    Well, and there was a massive payoff campaign to keep them quiet over the last year or two.

    How can we be disappointed that a thread about the president’s attorney being raided by the feds as a result of dueling lawsuits between he, the president and a porn star that was paid just before the election to keep quiet about an affair they had had ~10 years prior reached 100 pages with no signs of stopping?

    Really now

    He's been a public figure most of the last 30 years, jumped on the birther bandwagon immediately, and declared his candidacy I think in late 2014.

    I'm very surprised the Clinton campaign oppo team wasn't able to uncover more of this.

    Again, it's worth remembering that a large part of why it had such little impact was because Wikileaks released the Podesta email "leak" (the one that birthed Pizza gate) 29 minutes after the Access Hollywood tape came out.

    Oh wow. It's just like Trump predicted a few days ago.



    What a good guess Donald. I wonder how you could have known that Cohen was doing illegal shit with his taxi company.

    Oh what's that?

    Cohen was using Trump Organization resources to manage the taxi company?

    How very interesting.
    Cohen, who has worked for Trump since the mid-2000s and has been described as his “pit bull,” has used his Trump Organization email address to conduct business with New York’s Taxi and Limousine Commission since at least 2009. That could mean that if Cohen did anything illegal that involved both his taxi business and his work for Trump, it might be hard for either of them to maintain that Trump didn’t know anything about it.

    So did they settle for just good ol’ fashioned medallion fraud? We’ve known about this since the start of the thread...

    So we’ve got Russians, a corrupt taxi business in Manhattan, and financial crimes. Just need a blind vigilante and a 400 year old Chinese lady and we’re set.

    Cohen, Trump’s Ex-Lawyer, Investigated for Bank Fraud in Excess of $20 Million
    Federal authorities investigating whether President Trump’s former personal lawyer and fixer, Michael D. Cohen, committed bank and tax fraud have zeroed in on well over $20 million in loans obtained by taxi businesses that he and his family own, according to people familiar with the matter.

    Investigators are also examining whether Mr. Cohen violated campaign finance or other laws by helping to arrange financial deals to secure the silence of women who said they had affairs with Mr. Trump. The inquiry has entered the final stage and prosecutors are considering filing charges by the end of August, two of the people said.
    There is no indication that either bank suffered a loss as a result of the loans or that Mr. Cohen missed payments, which are ordinarily important aspects in a bank fraud case. While bank fraud without a loss is rarely charged on its own, it is sometimes charged in conjunction with other crimes, which may be what happens in Mr. Cohen’s case.

    At this late stage of the inquiry, it is still possible that Mr. Cohen may plead guilty rather than face an indictment. He has hinted publicly and has stated explicitly in private that he is eager to tell prosecutors what he knows in exchange for leniency.
    The wording makes it sound like they have a decent case.

    Michael Cohen, President Trump's former personal attorney, is discussing a possible guilty plea with federal prosecutors in Manhattan in connection with tax fraud and banking-related matters, multiple sources familiar with the matter tell NBC News.

    Those sources stress no deal has been reached but do say the potential deal could be reached as early as today.

    Someone's going to be tweeting angry tonight.

    I imagine the outcome of the Manafort trial will be the deciding factor here. If Manafort gets buried in convictions, Cohen will be more likely to make a deal, IMO.

    Friday came early this week.

    Pac Man's character is difficult to explain even to the Japanese -- he is an innocent character. He hasn't been educated to discern between good and evil. He acts more like a small child than a grown-up person. Think of him as a child learning in the course of his daily activities. If someone tells him guns are evil, he would be the type to rush out and eat guns. But he would most probably eat any gun, even the pistols of policemen who need them.
