Trump Speaks Out About Cohen Guilty Plea, Trolls Him on Twitter

Published

Michael Cohen, President Donald Trump’s former personal lawyer has officially decided to “flip” on the commander-in-chief by pleading guilty to knowingly violating campaign finance law at the direction of a federal candidate by his paying $280,000 in “hush money” to porn star Stormy Daniels and former Playboy model Karen McDougal with the intent of influencing an election.

Trump bypassed an opportunity to issue any sort of statement on the guilty plea at a rally he held in West Virginia on Tuesday evening, however he finally broke his silence on Twitter by trolling Cohen in typical Trump fashion.

“If anyone is looking for a good lawyer, I would strongly suggest that you don’t retain the services of Michael Cohen!” he wrote. And that’s it.

As Trump trolls his “fixer”-turned-archnemesis, Cohen is looking to raise some cash, his lawyer Lanny Davis launching a GoFundMe account Wednesday with the goal of raising $500,000 to cover his expenses while he courageously battles dark forces to finally “tell the truth about Donald Trump.”

Cohen’s crusade to “tell the truth” follows a headline-grabbing day in front of a judge in which he pleaded guilty to a total of eight charges: “five counts of tax evasion; one count of making false statements to a financial institution; one count of willfully causing an unlawful corporation contribution; and one count of making an excessive campaign contribution at the request of a candidate.”

While Trump didn’t reference Cohen’s plea at the rally Tuesday night, on his way to the rally he vaguely commented on the cases against Cohen and his former campaign manager Paul Manafort — who was found guilty on 8 of 18 charges on Tuesday, none of which were related to Trump’s campaign — telling reporters, “This has nothing to do with Russian collusion. This is a witch hunt, and it’s a disgrace.”

It doesn’t appear, at the moment, that President Trump is all that concerned about Cohen’s “flipping” on him, sticking to his side of the story and continuing to press that this is nothing more than a witch hunt by folks who just want to see him booted from office.

The media and folks at all levels of society and culture have seemingly made it their life’s ambition to try and destroy the Trump administration, specifically focusing lots of their resources on the Stormy Daniels fiasco and the Russia collusion nonsense.

It’ll be interesting to see how this all plays out in the days ahead, but the one thing we know for certain is that Trump isn’t afraid, so why should we be?

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.
