Cohen is a lovely man. He is honest, caring and thoughtful. He loves this country like a true patriot. He is an outstanding citizen and totally uncompromisingly loyal to Truth.
Michael Cohen... sleazebag or patriot?
Citing the criminality of Trump's associates is the best way to prove Trump's innocence?
Michael Cohen was convicted of Perjury in Congressional Testimony.
Here our some things you should know about how Federal criminal cases are carried out.
1) The United States Attorney's Office meets may meet with a Defendant represented by legal counsel in what is called a "Proffer Meeting." This is where a deal is set out that, in exchange for evidence that would assist the government in prosecuting another person, the Defendant receives leniency at sentencing. Michael Cohen was sentenced to 36 months in the US Bureau of Prisons. That means he Cohen had nothing of value to offer at his Proffer Meeting.
2) Prior to sentencing a Defendant in a Federal criminal case is interviewed by a member of the U.S. Probation Department. This is to complete a pre-sentence report. This report is given to the District Judge to assist in the sentencing of a Defendant. In Cohen's pre-sentence report it states that Cohen told the Probation Officer he wanted a high ranking position withing the Trump administration. Cohen stated to the Probation Officer that he resented the fact that Trump offered him no position at all in the adminstration.
3) During yesterday's hearing Cohen was asked, under oath, if he was supposed to get appointed to a position in Trump's administration. Cohen answered "No" and went on to say that he never asked or wanted a position. Cohen stated he wanted to be independent and continue his work as a "fixer."
Michael Cohen is a convicted felon. That alone impeaches any testimony he offers. Michael Cohen was convicted of a crime of moral turpitude. That also impeaches any testimony he offers. Michael Cohen was convicted for committing perjury before a congressional hearing. At yesterday's hearing Michael Cohen, under oath, lied when asked if he wanted to received a position in the Trump administration.
Yesterday's hearing was nothing more than grand theater of at a Shakespearean order. It was a tax payer funded TV ad for the political elite class for the purpose to undermine the legitimacy of the Trump presidency.
"I lied, but I'm not a liar." ~ Michael Cohen
'bout sums it up IMO.
Where is the indignation towards Donald Trump for banging a porn star while his wife is home with his newborn son? Once a liar always a liar? How noble.
Apparently candidate Trump surrounded himself with criminals and liars yet we're supposed to believe that he and his campaign did nothing illegal.
Sir82, Well, when you put it like that ... !
Queequeg - So, what do you think? FWIW, I say sleazebag..
Truth hurts Queeg ??
I would call Michael Cohen a sleazebag, big time.
He got good training from his mentor Donald Trump.
But when both are floating in the toilet, Trump would be the larger piece.
I sprayed deodorizer on my TV after watching parts of Cohen's testimony.
Rub a Dub
Well he is obviously a scumbag, or has been most of his career. Only a scumbag lawyer who has very little ethical standards, would agree to be Trump's fixer, responsible for handling all of Trumps indiscretions and illegalities.
Perhaps the fact that he is going to prison has made him open his eyes, and realize the mistake of being associated with the orange conman, but nevertheless, it does not negate his past actions.
