Is Trump About To Fire Mueller?? Look At The Evidence!

OK, we're not going to keep you in suspense. The answer to bet on is OF COURSE Donald Trump is going to fire Robert Mueller. The only questions are When? and What are we going to do about it? Many have been calling for months for the protection of the Special Prosecutor's investigation, which has already yielded [...] OK, we're not going to keep you in suspense. The answer to bet on is OF COURSE Donald Trump is going to fire Robert Mueller. The only questions are When? and What are we going to do about it? Many have been calling for months for the protection of the Special Prosecutor's investigation, which has already yielded multiple guilty pleas and apparently uncovered Russian agents who compromised the 2016 election. Related: EXCLUSIVE! Donald Trump Jr.'s Secret Affair With Aubrey O'Day Revealed! Congress has passed no legislation, with some Republicans saying essentially there's no need to buy an umbrella because it's not raining yet. After this weekend's actions and tweetstorm by the President, we think the evidence is pretty clear. Ch-ch-check it out (below)! 1.) Trump actively encouraged the quick firing of FBI deputy director Andrew McCabe before his official retirement date -- keeping him from receiving his pension. And Jeff Sessions went through with it, despite McCabe being a witness in the Mueller probe and Sessions supposedly being recused from anything related to the investigation. Sessions faced no repercussions, so now he's obviously free to fire Mueller when Trump tells him to. Related: Why Trump's Next Picks For Secretary Of State & CIA Director Should Scare You 2.) Trump went on a Twitter rant over the weekend, using Mueller's name for the first time, calling fired FBI leaders James Comey and McCabe liars and saying outright the probe should end. As the House Intelligence Committee has concluded, there was no collusion between Russia and the Trump Campaign. As many are now finding out, however, there was tremendous leaking, lying and corruption at the highest levels of the FBI, Justice & State. #DrainTheSwamp — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) March 17, 2018 Trump's toadie Devin Nunes ended the House Intelligence Committee's Russia probe without interviewing all witnesses or cooperating with any of the Democrats on the committee in drafting its report. Trump is now using that to discredit the entire investigation. The Mueller probe should never have been started in that there was no collusion and there was no crime. It was based on fraudulent activities and a Fake Dossier paid for by Crooked Hillary and the DNC, and improperly used in FISA COURT for surveillance of my campaign. WITCH HUNT! — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) March 18, 2018 The investigation actually began based on information from many sources, including in his own team. The FBI had found Carter Page was approached by Russian agents years before Trump's campaign. And that "Fake Dossier" was first paid for by Republicans. It was just garden variety opposition research that turned scandalous because TRUMP IS CONNECTED TO RUSSIAN CRIMINALS. (And also possibly watersports.) Why does the Mueller team have 13 hardened Democrats, some big Crooked Hillary supporters, and Zero Republicans? Another Dem recently added...does anyone think this is fair? And yet, there is NO COLLUSION! — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) March 18, 2018 Zero Republicans? Mueller is a Republican. Also, all his bosses are Republicans. James Comey is a Republican. Andrew McCabe is a Republican. The FBI is FILLED with Republicans. Separate from that though... the notion that Democrats can't serve their country as law enforcement agents is despicable, tyrannical garbage. What he really means is, if anyone ever disagrees with him or accuses him of crimes, even with evidence, they're biased. BULLSHIT. A total WITCH HUNT with massive conflicts of interest! — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) March 19, 2018 This is totally what innocent people say... Team Trump keeps trying to have it both ways, saying Trump is just kidding or merely expressing feelings on his Twitter account when they want the American people to look away -- but also referring the press to it for his official statements. Also, Trump does make announcements on it, like when he fired Rex Tillerson. So as unhinged as it is, this is Trump's official word. Related: Trump Got PISSED After Sanders Accidentally Told The Wrong Lies About Stormy Daniels 3.) Even one of Trump's lawyers, John Dowd, called for the end of the Mueller probe this weekend. He declared to CNN in a statement: "I pray that Acting Attorney General Rosenstein will follow the brilliant and courageous example of the FBI Office of Professional Responsibility and Attorney General Jeff Sessions and bring an end to alleged Russia collusion investigation manufactured by McCabe's boss James Comey based upon a fraudulent and corrupt dossier." That's the President's personal lawyer saying that. 4.) What happened Monday morning was even more concrete. Trump hired yet another lawyer Joseph diGenova, who has previously been all over Fox News claiming the FBI and DOJ are trying to frame Trump. Back in late 2016 and early 2017, he said the same about Comey -- before Trump fired him. diGenova is being hired to spread the word. They're all getting the message out to the American people: it's OK to fire Mueller because the probe is bogus. This is FOR SURE about to happen. And it's apparently going to happen soon. All this nonsense seemed to ramp up right after Mueller's team sent Trump's lawyers a list of questions they would ask him in the interview he said he wanted to do. So once again, the question is WHAT ARE WE GOING TO DO ABOUT IT?? [Image via Ron Sachs/Alex Edelman//CNP/Media Punch.].....»»

