Stormy Daniels Had The Most Savage Response To Michael Cohen's Guilty Plea

Does Trump know that the White House counsel is not his personal attorney

"There is no allegation of any wrongdoing against the president in the government's charges against Mr. Cohen", he said. In the plea agreement, Trump is not mentioned by name but referred to as "Individual-1".

"I participated in this conduct, which on my part took place in Manhattan, for the principal objective of influencing the [2016] election", Cohen said.

Trump was more complimentary of Cohen before his long-time attorney began talking to prosecutors. Meaning, he didn't pay off two women alleging affairs with Trump out of the goodness of his heart and then not report it. There would presumably be no bar against charging a president after he or she leaves the White House.

He added that Cohen, who once said he would "take a bullet" for Trump, had a change of heart after watching Trump be "reckless" as president.

Democratic Senate leader Chuck Schumer, speaking on the Senate floor on Wednesday, labelled Mr Trump a "co-conspirator" and demanded that the confirmation hearing for Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, which is scheduled for early September, be delayed in the wake of Cohen's plea.

After initially denying knowledge of the hush money, Trump was heard on a 2016 recording made by Cohen that appears to show Trump was informed of at least one of the payments.

Working out of a Trump Tower office next to his boss, Cohen likely has vast knowledge of the inner workings of Trump's empire, his business dealings and his campaign.

The White House insisted Trump was not concerned "at all" that Cohen might implicate the United States president by cooperating with Mueller. Manafort is the only one who didn't take a plea deal, and a big unanswered question is: Why?

While many of us are clinging to the hope that this will actually reap consequences upon our seemingly impenetrable president, for Daniels, Cohen's guilty plea has an extra dose of schadenfreude.




"It is clear that, as the prosecutor noted, Mr Cohen's actions reflect a pattern of lies and dishonesty over a significant period of time", attorney Rudy Giuliani said.

The consistent targeting of Cohen's credibility might be driven by concern over what he knows.

That raised the question of whether Cohen would cooperate, and, crucially, what his cooperation would be worth.

'On July 2, 2018, Michael Cohen declared his independence from Donald Trump and his commitment to tell the truth, ' the page reads.

The president has repeatedly voiced frustration that Attorney General Jeff Sessions has been unwilling to intervene into investigations into Trump and his allies, including the ongoing special counsel probe into possible collusion between his campaign and Russian Federation.

Trump, on Twitter, maintained otherwise, saying, "Michael Cohen plead guilty to two counts of campaign finance violations that are not a crime". He added, "Such respect for a fearless man!"

During a rally in West Virginia Tuesday night, Trump slammed Manafort's conviction as a "disgrace" and contended that it had "nothing to do with Russian collusion".

"The developments of today will permit us to have the stay lifted in the civil case & should also permit us to proceed with an expedited deposition of Trump under oath about what he knew, when he knew it, and what he did about it", Avenatti tweeted.
