“The paparazzi lingering outside the Loews Regency on Park Avenue, hoping to get a photo of U.F.C. fighter Conor McGregor, appeared not to notice the stream of F.B.I. agents that entered the New York hotel early Monday morning, as they made their way up to the room where the president’s personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, has been staying. A handful of them remained upstairs for several hours, according to a source familiar with the situation. “Today the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York executed a series of search warrants and seized the privileged communications between my client, Michael Cohen, and his clients,” Cohen’s attorney, Stephen Ryan, said in a statement. “I have been advised by federal prosecutors that the New York action is, in part, a referral by the Office of Special Counsel, Robert Mueller.”
Downstairs, hotel jazz blared on speakers, as women with Louis Vuitton totes and men in Gucci loafers and gold-button blazers checked in and out, while kids in Yeezys and fur-trimmed puffer coats chased each other around the lobby. A woman who looked awfully like Caroline Kennedy made a quick pass through the restaurant, and hotel security seemed to arrange a way for a guest, perhaps McGregor, to make an exit through a side door without being spotted.
The cheery hotel scene belied what has become a growing legal headache for Cohen, as Mueller’s Russia probe has expanded to include inquiries into the Trump Organization’s business records and foreign dealings, including in Russia. Last week, McClatchy reported that the special counsel’s investigators showed up with subpoenas to the home of an associate of the Trump Organization, compelling sworn testimony and electronic records. The report indicated that investigators were interesting in interactions involving Cohen.”

Young Turk (n), 1. Young progressive or insurgent member of an institution, movement, or political party. 2. A young person who rebels against authority or societal expectations.(American Heritage Dictionary)
The government doesn't like the peoples choice for president. They are on a by any means necessary mission to oust him. This should disturb everybody. All kinds of people don't care and are even cheering this on because Trump was not their choice anyway. But they should care because it could happen to their choice for president some day. What they are doing, if Bernie had gotten elected they would be doing this to him.
I said... The government doesn't like the peoples choice for president. So the _media_ is not my point.
"To your main point, presidents and politicians have always been attacked or smeared by media..."
The electoral college is for a reason. There are a few states that are so populated that they sway an election big time. The electoral college is so the other 47 states have some say in government.
NELSON X it may be veering away from your main point but you specifically used the phrase “people’s choice” most rational people agree the popular vote is representative of the people’s choice? That’s all that was being argued....In a real democracy like where I live the popular vote always wins.
To your main point, presidents and politicians have always been attacked or smeared by media whether justified or not so I don’t know what you’re even getting at? However Trump is in a league of his own and justifies all the criticism he gets...I can objectively say that your current president has brought the majority of shit on himself. Plus he’s been treated more than fair by the media, if Obama ran his first term the exact same way Trump has so far, you’d be losing your mind right now 😂
Who is president? Why is he president? The electoral college has a purpose and it voted according to how the people voted. Trump was elected president, FACT! My narrative here is more anti deep state than pro Trump. If Bernie was elected they would be doing this shit to him.
she's talking about Trump cheating?! that was a second career for ol' bill! but, democrats and liberals would say that its ok, make excuses, or flat out deny, when its one of their own. and, in billy boy's case, there's enough evidence to have a bonfire! you young *TWITS* are pathetic.
p.s regarding the "witch hunt" . The Republicans are the ones who got the warrant from a Republican judge who wouldn't be able to sign it if there weren't significant probable cause, That whole process was Republicans from the start. and done legally. It wasn't a raid. Pay attention to what Republican officials are saying and doing. Don't blame liberals or dems for all that, which is ongoing at this time. Republicans in Congress aren't liking what Trump is doing
Bill Clinton suffered public humiliation, to the point of the dress of Monica being tested for dna from his sperm, and got impeached No one wanted to just let it go. It was news day after day like is happening now to Trump. As a liberal, I just want to save the earth and have clean water and air and I support such organizations. Trump is selling out our national parks for mining, about to reverse the protections of the California coastline, and things like that.
Young Turks are just closeminded ass wipes. The economy and stockmarkets are through the roof. Even lazy people have jobs. Yeah, he probably screwed that hooker and he probably should have said, "yeah, I hit it" but I don't see anything that's going to hurt him in the long run. I know that hurts lowlifes like the 2 on this video but I'm sure they'll survive. Put on your big girl panties and deal with it.
