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


In Nixon's case, Democrats controlled both the House and Senate, so he likely would have been removed.

With Clinton, it was always a long-shot that he would be removed. So he fought it, and won.

A Trump impeachment would end up like Clinton's. The only charges that could be brought based on what we know are pretty minor. Without some sort of groundbreaking new evidence, the Senate won't remove him.

I am not talking about all billionaires, I am talking about criminal billionaires.

Aren't people suggesting Trump is some type of hardcore criminal, openly working for the Russians while POTUS? That would make him a billionaire crime boss. You'd think Trump would know how to use his money to hide his criminal activity if he is slick enough to work for Russians while being POTUS.

This is all ridiculous anyway. We all know the entire Russian accusation was invented by Trump's opponents in order to open a door to start "legal" investigations. Once the door was opened, those investigations looked for anything they can use to hurt Trump no matter if it was Russian related or not.

Again, that is how big league lawyers play ball. They get in on a false accusation (A), and while they are legally in they look for any and all contradictions, misspeaks, or data points that are not 100% accurate even if they are not related (B). They build a case that you are guilty of (A) because you once did something guilty people do (B).

They tried that with Justice Kavanaugh. They falsely accused him of sexual assault (A), then during legal proceedings they tried to catch him in any lie they could find, for example, his answers on how often he drank beer, and if he ever blacked out while drinking (B). For a moment they tried to catch him in a lie about (B) to somehow make him look guilty of (A).

It's a type of "relevance fallacy", and it's dangerous.

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?


Trump, and his attorney have stated flat out that this story is a lie.

As to the question If he was ever "found guilty" I assume you mean in a court of law?

Really, how credible is Cohen? I would only believe every other word he says.

Cohen has not said anything publicly about this.

Neither has President Trump.

The two sources cited are "Senior Law Enforcement Officials"

Where?

Haven't heard Trump deny this yet and Giulliani is an unreliable source as he has proven often. Stormy Daniels being the least of it.

Oh the irony of your statement. Funny!

Leopold is a known liar and embellishes his stories without sources
and when called on it can't produce evidence. Then blames everyone
else. Even the liberal outlets like Salon and Esquire question this story.

I think the general impression is simpleton easily manipulated or blackmailed.




They tried that with Justice Kavanaugh. They falsely accused him of sexual assault


Not sure he was falsely accused, but his accuser did fail to provide sufficient proof so, apart form exposing him as an intellectually incompetent ass, it's fair that the accusation itself was discounted in the consideration.

No.

You appear to have lied.

The author never claimed to have seen the evidence, he only cited Law Enforcement Officials.

Your link doesn't support your claim in the least.

Were you confused or inventing "untruths"?

It's easy to get the idea that Michael Cohen was focused only on the Trump org., but that's just not true. Long before 2006, when he became a lawyer for the Trump organization, he was involved in all kinds of wheelings and dealings, especially with his Ukrainian born father in law.

Look at Cohen's history, his family ties, his Chicago connections, his Democrat Party association (he didn't register as a Republican till 2017). He voted for Barack Obama.

Cohen's nefarious connections don't involve Trump. Cohen's little side ventures have him in hot water with some seriously bad dudes, imo, and he's doing everything he can to keep himself and his family from being fitted with cement shoes.

I hope so.

I'd prefer his criminal enablers sink with him in a general election.

A resignation or impeachment affords to much time for rats to swim to lifeboats.

So it appears the Buzzfeed reporters who broke the story had to admit they had no evidence to support it and saw nothing to back it up.

The irony.

So sick and tired of anonymous sources and people who claim to be journalists reporting the # as fact when its anything but...

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.


Then what was it about? Dirt on Hillary was offered up and the two groups met, but there was nothing and so the meeting lasted a few mins...kind of end of story unless you know otherwise...

Not defending just saying what I have read on the subject.

Very obvious Cohen was a Democrat Party operative.

The entire charade is comical actually 😁

Buzzfeed News Bombshell Reporter: No We Have Not Seen the Evidence Supporting Our Report


Anthony Cormier is one of the two investigative reporter at BuzzfeedNews who co-authored the bombshell report published Thursday night — a report which claimed President Donald Trump directed his former lawyer Michael Cohen to lie during Congressional testimony over discussions between the Trump Organization and Russian authorities about a Trump Tower Moscow project.

Cormier appeared on CNN’s New Day and revealed that he had not seen the evidence underlying his report.

Host Alisyn Camerota opened the interview by asking Cormier if he had seen the evidence to which Cormier replied: “No, I’ve not seen it personally.” He then clarified that “the folks we have talked to — two officials we have spoken to are fully, 100 percent read into that aspect of the Special Counsel’s investigation”
