Falling down: How the Trump-Cohen relationship crumbled

Falling down: How the Trump-Cohen relationship crumbled

President Donald Trump unloaded on the media, the FBI and his own attorney general in a Saturday morning Twitter rant - saying he "may have to get involved" in the investigations into the 2016 presidential campaign.

A Cincinnati newspaper is making unwanted headlines after being mistaken for the National Enquirer, the supermarket tabloid whose safe is said to be holding damaging stories about President Trump. Trump has denied having sex with Daniels or McDougal.

Weisselberg then sent the invoice to another Trump Organization executive via e-mail directing him to "Please pay from the Trust".

Mr. Cohen, who arranged hush-money payments before the November, 2016, US presidential election to at least two women who had said they had sex with Mr. Trump, pleaded guilty on Tuesday to campaign finance violations and other charges. CNN also did not publish the interview on their YouTube channel.

In an extraordinary new clash between the president and the nation's top law enforcement official, whom Trump appointed and who was one of the president's earliest and most enthusiastic 2016 supporters, Sessions had issued the warning a day earlier after Trump alleged in a "Fox & Friends" interview that his AG never "took control" of the DOJ.

The legal system dumped two political hazards this week on Trump. Similarly, Trump flipped from fury that Cohen's offices were raided to claiming that he and Cohen were never all that close.

The Cohen investigation was referred to federal prosecutors in NY by U.S. Special Counsel Robert Mueller, who is looking into Russian interference in the 2016 election and possible coordination between Trump's Republican campaign and Russian officials. However, his comments come as the Justice Department this week secured a trial conviction and a guilty plea, respectively, from Trump's former campaign chairman Paul Manafort and the President's longtime fixer, Michael Cohen.

In regards to Taiwan , the reports warns that China "is likely preparing for a contingency to unify Taiwan with China by force". The US military regularly seeks to demonstrate freedom of navigation by flying over the South China Sea .


First, he bashed Cohen, Davis and the "Fake News Media" over the questions surrounding the infamous Trump Tower meeting his son, Donald Trump Jr., took with a Russian attorney he believed to have dirt on Clinton.

"Every president deserves an attorney general they have confidence in", Trump said, quoting Graham.

Despite what Trump has claimed, it makes no difference that he later reimbursed Cohen for his contribution. It was only after the crisis for the Trump campaign created by the release of the "Access Hollywood" tape later in October 2016 that Cohen suddenly developed an urgent desire to buy the former porn star's silence.

It is true that, as White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders repeated several times Wednesday afternoon, Trump has not been charged with any crime.

"I think firing Jeff Sessions would concerns us all that would be the first domino".

That's what Peter Stris had to say about the news that National Enquirer CEO David Pecker was granted immunity by federal prosecutors on Thursday in exchange for information about a payoff of his former client Karen McDougal.
