Michael Cohen Fights Senate Committee on Russia: ‘Unnamed or Unverifiable Sources’

Published

on

President Donald Trump’s personal attorney Michael Cohen is fighting the Senate witch hunt into alleged Russian involvement in Trump-World political and/or business practices.

The Senate Intelligence Committee has decided to subpoena Cohen after cancelling his friendly un-compelled testimony. The Committee is trying to big-foot Cohen because he released a statement to the media denying and all Russia connections.

“Let me be totally clear that I am innocent of the allegations raised against me in the public square, which are based upon misinformation and unnamed or unverifiable sources,” Cohen said in his opening statement to the Committee, which he gave to the media, thus angering the Russia witch hunt investigators.

“I have never engaged with, been paid by, paid for, or conversed with any member of the Russian Federation or anyone else to hack Democratic Party computers; and I have never engaged with, been paid by, paid for, or conversed with any member of the Russian Federation or anyone else to create fake news stories to assist the Trump campaign or to damage the Clinton campaign,” Cohen said.

The Senate convened its Russia witch hunt before seeing any evidence whatsoever that Russia colluded with Team Trump during the election. As I reported from a March 30 Foreign Relatitons Committee hearing for The American Spectator:

“Top Democrats on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee said Thursday that they have not yet seen any evidence that the Donald Trump campaign colluded with the Russians during the 2016 election, even as hearings meant to probe the unsubstantiated claims dominate Capitol Hill.

“I think, uh. I haven’t seen the evidence because it hasn’t been made public,” Sen. Jeanne Shaheen of New Hampshire told The American Spectator during recess in a Foreign Relations Committee hearing featuring Madeleine Albright. “So I’m waiting to see what the intelligence committees come up with.”

“Um, the investigation is ongoing,” Sen. Tim Kaine of Virginia told The American Spectator, declining to confirm that he has seen any evidence.

“Well, I think there’s a bunch of really really suspicious contacts” Sen. Tom Udall of New Mexico told The American Spectator. “And the timing, and the contacts, it doesn’t look good for them. It looks very very suspicious.”

Pressed on evidence, Udall confirmed that he has not seen definitive proof. “There is significant evidence that there were a number of contacts, and the question is, what was said? It looks very suspicious.” Democrats have been focusing on the fact that Attorney General Jeff Sessions, a Trump campaign surrogate, met with the Russian ambassador at the Republican National Convention at an event set up by the Obama State Department and co-sponsored by the Heritage Foundation.

“That’s why they’re having the committee hearings today, and I haven’t seen the results of the committee hearings yet,” Sen. Tom Carper of Delaware said. “And I haven’t seen the results of the committee hearings yet.”

“I’m going to my hearing,” Sen. Cory Booker of New Jersey told The American Spectator, laughing nervously.

Sen. Ben Cardin of Maryland, the top Democrat on the Foreign Relations Committee, would not answer The American Spectator‘s repeated questions about the lack of evidence, even though he stated in the hearing in no uncertain terms that “Russia sought to undermine and interfere in our elections.”

Both the Senate Foreign Relations and Intelligence Committees convened hearings Thursday to investigate the Trump-Russia suspicions, which so far have not been backed up by a single piece of incontrovertible evidence.

John Podesta “Refused to Concede” In Democratic Election Wargame While Roleplaying as Joe Biden

Prepping for the real thing?

Published

on

A Democratic election simulation program preparing party elites for possible outcomes of the November presidential election has featured a scenario in which Joe Biden, who was roleplayed by Democratic operative John Podesta, will refuse to concede defeat in the election, according to reporting about the event from the New York Times.

The so-called Transition Integrity Project was created with the idea of preparing Democratic Party elites for four different outcomes of the election. One result of the election simulation wargame involved an electoral college simulation in which President Donald Trump secures a strong electoral vote victory while losing the popular vote to Biden, who was played by the former Clinton operative Podesta.

Podesta refused to concede the presidential election in that scenario, citing what he maintained was voter suppression in Wisconsin and Michigan. Podesta, within the confines of the scenario, convinced the governors of the states to send the votes of pro-Biden electors to the House in an attempt to inaugurate Biden as President, despite losing the states.

In the scenario, the House of Representatives recognized Joe Biden as the legitimate President of the United States, while the executive branch of the federal government and the Senate recognized President Trump as the rightful President.

Perhaps most shockingly, in the roleplay scenario Podesta was impersonating Biden in, the Democrat states of California, Washington, and Oregon openly threatened to secede from the United States in the event that President Trump was sworn in for a second term in office, upping the stakes of the constitutional crisis to the point of a potential Second American Civil War with a beginning similar to the first one.

The roleplay of the event ended when organizers determined the American people would look to the military to resolve the situation.

That the Democratic Party elites  would even maintain such a fundamental rejection of an American election as legitimate shows the danger of the extremist neoliberal party.
