Interesting tidbit from NBC's National Inquirer safe of secrets story:

Former Enquirer employees who spoke to the AP said that negative stories about Trump were dead on arrival dating back more than a decade when he starred on NBC’s reality show “The Apprentice.”
In 2010, at Cohen’s urging, the National Enquirer began promoting a potential Trump presidential candidacy, referring readers to a pro-Trump website Cohen helped create. With Cohen’s involvement, the publication began questioning President Barack Obama’s birthplace and American citizenship in print, an effort that Trump promoted for several years, former staffers said.
The Enquirer endorsed Trump for president in 2016, the first time it had ever officially backed a candidate. In the news pages, Trump’s coverage was so favorable that the New Yorker magazine said the Enquirer embraced him “with sycophantic fervor.”

The Trump/Cohen/Pecker shenanigans go back a long way! Now I know why Cohen was called The Fixer.

My take on the Manafort trial.

I think we can all agree this case is extraordinary, and the outcome will be a landmark decision. In spite of the judge’s personality quirks, I am choosing to believe he is not compromised. We now know he’s received threats; there are people out there trying to intimidate him. He’s keping the names of jurors sealed for their protection.

The jury. I’ve sat on a jury and know it can take awhile to process multiple counts. This case is complex with 400 pages of documents. I am choosing to believe that the jury members are aware of the importance of this case and are taking their responsibilities seriously, going through each charge and supporting testimony/documents individually. That can take some time. I would be concerned if they finish too quickly.

I expect a verdict on Tuesday, mixed verdict on the charges.
