  • BREAKING: Judge Rules Against Cohen Over Avenatti Filing; He’s Out Of Options

    Donald Trump, News, Politics

    Team Trump is having an awful, no good, terrible day. First, a judge ruled that Donald Trump’s former campaign manager Paul Manafort has to go to jail (lock him up!) and his $10 million bail was revoked. And the only positive side to this for Manafort is that he won’t have to wear his two ankle monitors once he’s behind bars. Then, another judge rejected Trump’s longtime former personal attorney Michael Cohen’s request for an emergency gag order against adult film star Stormy Daniels’ lawyer, Michael Avenatti.

    On Thursday, Cohen filed a request for a restraining order in a Los Angeles federal court and argued that Avenatti’s frequent media appearances and public comments about the high profile case could undermine his ability to get a fair trial due to the ‘media circus’ but that was shot down on Friday.

    “Mr. Avenatti’s publicity tour, wherein he routinely denigrates Mr. Cohen with claims of alleged criminal conduct, is contrary to the California Rules of Professional Conduct, likely to result in Mr. Cohen being deprived of his right to a fair trial, and threatens to turn what should be a solemn Federal Court proceeding into a media circus,” Cohen’s filing read.

    Avenatti said that the motion for a gag order was “unethical” and “a complete joke” and apparently, the judge agreed.

    Reuters reported today that a judge has refused to grant Cohen’s request.

    And it gets worse.

    To make matters worse for former reality show star Donald Trump, Cohen has been telling family and friends that he’s willing to cooperate with federal investigators to alleviate the pressure on himself and his family.

    Cohen is feeling isolated and is angry with the treatment he has gotten from Trump, who has distanced himself from Cohen, and he’s also upset with recent comments from Trump’s attorney Rudy Giuliani.

    Cohen has told friends recently that he expects to get arrested any day now. Earlier this week, MSNBC’s Katy Tur reported that her sources confirmed the report that Cohen expects to be arrested soon. A source close to Cohen, according to Tur, said that “his lawyers got a call from lawyers at the Southern District of New York saying they were preparing paperwork.”

    To be sure, Cohen knows where the bodies are buried and Trump should be extremely worried. Cohen has to have heard that Manafort is going to jail. The 69-year-old former campaign chair could very well die in prison and all because he wouldn’t cooperate. Tick tock, Mr. Cohen.

    Here’s an idea: Maybe don’t do treason-y things and you won’t have to go to jail. Meanwhile, Avenaughty is sitting back somewhere with a smile on his face.

    Conover makes tea partiers cry as a hobby. She was Commander of Jade Helm15 during the failed takeover of the South. She's also one of the biggest arseholes on Twitter. At night, she can be found drinking Conservative tears while pulling off the wings of flies just because she can. She is the founder of a Marxist, Commie, Maoist, Socialist site and has contributed to several other sites, blah blah blah. She is an awful person but she doesn't like to brag about that.
