Cohen: Convicted Liar on Lies

Trump's former lawyer is testifying before Congress to throw his old boss under the bus.

Michael Cohen, former personal lawyer for Donald Trump, has been somewhat of an Achilles heel for his old boss for some time. Trump, over the course of his career, has put his trust in some very untrustworthy people. One of them is Cohen, who lived high on the hog for many years off of his Trump fees. Ahead of the release of the much-anticipated report from Special Counsel Robert Mueller, the now-disbarred and convicted felon Cohen is testifying before Congress for three days this week, supposedly to reveal Trump’s darkest secrets. Leftmedia pundits have grabbed the popcorn and are on the edge of their seats for the “explosive” and “shocking” spectacle.

According to strategically leaked prepared testimony, Cohen will reportedly tell the House Oversight Committee today that Trump is a “racist,” “conman,” and “a cheat.” Gee, we’ve never heard that before. He is also expected to testify that Trump knew political hack Roger Stone “was talking with Julian Assange about a WikiLeaks drop of Democratic National Committee emails.”

But Democrats will be disappointed with this admission: “Questions have been raised about whether I know of direct evidence that Mr. Trump or his campaign colluded with Russia. I do not. I want to be clear. But, I have my suspicions.”

Oh. “Suspicions.”

Cohen was also convicted of lying to Congress, so there’s that. And most of his allegations will be unverifiable — just his word against Trump’s. Nevertheless, this time, “I am here to tell the truth.”

Frankly, this is little more than yet another episode in the reality TV series that has been Trump’s presidency. He, for one, relishes in the chaos — all while he’s actually accomplishing things. And leftists are so acutely suffering from Trump Derangement Syndrome that they obsessively chase every shiny object.

That’s not to say Trump isn’t in very real legal danger, particularly on alleged campaign-finance violations surrounding his sordid affairs with a porn star and a Playboy model. As Mark Alexander warned, “As his former attorney, Cohen knows where, on Trump’s behalf, he hid corporate and personal legal skeletons.” Apparently, the man who in 2017 said he would “take a bullet” for Trump is ready to bury his former friend and boss, seemingly purely out of spite. As Herman Melville’s Captain Ahab declared in Moby Dick, “To the last, I grapple with thee; from hell’s heart, I stab at thee; for hate’s sake, I spit my last breath at thee.”
