Here's the thing. Even if he way right, it doesn't matter because I was allowed to do whatever I wanted during the Campaign. I was running my Business. A lot of different thing during the campaign. That was president Trump.

Hey Steve, did you hear Trump telling that one?


Wednesday, December 5th 2018 at 9:37PM
Deacon Ron Gray
On that one Ron, I agree 100% with President Trump.

You want to desperately believe that LIE, that is your choice.

You people were POSITIVE Trump could NOT win. What the hell, you think we don't remember Ron?

Have you ever heard the word “ compromise?”


Thursday, December 6th 2018 at 1:47PM
Deacon Ron Gray
I know the word Ron. Compromise has nothing to do with running a business while running a campaign. Elections are far from certain and Trump is not foolish.

Trump is using their money. Here's the latest. Trump’s business dealings in Russia took center stage on Thursday right before his departure for the summit in Buenos Aires, when his former personal attorney Michael Cohen pleaded guilty to lying to Congress about a project in Moscow in an August 2017 statement to U.S. lawmakers.

Steve, you heard of Felix Sater, He is a FELON, ex-government informant and former Trump business associate, said Thursday that he came up with the idea as a way to reap extra profit from Trump Tower Moscow, which he said would have brought in as much as $500 million if it had been built. Cohen approved of the idea, Sater said, adding that it came to him while “spitballing” marketing schemes.

Steve, TODAY is going very NEWS INTERESTING because Special counsel Robert Mueller on Friday is set to file new disclosures in court cases involving two of President Donald Trump's former close associates, both of whom have entered guilty pleas as part of the ongoing probe into Russian interference in the U.S. election in 2016.

STAY TUNE, MORE TO COME.

Stay tuned Ron, Trump did not use "their" money.

With the release of the Michael Flynn sentencing recommendations, many experts are anticipating that there will be additional indictments in Robert Mueller’s investigation and Judge Andrew Napolitano, a judicial analyst for Fox News, says he expects Donald Trump Jr. to be among the people indicted.

Now a ABC News investigation found he has numerous connections to Russian interests both in the U.S. and abroad.

“The level of business amounts to hundreds of millions of dollars — what he received as a result of interaction with Russian businessmen,” said Sergei Millian, who heads a U.S.-Russia business group and who says he once helped market Trump’s U.S. condos in Russia and the former Soviet states. “They were happy to invest with him, and they were happy to work with Donald Trump. And they were happy to associate—[and] be associated with Donald Trump.”

Now according to a report In 2008, Donald Trump Jr. — the GOP nominee’s son and the VP for Development for The Trump Organization — told attendees at a real estate conference in New York City that “Russians make up a pretty disproportionate cross-section of a lot of our assets. We see a lot of money pouring in from Russia.” Americans need to know how much money has poured into The Trump Organization from Russia and from whom. Sergei Millian, the president of the U.S. Russian Chamber of Commerce and friend of Trump, claims in 2016 the figure is in the hundreds of millions.

So what did we find out about Cohen Ron?

Friday, December 7th 2018 at 5:14PM
Steve Williams
The word "COMPROMISED" comes to mind.


Friday, December 7th 2018 at 5:15PM
Deacon Ron Gray
And Ron, did you verify the information about what Nepolitano is reported to have said, in your unattributed report?


Friday, December 7th 2018 at 5:23PM
Steve Williams
The word CROOK comes to mind.

Friday, December 7th 2018 at 5:24PM
Steve Williams
No, FOX NEWS DID!!!Believe it or not. Remember who's CROOK Michael Cohen was and who would have benefited if the investigation did not bust Cohen.

Crook was a good idea that came to your mind Steve, good job.






Friday, December 7th 2018 at 8:51PM
Deacon Ron Gray
No, Fox News was not where that information came from. I can tell whom Napolitano said that to but I won't encourage your laziness Ron.

Michael Cohen is the SDNY'S CROOK Ron. Jump down to the heading "Discussion" on page 22.

This was not a blind act of loyalty, as Cohen has also suggested. His actions suggest that Cohen relished the status of ultimate fixer – a role that he embraced as recently as May 2018.12 Cohen was driven by a desire to further ingratiate himself with a potential future President—for whose political success Cohen himself claimed credit—and arranged for the payments in an attempt to increase his power and influence. Indeed, after Cohen caused the media company to make an illegal expenditure, in a secretly recorded meeting Cohen took credit for the payment and assured Individual-1 that he was “all over” the transaction. And after making the payment to the second woman, and after Individual-1 was elected President, Cohen privately bragged to friends and reporters, including in recorded conversations, that he had made the payment to spare Individual-1 from damaging press and embarrassment. Cohen’s criminal violations of the federal election laws were also stirred, like his other crimes, by his own ambition and greed. During and after the campaign, Cohen privately told friends and colleagues, including in seized text messages, that he expected to be given a prominent role and title in the new administration. When that did not materialize, Cohen found a way to monetize his relationship with and access to the President. Cohen successfully convinced numerous major corporations to retain him as a “consultant” who could provide unique insights about and access to the new administration. Some of these corporations were then stuck making large up-front or periodic payments to Cohen, even though he provided little or no real services under these contracts. Bank records reflect that Cohen made more than $4 million dollars before the contracts were terminated.

Trump love a go getter and Cohen was the best way Trump could have his dream of a Trump Tower Moscow but something went wrong and the word that Trump was to lower U.S. sanctions on Russia. Did Trump lower U,S. sanctions on Russia companies?

WASHINGTON, Dec 5 (Reuters) - The top Democrat on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee on Wednesday urged the Trump administration not to waive or remove sanctions on Russian oligarch Oleg Deripaska or two companies he controls.

