boring

probably end up being fake news

this lawyer how did he get the info?

it doesn't matter

I don't care

the new world order thugs are a bigger threat to me than Trump they are the ones who have been in power they are responsible for all of the suffering


Also, note the story dropping on the day Trump makes headlines for keeping yet another promise (and aside from the bluster from liberals, he's getting credit for it). I dare say Mueller did question this Oligarch, but as they detained him at the airport weeks ago, the questioning would have happened then.

Here is the same story from 5 weeks ago:
nypost.com...

These liberal folk think we're just going to believe their discredited narratives. They haven't learned a thing in two years of this BS.

I think it was Rudy Giuliani who said over the weekend that fake news is being released to certain media outlets, to keep them engaged with this story.

Maybe to make them look even stupider when Bob Mueller issues his Trump-Russia collusion report.

Oh right. I thought Mueller handed the Cohen investigation off because it was nothing to do with the Russia collusion investigation? Or was that last week's story.


Huh? This has nothing to do with Mueller or the US Attorney for SDNY's/FBI's investigation. The information came from Michael Avenatti, lawyer for Stormy Daniels.


I can't keep up with your propaganda.


It's never once stopped you from speaking out of ignorance though so... kudos?


Actually, it's an old story rehashed by Stormy's lawyer, but do carry on.

So this is becoming less and less about Daniels/Trump. IF there was illegality between Cohen, his company and varying clients, wouldn't this fall back onto Mueller?

We're almost full circle here with the weakest link being Mueller.

Just watching this tool speak triggers my BS detector.


Who? Trump?


So just because it is a lawyer saying it's true we should believe it without proof?


I'm not telling you what to believe. If it's not true, Michael Cohen could in turn sue Avenatti for libel.

Also, just breaking: CNN is reporting that they have confirmation that AT&T has in fact made payments to Cohen. According to the reporting, AT&T hired Cohen for "insights" into Trump.

Starting to sound like I was right in the OP: Cohen was essentially peddling influence to Trump.

So a Russian company paid Trump's lawyer 500k so he could pay 130k to keep a porn star quite. I always knew the Russians did it!!!

Fisrt off, if Cohen was lobbying for a foreign government without disclosing, he should be held accountable.

What I find strange is that sometimes this law is applied, and other times it isnt. Oh and by that I mean when trump connected people violate it, they are rightfully charged (like manafort). But when Hillary connected people do it (like the podesta group) they are politely asked to retroactively fill out paperwork and not charged.

Weird how that works isnt it?

Secondly, you say that this $500 thousand seems like it could be for lobbying?

Yep someone getting half a million from russians should be looked in to, I have no disagreement there.

Oh thats right! This again only applies to Trump connected people!

When Bill Clinton secretly meant with Putin himself, then in the following weeks got half a million dollars from russian state banks, that was no big deal at all!

I mean, for me, I say investigate them all.

But it seems like for the anti trump crowd, its one set of rules for trump connected people, and a different set for everyone else.

The funds, Avenatti suggested, may have been used to reimburse Cohen for the $130,000 hush payment made to Daniels in exchange for her silence about an alleged affair with Trump. Intrater was also a donor to the Republican National Committee, where Cohen served as a deputy finance chairman. In June 2017, Intrater donated $35,000 to a joint fundraising committee for the RNC and Trump’s reelection campaign. He also gave a quarter-million dollars to Trump’s inaugural committee. (Previously, Intrater gave only to Democrats like Gov. Bill Richardson and Sen. Ted Kennedy.) Intrater and Vekselberg have also been active investors in the U.S. technology and media sectors. Columbus Nova Technology Partners was the first and only outside investor in Gawker Media, before the company was felled by a lawsuit funded by Trump ally Peter Thiel. Columbus Nova also backed the record label of former Def Jam boss Lyor Cohen, invested in the streaming music pioneer Rhapsody, and put money behind a gig-economy site, a “genetic risk” firm, and a company called Tomfoolery Incorporated.


