Michael Cohen Releases Secretly-Recorded Trump Tape; His Lawyer Lanny Davis Threatens That He's Ready to Talk, Whatever That Means
— Open Blogger



The impression many have gotten for a while is that Michael Cohen is threatening Trump to either get a pardon for whatever crimes he may have committed, and/or get Trump to pay his legal bills. And so he and his shyster, former Bill Clinton mouthpiece Lanny Davis, are ratcheting up pressure and threats to compel Trump to deliver something.

Alternately -- it could be that Cohen is already cooperating with prosecutors and so is threatening to release information in order to get Trump to contact him and ask him to not reveal anything more to investigators, at which point the feds would indict Trump for obstruction of justice.

So, obviously, Trump should not contact this guy.

Whatever their scheme, so far they haven't released much. They caught Trump on tape discussing possibly doing something legal -- to wit, buying someone's story through a third party (the National Enquirer) to keep the story quiet.

What would be the crime here? Will Mueller also start prosecuting blackmail victims for paying blackmail to their blackmailers?

I'm not saying this woman's a blackmailer -- but she was trying to make money off her sleazy story. She made that money. What's the harm? Trump was and is under no legal compulsion to share his sex history with anyone. Keeping a story quiet is only a crime under one circumstance -- when you're under legal compulsion to not hide it, as when you're under subpeona to disclose it or when it's being investigated by police. Neither of these things were true before, and I doubt they're even true now.

Unless, of course, Mueller has decided that blackmail victims can't pay hush money without being indicted for Conspiracy to Commit Privacy.

Which who knows- - maybe he has.

But Cohen, through his Clinton mouthpiece, has threatened that Cohen is now singing to the feds, whatever that's supposed to mean.

Davis, a damage-control maestro going back to the Clinton administration, told me: "Michael Cohen has made a turn. This is on the record -- Michael and I talked about it."

"Michael is going to tell the truth to the powers that be, and let the chips fall where they may."

"I've used this line too many times, but who talks about cash like that besides drug dealers and mobsters?"

Davis said that the tape's release sends the message: "I am no longer the previous Michael Cohen that you knew --taking a bullet for Donald Trump, saying anything to defend him, being a good soldier. ... That is over."

Davis said he was unable to say what Cohen's next move is: "I'm not saying there are more tapes as telling as [this] one, ... but there are more tapes. ... There is more to come."

Alan Derschowitz had already declared/predicted that Cohen would or already was "flipping" on Trump.

One area where I'm actually worried Trump might (might) have done wrong concerns the threats some people claim they got about laying off "Mr. Trump." That could have been Cohen behind that -- and Cohen will say it was Trump ordering him to do that, even if Trump actually only said "make it go away" or something like that.

4 30 years ago, Lanny Davis was arguing everyone lied about sex, that only crazy idiots think it's a crime. Today, he's arguing Trump should be impeached for banging hot women.

With optimal treatment, patients with GBs have a median survival of less than one year.1 About 2% of patients survive three years.4 Previously reported long-term survivors (LTSs) of GB may have been patients who actually harbored other low-grade gliomas.

46 Trumps voice is very clear on the recording, up until the "incriminating" bit about cash. I hear him say "don't pay cash". But it is strange how his voice becomes quiet and muddled at the exact moment, so the listener can hear whatever they are told to hear. Then it suddenly cuts off mid sentence. No agreement to do anything is actually on the recording.

59 Cohen is a particularly stupid and unethical lawyer (who secretly tapes his own clients!), so I think it is almost a certainty that Cohen actually ordered those hamfisted threats to silence witnesses. That's the next shoe to drop: Mueller probably has proof Cohen actually threatened witnesses. That is real jail time in pound-me-in-the-ass prison, and would certainly scare Cohen enough to make him do crazy stuff like leak this tape even though it will get him disbarred and he will never work again.

It's because there is nothing there that ties this crap, whatever it is, to Mueller's mandate. No Russian collusion, no nothing.

87 as Trump points out, the tapes get cut off when it makes Trump look good.

this is a variance on selective prosecution ... selective leaking of chopped up conversations, edited to distort the real/full context.

When that woman had a house that was a problem for Trump's parking at some casino (or some project) ... he didn't get someone to "make her go away" (and he surely wouldn't use his lawyer to do that) ... he dealt with it in court, and she held out and "won".  Later iirc she got less than Trump had offered.

There were enough sharks after Trump before, that it seems unlikely they have a smoking gun on Trump ordering some mobster to break any thumbs.

