'The president’s background in NYC real estate taught mob values that still persist.Working with unsavory types was second nature to Trump who concluded that the way to insulate himself from the betrayals & backstabbing of the business world was to place a premium on loyalty — to construct his organization as a tight family circle, assisted only by a handful of long-standing, totally committed outsiders. That structure allowed the organization to survive bankruptcies, business failures, oceans of bad publicity, and legions of angry competitors, contractors and former employees. Cohn is the most important of lawyer-fixers he would employ. Cohn’s client list included alleged crime bosses, Cohn, with a reputation for unbridled aggression in defense, is the most important in a long series of lawyer-fixersTrump employed. Cohn’s , and his reputation for unbridled aggression.' Read more...

Mueller has revealed the future of mendacity that surrounds Trump.

Nothing he or his minions say can be counted on. This is not way to run the government. The world once respected us. We WERE a great power. Now they laugh... because anyone who listens to this gnagster knows he is incompetent and a genuine ignoramous about everything... and senile to boot.

And before the trolls & trumpets offer their endless 'whaddablouts' pointing to the lies perpetrated by other Presidents, not the lest which the BIG one about WMDs in Iraq, let's be clear --- this is different... here is man and his 'people' who are real criminals, for whom lying is second nature.

But it is this idea that they can lie their way out of any ACCOUNTABILITY which empowers them.

Just look at this: Mr. Corsi said he had helped Mr. Stone concoct a "cover story" for the message so that it would not appear Mr. Stone had advance knowledge that WikiLeaks planned to undermine Hillary Clinton's campaign by releasing emails stolen from the computer of her campaign chairman, John D. Podesta. He said Mr. Stone then incorporated those falsehoods into his congressional testimony -- an allegation that Mr. Stone vehemently denies.'
