Trump Triggers The Fix

Cohen did his job. Cohen made it go away.” – Rudy Giuliani

This Michael Cohen thing is so convoluted that often I want to use a Venn diagram or a complex set of flow charts rather than words to describe it.

But here is something really simple. It’s a tweet sent out by candidate Trump on October 15, 2016.

Notice the date of Trump’s tweet. Rudy Giuliani has mentioned “October 15, 2016” in at least two recent television appearances including an exclusive interview with George Stephanopoulos on ABC News and his bombshell interview with Sean Hannity on FOX.

October 15, 2016 is a thing. And Donald Trump has a tweet. And in that short message, he emphasized a single word: “FIX!” The word is a command. This one word imperative is directed to a single individual. It’s an order sent to his Fixer, Michael Cohen.

This tweet destroys the two primary defenses erected by Giuliani:

  1. The $130,000 hush money paid to Stormy Daniels had nothing to do with the campaign.
  2. The hush money was about protecting Trump’s wife and family.

More importantly, this tweet shows that Cohen’s subsequent actions – creating the LLC and paying off Stormy Daniels – originated from Trump.

Sure, the word “FIX!” can be spun in a variety of ways. But Trump is a simple man with a limited vocabulary. To him, fix means fix. And candidate Trump was in a giant kettle of boiling water by October 15, 2016.

Remember this?



The first week of October 2016, The Washington Post released the Access Hollywood audio of Trump. In it, he brags about how his celebrity status gave him the freedom to sexually assault women (“Grab ’em by the pussy.”). 

Within weeks, a host of women came forward with charges of sexual assault or misconduct against candidate Trump. By October 15, a total of sixteen women publicly announced their accusations.*

These allegations were sandwiched between the second and third presidential debates.

The walls were closing in. Trump needed his Fixer to gag his accusers. A frantic candidate worried that the “minds of the American voter” could be poisoned.

On 15 October, Trump sent the FIX! tweet.

100% fabricated and made-up charges, pushed strongly by the media and the Clinton Campaign, may poison the minds of the American Voter. FIX!

Michael Cohen was not doing his job.

On 17 October, the first lawyer for Stormy Daniels advised Cohen that she had not received her $130,000 and the NDA deal was off. Coincidentally, on that day, Cohen created a LLC (Essential Consultants) to secretly distribute funds. He refinanced property to generate a payoff slush fund of nearly $750,000.

Accusations were still swirling around Trump during the final debate on 20 October. He denied them all. He blamed Hillary Clinton and the media. He threatened lawsuits.

Contrary to Giuliani’s statements, Trump had zero concern for the impact of these charges on his family. In that televised debate, he declared with bravado that he had not apologized to Melania Trump.


“I didn’t even apologize to my wife .. because I didn’t do anything!”

“Nobody has more respect for women than Donald Trump. Nobody!”

– Donald Trump, final presidential debate, 20 October 2016

Once again, Donald Trump’s twitter account provides evidence of deceit and collaboration.

  1. He was worried about how women’s accusations (including Stormy Daniels)  might negatively influence his presidential campaign.
  2. He did not care about the impact on his family.
  3. Donald Trump triggered his Fixer, Michael Cohen, via tweet.

Some things are amazingly simple.
