REVEALED: Michael Cohen paid for a fake Twitter account that touted him as a ‘sex symbol’

Published

on

Michael Cohen paid the chief information officer for Jerry Falwell Jr.’s evangelical university to game online polls for Donald Trump — and to promote himself as a sex symbol.

The former Trump Organization attorney, who has implicated the president in a federal election law violation, paid tech businessman John Gauger up to $13,000 for his work on the 2016 campaign, reported the Wall Street Journal.

Gauger, who owns RedFinch Solutions LLC and oversees information technology at Liberty University, told the newspaper he Cohen gave him a blue Walmart bag full of cash, along with a boxing glove the attorney claimed had been worn by a Brazilian mixed-martial arts fighter.

Cohen, however, requested the full $50,000 promised to RedFinch from Trump and his company, according to court documents.

Gauger told the Journal that he tried unsuccessfully to rig two online polls for Trump in 2015, and Cohen also asked him to help promote himself.

The attorney asked the tech officer to create a Twitter account called @WomenForCohen, which a woman friend of Gauger ran starting in May 2016, to praise Cohen’s looks and character.

“Women who love and support Michael Cohen,” reads the account’s profile. Strong, pit bull, sex symbol, no nonsense, business oriented and ready to make a difference!”

The social media account also promoted Cohen’s TV appearances and Trump’s campaign.

Trump and Cohen developed connections to Liberty University and its president in 2012, when Falwell invited the reality TV star to give a speech, and his then-attorney came along.

Gauger was introduced to Cohen soon after, and he helped the attorney set up an Instagram account.

Cohen asked him over the next several years to help boost positive online content for himself and friends, and he promised to connect RedFinch with executives at Trump’s hotels and golf courses, but never did.

Aaron Blake at the Washington Post noted that Trump and Graham have long been together on foreign policy issues, but something changed when it comes to Iran.

Accused child molester Roy Moore defends Brett Kavanaugh: ‘I too was the object of false allegations’

Published

Accused child molester Roy Moore on Wednesday came to the defense of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, who has been accused of sexual assault.

Moore's remarks came after The New York Times published accounts from a new book, which found that two of Kavanaugh's accusers were credible.

In a statement to the press, Moore defended Kavanaugh on Wednesday.

"I too was the subject of false allegations, but unlike Justice Kavanaugh and others who have suffered the ire of the left, I filed suit against my accusers and their conspirators," Moore said. "For over two years, I have not seen nor been able to question any of those who went on national television tol tell their false stories just 32 days before the election in December 2017, and ironically I have been sued for defamation for merely denying their false and malicious accusations."
