Trump team still negotiating Mueller interview despite Cohen raid: report

Published

on

According to one of Donald Trump’s attorneys, negotiations are ongoing for the president to sit down with special counsel Robert Mueller after it appeared they had fallen apart following a raid on Trump’s personal attorney Michael Cohen.

Speaking with the Daily Beast, Trump attorney Ty Cobb, it is possible that the interview could take place.

“The Cohen searches, while they have taken time away from discussions with regard to an interview, certainly have not brought those discussions to a halt,” Cobb  said in a statement. “They continue.”

Following news of the raids on Cohen home and office, Trump raged on Twitter claiming, “Attorney Client privilege is now a thing of the past. I have many (too many!) lawyers and they are probably wondering when their offices, and even homes, are going to be raided with everything, including their phones and computers, taken. All lawyers are deflated and concerned!”

Despite Trump’s Twitter outburst, Cobb said negotiations have continued.

“The Cohen searches have not yet changed our strategy or level of cooperation with the special counsel,” Cobb continued.

Trump personal attorney Jay Sekulow conformed the statements saying, “We continue our ongoing cooperation with the Office of the Special Counsel.”

The attorney’s no doubt will be joined in the negotiation by former New York City Mayor and U.S. Attorney Rudy Giuliani who announced he is joining the Trump legal team and brings more criminal charges experience.

“I’m doing it because I hope we can negotiate an end to this for the good of the country and because I have high regard for the president and for Bob Mueller,” Giuliani said in a statement.

Late on Tuesday, I got an email from an unusual source. A reporter for the conservative publication the Washington Examiner asked if I'd be interested in sharing thoughts on Joe Biden's history of joking "about 'locking up your daughters'" and on "Biden's view of women and gender relations." This was in light of my previous criticisms of Biden's apparent condescension towards girls and women, and his pockmarked history on gender relations in general.

Cory Booker rips Biden for praising racist senators: ‘You don’t joke about calling black men boys’

Published

Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ) blasted Joe Biden for praising two segregationist senators he'd served with as a lawmaker.

The former vice president and current Democratic presidential frontrunner reminisced about his relationship with Mississippi Democrat James Eastland and Georgia Democrat Herman Talmadge, two notoriously racist senators during the Civil Rights era, reported The Hill.

“At least there was some civility, we got things done," Biden said, recalling that Eastland had never called him "boy." "We didn't agree on much of anything. We got things done, we got it finished."

Published

Some diehard supporters of President Donald Trump have asserted that they admire the fact that he is so unapologetic about his rhetoric and his actions. But according to a new Pew Research survey, most Republican or Republican-leaning voters admit that they sometimes feel “embarrassed” or “concerned” about things that Trump says.

According to Pew, 53% of Republican or Republican-leaning voters say they sometimes feel “embarrassed” by Trump’s comments — while 59% are sometimes “concerned” by them. Some of the adjectives Pew ran by GOP or GOP-leaning voters were even stronger, including “angry,” “exhausted” and “frightened.”
