No Excuses

The Michael Cohen/Trump SDNY Investigation Thread

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

The Ronan Farrow/NYer scoop is utterly fascinating. Only two conclusions:

 

1. The two missing SAR's are so explosive in their nature, that FINCEN went through an unprecedented process of taking them out of the searchable database.

 

2. Someone tampered with evidence in a high profile investigation into the President's personal attorney.

 

#1 is the likely choice since FINCEN and law enforcement could always request the SAR from the bank again.

 

I swear to god, if the parties were reversed, the right wing news circuit would be in a perpetual state of orgasming.

Could someone get me up to speed on why a whistleblower would leak them to Stormy's attorney rather than Mueller ect?

TWA...since the Stormy investigation is a state investigation, I'm assuming since persons can't be pardoned. If they go to Mueller, Trump may pardon. Just thinking off the top of my head.

I thought the main Stormy issue centered on federal campaign finance matters?

(aside from the non-disclosure issue)

It is, but it's being filed in the Southern District of New York.

Nah, SDNY is a federal jurisdiction. So far nothing from the state of New York.

If he goes to Mueller it stays secret. He wanted the public to know.

Suspect y'all are falling down a classic twa rabbit hole. 

 

"Could you explain to me why this untrue, suspicious-sounding meme that the 

right wing media wants to pretend is true, is true?"  

 

To start with, we have no idea if Mueller had this information, or how either investigation got it. No "whistleblower" is needed or implied, about either team getting it. 

 

The information was leaked, not to "Stormy Daniels lawyer", but to multiple media outlets, by someone identified only as "a law enforcement source", supposedly because it appeared that the information was being censored from the public.

Stormy's lawyer got bank records from the media?

This article and the New Yorker one seem to be vague about that, perhaps the source leaked to both Avenatti and the media, perhaps a media source passed it on to him. Once the media had it it was going public regardless. The Vox article alludes to inquiries by Mueller that suggest he was onto Cohen's shady dealing quite a while ago. Mueller doesn't leak, unlike the WH, but his employees probably respect him.

Mueller already has them most likely. He’s been looking into Cohen since last year reportedly. 

 

I think the fact that the two more detailed ones aren’t in a searchable database is pretty clear indiciatiom that they are being used in a highly classified criminal investigation.

So the whistleblower wasn't satisfied with just Mueller having them?

Probably. He wouldn't be the first person to leak something like this.

So your first attempt to divert the conversation from the bribes to the person who revealed them didn’t work, and you’re trying a different one?

If you got more on bribes I'd like to see it.

Surely we are capable of discussing more than one aspect at a time.

For once, I didn't feed it...but you did. 

I know, it's an endless trap.....😭
