I felt it was my duty to cover up his own dirty deeds," Cohen added.

Right, you are just saying this because you got nailed! Somehow I get the feeling that this is just the beginning and the first domino to fall!

"I felt it was my duty to cover up his own dirty deeds," Cohen added.

'...his own dirty deeds'. And dozens of millions of Americans still think Trump's their political messiah.

"It was my own weakness and a blind loyalty to this man that led me to choose a path of darkness over light,"

Like Trump and other criminals, Cohen's using the 'otherguy's responsible' defense. He did the crime for his crime boss, now he's doing the time.

National Enquirer tabloid newspaper

Trump backed by the National Enquirer. Its readers believe stories about alien abductions - and that Trump is a political messiah. And he's not a criminal. Nor are Don Jr., Ivanka, Jared...

He got busted for tax fraud and congress has a fund for payments to people ho threaten to sue. Obama offered his preacher $150,000 to stop his jibber jabber. There ain’t no story.

One wonders what it feels like to wake up knowing another man has been imprisoned for your crimes. But the message the judge sent should give Trump pause: this is anything but "small peanuts," as Trump termed it yesterday.

Still, I feel this is a red herring to distract the Trump team from the more ominous Russia investigation. Mueller is calculating with the info he releases and its timing. The decision to proceed with election law violations while remaining mum on the Russian connection is not a sign that Trump is in the clear; it's precisely the opposite.

Tony Podesta will be joining you soon, Mr Cohen.

Cohen needs to sit for awhile. The excuse that he was loyal and just followed orders from the White House doesn’t cut it. Unless we punish people who fail to take a stand against Trump believing they are being loyal or are just following orders, we are just empowering those around Trump to continue to do his dirty work. People need to say “No” to wrongdoing from the outset. If I were judge, Cohen would sit in jail for the maximum time allowed by law.

As a billionaire narcissist who has never had to face adversity, was given everything, and spent a lifetime surrounded by yes men, I would imagine it feels like ‘he did what he should have done’.

When the Soviet era 'the otherguys are worse' claim is made, it indicates posters (in this case a Trump supporter/anti-'westerner') canNOT find a way to defend Trump, nor their position.

Face it Trump supporters/anti-'westerners': Trump's a thug. Look at the global leaders he does business with, all global thugs, all pushing for greater control over the world - and especially oil and gas.

Love how liberals are prematurely calling the President a criminal without any evidence or tangible evidence. Cohen is a creep and a disgrace as a lawyer, but Trump as a businessman and him doing questionable business dealings is not unusual. If you want to label the President as a criminal then I submit to you virtually every politician in Washington is then by default a criminal, the only difference they all get a pass to do what they do.

It seems to me, and just about everyone else who is watching this unfold, that quite a lot of evidence is mounting.

In the Manhattan courtroom, Cohen told U.S. District Judge William Pauley that "blind loyalty" led him to cover up for Trump's "dirty deeds."

Sure, it had nothing to do with the hundreds of thousands of dollars he paid you during the 12 years you worked for him, not to mention the generous income you received from Russian moguls. You defended a man who said there are bad people on both sides after Charlottesville. You, a Jew, worked for a white nationalist scumbag who refused to condemn anti-semitism. Have fun in prison.

False equivalence.

However, remember that the Constitution of the United States clearly states that a sitting president can be impeached for non-criminal offenses, specifically "high crimes and misdemeanors". "High" meaning an abuse of the "high" office of the presidency to subvert the Constitution and the operation of democratic institutions for political gain. This is what brought Nixon down, not criminal charges.

You may squawk all you want about "liberals" and "the left" and "Dems". That's all irrelevant. It's looking more and more evident that Trump has used the office to obstruct justice (at the least) to hide whatever other corruption lurks beneath the surface.

Time will tell. And I can tell you and your cult leader are nervous about that.

https://www.politico.com/blogs/under-the-radar/2018/07/11/brett-kavanaugh-president-indicted-709641

Kavanaugh's allies note that the 2009 Minnesota Law Review article he wrote addressing such subjects advocates for a congressional statute that would exempt the president from civil suits while in office, as well as immunizing him from criminal investigation and prosecution. He does use some pretty strong language about the prospect of a criminal trial of a sitting president, saying it would "cripple the federal government"—an assessment that one could imagine leading a Supreme Court justice to step in to avert such a prospect.

However, Kavanaugh's supporters observe that by backing a law to provide such immunity, he was implicitly accepting that it could not be found in the Constitution or existing law.

for non-criminal offenses, specifically "high crimes and misdemeanors". "High" meaning an abuse of the "high" office of the presidency to subvert the Constitution and the operation of democratic institutions for political gain. This is what brought Nixon down, not criminal charges.

So far there is nothing that would tie Trump to any crime that would be considered high crimes and misdemeanors.

You may squawk all you want about "liberals" and "the left" and "Dems". That's all irrelevant.

Trust me, I don’t. Equally liberals can twist and contort as much as they want, doesn’t matter, they still don’t have a leg to stand on and they need to stop salivating all over the place because they always seem to bite off more then they can chew.

