Update: Today, on the 16th of April 2018, Mr. Michael Cohen was required to list the names of his clients. He named 3 gentlemen, President Donald Trump, the former RNC fund raiser, Elliott Broidy and the FOX TV conservative host, Sean Hannity.

Mr. Cohen and his attorneys fought hard not to disclose this name but the judge wasn’t buying it. She ordered that the name be disclosed there and then.

Sean Hannity’s response:

As per the 4/16/18 NYT report Judge Kimba Wood, “rejected an attempt by President Trump and his long time personal attorney Michael Cohen to block prosecutors in Manhattan from reviewing a trove of materials seized in F.B.I. raids last week on Mr. Cohen’s office, home, hotel room and safe deposit box.”

“But feeling her way toward a resolution of the clash involving Mr. Trump and prosecutors investigating Mr. Cohen, the judge, Kimba M. Wood, signaled that she was considering appointing a special master to assist prosecutors if and when they cull through documents seized in the raids.”

By now we all know that on the 9th of April 2018, the FBI raided the offices, house and hotel room of the republican President Donald Trump’s personal attorney Michael Cohen who self describes himself as a fixer, in the style of Ray Donovan.

Mr Cohen has learned that he  has been under criminal investigation for months.

The White House was up in arms when the president was informed that Mr. Cohen had a habit of recording his conversations, and the tapes may very well be in the custody of the FBI.

Then the 4/13/18 McClatchy report was published detailing that “the Justice Department special counsel has evidence that Donald Trump’s personal lawyer and confidant, Michael Cohen, secretly made a late-summer trip to Prague during the 2016 presidential campaign, according to two sources familiar with the matter.”

“Confirmation of the trip would lend credence to a retired British spy’s report that Cohen strategized there with a powerful Kremlin figure about Russian meddling in the U.S. election.”

On Friday, the 13th of April 2018, Mr Cohen’s attorney went to court to argue for a “temporary restraining order” (TRO) to keep the Feds from reviewing the material collected during the FBI raid on the basis that much of what the FBI has, deals with the issue of attorney-client privilege.

The Southern District Court of New York prosecutors were ready with their argument that Michael Cohen hasn’t been practicing law in ages but he has been acting more like a  consigliere.

Whereupon, U.S. District Judge Kimba Wood asked Mr. Cohen’s attorney to name one of his clients which he couldn’t do. Then Judge Wood ordered that the attorney return with his client, Michael Cohen in tow, ready to answer some questions on the 16th of April 2018.

Meanwhile, Cohen's own attorneys were due in court, as they tried to prevent the Justice Department from examining Cohen's files that were taken during the raid. Federal prosecutors said they went through with the raid without a subpoena because they believed the material

Meanwhile, a video of Michael Cohen has been showing on the TV cable news shows of him enjoying cigars with some friends outside the Loews Regency.

The host, Jake Tapper addressed the Cohen chill-session on CNN Friday afternoon, noting he was “sitting outside his hotel, hanging out, not a care in the world, even though he is under criminal investigation.” CNN also reported that Trump called Cohen on Friday.

I suspect that he heard about the Scooter Libby pardon granted by President Trump.

But it just so happens that the president’s personal attorney Michael Cohen is a resident of New York City where a significant portion of his businesses are managed. Some of the criminal activity that Mr. Cohen maybe guilty of, could fall under the jurisdiction of the state courts where the presidential pardon has no reach. And yes, the federal and state courts could coordinate the efforts of their judicial officials.

Here is the rest of the story….

On April 15, 2018, Dan Mangan of CNBC penned the following report, “Stormy Daniels will be in court for hearing on President Trump’s lawyer Michael Cohen”

Excerpts:

  • “A lawyer for adult film actress Stormy Daniels said she will be in court Monday for a hearing sought by President Trump’s attorney Michael Cohen.”
  • “Cohen’s office, home, hotel room and electronic devices were raided by the FBI last week.”
  • “Cohen paid Daniels $130,000 on the eve of the 2016 presidential election, in exchange for what she alleges was her silence about an affair with Trump.”

“A lawyer for Stormy Daniels said on 4/15/18, the adult film actress will be in court Monday for the resumption of a hearing sought by President Donald Trump‘s attorney Michael Cohen.”

“Cohen was the target of an FBI raid last week, and the person who paid Daniels $130,000 on the eve of the 2016 presidential election.”

“Documents about that payoff, which Daniels has said was in exchange for her silence about an affair she had with Trump in 2006, were among the items seized from Cohen by the FBI.”

Cohen is expected to make his first appearance at the hearing in U.S. District Court in New York, where his presence has been ordered by a judge considering his request on how to handle materials seized in the FBI raid.

During an appearance on CNN’s “State of the Union,” Daniels’ lawyer Michael Avenatti, revealed she would be there to watch Cohen.

“I think Monday afternoon could prove to be very interesting,” Avenatti said.

Stormy Daniels WILL attend Monday’s Michael Cohen hearing, @MichaelAvenatti says on @CNNSOTU. “She will attend at 2 o’clock in New York on Monday.”

