National Enquirer boss granted immunity in Cohen probe

U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions speaks during a news conference regarding the country's opioid epidemic on Aug. 22 in Cleveland

He pointed out that none of the charges against Cohen involved his Presidential campaign.

Trevor Potter is the president of the Campaign Legal Center and a Republican former chairman of the Federal Election Commission.

David Pecker, the CEO of the Enquirer's publisher, American Media Inc., has been granted immunity by the feds as part of an ongoing probe into Trump's former lawyer Michael Cohen and the payments made to two women who allegedly slept with the president.

Cohen is Trump's former personal attorney.

Michael Cohen, Trump's lawyer/fixer/poop catcher pleaded guilty to committing campaign finance violations and said he did so at the direction of the president.

Cohen paid Daniels $130,000 in exchange for her silence, according to court papers. As I wrote this morning in my theory of where the Trump investigations are headed, Trump's biggest problems have been his self-inflicted wounds, and there is no reason to believe they won't continue into the future. "I would possibly light were more high-quality - in conjunction with with you - that I could not independently verify what came about", he mentioned, in conjunction with: "I remorse my error". On Tuesday he pleaded guilty to eight felony counts, including tax evasion.

Mr. Trump has also denied having sex with the second woman, adult-film actress Stormy Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford.

John McCain's Farewell Statement
Through much of Monday, Trump refused to answer reporters' questions about McCain, who refused to support his presidential bid. And Germany's chancellor, Angela Merkel, called McCain "a tireless fighter for a strong trans-Atlantic alliance".

But Trump and his defenders are wrong. "The answer is that I did NOT know regarding the meeting".

A jury won't have to weigh in on Cohen, of course. Yet neither Mueller nor Rod Rosenstein, the Justice Department official who appointed him, have shown that they understand the damage their investigation could do to our country. Referring to both the Cohen and Manafort cases, he referred to the DOJ practice of "flipping", and said it should be illegal. "So unfair Jeff, Double Standard", he tweeted. But Cohen was never given a prominent spot in the campaign.

That evidence, as laid out in the plea agreement, was substantial. The deal also included an arrangement for McDougal to publish columns in AMI's publications, which she claims they did not fulfill. What person committed to Trump's brand of conservatism is going to want to take professional risks to serve him after seeing how shabbily Sessions was treated? That would just make Cohen's payment a loan to the Trump campaign.

The legal system dumped two political hazards this week on Trump. In each of these instances, Cohen admitted to engaging in his activity knowingly and willfully, which is the standard for criminal conduct.

And despite telling confidants that he thought he had a shot at White House chief of staff after the election, Cohen was never given a West Wing job. "I took control of the Department of Justice the day I was sworn in, which is why we have had unprecedented success at effectuating the President's agenda".

For Michael Cohen and Donald Trump, it's always been about money and loyalty.
