    My thread is about the pay to play that Cohen setup to give corporations access to Trump. Surely even you can see the difference. Why aren't you concerned about entities paying to gain access to Trump and government, like you were with Clinton? Did you ever once give a damn about the entities that hacked the servers to leak the emails? Didn't think so.
    Nobody is holding a gun to your head. If you don't like what I post, ignore me. I'll post what I want, when I want, and where I want, regardless of how you or anyone else feels about it.

    Apparently people don't enjoy when their hypocrisy is pointed out.

    I guess there are others who can't see the hypocrisy when it's pointed out.

    Have seen a news article claiming Cohen's LLC was set up for "access" to Trump. Avenatti didn't say that either, Avenatti said "insight into" Trump. .......... Sure, I care, I'm still waiting for Mueller to indict the hackers of the DNC server/s. Discovery should be quite interesting.

    Who's the hypocrit again? A shadow, a shade, a penumbra?

    Recall that from my first post in this thread I said it's not about the story but about hypocrisy, the OP's specialty. I only asked who were these hypocrites.

    The boogieman?

    The first sentence should read "Haven't seen a news article", sorry for any confusion.

    I hope you know, hypocrisy isn't inclusive to ONE party.
