No, I painted little faces on Trump's balls, and at night, before Ivanka comes in to sing her daddy lullabies composed by Ted Nugent, I perform a little play with Trump nuts. If I do a good job, the turtle pokes his little head out to say "hi".

He claims that he heard via a reporter that Cohen had played them a copy of conversations between Cohen himself and Davidson coordinating to the benefit of Donald Trump that he claims is part of the documents obtained by SDNY.

He's trying to claim there is a public need to hear them but I don't think Judge Wood will truck with that considering how it might bias a jury in a potential pending criminal case to have that public beforehand.

There's the literal meaning of "basta," which is "enough!" or "stop it!" but Michael Avenatti uses it more like "he's over" or "he's done for" with a bit of "drop the mic" and "I'm Audi 5000."

Judge Kimba Wood told him straight out this morning that if he wants to be party to this criminal case he needs to stop commenting on the case in the media. Guess this is his answer.

How would he have been a party to that case anyway?


Here is the discussion per Adam Klasfeld's.

And I was wrong: he's alleging that Cohen has shown journalists recordings of Davidson talking to Daniels and he feels that should be released to him/through public.

ArkPanda: MLWS: the_innkeeper: Mueller is working.
SDNY is working.
EDVA is working.

I just wish they would work faster...

The way I see it this just indicates the scope, breadth and depth of Trumps corruption and incompetence that it is taking this long to compile everything.

Also, if you take a shot at the Devil you better not miss. Mueller is making sure he's got every I dotted and T crossed.

I expect when he's ready he will unveil something  diametrically opposite to what this Administration has been. A cogent cohesive organized investigation so airtight it's downright anoxic.

I used to think this. A billionaire president would be defended by the finest legal minds in private practice. But after seeing the Dream Team in action, I think Mueller could have phoned it in and gone to Disney world months ago.


I think it's less about getting the President. The president is already ludicrously unpopular, and the information given in the investigation will only further that. Trump really can't go anywhere, so I'm pretty sure the point of Mueller's work is to take out everyone around Trump that helped, profited, and lied about the corruption happening before, during and after the elections. Mueller will merely throw every piece of evidence at Congress, arrest everyone he can excluding the President and go 'well, I did my work... your turn'.

Impeached or not, the credibility of the President will be gone regardless. Those that went along with the facade and were paid for it will be gone anyway. I'm predicting that by the time they arrest everyone they can, from the US and abroad, we will probably be in the several hundreds by the time the investigation is over. Either they're getting arrested, or someone's killing them before they can be indicted and pushed into selling out even more folks.

"Enough". I guess it's something that Italians say before they completely ruin someone's shiat.


I'm married to an Italian. When he or anyone in his immediate family is over someone's behavior or wishes to end dialogue they calmly and quietly say, "enough". If you continue past this point all hell does break loose and the loud talking turns into actual shouting. I find it to be farking hilarious, but I'm never on the receiving end of "enough".

Are these the tapes from that garage band President Tittybaby was in when he was at military school? They covered all the latest hits then, like "I Get Around," "A World Without Love," "White on White,"  "Can't Buy Me Love," "Do You Want to Know a Secret" and "Money (That's What I Want)."

A peek into the future president's mindset.

We can thank Ken Starr for that. He got the precedent that a president can be sued in civil court while in office. The FBI and DOJ have to follow US Code and any other precedent set there.

I'm not too sure. I think in a lot of ways it's more pressure and harder for him to discount politically as Mueller.

I still think Trump has more chance of being forced to resign than over impeachment.

My bet would be the hinted at Apprentice tapes where he might have used the N-word.  It might have been the same tape, but there was also the story recently that TMZ tipped off Trump to a potentially harmful tape that was then quickly bought up and buried.  These sound more likely to be relevant to the Stormy Daniels case because of the catch and kill angle of it.

Either way, it's a hell of a world we live in that a link to a recently released tape of the President is legitimately a risky click.

He's trying to claim there is a public need to hear them but I don't think Judge Wood will truck with that considering how it might bias a jury in a potential pending criminal case to have that public beforehand.


Ugh. So this perspective jury will be just like American voters in 2016, making an important decision despite having crucial information intentionally withheld from them in order to protect the rights of the biggest asshole in American political history?

My bet would be the hinted at Apprentice tapes where he might have used the N-word.  It might have been the same tape, but there was also the story recently that TMZ tipped off Trump to a potentially harmful tape that was then quickly bought up and buried.  These sound more likely to be relevant to the Stormy Daniels case because of the catch and kill angle of it.

Either way, it's a hell of a world we live in that a link to a recently released tape of the President is legitimately a risky click.

Someone did raise the possibility that the Russians may have given Cohen a copy of the peeper tape when he went to Prague, and that Cohen would have kept it somewhere safe. Like in a bank lock box....

"Enough". I guess it's something that Italians say before they completely ruin someone's shiat.