Actually, your video is crap, much not most of your videos. Likewise, your opinions stink, much like most assholes.
You are a President Trump's hating asshole and you are blinded by your hate.
To stay on point, if it was a liberal judge from which the warrant was requested, it would be granted. We have already seen that in the case of the FISA warrants.
If it had been an honorable judge, the rule of law and attorney/client privilege would have been respected.
So give your thumb a rest and go suck that lemon for awhile.
The "left" keep attacking Trump from the right by saying he should be more hawkish - Trump is on the record saying the US should be out of Syria, and after getting his balls put in a vice (including this raid) he got his head right. Congratulations. Even Bernie Sanders said he was saying some things that were right.
Pfft even when a conservative judge signs a warrant, he is not "honorable". It's people like that allow strongmen to corrupt democracies and turn them into dictatorships like Turkey, Philippines, Hungary, Poland and etc.
James Waller - a lot of things you see n YouTube is crap. I go by the what trump does and says.
You trump supporters keep blaming the left wing about the investigation on Trump. The special prosecutor is a Republican that was appointed by Republicans and who has the support of the Republicans. So it is not a democratic witchhunt.
Trump is just freaking out because the crap is finally hitting the fan. And before you get your panties in a wad, I am not a liberal or a Democrat. I am just anti-Trump because he is a crazy dangerous man.
Listen to his interviews and his speeches and you will see how deranged he is.
They get warrants of seizure of assets and possessions, even with no proof, it happens everyday, constantly, even when people win, law enforcement gets to keep everything in most instances. I'm not for any politician, and I don't know the circumstances of this, but I wanted to clarify the whole they can't get a groundless warrant thing. - Kuranoshin
Trump has forced the Democrats to expose themselves as warhawks, because he has historically been anti-intervention. Even the supposed "left" media said he only became "presidential" when he started launching missiles. What do you think they'll do if they ever get real dirt on Trump? They'll either get rid of him, or steer him into a Syrian conflict that endangers the entire world because it puts the US in a direct military conflict with Russia. Even Bernie Sanders has said Trump has said some correct things regarding trade, intervention etc...
If women received hush money, they should hush and not say anything. The president and his lawyers, etc. should be immune to raids from the FBI. The FBI should work for the president and not against him. The president got elected by the people of the USA. They want Trump to be president and implement the plans he got elected for.
Adarsh as far as your solutions go there isn't one I disagree with. Getting rid of the 2 party system is a must have as well. Legislation to downgrade the amount of control corporations assert by limiting their growth. Are you saying the dems at this time favor large corporations to the exclusion of smaller companies? I don't know any democrats who would agree with that. But I will fully admit I'm not an expert in that area. I don't always disagree with Republicans anymore than I always agree with Democrats. I am worried about the education system and perhaps you have a point about Russian trolls. I would need to see a little more proof of that but certainly willing to consider.
He is nothing but a whiney little orange asshole who is more worried about his business issues rather than working on the Country. He is an asshole because he cheated on his pregnant wife and you think this is a bad thing for our Country. Impeach him now. Go vote this November and get back control of both the House and Senate.
Because dip shit donnie refuses to pay his lawyers bill, he is exempt from the privilege. I hope Mueller squeezes Cohen like a lemon until he dies on his sword like a stupidly loyal lapdog or he spills everything he’s got on him. 🤣
All the while during the debate he brought a woman that Bill Clinton cheated with as he was doing the exact same things. See a pattern here? Everything he finds wrong in others he has done the same thing but 10 times worse.
OK, so your news viewing habits have helped you dodge the Democrat, MSNBC, CNN etc... drumbeat for war, but surely you could search what prominent Democrats are saying - even Howard Dean who once ran as a peace candidate is screaming for war. I'm sure Tucker Carlson speaks garbage most of the time, but as Caitlyn Johnstone says, when we agree with certain people on the right we should acknowledge that... he's against this bipartisan war chant (or was until he was pressured into it AGAIN). If Trump is an asshole, but his instincts are anti-war, you'll have to give me a better argument to automatically be against anything he says. Even Obama turned two wars into seven after he got comfy in the seat... and Hillary cackling at Gadafis death was disgusting. Trumps base is angry he looks like taking them to war - they want him to Build That Wall... Are you really saying Hillary wouldn't have been more eager to into Syria if she had got in? Personally I'd rather he take up brick laying than get the US into a hot war with Russia.
