    "And, if Russian influence on presidential candidates is a bigger concern than President Obama thought, it would be proper to be even more leery of the Clintons given their connections to the Russian political world that Trump largely did not have prior to 2016."

    Why is it when there is an question about Donald Trump's activities, it always gets turned into a "What about Bill and Hillary?" You might as well ask "What about Lyndon Johnson?" although we are not talking about then. We're talking about now.

    Fortunately we have the Mueller investigation team looking into Trump's connections with Russia going back over 30 years. Saying that Trump had no relationship before 2016 is to deny history. To say that the Clinton's had a history, however undefined, does not address the issues we are confronted with today.

    Bill Clinton did not have demagogic inclinations with a strong authoritarian manner who respected and honored despots and strongmen. Also, Bill Clinton was not playing footsie with the Russians and other dictators during his term as president. The Russians didn't help Bill Clinton win his elections like they did Trump.

    "Interesting story line. Cohen claims Trump asked him to lie to congress. No criminal act there."

    Please look up the legal definition of "subordination of perjury". Unless you don't think lying to Congress is a crime, it could follow that asking someone to lie to Congress is not a crime either? What does it matter as long as the truth cannot be found and the guilty are excused?

    Aside from the issue of Donald Trump doing what he has been accused of doing in the BuzzFeed article, Trump's own lawyers know that he cannot be trusted to appear before and testify to the Mueller investigations because he is an incorrigible liar. He lies all the time. Recent fact checking shows that he lies several times a day, every day. He lies when he speaks. He lies when he tweets. You never know when he might be telling the truth because he lies so much.

    Michael Cohen has been convicted of lying. He lied for Donald Trump. He wanted to protect his boss and he lied. Now we have two liars, one telling us that he was told to lie and the other telling us that he didn't tell him to lie. Which is it? Who's lying? Which is the lie and which is the truth?

    "Trump allegedly was attempting to cover up politically sensitive business dealings. In other words, the underlying activity was not criminal."

    Two things you have neglected to address. If Donald Trump told a witness to lie to Congress (as is the situation in this case, even if it were an investigation into the theft of a paper clip) would than not be suborning perjury? You don't tell someone to lie even in the most innocuous matter when it involved Congress or the justice system. Lie to your neighbor. Lie to your wife. But if you tell your wife to lie to your neighbor, you are guilty.

    Second, much of these cover-up situations were designed to prevent information getting out which might derail the Trump campaign. The Stormy Daniels and Karen McDougal stories coming in after the Access Hollywood mess, including the many accusations of sexual misconduct by the women who accused Trump of sexual assault. Confirmation of business dealings with Russians after Trump denied emphatically throughout the campaign that he didn't have anything to do with the Russians. Also, the significant investment of Russian . . .

    . . . money in Trump's business and the possibility that this Russian money sustained him for the past thirty years. And then there is the origin story of Trump getting a small loan from his father which he had to pay back and he built into a "great" business. Then we learn that it was false and much of the Trump family fortune was built from tax dodges and illegal business scams.

    Trump built a brand. He had become a reality show host and worked hard to maintain his brand (while still doing questionable things and requiring non-disclosure agreements and monetary payoffs to hide his behavior) which was very important to his seeking the presidency. If any of this information had come out, would he have even have gotten past the first primary?

    And then there is the Barack Obama Birther fiasco and his assault on the Central Park Five even after they were found innocent. This was enough to turn off many people from even considering him as a viable candidate. The rest of it Trump supporters have to live with all this mishigas along with the current scandals of xenophobia and taking children from their parents, many of which still remain in U.S. custody.

    "Completely unnecessary... Mueller has told us the news story is incorrect "

    Not to start interpreting between the lines, but BuzzFeed released the Steele dossier which was immediately labeled as "incorrect" and has shown to contain much fact and nothing as yet disproved. Similarly, for the Mueller team to say the recent BuzzFeed article saying one liar told another liar to lie remains incomplete.

    Yes, Michael Cohen has been convicted of lying. But he lied on behalf of a know liar. Since Donald Trump tries very hard not to leave a paper trail for his questionable activities, we will have to see exactly where the Mueller team says this story is inaccurate. We should not put too much on this story until more comes out, but liars lie and Trump is not a good witness. If supporting evidence is not available, then we can dismiss the story as it is with every other unverified news story.

    If BuzzFeed did their due diligence, perhaps we will have better insight into this subordination of perjury accusation. Until then we wait. There is so much more out there to concern us. We will see if there is supporting documentation.

    Are you seriously comparing Clinton lying about an affair to what Trump has done?
    A burglary to steal an opponents info is a felony.

