bosses do.

There are many billionaires that would take offense at your description. Many are the heads of highly trusted financial institutions and pride themselves on their openness and fiscal integrity. Their businesses, and therefore their wealth, depend on their integrity.

Cormier fiercely defended his “rock solid” sourcing on this story.
“My sourcing on this goes beyond the two on the record,” Cormier told Camerota, adding “It’s 100 percent. I am the individual who confirmed and verified that it I am telling you our sourcing goes beyond the two I was able to put on the record. We were able to gather information from individuals who know this happened. ”



Any and all news organization uses anonymous sources which usually they have to tell the name of the sources to their editor.

www.mediaite.com...

So he didn’t actually see the reports the sources told him about doesn’t mean a damn thing as long as the sources verify to him their accuracy...

No, I'm afraid the story IS NOT falling apart, that's your desire in defending your love of a demonic madman in Trump

There's two red flags for me. Unnamed sources and Mueller talking to Trump Organization people. The latter is a flag because that in and of itself is a major story that no one else had broken. t.co...

ALL news organization have anonymous sources. The famous Watergate Washington post reporters that busted Nixon had practically nothing but anonymous sources…one called deep throat who was the second in charge at the FBI.
News organizations have to use anonymous sources or they will be out of business.
Just because he didn’t see the documents with his own eyes means nothing.
The truth in what he reports is based on the source's word.

But not all news sources employ journalists with a history of making
things up. Buzzfeed apparently doesn't have journalistic
standards ....obviously letting Leopold off his leash will prove
damaging once again.

Do yourself a favor and read up on Jason Leopold, one of the authors of the Buzzfeed story. He is a pathetic joke of a journalist, a coc aine addict who was been caught plagarizing others and, yes, falsifying his sources. He gets fired from his current employers every few years for these antics.

Well if that's true then Trump should be impeached and prosecuted just like Nixon was, simple!

Jason Leopold Caught Again - Sourcelss



Jason Leopold Caught Sourceless Again

If there is one common theme that emerges from all of Leopold’s journalistic snafus, it’s that none of it seems to be his fault.


Now the two authors have went on record contradicting one another.

Leopold says he has seen the documents, but who will believe him this time?

The reporter who cried wolf one too many times!

His own partner is contradicting him!!

The media has quite a few people convinced things are "in reverse, bizzaro world"...this sounds the same.

If you ask your divorce lawyer to whack your wife and he does...??,...? You were just mad and venting, unless of course you kept asking.

Sorry, he was going to be impeached and prosecuted but choose to resign instead, too bad indeed none of that actually happened.

But it would have if he had not stepped down, and what a fiasco that would have been?

Can't have that now, can we? LoL

yeah because that was not enough of a national embarrassment, right?

If actual evidence of any crime trump committed surfaces, perhaps we can have a different discussion. At least we know which outcome you are cheering for.

He told Cohen to lie about a deal that was never officially entered into?

Yeah... sounds legit... LOL

(SARC)


The deal was entered into.

Trump even went to Russia and ran a beauty pageant in the hope that he could rope Putin in to it (before Trump was a candidate).

It just didn't come off.


So Trump, who is supposedly Putin's pet, doesn't even get a Trump hotel in Moscow as a reward for becoming President?

That make total sense.........not.


Is there a Putin hotel in Washington?

The idea that Trump is a great deal maker and immensely successful businessman is, once again, demonstrated to be nothing but pure spin.

The guy on "The Apprentice" was a fabrication for the cameras. They don't watch it in Russia and so no-one there was impressed.

I think first we need to look at the actual meeting that by all accounts turned into nothing at all...We still have this short meeting where both sides thought they were there for different reasons and after a few minutes they realized they basically been scammed and that was the end of it all. I'm not sure there would be anything to actually lie about if one wanted to...lol

So in other words....the story is fake news.



Are those "other words" "alternative" and "facts"?

Uninformed?

August 2018: Trump
Organization CFO Allen Weisselberg granted immunity
www.cnbc.com...

Trump Org. Legal Counsel (Cohen) and Trump Org.s CFO (Weisselberg) and that is just what we know about.

You seem to be selling Fake News?

Can you link me to where Leopold said he has seen the emails, texts, tapes? and records?

Meanwhile, Trump has not denied the story.

Honest question, if he is found indisputably guilty of directing a witness under oath to lie to congress in order to obstruct an investigation, should he resign?

Folks with a right wing bent keep saying that?

Why was their a conspired effort to hide the meeting and lie about it's purpose then?

"by all accounts" multiple people that offered their "accounts" are currently under Federal Indictment for lying to the FBI and Courts.
