Palmer Report: Donald Trump’s newly exposed checks to Michael Cohen reveal that something went terribly wrong

During his public testimony last week, Michael Cohen presented two reimbursement checks he received for his crimes. One was signed by Donald Trump, while the other was signed by Donald Trump Jr and Trump Organization CFO Allen Weisselberg. This stood out as potentially odd; why would the payment method change like that? Now more checks have been revealed, and suffice it to say that something went terribly wrong during the payment process.




Several of the reimbursement checks sent to Michael Cohen have now been obtained by the New York Times, and they reveal a clear pattern. The checks were initially being cut by the Trump Organization, which was consistent with the phony cover story that they were mere employee paychecks to Cohen. These were the checks were signed by Trump Jr and Weisselberg. Then partway through, Cohen started receiving checks signed by Donald Trump, from what appear to be his personal bank account.




This means that at some point during the repayment process, the Trump Organization decided to stop cutting these checks to Michael Cohen, forcing Donald Trump to start paying Cohen directly. Trump certainly wouldn’t have wanted to do it this way, as it was more work for him, and more legal exposure for him. This almost certainly means that someone in the Trump Organization refused to keep participating in the criminal payments.



The only known adult in the Trump Organization is Allen Weisselberg, so the most logical conclusion is that partway through the payments, Weisselberg concluded that they were all going to get busted for it, and he tried to put a stop to it. Considering that this occurred in late 2017, you have to wonder just how long Weisselberg has been cooperating with prosecutors. Looks like this whole thing went terribly wrong for Trump a long time ago.

Palmer Report: Donald Trump’s sinking ship just hit an iceberg

Spread the Knowledge
  •  
  •  
  •  
  •  

The already sinking and broke-in-two Trumptanic just crashed into another couple of icebergs on the way to the bottom. Tom Barrack, Trump inaugural chairman, has decided to cooperate with the House Judiciary Committee and fork over the requested documents, according to CNBC. This is significant.


Barrack is part of the billionaire real estate bunch. His dealings with Trump have resulted in Trump buying from him a stake in Alexander’s Department Store and the Plaza Hotel, both of which Trump lost. He’s also got his fingers in the Jared Kushner sinking ship of 666 Fifth Avenue. The one thing to know about Barrack is that he’s been around the block. He’s worked in government before and seems to have made his own money legitimately. It is doubtful he suffers fools unless he wants to. In Michael Wolff’s book, FIRE AND FURY, Barrack allegedly describes Trump as, “not only crazy,” but, “stupid.” Barrack denies having said these these, but he’s taken no action against Wolff.




Robert Mueller already interviewed Tom Barrack a year ago. So Barrack already knows the gist of the investigation. He’s not the kind of guy who’s willing to do time to protect Trump. And by all accounts, he keeps his books clean.




Barrack seems to hang with the Saudis enough to know how to keep himself just on the side of legal activity (moral activity will have to be discussed at another time). But the big gauge of Barrack’s future behavior centers on Paul Manafort. Barrack has been friends with Manafort since the 70s, and he reportedly recommended Manafort for the job of campaign manager. So Tom Barrack has got to be scared out of his mind.



Tom Barrack knows he can’t pull a fast one. He knows he can’t lie. And he knows he can’t refuse to cooperate. He is jumping to stay out of prison, and, deliciously, his only question to any investigation, is, “how high?” The other iceberg is the investigation into the insurance broker for the Trump Organization. That’s gonna leave a mark, not just on Trump, but his kids. As we’ve said before, the Trumptanic is going down and now isn’t the time for Trump’s people to whine on Twitter. No, folks, now is the time to hire every lawyer you can afford, cooperate, and beg for mercy.

Palmer Report: Eric Trump waves the white flag

Spread the Knowledge
  •  
  •  
  •  
  •  


Donald Trump wanted to win the 2016 election so badly, he treasonously conspired with Vladimir Putin in order to rig the election in his favor. Trump’s theft of the presidency has resulted in most of his henchmen and friends being on their way to prison, his kids being targeted for criminal prosecution, and his entire real estate crime syndicate in danger of being exposed and dismantled.




It turns out the “dumbest” member of the Trump family is the first one to figure out that it was all a mistake, or at least he’s the first to publicly admit it. That’s right, Eric Trump is the most prescient one of the bunch. He appeared on Fox & Friends and he was asked if it was “worth it” for the Trump “family dynamics be put on this type of pressure” (translation: everyone in the family in danger of going to prison). Eric coughed up an interesting answer.




Eric Trump said this response to whether “winning” the presidency was worth it: “Have I thought it in my mind? Have I said it casually at dinner with my wife? A hundred percent … I mean, this was a billionaire who gave up an unbelievable life to go get punched on the chin every single day, to get abused, and quite frankly, as a family we’ve done that as well.”



In other words, Eric Trump clearly does not think any of this was worth it. That’s remarkable when you consider that he might be the least likely to end up in prison of any Trump family member, if only because Donald Trump thought Eric was too stupid to be trusted with the adult crime stuff. The rest of the Trump family is going to end up being far more regretful than Eric Trump sounds right now.

Palmer Report: Ivanka Trump flagged as security risk by Donald Trump’s own White House

Spread the Knowledge
  •  
  •  
  •  
  •  


Earlier today, Donald Trump announced that he’ll refuse to honor the House Oversight Committee’s request for documents relating to Jared Kushner’s security clearance. At the time, Palmer Report said that Trump had just unwittingly taken the bait, because he was opening the door for it to become a much bigger scandal that would get a lot more media attention. But even we didn’t see something this big coming this soon: it turns out it’s all about Ivanka.




