Re: Today in Trump's new term as President

Really? A plea deal involves trying of the facts? No it doesn't. No, a plea deal doesn't require trying of facts, a trial does. To reach the conclusion that cohen was innocent a trial and evidence would have been required... by accepting a plea agreement cohen admitted his guilt and stated in court...

Re: Today in Trump's new term as President

Cohen pled guilty to two crimes that he did not commit and could not commit. Sophistry at it's finest. Your conclusory statement is wrong on it's face. Lawschool 101... you can't plead guilty to a crime you can't commit. But here’s the problem...paying off Stormy for an NDA is not a campaign expend...

Re: Today in Trump's new term as President

The "campaign finance violations" that he plead guilty to, are not crimes. Incorrect. Cohen violated federal campaign finance laws in two different ways: (1) He violated the long-standing ban on corporate political contributions under the Tillman Act of 1907 and (2) he violated the personal contrib...

Re: Today in Trump's new term as President

Did you forget or did you not notice that Cohen punked Lanny Davis and CNN in a brilliant move? And did you forget or did you not notice that the crimes Cohen pleaded to were not crimes? The prosecutors involved in the Cohen case hope they only get disbarred when this settles out. Not crimes? While...

Re: Today in Trump's new term as President

But nothing he is pleading to, happened after 2012. Was he, in hindsight, a poor choice for Trump to pick for a campaign manager? Absolutely!. But I doubt, he laid out all of his shenanigans, to Trump, before taking the job. But what does this have to do, with the "collusion", or the obstruction of...

Re: Today in Trump's new term as President

Yep, he lied about doing something that wasn't a crime. Lying to officials (federal statute 18 USC Section 1001) was the lesser of crimes he pled guilty to as part of a plea agreement. His lies enabled at least one suspect to escape US jurisdiction before they could be questioned and possibly charg...

Utah College teacher unsuccessfully tries to shame lawful carry of firearms in classroom

The University of Utah reassigned a graduate assistant after her syllabus restricted students with concealed guns to a ‘Second Amendment zone’ in violation of state law and campus policy. The university reacted quickly, even if more should have been done. https://www.sltrib.com/news/education/2018/0...
