Michael Cohen: 'It Is Fake News Meant to Malign Mr. Trump'

Quote:Cohen said that during the time the report places him in Prague, he was actually with his son visiting USC and meeting with the baseball coach. A USC baseball source confirmed Tuesday night that Cohen and his son had visited USC on August 29th. Cohen said that he was in Los Angeles from the 23rd through the 29th of August, and that the rest of the month he was in New York. He said that his only trip to an EU country over the summer had been a vacation to Italy in July.

Marine Le Pen at Trump Tower: Only for the food?

PARIS — Marine Le Pen, the leader of France’s far-right National Front and a contender in the country’s upcoming presidential election, was seen at Trump Tower in Manhattan on Thursday.

The details of Le Pen’s visit were not immediately. According to a media pool report, she declined to say whether she would meet with Donald Trump while she was there. (...)

Maybe she does like steaks?

RE: Trump the Disrupter
Quote:Some on the left want Democrats to move on from Russian hacking

On Thursday night, after Senate Democrats attended their latest briefing on the potential role of Russian hackers in sabotaging Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign, Fox News host Tucker Carlson reintroduced viewers to an unlikely guest. Glenn Greenwald, a founder of the Intercept, was back on the show to condemn liberals for “more or less openly calling for and cheering for the intervention of the CIA” in U.S. politics.

“[Democrats] are hoping that this unelected faction in Washington will undermine and subvert and destroy the legitimacy of Donald Trump’s presidency,” said Greenwald. “The media has been aligned against Trump and will side with anybody who wants to subvert him, including the CIA.”

Greenwald, while not a liberal, had built a large following as a critic of George W. Bush. He shares a Pulitzer Prize for stories about Edward Snowden’s NSA leaks. Consistently, he has reported and written skeptically about America’s security state and foreign policy adventures. And this month, that was putting him in the unusual position of defending President-elect Donald Trump from accusations that Russians had put him into office.

Among veterans of Clinton’s campaign team, and among Democrats in Congress, nothing is less controversial than the investigations of Russian ties to Trump. But on the broader left, there’s a roiling debate about why Democrats are talking so much about this. Doing so, they believe, at best distracts from the need to change the party — and at worst aligns the party with shady “deep state” actors.

RE: Trump the Disrupter
Quote:The Real Reason Any Russian Meddling Is an Emergency

...

This is one of the key topics of George Washington’s 1796 Farewell Address, the most famous political rhetoric in American history until the Gettysburg Address. “Against the insidious wiles of foreign influence,” Washington warned, “the jealousy of a free people ought to be constantly awake, since history and experience prove that foreign influence is one of the most baneful foes of republican government.”

Washington was particularly concerned by the “common and continual mischiefs of the spirit of party” – that is, loyalty to your own faction within the country above the country overall. This, he said, “opens the door to foreign influence and corruption, which finds a facilitated access to the government itself through the channels of party passions” and allows other countries to “practice the arts of seduction, to mislead public opinion, to influence or awe the public councils.”

Trump and the GOP are now busy proving how prescient Washington was. Trump has not endorsed an independent investigation of any Russian actions aimed at the election, nor released the financial information that would clarify any business relationships he has with Russians or Russian banks. Moreover, he can’t even bring himself to pretend in public that any of it matters much (although it’s hard to tell whether this is because he fears we’ll find out something nefarious he did or simply because his ego can’t bear his victory being thrown into doubt). Of all of Trump’s violations of basic democratic norms, his indifference to this most basic principle of self-government is the most shocking of all.

RE: Trump the Disrupter
Why don't they apply the same standards to Saudi Arabian or Mexican interference in the elections? I know: it's because their party lost.

How ironic that they decided to quote Washington on the "common and continual mischiefs of the spirit of party" to make their case here.
