    I just pre-ordered Comey's book. It should be good. Hopefully better than Fire & Fury, which I thought was pretty boring.

    MSNBC reporting that Trump is STILL in contact with Michael Cohen. A BIG No-No. He was allegedly "checking in", because Cohen is stressed out (well, duh). Trump seems to be fishing around for what actually might have been taken out of Cohen's office.

    I can't access Faux News from work. What is this nut sack going on about?

    DOJ just issued the McCabe report - which is a total disaster. He LIED! LIED! LIED! McCabe was totally controlled by Comey - McCabe is Comey!! No collusion, all made up by this den of thieves and lowlifes!

    The pardon was nothing more than to show his base how someone else has been the victim of a special counsel "gone amuck". So that Trump and his associates could also be the victims of Mueller's "witch hunt". TBH, I have always believed that Libby was kind of a scapegoat ... I think the Plame leak was probably Cheney himself and Cheney and Libby made some kind of deal or pact. So I have no sympathy for Libby if that's the case. Cheney and W had several fights over whether Libby should be pardoned back when W was transitioning out of his second term. Cheney told him that you never leave a man down or behind. But W didn't believe Libby deserved a pardon .... in fact, W was notoriously stingy with pardons as a whole .... I think he's pardoned far less criminals than any other president in recent times. W and Cheney's relationship suffered over this and never recovered. In the end, W gave Libby a commuted sentence, which still didn't appease Cheney or Libby. A lot of Republicans thought that Libby should have been pardoned back at the end of W's term. So this is nothing but a ludicrous production to bring another talking point forward and get Trump's base and old school Republicans riled up about yet another special counsel "running amuck". This is all smoke and mirrors, and is just disgraceful.

    So it's 4pmEST ... where's the announcement about Rosenstein? I'm betting that if he fires Rosenstein (and I could go on and on about how Rosenstein has been nothing but a slave to the judicial process at the DOJ, he did NOTHING wrong, except to not acquiesce to be Trump's lap dog, just like Sessions), this is literally going to be the beginning of the end for him. His personal lawyer is under a CRIMINAL investigation (so, nowhere close to "an attack on our country") and now there's stories of Cohen facilitating a $1.6 MILLION payment to a GOP fundraiser. No matter how stupid you are ... all of this is going to implicate Trump in some way and he knows it. And just like Nixon, he's going to start firing Attorney Generals and their deputies until he gets one that will be loyal to only Trump. That is NOT the way our judicial branch works and he's going to be learned of that very soon, in terms (like impeachment proceedings or maybe even handcuffs) that even his pea brain can comprehend. This same scenario was the beginning of the end of Nixon.

    The Inspector General's report on McCabe was released that concluded McCabe "lacked candor" in regards to the question of his releasing information to the public. Yeah, I think I would lack candor too if questioned by one of Dump's lap dogs.

    But I suppose when Dump and his people "lack candor" like Huckabeast, that's not lying. I hate these people.

    Speculation is that Trump leaked to Fox that he was going to fire Rosenstein and for some reason there is a delay in him doing that.

    As usual, Trump didn't go through the "required" channels to pardon Libby. He just went ahead and did it.

    So, the "lack of candor" when the info was released about Clinton's investigation re: ZOMG TEH EMAILZ!!1!!!!1! not being over, days before the election? That it could be argued tamped down the number of last minute on the fence voters who just said fuck it I'm staying at home, too much drama. Fucktard doesn't get Comey and McCabe HELPED his old fat dotard ass marginally "win" the electoral college vote.

    I think Dump is prolonging the firing to let Faux News get the talking points going about how this McCabe is a LIAR narrative can be attached to Rosenstein is a CROOK who has been colluding with Comey & McCabe and the deep state against the dear leader since BEFORE the election and it's treason and they all need to be executed.

    NEW: President Trump’s advisers have concluded that a wide-ranging corruption investigation in New York poses a greater and more imminent threat to the president than even the special counsel’s investigation. @maggieNYT @nytmike report. https://t.co/2XhFIKUV8t

    Prosecutors Probing Michael Cohen are Heavy Hitters

    Justin Miller
    04.13.18 6:17 PM ET


    Yana Paskova/Getty Images


    Michael Cohen has never faced attorneys like the ones investigating him.


    The federal prosecutors looking into Cohen, the longtime lawyer and fixer for Donald Trump, have deep and varied experience with financial crimes such as bank fraud, money laundering, and racketeering. On Friday, they submitted a court filing that gave the first glimpse into the investigation that exploded into the public eye with an FBI raid on Cohen’s office and home on Monday.


    "The searches are the result of a months-long investigation into Cohen," according to the filing submitted by the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York, into acts of concealment and fraud he may have committed. While prosecutors did not disclose those acts, the search warrant served on Cohen reportedly sought documents pertaining to his efforts to pay off two women during the 2016 presidential campaign who said they had sex with Trump, among other topics.



    Cohen claims he paid $130,000 of his own money to Stephanie Clifford, a.k.a. porn star Stormy Daniels, in October 2016. In exchange for the money, Clifford signed a non-disclosure agreement stipulating she would not discuss her alleged affair with Trump. Cohen set up a shell company that obscured the payment and the agreement. The other woman, Karen McDougal, claims in a lawsuit that Cohen was secretly involved in her talks with the National Enquirer’s publisher to “catch and kill” her story on Trump.


    Shady financial dealings are what Thomas McKay, Rachel Maimin, and Nicolas Roos are used to digging into. They are the assistant U.S. attorneys who wrote the court filing Friday in response to Cohen’s motion to a federal judge to keep records seized by the FBI out of prosecutors’ hands.



    McKay and Roos are part of the public corruption unit of the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York, which goes after corruption crimes committed by government officials, as well as frauds committed against the government.


    McKay was part of the team that convicted New York’s former state Senate majority leader, Dean Skelos, for crimes including using his office to pressure businesses to give his son hundreds of thousands of dollars. The 2015 conviction was overturned by an appeals court thanks to a 2016 Supreme Court decision that narrowed the definition of corruption; a retrial is scheduled for later this year.


    Roos recently charged an NYPD detective with bank fraud for stealing $1.5 million from victims by depositing the money into accounts the cop controlled. A month earlier, he charged a graduate-school employee and students with conspiracy to commit wire fraud by creating a kickback scheme to pocket financial aid. Last year, he prosecuted an international money laundering scheme to bribe African officials and another plan to con financial institutions and investors into giving loans to phony businesses.


    Maimin is a member of the violent and organized crime section of the attorney’s office, which has seen her prosecute multiple cases of racketeering, including the largest gang takedown in New York history that saw 120 members and associates of two rival Bronx street gangs charged in 2016.
