Michael Cohen Explains 'Trump Fatigue'

"Stephanie Winston wolkoff tweeted, Donald wasn't giving his shares of true social to Melania, but wanted others to fork over theirs to get Melania in on the grift. You just said, why would we or should we expect anything else a family grips together ultimately throws each other under the bus? Michael, isn't the danger we're just numb to the amount of crime that he continues to commit and get away with, thus far. So I have a name for it. And it's called Trump fatigue. We are all just tired. We're tired of every time that you turn the television on. First thing in the morning, I get up at 4 o'clock four 30 in the morning. I turn on the television, I'm watching, and then what do I see? Another action by Donald or his group that is illegal, unethical. By the yelps, if any of your listeners, if you Stephanie, anybody. Other than Donald. Was involved in this? You would be behind bars already and God knows how long the sentence would be, especially if you had my judge, judge William H, only the third. If you had him, you could be in there for life.

"What is your take on all of this? Is just as karma, whatever you want to call it finally coming. Karma boomerang? Yeah. Yeah. Is it coming for Trump? Okay, so I do believe that indictments will be coming. I believe that indictments will be coming thank God to tish James our attorney general and I hope if she doesn't end up staying as attorney general, you know what they always say AG stands for. What? Governor. I would love to see tish James. Aspiring government. Oh, there you go. Sorry, you cut out there. Aspiring governor, got it. Wait, wait, wait, hold on. Wait, that one's going over your head. No, you cut out. Wait, it's coming back. I got it. Okay. All right. I would hope that she would consider becoming governor down the road. And I would support her with everything that I have. And I would get people to support her because what she did, nobody else wanted to do. Alvin bridge certainly didn't want to do it. Okay, we at the end of this month, we have the DA's case against the Trump organization. I want to remind you started by our previous district attorney Cyrus Vance. So at least Alvin Briggs didn't muck that one up and then get rid of get rid of that case. I also believe that that will cause some significant legal challenges to Trump personally, not just the Trump organization. But what tish James did by being first one out there, she now has all of the documents, all of the proof she has forwarded the case to the southern district of New York for tax evasion, as well as to the IRS. So I do believe indictments will be coming. I believe that they will come before the end of the year. What bothers me again is this whole slow walk by our Justice Department. Oh, we can't do it now. It's only three weeks before the midterm elections. Ask me if I care. Yeah. Yeah. By the way, we want to thank you for saying mom care if we indict him on the day of the midterm elections. It's not guilty. He's not on the ballot. Yeah, exactly.

J.D. Vance Is a Fraud and a Liar Says Joel Stein

"Between Trump and COVID and just the fact that we could get to one set of the vaccines work, masking works, Joe Biden won the election. There's just, are we ever going to get to anything that resembles one set of facts again? I don't know, ever. It's not 90 times soon. Yeah. That's for sure. Yeah. And yeah, these candidates can be very even candidates who take JD Vance. JD Vance is not Herschel Walker. JD Vance is a smart person with a lot of world experience. But he is chosen to pretend. He's a fraud. Yeah. Right. I feel bad for rehearsal walker in some ways, obviously he's chosen to run for a Senate. He should be aware at least at this point that he's not qualified. But JD Vance is just a fraud and a liar and it is very upsetting. Yeah. And we haven't even gotten to the puppy torturer yet.

Joel Stein: Herschel Walker Is Too 'Average' to Be a Senator

"Okay, so Joel, do you read the regular news? Do you understand how ridiculous the candidates are? And you know, that was Herschel Walker replayed. Your thoughts on Herschel Walker. Well, you know, the last book, the one I mentioned you in. It was called in defense of elitism. Yes. Why I'm better than you and you're better than someone who didn't buy this book. Right. So when I see people like Herschel Walker, and by the way, in some way, I feel bad for Herschel Walker. Herschel Walker should not be in a position where he's running to be U.S. senator. Right. He shouldn't be in a position where he can eat pudding without a rubber spoon. No, he should be playing football, talking about people playing football. Right. Maybe selling reverse mortgages during football used to play football. Right, yeah. Yeah, but he shouldn't. And this idea that I think there's an idea in people's brains that an average person should be represented in the Senate. Not understanding that jobs have become much more complex now. Right. And people have become less educated now. So he's just not in a position to handle anything in the Senate deals with. Yeah, well, also he doesn't know it though. That's the part that upsets me.

