    Squire Patton Boggs hiring/working with Mr. Cohen makes no sense. That firm usually only hires and works with the most highly educated, competent lawyers. We know of money flowing between EC, LLC & the law firm. They need to come clean & release ALL of the details re: Mr. Cohen.

    Giuliani says he wouldn’t debate Avenatti 'if they paid me $10 million' | POLITICO

    Excerpts:

    “I wouldn’t debate that guy if they paid me $10 million,” Giuliani, a new lawyer for President Donald Trump, told POLITICO in an interview on Friday. “He’s a liar. All he does is put out statements in the press and they fawn all over him.”

    “I don’t debate people like him. I’m not going to give him all that time on television,” the former New York mayor said. “What did he ever run for? What public service did he ever do? I’m going to debate him? This guy is a clown. He wants to do a debate like Billy Jean King and Bobby Riggs?”

    Michael Avenatti‏ @MichaelAvenatti 28 minutes ago
    Remarkable job Mr. Giuliani. A+. Bravo.
    The truth is about to catch up to Trump. He has Giuliani to thank for it.
    https://www.washingtonpost.com/blog...-up-to-trump-he-has-giuliani-to-thank-for-it/

    Quoting the Washington Post article linked above:

    Today is the deadline for President Trump to file his financial disclosure form for 2017. That fact may seem trivially bureaucratic, but lurking at its core is a dilemma for Trump that continues to metastasize into something ever more grotesque.

    The need to submit this form shows that in the Stormy Daniels matter, Trump has been boxed in by his lawyer (sic) Rudy Giuliani — and by his own tweets — with no good way out.

    The Post reports that Stormy’s lawyer, Michael Avenatti, is using Trump-like tactics, such as flooding the media zone and trash-talking about his opponents, leading some legal experts to question whether Avenatti is truly acting in his client’s best interests. Some Republicans suggest Avenatti is really out to get Trump.

    But the Daniels story is being driven to no small degree by Trump himself — by his efforts to outrun the facts, and by the ways in which those facts are catching up with him. And Trump’s financial disclosure report will be an important marker in that tale.

    Here’s the problem for Trump: He needs to decide whether to disclose the debt he incurred to his personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, when Cohen paid $130,000 to Daniels just before the election, buying her silence about their alleged affair. Trump did not disclose this debt in the financial disclosure form he filed one year ago — back when this payment, and Trump’s reimbursement of it, remained unknown.

    But thanks to Giuliani, we now know that Trump did, in fact, incur this debt to Cohen. In January, the Wall Street Journal broke the news of Cohen’s payment to Daniels. But it was Giuliani who recently admitted to Sean Hannity that Trump had paid Cohen back, which forced Trump to issue two tweets acknowledging that he agreed to reimburse Cohen for the payment via a “monthly retainer.”

    As it is, that blew up Trump’s previous lie on Air Force One that he didn’t know about the payment. But now it gets worse. Trump is in the awkward position of deciding what to say about his liability to Cohen on his financial disclosure form. “He has to disclose any liability he had over $10,000 at any point in 2017,” Noah Bookbinder, the executive director of Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington, told me this morning.

    Helpfully enough, Giuliani has also laid out a detailed timeline of Trump’s payments to BuzzFeed, acknowledging that Trump agreed to give Cohen $35,000 per month starting early in 2017, which continued throughout the year. “This was a liability of well over $10,000 through much if not all of 2017,” Bookbinder told me.

    Thanks to Giuliani, Trump’s excuse for not disclosing this liability has now evaporated. To justify his failure to disclose it on his 2017 form — which detailed his finances for 2016 — Trump could claim he didn’t know about Cohen’s payment or make any agreement to reimburse it. Whether that’s plausible or not, we can’t really disprove it. But now we know that Trump did take on this debt in 2017, because Giuliani compelled him to admit it — by blurting out the truth.

    The plot gets even more tangled. That’s because we have since learned that Cohen made the payment from a company he created called Essential Consultants, and that Cohen and/or his company may have made payments for Trump to other women as well. Giuliani admitted to ABC News that there may have been other payments, saying: “I would think if it was necessary, yes.”

