Trump just commended a law enforcement agent for his work fighting "rival gangs, right here in St. Louis." Members of the audience in Kansas City did a double take.
I've always heard the St Louis/Kansas City gang rivalry is even more bloody than the Crips/Bloods rivalry.

St Louis, Kansas City, all the same to Donald.

Give him credit for perhaps knowing the two cities are at least in the same state?

He was rallying at the 2018 Project Safe Neighborhoods National Conference in Kansas City, Missouri.

DONALD TRUMP WILL RESIGN PRESIDENCY WITH 10 MINUTES LEFT IN TERM SO MIKE PENCE CAN PARDON HIM, CONSERVATIVE COLUMNIST PREDICTS


https://www.newsweek.com/donald-trump-i ... ia-1251580
“I would predict here on MSNBC that when Trump leaves office he will resign the presidency 10 minutes before Mike Pence leaves office, allowing Pence to pardon him if there is not a Republican president to follow him,” Rubin told the network’s AM Joy program.

The columnist was commenting on the possibility that the Department of Justice would indict Trump after he leaves office.

Well it's just as well a president can't pardon for state crimes - and NY and MD are on track to find plenty of those!

So, does it make any difference if the campaign finance violations were committed BEFORE Trump was elected?

I think that with the official announcement for candidacy all actions must now been looked at as campaign related if they have the capability to influence the public opinion in ne way or other.

OK, but what about this so called immunity from indictment of a sitting president?

The act occurred before that.

It's not an immunity* based on when the acts were committed but on the nature of the job. So it would likely still apply.

*To whatever extent it is a real immunity and not a misinterpretation.

EXCLUSIVE – President Trump has canceled the White House holiday party for the media, making the decades-old tradition a victim of his increasingly contentious relationship with major news organizations.

The annual Christmas-season gathering was a significant perk for those covering the White House, as well as other Washington reporters, anchors and commentators, and New York media executives would regularly fly in for the occasion. At its peak, the invitation-only soirees grew so large that there were two back-to-back events, one for broadcast outlets and one for print organizations.


Journalists who attended the events, which featured a catered buffet of lamb chops, crab claws and elaborate desserts, got to roam the decorated mansion with a spouse or other family member, a friend or a colleague, adding to the invitation's allure.

That brings up an interesting discussion.

Federal Secret Service are Law-Enforcement agents. If a court was to issue a warrant for Donald Trump's arrest, would the Secret Service be obligated to bring him in?

I'd think 'yes', with the caveat that they remain with him during custody.

President Trump, interviewed on Fox News, says Michael Cohen did "very low-level work" that was more PR than law and "he was OK on television."
Thread.

Awful lot of money he earned for a low level guy, plus those huge reimbursement checks.

You know, mostly PR stuff. Vandalizing construction equipment, picking up and delivering plain brown envelopes in deserted parking lots, buying escorts for clients and union officials, sending building inspectors pictures of their kids getting on the school bus, you know . . . just general low level PR stuff.

Before anyone has a ting of pity for Micheal Cohen, let me remind you....
Micheal Cohen wrote:“I will make sure that you and I meet one day while we’re in the courthouse. And I will take you for every penny you still don’t have. And I will come after your Daily Beast and everybody else that you possibly know,” Cohen said. “So I’m warning you, tread very fucking lightly, because what I’m going to do to you is going to be fucking disgusting. You understand me?”

Trump was in the room during hush money discussions, NBC News confirms
A source confirms to NBC News that the "other member of the campaign" present when Michael Cohen and David Pecker agreed to silence women was Donald Trump.

Donald Trump was the third person in the room in August 2015 when his lawyer Michael Cohen and National Enquirer publisher David Pecker discussed ways Pecker could help counter negative stories about Trump's relationships with women, NBC News has confirmed.

As part of a non-prosecution agreement disclosed Wednesday by federal prosecutors, American Media Inc., the Enquirer's parent company, admitted that "Pecker offered to help deal with negative stories about that presidential candidate's relationships with women by, among other things, assisting the campaign in identifying such stories so they could be purchased and their publication avoided."

The "Statement of Admitted Facts" says that AMI admitted making a $150,000 payment "in concert with the campaign," and says that Pecker, Cohen, and "at least one other member of the campaign" were in the meeting. According to a person familiar with the matter, the "other member" was Trump.
