Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Friday, January 18, 2019

President Donald Trump directed his longtime attorney Michael Cohen to lie to Congress about negotiations to build a Trump Tower in Moscow, according to two federal law enforcement officials involved in an investigation of the matter. Trump also supported a plan, set up by Cohen, to visit Russia during the presidential campaign, in order to personally meet President Vladimir Putin and jump-start the tower negotiations. "Make it happen," the sources said Trump told Cohen.

The special counsel's office learned about Trump's directive for Cohen to lie to Congress through interviews with multiple witnesses from the Trump Organization and internal company emails, text messages, and a cache of other documents. Cohen then acknowledged those instructions during his interviews with that office.

Conspiracy theory:
Mueller asked Barr to write a memo saying Muellers investigation was flawed and POTUS could not be indicted because he knew Trump would try and put a stooge in as AG to shutdown the investigation.

"Trump supported a plan to personally visit Russia during the 2016 presidential campaign, BuzzFeed reports, to personally meet with President Vladimir Putin to negotiate. According to BuzzFeed, Trump said to Cohen, "Make it happen."

The law enforcement sources familiar with Cohen's testimony to Mueller's office told BuzzFeed that the President, Ivanka Trump and Donald Trump Jr. received regular, detailed updates from Cohen about the Moscow project.

CNN has previously reported the project would've given Trump's company a $4 million upfront fee, no upfront costs, a percentage of the sales and control over marketing and design. The deal also included an opportunity to name the hotel spa after Ivanka Trump."

"BuzzFeed News has tonight printed perhaps the most damaging claim against Donald Trump yet, a claim that, if true (a very big "if"), produces evidence against the president that is remarkably similar to evidence used to support articles of impeachment against Bill Clinton and Richard Nixon.

And while there are numerous news reports regarding Trump's activities that either remain unproven or have been debunked, this report is rendered especially plausible by documents the special counsel's office filed just last month.

Let's break this down, step-by-step:"

We truly are quickly approaching the end game where even Trump's staunchest GOP supporters will no longer be able to square their stance against history's record based on things already established in court filings and Douglas Barr's own testimony.

Recall that in December Robert Mueller's office filed a sentencing memo describing the extent of Cohen's cooperation with the special counsel. A close read of the document shows that the special counsel dropped hints of some very interesting additional evidence in the case. Here's how I analyzed the memo:

The special counsel takes pains to note that Cohen's false statements to investigators were "deliberate and premeditated" and "did not spring spontaneously from a line of examination or a heated colloquy during a congressional hearing." His lies were in a "written submission" and a "prepared opening statement." These lies were allegedly told to "minimize the links" between the Moscow Trump Tower project and Trump himself.

Also -- and this is crucial -- the memo notes that Cohen has been cooperating in describing the "circumstances of preparing and circulating his response to the congressional inquiries" [emphasis added].

In plain English, this means that it is highly likely that senior Trump officials reviewed Cohen's prepared, false testimony before he lied to Congress. This raises two important questions. Was Trump aware of the substance of Cohen's testimony? If so, was Trump aware that Cohen's testimony was false?

Now, why are these particular claims so important? First, because they go a long way towards meeting the elements of the crime of subornation of perjury.

Now, compare this to the charges listed in the articles of impeachment leveled against BOTH Presidents Nixon and Clinton:
Nixon was accused of, among other things:

approving, condoning, acquiescing in, and counselling witnesses with respect to the giving of false or misleading statements to lawfully authorized investigative officers and employees of the United States and false or misleading testimony in duly instituted judicial and congressional proceedings.

Bill Clinton faced similar claims. For example:

(1) On or about December 17, 1997, William Jefferson Clinton corruptly encouraged a witness in a Federal civil rights action brought against him to execute a sworn affidavit in that proceeding that he knew to be perjurious, false and misleading.

(2) On or about December 17, 1997, William Jefferson Clinton corruptly encouraged a witness in a Federal civil rights action brought against him to give perjurious, false and misleading testimony if and when called to testify personally in that proceeding. (same link)

Lastly, this is what AG nominee Barr just verified when asked a question by Senator Amy Klobuchar:
Obviously, the President and any other official can commit obstruction in this classic sense of sabotaging a proceeding's truth-finding function. Thus, for example, if a President knowingly destroys or alters evidence, suborns perjury, or induces a witness to change testimony, or commits any act deliberately impairing the integrity or availability of evidence, then he, like anyone else, commits the crime of obstruction."
Game, set, match.

One thing going through my mind at this point is Pres Trump's reaction when the raids on Mr Cohen's residence and office occurred. Pres Trump was swift and strong in his denouncement of the raids.

Did Pres Trump know that Mr Cohen had tape recordings of conversations, or was Pres Trump so concerned just because of the paper trail that he thought may exist in Mr Cohen's possession?

I further wonder just how extensive is Mr Cohen's collection of taped conversations. If the tape collection is even only somewhat extensive, then I'd proffer that Pres Trump may have some issues to deal with.

