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.
