Democrats yet again pretend they have Trump over a barrel.
Because Trump’s former crooked lawyer says that Trump tried to do business in Russia? The shock of a businessman who might, repeat might have tried to do business in Russia.
That’s your smoking gun?
By the way, Cohen is the same shyster who taped his client? Weren’t those recordings suppose to usher in the demise of Trump?
Remember in June of this year when CNN’s Chris Cuomo broke the news of having one of the Cohen tapes?
Presidential candidate Donald Trump is heard on tape discussing with his attorney Michael Cohen how they would buy the rights to a Playboy model’s story about an alleged affair Trump had with her years earlier, according to the audio recording of the conversation aired exclusively on CNN’s “Cuomo Prime Time.”
The recording offers the public a glimpse at the confidential discussions between Trump and Cohen, and it confirms the man who now occupies the Oval Office had contemporaneous knowledge of a proposal to buy the rights to the story of Karen McDougal, a woman who has alleged she had an extramarital affair with Trump about a decade ago.
Cohen told Trump about his plans to set up a company and finance the purchase of the rights from American Media, which publishes the National Enquirer. The recording captures what appears to be a routine business conversation of several matters on their agenda. The audio is muddled and the meaning of Trump’s use of the word “cash” is disputed by the two sides.
What came of this? Nothing.
So a month later what did Cuomo do?
He pretended that Trump KNEW the tapes had nothing on them that would harm Trump. And on this point, Cuomo was correct.
As converted CNN Leftists Alisyn Camarota said recently, [pp] “If I had a nickel for every time somebody said Trump was going down, I could buy a Starbucks!”
Not a cup of overpriced coffee, but a Starbucks FRANCHISE, I suspect.
The Left will never get Trump, because there is no Trump to get. But getting Trump is the new en vogue thing to do for Leftists. Interestingly, getting Trump is the Left’s trending political fashion for three years running now. And they won’t stop for the next six years.
What exactly did Cohen say?
According to CNN,
President Donald Trump spoke with Michael Cohen more extensively about the proposed Trump Tower project in Moscow than Cohen previously told Congress, Cohen admitted in federal court Thursday.
Cohen, Trump’s former lawyer, pleaded guilty Thursday to making false statements to Congress about the Russia investigation in a charge brought by special counsel Robert Mueller.
Cohen had previously said talks about the Moscow project had ended in January 2016 just prior to the Iowa caucuses.
The Cohen revelations are potentially significant because they appear to show that Trump was engaged in business dealings with Russia in the midst of a campaign in which Moscow interfered to help elect him.
Let’s say for a moment that we actually believe fake news CNN.
The implication of what they reported is that Trump orchestrated becoming president, so he could engage in business in Moscow?
I’m joining the Jerome Corsi lawsuit on this one, and suggesting that Mueller now commits prosecutorial misconduct.
Talk about strong-arming a guy.
Here’s how I’m guessing things went down:
Mueller: Listen, you can play ball, or I send you to prison. Give me something. Those tapes were a bust. You know everything about Trump, but you’ve given me bupkus! Don’t make me go all General Flynn on you!
Cohen: OK OK! What if I admit that Trump colluded with the Russian to build buildings in Russia? Will that do it?
The lesson here, boy and girls, is make sure when you hire a lawyer, you check his political affiliation. AND check for male genitalia, because Cohen is officially Mueller’s bitch.
Why would Cohen supposedly lie in the first place about Trump’s dealings with Russia?
CNN does everything but ask this question.
“In truth and in fact, and as Cohen well knew, Cohen’s representations about the Moscow Project he made to (House and Senate intelligence committees) were false and misleading,” Mueller’s office said in a court filing.
“Cohen made the false statements to … give the false impression that the Moscow Project ended before ‘the Iowa caucus and….the very first primary,’ in hopes of limiting the ongoing Russia investigations,” the filing adds.
If Trump had a potential project in Moscow, so what? Why would his attorney lie about it.
Trump has properties in many areas of the world. Istanbul, Toronto, Manila. Were these countries part of a criminal conspiracy as well?
President Trump blasted Cohen as a “weak man” reduced to lying lying to get a reduced prison sentence.
“He is a weak person … Michael Cohen is lying and he’s trying to get a reduced sentence for things that have nothing to do with me,” President Trump said.
“When I’m running for president that doesn’t mean I’m not allowed to do business,” the president said.
I see a second special counsel in our future. This one will investigate Robert Mueller and his crooked team.
Mueller appears to want to expand the scope of his farce to anybody who did business with Trump. If Mueller can make Trump toxic, then perhaps Trump will crack.
For a man who has already lost over $1 billion as president, I don’t think he will take much longer. When he decides to do it, I wouldn’t want to be around.
Former U.S. Attorney Joseph diGenova has a theory about how Mueller is trying to cover his ass:
“But the thing to me that’s fascinating is all of a sudden the entire investigation by Mueller is focusing on people who are lying,” diGenova said. “Why is that happening? The answer is very simple: The original purpose of the investigation was Russian collusion. That’s failed miserably. There’s no evidence of it.”
So now Mueller is “charging people with lying so that he can say in his report, ‘I would have proved collusion but all these people lied and prevented me from doing it,’” diGenova speculated, saying that “this is the new narrative of Mueller” and the “new Russian collusion theme.”
Mueller wants people to think, “If only people told the truth, Mueller could have gotten Trump.”
Nice and tidy ending for Mueller; except it doesn’t reveal the real crooks. The Democrats.
Don’t think Trump will allow Mueller and team to get away with it.