And when you say really good week, think about the guests we've had this week. I imported a guest from nearly three houses away. You did. Yes. Famous Time Magazine writer Joel Stein, hilarious Joel Stein. Has a new podcast. No one hardly anyone has a podcast. So this is exciting. He's like the 20th one just on my street. Yes, okay. And he's on our podcast, happy hour to talk about his new podcast. Right. It's like a Russian nesting dolls of podcasts. It's very incestuous. A lot of body fluids. But he's hilarious, and I'm not saying that just because he's my neighbor. I mean, it does cause some dissension with Paul poundstone who asked if you have to live on my street to get your podcast mentioned. So listen to her fucking podcast too. It's called nobody listens to Paula. Yeah, nobody listens to Paul pounce stone. That's the name of it. All right, but listen, Joel Stein is hilarious, as is his new podcast. And speaking of what we call him our potty mouth John dean, Michael Cohen, joined us again. So sue. Me. And he dropped the S bomb. So you get to hear from this version? Yeah, and right after we talked to him, he said, can I swear on this show and what did we say? No. No. No, you can not. And what did he do? He dropped a fucking S bomb. Right on this show. Why did I say espa and fuck? You could say he said shit. Did he say, was it shit? Bullshit shit, bullshit. Oh, yeah. Well, that's because Donald Trump is a lot of bullshit. It was in a very aggressive bullshit too. Yeah, he swore the first time he was on the show as well. John dean. And Travis, you're cursing as much as you did on bob ses podcast.

Allison Gill's Concern Over Trump Blackmailing America

"One of the things that the DoJ keeps harping on and the ODNI keeps harping on is that, you know, we have to find out where we still haven't recovered all the documents. There were 90 misses empty folders. And we have to continue this risk assessment. And it's linked to the criminal investigation because we have to know where this information went if it was compromised. The fact that it was just down in Mar-a-Lago in a basement means it is compromised. So it's going to, I think we're going to, you're right, we're going to find out a lot of really, really scary stuff. And probably stuff that we won't find out about because it's so top secret. Well, would you heard what Michael Cohen said that he has this stuff he stole to he will blackmail the United States government to get out of going to prison, that he will use he will, I will release these whatever it is nuclear, whatever information. I mean, that's terrifying. Yeah, and his lawyers were up there talking to Wyndham. Last Thursday at Maine justice, purportedly about executive privilege assertions over folks like Patsy baloney and pat philbin and Eric hirschman, who's a riot, by the way. I love him. More bombs per square inch than any lawyer I've seen on TV thus far. Fantastic. So it seems he seems a little DOM. He seems a little dummy. Give me the best effin advice lover up and give you. Criminal defense lawyer. How you doing? He's having some serious parties. So yeah, we just have to very carefully watch that. But you know, I'm wondering if and when he's going to make he's already made had somebody make a phone call to Merrick Garland saying, it's a nice country you got here. It's a shame if something happened to it. You know, so I'm wondering when the outreach will be if he takes these nuclear documents and said, boy, I have some interesting information on the nuclear weapon locations for England. Be a real shame if Putin found out about, you know, like when does it come?

