Yes, well...we knew this quite awhile ago when the foreign companies started coming clean they had paid him to 'consult.'

And we knew the money went into the same account because they told us he was that lazy.

Trump may make it as President until 20 January 2021. But he's toast after that.

/673 days and counting ...

The FBI says that Cohen opened his Essential Consultants account at First Republic before the month before the 2016 presidential election.

So... September, then?

Guys, I'm beginning to suspect that both Donald Trump and the people he associates with are compromised.

German police raided Deutche Bank back before Christmas.

There's a reason an entity who is supposed to be a responsible lender has been shoveling money towards Trump for YEARS despite him lying about his worth and defaulting on existing loans.

It's Putin's laundromat. And it aint just Trump they've (he's) been paying.

Is fake news, comrade. Cohen only made lies after he turn on Great President Trump. Before he was A-1 honest man who never take rubles from shady character. Is Democrat plot to undermine leader.

You think the American people would allow a con artist into the White House? These are dedicated, erudite scholars, capable of seeing through cheap showmanship.

How many times has he testified to congress?  If he had bank records showing Putin (or anybody else scandalous) depositing money into an account, we'd know already

As has been said before, if Cohen hadn't gotten popped, he'd still be doing the same things today, lying all the way. The only reason he "came clean" (as clean as he knows how to be), is because Donny showed him the bus axles. There is WAY more that hasn't been said, publicly, at least.

I am 100% positive that Mueller has details on every deposit. Just because "we" (the public) don't, doesn't mean squat. First Republic likely couldn't turn over information and docs fast enough.

What if I told you Jared Kushner was seeking a back-channel to Moscow in the early days of the administration and not only was he not arrested immediately, he's still traipsing around on behalf of his Administration doing God knows what?

hugram: These fraudulent loans and shady deals have created a ton of US coal jobs.


To calculate how many jobs that is we need a unit of conversion, in this case via Tennessee Ernie Ford where by we know that if you load 16 tons you get another day older (and deeper in debt).

Thus, 1 ton of coal jobs turns out of be 1 ton / (16 tons/day) or 1/16th of a day for a manly coal miner (one fist of iron, the other of steel). So basically you're saying that Trump has provided work for 1 coal miner for 1/2 of an hour (1/16th of an 8 hour day).

Personally, I think you are giving him too much credit but I'll accept it as an upper limit.

\ there's always math

If by a "ton of jobs" you mean 5 four hundred pound miners, then yeah, a ton of jobs.
 
2019-03-19 08:05:39 PM  
As Cohen testified in the last month, yeah, he got payments from foreign companies. The claim that the Republicans who want to say Cohen is completely unreliable and thus should be ignored is that the companies are entities controlled by other governments, which indicate that he was an agent of foreign powers. Therefore, everything he has ever said and done should be stricken from the record, especially anything that discusses how Trump skirted the law and/or broke it. Never mind that he was complicit in campaign finance fraud with Trump and his chief accountant writing him personal checks for the hush money. Nothing to see here, folks.

Please.

I wonder if some of this money is some side effect of "the rich" storing their money offshore and then bringing it back into the country illegally?

I was telling my son today how the February jobs report was really below expectations and that in the next 18-24 mos. we're going to continue to bleed them. Trump and the GOP controlled senate are going to tank the economy to guarantee a complete mess, just like GWB's administration did. This has been the norm since Reagan.

Trump's economy is living off of what Obama started.

I've always figured around 3-4 years or so after a POTUS change is when you can seriously judge at the new guys economic policy. That's under normal circumstances.

Tariffs, threatening businesses, and everything else Trump has done may accelerate that time frame for him.

We knew because the banks literally told us and Cohen did not deny it.

Anyone breathlessly excited about evidence being found of undisputed facts needs to calm the F down. This is back of the paper, next to the obits, news.

Presumption is going to be that the money went in for the same purpose the other money went in. To pay Cheetolini's bribes. Anything else is weak excuse-making that is going to have a very hard time getting past scrutiny let alone a court.
