Could Stormy Daniels and Michael Cohen end up with the same attorney?

It seems improbable given the possible conflicts of interest in the ongoing matters involving President Trump’s personal attorney and the porn star he paid-off after conducting one of his affairs, but Michael Avenatti said it was possible in an appearance on MSNBC on Friday night.

Avenatti told host Ari Melber that he recently ran into Cohen at a restaurant in New York and that the men chatted.

“I think that Michael Cohen has been placed on an island. I’ve said this in the past. I think it was a grave mistake by the president, if there was anyone that the president should have been looking out after,” Avenatti said. “He should have been inviting Michael Cohen to the White House a long time ago.”

Melber asked Avenatti if he would ever help Cohen.

“I’m not going to say ‘no’ as it relates to potentially representing Michael Cohen,” he said. “If he was prepared to do the right thing and come clean and basically turn state’s evidence, I would absolutely consider it in an effort to disclose information and bring the truth to the American people.”

President Donald Trump spent some of his time at his Ohio rally Saturday, saying that under his leadership, the military has developed a secret hydrosonic missile.

There's just one problem: Hydrosonic is a toothbrush.

The Hydrosonic Pro is a Curaprox product that boasts "ultra-fine, gentle CUREN® filaments."Hypersonic missiles are weapons that can travel at 17 times the speed of sound and Navy warships will be outfitted with them. Trump also seems confused about the facts, saying that the missile travels at five times the speed of normal missiles.

Trump teases he may not have a peaceful transfer of power if he loses

Published

President Donald Trump was aghast when he was asked in the presidential debates if he would agree to a peaceful transfer of power.

The moment in the debate came when he dodged the question for weeks, refusing to agree to the long-standing tradition of presidents handing over the reins to the next leader.

"Well, we'll have to see what happens," Trump told reporters during a White House news conference. "You know that."

After weeks of bad press about it, Trump said he would agree to it.

"They spied heavily on my campaign and they tried to take down a duly elected sitting president, and then they talk about 'will you accept a peaceful transfer?' And the answer is, yes, I will, but I want it to be an honest election and so does everybody else," Trump said, adding, "When I see thousands of ballots dumped in a garbage can and they happen to have my name on it, I'm not happy about it."

One Pennsylvania polling place fell under a full out attack on those standing in line to vote and trying to cast a ballot on Saturday.

In a Twitter thread, Behavioral Economist Alex Imas explained that while he was casting his ballot on the outskirts of Philadelphia County, PA Saturday, a parade of semis and other cars surrounded the polling place, laying on their horns.

"I arrived just as polling place opened. Short line. Thought I'd be in and out in 20 minutes tops. Even w/ this short line, it took 2+ hours," he explained.

"Then the next Semi followed, then the 3rd," he continued. "A motorcade of semis, jeeps, and a few sedans drove down the road. All honking. All flying Trump 2020 flags. With people yelling out the window. This motorcade snaked around the polling place the entire time I was there (2 hrs)."