"At the last, the very last 6 years ago, which is LA. Theater, Beverly Hills. Everybody. Okay. We have Ellen stahl and Alison Gil coming up. What a great day, because everything feels like it's, you know, connected this morning. It does feel connected. Yeah, John Cooper tweets, documents seized by the FBI at Mar-a-Lago may also incriminate Donald Trump in the New York fraud case as AG James indicates Trump his documents at Mar-a-Lago. I saw Michael Cohen said that. As well. So it's fantastic. Wouldn't it be great if it was Alex Jones cell phone that blows up all of it? That's going to blow up all of it. But it's going to tie some things together, I bet. Fantastic. We will talk to Ellie and to Allison about all of that. Barbara tweets Putin's vanity is costing lives. Trump's vanity is costing democracy being unable to accept defeat is crushing. That is really what's going on around the world, but I got to say, yay, democracy. Go democracy, right? Iran, but what is the thing that they Google the most besides leaving Russia, how to break your own arm at home so that you don't have to go fight and Putin's stupid, not even war. Terrorist attacks. That carry a gun. Yeah. Right? And protests there, I just, I'm feeling good. I'm feeling blue tsunami. Carolyn orr says they're trying to sell fascism to America by inviting supporters to take part in the creation of a new national fiction. This isn't just politicians lying to citizens. It's an entire movement focused on shattering our shared reality and replacing it with their ideology. Guess what, I've read on the plane, just to scare the out of myself. Oh, Malcolm. Yes. Yes, that is my plane book. Did you, isn't it terrifying? It does not have a happy ending. No. Spoiler alert. Not a lot of beach read. Unless the beach gets blown up at the end. In a giant mushroom cloud. I wonder? No, it's just terrifying. I mean, not a huge, we have to remember there's more of us. But a subset of America is completely crazy. Do you read about all the different groups? And it's been going forever. The 80s, Timothy McVeigh, but it's just Donald Trump absolutely exacerbated. And now, because it's only his left, he's really leaning into this QAnon stuff. And that is bad crazy stuff. There's a new story that just came out this morning in The Washington Post about a sect within QAnon that is like the crazy. Oh, really? The regular kuhnen's are like, those people are nuts, holy cow. It's like that Britney Spears song. Do you think you know crazy? I got you crazy. That's what this is. Yeah. It's just, but it's all mostly white supremacy. Anti government starting with Tim McVeigh stuff, but the point is almost like they only believe right wing government is legitimate. They aren't actually anti government because when Trump was in, they were all about, you know, that's what they think is going to happen. That's what Q is. They think he's going to execute all of the Democrats. His government will execute anyone they don't agree with. All the Democrats and Tom Hanks and Oprah. Yeah. Yeah. Sorry. Sorry Forrest Gump. Coming with us. Anyway, but that's isn't that that's exactly what it is, and that goes all the way through the big lie. They don't believe it's legitimate unless it's a right-wing government that they think aligns with their white supremacist ideas and that will punish their enemies. This is what everything Donald Trump's about. Well, that's what scared me about those polls remember the polls early this year where it said that the majority of Americans feel like that the threat to democracies the number one threat? But that's because they think where the threat. Yes, they were the threat to democracy. They have different, but that's the people who think we're actually communists or socialists or whatever. It's craziness. There is nobody in America now in the Democratic Party that is espousing communism. No. Or socialism for that. Socialism and communism aren't the same thing, but they all seem to recognize that. Exactly. Exactly. Randy singer says weird how democracy could die because once upon a time Mark Zuckerberg couldn't get a girlfriend and Donald Trump was mocked by a black president. That's in Malcolm's book about how and we all know that. Barack Obama being elected was the accelerant. It was the match on the already racist underbelly or whatever you want to call it in America, but man, it really is terrifying. You got to read Malcolm's book, not for fun. But oh, my God. I mean, I read it through the kidnapping of governor Whitmer. I mean, it is really crazy that they believe. They were going to have a trial on TV and executor on TV. Oh my God. Speaking of fantastic American patriotic woman, guess who I ran into in the airport. At O'Hare. Who? Jennifer Granholm. Secretary Granholm. I love her. I know. Okay, here's what happened. So I'm like, wow, that looks like Jennifer Granholm. And then it was like a police escort with her. I'm like, oh, I bet you that is Jennifer Granholm. And so they're large men, of course. Yeah. And I said to one of them, I'm like, I know her. You know, they give you the stank eye. I'm sure you do. And then just turn around and I was like, secretary. She was like, Stephanie, and we hugged and I said to the guy we see who told you. Because I said we had TV show together on. Yeah. That was a bigger carry on. You could have just stuffed her in that cake and heard the Chicago theater. You noticed her Gavin Newsom everyone on current TV went on to much bigger and better things except for us who, you know, still here in our basement. But still, Jennifer Granholm knew who we were, so. You know what? We have in common with them. We all still have jobs. Yes, we all still have jobs. That's right. But our grandma didn't have a job for a while there because her show ended. Thank God. And save her something to do. Right. Former governor of Michigan, I was thinking of her because of the governor Whitmer plot, I was just reading about and oh my God, now I'm blanking. She's secretary of energy. Energy, thank you. But there she is. Checking stuff out at O'Hare. I said you're doing great. So you're doing great, so good to see you. Anytime she shows up. And also, she's, I gotta say.

