Donald Trump actually tweeted about revelation that his former lawyer recorded their conversations.

So this tweet essentially has Trump admitting that it is his voice on this recording, so moving forward we know that it will be virtually impossible for his attorneys to dispute that it is his voice on the other recordings that we know were seized from Cohen’s office and home. 

As for the legality of this, New York is a “one-party consent” state, so as long as Cohen agrees to the recording, which obviously he did, it is perfectly legal.

As it turns out Washington DC is also a “one-party consent” state which would seem to indicate that this also covers conversations that Cohen had with Trump since Trump moved into the White House. 

In other words, Trump is likely screwed. 

Oh, and he is most certainly NOT our favorite president.

By the way, if this new revelation about the recordings does not cause Trump to panic this conversation that took place on The Beat yesterday most definitely will.

Could you even imagine how Trump would respond to news that his former attorney, who knows where ALL the bodies are buried,  was working with the lawyer that he hates most in all the world? 

I would pay money to be in the room to see that.

    T”rump’s favorite clergymen and staunchest defenders — blew off the president’s ongoing history of having affairs with Playboy playmates and adult film stars by throwing Republican icon Ronald Reagan under the bus as a “known womanizer.””effress lectured the host that the Christian community is less concerned with sin than with presidential policies.

    “This is not an unusual thing. We’ve been here before,” Jeffress told the Fox host. “Back in 1980, evangelicals chose to support a twice-married Hollywood actor who was a known womanizer in Hollywood. His name was Ronald Reagan. They chose to support him over Jimmy Carter, with a born-again Baptist Sunday school teacher who had been faithfully married to one woman.”

    “The reason we supported President Reagan was not because we supporting womanizing or divorce. We supported his policies,” he rationalized. “And that’s true here, Ed. We are choosing to support his policies. We’re not under any illusion that we were voting for an altar boy when we voted for President Trump. We knew about his past. And by the way, none of us has a perfect past. We voted for him because of his policies.””

    Michael Avenatti warned Donald Trump on Saturday that his continued loyalty to Russian president Vladimir Putin is going to come back to destroy his presidency.

    In an interview with MSNBC’s Joy Reid, the attorney for Stormy Daniels said he’s never seen Trump show loyalty to anybody in his life – except for Putin – and it will be his eventual downfall.

    “Thus far, the only person I’ve seen Donald Trump show any loyalty to in his life is Vladimir Putin,” Avenatti said.


    Rachel Maddow Tells America To Wake Up: Trump’s Surrender To Putin Is ‘Worst Case Scenario’

    …Maddow said, “The basic question which I think rung so loud for everybody in the country this week was: ‘Is our president subordinate to a foreign power? Does our president answer to a foreign government and a foreign leader?’”

    Trump’s behavior while standing next to Putin – and the unknown contents of his private meeting with the Russian leader – seems to have answered these questions.

    Al Sharpton Says His Meeting With Michael Cohen Sends ‘Signal’ to Trump

    …“I received a text from him saying he wanted to meet,” Sharpton said. “We met at a public restaurant and we spoke for over an hour. He was very troubled and felt in many ways cast wrongly.”

    He added: “And I feel he was saying that he had been abandoned by Mr. Trump.”

    Sharpton also suggested Cohen was ready to do what was right for him and his family and “he was adamant that he was opposed to things that Mr. Trump was doing.”

    Sharpton also suggested the meeting was more than a meeting. It was a signal to Trump.

    “Out of all the people he could reach out to, reaching out to me is sending a signal to Mr. Trump and prosecutor,” Sharpton told Ali Velshi.

    Rachel Maddow: It Seems Like the Trump Legal Team Leaked the Michael Cohen Tape

    Rachel Maddow suspects the news of this damning tape Michael Cohen has of Donald Trump may have been leaked from the Trump camp.

    Vanity Fair‘s Emily Jane Fox spoke with Maddow last night and reported that, per one source, the Cohen tape was considered privileged by the special master, but “the President’s attorneys waived the privilege.”

