Cohen isn’t the only insider Trump needs to worry about: Meet accountant Allen Weisselberg

Published

on

President Donald Trump’s former fixer and personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, dropped several bombshells about the president’s alleged crimes during his Congressional testimony on Wednesday.

A report by The Daily Beast picked apart Cohen’s testimony and exposed the one Trump exec that could still hold damaging information about the president.

Democrats might be looking to subpoena Trump’s longtime chief financial officer Allen Weisselberg. The report explains that Cohen hinted at Weisselberg being an important member of Trump’s hush money scandal involving adult film star Stormy Daniels.

“In the process, he cast the spotlight on Weisselberg, a longtime member of the Trump operation since Fred ran it but a relative newcomer to the Donald Trump investigation,” The Beast wrote.

“News organizations had already reported that Weisselberg is the pseudonymous ‘Executive-1’ in Cohen’s plea agreement. Weisselberg doesn’t show up in the court documents’ narrative until around January 2017, when Cohen is trying to get paid back for the money he’d paid his boss’ mistress,” the report said.

However, the report explains that Weisselberg’s knowledge goes way beyond Daniels and that he may contain vital information about Trump’s taxes.

“Nor is Weisselberg’s potential knowledge limited to Stormy Daniels. Cohen testified that Trump fudged his net worth to make himself look richer on his personal financial statements.”

“Weisselberg may want to start picking out a testimony tie because it sounds an awful lot like the House Democrats are gearing up to subpoena him and potentially Donald Trump Jr,” the report said.

‘Comparing yourself to terrorists?’ Internet cracks up at Trump saying dead 9-11 hijackers got more justice than him

Published

on

President Donald Trump quoted Fox News host Mark Levin that left many scratching their heads. Levin, who has a show on Sunday evenings, claimed that the terrorists from Sept. 11 got more due process than the president.

The claim was a curious one because, as many on Twitter noted, it's not often that the president of the United States compares himself to a terrorist. Secondly, the 9-11 hijackers all died in the attack, as they were on the planes that crashed into the buildings and into a Pennsylvania field.

Trump is known to quote Levin frequently, though the citations often make the president look worse.

MLK was ‘gravely disappointed’ with white moderates — whom he believed were responsible for impeding civil rights

"We also realize that the problems of racial injustice and economic injustice cannot be solved without a radical redistribution of political and economic power."

—Martin Luther King Jr., 1967

This Martin Luther King Jr. Day comes as moderate Democrats, falling in line behind former vice president Joe Biden, are warning that the party risks re-electing Donald Trump if it nominates too radical a candidate for president — by which they mean someone like Senators Bernie Sanders or Elizabeth Warren.

Harvard law professor Laurence Tribe catches Alan Dershowitz in humiliating hypocrisy: ‘He’s not to be trusted’

Published

on

Harvard Constitutional law professor Laurence Tribe called out President Donald Trump's lawyer, Alan Dershowitz, Sunday on Twitter, noting that his opinions seem to evolve depending on who he's defending.

Dershowitz is on a kind of press junket for the president, defending him in various media appearances. The former lawyer to Jeffrey Epstein is handling Trump's defense as it pertains to the abuse of power. Dershowitz thinks that charge has no basis in law. In fact, impeachment trials aren't actually legal proceedings, they're political proceedings, because the Justice Department claimed that Trump can't be indicted under the law while he's president.
