Via Raw Story:

Longtime Donald Trump lawyer Michael Cohen will be pleading the Fifth Amendment in the Stormy Daniels case, the former adult movie star’s attorney revealed on MSNBC’s Deadline: White House on Thursday.

“What is your understanding of where things stand with Mr. Cohen, your adversary in this legal contest about Stormy Daniels’s NDA?” anchor Nicolle Wallace asked Michael Avenatti.

“Well, we’ve learned moments ago — within the last two hours — that Michael Cohen will be filing a motion tomorrow in our case, an emergency motion, to stay or temporarily stop our case and the grounds for that motion are going to be that it is his intention to plead the 5th amendment against self-incrimination if our case goes forward, in light of potential criminal jeopardy that he finds himself in,” Avenatti revealed. “So, this is a stunning development.”

“Michael Cohen, who has been in essentially hand-to-hand combat with you over the enforcement of Stormy Daniels’s NDA is now going to plead the Fifth?” Wallace asked.

“Today we find out that it is his intention to plead the Fifth against self-incrimination in response to any questions that I may pose to him in connection with our case, they are going to seek an emergency stay,” Avenatti explained. “We are going to oppose that stay, we think we have very good grounds as to why there should be no delay in our case.”

“But make no mistake about it, we’re talking about the attorney to the President of the United States, the man that knows where a lot of bodies are buried,” he continued. “And we have learned within the last hour or two that it is his intention to plead the Fifth Amendment.”


Cohen's a corrupt lawyer who is the fixer for the most corrupt President in history. But we'll still hear Joe tell us how he just doesn't know if Trump is dirty or not. Just have to wait and see, Joe will say!

Sounds like something a mobster like Cohen would do.

Cohen is really desperate to not to say anything. I doubt the motion to quash will work....and by pleading the fifth he is hanging 45 out to dry.

For his complete diet of information, Donald Trump watches the FOX NEWS day long attacks on the judiciary, attacks on law enforcement, attacks on Robert Mueller, and most recently on the incompetence of Rod Rosenstein. Trump's cabinet, most of his administration in fact, is half empty chairs. The guy he found on fox news to be the head of his national security council is emptying out that organization. He doesn't have a legal team, so he takes his legal advise from FOX NEWS "legal experts." And Joe says we have to wait and see if Trump is really unfit for the office.

If this was November 10, 1938 Joe would be saying we will just have to wait and see about Hitler.

They used to offer the mob bosses immunity so that they would be forced to testify. Normally
that led to contempt charges but I suppose Trump could pardon Cohen as well.

Those Cohen tapes seized in the FBI raid if admissible could be the 21st century version of
the Watergate tapes. Key will be to whether those tapes prove crimes have been committed.

Now, now, Ike. You know better. Fox loves them some law enforcement if brown people are getting their heads beat in.

Reckon what rock they have to turn over to find the brown people, or the jews, or the muslims who actually appear on Fox? Why TF are Jews like Dershowitz and Kudlow just can't get enough of appearing on fox? (Attention whores is why.)

But reglur 'ol 'murcan white people on Fox? There's so many white people who want to be on Fox that they have to beat them off the FOX front porch with sticks.

We will just have to wait and see if Joe shows up to sit on the fence at FOX.

Alexander Butterfield blew Watergate open with his admission about recording devices used by Tricky Dicky.

Cohen arranged for $1.6 Million Dollar Payout to a Playmate after an affair with a top GOP Donor.

https://www.rawstory.com/2018/04/trumps ... -abortion/.

Elliot Broidy , Deputy Finance Chair of the RNC had an affair a Playmate that resulted in the Playmate having an abortion.

Broidy acknowledged the affair. The of Woman is not public knowledge but Brody paid her to have an exclusive relationship with him which resulted in a pregnancy that was later terminated.

Another "Pro-Life" RePug has an affair and the pregnancy is aborted.

And Cohen was the fixer. Me thinks this is what he did for other Republicans in similar situations.

Republicans probably have a slush fund set aside for this very reason.

I gotta admit, I would to see who would have set such an account and for what reason the account was set up. This was donor money, how such an expenditure would have been justified is what the regulation of Political Funds was designed for.

McClatchy: Mueller Has Evidence Cohen Traveled To Prague During Campaign
https://talkingpointsmemo.com/muckraker ... g-campaign

Special Counsel Robert Mueller has evidence that Michael Cohen made a trip to Prague in the summer of 2016, McClatchy reports, citing two sources with familiar with the matter.

The report represents a potentially significant development in Mueller’s Russia investigation. If the meeting occurred, it could undercut President Trump’s repeated claim that there was “no collusion” between his campaign and Russia.

The Steele dossier, which is unverified, contained claims that Cohen, Trump’s long-time fixer, met secretly with Russian intelligence agents in Prague in 2016 to strategize about the campaign. Congressional investigators have said they’ve looked into the issue.

[snip][end]

Maybe the so-called "dodgy" dossier ain't so dodgy.

I had a feeling this was about more than just Stormy, and it clearly is.

Everything about this is about more than Stormy. Everybody, literally, everybody knew that Trump was unethical in his business dealings. Why would any sane person think that he would conform to the law, let alone norms, in politics? Trump's unethical/illegal actions, Hillary hatred, knee-jerk voting for Republicans, Russian interference, overt racism, misogyny and a dash of poor campaigning all mixed in a bowl of poor civic duty gave us this mess. I blame the electorate.

The Steele Dossier has been proven correct and truthful. But Republicans never let the truth get in way of a lie.
