The payoff: Cash or check?

When I saw the copies of Trump's checks to Michael Cohen on TV, I thought of that scene in the Sopranos where the crew is counting money. No explanation is provided about where it came from: prostitution, protection, drugs, numbers? 

Unlike Tony, evidently sometimes Trump has to write a personal check for his crime family. Tony would never do that. Why leave a fucking paper trail when you're doing business?

Yes lawyers are free. They are not suppose to be getting paid. Shame on that check.

Those checks from Trump were to reimburse Cohen after he fronted the hush money.

Where is the Russian collusion?

This trial wasn't about collusion but about his tax fraud, bank fraud, and failure to report overseas assets. He was guilty of all of that.

He still could be indicted for collusion. Apparently Mueller is particularly interested in a meeting Manafort had with Konstantin Kiliminik, during which he gave the Russian agent Republican polling data, which the Russians may have used to help Trump win the election. I suspect Mueller will have more to tell us on this when he makes his report.

"This trial wasn't about collusion but about his tax fraud, band fraud, and failure to report overseas assets. He was guilty of all that."

For someone that has been adamant about collusion is his posts in glad you finally made a true statement. "This trial wasn't about collusion".

As for the rest of your statement if it refers to Trump we have a problem. None of it is true. Bellow is a link of Trumps financial statement to the federal government as required by law when running for election. In which an investigation of it must occur and has already been completed.

Nice try but the investigation of exactly what Trump knew and when he knew it about the many Russian contacts his campaign had is underway and led by Special Counsel Mueller. The notion that the form you link somehow makes the investigation moot is wishful thinking. Trump is surely guilty of obstruction of justice, but the reason behind his many attempts to stop and/or denigrate Mueller and the investigation is still unclear. Why all the lies by his many associates about their contacts with Russia? What are they all trying to hide? I suspect it has something to do with Russian investments, outright collusion, or money laundering. We should find out soon.

Your continued defense of Trump is almost touching, though he's someone who'd almost rather lie than the simple truth. The worst thing that ever happened to him is getting elected president, which brought the kind of scrutiny even New York City didn't provide.

He's the worst president in US history, a contemptible human being, and he's going down! The only question now---the most important issue facing the country---is how do we get rid of this asshole?

Speaking of lies. Flint is the one the say lies although the FBI stated they didn't think he lied.
What other associates are you referring to with regards to lying about Russia? You have the proof? List them. No one has been charged with russian anything only in dealings of private finances.

You have no idea what do with yourself. You preached and talk your crap about collusion. Where is it? You speak without proof. There is no collusion which is exactly why you and CNN and Adam shithead are the only ones still speaking Russia.

You then flip it to finances. Knowing all candidates are investigated inside and out esp with their finances which is basically the first thing the government looks at you still preach that lie. The link provides disclosure. You said "failing to disclose overseas assets". That link shows the disclosure of overseas assets.

Your also quick to call Trump and republicans racist yet you don't condem any democrat with proof. Instead you call them exceptions which is racist in its self. Your either against racisim or your not no exceptions.

You then now in the end throw in obstruction. Obstruction to what? Firing an FBI director? All presidents have the right to fire FBI directors which is not obstruction. To throw obstruction out there is either your too stupid to know any better(which your not). Or you just don't give a fuck and prefer to repeat that lie to feel better.

I throw the truth or fact at you only to have you state a historic reference, deflect, repeat a lie then insult the president. That's all you have. You have nothing except to talk out of your ass only to feel good for the day.

"Flint"? You mean "Flynn," right? Michael Flynn lied to the FBI about his discussions with the Russian ambassador, which is why he lost his job. Then Trump tried to get Comey to stop the investigation into Flynn. Where do you get your information? That's where your problem lies.

The overseas assets issue was about Manafort, not Trump. Manafort was convicted among other things of hiding his overseas assets, remember? He got a lot of that money while working for the pro-Russia politician in the Ukraine.

Which Democrats do you think are racists? The Governor of Virginia? He admitted the blackface incident that happened a long time ago. Not at all clear if he's actually now a racist or really ever was, actually. Name some racist Democrats. I can't think of any offhand.

On collusion: Flynn was talking to the Russians about lifting sanctions. Ditto for Manafort, who apparently engineered the change to the Republican platform in 2016 to soften the US stand against Russia's invasion of the Ukraine.

The collusion issue about the Scumbag in Chief and his many stooges will be answered by Mueller in his report. There's already evidence that it was happening with his associates. The only question to answer is what did the Asshole in Chief know and when did he know it and whether there was a quid pro quo about the Russian interference in the election.

Your comments have been fact-free. Please specify what I've lied about.

Here's a list you should ponder:
Trump and His Associates Had More Than 100 Contacts With Russians Before the Inauguration

1.My info comes from publicly released documents by the federal government. I think that holds more water than your bullshit articles and opinion pieces from the media.

2. Virginia governor. You have posted articles and memes including your own opinions on how republicans and Trump are racisit without question and without proof except for your opinions, lines taken out of context and other opinion pieces. Making it seem as though you are die hard anti-racist. You haven't said a damn word of anti anything when it came to the Virginia democrat govener. First you brushed it off calling it an exception. And now you say it's not clear if he's actually at all racist. Not to mention the gov official in man actually using the words "N Town" No such thing as ahalf ass anti-racist. No such thing as in protect democrats that do racist shit. Your either anti-racist or your not period!

3. There is no collusion and won't be collusion. There never was and everybody knows it. Which is why the democrats have flipped the script staying away from that subject. The Cohen show was proof of that. Mueller will come out with no collusion and that same day or the next you will post something about him being paid off as the reasoning. Which is what I'm expecting.

"Your comments have been fact-free".

Your opinions and how you feel about Trump are not facts and do not prove I've stated no facts. With regards to what you bullshit about it's all in your posts and responses. When I post a link as proof you go silent and move on to your next post.
Other than opinions and repeating bulkshit you have zero concrete. Be a man about your shit Mr Grown up.

The only time you honestly post anything concrete
With actually proof that's not an opinion of bullshit is when it comes to the SF bycicle issue.

Could you be more specific about where you get your information? Breitbart, Fox News, the Drudge Report?

Once again your long comment is fact-free. Maybe the Governor of Virginia is a racist, but I haven't seen any convincing evidence of that. Why don't you find some and provide a link as a basis for discussion?

Looking at the thread above, the only link you've provided is for a Trump financial disclosure form from January, 2017. You have a peculiar faith in the information on that form. Trump is a congenital liar, especially about money. Hard for anyone but a True Believer to think that's the last word on his financial conflicts of interest.

While you're at it, provide some more names of racist Democrats.

I provided links to back up my arguments about Trump, including this one in my last response. Why are all these Trump associates lying about their contacts with Russians? Seems like a suspicious pattern to me.
