New Report Says Manhattan DA Mulling Over Legal Action Against Trump Organization

Published

A new report is stating that the Manhattan district attorney’s office might be getting ready to file criminal charges against the Trump Organization and two senior company officials over the alleged “hush money” paid to two women by the president’s former attorney, Michael Cohen.

The money was paid to porn star Stormy Daniels and and a former Playboy model in order for these individuals to keep silent about fairs they claim to have had with Trump.

The payment to Daniels was recorded as a legal expense. But Cohen said on Tuesday that he paid Daniels in 2016 so she would not speak publicly about her alleged past affair with Trump. According to federal prosecutors, the payment to Daniels was for fake monthly invoices for $35,000 “pursuant to retainer agreement.”

As Fox News reported, “It’s illegal to willfully make a false entry in a business record with intent to deceive. It’s a felony if the false record was made in an attempt to conceal or commit another crime.”

Despite the fact that Trump has spoken about pardoning people who have worked for him who face federal charges, he cannot pardon people and corporate entities convicted of state crimes.

In the current federal case against Cohen, court papers reveal he ultimately received $420,000 from the Trump Organization to reimburse him for his $130,000 payment to Daniels. The Washington Post reported, “Trump executives decided Cohen should be paid more than he sought — an additional $360,000 for expenses and other fees and taxes, plus a $60,000 bonus, prosecutors said.”

Again, it really seems like the left is going pedal to the metal here in their attempt to try shutting down the president, his administration, and their agenda. The kind of scrutiny they have placed Trump under is the same level of scrutiny that former President Barack Obama should’ve been placed under too, but since he was their golden boy who could do no wrong, that never happened.

We’ll just have to wait and see the impact this week’s development with Cohen has on Trump’s future.

Secret Service Shamed After Drunk Agents Assault Cab Driver in South Korea

There is a history of poor behavior from the Secret Service during Democratic administrations.

You can tell a lot about a White House by the extracurricular nonsense that hits the press surrounding it.

For instance, after one of President Joe Biden’s dogs began biting random people on the grounds, we started hearing murmurs of just how terse and stressful the place had become, with dog behavior experts suggesting that the mood at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue might have a lot to do with the aggression.

This week, the Biden administration beget more bad behavior, but this time it wasn’t from one of the First Pets.

Two U.S. Secret Service agents in South Korea were sent stateside ahead of President Biden’s arrival following their involvement in an off-duty alcohol-related incident.

The two agents, whose identities have not been made public, are on their way back to Washington, D.C. where they will face disciplinary action, a source familiar with the matter told Fox News.

Both agents apparently became intoxicated while not on duty. One of the agents then got into an altercation with a cab driver.

There could be more trouble coming, as well.

In South Korea, officials send mediators to the scene of low-level disputes and then determine if criminal charges would be filed.

One of the agents was interviewed by authorities and no charges have been filed.

The government released one of its usual, dry, boilerplate-esque missives.

“The Secret Service is aware of an off-duty incident involving two employees which may constitute potential policy violations,” USSS chief spokesman Anthony Guglielmi told Fox News. “We have very strict protocols and policies for all employees and we hold ourselves to the highest professional standards.”

There is a history of poor behavior from the Secret Service during Democratic administrations, with a notable incident having occurred in 2012, involving Barack Obama’s agents and a Colombian prostitute.
