Add one more to the many. I'll admit, I didn't think he would run out of money this quick. He must not manage his money that well.

Not yet.  If he cooperates, he won't be indicted til the end of the negotiation.  The more he spills, the less he'll be liable for.

They'll find something. Gotta justify those millions Mueller and his henchmen are raking in. Prolly another process crime, or some tax evasion scheme.

They are government employees, genius. They aren't "raking in" any "millions."

It's a matter of degree.  

And indictment isn't conviction.  Most white collar indictments don't result in jail.  Unless you're an idiot like Manafort.

He expects to be arrested any day now. The files from his office have been in the process of being cleared by a taint team so as not to violate attorney client privilege of Cohen or any other clients. 
 

President Donald Trump's long-time lawyer Michael Cohen has been telling pals he expects to be arrested soon, according to new reports Tuesday.

A Vanity Fair article also quoted an ex-White House official saying that "Trump should be super worried about Michael Cohen" deciding to cooperate with federal prosecutors against the president.

"If anyone can blow up Trump, it's him," the source told Vanity Fair about Cohen, who is under criminal investigation by federal prosecutors in New York City.

No idea, could be a number of things. My view on Cohen is he remains reluctant and they'll likely have to file charges before he'll consider cooperation.

Since his appointment almost seven months ago, Special Counsel Robert Mueller and his crack team have racked up a $5 million tab as they probe Russia’s meddling in last year’s presidential election and alleged collusion with Donald Trump’s campaign to claim the White House, according to ABC News.

While more details about Mueller’s spending are expected to come out soon, some of the cost involves supporting the work of more than 16 attorneys and “dozens” of FBI agents, as well as paying other staffers and covering travel expenditures, the report states.

Since you want to be technical...….genius

You're right. Insuring America isn't being run by an emotionally and mentally unstable Russian patsy is not worth a penny over a million. That's money better spent in corporate tax returns.

Not "technical."  Just "factual."  You do understand, don't you, that Mueller isn't personally pocketing this money?  They are government employees, being paid government salaries, to do a government  job.

Or the 67 million it has so far cost the taxpayers so Donald can play golf.

The lawyers come from high dollar law firms, which they quit to become part of Muellers team. Of course they aren't personally paid the millions that are spent on the investigation, but it still costs the tax payers over 16 million so far, which goes to travel expenses etc. It is still too much to spend on a politically motivated operation. JMHO

yeah, that's it... he ran out of money :rolleyes:

Much more likely is that he's guilty as sin on a great many things and they have him by the balls and striking a deal is the only way he's gonna stay out of the clink.
