The Democrats’ big plan to impeach Trump just backfired on national television

The left’s push to impeach Donald Trump recently centered on a secret audio recording made by Trump’s lawyer Michael Cohen.

Democrats and journalists were convinced it held the key to proving Trump committed criminal acts.

But the plan backfired on national television when everyone heard what was on the tape.

CNN’s Chris Cuomo obtained a copy of the recording from Cohen’s attorney Lanny Davis.

The CNN host played the recording on his program and America finally got to hear the contents of their conversation about purchasing the story of former Playboy playmate Karen McDougal after McDougal claimed she carried on a year-long affair with Trump back in 2006 when he was the host of NBC’s The Apprentice.

Their conversation went as follows:

COHEN: Correct. So, I’m all over that. And, I spoke to Allen about it, when it comes time for the financing, which will be —

TRUMP: Wait a sec, what financing?

COHEN: Well, I’ll have to pay him something.

TRUMP: Don’t pay with cash.

COHEN: No, no, no, no, no. I got it.

TRUMP: Check.

The tape is far from a bombshell.

In fact, it vindicated Trump.

All the conversation shows is a lawyer walking his client through the steps necessary to comply with campaign finance reporting laws.

Secondly, no payment was ever made to acquire McDougal’s story.

Like Russia collusion and the firing of James Comey, the Cohen tape is another fizzled attempt to create a fake news scandal surrounding Trump’s conduct.

You can listen to the tape for yourself below:

    I almost didn’t fill out the poll because I DON’T CARE what he did years ago in his personal life. I feel bad for Melania having to put up with this crap. All I care about is what a great job President Trump is doing for this country.

    From a life time Reg. Democrat. I am 87 and never thought I would see my party be such a lying rotten party, nor did I think they would ever elect idiots to guide this country by, all I see are a bunch of crooks filling their own bank accounts. I highly suggest that everyone in Washington be tested for drugs just like the worker in the factories and public are, I also suggest that a audit is pulled on their checking accounts, savings accounts, their children and investigate for offshore accounts. If graft is found, then prosecute to the fullest. I was in finance for at least 40 years and was audited at least 4 times a year and came up clean. I wonder just how many in DC would.

    • Bob L says:

      Agreeded
      And I think that all the deep state swamp RATS personal information including their families be made public on the internet. They seem to have no problem prying into everyone else’s private lives and making it public so what not theirs.
      If they are all so honest then what do they have to hide????

    • Cheryl says:

      I was a dem until Gore ran. Don’t like either of the Bushes, they’re globalists. But the dems have always been rotten. From the beginning when they formed the KKK to the time they formed the violent unions and until and including now. Hitler patterned his Nazi party after the American Democratic Party. Andrew Jackson was proud of his reputation as the Indian Killer. For years these people (democrats) have pulled the wool of the citizens of this country. They’re the ones who made us the biggest nation of baby killers under the guise of women;s health.

  4. A says:

    The democrats are getting worried. Anything they hear they try to make something out if it. They are dying and they know it. They are losing, they know they are done.

    • Bob L says:

      We still need to keep the pressure on the left on the multitude of serious crimes committed by the DNC and the DOJ , FBI etc. the republicans need to drive this and the All the success in the economy points Home for the 2018 elections

  5. K says:

    Dems are so consumed with their deep hatred for our Great President that they’re breaking a cardinal rule… DONT MAKE DECISIONS BASED ON EMOTION. RATHER BEST BEST ON LOGIC. Logic seems to be lacking with Dems.

  6. Jeffrey J. Hill says:

    Oh well… My advice is to all Democrats is that they n-e-e-d to find a national issue other than impeaching Pres. Trump. “Why?” Because the country has thrived under Trump where it was starving for eight years under our Affirmative Acton President, Barack Obama. Also; the Democrats have no one with any name recognition ready to go. Frankly, it is too big a political mountain to climb.

    • Bob L says:

      But we must keep fighting because it’s clear the DNP will cheat or do whatever they can to fix and election. I am thinking voter fraud needs to b a major focus just like the big Russian fix

      If it weren’t for President Obama we might not have done the intelligence community assessment that we did that set up a whole sequence of events which are still unfolding today including Special Counsel Mueller’s investigation. President Obama is responsible for that. It was he who tasked us to do that intelligence community assessment in the first place. CLAPPER’S OWN CONFESSION

    DIANE, YOU REALLY ARE A PATHETIC PERSON TO BE PITIED. YOU MAY BE DEMON POSSESSED IN WHICH CASE YOU NEED A LOT MORE THAN MY PRAYERS. I KNOW THAT NORMAL PEOPLE WITH A HEALTHY MIND DON’T RESPOND THE WAY YOU DO. YOU ARE MORE THAN MEAN AND VINDICTIVE , YOU ARE DERANGED OR DEMONIC. AT ANY RATE, I FEEL SORRY FOR YOU AND KNOW YOU ARE A UNHAPPY PERSON.

