Even if Anusmouth never goes to jail himself, if all of his money men and enablers with power DO, then he'll forever be stuck as the old, whining fat man, holding his three incher and telling people he's actually not a loser. 😁

This story is obviously made-up nonsense. Donald Trump doesn't have any "close friends".

Just pathetic hangers-on whom he despises, and grifting family members (whom he probably despises even more).

Trump pardoned Elliott Broidy in January, as a reward for taking the blame for Trump mistress Shera Bechard's pregnancy (I don't think she got an abortion).

But some of the crooked lawyer's cohorts ate going down. Can Broidy still be charged with new crimes?

That inaugural fund is going to be the source of many arrests, I bet.

Wasn't he born in Kenya?

I hear he's a mooselim.

I think Garland is reluctant to create a precedent for reopening cases against a political adversary’s associates, so if the Trump Justice Dept decided not to prosecute, Garland will treat it as case-closed, absent some kind of clear corruption.

by Anonymousreply 11Last Tuesday at 11:42 AM

Someone needs to locate Garland's balls and send them back to him via Fed Ex (not the USPS, thanks DeJoy!). After all, since 2016 we live in "unprecedented" times. So, Garland, SET A NEW, HIGHER PRECEDENT! We should expect our representatives to be of a higher quality of people. Letting people slide will only give us more MTGs, Laura Boeberts and Marty Gaetzes.

You want each Justice Dept to reopen closed cases against the President’s enemies? Let’s go after Hillary one more time the next time a Republican wins?

The Justice Department is supposed to make policy without regard to politics. There are many good reasons to keep confidential grand jury records until the people involved are dead.

To the Feds: Could you pick up the pace a bit and arrest motherfucking Trump?!

And while you're at it...Ivanka, Junior, Eric and Kushner too!

I see he also formerly owned Neverland Ranch. I guess he's the one who bought it from MJ's estate.

Ivanka must be furiously packing her Louis Vuitton luggage and searching for her passport. She may be taking an extended vacation to a non-extradition country.

That Inaugural committee was a total money laundering scheme. I hope Barrack has some info/receipts that'll help the feds indict the Trump children.

Here's an interesting thread about Barrack and his lawyer.

If you scroll through, Tim Hogan states that he believes Barrack is on the path to flipping and going into the witness protection program.

None of these outrageous, soap-opera-like twists and turns that the Twitter pundits suggest ever come true, though.

The hearing for Barrack has been moved up to today. I guess he didn't want to spend the entire weekend in a jail cell.

That’s 100% true. The media entertains its audience by presenting theories of how the bad guys will ultimately sell out their kingpins and pay the price for their greedy unlawfulness. But today’s kingpins aren’t Brooklyn mafioso wearing pinky rings. They’re celebrities who’ve been stealing in plain sight for decades, and along the way they bought politicians to write laws going easy on their white collars.

And I’d like to say that while Michael Cohen is funny & entertaining, I don’t think these arrests are coming from him. I think they’re a result of investigation, just like his arrest was. Bu5 he’ll take credit because…why not? I would, too. His father in law is a high level Russian mobster and the mob doesn’t need Trump anymore, so it’s ok to let everyone think Michael took him down.

by Anonymousreply 32Yesterday at 5:39 AM

I disagree completely about Michael Cohen, R32

He has supplied at least a portion of the paper trail that is going to be the star witness to several trials.

$250 million bail for Barrack. Is that an all time record?
