Where’s the Collusion?
Saturday, August 25, 2018
“Where’s the Collusion,” Donald Trump repeatedly remarked to his audience during his rally at the Charleston Civic Center in West Virginia last Tuesday evening (August 21st), which took place immediately following the news of the Paul Manafort convictions and Michael Cohen guilty pleas – both in United States District Court.
Although Trump made some brief remarks regarding Tuesday’s jury verdict convicting his former Campaign Chairman, Paul Manafort on eight felony charges, he did not remark about the guilty pleas entered in United States District Court by his personal attorney and “fixer,” Michael Cohen.
Counts seven (7) and eight (8) of the information to which Cohen pleaded guilty are the two counts that expressly and directly implicate Donald J. Trump personally, the Trump Organization, The National Enquirer tabloid and its publisher, David Pecker in criminal conspiracies – “conspiracy” is a synonym for “collusion,” as anyone can check in any thesaurus.
As of Tuesday, August 21, 2018, Donald J. Trump is an un-indicted co-conspirator in at least two (2) criminal charges in a United States District Court.
The exact language from the United States District Court transcript of Michael Cohen’s pleas to counts Seven and Eight are below. The “candidate” for federal office is later identified in court documents as The President of the United States, and the media company is The National Enquirer, and its CEO and publisher, David Pecker.
Michael Cohen Sworn Testimony:
“As to Count No. Seven, on or about the summer of 2016, in coordination with, and at the direction of, a candidate for federal office, I and the CEO of a media company at the request of the candidate worked together to keep an individual with information that would be harmful to the candidate and to the campaign from publicly disclosing this information.
After a number of discussions, we eventually accomplished the goal by the media company entering into a contract with the individual under which she received compensation of $150,000. I participated in this conduct, which on my part took place in Manhattan, for the principal purpose of influencing the election.
Your Honor, as to Count No. Eight, on or about October of 2016, in coordination with, and at the direction of, the same candidate, I arranged to make a payment to a second individual with information that would be harmful to the candidate and to the campaign to keep the individual from disclosing the information.
To accomplish this, I used a company that was under my control to make a payment in the sum $130,000. The monies I advanced through my company were later repaid to me by the candidate.
I participated in this conduct, which on my part took place in Manhattan, for the principal purpose of influencing the election.” End - Michael Cohen Sworn Testimony.
The payments were made to conceal the affairs that Donald Trump had with adult film star, Stormy Daniels and former Playboy model Karen McDougal, and according to Cohen’s sworn testimony, Donald Trump directed those payments for the purpose of affecting his campaign for the presidency.
The National Enquirer engaged in a practice commonly referred to as “catch and kill,” whereby the publisher pays for a story, has the individual sign a non-disclosure agreement (NDA) and then kills the story – never to be seen again by anyone, and protected from release by the NDA. This catch and kill is what occurred with Ms. Karen McDougal regarding her nearly year-long affair with Donald Trump. Cohen’s testimony is also corroborated with tape recordings he made with Donald Trump. Therefore, Donald Trump corroborates these illegal activities in his own voice.
In an extremely rare move, the Unites States prosecutors for the Southern District of New York have granted immunity to National Enquirer publisher and CEO, David Pecker for his testimony. The National Enquirer has a large safe, which contained decades of Donald Trump’s darkest secrets, and the collusion that had occurred to keep those secrets out of the media.
In yet an additional and extremely rare move, the Unites States prosecutors for the Southern District of New York have granted immunity to Allen Weisselberg, longtime chief financial officer of the Trump Organization.
Weisselberg’s tenure with the Trump organization goes all the way back to when Trump’s father, Fred Trump ran the organization. Weisselberg has intimate knowledge of all financial dealings involving Donald Trump, and he is now providing information to both federal and state prosecutors.
At about the time of Trump’s inauguration, it was announced that Donald Trump, Jr, Eric Trump and Allen Weisselberg would take over control of the Trump organization. The talk on the street is, “Weisselberg knows where ALL of the bodies are buried.”
