FoxNews (getting in on the "sources say" avalanche) has "confirmed" a personal attorney of Trumps who was active (a little bit) in the Trump Campaign has been subpoenaed to testify in front of A House intelligence committee.

The man named Michael Cohen has allegedly had dealings with some "Russian/Ukraine" operations !!


House intel subpoenas Trump's personal attorney

A House intelligence committee staffer said the panel has issued a subpoena to President Trump's personal attorney, Michael Cohen, as part of its ongoing investigation into Russia's election meddling, Fox News confirmed.


The person spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss internal committee matters.


Cohen is a former Trump Organization executive who served as a cable television surrogate for the Republican during the presidential campaign.

Good. Hope it public testimony. It needs some people to go on TV and laugh at the hysteria.

If this is true, it's going to be bad for Trump. Lawyers are the one's who pave the way for all the dirty money and teach people how to launder it.

Uhoh....They wouldn't even bother to subpoena him if they didn't have intel pointing to relevant russiagate connections.

Wanna bet Jared is looking for a safe place about now?

You guys really need to step up your deflection and rationalization game or Trumps gonna fire the lot of you!

What happened to attorney-client privilege?

ETA: The investigation has become so widespread, so quickly, I'm wondering if this isn't actually a good sign for Trump: perhaps investigators are looking at people like Kushner, finding nothing to warrant further investigation, and moving on to the next person on the list. After all, out of all the leaked "contacts," we've yet to hear of anything that would actually be against the law, even if it was true.

It says in the OP that the lawyer himself has had dealings with Russia/Ukraine. They will ask him about his personal dealings and therefore attorney-client privilege doesn't apply.

Well in that case the Trump Tower janitor will likely be next...

Sure it does.

He was acting as a lawyer for a client at the time.

They asked for documentation.
He's denying the request.

Sometimes congress will fish when they don't know if documentation exists.
Sometimes people so mandated by congress will deny the existence of documentation for that reason.
Its a game they play until subpoenas are issued. Next step.

I'm totally expecting that at some point. When they start subpoenaing the doctor who does Trump's prostate exam, you'll know the investigation is finally winding down.

I remember someone else who played that game. She got away with it so evidently it works.

So he was acting on Trump's behalf as a private lawyer that " helped to broker a Ukraine peace plan that would call for Russian troops to withdraw from Ukraine and a referendum to let Ukrainians decide whether the part of the country seized by Russian in 2014 should be leased to Moscow"?

Interesting. No wonder they want to talk with him. Some folks may be in trouble here.

Crimea is officially Russia territory. Russia ain't leasing from Ukraine unless the US fights WW3 with Russia over Crimea.

Subpeona's can be issued for information. There does not have to be proof of any crime to issue one.

Not so much. Pleading the 5th and attorney client privlidge means this too hits a stone wall. All of this is just a delaying tactic. Trump knows enough people they can do investigations till the next election.

No dumbie, he was acting as a lawyer for a different client.



It's all privileged just the same.

Watch and see.

What's funny to me is that if you believe the Russian story the establishment benefits. If you disbelieve the story the establishment benefits. The punchline is that it's ok with all of you.

Sorry suckers. Hope you're entertained thoroughly.
