Re: The Presidency of Donald J. Trump

I think the **** with the taxes is really just that he's a lot poorer than he says and he really doesn't people to know. There's no Russia stuff or any smoking gun in there, just ego deflation.

Re: The Presidency of Donald J. Trump

As always, best play for Trump is to just rip off the band-aid. Of course I laundered money. That makes me smart, all the smart guys know how to play the game. I make big deals with billionaires and make lots of money --what's wrong with that? Why isn't the fake news saying anything about the Clinton Charity's Benghazi money?

Memo to Trump: Anyone you pardon can be compelled to testify without any grant of immunity, and that testimony could undo you.

Note, Adam Schiff has stated that Congress would re-pass the old independent counsel law if Trump fires Mueller and would then reappoint Mueller. That may be wishful thinking, but there will be a ton of pressure.

That is my understanding. You get pardoned and there is no more fifth to plead.

JFC. Larry, my dude, don't tap the glass. Why would you inform him about that?
