Michael Cohen buddy Donny Deutsch ‘saw the obstruction of justice in real-time’

Published

on

One of Michael Cohen’s close friends says he had a front-row seat to see President Donald Trump commit obstruction — and may even be interviewed by special counsel Robert Mueller as a fact witness.

Donny Deutsch joined MSNBC’s “Deadline: White House” with Nicolle Wallace on Wednesday to discuss Cohen postponing testimony to the House Oversight Committee after attacks from President Donald Trump.

“Is Cohen legitimately afraid for his safety and that of his family?” Wallace asked.

“I’ll give it to you in real-time, because I had a front-row seat,” Deutsch replied. “I happened to speak to Michael after the interview. He said, ‘I’m not doing it, I’m not testifying. My wife is sitting here crying. They’re calling out my poor father-in-law, 80-something, a man who’s never done anything.'”

“I literally saw the obstruction of justice in real-time,” Deutsch noted.

“There are other threats happening also, that happen every day that magnified a thousand-fold. The things he gets written to about his daughter that are so heinous — just since he started to talk about testifying in Congress,” he explained.

Despite the attacks, Deutsch said that Cohen still intends to openly testify to Congress before he begins his 3 year prison sentence in March.

“He almost wants to puke it out of him,” Deutsch said.

“He wants to come puke it out on our table, we’ll host any day,” Wallace joked.

“He doesn’t really want to puke it out, he wants to tell the story,” Deutsch clarified.

“Honestly, for all of the dirty things he did, out of what he’s now acknowledged was stupid, blind loyalty to Donald Trump, I could imagine he feels like he wants to puke it out,” Wallace added.

Deutsch also revealed that MSNBC legal analyst and former federal prosecutor Glenn Kirschner told him he might be called as a witness due to his friendship with Cohen.

Maggie Haberman details the insane few hours Trump had a impeachment lawyer — before he was basically out

Published

on

For one brief day this week, President Donald Trump hired former Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC) to help him with a recently launched impeachment inquiry by the House. It took mere hours before the footage was revealed of Gowdy attacking the previous White House for not providing requested documents about Hillary Clinton.

While an impeachment inquiry is supposed to give more teeth to a Congressional investigation, the White House has still refused to cooperate, comply with subpoenas or even allow department staffers to appear and answer questions.

Published

President Donald Trump appears to be waging his own war against Fox News hosts that report the factual news and not opinions.

Friday, longtime Fox newsman Shep Smith was officially released from his contract, at his request and fellow Fox staffers are warning it's only the beginning. But now, it seems the president is seeing his sights on ridding the network of anyone who doesn't parrot his policies, politics, talking points or dares to fact-check him.

Robert Reich walks through all the ways Trump is selling America to foreign powers for his own personal profit

Published

on

Notorious class warrior Robert Reich wrote a sharp attack of President Donald Trump for his international policies that are doing nothing more than scoring him personal cash and power.

Writing for The Guardian, Reich called Trump "the most xenophobic and isolationist American president in modern history," saying that the president has been "selling America to foreign powers for his own personal benefit."

While Trump promised during the 2016 election that he would "bring troops home," it was likely assumed that Trump meant the decades-long wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. The work on the ground in Syria was mostly being done by Kurdish allies and not American soldiers. The number of troops on the ground in Syria, prior to Turkey beginning their bombing campaign, was relatively low.
