"Where is the collusion? We have to find the collusion!"

'Approximately $30,000 in profit made, in 2014, for brokering the sale of a Birkin Bag, a highly coveted French handbag that retails for between $11,900 to $300,000, depending on the type of leather or animal skin used.'

Someone on Twitter reminded us that Timothy Geithner didn't pay a huge amount of taxes and was allowed to say it was a mistake.

Yes it is, Pin. And thanks for the furry tweet - it's been forwarded to quite a few NASA types. They're all loving it, by the way!!

That second film is like cloverfield set on the past, recall that one was overhyped.

I love this 4-D thing. It's thrilling. Which side is winning???

Michael (fpa P4F) ... Stop the Witch Hunt - Stop the Coup !

The death of Mollie Tibbetts in Iowa is a tragic loss that everyone can identify with: Having your child's life taken from them, violently, by a predator, before they have yet begun to experience a full and complete life.

The fact that she died at the hands of an illegal alien will benefit Pres. Trump's campaign for a Republican victory in the House and Senate mid-terms *much* more than the Manafort or Cohen convictions will hurt the Republicans, imho.

Just think of the possibilities for ads reminding voters of all the Dems calling for 'open borders' and 'abolish ICE', versus Trump's dedication to protect Americans, and to reduce the crime inflicted on innocent American citizens by illegal immigrants.

Cohen's and Manafort's trials won't resonate compared to a family losing a loved one - despite all the feverish dreams of the rabid Trump haters of the left.

Levin spent a good deal of time on the young woman's murder. She was 20 years old.... all the parents and the family's dedication to raising such a fine young person, only to have it stripped from them by a border jumping sexual psychopath.

She was the same age as my son. Had this happened to my own daughter (now 40), i think of what a different life our family would have without her, her Belgian family, and our beautiful grand babies.

i'm letting this sink in.

We learned PLENTY by Kate Steinle's murder. We learned that the FULL COMMIE LEFT has no morals, no scruples, and they like COMMIES ALWAYS do, will allow MILLLLIONS to die for their disturbed IDEOLOGY.

take his place then, fool. see how long you last there before you succumb to one of the following:

2) airborne bacteria festering due to efficient sanitation systems;
3) starvation and malnutrition;
4) being ransomed by a warlord for shits and giggles.

The one FB post I saw included the claim that since 1965, only one democrat has been convicted of a crime and served in prison. The numbers for Reps were about 200 and 35, respectively. That seems impressively false, but I don't have any numbers in front of me. When I went back for a screenshot, it had been removed.

If Late Night with David Letterman was still on with his bit Brush With Greatness I'd tell him about meeting the nephew of both Jeff and Steve Porcaro or the son of one and the nephew of the other...or whatever, in Nashville.

My slightly better story involved me and my grandma running into Dick Van Dyke in a bookstore in Cave Creek, AZ when he had his alcoholic tv movie beard.

So Cohen pleaded guilty to a crime in order to implicate PDJT? Lanny Davis' tweet sounds like he's trying to complete a circuit.

The absolute fucking state of this sensational media obsessed world.

Even if you did get Trump on campaign finance, which is Trumps worst case scenario, all it would amount to is a fine. Bernie recently got fined for violations, and in 2013, Obama campaign was fined over 375K for campaign finance violations totalling more than 1.7 Million. Bout 5 times what could possibly be accused of Trump.

I'm becoming so fucking numb to this oversensationalized bullshit...-Anon

So does PDJT get restitution for Cohen's overcharging, fraud and embezzling?

ia The Right Scoop:

“When the FEC wrote the regulation that says what constitutes campaign expenditures and what constitutes personal use, it rejected specifically the idea that a campaign expenditure was anything related to a campaign, and instead says it has to be something that exists only because of the campaign and solely for that reason.”

Professor Bradley Smith wrote about this in the Wall Street Journal in April.

Shortly before the 2016 election, one of President Trump’s lawyers, Michael Cohen, arranged a $130,000 payment to the porn star in return for silence about a 2006 affair she claimed to have had with Mr. Trump. (Both the president and Mr. Cohen have denied the affair; Mr. Trump has said he did not know of the payment to Ms. Daniels until this February.)

Not satisfied with an old-fashioned sex scandal—perhaps because the president seems impervious to that—some want to turn this into a violation of campaign-finance law. Trevor Potter, a former member of the Federal Election Commission told “60 Minutes” the payment was “a $130,000 in-kind contribution by Cohen to the Trump campaign, which is about $126,500 above what he’s allowed to give.” The FBI raided Mr. Cohen’s office, home and hotel room Monday. They reportedly seized records related to the payment and are investigating possible violations of campaign-finance laws.

But let’s remember a basic principle of such laws: Not everything that might benefit a candidate is a campaign expense.

Campaign-finance law aims to prevent corruption. For this reason, the FEC has a longstanding ban on “personal use” of campaign funds. Such use would give campaign contributions a material value beyond helping to elect the candidate—the essence of a bribe.

FEC regulations explain that the campaign cannot pay expenses that would exist “irrespective” of the campaign, even if it might help win election. At the same time, obligations that would not exist “but for” the campaign must be paid from campaign funds.

If paying hush money is a campaign expense, a candidate would be required to make that payment with campaign funds. How ironic, given that using campaign funds as hush money was one of the articles of impeachment in the Watergate scandal, which gave rise to modern campaign-finance law.

You know, the Obama administration threatened to prosecute parents for paying ransom for their kids who were kidnapped. Is the Justice Department now going after victims of blackmail?

Kevlar Kid

Cool, Pin.... i'd tell Dave about meeting one of the surviving sons of General Francisco "Pancho" Villa who visited my Abuelita in Sacramento CA.

He lived in Castro Valley CA.

He tracked down Granmaw because he'd found a letter from my Granpaw with a receipt for two stallions, the cost of persuading Villa against marrying the 14 year old girl, my Granpaw was planning to marry.

it was Villa's way of currying favor with locals by proposing to their daughters. he had a very unconventional view of domestic relationships.

Granpaw provided Villa with his personal mounts during the war and for racing before and after the 1st Revolution.

This all happened in the state of Chihuahua... Dad's side of the family. G-paw and G-maw were Tarahumara and Spanish mixed bloods. Very short people. :D

Everyone in the Republican Party is going to jail. Paul Manafort is going to jail. Michael Cohen is going to jail. Rep. Duncan Hunter might be going to jail. And of course, we already know that Michael Flynn and George Papadopoulos and Rick Gates are going to jail. Rep. Chris Collins might be going to jail too. Eric Greitens might be going to jail. I suppose Reps. Pat Meehan and Blake Farenthold probably aren’t going to jail, but they both had to resign from Congress after getting caught in some minor peccadilloes.

Any way you add it up, that’s a lot of corruption. You’d almost think it was a trend or something.

If there was any justice in the world every Democrat would already be in jail. IMO, there has never been a bigger bunch of criminals.
