LA Times 7/28 --- Was The 2016 Election Legitimate?

http://www.latimes.com/opinion/op-ed/la-oe-heffernan-trump-illegitimate-20180728-story.html




We need to talk about a forbidden subject: the legitimacy of the current president.

There’s been a code of silence around President Donald Trump’s shady victory in 2016. It’s one of those tiptoe-around-it things that the American family just doesn’t talk about. And with good reason. Whatever your politics, it’s perilous to question the soundness of an American election.rder — and grow harder to ignore.

A nation devoted to majority rule has a minority president. Who squeaked into office on an electoral college technicality. Against most data projections. Using dark money. Using voter suppression. Using Russian disinformation.

As more and more facts about Trump’s incongruous victory emerges, the doubts gnaw harder — and grow harder to ignore.

People: Don't fall for the Giuliani ratf*ckery regarding Cohen tonight

Lanny Davis says that Cohen did not release that information regarding the Trump Tower meeting and Don Jr.

Giuliani appears to have set in play a dark op tonight, in order to damage Cohen's value to Mueller. Giuliani set it up anonymously, then went on camera to rake and razz and lie about Cohen betraying Trump with lies and so on.

If Cohen's potential testimony is devalued by leaks attributed to him, a deal with Mueller becomes less likely. Which means that Cohen would be gored.

Strategic gutting by Giuliani. See it for what it is. Trying to ruin Cohen.