But what seems very likely is that Mueller DOES play the mafia/Soviet game of squeezing anyone/everyone using illegal/unethical tactics to compose the story Mueller orders.  That is Mueller's history ... yet he roams free, still terrorizing a duly elected president.

Oh, I see.

Can we assume they're putting the screws to every other client Cohen has or had, because what they've got Cohen for, has nothing to do with Trump other than Cohen is Trump's lawyer.

160 1. I think it's been determined that you can't indict a sitting president. Maybe after his stint in office, but not sitting. 2. The means of removing a sitting president is impeachment. Impeachment is a political process, not a legal one. There doesn't have to be a LEGAL reason to remove a president, just a VIABLE reason. 3. If the House flips -- and let's face it, that's a possibility -- the first order of business will be a bill of impeachment. Their constituents would lynch them if they didn't impeach at once. 4. This is what Mueller is up to: setting the table for impeachment. He doesn't have to have a crime, he just has to have an outrage, something to hang a bill of impeachment on. That's his mission now. He is setting the table. 5. Get. Out. And. Vote.

4. This is what Mueller is up to: setting the table for impeachment. He doesn't have to have a crime, he just has to have an outrage, something to hang a bill of impeachment on. That's his mission now. He is setting the table.

5. Get. Out. And. Vote.

227 Spin Cycle has a "fun" Lanny Davis story. Davis always called John Solomon at the AP in midmorning to check on the Senate hearing story and see if there was anything he should respond to... Now Solomon told him about the memo to Gore. "How much time do I have?" Davis asked. "Twenty minutes," Solomon said. Davis bolted out of the veep's second-floor office, down the stairs, through a connecting corridor to the Hart building, and up another flight to Margasak's side. He emerged into the tan-carpeted hallway only after Margasak had finished typing his documents. Lanny Davis ducked into a broom closet of a room in the Hart Building, a few steps to the left of the cavernous Thompson hearing room, where AP reporter Larry Margasak was banging away at a black laptop on a battered folding table. "These were simply statements of federal law and not of DNC policy," Davis recited as Margasak typed. He peered over the reporter's shoulder. "You want to say, based upon the understanding?" Davis asked. "That's fine," Margasak said impatiently. "C'mon, Lanny." Davis pointed to the screen and continued: "If you insert 'this is based upon' after the words 'soft money'..." He was injecting his verbiage directly into the wire story, the one that would set the tone for much of the day's coverage. A second AP reporter, James Rowley, looked on incredulously as his colleague took dictation from the White House spinmeister trying to save Al Gore's butt.

235 59 Cohen is a particularly stupid and unethical lawyer (who secretly tapes his own clients!), so I think it is almost a certainty that Cohen actually ordered those hamfisted threats to silence witnesses. That's the next shoe to drop: Mueller probably has proof Cohen actually threatened witnesses. That is real jail time in pound-me-in-the-ass prison, and would certainly scare Cohen enough to make him do crazy stuff like leak this tape even though it will get him disbarred and he will never work again. Posted by: wooga He claimed he would take a bullet for Trump. He has no honor. As it is, he's going to have his ass sued off by all three of his clients, and the lawyer's association is going to have to pony up to cover any shortfall. That's how it's done in Canada. I remember a case here when a lawyer used and lost some client trust money and each lawyer's annual dues went up to cover the costs that the Law society had to pay. I wish Cohen had some actual mob clients.

249 There's a version of the Aristocrats joke, that is so vile, when Gilbert Gottfried and Bob Saget heard it, they couldn't stop vomiting.  It goes like this:

A guy walks into the talent agent's office, and says "have I got an act for you."

He proceeds to act like Lanny Davis. 


And when he finishes, he says "The Aristocrats!!"

251 @219 Nobody is controlling this piece of shit. He is unbound from oversight and unmoared from morals and decency. The GOP controlled Senate could call him before the judicuary committee, and his supposed boss Rosenstein, to give an update on the investigation and demand that he put up or shut this witch hunt down but they are as traitorous as the Obama Administration. The GOP is a useless pile of dog shit.

261 242 illegal contacting of witnesses. Judge revoked Manfort's bail for that. The prosecution claimed he was trying to pressure/buy them into changing their story. ---------- so what? You're allowed to contact witnesses. Confront them even. As guili said, you do this for trying to kill witnesse (cough cough clintons). Anyway...speaking of intimidating witnesses, I guess SWAT raids on potential witnesses and squeezing them is in no way intimidating.

Not even when he had Mayor Nagan by the short hairs about the city evacuation and all the buses.  The media with their hysteria about cannibalism occurring in the stadium, etc.


