Why didn’t they just take former Speaker of the House and Cannabis Entrepreneur John Boehner out for a glass or three of fine Merlot. I bet they could have worked out a better deal on the up and up.

Maybe they just really like industrial hemp. cough

Weird how suddenly all the Republicans in the country are sucking Putin’s dick so hard their ears disappeared. Used to be sayin ‘Rooshins!’ meant commies, nowadays it’s coconspirators and metro-sugar daddies. Nowadays AOC is Teh Socialism! And that scary shouty jewish guy Bernard Sandals? i think they want to give everyone The Healthcare! crazy right?

So Giuliani has the text messages proving that they were acting on behalf of the state department, and Parnas and Fruman were working for Giuliani… is this technically entrapment?

What, it’s not like an arm of the Federal government, having indirectly employed them to commit crimes through Giuliani, might be trying to get them out of the country. Oh, wait a minute… is it?

I’m sure this is just more proof that the deep state is out to get very fine patriotic entrepreneurs who support trump.

Obviously, this much smoke could not actually come from a fire, but rather dry ice conspicuously placed in hot water to simulate a fire. Obviously.

I’m leaning towards “skip bail” but I assume their passports are being held by the authorities. Of course if they can afford the $1million bail they can afford phony passports and a fishing trip out of Miami in the general direction of Cuba.

Good gracious, I saw it the other day. It was at an airport. That’s not weird. What’s weird is that College Park, MD was having its annual “College Park Day” at CGS, and the Trump helicopter was one of the aircraft on display. Not sure who gave the invite, who accepted it, or who on both ends thought it was a good idea, given that College Park is a blue-voting area in a very blue county. I’m thinking someone just wanted to figuratively thumb their nose at the attendees, because around here, Trump’s about as welcome as a greasy flatus at afternoon tea.

(I didn’t believe it when someone told me – black helicopter, ok sure, yeah so it’s got red stripes like on Trump’s airplane – wasn’t until the whole event ended and the 'copter took off that I saw the name emblazoned along the side)

Oh! The many possible thoughts going through their minds: When will we be convicted? After Trump leaves office? Didn’t Rudy guarantee pardons if we were ever caught? Will they be able to trace bail and legal fees back to our overseas friends? What will we tell our mistresses?
