COHEN:  THE TAXI KING FLIPS

Evgeny Friedman, the “Taxi King” and former business partner of Michael Cohen, decided to plead guilty to one count of tax evasion and receive 5 years probation and testify against Michael Cohen.  It was either that, or face up to 125 years in prison.

Evgeny Freidman, welcome to Cooperating Witnesses.

Don’t be surprised when it comes out that Trump knocked up the Playmate, not Broidy.

 

EPA ROUGHOUSING

The Environmental Protection Agency is barring The Associated Press, CNN and the environmental-focused news organization E&E from a national summit on harmful water contaminants.

The EPA blocked the news organizations from attending Tuesday’s Washington meeting, convened by EPA chief Scott Pruitt.

EPA spokesman Jahan Wilcox told the barred organizations they were not invited and there was no space for them, but gave no indication of why they specifically were barred.

Pruitt told about 200 people at the meeting that dealing with the contaminants is a “national priority.”

Guards barred an AP reporter from passing through a security checkpoint inside the building. When the reporter asked to speak to an EPA public-affairs person, the security guards grabbed the reporter by the shoulders and shoved her forcibly out of the EPA building.

RUMOR MILL

 

That’s it for today.  And yesterday.  I try to put a post together every night, but sometimes that’s not possible.

It’s easy to get lost in sadness, despair, and depression when it feels like everything if falling apart, but the men and women working in the background to bring these villains to justice.  America is a country of laws, not people, money, or personalities.

It feels like nothing’s happening, but Justice is like a zombie horde.  Slow, methodical, and relentless.  And nothing can stop it.

 

Thank you, and have a good one.
