“It’s hard to impeach somebody who hasn’t done anything wrong and who’s created the greatest economy in the history of our country,” Trump told Reuters As special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation moves along and a new Democratic majority gets ready to take over the House of Representatives in January, the word “impeachment” often comes up in political conservations. Democratic Rep. Jerry Nadler, incoming chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, has asserted that if Michael Cohen (confessed felon and Trump’s former personal attorney) made hush money payments to adult film star Stormy Daniels and Playboy model Karen McDougal on direct orders from Trump in 2016, it would be an “impeachable offense.” Trump, however, has denied having extramarital affairs with either Daniels or McDougal and maintained that Cohen was acting independently—not on orders from him—if he made any hush money payments two years ago. And when Reuters reporters asked t...

Republicans can't stop themselves from attacking her. Congresswoman-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) has been a frequent target of right-wing tirades, but she has shown that she does not let the attacks diminish her stature. In fact, she seems to capitalize on the vitriol, using the disproportionate attention she receives from Republicans as a platform to promote her views and her own political stardom.The most recent attack against her came from one of President Donald Trump's most prominent media trolls, Kellyanne Conway.On Tuesday, Conway lashed out at Ocasio-Cortez and called her a “29-year-old congresswoman who doesn’t seem to know much about anything.” This broadside came in response to the incoming representative's demand for outgoing White House Chief of Staff John Kelly to apologize to Rep. Frederica Wilson (D-FL), whom he once egregiously and falsely insulted on behalf of Trump.Ocasio-Cortez said Kelly demonstrated "cowardice."“For her to even use a s...

AMI further admitted that its principal purpose in making the payment was to suppress the woman’s story so as to prevent it from influencing the election,” the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York...

It looks even worse for Trump than it initially appeared. Michael Cohen, President Donald Trump's former personal attorney and the ex-deputy finance chair of the Republican National Committee, was sentenced to three years in jail on Wednesday as a part of the most significant chapter yet in the federal investigations encircling the president. And the undeniable intensity of the sentence was only one of the damning facts for the president revealed in the outcome of Cohen's sentencing. The prosecutors from the Southern District of New York have already said that Trump directed Cohen to carry out criminal violations of campaign finance law — and the case directly against the president appears to only be getting stronger.Here are five other details that emerged from the sentencing that should be devastating for Trump:1.

“OK, but I don’t care. All I can say is he’s doing a good job as president.” During a December 11 appearance on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” Never Trump Republican Steve Schmidt stressed to co-host Mika Brzezinski that as the GOP’s power shrinks in early 2019—when Democrats will have a 40-seat majority in the House of Representatives—Republican devotion to President Donald Trump will only intensify. And sure enough, many prominent Republicans have been unwavering in their devotion to Trump. Some Senate Republicans are parting company with the Trump Administration over U.S. relations with Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman and the death of journalist Jamal Khashoggi, but on the whole, the GOP remains adamantly pro-Trump—especially when it comes to Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Russiagate investigation. In most GOP circles, the party line continues to be that Mueller is simply grasping at straws and wasting taxpayers’ dollars. And some prominent Republic...

Cohen thought he could salvage his reputation and win leniency in court by helping prosecutors on the special counsel’s team investigating Russian election interference. Cohen’s sharp language critical of the president -- saying he hid Trump’s “dirty deeds” -- came as dual investigations continue in Washington and New York into Russian election interference and campaign finance violations. Cohen pleaded guilty without a cooperation deal with prosecutors.

Wednesday, Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-CA) weighed in on Michael Cohen’s hush money payments to women for President Donald Trump, calling Trump a “lying,” “weak president” for acknowledging payments now that he denied earlier in the year. “[T]he people actually have already revolted. They revolted about a month ago when they sent 40 new members of Congress to put a balance of power on all of these abuses of power. But also let’s go back to April 5 when the president was aboard Air Force One and said he had no knowledge of any of these payments. And so now here we are, he’s acknowledging the payments,” said in an appearance on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.” He continued, “Look, he is a lying president, and a lying president is a weak president, and I don’t think we should hang our hats on these payoffs to Stormy Daniels and others, but I think they show that he is a shadowy operator and it’s probably more important to look at how...

Michael Cohen issued a stinging rebuke of his former boss Donald Trump on Wednesday as he was sentenced to three years in prison, insisting it had been his job to cover up Mr Trump’s “dirty deeds”.  Cohen, who served as Mr Trump’s lawyer and fixer for a decade, likened his sentencing to a moment of “freedom” as he would no longer be bound by his relationship to his former employer. The sentence hearing followed Cohen pleading guilty earlier this year to four crimes: tax evasion, lying to a financial institution, lying to Congress and breaking campaign finance laws.  The last of those involved paying two women who claimed affairs with Mr Trump – porn star Stormy Daniels and former Playboy model Karen McDougal – to stay quiet before the 2016 presidential election. Cohen has claimed in court that Mr Trump directed the payments - something the US president has denied. Mr Trump has also suggested such payments would not amount to crimes. Michael Cohen served as Donald Trum...

“All too many Republicans are going from opposing the Democratic Party to opposing democracy itself." Max Boot was a leading proponent of neoconservative ideology in the 2000s and early to mid-2010s, often praising President George W. Bush and heavily criticizing President Barack Obama. But these days, the Washington Post columnist is an outspoken Never Trump conservative—and in his latest Post column, Boot argues that his former party, the GOP, has become frighteningly “authoritarian.”Reflecting on Republican power grabs in the state legislatures in Michigan and Wisconsin, Boot notes that Republicans “are moving to strip important powers from incoming Democratic governors” in those states. Boot quotes Robin Vos, Republican speaker of Wisconsin’s state assembly, as asserting that “if you took Madison and Milwaukee out of the state election formula, we would have a clear majority.” Boot’s analysis: Vos “is thus suggesting that liberals and people of col...
