Check again. I just got done watching a FOX piece on this. Use your Google fingers.

Tucker Carlson's show was on, as it is every night from 8-9 pm and he had footage from a Trump rally. He's now talking about this?

I'm watching again and he's not talking about it. Instead he's talking about how "Democrat extremism" is going to backfire in November and he's hosting Dana Perino who is just blasting Leftists. Are you watching FOX News West Coast or something? I think they have two kinds.

I just googled "Cohen pleads guilty" and the first FOX article on the subject is on page three and it is titled "Michael Cohen admits violating campaign finance laws in plea deal, agrees to 3-5 year sentence". I haven't seen them discuss it on live shows yet. We'll see.

Glenn Beck explained to his listeners this morning that these things don’t matter to Republicans (and presumably Fox’s primary audience) because the Left didn’t like GW Bush or Romney.

That’s some high-level logic happening, there. ; )

I've seen this line of thought a few times now. Trump is the Left's penance for rejecting all those fine moderate Republicans over the years. If we had just accepted Romney none of this would have happened!

Now that Cohen has confessed to committing crimes at Trump's direction and Manafort is a convicted felon, I wonder if Trump will be foolish enough to pardon them, and any other former advisors convicted of committing crimes on his behalf. I have very little doubt that he is actually that stupid.
It is tough to say, I imagine Cohen is mostly dead to Trump giving the implications of his plea. To Cohen's credit he says he would not accept a pardon from Trump. Obviously easy to say ahead of it happening, maybe a bit harder to turn down in the moment.

Well if we believe his lawyer on Morning Joe today looks like we have our answer: "Cohen's lawyer says he's completely flipped and will give information of Trump-linked conspiracy with Russia" .

Man, the silence from Republicans on this is deafening. I guess it takes time to determine how long it will be before it dawns on enough people, "Hmmmm... I guess this Russia thing isn't a hoax."

Well, in that case it at least seems highly unlikely that Trump will offer Cohen a pardon, but Manafort is a slightly different kettle of fish. I would not be at all surprised if Trump offerred him a pardon, and even less doubt that he would eagerly accept it, if offered. He is probably counting on it and praying for it!

Not Tucker Carlson. Let me see if I can dig up a link to what I saw. It was that one reporter who sits front row at the White House press briefings. I don't know anything much about FOX television. I don't watch television to begin with.

ETA: Wait a sec. Maybe it was CNN. I'll try to find what I was talking about anyway.

ETA: John Roberts/FOX

Kevin I think it was this. In any case, it was this reporter John Roberts.

Trump spoke with Fox News about Cohen. In the interview, Trump said that he thinks "flipping" (i.e. cooperating with prosecutors) should be illegal.

God bless America.

Of course he also said that violating campaign finance law was... wait for it... not illegal either. If this was a T.V. show we would all be blasting it for its over the top ridiculousness.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions pushed back forcefully Thursday against fresh criticism from President Trump, saying the Justice Department would not be “improperly influenced by political considerations.”

The extraordinary statement came hours after Trump lashed out anew at Sessions, saying he had failed to take control of the Justice Department and was given his job only because of his loyalty during the 2016 campaign.


Because choosing folks to head up the most important Federal departments and agencies should be decided first by loyalty to the President.

Swampiest swamp ever.

I think the simplest way to explain the disaster of the Trump presidency is that you have a narcissist whose success in business was predicated on personal loyalty. He has tried to govern in the same fashion, but his narcissism is so severe that he unable to adapt to a system where he is surrounded by people whose first loyalty is to the rule of law.

Trump Closely Involved In Killing FBI’s Move Out Of Washington, Emails Show

Opening up the FBI’s Pennsylvania Avenue location for redevelopment would have created competition for Trump International Hotel.

This would be a massive scandal in any normal world, but will probably get little attention in Trumps' universe.

Rachel Maddow explains why Trump fired Sessions and replaced him with a loyalist.

Because the House is about to get a file from law enforcement that would be used for impeachment, but the House cannot receive that file if the Attorney General nukes it.
