Last edited Tue May 8, 2018, 06:21 PM - Edit history (2)

Michael Avenatti hinted at this story. New York Magazine is running with it.

1. Broidy definitely took the fall for trump on that one. It was part of his job.

I just can't wait to see the evangelical right wing fold themselves into pretzels telling me that this is ok.

2. I just talked about this with a left wing religious person in my office

I balked at the idea that Evangelicals would abandon Trump. He said "Some of them will stay home" (something like what happened with Roy Moore).

One can only hope

4. They don't care about goodness, compassion, morals, or life. It's a front and a wedge issue.

When confronted with the choice of doing something compassionate or putting a dime in their pocket, they'll step over a dying child to pick up the dime. Religion is for suckers. The gop has exploited religion and benefits from its ability to prevent its followers from rational thinking.

10. I think if the story came out before the election and it was Trump

I think it definitely could have affected turnout since Trump was still kind of an unknown quantity to them (Remember, rumors were flying that Pence was going to step aside when the Access Hollywood tape came out...)

with PA, WI and MI all having razor thin margins, all 3 could have swung to Clinton. And, who knows about NC and FL?

Just 1 evangelical voter in 20 not voting for Trump by either staying home or voting 3rd party.

3. Some people are saying that Broidy actually had a vasectomy in the late 1990's... So how did he do it?

13. I'm not defending Broidy but

itís entirely possible for the vas to regrow. Pretty rare but itís a known possibility.

Doubt thatís the case here though. Iím firmly in the broidy-is-covering camp.

6. There is no point in Broidy having to get an NDA because he's pretty much an unknown

and the only person he would probably need to worry about learning of it would be his wife. Why not just fess up to the wife and avoid parting with $1.6 million? Chances are the wife would somehow find out anyway. In any case, I bet Mueller knows.

17. Per Avenatti, Cohen only named two clients in court- Trump and Hannity

Assumption has been made that Broidy was a third client, but he was never named in court as a client of Cohen

20. wait... after Broidy paid $1.6 million to hush it up, he's all "yep, that's me" right away?

I didn't know he'd admitted (or "admitted" to the affair and the payment. I thought it was just in Cohen's records.

Well, that's completely implausible. There's no way it was Broidy.

28. This theory don't fly now

They found the source of the money as we see tonight. The quotes from Avenetti are interesting in light of recent developments
