  • Michael Cohen wishes fans a happy Fourth of July as critics rip restaurant romp

    Recently sprung jailbird Michael Cohen wished his Twitter followers a happy July 4th — just hours after being splashed on The Post’s front page, dining al fresco at a posh Upper East Side restaurant. “Wishing everyone a #safe and #happy #4thofJuly2020,” President Trump’s former lawyer posted in a 7:28 a.m tweet, which featured an image of an American flag and fireworks. Cohen, 53, was released from the Federal Correctional Institution at Otisville, New York on May 20 over COVID-19 concerns. He’s supposed to be serving three-year sentence for his role in paying hush money to porn star Stormy Daniels and...

    Unredacted portions of former Special Counsel Robert Mueller's report on his Russia investigation were released Friday as a result of a lawsuit from BuzzFeed News and a nonprofit research group. The newly disclosed portions reveal claims that Roger Stone notified President Trump and his campaign advisers in advance of a looming document dump that was potentially damaging to Hillary Clinton. According to the documents, Trump's former attorney Michael Cohen told federal investigators he overheard a July 2016 phone call between Stone and then-candidate Trump in which Stone claimed to have spoken with WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange. Stone claimed the website...

    Former FOX News reporter put up a series of tweets this weekend on the ongoing Obama spygate scandal. According to Housley the scandal involves corrupt officials from both parties and he suggests that the case is moving swiftly and that these three men are in the crosshairs: H. R. McMaster, Rod Rosenstien and deceased US Senator and Trump-hater John McCain. Adam Housley: The corruption runs deep and through both parties and it ain’t gonna look good when it’s all said and done. Adam Housley: It ain’t about Republican and Democrat anymore…it really isn’t. People were given the opportunity to do...

He will be released on furlough with the expectation that he will transition to home confinement to serve the remainder of his sentence at home, the person said. Cohen, 53,...

    WASHINGTON — A key former F.B.I. official cast doubt on the Justice Department’s case for dropping a criminal charge against President Trump’s former national security adviser Michael T. Flynn during an interview with investigators last week, according to people familiar with the investigation. Department officials reviewing the Flynn case interviewed Bill Priestap, the former head of F.B.I. counterintelligence, two days before making their extraordinary request to drop the case to Judge Emmet G. Sullivan. They did not tell Judge Sullivan about Mr. Priestap’s interview. A Justice Department official said that they were in the process of writing up a report...

    An FBI agent's newly released testimony undercuts top Justice Department official Bruce Ohr's denial of a conflict of interest between his Trump-Russia efforts and his wife’s work for Fusion GPS, producer of the discredited Steele dossier. The agent, Michael Gaeta, told congressional probers that Ohr had pressed him to make sure the FBI was “doing something” with the dossier. According to Gaeta, Ohr pushed Steele's collection of memos alleging nefarious ties between the Trump campaign and Russia in part because Ohr’s wife Nellie worked for the same company that had hired ex-British spy Christopher Steele. Gaeta's testimony was released last...

    This post shows the illegal use of surveillance technology and how the same methods can be used with contact tracing. There is a pattern of civil rights abuse by the deep state, Democrats and a complicit media. The word 'pattern' is used in a very precise manner. It is a template that is to be used over and over again. It is important to recognize this pattern because it will be used again. The pattern was used in the failed coup attempt against President and to disenfranchise 63,000,000 voters. Let that sink in. Hopefully it will be enough for you...

    Now that the Justice Department belatedly has admitted that the entire investigation into former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn was a sham, it is time to turn to the bigger picture.On August 2, 2017, acting attorney general (for all matters involving the Trump-Russia collusion hoax) Rod Rosenstein signed a memorandum expanding the jurisdiction of special counsel Robert Mueller’s probe. Almost a year after Mueller released his report, the expanded jurisdiction memorandum remained a secret until Wednesday. A third jurisdiction memorandum remains secret.It is unclear why the Department of Justice says it kept this memo secret until now or why it...

    Rosie O’Donnell has struck up an unlikely friendship with President Trump’s incarcerated former personal attorney Michael Cohen. Outspoken Trump loather and archnemesis O’Donnell contacted Cohen in writing after he was sent to the medium-security federal prison in Otisville, NY, last year, according to a source. Comedian and former host of “The View” O’Donnell is even said to have visited Cohen — who is again shopping a tell-all book about his years working for Trump — at the upstate facility. The source said, “Rosie and Michael have bonded over Trump, and she’s helping him with his book, which is now highly...

    O'Donnell wrote a letter to Cohen expressing her appreciation that he finally pushed back at his former boss. . . . 'No matter how long it took you, you’ll be known and respected for that as much as any horror you’ve committed through him.' Cohen was 'so moved by the letter that he started crying.' In a letter written back to O'Donnell, Cohen confessed it 'had been bothering him all this time, because he couldn’t believe all the things he did to everyone—including me—at Trump’s direction was now being done to him.' The two exchanged more letters before O'Donnell decided...

    The federal Bureau of Prisons has notified Michael Cohen, President Donald Trump's former personal attorney, that he will be released early from prison due to the coronavirus pandemic, according to people familiar with the matter and his lawyer. Cohen is serving a three-year sentence at the federal prison camp in Otisville, NY, where 14 inmates and seven staff members at the complex have tested positive for the virus. Cohen was scheduled for release in November 2021, but he will be allowed to serve the remainder of his sentence from home confinement, the people said. He will have to undergo a...

    Disgraced lawyer Michael Cohen will be released from an upstate New York prison over coronavirus concerns, sources said. President Trump’s former fixer must first complete a 14-day quaratine period at Otisville Federal prison that begins Friday, before he’s let out on home confinement, according to sources. Cohen, in March, had unsuccessfully argued he should be released from prison because of the pandemic.

    One of the sources said Cohen was placed in solitary after another inmate complained about his internet use. “It is my understanding that a verbal dispute over phone use prompted a temporary placement to SHU pending an investigation. I do not, however, know who prompted the altercation, or if the action taken was factually/regulatory appropriate,” Cohen’s lawyer, Roger Adler, said in an email to Reuters. A former representative for Cohen, Lanny Davis, declined to comment.

    A federal judge on Tuesday rejected a plea from Michael Cohen for a sentence reduction as the coronavirus spreads across New York, where President Trump’s former lawyer is serving a three-year prison term. In a two-page order, U.S. District Court Judge William Pauley appeared unmoved by Cohen’s latest sentence-reduction request and largely deferred to federal prosecutors who said the former fixer was “manifestly ineligible” for compassionate release. “Ten months into his prison term, it’s time that Cohen accept the consequences of his criminal convictions for serious crimes that had far reaching institutional harms,” Pauley wrote. Cohen has been incarcerated since...

    VIDEO During a recent House Judiciary Hearing on FBI Oversight, FBI Director Christopher Wray, in his first Congressional appearance since the release of the Horowitz Report in December, proved himself to be just a slick dodgeball coverup artist seeking to avoid getting to the root of the corruption in his agency in the wake of revelations of the biggest scandals in its history. Wray's standard answers sound like pre-programmed ways to avoid addressing the corruption answers as you can see in his standard replies of "I find it unacceptable," or "I refer to the IG report," or "I can't...
