    Michael Cohen was cut loose from federal prison Friday afternoon — a day after a judge ruled he was thrown in jail as “retaliation” for planning to write a tell-all book about President Trump. Cohen was walked out of Otisville prison in central New York at about 1 p.m., his lawyer, Danya Perry, said. He was picked up by his son and is headed to his apartment in Manhattan. “Mr. Cohen is extremely gratified that the court upheld his fundamental constitutional right to speak freely and publicly,” Perry added in a statement. His release comes a day after Judge Alvin...
  • Prosecutors unlikely to charge Trump Org executives, sources say

    A federal investigation into whether Trump Organization executives violated campaign-finance laws appears to be wrapping up without charges being filed, according to people familiar with the matter. For months, federal prosecutors in New York have examined whether company officials broke the law, including in their effort to reimburse Michael Cohen for hush-money payments he made to women alleging affairs with his former boss, President Donald Trump. In recent weeks, however, their investigation has quieted, the people familiar with the inquiry said, and prosecutors now don't appear poised to charge any Trump Organization executives in the probe that stemmed from the...

    Federal prosecutors say an IRS investigator in California has admitted leaking confidential details of financial transactions by former Trump attorney Michael Cohen to Michael Avenatti, lawyer for Stormy Daniels. John C. Fry has been charged in federal court with searching for and disseminating Suspicious Activity Reports (SARs), reports filed by banks when they note potentially suspicious transactions. Federal officials say they found telephone records that indicate Fry placed a phone call from his personal cell phone to that of Stormy Daniels’ attorney Michael Avenatti the day before Avenatti released details of Cohen's financial transactions, and the day after. The federal...

    Disgraced former New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman may have wanted to unseat President Trump from the White House to help keep his alleged sexual assault of women a secret, according to new shocking court documents. The lawyer for two unidentified women — who claim they were sexually assaulted by Schneiderman — said in recent court documents he reached out to Trump and his attorney Michael Cohen for help in 2013, long before Trump announced his presidential aspirations. Whether or not Schneiderman knew these women turned to Trump and Cohen for help, via attorney Peter Gleason, the New York attorney...

    The Democrats’ ongoing quest to topple the president. The new House Intelligence Committee report finds no collusion between Russia and the Trump campaign. The former FBI boss tasked with finding the collusion, Special Counsel Robert Mueller, recently announced that President Trump is not his target. This has left many observers puzzled, but one Russian actor may be able to put things in perspective.   In the 1981 Fort Apache the Bronx, police officers throw a man off a roof. Many American viewers were horrified but Russian actor Yakov Smirnoff had a different take. “This is nothing,” Smirnoff said. “In Russia,...
  • Special Master in Michael Cohen case finds 162 privileged docs in first batch seized by feds

    06/05/2018 7:01:24 PM PDT · by ameribbean expat · 2 replies
    Based on the wording of the recommendation, it appears that the Special Master upheld the challenges in all but three cases. So Cohen and/or Trump’s claims of privilege were upheld in 162 of 165 challenges. *** 162 privileged and 10 “Highly Personal” files is very substantial, particularly keeping in mind this is just the first batch of documents reviewed from a much larger group of electronic records. That means the federal government, but for Cohen’s lawsuit, would have been able to review and potentially use a total of 172 documents that the federal government never should have seen.

    The FBI raided the offices of President Trump's personal attorney Michael Cohen on Monday. The raid came after federal prosecutors in New York City obtained a search warrant following a referral from special counsel Robert Mueller, Cohen's lawyer told the New York Times. Mueller is investigating Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election, and related issues. NBC News confirmed news of the raid. The Times reported that FBI agents seized records relating to several issues, including a $130,000 payment Cohen has said he made to porn star Stormy Daniels. Daniels has said that money was given to her in exchange...

    Harvard law professor Alan Dershowitz will have dinner Tuesday at the White House with President Donald Trump He tells that the Department of Justice violated Trump lawyer Michael Cohen's rights when it seized his documents on Monday The government will set up a team of agents and lawyers to review the material to make sure prosecutors don't see anything 'privileged' That could include documents covered by the sanctity of an attorney-client relationship, whose mere presence in prosecutors' hands could 'taint' a case But since those 'taint teams' are made up of government agents, Dershowitz says the DOJ already has...

    The FBI is investigating a $150,000 payment that the publisher of the National Enquirer made to a second woman who claims she had an affair with the president, according to a report Tuesday. The agency executed a search warrant Monday targeting President Trump’s personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, that included a request for documents related to Cohen’s payment of $130,000 to stripper Stormy Daniels. The porn star has said she had an affair with Trump. But the feds also want to know about a payment made by American Media Inc., which owns the Enquirer, to former Playboy model Karen McDougal, sources...
