You are reading page 391 of The President Donald Trump Thread. If you want to start from the beginning Go to First Page.

That is an opinion, not an established fact. Many disagree.

I'm only posting a small bit of the article. There are quotes from a book that include lots more information.

... In reality, there was no ambush. Flynn knew the FBI was investigating his secret conversations with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak in the final days of 2016.

And his deceit was more extensive than an isolated "error in judgment."

He had delivered a message to Moscow that arguably undermined his own government, then provided false accounts about that conversation not only to the FBI but to Vice President Pence, Trump transition spokesman Sean Spicer and a reporter for The Washington Post....

Mr. Flynn is a retired lieutenant general, was a previous director of the Defense Intelligence Agency, and was Mr. Trump's national security advisor. And he let two FBI agents "set him up?" Sorry, while that might make a good headline, I find that it hard to believe.

I think most people would know to tell the truth to FBI agents.

Flynn was willing to meet with them alone.

With or without an attorney what do you think he should have answered regarding his conversations with Putin and the Russian Ambassador?

The author writes opinions regarding controversial topics.

Attorney Cohen's arrest and guilty plea seem to show his broke the law.

Unless there can and will be an appeal in the future.

He didn't say Cohen didn't break the law. He said there were not any campaign finance laws broken. He was also charged with tax evasion and a few other things that have zero to do with Trump.

Whether he knew or not isn't the point. Neither is his background or experience that Chare mentioned.

Shouldn't everyone be subject to the same process of justice?

I like to compare polls agsinst itself. In both the poll you linked to and the one I linked to, his approval rating is above the average for his term, and well above his lows.

Quite remarkable if you consider the continuous campaign by Democrats and media activists to de-legitimize his presidency that started the day after the election.

His term average is 39% and that's above average? I'm not seeing that. What I'm seeing is that at 40% he's below nine previous Presidents for this time of year.

Media and the opposite party attack newly elected Presidents from Day #1. Fox News and the Republicans did it to Obama. in fact Fox News is in my opinion responsible for the rise of the Tea Party. George W. Bush was immediately attacked and criticized from Day one with massive protests. It's tough when it's someone you voted for, but really that's just how life works.

Nope, not going to buy your "Trump is a Victim" stance whatsoever for one second. But you're entitled to see it that way.

I will give you this: 40% approval rating for this man surely is incredible.

His current approval ratings in each poll are currently above his average in each of the polls.

Of course each President has had their opposition. With Trump, it started with some trying to figure out how to manipulate the Electoral College votes. And it went on from there. No other President has had most of the media actively trying to take him down.

Is the paper wrong?

Or did he plead guilty of a crime he didn't commit?

Or am I confused? I thought I remembered this correctly.

The Washington Times - Tuesday, August 21, 2018

... Michael Cohen, President Trump's former personal attorney and fixer, pleaded guilty in federal court Tuesday to felony campaign finance violations, bank fraud and tax evasion in connection with hush payments to two women on behalf of Mr. Trump, an admission that implicated the president...

Pecker's company said that members of the Trump campaign coordinated the tabloid's actions and purchase of the McDougal story. I wonder who?
