It doesn't take much corroboration when the perp admits the elements of the crime on Twitter.

I think I saw something about Cohen, and unreported income (income tax thing) from selling access to Jackass. At the time I remember that he was getting something like 100,000.00+ for access to Jackass. Since this seemed to be a known fact, and that it was apparently mentioned on one of the redacted papers on Cohen it seems he may have sold a LOT of access. Now, given who he worked for does anybody think that Jackass didn't get his 'taste' of this. If they find that he did THEN we are talking about serious stuff! Given the Jackass proclivities towards mob management it would make perfect sense if Jackass didn't take a 'taste' of all moneys coming in from "other sources".

Just saying..................

This is hilarious:
Democrats Shouldn’t Spend A Lot Of Time Investigating Trump

Quote:
We’ve investigated this for a long period of time. Both sides have come up with nothing in the process
House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy

Nothing except indictments or guilty pleas from 33 people and three companies so far. Watergate only indicted 40 people. I think this looks like the corruption world record.

Quote:
Other top Republicans have also urged Democrats not to focus on investigating the president and his associates. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.), for example, said last month that moving to aggressively pursue oversight of Trump and his administration would amount to “presidential harassment.”

What are the odds that McConnell himself gets vacuumed up in the Mueller machinery somehow?

Before I begin, let me concede that deception and hypocrisy is endemic to politics. But, the LEVEL of hypocrisy and outright mendacity within the Republican party is at a level not seen since Joseph McCarthy. It so far outpaces Democratic sophistry that it is practically incomparable. It behooves those who are the most deceptive (e.g., McConnell, Trump) to say "everyone does it" or for the filthy pot to complain that the smudged kettle is dirty too, but let's be real. It is Trump's primary modus operandi to project his failings on any opponent, to diminish and prevaricate at such a prodigious level that it boggles most opponents. Robert Mueller is not most opponents. His report, even if it finds no direct evidence of Trump collusion, will be thorough, well-documented, and devastating. It cannot fail to be.

Considering that Trump has announced most of his crimes on TV or Twitter, all it takes is some authority to make it official by writing them down and submitting them to a court.

Trump's legal defense is like saying "No homo" before spending the afternoon in a bathhouse.

Witch Hunt = news I really don't like
No Collusion = Collusion

There's a pecker joke here somewhere ...

Federal prosecutors give National Enquirer publisher immunity (CNBC)
Quote:
Federal prosecutors have given immunity to the company that publishes The National Enquirer in connection with the $150,000 hush-money payment the supermarket tabloid gave Karen McDougal, the Playboy model who claims she had an affair with President Donald Trump.

That payment to McDougal was made shortly before the 2016 presidential election and was done "to influence" that election, which sent Trump to the White House, according to the United States Attorney's Office for the Southern District of New York.

Details are important, here. There's a link in the article to the agreement, including agreed facts. Cohen was NOT the only member of the campaign to participate in these meetings.

The important thing about the National Enquirer deal is that they must have given Mueller something important to get such a "Get Out of Jail Free" card. Like totally sold Trump down the river. I'm sure it isn't just because Mueller is a big Enquirer fan.
