    Michael Cohen, a former personal attorney for Donald Trump, said Saturday on MSNBC’s “Velshi” that if the former president wins the election, “people will start flying out of windows” or end up in prisons like in Russia. Cohen said, “State-sponsored news just like what you have in Russia and their station which is called Pravda and means truth which is ironic, right? All of this goes away under a Donald Trump administration. Why? Because he doesn’t want to hear anything negative being said about him. The fact that you have this television show, the fact that you have the ability...

    Last Thursday, in a courtroom in Manhattan that voted against him 88-12% in 2020, a jury, heavily persuaded by a judge, who contributed to Joe Biden in 2020, convicted President Donald Trump on 34 counts of falsification of business records. The case concerns payments that were made to former Trump attorney Michael Cohen in 2017. Cohen claimed the payments were reimbursement for a $130,000 payment to adult film star Stormy Daniels to ensure her silence about an alleged sexual encounter with President Trump.

    EXCLUSIVE: House Majority Whip Tom Emmer is demanding that the Justice Department "take immediate action" to prosecute ex-Trump attorney Michael Cohen for making false statements and admitting to stealing during the unprecedented criminal trial of former President Trump. Fox News Digital exclusively obtained a letter Emmer, R-Minn., sent to Attorney General Merrick Garland Wednesday, urging the DOJ "take immediate action" on the multiple criminal referrals from congressional committees related to alleged lies Cohen has told Congress. Emmer also demanded information on top Manhattan prosecutor Matthew Colangelo, who worked as a senior Justice Department official in the Biden administration . ...and...
  • The Prosecution's Story About Trump Featured Several Logically Impossible Claims

    Whatever Trump did after the 2016 presidential election, it seems safe to say that it did not retroactively promote his victory.Last January, Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg summed up his case against Donald Trump this way: "We allege falsification of business records to the end of keeping information away from the electorate. It's an election interference case." That gloss made no sense, because the records at the center of the case—11 invoices, 11 checks, and 12 ledger entries that allegedly were aimed at disguising a hush-money reimbursement as payment for legal services—were produced after the 2016 presidential election. At that...

    (CNN) - The Manhattan District Attorney’s Office made a significant tactical error announcing they were resting their case after calling Michael Cohen as their final witness in the Donald Trump hush money trial. But it’s not because Cohen, a convicted felon and disbarred lawyer, was a bad witness. He actually did pretty well in responding to the prosecution’s warm-up when confronted with his prior bad acts, convictions and bias toward the former president, staying steady on the stand and not losing his cool. But Cohen lost his footing during cross-examination Thursday, where it appeared he omitted important information when recounting...
  • Donald Trump trial updates: Furious Michael Cohen says he stole $60,000 from Trump as 'self-help' because ex-president slashed his bonus - in bombshell testimony blowing the prosecution case wide open

    The prosecution’s 'star witness' Michael Cohen is back on the stand for a third day, as the court waits with bated breath to find out whether former President Donald Trump could testify himself. He finally admitted under oath that he stole $60,000 from the Trump Organization by ‘grossing up’ payments for tax. Donald Trump was seen shaking his head as his former ‘fixer’ made the revelation, confirming he’s a common thief. Cohen also dramatically revealed that he dealt with an apparent photo ‘extortion’ blackmail attempt involving the ex-president’s daughter, Tiffany. Cohen admits he was handling Tiffany Trump ‘blackmail’ Blanche continues...

    Joe Biden is a despicable human being and a flaming racist. He was a "dear" friend of Robert Byrd, a former Exalted Cyclops of the KKK. Biden considers him a mentor. It shows. At what should have been a happy day for the graduates of Morehead University, Biden raised a dark cloud over the ceremony as he stoked the fires of racial hatred for his own personal gain. Instead of focusing on the young people, Biden once again made the day about himself invoking his deceased family members. He bragged about ignoring the Supreme Court rulings. Biden did what he...
  • UNDER DURESS: Prosecutors Allegedly Threatened Convicted Perjurer Michael Cohen to ‘Flip on Trump or We INDICT YOUR WIFE!’

    Convicted perjurer Michael Cohen testified under oath that he was coerced into pleading guilty by threats from prosecutors aimed not just at him but at his family. During a tense courtroom exchange, it became evident that the deep state’s tactics might have stooped to new lows in their relentless pursuit against Trump. Thursday’s session in the ongoing trial saw Trump’s legal team cross-examine Cohen, following two days where the prosecution grilled him in an effort to link the former president to alleged criminal activities. According to reports from The Gateway Pundit’s Paul Ingrassia, who is closely monitoring the proceedings, Cohen’s...

    Jury members in Donald Trump's criminal hush money trial are being "treated like chumps," says legal analyst Jonathan Turley. He also believes star prosecution witness Michael Cohen suffered a "dramatic implosion" on Thursday. Turley, who is a frequent Fox commentator and professor at George Washington University Law School, expresses extreme doubt in a blog that the prosecution has any basis for conviction and poses the question of whether the jury "is realizing that they are being played by the prosecution." He also says: "With the dramatic implosion of Michael Cohen on the stand on Thursday with the exposure of another...

