A new wrinkle seems to have bubbled up to the surface.

Trump says that he only hired Cohen due to a favor from long ago.
Trump hired Cohen in 2006.
Roger Stone says that Trump hired Cohen as his lawyer because Cohen bought Trumps Condos at inflated prices.
Cohen originally stated that he had used a home equity loan to pay off Stormy Daniels and presumably others.
The Stormy Daniels Affair happened in July 2006.

Though it's unclear when exactly Cohen started working for Trump. It is safe to say that Trump hired Cohen explicitly to pay off women using the money he laundered with those properties that he told Cohen to buy. Now we seemingly know the reason for those inflated prices.

Reference: Roger Stone says Michael Cohen's 'favor' for Trump was to buy his condos at inflated price

So Roger Stone is now a trustworthy source whom should be believed?

I need a little more than just Stones word to believe this is 100% true.

I do not know, but if he is throwing Cohen under the bus. It fits. The problem is, he is exposing himself with every breath he takes and it is glorious!!!!!!

Partly why I'm not believing it as told. Stone has a long history of lying or outright making **** up to benefit himself. He makes Trump almost look honest.

That being said, you don't hire Cohen to help you get your kids get out of a traffic ticket.

True, but Trump is the kinda guy that would hire Cohen simply because he was a yes man.

It could be over the condo thing I'll admit I don't know. I'm just not taking Stones word on anything without verification from another source.

Trump is all these guys lifeline, due to his pardon power. Why would Stone throw Cohen and Trump under the bus, here. It makes no sense. Unless Stone was quietly cooperating?

Easy. Cohen ain't playing nice anymore w/the Trumps. Stone is. Stone likely angling for pardon but it's tough because Stone is also leaking to the media. I think he could go either way.

What a freaking mess.
Everyone it seems is flipping on every one. You throw in some porn star to add to the mix.
I wish there was a spoiler to show everyone how this all ends up. As right now I don't think anyone knows but it isn't going to be pretty.

I remember Watergate with Nixon and I always thought how could have Nixon got involved with 3rd rate bumbling thieves over something so stupid. And now we have that same insanity supersized by Trump.
