    President Trump's personal attorney, Michael Cohen, confirmed to NBC News that he has received requests for information from the Senate and House intelligence committees as part of their probes into Russian interference in the U.S. election, but says he won't comply. "I declined the invitation to participate," said Cohen, "as the request was poorly phrased, overly broad and not capable of being answered." A congressional aide said the request letters, first reported by ABC News, were the same ones sent to former Trump aides Carter Page, Roger Stone, Paul Manafort, Mike Flynn and others. Those letters sought information about Russian...

    George Webb YouTube Channel ^ | May 24, 2017 | George Webb Citizen Reporter
    I normally don't post threads of a Youtube but this one is quite compelling. Brief Synopsis According to an IT Staffer and other sources, Democrats plan to use 'their' Michael Cohen story of how he traveled to Prague and how he hired Guccifer to hack Hillary's personal illegal offsite server. Michael Cohen, the personal attorney for Donald Trump when he was a candidate, has already been cleared of traveling to Prague. The democrats found the wrong Michael Cohen, but that won't stop them from carrying this into the Kangaroo Court now being set up for President Trump. Sidenote: George is...
  • Trump’s lawyer launches legal action against BuzzFeed for publishing ‘completely fabricated’ dossier

    The Washington Times ^ | April 25, 2017 | Rowan Scarborough
    Michael D. Cohen, President Trump’s personal attorney, says he has instructed his own attorney to investigate legal action against BuzzFeed, which posted an opposition research “dossier” that accused Mr. Cohen without proof of a conspiracy with Russian agents. Mr. Cohen told The Washington Times that he also is considering a lawsuit against former British spy Christopher Steele, who wrote the gossipy 35-page dossier that the liberal news website posted on Jan. 10. Mr. Steele was paid by a Hillary Clinton supporter, via the Democratic Party-linked firm Fusion GPS, to gather dirt on candidate Trump last summer and fall. GPS circulated...
  • Professor Stephen Cohen: Not One Piece of Factual Evidence That Russia 'Hacked the Election

    04/13/2017 7:51:09 AM PDT · by ChicagoConservative27 · 18 replies
    Stephen F. Cohen, professor emeritus of Russian studies at New York University and Princeton, spoke Thursday evening with Fox News' Tucker Carlson about the latest shoes to drop in the investigations into the Trump campaign's possible ties to Russia. The Wall Street Journal reported late Thursday that Michael Flynn, President Trump's former national security advisor, has told the FBI and congressional investigators that he is willing to be interviewed in exchange for a grant of immunity from prosecution -- not a particularly good sign for the Trump White House. Cohen, one of the country's foremost experts on Russia, has been...
  • Last December, the Washington Post claimed: Trump must dump Michael Flynn

    In the 1964 movie “Dr. Strangelove,” the part of Brig. Gen. Jack D. Ripper, described in Wikipedia as a “paranoid ultra-nationalist,” was played by Sterling Hayden. If the movie was made today, the role would go to Michael T. Flynn — on the face of it as much a paranoid ultra-nationalist as the fictitious Ripper. Flynn, though, is no fictional creation. He’s Donald Trump’s choice for national security adviser. Flynn, a former director of the Defense Intelligence Agency and a retired lieutenant general, is already known for his bizarre tweets, not to mention his bizarre management style. (He was ousted...

    Chicago Tribune ^ | January 19, 2017 | By Rosemary Regina Sobol
    A badly burned body found on the floor of a River North parking garage early Tuesday has been identified as a 60-year-old real estate attorney, officials said. Louis S. Cohen, 60, was of the 200 block of Ivy Lane in Highland Park, according to the Cook County medical examiner’s office. An autopsy Wednesday was pending and did not determine a cause and manner for Cohen’s death, the office said. Just before 6 a.m. Tuesday, police and fire crews responded to a fire in the 11th floor of a parking garage in the 300 block of North LaSalle Drive and found...

    With eyebrows suspiciously furrowed, Tucker Carlson sat down tonight with NYU Professor of Russian Studies and contributor to The Nation, Stephen Cohen, to discuss the 35 page #FakeNews dossier which has gripped the nation with nightmares of golden showers and other perverted conduct which was to be used by Russia to keep Trump on a leash. The left leaning Cohen, who holds a Ph.D. in government and Russian studies from Columbia, taught at Princeton for 30 years before moving to NYU. He has spent a lifetime deeply immersed in US-Russian relations, having been both a long standing friend of Mikhail...

    A new report released today features both the FBI seeking to launch a surveillance operation against an active US presidential campaign, and the ultra-rare case of the FISA courts actually turning down an FBI request to conduct surveillance against somebody. The report, originating at the Guardian, claims that the FBI had sought broad surveillance powers over four high-ranking members of President-elect Donald Trump’s campaign during the election, claiming them to have had contact with Russian officials. The FISA court turned the request down, telling investigators they needed to narrow the request. ADVERTISING Though the four are not directly named in...