With that said, Bush's legacy is a case study on why you can't take the high road with these cretins.  If they want a fight - give it to them.  Don't let it be a race to the bottom.  Get to the bottom immediately and give it to them good and hard.

264 Yeah, Trump don't play that stupid shit game Posted by: RoyalOil, Vicroy Canadian Territories at July 25, 2018 01:21 PM (TN1P5) Exactly where I keep coming back to. Not only does he not play that game, he just does not lose. I think much like the left believing their own polls in 2016, many believe that the President is a dunce and attack him as if he was one. That would be a grave error on their part. Read somewhere, maybe a summary of one of his books, that he always has at least two ways of winning in any negotiation. If the primary one goes south he has a fallback that is at worst a draw.

267 Does Cohen actually plan to have a legal career after this? Just who would confide in him after he recorded his client's conversations and then turned on them? If he really was a New York "fixer", then somebody is going to wait a few years for the furor to die down and then Cohen is going catch a sudden case of dead.

276 Fighting back only takes you so far. If the press finds something that resonates with the public, fighting back won't make much if any difference. Its just a matter of pushing and pushing and pushing until it works. If there's enough time, it usually works, eventually. Posted by: Christopher R Taylor at July 25, 2018 01:21 PM (39g3+) True, but your predicating that the press carries the same weight that they did during Katrina. The MFM is a national joke. Anyone, anywhere can say "fake news" and receive either a knowing nod or a screaming, spittle-flecked diatribe about Fox. Trump has completely revealed the press to be a bunch of ignorant, Democrat-felching propagandists. Hell, the whole "Russian hacking" thing is such a joke, I saw it used as a punchline in a Mother Goose and Grimm cartoon the other week. I don't think the press is going to win this one. Not with Trump's base. With the NeverTrumpers and the water-balled RINOs, however, I'm not so sure.

326 At some point as a lawyer, I'd be very careful about making enemies out of multimillionaires like Hannity, never mind rhe billionaire President. Someone is going to go after his head, and unless he perjures himself not even liberals will rise to his defense. -------- Let me get this straight, you think that your client, one of the wealthiest and most powerful men in the world, is secretly a vigilante, who spends his nights beating criminals to a pulp with his bare hands, and your plan is to blackmail this person? - The Dark Knight

327 323 Why isn't there mouse-flavored cat food? Posted by: wrg500 at July 25, 2018 01:38 PM (Bdeb0) there is chicken flavored cat food... Posted by: runner at July 25, 2018 01:40 PM (bUjCl) There is beef flavored cat food, but cats don't normally eat cows in the wild.

329 322 311 Why isn't there mouse-flavored cat food? Posted by: wrg500 at July 25, 2018 01:38 PM (Bdeb0) Which brings up a valid question - who taste tests the cat food? What does mouse taste like? (let me guess, chicken).I tried the dog biscuits one time to see why they were so batshit crazy to get them from me. Totally uninspiring. Posted by: DamnedYankee at July 25, 2018 01:40 PM (37IEG) That thought crossed my mind the other day feeding my cat. I looked at several open cans of food, and it all looked the same. But they know I'll never taste test it to see if it is. They hold all the cards.

330 because he thinks it's somehow gross and immoral. Isn't there a Jewish thing with meat and milk? Maybe it's related. Posted by: t-bird at July 25, 2018 01:25 PM (nIvDu) ======== I doubt it's related, except in the initial visceral impulse that led some religious leader to codify it. This guy probably couldn't justify why he feels this way, if he were willing to eat each separately. The Jewish view is based on passages like Ex 23:19: You shall not boil a young goat in its mother's milk. Later Jewish theologians extrapolated this principle to forbid any mixing of flesh with dairy, based on the principle of "building a hedge" around this verse.

331 My cat would probably think that a mouse was some kind of laser-pointer trick, and ignore it.

333 Who was the first person to look at a cow and say, 'I think I'll squeeze these dangly things here and drink whatever comes out'?

Posted by: wrg500 at July 25, 2018 01:31 PM (Bdeb0)

That one bothers me less than the first guy who ate a squid or an octopus.

I suspect the conversation went like this -

Holds up squid.

"What the zug-zug is THAT?"
"I don't know, but it's all I caught today, so we're going to eat it".
"Hmm, I think maybe it would work with a fennel pasta and some lemon and herbs."

Cat loooooves beef and the canned food variety pack only has a percentage of beef, most is turkey, chicken, tuna.  Can't even eat a hamburger around him without serious attempts at beef theft/rustling.

You mean Bison of course, because you know we aren't calling them buffalo any more.    I'll be glad when I die and I don't have to relearn names for things.

