Mueller attorney reveals Cohen provided ‘credible’ info about ‘links between a campaign and a foreign government’


An attorney who works for special counsel Robert Mueller’s office on Wednesday revealed that former Trump “fixer” Michael Cohen had given them “credible” and “valuable” information about what she described as “links between a campaign and a foreign government.”


As reported by Courthouse News’ Adam Klasfeld, Special Counsel’s Office prosecutor Jeannie Rhee told the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York that Cohen had given her office information about what is very likely connections between President Donald Trump’s 2016 campaign and the Russian government.

USA Today Gives More Evidence Of Illegal Trump Collusion With Russia


President Donald Trump engaged in campaign violations and colluded with Russia, committing both crimes “in plain sight” according to an op-ed published in 


Ethics watchdogs Fred Wertheimer and Norm Eisen wrote the op-ed, pointing out Trump’s obvious crimes. One, of course, occurred when Trump’s longtime attorney, Michael Cohen, implicated the president in a conspiracy when he pleaded guilty to violating campaign finance laws.


The other occurred when Trump called on Russia to find Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton’s missing emails during a July 27, 2016, speech. This event took place after the media reports showing that U.S. intelligence agencies had evidence that Russian operatives hacked the Democratic National Committee email servers.


According to Wertheimer and Eisen, Trump’s public comments requesting that Russia obtain Hillary Clinton’s emails were a clear violation of federal law.


They wrote:


“On July 27, 2016, Trump called on Russia to find presidential Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton’s missing emails. “Russia, if you’re listening, I hope you’re able to find the 30,000 emails that are missing,” Trump proclaimed. He added, “I think you will probably be rewarded mightily by our press.” Federal campaign finance law prohibits any person from soliciting campaign contributions, defined as anything of value to be given to influence an election, from a foreign national, including a foreign government.”


“In asking Russia to find Clinton’s emails, presidential candidate Trump violated this statutory prohibition on seeking help from a foreign country to influence an election. Trump in essence called on a foreign adversary to locate and release something that was of great value to him and his campaign.”


The two ethics lawyers point out that federal law prohibits the mere solicitation of help from a foreign country. It does not matter whether anything is actually delivered, or if help is actually given.


But, they added, it appears that Russia soon after Trump’s speech did in fact hack Clinton’s computers and obtain her mails:


“But in this case, on or around the same day that Trump solicited help from Russia, Russia made its first attempt to break into servers that Hillary Clinton’s personal office used. That event is laid out in detail in an indictment of Russian hackers obtained by special counsel Robert Mueller.”


The writers also said that Trump had been warned just before his infamous “Russia, if you’re listening” speech that for him to ask for help from foreign interests would be illegal. They know because one them warned him.


At the time news organizations had reported that Trump’s campaign was violating the ban on foreign solicitations by emailing fundraising solicitations to foreign nationals, Wertheimer and Eisen pointed out. And after that, they  filed complaints with the Federal Election Commission and the Justice Department against Trump’s presidential campaign committee for illegally soliciting financial support from foreign countries.


The time has come for Donald Trump to be held accountable for these crimes, the authors wrote, saying:


“The Trump campaign is legally responsible under principles of vicarious liability for the statements of its head, and so could be indicted. The Russia solicitation could be included in an indictment featuring other counts, such as charging the campaign and the Trump Organization for the separate alleged hush money violations described by Cohen.”


“No Justice Department policy prohibits prosecutors from naming the president as an unindicted co-conspirator in such an indictment.”


“And with a five-year statute of limitations, he could still be prosecuted for these alleged knowing and willful 2016 offenses should he fail to seek or secure re-election in 2020.”

I think I read that a sealed inditement can backdate the statute of limitations and there might already be indictments that have been locked away ??

‘We have the umbilical cord’: Harvard Law professor explains Don Jr. and Jared Kushner are caught on collusion


Constitution expert Laurence Tribe — who has taught at Harvard Law for half a century — explained how Donald Trump, Jr. violated federal law during the 2016 president.


On MSNBC’s “The Beat” with Ari Melber, Tribe explained the significance to Tuesday’s bombshell reports that Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya was charged with obstruction of justice and Paul Manafort’s attorneys inadvertently revealing how he mislead special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigators.


Tribe has argued before the Supreme Court three dozen times and is the co-author of the 2018 book To End a Presidency: The Power of Impeachment.


“Professor Tribe, how do you view this in the larger context of these multiple investigations?” Melber asked.


“Ari, I view it as quite a bombshell,” Tribe belied.


“The Veselnitskaya part is probably less profound than the Manafort part, but I agree with Glenn [Kirschner] that Veselnitskaya is now clearly exposed as an agent of the Kremlin,” he explained.


“So that when an offer was made at that infamous Trump Tower meeting of emails from Hillary Clinton, the offer that Donald Jr. said he would ‘love’ if it came at the right time in the campaign, we now know that that’s basically an offer of help from the Kremlin and a violation of American Law, which forbids accepting offers or soliciting offers of foreign help,” Tribe explained.


“As far as Manafort is concerned, we now have the umbilical cord that connects all of the Russian-side conspiracies with the American-side conspiracies,” he added.


In addition to Manafort, senior White House advisor Jared Kushner and Donald Trump, Jr. likely have significant legal exposure after participating in the Trump Tower meeting.


“And it means that the president’s son and the head of the president’s campaign and the president’s son-in-law — all of those people were soliciting help, not just from some random Russian, but from the Kremlin,” he concluded.


“All that’s missing is a bow to tie this whole thing into a knot,” Tribe added. “And I think we are now seeing the structure of a multinational conspiracy to help Donald Trump win the election. “It’s quite profound.”


“It’s profound when you put it like that,” Melber agreed.
