They're a bunch of bent bastards, probably sharing to loot.
Any other questions?
Russia got him by the balls, absolutely
Trump puts the brakes on new Russian sanctions, reversing Haley’s announcement
Forget the sanctions, his genitalia are at stake.
So.... has David Dennison had a third outing from that LLC in Delaware ?
The smoking gun.
Report about Michael Cohen’s secret trip to Prague corroborates key Steele dossier claim
What kind of crappy human being do you have to be, to have to hire this guy to do nothing else other than to go around the world, cleaning up your mess?
As Stephen Colbert out it: "Pro tip for Trump - when your lawyer needs a lawyer, you need a lawyer."
I'm not sure about that. I did read a good piece on the journalistic code used in sourcing such stories - it was in Lawfare, I think, by Benjamin Wittes I think (who coincidentally is a friend of Comey's who's been involved in some of his doings) - explaining what all the "sources close to the investigation..." and so an actually mean.
It's been noted that the Mueller team itself seems to be completely immune to leaking, so stuff that comes out about the enquiry in most cases probably comes from lawyers, or subjects of the investigation, who've been asked about things that reveal a little of Mueller's hand.
So, it seems likely that the most likely source for this - "according to two sources familiar with the matter" - are Cohen himself or people close to him or his lawyers, and they may have their own reason for putting something possibly misleading out for their own reasons.
I found that article:
How to Read a News Story About an Investigation: Eight Tips on Who Is Saying What
It's quite useful if you think you're going to be spending much of the rest of your life reading about this stuff!
I'll wait for the film which will be like All the Presidents Men only with more prostitutes....and wee
Yes, but it is possible he was there. Here's his passport.
This Is The Inside Of Trump’s Lawyer’s Passport
"All the President's Semen"?
Nah. That man screams impotence.
"Rain Man 2 - This time it's golden"

Stormy Daniels reveals sketch of man who allegedly threatened her
Guy on the right is Matthew Calamari, Jr. Works in Security for Trump. His dad, Matthew Calamari Sr., is head of security for Trump Organisation. Incident was 7 years ago.
Oh yeah, I think it's perfectly likely he was there, but I don't think that story shows convincingly that he was.
Who would know that Mueller would know that, or was asking about that?
Sounds like a damp squid to me.
Everyone seems to have missed the 2 sex gurus in a Thai prison who want to swap info info on Trump for release.
Probably crap but they are associated with a bunch of powerful Russians.
I thought they wanted to avoid deportation back to Byelorus, where if there's any shred of truth in their account, they'll probably get offed pretty swiftly.
And they couldn't get the date right on the White House statement of condolences for Barbara Bush.
Trump is definitely off the hook for that one, that tribute to Bush's work promoting literacy doesn't have nearly enough errors or self-promotion to have been written by the president.
It seems like when Trump's tweets are written by somebody else, they can't bring themselves to introduce deliberate spelling or grammatical errors, but they mimic his Style by capitalising Random Words.
In the grand scheme of the evil that Trump is doing and enabling with the GOP it is a tiny, superficial thing, but almost everything the White House now does is shit. Their statements are full of spelling mistakes, bad grammar, the wrong names of people and places, and the website is rubbish.
If Trump weren't so charming and debonair I don't know if I could cope!
Not sure where to put this, but since the GOP have been at one with the Trump Administration since day one, this thread will do.
This is the Republican Governor of the Show Me state.
The horrifying sexual misconduct allegations against Missouri Gov. Eric Greitens, explained
Apparently Trump is claiming that he was responsible for the success of the Winter Olympics in RoK.
I heard a radio thing on him the other day, in which it was said that his plan in running for president was to become "the most famous man in the world."
He's certainly achieved that - sorry Justin Bieber - but does he really want to run a government?
I doubt it.
**wrong thread** moved reply to syria thread.
They all lie about everything all the time.
EDIT: (Orphaned reply to Kuchinich taking cash to speak in favour of Assad.)
Many people on here -and in the wider international left - had Kucinich down as a super-hero for many many years.
It's the greed of it too. GRAB GRAB GRAB GRAB ME ME ME ME ME ME. I can't imagine he needs that money in any real sense, I bet he has a hugely comfortable life.
It's a fucking racket.
I must be honest though, mine was a reflexive comment (which I stand by) without knowing anything about Kuchinich himself! I see he opposed the Iraq War, that's a good thing to oppose. He's now gone quite pro-Trump according to his Wikipedia, though he's also rated as "far left" in American political terms. . .
He's not a crook, of course. . .
