5. White collar criminals often get some warning before arrest

Even Manafort got that, and they didn't trust him at all.

6. Ex-federal prosecutor explains why Michael Cohen may have leaked latest bombshell himself

Ex-federal prosecutor explains why Michael Cohen may have leaked latest bombshell himself



https://www.rawstory.com/2018/06/ex-federal-prosecutor-explains-michael-cohen-may-leaked-latest-bombshell/

Writing on Twitter, ex-federal prosecutor Renato Mariotti explains that Cohen is likely running out of resources to fight the FBI investigation into his business dealings, and he then speculates that Cohen may be leaking news of his potential impending cooperation with investigators as a way to get President Donald Trump’s attention.

“By moving towards cooperation now, Cohen is signaling that he doesn’t believe he will receive a pardon — or he’s trying to get one sooner rather than later,” Mariotti writes.

Although Mariotti acknowledges that Trump could “derail all of this with a pardon of Cohen,” the president’s pardons are only recognized for federal crimes. This means that New York’s state attorney general could pick up where the FBI left off and Trump would be powerless to stop them.

“If Trump pardoned Cohen for federal crimes, state prosecutors would have to use the evidence gathered by the FBI,” he writes. “Regardless of how it plays out, Cohen’s cooperation is a blow to the Trump team and could strengthen the case Mueller is building. How much it helps Mueller depends on what Cohen knows and how forthcoming he is.”

10. In that case wouldn't it have been better for the repuglicon dump to just sell pardons at the start?

"If you want a job in my wonderful administration, just pay $x,xxx,xxxx to the dump.org and We'll issue a pardon for all activities you may commit while working for my wonderful administration."

These are like indulgences/benevolences. Free to hand out as long as the quid-pro-quo is handed under the cassock.

"You want to have an abortion but feel it's against your xian values? $x,xxx." "Compromising videos with pr0n stars: $xx,xxx."

"Collaboration with enemies of the state? That's OK - I've got you covered."

11. But then, the question arises, "what is the pardon for?"

 

And the answer to that may well suggest that Trump is covering up his own guilt.

So pardoning people can send a very bad message to voters if the people pardoned are strong supporters and campaign or other aides to the president.

Why, of course, it would for the purpose of getting the baseless witch hunting prosecutors to leave this decent family man alone.

12. Pardon may be worthless.

The courts may rule that a Cohen pardon is null and void if it is given for corrupt purposes. Corrupt purposes would mean that the pardon was given to cover up Trump's own criminal activities. Plus...a pardon would render the 5th Amend. useless to Cohen.

Everything and everyone operates on such strategery. Instead of...a fact is a fact is a fact.
