Stormy Daniels attorney Michael Avenatti

Michael Avenatti, the attorney for adult film star Stormy Daniels, leveled a jaw-dropping accusation against Trump lawyer Michael Cohen on Sunday.

During an interview with CNN’s Jake Tapper, Avenatti claimed that the men Cohen was seen smoking cigars with outside of a courthouse on Friday afternoon had unspecified ties to the Russian government.

“Michael Cohen was videotaped and photographed sitting with a number of men,” Avenatti said. “We believe that a number of those actually had ties, Russian ties, as crazy as that sounds. This story gets more strange and more strange by the day. You couldn’t make this up if you wanted to.”

Tapper seemed taken aback by Avenatti’s allegations and pressed him for more details.

“Can you shed more light on what you said?” he asked. “I mean, I saw a picture of one of the people he was sitting with, and he has ties to one particular Russian wealthy individual. What else are you talking about?”

“I don’t want to say too much this morning, but you can’t make this stuff up,” Avenatti replied. “I don’t understand what he is doing, what Michael Cohen’s doing with each passing day. This is getting worse and worse for him and getting worse and worse for the president.”

‘The president’s lying — that should matter!’ CNN’s Berman unloads on GOP for blowing off Bolton revelations

Published

on

CNN's John Berman on Tuesday expressed frustration at the idea that Republican senators could still vote to acquit President Donald Trump even after leaked excerpts of former national security adviser John Bolton's book further implicated the president.

During a panel discussion about Bolton's book, which reportedly alleges that Trump directly linked releasing military aid to Ukraine with investigations into former Vice President Joe Biden, New York Times reporter Maggie Haberman warned that the book may not be the big game changer that many have been hoping to see.

"I'm somewhat more skeptical that this is going to necessarily lead to witnesses," she said. "It might. I just think that we really don't know, and I think the desire for Republicans to have this wrapped up fairly quickly remains strong."

GOP’s Joni Ernst may have inadvertently boosted Joe Biden in Iowa: ex-White House official

Published

on

On CNN's "New Day," regular contributor and former White House Press Secretary Joe Lockhart almost rolled his eyes at a clip of Iowa Republican Sen. Joni Ernst rushing to the cameras to gush about attacks on Joe Biden, saying she may have ended up helping the former vice president in her own state.

Speaking with hosts John Berman and Alisyn Camerota after watching the clip of the Iowa Republican blurting, "The Iowa caucuses are this next Monday evening, and I'm really interested to see how this discussion today informs and influences the Iowa caucus voters, those Democratic goers. Will they be supporting VP Biden at this point?" Lockhart seemed in disbelief that she may have handed Biden a boost.

CNN panel cracks up laughing at Trump lawyers trying to make Rudy Giuliani into ‘the coffee boy’

Published

on

President Donald Trump's legal team fought Monday to try and claim that Rudy Giuliani had nothing to do with the president's efforts in Ukraine.

It's a claim that flies in the face of the documents, testimony, text messages and more that have been revealed throughout the course of the investigation that hangs the albatross around Giuliani's neck.

In fact, Giuliani crafted his own letter to Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky saying that he was authorized to speak on behalf of President Donald Trump as a "private attorney." If the president cared so much about corruption in Ukraine, why would he be doing a shadow foreign policy using Giuliani instead of through Congress, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, the United Nations, the European Union, the International Monetary Fund or a slew of other international groups interested in the issue.
