"Donald Trump's personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, received a secret payment of at least $400,000 (£300,000) to fix talks between the Ukrainian president and President Trump, according to sources in Kiev close to those involved.
The payment was arranged by intermediaries acting for Ukraine's leader, Petro Poroshenko, the sources said, though Mr Cohen was not registered as a representative of Ukraine as required by US law.
Mr Cohen denies the allegation.
The meeting at the White House was last June. Shortly after the Ukrainian president returned home, his country's anti-corruption agency stopped its investigation into Trump's former campaign manager, Paul Manafort.
A high-ranking Ukrainian intelligence officer in Mr Poroshenko's administration described what happened before the visit to the White House.
Mr Cohen was brought in, he said, because Ukraine's registered lobbyists and embassy in Washington DC could get Mr Poroshenko little more than a brief photo-op with Mr Trump. Mr Poroshenko needed something that could be portrayed as "talks”.”*

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)
I hate to do a "well actually" to Ana, but actually Ukraine could need some coal because it's coal producing region is caught in the middle of a bloody conflict between it's military and Russian backed separatists.
Right-wingers are NOT elected to serve the people.
I really wish these people had a fundamental education in governments and civics. Rightwing policies, by definition, don't help the people and don't have the people in mind.
In order for a policy to be classified as a rightwing policy, it MUST support and stabilize authoritarian/totalitarian systems of government NOT democracies.
They are elected to concentrate wealth and power in the hands of the rulers while disenfranchising and dispossessing the masses. That's what rightwing policies do.
In order to have a democracy and keep it, idiots, you are supposed to fight against rightwing policies and for leftist policies. That's elementary level education.
Ukraine Got missiles out of the deal so they can protect itself against Russia. Trump was withholding the missiles so that he could bend them to his will to get them to drop that investigation against manafort.
How do you square the inability to INDICT (supposedly) the President with the Statute of Limitations on some crimes?
What if they find MONEY LAUNDERING crimes but need to process before 2020? Are they forced to just throw up their hands and let him off?
Keep wet dreaming TYT. This shit is like watching professional wrestling. The left and right are always accusing each other of corruption, yet nobody ever gets arrested. Strange. You'd think people would catch on and realize this is just one big divide and conquer game just like during Obama's years as president. News flash! Basically all career politicians are corrupt.
There are 2 and only 2 English language pronunciations of the letter "i", which is a vowel... there is the long "i" as in the words "kite", "flight", wright, pipe, light etc... *OR* the "short" vowel sound of "i" as in the words shit, clit, and tit... THERE IS *NEVER* AN INSTANCE WHERE THE LETTER "I" IS PRONOUNCED AS A LONG "E"... SO MANY FOLKS MISPRONOUNCE THE WORD "ILLEGAL" AS "EELEGAL" AGAIN.... *THERE IS NO INSTANCE OF CORRECT PRONUNCIATION FOR THE LETTER "I" TO SOUND LIKE A LONG "E" !!!!*
I cant believe this fat ass orange traitor is telling NFL players they should be kicked out of the country for kneeling. I think everyone who hates Drumph should kneel anytime the Anthem plays. He is a disgrace to every single thing that flag stands for.
How did you guys miss the major stories that the Trump administration decided to sell the Ukraine anti-tank weapons? The story was in the NY Times, Washington Post etc. Even Popular Mechanics ran a story about the weapons a few weeks ago.
When you're doing commentary on the political situation of another country, be careful to talk to experts and do serious research, as propaganda is often at play and you shouldn't want to spread that to your viewers.
No, Russia has not stopped at Crimea, in terms of land they're trying to seize. They've been "quietly" waging a war against Ukraine which has killed a minimum of 10,000 people as of Nov 2017 and more than 23,500 have been injured (couldn't find the updated numbers). Russia has engaged in propaganda, terrorism, kidnapping, murder, torture, and bribes to try to get the west to believe it's an internal conflict of separatists vs Ukraine, when in reality Russia put those "separatists" into power by shelling and shooting civilians, giving those "separatists" money and never-ending weapons and other supplies, and using propaganda to cover-up and confuse the locals. They want as much of Ukraine as they can get, which is why they keep whining about Nato placement near their border. It wouldn't be a concern unless they're planning to continue their strikes / increase them, and worry about the retaliation Nato will deliver. Russia has stopped at nothing to try to get what they want in Ukraine, which is control over the politicians like they used to have, and some of Ukraine's land, especially keeping Crimea (it was a beautiful tourist destination before Russia annexed it). Russia even shot down a plane, MH17, with a rocket while they were engaging in this "quiet war" in Eastern Ukraine, and subsequently tried to use the 298 people who were murdered when the plane was shot by their rocket, as propoganda, saying it was Ukraine despite the satellite evidence, the pictures, the witnesses, the physical evidence, (logic), the soldiers who launched the rocket (Russian), the type of weapon used (only used by the Russian army), the clear motive, all pointing to Russia.
