    How are the snowflakes going to argue that Trump should go to prison and also argue that Obama shouldn't go to prison for the very same thing? This should get interesting.

    Obama’s $150,000 ‘HUSH MONEY BRIBE’ … ‘Paid Reverend Jeremiah Wright To Stay Quiet During 2008 Campaign’ – CITIZEN FREE PRESS

    Reverend Jeremiah Wright caused problems for President Barack Obama’s campaign in 2008, and new details have emerged alleging that the then-candidate tried to convince his former pastor to keep quiet.

    The retired pastor, who came under fire after an old sermon where he said that the September 11 terrorist attacks were ‘America’s chickens coming home to roost’, said that he was offered $150,000 to stay silent until the election was over.

    Journalist Edward Klein interviewed Mr Wright and included their conversation in his new book, The Amateur.

    ‘After the media went ballistic on me, I received an email offering me money not to preach until the November presidential election,’ Mr Wright told the author, as relayed by The New York Post.

    Media reports, "Mr Wright said that ‘one of Barack’s closest friends’ sent an email to a member of the church saying that he would pay $150,000 for the pastor to keep quiet for fear of saying something incendiary."

    "He said that following the incident, the then-candidate Mr Obama requested a private, secret meeting with the Reverend to make a personal plea."

    "Mr Wright said that, while he wasn’t sure whether or not Mr Obama was wearing a wire, they met and discussed their options."

    "And one of the first things Barack said was, “I really wish you wouldn’t do any more public speaking until after the November election,”‘ Mr Wright told Mr Klein."

    "‘He knew I had some speaking engagements lined up, and he said, “I wish you wouldn’t speak. It’s gonna hurt the campaign if you do that.”‘"

    Hello. Bottom line: IMO, President and Mrs. Obama and did more harm than good by not denouncing the people and community harming VIOLENCE & Fvvkery many of his urban story-TRUTH-teller friends and WH guests vividly describe in their FEMALE hating music.

    Well you know? O is just so wonderful he would never do anything illegal or untoward. LMFAO!

    The same people who believe this, condemn Trump supporters for believing the every same thing about Trump.

    $150K is nothing to Rev. Wright. Maybe about $5 Mil would do it.

    "History

    Citizen Free Press does not have an about page, disclaimer or any information regarding who is behind the website. A Who is search shows the domain was registered privately in 2016. The only information we can glean from the website is someone named Kane is the admin and publishes all the articles."

    Certainly does not read like a very reliable source to me. More like a political, grocery store check out lane tabloid.

    Yeah and O probably said to the good reverend, “let me check with George (Soros) to find out if he can pay you $5 mil.”

    LOL...and the desperation continues to grow from Trumpbots.

    First it was - 'It's all fake news'.
    Next it was - 'Trump didn't do it - but even if he did, it's not a crime'.
    Next it was - 'Okay, Trump did it but it was not a crime'.
    Now it's - 'Even if Trump did it AND it is a crime, he cannot go to jail because of __________ (fill in excuse)'.



    The change over the last few months is a chuckle to read.
