Tonight’s question, greetings, and banter here. (More)
Today ABC’s George Stephanopoulos reported that long-time ‘fixer’ Michael Cohen has split with his lawyers and will soon cooperate with special counsel Robert Mueller and offer evidence against the God-King and other campaign insiders. In terms of what Cohen could reveal, Just Security’s Ryan Goodman reports that Cohen played a central role in the God-King’s negotiations to build a Moscow Trump Tower, including contacts with Russians during the 2016 campaign, and arranged money transfers for a Russia-orchestrated ‘peace’ deal with Ukraine. And William Saletan reports that the summit with North Korean dictator Kim Jung Un is a con-job in which U.S. media and voters are the marks, including a White House-produced propaganda film that former National Security Council spokesperson Ned Price said “reeks of amateurism and comes off as an attempt to check the box on a harebrained idea that presumably originated in the Oval Office.” If Cohen has the kind of evidence that Goodman describes, might reporters – and some of the God-King’s voters – finally admit they’ve been had?
