1. Trump from Michael_Novakhov (197 sites): Palmer Report: Sean Hannity just completely screwed himself

  •  
  •

  •  

“President” Donald Trump had a taped interview with his bromance on the mainland, Sean “Insanity” Hannity. The two cannot help themselves but tell more sweet nothings to each other, aka lies.


In the interview, Sean Hannity told Trump, while discussing hush-money payments to Trump’s mistresses, “I can tell you personally, [Cohen] said to me at least a dozen times, that he made the decision on the payments and he didn’t tell you.” Hannity, meet House Committees. This injection into the Cohen testimony and your statements will now put you in the chair before various committees, where you will have to testify under oath. And when there, you must remember your party’s brilliant slogan, “Promises Made, Promises Kept.” You will be asked if you intend to tell the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth, and you will promise to do so. Make sure to keep those promises.




Also, you might want to retain some smart counsel. As you will recall, you fought tooth and nail last April to quash any mention of the fact that you were the third of three Michael Cohen legal clients. Maybe some have forgotten, but I am guessing the freshmen class of House Democrats populating various committees, as well as Chairs Nadler, Waters, and Schiff, have not. You can expect to be asked what that was about. You do have attorney-client privilege on that, but it may not help you.




Trump did himself no favors during the interview, claiming that Cohen made the payments of his own accord. Funny thing, though, crime exceptions to attorney-client privilege and payments of hush money might not fit into the definition of providing legal advice. Fixers and bribers are not traditionally subject to attorney-client privilege. Trump had this to say about the payments, before Hannity gave his statements: “[Cohen] did and he made the decision. Remember this, he’s an attorney – whatever decision he makes, you’re supposed to rely on your attorney to make a decision. … It’s also called reliance.”



Donald Trump’s quote also leaves a question: who told Michael Cohen that payments were necessary in the first place? Oh, and perhaps tread carefully and get some good legal help as well: how do you explain a personal check for $35,000 made payable to Cohen while you were president?

1. Trump from Michael_Novakhov (197 sites): Palmer Report: Sean Hannity just got himself subpoenaed in Donald Trump’s scandals

  •  
  •  
  •  
  •  


The only thing more constant than Sean Hannity’s devotion to Donald Trump? Sean Hannity’s endless stupidity. Those two things came to a head on Thursday night when Hannity interviewed Trump on Fox News. The whole thing was one big pro-Trump propaganda fest, of course. But then Hannity made an unprompted confession.




Donald Trump and Sean Hannity were discussing Michael Cohen’s illegal hush money payments to Trump’s mistresses, when Hannity said this: “I can tell you personally, [Cohen] said to me at least a dozen times that he made the decision on the payments and he didn’t tell you.” Here’s the kicker: Hannity just revealed that he’s a witness at the least, and perhaps more – and that’s enough for him to be subpoenaed.




That means we’re about to see the surreal spectacle of one or more House investigative committees hauling in Sean Hannity to testify about these supposed conversations he had with Michael Cohen. What’s more, Hannity will be under oath. He appears to be lying about the matter. If he also lies about it under oath, and it can be proven, he’ll go to prison for it. The same goes for every other lie he’s told on-air to protect Trump. But that’s just the start.



If it hasn’t already, the SDNY can now subpoena Sean Hannity and question him about the entire thing. Michael Cohen appeared to confirm yesterday that SDNY is indeed criminally investigating Donald Trump for his crimes, so Hannity can be seen as a material witness in that regard. Then again, for that matter, Cohen may have given away during his testimony that Hannity is under SDNY investigation already.

Politics: Trump sought top-secret security clearance for Jared Kushner last year despite concerns of John Kelly and intelligence officials

The president’s directive made Kelly, his chief of staff at the time, so uncomfortable that Kelly documented the request in writing, according to current and former administration officials.

1. Trump from Michael_Novakhov (197 sites): Palmer Report: Here comes that Ivanka Trump subpoena

  •  
  •  
  •  
  •  


By the time Michael Cohen was done publicly testifying before the House Oversight Committee on Wednesday, it was abundantly clear that Donald Trump Jr would be hauled in to testify about what was being discussed. Junior’s name came up over and over again, and in fact his signature was on a piece of smoking gun evidence. Now it turns out Junior’s sister will be joining him as well.




Yesterday we saw Adam Schiff and the House Intelligence Committee announce that it was hauling in Trump Organization CFO Allen Weisselberg and Russian mafia money launderer Felix Sater to testify about their roles in Donald Trump’s scandals. When it came to Elijah Cummings and the House Oversight Committee, he simply told reporters that everyone substantively mentioned by Michael Cohen will be hauled him. When a reporter asked if that included Trump’s kids, he simply said to check the transcript and see who was mentioned.




Michael Cohen definitely mentioned Ivanka Trump during his public testimony. So guess what? She’s about to get hauled in to testify. Assuming she tries to fight it due to the legal jeopardy and embarrassment at stake, Cummings will simply subpoena her to testify. From there she’ll have to either show up or risk being held in contempt of Congress and ordered by the courts to show up.



So now we know that Ivanka Trump is going to be hauled in to testify before Congress, just like Donald Trump Jr is going to be hauled in to testify. Interestingly, Ivanka is coming off a particularly bad day. She was caught making false statements about her husband’s security clearance. She also has ties to upcoming witness Felix Sater. These pieces are all starting to fit together.

1. Trump from Michael_Novakhov (197 sites): Palmer Report: Matt Gaetz is in even more trouble than we thought

  •  
  •  
  •  
  •  

Republican Congressman Matt Gaetz is in a lot of trouble. Overheard last night by Edward-Isaac Dovere of the Atlantic, Gaetz was on the phone saying to Trump, “I was happy to do it for you. You just keep killing it.” Trump apparently called Gaetz from Hanoi to find out how the Michael Cohen testimony went.


Let’s break this down here. The knee jerk reaction is to take this as proof-positive that Matt Gaetz tweeted the threat to Michael Cohen per Donald Trump’s request. It absolutely follows logically, because this is utterly believable given the two characters involved.




But Gaetz is a huge fanboy of Roger Stone, who apparently could not refrain yesterday from texting a response to the media: “Mr. Cohen’s statement is not true.” This appears to be a direct violation of the gag order that Judge Amy Berman Jackson just imposed on Stone. It would not be above Roger Stone to use Gaetz to do his dirty work, thus sneaking around Judge Jackson’s ruling. Stone certainly could have told Gaetz what to tweet. Gaetz was also seen attending the Cohen testimony, even though he’s not on the committee. He could have attended at the request of Trump.




No matter what the story there is, Gaetz is now in a world of hurt, not only from the public censure that Nancy Pelosi has put upon him via on Twitter (and probably other more formal means we haven’t seen yet), but through various investigations being requested by Democrats. Gaetz also claims that he called Michael Cohen to apologize. Direct contact is another huge no-no when you are accused of witness intimidation.



We don’t know what’s going to happen to Matt Gaetz. He deserves to serve some jail time given the brazenness of his threat. But I think given everything that will soon be coming out on Trump, Gaetz’s ship will sink quickly without a whole lot of effort. He has stupidly lashed himself to the Trumptanic. Oh, and Gaetz’s deleted tweet has the Florida Bar investigating him for violating its rules for professionalism. Not enough lifeboats there either.
