Fedor Emelianenko is one of the greatest heavyweight fighters in the history of mixed martial arts (MMA), which is an extremely brutal and violent sport. Fedor Emelianenko also happens to be a Russian who has been seen extensively through the years with one of his biggest supporters: Russian President Vladimir Putin.
Michael Cohen’s attorney Brent Blakely was in a Los Angeles court on Friday arguing that the lawsuit filed by Stormy Daniels against Donald Trump’s personal lawyer-fixer should be delayed. The reason given is that because Cohen will be indicted in the near future the civil lawsuit should not continue at this time.
The president is facing big legal trouble coming from prosecutors and he has equally serious political trouble coming from public opinion, as shown in a new poll from ABC and the Washington Post.
The New York Daily News reported yesterday that Michael Cohen owes New York nearly $54,000 in unpaid taxi medallion taxes. This points out a couple of important things.
One is that Cohen may have broken state laws and has legal jeopardy for those possible crimes. The other is that the FBI raid on Cohen’s offices was not just about Donald Trump, but was about obtaining evidence to charge Cohen for crimes he committed.
As the investigation gets closer to the president, Trump's bullying tactics are only likely to become worse.
The FBI's raid of Paul Manafort's office means that they have evidence of criminal wrong doing by Trump's former campaign manager during the 2016 election.
