One reason why he didn't want to be a cooperating government witness is because one of the requirements is to fully confess to all of the crimes he committed...even things that the Feds don't know about. He's done far too much to confess and so he's taken this path.
You sure know a lot about what happens when you're guilty of a lot of Federal crimes, Mr. Used to Live in New Jersey...

What the heck Matt Gaetz? is this threatening a witness?


In case he delete it

Hey @MichaelCohen212 - Do your wife & father-in-law know about your girlfriends? Maybe tonight would be a good time for that chat. I wonder if she’ll remain faithful when you’re in prison. She’s about to learn a lot...

wow, what a moran.


Dear Representative @mattgaetz .... are you represented by federal criminal defense counsel? Let me tell you why I ask. It sure seems like you're threatening Michael Cohen that if he testifies before Congress you, or people aligned with you, will bring out embarrassing details about him. There's a whole bunch of obstruction statutes, sir, and if you're threatening to reveal embarrassing information to deter a witness from testifying before Congress, I think you need advice about whether you may be violating one or more of them. https://www.law.cornell.edu/uscode/text/18/1505 The United States Department of Justice seems to take those obstruction laws rather seriously, and know a lot about them. https://www.justice.gov/jm/criminal-...se-18-usc-1505 You may try to invoke the Speech and Debate Clause, citing you Twitter account as an official act. Ask your lawyers about that; I hope you're not relying on it. In short, lawyer up, dirtbag.

The problem, of course, is that Trump would have somehow run it into the ground. He's good at that, at least.

To give some perspective, The Cowboys are the most valuable sports franchise in the world. They are #1 and another NFL team doesnít show up on the list till #6. Most in between are soccer teams. The Yankees are in the top 5.

Claiming his twitter account was hacked in ...3...2...

And he's going to get away with it. All of the Trump goons do this and get away with it. Just be sure not to be driving without your seatbelt fastened.

In other words, President Rollo Tomasi

Edit: Ugh. Just looked it up to make sure I got the L.A. Confidential reference right, and some jackhole "alpha male" has taken the name "Rollo Tomassi". So yeah, I was referring to L.A. Confidential, not this dickhead.

I was reading about Gaetz recently and decided he was a complete POS, and then this happened to confirm it.

No idea who this guy is, but I think Draven hit the nail on the head. Something legal should happen, but in Trump's America? Nothing will happen.

I think after tomorrows testimony, for the first time we may think differently - that something may happen.

Re: Official Trump Presidency Thread, Part 3

I kind of forgot about this, but popped up in my YouTube feed. While I donít think brilliant to predict, its amazing how right Oliver was. Saying that both Trump and GOP arenít concerned with facts.

With all of Trumps made up shit lately, thought worth a post,

Trump didnít sign the check or know about.
If he did sign the check or know about thatís not a crime.
If it is a crime, itís a small fine at worse.
If itís a felony you canít charge a sitting POTUS
Obama did worse (campaign finance issues).
Her emails.
