Ex-Trump Org VP speculates CFO Weisselberg probably knows of more Trump hush money payoffs

Published

on

Former Trump Organization executive vice president Barbara Res speculated on Friday that Allen Weisselberg, the company’s longtime chief financial officer, knows of at least five additional hush money conspiracies.

Res appeared on MSNBC’s “The Beat” with Ari Melber to discuss what Weisselberg will likely reveal when called to testify before the House Committee on Oversight and Reform.

“Do you think there may be other hush money payments you don’t know about?” Melber asked.

“Yes,” Res answered.

“How many?” Melber asked.

“Just instinctively, lots,” she replied.

“More than five?” he asked.

“Probably,” she answered.

“More than ten?” he asked.

“I can’t say,” she replied.

However many the number, they may have Trump’s signature on the check.

“Trump would do that kind of thing and Alan would be the guy who draw out the check, probably Trump would sign it himself,” she added.

Ken Starr is an awful choice for Trump’s legal team because he’ll look like a hypocrite: Former federal prosecutor

Published

on

President Donald Trump has a severe hypocrisy problem, and it has extended to his legal team. In a CNN explainer answering legal questions from viewers, former state and federal prosecutor Eli Honig explained that the choice of Ken Starr for Trump's legal team was a terrible idea.

Trump has chosen lawyers that are like a Fox News legal discussion panel. Pat Cipollone, Alan Dershowitz, Robert Wray, Pam Bondi and Jay Sekulow are all key people Trump has called on to defend him. But one person stands out, Honig explained. Ken Starr.

"He may emerge as a symbol of hypocrisy," Honig said. "He was the independent counsel who pursued Bill Clinton in the 1990s. Ken Starr turned over Heaven and Earth in his investigation of Bill Clinton. He talked to everyone who ever had known Monica Lewinsky, ex-boyfriends, teachers, window washers. And here he's going to say you shouldn't be hearing from primary witnesses?"

‘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.

If people of color showed up to a Capitol protest heavily armed — Trump would call them terrorists: commentator

Published

on

Legal analyst Areva Martin explained in a CNN panel discussion Sunday that the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. holiday has historically been a day in which white supremacists rear their ugly heads with racist protests and other public displays of bigotry. Monday's expected rally of racist gun nuts expected at the Virginia capitol is no different.

Colorblind author Tim Wise said that it's a whole different level with pro-gun activists. He noted that there was a message from the NRA that former President Barack Obama was going to take everyone's guns away. Of course, that never happened, but it was part of the narrative to scare sensible gun owners. Now, President Donald Trump is employing the same idea, saying that the rally of racists in Virginia is being spun by the president as another Democratic power-grab. Wise called it a kind of "front-lash" instead of "backlash."