Mark P first off NO ONE I watch on the news goads him into war soooo don't know what you're speaking on there. Second the last time I saw Tucker the other night he was spewing total bull$$$$ about how pandas are sex crazed, so you'll have to forgive me if I don't run right over to Fox for some "edge of my seat" reporting ( when America is going to hell on the bullet train, I kinda want to stay on topic ). You know what Mark, what will you tell yourself after the boom drops on this total prick (and hopefully before he totally starts WW3). You come across as intelligent....pull off your blinders and look at our president....he s"""s on people constantly, he is a pig, he doesn't give s*** one for loyalty, integrity, or even common decency!! Is defending HIM really the hill you want to die on?
You're worried about his missile finger, and yet the Democrats are saying he's weak on Syria for not wanting to attack, and when he is pressured into a missile strike the "fake left" media laud him as finally being "presidential". Have you seen Fox News lately? Look up "Tucker Carlson Syria" (last few days). The right wing are the only ones talking sense right now re war (WTF??!!). I'm beginning to think Trump Derangement Syndrome is a real thing. People attacked Caitlyn Johnstone for saying the real left should cooperate with the right if/when they're actually right about something, and she was howled down. Trump has been right about Syria forever, and Bernie Sanders even praised him for saying certain correct things about economics during the campaign. Are the Dems and other fake leftists so desperate to be correct about Trump being unredeemable that they want to push him into conflict with Russia?
Lmao I can hear Tomi Laren now trying to defend this using all kinds of contradictory points she tried to use with blacks and how law enforcement are just “doing their job” and how we should just abide by the law if you don’t like It! I can’t wait!!! 😂😂
Home, home on Deranged, Where the Dirt and the Nincumpoop play, Where seldom is heard even one truthful word, And the reporters interview Stormy all day. Oh give Donald some rope, He’ll hang himself like a dope. Then Mr. Putin won’t know what to say. And Republican base, what’s that look on your face? Was this worth a dumb statement on Race?
Wouldn’t it be great if they discovered that Trump really was practicing witchcraft and they burned him at the stake in front of the Washington Monument? Congress could wear hoods. I mean different hoods.
How did America sink as low as this? This is disgraceful. They better never criticize Obama again, none of this amazing crap happened to him in eight years. He was a normal human being, he wasn’t Colonel Queeg in the Caine Mutiny.
how pathetic and predictable. little girl. he needs to say "to your point" to make her not feel lonely. fukn pathetic kids they think theyre clever and that theyre any different from the ppl they call child. touchy feely little girl. fukn grow up.
Clearly Trump doesn’t care for the values of the United States and its Constitution. He uses defiling terms such as ‘breaking in’ just to paint the authorities as the bad guys just so he can escape justice from the people. It’s all he cares about, how many people are watching him be an asshole, but instead of being an ass on TV he’s being an ass on the world stage! AS THE MOST POWERFUL MAN IN THE WORLD!
If you're really a "history nut" then you'll know Nixon had to resign for something similar ie. unlawfully investigating political enemies. Mueller has said Trump isn't even under criminal investigation, and even if he was the FBI had no right to desecrate attorney-client privelege. I wonder if it's a concidence that Trump is going into Syria now after having consistently said he's against it, or if they have his balls in a vice. Oh well, at least he exposed the Democrats and "left" media as the warhawks they are. (Trump only became "presidential" after he started launching missiles?! Ha!!!) I'm no Trump fan, but I can recognise when my own side is betraying me.
"Russia, if you're listening, I hope you will be able to find the 30000 emails that are missing." Why would Trump say this? Its because he colluded with Russia and can't keep his mouth shut. This is in line with his behavior and raging toward any slight development in Mueller's case, especially with his threats of firing him. Mueller is simply exposing the depths of collusion to convince stubborn people who have a herd mentality. In fact, he may already have most of the data needed to impeach him. One day, Trump will leave office disgraced, as the full brunt of his sexual assaults and undisclosed affairs (stormy daniels, kate mcdougal, and perhaps many more); money laundering schemes with Russia, the Middle East, and other countries; and the shocking scale of collusion with Russia in a mass advertising scheme (Cambridge Analytica) and leaks (Wikileaks) invoking Trump, Manafort, Roger Stone, Derispaka, Sergei Pridhoko, Sergei Lavrov, Sergey Kisylak, and countless other oligarchs and middlemen. Strange thing is, poetic justice will be served as the women that he wronged will rise against him, the ones society ignores, in the form of pornstars and sex workers such as Stormy Daniels and Nastya Rykba. It will be a satisfying day indeed.
