REPORT: Manafort’s Lawyers Have Been Working With Trump Team Since Plea Deal

Published

on

In September, mainstream press outlets gleefully reported that Paul Manafort former campaign chairman to President Donald J. Trump had “flipped” on the President to take a plea deal with Special Counsel Robert S. Mueller III in the Russian “collusion” hoax.

In a shocking turn of events, the mainstream press was wrong – as usual.

As reported by Boston Globe Tuesday and confirmed by Rudolph W. Giuliani, one of Trump’s personal attorneys, Manafort’s legal team has been briefing Trump’s legal team on the goings-on between Manafort and Mueller since the plea deal was arranged.

“A lawyer for Paul Manafort, the president’s onetime campaign chairman, repeatedly briefed President Trump’s lawyers on his client’s discussions with federal investigators after Manafort agreed to cooperate with the special counsel, according to one of Trump’s lawyers and two other people familiar with the conversations,” the report said.

This arrangement, which is perfectly legal, is the exact opposite of what the political left and their allies in the mainstream press were hoping. They wanted Manafort to completely disavow Trump and help the Special Counsel.

“Such information could help shape a legal defense strategy, and it also appeared to give Trump and his legal advisers ammunition in their public relations effort against the special counsel’s office,” the report said.

Trump, armed with insider information of the Mueller probe, has ramped up his already-forceful attacks on the shady barrister’s two-year probe. Tuesday he accused Mueller of “ruining lives” for “refusing to lie.”

“The Phony Witch Hunt continues, but Mueller and his gang of Angry Dems are only looking at one side, not the other. Wait until it comes out how horribly & viciously they are treating people, ruining lives for them refusing to lie. Mueller is a conflicted prosecutor gone rogue….” Trump said.

Clearly, Mueller does not have a star witness or ally in Manafort. If he did, it is likely that Manafort would have already done the “flipping” as promised by the mainstream press. Instead, the Mueller investigation has not advanced past where it began before charging Manafort with financial crimes unrelated to the Trump campaign.

Second Former Andrew Cuomo Aide Accuses Disgraced Governor of Sexual Harassment

Cuomo has refused to resign.

Published

on

A second former aide has accused beleaguered New York Governor Andrew Cuomo of sexual harassment, speaking the New York Times on Saturday.

Charlotte Bennett served as an executive assistant and health policy adviser in the Governor’s office until November of last year, and recounted a series of incidents where she was propositioned about her sex life and the governor’s preferences.

Ms. Bennett, 25, said the most unsettling episode occurred on June 5, when she was alone with Mr. Cuomo in his State Capitol office. In a series of interviews this week, she said the governor had asked her numerous questions about her personal life, including whether she thought age made a difference in romantic relationships, and had said that he was open to relationships with women in their 20s — comments she interpreted as clear overtures to a sexual relationship.”

Cuomo also allegedly questioned Bennett on her opinions of non-monogamous relationships.

I understood that the governor wanted to sleep with me, and felt horribly uncomfortable and scared,” Bennett said. “And was wondering how I was going to get out of it and assumed it was the end of my job.

Bennett is the second former Cuomo staffer to come public with accounts of sexual harassment. Lindsey Boylan, an ex-Cuomo aide who had previously spoken of toxicity in the establishment Democrat’s office. Boylan alleges that Cuomo asked her to play strip poker on a plane, that his underlings communicated he had a “crush” on her, and that the Governor would frequently touch her back and her arms.

Cuomo is currently facing a possible impeachment or censure from the New York legislature for his cover-up of the state’s disastrous nursing home scandal, in which the deaths of thousands of senior citizens were covered up in order to deflect an investigation from the Department of Justice. Leading Democrats such as Ron Kim have called for his resignation, and it may prove the new sexual harassment allegations could be the final straw.
