Trump has been untouchable with his base; russia, porn stars, kids banking deals using his presidency, etc. What will make him lose a substantial swath of his base are high gas prices. Russia doesn't touch their lives, gas prices will bite. Just wait...

It was all a farce to begin with. Companies are not re-investing except in their shareholders. How many times do we have to try trickle-down economics before we figure out it doesn’t work.

Dots starting to get connected: Cohen took a 500k payment from a sanctioned Russian Oligarch tired to Putin. The same Russian was picked up at the airport a month back and questioned by Mueller.

Either way WTF is Trump's lawyer doing taking half a million bucks into his shell company from the Russians? On top of that there was corporate money (AT & T)  flowing into this slush fund as well.

I'm sure this is all totally benign. I mean Cohen only had 16 cell phones,which is also totally normal.

Trump would do better representing himself. I mean, what the hell is going on with Giuliani? I loved watching Hannity's reaction to that.

I'm tellin ya, the Feds were wiretapping the Russians & in the midst of the investigation the Trump teams stumbled into the taps. The Feds weren't seeking the Trumps, they appeared into it.

I agree.

That's essentially what other intelligence agencies around the world reported to our country. They were alarmed at how often Trump came up.

Yeah, it's looking that way. I started to think the Stormy Daniels thing was a small piece to a bigger puzzle, now its tying together (TBH I thought she was gonna be the 'Pee Tape Video', just that the details of 'russian hookers' got mixed up in a whisper down the line kinda way).  Anyway, $500,000 from Russian money I would think becomes a very serious & concerning campaign & election violation. Plus, I think the $500K is again, a small piece. As they're just singling out Cohen. Has Kushner, Flynn, Jr received money as well? Were wire transfers with Trumps & Russians common?  Entirely possible, I think they were trying to get Cohen to flip, he refused, so now they're dropping this evidence against him, so now he's shitting his pants facing years in prison.

Funny, he probably thought the Feds couldn't find it cause it all was handled on his burner phone.

Trump could easily sign an executive order to ban stock buybacks. He could call the big fast food companies in and ask, publicy, for them to lower their franchise fees for franchises that give their employees raises. These are things Trump could do.

He's also pissing off allies left and right...he's also racking up massive fiscal deficits (so much for all those fiscally responsible conservatives)...

Also, as was already mentioned, the tax cuts are a farce...they helped an extreme minority of people. There's a reason the Republicans aren't talking about it anymore, it's because it's not helping them.

Now he pissed off a country that is actually a threat. NK was never a real threat...they can barely feed their own people. Iran is a real threat. Also...from what I read, it was the Chinese that convinced NK to back down. Not Trump.

No one is scared of the fat, old man.
