The New York Times believes it can publish any type of headline and if picked up by the opposition media, it then becomes viral.
But Americans seem to be getting so much smarter than that.
Here’s my question to those involved including the NY Times writers and editors who pieced this together. What does this have to do with Russia, let alone collusion to win the 2016 Presidential Election?
If these tapes are authentic, it’s attorney/client privilege at best but where’s the crime? Is this something that will nuke our national intelligence? Will the DOJ be walloped with allegations and insinuations just because?

The F.B.I. seized the recording this year during a raid on Mr. Cohen’s office. The Justice Department is investigating Mr. Cohen’s involvement in paying women to tamp down embarrassing news stories about Mr. Trump ahead of the 2016 election. Prosecutors want to know whether that violated federal campaign finance laws, and any conversation with Mr. Trump about those payments would be of keen interest to them.
The recording’s existence further draws Mr. Trump into questions about tactics he and his associates used to keep aspects of his personal and business life a secret. And it highlights the potential legal and political danger that Mr. Cohen represents to Mr. Trump. Once the keeper of many of Mr. Trump’s secrets, Mr. Cohen is now seen as increasingly willing to consider cooperating with prosecutors.
“Nothing in that conversation suggests that he had any knowledge of it in advance,” Mr. Giuliani said, adding that Mr. Trump had directed Mr. Cohen that if he were to make a payment related to the woman, write a check, rather than sending cash, so it could be properly documented.
“In the big scheme of things, it’s powerful exculpatory evidence,” Mr. Giuliani.
Giuliani said that Pres. Trump had discussed payments with his lawyer, but they were never made, and his client has done nothing wrong. What many people are missing out on this story is how the Trump associates and friends have been targeted with morning raids on their houses, but Hillary Clinton associates got immunity and government lobbyist jobs to sustain their way of living.
This recorded phone call is just that, a recorded phone call. With the emergence of August coming up and Congressional recesses, will the media create a narrative around this or drum up something about Judge Brett Kavanaugh?
