Trump tried to buy up decades worth of dirt the National Enquirer had on him: report

Published

on

According to a report at the New York Times, the scandal tabloid National Enquirer had an accumulation of stories acquired over decades on Donald Trump that he made efforts to purchase.

Trump and his personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, put together a plan to buy all of those stories in order to bury them, in much the same way that they buried the story about his reported affair to adult actress Stormy Daniels, by using possibly illegal payoffs.

According to the report, a phone conversation taped by Cohen had him saying, “It’s all the stuff — all the stuff, because you never know.”

The Times based their report on insiders who knew about the discussions but would speak about them only on condition of anonymity, so as not to be drawn into the legal cases swirling around both Cohen and the president.

The report goes on to state that the two never followed through but that it was “strongly hinted at in a recording that Mr. Cohen’s lawyer released last month of a conversation about payoffs that Mr. Cohen had with Mr. Trump.”

According to the report, it was not disclosed how much the Enquirer and it’s owner, American Media, has on Trump and whether any of that information has been handed over to federal investigators.

"This is the story of a coward and a commander," said the ad's narrator. "The coward Trump dodged the draft. Jim Mattis led American troops for forty years. While a frightened Trump hides from protesters in a deep bunker firing off tweets, Jim Mattis does what he's always done: Leads. While Donald Trump angrily attacks, General Mattis' words deserve to be heard by every American."

Maxine Waters calls for Trump’s Cabinet initiate the 25th Amendment ‘before this would-be dictator takes us all down’

Published

Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) called for Donald Trump to be removed from office on Friday.

"Is there one brave member of Trump’s cabinet who would move to initiate the 25th Amendment to remove him from office?" Waters asked on the president's favorite social networking platform.

The 25th Amendment would allow Vice President Mike Pence to ascend to the presidency if a majority of Trump's cabinet declares "the president is unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office."

"Now is the time to save our country before this would-be dictator takes us all down!" Waters warned.
