Trump Hits Back At Cohen

(Washington, DC) — President Trump is tearing into his former attorney. Outside the White House today, Trump called Michael Cohen a “liar” and said he’s “not very smart.” The comments came after Cohen entered a plea deal with federal prosecutors linked to the Russia probe. In a court appearance, Cohen said negotiations over a major Trump real estate deal in Moscow ran through the 2016 presidential campaign and beyond. During the campaign and after he became President, Trump insisted that he had no financial dealings with Russia.

White Nationalist’s Lawyers Suggest Self-Defense

(Washington, DC) — A lawyer for the man charged with murder in the death of a woman during a white nationalist rally in Charlottesville says his client acted in self defense. During opening statements today in the trial of Alex Fields, Field’s lawyer says he told police officers that he had feared for his safety and was scared to death when he drove his car into a crowd of counter-protestors. A woman was killed in the incident and several others were injured. Fields faces ten charges, including first-degree murder and malicious wounding, after last year’s Unite the Right rally.
