Michael Cohen Rips Trump Border Policy in Letter Quitting RNC Post: Kids Aren’t ‘Bargaining Chips’

Michael Cohen has resigned from his position on the Republican National Committee’s Finance Committee amid his ongoing legal troubles and investigations into his business affairs. ABC News has received a copy of the email that the RNC’s now-former deputy finance chair and former personal attorney to Donald Trump sent to RNC chairwoman Ronna McDaniel.
“This important role requires the full time attention and dedication of each member. Given the ongoing Mueller and SDNY investigations, that simply is impossible for me to do.”
Recent indications suggest that Cohen is thinking about cooperating with the federal agents conducting a criminal investigation into his alleged bank fraud and dubious business dealings. These charges stem from his hush money payments to Stormy Daniels, as well as his lobbying work where he appeared to sell access to the president. Despite the controversy that swirled around Cohen for the last few months, multiple RNC Continue reading "Michael Cohen Rips Trump Border Policy in Letter Quitting RNC Post: Kids Aren’t ‘Bargaining Chips’"

Random New Yorker Calls Out Michael Cohen on Camera: ‘Hey! It’s That Guy That’s Going to Jail’

President Donald Trump‘s former lawyer, Michael Cohen hasn’t had the best of weeks recently. Just today, it was reported that federal authorities puzzled together pages and pages of documents he thought he had shredded and accessed his encrypted messages. His attempt to get a gag order on Stormy Daniels‘ lawyer Michael Avenatti did not go as planned. Cohen also parted ways with his lawyers recently and seemed poised to cooperate with the feds and Trump parted ways with him, telling reporters earlier today that Cohen was no longer his lawyer. Trump also implied that they haven’t even talked recently. “I haven’t spoken to Michael in a long time,” Trump said. “No, he’s not my lawyer anymore, but I always liked Michael. And he’s a good person,” Yet, that didn’t stop Cohen from walking outside on the streets of New York on Friday where he was, not surprisingly, swarmed Continue reading "Random New Yorker Calls Out Michael Cohen on Camera: ‘Hey!

Judge Denies Michael Cohen’s Request For Gag Order on Michael Avenatti

If you’re a fan of Michael Avenatti‘s umpteen-zillion cable news appearances per day, you’re in luck. A Federal judge in California has denied a request filed by Michael Cohen — President Donald Trump‘s lawyer — for a gag order to be placed on Avenatti, the attorney for Stormy Daniels. Avenatti, naturally, took a victory lap on Twitter. “Here is the Order the Court just issued denying Mr. Cohen emergency relief as it relates to trying to gag me,” the lawyer wrote — tweeting a screencap of the ruling. “The Court found he and Mr. Blakely failed to show any need for immediate relief. #Basta”

Cohen Reportedly Sending ‘Smoke Signal’ To Trump With Talk That He May Flip: ‘I Need Help’

Wednesday morning’s top story has undoubtedly been the report from ABC’s George Stephanopoulos that Michael Cohen — President Donald Trump‘s lawyer — is parting ways with his attorneys and is on the verge of cooperating with Federal authorities. The ABC report has been corroborated by The New York Times and CNN. But could this all be a ruse on the part of Cohen just to get the president to come to his rescue? According to Vanity Fair’s Gabriel Sherman, a Cohen ally claims that the lawyer is signaling to Trump that he needs his aid. “Person close to Cohen says he hasn’t flipped yet, ‘he’s sending up a smoke signal to Trump: I need help.'” Trump, of course, has Continue reading "Cohen Reportedly Sending ‘Smoke Signal’ To Trump With Talk That He May Flip: ‘I Need Help’"

The View Reacts Live to Bombshell Report That Michael Cohen May Flip: Trump is Like a ‘Trapped Animal’ Now

Wednesday morning, ABC’s George Stephanopoulos broke the stunning news that President Donald Trump‘s lawyer, Michael Cohen, is likely getting ready to flip, and cooperate with Federal authorities — a development that Stephanopoulos wrote “will likely hit the White House, family members, staffers and counsels hard.” Moments after Stephanopoulos’ story was published, Whoopi Goldberg shared the news with her View colleagues and the show’s audience (which let up a cheer). They analyzed the bombshell development in real time. “Cohen once said he’d jump out of a building or take a bullet for Trump,” said Sara Haines. “So this is a big switch.” “We should watch Trump right now,” Joy Behar added. “Because when he’s cornered, he gets vicious. So I’m concerned about how he is going to respond. Like a trapped rat, you know?” Behar added, “It’s a trapped animal. He responds like that. It’s Continue reading "The View Reacts Live to Bombshell Report That Michael Cohen May Flip: Trump is Like a ‘Trapped Animal’ Now"