Shakira Drops MILLIONS In Back Taxes & Could Still Owe More! See The Other Celebs Who"ve Had Tax Troubles HERE!

Shakira's tax woes are far from over. According to reports, the Colombian songstress has allegedly paid Spanish tax authorities about £18 million after being hit with warnings about a potential tax fraud prosecution. Eek.

According to reports, the Colombian songstress has allegedly paid Spanish tax authorities about £18 million after being hit with warnings about a potential tax fraud prosecution. Eek. The former Voice judge handed over the sum in an attempt to settle alleged 2011 tax debt. As we reported, Spanish authorities began looking into the 41-year-old's financial affairs between 2011 and 2014, as it's believed that she evaded paying proper taxes. Per the Catalan newspaper El Periodico, the chart topper wrote a check for £17.65 million, but could still appeal the payment. Apparently, the debate between Shakira and the Spanish government has to do with whether or not the A-lister resided in Spain during the specified years. Spanish law decrees that if one spends at least 183 days in Spain, they are considered a fiscal resident of the country AND must pay taxes on global income. Sadly, as the recent payment was just one of four under investigation, Spain's Tax Agency is still probing her finances. Understandably, the superstar is eyeing an appeal, as she claims she was away from Spain during most of the time cited. Be sure to learn the other celebs who've struggled with tax dramz (below)...

Bryce Dallas Howard Wants Equal Pay Because She’s So Talented And Irreplaceable

  When you think of someone who deserves to be paid millions of dollars to act, it’s definitely Bryce Dallas Howard. I mean, wow. What a unique talent. What a memorable actress.