It's looking more and more evident that Trump has used the office to obstruct justice (at the least) to hide whatever other corruption lurks beneath the surface.

I doubt it, so far there is nothing that would remotely indicate that and least not to the level that the President would need to be removed from office.

Time will tell. And I can tell you and your cult leader are nervous about that.

Actually, no. The President doesn’t seem nervous at all, doesn’t need to be. I know liberals WANT conservatives to feel nervous, but that’s not the case, it’s the. Exit opposite and that’s knowing the President has the Senate. Lol

Good to see his last minute telling of things partisan people want to hear didn’t save him from jail for his personal crimes.

A lesson for others who might think cooperation with Mueller by making things up is going to help them. It won’t.

The person that compulsively references liberals, Dems, and the left is claiming they don't. Apparently, that person cannot read their own posts. Too funny!

Trump and his follower's are clearly nervous, as evidenced by their increasingly frantic bloviations, deflections, and obfuscations.

This is so so much fun to watch!

You are so off base here you aren't even playing baseball anymore. I do admire you sticking by the conspiracy theory that Cohen was making things up despite the fact that that could not be correct.

Cohen was punished for failing to cooperate with the prosecutors in the Southern District of New York, which has zero to do with his cooperation with Mueller. I'll type a little more slowly so you can understand: Nobody accused Cohen of making things up in his cooperation.

Lets keep things grounded in reality, as difficult as that is for conspiracy theory peddling conservatibes.

Cant argue there, weakness comes out of greed and Cohen and his former boss have plenty of both.

I suggest putting in a revolving door in that prison, by the time Cohen is out, Trump should be ready to go in. Along with a few dozen others....

Might want to reread the list of personal crimes he admitted to they don’t involve Trump. What he said he did with Trump wouldn’t even be a crime at all if he didn’t plead guilty to it.

Speaking for myself, that's nothing new. Since first reading stories about Trump, who's long been a tabloid darling, decades ago I've yet to find one thing positive to say about him. He's been a lowlife, privileged class thug all his life.

Leopards and spots, after all.

Yes it really is. Tell me another instance of a president firing an FBI director for an investigation involving foreign interference in that president's election campaign. Or a president using his bully pulpit Twitter account to discredit said investigation. Or a president publicly dangling a pardon for a suspect on trial who is also serving as a witness. Or a president receiving information from that suspect about said trial after a plea bargain has been agreed to. These things are called obstruction of justice and witness tampering by the highest elected public servant of the American people.

Tell me who else has done this.

--However, remember that the Constitution of the United States clearly states that a sitting president can be impeached 

Not really....

You left off the last part of my sentence: for non-criminal offenses, specifically "high crimes and misdemeanors". 

Your report on Kavanaugh regards civil suits and criminal investigations. That is different from what the Constitution means by "high crimes and misdemeanors". Or perhaps you'd like to take that up with the founding fathers.

Ok and then?

Nothing really matters, anyone can see. Nothing really matters. Nothing really matters to me . . .

Tell me of a time when an FBI director was selfish and playing both sides of the political fence?

Name me a time where president was being investigated by 17 democrat lawyers? Name me a Time where you had the head of the IRS plead the fifth, audit dozens of high profile conservative donors to illegally to take them out the 2012 election and not suffer any repercussions from it, need me an attorney general That was held in contempt. Name me a time where anyone who could hide a hard drive server in a restroom of a restaurant destroyed the hard drives and use bleach bit to cover up the evidence. All of these things were called obstruction in yet for some reason the corrupt FBI seems to gloss over it

*You left off the last part of my sentence: *for non-criminal offenses, specifically "high crimes and misdemeanors". 

That’s because using your personal money to pay off the field porn star doesn’t amount to High crimes and misdemeanors and Mueller knows that otherwise her would have charge the President a long time ago.

Your report on Kavanaugh regards civil suits and criminal investigations. That is different from what the Constitution means by "high crimes and misdemeanors". Or perhaps you'd like to take that up with the founding fathers.

No, it is exactly as I said, I know Mueller is trying to find whatever he can, but it’s not panning out that way and I’m afraid to say at least a report that it looks like the Democrats are just not going to get their wish that this president is going to be drummed out of office. You cannot in date a sitting president, not while he is in office. And the Senate won’t remove him. These people hate the president so much, if that was something I was smoking gun at where they could nail the president with, it would’ve already been done and they know it, but I understand the Democrats are trying to keep a sliver of hope alive.

Dodges the question again and cites previously refuted Kremlin-authored conspiracy theories.

17 Democratic lawyers - what pure bunk - Mueller was a Republican when Donnie was a New York Liberal praising Hillary...

In 2012, as Obama was running for re-election, Trump called Clinton “terrific” again in an interview with Fox News, saying she performed well as Secretary of State.

“Hillary Clinton I think is a terrific woman,” he told Greta Van Susteren. “I am biased because I have known her for years. I live in New York. She lives in New York. I really like her and her husband both a lot. I think she really works hard. And I think, again, she’s given an agenda, it is not all of her, but I think she really works hard and I think she does a good job. I like her.

