Could Spanky have sunk (or bent over) so low ?!?!?!

The leaked tape makes me think, for the first time, that Spanky may be a murderer, too. Yeah, I just went there and I'm pretty sure Spanky already has. Previously I had only thought he was a fraudster, criminal money launderer and overall shady, greasy piece of crap who has been tied up with mobsters his whole life. After the line of "maybe he'll be hit by a truck" is mob boss speak. I used to think Putie was blackmailing Spanky over a financial crime or collusion/election rigging, but now I think Spanky ordered a hit and it was done and Putie has the evidence. This would explain alot of this for me? Is Spanky a murderer? To partially quote him at a rally "sure, why not a murderer?" Otherwise why is he so scared?

3. I'm not sure about the truck line, but...

I'd be willing to bet that he has had people murdered. Do I have proof? No, but everyday as more comes out, it's obvious he is mobbed up to the hilt.

His buddy Ghouliani vigorously prosecuted La Cosa Nostra, clearing the way for the rise of the Russian mob in NYC ... and Cohen just happens to own a part of a nightclub (and his father owns (owned?) most of it) pretty much known as ground-zero for Russian Mob in the 1990's. Cohen's in way deep with the Russians, of that I have NO doubt, and has been all his life.

And the people he met up with shortly after the raid, the one where a buncha pics were taken? I'd bet those were mostly high-level Russian Mob Bosses. He looked very afraid around them.

4. There is no maximum depth to which he might sink.

Whether he's ever actually had anyone whacked is unknown, but his BFF Putin has - especially dissidents and journalists - so we'll see...

6. Who's knows if he didn't off that brother who died mysteriously from Alcoholism

I watch too many of those ID crime shows and it would not surprise me one bit if he is a murderer. And not just his brother. That line he did “I could shoot someone on 5th Avenue and get away with it” remembers me of those lines I heard in docudramas about murderers who got away with it for several years until they got caught.

And so far we know he's committed extortion, bribery, perverted sex crimes, solicited prostitutes, been known to lie and cheat compulsively. It's possible he's put out hit jobs on people he's been involved with.

9. I have no problem believing he'd order a murder, doing it himself is something else.

Trump is squeamish and cowardly. He talks big but doesn't act big (see also his real-life record of firing people compared to his show). He's also scared of blood. I doubt he's killed anyone himself.

I would quite readily believe, however, that he could have put himself in a position to be blackmailed for alleged murder by doing something inappropriate with someone who later ended up dead at the hands of the blackmailing party. For example, Russian intelligence tapes him with an underaged prostitute, who they then murder themselves. That wouldn't surprise me at all.

12. This "hit by a truck" phrase is common and is not an order to kill

This is a commonplace phrase in business. We use it at work all the time. Being a small company, we worry about knowledge and skills being held only by a single employee. We need to make sure everyone has a backup, in case anyone "is hit by a bus" (or truck).

In this case, they made a deal with an individual at ami to bury the story, but the story is being bought by ami, not the individual. So they have to worry about how the story stays buried even if the individual gets "hit by a truck".

It's not an order to kill someone. Quite the opposite, they very much did *not* want that individual to go away, he's the one who is burying the story for them!

There's plenty of evil fuckery in these tapes and in general by Donnie, and hell, maybe he did get someone offed at some point, he certainly wouldn't lose any sleep over it.

But not in the case.

that he has done that. Or maybe, one of those peeing hookers died accidentally, or her death was arranged to make it look like 45 did it.

That may be possible, because I would put nothing past him. Of course there is no proof. It is still more likely that pootie has evidence of money laundering and other financial crimes.

"Maybe he'll get hit by a truck or something"

I don't see much difference.