I mean, wow. What a unique talent. What a memorable actress. There’s a reason she won all those Academy Awards. Raw, unbridled talent. And isn’t it refreshing to see someone not solely rely on her famous parents to get every single little thing that’s been handed to her in this world? Sure, the first four acting credits on Howard’s IMDB profile – Parenthood, Apollo 13, How the Grinch Stole Christmas, and A Beautiful Mind – were all directed by her father Ron Howard, but that means literally nothing. No, this woman is truly a sensation regardless of her Hollywood connections. Belated April fools. Howard is considered to be so wildly forgettable that she’s become the discount Jessica Chastain, and since being the actual Jessica Chastain is the worst thing in the world, the designation isn’t a feather in Howard’s cap. Howard made it onto the cover of the most prestigious magazine I’ve ever come across, Redbook, and in the accompanying interview she kind of tries to talk like someone who knows anything about the world at all. Howard throws around a bunch of info in addressing equal pay for women, but considering that she makes daddy write a check anytime she wants a role – allegedly, according to me – don’t take anything here to heart: I’m not a spender. I live in a three-bedroom house— in fact, we just downsized. I know that we’re privileged; we don’t have to worry about paying our rent or our medical bills. But I wish people knew that this is what the life of most successful female celebrities is. What we get paid is totally, completely, astronomically different than what male celebrities get paid. And for women of color, it’s a hundred times worse. A talented, bankable actress should make the same as a talented, bankable actor, but Howard shouldn’t be making anything besides burgers at McDonald’s. She continues to state that her dad was shocked when he realized what actresses sacrifice in order to be in the industry. And as a director and producer Ron Howard was obviously totally unaware of pay discrepancies and definitely didn’t perpetuate the gender pay gap for decades. Belated April fools again: Even my dad [Director Ron Howard] has been shocked at how expensive it is to be a woman in the industry. You’re told that it’s important to have a manager as well as an agent, and for a guy that’s not as important. That’s 20% out of your paycheck rather than 10%. And because it’s an interview in 2018, here’s Howard (kind of) on #MeThree!: I’ve been [wimpy] about it in the past. I didn’t want people to think I wasn’t grateful for opportunities. I also get scared off by every threat during a negotiation. They’ll say, ‘We’ll just have to find someone else,’ and I back off. You can’t do that. To think that Chastain might have lost out on movie roles. Why didn’t you speak up more, Howard, why?   Photo Credit: Redbook / Pacific Coast News  The post Bryce Dallas Howard Wants Equal Pay Because She’s So Talented And Irreplaceable appeared first on WWTDD - What Would Tyler Durden Do?......»»

The country says the mom of two, who is said to be worth more than $200 million, lived in the country during those years. Sources close to the celeb say Shakira has done nothing wrong and that she has always fulfilled her tax obligations. Not to mention, she was outside Spain most of that time. If the Waka Waka songstress is found to have moved to Barcelona before 2015, her tax bill could be tens of millions of dollars.

A Sober Mike Sorrentino Can"t WAIT For You To See The "New And Improved Situation" In Jersey Shore Family Vacation!

Video: Vinny Worries About Ronnie Getting Another Woman Pregnant! Speaking [...] Jersey Shore fans are ready for more Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino, but is he ready for more Jersey Shore? The reality tv icon teased that a much more mature situation would be gracing screens this month when the revival season of Jersey Shore Family Vacation premieres on MTV. Video: Vinny Worries About Ronnie Getting Another Woman Pregnant! Speaking to ET at the show's premiere party, the 35-year-old opened up about getting sober and his attempts to get his life together following his tax evasion sentence earlier this year. He dished to Katie Krause: "[I'm] 28 months sober, I'm very proud, it's one of my finest accomplishments and it was a huge challenge. It's a 'one day at a time' thing and [I'm] just showing people that it's very possible." Inspiring! But not promising for us fans who just want to see the Situation bang his head against a wall like he did in season 3. While being brought back into a house fueled by drinking and debauchery (read: Snooki) is a bad idea for a recovering alcoholic, Sorrentino said he made sure to focus on his own health and not try to keep up with the rest of the gang: "The mindset was coming from a grateful standpoint, a blessed standpoint. Stay in your lane and run your own race. They could be drinking, they could be having fun, but that's not my race, because if I look over to the person next to me, guess what? I'm going to trip over my own feet and you're going to win the race and The Situation is not going to let that happen." And don't worry, fans -- the Situation did not let sobriety keep himself from entertaining the masses: "I challenged myself to have fun, dance, and be at a club till 5 am and show people it's possible to have fun. And you'll see, because The Situation turns up more than some people do when they're even drinking." Eat your hair gel out, DJ Pauly D! A big reason Sorrentino has remained dedicated to staying healthy is his longtime girlfriend Lauren Pesce. He gushed: "Definitely, she is the one, for sure. She's been through good times and bad times, the ups and downs, she saw me at my worst and she deserves me at my best." Life for the Sitch isn't all sunshine and laundry, though. Sorrentino could face five years in prison after pleading guilty to one count of tax evasion in January alongside his brother Marc Sorrentino. Related: Catelynn Lowell & Tyler Baltierra Are Open To Having More Kids! Until his April 25 sentencing, the reality star has been making an effort to better the state that made him famous. He's been serving as the director of public outreach for a New Jersey rehab facility and conducting speaking events for people who are struggling with addiction. He explained of his new calling: "I continue to better myself and I'm like, 'How can I continue to better myself?' and I'm like, 'You know what, let me help others.' So I'm trying my best to continue to take on challenges and continue to move forward." How admirable! Even with the threat of jail time hanging over his head, Sorrentino says he is "at peace" with the impending sentencing -- but is even more excited for the world to see the "new and improved Situation" in the upcoming season: "I just want people to see the new Situation! The new and improved Situation. And you'll be surprised what you see." Wow! He genuinely seems older, wiser, and overall less of a giant douche. Let's hope the rest of the cast isn't, or we're in for one tame, enlightened Jersey Shore Family Vacation on April 5. [Image via MTV.].....»»

