A shell company that Michael D. Cohen used to pay hush money to a pornographic film actress received payments totaling more than $1 million from an American company linked to a Russian oligarch and several corporations with business before the Trump administration, according to documents and interviews.

So, now we appear to have Russians paying to cover-up Trump's affairs.

Beginning to look a lot like bribery for these companies, all of whom had deals dependent on government approval of some sort. Does anyone (besides our village idiot) think the Trump crime syndicate is above bribery?

Mike Levin
@MikeLevinCA

Why isn’t it a bigger deal that Michael Cohen was the deputy finance chair of the Republican National Committee while he was being paid by Russian oligarchs and big corporations? This is on the whole Republican Party.

Will the Trumpkins even care if a huge pay-to-play scheme is uncovered? Cohen had many other LLCs, what else will the Southern District find? Judging by the rabid defense of their Dear Leader by idiots like Whell, they have no morals whatsoever. They’re willing to defend Donny no matter how obviously corrupt he is, so long as he stays true to their idiot beliefs.

Out of loopholes, Trump must disclose Stormy Daniels debt in next financial report

https://www.usatoday.com/story/opini...umn/605893002/

Quote:
President Trump has a big decision to make. Unless he requests an extension, his personal financial disclosure report is due on Tuesday. Under the Ethics in Government Act, he has to disclose all liabilities that exceeded $10,000 at any time during calendar year 2017, even if he repaid them later that year. That includes his debt to Michael Cohen for the $130,000 payment Cohen made in October 2016 to adult film star Stormy Daniels

And what does the Ethics in Government Act say, I wonder, about what happens if Trump fails to accurately disclose this liability?

When there are no ethics, why would anything Trump says or does matter?

In fact, his approval rating is on the uptick probably because of overtures from Lil Kim. Come of think of it, this is a great destabilizing strategy on the part of countries like China, Russia and North Korea to keep the US chaotic and unstable while the Stable Dotard gets to revel in it.

I would hate to have to look at the international scenery at the end Trump's term which I believe would be 2020, since there is no will on the GOP to ever impeach him due to their fear of the GOP base.

And of course Donny paid off Stormy. This alone would get any other president* impeached...

http://www.businessinsider.com/trump...payment-2018-5

David Apol, the director of the OGE, sent a letter to Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, saying he "may find the disclosure relevant to any inquiry you may be pursuing regarding the President's prior report that was signed on June 14, 2017."

"This is tantamount to a criminal referral," said Walter Shaub, the former director of the OGE under Trump who has since become one of his chief critics. "OGE has effectively reported the president to DOJ for potentially committing a crime."
