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.....

I decide who the enemies are.

I voted for Trump, and Trump's policies, which included good relations with Russia, trade restrictions, and other measures that are unpopular with certain entrenched power bases.

Said entrenched power bases have seized the prosecutorial arm of government to try to thwart my will by seeking to destroy the administration of the President I elected to carry out the policies I support.

The objective of the enemy is to prevent the change I want, by using law enforcement to destroy my chosen agent of change.

Because they are trying to stop the change I want, they are by definition the enemy. Because of the tactics they have chosen to use - the only ones available to them as they otherwise have lost control of the government, they must be defeated.

Because they have pulled out some of the stops to try to stop what I want, I want to pull out all of the stops to destroy them so I can get what I want.

I don't particularly care about the corruption of my agents. All men of power are corrupt. Presidents are term limited. They do what they do. As long as they achieve my objectives, I overlook their crimes and corruption. When they try to stop what I want, I want them destroyed as quickly and effectively as possible so that I can achieve what I want.

This is the mindset of Bill Clinton, and his approach to governance. It is effective. I agree with it.

Nixon was a wimp. He resigned. He should have burned the country to the ground and let it destroy itself in a civil war rather than letting the enemies win.

I want my ideas to win. If the democratic processes get there, great. If they don't, then other means are required. Remember: I supported the Civil War and the burning of Georgia to end slavery. WHATEVER it takes.

The Rule of Law is a nice tool. As long as everybody respects it, great. But the enemies don't respect it. They use it cynically. The Clintons handle their enemies very effectively.

John Dean was able to pull a John Dean because Nixon was a milquetoast.

There were no Clinton or Obama-era John Deans. I wonder why that is. Because the Clintons and Obamas were not corrupt?

No, that's not it.

Hmmmm, then, I wonder why.

I want to do what the Clintons and Obamas do to defeat their enemies. It is effective. Nixonian tactics fail. Clintonian tactics win. I like to win.

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.