    And as Maddow herself said last night:

    “That means prosecutors would never have gotten it. So that means the only people that would’ve had access to this thing at Michael Cohen’s lawyers and President Trump’s lawyers. And Michael Cohen’s lawyers apparently didn’t leak this thing to the New York Times today. Which means, by process of elimination, that President Trump’s lawyers did.”

    “Don’t get your chain yanked on this one,” she said, arguing that Trump’s team realized the tape existed and decided to “get out ahead of this story” and shape the narrative.

    Maddow also pointed out another angle of possibility: “Trump’s lawyers have essentially taken this away as something that Michael Cohen might have otherwise been exclusively able to offer prosecutors.”

    Bill Browder and Vladimir Putin: A tangled tale of two nations, two centuries and a lot of history
    Behind this week’s Helsinki headlines lies a fascinating mystery with deep roots and many unanswered questions

    Who the hell is Bill Browder, and why does Putin want to get his paws on him so badly?

    • ANON July 21, 2018 at 3:20 pm

      “You’re the person who finally figured out how to handcuff him in certain ways that drive him crazy. You mentioned that he wants to kill you, and that’s been true for a long time. But a chill went down my spine on Monday when he brought it up because it made it real and immediate in a new way. Do you think the danger you face has increased? It certainly felt very present and visceral in that press conference.

      I think the danger has been very high for a long time. This is just us getting to see it firsthand how he feels. He has been fully after me in a lot of different ways. After Canada passed the Magnitsky Act last October, he got very upset about that, and there was a gathering of journalists and academics where he had an opportunity to answer questions, and at this gathering, a Canadian academic, very sympathetic to Putin, said, “How do you feel about the Magnitsky Act?” Putin said, “I don’t feel good about it.” Then he went into a five-minute diatribe attacking me and accusing me of all sorts of terrible crimes.” “What was most interesting was not the words but the body language. If you watched Putin, his forehead was getting all twisted and furrowed, and you could just tell—he was not playing poker. He was pissed. He was pissed off at me”

    Virginia Senate Candidate Laughed Off Stage When He Says Trump Is Standing Up To Russia

    Republican Senate candidate Corey Stewart was laughed off stage during his debate with Sen. Tim Kaine when he claimed that Trump is standing up to Russia.

    Watch the audience’s reaction as Corey Stewart claims that Trump is standing up to Russia:

    Stewart tried to paint Democratic Sen. Tim Kaine as weak on Russia by saying, “He was noticeably silent when the Russians shot down a Malaysian airliner when President Obama was in office. He was noticeably silent when the Russians invaded the Crimea when President Obama was in office. We have a president who is standing up to the Russians, and now, Sen. Kaine…”

    At that point, Tim Kaine laughed, and the audience laughed and booed.

    Corey Stewart is running in Virginia as a Trump mini-me. Stewart is courting the racists and white supremacists that fuel Trump’s base.

    What Fresh Hell? Our Manchurian President shows his true colors

    A Theory of Trump Kompromat
    Why the President is so nice to Putin, even when Putin might not want him to be.

    …Trump and many of his defenders have declared his businesses, including those in the former Soviet Union, to be off-limits to the Mueller investigation. They argue that the special counsel should focus only on the possibility of explicit acts of collusion between the Trump campaign and the Russian government. This neatly avoids the reality of sistema. As Pavlovsky wrote, “Under Putin, sistema has become a method for making deals among businesses, powerful players, and the people. Business has not taken over the state, nor vice versa; the two have merged in a union of total and seamless corruption.”

    Pence, Bolton, Kelly confronted Trump in Oval Office about Russia comments

    Facing condemnation from allies and foes alike on Capitol Hill, President Donald Trump was outnumbered even in the Oval Office. Top aides gathered to convince the president to issue a rare walk-back of the comments he’d made raising doubts about U.S. intelligence conclusions of Russian election interference as he stood alongside Vladimir Putin.

    Vice President Mike Pence, national security adviser John Bolton and chief of staff John Kelly stood united in the West Wing on Tuesday in their contention that the commander in chief had some cleanup to do. They brought with them words of alarm from Defense Secretary Jim Mattis and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, as well as from a host of congressional leaders and supporters of the president for whom Trump’s public praise of Putin proved to be a bridge too far.

