Blackmail or witness intimidation?

Either way, it totally exonerates the President. Thank you!

Ooh, I would LOVE for this shiatstain to go down for witness intimidation!

Scuttlebutt I heard is, he'll go down for a couple drinks, if that's your thing.

Thing is, this is the type of thing one does if they're running scared. A person confident that he's done the right thing would have no problem with the sunlight shining on the process.
 
2019-02-26 04:39:45 PM  
Popehat just told him he should probably lawyer up.

How about you drive into a tree Matt?

Both.
 
2019-02-26 04:48:08 PM  
This is a congressman?  What a shiatty country we live in.
 
2019-02-26 04:48:08 PM  
He's shiating himself right now in an emergency meeting over whether or not it's better to delete the tweet or leave it.

Yeah, there are a lot of well versed law types on there, and they are fun to follow for just such instances.
This tweet will be deleted very shortly, but that doesn't change shiat.
Dude is going to get arrested on this.
 
2019-02-26 04:49:17 PM  
Jam his ass in county for witness tampering and intimidation.
 
2019-02-26 04:50:05 PM  
Holy shiat it's ONLY Tuesday.
 
2019-02-26 04:50:21 PM  
None of that mattered when he was the RNC finance chair less than a year ago.

Unrelated, but apparently Jacob Wohl got himself suspended from Twitter. Unfortunately, I don't know what did it.

Speaking of Twitter, BREAKING:

Twitter has permanently banned Jacob Wohl for creating fake accounts, hours after he openly bragged about creating fake accounts.

He bragged to USA Today about all the ways he was breaking Twitter's rules -- creating fake profiles, etc. -- in order to manipulate the 2020 election.

Ah, thanks for the explanation! Also, wow, openly bragging about violating the TOS. That's so Jacob.

Beat me to it.

Pelosi should refer his ass to DOJ like tomorrow right before the hearing.

Mmm. FEAR.
 
2019-02-26 04:53:11 PM  
Wouldn't it be great if he misses his opportunity to grill Cohen because he gets locked up for the night?

All the brilliance we have come to expect from a Wohl.

He's gonna steal Cohen's girl?

We should be so lucky.

First of all, extortion only works BEFORE you reveal damning information. Secondly, welcome to witness tampering, your indictment is being prepared.

It's funny because he has been arrested for DUI.

To be fair, he's really farking dumb.

Maybe the stress will be too much for him. The stress he brought upon himself.

He told USA farking Today that he was going to use social media accounts to spread infighting in the feminist movement.  That article came out about 3 hours ago.

Obstruction of justice either way.

His Wikipedia page now features this entry:

Part-Time Job[edit]
Sometime during 2019, Gaetz decided to do some federal witness tampering and blackmail on the side -- mistakenly believing, perhaps, that this is not a jailable criminal offense.
 
2019-02-26 04:55:26 PM  
Funny thing is, he essentially blew his wad already (if he's telling the truth, that is [har har]). I mean, this is much more direct and revealing than a "blackmail" statement should be. It's supposed to be subtle enough that only the target fully understands and that those in his immediately vicinity would start asking questions about. "He pointedly questioned your faithfulness and fidelity, but it kind of sounded like he was talking about marriage as opposed to his business dealings... Hm...."

Instead, he pretty much said "U r a cheeter, LULZ", really leaving nothing to threaten Cohen with if he doesn't play ball. It reminds me of this scene from Friends:

Ross Believes Everything The Zoo Tells Him - Friends S02E12
Youtube bq73wTfwX0c


Ross: Are you trying to get me to bribe you?
Custodian: Maybe...
Ross: But... you already told me everything.
Custodian: .................

The Tweet will be deleted, but I bet the account remains.

Because apparently, Twitter is absolutely okily dokily with people using it as a platform to commit crimes.

it's even funnier because his dad got him off the charge.  and then there's his mysteriously suicided roommate...
