That's a great article, and especially powerful given Barr's supreme loyalty to Trump throughout his presidency.

I would love to see Paulry's response to this short, simple article.

Why? You can’t reason someone out of a position they didn’t reason themselves in to.

you could show some people dozens of well written factual articles and it wouldn’t make a blind bit of difference.

Redacting the Mueller report and stifling witnesses put Barr and the DoJ firmly in Trump's pocket in 2019, so he was working to the same ends, but if deserting an obviously sinking ship is all it takes to erase that it's a bargain for him. He didn't actually meet with any Russian spies; he just did what he was told, and obstructed justice so the President couldn't be impeached for obstructing justice.

New York prosecutors on Thursday charged the Trump Organization, Trump Payroll Corporation and Chief Financial Officer Allen Weisselberg with 15 felony counts in connection with an alleged tax scheme stretching back to 2005, in an extraordinary legal development against the former President's namesake company.

Are Trump and his supporters calling for anyone to be locked up?

Default Re: President Trump.

The feds are bluffing with ace-king of clubs against a pair of sevens and waiting for the flop.
Weisselberg knows his pair's weak but another seven might give him a set.
Against that, the ace-king stands a chance with six outs to better the sevens.
The flop today didn't help anyone, but the ten of clubs, jack of clubs and three of diamonds has the feds betting heavy promising a gut-shot straight and possible flush.
That's where we are today.
Weisselberg thinks he's ahead but he's not sure.
The feds are hoping Wesselberg'll fold as the pot size get heavy.
The Turn'll put pressure on them both and then it's down to the River.
Everyone's sweating at the moment, but the feds are chip leaders with a really big pile of chips, and Weisselberg, aged 75, well he's looking at his pitiful pile with just a few blinds, can't afford to lose many more and might just go all-in and the feds are bound to call.
Exciting isn't it?

I hate to say it, but I've never played any of the games (if more than one!) that you are referencing here, so this is somewhat over my head! However, I can imagine what you are saying is, Weisselberg is probably screwed. We live in hope.

I suspect they're hoping that he'll now dish the dirt on others, since they are charging him with everything that applies and he's likely to be wanting to "cooperate" in order to reduce his sentence.

Trump's current defence seems to be "everyone does it". Ok then.