"Listen to everything you love on the iHeartRadio app for free. All of Trump's argument is when they pulled me over, they had no right to search the trunk just because they thought they heard thumping. Now they have no right to listen to the person who was thumping in the trunk. And I never saw that person in the first place. Like, that's it. Yeah. It's terrible. Yeah, you made a lot of great points on the twitters, 33 boxes items, several docs found inside Trump's desk after the subpoena. I'm starting to realize why a lot of the Trump defenders are so quiet all of a sudden. Right. You said twice as many secret talks were found after Trump's team asserted there were no more classified materials. They never thought anyone would check. Isn't that amazing? So for those of you that don't speak Trump, no crimes means double crimes. None means double. Anything he says there's none of there's double that. Yes. Yeah. Yeah. And you said the government made the case that waiting two weeks to file an emergency injunction, hardly shows that you think it's an emergency. They were assaulted in the wound by reminding the court and Trump that Michael Cohen filed his immediately. We just had Michael Cohen on. The Cohen jab was fantastic. Yes. He would sustain literally Cohen found that the same day they told him to go pound sand, and then he filed an injunction within 24 hours. Trump was like two weeks pass. And he like, what? One of his crap lawyers dives for the phone. I've got a great idea. Like, come on. Who are they? And then you said Trump's life. I love it. You said Trump's lie about executive privilege gets bounced because mister stable genius waited too long. The concoct that lies the defense and went months without bringing it up. And then as I was saying in the slightest, there's nothing. Now the magical declassification wand. There's nothing about that anywhere, right? No. And also in the special master filing, he admits that you would need a special clearance to see this stuff, which means it's still classified. Right, exactly. And they handled it. You know, I mentioned it as well that they, when they first turned over what they said was the last of the stuff that they had found in the two weeks from the service of the subpoena to when they came back, they asked for a delay. Why the delay also, honestly, and all of this, it's the same thing. Just take it, bring back the stuff that I'm allowed to have cycle it through. I want to keep this stuff. Those are my notes. I want them in my library, whatever that is. Let them have it. I don't understand any of I need these things. They're never going to give them back to me. Unless, of course, you think you're going to jail. I suppose you need to ransom them like OJ's sports gear for bail money. I don't know. That's going to be I was just saying yesterday, this is like watching the slow speed chase in the Bronco for those of us in LA, right? Forever.

This is not how America is supposed to work. I mean, Michael, you're obviously a lawyer.

"Michael, ironically, you can apparently you have much better lawyers than Donald Trump does. Who has a parking garage lawyer and also one that worked for QVC. Yes. I have to ask you, how does he still get any lawyers at all? Does he not notice that people not notice that some of his lawyers went to prison somewhere on their way to prison some have been disbarred? What would he doesn't pay you? Right. What possesses people to work as a lawyer for Donald Trump? Yeah, I don't know. You know, I've often called myself stupid for joining into that group. Remember, though, when I joined into that group, Eddie, television showed the apprentice. He had the Miss Universe pageant was real estate. So while we screwed over an enormous amount of contractors, that's not, you know, when I get a lot of ribbing from people on social media, claiming, oh, well, you were one of his people. And so what we did has nothing to do with them, right? It's wrong. I acknowledge that I grant that. And I apologize. Your podcast is mea culpa, the name of your body. Yes. Yes, which is also which is also my initials. But one of the things, one of the things that I tried to explain is what, like the Alina harbors of the world doing what the Rudy collude Giuliani's, what the Bill Barr of the world. What they're doing doesn't just impact the contractor that you have a dispute with or somebody that you owe money because you took out a ballroom at their Holiday Inn. This impacts not just America, but the world and it's a big difference in why these people are so stupid and they're falling, but talk about stupidity. I just saw a poll, right? And you're right, by the way, he doesn't, he is screwed over and stiffed every single major law firm in this country, which is why he can't get anybody decent to represent them. Not to mention, you representing him on what on something you know that he's guilty of.

"We are so excited to say good morning, Michael Cohen. Oh my God. Good morning, Stephanie. How are you? I'm okay. We've been trying to get this booking forever. Thank you for telling the truth. Thank you for, you know, I think it was general hurtling that said of your new book. How is it that Michael Cohen is the only one that went to prison? In all of this lawbreaking, right? In the Trump administration. So talk to us with the bar memo coming out. Just talking to us about, first of all, how you're feeling with everything that's happening right now? Not happy. I'm not just, I'm not disappointed that they are finally being held to account. What I'm disappointed in is the length of time that it's taking. Every single day that Donald Trump and his minion are out there, continuing to spew lie after lie after lie after lie. I would democracy is more and more in peril. You know, one of the things that I talk about in revenge is how Donald Trump weaponized the Justice Department. And the big baby, the grifter in chief. I like to call him the greasy grifter. What he's doing right now is he's taking he's taking advantage of the chaos that he sowed in the Department of Justice and believe me. As I talk about in revenge, I don't have a lot of love for the Department of Justice. In fact, one of the things that I talk about is how they hide information. Now, we as American citizens, we file something called the foia request, the freedom of information. And the first one that I followed after the unconstitutional remand of me back to prison, which I now have that lawsuit against the government, Bill Barr, DoJ, Donald Trump, et cetera one of the things that they did is they replied that we have no documents that are relevant to your foia request.

