WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Michael Cohen, the former “fixer” and personal lawyer of U.S. President Donald Trump, will testify on Wednesday that Trump knew ahead of time about a leak of emails that would hurt his Democratic rival Hillary Clinton in the 2016 presidential election.
MSNBC host Joe Scarborough said on his show Wednesday that Donald Trump and his allies have been lying for two years to cover up Donald Trump Jr.’s crimes related to Russia.
The comments came after the “Morning Joe” panel discussed the shocking new revelation that Trump had another private meeting with Russian president Vladimir Putin at the G20 summit in Buenos Aires in November. Although everyone knew about his private meeting with Putin in Helsinki, the Buenos Aires meeting had not been previously disclosed. This shows that Trump’s deception about his Russia contacts is even greater than we realized.
Panic and chaos are hitting the Trump administration this morning, after longtime Trump friend and campaign aide Roger Stone was arrested during an early-morning FBI raid on his home. New reporting shows that former Trump adviser Steve Bannon may also be implicated in the charges against Stone.
According to the Washington Post, President Donald Trump is now “a major subject of interest” in the investigation of special counsel Robert Mueller.
As a “subject of the investigation,” Trump now has his own legal code name: “Individual 1.”
Special counsel Robert Mueller is looking into a series of late-night telephone calls from then-candidate Donald Trump to his confidant Roger Stone during the 2016 presidential campaign, the Washington Post is reporting.
WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, “has been charged,” according to a court filing that inadvertently mentioned his name. The court filing was with respect to a different case, unrelated to Assange.
Yesterday the Wall Street Journal published a long article summarizing Robert Mueller’s investigation into Roger Stone and other conservative activists who have been closely associated with Stone through the years. The focus seems to be their interactions with WikiLeaks and its founder Julian Assange.
Donald Trump operates like a typical mob boss, in charge of an organized crime family. As events of the past week have shown, he surrounds himself with sleazy characters who live in the shadows and commit many different types of crimes, most of which they are never held accountable for.
Rudy Giuliani has hit back against claims from former White House aide Omarosa Manigault Newman that President Trump knew about the hacked Democratic emails obtained by WikiLeaks before they were released during the 2016 election campaign. Giuliani appeared late Tuesday on CNN’s “Cuomo Prime Time.”
In April the Democratic National Committee (DNC) filed a novel lawsuit against WikiLeaks alleging they were part of a global conspiracy to influence the 2016 U.S. presidential election. It is widely believed that by publishing hacked emails from the DNC and from Hillary Clinton’s campaign WikiLeaks hurt Clinton and helped Trump become president.
Former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper for the first time has revealed that U.S. intelligence agencies had identified a suspect who served as the “cut-out” for Russian intelligence to funnel thousands of hacked Democratic National Committee (DNC) emails and documents to WikiLeaks.
The Wikileaks/Trump/Russia conspiracy was so intent on fooling US voters that Wikileaks asked Trump Jr. if they could publish one of Trump's tax returns so that their attacks on Hillary Clinton would have more impact.
The Russia gun has a lot more smoke on it as there is proof of Trump campaign collusion in Donald Trump Jr.'s messages to Wikileaks.
On Wednesday, FBI Director Comey called WikiLeaks "intelligence porn" that is pushed out without consideration for innocent civilians' lives and done to damage the United States of America.
"In which Sean Hannity looks for a way to blame Americans for an attack on America that was carried out by Russia. "
Maddow says there is growing evidence that Moscow's work didn't end on Nov. 8, 2016 – that was only the opening act.
During an interview on MSNBC, Sen. Chris Murphy (D-CT) suggested that Wikileaks and Russia are working to together to protect President Trump.
As more information comes out, Trump is becoming increasingly alone in his politically suicidal mission to defend Russia instead of the U.S.
In the continuing saga surrounding the overarching question of whether or not Donald J. Trump is really an American, or a Russian operative, it is getting a little clearer that defector Donald is intricately aligned with Russia and its interests; he has shown absolutely no allegiance to America, its people, or its security interests.
