Yeah, this is going to piss Adolph Twitler off big time.

Michael Cohen, President Trump’s former attorney who until June served as the Republican Party’s deputy finance chair, today changed his party registration from Republican to Democrat, according to a knowledgeable source.

The move fits a pattern of Cohen publicly breaking from the man for whom he once said he’d take “a bullet.” Cohen went online around noon to the Albany-based New York State Board of Elections to make the change, according to the source.

Keep in mind that Cohen has been signaling his break with Trump for months now, after Trump didn’t lift a finger to defend him from charges of campaign finance violations over Cohen’s payments of hush money to keep two women quiet about their affairs with Trump.

In his guilty plea in August, Cohen implicated Trump by suggesting that the then-presidential candidate directed him to keep the affairs quiet.

His quote to George Stephanopoulos in July: “I put family and country first.”

The source with knowledge of the situation told Axios that Cohen’s party switch is “consistent with what he told Stephanopoulos on July 2, that constituted his declaration of independence two days before Independence Day, with the key message to Stephanopoulos that now I put my family and my country first.”

As a Democrat, I am not sure how I feel about somebody with Cohen’s past difficulty with ethics joining our side. 

However, as somebody who really despises Trump, I appreciate how much this is really going to get under his skin.

    Michael Cohen is a crook through and through and no registration is going to make him look any better.

    And I doubt Trump gives a flying, frankly.

    ” the Times calls a “common tax-minimizing maneuver” that allowed Kushner and his real estate firm, Kushner Companies, to mark losses on paper without actually losing any money.”
    “The Times spoke to 13 tax accountants and lawyers. Richard Harvey Jr., a tax official that worked in numerous White House administrations, reviewed the tax documents as well. Harvey said Kushner appears to have paid little or no federal income taxes for at least five years. Other experts interviewed by the Times say it’s likely he didn’t pay much ― or any ― in three other years.” ““It’s fantastic. You get tax deductions for things you don’t pay for.”

      Reports have indicated that the Saudi government sent a hit squad of assassins to murder Khashoggi inside their consulate in Turkey and that President Donald Trump may have learned about the plot within 5 minutes. It has also been reported they made a proof of death tape. “The Saudis realized very early on all they had to do was just flatter and court him — again, this a common theme of people that Trump decides to play nice with,” “And in return, what they’ve gotten is a relationship between two crown princes … Mohammed bin Salman on the one side and Jared Kushner on the other.” the Saudis insisted they would only speak with Jared Kushner, they would not talk to Pompeo, they would not talk to Nikki Haley.”
      “The fact that Jared Kushner is leading this shows that the Trump administration is far more concerned about maintaining it’s personal relationship with Saudi Arabia than any security interest in the United States,” “

    “Rep. Richard Neal of Massachusetts will become chairman of the powerful House Ways and Means Committee, and as a result will be in a position to demand to see a copy of all of President Donald Trump’s tax returns. -he knows he can look forward to what he called “a long drawn-out battle” to get access to the documents which the whole world is waiting to see.
    The president called it both “boring” and a “hit piece.”

    Rep. Neal said it is not yet clear what strategy Democrats might use to try to obtain the Trump tax records. “Anticipate a long court case in the end,”

    Gore>“Climate change could become an existential threat to civilization.”

    Trump expressed skepticism about the report’s authors when asked about its findings this week.

    “It was given to me and I want to look at who drew it, which group drew it,” Trump told reporters on Tuesday.
    “Because I can give you reports that are fabulous and I can give you reports that aren’t so good.”
    Gore said that Trump’s approach to climate change is “literally insane” and that his reaction to the report is an “outlier.”
    “It’s making the U.S. coming off like a rogue nation, He then explained it this way: “The large carbon polluters are Trump’s buddies,”
