Trump Lambastes Times, Reporter for Cohen 'Flip' Claims

Stormy Daniels' Lawyer Says He Thinks There Are

Things began when Trump attacked New York TimesWhite House correspondent Maggie Haberman. The Friday article quotes longtime Trump confidant Roger Stone and Sam Nunberg, a former Trump aide who has worked with Cohen and Stone, along with Trump biographers Tim O'Brien and Michael D'Antonio, and OH pastor Darrell Scott. On Monday, Hannity addressed the issue on his show, arguing that, while he has had legal conversations with Cohen, he has never been represented by Cohen in any legal matter and has never "retained" him in the traditional sense.

It is unclear who the President was describing as "a drunk/drugged up loser" who hates Cohen.

The FBI raided Cohen's home, office and hotel room this month. Haberman tweeted that Trump would not be in attendance because the Bush family did not want him there.

Prosecutors have said they're investigating Mr Cohen's personal business dealings but haven't said what crime they believe he may have committed.

"Here's the story that seems to have touched a nerve".

The Times reports that Trump and Cohen have spoken little since the raid, although the president did call Cohen four days after the raid, and that the attorney feels isolated following the raid.

Saturday's tweets weren't the president's first angry dispatches of the weekend. First lady Melania Trump is also expected to be in attendance.

Her Times colleague, Michael S. Schmidt, undercut Trump's claim on Twitter, posting a photo of Haberman standing with the president in the Oval Office; in it, Trump, smiling ear-to-ear, is giving his signature thumbs-up. "The highest elected official in the United States shouldn't be using his platform to go after individual reporters or to promote conspiracy theories about reporters inventing sources".

At the beginning of the year, the president announced his "Fake News Awards", which the Republican National Committee ultimately published.

Earlier, he tweeted about James Comey and the revelation that the Department of Justice's internal watchdog is examining whether he leaked classified information by sharing details of memos he wrote while he was the Federal Bureau of Investigation director with friends and with the media. John McCain, R-Arizona, wrote an op-ed in The Washington Post in January claiming Mr. Trump's charges of "fake news" just because he doesn't like or agree with coverage about him is causing a negative ripple effect across the globe. "This has provided cover for repressive regimes to follow suit".
