1. Where I grew up, that is called a "Shake Down"

Trump is threatening the Georgia SOS and lawyer with "criminal consequences."

Trump needs to be arrested and charged with extortion.

2. Trump is such a dumb ass

He can't even do simple math. He needs 12,780 votes to overcome PE Biden's win in Georgia.

Of course, his attempted shakedown is far more important.

Can't put it anymore succinct.

A threat to damage someone’s career qualifies as extortion, but I agree with @danielsgoldman
, this sounds like mob talk. Incredible insight into how this President has operated from the Oval Office for the last 4 years. It’s past time for accountability.

12. Just more reasons the upcoming GA runoff will go Democrat

Because of trump. He's desperately trying to claim its being corrupted by Democrats, while he's trying to corrupt it will make more Americans in GA come out to vote for Democrats over corrupt republicans. They should now play this tape around the clock on GA airwaves.

13. This is classic trump according to Michael Cohen.

He will not TELL you what to do but puts shit in the atmosphere. "Have they replaced the inner parts of the machines with other parts?....are you sure Ryan?"

The fucker is so criminal!

15. What I found interesting was that he sounded like he was

at one of his rallies, like he was making sound bites for his base. He didn’t care if he was recorded or not. It was like he was taking advantage of an interview to spew his crap, not caring that he was committing a crime at the same time.

18. None of this matters

if there are no consequences. Trump & the Republicans continue this corruption because they have not been held accountable. They have been allowed to get away with this corruption without any consequences. If the Dems don't do anything, this corruption will continue but much worse!

20. Does anyone else get physically ill listening to tRump? Not like really barfing but just nauseous.

I don't think I have been LITERALLY so SICK of hearing someone lie in my life.

Well guess since he's somewhere around 30 thousand or more lies, it's probably just over exposure.

21. I can only take a minute or two without barfing.

I avoid the actual sound and video clips and read the transcripts. Have done so for months now.
