Stormy Daniels, Trump and the power of telling the truth – NBC News

Stephanie Clifford also known as Stormy Daniels along with her attorney, Michael Avenatti, May well be the Catalyst that causes the Trump ship to sink. I wasn’t of this opinion right away. I thought Playboy model Karen McDougal was more believable in her interview with Anderson Cooper than was Stormy Daniels. But both women need to be given credit because dare truth was absolutely the truth. At the end of the day everything they both have said about their dealings with Trump have been corroborated by multiple individuals.

with Trump we’re dealing with an individual who thinks he and he alone is above the law. This was something that was clear from the time he tried to get out of going to Vietnam for the lame reason that he had bone spurs. And through his history as a failed developer he cheated his way through every business deal. He’s a cheat and got into the White House by cheating and now the American people know that. What to me was more important than anything that happened this week was the interview with the juror in the Paul manafort case that wanted Paul manafort to be innocent but said that he wasn’t and the evidence was overwhelming. She confessed to wear a make America great again hat to the courthouse. But she left her hat in the car and brought her citizenship into the courtroom. I believe this is giving a lot of people out there validation and the ability to walk away from Trump and his lies.

“Did They Think I Was Just Going to Roll Over and Die?”: The Cohen vs. Trump Battle Ratchets Up – Vanity Fair

It’s funny how politics can make you switch allegiances. Take me for example, when James Comey came out and did that thing in October reigniting the so-called email scandal I was furious at him. Now he’s telling people to vote democratic, am I supposed to like them now?

Michael Cohen, the thug that has had the moniker of Donald Trump’s fixer for the last 15 years he’s not one of my favorite people on the planet. Now he’s trying to save his skin. He’s painting himself as a family man one who cares about his children and wants to watch them grow up and not do so from a prison cell. Hey, I’m a human being I understand completely that sentiment. The problem is when you sell your soul to the devil, the Devil comes and get your soul when it’s time. Michael Cohen can claim to be this new person hell-bent on making sure Donald Trump gets his but in the grand scheme of things Michael corn deserves everything he is going to get.

Prosecutors in Michael Cohen case piecing together shredded documents from raid – NBC News

I am a blogger, and I am in no way a reporter. So what I say is purely speculation. But I can see in my head what must have happened in the minutes as the feds swarms into Michael Collins offices and homes. Shredding of documents must have been frenetic. So it’s not much of a surprise that the federal authorities are having problems putting the shredded materials back together. Unfortunately for Michael corn, who by the way is a terrible attorney, the federal government has Apple resources back together shredded documents. A good attorney would never have documents that needed to be shredded before a federal raid.

Giuliani: Trump repaid Cohen $130,000 for Stormy Daniels hush agreement – POLITICO

What a relief, for those of us, who believed that there was a chance that Michael Cohen and his family would be put out on the street due to the second mortgage he took out on his house or home. Well now we know the president paid him back for the hush money regarding the self-described pornstar Stormy Daniels.

Michael Avenatti, Stephanie Clifford aka Stormy Daniels attorney, must be playing four dimensional chess against Rudy Giuliani who I doubt knows how to play checkers. This cannot be a wonderful night at the White House. Not only does this implicitly say that the president paid off a pornstar but most likely means that he also slept with her. I cannot imagine how much Sadness the first lady must be feeling.

I wonder if this is another case of the White House throwing Michael Cohen under the bus? It certainly makes them seem less sympathetic now that he’s been paid back the money.