    "Clinton was covering up an affair. The public said, not good enough. "

    "Nixon was covering up a burglary of his political opposition. The public said good enough. "

    "Trump allegedly was attempting to cover up politically sensitive business dealings. In other words, the underlying activity was not criminal."

    Still chanting "No Collusion" in spite of all of Trump and his cronies being investigated, arrested and jailed?

    "Interestingly enough, Clinton’s affair with Lewinsky was actually borderline illegal. Lewinsky would have had a great case for sexual harassment if she had wanted to pursue it (especially if it happened in 2019)."

    The affair was consensual, but you know that you just had to SPECULATE in order to bring Clinton back into the picture to support your non-argument.

    "So is the alleged Trump lie more like Clinton’s lie or Nixon’s lie? "

    Trump's lies, activities and cover ups greatly exceed anything done by Nixon or Clinton.

    But you know that, you just have to defend your partisan tribal beliefs.

    @Frozen, Unreconstructed, Stephen Daedalus.

    Appreciate your comments. They are thought-provoking.

    Still, allegedly, Trump asked Cohen to lie about a business negotiations with Russians in Russia. If that is a crime, there are at least 10,000 other Americans that we need to investigate.

    But, almost all of those doing business with Russians were not running for President. At least 2 were. That would be Trump and Hillary Clinton (Bill as well).

    And, if Russian influence on presidential candidates is a bigger concern than President Obama thought, it would be proper to be even more leery of the Clintons given their connections to the Russian political world that Trump largely did not have prior to 2016.

    Anyway, this may be all moot, since Mueller’s team is now disputing the original Buzzfeed story.

    Thanks for sharing.

    "Your telling us Mueller's team leaked. Isn't that a federal crime?"

    Nope.... not even close. Prosecutors and investigators all the time release information on cases before they go to trail. Not uncommon at all. They could choose not to.... but on a daily basis in office and unofficial communications investigators will release information. For example they will say person X was seen in the area of the crime and is a person of interest. Or they will say "witnesses to the crime described the person who committed the crime as ... fill in the blank". Or "we are sourcing for john doe on suspicion of fill-in-the crime". Or "we know joe blow was seen in the vicinity of the crime as was asking for help to get away". Or "defendant 1 says defendant 2 ordered the act".

    None of it illegal.

    Not even close to being in the neighborhood of being illegal. Where did you get that from?

    Giuliani noted that Cohen had pleaded guilty to lying and quoted federal prosecutors in New York who chastised him for a "pattern of lies and dishonesty over an extended period of time." Mueller's team, however, has called him a credible witness.

    It is already fairly established, with plenty of evidence, that Trump lies...regularly. So lying, for Trump, does not give him any moral pause. There is no hesitation if a lie advances his purposes.
    Just do a simple online search of Trump lies if you have any doubt. The fact that many past presidents have lied (Obama, Clinton, Bush, etc) does not give excuse for any future president to lie.

    But what motivation would Trump have to instruct Cohen to lie?

    How about the fact that Trump wanted a Trump tower in Russia, but such an effort wouldn't look good during a campaign or immediately after...or even now.

    How about the fact that Trump wants to continue growing his wealth.

    Greed is the motivation for Trump to instruct Cohen to lie. Trump has plenty of that.

    Donald Trump's response to statements made my his ex-fixer, Michael Cohen, is predictable. One liar to another, the truth will eventually come out. Whether it is Trump or Cohen, it is imperative that this be resolved and not shoved under the carpet as Trump would like.

    I seriously wonder how many voters Trump would get today if people knew all the stuff we know about him and his relationship with the Russians today? I recognize that many stand with his because they voted for him and they don't want to face the fact that they chose the wrong Republican candidate. There's a certain level of pride at stake for the Trump voter. They know they would have much the same under any of the other candidates without the strum und drang.

    Trump opponents recognize this with the Trump supporter. On the other hand, the Trump supporter is in defensive mode and doesn't understand the position of the Trump opponent. So the partisan bickering drags on with the knowledge that however the evidence provided by the Mueller team and the SDNY investigation, Trump will maintain 25% loyalty to the end. Like he said, he could shoot someone on 5th Avenue and not lose a single supporter. How's that for you?

    JSF - it wasn't what Clinton did with Ms. Lewinski that got him impeached. That act was not illegal. It was lying about what happened that got Billy in a pot of hot water. And yes, impeachment hearings ensued.

