Donald Trump Rips New York Times Reporter, Denies Michael Cohen Will 'Flip'

Trump accuses NYT reporter of trying 'to destroy Michael Cohen' so he'll talk to the feds

The Russia Investigations: Comey At Imbroglio's Center But Does He Bring Clarity?

Maggie Haberman has gotten under President Trump's skin again.

Mr. Trump on Saturday called Haberman a "third-rate reporter", saying she and the publication are going "out of their way to destroy Michael Cohen and his relationship with me in the hope that he will 'flip.'" Mr. Trump accused Haberman and other New York Times reporters of making up sources, and speaking to a "drunk/drugged up loser who hates Michael".

"Michael is a businessman for his own account/lawyer who I have always liked & respected", Trump continued. "Sorry, I don't see Michael doing that despite the terrible Witch Hunt and the dishonest media!".

The story in question details the typically respectful manner in which Trump has treated Cohen over the years: "with gratuitous insults, dismissive statements and, at least twice, threats of being fired, according to interviews with a half-dozen people familiar with their relationship".

James Comey's Memos Going Public Reveal That President Trump Is On One
The dispute between McCabe and Comey pits the former deputy director against the ex-boss who handpicked him for the job. In one previously undisclosed exchange, Mr Trump told Mr Comey that Mr Flynn "has serious judgment issues".

Also, in a since-corrected tweet, the president appeared to confuse former Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz with Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Wendy Wasserstein, who died in 2006.

In the past, Cohen told Vanity Fair that "I'm the guy who would take a bullet for the president", adding, "I'd never walk away". Some of the documents seized from him reportedly relate to a payment of United States dollars 130,000 that Cohen admits making to the porn star Stormy Daniels, who claims she had a one-night stand with Trump a decade ago.

Haberman, who won a Pullitzer Prize just last week, was actually at the White House a few times in 2017 for sitdowns with Trump.

Trump is facing numerous legal challenges in addition to the Mueller probe-from allegations women were paid money to stay quiet about affairs with him, to challenges over his family businesses.

Hockey Loving Newlyweds Head To Winnipeg Jets Party After Wedding
The original Winnipeg Jets - now the Arizona Coyotes - only won two playoff series, beating the Calgary Flames in 1985 and 1987. The Wild played for the second game in a row without left winger Zach Parise , who suffered a broken sternum in Game 3.

Asked whether the president himself was anxious, the staffer added that "He's anxious about attorney client privilege" and said Cohen had likely acted as more of an informal adviser than a lawyer.

The FBI raided Cohen's home, office and hotel room this month.

The post included a link to the story and a screenshot of Trump's first tweet with the misspelling.

Several days after the raid, the Justice Department announced that Cohen has been "under criminal investigation" for months in NY because of his business dealings.

Jaitley: Congress taking revenge for unfavourable ruling in Loya case
Mr Jaitley said, charges leveled by the opposition are those issues which have been settled by judicial orders or by precedent. The Congress , however, downplayed it saying the party did not want to involve its senior leaders in the issue.

Avenatti predicted the president would show up to court, but argued that it might not matter since he thinks Cohen will end up telling the court everything he knows about the president.