    Donald Trump is a one-man basket of deplorables. He is a braggart and a liar. He is a bully and a demagogue. He is an ignoramus and a deadbeat, a chiseler and either a sincere racist or an insincere one, and his love for himself is matched only by my loathing of him. He is about to be president of the United States. A constitutional coup may be in the offing. Since winning the election, Trump has not moderated his behavior. He still behaves like a brat — his childish tweet zinging Arnold Schwarzenegger for failing to get Trumpian ratings...

    I don't know whether Gen. Wesley Clark is qualified to be president, but Peter J. Boyer's profile in this week's New Yorker—which paints him as scarily unqualified—is an unfair portrait as well as a misleading, occasionally inaccurate précis of the 1999 Kosovo war and Clark's role in commanding it.Boyer relies heavily on some of Clark's fellow retired Army generals who clearly despise him. The gist of their critique, as Boyer summarizes, is that Clark, while a brilliant analyst, "had a certainty about the rightness of his views which led to conflicts with his colleagues and, sometimes, his superiors." I have...

    Leonard Cohen, the Canadian poet and novelist who became a singular international presence as a singer-songwriter, has died. He was 82. A statement on his official Facebook page read, “It is with profound sorrow we report that legendary poet, songwriter and artist, Leonard Cohen has passed away. We have lost one of music’s most revered and prolific visionaries. A memorial will take place in Los Angeles at a later date. The family requests privacy during their time of grief.” Only last month, Cohen released his final album, “You Want It Darker,” a deeply introspective work that focused thematically on mortality....

    Hannah Cohen, a young disabled woman whose mother describes as “partially deaf, blind in one eye, paralyzed and easily confused,” was beaten by Transportation Security Agents (TSA) after her flight home. The young woman was then led from the Memphis International Airport, beaten, bloodied, bruised, and in handcuffs — and then booked into jail. Cohen was returning home to Chattanooga after receiving treatment for her brain tumor at St. Jude’s Hospital. In fact, Hannah Cohen was returning home after receiving her final treatment for the brain tumor, and this trip back from St. Jude’s just marked one of many, as...

    Coast Guard search-and-rescue crews are searching for two missing 14-year-old boys in the vicinity of Jupiter. Austin Stephanos (left) and Perry Cohen (right), both 14, were reported missing after not returning from a fishing trip on Friday off the coast of Jupiter, Florida. They were last seen at approximately 1:30 p.m after purchasing $110 worth of fuel. Officials received a report that the boys had disappeared at about 5 p.m. after they didn’t return to shore at the expected time. The Coast Guard had covered about 5,300-square nautical miles by Saturday morning. The Palm Bay Sheriff’s Office is also providing...

    JUPITER, Fla. —The family of one of the missing teen boaters told WPBF 25 Sunday afternoon that their overturned boat was found off Jacksonville. The fate of the teens is unknown. Perry Cohen and Austin Stephanos, both 14, were aboard a 19-foot white single-engine boat. The U.S. Coast Guard said the boat is being towed to Jacksonville.

    The desperate search for two missing Florida teens entered its sixth day on Thursday with no sign of the boys. Perry Cohen and Austin Stephanos, both 14, were last seen buying fuel for their boat near Jupiter, Florida, on Friday. That boat was found capsized on Sunday, about 67 miles off the coast of the Ponce de Leon Inlet. But the teens were nowhere in sight. The search has now expanded to the South Carolina coast, but officials are beginning to lose hope as the longest anyone has been know to survive in open water is five days.

    JUPITER — From Juno Beach to Tequesta, boys like Austin Stephanos and Perry Cohen congregate wherever they can get a pole in the water. They pepper the turquoise waves aboard boats. They talk incessantly about what’s biting: snook, kingfish, wahoo. These are pier rats, not mall rats — known for lounging and canoodling on a sand bar accessible only by water and within the gaze of the iconic sunburnt Jupiter Lighthouse. They are obsessed about the newest fishing lures rather than video games, music or sports. “They are more fish than boy,” said Marvin Steiding, a charter boat captain at...

    The boat belonging to two teenagers who went missing off the coast of Florida during a fishing trip last year was discovered off Bermuda nearly eight months after they vanished, authorities said Saturday. The Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission said the 19-foot single-engine boat that Austin Stephanos and Perry Cohen, both 14, sailed off the coast of Jupiter on July 24 was found by a Norwegian supply boat on March 18 while on the way to Norway. The vessel was discovered about 100 miles off the coast of Bermuda, or about 1,000 miles from where Stephanos and Cohen were last...
