‘Cohen has tapes’: John Dean explains why Trump won’t be able to dodge revelations from fixer’s upcoming testimony

President Nixon’s former White House counsel explained to CNN Thursday why Donald Trump may be worried about his former “fixer” Michael Cohen’s testimony before Congress next month.

“Michael Cohen has deep knowledge and wide knowledge of President Trump and what happened during the campaign and so we’re finally putting a face on somebody who can talk with authority about these events,” John Dean said after news broke about the attorney’s February Congressional testimony.

Host Brianna Keilar noted that when Dean testified before Congress about Nixon, some dismissed what he had to say as “outrageous” — and the former White House counsel agreed.

“I was attacked not only by Nixon’s supporters and surrogates, I was attacked by Nixon in a number of his national addresses,” Dean said. “The tapes certainly resolved who was telling the truth and I’m not quite sure how it all would have turned out had there not been tapes.”

He then added: “I understand Michael Cohen has tapes as well.”

“I’m sure Trump doesn’t know which ones he does or does not have since it was Cohen doing the taping,” Dean said, adding, “I don’t know how many tapes there are, but certainly there’s no motive for Cohen to lie at this time about his work with Trump.”

CNN host stunned by Biden’s ‘jaw-dropping’ honesty about COVID — instead of urging Americans to ‘inject bleach’

Published

on

CNN host Alisyn Camerota found herself pleasantly surprised this week when she saw President-elect Joe Biden giving Americans an honest assessment of the current state of the novel coronavirus pandemic in the United States.

After playing a clip of Biden talking about the stark public health crisis facing the country while also acknowledging the sacrifices Americans are making this Thanksgiving, Camerota said it was a remarkable contrast with the kinds of messages President Donald Trump has been sending about the pandemic.

"You almost have to reprogram your brain to hear the reality, to hear somebody, a leader, level with the American public, and say, we need to redouble our efforts," she said. "We need to recommit to the fight, we need to steel our spine, as opposed to, it's going to magically go away or we should inject bleach."

‘We’ve never had a president act more like a Russian agent’: CNN’s Cuomo slams Trump’s attacks on democracy

Published

on

On CNN Wednesday, Chris Cuomo tore into President Donald Trump for his demand to "turn the election over" into a victory for him instead.

"Last time I heard a voice like that spouting nonsense like that with a screen that was lit up like that, it was Poltergeist. This is just as scary," said Cuomo. "As for all that evidence of mass voter fraud, they're nodding their heads, yes, yes, yes. Then why don't they offer some? At least 30 cases lost since Election Day, all for the same reason, conservative judges, liberal judges, conservative states, liberal states: no proof. Today, more nothing. Unsworn witnesses making claims of fraud that they suspected or largely heard about. All those Trumpers in power, think about it, all those different elections in states he lost, swing states, yet none of them came forward with anything real. What does that tell you?"

Anthony Scaramucci says there’s no chance Trump is running in 2024: ‘I know the guy’

Published

on

Anthony Scaramucci, former aide to President Donald Trump, told CNN's Chris Cuomo that he doesn't think there will be another MAGA campaign in 2024.

Trump is facing a number of state and federal lawsuits when he leaves office. Even if he manages to pardon himself or secure a pardon it would still leave tax and bank fraud cases.

"I actually think on January 21st, they're going to slice his throat metaphorically and they're going to push him out to pasture as hard as possible because you have all these young Republicans that want to run for president and Mitch McConnell knows that once he's out of power he has to dispatch them very quickly," Scaramucci said "By the way, Chris, you know the president's personality. I know it very well. The minute he leaves that stage, and it is no longer about him, he's not campaigning for other people. He's not going to go to diminishing crowd sized rallies for himself. And the bloom will be off the rose, and he'll be 75 years old. So, I see this thing ending way more abruptly than other people do."
