We will be getting these stories for 3 more years. I wonder if Melania is still pleased with the transaction..er...marriage.

The point of the New Yorker article is to examine the methods undertaken to conceal Trump's infidelities. The sewer rat-in-chief had a system. Republicans claimed that such cover ups involving money were campaign finance crimes when committed by John Edwards back in 2008. Now the shoe is on the other foot...if you catch my drift. LOL

Mueller...Mueller...anybody?

In June, 2006, Donald Trump taped an episode of his reality-television show, “The Apprentice,” at the Playboy Mansion, in Los Angeles. Hugh Hefner, Playboy’s publisher, threw a pool party for the show’s contestants with dozens of current and former Playmates, including Karen McDougal, a slim brunette who had been named Playmate of the Year, eight years earlier. In 2001, the magazine’s readers voted her runner-up for “Playmate of the ’90s,” behind Pamela Anderson. At the time of the party, Trump had been married to the Slovenian model Melania Knauss for less than two years; their son, Barron, was a few months old. Trump seemed uninhibited by his new family obligations. McDougal later wrote that Trump “immediately took a liking to me, kept talking to me - telling me how beautiful I was, etc. It was so obvious that a Playmate Promotions exec said, ‘Wow, he was all over you - I think you could be his next wife.’ ”

Trump and McDougal began an affair, which McDougal later memorialized in an eight-page, handwritten document provided to The New Yorker by John Crawford, a friend of McDougal’s. When I showed McDougal the document, she expressed surprise that I had obtained it but confirmed that the handwriting was her own.


Donald Trump, a Playboy Model, and a System for Concealing Infidelity

Quote
...The Wall Street Journal reported shortly before the 2016 election that the publisher of the National Enquirer, American Media, had paid $150,000 for McDougal's story but never ran it. This has led to allegations that it deliberately bought the story and killed it to protect Trump, who is personal friends with AMI chief executive David Pecker.

...the biggest commonality between the McDougal and Daniels accounts is the alleged coverup. In the case of Daniels, Trump's longtime personal lawyer Michael Cohen this week confirmed he had “facilitated” a $130,000 payment to Daniels using his personal money. He conspicuously did not deny, however, that Trump was personally party to the transaction.

In the case of McDougal, the alleged payoff is more indirect but also involves a third party tied to Trump. This isn't the first time it has been suggested that Pecker deliberately paid McDougal to keep quiet, but Farrow has emails describing the transaction. He also has on-the-record quotes from former AMI employees talking about how the company would purchase stories in order to kill them and buy the silence of the person behind them — a practice known as “catch and kill” — or to use as leverage against celebrities.

The latest alleged Trump affair coverup is a damningly familiar tale

After less than 13 months, more than 40 percent of the people Trump originally picked for Cabinet-level jobs have faced ethical questions for lying, misuse of tax payer funds, spousal abuse, financial conflicts of interest and more. Drain the swamp? LOL! No, you suckers, he is FLOODING THE SEWERS!

It's the most corrupt administration since Reconstruction.

Politics / Trump made 2,140 false or misleading claims in his first year

Trump, the fattest sewer rat, is also the biggest liar to occupy the White House in the grand sweep of US history. Congratulations fellow Americans, every time he lies, we set a new record for stupidity by electing him. The Chinese and the Russians are loving it.

One year after taking the oath of office, President Trump has made 2,140 false or misleading claims, according to The Fact Checker’s database that analyzes, categorizes and tracks every suspect statement uttered by the president. That’s an average of nearly 5.9 claims a day.

We started this project as part of our coverage of the president’s first 100 days, largely because we could not possibly keep up with the pace and volume of the president’s misstatements. Readers demanded we keep it going for another year. The database has proved so useful — and even sparked the interest of academicians — that we now plan to keep it going for the rest of Trump’s presidency.

Our interactive graphic, created with the help of Leslie Shapiro and Kaeti Hinck of The Post graphics department, displays a running list of every false or misleading statement made by Trump. We also catalogued the president’s many flip-flops, since those earn Upside-Down Pinocchios if a politician shifts position on an issue without acknowledging he or she did so.

Just a reminder from the WaPo factchecker:

@GlennKesslerWP
In his first year as president, President Trump said 44 times that the Russia probe was a hoax perpetuated by Democrats  http://wapo.st/2DpGnhv?tid=ss_tw&utm_term=.8c05becb7611

Today Trump admitted there was Russian interference in the election. Will he now take steps to prevent it in the next election?

@realDonaldTrump
Russia started their anti-US campaign in 2014, long before I announced that I would run for President. The results of the election were not impacted...

Who is the "unidentified American" who worked with the conspirators?

The 37 page indictment.

Quote

The special counsel investigating Russia’s interference in the 2016 presidential election charged 13 Russian nationals and three Russian organizations on Friday with illegally using social media platforms to sow political discord, including actions that supported the presidential candidacy of Donald Trump and disparaged his opponent, Hillary Clinton.

In a 37-page indictment filed in United States District Court, Mr. Mueller said that the 13 individuals have conspired since 2014 to violate laws that prohibit foreigners from spending money to influence federal elections in the United States.

The indictment charges that the foreigners falsely posed as American citizens, stole identities and otherwise engaged in fraud and deceit in an effort to influence the U.S. political process, including the 2016 presidential race.

...Though the Russians are unlikely to be immediately arrested, they are now wanted by the United States government, which will make it hard for them to travel or do business internationally.

All were charged with conspiracy to defraud the United States. Three defendants were also charged with conspiracy to commit wire fraud and bank fraud, and five defendants with aggravated identity theft.

...Some of the Russians, posing as Americans and seeking a coordinated effort, “communicated with unwitting individuals associated with the Trump campaign and other political activists.” They communicated with members of the campaign, volunteers, supporters and grass-roots workers, court papers show.

... In the run-up to the US presidential election "Project Lakhta", as it was called, had an operating budget of more than $1m a month.

...Individuals involved in the conspiracy traveled to and around the United States, visiting at least eight states, court papers show, and worked with an unidentified American. That person advised them to focus their efforts on what they viewed as “purple” election battleground states, including Colorado, Virginia and Florida, the indictment said.

Thirteen Russians criminally charged with interfering in US election, Mueller announces
DoJ indictment alleges Russian operatives ‘communicated with unwitting individuals associated with the Trump campaign’

https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2018/feb/16/robert-mueller-russians-charged-election

Muellers first indictments into election interference goes to Russians- an oligarch and his trollfarm.  Honestly, if you can't spot a troll on social media, you need to quit. 

Sitting on pins and needs to see what is next!  This is what we have been waiting for!!
