    The real problem here is if they do indict Trump and all of his cronies both ex and current.....and convict them, what do you do with them then? If you send them to Prison they will corrupt all of the inmates of the prison system, none of the current inmates deserve that kind of punishment, after all they may be murderers, serial killers, pedophiles etc but to be locked up with Trump FOR LIFE could only be considered "CRUEL AND UNUSUAL PUNISHMENT?? you couldn't do that to anyone!!

    Why is this monster still standing? Why is he still in the White House? Why haven't they invoked the 25th Amendment? Above and beyond all the other investigations, he is endangering America by the minute? He's INSANE. Clinically insane, and that is grounds for removal to prevent further danger and damage to the United States of America. It's in the Constitution, why aren't they using it?

    Giuliani is a fool to say that a lawyer can settle a case without the consent of the client whom the lawyer is settling the case for. Secondly, the lawyer cannot use the law firm funds to settle the case. These are fundamental law firm bookkeeping requirements that Giuliani either has to know or is mentally deficient.

    A pharmaceutical company can waste all of that money by sending it to President Trump's attorney for illegal use and I can't afford my medication. Perhaps these companies should lower their drug prices and quit wasting money on illegal practices.

    Are there any records as to where this money has been going.? Any checks being written.? Have there been wire transfers? Does Donald Trump have a whole lot of money all of a sudden? Poor Cohen,is so poverty-stricken, he had to take out a home equity loan. Ha ha ha

    Even if the Mueller investigation finds illegal/criminal activities done by Trump, the Republican base won't care. BTW, the Republican Party will NEVER allow Trump to be impeached, no matter what Muellerfinds. Look at Paul Ryan, Mark Meadows, Devan Nunes. THEY DON'T CARE. Hopefully the dude won't serve more than one term.

  • Captain 1985
    Captain 1985 Year ago

    Look folks, the Republican base does not care about DTs business activities verging on the unethical. They will never blame Trump. You have to give the Donald credit for knowing how to manipulate the media. The coal miners of WVA have not really gotten any benefit from Trump's "I love coal." Yet they love him for what he says.The "rust belt" loves Trump because he will bring back jobs. As the Carrier Air Conditioning employees said after 700 jobs went to Mexico. He (Trump) tried.