According to a report from the Huffington Post published on Thursday, in May 2017, longtime Donald Trump aide Lynne Patton contacted Leah Remini saying the President believes the Church of Scientology should have its tax exemption revoked. Related: Donald Trump Says Texas Church Shooting 'Isn't A Guns Situation' The Department of Housing and Urban Development official told the actress via Twitter direct message: "From The moment I saw your series I told President Trump & his family we needed to revoke their tax exempt status. They couldn't agree more, but please don't publicize that yet. I want to do more due diligence on what the IRS has attempted in the past (or maybe you can enlighten me), then I'll identify who we need to connect with again." On the same day, Patton wrote: "This is going to get done in the next 4 years or I'll die trying. Knock on wood!" While its unclear if Lynne ended up contacting the IRS, if she did with Trump's blessing, it would be completely unethical and possibly illegal. According to Larry Noble, former general counsel of the Federal Election Commission: "For the White House or any administration official to try and influence who the IRS targets, for whatever reason, is wrong and could result in a violation of the law... The IRS must make these decisions independently without any influence by the White House or administration officials." Lynne last contacted Remini on June 8 where she sent over a link to a New York Post article about Tom Cruise's role in Scientology. The Trump-favorite also wrote in the email: "By the way, when things calm down about Comey, etc, and I get more due diligence on the IRS, I'll circle back." In an interesting twist of events, the former VP of The Eric Trump Foundation was publicly seen months later with an unnamed Scientologist who is making waves in the Trump world. Weird, weird, weird!

More Than A Dozen Women Come Forward With Sexual Assault Allegations Against Porn Veteran Ron Jeremy — "He Doesn"t Hear No"

Ron Jeremy is the latest celebrity to be called out for alleged sexual assault. In a new Rolling Stone report, more than a dozen women came forward with accusations of impropriety spanning over 30 years.

