Rudy Giuliani is trying to defend Trump by saying that the president had no idea that his lawyer who he talks to regularly was selling access to the White House and the Oval Office. In other words, Giuliani has adopted the Trump is a clueless idiot defense.
A disgusted senior Novartis employee told StatNews that many who work there "feel disgusted," over the drug company's $1.2 million payment for access to President Trump, saying, “People are angry and confused, because it makes all of us look bad."
Former Watergate prosecutor Nick Akerman said on MSNBC that the Michael Cohen investigation would provide evidence of the Trump/Russia conspiracy.
Sarah Huckabee Sanders had no answers as reporters asked her about Michael Cohen's swampy behavior and the president who promised to drain the swamp.
Michael Cohen promised one of the world's biggest drugmakers access to Trump and the White House in exchange for $1.2 million.
According to people in both Trump and Cohen world, the $500,000 payment made to Michael Cohen by a Russian oligarch was meant to buy access to Trump.
Last night at 10 pm EDT Stormy Daniels attorney Michael Avenatti appeared on The Last Word With Lawrence O’Donnell and elaborated on his bombshell disclosures about money flowing from Russia to a company set up by Donald Trump’s personal attorney, Michael Cohen. In effect he said he thought Cohen set up the company to receive money from companies who wanted to buy access to the President of the United States.
The Wall Street Journal reported yesterday that Donald Trump attorney/fixer Michael Cohen received access to $774,000 of funding during the height of the president’s 2016 campaign. Cohen had previously said that he used $130,000 of his own money to pay off porn star Stormy Daniels to keep her quiet about her sexual relationship with Trump.
An angry Rudy Giuliani just admitted that the FBI has tapes of Trump talking to Michael Cohen by responding to reports of a Cohen wiretap by complaining that attorney/client privilege is dead.
Robert Costa reported on MSNBC:
Fox News host Laura Ingraham blasted President Donald Trump’s new legal analyst and spokesman Rudy Giuliani, for contradicting Trump’s claims that he didn’t know about payments his personal attorney Michael Cohen allegedly made to former adult film star Stormy Daniels. Ingraham said that Giuliani’s televised comments were “a problem” because they contradicted what the president had earlier said about the matter.
The stable genius Donald Trump and his world-class lawyer/fixer Michael Cohen probably would be shocked to learn that the United States has federal laws that say how political campaign money can be spent, because based on their actions it seems that they don’t know that such laws even exist.
In a telephone interview with Fox News on Thursday morning, President Donald Trump revealed for the first time that he did indeed know about his lawyer Michael Cohen’s payment of $130,000 to Stormy Daniels.
An out of control Trump claimed that Michael Cohen was not his lawyer, and he had nothing to do Cohen, which destroyed any attorney/client privilege that existed between Trump and Cohen.
Last week during a court hearing in New York Michael Cohen’s lawyers reluctantly disclosed a secret that a lot of people were hoping would remain hidden. They revealed, at the judge’s insistence, that Fox News host Sean Hannity has been a client of Donald Trump’s lawyer/fixer for a long time.
Kellyanne Conway was sent on CNN to defend Trump, but instead, she made things worse by being unable to answer numerous questions on why Trump is worried about Michael Cohen flipping.
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 FBI raid on the offices of Trump lawyer-fixer Michael Cohen may have implications between just providing evidence for criminal prosecutions. It may have also provided information about other lawsuits Cohen was involved in.
Stormy Daniels and her lawyer Michael Avenatti have proven that they are as adept as Donald Trump at generating media stories and staying in the public eye. The porn star’s latest gambit is her upcoming interview and photo spread in the May issue of Penthouse Magazine.
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.
In front of his Security Council yesterday, Mr. Trump commented on the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s earlier raid and warrant served on his longtime friend and lawyer, Michael Cohen.
Lashing out at the Federal Bureau of Investigation, calling the investigation a “witch hunt” and a “disgrace,” Trump said the following regarding the raid which took place in multiple locations earlier in the day:
In a series of TV interviews Michael Cohen’s lawyer David Schwartz may have destroyed Cohen’s claims that the Stormy Daniels nondisclosure agreement (NDA) is a valid contract.
If you’re in a war and you have strong adversaries who have surrounded you, it’s advisable to surrender so you can live to fight another day.
Donald Trump has just been surrounded by new legal problems that could be his undoing, but he has no intentions of surrendering. Instead, he’ll probably just deny everything and go to twitter to attack his opponents.
This is how to find out if Donald Trump and his lawyer Michael Cohen have been lying about the Stormy Daniels affair, the nondisclosure agreement, and the $130,000 hush money payoff: get them to testify under oath, with penalties of perjury.
Donald Trump’s personal lawyer Michael Cohen is finally getting a dose of his own medicine. Trump has always liked Cohen because he is super-aggressive and is known to try to intimidate people through threatened and actual lawsuits.And now, after allegedly calling Stormy Daniels‘ pornstar friend Alana Evans a liar, he is being threatened by Evans with a lawsuit against him, according to The Daily Beast. (On Monday, we reported that Daniels herself has filed a lawsuit against Cohen for defamation because “he called into question her claim that she had a sexual encounter with Trump.”)
Stormy Daniels' lawyer Michael Avenatti released to the press an email which proves that Cohen attempted to stop Daniels from hiring Avenatti as her lawyer.
When you think of the Wall Street Journal you don’t think of tabloid journalism but in a blockbuster article today the capitalist newspaper published the results of porn star Stormy Daniels’ lie detector test about her sexual relationship with President Donald Trump. According to the Journal, a polygraph exam which was taken by Ms. Daniels in 2011 said that she was telling the truth about her alleged affair with Donald Trump in 2006 and 2007.
Stormy Daniels (a/k/a Stephanie Clifford) has a very well-publicized and ongoing legal battle with multi-billionaire President of the United States Donald J. Trump.
To represent her, Daniels has hired one of the most high-profile (and expensive) lawyers in the United States, Michael Avenatti. She has been making money from her newfound fame as a Trump accuser, but that might not be enough to pay for all of her extensive legal bills.
It may be due to good luck or good planning (or both) but one thing for sure is that all the controversy surrounding Stormy Daniels and her affair with Donald Trump is making the porn star a lot of money.
Yes, Michael Cohen actually used his email address in the Trump Organization itself to make all the legal and payoff arrangements with Stormy Daniels (whose real name is Stephanie Clifford). At least that’s what happened according to a new report from NBC News.
Donald Trump’s Stormy Daniels problem just won’t go away. Even though he and his attorneys have tried to silence the former porn star, she just keeps talking about her famous affair with the president.
Trump's personal attorney asked Putin for help with a Trump business deal during the 2016 campaign, as evidence of a Trump/Putin connection is becoming concrete.
Trump's lawyer, Michael Cohen, has announced that he will not be participating in the congressional investigation of the Russia scandal, which means that the Trump team is pulling out all of the stops to deny investigators the information that they are looking for.
The Russia scandal is getting very personal for Trump as Congressional investigators are demanding that his lawyer Michael Cohen turn over documents related to the Russia investigation.
According to Cohen, Trump is "smart and decisive" and a "swift-acting individual" who listens to people and will eventually tell us what the hell he thinks he is doing.
"Understand that by the very definition, you can’t rape your spouse. It is true. You cannot rape your spouse. And there’s very clear case law”
Trump lawyer and surrogate Michael Cohen refused to believe that Trump is losing the presidential election, so CNN's Brianna Keilar dropped some stone cold reality on him.
Trump appears more than willing to embrace the idea that Clinton doctored tapes to make him the star of a terrorist recruitment video
