NEW YORK — Donald Trump mistook his sexual assault accuser E. Jean Carroll for his ex-wife Marla Maples when shown a photograph from the 1990s in a deposition at Mar-a-Lago last year, potentially undermining one of the common defenses he has used to deny an attack.
Trump, who is being sued by Carroll, an author and advice columnist, for defamation and sexual assault stemming from the same alleged encounter, has repeatedly said Carroll is not his “type,” suggesting an assault could not have occurred because he would not have pursued her romantically.
“That’s Marla, yeah. That’s my wife,” Trump said under examination from Carroll’s lawyer Roberta Kaplan, in a new selection of excerpts from the deposition that was unsealed Wednesday in U.S. District Court in Manhattan.
Trump’s blunder in a sworn deposition was quickly corrected by his attorney Alina Habba, who told him it was Carroll, not Maples, an actress and singer who was married to Trump from 1993 to 1999.


that whole deposition where he gives his typical word salad answers to questions is preciously why he'll never face in open court questioning as he's likely to blurt out some critical piece of information regarding national security on the stand... dude just needs to be shipped of to a island...

perhaps you've seen the headline of an FBI agent who was arrested because he is accused of taking money from and working with a russian oligarch... but, there's more! 
 
Kaivan Shroff @KaivanShroff
Just to be clear, when the New York Times reported that the FBI saw “no link between Trump and Russia” — a week before the 2016 election — the FBI agent who was just arrested over ties to Russian oligarch Oleg Deripaska was heading up the investigation.

Just an absolute scandal.

"the NYPD, New York State Court Officers, the U.S. Secret Service, the FBI’s Joint Terrorism Task Force, and the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office walk into a conference room..."

City, state and federal law enforcement agencies meet about how to prep for possible Trump indictment

An indictment would involve setting a date and time for Trump to surrender. Trump’s US Secret Service detail would deliver him to the Manhattan district attorney’s office for fingerprinting and then taking mugshots in offices of the district attorney’s detective squad. As is customary in cases where a defendant is allowed to voluntarily surrender, after arrest processing, the former president would be brought directly to an arraignment before a judge where he would likely be released on his own recognizance.

Law enforcement officials who are privy to the discussions said several concerns have been discussed in the planning process, including courthouse security and the potential for demonstrations or rallies outside of the courthouse by Trump supporters and/or counter demonstrations by anti-Trump protesters, with the risk of the two groups clashing.


or, as walkies might summarize it:

congress didn't seize the opportunity to impeach him, but the Manhattan DA will take a swing at convicting him as a civilian... a day that i thought would never come:

I honestly see no court upholding the legal theory that elevates this to a felony.

Cohen’s case is completely different.

thus giving this theory legs:
 
there is a theory out there that the DA might be going for more than just individual, unrelated crimes.  instead, they might try making this a RICO case by arguing that the long list of (at times low-level) crimes are symptomatic of an inherently corrupt organization.  should they go for this grand-slam, more crimes will be heaped on to the stormy thing.
