    Last month Trump said he wasn’t aware of the payment. What a liar.

    Trump most likely was tuned in... might get a news message that good ol' Rudy is dropped like a rock.

    Why is he on TV running his mouth in the first place? And saying things like this:

    https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/...with-remark-about-why-trump-fired-james-comey
    Rudy Giuliani, a new addition to President Trump's personal legal team, on Wednesday said Trump fired former FBI Director James Comey because the top law enforcement official wouldn't tell the president whether or not he was a target of the FBI investigation's into Russia interference in the 2016 election.

    "He fired Comey because Comey would not — among other things — say that he wasn't a target of the investigation," Giuliani told Fox News.

    "He is entitled to that. Hillary Clinton got that, and he couldn't get that. So he fired him, then he said, 'I’m free of this guy,'” the former New York City mayor added.

    We've gone from:

    No affair happened

    An affair happened, but it was consensual

    An affair happened, it was consensual, and she was paid

    She was paid, and signed an NDA

    No NDA exists

    An NDA exists, and since she spoke about the thing, she's violating the NDA

    Trump didn't sign the NDA and had no knowledge of the NDA, but she still violated it

    She was paid by Michael Cohen

    Cohen used his own money and was not reimbursed

    Trump didn't know about it

    Trump did know about it

    Trump reimbursed Cohen

    Maybe he’s mad he wasn’t able to bring Trump down back when he was a prosecutor and going up against Mafia members so he decided to join up with the team to take him down from the inside.

    Who cares?

    The Access Hollywood tape didn't do him in.

    As long as he didn't break any campaign laws, no one but anti-Trumpers care.

    Yes we know Trumpsters only care when Dems lie, not when Trump does. As for if it broke any campaign laws, that's what we have to wait to see. My guess is, you'ed still excuse it even if they did.

    Everyone knows Trump is a sex fiend. No one cared when JFK and RFK would take turns cheating on their wives with the same woman or Bill Clinton cheating on his wife with Flowers.

    If what he did wasn't illegal (which is if Rudy says is true and since you clearly agree with Rudy it is therefore not illegal) who cares?

    If the Access Hollywood tape didn't stop him no one is going to care about him with a porn star 10 years ago.

    Well, given what Trump has gotten away with, of course “who cares”. I remember when the right bashed Obama for reading from a TelePrompTer (Trump gets praised for staying on script), was bashed for being a community organizer (rather than a con) and was call the Campaigner in Chief... Trump literally holds rallies all the time. Oh, and Obama smoked a cigarette.. remember that infamous pic?

    Trump lies to everyone, and that includes his supporters.

    Con, as in convict?

    Obama was making shady ass deals with convicted felon Tony Rezko and Rezko got convicted during the 2008 election and no one heard about it (Clinton mentioned it once and was told to shut up about it).

    I don't think anyone really cares about the sex, I surely didn't say anything about it. The lying on the other hand is what was pointed out and we don't know if campaign laws were broken. I never said I agreed with Rudy, you have a problem of not understanding what people say. It seems I have to repeat myself again, your reading comprehension skills suck.

    Again this isn't about who he is ****ing, it's about if laws were broken in paying off a porn star with campaign funds. Remember, Trump stated he didn't know anything about the payment of $130k, I even posted the video of it in this very thread. That is a straight up lie and if he lied about that in an attempt to cover it up, what else is he covering up? The method of payment? Which is why Rudy just threw Trump under the bus stating he lied.

    Presidents lie about their past all the time.

    No one is going to care about this Stormy Daniels crap unless he did something illegal.
    --- Post Merged, May 2, 2018 ---
    Obama lied about his past with Louis Farrakhan. If Obama lied about that what else is he lying about? Birth certificate? His religion?

    Mueller and you lied about Iraq WMDs. If you're lying about hat (and previous statements on Russia), what else are you lying about?

    Obama nor his administration was under investigation. If you can find evidence of wrong doing by Obama or Mueller, investigate and prosecute if they broke the law.

    Yeah, Obama was part of the Deep State. Why else do you think they hid the Farrakhan photo for over 10 years?

    If anything, this investigation makes me feel we made the right choice with Trump.

    Didn't you liberals say Bush was a war criminal for his role in the Iraq War? So wouldn't Mueller be too by your definition? Oh wait nevermind, you're pro-Iraq War now. I forgot.

    Obama wasn't the one that had it to hide it. And this deep state is tin foil hat material.


    Yes we should all want the POTUS to be weighed down and distracted by investigations, it's so good for the country.

    /s

    It's sad I have to add the /s because you'll somehow take that as non satirical.



    When did I was I was pro war? Nothing Iv ever said suggests that. You like to stick words in people's mouths posts a lot. It's a bit childish.

    The Deep State is very, very much real.

    Example of the Deep State:



    Robert Mueller under oath:

    Or did Mueller lie under oath?

    Only in your head.




    Do you even realize what you just quoted me on and what you replied with have zero to do with each other? Again you're attempting to derail the thread because it makes Trump like what we all already know, that he's lying and Rudy just threw him under the bus with that comment.

    If you want to talk about Iraq and Mueller and deep state, start a new thread.

    I wasn't expecting you to talk about that video of Mueller and the Iraq War - I was about to edit my post and say ("I am not expecting a response"). People on other forums are dodging that video as well.

    You're going to hate it when in 2 months no one cares about this. Everyone keeps trying to make Stormy Daniels happening, and no one is caring.

    So I read the entire interview and LMAO, if anything, this vindicates the President. If Trump's lawyer had his office raided over something legal, and Trump is innocent, what else is Trump innocent of?

    Giuliani did say Trump paid back the money, but he said he ad him on a 35k/month retainer to repay him and then some. He didn't repay him for that direct "legal" arrangement. He paid him back by paying him in huge retainer costs.

    “It’s going to turn out to be perfectly legal. That money was not campaign money,” the former New York City mayor told Hannity. “Sorry, I’m giving you a fact now that you may not know. It’s not campaign money. No campaign finance violation.

    “They funneled it through a law firm?” Hannity clarified.

    “They funneled through a law firm and the president repaid it,” Giuliani confirmed.

    “I know how much money he put into that campaign and I said 130,000, they could do a couple of checks for 130,000. When I heard Cohen’s retainer of $35,000 when he was doing no work for the president. I said that’s how he’s repaying.”

    When asked if he believed POTUS knew the specifics of why he was reimbursing Cohen, Giuliani offered “he didn’t know about the specifics of it, as far as I know, but he did know Michael would take care of things like this.”

    “I take care of things like this for my clients. I don’t burden them with every single thing that comes along.”

    Again it's not about sex with Daniels, it's about how they dealt with it. People care that the President is a serial liar and care if he broke the law. That is what the investigation will tell.
