Posted on 04/09/2018 1:12:01 PM PDT by Hojczyk
The F.B.I. on Monday raided the office of President Trumps longtime personal lawyer, Michael D. Cohen, seizing records related to several topics including payments to a pornographic-film actress. Federal prosecutors in Manhattan obtained the search warrant after receiving a referral from the special counsel, Robert S. Mueller III, according to Mr. Cohens lawyer, who called the search completely inappropriate and unnecessary. The search does not appear to be directly related to Mr. Muellers investigation, but likely resulted from information he had uncovered and gave to prosecutors in New York. Today the U.S. Attorneys Office for the Southern District of New York executed a series of search warrants and seized the privileged communications between my client, Michael Cohen, and his clients, said Stephen Ryan, his lawyer. I have been advised by federal prosecutors that the New York action is, in part, a referral by the Office of Special Counsel, Robert Mueller. Mr. Cohen plays a role in aspects of the special counsels investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election. He also recently said he paid $130,000 to a pornographic-film actress, Stephanie Clifford, who said she had an affair with Mr. Trump. Ms. Clifford is known as Stormy Daniels. Mr. Ryan said Mr. Cohen has cooperated with authorities and turned over thousands of documents to congressional investigators looking into Russian election meddling. The payments to Ms. Clifford are only one of many topics being investigated, according to a person briefed on the search. The F.B.I. also seized emails, tax documents and business records, the person said.

Sure doesn’t look like Trump is seating in the catbird seat. Should have known that if you give these jokers an inch they will take a mile. Sessions has been about as useful to Trump as a potted plant. Wonder if Trump understands the authority he has as Commander and Chief.
Oh, there WILL be elections.
Even Saddam Hussein's Iraq and North Korea have ELECTIONS.
It's just that the results are known in advance.
All this does is to raise my ire to the point of being mad enough to fight. It was incredibly stupid on their part to go this far. I’m a last straw kind of person — very peaceful and avoiding conflict until I’m pushed too far. And then I go bat s-— crazy.
I know I’m not alone in feeling this way. They brought the fight and it will not end well for them.
They do- they like being in the minority so they can get on the news and cry that they can’t get anything done because they are in the minority. They keep their jobs, their perks while continuing to screw the people who voted for them.
Then I say they need to all be out of Washington DC, period.
Mueller and his cohorts are way out of bounds here.
The Swamp creatures are shoving the President around and mussing up his hair--seeing how far they can go.
This will not end well at all.
folks it is plainly clear to anyone watching this that the republican party died years ago. I was never one to believe this uni-party business but how can you argue against it now? Isn’t it obvious? The scam we are being exposed to is that they are ALL in on this. They ALL are criminal. They ALL want the death of America a we know it. We the people just didn’t realize they all knew.
We are on the verge of having to realize why the 2nd amendment was created...we are heading to scary times.
ALL BETS OFF
THE REPUBLIC IS DEAD
FIGHT THE TYRANTS
DO NOT COOPERATE
“Sessions hates Trump. Hes probably having a private giggle with his bff, Rosenstein.”
Roger Stone was right. Trump’s lawyers slow walked him to the gallows. Past tense.
Mueller now has all of Trump’s dirty laundry. Even if there’s nothing illegal, they’ll have a treasure trove of crap to leak to the press.
It’s over. Whether we go out with a whimper or a bang is the question now facing all of us.
It’s the higher ups who are the corrupt ones. A friend of mine works in the FBI and believe me, this stuff is driving them crazy. This is all from Obama poisoning those depts. with punks and traitors. I thought John Bolton was going to clean it out, what happened with him?
Look at this, utter joke....
>>The FBI has proven, over and over again, to be an outright seditious organization thats wholly driven by their leftist / anti-American ideology and doesnt give a damn about law, justice or anything else. They are disgustingly corrupt and the country would be better if they were simply disbanded.
Time for POTUS to fire Sessions, Rosenpig, and Mueller, all of them. Let POTUS create a new org and fill it with patriots. Send the traitors to Gitmo.
Personally, I think it’s time.
Go back to making Kung Fu Panda movies.
The country is not going to survive this intact.
Which is probably the globalist plan to begin with. Rothschild and Soros are laying their cards on the table. Its all in now.
I was going to post that almost verbatim.
Rage Monkey Time!
I’m game. Ready?
Way past rage monkey.
Time to act.
