    but news outlets are saying ...

    Yeah, they say a lot of things, much of it BS and will say anything if they can twist it to attack Trump. Sorry, but does anyone actually believe what the news media tells them anymore? It sounds like there are still some suckers who haven't cottoned on to what is happening. They have lost credibility and should be turned off.

    Maybe you've missed the number of public events/appearances where she has literally pushed or slapped Trump's hand away!

    I only recall one and it was BRILLIANT because it was in Saudi Arabia and it was a subtle but powerful message to the women there that they don't have to be passive. That's how I read it as soon as I saw it. Context matters.

    The only people who believe in the news media are people who are Democrats

    @minimus:

    Not true. According to the previous page, zombies now hate Trump too.

    Getting all heated up to defend Donald Trump is very strange.

    It's like getting all heated up to defend Hillary Clinton.

    One of them will feed your desire to make the country safer by keeping out the "wrong" type of foreigner the other will feed your desire to make the country safer by embracing the "right" type of foreigner.

    Neither of them will do much to make your life better.

    The UK Spectator magazine is a conservative (right wing) news magazine that seems to nearly always support the UK Conservative party/government.

    So I was surprised to see them publishing this story by a BBC reporter:

    Trumpworld is spinning out of control

    The fate of Donald Trump’s presidency now hangs on what Michael Cohen will say

    But if there was no highly organised conspiracy, that does leave open the possibility of collusion. When the Russians offered help, the Trump campaign seemed only too eager to accept. Does that mean President Trump knew of Russian hacking and other illegal acts before they took place? Lanny Davies, Cohen’s lawyer, hints that it does mean exactly that. The President may have known ‘ahead of time’ what the Russians were doing. The fate of the Trump presidency now hangs on what Michael Cohen will say.

    We live in interesting times, don't we? Trump sloganised that he would make American Great again. Perhaps he will further diminish the American Empire.

    I think there is faint small chance he will get impeached, but realistically I think the majority of the population of the US has had enough of the guy, they dont respect him, the Republican party doesn't respect him as well as the majority of the world's political leaders .

    I would even say he's on route to sinking the Republican party to dismal proportions .

    The Mid term elections will tell a story of what will most likely happen in the foreseeable future like in 2020 .

    Just bring to light why Trump is swimming in hot water ........

    First, former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort was convicted on eight out of 18 tax and bank fraud charges brought against him by Trump-Russia special prosecutor Robert Mueller. Truth be told, that had been expected by many observers, but it gave Mueller renewed momentum.

    More electrifying was the announcement — it all happened within the space of a few minutes — that the president’s onetime lawyer, Michael Cohen, pleaded guilty not only to tax charges involving his personal business but also to a campaign finance violation stemming from the $130,000 in hush money paid to Stormy Daniels, the fading porn actress who had a sexual encounter with Trump back in 2006 but threatened to go public with the story right before the 2016 election.

    This was what got everyone so excited: The allegation was that the payoff was, in effect, an illegal contribution to the Trump campaign because it was intended to keep Daniels quiet and thus increase Trump’s chances of winning the election. As such, it violated strict limits on what individuals, like Cohen, can contribute to a campaign. Cohen pleaded to a felony.

    Most importantly, during the course of the plea, Cohen said that he arranged the Daniels payoff ‘in coordination with and at the direction of a candidate for federal office,’ and that he did it ‘for the principal purpose of influencing the election’— language taken straight from the statute.

    The ‘candidate’ was obviously Trump, and by saying he broke the law at Trump’s direction, Cohen implicated Trump in committing a crime.

    It’s hard to exaggerate how excited the Washington punditocracy became upon hearing this news. The president’s close associate says Trump committed a felony!

    Was going to start a new thread, but there's lots of good info on here and maybe some folks haven't seen it.

    Latest development:

    Trump was quoted by NBC News earlier this year that Manafort was the only person who might cause him damage if he flipped.

    Well, it turns out Manafort just flipped:

    https://www.apnews.com/21654827e65742e08752af17bd7e5e83/The-Latest:-Ex-Trump-campaign-boss-Manafort-pleads-guilty

    We don't know what Manafort gave up to get his deal...it is possible that there is nothing directly related to Trump himself....But I'm quite sure Trump's legal team is working furiously to find out what exactly it was.

    Analysis here:

    One quote:

    “The investigation now gains even more legitimacy in the eyes of the public because, in pleading guilty,

    Manafort is essentially announcing that Mueller’s investigation is spot-on regarding the crimes he committed,”

    said Glenn Kirschner, a former federal prosecutor in Washington, D.C. “So this continues to chip away at the

    witch-hunt argument.”
