Trump fixer Michael Cohen’s lawyers flee — and he’s likely to flip soon: report

Published

on

A new report from ABC News claims that longtime Trump attorney Michael Cohen is getting close to accepting a deal to cooperate with federal investigators.

According to ABC’s sources, the law firm that has been representing Cohen so far “is not expected to represent him going forward” after this week.

The bigger news, however, is that Cohen is now likely to flip after being abandoned by his current legal counsel.

“Cohen, now with no legal representation, is likely to cooperate with federal prosecutors in New York,” the ABC report claims. “This development, which is believed to be imminent, will likely hit the White House, family members, staffers and counsels hard.”

Cohen and his attorneys have until Friday to complete a privilege review of more than 3.7 million documents that were seized as part of an FBI raid on Cohen’s office earlier this year. Once that review is complete, ABC News claims, then Cohen will be without counsel.

Vanity Fair’s Gabriel Sherman reported on Tuesday that Cohen has told friends that he expects to be arrested within a matter of days, although Cohen at the time publicly denied that was true.

MSNBC's Lawrence O'Donnell on Thursday interviewed Dr. Lance Dodes, a former assistant clinical professor of psychiatry at Harvard Medical School.

"As you pointed out, Lawrence, this man is about himself. He really is not about the country, he's not about public health," Dr. Dodes said of Trump.

"Although he has already severely damaged the country by being a psychopath or sociopath -- in many ways, he's damaged democracy -- I think people's lives will be lost now," he warned. "Individual lives will be lost because of the way he's mishandling the coronavirus issue."

‘Something really rotten’: Here’s the evidence of extensive voter suppression in Georgia’s notorious 2018 election

Published

As the 2020 presidential campaign cycle grinds on, there’s renewed concern about the 21st century’s newest form of warfare: cyber-sabotage of government systems, including elections and online disinformation intended to incite unrest. But as Suppressed: The Fight to Vote, a documentary from Brave New Films, makes clear, partisan voter suppression tactics with 20th-century roots remain and can thwart multitudes of voters from changing their state’s political leaders.

The real story behind Trump’s new lawsuit against the New York Times

Published

on

Wednesday was an ominous day for freedom of the press in this country, and I want to tell you why.

You may have heard or seen that President Trump filed a libel suit against the New York Times. Perhaps you weren’t surprised: the president is known to frequently disparage the Times even as he reads it obsessively. Borrowing a page from what I’ve referred to before as a Mount Rushmore of totalitarians, Robespierre, Hitler, Stalin and Mao, Trump loves to call the press the “enemy of the people.”
