    Much discussion on MSNBC programs with various expert guests. And now Buzzfeed is revealing that as a part of the Trump Tower in Moscow, Putin was going to be gifted a %50 million penthouse.

    The Trump Organization Planned To Give Vladimir Putin The $50 Million Penthouse In Trump Tower Moscow

    "President Donald Trump’s company planned to give a $50 million penthouse at Trump Tower Moscow to Russian President Vladimir Putin as the company negotiated the luxury real estate development during the 2016 campaign, according to four people, one of them the originator of the plan."

    You can read more at the link. Trump is being squeezed.

    My guess is that may be Trump himself wanted that penthouse to be close to his buddy and Moscow hookers. Wink

    Michael Cohen has been sentenced to three years in federal prison plus a $50,000 fine. Does that fit? Too harsh or not harsh enough?

    "It was my blind loyalty to this man [Trump] that led me to take a path of darkness instead of light," Cohen said. "I felt it was my duty to cover up his dirty deeds."

    It makes me sick. He should have received a 5 to 10 year sentence alone for lying to congress, perjury is a serious offense. If he would have taken the 5th., maybe he wouldn't have received any time or fine at all.

    en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fifth_Amendment_t...

    But the law is what it is, if sentencing guidelines were stiffer, people wouldn't be lying, IMO.

    As I understand it from the TV discussions, he would have gotten five years, but the judge did give consideration for his help to the Mueller investigation...hence three years instead of five.

    I suppose in due course we will find out how valuable the aid was to Mueller that warranted the reduction in sentence. If it's enough to put Trump away for money laundering with the Russians then that would be okay for me.
