Trump and Cohen have already both publicly stated that the payoff took place without Trumps knowledge.

Isn't that the reason the FBI used to raid Cohen's office

I don't think the reason has been made public.

But it is a fact that acting on behalf of a client (paying off the porn star) without their knowledge is something that you cab be disbarred for in New York state.

Michael Cohen Asks Judge to Shield Trump Files From Prosecutors

Quote:

A lawyer representing Mr. Trump’s interest in the case also appeared, and asked a judge to order the Justice Department to temporarily delay looking at the files until the matter could be litigated. “Those searches have been executed and the evidence is locked down. I’m not trying to delay,” Joanna C. Hendon, an attorney for Mr. Trump, said during the hearing on Friday. “I’m just trying to ensure that it’s done scrupulously.”
Mr. Cohen wants his lawyers to be able to review the files and withhold privileged material before prosecutors can see them. As an alternative, he asked that an independent lawyer be allowed to review the files first. A judge postponed any decision until a follow-up hearing Monday.

I'm wondering if we are getting too wound up over the foibles of the Donald! There are at least a dozen (probably a lot more) on his forum alone who are obsessing over disasters that might occur due to activities of the Donald, when so far none have happened. Living like this is neither normal or wise. Donald is a "Prince" when compared to the likes of Kadaffy, Amin, Mugabbe and Hussein. We should be ecstatic about that and quit the worrying and whining. In close to 500 days the sky has not budged one iota. There's more to life than this shit!

sounds like another spurious legal motion like Manafort's attempt to have the Mueller investigation derailed.

anything that delays or distracts is going to be employed

NO surprise at this end either, In fact this behavior seems to be the NORM for the bloke. It all fits into the trump scenario / world.

Comey is right about one thing (from the book ) when he describes the Trump style as MOB style of management / persona.


There is no low that this gang won't go and happily if it means self preservation of the emperor. ( Or "godfather"

**********

Cohen is now officially under CRIMINAL investigation.


Cohen could be the key to a LOT now. He holds all the Trump secrets.

Well Cohen is obviously a fixer.

Looks like the $300K he got Stormy to settle for was a bargain.

BREAKING NEWS

President Trump's advisers believe the corruption investigation into his lawyer is a bigger threat than the special counsel's Russia inquiry




https://www.nytimes.com/2018/04/13/u...s&ref=headline


They might just have a point. The pressure is coming from several sides. The Meuller group., The Cohen c riminal investigation , the many ladies who he tried to bribe into silence...... and THEIR lawyers.


His rage is apparently out of control now. Word is that he is unmanageable........ No surpirse there. Hillary was right: He never had the temperament for the job. He is far too volatile..........and to be blunt is America's biggest threat.

speaking of his job........... when is he doing what he was elected to do?? How in heck can anyone think this unstable psycho is capable for the job. ??

Like WHO cares about his gal pals, his affairs , etc..............WHAT matters is his INCOMPETENCE , poor judgement, volatile temperament, hollow understanding of the governing process , impatience, narcissism and general psychopathy. REALITY: this is the most DESTRUCTIVE administration in the "free world"

His pardon of Scooter Libby is just one more bit of stupidity.

A guy who worked in the Bush admin and could not get a pardon from Bush.

He is just that guilty.

Giuliani reopens negotiations about presidential interview with Mueller but cautions special counsel that Trump remains resistant

Rudolph W. Giuliani, President Trump��s new personal lawyer dealing with the ongoing probe into Russian interference in the 2016 election, met with special counsel Robert S. Mueller III on Tuesday to reopen negotiations for a presidential interview, according to three people familiar with the talks.

Giuliani, who joined Trump��s legal team last week, conveyed the ongoing resistance of Trump and his advisers to an interview with federal investigators, but did not rule out the possibility, the people said, adding that Giuliani pressed Mueller for clarity on when the probe is expected to end.

In response, the special counsel emphasized that an interview is essential for investigators to understand Trump��s intent in making key decisions as they seek to wrap up the portion of their probe focused on potential obstruction of justice.

So, guess that, kids? ANOTHER one of Trump's lawyers has quit. This time it is Ty Cobb that has struck out.

I guess that the smart ones are bailing before they get caught up in the net.
