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

He never catches a single break.

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.

K-Mac Drops the Hammer on Mad Max with Official Censure

Kevin McCarthy isn’t playing around anymore.

Maxine Waters

On Capitol Hill this week, there has been turbulence once again. This time, instead of a riotous mob looking to storm the building and create chaos intended to derail our government, the trouble comes from California Congresswoman Maxine Waters, whose suggestion that Americans need to be “more confrontational” in their opinions on the Derek Chauvin trial has been widely lambasted as an inappropriate call to arms at a time in which our nation is already suffering from uncouth bouts of political violence. For her troubles, Waters is now facing censure. House GOP leader Kevin McCarthy told Breitbart News exclusively that he will move to formally censure House Financial Services Committee chairwoman Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) over her call to violence in Minnesota this weekend. McCarthy’s move, which comes after House Speaker Nancy Pelosi refused to hold Waters accountable, will force a censure vote in the House. Pelosi cannot stop McCarthy’s resolution censuring Waters from receiving a vote, because it is a privileged resolution. If Democrats lose just three of their members on this vote and all Republicans vote for it, then Waters will be formally censured by the House and likely lose her powerful position as chair of the Financial Services Committee. This is certainly not Waters’ first foray into violent rhetoric. The Democratic stalwart had suggested that her constituents seek out conservatives and make them feel “not welcome” during a speech in 2018.  Over the next several days, Democratic operatives verbally harassed a number of prominent GOP women, shouting them out of public spaces.
