RE: THE TRUMP PRESIDENCY

If it all pans out........this could be a big achievement for Trump; a very good thing in terms of avoiding a trade war and getting China to be a more fair player/partner.

Snip:
Global stock markets rose on Tuesday, as a speech from the Chinese president was uncharacteristically conciliatory and raised hopes that the country was willing to negotiate in its trade dispute with the United States.

Speaking at the Boao Forum for Asia in the southern province of Hainan, Chinese President Xi Jinping promised to open his country's economy to more foreign investment while modernizing rules surrounding intellectual property and easing tariffs on imported products such as cars.

So much news today. Where to begin. Remember the Russian sanctions that Niki Haley said were going to be enforced? Well, trump walked those back today.

Michael Cohen was due in court today. The judge said he had to give his client list unless Michael's attorneys could argue why not. They were unsuccessful. Michael has 3 clients *snorts* trump, who paid hush money, the Republican who recently resigned because he paid hush money to a playboy model to abort his baby and...wait for it...Sean Hannity! 28

RE: THE TRUMP PRESIDENCY

I took a swipe at him on Twitter. Guy is trying to have us believe that out of all the lawyers in NY, the only one he trusted enough to get real estate advice from was the guy whose only two other clients were strictly sexual deviancy cases, payoffs and shady customers.

Huh.

RE: THE TRUMP PRESIDENCY

You're the only person I've seen suggesting, seriously or facetiously, that any of those people are Russian spies Mags.

You're not the only person I've seen who appears obsessed with using Hillary Clinton as a diversion........it's weak and ineffective every time.

Anyhow, Sean Hannity makes $36 million a year, according to Forbes. He has access to teams of attorneys. No matter how you try to downplay it for partisan reasons, it's effin' weird that he is one of only three clients on Michael Cohen's roster.

Hannity now claims he asked Cohen for real estate advice once and gave him 10 bucks so the conversation would be considered covered by attorney-client privilege. If that's true, it's very weird that Cohen and Cohen's attorney fought so hard not to disclose Hannity as one of Cohen's clients because (a) who gives a fuck about that conversation?, and (b) Sean Hannity would not qualify as a 'client' if that was the extent of what Cohen did for him, as far as I can see. It doesn't make sense.

I think damn near everything collected from Cohen's offices and residence (by warrant) is going to be found uncovered by attorney-client privilege. It's looking like Cohen was almost exclusively a fixer for high-profile Republicans/Conservatives who got themselves in seedy jams rather than an attorney acting in a legal capacity.

RE: THE TRUMP PRESIDENCY

What does anything leaked to the press have to do with Russian collusion? What does anything the N.Y. F.B.I. found in Cohens house have to do with it? And what does Comey have to do with anything Hillary Clinton as a subject of scrutiny by Comey, is that the question? Or what does anything Meuller is doing now have to do with the original subject he was directed to do?

Comey exonerated Clinton and why is that important considering he is a pub? Or is that the basis of your argument. To me it's very clear. But I'm sure there is some explanation.

RE: THE TRUMP PRESIDENCY

Mueller is a Republican lol. Generally speaking, criminals dont get to tell the authorities where they are allowed to look and where they can't. Doesn't work that way. Your boy is everything you idiots were told Hilary was, only he's ACTUALLY A CRIMINAL. And even if Hilary was all those bullshit things you morons believed...
She'd still be way better at it than Trump. She never got caught.

Alex Jones had a weeping crying fit and was yelling "fuck Trump" on his radio show. I wanna know why crying sad Alex Jones isn't a meme already. Where is Zerospheres when we need her?

RE: THE TRUMP PRESIDENCY

Mags, any potential crimes uncovered during an investigation need to be followed through upon under the law (whether they're brought to light through leaks, in the course of separate investigations, via tipsters, etc).

Since Cohen's potential crimes are apparently not related and/or exclusive to Mueller's charter, they were referred to federal prosecutors with the state of New York for investigation.

From there, the state of New York LE investigated, gathered enough probable cause to get a judge to sign off on a no-knock warrant, and gathered potential evidence before it could be destroyed.

Upon review of the materials gathered under the Cohen search warrant........New York state may find no evidence or insufficient evidence to charge Cohen with any crimes. Or, New York state may find sufficient evidence to file criminal charges against Cohen. Remains to be seen.

Comey broke protocol by publicly eviscerating Clinton and sharing his opinions when he made the announcement that no charges were merited against Clinton for using a private email server; there was no evidence of intent.

Comey broke protocol again when he announced that the Clinton server investigation would be re-opened less than two weeks before election day as a result of the Huma/Weiner laptop fiasco (nothing new or relevant was found and, again, no charges were merited).

Comey never mentioned an in-progress Russian collusion investigation against the Trump campaign during the election cycle nor during his tenure with the Trump administration, however. He said that's because it wasn't something already known to the public at that time (whereas the Clinton server investigation was already known to the public).

None of Comey's actions in regards to Clinton were related to Russian interference and nobody has said they were. It was a separate investigation and it's being talked about a lot again now with the release of Comey's book, as is the ongoing Russian interference investigation and a million other political subjects.

After Comey was fired, he had a friend release to the press some information about his encounters and notes related to Trump. There was no law against doing so, though I'd say that was another breach of standard-accepted protocol.

I also think the timing and content of Comey's book and recent interviews is a breach of common protocols for a man who held position of Director of the FBI. But, again, it's not illegal. And, Donald Trump breaches common protocols for a man who holds the highest position in the land everyday (which also isn't against the law in and of itself).

Comey sure as hell did Clinton no favors. And, Comey isn't doing Trump any favors now (aside from getting Trump's loyalists to rally around him even tighter no matter what).

Comey will probably make a fair bit of money off the book, but he's already rich from his private sector work and I think he's doing more harm than good when it comes to his public image.

So anyway..........if Clinton is being re-investigated again and crimes, rather than piss-poor judgment, are uncovered, charge her. Same with Trump and Cohen. No one is above the law in this country.

Comey didn't potentially break any laws and is not under investigation, as far as I know. He thus faces only the court of public opinion and the ire of hard-core Clinton supporters and hard-core Trump supporters.

We don't have a customized meme, but we do have a screen shot and a clip of the Jones meltdown: http://mockforums.net/showthread.php?tid...#pid469476 , post 479.

Hilarious and pitiful stuff.
