The President’s Enemies Aren’t the Only Ones Vying for a Pound of Flesh

He never catches a single break.

Published

Sometimes, even on a Sunday, it can feel as though the whole world is your enemy…particularly if you’re the current President of these United States.

To be fair, Donald Trump has had the wind in the his face, so to speak, from the moment that he announced his run for office.  The liberal left was outraged, incensed even, when the republican simply annihilated Hillary Clinton in the electoral college, and turned to radicalization as a remedy for the threat they believed that he posed.  Now, every single move made by this man is subject to ridiculous scrutiny and opposition, simply because he isn’t Hillary.

And, to make matters worse, his enemies weren’t the only ones vying for a piece of flesh either, according to new revelations regarding long-time Trump lawyer Michael Cohen.

Attorney Michael Cohen recorded a conversation with President Trump before the election in which they discussed possible payments to a former Playboy model who claimed she slept with Trump, a source familiar with the investigation confirmed to Fox News.

The source told Fox News that no payment was ever made.

The New York Times first reported that the FBI seized the recording during a raid earlier this year on Cohen’s office as part of an investigation into the former Trump lawyer’s payments to women to shut down stories about his client leading up to the 2016 election — a practice known as “catch-and-kill.”

The conversation is said to involve a possible payment to Karen McDougal, who claims she had an affair with Trump in 2006, and took place two months before the election.

The Wall Street Journal reported in November 2016 that McDougal was paid $150,000 by American Media Inc. — the parent company to the National Enquirer — for the rights to the story, but it never ran. McDougal has sued AMI, alleging Cohen was secretly involved in those discussions. The lawsuit was settled in April.

This is pure filth on the part of Cohen, who has been under the thumb of Special Counsel Robert Mueller in recent weeks, as the former FBI Chief continues to search for anything resembling “collusion” between the Trump campaign and the Russian government.

So far, there has been nothing by way of evidence for “collusion”, and two already-wrapped congressional investigations seem to indicate that this is precisely the way this whole shebang will wrap up.  For now, Mueller is simply frying small fish to keep his paychecks rolling in.

Trump 2020 Campaign Fires McGhan’s Law Firm

Turnover is nothing new for the Trump White House.

One of the key players identified in the pages of the Mueller report is Don McGhan, former counsel to the President. McGhan’s name hasn’t previously been this far into the forefront, but a revelation from within Robert Mueller’s inconclusive dissertation regarding possible obstruction of justice by the President has made him nearly a household name. McGhan’s infamy arises from a passage in the report detailing his reaction to a question by President Trump regarding possible conflicts of interest that Robert Mueller and his team may have had. After McGhan’s insubordination became public knowledge with the release of Mueller’s epic tome, President Trump’s 2020 campaign team have decided to no longer retain legal services from his firm. The Trump campaign has hired its own in-house attorney for its 2020 reelection bid — shifting future business away from Jones Day, the law firm, that has represented Trump since his first run for president. Campaign officials and advisers cast the decision to hire Nathan Groth — a former lawyer for the Republican National Committee and Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker — as a money-saving move, supported by the businessman-turned-president who loves to cut costs. Here’s the kicker… But close Trump advisers say the decision also stems from disappointment with the White House’s former top attorney and current Jones Day partner, Don McGahn, whose behavior has irked the president and some of his family members. This certainly won’t surprise many within Trump’s inner circle, as his administration has been rife with turnover during the 2+ years since the President was inaugurated.

Trump Channels HBO Blockbuster to Troll Democrats After Mueller Report’s Release

The President’s tweet carried with it a lot of bravado…but was it premature?

Trump Twitter

The Mueller report has arrived, all 400+ pages of it, and the media at large is attempting to scour through it as quickly as possible at this early hour. Pundits are sitting around their special, “big news” sets, laptops ablaze like a well-lit Stonehenge, as these entertainers of “the news” attempt to breathlessly interpret the report in their own partisan language before the President and his lawyers speak on the subject. Trump, however, is a master media manipulator who will invariably get his point across, with or without the television media’s help. Such is that case today as the President piggybacked on the hype surrounding HBO’s Game of Thrones to bolster his base’s belief in him. https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/1118876219381026818 Critics of the President have been quick to point out that Mueller’s report specifically states that Congress is still able to work on the ten instances of “obstruction of justice” that the Special Counsel investigated, despite the President attempting to call “game over”. Attorney General Bill Barr said something quite different in a statement this morning. As for obstruction, Barr said that the report recounts 10 episodes involving Trump and “discusses potential legal theories for connecting these actions to elements of an obstruction offense.” But he said the White House “fully cooperated” with the investigation, and that he concluded that the evidence is not sufficient to establish an obstruction-of-justice offense by Trump. Regardless of whether you believe that President Trump is “exonerated” through this Mueller report, it would be foolish in any case to believe that this is “game over”…especially now that the democrats have a hold of this massive trove of information.
