“A couple of very bad ones came out and it’s called pay-for-play and some of these were really, really bad — and illegal. If it’s true, it’s illegal. You’re paying and you’re getting things” – Donald J. Trump (August 2016)
Michael Cohen, the personal lawyer and attorney for the President Donald J. Trump is in a sea of trouble. If he ever thought he was in it, he is now, it isn’t enough that his hotel-room, his home and office was raided by the FBI, by agents sent by the Southern District of New York (SDNY). Therefore, the Special Counsel Robert Mueller are looking through the evidence and the findings, as the collecting of building a great case is going-on. Cohen and his clients should worry, that being Boidy, Hannity and Trump.
That is evident now, as the revelations are coming, the documentations are showing the reality of the dealing of the attorney. The personal attorney of Trump, Cohen has used his position as the closest partner of the President done business agreements to secure help for corporations, like AT&T, Columbus Nova & Novartis. All paid for him being their business consultant, however, what sort of insider deals he could offer them is questionable. If you ever wondered what money does in politics. This is the reason why you try to disconnect that. Since Cohen was paid by these companies to serve their interests. By being the middle-man to the President.
These deals was done early in the start of the Trump Administration, to secure their interests. None of these companies would have paid Cohen, his company Essential Consultants LLC or anything else for services, unless they would be rendered. This is clearly money under table to secure needed help and change from the government, if that was being Columbus Nova, whose used the connection to try to get Russian Sanctions gone, while AT&T wanted to lobby their merger deal with Time Warner. Clearly, the last one will be soured by this, but the Russian sanctions will be on standby, as this government are not wishing to follow a collective Congress to add on more sanctions on the Russian Federation.
However, you can wonder what the pharmacy company Novatis would get out of this, and if the big-pharmaceutical company would get anything out of hiring Cohen. Unless, it would to secure that the government wouldn’t stop the high prices and the lack of oversight, concerning the opioid crisis in the Republic. Then I would understand why the Administration has lacked any courage to find any real remedy, as the striking epidemic isn’t battled head-on.
Cohen, has been using a system that is well-known, that Trump himself attacked Clinton’s for, which is called pay-for-play. Where you pay for services and that gets delivered by someone as an elected official. This is what is now evident with the Trump Administration, as they have used Essential Consultation and Cohen to get deals and agreements to figure out ways to get their needed itch scratched. If that was a merger, lacking Russian sanctions or even keeping the opioid crisis at steady levels. Because of all of this is good for business. So Cohen and Trump get funds and the companies get possible vast fortunes by the political help.
That the AT&T calls it a big-mistake today, is just shambolic, they wouldn’t have disclosed this or said anything unless several investigations into the Presidency and his men wouldn’t have been a thing. That Cohen and Russian Probe is going on, that the Stormy Daniels are appearing and even the start of the fall of Attorney General Eric Schneiderman, which is also for some reason connected to Cohen. Who knows what sort of mess Cohen has not involved himself into.
Cohen is at a stormy sea, that is not only Avenatti who relentlessly finds ways to undress the king and his loyal servant. However, this will not go on forever, even as the madness of the problematic connections and inside dealings that Cohen has been involved in. We don’t know how much he has done and how much he taken from these companies. Not even knowing how much of the cut the President has taken. Because the greed of Trump is known and he has no scruples. That is why he has billed foundations and charity events at his Golf Courses to high-rates, because he only cares about the buck, not the people.
Cohen knows this, it is clearly, that the companies that has now been connected with Essential Consultant LLC will regret it. I called them the New York Gang when they came into power and don’t regret today, because the Trump Administration has been the most corrupt in modern history. The misuse of funds, the use of lobbyist for favors in the cabinet, by members, that even Representatives are making acts against using government planes for private travels. That shows the disregard of the use of public funds for private pleasure, that is if travel to Disney Land, Fort Knox or anywhere else, buying exclusive kitchen-wear or even securing all phone-calls in a specialized phone booths. This isn’t from a novel, but the reality of the Trump Administration. Therefore, that his personal lawyer and close associate Cohen would use the trick of “pay to play” isn’t that surprising, as the whole model of this government. Is that donors and PACs are steering the agenda, economically and also policy wise. Therefore, they are awaiting returns on their investment, in this instance their aren’t, but in others they have gotten points on their dollars.
