    Rule #1 for successful gangsters – Don’t draw attention to yourself. So Trump ran for President….

    • The worse thing ever to happen to Trump was win the election in 2015. Now he’s exposed to all kinds of criminal activities that won’t go away. Prison is around the corner for the man who brought hatred and division to America. The hatred continues today because of him. White supremist back him all the way because of that. He’s the devil claiming to be a GOD. That’s a big laugh!

    • @DUMP TRUMP it’s ok to be confused….

    • @Evan – It’s okay tp be Russian like you, but please move back there.

    • Agreed! and hopefully it will be his downfall! Saying that I think he is untouchable!

    • @DUMP TRUMP I’m automatically Russian because I challenge your position lol

    Loving it that Glen was a guest because “justice matters”!!

  3. Lock him up!!

    • If ‘Weaselberg’ have a brain, he better throw in the white flag and give up everything he knows. He’s Trump’s financial accountant, so he have ALL of the info or money trail needed.

  4. Lock him up. Lock him up. Lock him up!!!!

  5. “Because Justice Matters!”

  6. The future of the USA requires that all criminals face prosecution.

  7. I have no doubt that Cohen will testify against Trump.

      unless of course a wheel barrel full of unmarked cash happens to show up

    • Yes, he already has.

    • Wait What? Ok! | March 16, 2021 at 4:16 AM | Reply

      Me either!
      Because he’s a
      F’N RAT!

      @A LT not revenge, I believe Mr Cohen wants to clear his conscience for all the terrible thing he participated in! Just my opinion.

    • Dave Rodgers | March 16, 2021 at 6:55 PM | Reply

      @Billy Cloudy I don’t believe trump would bribe anyone if he could get his way by threatening them, yeh, he paid off Stormy because he couldn’t threat her, everyone else….. I also can’t believe that a guy who doesn’t pay his lawyers would bribe anyone, but I could be wrong.

    I betcha Dumpf knows exactly who Cohen is now, and not his coffee boy either lol!

    Michael Cohen did the crime, came clean, served his time, and now he’s a great asset to our country. Thank you Mike!

  10. Now you see why Trumpo went to great lengths to try and steal the election. It would have kept him free of prosecution. Welcome back to civilian life Trumpo.

    • I saw today Georgia may charge him with racketeering for that shakedown phone call to their AG.

      Funny, thats exactly what blind sheep say.

    • Blind sheep Trumpo supporters.

    • @DUMP TRUMP Yes, commonly known as a false prophet, one thing the Bible warns you of. I’m not religious, but I see the irony 🤷‍♂️.

    Use the RICO laws. The best way to punish a rich person is to turn him into a poor person.

    • RICO stands for
      R: rich
      I: in
      C: chains
      O: ouch

    • and by the way the Rico twist is brilliant.

      Imagine driving a yellow Yugoslav, but of course saying while he was driving: “this is the bestest most incredible amazing and powerfulest Yugo ever made, anywhere in this galaxy, and probably the universe…and Lincoln never had. Yugo like this”

      Meanwhile he asks his fellow African American driver to turn left while drinking a diet coke from a paper cup in the minuscule back seat

    • @Almost Censored DID you go too school FOR THAT condition you HAVE BECAUSE YOU’RE due a refund. A HUGE refund.

      Absolutely.

      @Almost Censored Go be stupid someplace else.

    I hope someone is tapping phones, I imagine trump is doing the rounds… ☎️

    • You can BET on it

    • Almost Censored | March 13, 2021 at 3:41 PM | Reply

      The best part is that everyone leaving a comment for this post will once again be devastated by the awesome power of Trump.

      You are all fools strung along by a mass of lying liberals.

    • @Almost Censored “…everyone leaving a comment for this post will once again be devastated by the awesome power of Trump.” – Does that include you?

    • Almost Censored | March 14, 2021 at 3:50 AM | Reply

      @Red DwarfThe Republic will fall when the Government bribes taxpayers with their own money.

    • I believe there are satellites now in orbit which can zoom in on any phone call made in the USA. But I believe the Trump swamp of connections through appointments, etc. is currently so deep in the Defense Department, Justice Department, IRS, etc. that any calls by Trump, his children or to Trump, his children will be kept confidential. However satellites from other friendly countries can also take in all the calls concerning Trump & his children including the private financial calls from say one of his children when he received USA Top Level Security Clearance by Trump. So I believe it will now be checkmate for the King & his children & if Russia is also maybe involved with a USA construction company with their contractors to construct (like the Moscow Trump Tower) military bases in Russia without the consent or knowledge of the IRS or USA Government, I believe that would be treason – but what a way to go.

  13. I think they should be giving Cohen a bodyguard.

  14. To quote Kimberly Guilfoyle – “The best is yet to come!”

    Can’t wait for the sound of the jail door slamming on the worst most corrupt president in US history.

    • He’ll NEVER spend a night in jail. He’s gonna miss out on the “Lumberjack Special” Mornin’ Eye opener of DOC Cuisine!! He’ll NEVER have to share his TV. Poor Fella.

    • 👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾

    • trump is untouchable!

      @Gerry Ward if that is true, that makes a mockery of the US being a democracy based on the rule of law!, with no man being above the law!

    • Walt G Zerod | March 24, 2021 at 9:57 AM | Reply

      @Gerry Ward When we mix Man & money we get corruption. I don’t think he’s “untouchable” per se, but I’m sure he can “match” the financial incentive of Prosecution. Thanks for responding!!

  16. Get him, get him good. Get the Orange Man.

  17. Use RICO to go after all of his assets – I mean everything – including his toothbrush and underwear.

    • The underwear might fetch a few bucks on E Bay for collectors of the grotesque?

    • @Tony D’Arcy , I think the underwear will fetch far, far more than a few bucks. He’s got millions of stupid die-hard MAGA followers who will do anything to kiss his ring and collect his memento. For them, it would be like trying to possess The Holy Grail. Many of them actually believe Tramp is the reincarnation of their savior Jesus… That’s why it’s important to go after his underwear, so the government can sell it on eBay to raise millions of $ off of stupid MAGA worms.

    • Yeah, Trump is such a sissy that he has someone brush his teeth for him. He has never done a days WORK in his pampered life !!!!!!

    Looks like The Orange One might end up regretting having betrayed Michael Cohen. This is getting good.

    • As “president”, he thought he was untouchable, and counted on getting a second term, so throwing Cohen away like garbage didn’t cost him a thought. It really puts his “stolen election” lies into perspective. Deliciously so.

    The chicken isn’t coming home to roost the turkey is coming home to be roasted.

  20. this last election was all about 4 more years of criminal immunity
