What we’ve learned from the Cohen hearings (so far)

I feel like doing a roundup today, so here we go. First off, we learn that Cohen was a take-the-money-and-run kind of guy: Yeah, that’s right: Novartis PAID him to influence Donnie, but he just took their money for (apparently) … Continue reading

Dutch historian pwns Bowtie Boy

Who’s going to stop Donnie? Who else…
