Seems a pretty safe bet that Ronny Jackson also acted as stenographer after wrapping Trump's recent 'medical'.

 

Like..

 

'How do feel, Mr. President?'

 

'Great. Very great. Never greater.'

 

'Good, good, I'll put down 'Greatest ever'. Blood pressure?'

 

'Absolutely excellent. Much more excellenter than Obama.'

 

'Right. I'll say...Better...than...Obama. What about Clinton?'

 

'Yeah better than him, too. And his Crooked wife. I might still put her in jail, smart b...'

 

'Blood...pressure...amazing. There. Sexual performance?'

 

'Which one? Dammit, Putin told me he wasn't gonna film that thing with the hookers! The Bolshy bast...!

 

'No, no, sir! I meant how's your, um, you know? Is it functioning proper...?'

 

'Oh, that. Yes, yes, of course, man! Often been compared to a donkey, y'know. Or a bull elephant. Ha, that thing with Stormy - she didn't wake up for twelve hours afterwards. And she only had to...'

 

'Sir, I don't think we need anything else, you're obviously in the bestest possible..uh..shape. I'll just get this typed up and you're good to go.'

 

'I like you, Ronny, you'll go far. Hang on, you've got some dandruff on your shoulder...'

ROFL If you came up with that post ..........Well done!

You've restored my faith in Geekzone ......unless of course you just reposted this from a political site that is blessed with a sense of humour (in which case I want to know where it came from). LOL

TRUMP DELETES NINE TWEETS WHILE ATTEMPTING TO SPELL “SUBPOENA”

 

WASHINGTON (The Borowitz Report)—Donald J. Trump deleted nine tweets early Wednesday morning in a failed attempt to spell the word “subpoena,” a White House source confirmed.

 

According to the source, Trump spent more than an hour angrily trying to spell the legal term before giving up in disgust.

 

“I’ve never seen him so enraged,” the source said. “He hates the word ‘subpoena’ more than the E.P.A. hates the words ‘climate’ and ‘change.’ ”

 

Having been flummoxed in the past while trying to spell such words as “heel” and “tap,” Trump now believes that the word “subpoena” is “out to get him,” the source said.

 

Speaking to reporters later in the morning, Trump called the word “subpoena” “disgraceful” and said that it had treated him “very unfairly,” but stopped short of threatening to fire it from the dictionary.

Trump is in panic mode:

 

Although a prosecutor's ability to compel the testimony of a sitting president is an unresolved legal question, losing this argument would leave him with three options: He lies, opening himself up to perjury charges; he tells the truth, torpedoing his administration; or he starts firing people to try and save himself from having to pick between those first two deeply unpleasant options. There are no other escape routes left.

Rudy Giuliani is supposed to be Trump's latest legal fixer, but one has to wonder if he knows which side he is on. First he states on Fox that Trump fired Comey because Comey refused to say if Trump was a subject of investigation. This contradicts what Trump has said and appears to amount to obstruction of justice. Then he says Trump not only knew about the Spanky payment, but even reimbursed it! Makes it kind of hard to maintain his claim that he knew nothing about it. At best this proves beyond dispute that the President of the USA is a lying SOB, maybe even a breaker of laws. Keep up the good work Rudy!

Cooper: Trump attacks report (and reporter), then confirms it

"White House lawyer Ty Cobb leaving his position is no surprise. New York Times' Maggie Haberman reported on the matter weeks before his departure, but at the time Trump denied the story and attacked her on Twitter. CNN's Anderson Cooper reports."

This is incredible.

 

As far as the Stormy payment goes, Rudy is claiming that Trump reimbursed Cohen the $130k (plus more) that Trump said he didn't know about, to cover up for something he claims he never did anyway.  After Rudy's Hannity admission, he goes on Fox & Friends saying that the payment was to save Trump's personal reputation - not for political reasons, then next minute he's saying "imagine what would have happened if this had come out in the middle of the last debate with Hillary".

 

So now it seems that the FBI had been tapping Cohen's phone, the raid on his office carried out as there had been a plan to destroy evidence.

 

Had all this come out during the election campaign, Trump's loyal supporters would have denied it was true and voted for him anyway, porking a porn star then paying her hush money isn't as "morally" bad as for example having an admission on tape - straight from the horse's mouth - about pussy grabbing etc.  He won anyway.

 

Trump must know that if he's required to give evidence under oath, he's stuffed - he'll either have to plead the fifth, lie and risk impeachment, tell the truth and risk impeachment.

 

It is now a constitutional crisis - this new tack might seem confused - like Grandpa Simpson is calling the shots, but it's based on an expectation or hope that the POTUS has immunity from prosecution - so forget about consequences from the justice system - double down and try to win in the court of public opinion.  

 

So if a POTUS does have immunity from prosecution - where does this start and end?  Immunity from prosecution for breaking campaign laws, obstructing justice etc?  Everything?  Can't be everything - or you could have a POTUS start literally cannibalising his enemies like Idi Amin.

The breaking news is that Cohen's phone was wiretapped, and that the tap almost certainly revealed that Cohen was about to destroy evidence - hence the no-knock warrant on his office etc. Let that sink in for a moment - the personal lawyer of the current US president was wiretapped - and then take a breath. Because of the wiretapping, that means that Mueller 100% knows everything about everything, including Stormy Daniels, because he has recordings of Trump and Cohen discussing it. In that light, Guiliani's new story makes a little bit of sense: he's trying to get out ahead of Trump getting caught in a lie under oath by coming up with this convoluted story that kinda-sorta allows that Trump paid but not really.

 

It's a weak play, but probably the best one they have now.

There is so much in the Giuliani interview. Another issue is he said that Trump paid Cohen back over a period of a few months. This has some interesting implications. Why did a supposed billionaire pay off $130K over a period of time? Was it because it took him some time to raise the cash? Waiting to after the election to dip into the campaign fund when no-one was looking? Or was it to avoid the mandatory disclosure of transfers over $10k? If the latter that is known as structuring and is the kind of activity that brings the attention of the IRS etc. It was similar activity which lead to the downfall of Elliot Spitzer (He was paying escorts in $9000 amounts).

It seems that in fact the FBI may not have been tapping Cohen's phone conversations, but monitoring and logging calls made without recording conversations.

 

Shame - but a risk when it looks like Trump is so close to being brought to justice to have high hopes based on inaccurate news reports.

 

There's 488 pages in this thread, there's probably on average a scandal per page, which is roughly a scandal for every day Trump has been POTUS.  Almost every one of those scandals would have been front page news for months if they were about Obama and any one of them would have destroyed him politically.

 

That the US public - or at least a significant % of them - are tolerating the endless BS from this president is tragic. Then you get to the probable reasons why they are tolerating it - and it looks far far worse.

It’s hard to keep up with the Trumpet. Now it emerges that his candidate’s medical report was not written by his physician, but by the Narcissist in Chief himself. In retrospect that should have been obvious because it is filled with phrases about his health being ‘astonishingly excellent’ and himself being the ‘healthiest individual ever elected to the presidency’ (and don't forget his fantasticest blood pressure and stratospheristalist cardiovascular strength and the most amazing crowds and the hugest ever vote and the biggest hands and whatever…)

Bad sign for Trump: Entire panel starts giggling at lawyer-du-jour Rudy Giuliani's interview.

Spoiler's:

- Trump's too busy to attend

- Trump's son-in-law is disposable

- Trump's daughter can't testify because she's a woman

- pleading to let Trump get out of office before subpoena

Rudy Giuliani: “President Donald Trump Can’t Be Subpoenaed”
