I have probably mentioned this before but those in charge of criminal enterprises ALWAYS get a little "taste". I don't think Jackass is any different.

A suitcase full of cash changes hands in the Bahamas. A cigarette boat delivers it to a yacht docked in Palm Beach....it funnels into Trump Org. All contracts are verbal. Non disclosure agreements may extend to the health of your loved ones.

Al Capone was small time compared to the Trump Syndicate.

I'd bet anything that's exactly how it happens.

I was trying to say that if Cohen was kicking back then he just might have documentation. If he did kickback then that would be a conspiracy to take bribes (or somesuch). In any case taking money, even second-hand for access is not, I suspect, lawful?

Oh, can't resist. It also seems that there are a couple of courts, now, that have sealed indictments from Mueller. That, I suspect, will provide a lot of entertainment!

Here's a nice summary of what the House Democrats are looking at, with their extensive document requests:

What The Democrats’ Trump Investigators Are Looking For

The list is long, but I notice it does not cover Trump's money laundering deals with individual sales to Russian nationals.

The more I think about it the more I am becoming convinced that Cohen is actually aiming the house at what they need to be looking at. I suspect that Mueller has him out there 'helping' them to go in the right directions. All this talk about. This would be one way to work around all the talk about reports, who sees them, if anybody, etc.

When he is asked a question, for instance, he just doesn't answer it but gives sources and suggestions. I have no idea what he is saying in the closed meeting but I assume more of the same.

Jackass might be able to shutdown investigations by the DOJ, FBI, etc. but he cannot shut down the House and the house IS motivated!

Then there are all the sealed indictments being held by at least two courts.

I suspect things are going to get real interesting real quick?

Nice little article on Slate about the slam-dunk case against Trump et al for money laundering:

How to Nail Trump for Money Laundering

Surprise! It's not for real estate and Russians. It's about the way he and the Trump organization reimbursed Cohen for bimbo payments, who has even supplied images of the checks he received to prosecutors.

Oops! It Exists: DOJ Finds Letter Ordering Scrutiny of Uranium One, Hillary Clinton (Daily Beast). The letter itself is unremarkable, but its existence raises two questions: who lied about its existence? And Why?

Republicans have long alleged that then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton declined to oppose the deal because of contributions to the Clinton Foundation.


I am not so much concerned about perjury, as that would have come to light eventually, as I am about this nonsensical statement of idiot-ological article of faith.

First she was not directly involved and evidence at the time suggested she was unaware of the negotiations (if I recollect correctly ... yes I know, she did not have to publicly be seen involved and could have secretly in her best conspiratorial way made it known to each agency to sign off because her Foundation made off with large donations).

Second and more importantly, if they believe that contention, then they have to believe that every agency involved in signing off also was either involved in the same conspiracy or the whole energy segment of the Obama administration was involved in similar conspiracies with the Russians.

I am sorry but I have to call out Rep Jordan. He suffers from a major case of paranoia and needs help immediately.
