  2. An odd fake story:

      What’s odd about it? The authorities in Kiev appeared to have information he was to be murdered and faked his assassination in order to bring those behind it out into the open.

      Referring to it as odd you give the impression you don’t think it is as said by the Ukrainian authorities.

    Federal prosecutors have revealed on Wednesday in the Cohen case that they will present to the court shredded documents that have been reassembled.

    Looks like the FBI raid on Cohen’s office (that trump repeatedly described as a disgrace and an attack on America) was both necessary and appropriate.

    And it looks like the guy who once said he’d take a bullet to protect the president might be about to get that bullet.

      And close on the heels of the revelation that the contents of Cohen’s shredder will be used by the prosecutors in court, comes another revelation about Mickey Medallions: Cohen taped his conversations with trump.

      It’s an odds-on bet that trump now wishes he’d let Stormy Daniels out of that non disclosure agreement when she first asked.

      Michael Avenatti on MSNBC:

      These tapes relate directly to the conduct of the president’s right-hand attorney… we have every reason to believe that the tapes include communications between Mr. Trump and Mr. Cohen that don’t have anything to do with the rendering of legal advice. So those are not privileged communications.

        Yeah, a simple strip-cut shredder. Nothing says ‘I have nothing to hide’, ‘It’s a witch hunt’, ‘I will be vindicated’, quite like a still smoking paper shredder.

          So not knowing he is going to be raided he somehow decides to shred incriminating documents?

          They are required to present all material taken in the raid to the judge for assessment as whether it is protected by client privilege. Therefore they have to do this for the shredder bin material whether it is relevant to their case or not. Odds are high that it is not. What a lot of nonsense.

        Normal offices shred then send to a paper recycler. Sounds more like a normal office doesn’t it?

    Aljaz tv currently reporting Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov has arrived in Pyonyang, had talks with NK officials, & just recently emerged to give a statement that Russia supports the current & forthcoming negotiations with the US but that denuclearising NK will take some time & that it can only realistically happen if sanctions are relaxed so NK is not bankrupted & impoverished. Reporter noted that it is not surprising to see Russia aligining itself with the position of China.

    Also reporting that Assad has just said US troops should leave Syria & that he is threatening to attack US-supported forces there (although the reporter noted it’s unlikely he would actually really do that).
