HOLY SHIT! did anybody just hear Cohen's tape of Trump on MSNBC?

Trump and Cohen were talking about spending $150,000 to set up
an account to give to "our friend David" (Pecker??) and that Cohen
should talk with Trump's CFO Weisselberg about getting the money.

But it also suggests dominoes that have yet to fall, and among those dominoes is one potentially huge one: Allen Weisselberg.

When Cohen released that tape of him and Trump talking about buying back the rights to McDougal’s story from AMI, Cohen mentioned how he had consulted with Weisselberg, the chief financial officer of the Trump Organization, about how to make it happen.

“I need to open up a company for the transfer of all of that info regarding our friend, David [Pecker], you know, so that — I’m going to do that right away,” Cohen said, adding, “I’ve spoken to Allen Weisselberg about how to set the whole thing up with …” before being interrupted.

Cohen then invoked Weisselberg again: “So I’m all over that. And I spoke to Allen about it, when it comes time for the financing, which will be. …”

1. That tape has been out for months, I think I first heard it last summer.

But now that Cohen is singing like a nightingale it's that much more significant.

4. Would all this if about ANY democrat mean the end of their career

overnight, of course.

But what it will take to take down the traitor is the election meddling, since they wont indict no matter what.

8. An oldie but GOODY tape, Botany!!! The second I heard it, I googled "Allen Weisselberg" and went

OH HOLY SHIT!!!

CFO of Trump Org, had been there since the days of Fred??!?

He was subsequently granted immunity - so reports say - and again, OH HOLY SHIT!!!

I do wonder why Cohen found it necessary to include Weisselberg’s last name...if he had just said “Allen”, who would know who that was? - I guess Cohen and trump knew lots of “Allen”s, eh?

But yeah, this Weisselberg mention ripped the lid off all the sloppily-hidden TRUMP ORG SECRETS!!

Glorious! I LOVE THIS TAPE!!

9. Ok so Trump and his lawyer had illegal pay off for bribes and hush money that was run through ..

... a shell corporation in order to effect a national election but really what about HRC's emails.

I guess I missed that tape last summer ... my bad ... but Good God in Butter just keeping up with Trump's
crimes is a 24/7 operation.

12. Truck

I heard the tape. Was wondering if anyone else, noticed the comment about someone 'getting hit by a truck"? Maybe my ears were playing tricks again.

13. Weisselberg knows where the bodies are buried (financially speaking).

Mueller don't need no stinkin' tax rethurns if he has Weisselberg singing, and from everything I've heard up to this point, he's been cooperating for well over a month now.

I just hope the feds have afforded people like Cohen and Weisselberg with security protection, because one the most memorable scenes from The Untouchables movie was when Capone's assassin put the hit on Capone's bag man (accountant) in that elevator in the federal building.

16. Miami Herald: Former ally David Pecker flips, and Trump probably flips out

https://www.miamiherald.com/opinion/opn-columns-blogs/carl-hiaasen/article223089185.html

Last week, the paper’s parent company, America Media Inc., officially confessed to what the Wall Street Journal reported before the 2016 election: The Enquirer paid $150,000 to former Playboy centerfold Karen McDougal to buy and then bury her allegation of an affair with Trump in 2006-2007.


AMI further admitted that its principal purpose in making the payment was to suppress the woman’s story to prevent it from influencing the election,” stated prosecutors in the Southern District of New York.


Trump is – or had been – close pals with AMI chief David Pecker, who’d pushed Trump for years to run for the White House, and then used the Enquirer to promote his candidacy.


To avoid being charged with campaign-law violations, Pecker flipped three months ago and began cooperating with the feds. He corroborated detailed information offered by former Trump lawyer Michael Cohen, now bound for prison.
