Yeesh. Every time something spectacular happens in Freeperville, it’s usually right after my Monday morning post. And this week was no exception.
Hence – a special Friday morning “Obsession” :
F.B.I. Raids Office of Trump’s Longtime Lawyer Michael Cohen

The F.B.I. on Monday raided the office of President Trump’s longtime personal lawyer, Michael D. Cohen, seizing records related to several topics including payments to a pornographic-film actress. Federal prosecutors in Manhattan obtained the search warrant after receiving a referral from the special counsel, Robert S. Mueller III, according to Mr. Cohen’s lawyer, who called the search “completely inappropriate and unnecessary.” The search does not appear to be directly related to Mr. Mueller’s investigation, but likely resulted from information he had uncovered and gave to prosecutors in New York. “Today the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York executed a series of search warrants and seized the privileged communications between my client, Michael Cohen, and his clients,” said Stephen Ryan, his lawyer. “I have been advised by federal prosecutors that the New York action is, in part, a referral by the Office of Special Counsel, Robert Mueller.” Mr. Cohen plays a role in aspects of the special counsel’s investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election. He also recently said he paid $130,000 to a pornographic-film actress, Stephanie Clifford, who said she had an affair with Mr. Trump. Ms. Clifford is known as Stormy Daniels. Mr. Ryan said Mr. Cohen has cooperated with authorities and turned over thousands of documents to congressional investigators looking into Russian election meddling. The payments to Ms. Clifford are only one of many topics being investigated, according to a person briefed on the search. The F.B.I. also seized emails, tax documents and business records, the person said.
To: AllCan’t wait to see the Qanon-believers, Sundance-supporters, and Gateway-Pundit-guys all coming out of the woodowrk to tell us how this is really a great 4-D chess move by Trump, and that the Military Tribunals will be starting any day now.
Beat me to it.
Like I said, “One little problem with that: ”
Mueller is working hand-in-hand with the New York Attorney General, so it’s not clear that even firing Mueller could stop this investigation.
Andy Cuomo is in the driver’s seat and has the means and intention to bring Trump down.
Simple solution : fire every NY State prosecutor and judge!
Whaddya mean, “he can’t do that” ??
By “means” I include:
- aggressive, partisan Attorney General
- all the records from Trump’s lawyers office and home
- a loving, complicit press
- a porn star to play a reprise of the Paula Jones role
- lots of Deep State operatives helping out
- A Special Counsel to feed him information
- the FBI willing to lend a helping hand
- Trump’s associates all under indictment or worried about it.
- probably transcripts of the NSA intercepts of Trump and his associates.
All-in-all, it’s a powerful arsenal.
Only if you’ve broken the law(s).
“Jeff, is a backstabbing turncoat.”
AGREE 100%. The fact that the FBI and Mueller are TOTALLY IGNORING THE NUMEROUS CRIMES COMMITTED BY TEAMS OBAMA AND HILLARY IS SICKENING.
…. Stormie’s Lawyer said last week that Trump saying he didn’t know about the payoff was a “Gift from Heaven.” My guess is they are trying to find evidence that the Evil Trump ordered the payoff.
To: HojczykIt is past time for Trump to realize that the mortal threat to him and the Republic is right hear(sic) in DC, not in Syria. Firing Mueller and Rosenstein and the rest of the coup plotters is no longer adequate. Trump needs to have the Marines and the military police raid Mueller’s and Rosenstein’s offices and take them into custody as threats to national security.
The deep state intends to remove Trump by any means necessary, so it is time to root out the deep state coup attempt and see who wins in the end. Desperate times and all that. If Trump is truly not charge of the DOJ and the FBI,
then he is not the President of all of the US nor the government.
F*** Y*** FBI.WHEN IS THE FBI GOING TO RAID THE OFFICES OF THE FOLLOWING KNOWN CRIMINALS?:
Hillary, Huma, Anthony, Clapper, Brennan, Comey, Strzok, Page, Mills, Rice, Obama, Lynch, Power, Lerner, Koskinen, Pagliano, etc???
EFF YOU, FBI, for IGNORING the REAL criminals right in front of your EFFING FACES.
All this does is to raise my ire to the point of being mad enough to fight. It was incredibly stupid on their part to go this far. I’m a last straw kind of person — very peaceful and avoiding conflict until I’m pushed too far. And then I go bat s-— crazy.
Somehow, I don’t think it was much of a trip to make.

Unlike Obama, Trump is opposed by 98% of Congress and about the same percentage of press. They are goading Trump to make a high profile termination so they can trot out the Watergate playbook.
If Trump goes down, the Republican party is finished. The MFers don’t understand that.
I know they’ll never get my vote again. The Dems can have this shithole…

wow, I was right, Q-Anon really is beyond parody.
If it was not obvious that it was a parody post then it is hard to reach a point of parody with this Q-anon nonsense.
If Q’s predictions were wrong, then Q would not have a following. Q been right over and over again. I am sorry if you don’t understand that.
Perhaps it’s an indication that your brain has inflammation from the foods you eat? People with brain inflammation have cognitive trouble processing information that require a little bit of thinking. That may be the case and explain why you really believe what you say.
Nevertheless, having a conniption fit over something you don’t believe in…. sort of like the Easter Bunny… Well that tells me you are troll. If you don’t believe, then why are you motivated to destroy it? Live and live instead of being a control freak.
It’s okay to disagree, but don’t post fake posts.
I have yet to see a single legitimate “prediction” made by “Q-Anon” before an event. Vague prophecies, shifting timeframes, spurious photos, and post-hoc claims don’t count.
I’m not trying to “destroy” anything, I have not the time or inclination to engage in this Q-world.
If you can’t enjoy a tiny bit of fun then maybe it is your brain that is suffering inflammation. Mine is doing just fine, thanks.
The person who approved the raid on Michael Cohen’s office is the Interim U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York Geoffrey S. Berman. May 5th is the deadline for Berman to be nominated by President Trump as the permanent U.S. Attorney. Berman was Rudy Guiliani’s law partner before Jeff Sessions chose him to be Interim U.S. Attorney. It will be interesting to see if the president still wants him after this raid.