338 Why isn't there mouse-flavored cat food? Posted by: wrg500 at July 25, 2018 01:38 PM (Bdeb0) I think cats just enjoy hunting them, only eating them as a last resort (as when they guarded Egyptian granaries). If given a choice between that and a nice slice of steak or sushi, they'd take the latter.

342 170 160 If the house flips -yeah there will be an impeachment. But it still has to go through the Senate for the trial. Only after the Senate convicts will PDT be removed. Posted by: Our Country is Screwed ---------- Doesn't the house have to gain 2/3 approval for impeachment articles to go to the Senate who then has to gain 2/3 approval to actually impeach PDJFT? It just isn't going to happen...

343 Why isn't Manafort out on recognizance, or ankle bracelet ?? Posted by: kraken at July 25, 2018 01:33 PM (DpEis) He is in the clink because of one of those 'new legal theories' Mueller's team is fond of. Namely, if we don't deliver a list of witnesses to the defense then anyone the defendant talks to is witness tampering. And that Obama appointee hack Amy Berman Jackson was fine with it.

345 Maxine Waters says God sent her to destroy Trump. ------ If Maxine Waters is an agent of the Lord, then I've been terribly misled, and I'm joining Team Satan. Luckily, I'm morally certain this is not the case.

If given a choice between that and a nice slice of steak or sushi, they'd take the latter. Posted by: Steve and Cold Bear at July 25, 2018 01:46 PM (/qEW2) ------ Some cats. My beloved cat Pantera (when she was alive) would always take a live meal when available. During the hunting months (for her, in CO, this was basically March to mid-November), her food bowl would literally gather dust, even if I put tuna in it. She would eat 5-7 critters a day, and leave their stripped spines and skulls in a neat row on the doormat as a gift for me when I got home. That cat was freaking awesome.

Posted by: Comrade at July 25, 2018 09:10 AM (1JLkt)

350 88 For once I have to agree with JackStraw. This is complete media-driven clickbait nothing. The people who are on Trump's side don't GAF. The people who hate Trump will still hate him. This changes nothing. *** It is going to change something come November! A lot of Congressional Democrats are going have lots more time to spend with their families. Well, except the ones who will only get to visit through a pane of glass during visiting hours.

352 Again, everyone who goes up against Trump ends up self immolating. Who would ever hire a lawyer who secretly taped calls? Sounds like he is clearly violating client confidentiality. And of course the left is happy to abandon any civil rights concerns because Trump.

353 "What would be the crime here? Will Mueller also start prosecuting blackmail victims for paying blackmail to their blackmailers?"
That's pretty much what they did to Denny Hastert.

354 Lanny Davis/cnn had no problem with the Gennifer Flowers tapes: Wherein Bill Clinton he tells her to lie. Clearly.

Posted by: Devan at July 25, 2018 09:23 AM (kC+1/)

355 I'm so sick of this crap. Every single Trump voter/supporter I know (family/friends/co-workers, and that's @30 people) flat out DON'T GIVE A F*** THAT TRUMP BANGED HOT WOMEN. For F*** Sake, we know the guy is a casanova when it comes to hot women. He's DONALD FREAKIN' TRUMP. But DJT, to my knowledge, has never been caught in a public lie, nor does he have the reputation of being a liar or fraud in his business dealings. DJT may be bombastic as all hell, but a dishonest sneaky-shit like the swamp rats in DC? Oh hell no, he's been accused of being many things, a liar ain't one of them. Seriously, F*** the fMSM and the DC Deep State traitors.

Posted by: Volchek at July 25, 2018 09:26 AM (qoKST)

356 Whatever their scheme, so far they haven't released much. They caught Trump on tape discussing possibly doing something legal -- to wit, buying someone's story through a third party (the National Enquirer) to keep the story quiet. I thought they were talking about buying from a 3rd party who had already paid the skank for the rights to her story, no?

Posted by: Grump928(c) the cyclops at July 25, 2018 09:37 AM (yQpMk)

357 Or Trump and Cohen could be setting up CNN and the people who seized the tape. But Trumps not that smart, Kristol and Jonah told me so.

360

Davis said that the tape's release sends the message: "I am no longer the previous Michael Cohen that you knew --taking a bullet for Donald Trump, saying anything to defend him, being a good soldier. ... That is over."

Davis said he was unable to say what Cohen's next move is: "I'm not saying there are more tapes as telling as [this] one, ... but there are more tapes. ... There is more to come."

Translation: My client has decided to retire permanently by preemptively driving away anyone who might want to hire him in the future by very publicly proving he that he does not understand the word "confidential" and, by the way, this nothing burger is the most damaging thing he had on tape.
