It feels like it has to be a trap..

Why would cohen flip? Trump can offer him more.. And if he were to be convicted of anything Trump could just pardon him.

sources with knowledge tell CNN.



I stopped reading after that. CNN has no sources with knowledge or they would have used them to stop Trump from becoming President.

Interesting question. Allow me to pose a few scenarios out of infinity.

Cohen believes that Trump will get impeached and will not be able to grant him immunity.

Cohen is being blackmailed by the Alphabet Agencies to try and take Trump out of office.


Trump told Cohen to do this as part of his 4D chess game for reasons that would start a whole new scenario of possibilities.


The alphabit agencies are inept at keeping leakers out of their ranks, or CNN is purposefully putting out false information because thats just what they do.


Also notice the name of one of the authors of this peace. His last name is Cohen. I thought it was interesting.

I'm not convinced that I can believe the source. What was actually said can be misinterpreted or the information spun a hundred and eighty degrees. I will wait till the evidence is released, those sources these days seem to be BS most times, both the ones exposing the Democrats and the Republicans seem to be bs.

It is sad when you cannot believe three quarters of what is being spewed by the news these days. I am not saying it is not true, only that I am not going to accept the evidence till it is officially released.

I was being facetious of course. The fact that people get away with lying to Congress regularly underscores how impotent congressional investigations are. It's all useless political theater.

The letter Trump's attorneys sent to Mueller back in January contradicted the testimony given by Don Jr about the authorship of the initial statement from Team Trump regarding the Tower meeting as it explicitly stated that Trump himself had dictated the statement.

If this is legit, then he lied at least twice and is the Senate Judiciary going to do # about it?

The ironic thing is that the Trump Tower meeting wasn't anything particularly special. Veselnitskaya and her team had been running around the Hill having similar meetings with who knows who else and what was she was offering wasn't from the Russian government. It wasn't even anything particularly useful against HRC.

What's potentially problematic here is this:

The email from Goldstone to Don Jr (10:36 AM June 3, 2016):


Good morning Emin just called and asked me to contact you with something very interesting. The Crown prosecutor of Russia met with his father Aras this morning and in their meeting offered to provide the Trump campaign with some official documents and information that would incriminate Hillary and her dealings with Russia and would be very useful to your father. This is obviously very high level and sensitive information but is part of Russia and its government's support for Mr. Trump - helped along by Aras and Emin.


Don Jr was told that Veselnitskaya had the goods straight from the Russian government and that it was being offered up... by the Russian government. It's right there in black and white.

If Don Jr told his father that he was going to have this meeting to see about getting dirt straight from the Russian government as part of the Russian government's support for Trump and Trump told him to go ahead, that's basically him giving Don Jr approval to conspire with the Russian government on his behalf.

Enough to impeach? Doubt it. (And that's assuming it's true and I wouldn't bet anything on the veracity of any of these people)

But it's not a good look and we're 103 days out from the midterms.

Then Cohen will provide irrefutable proof, in the form of a legally recorded conversation, that he did

Any link that shows that conversation existed?

President Donald Trump's former lawyer has said his client knew in advance of a June 2016 meeting between his aides and a Russian delegation that offered to help his campaign, US media report.

Michael Cohen says he was present when Mr Trump's eldest son, Donald Trump Jr, informed his father of the meeting.

...snip...

Donald Trump Jr and the president's son-in-law, Jared Kushner, have both testified - one to Congress, the other to the special counsel - that the president knew nothing about the meeting until details of it emerged a year later.

... snip ...

In response to the allegation, Mr Trump's lawyer Rudy Giuliani told NBC that Mr Cohen "is not credible".
"It's not true," he said. "Why would you expect it would be true from someone like Cohen? A lawyer who would tape their own client is a lawyer without any character."


Team Trump is running scared to judge by Giuliani's response !

Cohen sounded lke a weasel on the first tape and sure is acting like one. It is "yes-sir" to Trump and now "yes-sir" to Mueller-wonder where he landed in law school? And why would Trump have such a weasel in an important position in his company?
Just like hiring that nasty Omarosa-who everyone hates and is despicable and ratting on him, too-why does he have such a poor ability to pick people around him?

There are very big holes in his management of people and his abiity to find quality. Yeah, he's under attack from all sides but he does himself no favors.

If Cohen can have all his materials confiscated (for investigative reason) and leaked....



.... then I think Strzok's FBI Lawyer should also have the same treatment - considering there's more Russian involvement, collusion and conspiracy in the FBI and its Russian relationship.

This is possibly one of the biggest developments in this whole Trump Russia thing because if what Cohen says it’s true it directly implicates Trump. It means we have moved from it being members of Trumps team being complicit to trump himself being involved.

Big news.

Well I was there and I saw what you did,
I saw it with my own two eyes
So you can wipe off that grin, I know where you've been
It's all been a pack of lies...

One that is trying to save his own ass? Kind of like a plea deal, by releasing this information he is lessening his own sentence.



So you're saying that Cohen is trying to save his ass leaking information to the CNN?

And that this is "kind of like" a plea deal?

Congratulations.

Your delusion just reached a new level.

There's a screenshot of a CNN article saying specifically "to be clear, Cohen doesn't have recorded evidence of Trump's knowledge but is willing to testify", or words to that effect. I'm phone posting so I can't upload it but maybe someone else here will have it?

You do realize that what Cohen says has a higher chance of being true than what Trump or his lackeys say as damage control? You realize that Cohen WAS his lackey, and that all info released by him or from him so far has been accurate?

Thanks for this news, I now have reason to be more certain that Trump Sr. knew, and that means this charade might be over fairly soon.

Who comes after this buffoon is another concern though.

It's huge news and he knows it.

I don't know what you would call this type of thread, but I call it a "damage control thread". Huge news like this, that clearly validate the Russian collusion story, are posted and ridiculed and painted in a bad light. The poster knows he or she won't get much attention for it from buddies as it is anti-Trump but it does not matter, the topic is now posted and buried, and cannot be re-posted in a light that it deserves.

So flag it and hope it gets seen by people who come here to learn and deny ignorance.

Yup its huge news, being spun in a way to pretend its just more rubbish.

When the news came out of the release of the recordings of Trump discussing paying off a porn start with Cohen, I, along with others made the point that it wasn't the release of that recording that was significant it was that Cohen had it. The point was made that if he had that kind of dirt on Trump, what else did he have, I think this could be just the start of it.

Cohen is turning on Trump.

Wouldn't be surprised if Cohen ends up having a "accident" in the next few weeks.

Trump has no need to accident people off like Clinton, all Trump has to do is release the dirt he has on them and boom they are done, look how well it's been working on others that try to screw him.
