Lawyers claiming to be associated with Rudy Giuliani reached out to Michael Cohen after he was raided and nobody is talking about a potential crime that is being investigated in the Southern District of New York involving Trump.
ABC News reported:
The sources familiar with the contacts said the two lawyers first reached out to Cohen late in April of last year and that the discussions continued for about two months. The attorneys, who have no known formal ties to the White House, urged Cohen not to leave the joint defense agreement, the sources told ABC News, and also offered a Plan B. In the event Cohen opted to exit the agreement, they could join his legal team and act as a conduit between Cohen and the president’s lawyers.
At one point in the discussions, one of the attorneys sent Cohen a phone screenshot to prove they were in touch with Giuliani, the sources said.
That is strange, but it gets weirder.
Here is Rep. Raja Krishnamoorthi’s answer when he was asked by MSNBC’s Chris Hayes if Cohen’s closed-door testimony before the House Intelligence Committee provided more details on what the SDNY is investigating:

Krishnamoorthi said, “Well, um, I can’t get into the specifics of the closed-door testimony, but I don’t have all the answers yet. The one thing –The one thing I can say, Chris, is, you know, we in Congress have to get to the bottom of this, because unfortunately, we can no longer trust that the U.S. Attorneys who are operating under the supervision of William Barr, the new attorney general, are actually going to turn findings of their investigations.”
Chris Hayes accurately pointed out that the Congressman’s answer was not a no.
There is a big shoe about to drop, and the breadcrumbs suggest that Trump and Giuliani have been using non-affiliated attorneys to reach out to witnesses and defendants to try to keep them quiet and onboard with Trump. In other words, the President Of The United States may be trying to silence witnesses and obstruct justice.
History could be repeating itself as just like Richard Nixon; Trump could be engaging in a cover-up that will lead to his political demise.
