Miko Oyang on Brian Williams show using the word extortion.

I hope it catches on in the media because that is what it was, not quid pro quo. Also I think the low thought voters can understand what blackmail is, as delivered in newsworthy sound bites their brains can digest.

2. Yes. That's how Trump really rolls.

Just ask all the contractors and service providers he's stiffed for many, many years.

3. Chris Hayes used the E word too

Extortion. That's what it was. Mob behavior.

4. The MF is a mobster.

Extortion would be entry level crime for him. I have no doubt hes done way worse than extortion.

6. Yes, now that you mention it...

It wasn't "you find me some dirt, I'll build you a new house"
It was "if you don't find me some dirt, I'm going to burn your house down"

That, boys and girls, is extortion.
