Seems like it's not so mighty these days.

so what do you folks think the AG will find in all of the documents they seized? SEC crimes? Stormy payoffs?
What about the outcome with Trump?

Bank and wire fraud are almost a given. When getting the home equity loan, you need to provide the reason for the loan. I doubt he said "bribing a porn star." Same goes for establishing a corporation in Delaware. In the incorporation documents, I'm equally certain he didn't say that the corporations purpose was to bribe a porn star. Lastly, the deposit of $130K in the east coast bank and the wire transfer to the west coast bank both hit the $10K tripwire for Federal reporting to investigate and it seems this money represents a violation of campaign finance law. Just in the Stormy affair, Cohen probably engaged in 3-4 felonies.

What Mueller is reportedly interested in:
  • The special counsel Robert Mueller is reportedly probing a $150,000 donation a pro-Russian Ukrainian oligarch made to the Trump Foundation in September 2015.
  • The oligarch, Victor Pinchuk, made the donation after then-candidate Donald Trump gave a 20-minute speech at a European conference that promoted closer ties between Ukraine and the West.
  • Pinchuk has previously advocated for making compromises with Russia to resolve the conflict with Ukraine.
  • The donation was reportedly solicited by Trump's personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, whose offices were raided by the FBI as part of a separate investigation on Monday.

What no one is interested in looking closer at:

Hillary Clinton's speaking fees have been the subject of much political debate.

After she resigned as secretary of state, Clinton joined the speaking circuit, raking in millions for paid speeches at about $200,000 a pop.

An investigation from the Associated Press ties those fees to government influence. Of the nearly $22 million Clinton made in fees, most was from groups that had recently lobbied the government.

Finn is an criminal attorney now. This fits well with your skill as a mind reader.

My father was both a criminal attorney and tax attorney and I have extensive training and experience in contract law.

It has been widely reported that Cohen is being investigated for bank and wire fraud as well as campaign law violations in connection with l'affaire Stormy. What your analysis for how bank and wire fraud and campaign finance law connect to l'affaire Stormy? I gave you mine, let's hear yours.

Two of the potential crimes being investigated — bank fraud and wire fraud — suggest prosecutors have some reason to think Cohen may have misled bankers about why he was using particular funds or may have improperly used banks in the transfer of funds...

The search requests for records related to the payment to Daniels cited investigators’ interest in possible violations of election law, according to one person familiar with the investigators’ work.

That's one of many, many things Mueller is looking into. As for your questions on Hillary, her transgressions (if any) have no bearing whatsoever on the guilt (or lack thereof) of Trump and his crime family. Hillary whataboutism works on wingnut websites. It doesn't work here. Swing and a miss.
