Say Good Bye Donny, Cohen Reveals He Worked With Trump's Lawyers Preparing False Cong. Testimony

Mr. Cohen consulted with White House staff members and Mr. Trumpís ďlegal counselĒ as he prepared for his false congressional testimony, though it did not identify the lawyer, according to the memo. The document did not say if Mr. Cohen was asked to lie, nor did it identify which counsel he spoke with.

Michael D. Cohen, President Trumpís former personal lawyer who has twice pleaded guilty to crimes that have implicated Mr. Trump in illegal or questionable conduct, asked a federal judge late Friday night that he be allowed to avoid prison when he is sentenced in less than two weeks.

In a deeply personal memorandum that expressed Mr. Cohenís contrition and shame, defense lawyers portrayed him as a man whose personal and professional lives had been shattered, and who had harmed himself legally while trying to protect Mr. Trump.

In that plea, Mr. Cohen implicated Mr. Trump in hush-money payments to two women during the 2016 campaign to conceal affairs they said they had with Mr. Trump.

7. Dershowitz

is deeply compromised. I bet Trump's got him pinned to the wall with the Epstein scandal, among other things. But he's so deep in, it's up to his eyeballs.
