We are definitely living in crazy times. It will be interesting to see what comes of the Muller investigation; seems like we are approaching the next inflection point.

This is the guy who is sentenced to report to jail soon right? For lying or something like that?

Yes. Pretty good incentive to tell the truth now rather than risk compounding his sentence.

Funny how the system works though.

This guy is going to jail for lying while the President of the United States lies publicly on a daily basis and the people calling Cohen a liar see no conflict here.

One guy is a dirty filthy liar while the other guy is a hero.

Go figure?

There is no figuring.  Blind worship!  He could shoot somebody in the head on television, and half of the voters would say he was being tough on crime or it was self-defence.  Cheers!

Trump has three types of supporters.

1) As in any cult, many followers tend to be blind to their leaders transgressions. You can feel sorry for those people. Bring on the KoolAid.

2) Then there are those who support Trump because they feel that he is better than the alternative. Those folks should check their moral compass now and again and take a close look at who they are supporting.

3) Then there are those many elected Republicans who are not are not blind followers and know better, but they’ve sold their souls to retain their power and position. They are a sad commentary on today’s ethics.

Is anyone here of the thinking that this whole Trump's ascendancy is just good old Karma at work to make him pay for his lifetime of sins?

We might see Trump org file for bankruptcy under the weight of the investigations, Trump's sons change their last name (Like that of Madoff) and an end to the criminal enterprise.

Trump’s best chance to stay out of jail is to get re-elected  :o

You have to think the trapdoor has sprung, and that Trump is now on his way out the building.
All those 'caught and killed' docs sitting in secret vaults are rapidly losing value, and Mueller is the only buyer left ;)

Before you guys get too giddy over Cohen's testimony, you should at least watch this exchange between Meadows and Cohen.  https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=ynH5rfoNQKg  Meadows has already referred the matter for criminal investigation.
