Because states can prosecute a sitting President for crimes they commit. https://www.nbcnews.com/news/us-news/source-michael-cohen-met-prosecutors-investigating-trump-organization-n1052761The former personal attorney for President Donald Trump has entered into an agreement with New York City prosecutors to provide information about the president's business operation, a source familiar with the situation told NBC News Wednesday.The Manhattan District Attorney's office is investigating the possibility that the Trump Organization falsified business records, the source said.Representatives from the District Attorney's office met with Cohen on Aug. 20 at Otisville Prison, in upstate New York, where he's serving a three-year sentence, according to the source.The deal stipulates that he will cooperate with the Manhattan District Attorney's office in its investigation. Proffer agreements allow defendants and suspects to provide information to prosecutors without incriminating themselves.Cohen is serving his sentence after pleading guilty to campaign finance violations related to hush money payments to two women who claimed they had affairs with Trump prior to taking office. He also pleaded guilty to lying to Congress about the president's business dealings with Russia and failing to report millions of dollars in income.At his sentencing hearing, Cohen said he took "full responsibility" for his actions but that Trump led him to choose "darkness over light."

>>459001>>459064You really don't get tired of being continually disappointed by these looney-leftist conspiracy theories, do you?How much money do you think the media has fleeced from you at this point, simply by getting you to tune in to listen to them lie to you?How does it feel to be a corporate media stooge?
>>459076>looney-leftist conspiracy theoriesI can tell you didn't read the story because you would have seen Trump's NY state tax filing where he tried to claim the $20 million mansion as being worth $291 million. Look, you can see it without even reading the article.https://www.ft.com/__origami/service/image/v2/images/raw/https%3A%2F%2Fd1e00ek4ebabms.cloudfront.net%2Fproduction%2Fd8b68c29-c9a5-42ad-a3d2-5001b9766b2d_FINAL.jpg

>>459076Trump is a tax dodger and a cheat isn’t as crazy as Obama is a Muslim Kenyan Antichrist who wants to take all of our guns and put us into FEMA camps. So if assuming that the left is being loony, does that make the right batshit insane?

>>459102right, whitewater, epstein, pizzagate, mena and hillary's illegal computer network are all crazy right wing conspiracies, but also any slander against Trump in the yellow press is immediately true.https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Whitewater_controvery"controversy" lol

>>459064Didn't Trump himself bragged about not paying any taxes back in the 2016 election?
>>459268Did she read the one where she let Hondurans get murdered during a fascist coup so that the U.S. could still land it's planes there in case they need to murder anyone from the sky?>beta.washingtonpostWell at least they're admitting it now
>>459276He did. His taxes from 85-95 were revealed. They proved 2 things - he was bankrupt and he evaded taxes.
>>459001I love the Cohen brothers
>>459265>EpsteinWas friends with Trump too or did you forget?>PizzagateThe idea was stupid and still is. The Epstein shit was real, pizzagate isn’t.>MenaWhich one is that?>Hillary’s private email serverOopsy tootsyhttps://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/2019/03/21/their-emails-seven-members-trumps-team-have-used-unofficial-communications-tools/
>>459362>The Epstein shit was real, pizzagate isn’t.It's the same shit. You glow in the dark.
>>459276No no no this isn't about "not" paying taxes, this is about overvaluing your mansion by over 10x in tax filings to get tax deductions from it. The mansion cost somewhere between $19.5-21 million according to Westchester County, NY and Trump claims on IRS forms (and in bank loans, but that's a different case) that the mansion is valued at $297 million.
>>459376>Same shitOne was fact, the other was fiction.Unfortunately for you, the factual one has Trump smack dab in the middle of it and he probably had Epstine killed.Remember, Trump controlled the prison and magically everything happened where he died. The fact conservatives want to blame the Clinton is the most brazen textbook example of projection.
>>459276>bragging about following the law to pay the legal minimum in taxesI don't understand your delusions.>>459001>Trump made me do itwhat a crock of shit, Cohen had lots of clients and if Cohen provided a shady service he did it to more than just Trump.
>>459362>The Epstein shit was real, pizzagate isn’t.literally the same social circle
>>459491I encourage you to fully prosecute all of Epstein's clients, whomever they might be.

>>459278Did you? Show me. Should be easy since the whole thing is public and all.
>>459514I’m genuinely interested in what you were talking about, you can’t expect people to keep up with all of your delusions.
>>459659is it impossible for you to use a search engine? are you that dumb or are you being willfully ignorant? heres a story from back when then washingtonpost still did journalism, before it became the partisan rag that it is today. https://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-srv/politics/special/whitewater/stories/wwtr940527.htm
>>459716Nothing.They were implicated in absolutely nothing. You could have just said that before you linked me to an article that you clearly didn't read.

>>459721>Nov. 19, 1998 - During the first day of impeachment hearings, Starr clears Clinton in relation to the firing of White House travel office workers in 1993 and the improper collection of FBI files revealed in 1996. He also says his office drafted an impeachment referral stemming from Whitewater in 1997, but decided not to send it because the evidence was insufficient.
>>459671Here's the one where the staff acknowledges that Clinton herself needed to make a decision as to whether the coup was military in nature (which it was) which would have prevented them from continuing to receive aid money from the UShttps://www.documentcloud.org/documents/2157198-harold-koh.htmlHere's the one where Clinton asked if a pro-business lobbyist could help them surreptitiously contact the interim president during the coup, helping to diminish the possibility of reinstating the president that had deposed and exiled by the couphttps://www.documentcloud.org/documents/2157199-lanny-davis.htmlHere's the one where the legitimization of the coup is celebrated as a "remarkable thing to witness"https://www.documentcloud.org/documents/2157083-peanut-gallery.htmlIn the original publication of her book Hard Choices, Clinton celebrated her and her subordinates actions as “a plan to restore order in Honduras and ensure that free and fair elections could be held quickly and legitimately, which would render the question of Zelaya moot.”This passage was deleted from the later editions of the book.