The Senate in 1974 wasn't nearly as disingenuous as it is today. Back then, Nixon faced a reality that his party had turned on him. Trump cultists are now an essential element of the Republican party and the party is not going to turn on him. McConnell is demonstrating that right now by blocking bills to open the government and aside from maybe 1 or 2 Republican senators there is no real uproar.

If you can't get 20 Republican Senators to break with Trump and open the government do you really think you'll get them to impeach Trump?

I think it is more than that. McConnell is majority leader. He is responsible for representing his majority members. If he allows the vote, then Republicans either have to vote it down, and get branded with the shutdown (so far, McConnell has been pretty effective at placing blame for the shutdown on Trump) or vote FOR it and piss off their base. And, if they vote for it and Trump vetos it, then they will probably have to have ANOTHER vote to override the veto (with the same sort of consequences whether they vote for or against). The best thing for Republicans in the Senate right now is to stick their heads in the sand and hope something changes to get them out of this corner. McConnell is the front man for doing that.

The thing that I am most surprised about in all this is that I have seen articles from both the Washington Examiner and the National Review (who are both usually pretty conservative and supportive of Trump) saying that IF THIS IS TRUE, then impeachment is justified.

The danger to Democrats in impeachment is that the public sees it as political (think Clinton and the political fallout for Republicans over it). That is why Pelosi has been downplaying impeachment. She wants an impeachment that is seen as legitimate (think Nixon and the political fallout for Republicans over it), but for that she has to have Republican support. I think this may be a turning point (if the buzzfeed revelations are true) because I am seeing conservatives saying it crosses the line and that impeachment may be justified.

Given that today's GOP is much less patriotic than during the '70's, I believe they'll hold out a lot longer, but sooner or later self-preservation will kick in and they'll have to throw Trump under the bus... but only after it becomes clear to enough of the Base what Trump has done that they fear for their own jobs.

Which, knowing the Base, may be later rather than sooner. I expect that Trump may, like Nixon, want to practice the art of the deal as soon as it is obvious, even to him, that will happen.

"Despite the admission of having not seen the evidence in question, Cormier explained his sources with impressive detail.

"[Our sources] have been working the Trump Moscow tower portion of the investigation ... before Mueller. So they had access to a number of different documents, 302 reports which are interview reports," he said.

"That stuff was compiled as they began to look at who the players were speaking with, how those negotiations went, who all from the Trump organization and outside the organization were involved in getting that tower set up."

"They began to compile the evidence before Michael Cohen decided to cooperate and speak with the Special Counsel," Cormier added.

"My sourcing on this goes beyond the two on the record," Cormier told Camerota, adding "It's 100 percent. I am the individual who confirmed and verified that it I am telling you our sourcing goes beyond the two I was able to put on the record. We were able to gather information from individuals who know this happened. "

It looks like Pres Trump is denying this, saying that Mr Cohen is lying to reduce jail time. Mr Giuliani is also denying it.

Any investigator worth his or her salt would not take Mr Cohen's word on this. There would also have to be other evidence to back up this assertion --- email, recordings, documents, etc.

It will be interesting to watch as this unfolds.

Yeah... we keep saying "if it is true" because we don't have any confirmation that it is. You keep saying "it is false" because that is what you WANT to be the case.

I notice that you have still refused to weigh in on the actual issue at hand. The nice thing about the "if it is true" is that you aren't actually calling for your savior's impeachment, you are just drawing a line in the sand. And, this is all false anyway so there is no risk to you of being called out if you don't stand by any statement in the future, right?

So let me try to help you... "if it is true", would you agree Trump should be impeached? Or, do you somehow think that it is not serious enough (even though this is what impeached Nixon)? Or are you a true partisan who thinks there is NO LAW that Trump could break, or anything he could do, that would justify impeachment. (I'm betting on door 3)

I eagerly await your answer.

"While Cohen already acknowledged lying to Congress in late November -- when he pleaded guilty to giving false testimony to congressional investigators about how long negotiations on the Trump Tower went on and suggested he'd done so to protect Trump -- Trump and his attorney, Rudy Giuliani, were quick to dismiss the claims at the time as nothing more than the ramblings of a "liar."

Yet two federal law enforcement officials cited by BuzzFeed late Thursday now say Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigators had gathered evidence of Trump directing Cohen to lie before the president's longtime fixer even admitted to the alleged scheme."

The Senate in 1974 wasn't nearly as disingenuous as it is today. Back then, Nixon faced a reality that his party had turned on him. Trump cultists are now an essential element of the Republican party and the party is not going to turn on him. McConnell is demonstrating that right now by blocking bills to open the government and aside from maybe 1 or 2 Republican senators there is no real uproar.
If you can't get 20 Republican Senators to break with Trump and open the government do you really think you'll get them to impeach Trump?