  9. Anne Gerrard says:

    I seriously don’t see how the democrats can talk about anyone. They are the ones that have the record on adultery. Remember they are the ones that keep a slush fund, of taxpayers money, to pay off their mistresses and keep them quiet, and that’s current not almost twenty years ago. I just read that they are griping about Trump removing security clearances from those no longer employed and threatening what they will do if he uses taxpayers money. That’s an oxymoron to me when you consider how the democrats waste our money on frivolous things. I’d rather use my money getting rid of security clearances that should have been done when their employment terminated than to pay off some self righteous idiots fancy women.

  10. How about this for starters We the People demand a special counsel to probe into the background of Robert Mueller, Rod Rosenstein, Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer, Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, John Kerry, Valerie Jarrett, former director Susan Rice, and many more I don’t want to sit here and start naming names but let’s get the ball rolling and let’s take them all down and then we go after George Soros we either hang that man or we kick him out of the country penniless

  11. San Jose Mike says:

    By now we all know that Donald Trump has had some inappropriate relationships with women, during the time he had been married. We know of some of them. Likely some are also false and never occurred.

    We know that he has had some character defects. We get that. On the other hand, it appears that he is trying hard to “correct” his previous defects, now that he is president. He also has an enormously demanding work schedule and he seems to be working harder than any other recent president.

    He is as much a pragmatist as a conservative. It is hard to understand the intense hatred against him. Most of us recognize his faults as well as his honest efforts, which have been nothing short of remarkable.

    I think for Democrats, their party has turned into hate. We also see this with Palestinians. The “hate Party” is so constipated that it simply cannot get past the single calcified blockage they have in their colons.

    “When the female wasp injects its egg into a live caterpillar, the egg hatches and consumes the live caterpillar from the inside out.”

    That defines the Democrats perfectly.

    It would seem that there is not enough intelligence in the entire Democratic party to fill a very small thimble!

    • Jeremiah Kirkendall says:

      Not even the intelligence that the Almighty gave to the smallest diminutive ant.

    • Diane says:

      LOL! This coming from a brain dead conservative! That’s hysterical!

      • Coastie says:

        Oh the hypocrisy, Before Trump ever considered running for President, he was the darling of the New York City Democrats. See he had to work within the confines of “The System” of the political elites of the city to get anything done. Having learned all that, he saw the need to do something nationwide to break the strangle hold of corruption and cronyism that is rampant in BOTH parties.

    • John says:

      Everyone get out and vote Republican across the board in the Mid Terms in November and shut these Lunatic Libtards up FOR GOOD !!!

      • Diane says:

        Are you talking to the 30% of the nation who supports this moron? There’s a blue tsunami coming in Nov like you’ve never seen before because 70% of the nation wants him to be removed! Guess we’ll see who laughing come Nov.

        • Carol says:

          Yesterday Trump’s approval rating reached 45%. Higher than any other President. So, your 30/70% is reversed. But good luck in Nov. anyway. You’re going to need it. #WalkAway.

          • Diane says:

            How can say it’s reversed? Are you that stupid that you can’t do simply math? Good luck in life…..you’re going to need it!

My problem with morality of the powerful has not changed I do NOT like some one screwing around on their spouses but why don’t we call out ALL OF THEM and not 12 years after the fact!! How about ALL of the Kennedy’s or Johnson’s or the CLINTON’S !!! Not the GOP is much better but OMG why does the lefts morality seem so damn CONVENIENT????

    • Diane says:

      The FIRST time?????? Do live under a rock? Oh, that’s right, you live in an alternative universe and are tightly contained in the Faux AlmostNews propaganda bubble!

  17. Jhn says:

    Well it appears that the heat has been turned up on the crime family, Hill & Bill Inc., and the slimy creatures who gleefully took part in it under the presumption that Hill would be president are squirming like a worm just dug up that squirms trying to find somewhere to hide. If any semblance of honesty had existed in the democratic party, they would not be where they are now. Well past time they are tried for their criminal activity. The Hill & Bill charitable foundation is, as I write this, being investigated, but the full investigation will not end until the redacted files are de-classified and turned over to Congress, which should happen around August 29th.

