    The Cohen Testimony

    @brianstelter
    Cohen to GOP lawmakers: "I did the same thing that you're doing now. For ten years. I protected Mr. Trump for ten years." His warning to them: "The more people that follow Mr. Trump -- as I did blindly -- are going to suffer the same consequences that I'm suffering."

    I just tuned in. Has anyone asked him about the black eye/shoulder injury?

    I'm not watching because these things stress me out especially when they don't ask the obvious. I'll wait for Ari, Rachel and Lawrence tonight.

    Michael Cohen says the last time he heard from Trump or an agent was about two months after the raid but declines to say more because of a pending probe: "Unfortunately this topic is something that's currently being investigated right now by the Southern District of New York."

    Cohen, indignant: "I did not want to go to the White House." He says he sat with Trump for an hour and explained the importance of having a personal attorney like him outside the White House.

    Republican Rep. Michael Cloud asks Cohen to commit to donating any money from future book or movie deals to charity. Cohen says no, he's not going to promise that.
    The first point is valid. So is the second.

    Michael Cohen already confessed his crimes and is headed to prison. Jim Jordan, Mark Meadows, and all the Republicans cry and scream like toddlers attacking him not because he lied to Congress to protect Trump before but because he stopped lying to Congress to protect Trump now.

    Republicans literally have NOTHING to counter Cohen's RECEIPTS: because receipts mean facts. So their tactic? Let's call him a liar!! We must defend Trump at all costs so let's try to attack the witness. Newsflash: mobsters flip on bosses all the time. WITH RECEIPTS.

    Re: The Cohen Testimony

    I don't understand how Republicans on this committee (and others Republicans in congress) can be so defensive of this president. You talk about the wrong side of history.
    Oh Grigor. You silly man.

    This was in the "Hades" thread but reposting it here. Let's hope they ask about this from Page 3 of the document.

    I am providing the Committee today with several documents. These include:

    • A copy of a check Mr. Trump wrote from his personal bank account – after he became president - to reimburse me for the hush money payments I made to cover up his affair with an adult film star and prevent damage to his campaign;
    • Copies of financial statements for 2011 – 2013 that he gave to such institutions as Deutsche Bank;
    • A copy of an article with Mr. Trump’s handwriting on it that reported on the auction of a portrait of himself – he arranged for the bidder ahead of time and then reimbursed the bidder from the account of his non-profit charitable foundation, with the picture now hanging in one of his country clubs; and
    • Copies of letters I wrote at Mr. Trump’s direction that threatened his high school, colleges, and the College Board not to release his grades or SAT scores.

    Plus, they have to know nothing Cohen is saying today has not already been told to Mueller and investigated by Mueller.

    I don't think I've ever seen a man roll his eyes so much at old white guys before. Every time it's a Republican's turn, he deep-sighs.

    Here's a transcript of the exchange in which Michael Cohen suggests that Mueller's office may have corroboration that Trump had advance knowledge of the coming Wikileaks dump.

    It comes in an exchange with @DWStweets (Debbie Wasserman Schultz):

    He said there were 11 checks, some from Trump some from Don Jr.

    Rep. Carol Miller used her time to tell us how Democrats are wasting our time. She is very disappointed.