In a new Rolling Stone report, more than a dozen women came forward with accusations of impropriety spanning over 30 years. Related: Al Franken Accuser Leeann Tweeden Doesn't Want The Senator To Step Down Actress Jennifer Steele claimed the 64-year-old raped her twice, once at a photo shoot and another time at his apartment, in December of 1997. She told the mag of him allegedly cornering her in a bathroom: "He was like, 'I need to look at your ass so I can get hard for the photo shoot.' Then it turned into him basically sticking it in without me knowing it was happening. I said flat-out no. It stopped, but it didn't stop soon enough after I said no ... During the whole photo shoot I was thinking, 'Was I just raped? What the fuck just happened?' [But] by the time the shoot was done, I had it in my head that I had somehow exaggerated it and it was an honest mistake ... He just kinda keeps going and pretends like you didn't say anything." When asked why she didn't report the crime, Steele replied: "I was pretty promiscuous. I was a stripper. I couldn't prove it." Adding: "He hides behind other women's scarlet letters, is what he does. [He] know[s] if someone's a porn star and they say they've been raped, people aren't gonna take it seriously." Another adult performer, Kendra Sunderland, said Jeremy sucked her breasts without permission at a Dallas expo in 2015: "People expect this from him. If I went and got mad on Twitter, people would say, 'That's Ron.' But if I said a fan did it, they'd say 'That's not OK, that's crossing a line.'" As you can probably imagine, it's very difficult for sex workers to come forward with their stories considering the stigma and gray areas that are involved when it comes to being in the adult entertainment industry. Not to mention, sex workers who come forward are "likely to be blamed or disbelieved by law enforcement." With that said, Rolling Stone spoke with several people in the industry who said Jeremy's behavior is not standard. Popular performer Julia Ann said: "I think Ron is an anomaly, and you'd be hard-pressed to say there's any other person who's been able to publicly sexually harass or assault people and get away with it. It's one thing for someone to do it in their hotel room or their condo or their office or their car, but he can do it in the middle of a convention ... When there are dollar signs involved, the lines [of consent] actually get drawn much more distinctly." In 2003, Jeremy was investigated for criminal sexual conduct after a fan alleged he held her down and raped her in his Michigan hotel room. Charges were not pressed. Also in 2003, performer Ginger Lynn said Jeremy raped her while they were on location shooting a film in 1983. In 2007, another fan told police the porn star reached inside her bra, pulled out her breast, and signed it without her permission at an expo in Miami. Jeremy told TMZ at the time: "I probably signed about 150 boobs that weekend, all of which I sign 'RJ' with a heart.'" There are just a handful of the many explosive accusations against Ron for years of abuse. Related: Sylvester Stallone Allegations Bring Half-Sister's Rape Claims Back Into The Spotlight In a statement to the magazine in response to the many allegations, Jeremy said in full: "Let me first say, that I'm fully in support of the women and men who have been coming forward about being sexually assaulted. These real predators need to be taken down. My reputation is currently being smeared by these old allegations that have already been investigated and dismissed. However, I understand how social change works, and if my reputation has to get a bit tarnished along the way for the better treatment of women, and men, so be it. I will be there to support all people, men and women, that have bravely come forward to attack this systemic problem. As for the allegations against me, these allegations have been online and in print for quite sometime. This is not new or breaking news. I'm shocked you guys are picking this up after it's been reported on over and over by other publications and has been proven over and over to be false. I have never and would never rape anyone. All serious allegations have been investigated by police and dismissed by judges, as have most of the accusations of "Groping". I have never been charged nor spent one day in court for any of this. And these are old allegations. Check, Anything about me appearing in court or in jail, is public record. I was only arrested 20 years ago when I was fighting for Freedom Of Speech with Hal Freeman. The police who looked into the groping charges have always said that they watch the video from the event or whatever and that I did nothing wrong or illegal. They then ask if I want to press charges against The people making false accusations. I never have. As for the charges of Groping, I say yes, I AM A GROPER. And by groper, I mean I get paid to show up to these shows, events, and photo shoots and touch the people and they touch me. I'm not the young stud I was, but I still draw a crowd. And we are talking about things that are within reason, in front of police officer's and security that are always there as well as the tons of cameras And the general public. But seriously, if you were going to be around Ron Jeremy, wouldn't you assume that I'd be a little bit touchy Feely? Yes. This is what I do for a living. I am not Kevin Spacey, Louis CK, Weinstein, or Cosby. For over 40 years fans and fellow performers pay money and wait in long lines to meet me. They want autographs, pictures, to flirt with me, physically grab me in different areas (usually my clothed penis), they ask me to touch them and many ask to have me sign their boobs. When I take photos with fans and other performers at these conventions, signings or events, I do sometimes kiss people on the lips or the cheek, sign boobs or whatever they want. There is "put on" flirting and touching for the photos. This is exactly what people pay me for at conventions. The female performers flirt and touch too. It's what we do. If you watch these videos that Ginger Banks put out of me "groping," you see that everyone in the videos is laughing and "groping" too. That I'm not running up to them, they come to me. If anyone was ever made to feel uncomfortable by ANY of our interactions, I'm deeply sorry. That was never my intention and it breaks my heart in half. I hope that everyone reading this keeps in mind that I do tons of these conventions and adult signings. I take pictures with about 500,000 people each all over the world and have every year, for 40 years. These touching complaints are the exact same thing everyone else stood in line for. They couldn't be happier. I have never raped anyone. If anyone continues those claims, that is defamation. I will sue them in court. I'm not saying that I never met these people or interacted with them. I don't remember most of them, how could I? I may have seen hundreds people on those days. A girl said that I took her into a back room at a convention? Now this I remember. No one pushed anyone anywhere, she and a girl friend of hers asked if they could come in to the back tent with me. "Back room" was actually a small tent where the performers went to relax and eat crafty. There were seven other people in the small tent including security guard. And we took some sexy photos with each other as people looked on or looked at their phones. If I did anything wrong, that security guard who works for the convention, would have taken me down and called the police. And someone claimed that in hedonism in Jamaica, which is a nudist swingers resort, I tried to massage their leg years ago? Why is this even in an article? I am very happy that the scum bags of the earth are being taken down. They deserve it. But these allegations are pure lies or buyers remorse. In 40 years, I've never been punched by a boyfriend or anyone ever. I have been heartbroken over these allegations. Not because it affects me or my business, I can take that, but because they are lies and there are actual women and men out there Who have been victims of serious sexual assault, and so on, that are trying to get their voices heard. Again, It does bother me that there might be women out there that had some buyers remorse after our interactions. But I did nothing wrong or out of the ordinary for these conventions or events. These events are supposed to be a fun time. That video that Ginger Banks made looks like a pro Ron Jeremy video if you turn off the sound. Everyone in the videos is having fun with me. This really is a non-story. However I'm glad I had a chance to speak my side." Thoughts??? SOUND OFF in the comments (below)! [Image via WENN.].....»»

