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.

Trump ‘frustrated and angry’ that Americans care more about COVID-19 than his Biden smears: White House reporter

Published

on

President Donald Trump sees himself as the real victim of the coronavirus pandemic, and a White House correspondent says that's why he can't show sympathy for the 100,000 dead.

The president just can't bring himself to act as "consoler-in-chief," Associated Press reporter Jonathan Lemire told MSNBC's "Morning Joe," because he's frustrated over COVID-19's damage to his re-election campaign strategy.

"This is a president who has been from the very beginning of this crisis has been frustrated and angry this has happened to him, and ill-prepared," Lemire said. "He was going into this year expecting to run for re-election on the back of a strong economy against what he thought would be a weak Democratic foe, and that all went away."

Trump allies are starting to freak out over Biden’s lead: ‘Take the gloves off and put him away!’

Published

on

Allies of President Donald Trump are starting to worry that they're running out of time to seriously dent former Vice President Joe Biden's lead in the polls.

Politico reports that the Trump campaign has been hurling all kinds of mud at Biden -- including attacks on his mental state and his purported soft approach to China -- but so far none of it has stuck.

"Listen, the American voters remember Biden as the happy grandfather during the Obama presidency," a former Trump 2016 campaign official explained about the difficulty in bringing Biden down. "The more you can do to imprint a damaging impression of Biden heading into the fall, the better off the Trump campaign will be."

In an interview with The Daily Beast's Will Sommer, Griffin defended telling fellow activists at an anti-lockdown rally that "the only good Democrat is a dead Democrat."

"You get to pick your poison: you either go before a firing squad, or you get the end of the rope," he said. "I’ll tell you what, partner, as far as I’m concerned, there’s not an option that’s not on the table."
