    They are ALWAYS guilty of what they are accusing others of doing.
  • HomieDClown
    The definition of insanity is saying “Trump is going to jail this time” over and over and expecting different results
  • Molly
    Lmao with everything happening in the world right now this is the story they want us to be focused on. I’m good!
  • Aborted Democrat
    Hilarious that Trump tricked the media into confession of there being no chance Trump will go to jail after they said he would for years 🤣🤣🤣 10th dimensional chess master
  • R Lin
    Next, do the one about the "big guy" and his 10% of dirty money. 💰 💰

    Did the DAs office offer Cohen a reduced sentence in his case to indict Trump?
  • Davon Lloyd
    Why are they STILL “weighing” charges a regular person would’ve already been put in prison for. I thought “no one was above the law!”🙄
  • Nyx Culp
    So they didn't get him yesterday? They said it was probably more than likely that they will possibly get him yesterday.

    I’m pretty tired of you guys miss representing what this payment was. A non-disclosure agreement with a agreed-upon price is completely legal and happens in business all of the time. Would you want your children to know that you had an affair with a beautiful woman that was not your wife? Come on man there’s real crimes out there happening.

    Here we go again with the 'might-be, maybe, possibly, more-than-likely" again! They open the door - only partially, then they stall in 2nd gear -

    I have a Question. What crime is being allegedly committed? What are the alleged charges that are being pursued?
  • Marjorie Myers
    So now why is Costello telling Bragg about this now. You would think he would've came forward alot earlier than 2 years after this all started.
  • DC Monster
    I feel like Castello is lying. Something is always to be gained. Be skeptical if someone says they have nothing to gain.

    This is what you do when you can't legitimately win an election.

    Sure would be nice if everyone who pays hush money is treated this way. Heck Congress has a taxpayer funded slush fund just for paying hush money.
  • Jake Razmataz
    The statute of limitations has run out, they will be very lucky to get to trial. And even then, at most, it's a fine. And more people will see how the dems. work.

    They never tried to disparage micheal before the last minute? Doesn’t really make sense.
  • Mark B
    Oh word, so when were y’all gonna dig through Hunter’s hard-drive?
