    Well...there goes any hope that Eric Schneiderman will be able to bring charges against the crime family. Ronan Farrow just published his latest piece accusing Schneiderman of assaulting 4 women. He and Trump are both sexual predators.

    “I am the law.” Four women accuse NY attorney general and #MeToo advocate Eric Schneiderman of violent physical abuse. Several gave harrowing accounts of violence, fear, and intimidation to @JaneMayerNYer and I in our @NewYorker investigation: https://t.co/JCkFKf9lvR

    LOL!

    One of the minor alterations was the removal of this section:
    "Tell your kids to talk to you about bullying, too. Askyour kids to let you know if an online message or imagemakes them feel threatened or hurt."

    Great work on the cyber-bullying campaign Melamine!

    Shouldn't it be, "Be Your Best" instead of a phrase that sounds like it's missing another word?

    Within an hour of First Lady Melania Trump saying that children deserve every opportunity to enjoy their innocence, Jeff Sessions announced that it is the official policy of the U.S. to rip children out of the arms of their parents and lock them up. https://t.co/K9OKnesEGk

    Ronan Farrow writes scathing stories on Weinstein, Schneidermann - they resign/are ousted. Can he do one on Trump?

    Rudy Giuliani tells CBS that Robert Mueller's office has rejected proposals to allow Trump to answer questions from investigators in writing in lieu of a sit-down interview. https://t.co/ckOhKfgBwG

    The Black Cube report on Ben Rhodes for Iran Deal opponents “contains pictures of his apartment in Washington, telephone numbers and email addresses of members of his family, as well as unsubstantiated allegations of personal and ethical transgressions.” https://t.co/vEeKlfw6oC

    If Trump has done this on Obama officials, he's done it on Republican members of Congress. It might explain why people like @LindseyGrahamSC and other Russia-hardliners have done a 180 turn on foreign policy issues they used to care about.

    Agreed. We also have as evidence Trump's recent statements on John Tester: "I know things about Tester that would cause him to lose an election". More than one person in Congress is very likely being blackmailed by Trump's foreign or domestic surveillance ops.

    Barbara Underwood will take over for Schniederman. She has served as Solicitor General since 2007, was a law clerk for Supreme Court Justice Thurgood Marshall and has argued 20 cases before the Supreme Court. Her reputation is she's brilliant and tough.

    LOL he could try.

    Of course Team Trump is in full twitter mood about Schneiderman... ,

    ‘Gotcha,’ tweets Kellyanne Conway as Trump supporters revel in Schneiderman resignation

    “Gotcha,” Kellyanne Conway wrote in response.

    “You were saying???” Trump Jr. wrote in response.
    The president’s son continued to lash out at Schneiderman on Twitter throughout the evening. He shared a tweet from last month in which Schneiderman congratulated the New Yorker and the New York Times for their Pulitzer Prize-winning reporting of the Harvey Weinstein scandal and “the brave women and men who spoke up about the sexual harassment they endured at the hands of powerful men.”
    “Self awareness level: 0,” Trump Jr. tweeted. “Or substantially less than that.”
    Echoing his father’s tweets about Schneiderman from previous years, Trump Jr. mocked the attorney general’s “excessive use of eyeliner.”

    That was fast. I figured he would hold out for a solid 6 or 7 hours.

    He posted a tweet from the attorney general last September in which Schneiderman wrote: “Sexual assault survivors, what happened to you is unconscionable. We have your back and we are fighting for you.”
    “This didn’t age well,” Trump Jr. wrote. Dana Loesch, the NRA’s spokeswoman, also shared the tweet, saying, “Literally fighting women is not the same as fighting FOR women”

    Several Trump supporters posted photographs on social media of Schneiderman with Hillary Clinton, while some right-wing media outlets highlighted the cooperation between Schneiderman’s office and special counsel Robert S. Mueller III. (The attorney general’s office helped Mueller’s team investigate Paul Manafort and his financial transactions last August.)

    What was did Mueller know about his partners Eric Schneiderman, and what is he covering up?

    Rapes?

    Pedophilia?

    It's time for Mueller to answer some questions.https://www.vanityfair.com/news/2017/08/trump-robert-mueller-eric-schneiderman …

    Make sure you read the comments that follow the story. A lot of interesting information, speculation and back story in there.

    You were right, there was some info in the comments that read like inside info.



    53 minutes ago


    Paul did a great article but he is missing several key parts of that story:


    Consider this:

    Broidy and Nader met several times with Trump in secret meetings to discuss a multi-million dollar private security deal with Trump.

    Broidy needed some leverage to get those deals made and what better leverage than Trump having an affair that resulted in an abortion.

    Nader has now been given full immunity and he had to have something huge to get that from Mueller and a blackmail scam being perpetrated by Broidy to get Trump to conspire with a foreign government to get private security deals would certainly fit that nicely.

    Now to add to that Nader, Broidy and Tom Barrack were also involved in getting the Saudi nuclear power plants approved that would need Trump to sign off on in direct conflict with congress and Barrack has also been interviewed by Mueller.

    It looks like these 3 working with Cohen decided to double cross Trump and use the abortion scandal to blackmail Trump to get deals they wanted in Saudi and if you keep digging you will find that Kushner was making the rounds all over the ME at the time trying to get loans to save his businesses and he met with the price of Qatar, Saudi and may have gotten 2 loans from Israel banks under US sanctions.

    Why did Saudi suddenly become partners with Israel to try and get Palestinians to accept a land deal and give up their claim to the west bank?

    Saudi and Netanyahu want the Iran deal ended and Netanyahu wanted the embassy moved to help him get reelected and and Nader was neck deep in all those deals and now Netanyahu under investigation for bribery.

    Why did Broidy immediately jump out to take the hit for the bunny abortion affair when that voided the NDA and if true could end his marriage and would certainly end his job as finance chairman for the RNC?

    Simple answer is he was less worried about any of that than the blackmail and conspiracy with a foreign government that could get him many years in prison.

    Summary: All of these deals tie back to Nader that is now cooperating with Mueller and Broidy jumped out to take the fall for the abortion affair to cover for Trump but also hide the blackmail scheme that would take them all down including Trump that used his office to press for these deals. Trump needed protection from an abortion scandal that would end his presidency and Kushner needed money to save his businesses so they all got something.

    Assume Peter Stris is now representing McDougal and Bechard because they needed an attorney to manage a deposition. One which focused on a currently active investigation of foreign payments from U.A.E. to the Trump Campaign via Broidy. During the investigation a number payments to these women where found with Bechards falling into 2017 and actively being paid. Bechards tells the truth, it is was Trump she was involved with. Investigators at which point have her gaged and transfer the case outside to the NYDA office. This means the agreement to take the fall by Broidy might have been prearranged in exchange for possible contracts with the U.A.E. In short through Bechards, Broidy and his wife were able to black mail the sitting President of the United states. Trump still has to make the quarterly payments but Broidy gets free reign of the White House until he changes his story. Now assume the DA knows this and needs to trigger Broidy all they need to do is raid Cohen's offices. They already know evidence is there because they watched the discussion and deal as it was done. I think you could get a Grand Jury to agree and the DOJ to sign off on raiding a lawyer and not just any layer but the Current sitting Presidents Lawyer. The last thing you would want was them destroying this evidence trail. The last step for the DA's office would be to place a hold on the story the MSM might have already pulled together. This could be why only the fringe news sights are carrying the story. They just can't get Bechard to talk. Because she already has.
