Michael Cohen Critical New Interview, Strong Signal He Is Flipping

We are weary because we’ve heard that Cohen has “flipped” before.

Yet, today, he gave a surprisingly intense interview with Good Morning America, in which Donald Trump’s longtime fixer who once said he’d take a bullet for Trump, said that he puts “family and country” first — which is a slight alteration in priorities, given that bullets don’t care about families or countries.

Of course, that did it, the internet hit Warp 9 speculating that Trump’s personal lawyer may have already flipped on the president.

One real development did occur, as noted by Rawstory:

National security lawyer Bradley P. Moss, meanwhile, noted the most important aspects of the Cohen interview, including that he will no longer be sharing documents with the president’s legal team.

“Tick tock,” the lawyer wrote.

THAT will drive Trump and his lawyer’s crazy, because nothing drives Trump crazy like not knowing what information lays out there awaiting to trip him up. The move seems calculated to either get Trump to pay his legal fees or get a fast-tracked pardon, neither of which seems likely. The country likes Cohen even less than it likes Trump, and if Trump were to grant Cohen immunity, or even start paying legal fees, even the president’s advocates will have a hard time defending such an action.

A lot of words can be said about the new interview, but all would be speculation. So, I’ll let the great Rob Reiner take us out:

SCOTUS nominee Brett Kavanaugh said he would ‘put the nail’ in independent counsel ruling

In a 2016 video, Judge Kavanaugh argued that he would overturn Morrison v. Olson, a Supreme Court ruling that underpins the appointment of independent counsels. The ruling largely fell out of favor after Ken Starr’s turn in the Clinton era. As FiveThirtyEight’s Nate Silver points out, however, Kavanaugh volunteered the example by himself, revealing something about his views on Supreme Court precedent.

Sarah Sanders: We’re working on “bold reforms” to stop Russian election interference

White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said the Trump administration is working on “bold reforms” to ensure Russian interference in US elections never happens again.

Sanders was asked if Trump sees Russian meddling in the 2016 election as “an attack on democracy.”

The President has faced continued furor over his remarks about election meddling made alongside Russian President Vladimir Putin on Monday in Helsinki.

Here’s what Sanders said today:

The President thinks that we have to focus on securing our election integrity and our election systems, which is why he has spent so much time with his administration making sure that this doesn’t happen again. Let’s not forget this didn’t happen under President Trump’s watch. This happened under the Obama administration. We’re taking steps, we’re making bold reforms to try to fix this and make sure it never happens again.

Here’s what the White House says Trump and Putin talked about in their private meeting

White House press secretary Sarah Sanders listed a number of topics that were included in President Trump’s private one-on-one meeting with his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin.

Sanders listed Syrian humanitarian aid, Israeli security, North Korea, denuclearization, Ukraine and the occupation of Crimea, reducing Russian and US nuclear arsenals, and “your favorite topic” Russian interference in elections.

Sanders said the meeting reflected the “beginning of the dialogue with Russia and our administration and theirs and we’re going to continue working through those things.”

Sanders also said Putin’s proposal of having Russian prosecutors question US officials, including former US ambassador to Russia Mike McFaul, arose in Trump’s meeting, but she said no agreements were reached.

“He said it was an interesting idea. He didn’t commit to anything,” Sanders said. “We’ve committed to nothing.”
