    This hush money was poorly spent. As far as "hush" goes, this has been talked about on all media for years. That is the exact opposite of "hush".

    So Michael Cohen is now the Star of the Democrats? Even with the Dems traveling to NY and coaching him for 4 hours, he still lied at least 3 times under oath.

    DJT clearly said to use cash and Cohen was the one that said "nononono" and to use the corporation. Giuliani is old and can't hear it well enough. Maybe he should watch Wizard of Oz with the sound down and listen to Dark Side of the Moon.

    Actually you can't be a lawyer for a shade business without recording everything. It's how you screw them when they eventually screw you. But you should keep it with your lawyer along with a instruction to open and disseminate in case of your death.

    .WASHINGTON (AP) - A federal judge ordered former Trump campaign foreign policy adviser George Papadopoulos to report to prison as scheduled, rejecting his last-minute bid to delay his two-week sentence.
    Papadopoulos is to begin serving his sentence Monday.
    He was sentenced in September for lying to the FBI in the Russia investigation. He had sought a postponement of his prison term until an appeals court had ruled in a separate case challenging the constitutionality of special counsel Robert Mueller's appointment.
    The special counsel’s investigation has, so far, produced nearly 200 criminal charges against 32 people and three businesses.
    Five people have pleaded guilty to crimes; including three former Trump associates (former campaign adviser George Papadopoulos, former national security advisor Michael Flynn, and former campaign adviser Rick Gates).
    On August 21, 2018, a jury in Alexandria, Virginia found a fourth former Trump associate, former campaign chairman Paul Manafort, guilty.
    And 25 Russian citizens and three Russian businesses face charges for meddling in the 2016 U.S. election.
    Mueller’s probe started in May 2017 and soon expanded to look into whether Trump obstructed justice.
    He filed charges of financial crimes on October 30, 2017 against Manafort and Gates - who ran the Trump campaign for five months in 2016.
    That same day, Papadopoulos pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI about his contacts with Russian officials.
    And on December 1, 2017, Flynn pleaded guilty to making false statements to the FBI about his conversation with Russia’s U.S. ambassador.
    He’s been cooperating with the special counsel since.
    The New Year brought with it a new list of developments.
    On February 16, 2018, 13 Russians and three Russian companies were charged with meddling in the 2016 U.S. election through social media.
    That same day, a California man, Richard Pinedo, pleaded guilty to identity fraud for selling false bank accounts, including to some Russians.
    Just days later, on February 20, 2018, Dutch lawyer Alex van der Zwaan, who has ties to Russia, pleaded guilty to lying to investigators about his work and his communications with Gates.
    On February 22, 2018, Mueller added 32 new charges against Manafort and Gates. But then Gates flipped on the next day, pleading guilty to lying to investigators and conspiracy.
    Less than two months later, on April 3, 2018, van der Zwaan was sentenced to 30 days in prison and received a fine of $20,000. He becomes the first person to be sentenced in the Mueller probe.
    Then on June 8, 2018, Mueller hit Manafort again with charges of witness tampering. That led a judge to revoke Manafort’s bail, end his house arrest, and send him to jail to wait for his August trial to start.
    The special counsel also charged one of Manafort’s former aides, Konstantin Kilimnik. He worked for Manafort in Ukraine and potentially has ties to Russian intelligence.
    One month later, on July 13, 2018, Mueller charged 12 more Russians with hacking the Democratic National Committee during the 2016 election.
    Things intensify
    As a Virginia jury deliberated Manafort’s fate in August, The New York Times reported White House lawyer Don McGahn has been cooperating extensively with Mueller.
    On August 21, 2018, the 12-person jury found Manafort guilty of eight of the 18 financial crimes he was charged with. Gates was the government’s star witness.
    Manafort faces another trial in Washington, D.C. in mid-September.
    That same day, Michael Cohen, Trump’s former personal attorney, pleaded guilty in Manhattan federal court to eight counts of his own financial crimes. He also implicated Trump in his courtroom statement.
    Mueller had previously handed over the investigation into Cohen to prosecutors in New York.
    A lawyer for Cohen has said his client has information that will be ‘of interest’ to the special counsel.

    First of all. This is not the tape Cohen recorded but a re recorded one to frame Donald Trump.Secondly this audio recording was done completely without the consent of his client Donald Trump which is illegal to begin with.Therefore this show has committed a criminal act for obtaining any illegal act of re recording on top of the already illegal recording original.

Oh, and Bob Menendez too, not a surprise.Tre Gowdy, that freaky lawyer that Paul Manafort has. Matt Gaetz, Sean Hannity. I'm shuddering just visualizing these subhumans. Rudy Giuliani...I need a bleach bath. Don't think I'm lost on the irony of my own freakish (chosen) appearance. The difference is, I cause no harm.These "men", have chosen to willfully disregard most of us for personal gain! All the while, part of them understands this to be true. If any of them, ever, feel personal affect, I will eat my kitchen sink. Cheers people.