    And so, if Trump agreed to reimburse those payments as well, these liabilities would also have to be disclosed on his financial form — because Trump must indicate the amount of his liabilities within a general range.

    Bookbinder points out to me that the amount of debt Trump acknowledges to Cohen — if, say, he notes liabilities that are well in excess of $130,000 — will raise additional questions along these lines.

    “He going to have to check a box that will give us a ballpark” for his liabilities to Cohen, Bookbinder says. “That will tell us a lot about whether there were additional payments by Cohen to benefit the president.”

    Of course, Trump could try to conceal such additional liabilities while only admitting to reimbursing the Daniels payment. But then he’d be lying on his financial disclosure form, and those payments (and liabilities) could subsequently come out, revealing Trump’s effort to conceal them. Trump could also try to find additional loopholes, such as claiming that the reimbursement was a campaign expenditure, which wouldn’t have to be noted. But as Walter Shaub and Adav Noti point out in a piece on this whole dilemma, Giuliani foreclosed that option, too, when he insisted that the payment was not campaign-related.

    Trump could very well seek an extension of 30 days on his form. But he can’t outrun these facts forever. And hopefully, this will illustrate that there are limits on just how tangled Trump’s web of lies can grow before it finally traps him.

    Judge Rules That Robert Mueller Can Prosecute Paul Manafort | Time

    Quote:

    A federal judge in Washington ruled Tuesday that special counsel Robert Mueller was working within his authority when he brought charges against President Donald Trump’s former campaign chairman.

    The decision was a setback for Paul Manafort in his defense against charges of money-laundering conspiracy, false statements and acting as an unregistered foreign agent. Manafort had argued that Mueller had exceeded his authority because the case was unrelated to Russian election interference.

    But U.S. District Judge Amy Berman Jackson disagreed, siding with prosecutors who had produced an August 2017 memo from Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein. The memo shows Rosenstein authorized Mueller to investigate Manafort’s Ukrainian work and related financial crimes.

    Jackson had previously thrown out a civil case Manafort brought challenging Mueller’s authority.

    Peter Carr, a spokesman for the special counsel’s office, declined to comment.

    The decision allows one of two criminal cases against Manafort to proceed.

    In addition to the Washington indictment, Manafort also faces charges in Virginia of bank fraud and tax evasion. The Virginia indictment accuses him of hiding tens of millions of dollars he earned advising pro-Russia politicians in Ukraine from 2006 through 2015. It also accuses him of fraudulently obtaining millions in loans from financial institutions including while he worked for the Trump campaign.

    Trump form discloses debt payment to Cohen, lawyer who paid Stormy Daniels | NBC News

    Last year, Trump did not disclose any debts to attorney Michael Cohen, who executed a payment of $130,000 to Clifford less than two weeks before the 2016 election.

    Quote:

    President Donald Trump reported that he reimbursed personal attorney Michael Cohen for costs apparently incurred in paying adult film star Stormy Daniels for a non-disclosure agreement, according to a federally required annual financial disclosure form released by the Office of Government Ethics Wednesday.

    "In the interest of transparency, while not required to be disclosed as 'reportable liabilities' ... in 2016 expenses were incurred by one of Donald J. Trump's attorneys, Michael Cohen," a note at the bottom of Page 45 of the 92-page report states. "Mr. Cohen sought reimbursement of those expenses and Mr. Trump fully reimbursed Cohen in 2017. The category of value would be $100,001 to $250,000 and the interest rate would be zero."

    The acting director of OGE, David J. Apol, concluded that Trump's report "meets the disclosure requirements" — the outside group Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington had filed a complaint that Trump's 2017 form had improperly omitted a "loan" from Cohen — but noted that making that debt public "is required."

    Ethics watchdog: Trump should have disclosed Cohen payment last year | TheHill

    Quote:

    A federal ethics official sent the Department of Justice (DOJ) a copy of President Trump's financial disclosure forms on Wednesday, suggesting a payment Trump made to his longtime personal lawyer Michael Cohen in 2016 should have been reported last year.

