    Michael Cohen, the onetime personal lawyer and fixer for Donald Trump, has settled his lawsuit accusing the Trump Organization of failing to cover millions of dollars of legal bills he incurred over his work for the former U.S. president. Lawyers for both sides disclosed the settlement at a hearing in a New York state court in Manhattan on Friday, three days before a trial was scheduled to begin. Terms of the settlement were not made public. Cohen and a lawyer for the Trump Organization issued statements that the matter "has been resolved in a manner satisfactory to all parties." Once...

    A federal judge in New York has rejected former President Donald Trump's request to move his hush-money criminal case into federal court. "Trump has failed to show that the conduct charged by the Indictment is for or relating to any act performed by or for the President under color of the official acts of a President," Judge Alvin Hellerstein wrote in his ruling Wednesday. Trump has pleaded not guilty to a 34-count indictment charging him with falsifying business records in connection with a hush money payment made to adult film actress Stormy Daniels days before the 2016 presidential election. He...

    Donald Trump is an electoral disaster for the Republican Party. He cost the GOP control of the House of Representatives in 2018, lost the presidency in 2020, and contributed to the party’s underperformance in the 2022 midterms. So how to stop Trump from wreaking havoc in 2024? Apparently some desperate Republicans are simply hoping he dies before the election. I’m not exaggerating. Earlier this week, the Atlantic’s McKay Coppins recounted multiple conversations with Republican officials who see no way to stop Trump from destroying the party in yet another electoral cycle.

    We’ve seen the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office has had a lot of questionable things regarding its case against former President Donald Trump involving alleged hush money payments to Stormy Daniels.First, Democrat Manhattan D.A. Alvin Bragg didn’t pursue the matter when he came into office. He had prosecutors quit over it, but he didn’t want to pursue any action against Trump. The feds also didn’t think there was anything they should be pursuing. But then Bragg — for some reason, let’s guess why — flipped and indicted Trump a few months after he declared he was running for president in 2024.However,...

    On Saturday, we caught Michael Cohen, appearing on Katie Phang's MSNBC show, speaking of Marjorie 'Toilet' Greene.But that was mild compared to the truly vile, misogynistic tweet that Rick Wilson, of the disgraced Lincoln Project, recently made about the anatomy of the Republican congresswoman from Georgia. After traveling to Manhattan for the Trump arraignment, in an interview with Tucker Carlson, Taylor Greene said of NYC: "It was repulsive, it smells bad, and I just I think it’s a terrible place." In response, Wilson tweeted: "But enough about her lady business.Get the rest of the story and view the video here.

    When a prosecutor takes the historically unprecedented step of indicting an American former president, especially one who is also a presidential candidate, then he better make damn sure he has a rock solid case. Unfortunately it appears that New York District Attorney has such an incredibly weak case that even very liberal New York magazine in its Intelligencer section has serious doubts about it, as you can see revealed by Ankush Khardori on Friday in an article with the downbeat title of "Michael Cohen Is Already Undermining the Trump Prosecution." To emphasize the point the subtitle states, "Immediately after the...

    Remember Michael Avenatti? Five years ago the media wouldn't let you forget him since from early 2018 until February 2019 the former lawyer for Stormy Daniels was a ubiquitous presence on the news to the extent of 254 television appearances during that time frame including 122 times on CNN and 108 times on MSNBC. You would not expect Avenatti to appear nowadays on television due to being sentenced to prison for 14 years with Terminal Island Federal Correctional Institution as his current abode. But none of that has dimmed his ego as a pundit and what he tweeted about Manhattan...

    A newly surfaced letter from 2018 shows Michael Cohen lying to federal election officials about his infamous, $130,000 payment to porn star Stormy Daniels — which later helped send him to prison.The letter, obtained by The Post on Wednesday, emerged as the disbarred lawyer appeared poised to become the star witness in an unprecedented criminal case against his ex-boss, former President Donald Trump.In it, Cohen told the Federal Election Commission that he “used his own personal funds to facilitate a payment of $130,000 to Ms. Stephanie Clifford,” aka Daniels, in 2016.“Neither the Trump Organization nor the Trump campaign was a...

Secondly, DeSantis will not win the general because Trumpers will not vote. Outcome - destroy Trump, DeSantis and MAGA in one swoop. Barnes also explains the case against Trump and other insights.

    Robert Costello, the former legal advisor to ex-Trump attorney Michael Cohen, appeared before the grand jury in the Manhattan District Attorney’s investigation into former President Trump Monday, and testified that Cohen is a "serial liar." Costello said he testified to the grand jury Monday that Trump did not know about the payments made by Cohen to Stormy Daniels. "There can be no doubt in anyone’s mind that Michael Cohen has great difficulty telling the truth," Costello said. "He is, after all a convicted perjurer, and our track record with Mr. Cohen convinced us that he was a serial liar." Cohen's...

    Michael Cohen has warned that Donald Trump may be looking to stir up controversy and a "violent clash" after revealing that he expects an arrest ahead of a potential indictment. "Donald’s post is eerily similar to his battle cry prior to the January 6th insurrection; including calling for protest," Cohen told The New York Post Saturday. "By doing so, Donald is hoping to rile his base, witness another violent clash on his behalf and profit from it by soliciting contributions." Trump posted on Truth Social that he expects an arrest in Manhattan on Tuesday as the District Attorney’s Office seeks...

    MSNBC ^ | February 20, 2023 | Michael A. Cohen
    The American presidency is one of the strangest jobs in the world. Politicians aspire to it. The media focuses obsessively on the person who holds it and those who want to win it. Millions of books and articles have been written about it. And yet, most of the people who’ve held the job really weren’t that good. There are a few truly great presidents, some pretty good ones and a handful of complete disasters. But most can be summed up, as the Simpsons famously once did, as the “adequate, forgettable, occasionally regrettable, caretaker presidents of the U.S.A.” In fairness, the...

    Michael Cohen, a former personal attorney for Donald Trump, said Wednesday on MSNBC’s “Deadline” that it is “extremely important for Democrats to be able to expose” the weaponization of the Justice Department during the Trump administration. Former Rep. David Jolly (R-FL) asked, “You said you would love to share with the Biden administration information regarding the weaponization of the federal government. Where were you going with that? What information on the weaponization of government during your years with Donald Trump is relevant?”
