The NY Times ‘bombshell’ regarding Michael Cohen’s tape of him and Trump discussing Playboy model payment is ANOTHER BIG, FAT nothing burger

(National SentinelYawner: On Friday The New York Times published yet another leak from the disgustingly leaky Mueller investigation that it no doubt believed was going to be a scorcher — and maybe even the story that spells the beginning of the end of POTUS Donald Trump’s presidency.

The Times reported that former longtime Trump personal lawyer Michael Cohen taped a conversation he had with the then-presidential contender regarding a payment to Playboy model Karen McDougal, who has claimed a year-long affair with POTUS that allegedly began shortly after first lady Melania Trump gave birth to the couple’s son, Barron.

Oh, no! A tape?

The Times reported:

The F.B.I. seized the recording this year during a raid on Mr. Cohen’s office. The Justice Department is investigating Mr. Cohen’s involvement in paying women to tamp down embarrassing news stories about Mr. Trump ahead of the 2016 election. Prosecutors want to know whether that violated federal campaign finance laws, and any conversation with Mr. Trump about those payments would be of keen interest to them.

The recording’s existence further draws Mr. Trump into questions about tactics he and his associates used to keep aspects of his personal and business life a secret. And it highlights the potential legal and political danger that Mr. Cohen represents to Mr. Trump. Once the keeper of many of Mr. Trump’s secrets, Mr. Cohen is now seen as increasingly willing to consider cooperating with prosecutors.

The former model, Karen McDougal, says she began a nearly yearlong affair with Mr. Trump in 2006, shortly after Mr. Trump’s wife, Melania, gave birth to their son Barron. Ms. McDougal sold her story for $150,000 to The National Enquirer, which was supportive of Mr. Trump, during the final months of the presidential campaign, but the tabloid sat on the story, which kept it from becoming public. The practice, known as “catch and kill,” effectively silenced Ms. McDougal for the remainder of the campaign.

Well, that’s it, then. Trump’s toast! Cohen has all the goods.

He’s gonna spill the beans and it’ll be over, Rover, for the president.

Cue the ‘screeching halt’ soundtrack.

The Times went onto report this:

Rudolph W. Giuliani, Mr. Trump’s personal lawyer, confirmed in a telephone conversation on Friday that Mr. Trump had discussed payments to Ms. McDougal with Mr. Cohen on the tape. He said the recording was less than two minutes long and claimed that the president had done nothing wrong.


Mr. Giuliani said there was no indication on the tape that Mr. Trump knew before the conversation about the payment from the Enquirer’s parent company, American Media Inc., to Ms. McDougal.

“Nothing in that conversation suggests that he had any knowledge of it in advance,” Mr. Giuliani said.

Then this:

The men discussed a payment from Mr. Trump to Ms. McDougal — separate from the Enquirer payment — to buy her story and ensure her silence, Mr. Giuliani said. That payment was never made, Mr. Giuliani said, adding that Mr. Trump had told Mr. Cohen that if he were to make a payment related to the woman, to write a check rather than send cash, so it could be properly documented.

Now think about it: If you were trying to hide something, would you have your lawyer write a check “so it could be properly documented?”

Do you think it’s a coincidence that the Times put that important little nugget near the end of the story?

And another thing — why does the establishment press continue to believe that tawdry, unproven sex allegations are going to separate POTUS Trump and his supporters, when they haven’t yet?

Why The New York Times continues to allow itself to be prostituted out to the Deep State is anyone’s guess, but it’s obvious the paper’s management team enjoys it. If this qualifies for a Friday bombshell, we’ve got some oceanfront property in Montana to sell them.

2 Comments on The NY Times ‘bombshell’ regarding Michael Cohen’s tape of him and Trump discussing Playboy model payment is ANOTHER BIG, FAT nothing burger

  1. But……..But…….,
    Tapes and Sex and all that stuff worked so well in the past !!!
    If anyone is interested, look up “WILBUR MILLS & FANNY FOX”
    Mills ended up , while very drunk, crashing a car into a D.C. fountain one night; accompanied by “exotic dancer” one “FANNY FOX”.
    He was , if I remember correctly, Chairman of the House Ways & Means Committee- a really powerful guy.
    The point is, that scandals have become progressively boring, and ineffective.
    What does it say about us, as a nation, that we would even care about the sex life of an elected official, especially pre-service?
    Would we like similar scrutiny, how would we hold-up ?
    What my enquiring mind wants to know is what exactly is that Florida Congresswoman who wears the sequined cowboy hats is up to in her off-time, maybe with Mad Maxine ?

  2. We are not listening to the Left media anyway. They are part of the Deep State and want to bring down Trump by any means possible. Nothing they print or say will change our minds about trump. We will support him through thick and thin. We will not be moved. They hate him. It’s obvious. The Left media are like the children’s fable where a little shepherd boy kept screaming “wolf” and everyone ignored him because of his false alarms. As a result, a real wolf shows up and ate the sheep.

    The moral of the story is that liars always lose.
