President Donald J. Trump’s former “fixer” Michael Cohen is writing a second book detailing the politicization of the Department of Justice under his former boss.

“It is fair and accurate to state that President Trump has weaponized the Department of Justice,” Cohen, said in an interview while promoting his book. His first publication was called, “Disloyal: A Memoir: The True Story of the Former Personal Attorney to President Donald J. Trump,” which was a number one New York Times bestseller.

“There’s so much more to the story that hasn’t been told, tangentially related to Donald Trump,” he told POLITICO in an interview Wednesday. “It is fair and accurate to state that President Trump has weaponized the Department of Justice against those he deems to be a threat thus making it into the Department of Injustice.”

Expected to be covered in the second book are the events that occurred when police used a warrant for the raid of Cohen’s office and hotel room and “his public opinions regarding the prosecutors who went after him, the banks and other witnesses who worked with the Justice Department, the judges who worked on his case, the Christopher Steele dossier, and how government officials dealt with him,” according to POLITICO.

Cohen said he worked on the book for about a month and is almost done with the outline. He is currently shopping the book for a publishing house.

Among other things, Giuliani alleged that that Arizona's process for picking its voting machines was "corrupt," even though he acknowledged he had no personal knowledge about how the process worked.

One claim, however, shocked Reuters legal reporter Brad Heath, who said it went beyond anything that Giuliani had argued before.

Georgia secretary of state: ‘There are those that are exploiting the emotions of many Trump supporters’

Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger warned on Monday that outside groups are trying to take advantage of the "emotions" of President Donald Trump's supporters with false information about the recent and upcoming elections.

"There are those that are exploiting the emotions of many Trump supporters with fantastic claims, half-truths, misinformation and, frankly, they are misleading the president as well," Raffensperger explained at a Monday press conference.

The Georgia official went on to announce investigations into over 250 claims of election irregularities.

"Upholding the law matters, truth matters, and your vote matters," he insisted. "Anyone telling you to boycott an election is not on your side. You're right to vote is sacred. Don't let someone con you out of it."

Biden taps Janet Yellen as Treasury secretary

Published

on

US President-elect Joe Biden on Monday formally tapped ex-Federal Reserve chair Janet Yellen to lead the Treasury, as he named officials to try to revitalize the world's largest economy.

The United States is struggling with a massive Covid-19 outbreak that's caused tens of millions of layoffs while sharply slowing annualized growth, and with cases surging again and Congress deadlocked over more aid.

If confirmed by the Senate, Yellen, 74, will be the first female Treasury head in its history, and likely be tasked with breaking the deadlock over aid in Washington, should lawmakers not come to an agreement before Biden's January inauguration.
