CNN isn’t backing off their claim that Michael Cohen can prove Trump complicity with the Trump Tower meeting. This is despite the fact that Lanny Davis has recanted and backed off of the claim. We reported earlier after Davis’s under-reported interview with Anderson Cooper that he basically went back on every claim he had previously made.
Davis reiterated to the Washington Post that his own claims were bogus. But CNN is persisting in reporting that Cohen is ready to dish dirt on Trump. CNN seems to be going the Dan Rather route of “It’s not proven, but we believe it in our hearts”. Possible things Cohen might know about? There’s the Trump Tower meeting and potential interference through the DNC server hack, although Lanny Davis has now denied both. There’s also an old report from the UK Daily Mail back in May that Cohen demanded money from Qatar for Trump. But so far this seems to be tabloid gossip.
Lanny Davis says Cohen dirt oversold. CNN still buying it.
Democrats know impeachment is out of grasp and have stopped running on it. The economy is too good, and their evidence is too bad to actually think they could get 75 Senators to vote for impeachment. But Democrats are promising endless probes and investigations if they take control of the House. According to Bloomberg, Democrats have a long laundry list of taxpayer funded probes to hit Trump with in order to obstruct his agenda. Still, Trump has weathered investigations through the first two years of his Presidency while still accomplishing major agenda items. Voters will need to decide in November whether they want massive obstruction in the House or continued progress on the economy.
Democrats abandon impeachment, go for obstruction instead
Speaking of Trump accomplishments, stocks are through the roof again as the US and Mexico get closer to closing a new NAFTA deal. Trump blew up the old NAFTA deal in an effort to secure something better for the United States. He has accomplished this and North American trade is back on. The Mexico NAFTA agreement should also bring Canada back into the mix. This is a big victory for Trump’s foreign trade policy.
