Cohen testimony on Trump: ‘He is a racist. He is a conman. He is a cheat.’ – POLITICO

I’m going to be a bit of a contrarian here. I remember Michael Cohen from that CNN Jeanne Moos fit where he refused to answer questions and kept saying say what. I remember Michael Cohen for being the person defending Trump left and right. So here we are.

I keep bringing up Watergate but it’s the only thing that I can refer to within my memory that’s even remotely like what’s happening right now. John Dean was not a good guy and he brought Nixon down. Michael Cohen is not a good guyand I hope he brings the current occupants of the White House down.

Everything in this article is what we already knew about Trump, he’s a racist short, he’s a liar sure, he’s a cheat of course.

his testimony in front of the house tomorrow will be very telling. It’s almost midnight on the East coast so in about 10 hours this spectacle begins.

MSNBC legal expert: Cohen flipping puts Trump ‘one witness away’ from catastrophe – TheHill

When you live in a den of Thieves who do you accuse when something is stolen?

I have never understood why anyone would like Rudy Giuliani. He was an unlikeable mayor who did a terrible job at running the city. And his time since 9/11 has been anything but spectacular. Now, this drooling excuse for an attorney he’s trying to make what is obviously a crime into a nothingburger, to quote one of the future co-conspirators.

I’ve said it before, Michael Cohen has no pedigree but even a liar like Michael corn can be corroborated by a second Witness. All of those people at the Trump Tower pre-meeting are subject to be interrogated and perhaps even be charged and one of them is going to flip. And that one would be the proverbial straw that broke the camel’s back, in this case the camel’s back is the Trump Administration. And I don’t want to hear anything about a president Pence, he was in charge of the transition and therefore neck deep in the crud of this Administration.

If Cohen is telling us the truth, Trump may end up like Flynn – TheHill

One time, and this one time only, I will agree with Rudy Giuliani about something. Michael Cohen is a liar. he is a liar that is trying his hardest to keep himself out of jail. What the good America’s mayor forgot to say was that a few weeks ago Giuliani himself said that Michael corn was a good man. A good man is not a liar or do I have my definitions mixed up?

I truly hope that the headline of this story is what happens in the end. But one thing that is never spoken about is the fact that Mike Pence, yes mr. Clean cut vice president, was in charge of the transition. And as such he must have known about Flynn, the Russians, and all of the other Shenanigans going on in those horrendous months between the election and the inauguration of the 45th president. So who will take over from Trump if Mike Pence is also implicated? And that’s why we need to have Democratic house in November. Because next in line is the speaker of the house and not the Secretary of State as so many believe. And can you imagine a president Jim Jordan? Alright enough nightmares for today.

Giuliani: Trump repaid Cohen $130,000 for Stormy Daniels hush agreement – POLITICO

What a relief, for those of us, who believed that there was a chance that Michael Cohen and his family would be put out on the street due to the second mortgage he took out on his house or home. Well now we know the president paid him back for the hush money regarding the self-described pornstar Stormy Daniels.

Michael Avenatti, Stephanie Clifford aka Stormy Daniels attorney, must be playing four dimensional chess against Rudy Giuliani who I doubt knows how to play checkers. This cannot be a wonderful night at the White House. Not only does this implicitly say that the president paid off a pornstar but most likely means that he also slept with her. I cannot imagine how much Sadness the first lady must be feeling.

I wonder if this is another case of the White House throwing Michael Cohen under the bus? It certainly makes them seem less sympathetic now that he’s been paid back the money.

Trump allies {Alan Dershowitz} worry Cohen will flip – POLITICO

First and foremost I would love Alan dershowitz to stop acting like he is some sort of conciliatory 2 45. He’s giving him bad advice. He’s telling him things there are not going to happen. He is putting our country and government in a crisis. It’s time for Alan dershowitz to stop talking.

Michael Cohen May indeed flip. Unfortunately for Trump he is not the mafia or La Cosa Nostra. He is the president of the United States and cannot order a hit on someone. Michael corn is facing decades in prison for the work he’s done for Trump and much of it cannot be pardoned by Trump. So yes Michael corn is in a pickle and the FBI and special prosecutor and the Manhattan district attorney have him in there cross eyes.
