On Monday, the FBI raided the home, office and hotel room of Trump’s personal attorney, Michael Cohen, who’s now being investigated for “possible bank fraud, wire fraud, and campaign finance violations,” according to The Washington Post.
This is all in relation with the Stormy Daniels “scandal” and is nothing more than justice being held hostage by Leftists who got ticked off that their favorite candidate didn’t win. I say this because it’s true and because those possible charges are really reaching for lawlessness.
What do I mean? Well, with the bank and wire fraud, that rests solely on Cohen. Supposedly, he had taken a loan of $130,000 to pay Stormy Daniels to make sure she remained quiet about her supposed affair with Trump.
Now, I don’t have all the information with me, but I really don’t see any way how Cohen committed fraud against a bank by using the loan to pay someone off. In general, it’s a bad idea to take out a bank loan to pay off, say, a debt, but I never knew it to be illegal (it’s not. Generally speaking, unless the loan agreement specifies otherwise, you can do whatever you want with a bank loan, even investing the money).
Again, I don’t have every important bit of information in front of me, but I doubt Cohen committed fraud here, not to mention that Cohen said he paid Daniels with his own money. Even if what he said is untrue, claiming it’s your money doesn’t constitute a bank fraud.
The last part, the “campaign finance violations” is also a bit of a reach. Cohen paid Daniels (either with a loan or his own money) “in a private transaction in 2016,” according to Cohen. This could be considered a violation of campaign finance laws, but you also have to ask this: "what about the money Congressmen set aside to pay off women?" If the issue here is that Cohen had to disclose that amount and didn't, why don't horny Congressmen have to do the same?
Why is this a bigger deal for Trump than it would be for, say, Al Franken?
Once again, I will admit I don’t have all the information in front of me. I could be completely wrong about this, but generally and logically speaking, with the information I do have, this should be a nothing-burger. This is something that shouldn’t land Cohen in prison or remotely threaten Trump’s presidency.
Now, that being said, I don’t doubt the Left will further destroy justice and take into their own hands to destroy Trump. Supposedly, the kind of warrant used to raid Cohen’s home and office is very difficult to get and not used for anything other than something major. Then again, the same could be said for FISA warrants, and you know full well how easy it is for the Left to get those.
These warrants aren’t being used to investigate a crime. Mueller was never given a crime to pursue in his investigation and the only reason Cohen is being investigated is because of his ties with Trump. The only reason we’re even hearing about these things is because the Left is full of children who are still throwing tantrums that they lost a Presidential election, particularly against someone they deem a massive buffoon at best.
Had Trump lost, there wouldn’t have been a Russia investigation despite the fact that Hillary very clearly and evidentially colluded with Russia in the elections. Had Trump lost, this whole Stormy Daniels eye-roller of a “scandal” would never have even come up. The only reason they are brought up is because he beat the Left, which in their eyes is a crime almost punishable by death (or actually punishable by death if they feel they need to go that far).
For as bad as the Left wants to make this appear to be, it’s their own people that do much of the same and even worse. Let’s not forget former Democratic presidential candidate and senator, John Edwards, was tried on those exact charges before eventually being acquitted and the Obama DOJ dropped the charges (because of course they did). It wasn’t a big deal when he did the things they claim Cohen, and by extension, Trump, did so why is it a big deal now? The same could be said about the “Cambridge Analytica scandal”. Obama did the exact same thing, using Facebook’s data to determine voting patterns and likely voters among other things, during the 2012 election in order to influence people into voting for him.
It’s entirely likely that Hillary did (or at least tried to do) the same thing in 2016.
The reason it’s as big a deal as they make it out to be is because it involves Trump and gives them some hope that they’ll be able to impeach him come next year.
Now, let’s address the title of this article. What does this mean moving forward? It means that I’ll be even more fired up to defeat the Left come November. It means that justice is being held hostage by a bunch of angry children in places of relative power. There was no need to raid Cohen’s home and office. Cohen has been cooperative about everything. The only reason a raid was conducted was purely for political reasons. They want to make you, a Trump supporter, angry and afraid that it will all be over soon. And they want to give their base a false sense of hope that Trump’s administration is on the verge of destruction.
Legally, much of the same things will happen moving forward as they would have without a raid. Make no mistake, this raid was nothing more than an exhibition of force in order to intimidate you and anyone who supports Trump. It’s nothing but terrorism tactics in its most literal sense.
This, on its own, likely won’t lead to Trump’s impeachment, much less his prosecution. Trump was hardly involved in this and has even claimed that he had no knowledge of the payment. Even if he’s lying and he did know about the payment, the Daily Wire tells us: “if Trump knew about it, that could constitute criminal conspiracy to violate campaign finance law”. Not if it really wasn’t a violation of campaign finance law (and there's a chance it won't be seen as one).
So there’s a lot of “ifs” in this scenario. If Trump really didn’t know about the payments, that’s the end of this particular criminal charge the Left would want to put on him. But even if he did know about it, they would have to prove that it really was a violation of campaign finance law (which, in all fairness, could be the case).
All this really will do is fire up Trump supporters to go out and vote and make sure that Democrats don’t take back either the House of Representatives or the Senate. We’ll take useless Republicans who likely won’t impeach the President based on nothing over blood-thirsty Democrats who will impeach Trump based on the grounds that he simply defeated Hillary and that’s good enough to impeach him.
Even then, Democrats would still need a super-majority to supersede the certain veto Mike Pence would issue regarding the impeachment of Trump. And with their agenda of repealing the tax cuts that have helped most of America, taking away people’s guns, and giving amnesty to criminal aliens, prioritizing them over the American people, I don’t see them coming close to a super-majority. If Republicans really wanted to, they could have a super-majority of their own and be in power for decades.
The unlikelihood of Democrats winning a super-majority combined with the multiple variables and questions in the Stormy Daniels “scandal” indicates the likelihood of Trump being impeached is not very high.
Now, what could this mean for the Left? I don’t know what Trump is thinking, but I don’t think he’ll fire Robert Mueller over this. Mueller doesn’t really have much of a hand in this because his only tie to it is that he gave a referral to the Southern District of New York about this. It was the SDNY and the Department of Justice that had a bigger hand in this ordeal.
Does this mean Trump will fire Sessions or Rosenstein? Again, I don’t know what Trump is thinking here. I can’t say with certainty whether he will or not. We'll just have to wait and see. He certainly has the authority to do so and will not be actually charged of "obstruction of justice". Accused? Likely. But not charged.
Yes, he could fight it and yes, it could also fire up Trump’s supporters, but it could also fire up Democrat voters as well, smelling likely victory over the horizon. If Democrat voters think they’re very close to actually impeaching Trump and for a seemingly legitimate (it wouldn’t be) reason, they will be fired up to vote.
Granted, that could be the general case regardless of what happens, but this alone should fire up Trump supporters even more. At this point, it’s about ensuring the survival of this administration.
