This afternoon, Michael Cohen plead guilty in a New York federal court. With new charges mounted against him regarding the Russia-Trump deal, Cohen cracked.
The latest breakthrough in the Mueller probe has Trump upset! Cohen has admitted to lying about the details of the Russia-Trump deal to “be consistent with the president’s political messaging. Having previously pleaded guilty to charges filed in Manhattan, Cohen has agreed to cooperate with federal prosecutors.
Court documents show that Cohen lied about the “Moscow Project”– Trump Organization’s attempt to pursue a branded property in Russia. Displeased with this shocking revelation, Trump alleged that Cohen is lying to receive a reduced sentence.
Rudy Giuliani was quick to come to Trump’s defense.
“Michael Cohen is a liar. It’s no surprise that Cohen lied to Congress. He’s a proven liar who is doing everything he can to get out of a long-term prison sentence for serious crimes of bank and tax fraud that had nothing to do with the Trump Organization…With regard to the hotel proposal in Moscow, the President has been completely open and transparent.”
Cohen previously served as Trump’s personal attorney and professional fixer. He was notably involved in the Stormy Daniels coverup as well as bank fraud.
Cohen, who once claimed he would take a bullet for Trump, is now facing 5 years in prison and a potential $200,000 fine. This plea is separate from the charges he faced in relation to campaign finance charges.
According to ABC, outside the courtroom, Cohen’s lawyer said his client will “continue to cooperate with the investigation.” Having pledged to “put family and country first”, Cohen is making his power play by turning on his former employer.
Locked up! Michael Cohen Sentenced to 3 Years in Prison
Trump’s Ex-lawyer, Michael Cohen, has been sentenced to three years in prison! After pleading guilty to nine federal charges, the fixer has found himself a one way ticket to Club Fed.
You are going to jail! Periodt!
Michael Cohen stood before Judge William Pauley and tearfully apologized to his family and the people of the United States. Cohen cried:
“Recently, the President tweeted a statement calling me weak and it was correct, but for a much different reason than he was implying. It was because time and time again I felt it was my duty to cover up his dirty deeds.”
While Cohen’s lawyers had argued against a prison sentence on the grounds of his cooperation with Mueller, he will still face 36 months for 8 charges. For the Mueller charge, he faces an additional 2 months as well as a $50,000 fine. As of now, he has to turn himself in March 6th, 2019.
Cohen pleaded guilty just 13 days ago.
Trump Exposed for Employing Undocumented Maid
Donald Trump has been exposed for employing undocumented workers. In a story broken by the New York Times, Victorina Morales says she isn’t the only one.
With more than five years of employment behind her, Ms. Morales has recently received a certificate from the White House Communications Agency. Inscribed with her name, the award commends her “outstanding” support. There’s just one problem — Morales is an undocumented immigrant.
Victorina Morales came to the United States from Guatemala, crossing in 1999. Leaving her life as a corn farmer, Morales applied to and was hired at the Trump property in 2013 with phony documents. In her interview with The Times, Morales admits she knows she was not the only worker who was in the country illegally. But salacious comments have inspired her and others to reveal Trump’s hypocrisy.
“We are tired of the abuse, the insults, the way he talks about us when he knows that we are here helping him make money. We sweat it out to attend to his every need and have to put up with his humiliation”
“There are many people without papers”
Throughout Donald Trump’s campaign, the issue of border security and the fight to protect the American workforce has been a priority. However, Trump has a history of staffing his properties with migrant and undocumented workers. Despite signing a “Buy American, Hire American” executive order in 2017, Trump’s companies have hired hundreds of foreigners.
Though Trump and his Organization allege there is no evidence executives knew of their immigration status, lower level management was aware. Staff at the Bedminster location claim supervisors went so far as to help workers evade detection. The Trump Organization, which owns the property, had this to say:
“We have tens of thousands of employees across our properties and have very strict hiring practices.”
The White House has yet to release a statement.
“Womp! Womp! Womp!”Cindy Hyde-Smith Declared Winner of Mississippi Senate Run Off
Not surprisingly white supremacy has won this evening as Cindy Hyde-Smith was declared the winner of the Mississippi senate runoff. As of now the results are saying Cindy has won with 56.1% of the votes and Mike Espy has received a total of 43.8% of the votes.
In this unreleased (til now) longer version of Cindy Hyde-Smith’s “public hanging” vid, a supporter yells “Then do it!” after she says, “If there was a public hanging, I’d be on the front row.” This clip, obtained & sent to @JxnFreePress by @bayoubrief, adds new context. #MSSen pic.twitter.com/RYaahR34mC

Even after publicly saying, “If there was a public hanging, I’d be on the front row.” in a video during her campaign run Cindy Hyde-Smith still managed to secure more than enough votes to retain her seat. Recently it was also revealed Hyde-Smith attended a segregated academy in the 70’s where she was a cheerleader.
I guess she still isn’t too much far off from what she used to do. She’s using her platform to cheer on white supremacy and gain their support.
Not to mention that just recently Hate Signs and Nooses were found on the Mississippi State Capitol the day before the runoff election took place.
Before I hear anyone say “more black people needed to get out and vote for Espy”, there are more white people in numbers who will show up and show out to retain whatever power they can when it comes to voting. Even if that power is immoral and keeps everyone from progressing forward with new ideas for improvement.
Let’s not also forget in a last ditch effort to rally up the white supremacists in the state, The Head Cheeto in Charge paid a visit in Mississippi and fired up the Republican base to get them amped up. In a clip he said, “How does he fit in with Mississippi? How does he even fit In?”
The closing weeks of Mississippi's runoff Senate race have focused on controversial comments by Republican Sen. Cindy Hyde-Smith, showing her joking about a public hanging and voter suppression, @edokeefe reports; the polls close at 8 p.m. ET https://t.co/8E22iVwaQ0 pic.twitter.com/ODO19OHe57

While this is not the result we were hoping for, I am proud of the historic campaign we ran and grateful for the support we received across Mississippi.

It has been reported that Mike Espy has conceded from the race and wished Hyde-Smith prayers as she heads off to Washington D.C. to join up with the Senate. Mike Espy also tweeted some tweets that will help to keep hope alive for potential elections to come in the state of Mississippi.

Although the Democrats have lost another senate seat in congress we still were able to overturn the house and bring in a lot of new people in congress who will hopefully represent what we want to see change in America going forward.
As for the rest of the country a change is coming as more and more people are becoming politically aware and knowledgable of people’s policies and the outcome if they vote a certain way. Now we just have to wait and see what our next hurdle will be.
