    Has nothing to do with the affair, like Gary Hart. Has everything to do with the: 1) source and 2) purpose of the payments. I honestly don't think his fidelity plays any role in his ability to govern. Some excellent presidents were serial adulterers. But that's not the issue here.

    ^Ahhh brilliant legal defense! Murder suspect on trial: "You're honor, what about OJ?" Judge: "Oh wow, he's right. *SLAMS GAVEL* Not Guilty!"

    Overheard at Einstein Bagels at 130th and Pearl yesterday morning: Elderly man: "I think he's probably finally in enough trouble that it might stick to him, but I hope not." I assume his wife: "I don't think so. He'll be okay." Elderly man: "I just hope he's able to think of a story that gets him out of all of this."

    Nope, but we would need some losses next week and then the Titants/Colts game Week 17 to end in a tie....

    Read through Butina's documents. Certainly doesn't seem like this thing is "winding down." Quite the opposite.

    This is why it was not only in the country’s but the presidents best interest for him to have just abided by the Emoluments Clause
  8. I work upstairs, there was another restaurant operating in there today, but I didn't have time to stop down and learn more. I'll keep everyone posted.

    No. Not at all. Because there would be no suggestion of a necessary mens rea. Don... I know you believe in him man, but at what point will you say AT LEAST, "Okay, this isn't good for the President. He shouldn't have been paying hush money to mistresses." As a time saving measure in anticipation of any response you may offer, let's just start with the baseline assumption that I'm aware Bill Clinton did bad things in office, that Barack Obama and Hillary dropped the ball in Benghazi, that the Left is waging a war on Christmas, and that political correctness is crippling freedom of expression.

    I don't believe he was under oath when submitting the written questions, anyways. So perjury wouldn't be in play, it would be the "Lying to a Federal Official" charge they hit Manafort and Popadopolous with. And at this point, Don, to make an argument that the President is not implicated, at the very least least through court pleadings, in any felonies is to make an argument devoid of fact and logic. Again, not saying he's guilty - because I have no clue if he is or isn't. But to say he isn't implicated in this is being willfully blind.

    Wow. Mueller baited him. Trump has already given statements to the contrary and Giuliani hinted that this was the subject matter of some of the written questions.

    In all seriousness, in regular prosecutions, Federal felony conspiracies are broken from the bottom up. Smaller players acting at the direction of larger players are usually sentenced first, with a reduction for cooperation. The defendant who coordinated and instructed the felonies typically gets a heavier sentence. Individual 1 is purported to be the coordinator of this conspiracy, per SDNY

    I know it's fun for the liberals on here to react to, but I hope everyone appreciates the gravity of this. In 2019, there is a strong chance that there will be a trial for impeachment before the Senate with a President who could potentially encourage uprising in the course of that. It's not really funny, actually, it's terrifying. I long withheld judgment regarding the President's involvement in illegal activities and always assumed Manafort, Flynn, and perhaps DJT2 would go down. But I really didn't believe the President would be directly implicated in multiple felonies. It's not really a time for laughter or schadenfreude, it's not a time for retaliatory politics from the Democrats, it's a time to make sure our nation comes out of the other end of this intact.

    Back channeling isn't unusual within administrations. Leveraging your own country's institutions as a result of that back channeling is, however.
  15. NICEEEE teaser for the article. Well played.