"We are so excited to say good morning, Michael Cohen. Oh my God. Good morning, Stephanie. How are you? I'm okay. We've been trying to get this booking forever. Thank you for telling the truth. Thank you for, you know, I think it was general hurtling that said of your new book. How is it that Michael Cohen is the only one that went to prison? In all of this lawbreaking, right? In the Trump administration. So talk to us with the bar memo coming out. Just talking to us about, first of all, how you're feeling with everything that's happening right now? Not happy. I'm not just, I'm not disappointed that they are finally being held to account. What I'm disappointed in is the length of time that it's taking. Every single day that Donald Trump and his minion are out there, continuing to spew lie after lie after lie after lie. I would democracy is more and more in peril. You know, one of the things that I talk about in revenge is how Donald Trump weaponized the Justice Department. And the big baby, the grifter in chief. I like to call him the greasy grifter. What he's doing right now is he's taking he's taking advantage of the chaos that he sowed in the Department of Justice and believe me. As I talk about in revenge, I don't have a lot of love for the Department of Justice. In fact, one of the things that I talk about is how they hide information. Now, we as American citizens, we file something called the foia request, the freedom of information. And the first one that I followed after the unconstitutional remand of me back to prison, which I now have that lawsuit against the government, Bill Barr, DoJ, Donald Trump, et cetera one of the things that they did is they replied that we have no documents that are relevant to your foia request. So I bring in this lawyer named Mark Zayn, who is an expert in this. Everybody in the whole world uses him. Newspapers, television, et cetera and aftermarkets involved in files the action.

Hi Nixon, That's Not How It Works

"Trump said a letter on May 29th and May 1st that said, I'm still looking through the stuff, but if I haven't responded to you in a timely fashion, just assume I'm exerting privilege over everything and all these boxes. And they wrote him a letter back going hi Nixon. That's not how it works. You don't get to retroactively when you're no longer president, declare privilege on documents you have no right to that may affect our trade relations, our security relations, our national security, that the current president needs to make full decisions. Well, that's why his, what was the statement of the officer of the 45th president about the special master. I'm requesting a that's why that was so it's a legal term, but just cuckoo banana bread. It was first of all, it's like what, two weeks late, and secondly, first of all, he's just trying to slow down or stop the investigation. Every request somewhat like a special master to look, but anyway, he literally said, if I don't respond to your letter, assume that I have asserted and I quote a protective assertion of executive privilege made by counsel for the former president. That's not a thing.

This is what I was mentioning earlier how that Michael Cohen says Trump may have stolen our top secret Doctor Who is to extort America by using them as a get out of jail free card. Trump's mindset may have been a few incarcerated me these documents are going to be released where random North Korea, Russia, or China. I mean, yes, he isn't and always has been an ongoing threat to American. Watch for the maga response to the fact that when we finally see what some of these documents are, we find out that a lot of them were dummies given to him by the intelligence community because they knew he was a threat. So they started feeding him false information like he was some sort of like a double agent they caught in World War II. They're like, we're on to him, but don't let him know we're onto him. Start handing him kids drawings that look like where the tanks are poised before D-Day. You know, they do that kind of stuff. I wouldn't be surprised if we read it all and we're like, nobody really thought this. He thought this was real. Fingers crossed.

No Trump, You Can't Get Your Stolen Documents Back

"In the weeks after the FBI Mar-a-Lago raid Trump repeatedly made a simple sounding but extraordinary ask. He wanted his lawyers to quote get my documents back. That was in that document. Pastiche of notions, it was not a legal document that he judges. Thank you. And then he ended with his usual thank you. I would like those back, please. Thank you. Okay, I don't think it gets these not still president, and they're not his documents, and he's going to go to prison for stealing them. No, you don't get them. It's just like a bankrupt. I would like the money back. Then I still thank you. The ex-president has been demanding that his team find a way to recover all of the official documents that Trump has long referred to as mine, including the highly sensitive and top secret ones. I don't think this means what he thinks it means. Top secret. Okay. Several longtime Trump advisers say they want absolutely nothing to do with the now infamous box of documents fearing any knowledge of them would invite an unwanted knock on the door from the feds. I wonder if Michael Cohen will have any thoughts on that later. On how he still gets lawyers. They haven't noticed that his first lawyers either went to prison or going to prison or disbarred. I mean, what money talks? Yeah. Look, he doesn't pay them either. What do you mean, money talks? That's what I can't understand. At this point, we can tell that Trump was looking at these things because they probably got ketchup on them. But and Cheeto dust, yeah. Look, I believe it was a filing from the national archives that said, just to be clear, the documents belong to the office of president. Right. Not former presidents. Right. And so, you know, and there's legal precedent to back that up from the Supreme Court oddly enough in a mixing case. They're running out of lawyers to even comment on this stuff. It's so ridiculous. One criminal defense attorney said of this motion wanting his stuff back. He said, the motion he already filed is so absolutely terrible. It's hard to contemplate him filing something even more aggressive that is even more unlikely to succeed.

