    Whole thing comes across as both a warning and a plea to his old boss.

    P.S. Welcome to our sitting potus, in which we can use language like "will so and so flip on him" because even mainstream perception of Trump is that he's a mafia goon.

    Fire is running low on this investigation, got to make sure it makes it to midterms because if it sputters out before then the democrats are done.

    If I'm to believe the right's rhetoric on the FBI NOW since 45 came to power, Cohen is lucky he himself didn't get ransacked.

    Boy, how time's have changed in such a short period.

    This opinion is based on what exactly, political wishful thinking, I imagine. When Congressional GOP members demand the Justic Dept show, what they got with zero regard of what information is being actively gathered, you must know it’s their fear of the midterms and their one way attitudes, what is good for them, such as refusing to seat SC justice, dragging out investigations such as Benghazi, only works for them when it benefits them. This is not an implication that Mueller is dragging this out for political reasons, although that certainly will be the GOP narrative. :oops:

    Democrats aren't running on Mueller's report, but Republicans will certainly spend the midterms running away from it.

    Repent Cohen, repent your sins and all will be forgiven.

    Wishful thinking.

    No evidence to support your fantastical post.

    p.s. What we do know is that Trump will start tweeting about Cohen and how he's a good man and this is a complete #WITCHHUNT!!!

    I’m waiting for the tweets about the FBI twisting a good man (yes, it’s a stretch) against Trump.

    Flip on what?
    Trump didn't do anything illegal.

    Great! Hopefully he'll stop trying to obstruct the investigation and go testify in front of Mueller.

    The Democrats are turning out in droves for their primaries (35k in my district vs 19k in 2016) and they're not campaigning on whether Cohen's gonna flip on Trump. More like whether the economy's going to flip on Trump, and whether GOP congress critters are gonna pay in November for having voted for dumb stuff like the tax heist and reinstating pre-existing conditions in health care coverage.

    Didnt you say something similar months ago? There is nothing suggesting that Mueller's investigation slowing in the slightest.

    Not that we know of, with a side of possible obstruction.

    Trump might be tweeting trash about the Senate before getting around to Cohen. I can hear it now. I give you a nice court pick and you do me this way on tariffs?

    Can't wait for the fallout, and the inevitable character assassination by Trump

    They planted that seed when the story first broke because they knew there was a pretty big shot Trump was involved somehow. Of course, they’re also banking on no one remembering that the story started with “We just were there to discuss adoptions” and then became “Conspiring with a foreign agent is just oppo research!”
