Writing in Bloomberg,Tim O’Brien has predicted that the coming months will be excruciatingly painful for Trump, as House Democrats conduct a thorough probe of his personal finances.
The Associated Press (AP) is reporting this morning about Donald Trump’s new strategy for dealing with the many investigations he is facing from federal and state prosecutors, as well as from House Democrats. Apparently the president plans to keep fighting without realizing he has already lost the battle.
The mainstream media has long insisted that there is a Department of Justice (DOJ) policy that prevents it from indicting a sitting president. However, there actually is no such policy. As a result, Donald Trump may very well be indicted and charged with various crimes while he is still in office.
A change to House rules will greatly help Democratic investigations of President Trump and his administration, according to a new report from The Hill.
The change allows staff of House committees to conduct interviews of witnesses under oath without any members of Congress present. This frees up the time of legislators to do other work while their staff depose the many witnesses in their investigations.
Democrats in the House will soon launch a “vast” and comprehensive series of investigations into Donald Trump’s ties to Russia.
And, according to a new report, the focus of the investigations will be on Trump’s criminal relationship with Vladimir Putin, and the alleged money laundering and other crimes that they committed together.

On Thursday BuzzFeed News published allegations that he instructed his former attorney Michael Cohen to lie to Congress about a proposed Trump Tower real estate project in Moscow. And even though Bob Mueller’s office has attacked the accuracy of BuzzFeed’s reporting, the news site is standing by it, saying it is accurate. And as the truth comes out after Mueller’s final report is issued, and Cohen testifies before Congress on February 7, we may find out that the BuzzFeed story was indeed true.
A BuzzFeed News report published late Thursday night found that President Donald Trump has been implicated in federal crimes by directing Michael Cohen to lie to Congress.

With all of the news that has come out recently about crimes committed by Donald J. Trump, many people are asking this one all-important question: How the heck can this joker still be President of the United States?

Two top lawyers say it is now time for President Donald Trump to negotiate a plea deal and resign from office in order to minimize his legal liability.

A conservative newspaper, The Washington Examiner, published an article today citing legal experts who discussed the topic of Donald Trump’s impeachment.

Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist David Cay Johnston is now reporting that an international human rights organization has requested that prosecutors in The Netherlands open a criminal investigation into several multi-billion dollar money laundering schemes that were facilitated by Donald Trump’s lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, and a law firm where he used to work.
Even though the statutes of limitations may have expired for criminal tax fraud (because the events took place so long ago) that would not be the case for the imposition of civil tax penalties. Which would mean Trump and his family may be on the hook for hundreds of millions of dollars. It is not far-fetched to think that this could possibly wipe out his entire net worth and bankrupt him.
- He undermined the credibility of law enforcement officials, such as the FBI and the Department of Justice, and
- He furthered the idea that there is a conspiracy being run to harm Donald Trump and his associates, who have done nothing wrong.

In the course of Michael Cohen’s guilty plea this week, the president’s former lawyer admitted his part in a high-level cover-up, including the use of hush money, designed to influence the 2016 election. And he accused President Trump of directing this violation.
There are two big unanswered questions concerning yesterday’s Michael Cohen plea deal:
- Is Cohen a cooperating witness who has “flipped” on Trump and will be working with prosecutors to bring down the president?
- Since Trump has not been indicted as a co-conspirator, when might that change and when might the president actually be indicted?
It appears that the answer to #1 is “yes” which leaves as the real mystery the second question.
Most of the mainstream media commentators who are talking about this right now seem to be of the opinion that Trump will not be indicted either by Mueller or by the team of Justice Department prosecutors in the Southern District of New York (where Cohen pleaded guilty). And they may be right, because there is very little precedent to go on concerning presidential indictments, and Justice Department guidelines seem to prohibit it.
Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA), the ranking Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee, threw cold water on Trump's witch hunt claims by saying that there is evidence of a Trump/Russia criminal conspiracy.
New York Governor Andrew Cuomo this week has made a criminal case against Donald Trump much more likely.

One thing that was accomplished with Rod Rosenstein’s announcement of 12 new indictments against Russians on Friday was to provide proof once again that Roger Stone has a long history of lying.
To go through all of the many provable instances of Stone’s lying would take too much time, but there are a few key examples that show Stone has been lying from the beginning about his personal involvement in the hacking of Hillary Clinton and DNC emails and about his relationship with the Russian government.

Editor’s Note 11:30 Am: There were two titles on this article, one was incorrect (titles are filled in at the top and bottom of a post, the bottom is filled in automatically and doesn’t update with changes but it is the one used on some social media). The Senators said Trump could be, not is, guilty of obstruction of justice. This has been corrected.
In April we reported that Alan Dershowitz believes the president is above the law. On Tuesday night the former Harvard law professor went on CNN to give another ridiculous opinion, saying that he believes it is legal for the president to obstruct justice.
