Michael Cohen to plead 5th Amendment in Stormy Daniels suit
In a bid to delay the case, President Trump’s personal lawyer tells a federal court he intends to assert his right not to incriminate himself.

Michael Cohen, President Donald Trump’s longtime personal attorney, indicated on Wednesday that he planned to assert his Fifth Amendment rights not to testify in connection with a pending civil lawsuit brought by a porn star that seeks to void a $130,000 “hush money” deal Cohen allegedly cut to try to suppress her story in advance of the 2016 presidential election.

Nikogo nie można zmuszać do składania zeznań, które by go obciążyły.
Ale fakt, że adwokat urzędującego prezydenta USA uważa, że odpowiadając otwarcie na pytania naraziłby się na odpowiedzialność karną (bo ujawniłby swoje przestępstwa) to sytuacja literalnie bez precedensu.

Polecam cały artykuł, ale najważniejsze cytaty, komentarze do wystąpienia Trumpa w Helsinkach, który powiedział tam, że bardziej wierzy Putinowi niż amerykańskim służbom wywiadowczym i kontrwywiadowczym, umieszczam poniżej.

W kolejności:
- Secretary of State (Republikanin, mianowany przez Trumpa, za zgodą republikańskiej większości w Senacie), 
- Senate Majority Leader (Republikanin),
- House Speaker (Republikanin),
- Senate Intelligence Committee Chairman (Republikanin),
- Director of National Intelligence (Republikanin, mianowany przez Trumpa, za zgodą republikańskiej większości w Senacie), 
- Former CIA Director,
- Former Director of National Intelligence.

Bez wątpienia najważniejszym “assetem” Putina w jego hybrydowej wojnie z Zachodem jest Trump.
Ale warto pamiętać, że po przeciwnej stronie skali funkcjonuje plankton, który na ochotnika (a może za kilkaset złotych jurgieltu, trudno powiedzieć, co gorsze) niestrudzenie wychwala wielkiego wodza - Putina.

12. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo: "We're eyes wide open about Russian efforts to undermine western democracy. We're going to do our level best to stop them, and when we don't stop them, we will call them out for it. ... This administration has been incredibly tough on Russia. We're proud of that, and I'm confident we'll have to continue to do so, as there's still Russian behavior that is inconsistent with a good relationship with our two countries."

11. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell: "I think the Russians need to know that there are a lot of us who fully understand what happened in 2016, and it really better not happen again in 2018."

9. House Speaker Paul Ryan: "The President must appreciate that Russia is not our ally. There is no moral equivalence between the United States and Russia, which remains hostile to our most basic values and ideals. The United States must be focused on holding Russia accountable and putting an end to its vile attacks on democracy."

8. Senate Intelligence Committee Chairman Richard Burr: "I need to hear the President, without any hedging, say that he believes that the Russians were and are meddling in our elections. I haven't heard that yet. You can only run from facts for so long."

7. Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats: "We have been clear in our assessments of Russian meddling in the 2016 election and their ongoing, pervasive efforts to undermine our democracy, and we will continue to provide unvarnished and objective intelligence in support of our national security."

3. Former CIA Director John Brennan: "Donald Trump's press conference performance in Helsinki rises to & exceeds the threshold of 'high crimes & misdemeanors.' It was nothing short of treasonous. Not only were Trump's comments imbecilic, he is wholly in the pocket of Putin. Republican Patriots: Where are you???"

1. Former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper: "But more and more I come to a conclusion after the Helsinki performance and since, that I really do wonder if the Russians have something on him."