In a letter to U.S. Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin, Senator Bob Menendez cited unspecified reports that Treasury was considering such a move and noted the department's own analysis says the oligarch is accused of crimes from blackmail to murder.

For a notoriously thin-skinned president who rarely hesitates to hit back, Donald Trump was notably quiet over the weekend after Russian President Vladimir Putin said on Friday that his government would seize two United States diplomatic properties in Moscow and ordered hundreds of American diplomats to leave the country. Days earlier, Congress had overwhelmingly passed a new sanctions bill targeting Russia for its interference in the 2016 election, outraging Putin. “

You do remember this don't you?

I remember better than you Ron. President Obama put sanctions on Russia as he was leaving office, to put into play Strzok's INSURANCE POLICY.

Saturday, December 8th 2018 at 10:07AM

WASHINGTON — Responding to evidence that Russia hacked Democratic Party officials during this year's presidential election, the Obama administration Thursday sanctioned Russian intelligence officials, expelled 35 Russian diplomats suspected of being spies and shut down two Russian facilities in the United States.

"These actions follow repeated private and public warnings that we have issued to the Russian government, and are a necessary and appropriate response to efforts to harm U.S. interests in violation of established international norms of behavior," President Obama said in a statement, describing the efforts to interfere in the election as a threat to the democratic process.

Why was those sanctions put on Russia in the first place, Stevie?

They were put in place as part of the insurance policy to deny America the smooth transition of executive power.

Saturday, December 8th 2018 at 11:35AM
Steve Williams
So, you are saying that Russia plays apart in America the smooth transition of executive power? Well in this case, I guess you are right.

Of course I'm right.

So you are giving Putin praise for Trump claim to power in The United States of America, since you are saying the Russians play apart of America the smooth transition of executive power. I heard that!!!

Of course you are right.

Deacon Ron Gray
Cohen was Trump's personal attorney and fixer, wasn't he Steve? Cohen would make things disappear and smooth things out for Trump, I am I right?

It is not true at all what Trump said, "I could do anything I wanted to do." Because of the things Cohen allegedly said Trump directly said for him to do, are against THE LAW.

Read the memos Ron and get your facts straight.

Defendant Michael Cohen is scheduled to be sentenced on December 12, 2018. The United States Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York (the “Office”) respectfully submits this memorandum in connection with that sentencing and in response to the defendant’s sentencing memorandum dated November 30, 2018 (“Def. Mem.”).

https://www.justsecurity.org/wp-content/uploads/2018/12/20181207-27-sentencing-memo-usa.pdf

The Special Counsel’s Office (“SCO”) provides this memorandum in connection with the sentencing of Michael Cohen scheduled for December 12, 2018. On November 29, 2018, Cohen pleaded guilty to one count of making false statements to Congress, in violation of 18 U.S.C. § 1001(a). The government does not take a position with respect to a particular sentence to be imposed but submits that it is appropriate for any sentence of incarceration to be served concurrently to any sentence imposed by the Court in United States v. Cohen, 18-cr-602 (WHP).

Hey STEVIE: Cohen was Trump's personal attorney and fixer, wasn't he Steve? Cohen would make things disappear and smooth things out for Trump, am I right?

It is not true at all what Trump said, "I could do anything I wanted to do." Because of the things Cohen allegedly said Trump directly said for him to do, are against THE LAW. CAN YOU REFUTE THAT STATEMENT?

First, Cohen’s commission of two campaign finance crimes on the eve of the 2016 election for President of the United States struck a blow to one of the core goals of the federal campaign finance laws: transparency. While many Americans who desired a particular outcome to the election knocked on doors, toiled at phone banks, or found any number of other legal ways to make their voices heard, Cohen sought to influence the election from the shadows. He did so by orchestrating secret and illegal payments to silence two women who otherwise would have made public their alleged extramarital affairs with Individual-1. In the process, Cohen deceived the voting public by hiding alleged facts that he believed would have had a substantial effect on the election. It is this type of harm that Congress sought to prevent when it imposed limits on individual contributions to candidates. To promote transparency and prevent wealthy individuals like Cohen from circumventing these limits, Congress prohibited individuals from making expenditures on behalf of and coordinated with candidates. Cohen clouded a process that Congress has painstakingly sought to keep transparent. The sentence imposed should reflect the seriousness of Cohen’s brazen violations of the election laws and attempt to counter the public cynicism that may arise when individuals like Cohen act as if the political process belongs to the rich and powerful. Cohen’s submission suggests that this was but a brief error in judgment. Not so. Cohen knew exactly where the line was, and he chose deliberately and repeatedly to cross it. Indeed, he was a licensed attorney with significant political experience and a history of campaign donations, and who was well-aware of the election laws.11 In fact, Cohen publicly and privately took credit for Individual-1’s political success, claiming – in a conversation that he secretly recorded – that he “started the whole thing . . . started the whole campaign” in 2012 when Individual-1 expressed an interest in running for President. Moreover, not only was Cohen well aware of what he was doing, but he used sophisticated tactics to conceal his misconduct. He arranged one of the payments through a media company and disguised it as a services contract, and executed the second non-disclosure agreement with aliases and routed the six-figure payment through a shell corporation. After the election, he arranged for his own reimbursement via fraudulent invoices for non-existent legal services ostensibly performed pursuant to a non-existent “retainer” agreement. And even when public reports of the payments began to surface, Cohen told shifting and misleading stories about the nature of the payment, his coordination with the candidate, and the fact that he was reimbursed. This was not a blind act of loyalty, as Cohen has also suggested. His actions suggest that Cohen relished the status of ultimate fixer – a role that he embraced as recently as May 2018.12 Cohen was driven by a desire to further ingratiate himself with a potential future President—for whose political success Cohen himself claimed credit—and arranged for the payments in an attempt to increase his power and influence.
