Re: The Presidency of Donald J. Trump: Operation Desert Stormy

On the one hand, our sitting president is publicly slandering somebody. On the other, it's Sam Nunberg.

I'm glad he's fixing them because "Micheal is a businessman for his own account/lawyer" means what?

Re: The Presidency of Donald J. Trump: Operation Desert Stormy

Trump not getting enough credit for NK, dems acting like they are secretly hoping for progress here to fail with some reps admittedly too hopeful.

Being part Korean I’ll say that the demeanor of NK is a rare one to see even if they have played similar games before. I don’t know if they’ve ever put allowing US troops in SK on the table before and SK seems shockingly optimistic currently. Maybe KJU wanted to get the nuke program to 90% to have a solid bargaining chip and the big question is do we give Rodman credit if things do come to fruition?

Man, hiring fourth rate losers then treating them like **** just has to catch up to him at some point.

Cohen has probably already given the Feds everything.

Re: The Presidency of Donald J. Trump: Operation Desert Stormy

So what's max reasonable expectations regarding Mueller? Can someone give me a + or - X timeline on when recommendations for impeachment would come?

+/- 3.5



What kind of answer are you expecting? Your guess is as good as anybody else's.

You need to read up on correlation and causation.

Yea, Avenatti's last sentence in that tweet is "Too little too late." Pretty telling honestly.

It means Trump is a ****ing moron.

For the lawyers ITT, isn't this a violation? I thought Trump/Cohen not supposed to speak to each other?

Maybe I'm wrong, but I thought b/c Cohen is under investigation and had all his stuff raided, he's not supposed to be in contact w/ any of his clients.

Re: The Presidency of Donald J. Trump: Operation Desert Stormy

Trump can talk to him all he wants, it's just not confidential and he may try to obstrut justice in doing so.

Muller will probably issue a report on the obstruction part of the investigation in may.

inorite, without wikileaks we never would have known how podesta and hillary were sacrificing the bodies of little sex slaves at fancy liberal dinner parties

Re: The Presidency of Donald J. Trump: Operation Desert Stormy

For Trump, Giuliani adds toughness, star power to legal team
For weeks, President Donald Trump had grown increasingly frustrated with the cable news chatter that he couldn’t hire a big-name attorney for his legal team.

But the president boasted to a confidant this week that he had struck a deal that he believed would silence those critics: He was hiring “America’s F---ing Mayor.”
russia's ****ing mayor must have been busy

Obviously I have no regrets and a 2+2 ban is a very small price to pay to ruin the safe space of some Trumpkins, but just warning in case some of you care.
happened to me several times in NVG and OOT

some people are just straight up pussies

afaik, missouri GOP were actually the ones who started the investigation and have been calling for his resignation (which he refuses)

potentially new felony charge(s) for him:

Quote:
Missouri Gov. Eric Greitens, already facing one felony charge for invasion of privacy, as well as allegations of sexual assault and blackmail, could potentially be charged with a separate felony for his campaign practices when he ran for office.

Greitens calls the suggestion of a new charge "ridiculous." He vigorously denies all allegations of criminal activity — consistently saying his only wrongdoing was a consensual affair — and has refused to resign, despite calls from state lawmakers.

The possibility of a new felony charge was raised by Missouri Attorney General Josh Hawley in a press conference on Tuesday. He alleges that Greitens took a list of donors to his military veterans charity, transferred it to his political campaign, and used it for political fundraising.

I think best case scenario is we get trump like [spoiler]Vic at the end of the shield [/spoiler]

effectively a huge nothingburger so far, but man you can tell how badly the forbes writer WANTS it to be a scandal of epic proportions

cliffs: DNC/schultz hired some IT people from pakistan who then stole some data off a server and allegedly ran off with a laptop and some money or something? read in a diff article somewhere that the accused IT guy (and some family members, iirc) was basically destitute and might have allegedly had some drug or gambling problems? idk, there's basically nothing to it of any real substance at this point, just a bunch of speculation/right wing fever dreams about TERRORISM and what not

I read this as "Cohen has his own independent business interests so any shady (shadey?) dealings he's caught doing have nothing to do with me." This is not necessarily wrong given Cohen's history (Russian mob, taxi business, etc.)

Never forget, Trump has the best words.

Edit: Maybe whoever wrote the tweet was thinking of "of his own accord" but doesn't know what that means either.