Michael Cohen is in a massive storm, the sea is still vicious and if he will come easily to the harbor, that is unknown. What we do know, is that as the investigations goes on. His fate is uncertain. Cohen cannot say this is a easy wind and will go away quickly. That is far from true, because he had to have something profound in his capacity for the SDNY to raid his offices. They wouldn’t do that if he didn’t have something they couldn’t get otherwise.
Cohen, Trump will not save you, he will only save himself. You are in big, big, big trouble. In big cases running in different states for various of reasons. They will not just go away.
Even your boss said what you did is illegal, so you knew what your were doing. He did too and he accepted it. Because it was easy money. Peace.
“Slander is the revenge of a coward, and dissimulation of his defense” – Samuel Johnson
This story just continue to blow into the face of the President. Surely the minutes spent with Stormy Daniels aka Stephanie Clifford must really feel like a blow-job today. Because nothing can feel lie headache as this is. The attorney for Stormy Daniels is really a renegade fighter, whose not letting the chips fall down and give space for the President. Donald J. Trump has again created trouble for himself.
What so powerful is that Twitter Account of the President is used against him. It is really something else, that his own unhinged narratives and trying to steer the airways are now hitting him wrong in the halls of justice. That is really priceless, that a man so off the hook with no bounds of slander or hearsay, that usually get away with anything. Now has met his match, an Attorney who clearly knows how to hold himself and also get the worst out of the President.
This here is quoted from the document today:
“20. Ms. Clifford has suffered damage as a result of Mr. Trump’s false and defamatory statement in an amount to be proven at trial but in excess of $75,000” (…) “21. Plaintiff restates and re-alleges each and every allegation in Paragraphs 1 through 20 above as if fully set forth herein. 22. On or about April 18, 2018, Mr. Trump made the above mentioned false statement regarding Ms. Clifford, her account of the 2011 threatening incident, and the sketch of the man who threatened her: “A sketch years later about a nonexistent man. A total con job, playing the Fake News Media for Fools (but they know it)!” 23. Mr. Trump’s statement was made in writing online and released by Mr. Trump with the intent that it be widely disseminated and repeated. Indeed, Mr. Trump knows that his personal Twitter account has an audience of over 50 million followers and that the Twitter post would be repeated and reported upon by other news and media outlets online, in print, and on television and radio” (…) “Moreover, by calling the incident a “con job” Mr. Trump’s statement would be understood to state that Ms. Clifford was fabricating the crime and the existence of the assailant, both of which are prohibited under New York law, as well as the law of numerous other states” (…) “In making the defamatory statement identified herein, Mr. Trump acted with malice, oppression, or fraud, and is thus responsible for punitive damages in an amount to be proven at trial according to proof” (Michael J. Avenatti – ‘Case 1:18-cv-03842 Document 1 Filed 04/30/18’).
This here is really a smart move, as the judge already put the other trial on hold for 90 days, as the raid on Attorney Michael Cohen and his evidence are been looked at. This is a way to keep her case going and also pushing for other trials, to really glue the President within the chambers of law. Even if it get dismissed, they are clearly showing power and cleverness to pull in the President. As he cannot just say whatever, without being accountable to the law. Since he says whatever to get away with lies and deception.
Therefore, Avenatti deserves credit for this move. It would be a patch of hurt, if the damages would be paid, but the former Porn-Star are now key plaintiff against the President. She did really well hiring this lawyer. Clearly, he got game and there is nothing stopping him. That is why this suit of the President is interesting. The Mueller investigation is of larger scale and more vital to the Republic, however, this is more damaging for the President’s ego. Peace.
