Makes you wonder what Trump has on some of these Republican congressmen that they want to defend his indefensible fraud and obstruction.
At least one of Trump's minions will be facing ethics violations charged by his local bar association, but why not criminal charges? Threatening Cohen's family?
debarred or not I'm sure the guy will have a place in Trump-O's cabinet soon.

And the lie was Trump did nothing wrong.

Dude spent a decade covering for Trump and a prison sentence was his reward.

Whoopsies...Looks like Cohen lied again to Congress under oath...

Here's the exchange...

Quote:
JORDAN: How long did you work in the White House?

COHEN: I never worked in the White House.

JORDAN: That’s the point, isn’t it, Mr. Cohen?

COHEN: No sir.

JORDAN: Yes it is.

COHEN: No it’s not, sir.

JORDAN: You wanted to work in the White House —

COHEN: No sir.

JORDAN: — you didn’t get brought to the dance. Now —


COHEN: I was extremely proud to be personal attorney to the president of the United States of America. I did not want to go to the White House. I was offered jobs — I can tell you a story of Mr. Trump reaming out Reince Priebus because I had not taken a job where Mr. Trump wanted me to, which was working with Don McGahn at the White House general counsel’s office.
So Cohen says he didn't want to work in the White House...AND he was offered jobs...

BUT!!!!...

...that sounds like somebody not hired after the interview and yelling "Well, I didn't want to work for them anyway!!!"...

He said quite the opposite...From a Daily Beast article from last year...

Quote:
He had left his senior position at the Trump Organization shortly after the election, expecting a coveted appointment in the new administration (he had told friends that he even expected to be named chief of staff), only to see President Trump pass him over for any White House post. Since the presidential campaign, Cohen routinely saw himself on the losing end of bitter feuds between himself and other Trump associates, including former campaign manager Corey Lewandowski, who received the kind of treatment and favor from Trump that Cohen had craved. And the “shadow lobbying” that Cohen engaged in, in his effort to profit off of the Trump era and his relationship with the president, blew up in his face and is one of the reasons he landed in hot water with the feds.
So last year he "expected" to be getting a "coveted appointment in the new administration" and even bragged about it to friends, but today he says he never even wanted to work there...

Sounds like a lie to me...

I watched some of it today. It just seemed like one Lying Dirt Bag, Cohen was giving testimony about whether another Lying Dirt Bag, Trump - (I am NO fan of Trump) colluded with the Russians to show what a Lying Dirt Bag Hillary is. In my opinion the Russians did us a favor - never-the-less if Trump did that it would be illegal, as would illegal payments etc. It is NOT illegal to be a Lying Dirt Bag or a Racist, coward, inept business man etc. that Trump is being accused of. The only thing that should be relevant are any Illegal things that Trump did.
Cohen has said that Trump directed him to do illegal acts by not really telling him to do them. Trump did say verbally or in writing or through another party to do them. Nor did he flash that with Morse Code, or use smoke signals, flare pistols, bongo drums or any know method of communication, yet Trump is accused of directing Cohen of to do illegal things to benefit himself (himself being Trump). Of course those things in many cases also benefited Cohen.
Cohen kept denying that he was at the hearings to benefit himself with something like a book deal, or TV deal movie deal etc. Nor that he was there perhaps to reduce his sentencing. He claimed that he (Cohen) was basically there out of the goodness of his heart to "redeem" himself. The Republicans kept trying to show that Cohen had been convicted in the past of lying so there was a good chance that he was lying again to attempt to benefit himself somehow.
The Democrats seemed to be trying to show that was what Cohen was trying to do was indeed to redeems himself and so wasn't lying.
That's my take on it and I agree with the Republicans that it's a waste of time.

At least the Democrat voters are out to clean that up by electing progressives instead of actors for companies and entities other than thed voters..So far I see none of that from The GOP, in fact the pols are covering for Trump and the R voters who are left in this country buy Trump's con hook line and sinker.

If you want progressives in DC, then I guess that is a good thing. I don't, thank you very much.

A real classic liberal, I could deal with, a moderate conservative, I could deal with. I could not deal with what is defined as a 'Progressive', nor an extreme Conservative.

The Democrats have created this mess, where people were voting ABH (Anybody But Hillary) and unfortunately, Trump was the leading contender.
I truly hope that Trump doesn't run again, the drama and screeching is driving me nuts, but hope the Republicans find someone of some experience, who isn't part of the corrupt DC scene. So far, the Democratic choices aren't even close to what would do some good for this country.

I'm starting to consider becoming a hermit, or drinking heavily, until I'm old enough not to give a flying rats ass who is running the show.
