Ironic watching the "lock her up" crowd gradually finding themselves being locked up. But, of course, it is not surprising.

Projection is the one thing Right Wingers do well. So, whether it's an accusation by Trump that the Democrats are rigging elections or Hannity and company whining about the Hillary conspiring against the US with foreign powers, we can be sure of one thing. The Right Wingers are doing exactly what they are saying the Left is supposedly doing.


The most damning revelation from the Cohen case


As a former investigator, I see the Cohen affair's most damning revelation to be the President's knowing and longtime association with a criminal, not that the criminal in question pleaded guilty to a crime that directly implicates the President of the United States (as disturbing as that is). Given the evidence, Trump can no longer plausibly deny that he was willing to cross the line and work with Cohen to break the law.

After being sentenced on Wednesday to three years in federal prison for committing crimes against the United States...

Put simply, [Trump] had a go-to guy who could help him violate the law, if necessary, to deceive the American voters in an effort to attain the highest office in the land.

The reason this is so important is because there are larger legal issues looming for President Trump regarding his campaign's alleged ties to Russia and the integrity of those in his inner circle. We know Trump has closely associated with at least one criminal -- Michael Cohen -- so how are we to know there weren't other crooks in the candidate's midst?

Lock them up. One by one, if we have to.

From the linked article in the OP:

We could start with Felix Sater.

My favorite example of this was when Hillary called Trump Putin's puppet during the debate and his response?

No puppet. No puppet. You're the puppet! What a classic example of projection.

Then having to watch him humiliate our country by refusing to say one negative word while groveling at Putin's feet. Possibly the only worst thing is watching Trumpettes refusing to say one negative word while groveling at Numnut's feet...
