1. Incorrect. Cohen presented the Chump Organization with $400,000+ in fake invoices in Feb. 2017

 

The purpose was to be reimbursed for the payoffs to women. The Trump Organization paid those invoices in Feb. 2017 WHEN HE WAS A SITTING PRESIDENT !!!!

3. Ya. Ok..TPain's point is in "committing crimes as a civilian"

 

This opens the door to prosecution.
Trump & others have claimed "You can't indict a sitting Pres for crimes committed as Pres."

TPain's statement says that argument is now moot since crimes were committed before he was Pres".

That's the specific area he is referring to.

4. Yes, it was a republican CRIME perpetrated specifically to influence the election

and must have been somewhat of a factor for installing the illegitimate republican occupant of the White House, with his draft-dodger, debt-ridden, casino-hustling background all over the place. repubes didn't give a shit then, and they don't give a shit about America now.

7. The crime was the conspiracy to make the payment

That occurred before the election.

8. Nope. Up until the moment that Donald the Conald reimbursed Cohen, only Cohen had committed

 

A crime. There must be consideration on Donald the Conaldís part to implicate him. When he paid Cohenís fake invoices, consideration was formally acknowledged. This reimbursement happened in Feb. 2017 when Donald the Conald was a sitting president. That meets the threshold of a high crime and misdemeanor because the reimbursement happened while he was a sitting president. Tea Pain was factually inaccurate. This was not a crime committed when Donald the Conald was a civilian.

2. I think what he is getting at

Is that the "question" about indicting a sitting President is predicated upon the notion that the "crime" was committed while he was President, not prior to taking office. This is an entirely different scenario, that the crime was committed prior to taking office. Further, the repayment was after he took office, which boxes them in to crimes before taking office and after.

Bottom line, there's no way out for Trump. They can seal indictments and have them waiting for him for when he is no longer President.

6. That is it exactly. Trump is a cornered mob rat & there's no way out of this..

 

Guess he could flee the country, but the eyes of the world will always know his every move.

I am waiting for the moment all Trump properties are siezed & the entire smug, arrogant Trump Crime Family is stripped of everything, in prison and the Trump Brand is buried.

5. QUESTION: If the president has to be involved in civil legal proceedings why can't the be involved

... in criminal legal proceedings.

Seems like this question was asked and answered with Clinton no?