Weisselberg has detailed information regarding all of the Trump bankruptcies, how he recovered from a four-billion dollar bankruptcy in Atlantic City, his tax returns and where he mange to secure funding after U.S. based banks would no longer lend to Trump or his enterprises. The path is leading to Russian-mob money, which is controlled by Russian oligarchs, who are all controlled by Vladimir Putin.
At his juncture, Donald Trump has got to feel like the entire universe is crashing down on him, at light speed with its entire mass. Well, it is!
The “collusion,” and conspiracy, election fraud and a plethora of other federal and state charges are coming. We will likely see Donald Trump, Jr., Eric Trump and Ivanka Trump charged in connection with the criminal investigation into the Trump Organization Charities, where Allen Weisselberg also served as treasurer. The Manhattan District Attorney has also taken an interest in bring charges against the Trump family members. The President of the United States cannot pardon state crimes. The Presidential pardon authority only extends to federal crimes.
If anyone is making book on whether or not Jared Kushner will be criminally indicted, the sure bet is that he will. Mr. Kushner’s legal issues are an entirely autonomous and lengthy article.
It is now becoming crystal clear that there was a coordinated effort to illegally, and criminally influence the 2016 election in favor of Donald Trump, by his associates, employees, campaign staff, Russia and Donald Trump personally.
Despite Secretary Clinton having received over three million more votes, Trump won the Electoral College by razor thin margins in only four states – Pennsylvania, Ohio, Michigan and Wisconsin. Trump only won those states by a total of roughly 70,000 votes – verses the three million popular vote victory by Secretary Clinton.
On a normal news day, a House representative being indicted would be a major headline. However, on Tuesday, with Manafort and Cohen guilty verdicts and pleas, followed with Trump’s CFO, Allen Weisselberg and long-time confidant David Pecker flipping and cooperating with federal and state prosecutors, the two House Representatives that first endorsed Trump as a presidential candidate, and are now facing criminal indictments is comparatively dust in the wind.
California Republican House Representative Duncan Hunter and his wife were both indicted on charges that they used hundreds of thousands of dollars from campaign funds to pay for personal vacations and other personal items, and filed falsified campaign finance reports.
According to statements by Duncan Hunter, he was unaware of any of the financial transactions, because his wife handled all of the money. Albeit, that legal strategy arguably strains credibility, Hunter is still a candidate for reelection.
Only in the current Trump enabled political environment can an individual indicted on felony charges, and arguably in a tenuous and focus distracting marriage dispute, be running for The United States House of Representative’s – California 50th District as a Republican.
Just days before, New York Republican House Representative Chris Collins was indicted on charges of insider trading and securities fraud in connection with a pharmaceutical company where Collins served on the Board of Directors and had access to non-public information before it announced failed tests of a new pharmaceutical.
The Person who is masquerading as the President of the United States has been named as an un-indicted co-conspirator in United States District Court.
The occupant of the United States Presidency is now facing criminal charges in United Stats District Court (Federal Court.)
To summarize, there is now significant evidence that Donald J. Trump would not have won the election but for his conspiracy to engage in criminal activities to influence that election, in violation of numerous United States criminal codes.
Trump only won the Electoral College because of criminal conspiracies, and proven Russian influence in four states - Pennsylvania, Ohio, Michigan and Wisconsin.
Despite Clinton winning the popular vote by over three million votes, Trump took the Electoral College by only 70,000 votes due to Russian and other criminal influences, which is unanimously cited by the entire U.S. Intelligence apparatus.
We are now learning that there was indeed “collusion” with Russia, The Trump Organization, The Trump Family, one other corporation named in District Court information, and Donald J. Trump personally to criminally change the results of the 2016 election.
The whole new narrative that “collusion” is not a crime is disingenuous. Any thesaurus shows that collusion is just a synonym for “conspiracy,” which clearly is a crime. Collusion is therefore a crime.
Where is the “collusion?” It is hitting us all in the head like a four-by-four.
Wake up America!