It was only after Nixon's approval ratings dropped into the 30's that some GOP members really started to distance themselves. Coincidentally, Trump's approval rating is down to 37% in gallup's tracking poll and has just fell below the 40% mark on 538's composite poll. It's at 41% and falling fast on rcp's composite.

BuzzFeed Reporter Responds To Trump's Anti-Cohen Tweet With Actual Facts

Donald J. Trump

@realDonaldTrump
Kevin Corke, @FoxNews "Don't forget, Michael Cohen has already been convicted of perjury and fraud, and as recently as this week, the Wall Street Journal has suggested that he may have stolen tens of thousands of dollars...." Lying to reduce his jail time! Watch father-in-law!

Leopold responded to the tweet by simply stating the facts.

"I don't see that there's any indication from the Southern District of New York that he's going to receive a reduced sentence, because he's already been sentenced to three years in prison," he said.

Leopold also pointed out that Cohen has already agreed to cooperate with the special counsel investigation and that Cohen even tweeted that it "knows all."

"I understand the attempts by the administration and the president himself to sort of shift the public's attention onto other areas ― Michael Cohen's father-in-law, [but] to be honest, I don't understand what that means," Leopold said.

Leopold said that it is understood that when Cohen's office was raided, the FBI and the special counsel obtained quite a bit of evidence, including emails and text messages.

He said this evidence corroborated earlier reports he has done on Trump's Moscow project.

"We obtained every single text message Michael Cohen exchanged with Felix Sater on the project. In those text messages, he's discussing briefing Trump," Leopold said, referring to the onetime Trump adviser who proposed giving Russian President Vladimir Putin an apartment in the Moscow tower.

WASHINGTON, Jan 18 (Reuters) - U.S. Special Counsel Robert Mueller's office issued a statement late on Friday taking issue with a report in Buzzfeed that President Donald Trump's former lawyer Michael Cohen said Trump told him to lie to Congress.

"BuzzFeed's description of specific statements to the Special Counsel's Office, and characterization of documents and testimony obtained by this office, regarding Michael Cohen's Congressional testimony are not accurate," Peter Carr, a spokesman for Mueller office, said in the statement

I'm still watching as this one unfolds.

I would not be surprised if there is indeed some manner of fire behind the smoke. Describing it as a gas fire instead of a wood fire would not be accurate. But there may be a fire there, nonetheless.

Corollary: things like this are the reason why I want Mr Mueller to finish his investigation, so we can find out why so many people around Pres Turmp lie so frequently about Russia.

"Special counsel Robert Mueller's office disputed an explosive story from BuzzFeed News as "not accurate" Friday night, after the news outlet reported the President had directed his personal attorney Michael Cohen to lie to Congress, for which Cohen was later prosecuted.

"BuzzFeed's description of specific statements to the Special Counsel's Office, and characterization of documents and testimony obtained by this office, regarding Michael Cohen's Congressional testimony are not accurate," said Peter Carr, a spokesman for Mueller's office, in a statement.

It's highly unusual for the special counsel's office to provide a statement to the media -- outside of court filings and judicial hearings -- about any of its ongoing investigative activities.

In response, BuzzFeed said in its own statement, "We are continuing to report and determine what the special counsel is disputing. We remain confident in the accuracy of our report."

It would be wise to withhold judgment on both the BuzzFeed story and Mueller's denial of it. The story relies on anonymous sources and can't be confirmed by other outlets. But also, the vague denial makes it impossible to know whether Mueller is disputing all of it or just part.

What I'm finding interesting in all this...

Those involved, directly or tangentially, are all selecting their words very carefully, with more than a couple non-denying denials.

For example, WH Dep Press Secretary Hogan Gidley on Fox News this morning when he was asked bluntly by Bill Hemmer, "Are you saying the President did not tell Michael Cohen to do that?"

Gidley's reply: "I'm telling you right now, this is exactly why the President refuses to give any credence or credibility to news outlets..."

Dep Press Sec Gidely went on and on, but did not answer the question, when all he really had to say was "that is correct."

Mr Hemmer replied, after patiently waiting, "That was not a denial of my question."

I thought that exchange to be quite interesting.


Still unexplained in this current set of events is --- why did Mr Giuliani do a sudden about face and say that only Pres Trump didn't collude, apparently implying that others in the campaign did. What prompted him to say that?

I'm thinking I may need to add that one to my list of unanswered curiosities.

Trump derangement syndrome (TDS) is a neologism describing a reaction to United States President Donald Trump by liberals, progressives, and Never Trump neoconservatives, who are said to respond to Trump's statements and political actions irrationally and with little regard to Trump's actual position or action taken.

I will pray for your recovery

Do not pray for me. Pray for yourself and America.

I personally do not wish to "recover".

I wish to remember the story of Humpy his Wall. And when he finally had his Great Fall and how Putin's schemings could not put Humpy together again.

I will remind my children and my grandchildren of the folly of ignorance and Ego.

But, most of all I will tell them the story over and over so they will understand what happens when you lie and your life is a lie and everything about you is a lie.

And what happens to Traitors.
