I specifically remember telling the President: “with Jews, you lose.”
I think he now understands what I meant.
Michael D. Cohen, President Trump’s former fixer, agreed on Tuesday to plead guilty to campaign finance charges, making the extraordinary admission that he paid a pornographic film actress to secure her silence about an affair she said she had with Mr. Trump.
Mr. Cohen is also expected to plead guilty to multiple counts of bank and tax fraud. For months, prosecutors in New York have been investigating him in connection with those crimes and focusing on his role in helping to arrange financial deals with women connected to Mr. Trump.
Mr. Cohen surrendered to the F.B.I. at the bureau’s Lower Manhattan offices at about 2 p.m. on Tuesday. He was expected to appear in United States District Court in Manhattan before Judge William H. Pauley III later in the afternoon.
His lawyers did not immediately respond to requests for comment.
The plea agreement does not call for Mr. Cohen to cooperate with federal prosecutors in Manhattan, but it does not preclude him from providing information to the special counsel, Robert S. Mueller III, who is examining the Trump campaign’s possible involvement in Russia’s interference in the 2016 campaign.
If Mr. Cohen were to substantially assist the special counsel’s investigation, Mr. Mueller could recommend a reduction in his sentence.
The guilty plea could represent a pivotal moment in the investigation into the president: a once-loyal aide acknowledging that he made payments to at least one woman who said she had an affair with Mr. Trump, in violation of federal campaign finance law.
He’s just entered court as I write this.

Okay, so let me tell you why this doesn’t matter.
The raid on Cohen’s office was in April. Then Trump bombed Syria and I was like “oh here we go, they got the goods.”
But then… Trump went Super Saiyan.
And he has been on a nonstop blitz since.
Literally, since April, every single headline involving Trump has been something good.
There is no way he would be doing scorched earth if there was something in the Cohen files, and there is nothing that Cohen can say that is not in his files. He could I guess just make something up, but that doesn’t mean anything.
He is going to testify against Trump about the porn star payments.
This is their Hail Mary play: that the porno payment violated campaign finance law. And if that is true somehow, it doesn’t really mean anything at all. It’s just more drama.
Cohen is obviously copping a plea deal to give some information on Trump, because otherwise he would just fight these charges. All it is is some basic kike shit that kikes do all the time and get away with. It is much less than the Manafort tax scheming.
There will probably be “oh there was this one meeting though with this guy and this other guy from Russia, and maybe they talked about some issue.”
But it is mostly going to be the porno stuff.
It is just an excuse to further draw out this hoax, to try and have it affect the midterms. They know they’ve lost, but they are sucking this for all it’s worth.
There is a high level battle going on behind the scenes here.
These people are freaking the hell out.
They are trying to do anything they can to prevent this whole thing from blowing up in their faces. But it’s too late.
This is the very last play.
The game is shortly coming to and end.
And there shall be a victor.
