Dressed in a pastel pink knee-length skirt and suit jacket, Daniels was whisked from a car into the courthouse on Pearl Street through a sea of photographers, who knocked over a metal barricade in the chaotic crush.
Daniels showed up to court with her lawyer, Michael Avenatti, who ducked in and out of court an hour earlier. She turned heads as she entered the courtroom and took a seat in the galley.
Cohen is set to face a federal judge who ordered the lawyer to turn over a list of his clients and answer questions about his practice.
Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, is suing Cohen for defamation and claimed the nondisclosure agreement she signed is invalid because Trump never signed it.
President Donald Trump reacted to the news that the Democrats had decided to sue his presidential campaign for an illegal conspiracy with the Russians to win the 2016 election.“Just heard the Campaign was sued by the Obstructionist Democrats,” Trump wrote on Twitter. “This can be good news in that we will now counter[sue] for the DNC Server that they refused to give to the FBI.”
Despite the DNC claim that their emails were hacked by the Russians, they never turned over their server to the FBI for investigation.
“During the 2016 presidential campaign, Russia launched an all-out assault on our democracy, and it found a willing and active partner in Donald Trump’s campaign,” DNC chairman Tom Perez said in a statement announcing the lawsuit.

The incredible mess that the FBI finds itself in following its illegal meddling in last year’s presidential election and its outcome isn’t going away anytime soon.
But, it is likely to result in some pretty big names being put behind bars.
In a discussion with Fox News’ Sean Hannity, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich called the spying on President Trump and the cover-up of Hillary Clinton’s wrongdoing one of the worst breaches of our justice system ever.
“This is undermining our system of justice, it’s violating the law and it’s very likely all these people will end up going to jail,” said Gingrich.
“I think it’s maybe the greatest crisis, in terms of law & order and the rule of law in American history,” he continued.
President Donald Trump is skipping this year’s White House Correspondents’ Association dinner — and where he’s going instead speaks volumes about his character.
According to Breitbart, Trump will host a campaign-style rally in Washington, Michigan, for his supporters rather than rub shoulders with the liberal media at the event.
Here’s what Trump’s re-election campaign COO Michael Glassner said in an email to supporters about the rally:
“While the fake news media will be celebrating themselves with the denizens of Washington society in the swamp that evening, President Trump will be in a completely different Washington, celebrating our national economic revival with patriotic Americans.”
This is the second year in a row that Trump has skipped the event in favor of holding a rally with the American people.
This is the second year in a row that Trump has skipped the event in favor of holding a rally with the American people.
Rather than spend the night in the D.C. swamp, the president is going to speak with the American people about his agenda and how to continue improving the country.
There has been a lot of speculation about whether Trump would attend this year, but he made it pretty clear recently in an interview with New York radio hosts Bernie and Sid that he can’t stand being around the media:
“I sort of feel that the press is so bad, it’s so fake, it’s so made up. I call them novelists, they make up the sources, in some cases there are sources, but then they won’t do it correctly either but in many cases, they literally make up sources.”
The event is scheduled for April 28, and some members of Trump’s administration may attend.
Here’s how social media users reacted to the news:
POTUS to hold rally in Washington on the same night as the WH Correspondents Dinner. Washington, Michigan, that is. Matter of optics via split-screen. Tuxedos & wine with journalists at the DC Hilton on left, Trump w/blue-collar folks in the rust belt on right. Did same in 2017.
Former Mayor of New York and accomplished former prosecutor, Rudolph W. Giuliani, told The Washington Post on Thursday that he has joined the president’s legal team dealing with the ongoing special counsel probe. Giuliani has been a longtime friend and ally of President Trump.
Giuliani spoke in an interview, “I’m doing it because I hope we can negotiate an end to this for the good of the country and because I have high regard for the president and for Bob Mueller.”
Trump attorney Jay Sekulow announced Thursday that Giuliani is joining the team along with a couple other former federal prosecutors, Jane Serene Raskin and Marty Raskin. They currently run a Florida-based law firm together.
Trump said in a statement “Rudy is great! He has been my friend for a long time and wants to get this matter quickly resolved for the good of the country.”
Trump’s legal team has fought to recruit new members after multiple law firms turned the job down. Many citing various conflicts of interest in defending the President. Giuliani said he has been speaking with Trump for weeks about joining the group of legal advisers, notably having a half hour meeting with the president at Mar-a-Lago this week.
Giuliani spoke out against the idea that Trump ever intended to fire Mueller. He claimed the President never indicated he was considering such a move — knowing it to be “counterproductive.” Removing Mueller would further prolong the investigation, adding that “Bob is the best we can do”.
Trump supporters immediately praised the decision on Twitter:
Rudy Giuliani joining the #Trump legal team is another big #Win
Word has it that Rudy Giuliani is in talks to join President Donald Trump’s personal legal team. Now this would be major. Giuliani is one of the toughest men on this planet. He takes no sh*t and has balls of steel.