    Not since Stormy stumbled out of a Nevada hotel room has anyone been so underwhelmed. For four weeks, botoxed cable news hosts have been consumed, a presidential election has been hamstrung and those eating lunch have been revolted by sloppy, salacious testimony flowing like raw sewage out of a courthouse in lower Manhattan. It's here that the first former US president in history has been put on trial for the crime of… well, we still don't know exactly.

    Political commentator Alyssa Farah Griffin said Thursday on CNN’s coverage of former President Donald Trump’s business record trial that witness Michael Cohen after the defense lawyer Todd Blanche’s cross-examination. Anchor Jake Tapper said, “Michael Cohen says he never sought a job at the white house. Bryan Lanza here who worked on the 2016 campaign, says, that’s not true. He recalls Michael Cohen wanting to be White House council. We have some journalists on our panel here saying that’s not true. They were recalling Michael Cohen saying he was going to join the White House. He was very excited to do...

    Michael Cohen and Rosie O’Donnell have reportedly struck an unlikely friendship, with the comedian texting Cohen “I love you” as he appeared as a witness in the criminal case against his ex-boss, former President Donald Trump. O’Donnell texted Cohen on Monday morning before he took the stand in a Manhattan courtroom, writing, “breathe — relax — tell the truth — u got this — i love u,” according to a report by DNyuz. An hour later, O’Donnell reportedly texted Cohen, “Ur doing great,” to which the former Trump attorney replied, “Thank you and truly love you.”

    On Monday, conservative attorney, legal scholar, and commentator Jonathan Turley weighed in on the day's testimony by Michael Cohen in the ongoing New York trial of former President Donald Trump. Mr. Turley's comments about Cohen were, to say the least, sharply pointed.Michael Cohen apparently wants a reality show but, if his testimony Monday is any indication, reality is about to sink in for not just Cohen but the prosecutors and the court.In stoking interest in his own appearance, the former Trump counsel promised the public that they should be “prepared to be surprised.” Thus far, however, Cohen has offered nothing...

    Michael Cohen testified Monday he secretly recorded Donald Trump in the lead-up to the 2016 election, discussing plans to buy a Playboy model’s story about having an affair with the then-candidate. Cohen — who worked for Trump for more than a decade — told jurors in Manhattan Supreme Court that the Sept. 6, 2016, conversation, taped on the Voice Memos app on his iPhone, was the only time he surreptitiously recorded his former boss. “So, what do we got to pay for this? One-fifty?” Trump could allegedly be heard saying on the nearly three-minute recording played in court by Assistant...

    Michael Cohen will “fix your problems,” using the skills he learned working for “a notoriously bad man,” according to a promo sizzle reel for “The Fixer,” a reality-TV show concept he’s been shopping to studios. In the unintentionally hilarious promo video, which The Post obtained exclusively, Cohen stalks the streets of Manhattan in a moody ripoff of his old boss’s mega-hit “The Apprentice.” Clad in darks suits, the disgraced lawyer zips along Park Avenue on the Upper East Side during much of the narration, which is spliced between stock footage of cable-news reports on his scandals. “The little guy doesn’t...

    Michael Cohen, former President Trump’s onetime fixer-turned-foe, is expected to take the stand on Monday in Trump’s New York criminal trial, according to a source with knowledge of the matter. Billed as a star witness for the Manhattan district attorney’s office, Cohen’s testimony is expected to mark the culmination of prosecutors’ case in chief as it approaches its end. It could last multiple days. Cohen is expected to implicate his ex-boss as he testifies about a hush money deal with adult film actress Stormy Daniels that underpins Trump’s case. Many of prosecutors’ witnesses so far have conceded they had no...

    Conservative lawyer George Conway said former Trump aide Hope Hicks’ testimony at former President Trump’s hush money trial “absolutely” corroborates his ex-lawyer Michael Cohen’s story about Trump in the case. “She put in Donald Trump’s mouth, the fact that he understood that those payments were made on his behalf before the election by Michael Cohen,” Conway said on CNN’s “The Situation Room” with host Wolf Blitzer, while speaking about Trump. “And that’s just… that’s devastating testimony. It absolutely corroborates Michael Cohen’s story, which has been corroborated in numerous respects, and it shows that he knew that when he was signing...

    Michael Cohen, the once loyal lawyer of former President Donald Trump, had been cashing in on the ex-president’s hush money trial by discussing the case on nightly TikTok livestreams — something legal experts warn may spoil his credibility as a key witness. Ahead of taking the witness stand, Cohen has earned money through donations made by viewers of his nightly live streams, during which he has discussed Trump, the ongoing trial, and the testimony, according to hours of streams viewed by ABC News. “Trump 2024?” Cohen said during a live stream last Tuesday. “More like Trump 20-40 years.” While Cohen’s...
