A “longtime legal adviser” for Donald Trump has warned the president his longtime personal attorney, Michael Cohen, will flip on the president “if faced with criminal charges,” the Wall Street Journal reports.

According to the Journal report, Trump sought out legal advice from Jay Goldberg, who in turn informed the president that on a stale of 1 to 100, where 100 is fully loyal to the president, Cohen “isn’t even a 1.”

Goldberg told the Journal he explained to Trump, “Michael will never stand up [for you]” if faced with charges. Investigators are currently probing whether Cohen committed bank fraud when he paid adult film star Stormy Daniels $130,000 from his home equity line of credit in exchange for her silence on an alleged affair with Trump.

Goldberg also warned the president Cohen may wear a wire to record conversations with Trump and people close to him.

“You have to be alert,” Goldberg said he told Trump. “I don’t care what Michael says.”

The longtime legal adviser also warned Trump not to speak with special counsel Robert Mueller.

“Talking is a certain trap,” Goldberg says he told the president. “Don’t ever do it.”

Betsy DeVos’ DOE threatens to cut university funding for positive portrayal of Islam

The U.S Department of Education threatened to pull federal funding from a Middle East studies course jointly run by Duke University and the University of North Carolina because it portrays Islam too positively.

The DOE ordered the universities to change their program or lose its federal grant money. In a letter to UNC, the department criticized the program, arguing that topics like Iranian art and film have “little or no relevance” to the Middle East studies program. The letter also argues that the program “appears to lack balance” because its programs are not focused on the discrimination faced by “religious minorities in the Middle East," including Christians and Jews.

Wall Street is ignoring the omens of recession — here’s why

Published

on

The Federal Reserve seems a lot more concerned about the state of the economy than it’s been letting on.

The Fed lowered its target interest rate by a quarter point on Sept. 18, the second such cut since July – and the first reductions since the Great Recession more than 10 years ago.
