Last week was a week of legal deals.
The beginning ‘ deal’ worked out by Michael Cohen, where he admitted, under oath, in open court, that he broke election law under the orders of the President of the United States. That’s important.
But, the word of the week was IMMUNITY.
Two people long in the universe of Dolt45, received IMMUNITY.
The first was, David Pecker, publisher of the National Enquirer.
In a wild story, it seems as if Pecker had all these secrets inside of a safe. We do know that he was involved in the payoff to the Playboy Model McDougal, and later in the week, the story from a doorman at Trump Tower. Just how many times did the National Enquirer pay off people for Donald Trump?
A couple of stories about Pecker and his practices at the National Enquirer:
Pecker’s past practice puts POTUS in a pickle, precludes Pulitzer
Rachel Maddow looks back at how David Pecker programmed the National Enquirer to promote Donald Trump and trash Hillary Clinton through the 2016 campaign, though he is now reportedly cooperating with investigators in the Cohen case and maybe more.
Jeff Horwitz, reporter for the Associated Press, talks with Rachel Maddow about David Pecker’s practice at American Media Inc. of buying the rights to scandalous stories, including Donald Trump’s, and keeping them in a safe for use as bargaining leverage.
We don’t know how many times, but the Prosecutors know. Pecker flipped because doing what he did exposed the COMPANY to legal liability via the Prosecutor, and an indicted company, especially one trying to refinance it’s debt…well, the line of credit possibilities would dry up. So, it wasn’t too hard to see why he flipped. Pecker’s flipping also backs up the story that Michael Cohen told in open court. Pecker takes away from the convenient ‘ he said/ he said’, if it was just Cohen vs. Dolt45. But, it’s Cohen, Pecker, and probably Cohen AND Pecker’s TAPES vs. Dolt45.
But, the bombshell shoe that was dropped, was the revelation that Allen Weisselberg had been granted immunity.
Who is that?
Only THE moneyman for the Trump Organization. Not only did he work for Dolt45, but also his racist Pappy. He’s been with the family THAT long.
You don’t grant immunity to someone like Allen Weisselberg for nothing. You grant immunity to him because you want bigger fish. You want someone to explain to you the financial questions that you have about the Trump Organization. You grant immunity to a man like Allen Weisselberg because you are FOLLOWING THE MONEY.
David Fahrenthold, political reporter for The Washington Post, talks about the revelation that Donald Trump’s long-time money man, Trump Org CFO Allen Weisselberg, was granted immunity by prosecutors in the Michael Cohen case
Joyce Vance, former U.S. attorney, talks about the legal implications of Donald Trump’s right-hand-man in business being granted immunity by prosecutors in the Michael Cohen case, and the likelihood that prosecutors have their sights set on a “bigger fish” than Cohen.
Who would have thought that a Porn Star’s lawsuit could bring us to this point?
But, this is the truth. And, it wasn’t the sex with Stormy or McDougal that would get Dolt45 in trouble. His supporters don’t care about his lack of morals, because they showed their lack of character by voting for him. No. The point of these two women was always about FOLLOWING THE MONEY. The money got us Cohen, and Pecker and now Allen Weisselberg. The money is bringing the spotlight on the Trump Organization and Trump Foundation – two crooked organizations if there ever was one. The money is bringing the attention of all sorts of legal entities that aren’t named Robert Mueller, III, and for crimes that aren’t pardonable by a President.
It’s a tale as old as it gets:
The Money Never Lies.
