I'm having trouble distinguishing the legal strategy from Trump's obstruction

other than the hilarity over Guiliani's remarks on Hannity and Fox and Friends, that is.

Anyone else??

Guiliani says the Campaign wasn't involved -- BUT -- there's this

11:51 4/8/2018
5 Days After Trump Lawyer Paid Adult Film Star $130,000, Trump Org Billed Trump Campaign $129,999.72


Five days after a lawyer for Donald Trumpís lawyer paid $130,000 to adult film star Stormy Daniels allegedly in exchange for her silence about a year-long affair with Trump, the company owned by Donald Trump billed his campaign a series of transactions that added up to exactly $129,999.72 ó just 28 cents short of the payment made to Daniels.

The anomaly has gone viral online and raised questions about whether Trumpí s campaign received an illegal campaign contribution related to the alleged payment to Daniels. Trumpís longtime lawyer, Michael Cohen, has since admitted to making the payment to Daniels, but said it came from his own money and had no connection to Donald Trumpís campaign, ABC News reported.

But there are now growing concerns that the payment to Stormy Daniels amounts to an illegal campaign contribution to Donald Trump. The nonpartisan watchdog group Common Cause made a complaint to the Justice Department and the Federal Election Commission claiming that the payment amounted to an in-kind donation to Donald Trumpís campaign, but was not reported.

... The finding is far from ironclad proof that Donald Trump was involved in paying off Stormy Daniels. For one, there were other payments made during that same time frame, though it was these exact five payments, all made from Trumpís campaign to his Trump-owned properties, that added up to $129,999.72. There is still no clear path of how that money may have been involved with the hush money payout, and Michael Cohen had said publicly that he paid out of his own pocket, with no reimbursement from Trump.


Is Trump lying about the hush money?

@SethAbramson: How damn transparent can these people be?? (Trump & Deripaska)

According to Wikipedia, "RUSAL is the world's second largest aluminium company by primary production output (as of 2016)

Rusal's head is Oleg Deripaska, a likely Trump co-conspirator. Late last year it was reported he'd step down and cash out, right when Rusal sanctions were announced. Now we hear Trump will give Rusal a pass and Deripaska won't step down. How damn transparent can these people be?

2/ Understand that Deripaska's announcement he'd step down preceded Trump's surprise announcement of Rusal sanctions by a week, suggesting he had advance notice. Guess how many days before the announcement Rusal wouldn't be sanctioned Deripaska decided to stay at Rusal?

3/ And don't tell me Russia sanctions policy under this administration isn't coming directly from the president, as we know for certain it *is*. Trump is deciding who will and will not be covered by his sanctions and he is doing it in a way that protects him in the Russia probe.

Bad Lip Reading: Zuckerberg testifies before Congress

This should exonerate Joy Reid --

Please spread it far and wide -- add it to every Joy Reid DU thread; share on FB if you go there; retweet -- whatever. Let's shut this down.

Cybersecurity expert working w/ Joy Reid on alleged hacking releases lengthy statement: "Five months ago, we found evidence Joy Reidís now-defunct blog ... was breached after a review of suspicious activity."

It was already posted here, but isn't getting much traffic

Something I don't understand about Guiliani representing Trump

His hands are pretty dirty in this whole debacle. Why is Mueller allowing him to represent Trump?

I hope it doesn't mean that Guiliani is NOT in Mueller's sites. That would be such a huge disappointment to me.

Any ideas??

John Oliver Bought Airtime During Hannity To Explain the Iran Nuclear Deal to Trump

Itís a double troll!

John Oliver spoke about the Iran nuclear deal on Last Week Tonight and how dissolving it would be a huge mistake on President Donald TrumpĎs part.

In an apparent effort to get through to him on this point, Oliver and his team bought ad space on the one primetime cable news show Trump is sure to watch Ė Sean HannityĎs.

The ever-popular Catheter Cowboy, whose character is a riff on the typical ads for older males which run so ubiquitously on Fox, will be returning to the airwaves in the D.C. area on Fox News during Hannity in the coming days in order to lecture the president on why he ought to stay in the Iran deal.

Full show:

Mad Dog PAC at it again, some more --

Here's the tweets' text, but the thing is the photo, so -- you gotta go there, sorry.

Is it time for the United States Senate Select Committee on Intelligence to call @DevinNunes to testify in the #TrumpRussiaCoverUp?


Why is the @GOP going along with him?

Scott Dworkin and SethAbramson on Guiliani -- lots of good stuff

Let me remind everyone Rudy Giuliani is likely under investigation by Mueller. So the fact he thinks he can serve as one of Trumpís attorneys is ludicrous. Heís directly linked to Putin, has worked extensively in Russia for years and is tied to folks in the Dossier. #TrumpResign

Photo: Rudy Giuliani with Russian Emin Agalarov. He's the son of Russian oligarch Aras Agalarov who's friends with Putin, did Miss Universe with Trump, hosted the launch of Trump Vodka in Moscow and helped setup the Don Jr Russian lawyer meeting in Trump Tower. #TrumpLeaks #AMJoy

Rudy Giuliani's former clients included:
-Russia's Alfa Bank-owned by van der Zwaan's Russian billionaire father-in-law
-Rosneft: the Russian oil company Carter Page met with

Photos/Doc: Here's Rudy Giuliani with the owners of Russia's Alfa Bank. Alex Van Der Zwaan's (who already pled guilty in Mueller's probe) father-in-law, Russian billionaire German Khan, is a co-owner. This is also the same bank with the alleged server in Trump Tower. #TrumpLeaks

So Trump has just hired, as his new attorney, an almost certain witness in the Mueller probe. That means he will be paying money to, and sharing his own confidential testimony with, a fellow Mueller witness. This is both Obstruction and Witness Tampering. But hey, who's counting?

2/ Understand what this allows Trump to do (or what he *thinks* it does): allows him to discuss the Russia case and the pre-election Clinton email hoaxes with Giuliani, synch up his testimony, then ensure Giuliani can't discuss those conversations with Mueller.
He's transparent.

Here's Rudy talking about the illegal leaks he received from the NYC FBI office. The best part is him saying "I expected this [the reopening of the Clinton case] to happen 3 or 4 weeks ago," which means he was briefed on the "new" emails almost immediately after McCabe and Comey.

And here are two lengthy posts of Seth Abramson info from the past -- very enlightening about Guiliani's many sins