I'm married to an Italian. When he or anyone in his immediate family is over someone's behavior or wishes to end dialogue they calmly and quietly say, "enough". If you continue past this point all hell does break loose and the loud talking turns into actual shouting. I find it to be farking hilarious, but I'm never on the receiving end of "enough".

I've used it and heard it used numerous times, but usually in the context of eating and being full.   Basta = no more "food".

I've heard it used for being full only a couple of times and that was in the older generations.

Side note: I don't know what Avanatti did to be thrown out of his house last Christmas, but I wonder how many time his future ex-wife screamed that word at him while throwing him out on his gorgeous behind.

Well....i think of it this way:  there will always be somebody sick of his shiat.  So......unless he was a real piece of shiat, I'll give him the benefit of the doubt.

The way I see it this just indicates the scope, breadth and depth of Trumps corruption and incompetence that it is taking this long to compile everything.

Also, if you take a shot at the Devil you better not miss. Mueller is making sure he's got every I dotted and T crossed.

I expect when he's ready he will unveil something  diametrically opposite to what this Administration has been. A cogent cohesive organized investigation so airtight it's downright anoxic.

I used to think this. A billionaire president would be defended by the finest legal minds in private practice. But after seeing the Dream Team in action, I think Mueller could have phoned it in and gone to Disney world months ago.

I think it's less about getting the President. The president is already ludicrously unpopular, and the information given in the investigation will only further that. Trump really can't go anywhere, so I'm pretty sure the point of Mueller's work is to take out everyone around Trump that helped, profited, and lied about the corruption happening before, during and after the elections. Mueller will merely throw every piece of evidence at Congress, arrest everyone he can excluding the President and go 'well, I did my work... your turn'.

Impeached or not, the credibility of the President will be gone regardless. Those that went along with the facade and were paid for it will be gone anyway. I'm predicting that by the time they arrest everyone they can, from the US and abroad, we will probably be in the several hundreds by the time the investigation is over. Either they're getting arrested, or someone's killing them before they can be indicted and pushed into selling out even more folks.

OK, I can't hear that farking audio for shiat. Does he say what's supposed to be in the tapes?

He claims that he heard via a reporter that Cohen had played them a copy of conversations between Cohen himself and Davidson coordinating to the benefit of Donald Trump that he claims is part of the documents obtained by SDNY.

He's trying to claim there is a public need to hear them but I don't think Judge Wood will truck with that considering how it might bias a jury in a potential pending criminal case to have that public beforehand.

Ugh. So this perspective jury will be just like American voters in 2016, making an important decision despite having crucial information intentionally withheld from them in order to protect the rights of the biggest asshole in American political history?

Awesome.


I mean they will be available to a jury if deemed relevant, it's just Avenatti has been airing every smidge of evidence that is damning for Cohen and Trump so trusting him to be a party to this investigation because evidence gathered may be of interest to his client's civil litigation seems a bit reckless.

Oh yea. Seth Rich is hugggeee. Assange is really trustworthy and he offered a 20,000 reward for information (just a staggering amount of money!) on information so all signs point to the Clintons because there's no way a person who was so drunk they couldn't find their way home from a bar they frequented in two hours despite being less than two miles away could have had anything else happen to them in a recently robbery stricken neighborhood.

And nothing of his was taken! Because after you shoot someone it is totally inconceivable that you wouldn't want the deadmans wallet on you, I mean there's just so many other people around at 4:30, tons of other suspects. And definitely no one ever panics and flees the scene of the murder.

She told me there were two types of liberals, the ones who are hysterical Trump won, and the ones who believe he won fair and square and trust in Kim Dot Com and Julian Assange.

I mean, I'm laughing as I type this. I wish I could make it up.

And everyone's a part of some big club apparently? Hillary, the Bushes, the deep state, the msm. And for some reason that's why Trump's investigation was hidden from the public while Hilary's was brought back into the foreground twelve days before the election and covered exhaustingly by the press. Because they're all in the club and Hillary forgot to flush that weekend! Gross.

It was... pretty unbelievable. The part about trusting Kim Dot Com. Just cracks me up. What the fark. Millions of Americans are in a club! I trust Kim Dot Com!

Side note: I don't know what Avanatti did to be thrown out of his house last Christmas, but I wonder how many time his future ex-wife screamed that word at him while throwing him out on his gorgeous behind.

Well....i think of it this way:  there will always be somebody sick of his shiat.  So......unless he was a real piece of shiat, I'll give him the benefit of the doubt.


I think the guy is just always "on". He's always intensely focused on something, and that leads to friction in any sort of relationship.

Stibium: davideggy: Boeheimian Rhapsody: kkinnison: Im an idiot. What tapes?

tapes picked up in the Cohen raid.

Unfortunately (fortunately?) I doubt it's the infamous pee-tape.  That probably only exists in the realm of intelligence agencies if it actually exists, although the lawyer having a copy of the blackmail material wouldn't be that odd.