"Up the dangerous fokker out. In the community that you work toward superseding indictments to build your your case and include all of the crime. So yeah i. I like your theory but i still think donald trump should have been arrested already. Yeah and what was the point of getting don mcgann's second testimony. If not to make a criminal referral an arrest arrest donald trump. I don't get. I feel that i feel like everyone. Sorta like all right. We did it. We got it. We're done and that bugs me your new too. But until i get into the announcement from the department of justice saying they aren't pursuing those charges. I'm still going to give them the benefit of the doubt. But you're right. Timing is a factor and you know the other thing. Is this still irks me. We had michael cohen. As a co-conspirator plead guilty to campaign finance violations at the direction of and for the benefit of donald trump. Can somebody explain to me why. Donald trump has not been charged with those crimes. That's a ready made. Ace now i this. I can actually make more when telling counteract mint and it's it's a little bit down in the legal weeds but people will say well. Michael cohen may have played pleaded guilty to something that was a little bit an overstatement. Remember how we couldn't convict john edwards of campaign finance violations. Because i will agree that proving that it's a thing of value this kind of campaign information that you could either exploit or berry Is that a thing of value. Statutory people may say well. Michael cohen may have pleaded guilty to more than he really could have been convicted of at trial in his zeal to provide information against donald trump. So i get that. But i would still have given it a go. Because that's something when you commit crimes to seal an election and then you hold up the presidential shield that you stole as protection against being charged for those crimes you gotta you gotta give that one a try and the judge told the prosecutors in that case you either need to close this case or or charged someone else and they. They chose to opt to close that case. I think that was under berman. I could be wrong but that doesn't preclude prosecutors from reopening things that hadn't been charged right. Is that correct. Yeah so anytime of prosecutorial decision is made that we don't have enough evidence to charge a case or we won't we don't charge a case for some reason. That decision can always be revisited. Like because don't charge a sitting president you don't indict a perfect example perfect example. He's not sitting you have to worry about statute of limitations too though because most crimes carrying a five year statute of limitations. So if you don't act in five years you may lose your opportunity to charge somebody. But you can always file indictment under seal. Sit on it. But i don't know that they did that in this particular case but yeah we do have we do have a statute of limitations. Although i will say for the obstruction stuff i would consider the dangled pardons and the execution of the pardons right before he left office as when that sort of statute of limitations start to toll right so it would. The obstruction of justice took took place in two thousand seventeen which means it expire in two thousand twenty two. But if you count the pardons which were the completion the cherry on top of the obstruction stuff. That extends it to to christmas of twenty twenty-five if conspiratorial acts are continuing than the statute of limitations doesn't even spark running right. So i mean and when we look back to the campaign finance crimes remember. Yeah they were committed in two thousand sixteen but remember. Donald trump was still writing. Michael cohen reimbursement checks from the oval office. So that extends the statute of limitations because it was an ongoing conspiracy at that point. We'll we'll keep on top of all of this and sometimes no news is good news if they're holding it close to their chest. I appreciate your time today. Everybody please check out justice matters.

