I'm sure Donnie boy would not grasp the distinction, and would try to go ahead and pardon him for everything.

After all, Trump will probably go with the following:

"I don't know Mr. Cohen," Trump said in a statement released by the White House. "But for years I have heard that he has been treated unfairly. Hopefully, this full pardon will help rectify a very sad portion of his life."

What's also hilarious is that even Dershowitz told Hannity that he should have mentioned that he met with Cohen. Hannity has a right to privacy. Privacy for what, his non-lawyer?


https://www.yahoo.com/news/sean-hann...023025110.html

Quote:
“I really think that you should have disclosed your relationship with Cohen when you talked about him on this show,” Dershowitz said.

“I have a right to privacy,” the Fox News host retorted. “It was such a minor relationship and it had to do with real estate and nothing political.”

4 tweets this morning. Nothing about Cohen or Hannity surprisingly.

I don't even know what that idiot means here. It could be "I very much wanted to start building the wall in San Diego before now", or more likely he doesn't know the difference between much and many.

Trump Pence Make America Great Again


XXXX,

If James Comey really had something big to say, why would he put it in a book and try to make millions off of it?

The truth is James Comey is a grandstanding liar who put his own interests above America’s.

Comey represents the worst of the swamp. He doesn’t want hardworking Americans like you to win.

Today we fight back. Let’s show him how many Americans refuse to let him silence them.

Well at some point you must have donated to the GOP to be on a list for that email.

I got the same email. I once went to Trump's site to respond to a poll so that it wouldn't just be one-sided in his favor. You have to give an email address (I used the one I don't care if it gets spam). Now they're constantly asking me for money.

I just got a text inviting me to an America First Policies event to discuss tax cuts/Jobs Act with Mike Pence. I'm in if there's a Q&A.

Who's stupid enough to believe that any American doesn't want "hard-working Americans [...] to win", whatever that means?

You guys gotta triage your email accounts better.

primary email - tier 1 - friends and family (not that anyone uses anything but FB any more.)
Important accounts you want two-factor for - banking, Steam, PSN, Xboxlive, etc
Seller accounts - ebay, Amazon

Everything else is under my secondary account - outlook accounts can have aliases that all route to the same email box (in their own folder). Super handy.

Tier 2 - places I sorta care about emails and notifications from, almost. Message boards, reddit, and for me working in IT security, accounts at places like VirusTotal or malwr.com.

Tier 3 - everybody else that spams me with coupons and invoices and other garbage. Best Buy, Microcenter, cool T-shirt .coms, whatever.

I don't even read the messages in Tier 1 /2 minus a glance once in a while or a search for a coupon or a receipt. I mass-delete stuff out of them once in a while when I get bored.

Lastly I have a real-name email (an alias in the above mailbox) just for job applications and job sites. Need something more professional.

2 email accounts / 4 levels of triage on whether I see it or not.
