Michael Cohen now says he won’t testify before Congress

` Because as Buzzfeed puts it, uh, apparently the threats from Trump and his legal team have just gotten to be a little much.  Buzzfeed News reports that Cohen was originally slated to testify before Congress on 7 February, but now, has removed himself from that particular equation. Multiple outlets have also floated the notion that Cohen may not have much of a choice, considering, he's under investigation and by federal law he may be mandated to testify.  The newly minted House Intelligence Committee, indeed, may very well force him to do so. The following statement was released by Cohen 's legal counsel. Due to ongoing threats against his family from President Trump and Mr. Giuliani, as recently as this weekend, as well as Mr. Cohen's continued cooperation with ongoing investigations...

Michael Cohen sits for interview with ABC News

Donald Trump 's former lawyer has spoken, and, in a very eye-catching interview with ABC News.  In the interview, ehum, it appears largely that Michael Cohen is prepared to cooperate with Robert Mueller on a much larger scale than ever before. My wife, my daughter, and my son have my first loyalty and always will," Cohen said. "I put family and country first."  Cohen reportedly spoke in an off-camera interview over the weekend. It is unclear exactly what he is ready to tell federal authorities in the United States.

Trump claims Rudy “incorrectly” spoke on Stormy Daniels payment

By incorrectly,   we're certain that means that Trump thinks  Rudy spoke  off topic of the prepared   deception from inside the White House.   This week,   Rudy Guiliani came forth and revealed that Trump  indeed knew of the payment.   Knew of it so much, that, he even went back and repaid Michael Cohen for making the payment to begin with. No shit,  this is real folks.   Trump, per reports, has now come out swinging against Rudy claiming that he "spoke incorrectly" and isn't sure what he was talking about.   The new statement, released Saturday, now reads like the back of a prepared lie  prepared by none other than Sarah Huckabee Sanders herself. "There is no campaign violation," says Giuliani in his statement. “The payment was made to resolve a personal and false allegation in orde...

Robert Mueller to subpoena the President: Report

Robert Mueller 's Russian investigation is getting deeper by the day. Almost daily,   the investigation takes turns deeper than the Grand Canyon, and, nobody quite ever expects them. This time, per reports,  it has emerged that Mueller ("for some time") has been exploring the idea of subpoenaing the President. Reuters reported on Monday that the meeting happened in March, ehum, just two weeks before Mr. Dowd stepped down as a chief member of Trump 's private legal team. Now,  the news appears to paint an even darker picture for the bewildering President who has a controversial relationship with the truth. During the reported meeting, Mr. Dowd told federal investigators ("quote")  that "You are messing with the work of the President of the United States"  effectively those were his la...

Michael Cohen drops two major lawsuits

Those being, ehum, the cases against Fusion GPS and Buzzfeed News.  The lawsuits were originally brought on after the publication and widespread revelations made in the dossier  discovered and compiled by Christopher Steele.  In the decision to   stop the lawsuits, Cohen's lawyers had this to say about the  shocking decision. . "We believe the defendants defamed my client, and vindicating Mr. Cohen’s rights was—and still remains—important. But given the events that have unfolded, and the time, attention, and resources needed to prosecute these matters, we have dismissed the matters, despite their merits."  reads a statement from Cohen 's = lawyers.

NYT: Prepare yourselves, Trump is preparing to fire Robert Mueller

A new editorial out by the New York times, ehum, has the entire world talking. In it,  one of  the papers' media writers takes to the digital stage, to ehum,  announce that lawmakers far-and-wide need to prepare for the upcoming: the firing of Robert Mueller. The Times claims that it is no longer a question of if, but rather, when Trump will attempt to lay the gavel and fire Mueller -- something that would certainly ignite a constitutional crisis and almost immediately lead to his impeachment as President. The piece, entitled, The President is Not Above The Law,  takes direct aim at the fact that Trump has been targeting both Mueller and Rod Rosenstein as of late.  Rosenstein, ehum, apparently was one of the few who authorized the raids on Michael Cohen 's residences and places of la...

Trump lawyers cop to report of Trump Tower in Moscow

WASHINGTON -- Trump 's lawyers have now done the unthinkable, uh, reportedly copping to a report that originally claimed that the Trump team tried to build a Trump Tower in Moscow DURING the Presidential campaign (and Trump knew about it).  According to the original report, also reported in our papers,  Trump 'signed a letter of intent" on behalf of his organization, although, his lawyer claims the deal never went through.

Cohen, claims that the deal ended be...