That Michael Cohen, the Personal Attorney to the United States President Donald J. Trump, feels violated is natural, that Trump feels bad about it too. That is also all natural, they don’t want the republic to know their dirty work, neither the Tax-Returns or anything else that the Trump Organization has tried to keep a secret. The Russian Probe is going into major field, with the raid of the personal lawyer of Trump.
The indictments of the past year and the plea agreements will fellow former Trump Aides are important, as the Special Counsel Robert Mueller Investigation is building a solid case to bring to court, not just circumstantial evidence, but proof of unlawful behavior by the Trump Campaign and the Trump Organization. That will now be exposed as the Trump Lawyer has been raided after Search Warrant was issued from the Southern District of New York (SDNY).
That Cohen feels under fire is to be expected, as he has tried to get his own stuff review and evaluated for the prospects of standing charged in court. So he knows what documents the state does have or not. The SDNY has dismissed this as a way of stalling the investigation. Yet another proof, that the Trump Lawyer and Trump Organization haven’t been that transparent. That they ones investigated haven’t delivered the complied documents and communications, since the state saw it necessary to raid his office, hotel and electronic devices.
The good thing with it all, was that the Court denied the Motion of Cohen, so that the SDNY can look into the Stormy Daniels situation and all the other running court cases that is in the making. Even copy and file the evidence that can be used by the Russian Probe. This was hitting the heart of the Trumpland. A place that the President cannot touch right now, unless he wants to further obstruct justice to save his own face for a minute.
The New York Gang which has resides in the Trump Tower in Manhattan should worry. As Paul Manafort, Richard Gates, Michael Flynn, Carter Paige, George Papadopoulos and Alex Van Der Zwaan. The list goes on people who has been connected with Russia and many been indicted. The likes of Gates, Flynn and Papadopoulos have already a plea deal and collaborate with the investigation. While Manafort and Van Der Zwaan are still deep in the spotlight as the investigation goes further.
If Donald Trump Junior goes on Fox News and calls it a ‘Nothing Burger’ now, he certainly doesn’t know what nothing looks like. Unlike he talking about the nothing of marriages that has gone bonkers. Well, that was a sidetrack, but the New York Gang is feeling the pressure, the President continues to pound on it all. Claim witch-hunt and attack the FBI who are conducting the investigation. That must be, because the basis of investigation and the levels of knowledge of the operations from the Trump Organization, the Trump Tower and the Trump Campaign is coming into full-play.
That the Trump’s should fear this, they should, because who knows what sort of details and transactions, what sort of communications Cohen has kept on his devices. What was striking in the documents delivered to the court was this quote: “The searches are the result of a months-long investigation into Cohen, and seek evidence of crimes, many of which have nothing to do with his work as an attorney, but rather related to Cohen’s own business dealings”. We can just imagine what they can be, but that means the indications and the proof of shady deals and such is already in the works. So that the FBI could secure a Warrant to cease documents and raid his offices and hotel.
This is far from over, the stories will be coming, the New York Gang doesn’t sleep, but the net around them is getting closer to the boss on the top. More and more people are connected and the net is catching more evidence on the way. We will know for sure, but the Mueller Investigation will shed light into darkness, show what can be proof of evidence of criminal activity by the gang.
The New York Gang should fear this and they are, if not, the President wouldn’t be so furious and mad on Twitter and in statements. We just have to see how this continues. But the ones saying this is nothing, is lying to you. The state wouldn’t raid an Attorney’s Office without anything suspicious activity, that had to be sealed by the justice in Court before it was issued. Therefore, the many of his own business deals can be seen as questionable, also as the Attorney for the President and his own company. That is why the Cohen raid shows how much evidence the state has now on the Trump Organization and even on the Trump Campaign. Peace.
