WikiLeaks

This is what the Washington Post <a href="https://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/2019/02/27/four-big-takeaways-michael-cohens-explosive-testimony/?noredirect=on"says:

Cohen alleges that in July of 2016, Trump held a phone call with longtime adviser Roger Stone, in which Stone informed him that a WikiLeaks dump of Hillary Clinton emails was coming, to which Trump said something like: “Wouldn’t that be great.”

Duh! Of course it would have been great if that had happened! I sure wish I could read what was in those emails that Hillary deleted. I bet it was a lot more than just yoga appointments.

But Stone was full of sh** because there never was a WikiLeaks dump of Hillary Clinton’s deleted emails. He was just passing on some unfounded rumors.

This is not collusion with Russia or Trump doing anything illegal, this is just Cohen recounting a private conversation in order to create the perception that Trump is guilty of something.

That the WaPo is reporting this as if it were grimly meaningful demonstrates again how our fakestream media is all about being anti-Trump.

  1. Nothing ground-breaking will come here. It will just end up polarizing the sides more: Democrats will claim this is proof of a corrupt administration that needs to be impeached and Republicans will say that Democrats are resorting to slimebags and criminals to attack the president.

  2. That black committee chairman sure is impressive. What would you say his IQ is, about 130?

  3. Right on all counts, Lion, but your average libtard wouldn’t understand this.

  4. This is rediculous! If I were Trump, I would have had this guy shot a long time ago.

  5. Cohen’s allegations sure are thin. He all but admits they have nothing on Trump. Kind of explains why the Dem house is gearing up for more investigations. The last I heard, Trump was polling 93% with Republicans and 52% overall with rising support among blacks, hispanics and women. If the Dems try to impeach him with weak sauce like that, the senate will slap it down and actually boost his chances for 2020.

  7. I’ve always wondered whether, at some point, someone in the FBI didn’t have the deleted emails. Or at least know where where they could get them. As we’ve since learned, a lot of FBI folks were with team Hillary.

  8. These guys are all so old — Stone, Cohen, Trump. Many laypeople confused Podesta’s hacked e-mails for Clinton’s — AFTER all of the reporting. Somewhere in the telephone game, Podesta’s e-mails could easily transmogrify into Clinton’s e-mails. Presumably it was after this phone call when Trump said, “Russia, if you’re listening…” (and after that public statement, Russia made its first attempt to hack Clinton’s private server.)

    This is not collusion with Russia or Trump doing anything illegal, this is just Cohen recounting a private conversation in order to create the perception that Trump is guilty of something.

    What would be collusion with Russia? We already know Don Jr., was eager to get “dirt” from the Russian state to help his campaign. Manafort worked for Trump for “free,” but Manafort doesn’t work for anyone for free; he was trying to get back in the good graces of Russian oligarchs. His work for the campaign could be viewed as an effective Russian contribution, making the Trump campaign (at the very least) an unwitting collaborator.

    • “What would be collusion with Russia? We already know Don Jr., was eager to get “dirt” from the Russian state to help his campaign.”

      This is called opposition research.

      • Don Jr. believed it was being gifted by people in the Russian government.

        It’s incompetent because it exposes the campaign to blackmail.

  9. Am I mistaken or was there not a single bit of new information in this entire day of hearings? It sounds like I’ve heard every accusation before.

  10. I watched part of it. It was a clown show. Trump’s allies Mark Meadows and Jim Jordan totally destroyed Cohen and his Clinton-provided lawyer Lanny Davis. In fact, it looks like Cohen committed more perjury DURING the hearing when he lied about seeking a job in the White House. He also revealed FARA violations (the same thing they went after Gen. Flynn and Manafort on). This circus helps the President.
    But as I was watching it I also felt that Cohen is only reluctantly going along with this because they (the anti-Trump Gestapo in the deep state) threatened his wife with 20 years in prison for co-signing some documents. This is partially Trump’s fault, he should have used his pardon powers early on with Gen. Flynn to show people under attack that he would protect them. Now they are terrified of the deep state’s viciousness.

    • I think the investigation is a witch hunt. But using his pardon powers before the investigation is complete is dangerously close to obstruction. It would backfire and the Dem House would vote to impeach leaving him in a weaker position. The best course is to sit on his hands while things play out and then pardon everyone.r.

      • I agree. If Trump pardoned anyone during the investigation, the Dems would call it obstruction and go ahead with the impeachment.

  11. Trump won’t get impeached because the real power in the DNC isn’t with the AOC/DSA crowd. It’s with the Pelosi/Woke Capital people.
    They know the Senate would slap down the case, and voters would wonder what all the fuss was about if Trump is innocent.

  12. O/t – For your Canuckistan readers courtesy of the news outlet in Meriprolestan:

    Prime Minister Trudope or Turdeau has been rocked by a scandal for taking bribes from a Quebecois company charged with corruption. He is called out to resign by a political rival.

    Ok, what, who's this again?

    • Who had Trudeau leaving office before Trump? Would any progressive had guessed that?