    • Ron says:

      The problem with the Hill and Bill foundation investigation, it is being done by the same FBI that exonerated her from the obvious crimes she has committed, the same FBI that “investigated” and white washed the IRS in the illegal attacks against opposition to Obama groups, and the “investigation” that white washed the BATFE and Eric Holder’s Fast and Furious gun running program. The same FBI that attempted to subvert a presidential election! We can expect the same out come with the Hill and Bill foundation! Just like any banana republic!

  18. Yes and I would like to see all of them arrested for they planned this action. The raid took place which was against the law to start with but the lawyer in question never had a problem with it. they all worked together to make this tape and they are all criminals. On top of that it was treason at that point of bring it forward to remove a President. this is a total batch of scum, more then likely Converted Islamic Muslims so that they can serve Obama and that Trash Hillary the murderer of our veterans and our ambassador in Benghazi

    • Ron says:

      Treason isn’t the accurate term, legally. Sedition is more appropriate in this case. Other than that, you are right on!

  19. Ron says:

    If the radical left, aka the Demorat Party, can’t find any evidence of crimes by Trump, their last card is the hopes they will regain control of Congress! Then they will, if necessary , invent whatever charges they come up with to impeach and remove Trump. In other words, a Coup D’etat! It will not matter to the Demorats if these is any validity to the charges, just like it doesn’t matter there is no validity for the Mueller “investigation”! It is becoming more obvious every day that dog and pony show was initiated on made up evidence. A Demorat controlled Congress will do the same thing with impeachment!

  20. Miss Mellie says:

    Ho hum. Another demoncrat bomshell that is a dud. What’s next?

  21. Brad says:

    I believe that this attorney probably has tapes on a number of clients, hoping some day to cash in by blackmailing them. In any case, publicly releasing tapes of clients, he should be disbarred. If he taped a phone conversation where one of the participants was in a State that prohibits taping, unless both parties agree to it, he should be prosecuted.

  22. Hal Lemoyne says:

    Do you agree that President TRUMP never had to be exonerated of any crime, can’t exonerate an innocent person??
    ABSOLUTELY @ (100%)=326,713,119 US voters

    Our US President Donald J TRUMP never had to be exonerated, because no Authority needs to exonerate

    an innocent person/people that’s never committed a crime of any kind, ever

    this is an awesome truth
    this is my TRUMPing Truth!!!

  23. bagster53 says:

    if the doj would start investigating these slime ball democrats ,like the obomas and the clintons , the democrats would stop this b/s , everyone knows democrats are the lowest form of life , even the gutter is to good for them , they live in the sewer , all the crimes oboma and hillary commited and they are still free to walk around , why

    • Bagster 53 that’s because there’s more evil on the Democrats side in Washington to be able to use taxpayer money to pay off those who know anything or have them killed off just like KILLERY CLINTON has done so many times in the past and gotten away with it they’re all in it including the rhinos

  24. Jan13 says:

    I wonder how many other clients Cohen taped without their knowledge.
    He is just another sleazy lawyer, reminds me of Stormy’s mouthpiece.

  25. D J says:

    What president Trump did before he became president is between him and his family. The Democrats are so disgusting the way they focus on these events and not what is best for our country. If you want to look at past events how about Roosevelt, the Kennedy pigs, rapping, murder and degrading women, Johnson, Obama and what he did and let’s not forget the lowest of them all the Clintons. That is what we know. What is in the past of the Biden and the other Democrats that are constantly bringing up Trumps past before he was in government. The others were in office.

    • Jan13 says:

      I agree, What anyone did, short of murder in the past, is just that, the past.
      So far Pres Trump is doing a good job , just what we elected him to do.
      The Dems / RINOs should be careful about those in glass houses shouldn’t throw stones, I’m sure more than one has something in their past they would like to forget.

  26. Beth says:

    Geez……give it a rest will you? Who the hell cares what happened many years ago! He could have done anything he wanted to just like the rest of us!!! So he’s not perfect who cares neither are any of us!!! Democrats I suggest you work on your own dam party you are getting no where with this garbage it just makes you look like the hypocrites that you are! Get some Prozac and have a drink maybe go talk to someone about these anger issues!!

  27. Shelley Gomez says:

    This will go on until the American people stand up and say Enough is Enough!!!!