No, Ukraine needs coal as Russia's crimes in Eastern Urkaine include raiding coal mines and flooding the mines when they're done with them, so they're inaccessible (the majority of Ukraine's coal was coming from Donbas-area).
If you'd consulted with a few people who have been paying attention to the events in Ukraine since approx. 2013, they would have told you that Ukraine has struggled to get the power they need for their population at an affordable rate because of Russia's looting. I love some of the coverage you guys do but please - if you're worried about fascism and the threat that democracy faces, you need to be careful about how you report on other countries. Ukraine is doing what it can to survive Russian aggression and propoganda. I wouldn't be surprised if this story came from a "source" that was bribed by Russia. I wouldn't trust it until investigations are completed. Russia has done similar things before.
Earnestly scratching my head about this: If Trump's business dealings are so shady, how did he not know that if he became president there would be a spotlight on him? A. He's just that stupid. B. He confuses the office of the President with Ruler of the United States, and so above any and all transgressions. C. He never thought he'd be president, and after the election this would go away, and he'd get rich off of how the election improved his reputation? D. Somewhere in the campaign the idea of winning clouded his judgement.
The hold truth come out about the russian hacking scandel and the down fall of American, Trump and kids and wife her parent and all of peoples connection to russian hacking scandel and include our American company too, the American peoples will kill their peoples on the spot when they see them. They could never live in American again.
i freakin' love all the Cenk-isms that exist... i.e. "OF COOUURRRRSSSEE!!!" and when he goes "tick tick tick tiiiiiiick, tick tick tick tiiiiiiiiiick" to demonstrate that it is only a matter of time before Mueller closes in on trump.
Come on man... ADS in the middle of Videos.... come on TYT....when listening to you guys in the morning i love to turn you guys on while i am getting ready for the day, then, one of the ADS come up, super loud and obnoxious waking up the rest of the family...... so now, for peace in the valley, i can not watch you guys with the sound up....... come on man... ADS in the middle of vids is so wrong
don the con, conned a lot of foolish fool's to believe his Lies ongoing. He was handed over the president votes from outdated corrupt Electroral Collage voter's on a gold platter. ABOLISH ELECTROAL COLLEGE VOTE SYSTEM FOREVER.
Donald Trump reversed President Obama's policy of only giving non-lethal military aid to Ukraine's military in it's ongoing standoff with Russian separatists with embedded Russian troops. The US has already shipped lots of military equipment to the government of Ukraine since President Trump got into office. That is what Poroshenko got out of the meeting. Remember, in addition to the Crimean annexation, two other Ukranian provinces have been in an open state of military rebellion.
judith ferraris No I think Trump's shady dealings will be worse...& who gives a toss about the Clintons now anyway, that's old news, they are not in power anymore, move on...Trump is your president so his shady dealings are far more important than the Clintons'...
Cenk knows even less about the Ukraine than he does about Russia, or the crimea for that matter. I know he's a busy guy but he needs to start accepting that this is more complicated than, 'Putin bad', which is the level of commentary we've had from him and about half of the TYT audience for the last year. Before anyone replies to my post try watching one of the many documentaries available online, from reputable journalists, about the rise of institutional fascism in the ukraine.
The word Fake really doesn't have a meaning anymore. It's like the word Deluxe.
If you sit down and watch fake news while eating a deluxe cheeseburger, youre just watching news and eating a cheeseburger.
If a statue of the Chief Trumpanzee is erected it should be placed in a spot favoured by NYC pigeons as a place to leave their used food waste. If that's not possible, it should go into a public unleashed dog park. If they asked me to recommend a design, I would suggest it be a prone figure of the CT with its mouth open. That design would help the dog owners by having a depository for the dog turds they now have to carry from the dog park.
