    Having withheld his comments all day Friday to the NYT revelation that his former lawyer Michael Cohen secretly recorded one of their conversations before the 2016 election dicussing a payment over the story of a former Playboy model’s alleged affair with Trump, Trump broke his silence on Saturday morning using his favorite medium.
    Trump Responds To ‘Inconceivable, Perhaps Illegal’ Cohen Tape Revelation


    What else is so sickening is how so many of these Obama and Clinton deep state losers have openly been caught in multiple crime and the scum still don't get arrested but let you the slave commit the same crimes and you would be looking at 5 life sentences.

    It works both ways: Just as much as all the egregious crimes of Hillary and the Obama administration have been soft-walked out the door, nothing to see here, despite mountains of evidence, they will just as much hound Trump to find anything they can, threaten, bribe, whatever it takes to shake loose a single spider from Trump's closet to try to hang him on. And it all could have been avoided had Sessions merely done his job and oversaw the Mueller investigation the same way that Loretta Lynch oversaw Hillary's---- from the tarmac of Bill's plane.

    The real joke is that in looking for a russian connection to election tampering, the real tampering is right under everyone's noses:
    The Democratic Party.
    Hillary and her Steele Dossier paid to the Ukrainians.
    Obama and his wiretaps.
    Obama reshuffling intelligence handing the day before leaving office to enable endless leaks.
    Hillary's secret deals with CNN debate handlers.
    The sabotaging of Bernie's campaign.
    Debbie Wasserman-Schultz and her Pakistani spy.
    Hillary running her Sec. of State Office with Clint. Foundation employees and a private computer outside government hands.
    The FBI never seizing the Podesta computer
    The FBI complicit in destroying Hillary evidence
    The FBI in not recording Hillary interviews and allowing people under investigation to represent her.

    If Trump did any ONE of these things, it would be a FRONT PAGE WATERGATE SCANDAL.

    New York is a single consent state for recording conversations. The only way that conversation was illegal was if Cohen didn’t consent to recording himself.

    Good luck with that.

    New York's wiretapping law is a "one-party consent" law. New York makes it a crime to record to record or eavesdrop on an in-person or telephone conversation unless one party to the conversation consents. N.Y. Penal Law §§ 250.00, 250.05. (link is to the entire code, you need to click on the Penal Code section, then choose Article 250 and locate the specific provisions). Thus, if you operate in New York, you may record a conversation or phone call if you are a party to the conversation or you get permission from one party to the conversation in advance. That said, if you intend to record conversations involving people located in more than one state, you should play it safe and get the consent of all parties.”

    The fun with Trump is that he telegraphs his bullshit with convenient markers. An accusation followed by a question-mark is Trump giving us a heads up that what he just said is hapless nonsense.

    This is what it looks like when panic filters down from Dear Leader to his loyal footsoldiers.

    You know when the best case scenario is a tape recording a conversation paying hush money to cover up affairs immediately before the election in a potential felony....

    .....shit is hitting the fan.

    Yep. And Mueller is now not pressing for a Trump interview. He's going to let the leverage build up, now.
