    You might remember back in May 2018 when sketchy porn lawyer Michael Avenetti was releasing U.S. Treasury notifications on Michael Cohen received from an unknown source within the Treasury Department. You might also remember when New Yorker’s Ronan Farrow wrote a sympathetic article after talking to the leaking treasury official. As a result the Treasury Inspector General began an investigation. Today, a U.S. Treasury employee named Natalie Mayflower Sours-Edwards was arrested and charged with leaking to numerous reporters multiple financial reports about suspicious financial transactions related to: Paul Manafort, Richard Gates, Maria Butina, and others.

    The Donald Trump loyalist who famously said he'd take a bullet for the President is now willing to publicly fight his former boss. Michael Cohen, the President's former lawyer, is prepared to campaign against Trump and Republicans in the midterm elections and the 2020 presidential race, a Democrat with knowledge told CNN. Marking the latest escalation in Cohen's growing animosity towards Trump, the source said he is open to doing a range of things to try to help the Democratic Party, including stumping for candidates, giving speeches and helping raise money.

    Prosecutors for the southern district of New York are pushing back against an effort by The New York Times to unseal search warrants that authorized the raid against President Trump’s former personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, according to Bloomberg. The Times sent a letter this past week to U.S. District Judge William Pauley requesting documents related to the search of Cohen’s Park Avenue hotel room and Rockefeller Center office in April. Bloomberg reported that The Times requested that the search warrants, related affidavits and court orders be unsealed. Federal prosecutors replied with a letter dated Friday announcing they would oppose the...
  • Texas suspends Dallas notary who mishandled Stormy Daniels' hush-money deal with Trump

    Texas authorities have suspended a suburban Dallas notary for botching her role in Stormy Daniels’ agreement to stay silent about her alleged affair with President Donald Trump. The disciplinary action faults the Forney notary for not properly witnessing and documenting the porn star's’ signature on the agreement struck with Trump's personal attorney just days before the presidential election, according to records obtained Wednesday by The Dallas Morning News. But the Texas Secretary of State office said the notary’s sloppy work has no bearing on the legal validity of the hush-money deal, which is under intense scrutiny by U.S. prosecutors investigating...
  • Michael Cohen And Trump Did NOT Violate Campaign Finance Law – Despite Cohen's Guilty Plea

    08/31/2018 7:06:53 PM PDT · by Helicondelta · 32 replies ^ | 9/1/2018 | Hans A. von Spakovsky
    Despite the guilty plea he entered Aug. 21 to charges of campaign finance law violations, it appears that President Trump’s former lawyer, Michael Cohen, did not actually violate the Federal Election Campaign Act. It is hard to continue to have faith in the objectivity of the Justice Department in the face of what seems like politically driven prosecution decisions to throw the book at Cohen – and implicate President Trump in allegedly illegal conduct – while ignoring clear lawbreaking by the Clinton campaign. Many election law experts, including former commissioners on the Federal Election Commission (FEC), say his conduct, however...
  • Why Trump impeachment dreams are just a liberal fantasy

    Fox News ^ | August 31, 2018 | Marc Thiessen, The Washington Post
    Michael Cohen's decision to plead guilty for making hush-money payments on Donald Trump's behalf has raised the prospect that if Democrats take control of Congress, they might try to impeach the president over a matter completely unrelated to a perceived criminal conspiracy with Russia. Good luck with that: Even if Democrats win back both the House and Senate, there is zero chance a two-thirds majority of senators will convict President Trump for paying off an adult-film star. It would be the height of hypocrisy if Democrats tried to remove the president over allegations of illegality relating to extramarital affairs. During...

    The Washington Post reported on Sunday that Davis said in an interview that he is “no longer certain about claims he made to reporters on background and on the record in recent weeks about what Cohen knows about Trump’s awareness of the Russian efforts.” Davis told The Washington Post that he cannot confirm media reports that Cohen is prepared to tell special counsel Robert S. Mueller III that Trump had advance knowledge of the 2016 Trump Tower meeting –WaPo CNN reported in July that Cohen claimed to have witnessed Trump approving the meeting between Trump Jr. and Russian attorney Natalia...

    An attorney for Michael Cohen, President Trump’s former lawyer, is backing away from confident assertions he made that Cohen has information to share with investigators that shows Trump knew in 2016 of Russian efforts to undermine Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton. Lanny Davis, a spokesman and attorney for Cohen, said in an interview this weekend that he is no longer certain about claims he made to reporters on background and on the record in recent weeks about what Cohen knows about Trump’s awareness of the Russian efforts. Davis did not rule out that his claims were correct but expressed regret that...