Hell yea America’s Mayor Rudy Giuliani is joining President @realDonaldTrump’s legal defense team. Let’s see the politically motivated FBI try to unconstitutionally raid or attack him. Not going to end well for Mueller and co if they do. #MAGA
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi is moving on from her “crumbs” catchphrase when describing the GOP tax cuts law.
During her weekly news conference on Thursday, the California Democrat unveiled a new phrase for the tax cuts: “BS.”
As noted by The Daily Caller, Pelosi spent much of her presser absolutely railing against the “tax scam,” vowing that Democrats will repeal the tax cut law if they retake the House of Representatives in the midterm elections this year.
“The Republicans were saying ‘oh it will pay for itself,’ we know that it doesn’t, just ask Bruce Bartlett, anyone who says that these tax cuts pay for themselves — it’s not true, it’s nonsense, and it’s BS,” she said.
Pelosi has railed against the GOP tax cuts for months, referring to pay raises and bonuses as “crumbs.”
Here’s what she said in January:
“There’s a little mouse trap who’s got a little piece of cheese on there and there’s a mouse about to take it and that’s called the middle class.”
“And around it are fat cats, they look a lot like elephants but anyway, around there. And that’s the thing. Get this little thing and we get this big bonanza. You get the crumb, we get the banquet.”
Pelosi has made it clear Democrats won’t work to improve the tax law, but outright repeal it, which would mean millions of Americans can’t keep more of they money they earned.
Since Trump took office, the markets are hitting historic highs, millions of new jobs have been created, and unemployment is at an all-time low.
And the GOP tax cuts are allowing roughly 90 percent of Americans tokeep more of their hard-earned money. But Pelosi thinks that is “BS” and something she is determined to overturn.
Chozick covered the Clinton campaign from the beginning, giving her book some unique insights and perspectives into the campaign that would fall hard and without grace.
Hillary is alleged to have made multiple melancholy remarks in regards to her faith in the campaign’s success, and they’re all really cringy…
Here are a few:
According to the book, Hillary declared. “You know, I am getting pretty tired of hearing about how nobody likes me.”
“‘Oh, what’s the point? They’re never going to like me.”
Recounting the evening Hillary’s infamous ‘deplorables’ shtick went public, Clinton told aides, “I really messed up.”
Chozick writes, “Robby, drained and deflated, watching the results with his team in a room down the hall from Hillary’s suite, labored into the hallway of the Peninsula to break the news. Hillary didn’t seem all that surprised. ‘I knew it. I knew this would happen to me….’ Hillary said, now within a couple of inches of his face. ‘They were never going to let me be president.’”
Another interesting note Chozick brings up is Hillary’s furious reaction to the prospect of a Joe Biden Presidential run.
She writes that “Biden had confided (off the record) to the White House press corps that he wanted to run, but he added something like ‘You guys don’t understand these people. The Clintons will try to destroy me.’”
Boy, did Biden dodge a bullet there! (No pun intended)
Do you think Hillary knew she had lost early on? Your thoughts below!
First Lady Melania Trump went solo to Barbara Bush’s funeral today as President Donald Trump had other items timely of business to attend to. She showed sheer grace and respect by going alone knowing that she would be in the company of her husband’s biggest detractors, including Hillary Clinton and Barack and Michelle Obama. Melania was placed in the very front row, seated right next to Barack Obama, who was sandwiched on the pew between her and Michelle.
Melania is genuinely kind and always respectful, even when under pressure. She’s never shown even the slightest disrespect to anyone, despite the constant attacks she endures. When she could have given Barack a cold shoulder, like his wife gave her at the infamous Inauguration Day gift-giving moment, Melania was pure class. However, many people on the Internet didn’t see it that way and reacted with rage.
It’s also of note that Bill and Hillary Clinton were just a couple people down the pew from her. That had to have been awkward but definitely didn’t seem to bother Melania one bit. She was all smiles. This day was about Barbara Bush, not her differences with others in attendance. It’s also not unusual for sitting presidents to skip funerals of former first ladies.
“Then-President Obama didn’t attend the funerals of Republican first ladies Nancy Reagan and Betty Ford, while former President George W. Bush did not attend memorial services for Democratic first lady Lady Bird Johnson,” according to E! Online. So the heavy criticism of Trump for not attending needs to be put to rest.
Judging by Barack and Melania’s mannerisms in what’s now become a controversial clip, it was clear that the two were comfortable and spoke casually with each other, enjoyed a few laughs throughout the entire interaction that could have been awkward, but wasn’t. This incident caught on camera should have been praised as a show of what true diplomatic behavior looks like, one that everyone on both sides of the aisle should have learned from.
Instead, the impressive moment was used for more divisive rhetoric and salacious allegations against our first lady – namely that she’s much happier around Barack than she is around her own husband.