Asked by CNN if Daniels’ presence was meant to provoke Cohen, Avenatti said, “No, not at all.”

“It’s intending to send a message that this is a very serious matter for her, and she wants to make sure that the American people know that she’s behind efforts to bring to light as much information and documents as possible,” Avenatti said.

But Avenatti, who was at the initial court hearing Friday related to Cohen’s request, in a subsequent tweet on Sunday morning referenced a scene from “The Godfather II.” In that particular part of the movie, a Mafia turncoat recants his testimony after mob boss Michael Corleone brings the informant’s own brother with him to watch that testimony.

The beginning of one of my favorite movie scenes of all time. Frank Pentangeli’s brother Vincenzo arrives from Sicily for the hearing…

“In addition to files about Daniels, FBI agents reportedly sought information about a payoff to another woman who said she had an affair with Trump when they seized materials seized in the New York City raid on Cohen’s office, home, hotel room and electronic devices last Monday.”

“The raid, which also sought filed related to Cohen’s business interests, enraged Trump, who claims it violated attorney-client privilege he has with Cohen.”

“Prosecutors conducting a criminal investigation of Cohen have said they have been probing Cohen for months, and that a grand jury has been reviewing evidence. Prosecutors also said that covert surveillance was conducted on several email accounts of his before Monday’s raid.”

“Prosecutors said they were worried that if the FBI did not conduct those raids that evidence related to the case could end up being destroyed without a trace.

“The United States Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York, which is handling the case, plans to avoid violating the attorney-client privilege by using a special process to handle materials seize from Cohen.”

Michael Avenatti

“That process calls for a so-called filter team made up of prosecutors not associated with the case would review the materials, determine which ones are protected by privilege, and hand over the remaining materials to the prosecutors in the case. The U.S. Attorney’s office has noted that that process has been used in the past in criminal cases against lawyers.”

“But Cohen in a court filing late Thursday night requested a different process, one that prosecutors say would be unprecedented. Cohen wants his own lawyers to review the material, determine what information is privileged, and then turn over the unprivileged evidence to prosecutors.”

“Failing that, Cohen is asking that a so-called special master judge be named to review the materials, to avoid privileged documents from being seen by the prosecution.”

  1. I’m curious if Stormy (Stephanie Clifford) cashed the check the Cohen gave her, or was it done under the table with cash? In either case, i’m sure Stormy has some kind of proof regarding the hush money, perhaps a contract was signed? She can use that as evidence in a court of law.

    Mr Cohen certainly has some ‘splaining to do!

  2. Reblogged this on The Resistance Club and commented:
    This is far too significant to miss. Thanks to Goronda Morin. Although it is not surprising as most intelligent thinkers in the world know by now that Trump is a mafia and a low life Gangster so as his associates. We Also know that (BOTUS) the Bastard of the United States, president-want-to-be-Trump thinks that he is above the law and he can over rule the rule of law. He does not understand that being a president of a company is not like being a president of the United States. You work for me you slime ball. Additionally, in psychology there is a phenomenon known as “PROJECTION” – Donald Trump calls anyone who go against him all the terms and adjectives that he is: a liar, a slime ball, a phony, an incompetent, and all. Dodo, you are gone America’s worst enemy – gone bye bye with your fellow gangsters.

    • Dear Dr. Sabri Bebawi, PhD,

      The president does want to operate like a mafia don. This explains his antipathy for any resistance or a supposed lack of loyalty.

      He can’t understand that the FBI and the DOj agents do not owe their primary loyalty to him but to the “rule of law” and to the US Constitution.

      He doesn’t get that the job of the press is to be a check on power. If they let him get away with all his lies, they as professionals are not doing their jobs.

      None of the above institutions are above making mistakes but there are checks and standards which they are obligated to follow.

      It seems as if the president does not think he should be bound by any standards, rules, checks. It is obvious that he picked the wrong job. He keeps trying to bend the system to his will but he has been met with lots of resistance by folks who will not allow his behaviors to be normalized.

      It is frustrating to see that too many of the GOP in the US Congress who have sold their souls because they are afraid to lose their cushy jobs, that they are letting him denigrate the Office of the Presidency. They are afraid to upset the president’s base of voters. With this cowardice, they are betraying their oath of office to protect this country and the US Constitution.

      Thanks a million times for your support and for this reblog.

  3. Dear Mz. Gronda,

    Question, is Sean H. was the source of money for the “Hush Fund”, would it be a criminal act?

  4. Hi there, GM< my dear friend!! Awesome post … I do believe that the two men in the top photo are M. Cohen and Mark Cuban … could you check it out? Hugs …. ❤

    • Dear Horty,

      You are right about the picture. Mr. Cuban was hanging out with Mr. Cohen. For me this reality show is a Shakespearean type comedy where it is the sexy porn star who brings down the bully mean President Trump. And the rule of law prevails.

      Thanks a million times over for your support and for this reblog.

      Hugs, Gronda
