Buzzfeed Publishes Leaked Documents From Michael Cohen’s Shredder, Here’s What They Say

Michael Cohen

On Monday, Buzzfeed News put out a piece that featured leaked documents that came from the shredder of former Trump attorney Michael Cohen, which had been pieced together by the FBI.

Cohen is currently being investigated by the Office of Special Counsel and the Southern District of New York. It’s unclear as of this writing how Buzzfeed managed to get their paws on these documents, but they certainly weren’t the bombshells the publication made them out to be.

Michael Avenatti, lawyer for porn star Stormy Daniels was sure that these documents would prove to be problematic for President Trump, who is alleged to have had an affair with Daniels back in 2006, while Melania was pregnant with their son Barron.

Well, as it turns out, the shredded documents were nothing more than documents the prosecutors already had in their possession. Talk about anti-climactic.

Among them are handwritten notes about a taxi business, “rambling letters” that appear to be unconnected to the investigation, and insurance papers. Some are almost incomprehensible, one containing a “jumble of numbers, letters, and bar codes,” while another “appears to be part of an envelope.” The ones that do make some sense don’t appear to be game-changing.

Apart from letters from a writer, Karen Wickman, who says she was harassed and blackmailed by Trump back in the ’80s and has posted the letters on her website, Letters to Celebrities, and sent them to several federal and state entities, BuzzFeed found only one document worth highlighting, and it contains information that’s already been reported:

The clearest page documents a payment that has already been reported: a $62,500 wire transfer from March into a First Republic Bank account controlled by Cohen. This would fit with a series of payments reportedly from the Republican fundraiser Elliott Broidy. He reportedly paid Cohen to negotiate a nondisclosure agreement with a former Playboy model with whom Broidy was romantically involved. A federal law enforcement source told BuzzFeed News that prosecutors already possessed some of the records dealing with Cohen’s financial transactions.

The FBI has reportedly obtained some 4 million documents related to the Cohen case. According to BuzzFeed’s findings, the shredded documents appear to have been redundant.

If you listen carefully, you can hear the collective disappointed sigh of liberals across America as, once again, their hopes of the president being impeached turn to dust.

It really feels like the only reason the media exists at the moment is to be a thorn in the side of the Trump administration and attempt to hinder them from accomplishing their agenda. This, of course, isn’t too bright as this agenda will actually increase their liberty and prosperity.

The bottom line is, if the president is actually guilty of breaking the law and violating the Constitution while he’s in office, then sure, he deserves to be booted. Until he does something worthy of all this garbage, it’s time to let it go.

Americans, Still Trapped in Afghanistan, Plead with Biden Administration

The trouble in Kabul continues…

Published

on

Just because the news cycle is short and forgetful doesn’t mean that conditions are improving in stories that have fallen to the wayside.  This is just the new human attention span, and the marketing industry’s ability to hone in on the speed needed to stay ahead of your own thoughts.

And so, despite the unwillingness of the mainstream media to speak on the subject, there are still American citizens trapped under Taliban rule in Afghanistan, begging to be brought home.

Rep. Darrell Issa (R-CA) on Thursday released a letter to President Joe Biden penned by an American citizen from San Diego, California, who is still trapped in Afghanistan alongside his wife.

“I am pleading with you again as a fellow proud American and as a husband to help my wife and I get home from Afghanistan,” the American citizen wrote in the October 15 letter to President Biden, weeks after the Biden administration’s botched withdrawal from the Taliban-controlled country.

Their tale is harrowing.

The American explained that he and his wife risked their lives to get through Taliban checkpoints, only to discover that the October 4 flight was canceled “because passengers did not have visas for UAE, where the flight was to land.” Another flight left on October 11, but the American said they never received a call to go to the airport.

“The third scheduled for 13 October was apparently cancelled. We learned details of the latter flights from our Congressman, the Hon. Darrell Issa, who flew to Doha to meet us, and not from the DOS,” he continued, explaining these were not their only attempts made since August.

President Biden promised that US forces would remain in-country until each and every American can get home safely, but then abided by a Taliban deadline to evacuate, abandoning a great many Americans and our allied partners.

Authorities Confirm Identity of Remains Found in Search for Brian Laundrie

But are there more questions than answers still?

Published

on

Life is no fairy tale, that is for sure, and it certainly isn’t fair.

That seems to be the prevailing mood among those seeking justice for Gabby Petito after authorities in Florida made a stunning announcement on Thursday. 

The FBI confirmed Thursday that it had found the remains of Brian Laundrie, the 23-year-old fiancé of Gabby Petito and the only person of interest in her death.

In a statement, the FBI’s Denver field office, which has been leading the investigation, said a comparison of dental records confirmed that the human remains found in Carlton Reserve and the Myakkahatchee Creek Environmental Park in Sarasota County, Fla., on Wednesday were those of Laundrie.

Oddly, Brian’s parents were involved in the discovery of the items belonging to their son.

Steven Bertolino, an attorney for Laundrie’s parents, said police came to their North Port, Fla., home late Thursday afternoon to notify them.

On Wednesday, partial human remains, as well as a backpack and notebook belonging to Laundrie, were found along a trail in the Myakkahatchee park, which is adjacent to the 24,565-acre Carlton Reserve, where Laundrie’s parents told police they believed he was headed when they reported him missing last month.

Bertolino said on Wednesday that Laundrie’s parents had gone to the park to search for their son that morning and met with North Port police and the FBI.

“Chris and Roberta Laundrie went to the Myakkahatchee Creek Environmental Park this morning to search for Brian,” Bertolino said in a statement. “After a brief search of a trail that Brian frequented, some articles belonging to Brian were found.”

The news will come as a disappointment to those who hoped Laundrie would be captured and questioned regarding the death of his fiancée, but the mention of a “notebook” found near the body does offer some hope that some explanation could be forthcoming.
