Donald Trump’s Presidency In Peril as Key Aide Gets Immunity, Follows Other Loyalists Out the Door


The party is over. Or should we say the wake.

Donald Trump’s illegitimate presidency, that has caused immeasurable harm to the world, is now finally in peril.

The Wall Street Journal— a conservative newspaper, by the way– reports that key Trump aide Alan Weisselberg has made an immunity deal with federal prosecutors. Weisselberg joins Michael Cohen and National Enquirer publisher David Pecker in flipping on Trump. These men don’t want to go to jail so they’ve wisely decided to cooperate and reveal what they know of Trump’s criminal enterprises.

There’s also former campaign manager Paul Manafort, found guilty this week on 8 of 18 felony charges including five counts of tax fraud, one count of failure to file a report of foreign bank and financial accounts and two counts of bank fraud. He would have been convicted of 10 more charges except for one very stupid female juror, according to reports.

Trump is done. Even his most ardent supporters can’t defend what’s happened. But most intelligent people won’t be happy until they see Kellyanne Conway and her group of lunatics including Sarah Huckabee Sanders, in shackles. I can’t wait to hear the explanations for Weisselberg at a press conference.

We in New York told you outside of it that Trump was a lowlife lying scuzzball. No one wanted to believe it. Here you are. Even if you’re in a rural state and you believe coal is coming back, and America will somehow be like “Ozzie and Harriet” you must understand what’s going on now. If not get your kid to explain it to you.
