Cohen Blasts Trump and Trump Blasts Back

Michael Cohen

By Allan Lengel

The hearing had the feel of an underboss for the mob flipping on the boss, with some of the interrogators having little trust in what he said.

Nonetheless, freshly disbarred attorney Michael Cohen, a convicted liar and cheat,  took to Capitol Hill on Wednesday and did a major dump on his former boss, President Donald Trump,  calling him a con man and a racist, and suggesting he had broken the law.  He also indicated that he was assisting the U.S. Attorney’s Office in New York in a criminal probe into the president.

The Republican members couldn’t find enough ways to call him a liar who is incapable of telling the truth. The Democrats insisted the Republicans were afraid of him telling the truth.

Meanwhile, in Vietnam, President Trump attacked the testimony.

“It was pretty shameful, I think,” Trump said, according to USA Today. He went on to call it a fake hearing, but was pleased that Cohen did not suggest there was collusion with Russia.

He didn’t lie about one thing: He said no collusion with the Russian hoax,” Trump said.

“I was actually impressed he didn’t say I think there was collusion for this reason or that,” Trump said. “… I was a little impressed by that frankly.”

Fired FBI Supervisor Sues for Sex Discrimination and Retaliation

By Allan Lengel

Jennifer Boughton, a former civilian supervisor at the FBI’s Cincinnati field office, filed a federal lawsuit Tuesday alleging sexual discrimination and retaliation after she complained some of the male employees on her team slept on the job, lied about their work and drove FBI cars after drinking alcohol,  Fox 19 reports.

Boughton began working for the FBI in October 2003 and was promoted to Supervisory Investigative Specialist in December 2008, according to the lawsuit. She spent most of her time overseeing a mobile surveillance team. She received no discipline and had no performance issues between 2008 and 2014, according to the lawsuit.

In May 2015, she was reassigned to special projects and her pay was reduced and her car privileges were revoked. She was fired in early 2016, the station reports.
