Fox News legal expert: Cohen’s testimony implicates Trump in ‘at least four potential felonies’

Published

on

Michael Cohen‘s day-long explosive testimony before Congress on Wednesday did not disappoint. According to Fox News’ legal expert Andrew Napolitano, Trump’s former attorney implicated the President in at “least four potential felonies.”

“If Cohen is being truthful and if the government can corroborate what he said,” Napolitano revealed, “there’s at least four potential felonies of which he has accused the President of the United States.”

The former judge also called them, “big ifs,” as The Hill reports.

Napolitano pointed to Cohen’s claim that Trump’s longtime advisor and friend Roger Stone gave Trump a heads-up about an upcoming Wikileaks dump of Hillary Clinton’s emails.

“If the conversation [Cohen] says he overheard with Roger Stone is true, then the president lied under oath, because the president swore to the accuracy of his answers to the written questions from [Special Counsel Robert Mueller], one of which was: ‘Did you speak to Roger Stone about Julian Assange?’ Answer: No,” Napolitano said.

That would be one possible felony. Another would be if Trump[ knew about the Trump Tower meeting with Don Jr. and the Russians.

“If what Michael Cohen says is true, that the president knew about the meeting with the Russians in Trump Tower in June 2016, then he lied under oath, because he told Bob Mueller he didn’t know about it,” he added.

The $35,000 check would be a potential felony committed while in office.

UK travel giant Thomas Cook set to collapse: report

Published

on

Thomas Cook's 178-year existence was reported to be coming to an end on Monday after the British travel firm struggled to find private investment to keep it afloat, potentially affecting thousands of holidaymakers.

The operator has said it needs £200 million ($250 million) or else it will face administration, which could affect 600,000 holidaymakers and require Britain's largest peacetime repatriation.

A source close to the negotiations told AFP that the company had failed to find the cash from private investors and would collapse unless the government intervened.

But ministers are unlikely to step in due to worries about the pioneering operator's longer-term viability, the Times reported, leaving it on the brink.

Published

In a powerful and passionate speech accepting his Emmy, "Pose" actor Billy Porter showered the audience with love and proudly reminded all of their right to belong and be loved.

"Oh, my God. God bless you all! The category is love, y'all, love!" Porter exclaimed.

The epic FX show "Pose" depicts Black and Latinos in the LGBTQ ballroom culture of New York City in the 1980s in the first season and the early 1990s in the second season.

"I am so overwhelmed and so overjoyed to have lived long enough to see this day," he said. "James Baldwin wrote, 'It took many years of vomiting up the filth I was taught about myself and half-believed, before I was able to walk on the earth as though I had a right to be here.' I have the right. You have the right. We all have the right."

A blockbuster Tutankhamun show set a new all-time French record Sunday, with 1.42 million visitors flocking to see the exhibition in Paris, the organisers said.

The turnout beat the previous record set by another Tutankhamun show billed as the "exhibition of the century" in 1967, when 1.24 million queued to see "Tutankhamun and His Times" at the Petit Palais.

"Tutankhamun: Treasures of the Golden Pharaoh" -- which has been described as a "once in a generation" show -- will open in London in November.

The last time a show of comparable size about the boy king opened there in 1972 it sparked "Tutmania", with 1.6 million people thronging the British Museum.
