On Thursday, President Donald Trump’s former personal attorney Michael Cohen announced he had uncovered a hard drive with 14 million files including “e-mails, voice recordings, images, and attachments from Mr. Cohen’s computers and phones,” and is prepared to hand them over to House Democrats to stay out of federal prison.

But his subsequent memo to lawmakers, first reported by BuzzFeed News, contains a stunning allegation not just about Trump, but about the Republican Party as a whole.

According to the memo, by Cohen attorneys Lanny Davis, Michael Monico, and Carly Chocron, this trove of evidence indicates “possible federal campaign finance violations by the Republican National Committee, including possibly illegal conduiting of illegal substantial donations to the RNC by foreign nationals, including from China.”

Cohen, who also served as deputy finance chair of the Republican National Committee, was sentenced to three years in prison for bank fraud, tax evasion, and campaign finance violations related to his payoffs to porn star Stormy Daniels to cover up her affair with the president.

He claims that he did this with the president’s blessing, and has subsequently sought to cooperate with both House Democrats and federal prosecutors with the Southern District of New York.

White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany is a loyal mouthpiece for President Donald Trump, both in presidential policy and against his political opponents in the election campaign. She has echoed Trump's attacks on Joe Biden, calling him a "radical socialist" and using monikers like "Sleepy."

But on Monday, CNN unearthed audio of McEnany from 2015 during an interview on New York AM970, in which she offered a very different view.

"I think the Republicans run into a problem if it is Joe Biden and if it is maybe a Trump on the other side," said McEnany. "Because Joe Biden, one of the things he is remarkable at is really kind of being a man of the people and resonating with middle class voters. Feeling like — coming off as human. His gaffes — as much as we make fun of them — to a certain extent they make him look human. So not, since he's likable."

Trump whines that he shouldn’t be blamed for ‘Lock Her Up!’ chants — as his supporters chant it

Published

President Donald J. Trump refuted responsibility for his rally cries of "lock her up" during a campaign stop in Martinsburg, Penn. Monday.

"Lock her up," the crowds chanted. To which Trump replied, "Now [the chants] are happening with [Joe] Biden because that's a crime family, frankly. But every time that happens, when they say, 'lock her up,' they always blame me and I have nothing to do with it."

Published

on

Texas Gov. Greg Abbott (R) announced that he is deploying troops to the polls in the state, something that a president can't even due because it can suppress the vote.

“The Texas Army National Guard said Monday it had been ordered to dispatch 1,000 troops to five major cities around the state in conjunction with the Nov. 3 election,” San Antonio Express-News reported on Monday.

It sent people into flames of rage claiming that it was an example of a Republican governor behaving like a segregationist from the 1950s.
