They didn’t go in looking for drugs, I guess, but I think that they’ll find some.
And perhaps a black book kept for… is the orange one his only client?


Couldn’t happen to a nicer guy. SMH /s


Earlier this week Donald Trump was asked why his lawyer paid stormy Daniels $130,000. His response was “you’ll have to ask him.”

Looks like the FBI took him up on the offer.


Pure comedy… Still, it would be more funny if it wasn’t all so scary.


I’m buying a supply of Potassium Iodide. That Korea summit is going to be a giant fustercluck. Then Donny Dollhands is gonna start a war to wag the dog harder than ever… strange days.


Mueller referred it to the local prosecuter.

But, depending on what is found, he may refer certain materials back to Mueller.

I’m not getting my hopes up (much), but if his lawyer is as capable as some of the other clowns Trump surrounds himself with he may have forgotten to burn his, “Evil Plans with Donny” notebook.


This is good for Trump. The going has been getting tough lately.


Michael Cohen isn’t stupid. I’m sure his computer at work & home are secured with 4096 bit encryption software. I’ll bet he uses world class secured email too. He must have learned never to use a private email server! It could cost you the Presidency!


See? This just proves the FBI is totally biased or something!






"This is ridiculous. This is now getting ridiculous," said #BigOrangeManBaby, pointing to a "whole new level of unfairness."


“It’s total witch hunt,” the president said at the White House. “It’s an attack on our country in the true sense … what we all stand for.”

Uh huh. And what is it we all stand for these days?

The fucking narcissism of the orange bastard. A legal, warranted search for a criminal case based on an FBI referral is an attack on America now. Is the rule of law one of the things “we all stand for”? Fuck. Fuck fuck fuck fuck fuck. Sorry, not sure why this particular Turnip lexidiarrhea is getting to me so much.

I have a new favorite starship, the USS Discovery.
I could watch hours and hours of Discovery and her sister ship the USS Deposition without getting bored.
“To boldly go where no Presidential investigation has gone before…”


The US Attorney for NY who runs this office is a Trump appointee, a former Rudy Giuliani law partner & a max donor to Trump.

There must be some serious evidence to get this guy to approve a no knock warrant for Trump’s lawyer.


until Meuller is ready to indict Trump, nope don’t care anymore.

everything is crap until that happens.


Either he threw Cohen under the bus or he was confused and thought that the reporter was talking about Roy Cohn, who at his evil height could make these things go away with a sneer. Either way, loving it!


Your choice of course, but Legal Twitter seems to think this is a BFD.
