Avenatti points to bribery sworn in court

This discussion thread was locked as off-topic by backtoblue (a host of the Latest Breaking News forum).

Source: Twitter

Why was Ahmed Al-Rumaihi meeting with Michael Cohen and Michael Flynn in December 2016 and why did Mr. Al-Rumaihi later brag about bribing administration officials according to a sworn declaration filed in court?

There it is. Attorney Michael Avenatti has been in hot pursuit and he is allowing the world to see. Bribery. Pretty serious stuff.

1. "Why did Mr. Al-Rumaihi later brag about bribing administration?"

But really what about Hillary's email server?

Now, is bribery a high crime or a misdemeanor?

4. "Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors"

"The President, Vice President and all civil Officers of the United States, shall be removed from Office on Impeachment for, and Conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors."


there's no wiggle room for whether or not bribery counts as a "high crime and misdemeanor". it's quite explicitly grounds for impeachment.

of course, politicians have legalized bribery if the money goes into a campaign or a pac, but that's another story.

9. PSPS, you are wrong.

The Tweet was posted today and it is, in fact, late breaking news.

Oh wait, you are referring to the fact the TraitorTrump administration is in the business of taking bribes. Yeah well, that is certainly not news. That is old history.

11. DU has an alert system to address violation of rules in posts.


and...
Forums have hosts. Hosts have one job, to lock threads.

Both of those procedures are in place to reduce posters calling out other posters.

6. Federal Court in LA.

 

A federal court filing in Los Angeles claims that agents of the nation of Qatar gave a payoff to convicted former Trump NSA, Gen. Michael Flynn, and also that he had accepted those payments. (see below) A Qatari spy ring with at least two individuals operating in America as unregistered foreign agents of their highly controversial government stands accused of defamation in the federal lawsuit seeking $1.2 billion in damages.

12. What warning is Avenatti referring to?


Oh...I found it.

He says...

And to be clear - by “warning ignored” I am referring to the refusal of various parties to come clean and the failure of various parties and news outlets to stop with the personal attacks on our side. Keep pushing us.

15. I do have a few misgivings about Avenatti appearing to wander so far afield of the case.

How is this relevant at all to SD's case regarding a broken NDA? And is it potentially damaging to RM's gigantic case(s)?

It's not that I don't love to see this information, but if it's going to result in a weaker federal case....I can wait.

16. Federal case is a bird in the bush.

I have no problem with Mr. Avenatti giving us one in the hand. If it prompts the MSM to follow a certain path all the better. I am afraid we may never hear the real case. I didn't think that was possible 2 months ago. Now I am fearful. We are a long way down a very dark road!
