    Its about to be released. The book has been given to a few high profile reporters that are now summerizing the book.

    • According to WP, Comey specifically calls trump a pathological liar from a legal perspective.
    • trump methods\tactics are very simular to Comey's experiences with organized crime.
    • Also, Comey claims that John Kelly discussed resigning from Homeland Security because Kelly did not want want to work for a president that lies so easily and frequently.

    Organized crime. Sounds like Trump is portrayed as a mob figure, or some sort of mafia boss. If that's the case, if true, most mob bosses have goons to do their bodywork for them, the arm twisting leg breakers, cement shoe installers, etc.. I wonder if Trump's goons are the attorneys he hires or has hired in the past (Cohen) who insulate Trump Org. from porn stars via payoffs to keep their mouths shut and an enforcer to tell the party (or else) as described as male figure in a Stormy Daniels statement.

    “I was in a parking lot, going to a fitness class with my infant daughter. … And a guy walked up to me and said, ‘Leave Trump alone. Forget the story.’ And then he leaned around and looked at my daughter and said, ‘That’s a beautiful little girl. It’d be a shame if something happened to her mom.’ And then he was gone,” she recalled to Cooper.

    Wondering who these people are that Trump has lurking around corners or hiding in the shadows to do his dirty work, those people could also face an indictment too. That is, if all of this is true, right now, most of this whole thing is "alleged".

    So, if Stormy was paid $130,000, how was this kind of a payoff initiated? Did Stormy tell Trump if he didn't want to give her some money, she would blab her story to anyone who would listen? If she demanded money, isn't that extortion on her part. Or, did Trump just come out and offer her that amount as long as she kept quiet? And, Trump's lawyer drew up an agreement.

    I don't know if I've ever heard of a mobster offering a payoff for someone to stay quiet. Usually a mob figure will exert physical force to make a person keep quiet, in this case, it's looking like both tactics were used.

    trump is not a crime boss, more like second rate conman that is a wannabe crime boss. Putin is a crime boss at an international level, and we know that trump has a huge crush on Putin. Trump wants to be like Putin, but trump's territory would the US.

    The Comey book says it very clear, what Trump is all about. The worst part is on The how Fox, Sinclair, the National Inquirer will react. Trump "tweeted" already about it this morning and wants Comey to be prosecuted and calling him all kind of names etc. Yes the "swamp" has reached a new depth; his eyeballs are already covered in swamp shit.

    Let the fun begin; the end is near. The "rats" will run like hell to leave the sinking Titanic; at least Ryan is the first "rat"

    I think the worst part of this situation is the timing of the book's release. It will surely damage an already damaged image of Trump, plus it will make the GOP look like a bunch of blundering idiots. Not to mention, Comey should have body guards or security around him 24/7 now because those Trump supporters like the white nationalists might be looking to hurt him. We never know either if Trump has ties to underworld hitmen too. Since Trump is viewed as a mob figure.

    Little doubt he and other key witnesses (and families) are at high risk of being harmed; in Trump World harming\threatening political targets is 100% OK. trump is already stepping over the boundaries of using presidential powers to intimidate people, and nobody would be surprise if trump tweeted:

    "Somebody please put a bullet into their heads"

    If he did tweet that, so what, other than impeaching him, there is nothing anybody can do. My perspective is he knows this is headed to an impeachment showdown, so why not threaten people and their families. And if some wacko does harm one of key witnesses, it would be high bar to prove trump made it happen.

    No matter how bad things get for the country, and how many lives trump destroys before leaving office, he will never be forced give up anything that he values. Whenever, and however, he leave office, trump simply goes back to playing golf, making sleazy deals with the Russians, and become even richer. There is no down side for him, so why no threaten people directly; trump knows he is untouchable, so why not fuck over people that he does not like.