WTF?! Trump Derangement Syndrome is a real thing. I'm a LEFTIE and I know Trump is too incompetent to be as successfully evil as the Democrats. Juanita Brodderick was RAPED by Bill, and publically attacked and shamed by Hillary. How does cheating with a porn star even compare? The whole Trump/Russia thing was cooked up by a Hillary think-tank during the campaign... this was in the leaks (don't give me that Russia hack BS) when they polled voters and found out that the Russian Uranium One scandal was what they responded most negatively to. Noones talking about all the Bernie issues (inequality, immigration reform, health care etc... all stuff Clinton was against BTW), and we're being steered into another war (it's forgotten people sometimes voted against Clinton because she was more hawkish). And Trump had his attorney-client privelege desecrated! Civil rights are eroded first with the unpopular, and then it's visited on the rest of us.
He threw Cohen under the bus, and that's how Mueller got him. When Trump claimed he knew nothing about the NDA with Stormy they were able to secure the warrant against Cohen. Cohen can't offer a legal agreement without his client's knowledge or approval.
You gon be on the front line with all of the lil crybaby bitches when Trump wins again in 2020. HA!
Aww, it's ok, puss puss. You can whimper and whinge like a petulant little child till your heart's content. It's a free country..HAHA!!
LOL deranged? This is an extremely rare occurrence in politics. To raid a law office is almost unprecedented.
If the warrant is released and its not rock solid, everyone is getting canned and maybe worse.
i don't care. this has nothing to do with collusion. you don't just get to investigate someone without probable cause in the first place and indict him because you find evidence for another crime. this is not a standard anyone would accept.
I love how nuclear families, monogamy and all that crap suddenly mean something to these people when it's useful for propaganda purposes, and the rest of the time they're promoting a level of degeneracy that would make the Marquis de Sade blush. But I will say Trump should have owned the Stormy thing instead of denying it, we all knew he was the mac daddy and none of us cared any more than we care what the lying liberal media ever has to say about him. All the clumsy denials and non-disclosure agreements did was give his enemies an opening to strike. It doesn't help that he listened to Kushner and surrounded himself with liberals and RINOs either, more thoughtful personnel selection would have headed this off entirely.
The "Left"..once defensive and outspoken against intelligence agencies, corporate wars, and Big Business... Have whole-heartedly sold whatever souls they may still have right out to these entities. You were never truly against them, and in many ways, attacked most people who were, only because you wished to wield these weapons yourself. This also goes for gun control. There's nothing "liberating" going on here. You wage war with working class America.
Upon Reflection support Hillary Shmillary Trump is president now. Blaming democrats or the "left" is just playing into his games. I fall somewhere toward the middle of the political spectrum, as do most Americans. And most of us are sick of this crap.
Upon Reflection its easy... Police action and/or inaction, intelligence probing, surveillance, foreign influence of elections, corporate interest, suppression of free speech... are ALLLL well endorsed by these people in the event that it fits their worldview.
This is what my original comment entailed. It was never about stopping these elements, it was about gaining control. There is a reason that the Communist Internationalé and Neo-Cons run parallel and overlap.
A History Nut yeah but that's all just fine NOW because he has a BS shield...he is a Republican....hypocrisy at its finest! ( just imagine if a Democrat did in his whole term what Trump does on a typical frickin Tuesday, he would be strung up on the floor of congress before sunset!!)
Republicans love corporal punishment. Let those traitors have it. Same for the YT exec who allows propaganda channels like RT to post it's shit all over. Traitorous sons-of-bitches, every last one of them.
I've actually watched RT America, i've never actually seen any propaganda on it, only larry king, democracy now, a few other honest news outlets etc. And i think you meant capital punishment yes? The irony of capital punishment is that 90% of those in the active "pro-Life" movement, are also 'pro-capital-punishment' So, they are very conflicted people those pro lifers, who also love the idea of state killings.
LMAFO WOW For a piece of crap like Donald Tramp, He sure gets bothered by the FBI who investigating his shady prune ass over an selection involving Russia he and his demented sheep who blindly follow him claim he had nothing to do with.......LMAFO Or maybe the reason this prune Donald Tramp gets bent out of shape is because he has something to hide !!!
