    This might get interesting: F.B.I. Raids Office of Trump’s Longtime Lawyer Michael Cohen - The New York Times If this leads to state-level charges and convictions, those can't be pardoned by any President.

    That would be great, but right now it looks like this all pertains to the federal level. The U.S. Attorney's office that executed the search was Preet Bharara's old post. The interim U.S. attorney in that office is Geoffrey Berman who was appointed by Trump. From NBC:

    Despite Berman being a Trump appointee, the President said the investigation is a "witch hunt."

    "I have this witch hunt constantly going on, it is a real disgrace," Trump said. "It is an attack on what we all stand for. It is at an all new level of unfairness."

    Now that news reports are out, it seems that Cohen is pretty shady, I bet they can come up with some state charges pretty easily if they find evidence of federal crimes. The part I'm unclear about though is if evidence of state crimes is admissible if it is gathered with a warrant issued to find evidence of federal crimes. I cannot imagine why it would not be, but our legal system tends to favor the accused when it comes to how evidence was gathered. Regardless, the Trump Presidency is turning out to be fantastic, though probably not for the reasons Trump supporters were hoping for... We are living though a time period that will be discussed forever.

    The law changes a lot in New York, and they would have their own suppression hearings and the like based on state laws and court decisions, but barring differences in state and federal law the evidence should be usable on the state level.

    Interestingly, it has since come out that Berman had recused himself from the investigation. He could have acted as a road block, but in light of what must have been a ton of probable cause, stepped right out of the way.

    Re: Trump

    June, 2016, Trump said this of the Trans-Pacific Partnership:

    “The Trans-Pacific Partnership is another disaster done and pushed by special interests who want to rape our country, just a continuing rape of our country,” Trump said. “That’s what it is, too. It’s a harsh word: It’s a rape of our country. This is done by wealthy people that want to take advantage of us and that want to assign another partnership."

    This just in: Thanks to Trump's insistence on a trade war with China that pretty much everyone has advised we stay out of, American farmers are (predictably) looking at a serious hit.

    Trump's response? "Let's look at getting back into the TPP."

    You can't make this stuff up.

    Due to the super-long Winter, I have been binge watching "The Office". It has recently dawned on me that the White House is probably exactly like that show, with Trump being the Michael Scott character minus the decency.

    No Trump in this post, but a RIP to First Lady Bush. Amazing to read some of the hateful shit some people are saying about her. Divided times we live in for sure.

    There's always one, Drumps good buddy Roger Stone:

    RogerStoneBush.png

    Trump political consigliere Roger Stone unloaded on Barbara Bush in an Instagram post on Tuesday evening just hours after her death. There, Stone wrote that the former first lady was a “nasty drunk” and posted a quote from him suggesting that if you lit her body on fire it would “burn for three days.”

    “Barbara Bush was a nasty drunk. When it came to drinking she made Betty Ford look like Carrie Nation #blottoBabs,” said Stone. “Barbara Bush drank so much booze, if they cremated her … her body would burn for three days.”

    Most of what I’ve seen is comments on articles, and a nobody professor from CA. Bush’s summer in Maine, some amazing comments from the ‘tolerant’ folk up here. Oh well, she did a lot for Children’s health and literacy. Decent in my book.
