anything they can think of and bringing up new email allegations. However, hoping I'm way off and he has something new!

I think someone will provide some light on Donald's past. What bothers me is that there are so many women who are churchgoers who are probably still going to vote for him despite his obvious and blatant misogyny and foul comments. I don't know what it would take to make these people say, "Okay, I am not voting for him", or if they can't vote for her, just not vote at all. I know some are like that, but not enough. If the bottom fell out of his female support which is around 35-40%, then he'd lose every tossup state, including Arizona and Georgia. But, something big has got to come out where he's just being so repulsive beyond acting like a frat with Billy Bush while admitting he forces contact.

But while both of Eichenwald's stories on Trump have been thorough and well-researched, they didn't exactly set the tv media on fire, and were forgotten within about a day.

was great investigative reporting. But, it pretty much just stays there on the WaPo. tv just doesn't care.

I'm thinking whatever he has investigated won't make it to tv either. We just have to keep sharing this info.

The women that come forward this week were a non-issue for the media. This has to be something better. I'd love some copies of actual documentation of Russian loans or a recording of Trump soliciting a prostitute. Or those tax returns!

totally shocking so many Americans support him. Is nearly half this country like Trump! Is this really what Americans are like now the cover has been stripped off.

This election is shocking. I can understand people voting for Bush, but this guy Trump is incredible. I really think America is descending into the SH**hole of Idiocracy with so many adoring Trump fans and his cast of Deplorables. Hillary hit it right on the first time she called them Deplorables. These, are the people one hopes to somehow avoid in life.

I can understand some liking some of what he says, but the total package is a shocking disaster. He's literally America's 21st century Hitler! Just WTF is wrong with about half of America. FFS, what am I even doing here.

that's why I tempered hopes above, because we've all been so hopeful for things to come out to go along with all the women saying he did this or that to them, but nothing else has. As we know, many people ignore people's claims of being sexually harassed or worse, and so there'll need to be something more concrete to really put a dent of 5% in his support.

At some point in the past Trump contacted one of his many sexual assault victims, possibly even the underage girl who he allegedly raped... and offered them money to keep quiet.

At that point, the victim recorded the conversation with Donald himself... and it's about to get real for Donald and his "I never met any of them" defense.

Probably his story is the product of many weeks and months of careful research, making a Comey story unlikely.

If it's Eichenwald, it likely concerns Trump financial/business/tax misdeeds.
