Maar dat terzijde, ik ben van alles aan het lezen over het vijfde amendement en de gevolgen die dat mag hebben in een civiele zaak zijn me echt nog onduidelijk.
Is Cohen's positie in de civiele zaak tegen Daniels nou verslechterd omdat hij het vijfde amendement inroept in een semi-gerelateerd strafrechtelijk onderzoek? Of juist niet? En in welke zaak zwijgt Cohen nou, of in beide?
Het vijfde amendement gaat alleen maar over strafrecht, met civiele zaken heeft het niets te maken. Wat wel mogelijk is, is een civiele zaak aanhouden omdat een gelijklopende strafrechtelijke zaak er anders onder zou lijden.quote:

Ik heb het nieuws gemist dat Kelly heeft gezegd dat Trump de oorzaak is van de lekken.quote:Trump asked source to go on TV to call on him to fire Robert Mueller
That President Donald Trump has been running his own parallel communications shop inside the White House probably won't come as much of a surprise. A source told CBS News on Thursday that Mr. Trump called on Wednesday and asked the source to go on television -- to call for Mr. Trump to fire special counsel Robert Mueller.
Meanwhile, on Thursday afternoon, the president tweeted a message that took a more subdued tone than that of his cable news spinning allies: "I have agreed with the historically cooperative, disciplined approach that we have engaged in with Robert Mueller (Unlike the Clintons!). I have full confidence in Ty Cobb, my Special Counsel, and have been fully advised throughout each phase of this process."
The president has been known to spend what's marked on his schedule as his "executive time" watching Fox News, tweeting, and calling friends and outsiders for advice, independent of his White House communications team — and often against the advice of senior White House advisers.
Axios reported earlier in March that White House chief of staff John Kelly told reporters in an off the record briefing that Mr. Trump was likely leaking internal personnel drama to people outside of the White House, who in turn leak to reporters.
Earlier this week, after the homes and office of his personal attorney, Michael Cohen, were raided by the Justice Department, the president went on a tear to reporters during a meeting with senior military leadership, calling the situation "a total witch hunt," "a disgrace," and "an attack on our country."
When asked why he hadn't yet fired Mueller, the president responded that he'd "see what happens."
Dat lees ik, ja. Maar ik kan er verder niets over vinden, er is geen nieuwsmedium dat dit heeft overgenomen (voor zover ik weet). Zelfs het originele Axion-artikel kan ik niet vinden. Ik houd me warm aanbevolen, uiteraard.quote:

quote:Trump Lawyer Michael Cohen Negotiated $1.6 Million Settlement for Top Republican Fundraiser (WSJ)
The 2017 deal was on behalf of Elliott Broidy, a businessman who faced allegations he impregnated a former Playboy model, and resembles one Mr. Cohen arranged with Stormy Daniels
President Donald Trump’s personal lawyer negotiated a deal in late 2017 to pay $1.6 million to a former Playboy model who said she was impregnated by a top Republican fundraiser, according to people familiar with the matter.
Michael Cohen, whose office, home and hotel room were raided by federal agents this week, arranged the payments to the woman on behalf of Elliott Broidy, a deputy finance chairman of the Republican National Committee with ties to Mr. Trump, the people familiar with the matter said. Mr. Broidy, a Los Angeles-based venture capitalist, works on the Republican committee with Mr. Cohen, who is also a national deputy finance chairman.
The deal, which hasn’t previously been reported, prohibits the Los Angeles woman from disclosing her alleged relationship with Mr. Broidy in exchange for $1.6 million to be paid to her over two years in quarterly installments, these people said. The first payment was due Dec. 1, according to one of the people.
“I acknowledge I had a consensual relationship with a Playboy Playmate,” Mr. Broidy said in a statement provided by a spokesman. “At the end of our relationship, this woman shared with me that she was pregnant. She alone decided that she did not want to continue with the pregnancy and I offered to help her financially during this difficult period.”

Mr. Cohen didn’t respond to requests for comment. A spokesman for the woman’s lawyer, Keith Davidson, said he couldn’t confirm or deny the existence of the agreement.SPOILERtwitter:

Whatever happened to Trump neckties? They’re over. So is most of Trump’s merchandising empire.quote:Op vrijdag 13 april 2018 19:21 schreef Whiskers2009 het volgende:

quote:Before he ran for office, Donald Trump made millions by selling his name to adorn other people’s products. There was Trump deodorant. Trump ties . Trump steaks. Trump underwear. Trump furniture. At one time, there was even a Trump-branded urine test.
Now, almost all of them are gone.
In 2015, Trump listed 19 companies that were paying him to produce or distribute Trump-branded consumer goods.
In recent weeks, only two said they are still selling Trump-branded goods. One is a Panamanian company selling Trump bed linens and home goods. The other is a Turkish company selling Trump furniture.
Of the rest, some Trump partners quit in reaction to campaign-trail rhetoric on immigrants and Muslims. Others said their licensing agreements had expired. Others said nothing beyond confirming that they’d stopped working with Trump. Their last Trump goods are now being sold off, often at a discount: One cologne is marked down from $42 to $9.99 for an ounce.
