Media: The SDNY Will Take Down Trump

With some even saying to “forget” about the Robert Mueller Russia investigation, press members said the Southern District of New York’s investigation of the Trump organization was where the real threat to President Donald Trump was.

Last week, SDNY prosecutors revealed their investigation into hush money payments to women Michael Cohen claims to have made at Trump’s direction had ended. Fox News reported this meant there are likely no charges to be filed against Trump or other members of the Trump Organization.

CNN reported it was a “significant victory” for Trump’s family business:

The conclusion of federal prosecutors’ investigation of the Trump company’s role in the Cohen matter marks a significant victory for the President’s family business, although it likely doesn’t come as a complete surprise. There had been no contact between the Manhattan US Attorney’s office and officials at the Trump Organization in more than five months, CNN reported Friday.

Yet this development could come as a surprise to pundits and reporters who believed, for instance, that “this is where it ends for this president.”

So said MSNBC host Donny Deutsch in February about the SDNY’s investigation. Deutsch also remarked that “what is going to destroy everything he ever built and his children is a 30-year dishonest criminal enterprise.”

“Many analysts have said that the Manhattan office of the Justice Department, the Southern District of New York, poses the real threat to the president,” MSNBC’s Brian Williams said on March 26.

“Is there something there? If a prosecutor is looking at everything you ever did for 30 years, probably,” MSNBC legal analyst Paul Butler said on March 18.

“You can see sort of the dominoes falling,” former SDNY prosecutor Harry Sandick told CNN’s Erin Burnett March 5 of the investigation into the Trump Organization.

MSNBC host Joe Scarborough said to “forget Mueller” and look at the SDNY, which was an “existential crisis” for Trump. CNN’s Kate Bolduan and New York Times reporter Maggie Haberman said the investigation was of greater peril to Trump than Mueller’s Russia probe, which dominated the news for nearly two years.

Other commentators like MSNBC’s Nicolle Wallace, ABC’s Sunny Hostin, and former Obama solicitor general Neal Katyal made similar pronouncements.

Trump has claimed to not be aware of Cohen’s payments to Stormy Daniels and Karen McDougal, the women who say they had affairs with Trump and were paid off in order to not hurt his 2016 election chances. Trump has also denied the affairs.

The Democratic-led House Oversight Committee asked the SDNY last week if Justice Department guidelines about not indicting a sitting president prevented them from charging Trump with campaign finance law violations.

Dem Rep Maloney Hits Back at AOC’s Opposition to Amazon HQ2: ‘It Used to Be That We Would Protest Wars — Now We’re Protesting Jobs’

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), but Maloney questioned that opposition. Partial transcript as follows: BURNETT: I want to ask you about another big story tonight, Amazon, abruptly canceling plans to build, it would be a massive headquarters in New York. People like your colleague Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez have been celebrating this. You’ve seen this from some several progressives. She said, “Today was the day a group of dedicated everyday New Yorkers defeated Amazon’s corporate greed, its worker exploitation, and the power of the richest man in the world.” It’s your district, not hers, now is that how you see it? MALONEY: Absolutely. My constituents want jobs. BURNETT: This was 25,000 job. MALONEY: Twenty minimum, it would have been many, many more, 25,000 jobs at 150,000 minimum for the for the job. Many entry-level jobs would have been – many, many more they were working with the community on job fairs and the other types of entry-level jobs that they would have.

Dem Sen. Merkley: Trump Created ‘Humanitarian Crisis’ on Border with Child Prisons, Family Internment Camps

Wednesday on CNN’s “OutFront,” Sen. Jeff Merkley (D-OR) dismissed President Donald Trump’s remarks stating that he wanted more legal immigration to the United States. The Oregon Democrat said he didn’t believe Trump was sincere and added that the president had criminalized asylum, which in turn has created a humanitarian crisis. “No, I don’t believe it — unless he had some thing in his head that he was talking about tourism or something of that nature, business partnerships. But I think he was trying to take a little bit of a step away from the fact that he’s presented himself as really being against immigrants coming to the United States. Now, realize when people flee persecution, and the vast bulk of people come to the southern border, they’re fleeing persecution in Central America, they’re presenting themselves for asylum. They are taking a legal act under our law and international. It was a criminalization of this, which is incorrect and wrong by the president in all kind of ways, followed by child separation, abuse of children, child prisons, family internment camps. He’s created that humanitarian crisis.” Follow Jeff Poor on Twitter @jeff_poor
