Cohen testimony on Trump: 'He is a racist. He is a conman. He is a cheat.'

Source: Politico

Michael Cohen, President Donald Trump’s former lawyer and fixer, will provide documents to the House Oversight Committee on Wednesday that he says prove Trump’s “illicit” acts, according to prepared congressional testimony obtained by POLITICO.

The documents include a check that Trump purportedly wrote after he became president to reimburse Cohen for a hush-money payment to the adult-film actress Stormy Daniels, who alleges she had an affair with Trump. Cohen says the money came from Trump’s personal bank account.

Cohen, who pleaded guilty to crimes that included lying to Congress, will express remorse over his service to Trump, and will say he is no longer interested in protecting the president.

“I am ashamed that I chose to take part in concealing Mr. Trump’s illicit acts rather than listening to my own conscience,” Cohen will say. “I am ashamed because I know what Mr. Trump is.” Cohen adds: “He is a racist. He is a conman. He is a cheat.”

2. Coincidentally, Trump and Pence left the country for a few days.

Does that smell of guilt, or what?

9. I can hear screaming from South East Asia.

"I’m giving the Committee today three years of President Trump’s financial statements, from 2011-2013,which he gave to Deutsche Bank to inquire about a loan to buy the Buffalo Bills & to Forbes.

10. And what are the odds that he lied in those financial statements.

Thus triggering even broader investigations into his fraudulent dealings. Trump should have been in jail a LONG time ago.

11. Trumps lawyers helped him write his false statement to Congress.

Wouldnt that be a felony?
To deliberately help someone commit perjury?
It would be nice if Trump lost his lawyers because they had to go to prison.

14. unless Cohen has hard evidence to backup all his claims, this really goes nowhere, its all about

 

having hard evidence like email, audio recordings and text messages. otherwise its just words coming from a former trump employee

15. Sorry, but opening statements are BS.

This reads like Cohen's making a play for sympathy and trying to distract Congress from his own malfeasance with stories about how ridiculously evil Trump is. Of course, Trump is ridiculously evil, and at least some of the incidents Cohen recounted probably happened just as he described them. But unsworn statements from someone who talks like a liar even when he's telling the truth are meaningless. And I hope that when he's actually on the floor, the Committee stays on target and squeezes him for facts.

20. Just wait for the tweet storm that's going to happen at 3 a.m. Thursday

Rage-aholic Trump is going to be in meltdown following Cohen's testimony. How dare Cohen say Trump isn't worth what he says he is!

21. Wow, the list of crimes and misdemeanors just keep piling up.

There has never been a person more deserving of impeachment than Donald Trump.
