Insanity? Hyperbole? Michael Cohen & HIS Lawyer

Recommended Posts

Insanity? or mere Hyperbole? Michael Cohen & HIS Lawyer

Hyperbolic accusations are now being denied

"The idea that Lanny Davis was simply freelancing with a narrative he hadn't run by his client just doesn't ring true."

Lanny+Davis+Steve+Bannon+Lanny+Davis+Hol

Michael Cohen's lawyer has done real damage to the case against Trump

One of the most bizarre aspects of the investigations engulfing the Trump administration is the lawyers involved. Here we have a presidency on the line, and this is Trump's team? The top legal spokesmen for each side are . . . Rudy Giuliani and Lanny Davis!?

Up until this point, though, Giuliani was the Great Contradictor and Davis was merely a colorful character. Now that has changed in a big way.

In a new interview with The Washington Post's Tom Hamburger and Rosalind S. Helderman, Davis is backing off two massive claims he made in recent weeks, including that former Trump lawyer Michael Cohen has told people he witnessed President Donald Trump being informed of Donald Trump Jr.'s 2016 Trump Tower meeting with a Russian lawyer before it happened.

"I should have been more clear - including with you - that I could not independently confirm what happened," Davis said, adding: "I regret my error.

Davis also backed off his claim that Cohen has information suggesting that Trump knew in advance about Russian hacking of Democrats' emails in 2016.

"I am not sure," he said. "There's a possibility that is the case. But I am not sure."

. . . The first of these claims was put forward anonymously, initially in a story which CNN is standing by. The Post also reported it - though unlike CNN it didn't report Cohen as saying Trump knew the information was coming from Russians - and cited Davis as an unnamed source. The second claim was made publicly by Davis on TV.

So what on earth is going on here? Davis, for his part, suggests that he was just speculating. Witness this amazing pair of paragraphs at the end of Hamburger's and Helderman's story:

"A strong feeling." That just doesn't make much sense. Davis is a lawyer for his client, not a pundit. He can speak to Cohen about sensitive matters. His job is literally to speak publicly for Cohen, and getting their story straight is Job No. 1. The idea that Davis was simply freelancing with a narrative he hadn't run by his client just doesn't ring true. And if he was, how has Cohen not fired him for so clearly botching his defense?

It's also pretty remarkable that, despite the first of these claims having been in the public domain for several weeks now - CNN's story broke exactly one month ago, on July 27 - Davis only began reining it in last week. Why wait that long if it was erroneous? Did Cohen not notice he was being put forward as the guy who might be able to prove Trump's collusion with Russia - a claim that, if true, could end an American presidency?

The rhetoric from the SCUM-ocrats* has reached intense levels of insanity

You may not notice it, because the Lie Stream Media** is on the same level of insanity

The LSM is covering for the Dems.

At the same time, THE PEOPLE ARE WAKING UP !

The Lies & the phony narrative (pushed by the media) is becoming more apparent every day

*formerly Democrats.  Only a few sensible ones are left, the true Democrats

**formerly the Main Stream Media (MSM).  They are now a leftist propaganda

A rarity?  A sensible Leftist:

Is Risen-Slime at the core of this Insanity?

Report Claims Rod Rosenstein Manipulated the Cohen Case to Get Trump

A report by Michael Goodwin at the NY Post on Saturday claims Rod Rosenstein moved the Cohen case to New York and then forced Trump-appointed U.S. attorney Goeffrey Berman to recuse himself. That was prior to the raid on Michael Cohen’s residences and office.

Berman’s recusal left Preet Bharara’s holdover staff in charge of the Cohen case, Goodwin wrote. Bharara is a sworn enemy of the President’s, especially since the President fired him.

There was a conflicting report earlier this year. In April, ABC News reported the Berman recusal was approved by senior Justice Department officials who report to Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, the sources said. Rosenstein himself was notified of the recusal after the decision was made, ABC News said.

Voters Say Manafort, Cohen Verdicts No Criminal Problem for TrumpVoters still tend to think the highly publicized cases of Trump associates Paul Manafort and Michael Cohen will not cause criminal problems for the president, but it’s a party line vote.

 

The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 44% of Likely U.S. Voters think the conviction of Manafort and the guilty pleas of Cohen are likely to lead to criminal charges against Trump. Fifty percent (50%) consider that unlikely. This includes 20% who say it’s Very Likely and 24% who see it as Not At All Likely. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

We need a Guide like this to recognize types of Democrats

Is your pond scum algae or something else?

?format=500w

There is one easy way to find out what’s in your water: pick it up.  Grab a handful of the pond scum, touch and, it look at it carefully.  Then choose which of these descriptions fits best:

It is slimy to the touch

It is most likely algae.  There are several types of algae.  You can use our Weed Identification tool to determine which kind of algae you have.

It mats together like wet hair

It is most likely a type of algae called filamentous algae.  Also known as “pond scum” or “moss,” this type of algae can form dense, hair-like mats on the water’s surface.

It is gritty to the touch

Lanny Davis Admits Being Source For CNN Trump Tower "Bombshell" Fake News

Then, last week, amid the deafening euphoria of the 'anti-Trump'-ers, Davis told Anderson Cooper:

“I think the reporting of the story got mixed up in the course of a criminal investigation. We were not the source of the story.”

