Cohen Forced To Admit The Truth About His Relationship with Democratic Party

Michael Cohen, who formerly served as President Donald Trump’s personal attorney, told Congress on Wednesday that he and his team spoke with top Congressional Democrats before his testimony to the House Oversight and Reform Committee.

Cohen said he spoke with Democratic Rep. Elijah Cumming of Maryland, who chairs the committee Cohen spoke to Wednesday, and Democratic Rep. Adam Schiff of California, who chairs the House Intelligence Committee.

“We’ve spoken to the party,” Cohen said, adding that he spoke to Schiff “and his people” ahead of Wednesday’s hearing, according to Fox News.

During the hearing, Cummings publicly commiserated with Cohen for being called a “rat” by Trump.

“When you call somebody a rat that’s one of the worst things you can call them because when they go to prison that means a snitch. I’m just saying. And so the President called you a rat. We’re better than that, we really are,” he said.

During his appearance, Cohen savaged Trump repeatedly.

He said, in closing, that if Trump loses the 2020 election “there will never be a peaceful transition of power,” The Guardian reported.

He also criticized Trump’s policies.

“You don’t shut down the government before Christmas and New Years just to appease your base. This behavior is churlish, it denigrates the office of the president and it simply is un-American. And it’s not you. So to those that support the President and his rhetoric as I once did, I pray the country doesn’t make the same mistakes that I have made or pay the heavy price that my family and I are paying,” Cohen said, according to CNN.

He claimed working for Trump was an endless cycle of lies.

“Every day most of us knew we were coming in and we were going to lie for him on something and that became the norm and that’s exactly what’s happening right now in this country and what’s happening here in the government,” he said.

Republicans pushed back against Cohen. Trump’s 2020 campaign sent out a statement that noted what was said about Cohen in past court appearances.

“As noted by the Southern District of New York, Cohen’s wide array of crimes were ‘marked by a pattern of deception that permeated his professional life’ and his ‘instinct to blame others is strong.’ Prosecutors said his actions were to ensure that he would ‘profit personally, build his own power, and enhance his level of influence.’ This is the same Michael Cohen who has admitted that he lied to Congress previously. Why did they even bother to swear him in this time?” the statement said.

During Cohen’s testimony, Ohio Rep. Jim Jordan, the committee’s ranking Republican, invoked the issue of trust.

“Here’s the point, the chairman just gave you a 30-minute opening statement and you have a history of lying over and over and over again and frankly don’t take my word for it, take what the court said. ‘Cohen did crimes marked by a pattern of deception and that permeated his professional life,’” Jordan said.

“Here’s what I see,” he said according to the Springfield News Sun. “I see a guy who worked for 10 years in here trashing the guy he worked for … didn’t get a job in the White House and now you’re behaving just like everyone else who has got fired or didn’t get the job they wanted … same kind of selfish motivation after you don’t get the things you want.”

Cohen said he was not persuaded by Democrats to testify.

    You can’t be surprised that the Democrats orchestrated this hearing prepping Cohen into what he was going to do and say. Cummins, Schiff and others say what? This is so typical and now they will continue to attack our President with something they did with the dossier against Trump and used to start investigations during his run for President. Don’t be fooled folks these commie democrats are worse than anything ever perpetrated against anyone ever before.

    No surprise to me. The Democrats are some corrupt people, yet they think Trump is the worst person on the planet. I realize the circus show isn’t governed by courtroom proceedings, if it was all of the Democrats would be called out for leading the witness.

    No income, going to prison for his own acts to get rich quick schemes, leaving his family no money to live on? A big Dem payout would sound pretty good to this no good scoundrel. It was all planned out to try and fool the American people again! Think about it. Worse case of terriorists in our own Country.

    Cohen showed the world the $130,000 check signed by Trump to pay back the bribe paid to Stormy Daniels. But pretending that those boxes that Mueller returned to Cohen were not gone through with a fine tooth comb or that Mueller did not already have a copy of that check months ago is laughable. The phony outrage by the Democrats is that Obama committed a worse campaign violation of more than $600,000 and got off the legal hook by paying a $375,000 fine as reported by Maggie Haberman in 2013. This hearing was nothing more than blowing smoke up America’s ass and making a silk purse out of a sow’s ear! It was the worse kind of Smoke & Mirrors politics seen in recent years in Washington…I now realize that the Resist Democrats have not reach the bottom of their cesspool…Cohen proved over and over again he was a gangster who filed false tax returns, fuc*ed his lenders involving $20 million and lied under oath…Cohen violated ever aspect of responsibility of being an attorney and deserved to lose his license to practice law, Cohen was not hired by Trump to be a CHEERLEADER by never giving any legal advice or by never protecting Trump against himself. THAT IS WHY PEOPLE HIRE AN ATTORNEY… It was clear Cohen wanted a job in the White House that was reported a number of times in the media…now he says he got what he wanted…BULL SHIT flowed from his lips.

    Apparently that idiot Cohen does not realize the president is supposed to honor the wishes of his “base”. That is why we elected him. Cohen is a lying piece of crap. He should be charged with treason for all his lying against our President.

    Can anyone tell me how and why Americans still vote for or support Democrats?
    Is it only because of the “handouts” and false promises of a Utopian society and life,
    or they don’t care to research, or they are stuck watching ONLY CNN, or they think act
    and live based ONLY on 100% “gut feelings”, or they are registered as a Democrat, so
    vote without thinking about it?

    Have I left anything out?
    I especially especially especially cannot understand ANY Black person voting for the
    party that created and fought for slavery and the kkk.

    Oh, and one more thing…..

    Is there a way to take a poll in America, for how many
    people vote Democrat just to keep their job and livelihood?

    Funniest part of his “testimony” was when he was asked if he was going to seek a pardon from President Trump….he said he never gave it any thought…well, that’s one less thing he has to think about before going to the “slammer” !!

    Not until cohen decided to defect to the democrats did he become so popular. An admitted liar getting all of this attention-makes zero sense.
