COHEN’S BOMBSHELL: Trump Tower Moscow and The 2016 Campaign

For what seems like the 4th time in as many months, Michael Cohen has flipped.

For what seems like the 4th time in as many months, Michael Cohen has flipped.

Cohen, a former attorney for President Donald Trump, has been both the most enthusiastic cheerleader of Trump, and his worst enemy.  Cohen seemingly flips casually between these two characteristics whenever he so chooses, usually determined by what suits his own interests at the time.

Unfortunately for the world of lawyers, all of the famous ones tend to hold true to the slimy and sleazy stereotypes we as citizens bestow upon them in popular culture.  Cohen, along with fellow litigious sideshow performer Michael Avennatti, are just this generation’s examples.

Now, in Cohen’s latest blow to President Trump, the former fixer has told Special Counsel Robert Mueller that talks of a “Trump Tower Moscow” continued long into the 2016 campaign.

Donald Trump and his aides continued negotiations about a potential Trump Tower project in Moscow well into the 2016 presidential campaign, his ex-lawyer Michael Cohen acknowledged in a guilty plea in a New York federal court on Thursday.

Cohen admitted that he lied to Congress last year when he said that those discussions had ended in January 2016 and that his overtures to the Russian government went unrequited.

In fact, the talks continued through June, and Cohen did hear back from one of Russian President Vladimir Putin’s top aides, spokesman Dmitry Peskov, according to court documents.

For what it’s worth, the President displayed his signature indifference on the subject.

Trump told reporters at the White House on Thursday that Cohen is lying. But that even if Cohen weren’t lying, the president said, he hadn’t broken any law.

“There would be nothing wrong if I did do it,” he said.

Cohen’s relationship with the Robert Mueller investigation has been a tumultuous one, and may be one of the reasons that Americans as a whole are not fond of the probe.

As of December 10, 2019, Barack Obama has yet to endorse his former Vice President, Joe Biden, for POTUS. The two worked together to bring America down for nearly a full decade, but, still, Joe can’t get no love. What more do Democrats need to know about Biden? Are there any gaffes, racial or just plain ignorant, that he has yet to make? Has he ever done anything to benefit the United States during his decades in public service? Come on, people. When is enough enough? Get over the hatred of Trump so America can finally move forward. WATCH: Woah.

Steve Harvey most likely severely ticked off every liberal in America the other day. Funny enough, he didn’t even say a single word. All he had to do was roll his eyes. The timing was perfect. From Breitbart: In a clip shared widely on social media, Harvey is seen asking Miss South Africa, the competition’s winner, Zozibini Tunzi what future generations can do to “protect future generations from climate change.” WATCH: Steve Harvey with an all-time eye roll after asking the climate change question #MissUniverse2019 https://twitter.com/pdglenn/status/1203864941477924864?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1203864941477924864&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.breitbart.com%2Fentertainment%2F2019%2F12%2F09%2Fsteve-harvey-rolls-his-eyes-after-reading-climate-change-question-at-miss-universe-pageant%2F The 62-year-old comedian, who is a devout Christian, has never played by the rules demanded by the progressive left.
