  1. This could be good news one more step closer to Trump’s wardrobe change to a jumpsuit and his introduction to his life mate Pinky.

  2. When they charge and convict Trump and everyone who did his dirty work that’ll be breaking news!

    1. @EagleZoo how do you think dictatorship happened in a free democracy?

    2. @EagleZoo as a stockholder of a country your good with the gm of the company saying he wants his people to stand up at attention like north Korean people do for Kim Jong.
      You are willing to give him your share?

    3. @infinitytoinfinitysquaredbitch you are ok with Trump saying he wants his people to stand up at attention like north Korean people do for Kim Jong. You are ok with Trump a gm and you as a stockholder of the country are good giving him your shares?

    4. @infinitytoinfinitysquaredbitch the man said publicly he wants what a dictator has. However you are ok with that.

    5. @infinitytoinfinitysquaredbitch I’m glad you are ok with giving up your shares. Trump publicly said in front of a camera. He wants what a dictator has. Trump in front of a camera said he wants you to stand up at attention and praise him.
      Wow

  3. Only Capone – I mean Trump – behind bars is what will begin to scrub the stench he left across this nation…

    1. @Tri Arb Yes. And he told them that NO, they MUST change their colors to ORANGE. The colors they had before won’t do.

    2. Capone is like a Sunday school kid as compared to Don the Con. Capone was not a president. Trump’s rap sheet is even longer than his arm.

    3. @Never Give Up maybe you should go back to “skool”. But that won’t happen because you heard that trump likes uneducated sheep er I mean followers.

    4. You Better Put All The Garbage in Washington There First!
      You won’t have any room for
      ANY ONE ELSE!

  4. “Weisselberg? Who is that? I may have allowed him to manage a couple of dollars, but he was my coffee boy. I never really knew him.”

    1. Lol even Ivanka tried saying she knew he was a Trump employee but didn’t know his position at Trump org…. he has been the CFO 30 years and he signed off her paychecks. Either lying or she really is a fool paying no attention to what went on for decades, or both!

    1. I think it would be funny if they all ran, scattering like rats.
      They could be tried in absentia, possibly have their assets frozen, or even confiscated, and have very few people or places to turn to for help.

      On the run with a lot of outstanding debt, and a warrant for their arrest?
      Almost sounds poetic…

    2. I’m pretty sure private airports don’t check vital items like papers and luggage. Huge problem worldwide.

    3. @M t for sure. But then we’re talking about a high profile person/ family that loves attention and is/ are used to getting their way because they have money

    1. @Hagnuj Prison time will never depend on whether someone is a populist or not. Nothing you can say will change this.

  5. “i hardly knew the guy. Some say he was a good guy. I met him once, maybe two times….”

    1. That would be a great Christmas gift, unfortunately we only have half of the country filled with patriots, and the other half dead set on trying to get an authoritarian dictator to take back his seat illegally. So until we lock up Donald trump, he still has the support of a little under half of the country who hates America enough to really push for the man who will destroy it to get back in office so he can finish the job. And the more messed up thing is they don’t think he’s a bad man, they truly believe he’s a great person who’s trying to do good things despite all of the evidence that points in the exact opposite direction of that.

  6. Funny how everyone that gets close to Trump ends up unpaid, in jail, or with their careers screwed.

    1. @infinitytoinfinitysquaredbitch Your “Conservatives” are a lie. Conservatives are not conservative — it’s a misnomer, a deceptive term. Trump was not a conservative. He was and is a pathological liar. He radically increased the national debt. He tried to steal the election with a brutal lie. That’s not conservatism in any sense. That’s autocracy, where the unelected guy lies & cheats to stay in power.

    2. The “beauty” of Trump’s career is that it’s so consistent and so predictable: he will always cheat, and alway lie, and always corrupt and screw everyone around him. He never varies from that path.

    3. @Stan Leeger
      I was discussing political philosophy but that’s clearly waaay above your pay grade. Trump did spend too much money but not nearly as much Break The Bank Biden is on pace to. And Trump didn’t try to steal an election; Democrats stole an election. That Doddering Fool you installed can’t take a crap without an aide to tell him where the toilet paper is. Now tell me why fascist Democrats want to expand the Supreme Court and eliminate the filibuster rule!

    4. @infinitytoinfinitysquaredbitch You fail at political philosophy, just as you fail at truth. Biden won the election. Period. If you can’t accept that, then you won’t accept that the sun is bright or that water is wet. Trump did try to steal the election. He started lying about a “rigged” election months before the election — offering no proof. He illegally slowed the mailed ballots. He incited a violent insurrection to stop Congress from certifying Biden’s win, and almost got is VP hanged to death from a gallows. He launched 60 frivolous lawsuits — so frivolous that they were rejected even by Republican judges. Those are all facts.

  7. This is the man keeping Trump “rich”.
    They don’t need to get Trump. Simply take this guy out and Trump org falls on it’s own.

    1. Yes, they’ll make wonderful bedfellows in jail. That is, unless Weisselberg turns in State’s evidence.

  8. Trump has a passport, money, foreign properties and a generations long family history of running from the law.. charge and arrest him ASAP

    1. The election has been certified and nothing will change that. No matter what antics the repuglican party trots out.

    2. @Paulus de Boskabouter
      It’s nice you agree that “in the US fascists started on the left side ” I was discussing political philosophy so let me repeat:
      Conservatives just want to be left alone. There is nothing fascist about “less government and lower taxes.” And it is DEMOCRATS who are talking about expanding the Supreme Court to get their way and ending the filibuster rule.

    3. @infinitytoinfinitysquaredbitch No you sound like an foreign operative. You were discussing nothing. Your knowledge is based on bulls**t. If conservatives want to left alone, they have to stop talking crap. I wrote that in the US fascism started at the left, but it ended on the right… the far right. Reading is to difficult?

    4. @Paulus de Boskabouter
      You just said NOTHING except your wack opinion:
      *So let me repeat:*
      Conservatives just want to be left alone. There is nothing fascist about “less government and lower taxes.” And it is DEMOCRATS who are talking about expanding the Supreme Court to get their way and ending the filibuster rule.

      But _I’d bet my house_ you totally agree with fascist Democrats trying to use the *iron fist* to rule the country, don’t you fascist boy!

  9. You can imagine Trump sitting in front of a mirror and practising in his most convincing voice “Allen Weisselberg who?”.

    1. CL…
      Yes, I can picture himz doingick that in Melania’s voice though…and possibly tryingink to vear some of her klothes, too…
      vith her favorite lipstick…
      Maybe, no one will notice the problem with no pants, if they just focus on the “I don’t care, do you..???
      jacket he put on…hmm…

    2. I can picture you in spelling class and how the class throws paper at you and laughs about how intellect challenged you are.

    3. If Trump’s family really loved him, they would lock him in a room and feed him through a slot in the door.

  10. This has been going on so long, I don’t want to hear about how “the walls are closing in”. Put that Orange Thing behind bars and be done with it.

  11. “Pain is finally going to rain down on the Trump Organization, perhaps Trump himself, perhaps starting with Weisselberg,” said former SDNY prosecutor John Flannery in reaction to the NYT report the Manhattan DA may soon charge Trump’s money man. What do you think of this latest development in the case?
