The "hush agreement," as it's called in the suit

The presidential pet is a hushpuppy.

Bringing all the class a failed Atlantic City casino magnate could be expected to provide. Now tell me again how Trump is going to fight for traditional family values.

My favorite part about all of this is how Stormy, (I feel I can call her that, as she and I have been in an intimate, if one-sided relationship for over 20 years), is getting zero slut-shaming for being a porn star.  26 years ago Anita Hill, a farkING LAWYER FROM YALE, was dismissed as a spurned lover for challenging Clarence Thomas.  Now we have a porn star being paid illegal/laundered hush money by a President and the narrative is, "Yup, Donald cheating on his wife 10 months after giving birth with a blonde porn start who he compares to his daughter is pretty much par for the course."

The moral of the story is obviously, if Anita Hill wanted to be taken seriously, she should have gone to Harvard.

Eh, this will all just be a Stormy in a toupee. I mean a storm in a teacup.

It's brilliant really, Trump has to either fight the suit that he *did* really sign it, proving the whole story *and* copping to a felony. OR fight the suit that there was no NDA, freeing her to spill the excruciating/nauseating details and leaving all manner of questions about Cohen's unreimbursed $130k.
Remind me to save some popcorn for this one and how it plays out..

Not sure how well that argument is going to go.  She took the money, so claiming she isn't bound by her side is a tough sell.  Oh well, not my problem, and the schadenfreude is too good for me to care.  Trump's crap needs to be dragged into the light of day, full stop.

I'm just shocked to find that the one person with a decent lawyer in all of this is Stormy Daniels.

Oh good.

Depose him, and see when he lies. We already have the GOP on record as that being their red line for impeachment.
 
2018-03-07 12:38:37 AM  
I has a happy. She found a good lawyer before saying or doing anything.

Trump has a few legal options. He can ignore the lawsuit, which would result in summary judgement against him, allowing her to tell her story far and wide, or he can contest the lawsuit, thereby admitting to the world he did cheat on his wife, and he did arrange to pay for her silence.

Also, since Cohen seems to have requested arbitration a few days ago, this lawsuit will bring the discussion out of the very private arbitration forum into a very open court proceding. It may not make the pillars of democracy tremble, but she took her time, and crafted a beaufitul and effective way to get her story told.

I hope she makes a buttload of money from it.

/once she has the buttload, I wouldn't mind seeing it.

Cohen lost the whole thing when he started talking about it, and Trumpet didn't help with some of his utterances. One way or another you aren't going to enforce an NDA when you are yabbering about it and commenting on the other party left right and center. The coerced fake document thing is real bad for a lawyer too.

This is the simple way for it to be removed, but if this doesnt happen the complicated way will.
 
2018-03-07 12:43:05 AM  
this is a gotdamn mess for the GOP.  their own standard for impeachment - set during the Clinton years - is that sex scandals in the white house are impeachable offenses.  if the Republicans refuse to impeach Donny for banging a porn star, they admit openly to being a bunch of lying hypocritical bastards.  now, while the trumpers might think that's ok, I doubt the rest of the country is in the mood to tolerate the bullshiat at the moment.  sex scandal plus gun violence plus trade war plus 'president for life' plus Mueller investigation plus....well, you get the idea.

I dunno where the breaking point for all this is located....but I think we're getting close to it.  Trump's trade war idea is ultimately what's going to do him in.  Rich people like being rich and Donny is about to make a lot of them very poor.
 
2018-03-07 12:43:54 AM  
To me this sounds like a shakedown, that she wants more money to go away or she will make Trump give a deposition.

I am so glad that conservatives have such a strong and unwavering moral center, otherwise we might have ended up with a President that is susceptible to blackmail and extortion.

Actually, Donnie did write a check to Cohen, in order to finish the deal.

But Melania canceled the check before it got deposited.

The sex scandal did not happen IN the White House.

Plus you can count on the Trumpers to suddenly come out with the "who cares what two consenting adults do?" line.

Feel free to point out that they damn well have a cow what two consenting adults of the same sex do, AND that Trump was banging AT LEAST ONE PORN STAR WHILE MARRIED!

Colluding/conspiracy to cover up marital infidelity during the campaign with the hush money being an illegal in-kind contribution.  That's a federal felony for the hush money.

How much of that $130k did her lawyer talker get?

a detail that didn't matter during the Clinton impeachment hearings, and won't likely matter in Trump's trial either.

I fully expect the trumpers to split hairs, move goal posts, scream random bullshiat about Obama and Hillary and otherwise refuse to acknowledge Donny needs to be impeached, since he's a bad leader even by GOP standards....but lets be honest.  the Republicans are weak, and are not going to do the right thing unless forced to do so.

Yeah, that's struck me too. I think its a combination of things. In the #metoo era the media is primed to carry sympathetic stories about sexual misconduct from female perspectives, and the Parkland teens demonstrate that the traditional RW response to attacks from politically marginal voices doesn't work. Used to be you'd send out your guys to the media to trash 'em and that would be it; now they can fire back instantly on Twitter and grab counter-headlines minutes after your attack. Credit Trump himself for bringing an established weapon of celebrity beefs to mainstream politics, I guess.

They're idiots in Trumpville, but they do at least understand how to deal with sex scandals, having forty-plus years of learning how to keep various victims and mistresses quiet. You don't keep them quiet by doing anything that might give them even more attention, and you especially don't do that when they have just as much ability to write their own headlines as you do.

The Stormy sex scandal can be just for the poors then. I saw a tweet, but no more detail than that, there they may be a dress. I look forward tom Paul and Mitch explaining why this dress is different and no big deal.