    The Office of Government Ethics (OGE) sent a copy of Trump’s financial disclosure forms from 2017 and 2018 to Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein following a complaint filed in March calling for an investigation into whether Trump knowingly left the payment off of last year’s disclosure forms.

    “I am providing both reports to you because you may find the disclosure relevant to any inquiry you may be pursuing regarding the President’s prior report that was signed on June 14, 2017,” David Apol, acting director for the OGE, wrote May 16.

    Apol was referencing a complaint from Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW), a left-leaning watchdog group.

    Trump officially acknowledged for the first time on his financial disclosure Wednesday that he paid Cohen more than $100,000 for expenses he “incurred” in 2016.

    Cohen has acknowledged he paid adult-film star Stormy Daniels $130,000 in October 2016 as part of a non-disclosure agreement related to her alleged affair with Trump a decade earlier.

    CREW had filed a complaint in March with the OGE and the DOJ questioning whether a payment from Cohen on Trump's behalf constituted a loan that should have been reported as a liability. The group called for an investigation into whether Trump willfully left the payment off of his 2017 forms.

    CREW said in a statement that Trump’s disclosure forms vindicated its complaint, and reiterated its calls for an investigation.

    “It is good… the president came clean about this liability on this year’s form, but we now have to wonder how many other liabilities for similar payments he has that he still has not disclosed,” CREW Executive Director Noah Bookbinder said in a statement.

    Apol suggested in his letter to Rosenstein that Trump's payment to Cohen should have been disclosed on the president's forms that he signed on June 14, 2017, which applied to the 2016 calendar year.

    The document released Wednesday does not specify the reason for Trump's payment to Cohen, but OGE said it “meets the disclosure requirements for a reportable liability.”

    Senate panel breaks with House, says Russia sought to help Trump win in 2016 | TheHill

    Quote:

    Leaders of the Senate Intelligence Committee said Wednesday that they agree with the intelligence community’s assessment that Russia interfered in the 2016 presidential election and sought to help President Trump win the White House.

    “We see no reason to dispute the conclusions,” Chairman Richard Burr (R-N.C.) said in a statement.

    “There is no doubt that Russia undertook an unprecedented effort to interfere with our 2016 elections.”

    As part of its investigation into Russian meddling, the committee has for several months been reviewing the January 2017 assessment compiled by top U.S. intelligence officials.

    The assessment found that Russia sought to interfere in the election for three reasons: to undermine U.S. democracy, to damage Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton and to help Trump win the White House.

    On Wednesday, committee lawmakers met behind closed doors with former top intelligence officials who played a major role in compiling the assessment. In a joint statement following that meeting, Burr and Vice Chairman Mark Warner (D-Va.) signaled their agreement with the findings.

    “After a thorough review, our staff concluded that the [intelligence community assessment] conclusions were accurate and on point,” Warner said. “The Russian effort was extensive, sophisticated, and ordered by President Putin himself for the purpose of helping Donald Trump and hurting Hillary Clinton.”

    Their statement represents a break with the Republican-led House investigation, which did not support the conclusion that Russia sought to help Trump win.

    Mueller issues grand jury subpoenas to Trump adviser's social media consultant | Reuters

    Quote:

    U.S. Justice Department Special Counsel Robert Mueller has issued two subpoenas to a social media expert who worked for longtime Donald Trump adviser Roger Stone during the 2016 presidential election campaign.

    The subpoenas were delivered late last week to lawyers representing Jason Sullivan, a social media and Twitter specialist Stone hired to work for an independent political action committee he set up to support Trump, Knut Johnson, a lawyer for Sullivan, told Reuters on Tuesday.

    The subpoenas suggest that Mueller, who is probing Russian meddling in the 2016 U.S. presidential election, is focusing in part on Stone and whether he might have had advance knowledge of material allegedly hacked by Russian intelligence and sent to WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, who published it.