Tweeting about jared kushner folks and this is the same jared kushner who as we know is the son-in-law to donald trump his net worth is about eight hundred million dollars he just recently purchased this twenty four million dollar fixer upper in miami beach. And this is the same. Jared kushner that according to michael benders new book called. Frankly jarod told. Rnc chair ronna mcdaniel. He didn't give enough about the republican party. I don't give an f about the republican party. He said and he reportedly said this in the lobby of the trump international hotel in washington. Dc while having a tense exchange with rnc chair ronna mcdaniel in after. He said that she blacked out. Good to know good to know. I'll be ranked for chair a second term. And i'll make sure you don't come anywhere near any of this. So michael cohen. Here's his tweet that he's tweeted out earlier. Today about jared kushner and it goes like this interesting. How jared kushner's name appears to be absent from all the controversy. Edite -ment arrest. Is he next to fall or cooperating witness knowing what a sneaky is. I bet the ladder now. What makes his theory. Interesting is the fact that like i mentioned. He's got a lot to lose the kushner's do and ivanko and the indictment against weisselberg that was just issued it twice listed in unnamed co-conspirator which has led to speculation like this that it may be jared kushner. And he's he's just in a position to cooperate. Here folks have listen to this. This is something that michael cohen also said back in june. Here's a video. That i want you to listen to the problem with everybody. In the trump organization is that they all lie and they will continue as i did include with congress. We all lied. In order to protect donald. The problem though is that there were documents. That show opposites that. I wasn't the only one that line in the creation that document it was ivanka. And jared the lawyers and secular and cobb. And you name it. I the law. All of them were involved in the established in the setting up of that Of that information to con- jeez okay folks. I mean if jared did have a hand in this. I in speculation. I get that if this is true. I mean obviously lying to congress would be leverage to make jared kushner cooperate today with the prosecutors. I mean that's that's a hell of a serious claim. I mean lying to congress is not something that is taken lightly and extremely problem. Problematic for jared kushner if if this is true and with all of this i just can't help but think that with all of this is coming out you know if if he is cooperating with prosecutors All of this information that's coming out. I mean can you really imagine donald trump running for office in two thousand twenty four with all of this coming out in continuing to come out. I mean it It could be if he does continue to run. And the republicans are not smart enough to push him off the dock at that stage and not get him on the the twenty twenty four presidential boat. I mean it could be a washout for them now. The first test of that obviously is going to be in twenty twenty two when we've got the midterm elections. So let's see where this ends up. I made that turns out to be a wash for republicans in very well could be. I mean that does not bode well for donald trump running in twenty twenty four till then folks. Thanks for tuning in..

Prosecutor in Trump Criminal Probe Convenes Grand Jury to Hear Evidence, Weigh Potential Charges

"And I'm Rachel Martin. Good morning, Manhattan's district attorney has convened a grand jury to consider evidence in a criminal investigation. I could indict former President Donald Trump or other members of the Trump Organization. The grand jury will sit for six months, three days a week, looking into whether Trump lied about assets to defraud insurance companies and banks. News was first reported by The Washington Post and has not yet been confirmed by the prosecutor's office. William Merritt from member station W. And my see in New York is here to talk about it with us, Hialeah. Good morning. What does convening a grand jury tell us about where the D A. Cyrus Vance is with this case. Well, let's just say it is such an extraordinary situation. Usually the grand jury process plays out completely in secret. You never know what's happening. But as we have seen, nothing ever unfolds in the expected way, when it comes to Donald Trump and the courts, so this entire probe is played out. In partial public view, and that's in large part because Donald Trump tried to block it every step of the way, forcing prosecutors to go to court to get the records they were seeking. This probe went to the Supreme Court twice and prevailed both times. And along the way, there have been leaks and just very intense media coverage. So this special grand jury will be a panel of men and women, ordinary citizens being presented with evidence of potential wrongdoing at the Trump Organization and potentially related to Donald Trump. Cording to the Washington Post is you say the grand jury will be impaneled for six months, meaning three days a week. Now it's district Attorney Cy Vance may ask the special grand jury for an indictment. Or he may just use it to gather evidence and corral witnesses. But either way, it's a very meaningful step forward for that investigation. We know that advances office one access to former President Trump's tax records. Based on that. What? What do we know about the possible crimes that looking at here? The ones that he has named in his court filings are scheme to defraud falsification of business records, insurance fraud and criminal tax fraud on he said that it could go further than that what we know about the business practices. Underlying those possible crimes really begins with the hush money scheme to silence to women who claimed they had affairs with Trump around the 2016 campaign. You'll recall that former Trump personal attorney Michael Cohen went to jail for his role in that scheme, but no one else was ever charged. From there. Vance reached further back in Trump business history following a pattern described by Michael Cohen of either understating or overstating either the value or revenues of the trump business to get bigger loans if he was talking to banks. Or small tax bills If he was talking to the government now, to be clear, both Trump the man and Trump the business are investing under investigation. This probe could result in charges against Trump or people close to him or the business

