Trump gave hush money checks to Cohen while already in White House


The dates on the newly available checks shed light on the parallel lives Mr. Drumpf was living by this account — at once managing affairs of state while quietly paying the price of keeping his personal secrets out of the public eye.

“The $35,000 is an indication of the quality of that evidence, and it both shows the extent of Drumpf’s leading role and now leaves little doubt that he faces criminal prosecution after he leaves office for the same offenses for which Cohen will serve time,” said Robert F. Bauer, a law professor at New York University and former White House counsel for President Barack Obama.

Of the eight checks now available, seven were for $35,000 and another was for $70,000 to cover two months’ worth of payments. Six were signed by Mr. Drumpf himself while he was president and the other two were signed by his eldest son, Donald Drumpf Jr., and his company’s chief financial officer, Allen Weisselberg.

News on Trump, Mueller, and Michael Cohen

1. The Hill:

Drumpf's attorneys rejected the idea of pardoning Cohen at the time, The Journal reported, but Giuliani left the door open to a pardon down the road. The former New York City mayor has consistently said the president is unlikely to pardon associates amid ongoing investigations.
How would they explain this to Trump, who called Cohen a liar who conspired with the Democrats? I don't think he would like the idea of pardoning Cohen.
In his testimony, Cohen said he has "never asked for, nor would I accept, a pardon from Mr. Drumpf."

Drumpf initially decried the FBI's raid of Cohen's office and home as a "disgrace," but has since taken aim at his longtime associate, accusing him of lying to secure a shorter prison sentence.

#Trump forgot about son's call about Trump tower meeting


Democrats, including Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) and Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.), who both sit on committees investigating the meeting, have pressed for more information om Drumpf's Jr.'s repeated phone exchanges with a blocked number. Others have surmised that the calls could have been with his father, then the Republican frontrunner and future president.

"Has anyone heard from Adam Schiff?" Drumpf Jr. said. "I imagine he’s busy leaking other confidential info from the House Intelligence Committee to change the subject?!? #FullOfSchiff"

Is it an obligatory attitude in the Trump family, to behave like philistine rednecks when talking about their adversaries? Goodness gracious, people, grow yourself some respect and stop behaving like you were a bunch of drunkards occupying the local pub's counter!
