Feds’ Latest Filings Suggest Potentially Big Problems for President Trump

President Trump

The drama involving President Donald Trump and Robert S. Mueller III went up a notch on Friday when federal prosecutors filed new court papers directly implicating the president. The papers allege that Trump was involved in plans to buy women’s silence as far back as 2014, and offered new evidence of Russian efforts to forge a political alliance with Trump before he became president, the Washington Post reports.

The separate filings came from Mueller and federal prosecutors in New York. Trump’s former lawyer Michael Cohen is set to be sentenced Wednesday.

The Post goes on to write:

Taken together, the documents suggest that the president’s legal woes are far from over and reveal a previously unreported contact from a Russian to Trump’s inner circle during the campaign. But the documents do not answer the central question at the heart of Mueller’s work — whether the president or those around him conspired with the Kremlin.

Comic Kathy Griffin Says Secret Service and U.S. Attorney’s Office Came After Her With A Vengeance After Her Prank Photo Involving Trump

You might recall in 2017 that comic Kathy Griffin caused a major stir when she posed for a photo with her wearing a navy pussy-bow blouse and holding a bloodied imitation of President  Donald Trump’s decapitated head.

On Friday, she appeared on the Late Show With Stephen Colbert and talked about the fallout, which was substantial.

She tells Colbert that the Secret Service and U.S. Attorney’s Office opened a two-month investigation into a “conspiracy to assassinate the president of the United States.”

She also said she was put on a no-fly list for two months and an Interpol list, which resulted in her being detained in every foreign airport she was in while doing her worldwide tour, “Laugh Your Head Off.” She said she had to tour overseas because she could no longer get a job in the U.S.

She also said she got threats from Trump supporters and lost her New Year’s Eve job on CNN with co-host Anderson Cooper, who condemned the photo.

“The walls caved in on me,” she said, explaining she can’t get work in the U.S. She said she also lost a lot of friends.
