Yeah whatever. I've seen so many bloggers and pundits whining "ANY DAY NOW, MAYBE TOMORROW" ever since the election. All for naught. Seriously, I doubt anything will happen to him until the 2020 election, or if a very wealthy super-PAC operator decides he wants The Big Fat T out of power.
Donnie's a great liar precisely because he's too arrogant to admit he might be wrong. To at least some idiots, that is the most important trait of a "great leader". It worked for Sean Hannity!......lol.....
And the irony in bringing up Sean Hannity is that Cohen was his lawyer on some level, what that level is, we don't know.

Well it went like this: Michael Moore thought Trump would possibly bail before the Inauguration, he didn't, but he wouldn't put his businesses into a blind trust, beginning the Emoluments saga and it's been Flynn, Comey, Bannon, etc., on a rollercoaster that might crash into a wall, or it might go where people hope it goes and Trump becomes an ex-president before 2020.
In many ways Trump is returning us to the crud of the past: Nixon's bizarro attempt at spying on the Democrats in the Watergate building during his re-election campaign; Andrew Johnson was impeached late into his sole term (1865-1869); the Grant administration was filled with scandals for two terms (1869-1877) to the point where they called it "Grantism." The other impeachment was Bill Clinton's after the inconclusive Whitewater investigation, "Travelgate", the Vince Foster suicide, R. Emmet Tyrell's stupid "Arkansas Project" that sank his own magazine (The American Spectator, which was resurrected a few years later only to exist online*), and President Clinton's stupid belief that he could get away with a victory blowjob before his term in office ended (which is what the stupid impeachment revolved around ultimately.) Ronald Reagan's Iran-Contra affair was not impeachable, the lies over the Iraq invasion during the Bush II administration somehow OK.
* So it has to fight it out with outfits like Breitbart and The Federalist, sites Alex Nichols looked at in his "guide to conservative publications" last year for TheOutline. It should be said that one of the publications, Heatstreet, was shut down two months after Nichols' article because Rupert Murdoch saw it was a waste of time. Link to Nichols chatting with the Chapo Trap House crew about the guide last summer.
During the "Whitewater years" the National Review used to run tiny mail-order ads of the "Billery" watch which ran backward but told correct time, two-year calendars with rip-away grids so you could slowly disintegrate Bill Clinton's face, etc. This mirrored the sort of ads you saw in National Lampoon magazine in the early 1970s of posters mocking Nixon ("He kept our boys out of Northern Ireland"; Quaker Oats can parody with Nixon's face and "Quaker Oafs"), the same sort of grid calendars with Nixon's face on them, and so on. The longer Nixon was in office, the more Nazi-themed posters "Yes Art" put up for sale, including reprints of the 1933 Hitler-head-only campaign poster.
