RAID ON TRUMP’S LAWYER – ARTIST’S RENDITION
Yesterday, I suggested that the raid on Trump’s lawyer came at a very convenient – or should I say “COHENvenient” – time, what with Trump currently being pressured by a bunch of Jews to go to war for Israel.
So today they’re saying this is just a big coincidence – or should I say “COHENcidence” – and it just so happens that Trump’s lawyer was himself engaged in illegal activities, not necessarily directly related to anything to do with Trump.
However, they are seizing documents which relate to Trump, which has to mean that they got whatever paperwork was necessary to break attorney-client privilege, which is a huge deal, legally.
Michael Cohen, the longtime attorney of President Trump, is under federal investigation for possible bank fraud, wire fraud and campaign finance violations, according to three people with knowledge of the case.
FBI agents on Monday raided Cohen’s Manhattan office, home and hotel room as part of the investigation, seizing records about Cohen’s clients and personal finances. Among the records taken were those related to a 2016 payment Cohen made to adult-film star Stormy Daniels, who claims to have had a sexual encounter with Trump, according to a fourth person familiar with the investigation.
Investigators took Cohen’s computer, phone and personal financial records, including tax returns, as part of the search of his office at Rockefeller Center, that person said.
In a dramatic and broad seizure, federal prosecutors collected communications between Cohen and his clients — including those between the lawyer and Trump, according to both people.
The raids — part of an investigation referred by special counsel Robert S. Mueller III to federal prosecutors in New York — point to escalating legal jeopardy for a longtime Trump confidant who is deeply intertwined in the president’s business and personal matters.
Both the attorney’s attorney and Trump himself are not buying that this is not a Trump-related assault on a Trump affiliate.
At least they are publicly claiming they don’t buy that.
Stephen Ryan, an attorney for Cohen, called the tactics “inappropriate and unnecessary,” saying Cohen has “cooperated completely with all government entities, including providing thousands of non-privileged documents to the Congress and sitting for depositions under oath.”
Among the records seized by investigators were “protected attorney client communications,” Ryan said.
The aggressive tactics by prosecutors drew the president’s ire. As Trump sat down for dinner Monday with military leaders at the White House, he repeatedly called the raid “a disgrace,” railing that he and his administration are the subject of unfair, baseless and misguided investigations.
“I have this witch hunt constantly going on for over 12 months now or longer,” he said. “It’s an attack on our country in a true sense; it’s an attack on what we all stand for.”
At least he said “attack on our country.” Finally. Because that is what this is. It is a seditious conspiracy.
Revisiting his grievances about Mueller and Attorney General Jeff Sessions, Trump complained about what he suggested was a concerted and sometimes partisan effort to target his leadership. He noted that he has been urged to fire the special counsel, calling Mueller’s investigators “the most biased group of people.”
We know that they’re the most biased group of people.
Mueller recruited them all from the FBI group that was responsible for the conspiracy to cover-up the Hillary Clinton scandal. It is a cartoonishly biased group of people. It is literally all just a bunch of Democrat operatives.
But so far, none of the people they’ve gone after have done anything criminal related to anything to do with Trump. Poor Paul Manafort got prosecuted for a bunch of stuff that he did years before he even met Trump.
It’s just an infinite fishing expedition, and if there had been anything really damning relating to Michael Cohen – who was for a long time Trump’s top lawyer – that would have come a whole lot earlier on.
So what it appears to me is that they are raiding him for one to just keep this scandal going – gotta raid someone every once and a while to keep the thing looking as though it is legitimate, as if it is engaged in some kind of action other than just snooping around – and for another to snoop through a whole treasure trove of confidential Trump files that were in the possession of this lawyer. Number two is the big one.
If they’ve seized all the confidential communications between Trump and his lawyer, who the hell knows what’s in those?
This guy could have been meeting with aliens.
Seriously though – this was HIS MAIN LAWYER.
Meaning this is ALL HIS FILES.
This is FISHING WITH DYNOMITE.
And of course, it happens just right as they’re pressuring him to go to war.
Trump needs to fire Mueller, he needs to kick out all of these neocons, he needs to tell the truth about this Assad gassing being a hoax.