    After a week that saw President Donald Trump's former campaign chairman convicted on eight counts of fraud and his former lawyer plead guilty to felony campaign finance charges, the president's job approval rating remains virtually unchanged, new polling from NBC News and The Wall Street Journal shows. But the stability in Trump's approval rating also comes as more than half of voters say he has not been honest and truthful regarding the ongoing investigation by special counsel Robert Mueller. And fewer than three-in-ten voters are convinced that Trump himself is not implicated in the wrongdoing of the six of his...

    What do you do when your party has no viable policies acceptable to voters and no candidate to credibly lead them? I wanted to find out, so I wandered over to the Café California, where Democrats never leave. I'm old enough that with a bit of padding and an ugly large hat, I could look like a Bella Abzug wannabe, and I sat in the middle of the room, turning my hearing aids up to full blast. I couldn't stare at the speakers and don't know most of them, so I can't give you their names, but this is what...
  • Steyer to launch $1M ad spot targeting Cohen allegations against Trump

    Democratic mega-donor Tom Steyer's campaign to impeach President Trump is set to drop its latest ad spot on Monday, this time warning the president could seek to pardon himself in the face of mounting legal pressure. The $1 million-plus ad spot, set to air nationwide on Monday, comes days after Trump's former longtime lawyer Michael Cohen admitted in court that he violated campaign finance laws at the president's behest by making hush-money payments to two women. "How much more does Congress need to see? Donald Trump has now been implicated in two felony crimes, and he's all but confessed to...

    Lanny Davis, the longtime Clinton confidant who is also the attorney for former Trump lawyer Michael Cohen, is on the payroll of a pro-Moscow Ukrainian oligarch with direct ties to Russian President Vladimir Putin. According to Foreign Agents Registration Act (FARA) records reviewed by Conservative Review, Davis is an active registered foreign agent for Ukrainian billionaire Dmytro Firtash. A review of his social media records shows that Davis has never tweeted about his Ukrainian client, seemingly preferring to advocate quietly for Firtash, who faces enormous legal issues in courtrooms across the world. Firtash’s ties to Putin have been exposed in...

    On 'The Jimmy Dore Show' Ron Placone, Stef Zamorano, and Jimmy Dore discuss an NBC News article which gleefully reported that the conviction of Paul Manafort for tax fraud was the first successful "public test" of Robert Mueller's investigation. "The problem with this is, you can't charge the sitting president with a crime, and Trump will never be impeached," Dore said. "Get that out of your head, that will never happen. Well, maybe if they found collusion, like if there was evidence of him being a Manchurian candidate to help Russia at the expense of the U.S., then maybe, maybe,...

    This is outstanding! CNN talks to some Trump Democrats in Pennsylvania and finds out they continue to support President Trump! In fact, they call the whole Cohen mess “a sideshow.” Another couple helpfully reminds CNN that the investigation was supposed to be about “Russian Collusion.” I’m sure CNN thought when they sent the reporter to Pennsylvania they would find everyone throwing Trump under the bus. But they didn’t! Don’t lose heart amidst all the Media-generated firestorm. There are many Americans who are not being swayed one bit by the shenanigans of the Leftists and the NeverTrumpers.

    Only the final descent of the Trump assassination squads to the supreme self-humiliation of the Michael Cohen-Stormy Daniels nothingburger could drag me from my sublime writing holiday to inflict myself on whatever readers there may be in August. Amid the hydrogen bomb of decrials of moral turpitude and perceived high crimes, there is no one else audible who sees the Cohen rollover as the supreme victory for the president that it is. The Mueller investigation that started out with such a trumpet-blast of portentous Wagnerian prophecy of impending revelations of treason, has fallen to the asininity of getting a sleazy...

    Rudy Giuliani said Thursday "the American people would revolt" if President Donald Trump was impeached. In an interview with Sky News, the president's lawyer claimed there was "no reason" for an impeachment and called Trump's former attorney, Michael Cohen, "a massive liar.” "You could only impeach [Trump] for political reasons, and the American people would revolt against that," the former mayor of New York City told Sky News. Cohen pleaded guilty to paying hush money to a porn actress and a Playboy model at the request of a "candidate" — whom Cohen's lawyer, Lanny Davis, said was Trump — in...

    Dan Rather warned Wednesday night that if you think Tuesday was a shock with the Cohen guilty plea and Manafort's conviction, then "stay tuned." The former news anchor said other things Mueller is working on will "make yesterday pale by comparison." "Always keeping in mind that Mueller knows so much more than he has shown," Rather said in an interview with CNN's Don Lemon. "If you think [Cohen guilty plea, Manafort conviction] was a shock to our democratic system, just stay tuned. Because the other things Mueller is working on, and sooner or later we'll find out what they are,...