And on Fox and Friends on Wednesday, Trump explained why he donated to Clinton’s campaigns.

“I’m a businessman. I contribute to everybody,” Trump said. “When I needed Hillary, she was there. If I say ‘go to my wedding,’ they go to my wedding.”

I guess the weddings in between porn star flings...

Blacklabel - one thing that you may not understand about the American criminal justice system is that you can only be charged with things that are crimes. You cannot plead guilty to something that is not a crime.

campaign finance violations are a (civil) crime. If you are willing to say that by giving $2 to a guy at the train station is a violation of that law and plead guilty to it, no one will stop you. There is no judge to say that actually what you did is perfectly legal if you say all by yourself it’s a crime.

Do you really think mueller will tell Cohen, hey dummy what you did isn’t criminal? People who interviewed Flynn said he didn’t lie. Yet Mueller allowed him to plead guilty to lying anyway, right?

Trump better be glad you're not his lawyer....

All of these admissions, as the Judge presiding over the case, William H. Pauley III, said in court Tuesday, rendered Cohen’s actions a felony: he knew he was breaking the law — specifically the Federal Election Act, which regulates money in politics — and he did it anyway. At the direction of Individual #1.

Do you really think mueller will tell Cohen, hey dummy what you did isn’t criminal? People who interviewed Flynn said he didn’t lie. Yet Mueller allowed him to plead guilty to lying anyway, right?

Legal experts were particularly baffled by the breezy way in which Trump said campaign finance violations weren’t a crime, highlighting the lack of knowledge it seems to show about the legal system as a whole. There’s no way a federal judge would let someone plea to something that wasn’t a crime,” said Renato Mariotti, a former federal prosecutor. “That’s not how it works.”

Added Hasen: “It’s not only non accurate, it’s nonsensical. Why would you plead guilty to a crime that carries five years in jail if it was not a crime?

In an interview with Reuters on Tuesday, Trump denied the payments to the women were campaign contributions. "If it were, it's only civil, and even if it's only civil, there was no violation based on what we did," Trump said.

What a brilliant legal mind....he Better Call Saul quick.....

Any collusion yet?

You know what's in Mueller's safe?

Trump is toast....

Obviously this isn't true, because Cohen is going to prison.

Do you really think mueller will tell Cohen, hey dummy what you did isn’t criminal?

So, Mueller duped Cohen into pleading guilty, and the judge approved the guilty knowing what Cohen did wasn't actually a crime? Hahahaha hahahaha fascinating theory, Black. Where'd you study law, Trump University?

Black, that's only if done "unknowingly and unwittedly," as in Obama's case - a "Whoops!" situation that was corrected immediately and the fine paid.

Compare that to Trump's situation. How many versions of mutually exclusive excuses has he given for what can only be considered bribery in relation to his campaign? (Correct answer: a lot, none of which are truthful.)

Still, Trump's bimbos are the least of his emerging problems. Upcoming is to keep his sons out of jail; next, to do the same for himself.

Ahhhh, now I get it. These two nut jobs are Democrat boot licking Republicans, well this clarifies everything.

Because as always liberals will believe only liberal sources, so much for them being open minded and resistent to facts. Smh

Face it Trump supporters/anti-'westerners': Trump's a thug. Look at the **global leaders he does business with, all global thugs, all pushing for greater control over the world - and especially oil and gas.**

The people who think that Trump is going to get impeached are the same people that have been whining for the last two years and said Trump had zero chance of winning. They have zero credibility.

I couldn't agree more. What Dems don't understand is that criminals plead guilty to prosecutors not judges.

Libs just don't understand math, which is why they can't accept that Mueller only horses democrats and supporters thereof:

*information shows that 13 of the 17 members of Mueller's team have previously registered as Democrats, while four had no affiliation or their affiliation could not be found.*

*Nine of the 17 made political donations to Democrats, their contributions totaling more than $57,000. *The majority came from one person, who also contributed to Republicans.

Why can't the left understand that is conservatibes have the Mueller Channel that broadcasts everything Mueller does? Us conservatives have a direct line into Mueller's thinking, which is why we know he is subservient to the Dems. Smh.

Ahhhh, now I get it. These two nut jobs are Democrat boot licking Republicans, well this clarifies everything.

Of course they are. It was on that episode from the Mueller Channel.

His forked toungue is undermining the President.

Totally. Libs can't wrap their heads around the fact that every president deserves a Dept of Justice that eschews the law in support of the president. It's common sense.

Trump isn’t doing anything different with these people than the other Presidents.

Damn straight. Every other president has had direct links to his global business empire just like Trump. ROFL!

"The Mueller investigation represents a threat to Trump's presidency. Mueller, who also is examining whether the president has unlawfully sought to obstruct the probe, has secured guilty pleas from several former Trump aides including his former campaign chairman and national security adviser"

Mueller is on a Which Hunt. "Which Trump associate will I prosecute next?"

Can't argue that. It's not as if Mueller's secured convictions or pleas from any of Trump's associates yet. HAR!
