Holy Snot, I can’t keep up!

The details are starting to roll out about what is in Michael Cohen’s files and they are so over the top that there is speculation that Trump is committing as many crimes as possible so that the FBI don’t know what to charge him with first.

First up, that playmate model that the deputy chair of the Republican Finance committee allegedly knocked up? You know, the one that Eliot Broidy paid $1.6 million dollars to? According to this article in New York Magazine, that scenario doesn’t seem to fit Broidy’s MO. But it sure as heck fits Donald Trump’s:

While Broidy’s business dealings are the epitome of the sort of swampy sleaze that Trump promised to drain from federal government decision-making, his home life is by contrast extremely stable, and, to all appearances, quite conventional. Broidy is 60 years old, and has been married for over 25 years to a woman of about his own age, with whom he has had three children. His wife is an attorney who was previously a senior vice-president at 20th Century Fox (she has reportedly been involved in some of Broidy’s more questionable business dealings). While of course it’s not impossible that Broidy chose to pursue a dangerous liaison with Miss November 2010, his biography is not that of a man who has the appearance of a likely candidate to have an affair with a Playboy playmate several decades younger than himself. He is not, in other words, a thrice-married serial adulterer with an established record of sleeping with models, playmates, and porn stars.

There’s more very interesting details that lead away from Eliot Broidy and towards Donald Trump. Read the whole thing.

The second revelations is that Michael Cohen was receiving large sums of money from Russian oligarchs. I know, right? Who didn’t see that coming? But did you know who else he received checks from?

That money went to Essential Consultants, Cohen’s LLC set up to transfer funds to porn stars and playmates.

I could see it if Cohen was collecting that money as a member of the Republican finance committee, something he and Broidy have in common. So what happened to that money? What was it for?

And here’s a handy graphic of all these players and their connection to Trump:

Curiouser and curiouser.

What’s next? Rachel Maddow should stop planning her shows and just wing it from now on.

  1. If you wrap your head in aluminum foil then Trump’s insanity rays won’t work on you anymore. Apply generously. You might want to use two rolls.

    Make sure to leave holes for your eyes so you can see.

    • You’re losing your edge, Niles. It’s sad to watch. Every blog needs quality troll and you’re not meeting expectations.

  2. Anybody watching Avenatti on Lawrence? LOL,…Mueller chasing Cohen, says who? says who?
