‘He’s playing games’: Michael Avenatti sounds a warning about Michael Cohen’s ABC News interview

Published

on

While the rest of the country reacted to news that Donald Trump’s longtime “fixer” and personal attorney Michael Cohen appeared to be distancing himself from his previous sworn loyalty to the president, attorney Michael Avenatti pointed out the bigger picture.

The lawyer for Trump mistress Stormy Daniels told MSNBC’s Hallie Jackson that Cohen’s off-camera interview with ABC’s George Stephanopoulos was “a big nothingburger.”

“This is Michael Cohen trying to send a message to the president that he wants the president to pay his legal bills or he’s going to flip,” Avenatti said.

“You know, he’s playing games with the American people,” he continued. “If he has information that’s damaging to this president — and I know for a fact that he does — then he should come forward and state it and disclose it now. He doesn’t have to wait for anything. He doesn’t have to wait for charges to be issued. He could do the right thing now.

Instead, Avenatti noted, Cohen is “playing games by giving these off-camera interviews like you saw today.”

President Donald Trump's psychological problems are getting worse and could be consequential as America faces a potential COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic.

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

on

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.”