My bet would be the hinted at Apprentice tapes where he might have used the N-word.  It might have been the same tape, but there was also the story recently that TMZ tipped off Trump to a potentially harmful tape that was then quickly bought up and buried.  These sound more likely to be relevant to the Stormy Daniels case because of the catch and kill angle of it.

Either way, it's a hell of a world we live in that a link to a recently released tape of the President is legitimately a risky click.

Someone did raise the possibility that the Russians may have given Cohen a copy of the peeper tape when he went to Prague, and that Cohen would have kept it somewhere safe. Like in a bank lock box....

Proof that it existed and of what it contained, so they'd know how bad it would be if it came out.

Personally, barring obviously underaged hookers in it, I think the pee tape at this point would just be a distraction from the true illegal things the whole campaign and his people were & are up to. If it exists, which it may.  It can't be nearly as treasonous as the bank records and recorded conversations, though.

They should all die in prison.

Last time I read about this, Avenatti had filed to be granted permission as a "visiting attorney" (forgot the latin phrase).
Does anyone know if that was granted before he changed his mind? Just curious at what pace this is proceeding.

2018-05-30 3:35:46 PM  
My guess is -- Avenatti manages to trigger President Leroy Jenkins in insane ways -- and he knows he's more effective...for his client, and likely the country in general, if he can go on TV and appeal to PLJ's inability to keep his damned mouth shut (and, Avenatti going on TV keeps his case from getting buried.)

Avenatti knows he's more effective needling his target out of the courtroom than anything he could find in said courtroom.

ValisIV: GreatGlavinsGhost: Stibium: davideggy: Boeheimian Rhapsody: kkinnison: Im an idiot. What tapes?

tapes picked up in the Cohen raid.

Unfortunately (fortunately?) I doubt it's the infamous pee-tape.  That probably only exists in the realm of intelligence agencies if it actually exists, although the lawyer having a copy of the blackmail material wouldn't be that odd.

My bet would be the hinted at Apprentice tapes where he might have used the N-word.  It might have been the same tape, but there was also the story recently that TMZ tipped off Trump to a potentially harmful tape that was then quickly bought up and buried.  These sound more likely to be relevant to the Stormy Daniels case because of the catch and kill angle of it.

Either way, it's a hell of a world we live in that a link to a recently released tape of the President is legitimately a risky click.

Someone did raise the possibility that the Russians may have given Cohen a copy of the peeper tape when he went to Prague, and that Cohen would have kept it somewhere safe. Like in a bank lock box....

Why would the Russians Putin give Cohen a copy of The Pee Tape.

Proof that it existed and of what it contained, so they'd know how bad it would be if it came out.

Personally, barring obviously underaged hookers in it, I think the pee tape at this point would just be a distraction from the true illegal things the whole campaign and his people were & are up to. If it exists, which it may.  It can't be nearly as treasonous as the bank records and recorded conversations, though.

They should all die in prison.


The GOP is hoping that by the time the election comes around, no one will be interested in any of the money-power scandals because everyone will be tired from all the Simple Donny Sex Scandal Fatigue.
 
2018-05-30 4:48:31 PM  
The tape appears to have 3 people: Cohen, Trump, and Stormy's old lawyer.  I assume, then, it's proof Trump lied about whether he knew about the $130,000?  And I have to believe that lawyer is getting disbarred, right?  Dude clearly did not have his clients' best interests in mind (and that's for both Stormy and Karen McDougal)
 
2018-05-30 5:04:54 PM  
I should have worn my white pants!

In all seriousness though, are these the tapes they wanted to prove he disparaged women on the apprentice? How is there going to be anything in there worse than "moved on her like a biatch" and "grab them by the pussy" which he got elected in spite of?

No my interpretation of it is that these are tapes showing that Trump knew all the details about the payoff, the NDA, the whats/whens/how/whys of what happened between Cohen and Stormy's people, and probably authorized a couple things himself. In other words, the tapes that prove what everyone already knows which is that Trump knew everything that was going on, instead of his insistence that he knew nothing (which is his hamfisted way of trying to throw Cohen under the bus for everything)

I admit I haven't been following things too closely - but close enough to make that guess. Anyone else want to break it down and ELI5 in case I'm wrong?

So, from what I can find online from legitimate sources the IG report is likely to critical of the FBI investigation into Clinton's emails. Not sure how a report saying that Hillary got a raw deal is going to "put her in the hot seat" or benefit God-Emperor Twitler, but you be you.

Two things are well established:

B) Cohen is a pretty shiatty lawyer.

that's something i don't understand. reports say avenatti calling on cohen to release the tapes. why would cohen have a say in the matter if tapes were disclosed in court. wouldn't it seem the courts would have the say?


If the tapes in question end up being used as evidence, or in defense, then they could/would become a matter of the public record.  But that doesn't mean that they can't encourage Cohen to release whatever it is anyway.
