mrshowrules: WayneKerr: kkinnison: Im an idiot. What tapes?

We do not know. Probably something about moving on them like biatches, specific biatches and maybe something about a pool party and a nude Dick Cheney.

That's always looked more like a concealed colostomy bag than his junk to me, unless you actually believe that Dick Cheney has a 2 liter coke bottle for a penis.

In Spanish, Los Bastardos means "Those bastards".  The Italian phrase means the same thing.  For Twitter character limitations, he uses the abbreviated version.

Stibium: 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....


That would just beat all.  And be typical of these fools.

thismomentinblackhistory: 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?


Seth Rich conspiracies seem to have died down, but there are still a couple of well-known trolls  drewgs  morons Fark Independents spouting off about how this is all going to blow back on Hillary, Obama, the Deep State, the Nights Templar, the Illuminati and the International Zionist Conspiracy.

quiotu: ArkPanda: MLWS: the_innkeeper: Mueller 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.


I think you're right.  Mueller is going to arrest absolutely everybody else and leave Trump and Pence alone in the White House like Saruman and Wormtongue trapped in Orthanc.

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.

Except they're not, and that's an unrelated, equally damning story about jr.

Nice try at deflecting. I guess.

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.


True. If you check avennati's twitter feed, he posted a short clip of his press release regarding. There are tapes Cohen made that "directly relate" to Stormy's case.

"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 rumors I've heard are that he refuses to go down, claims it's "icky".

OK, I can't hear that farking audio for shiat. Does he say what's supposed to be in the tapes? Are they sex tapes, conspiracy tapes, recordings of him talking to Cohen about Stormy Daniels, or does he not actually say? But whatever they are, they've been entered into evidence, so they're something at least...

Barricaded Gunman: 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.


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.

If you believe the system can work keeping a bomb thrower out is a good thing. I know that the assumption the system still works is waining for some but I still believe in it.

thismomentinblackhistory: 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?


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!
