    "If Trump Falls, Testimonies of Cohen, Pecker, Weisselberg Could Spark anti-Semitic Backlash"

    Pretty unusual analysis from Israel's largest newspaper:

    If Trump Falls, the Testimonies of Cohen, Pecker and Weisselberg Could Spark an anti-Semitic Backlash

    The trio’s public profile is a Jewish stereotype: the lawyer-fixer, the smut-dealing publisher and the numbers whiz who knows it all

    The name of the lawyer who implicated Donald Trump in the commission of federal crimes is Cohen. The name of the publisher who has agreed to tell investigators how he turned his newspaper into a clearinghouse for Cohen’s payments to women is Pecker. And the name of the accountant who has been granted immunity in order to testify about the role played by the Trump Organization in Cohen’s endeavors is Weisselberg. The common denominators of Cohen, Pecker and Weisselberg, beside their willingness to do whatever it takes for Trump in the past and their apparent willingness to inform on him now, is that all three are indisputably and recognizably Jewish.

    Even though it’s too much of a coincidence to ignore, politicians and pundits in the U.S. are in no hurry to dwell on the common characteristics of Cohen, Pecker and Weisselberg. Anyone who does so risks being accused of generalizing, if not actively encouraging anti-Semitism. But this is just the first act: It’s clear that the Jewish gun will go off in the future, somewhere down the line. The racist, supremacist and neo-Nazi element of Trump’s base is already drooling at the impending opportunity of enlisting disgruntled rank and file Trump fans in a battle against the Jewish conspiracy aimed at their idol.

    They may not have to wait long. Trump is in serious trouble and it’s getting worse by the day. Cohen’s admissions in a New York courtroom last week that his payments to porn’s Stormy Daniels and Playboy’s Karen MacDougal were made in accordance with Trump’s instructions have cast the President as a criminal who violated campaign finance laws. Pecker’s testimony could reportedly make clear that the two payments were part of a nefarious system. And Weisselberg’s account, though currently limited to Cohen’s payments, could pave the way to exposure of the long line of alleged misdeeds carried out by Trump as real estate mogul, franchising czar, reality star, presidential candidate and commander in chief.

    Obama got around 1,300 contributions exceding $1,000 totaling $1.8 million that he didn't report. He was fined $375k for that. Now if they can actually convince a judge that paying off a mistress is a campaign contribution, which they couldn't with Edward's, Stormy only got $130k, a lot less than $1.8 million. Even if trump got the same $375k fine, I'm pretty sure that won't bring him down.

    Headline does have bit of fear-mongering aspect and assumes that majority of MAGA supporters will engage in stereo-typing in such a scenario. But to give credit where due, US media has not published such headlines, this is a newspaper of our closest ally abroad.

    Former Trump lawyer Michael Cohen's testimony at House Intelligence Committee is rescheduled to the day of Trump's summit with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un


    • The planned testimony of Michael Cohen, former personal attorney and fixer for President Donald Trump, before the House Intelligence Committee was rescheduled Wednesday to Feb. 28 — just days before he is slated to report to a federal prison.
    • Cohen, whose crimes included ones linked to hush money payoffs to porn star Stormy Daniels and Playboy model Karen McDougal, was originally scheduled to testify before the panel this Friday.
    • But Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, D-Calif., said Cohen's closed-door testimony would be delayed until Feb. 28 "in the interests of the investigation." Trump is due to begin a summit with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un in Vietnam that same day.

    Just a day after the Amazon founder published a detailed overview of the attempts by the David Pecker run tabloid to halt his investigation into how private texts and photos got into the Enquirer’s hands and headlines, parent company American Media Inc is now facing a new probe by prosecutors
    Officials at the office of the U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York have begun looking into the strong-arming allegations against Pecker and AMI that Bezos unveiled on Thursday, sources have confirmed to Deadline.
    The actions of “extortion and blackmail” that the world’s richest man described yesterday may constitute a violation of a deal the feds made late last year. granting AMI freedom from criminal prosecution. That agreement was in exchange for Pecker and the publication providing “substantial and important assistance” to the U.S. Attorney’s office in its investigations into possible misconduct and financial impropriety in the 2016 election by Donald Trump’s campaign.

    The crucial question is whether or not they believe Jesus is the Messiah. As long as they still maintain that he is not, they qualify as Jews.
