>the impeachment was for perjury and obstruction not the blow job

Yep. And I think we will see the same pattern play out here. It's not going to be Trump's collusion with Russia that does him in, but all the attempts to cover it up.



I think the payoff to the porn star and the playmate will bite him in the ass first. Especially now that his buddy at the Enquirer is talking.

Fixed for you. As the indictments come down mentioning the new exposures of David J. Pecker, AMI, trump, wrongdoing. The tweets of a weak Pecker will pour from the WH. Sorry couldn't resist.

Mueller had the details about a AMI-trump coverup already. So why did AMI get complete blanket immunity? Cohen was already cooperating.

There has been a Pecker trump relationship for decades. The weak-Pecker and the small orange hands. Will get maximum exposure to the media in 2019. Sorry again.

"Pecker’s apparent decision to corroborate Cohen’s account, and implicate Trump in a federal crime, is another vivid example of how isolated Trump is becoming as the walls close in and his former friends look for ways out. “Holy shit, I thought Pecker would be the last one to turn,” a Trump friend told me when I brought up the news. Trump and Pecker have been close for years. According to the Trump friend, Pecker regularly flew on Trump’s plane from New York to Florida. In July 2013, Trump tweeted that Pecker should become C.E.O. of Time magazine. “He’d make it exciting and win awards!”

During the 2016 campaign, Pecker provided invaluable media support to Trump by regularly attacking his Republican rivals and Hillary Clinton. At times, it seemed like the Enquirer operated as a de-facto arm of the campaign. In October 2015, I reported that Trump aides were a source for an Enquirer article exposing Ben Carson’s malpractice lawsuits (“Bungling Surgeon Ben Carson Left Sponge in Patient’s Brain!”). Pecker denied it at the time. In June, The Washington Post reported that the Enquirer routinely sent stories to Trump to review prior to publication. (The Enquirer denied that as well.) During the transition, rumors circulated that Trump was considering Pecker for a prime ambassadorship. Last summer, Pecker reportedly brought an adviser to Saudi Prince Mohammed bin Salman to meet Trump in the Oval Office to help him expand A.M.I.’s business."

Won't be long before we hear "Pecker who? I don't know anything about him" from Trump.

I wonder where Trump learned that from?

Wow. Sorta scraping the bottom of the barrel there. Although Christie does have the needed prerequisite of extensive experience with the criminal justice system . . .



It would have made for great drama though, considering the Kushner family history with Christie.:D:D:D

That must be a planned part of that military rebuilt Trump was tweeting about....B|

And wow, Mattis in very kind words told Trump to go fuck himself.

My guess is a further drop in the Dow and a war with Iran is one step closer. Price of oil will probably start rising.

This is why I've always liked and respected the man. We haven't always agreed on certain personnel and organization issues, but I always felt comfortable expressing my point of view in our conversations, even with about six pay grades separating us.

I respect that he took the job to help protect us, and he did a hell of a job for these two years. I totally understand why he just can't do it anymore. [:/]

So the story thus far:

Christie got fired from the Trump team. He threatened to go to the papers unless Bannon told him why. Bannon told him he was acting on Jared Kushner's orders.

Why did Jared want Christie out? Because Christie was a Federal prosecutor who put Charles Kushner, Jared's father, in Federal prison in 2005. He was convicted on 14 counts of witness tampering and tax evasion.

(I know what you're thinking. And Trump didn't hire Charles? He'd be _perfect_ for the Trump team!)

The story gets better.

Over a decade ago, Charles Kushner hired a sex worker to seduce his brother-in-law Bill Schulder. Then he filmed them having sex in a cheap motel. Then he sent the recording to his own sister for safekeeping, and used it to blackmail Bill into keeping quiet about Charle's crimes.

During the Trump transition, Jared pleaded with Trump to give Christie the axe. The sex tape and blackmailing, according to him, was "a family matter, a matter to be handled by the family or by the rabbis.” Christie was evil for prosecuting those crimes.

Family values, Trump style.

Family values, trump style its what mob families do until the "rats" as trump calls them, turn state's evidence.

Michael Cohen and Allen Weisselberg need to co-author a book. So Hollywood can start on the movie(s).

Aside from Kushner's unethical motivations, it brings up even more questions about the White House structure, doesn't it? At this point Bannon was White House Chief Strategist and Senior Councelor to the President. At the time (IIRC) supposedly 2nd to the Chief of Staff in the hierarchy. And kushner, a member of the First Family, is giving him orders?

Honestly, who the fuck knows which way is up in that building for the past two years?:o

In the Michael Wolf book (Fire & Fury), and the Bob Woodward book (Fear), it was clear there were 3 different factions fighting for control at the beginning:
1. Ivanka/Jared & allies (who were Democrats before 2016).
2. Bannon/Miller & allies (the alt-right).
3. Reince Priebus & allies (the establishment GOP).

With the departure of Bannon and Priebus, it is clear the books are already too dated to give an understanding of what is happening today.

And then the question is, what do they want with it when they have it? Bannon and Miller are extreme, but you know what their agenda is. The established GOP, again you know what they want. Ivanka and Jared... apart from leveraging influence to prop up the Kushner real estate clusterfuck what is their actual deal?

Because of the revolving nature of WH personnel, insiders and advisors. IMO its always been pretty clear. For trump and his family its about making money and appeasing influential groups.. Including foreign governments, i.e. Russia, Saudi.. Beyond that its "who the f**k knows". Because there has never been a central ideology of government. FOX news celebrities are missed from your equation. They will become more important in the next and final year of the trump regime.

Trump whisperers: are Stephen Miller and Fox keeping the shutdown alive?

Cliff Sims (author of "Team of Vipers") was on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert last night.

At 6:15 there is a great story about Kellyanne:

 

"Trump insists Sims — an Alabama native who previously worked on the Trump 2016 campaign – was never in his inner circle, he “feels duped by a guy who he trusted,” said a person close to the White House.

In the book, Sims described how he worked with Trump to create what Sims calls an “enemies list” of suspected leakers. Sims “creates a list of leakers which turns out to be the people he doesn’t like, and the guy who makes the list turns out to be the million-dollar leaker,” said a current White House official. A person familiar with the matter confirmed that Sims had received a seven-figure advance for the book, a fact that the New York Times first reported in November.

The person close to the White House also noted that: “The president’s been warned about lots of hires that shouldn’t have happened, and he’s still hired them.”

The White House had no public complaint when Sims departed last year. In a statement to an Alabama news outlet, White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said: “Cliff Sims was a valuable member of President Trump’s team on the campaign and for 15 months in the White House. I worked with him on both and he is talented, smart, and worked hard for the President."

Trump ‘very pissed off’ at former White House aide’s tell-all

Clearly a new thread needs to be started about the best tell all books of the corrupt trump regime.It getting increasingly hard to ascertain who remains to be published.
