Two more?  I’ll bet that number is on the low side. 

Evangelicals are gonna need more mulligans. 

When I was just learning, my evangelical Lutheran minister Grandpa told me I only got one Mulligan per hole.  Is that still the rule?

Something like that, but keep in mind that Obama used Dijon mustard on his burger (while the Pride of the GOP was banging porn stars...bless his horny little heart).

that's fine - everybody needs a hobby

however, so far he's: a) proven that stormy's nda is valid, putting her in monetary jeopardy, and b) opened an sdny employee up for criminal charges

Um... no.

a.) There is proof that Trump paid Cohen back for the NDA. There is no proof Trump knew about the contract beforehand, which would mean he could not have been a party to it, and without all parties knowingly entering the contract - it can be judged as invalid. Trump will need to say, on the record, he knew about the contract at the time for that legal argument to lose it's power. In other words, Trump needs to admit in a sworn document the public can access that he lied about the entire thing from the start and that when he called her a liar it was a knowingly false statement. Better to let the NDA slide and keep plausible deniability against a defamation suit. 

b.) He didn't open that guy up to criminal charges. The SDNY employee opened himself up to those charges and has outlined the reasons for it being nothing to do with Avenatti.

I can't believe anybody would spend a further penny on lawyers to try and enforce that NDA - like there's something we don't already know?

But did you see the way the Pride of the GOP lied about it?  Hot Damn but that is Presidential.  Someone to be proud of!

arbitration is supposed to be cheap, quick & quiet. This case has had none of those attributes so far.

Arbitration is the Pride of the GOP’s second favorite way to keep his side chicks from talking. 

Bless his horny little heart.

Stormy's first amendment rights of freedom of speech have not been rescinded. Whether anyone chooses to either listen, or believe her is their choice.

Arbitration is the absolute worst way to handle disputes.  The up front cost is not expensive, but the results often are. 

Mediation then court far, far preferable.

Why is the Pride of New York in such good humor these days?

 

Because the same guy who drafted Stormy's NDA drafted Melania's Pre-Nup.

I wonder if anyone has slipped Melania Avenatti's phone number?

Melania Trump allegedly met with Michael Cohen to plot against Stormy Daniels

Quote

Stormy Daniels and her attorney Michael Avenatti have filed a new lawsuit against Daniels’ former attorney Keith Davidson, accusing him of having plotted against her while he was representing her. The suit makes a number of accusations against Davidson, which the courts will have to sort out. But biggest detail in this story is Melania Trump’s alleged involvement with Michael Cohen’s plot against Daniels.

Giuliani says people in the porn business are not credible. Trump has appeared in three softcore porn videos.

Quote

When Rudy Giuliani said Wednesday that Stormy Daniels has no credibility because she is is a porn star, he neglected to mention that his client, President Donald Trump, has appeared in three Playboy videos that feature nudity and softcore pornographic content.

Maybe Cohen is singing like a canary, and they want to keep him on a roll.

more likely sdny asked avenatti to keep quiet about the meeting.  which he could not do.

so sdny said fuck off

Yup...this time.  With the volume of stuff they took from him, and the lack of privileged material therein, they either have the goods on New York's Most Competent Attorney at this point or they don't.  What is she going to give them, other than a chance to ring him up for applying the same flexibility with the truth that  characterizes seemingly every other person in that crew who has been interviewed?  If they feel the need to jam him up with an obstruction charge (which he may already face, given the shredding, and whatever they used for probable cause for the search warrant of an attorney) and a perjury charge if he's been talking to them, they can reschedule with her...quietly.

I agree - sdny wants to prosecute the case in court, and avenatti only wants publicity.  hence his leak to the press about the meeting.

ms daniels place in sdny's bank fraud / election finance case is small, and thanks to her attorney, all ready public

the real evidence is in the material delivered by Mueller and gathered by sdny

The real questions  did he likely have an associate take the fall for  impregnating a women.  Why did that person pay $1.6m through Michael Cohen using the same NDA as stormy Daniel and what did that associate get for falling on the sword.

A billion give or take a few million and for his partner a photo with Trump.

His partner George Nader a convicted paedophile, who served a six-month sentence in Virginia for the possession of child pornography and a year in prison in Prague on ten counts of sexually abusing boys set up shop in the UAE and became friends with the princes there and helped set up the deal. 

Broidy took the fall for Trump, a bribe perfectly timed and trump demonstrated he has no problems with paedophilia and child abusers.200826449-in-this-oct-25-2017-photo-acquired-by-the-associated-press-george-nader-poses-backstage-wi.jpg.da8e9fe109df2425a4e5078840debce9.jpg

Don't forget his friendship with Jeffrey Epstein.  Remember, plenty of folks on the right attacked Bill Clinton for being a pal of Epstein's.  Wonder if they see this the same way?

It'd be interesting to learn who came up with the idea of this "sting".

"My office has reviewed the charges filed by the Columbus Division of Police, and I’ve determined that these crimes were not committed, based on the fact that Ms. Clifford has not made regular appearances at this establishment as required under the law," Columbus city attorney Zach Klein said in a statement Thursday afternoon. "We’ll do the same inquiry for the other defendants involved, as well. My office was not involved in this sting operation, so any additional questions about it must be directed to the Columbus Division of Police. The charges have been dismissed."

I'm predicting that Kasich will launch a state-level investigation on the motives and involvement of others surrounding this event.  How can it hurt"

I should add, of Republicans, Kasich seems to be a decent guy and reminds me of the old days where it didn't have to be black or white, shades of gray.