    Stone appeared before the U.S. House of Representatives Intelligence Committee last September and denied allegations of collusion between the president’s associates and Russia during the election. “I am aware of no evidence whatsoever of collusion by the Russian state or anyone in the Trump campaign,” Stone told reporters at the time.

    According to sources familiar with the ongoing investigation, Mueller also has been probing whether anyone associated with the Trump campaign may have helped Assange or the Russians time or target the release of hacked emails and other social media promoting Trump or critical of Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton.

    A spokesman for Mueller declined to comment. Russia has denied interfering in the election. President Trump has repeatedly denied his campaign colluded with Russia.

    Sullivan told Reuters that he heads Cyphoon.com, a social media firm, and “worked on the Trump campaign serving as Chief Strategist directly to Roger J. Stone Jr.”

    “Welcome To The Age of Weaponized Social Media,” said a strategy document Sullivan prepared for Stone and seen by Reuters. He described a “system” he devised for creating Twitter “swarms” as “an army of sophisticated, hyper-targeted direct tweet automation systems driven by outcomes-based strategies derived from REAL-TIME actionable insights.”

    For example, at 6:43 a.m. local time on Election Day in 2016, Trump tweeted, “TODAY WE MAKE AMERICAN GREAT AGAIN”. Trump’s message soon was retweeted more than 343,000 times, and in an interview last year, Sullivan told Reuters that the swarm helped overcome a surge in pro-Clinton social media postings and boost voter turnout for Trump.

    Michael Cohen worked on Trump Moscow deal well into 2016

    Quote:

    Prosecutors and congressional investigators have obtained text messages and emails showing that President Trump’s personal attorney, Michael Cohen, was working on a deal for a Trump Tower in Moscow far later than Cohen has previously acknowledged. The communications show that, as late as May 2016, around the time Trump was clinching the Republican nomination, Cohen was considering a trip to Russia to meet about the project with high-level government officials, business leaders and bankers.

    Cohen has said that, beginning in September 2015, he worked with a Russian-born developer named Felix Sater to build a luxury hotel, office, and apartment complex called Trump World Tower Moscow. In a statement to Congress, Cohen claimed he gave up on the project in late January 2016 when he determined the “proposal was not feasible for a variety of business reasons and should not be pursued further.”

    However, Yahoo News has learned that text messages and emails that Sater provided to the government seem to contradict Cohen’s version of events. The communications show Cohen was discussing the deal until at least May 2016.

    Multiple sources have described the texts and emails with Cohen that Sater has provided the government to Yahoo News. Sater confirmed to Yahoo News that he provided all of his texts and emails with Cohen to Mueller’s team as well as the House Intelligence Committee and the Senate’s intelligence and judiciary committees.

    Sater also confirmed that his communications chronicled his extensive efforts to get the tower built.

    “I was trying to build the tallest tower in Europe. For me, it was a business transaction,” Sater told Yahoo News.

    “I have fully cooperated with every investigation and every committee. I have provided absolutely everything voluntarily and not under subpoena that was asked of me and will continue to willingly cooperate. All my communications show I was tenaciously trying to get a super tall tower built and nothing else.”

    Cohen and his attorneys have not responded to requests for comment on this story.

    'They've got nothing': Rudy Giuliani calls on Mueller to wrap-up his $10m year-long Russia collusion investigation after being told by his team they will NOT indict President Trump

    Quote:

    Rudy Giuliani has called on Special Counsel Robert Mueller to 'wrap up' his probe into Russian collusion in the 2016 Presidential election.

    The call comes after Trump's lawyer revealed he had been told by Mueller's team they would not be able to indict President Donald Trump due to a longstanding rule that a sitting President is immune from such treatment.

    'It's been a year, [Mueller] has gotten more than 1.4 million documents, he's interviewed 28 witnesses, and he has nothing,' Giuliani told Fox News.

    'It's about time to get the darn thing over with. It's about time to say, "Enough. We've tortured this President enough".'

    Mr. Giuliani - have you even tried a single lawsuit to a jury verdict in the last 15 yrs? Have you learned the facts of the case yet? They are not that complicated FYI. Do you need cliff notes on tape?
