Karen McDougal’s attorney has the perfect response to a Trump ally flipping after silencing her story

Published

on

In response to news that American Media Inc. Chairman David Pecker was granted immunity in exchange for information about Donald Trump and Michael Cohen colluding to silence former Playmate Karen McDougal, the adult model’s lawyer had the perfect comeback.

Pecker’s company publishes National Enquirer and bought the rights to McDougal’s story about her affair with the president and then killed it in the leadup to the 2016 campaign. Yesterday, the Wall Street Journal reported that he is cooperating with federal prosecutors and willingly providing information about the deal he made with Cohen and Trump.

On Twitter Thursday afternoon, McDougal’s attorney Peter Stris released a three-word, tongue-in-cheek statement: “Told you so.”

Linked in the tweet was a video from a March appearance on CNN’s The Situation Room in which he claimed McDougal “was tricked into signing a bogus contract with a quarter-billion-dollar company that happens to be run by a close, personal friend of Donald Trump.”

Published

on

Top Ukrainian officials were alerted in early August that $391 million in U.S. military aid had been frozen as President Donald Trump sought to pressure the country to investigate Joe Biden.

That undercuts the president's latest defense arguing that the foreign ally couldn't have felt pressured because Ukraine was not yet aware that the aid had been frozen, reported the New York Times.

Former Ukraine ambassador Bill Taylor told Congress on Tuesday that the freeze was directly related to Trump's demand for an announcement that Biden was under investigation.

William Consovoy, an attorney for President Donald Trump, argued in court on Wednesday that President Donald Trump is immune from prosecution if he literally shoots someone on Fifth Avenue.

At one point, Judge Denny Chin asked Consovoy about what he called the "Fifth Avenue example," referring to a Trump claim that he could shoot someone on Fifth Avenue and get away with it.