"Washington post first to report that the manhattan district attorney as convened a grand jury. That is quote expected to decide whether to indict trump executives at his company or the business itself should prosecutors present the panel with criminal charges the report continues to say the move indicates that manhattan district attorney cyrus vance investigation of the former president and his business has reached an advanced stage after more than two years. It suggests to advance believes he has found evidence of a crime if not by trump then by someone potentially close to him or by his company district attorney. Vance has been looking at trump's business practices before he was president. Vance fought all the way to the supreme court to get the former president's tax returns days ends. New york's attorney general letitia. James is also conducting a civil investigation into trump. she recently joined forces with vance's office and the criminal inquiry. These investigations are believed to be largely stemming from cases involving trump's former lawyer and fixer. Michael cohen will eventually of course famously turned on his boss after pleading guilty to making hush money payoffs for trump and lying to congress his latest. This latest investigation appears to hinge on longtime trump organization. Cfo alan weisselberg. Who has been under pressure from the manhattan.

Well, if you lie to a bank about the assets that you put on an application that is actually at some point as bank fraud I don't know what dollar amount is, but at some point, that's bank front. If you Lied to the tax collector and say My property is worth nothing. I mean, it's not worth anywhere near what you think it's worth. And it's worth more than that is tax fraud because you would have had to pay a higher tax. Trying to prove those That's very, very difficult because what is Let's take your house. What is your house worth? Well. Okay, Whatever number you come up with. I may think it's worth less, or I may think it's worth more. What you think it's worth, and what I think is worth is nice. It's interesting. But until you have a willing buyer and a willing seller, it's simply a subjective number that you try to come up with. I know there's appraisers appraisers around there, You know, they work very diligently on Comparable prices, comparable real estate. But in the case of of the Trump organization, their process a lot of the properties that they have, and I've had over the years are unique. They're not comparable in as easy as it is to compare. Four bedroom, three bath home in your neighborhood. So I think.

"Carried out of the White House by the military. In the event, he lost reelection Did I really think it would happen? No, it's just what seemed to be a far fetched possibility. Now, though, it wouldn't surprise me in trying to absorb the events of the last couple of weeks. I'm almost numb and I'm guessing you are too We also the president of the United States organized and support a mob that was told they need to show strength that only the real Patriots of his rally could be counted on to overturn what he perceived to be fraudulent election results. They were told repeatedly that countless balance for trump or stolen tossed into a river fraudulently filled out or destroyed by various secretaries of state around the country. We were told that dead people were casting votes for Joe Biden. This, of course, was despite numerous independent observers contend it was the cleanest presidential election in our country's history. All reports indicate Trump actually enjoyed watching what he had done in unleashing the mob on the capital last Wednesday, this while the rest of America stared at the chaos and shock disbelief and discussed You have to wonder why it took the president so long to order that flags at the White House be flown at half staff in honor of capital Officer Brian Sick Nick, who died of injuries sustained during the insurrection and capital Officer Howard leaving good, who is also on duty during the riot and committed suicide on Saturday. Trump apparently hasn't reached out to the families of either officer. To express condolences. But that doesn't really surprise me. By reading Michael Cohen's book Disloyal. I Got to Better understand Trump's brutal treatment of everyone around him, his constant line and his boorish behavior. But even that book didn't prepare me for what's going on. Now he's showing the world what power is like and how dangerous it can be in the wrong hands. A PBS poll finds 63% Blame Trump for what happened at the Capitol, and the latest ABC News Ipsos poll says 56% of voters think he should be removed from office. I have three wishes at this point first, and most important is that Trump be stripped of any power years available to him for the nine days until Joe Biden takes the oath of office. I shudder to think of what he could do. And it's very troubling to hear that he has that any contact with his vice president Mike Pence since the insurrection, As Trump has demonstrated, he will seize any opportunity he gets to damage this country. If he perceives that, Simo, it helps him. We simply cannot take a chance on that. Whether it's the 25th amendment, impeachment resignation or any other way, just make him powerless. Second assurance he will never be able to run for any elected office in the future. I'm glad to see him banned from Twitter and other social media outlets, which should lessen his ability to whip up extremist supporters. But I worry that other channels will open up to take their place and I don't want to see a rerun of the Trump Circus and 2024 finally prosecute him or do anything I representatives for will adequately punished him. The horrible things that he has done. I do have concerns that all of this will distract from Biden's 1st 100 days in office when we desperately need a fresh start, but no president should be allowed to get away with this kind of treasonous behavior. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi called him deranged, unhinged and dangerous and says he represents an imminent threat to both our Constitution and our democracy. I couldn't agree more.