    There isn't a lot different between these two men in this regard, except one of them can actually string thoughts together into a coherent sentence. I don't get how those who have been so critical of the Clintons can then try so hard to indemnify Mr. Trump. It makes absolutely no sense... no one can logically hate the Clintons so much, then excuse the same arguably worse behavior from Trump. Clinton Foundation - Trump Foundation. Except only one of them has been legally forced to close.

    I am not a Clinton fan or supporter. Was sick that these two were our choice last election. But the hypocrisy of Trump supporters.... Clinton bad, Trump good.... makes ya wonder

    "Interesting story line. Cohen claims Trump asked him to lie to congress. No criminal act there."

    I love your posts. Trump is just a misunderstood guy. I appreciate your efforts in reiterating that point to us. You would be a great friend to have.

    We are a nation of laws, however, and there are laws on the books. This one, for instance:

    18 U.S.C. § 1512(b):

    "Whoever knowingly uses intimidation, threatens ... or attempts to do so ... with intent to ... influence, delay, or prevent the testimony of any person ...." is guilty of a felony.

    And then there is this one:

    18 U.S.C. § 1505:

    "Whoever ... endeavors to influence, obstruct, or impede ... the due and proper exercise of the power of inquiry under which any inquiry or investigation is being had by either House" is guilty of a felony.

    Here's another law for you to contemplate:

    18 U.S.C. § 1622 "Subornation of perjury. Whoever procures another to commit any perjury is guilty of subornation of perjury, and shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than five years, or both."

    In the end, we are a nation of laws, not an amalgamation of personalities who can do whatever they wish without consequences..

    What Robert Mueller does next depends on what's been discovered, how solid the charges are, and how complete the investigation is.

    Some lines of inquiry will continue. This poses a problem for the report – How to conceal those investigations without massive redactions.

    Once the report leaves Mueller's hands, the danger of leaks of any
    redacted sections greatly increases.

    Democrats need to wait. Impeachment talk now is like jumping offsides.

    "Trump allegedly was attempting to cover up politically sensitive business dealings. In other words, the underlying activity was not criminal."

    Except that's a really poor statement of what the underlying activity is and how much it matters. The entire Trump-Russia issue revolves around answers to the questions of to what extent did Trump do business in Russia and to what extent did that leave him susceptible to Russian influence and/or willing to accept Russian assistance to win an election?

    If Trump directed Cohen to lie to Congress, the first question is why? I'm hard-pressed to think of possible answers to that question which don't put the president in serious jeopardy.

    Repeatedly for the past 2 years there has been a clear and troubling pattern of accusation of interactions with Russia by people in Trump's orbit, followed by initial denials, and then by admissions and shifting goalposts of what is or isn't guilty conduct. Why? People are being convicted of perjury for lying about this. Why are they doing that? Hard to believe it's about innocent conduct.

    No, here the underlying activity of potential suborned perjury is materially vital. It *is* the central matter.

    But barely 14 years later, the elected German parliament voted to hand over its powers to Adolph Hitler.

    Yesterday's reporting (upon which this AP article is based) describes the multiple types of collaborating evidence Mueller has in hand to support Cohen's claim that Trump directly ordered him to lie to Congress.

    As to the 'type of lie' relative to Nixon and Clinton, only the most starry-eyed Trump followers would agree with your characterization of the purpose of Cohen lie.

    This was not a lie to protect details of a deal or other trade secrets of the average gaudy Trump-branded building.

    The purpose was to obstruct or delay Congressional and DoJ inquiries related to the very subject matter being lied about.

    Further, the act of lying about something that America's geopolitical rival could refute at any time immediately compromised this administration and made it vulnerable to extortion and blackmail by Russia.

    The public will recognize nothing Clinton or Nixon did ever came close to those stakes.

    Before you go after a liar make sure your not going to need his testimony as evidence to convict some one else.

    Again we see the Anti-Trumpers deciding someone is guilty with out due process. But that has been going on since 2016. As the new Democrat candidates have said, O'Rourke says the Constitution is dead and not relevant and should be discarded, AOC has also stated as much.

    "Oh no! Buzzfeed and two un-named officials. This looks serious."

    If it were some kind of twisted joke, I doubt Trump would be trying to intimidate Michael Cohen by threatening his father-in-law. That's what he is tweeting about this morning.

    Innocent people don't do that. Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein were ridiculed a great deal when they started writing about the Watergate break-in. Today they represent the gold standard of investigative reporting.

    If you want a president who makes a mockery of legislative oversight because he has no respect for how government works, then it looks like you've found your guy.

    But the Clintons! Bill Clinton's last day in office was January 19, 2000. He was impeached by the House. You are talking about "borderline illegal" activity that took place 22 years ago in response to an article about Trump legal culpability being everything but "borderline".
