    If Trump is so terrible why did Cohen work for him?

    'I've spoken of the Shining City all my political life. …In my mind it was a tall, proud city built on rocks stronger than oceans, windswept, God-blessed, and teeming with people of all kinds living in harmony and peace; a city with free ports that hummed with commerce and creativity. And if there had to be city walls, the walls had doors and the doors were open to anyone with the will and the heart to get here. That's how I saw it, and see it still.'" Ronald Reagan

    Cohen is a fixer. Got to work for somebody who needs help with fixing...that ain't Mother Teresa.

    Btw, is the fact that Donald Trump is a despicable human being new news?

    Writing hush money checks while in office is new news.

    So you agree that he is a racist, a conman and a cheat?

    Cohen explains that in his statement. If you haven’t read it you should.

    I have no proof he's a racist or a tax cheat. But he's certainly a conman, misogynistic, boorish, a bully and heaven knows what else.

    I know this is true.

    Fiat Chrysler said it will spend $4.5 billion to build the first new auto assembly plant in Detroit in almost three decades, boosting its workforce in the area by about 6,500 jobs. Investment officials touted the plan as an uncommon opportunity to revive the region's economy.

    President Donald Trump thanked Fiat Chrysler via Twitter. "They are all coming back to the USA, it's where the action is!" he wrote on Wednesday morning.

    Chrysler had the worst reliability record of any car company with significant sales in the United States, then it was bought by Fiat, which has a worse record. Having owned a Fiat, and watched a family Plymouth slowly disintegrate in just three years I do not think I ever would buy another.

    Quite a day. Cohen's been disbarred by New York State, and the Florida Congressman who threatened Cohen yesterday has been referred to the Florida State Bar. And that's just today.

    What do you think, did his tweet amount to witness tampering?

    yeah, technically.

    I say "technically" because its an easy law to violate, but its not always easy to sell a prosecution to a jury. As a lawyer, he **** well shouldn't have done it. I'll tell you that.

    To many, yes. Yes, indeed it is.

  • Shawn C.Shawn C. Senior Member Posts: 6,858 Senior Member

    Just read a comment on a NYT article. It alluded to this whole situation being like 'The Producers.' "Don't worry Michael, we're not going to win! This is going to be the best infomercial ever!"

    Kind of makes you proud of your party doesn't it?

    You do get that all of those lies were in support of Trump and on Trump's orders, right?

    So as a lawyer you can't refuse to work for someone?

    I really don't have that much interest in it to tell you the truth.

    Why? We don't have a parliamentary system.

  • StevenSteven Senior Member Posts: 3,396 Senior Member

    Article I read last night says Trump can rely on Cohen's advice (or lack of advice) regarding the Stormy payments.

    There isn't anything that's come to light that makes me wish Hillary had won. After the Kavanaugh hearings, AKA disgusting abuse of power, were you proud of your party?

    I am proud that my party asked for an investigation of an alleged sexual abuser. Are you proud your party just told women that their claims don't matter?

    You mean the FBI? I believe that's exactly how the law works.

  • fishingcomicfishingcomic Senior Member Posts: 23,885 Senior Member

    That was not an investigation into those allegations.