Donald Trump Says Texas Church Shooting "Isn"t A Guns Situation" — But Twitter Reminds Him That"s Absolutely What It Is

Donald Trump has yet another divisive and passive response in the face of tragedy. As we're sure you heard, a 26-year-old gunman killed at least 26 people and wounded about 20 others inside the First Baptist Church in Sutherland Springs, Texas on Sunday. In response, POTUS told reporters the shooting "isn't a guns situation," but rather a [...] Donald Trump has yet another divisive and passive response in the face of tragedy. As we're sure you heard, a 26-year-old gunman killed at least 26 people and wounded about 20 others inside the First Baptist Church in Sutherland Springs, Texas on Sunday. In response, POTUS told reporters the shooting "isn't a guns situation," but rather a "mental health problem." How about: it's both. We should care about mental health AND gun control -- and why in the world someone with mental health issues can have access to an assault rifle in the first place. Related: Trump Is The First Result When You Search For 'Hitler' On Twitter At the press briefing, Trump said "mental health is your problem here," calling the shooter a "very deranged individual" with "a lot of problems over a long period of time." He went on to say that it's "a little too soon" to get into gun control policy. He said the same thing after the Las Vegas shooting and has yet to do anything about that attack either. You can watch Trump express his "thoughts and prayers" (below): ...Americans do what we do best: we pull together. We join hands. We lock arms and through the tears and the sadness, we stand strong... pic.twitter.com/qkCPgtKGkA — Donald J.

Secret Donald Trump Tape Released — 5 Things We Learned!

Strap in.