This is a very small sampling of what the Internet had to offer of the comedic claims that she’s somehow feeling a sense of relief with Barack during her break for the day from her husband. This was the twisted meaning created to make the president look bad and further discount his marriage to Melania when what the camera really caught was the real lesson to be learned.
I’m not so caught up in partisanism that I won’t recognize a good thing from the other side when I see it. Barack was also gracious to Melania as she was with him.
It was a really great sight to see that much of the country should recognize rather than making it into something salacious that it is not. This simple and brief interaction proved that you can accept differences in others and set animosity aside to accomplish bigger things. You’d think that this would prove that having class is a good thing, but instead, it proved how classless others can be who refuse to be any other way.
Let’s not forget that the camera catches what the photographer wants others to see. So, perhaps the real question is, why are pictures of Melania with Donald always of her looking off when she could have been smiling seconds before the snap but they didn’t catch that? Surely there are pictures of Melania listening intently to the funeral service while sitting next to Barack with a similar somber look on his face – afterall, they’re at a funeral. It’s a good thing that these too were pleasantly corgial with each other, so why make it bad?
We are now getting reports that a student, whose name is, Grace Lewis was enrolled in a class offered by Polk State College in the state of Florida. Lewis is known for being a very good student and often holding a 3.9 G.P.A. Which is why she is taking college classes while still in high school.
But sadly because after decades of letting the communists slowly take over our school system that achievement was been greatly diminished when she got four zero grades. And why you might ask did she get such poor grades? It wasn’t because she was out partying with the rest of the college slobs majoring in gender studies or some other expensive useless degree. It was because she held to her faith in the existence of God.
Yup, Lewis got failing grades from a militant atheist professor because she refused to deny the existence of God.
Something awful is taking place in America today. During most of U.S. history, if someone was clearly of another faith, basic curiosity may have led to questions being asked, but no one cared. What is happening in these post-modern times is that people who worship God in any way are being mistreated, talked down to, and are even seeing their First Amendment rights come under fire, as Faith Reel revealed today.
A student named Grace Lewis was enrolled in “a class offered by Polk State College, in Florida.” Lewis is known for being a very good student, often holding a 3.9 G.P.A. She is, after all, taking college classes while still in high school. That achievement was diminished greatly when she got four zero grades because she held to her faith in the existence of God.
Failing grades were given to Lewis simply because she refused to deny what she knew to be true when questioned. This militant atheist demanded she drop his class and worked tirelessly to convert students.
“The questions were pointed and the teacher did not seem to allow honest rebuttals. For example, “Why did Christianity, and it’s male God’s, seek to silence these women?” What women?
Also, it was stated as fact that “…Christianity is one of the most violent forms of religion the world have ever seen.”
The first question may be pertaining to how the first century did not allow female teachers in the churches. Since first-century women could not read, this command made sense, a fact purposefully ignored by the teacher.
As for the supposed violent nature of the Christian faith, if the teacher used the recent bombings to say that Islam was the most violent religion of modern times, the outrage would have never ceased.”
The 16-year-old student has now contacted a lawyer and is fighting back. Matthew Staver, who is her attorney is also the founder of “Christian and Liberty Council.” They were contacted by the family of Lewis after she got no less than four zero marks for not denying God. In a statement, Staver confirmed that Russum is a militant atheist who is demanding that others become one also by the method of indoctrination.
The student participated in an assignment to keep a journal and to have it read. The teacher read that this pupil believed in God, pulled her aside, and told her that she needed to drop his class. Reports have confirmed this isn’t the first time a student has been punished with a low grade or made to drop the class because of not letting the teacher indoctrinate them out of believing God.
The dean of the college was contacted by Staver, but he has so far refused to make the situation right. In a statement Polk told Fox News that “this accusation is baseless, without merit, and completely lacking factual support,” according to the college president, Eileen Holden.
Here is more on this saga:
“While the four zeros were not addressed (which is part of the reason for the legal fight), after the girl contacted an attorney, her grades suddenly improved.
“Dropping the class would have been good for me, but not good the students coming behind me,” the Christian student said when asked why she remained enrolled. She does not feel that students should be afraid to believe in God while attending college courses or any other classes.
“This is not what education should be,” she added.
Her lawyer has said that he wants them to go back, review the grades, and to deal with this “militant atheist” teacher who on his emails said that Adolph Hitler was not violent enough. While he is free to hold such views, Staver accurately argues that he is not free to make everyone else accept them.
The Fox host observed as the video closes that to get four zero’s in today’s college structure is almost unheard of, a nuance that is quite telling.
Polk College now will have to address why such outlandish views are held and forced on students. Also, thanks to Ms. Lewis, they will have to do so before the next batch of students suffers as she did.”
It will be interesting to see how this all plays out. It might lead to a turning point in our nation’s failed education system and that teachers are allowed to do and not do in their classes.
