Michael Cohen suggests the GOP took illegal donations from China — and he has the evidence

Published

on

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.

Democratic pressure on intel agencies exposed a motherlode of information on foreign meddling helping Trump: report

Published

on

On Saturday, Politico reported that congressional Democrats believe their pressure campaign on the intelligence community was crucial to exposing Russia's newest plot to interfere with U.S. elections on behalf of President Donald Trump.

"For weeks, top Democratic lawmakers in the House and Senate have been blaring warnings and demanding briefings and public disclosures from the intelligence community, shrugging off Republican charges that they’re politicizing intelligence," reported Andrew Desiderio and Kyle Cheney. "And Democrats can now point to evidence that their pressure campaign might be working. On Friday, the Trump administration’s counterintelligence chief publicly confirmed that Russia is attempting to harm Joe Biden’s candidacy in 2020. The official, William Evanina, even singled out a pro-Russia Ukrainian, Andrii Derkach, as a key participant in the Kremlin’s new effort."
