Donald Trump’s former fixer, Michael Cohen, helped Jerry Falwell Jr. suppress the release of some embarrassing photographs.

Could this have anything to do with Falwell’s early endorsement of Donald Trump? 

Courtesy of Reuters:  

Months before evangelical leader Jerry Falwell Jr.’s game-changing presidential endorsement of Donald Trump in 2016, Falwell asked Trump fixer Michael Cohen for a personal favor, Cohen said in a recorded conversation reviewed by Reuters. 

Falwell, president of Liberty University, one of the world’s largest Christian universities, said someone had come into possession of what Cohen described as racy “personal” photographs — the sort that would typically be kept “between husband and wife,” Cohen said in the taped conversation.

According to a source familiar with Cohen’s thinking, the person who possessed the photos destroyed them after Cohen intervened on the Falwells’ behalf.

The Falwells, through a lawyer, declined to comment for this article.

The Falwells enlisted Cohen’s help in 2015, according to the source familiar with Cohen’s thinking, the year Trump announced his presidential candidacy. At the time, Cohen was Trump’s confidant and personal lawyer, and he worked for the Trump Organization.

The Falwells wanted to keep “a bunch of photographs, personal photographs” from becoming public, Cohen told Arnold. “I actually have one of the photos,” he said, without going into specifics. “It’s terrible.”

Cohen would later prove successful in another matter involving Falwell, two people familiar with the matter told Reuters. Cohen helped persuade Falwell to issue his endorsement of Trump’s presidential candidacy at a critical moment, they said: just before the Iowa caucuses. Falwell subsequently barnstormed with Trump and vouched for the candidate’s Christian virtues.

I think we all know that “racy” is a euphemism for sex, so that means that somebody came into possession of photos showing at least one of the Falwells engaging in some type of sexual behavior. 

How would a third party get access to those photos unless they were somehow involved in that behavior?

I am also intrigued by Cohen’s description of the photo as “terrible.” That does not seem to suggest a little S&M kink or a group sex situation, so what does it suggest?  

If Cohen did indeed keep possession of that one photo it could go along way to explain why Falwell was so willing to endorse Trump early in his campaign, despite the fact that Ted Cruz announced his decision to run for president right there on the Liberty University campus. 

Reuters claimed that they had no evidence that the photos and the endorsement were related, but we know that Trump uses tactics just like this to manipulate people and bend them to his will, so I would not be surprised that there was indeed a connection. 

If that were true it would mean that Trump possibly used threats of blackmail to garner political support, which then raises the question of whether or not this was an isolated incident or an ongoing tactic. 

Update: Oh hell, I completely forgot about that 1.8 million that Falwell gave to that pool boy for a “business venture.” (You can read more about that here are the Washington Press.)

Okay, now some things are starting to make sense.

    My enquiring mind wants to know what was in those photos. Pretty terrible for Christians could be a big nothing for others.

      I’m not the only one wondering if it has to do with a certain young Miami Beach poolboy! Giancarlo Granda?

      https://www.miaminewtimes.com/news/jerry-falwell-jr-funded-miami-pool-attendants-alton-road-real-estate-deal-10960428

      “The case raises more questions than answers: Falwell Jr. and his wife appear to have simply “befriended” a then-21-year-old pool attendant while the husband and wife were staying at the ritzy Fontainebleau. They then welcomed the pool attendant into their lives, began flying him around on a private jet, and even put up millions of dollars to help his business ventures. Falwell and his wife have appeared in Facebook photos eating at Macchialina with the pool attendant — a Florida International University graduate named Giancarlo Granda, who now lives in Washington, D.C., and attends Georgetown University. ”

      Because their Jeebus works in mysterious ways!

    =============

    By the way, are those all the FAKE magazine covers the donald had made of himself on the wall?

      ^are those all the FAKE magazine covers the donald had made of himself on the wall? YES.
      v If Falwell is loudly homophobic, me thinks he’s probably in the closet and gets off on threesomes with the Missis. The 3rd being a pool boyish male that hangs like a
      Italian $tallion.

      “A taped conversation between Donald Trump’s former lawyer and Roseanne Barr’s ex-husband shows that Jerry Falwell Jr. was worried about being blackmailed by someone who had graphic pictures of him and/or his wife, possibly a pool boy they had a close relationship with.” “Reuters has obtained a recording of a conversation between Michael Cohen and Tom Arnold, which was recorded without Cohen’s knowledge.

      In the 2015 conversation, Cohen said that Falwell asked him a personal favor: deal with someone who had sexual pictures that could prove embarrassing.”
      “Falwell’s Liberty University bans LGBTQ students. The student honor code says, “Sexual relations outside of a biblically ordained marriage between a natural-born man and a natural-born woman are not permissible at Liberty University.” “Marriage is between ONE man and ONE woman! AND ONE POOL BOY.

      In 2017, the school made Campus Pride’s Shame List of the worst schools for LGBTQ students.”

    My guess is that the photos are of Falwell Jr., his wife, and the pool guy having a three-some. Or maybe Falwell Jr. and the pool guy, or Falwell Jr’s. wife and the pool guy. In any case, the photos are almost certainly sexual.

    I’ve always thought that Trump had unseemly information to blackmail others and he uses that information to get his Republican support in Congress. Two perfect examples are Lindsey Graham & Ted Cruz. Trump has disgustingly trashed Cruz’ wife and Cruz’ father, yet he sought Trump’s endorsement and supports Trump 100%. Now we know that there was blackmail to the Falwell’s via Cohen’s testimony. If Cohen has the information then so does Trump.

    Its probably just pictures of his vagina. Big deal.

    “I fucked something disgusting and I did not want to. It happened.”

    “We hope that you will provide the email to us or the press so that Mr. Weinstein can be afforded due process in the courts of law as well as public opinion,”

    “Thompson first went public last year when she sued Weinstein as part of a class-action civil lawsuit by several women—which is still being litigated—alleging that he engaged in racketeering and sex trafficking.’

    ““These emails are not exculpatory and do not suggest Ms. Thompson had a consensual relationship with Mr. Weinstein,” the source said. “Ms. Thompson has always maintained she was raped by Mr. Weinstein. Mr. Weinstein’s attorneys continue to have an obsession with discrediting Ms. Thompson and the release of this letter the day before a key hearing in which Ms. Thompson may have been considered as a witness against Mr. Weinstein in his criminal trial”

    ““Fear is the main weapon that keeps these victims silent.”
