Cohen to spill Trump beans to Congress next month


…from Press TV, Tehran

[ Editor’s Note: The Donald can pretend all he wants that Michael Cohen cannot lay a glove on him. Rudy Giuliani has done a great disservice to Trump if he has advised otherwise, but that said, Rudy is no angel.

From the high New York City positions he held, he had access to all he needed to know about who the real Donald was; the young girl issue, money laundering for the Italian mob, and he was fine with it.

Cohen’s testimony will be a big media event, right when Trump will be wanting to jump start his 2020 campaign after his State of the Union address, where he will undoubtedly tell us how lucky we are to have him. And with Cohen already having a 3-year sentence, I doubt he will be lying to Congress and risk digging a deeper hole for himself.

He is not that old. The three years will pass and he will go on with his life, albeit after having transferred his net worth to his attorneys. And then it will be book time to jump start a new life.

Mueller has been completely out of the news, even through December. The country may eventually get to see who the real rat is after all. Despite many thinking they already know, this saga has been nothing if not full of surprises.

As the Congressional battle heats up Trump will have some cover. He would be smart to stop wanting to be hogging the spotlight all the time. Even good brands have killed themselves with over exposure Jim W. Dean ]

Trump and Cohen during better days

– First published … January 11, 2019

US President Donald Trump’s former lawyer Michael Cohen has been scheduled to testify publicly in Congress next month.

Cohen said in a statement Thursday he had accepted an invitation to testify from Representative Elijah Cummings, the Democratic chairman of the Committee on Oversight and Government Reform in the House of Representatives.

The testimony poses a potential new threat to the president in the Russia collusion investigation.

In December, Cohen was sentenced to three years in prison for crimes that included arranging hush payments during the 2016 presidential election to silence women who claim to have had affairs with Trump.

“I look forward to having the privilege of being afforded a platform with which to give a full and credible account of the events which have transpired,” Cohen said in the statement.

Cohen, who had been Trump’s right-hand-man at the Trump Organization in New York, confessed to covering up his boss’s “dirty deeds.”

Meanwhile, Trump dismissed news of Cohen’s upcoming testimony in Congress as unimportant, claiming he had no worries about what Cohen would say about him.

Last month, Trump had referred to Cohen as a “rat” who was helping the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) gather incriminating evidence against him for what he described as a “witch hunt.”

  1. This is going to be great for ratings on CNN and MSNBC, but it only serves to highlight what these so called news outlets have devolved into which is 24/7 political gossip and sensationalism. It’s Ironic that American’s can obtain better 24/7 news on RT than any other cable news outlet in the U.S. It’s Radio free Europe in reverse.

  2. And Bill and Hillary Clinton ? Have they left the country ? Maybe sitting in Gitmo where they belong ? The Clintons should be thankful Hillary didnt become President what a circus that would have offered Americans to sit through .

  3. Didn’t this douche bag already spill the beans, and plea out to perjury and other not so high crimes? Did he hold back something from that professional fixer Mueller? Isn’t he supposed to be incarcerated? This guy Cohen is an anomaly??????? Maybe an amoeba.

    • The point is that ALL that he spilled has not been made public, as Mueller is holding his cards tight until his final report. So my point here is we should learn a lot more as Cohen has to answer the questions asked at the Congressional hearing, which should be the biggest opening we have had to see what Mueller has on the issues involving Cohen, and how far back Mueller has gone looking for “incidents”.

  4. Rather than providing Cohen another platform, I would much rather Congress force all the lying lawyers in our Injustice Department to come before it, under oath, whatever that may mean, and explain to the country why they haven’t indicted traitors Bush, Cheney , the four star generals and gangsters in Israel for the crimes of 9/11/01. A mountain of evidence and facts prove they did these crimes. Ordinary citizens should be permitted to interrogate them too. When will any justice be done in this totally corrupt dictatorship totalitarian Israel controlled cesspool? . At the end of their presentation, all of them should be arrested themselves for failing in their basic duties.
