21. I think those three years are locked in

however, if he lies again, he can get more added to it and there is a great deal of discretion over WHERE he spends those three years.

His life can get a lot worse or it can stay where it is, with a fairly light sentence served in a place that is relatively pleasant (compared to other options).

The reason I mentioned it was a comment by one of the talking head lawyers on the tv machine. She said the length of time can be modified by the presiding judge if "extra" cooperation was deemed appropriate for the case..

20. Not Enough

Calling tRump a liar, racist and cheat, and calling Republicans complicit is just what I feared we’d hear. It sounds cute but it’s not enough to rid us of this sham of a president. Everybody knows this stuff. It’s all just fluff to appease a few journalists.

27. I agree. Cohen isnt going to say anything groundbreaking. Nothing new.

Trump is a liar, cheat, self-aggrandizer, dirtbag, etc. We already know all that. I would add to your comment about the journalists, its also to provide soundbites for House representatives.
We're not gonna get anything solid regarding Russian involvement in the election, collusion, treason, etc.
I could be wrong, but thats my feeling.

43. Not here, today ..

But the closed session is upcoming, and I would at least guess that behind closed doors, in a CLASSIFIED SETTING he will be able to offer testimony about things that are thus far classified (OR UNDER SEAL WITH THE GRAND JURY?).

I'm not a lawyer. Somebody who is, can chime in please, and educate me?

46. Thats true; a closed session is an opportunity for something new.

But as we've seen already, i dont think it'll have anything to do with Russia. All he would say is that he wouldnt put it past trump, which none of us would. But no info of actually working WITH any russians other than the hotel deal. And he also said he never thought the tape existed too.
But there could be stuff we havent even THOUGHT of that would fall under the "classified" category

Hell, the Secret Service would probably just take him into custody.
These types always have people like Cohen to do dirty work for them. But when the shit hits the fan, they find out no one close to them is loyal to them at all.
I'm sure the forefathers of this country wrote up how to deal with a usurper.

I'm just hoping to keep Trump's approval rating down toward 2020. Any drop of a point or two is significant. I realize others have hopes of ending Trump's presidency but I just don't view that as realistic.

We should have college campus registration drives in full swing right now.

Jordan: If it was so bad working for Trump, why did you work for him for ten years?

Cohen: Well, how long did you work side by side with a child molester before you were able to become a Congressman.

33. You have to wonder what trump has on the entire gop

 

To make them this subservient and complicit in his crimes.

pootin pulled the same sting on them he pulled on trump. pootin has the entire gop in, let's just say, "compromising" positions. And on his payroll, obviously, considering the gop traitors who have accepted russian money and the outrageous amounts involved - not to mention the sex tapes on each and every one of those perverts.

Remember when that gop delegation went to russia? I'll bet they all wet the same bed trump did. On video. 4K. With Dolby sound.