Donald Trump also pressured former top White House officials John Kelly and Don McGahn to grant Ivanka Trump a security clearance, after they recommended against giving her such a clearance, according to new reporting from CNN. This means that, by definition, Kelly and McGahn thought Ivanka was some kind of security risk to the United States. No, really.




So now we know that the Jared Kushner security clearance scandal is also an Ivanka Trump security clearance scandal. No wonder Donald Trump is trying to fight so hard against the details of this scandal surfacing. It’s not just that Trump improperly ordered that Jared and Ivanka be given security clearances. It’s that there are unknown specific reasons why Kelly and McGahn thought Jared and Ivanka were security risks. If investigators get their way, we’re going to find out precisely what those reasons were.



The kicker is that even if Donald Trump’s White House illegally ran the John Kelly and Don McGahn memos through a shredder a long time ago, it’s nearly a given that Kelly and McGahn still have copies of their own memos. They’re both widely reported to already be cooperating with Robert Mueller. The House Judiciary Committee just asked them both to turn over all relevant documents. Our guess is this Ivanka-Jared security risk scandal is going to surface very soon.

Palmer Report: The Ivanka Trump document request saga takes an even stranger turn

Spread the Knowledge
  •  
  •  
  •  
  •  

When the House Judiciary Committee requested documents from eighty-one Trump related people and entities yesterday, one name stood out conspicuously by its absence: Ivanka Trump. After all, her husband Jared Kushner, and her siblings Donald Trump Jr and Eric Trump, were both on the list. Now the Ivanka story has taken a rather strange – and confusing – turn.

When House Judiciary Committee staffers were asked yesterday specifically about Ivanka Trump’s absence from the list, they simply responded that more names were coming “soon.” So we know that the committee does plan to include Ivanka, just not quite yet. Then House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler confirmed last night that all of the requests sent yesterday are for documents that have already been requested by Robert Mueller or prosecutors. Apparently the committee has decided to do a massive catch-up operation first, before deciding what new evidence to seek out.


But if Ivanka Trump wasn’t included in Monday’s document requests, and those requests were all about obtaining all of the documents that prosecutors have already sought out, then by definition, that would mean Mueller hasn’t yet sought any documents from Ivanka. This is really strange, considering that the inclusion of Don Jr, Eric, and Kushner yesterday means that Mueller has requested documents from all of them. So what’s going on here?




There are only a few hypothetical possibilities here, and each seems stranger than the last. The first would be that Robert Mueller is not even bothering to investigate Ivanka Trump, even though he’s investigating so many other Trump family members. This is possible, but it would fly in the face of previous reporting that Mueller is probing the Trump Soho real estate deal, which has long been a suspected money laundering front, and previous reporting that Ivanka helped take the lead on the Trump Soho deal.




Is it really possible that Robert Mueller isn’t bothering to investigate Ivanka Trump? Even if Mueller has determined that she is innocent, how could he know that without at least asking for her relevant documents first? There is a second potential explanation, which would be that Mueller hasn’t bothered to interact with Ivanka because she’s the primary target in all of this, as prosecutors sometimes build cases against the kingpin based entirely on evidence provided by other people. But all of the available evidence points to Donald Trump Jr, and not Ivanka, having played a key role in the Trump-Russia election scandal. There is no known evidence that Ivanka is the kingpin of this scandal.



There is yet another hypothetical possibility, but it might be the strangest one of all: Ivanka Trump secretly cut a plea deal with Robert Mueller against her entire family a long time ago, and that’s why he never had to send her a document request. Does that make sense to anyone? Really, none of these explanations make any instinctive sense. But there has to be some reason Mueller hasn’t asked Ivanka for documents, even while hitting up her husband, her brothers, and her father. In any case, the House Judiciary Committee is indicating that it plans to include her eventually, so take it all for whatever it’s worth.

Palmer Report: Rudy Giuliani circles the drain

Spread the Knowledge
  •  
  •  
  •  
  •  

My first and only personal encounter with Rudy Giuliani was at the Staten Island start of the 1997 New York City Marathon. Rudy gave a speech. I don’t recall much about the speech – I was nervously contemplating what would turn out to be four hours and seventeen minutes of private discomfort – but I do recall bits of it. He congratulated us on our coming tour of the five boroughs of that wonderful city. He received a respectful smattering of applause at the end of it, together with a bit of good-natured jeering – there were many New Yorkers among us, after all.


For my part I had a grudging respect for the man. He was a Republican, true, but he had been significant, if not instrumental, in transforming a city I loved from an unsafe one to one of the safest, for its size, in the world. His finest hour, in the aftermath of September 11, was yet to come.




I can only imagine what reception that same speech would garner Rudy today. A wall of hate. A cacophony of rage. New Yorkers have never held back about voicing their disdain, and Rudy Giuliani is now justly disdained by the world.




Now the probability is that he’s being investigated by the Southern District of New York for offering Michael Cohen a justice-obstructing presidential pardon in exchange for refusing to testify to Congress. That’s the very district for which Rudy was once United States Attorney. Back in that era Rudy was a man to respect. While Donald Trump was busy being what he always was, a clown, a punchline, a rube, Rudy’s was a name that carried a discernible weight and gravitas.



Unfortunately for many, telling a lie and getting away with it is the same as telling the truth, committing a crime and getting away with it is the same as being law abiding. The overriding miscalculation of many people crowded around Donald Trump was that they could lie, commit crimes and get away with it. Rudy Giuliani’s miscalculation was trusting and believing in Donald Trump. And for that he’s traded, not a great name, but certainly a good one, for a name that has earned him a place on the ash heap of history. A name that will never be mourned save by the disgruntled ignorant, the moral leprechauns, the people who, let’s face it, ultimately amount to nothing and contribute less.
