  1. Not at all unexpected. Drumpf is using his position to make money. Why can’t everyone? You can place the blame on lame wingnuts who should have pulled the impeachment trigger 6 months ago before Drumpf broke every rule we knew he was going to break. Gawd I hate wingnuts!

  2. Did you actually read the article? A private sleazeball attorney tried to intimidate (and bribe with cash) a rape victim by telling her that this was going to happen if she didn’t take the bribe and disappear. He made the statements during the commission of a serious crime. He also said that the victim and her husband should kick his client’s ass. I don’t see what this has to do with Trump other than this DB is invoking his name to scare the witness.

    1. Anonymous,
      I did read it and attribute the actions of the attorney with his client. If the attorney did this without approval of the client, he could be sued by the client. Given Trump’s proclivity to sue peopleyou can bet the attorney did this at the direction of his client.