Davis increasingly backed away from the story in recent days, telling the Washington Post that he is not certain if the claim is accurate, and that he could not independently corroborate it.

Destroying CNN's "bombshell" story, crushing the hopes of millions of 'not my president'-ers.

" meanwhile, in the real world. The view ..." (from inside the Sparkian bubble, where truth never penetrates)

How about admitting you (and all the anti-Trumpers) were fooled, Soarks.

And telling us what you will do to avoid getting fooled yet again - apart from listening to people who have actual discernment.

I suppose a requirement of being a "house Troll" is to have thick skin, & never admit errors

You can start a new thread on Wasserberg, or whatever his name is... & if it looks like more irrelevant nonsense, Iw ill just move it.

 

I still dont get why yiou are so UN-interested in all the Clinton Foundation crimes.

We know why Mule-R is uninterested... He's part of the Cover-Up.  Are you also?

Jimmy Crater (a president destroyed by negative press) gets it

Jimmy Carter Warns Democrats Not To Talk Impeachment

I know it’s fashionable for right-wingers to hate on the former President from Georgia. But I’ve always seen Carter as kind of a ho-hum harmless country boy swept into circumstances he wasn’t equipped to handle.

In that vein, I think Carter’s latest advice to Democrats is full of the humility and caution he used throughout his career in public service. And it’s also advice that Democrats will hate to hear.

Carter went on Fox Business with a warning for Democrats: refrain from impeachment talk. It will only hurt Democrats electorally.

It was less than a month (18th july mueller sought the immunity) between key manafort witnesses being granted immunity and Manafort being found guilty.

19th of february Rick Gates was crowned queen for the day.

So this could move more or less pretty quickly now.

Impeachment = Mike Pence president.

I dont know how many times I need to point out the only people who want that are Mike Pence and Robert Mueller. Democrats are fairly happy with Trump exactly where he is. Even Nansy Pelosi said so ages ago.

I’m not going after it': Nancy Pelosi says impeaching Trump is 'off the table' if Democrats retake the House in November

CNN caught red-handed fabricating fake news, fake sources

In a bombshell media scandal that’s growing by the hour, the tag-team of CNN and Watergate-fame journalism legend Carl Bernstein have been caught red-handed fabricating utterly fake news in a desperate effort to cast criminal blame upon President Donald J. Trump.

The scandal is exploding across the media, with the Washington Post and other media outlets now retracting their original reporting based on CNN claims — now proven false — that attempted to assert the President had prior knowledge of a Trump Tower “meeting with the Russians,” an event that now appears certain to have been a deep state setup to ensnare Trump associates.

. . . “CNN simply refuses to address the serious ethical and journalistic questions raised about its conduct,” warns Greenwald at The Intercept. “The substance of the CNN story itself regarding Cohen – which made headline news all over all the world and which CNN hyped as a ‘bombshell’ – has now been retracted by other news outlets that originally purported to ‘confirm’ CNN’s story,” he writes.

At issue in all this is the CNN / Bernstein claim that Michael Cohen was not a source for their “bombshell” story which originally claimed that anonymous sources confirmed Cohen was aware of a Trump/Russia conspiracy and intended to deliver that information to Robert Mueller. This original story was heralded by CNN as a groundbreaking, Earth-shattering news item, and it was breathlessly repeated by thousands of news outlets, blogs and TV shows all around the world.

But it all turns out to be false. Cohen’s own attorney, Lanny Davis, has now publicly admitted his original assertion was false. Michael Cohen has no such knowledge, Davis now explains, and CNN’s original report was baseless.

Yet to the shock of everyone, CNN still refuses to retract its original story...

. . . CNN wanted the story to be true, of course, which is why they so heavily promoted it with “bombshell” language. “[W]hen CNN reported this, it was a major deal–because it would have justified the continued existence of the Special Counsel’s office despite a complete lack more than a year into this investigation since President Trump fired now former FBI director James Comey of any evidence at the center of the mandate of the probe,” reports Breitbart News

. . .“Media outlets have invented a deceitful term to discredit and trivialize any reporting on their own wrongful conduct. Such reporting, they say, is nothing more than ‘media criticism,’ in contrast to the ‘real reporting’ they do,” points out Greenwald. He further explains exactly what we’re all thinking:

This term is self-serving nonsense from media outlets, seeking to render their own behavior off-limits from journalistic scrutiny. Media outlets such as CNN and MSNBC are highly powerful corporate actors. Their behavior can generate immense consequences for society. When they engage in journalistically deceitful or unethical practices, or when they report consequential claims that end up being false as a result of their recklessness or bias, that produces highly harmful outcomes.

In fact, Greenwald has now come to the very same conclusion we’ve been sharing for years: That the left-wing media deliberately, repeatedly and routinely fabricates fake sources to invent fake news that’s designed to damage conservatives in general and President Trump more specifically.

Why would he lie and say all they talked about was Stormy Daniels?

Even if you concentrate solely on the campaign finance violations the biggest interest there seemed to be what happened to Jane Doe 2016 and where the documentation is they had on her.

And campaign finance violation questions were only a tiny fraction of what Cohen had to say, most of which was answered ultimately with "talk to Allen Weisselberg"