After a few days of Trump's new lawyer and professional bungler Rudy Giuliani started making the rounds telling [...] Strap in. Last week news hit that the first of at least a dozen tapes prosecutors have after the raid on lawyer Michael Cohen included his client Donald Trump talking about paying hush money to alleged mistress Karen McDougal. After a few days of Trump's new lawyer and professional bungler Rudy Giuliani started making the rounds telling people what was and wasn't on the audio recording, Cohen apparently had enough. Photos: Trump's Scribblings On Putin Statement Are Even WORSE! Look! On Tuesday night he released actual audio to CNN, who promptly aired the clip. It's just one of many tapes, but already the convo -- and the fallout from it -- are telling us a lot. Get the breakdown (below)! 1. Trump Knew EVERYTHING The position of Team Trump has been for so long that Trump knew nothing about any of this and Cohen was acting independently. Obviously that all sounded like utter horseshit. What lawyer just assumes a woman who says she was a client's mistress is telling the truth and needs to be paid off -- and then PAYS HER OFF WITH HIS OWN MONEY?? But in the 2016 audio recording it's clear Cohen was giving Trump constant updates on the activities for which he's being investigated. Meaning any legal liability he has is shared by the president. Also worth noting? Trump doesn't exactly seem surprised. For the Donald on the tape, setting up a shell company for a payoff relating to "our friend David" (presumably David Dennison, Trump's legal alias in his Stormy Daniels NDA) certainly seems like business as usual. Are there more women out there who got payoffs? 2. Trump Does NOT Want People Looking At Ivana's Divorce Papers An aspect of the tape not previously reported is speaking about The New York Times' effort to make Trump's first divorce papers public. Why would that be such a big deal? Hmm, maybe because SHE ACCUSED HIM OF MARITAL RAPE. Long before all the other assault claims, Ivana Trump swore under oath in a deposition that Donald had raped her. She later recanted. Interesting Trump was so concerned with those actual papers seeing the light of day... 3. It's Beginning To Look A Lot Like Campaign Finance Violation The tape was made in September 2016. So with Trump's talk only needing to "delay" things coming out, it doesn't take a legal scholar to put two and two together here. Trump is talking about keeping scandals quiet to protect his campaign in the same 30 seconds he's talking about setting up a company to make a hush money payment. That makes the payment an unreported campaign contribution Trump knowingly kept secret. And even if Giuliani is right about Trump saying don't before the "use cash" remark (there's that would/wouldn't excuse again) -- it doesn't prove innocence at all as it STILL involves Trump giving the order to make the payment. 4. Michael Cohen Has Flipped On Trump We mean, it was looking inevitable. But if anything Trump pushed his former right hand man over the edge. Having Giuliani come out and throw Cohen under the bus seems to be the tipping point leading Cohen to pretty publicly turn on the POTUS. As his new lawyer Lanny Davis said on GMA Wednesday morning: "Michael Cohen has turned a corner in his life and he's now dedicated to telling the truth to everyone and we'll see what happens." Davis also explicitly states Cohen is not seeking a pardon from the President. 5. Trump Is Scared Trump doesn't have a real defense for this. You know how you can tell? At around 2:30 a.m. his time, the President jumped on Twitter to whine about it. This isn't a cogent defense -- it's whinging: What kind of a lawyer would tape a client? So sad! Is this a first, never heard of it before? Why was the tape so abruptly terminated (cut) while I was presumably saying positive things? I hear there are other clients and many reporters that are taped - can this be so? Too bad! — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) July 25, 2018 Kind of reminds one of that ATTORNEY-CLIENT PRIVILEGE IS DEAD tweet. Notice how he's leaving the door open for conspiracy theorists to fill in the blanks? Watch Fox News change their talking points to claiming the tape is purposely cut off at that exact point. As though Trump will say something that totally proves his innocence just one second later. Funny with all the scandals the thing that really seems to get Trump riled up is Cohen. Almost like his lawyer knows where all the bodies are buried -- and can just as easily bury Trump...
