Last week, several news outlets obtained financial records showing that Michael Cohen, President Trump’s personal attorney, had used a shell company to receive payments from various firms with business before the Trump Administration. In the days since, there has been much speculation about who leaked the confidential documents, and the Treasury Department’s inspector general has launched a probe to find the source. That source, a law-enforcement official, is speaking publicly for the first time, to The New Yorker, to explain the motivation: the official had grown alarmed after being unable to find two important reports on Cohen’s financial activity in a government database. The official, worried that the information was being withheld from law enforcement, released the remaining documents.

What of the missing SARs? From whom did the additional $3 Million come?

Who gave the order to remove the SARs from the database?

For a law-enforcement agent to risk everything to expose this coverup speaks to the seriousness of the matter and suggests that the leaker may have shared even more details with Avenatti.

Cohen is in deep shit.

What will he be willing to do to save his ass?

We know the answer......

Trump should fire Mueller and Rosenstein, appoint a special prosecutor to look into collusion at the FBI between Comey, Mueller and the rest of the team, issue general pardons to Flynn, Manafort and Cohen, and then re-hire Flynn.

They're all abusing their power. He has more power, and should abuse it to break them.

Fuck it.

Listen to you.....advocating the abuse of presidential power to "break" officers of the Justice Department........

That's some Nixonian shit right there............

Nixon is not my example of anything. He sat around, got drunk, whined, took half measures, and ultimately committed political hari-kari out of shame.

My model for dealing with enemies is the Clintons. They win. And their adversaries fall silent.

dealing with enemies

Enemies....

In this case, Cohen is the enemy.

He is the enemy of the Rule of Law and the enemy of representative government.

He is a thug who engaged in a shake-down scheme to sell influence - and along the way lined his own pockets and maybe the pockets of others in government.

This was pay-to-play at it's worst - and it was wrong.

Because Cohen will ultimately pull a "John Dean" makes him also POTUS enemy #1.....

He only has to do that if Trump doesn't fire the prosecutors, stop the investigations, and give Cohen a plenary pardon (if still necessary).

Trump should step in and end the charade.

He's probably waiting until the mid-terms.

It's a foolish tactic.

give Cohen a plenary pardon

If Mr. Cohen has indeed committed the crimes for which he is being investigated, why would you argue for him to be pardoned?

He must be held accountable and be punished if convicted, wouldn't you agree?

Surely you're not suggesting that he is, because of his position, "above the law"?

I don't agree with any of it.

Every adult can be prosecuted for felonies if subjected to an inquisition. None are without crime.

I am not suggesting that he is "above the law". I am simply stating the fact that our legal system is rotten and oppressive, and is being harnessed here to make political prosecution.

Part of our legal system includes the power of chief executives to pardon people, and to command law enforcement. If the President has committed crimes sufficient to anger the bulk of Congress, he can be impeached. That's the system.

The enemy doesn't want what Trump wants to do, so they're resorting to the Inquisition. My answer is to Trump the inquisition with the power of the king.