You know this Michael Avenatt guy is pretty interesting. He and Stormy came out of nowhere here.

There are so many conspiratorial possibilities here its head spinning.


Another thing Trump seems to be afraid of Michael Avenatti. I can't recall any blistering Tweets about him

It may be just bluster from him but he predicts Trump's downfall soon.

It's interesting he brings in the Russians in on this at this time...The possible conspiracy here is that he may be the Russian blackmail response to Trump for his actions in Syria and sanctions.

In other words, the Russians somehow unleashed him on Trump.

Yep, and then the OP has the nerve to lament the fact that he is not believed.
The sad thing is that some people will actually believe that some whore who Trump may have slept with a decade ago is linked to ...wait for it.... RUSSIA!

Here is another piece that stems from the info you have provided.

nymag.com...

Apparently there were two NDA's/payoffs and the second was coming from the same players and lawyers.

It goes in to speculation and theories that I have no opinion on as of yet, but it's interesting how this is evolving.

Not really. It's rather telegraphed if you look into some details of his background.


While in college and later in law school, Michael worked at a political opposition research and media firm run by Rahm Emanuel (who later became White House Chief of Staff and is presently the Mayor of Chicago). During his time there, Michael worked on over 150 campaigns in 42 states, including multiple gubernatorial and congressional campaigns (i.e. Joe Biden’s U.S. Senate Campaign).

Why is Time Warner (CNN) doing business with businesses that have ties to Russians?

I bet the disgraced/resigned NY Attorney General (Eric Schneiderman) is mixed up in this Cohen saga somehow.

No. Mueller turned over what it had on Cohen to the US Attorney for the SDNY. That in turn prompted the FBI to open an investigation into Cohen, hence the FBI raid and his current troubles.


We're almost full circle here with the weakest link being Mueller.


Again, I don't think this necessarily has anything to do with "collusion" during the election. I suspect it's more about peddling influence after the election.

Also, it may have nothing to do with what the FBI is investigating Cohen for because we don't actually know what that is. It's also possible that Cohen is still on Mueller's radar but I tend to think handing whatever information to the US Attorney indicates that Cohen isn't a subject in the Mueller investigation.

I wonder if this will turn out like the last story from this guy, where MSNBC had to pull their story.


I could be mistaken, but I don't believe Avenatti was the source of the MSNBC story where they made the rather significant f up of mistaking wiretap with pen register/trap and trace.


More fake news might damage his credibility.


It could. Or... maybe like Trump, his credibility won't ever suffer among those who want to believe him no matter how much "fake news" he puts out.

No, you are not mistaken, I am.
I went back and looked at the story.
They attributed it to two unidentified sources.
The Stormy lawyer was included in the story and I did not remember it accurately.

You may not, but given the language used in the tweets from the source, there clearly is a weighted effort to convey as much.

No. It's a federal investigation. Do you have wonder if maybe, just maybe, some of these people are just scummy criminals? I get that you're a huge Trump supporter but does that automatically extend to everyone he's ever known? Isn't it at least possible that Michael Cohen has done criminal things?

Here's the important link of Michael Avenatti with all the details www.dropbox.com...

AVENATTI & ASSOCIATES, APC -PROJECT SUNLIGHT




From October 2016 through January 2018, Mr. Cohen used his First Republic account to engage in suspicious financial transactions totaling $4,425,033.46.

•Chief among these suspicious financial transactions are approximately $500,000 in payments received from Mr. Viktor Vekselberg, a Russian Oligarch with an estimated net worth of nearly $13 Billion. Mr. Vekselberg and his cousin Mr. Andrew Intrater routed eight payments to Mr. Cohen through a company named Columbus Nova LLC (“Columbus”) beginning in January 2017 and continuing until at least August 2017.

This all just may be another piece of the puzzle

Maybe he has broken the law. Everyone has. What I'm wondering is how a Porn Star's attorney is privy to this? That makes me believe that either it's not true, or he's breaking the law by leaking information related to an investigation.