  28. Lydia says:

    All I heard was a shady lawyer (aren’t they all? Isn’t that who’s been running our gov’t?
    Congress is almost exclusively Lawyers or have studied Law! ) — telling the President he needs to set up “financing” & recommending “Cash” to avoid paper trail. … And I clearly heard Mr. Trump say, “No, no, no — Check” … which indicates he’s doing things above board… pay by check; I have nothing to hide”.
    Now Cohen, that’s another story … recording your client without his knowledge, and then using it as leverage — IN CASE YOUR OWN SHADY DEALS COME TO LIGHT — & then violating your attorney-client privilege, is a clear indication you’re dealing with a Sleazy Lowlife. S
    Stupid CNN — Airing this shows their inability to think critically … you hate someone so much, you fail to see that your attempts to smear him — actually EXONERATE PRESIDENT TRUMP! 😄

  29. ltrail says:

    When it became unpopular to be found out as a member of the Communist Party of America, members joined the rank and file of the Democrat Party. There lies the reason for thuggery, lies, name-calling, voter-fraud, and violence coming from the Democrat Party liberals. And most of the MSM is an arm of the Democrat Party. Communists love to control the media and spew their propaganda

  30. Fred Doe says:

    To those weak minds who are apparently still unaware that the Russian “dossier” is a lie from beginning to end, ask yourself these questions and consider the proper answers.
    Who created and provided the lies in the phony dossier? Answer: Russian operatives!
    Who gladly accepted those lies from an American enemy to try and corrupt our election with them and to then try to destroy a sitting president? The DNC and hillary!
    Who by default then is aiding and abetting Russian interference in our elections? The DNC and hillary!

  31. Wills says:

    Now the democrats and Mueller will have to search all of President Trmp’s closets looking for hiding Russians. How long is this farce going to continue?

    • cliff says:

      Until the PRESIDENT FINALLY TELLS SESSIONS THE JOB IS DONE AND TELLS HIM TO FIRE MUELLER.

    • mrp says:

      President Trump ate Russian dressing on his salad yesterday. That’s all Mueller needs to convict him.

      • CrustyOldGeezer says:

        it’s worse than that.

        The Chef prepares the Russian Dressing immediately before serving.

        No store bought stuff, just like it’s fresh from Vlads table scraps

    • Ron says:

      It will continue until the Demorats regain control of Congress. Everything Mueller is doing is designed to drag it out until then. At that point the investigation will no longer be necessary. Impeachment of Trump can and will go forward! It will not matter there is no evidence of wrong doing on Trump’s part. They will invent evidence, just as they invented evidence to set up the Mueller dog and pony show in the first place!

  32. BajaRon says:

    So, what is new here? Democrats spending tax payer money to further their agenda. I suppose they might someday find a cause they can support with facts. But lies work just as well for them. And lies are much easier to produce.

    Besides. Lies are so flexible and can be fit into any situation. Where as facts are so rigid and unforgiving. It’s hard to get them to fit the moment.

  33. David says:

    Just another wild goose chase bu thoes crazy lefts Democrats looking for an excape goat the would do better if thay just disbolish the Democrats and just have a Republican Party Only. Thay can’t do anything right what ever they do they just keep putting there neck in a nueice to hang there self. Thay are undoutley the worst PARTY in the Good Old USA more and more people in the Democrat Party are going to walkaway from there Party the way tha are scrueing up the way thay are going about there business. All the wemon in politics are CRAZY CRAZY they do not know when to come in out of the RAIN. Just let them keep doing what they are doing tha are bringing all this Trash down on there selfs.

    Now let President Donald Trump get the people’s business done in Washington DC.

    • Graystone says:

      President Trump has already accomplished much. Think about what he could (have) accomplish if he hadn’t been bombarded with unwarranted distraction’s!

    • G says:

      AMEN, AMEN AND AMEN, James P Hutchins! The Dem libs, I am afraid, will never leave POTUS alone. I have never seen or heard of anything like the anger and hate for President Trump they have. We went through 8 years of BHO, hated every minute of it BUT, we had more class than to conduct ourselves the way these folks do. They call us deplorables “uneducated white trash” well, what I see from the majority of them, we have more education and breeding than they do. I would be ashamed for anyone to see me do and say things they are. I don’t think any of them understand or know the definition of “self-respect”. So please, learn and practice, practice, practice.

      • Ron says:

        Let us hope and pray the Demorats keep up their vitriol! They are exposing themselves for who and what they really are. Hate filled bigots! They are tearing down the myth the left is the home of love, benevolence, compassion, and inclusion! At last the American People can see this myth for what it is! Everything the left accuses Conservatives of being, they are 10 times over.
