Trump Admits Knowledge of Stormy Daniels in Fox Interview

Mr. Cohen cited the Manhattan investigation in his filing on Wednesday, saying that, if called as a witness in Ms. Clifford’s lawsuit, “I will assert my 5th Amendment rights in connection with all proceedings in this case due to the ongoing criminal investigation by the F.B.I. and U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York.” [New York Times]

DID Michael Cohen open the vault by pleading the Fifth regarding the documents seized in the FBI raid of his home, hotel and office? You can’t have attorney-client privilege on a criminal matter.

Proof positive

But at least President Spanky cleared up one thing in a Fox telephone interview this morning, which comes after weeks and months of denials.

Trump then treated Michael Cohen like a disease, saying that he only handled “a tiny, tiny little fraction” of his legal work. I bet. The type of work that would be distasteful to most attorneys because it revolved around NDAs that strangle women’s voices, in agreements meant to shut them up.

Oh, and in other news, Ronny Jackson, Trump’s V.A. pick, has now withdrawn his nomination.

It’s 9:04 a.m.
