    I am waiting for him and members of his corrupt family to be locked, and I hope this will happen while he is still in office.

    Federal prosecutors took a major step on Wednesday in their investigation of hush-money payments made to two women who said they had affairs with Donald J. Trump, announcing that The National Enquirerís parent company was cooperating.

    The company, American Media Inc., the countryís biggest tabloid publisher, played an important role in a scheme to keep the women silent in the months before the 2016 election so that Mr. Trumpís chances would not be damaged, federal prosecutors said.

    Under the arrangement, federal prosecutors in Manhattan agreed not to charge A.M.I. in return for the companyís cooperation.

    The agreement came after David J. Pecker, A.M.I.ís chief executive, provided key testimony to prosecutors as they investigated the presidentís personal lawyer, Michael D. Cohen. Mr. Cohen received a three-year prison sentence on Wednesday in part for his involvement in the payments, which prosecutors said amounted to campaign finance violations.

    Paying hush money is honestly not a problem [see Clinton, Bill]. Using campaign money to do so IS a problem. A very big one. I doubt AMI is going to offer up any useful information as to the source of the funds they received.

    A couple of notable things in that agreement:

    1. Itís specified that the payment was specifically election-related. So much for the purely personal, non-campaign transaction.

    2. It blows Dershowitz's "extortion" theory out of the water. McDougald didnít approach Trump demanding payment in exchange for keeping quiet; she thought she was putting her story in the National Enquirer.

    3. The deal was cut with the Southern District of New York, not with Mueller's office. This is one of the ways Mueller has been protecting his investigation - by handing parts of it off. Firing Mueller would haveno effect on SDNY. Also, Marcy Wheeler at emptywheel.com pointed out that all of the filings have contained much more information than strictly necessary at that moment. In effect, Mueller's report is being revealed in fragments along the way, and we already have a consideabl3 amount of info.

    No, Maynerd, it doesnít matter. Youíre right, paying hush money isnít necessarily a crime, but paying hush money specifically to influenc3 an election is a campaign expenditure, regardless of where the money came from.

    So, had Trump denied everything for eight years, and kept everything bogged down in the courts, and THEN settled it would be OK [see Clinton, Bill]. But, settling closer to the front end, and without getting it tied up in the courts for years, is NOT?

    Or, have the rules changed, because Trump? It just seems inconsistent to me. What was clearly not a problem between 1992-1999, now seems to be a Constitutional Crisis. Times change, I guess.

    No, Maynerd. If Trump had not paid off McDougal with the specific intention of helping his presidential campaign, it would not have been a campaign donation. And had he not worked with others to conceal and disguise the payment, it would not have been a conspiracy to defraud.

    Sometimes itís not differ3nt because Trump. Sometimes Trump just did different, worse things.

    I'm sure these 15 Senators agree with you 100% Maynerd

    After Cohen was sentenced, the NY feds produced the plea agreement info with AMI (Pecker), which stated the hush money was intended to influence the election. They are also hunting down the Trump Origination check writers. Who happen to be only Trump family.

    The NY new AG stated that she will do an investigation into all illegal activities in the Trump Organization.

    Hell he fired Yates after she reported the Flynn Russian connection.

    I want those that are investigating Trump to get his financials and expose him as the crook some of us know he is so that even his 35% can recognize his financial misdeeds. They might not accept it, but some of them will as even that crowd hates crooks that cheat and steal while they struggle in life.

    Trump is not in the West Wing yet this morning, NBC's Hans Nichols just reported on @MSNBC. The Marine guard is not posted out there.
    That was posted at 11:05AM this morning.

    Next time Republicans want to attach work requirements to a piece of legislation, I can think of one job they should start with.

    Richard Nixon is the first person I knew of who was POTUS when I was young.
    Iíve rethought my position. He wonít be gone by next summer. Not in 6 months either.

    Iím now forecasting that heíll resign within 4 months. Maybe as soon as 3. Things are starting to move very quickly, so I may be too conservative in my prediction.
