Emposter: Oh for farks sake, they're not Trump tapes.  They're tapes of a Russian dude who later (but not on the tapes) talked to Half Scoop.

It's not that they shouldn't be released, or that they're not important.  The problem is that when you say you have Trump tapes, you get me all excited and then I find out what you actually have and now I'm just disappointed.


So submitter owes you an apology for the half chub?

PunGent: DijitalDharma: Here we go, babes! Keep hands and ladyboners inside the treason ride at all times.

Well, I'm kinda torn.  

I mean, Trump's gotta go, obviously.  But if that means we've got to actually see him naked...even accidentally clicking on the video once it's out there...decisions, decisions.

In a way it's horrible how Avenatti looks like he might take down Trump over Mueller.

That in our society the actual real checks and balances aren't good enough... That it needs a lose cannon like Avenatti  to do it.

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. 

Avanetti can kinda drive his own schedule here.

No no, the lose cannon is the cannon that we fire Trump out of after he's escorted from the White House.

DijitalDharma: tommyl66: The tapes he is referring to are old VHS tapes that show Trump used to regularly record Dharma and Greg. That alone is enough to have him locked up for two or three decades.

He should have digitized them.

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.

For a good time, visit the Fark thread when the investigation was announced.

I wonder how many of the mouth breathers defending Trump are still waiting for Mueller to take a look at Seth Rich? Are they still convinced this will boomerang to Crooked Hillary?

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.

LarryDan43: ValisIV: kkinnison: Im an idiot. What tapes?

They are tapes Cohen made of his conversations with David Dennison and various porn stars David had sex with.

WayneKerr: 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". We then discuss foreign policy, which mostly includes the First Lady and Putin in the threesome with Richard Simmons for some reason.


Time to put down the ambien, Wayne.

the_innkeeper: When feds raised Cohen's office he was in the middle of shredding documents related to Trump. Yeah, lawyers destroy documents of their clients dealing when it's legit all the time.

Good times...


I read on twitter that the feds have technology that helps reassemble shredded docs.

Farkers can be really elite assholes sometimes.  They don't like to let people what shiat means and use it as a way exclude people.  I don't even bother asking anymore.

raerae1980: Unikitty: Riothamus: NeedlesslyCanadian: Someone fill me in: what the hell does "basta" mean?

"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.

Grungehamster: Karac: What's supposed to be on these 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.

They said the tapes just disclosed.  The only tapes just disclosed that I'm aware of are the ones from Spain.  If these are new tapes, then the linked tweet does a pathetic job explaining that and this is a perfect example of why Fark should link to actual articles, not Twitter nonsense.

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....

...and the American electorate (or a sizable enough number of them) will completely forget about this (or simply not care) in the 2+ years before Election Day 2020.  Trump will end up with 47% +/- of the vote, Unnamed Democrat will probably end up with 47% +/- of the vote, and it'll all boil down to bizarre electoral math results.
