    What I don't see in the Cohen plea deal is anything related to lobbying with registering as a lobbyist or taking bribes. Is that in there anywhere? Because it seems to me that there were several companies paying him millions of dollars so he could use his personal relationship with the president to get them favorable treatment from federal agencies. It looks like corruption to me. And, I would like to see prosecutions for the companies in question considered, at least. And a guilty plea from Cohen that admits that he was peddling influence would make bringing justice against those companies easier.

    Key takeaway: "in coordination with and at the direction of a federal candidate for office"

    This is a centrist/moderate that endorsed Gorsuch.

    They need more on Trump than just the payment to Stormy and the other lady. The campaign finance laws have gaping holes that might be difficult to get Trump with. Also, if committing perjury over some cigar play in the oval office didn't get Clinton removed from office I don't think hush money to keep one of Trump's side pieces quiet will get him out either.

    Unindicted Co-Conspirator, UCC, has a nice ring to it.

    it’s deja vu all over again.

    In the mid-70s, for the Watergate break-in, the US Gov’t indicted 12 of Nixon’s top aides, and an unnamed co-conspirator

    That's a tweet by Lanny Davis, who by the way, is Cohen's lawyer.