    … By the time he arrived home, the parade of critical statements had become a stampede, leaving Trump the most isolated he’d been in the White House since last year’s controversy over white supremacist protesters in Charlottesville. Some in the president’s circle saw parallels in the response to that incident, when the president walked back his August comments critical of “both sides” for protests in the Virginia city, only to later revert to his initial position — that both white supremacists and their detractors shared blame for the violence.

    Trump waited 27 hours, sent five tweets and sat for two television interviews after his initial comments in Helsinki before claiming he’d used a confusing “double negative” and meant “would” instead of “wouldn’t” in a key sentence at his press conference about who was responsible for election meddling.

    Trump Is Selling Out America, and His Supporters Love It

    …Some on the far right see Putin as the restorer of Christendom; others simply see him as a champion of the white race. Donald Trump apparently sees Putin as the savior of, well, Donald Trump.

    But motives hardly matter in this new time; for white nationalists like former White House strategist Steve Bannon, Trump’s weakness for Putin serves Bannon’s dark vision for a reordering of the world, one that has little respect for democracy or civil rights. In the days preceding Trump’s visit to London, Bannon got himself a nice hotel suite in which he courted European far-right leaders, such as Brexiteer Nigel Farage and the National Front’s Louis Aliot—during which he stoked the chaos gripping the government of the United Kingdom over negotiations with the European Union over the terms of the U.K.’s exit from that economic alliance.

    As he did in Britain, Trump adhered to the Bannon playbook in Brussels—this time wreaking havoc at the NATO summit with demands that NATO allies double the percentage of each nation’s gross domestic product it pledges to devote to defense spending.

    And it was all capped off by that disastrous press conference in Helsinki, at which Trump demonstrated a fealty to the Russian president in far greater measure than any commitment he maintains to uphold the Constitution of the United States. As Trump entertained Putin’s proposal for turning over a former U.S. diplomat for questioning by the Kremlin, he demonstrated his respect for the Constitution to be not so much.

    Now we learn that Trump, who reflexively rejects the findings of his nation’s own intelligence and law enforcement communities that Russia meddled in the 2016 presidential election (despite occasional scripted walk-backs of that stated view), has invited Putin to the White House, just weeks ahead of the 2018 midterm congressional elections.

    …Whatever Putin has on Trump is endangering the republic. It’s a weakness that allows his manipulation by Putin, who has long wished to destroy both the EU and NATO.

    Trump reportedly fawned over Putin after their meeting and told aides the Russian leader was ‘strong, smart, and cunning’ and said he “relished” his interactions with the Russian strongman.

    …The Watkins case appears to reveal a new tactic in the Trump administration’s war on journalism. In addition to the president describing journalists as an “enemy of the people” and “the most dishonest people,” his Justice Department is using indictments of alleged leakers to peddle incidental information that is legally beside the point but smears the standing and credibility of reporters who publish stories that criticize or annoy the White House (especially stories about Russian interference in the U.S. election system).

    Putin Says He Misspoke Too, Withdrawing Claim Clinton Got Millions Stolen From Russia

    THE RUSSIAN PRESIDENT, Vladimir Putin, dashed the hopes of conspiracy theorists across America on Tuesday by withdrawing the startling claim he made the day before in Helsinki, that Hillary Clinton’s campaign had received $400 million in donations from investors accused of tax evasion in Russia.

    What he had intended to say, according to a Russian government spokesperson, was that business associates of the U.S.-born investor William Browder had donated $400,000 to Clinton’s campaign. (According to public campaign finance records, that figure also appears to be inflated.)

    “Trump called his former chief of staff, Reince Priebus, to discuss the trip and his news conference, and he also huddled with White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders in his cabin at the front of the plane to strategize.”

    Trump thought the summit was “a clear success” and was “flummoxed” by the negative reaction.

    “He waxed on about his impressions of Putin up close — strong, smart and cunning, in Trump’s assessment — and told associates that he viewed the Russian as a formidable adversary with whom he relishes interactions,””