As Cenk talked about in the previous video where it was reported that the raid happened, Trump, as usual, made the situation worse by not being willing to admit that Cohen was acting on his behalf. Plus, all of this has to do with him choosing to run for president, him having an affair, people he brought into his campaign and administration potentially engaging what could be described as collusion. His ego and ignorance, boy...cause him more trouble than enough.
Here's a little inside dope, puss puss. Trump won't be convicted of anything, either. In fact, he's going to serve *two full terms.* You gon be tryna keep up with dat fo bout, hmm, 6 1/2 mo yerrs, bitch! HAHA!
I'll make Trump's defense for him. Understand I'm not the biggest trump supporter.
The FBI raided the office of a defense attorney. Think about the impact of this, the consequences, the misuse of power. A defense attorney's office was raided. It was raided. Would you want the Police to raid your defense attorney's office? You might have told him something, it be on file, and the Police comes in, grabs the file, and then misrepresents what you told your attorney.
The FBI raided a defense attorney's office. The FBI RAIDED, a defense attorney's office. We're setting a precedent with this that is dangerous. If they can do this to the president, what can they do to us? The breach of the constitutional rights of President Trump, and Attorney Client privilege for all US Citizens is at stake with this kind of behavior.
The FBI raided a defense attorney's office. That should be the only thing being talked about by the Young Turks. That's corruption.
@Chris Christenson - And one more thing, is that some kind of threat? I've been bothered by your likes before. They want me shut up. I won't shut up. I have a freedom of speech, I have the right to challenge my government with words---and in this case it's the private interests that run our government---and I have the right to a lot of other things that are signed law by the United States, that they breach every day.
Do you understand, friend, that I was concerned that the FBI randomly went in there looking for information, even with a warrant, for no other reason than that it was Trump's attorney? The facts are scurrilous in this investigation, anyway. It seems to be a media storm done for ratings, and I would suggest you support your president if you don't want Chinese and North Koreans marching down our street pointing automatic weapons at your family.
You understand that I'm for peace, at whatever the cost, even if to my freedom and my life. I know that it's a dangerous time we live in, and I'm afraid for your welfare as well as the country's. I had a conviction that was 3rd world in nature. I did something at 14, be it was taboo, but it was still when I was a minor, and I was convicted as an adult. I spent my time in jail, went through a humiliating probation, and now I'm a circus for the whole world to see, and I can't find employment. Do you understand that your country is going down the tubes? I had never committed a crime like it since I was fourteen, so there's no reason to have done the things they did. It was wrong. And you can take that to the bank that I don't regret telling anyone, because if anyone is in a position to challenge this nonsense, it's someone with nothing to lose, and has no dirty laundry.
@Chris Christenson - And you'd only know about it if I went to the police at 23, for what I did at 14. I've read my rights according to the signed law of the Geneva Accords. My conviction was not lawful according to the UN Resolution of the Human Rights Charter. That's a fact.
@The Schnauze - I was. You're right. Thank you for giving me the benefit of the doubt. Though, it should only be the case where the Lawyer committed a crime on behalf of the client. What that crime is, let the FBI decide. Though, they can't go in there for the Russia Probe; they can only look to see if Stormy Daniels was paid off, which, I'm not sure if that's even a crime, so again, you're walking into a corruption territory.
You do understand that I'm not entirely sure the Warrant was substantiated? I haven't the knowledge of the crime in the Stormy Daniels case. It doesn't seem to be discussed. It seems to be corruption. Bring me down for saying it. I'm not afraid of you.
@moonlily1 Trump is a corrupt capitalist POS, no question. But I'm sorry, anyone implying that the Russian investigation and it's indictments have any credibility is either being disingenuous or does not understand the situation. 13 twitter bots did not swing a multi-billion dollar election - a corrupt establishment democrat who cheated the primary, billions in free media for Trump, voter suppression and the electoral college did that juuust fine. The idea that Russia is responsible for our political disaster of a nation is laughable and insulting to reasonable people's intelligence.
d. drumpf has had some 4000 lawsuits! 1600 of those are people seeking payment from trump for work completed. Take the 5 largest CRE developers in Manhattan. And combined they have half of the lawsuits, over a longer timeline! drumpf calls everything not to his liking a "Witch-Hunt." He has done that for decades.
