If Trump hadn't run for prez, all these grifters could have continued on unnoticed as usual.

And that's the thing I just don't get.  The first grifter to flip, turn state's evidence, and fall in supplication at the feet of the media actually has a future.  Is the cult that strong?

Michael Cohen seems to be doing okay, and he's not in prison, which is a big plus.

When it comes to Bannon and crew, I see it more like mob loyalty than cultist behavior... But I mean, same difference if you wanna be pedantic about it.

This seems to be an inherent problem with an executive pardon for someone who is still presumed innocent.

Grifter steals from assholes. Meh.

Seeing this just reminded about all the shiatty pardons trump did and I'm pissed now.

Believe it when I see it.

Been a whole lot of talking, not a enough walking lately.

He seems like nice enough fellow.
The kind of guy you could have a couple beers with. Maybe some shots. A few bottles absinthe.

Witch hunt!  Fishing expedition!  The liberals just hate him, that's why they've been going after him for 5 years!  Liberals hate loyal patriots like Steve!

OK, that's out of the way.  fark that fat traitor.

Subby thinks investigations happen within a 1 hour period, like on TV.

A scam is a scam only if you get away with it. This is just a crime.

A guy that sweats pure pruno will do fine in the big house.

I'm still young enough to hide my aches and pains, but it's good to know that I could decide today to be an utter piece of shiat and continue to get away with it until I'm too old to care.

Does anyone really believe the FBI put the whole case out there? Knowing full well that Trump was going to p*** in their face? Of course not. "Ooops! We forgot this one thing - our bad"

This obviously means Trump is the greatest President in history because he has thwarted all of their evil goals.

Thank God for that man.

Why not? Who the fark is Steve Bannon that he can't end up sufferinge for this, the ex-president's ex-adviser? Roger Stone and Paul Manafort went to prison while Trump was president.

Put him though a legal grinder so harsh he'll think farking a hot light socket is less painful.

thanksagainandagain: Grifter steals from assholes. Meh.


you're looking at it wrong.

idiots who fell for scam screwed out of their money and won't get it back....win #1

idiots who ran the scam charged, have to deal with justice system, bleed money paying lawyers, and potentially go to jail....win #2

Farkers get to make fun of 2 sets of idiots....win #3

culebra: Roger Stone...went to prison while Trump was president.


He was pardoned before he had to report.
 
2021-02-24 7:27:39 PM  
I don't hope he faces mob consequences, but I would laugh.

Stone was sentenced, but he never reported. Trump commuted his sentence before he had to report and then pardoned him in December.

Did he steal from the rich?  No?  Ain't nothin' gonna happen.
 
2021-02-24 8:08:25 PM  
On none hand, yay, justice.

On the other hand, all the people he ripped off are assholes anyway.

So...  Whatever.

Why should Steve go to jail for a crime somebody else noticed?
 
2021-02-24 8:34:54 PM  
That guy looks worse in every picture than he did in the last. Impressive, when you think about it.
 
2021-02-24 8:37:11 PM  
I'm hoping the grifters who didn't get a pardon are pissed and ready to dish.

You sure he isn't more into Krokodil?

The pic from TFA...

Does this guy just forget he slept in his clothes the night before and just put on more clothes over the ones he wore yesterday?

The Trump's will be regretting things soon enough.
The Daily Beast: NY investigators are looking at Don Jr. in Trump biz probe

Cy Vance sat in on Cohen's interview the other day.

Also, NY AG interviewed Jr. February 11, asking specifics about very large inauguration funds landing in Trump's DC hotel coffers.
Regarding one specific payment, Jr. didn't hesitate to throw his college buddy under the bus
"I don't recall authorizing that $50,000 payment".
Huh, well according to him, he made the payment with your permission.
That doesn't bode well for anyone else involved.

NY's got mob sniffers on the trail now. I really don't think NY intends to let the Trump crime family continue it's life of pure bullshiat and crookery. And it does look like they're making progress sniffing their way through the mess all the way to the top. 

What's going on right now with the Trump-maze/inaugural funds mess, is looking very much like the family was grifting every which way they possibly could. They clearly ignored calls to rein the grift in. And Jr.'s interview only made them look even more guilty, and deliberately - yet stupidly - shady.
Ivanka was clearly involved.

Something's up though. Eric and Ivanka were both at Trump Tower in NY today.
Jr. too, is laying low somewhere in NY. I think the investigations now picking up steam have them spooked.
Honestly, it appears the family (especially the kids) are scrambling and somehow trying to get on the same page. Though with the messes they consistently make with money and everything else, I doubt that's possible for them to pull off.

What's both tragic and amusing is this: Dad Trump doesn't give a shiat. He'll blame his kids, and even Ivanka, for any "mismanagement".
"Oh I was busy being president. I wasn't involved in any of it".
He's already labeled Jr a complete idiot, so it's no stretch for Trump to say the idiot kid made a complete mess of everything and any laws that were broken or funds that were stolen were Jr.'s ideas and on his head be it completely.

Anyway, looks like Trump set his stupidly fawning kids up to take the blame for all the theft, mismanagement, and highly questionable "business deals" made while he was in office.


Dad: Lalala I'm headed off to my golf course, have fun in jail!
