Report: Trump instructed Cohen to lie to Congress


#106

TDS flaring up real nice today! Lol!


#107

Replace “Cohen” with “Trump” and your statement is no less accurate.


#108

Senate proved on the Deripaska vote that they just don’t give a ■■■■ about what’s good for America.

There are many members of the Trump Fifth Avenue club over there.


#109

Fifth Avenue.


#110

The problem there being that Trump has also lied about this subject from the very beginning.

The buzzfeed story is saying it’s more than just Cohens word however. Multiple witnesses and emails etc.


#111

Needs to get worse.


#112

Those raids on Cohens and Manaforts offices were pretty fruitful, I bet.


#113

They’ve only had about 16 hours. Give them some time. They’re not actual journalists over there.


#114

Pretty much correct.

Will still wait.

What did the emails say, exactly? Who were they from? Were the “witnesses” people who heard Trump tell Cohen to lie or were they people repeating some rumor they heard from someone who heard a rumor that started after the fact?

Not excited yet.

Cohen’s word, of course, is the least worrisome evidence.


#115

Ya it’s early days.

Normally I’d be skeptical of buzzfeed but they have retooled a bit in the last few years to more serious reporting, and one of the journo’s who worked on this piece is a pulitzer winner for his investigative journalism.

If it’s true, I don’t see how Trump’s Presidency continues. But after '16 who knows.


#116

They keep forgetting that Cohen raid. That’s were the bodies were discovered.


#117

Dude was recording convo’s with his client when he was running for President.

Cohen might have been a terrible “fixer”, but he sure seemed to know how to cover his ass.


#118

So the WH still hasn’t officially denied the buzzfeed allegations yet? Uh-oh.


#119

Hogan Gidley? Why does every person in the WH media shop have names like they were written by a teenage fan fic author in 1995?


#120

Absolutely. And if you are going to lie to Congress because the President told you to, and you are someone who covers all these things with recordings and documentation, then you are certainly gong to cover that. So if he ordered Cohen to lie, that will be documented. Conversely, if Cohen did not have such documentation, it is strong evidence it did not happen.


#121

BTW: This is not trivial. The President is probably watching Fox News. What they choose to tell him is important.


#122

Anyone know what Fox & Friends’ narrative is this morning?


#123

Let’s get this show going.


#124

Merkley is right- but DoLoop is also right that the Congress has been dominated by 5th Avenue republicans who would allow for pretty much anything. I would guess there has to be multiple examples of crimes committed before they would vote to convict. We’ll see.

His poll numbers are dropping into the 30s tho. Breaking the threshold into the lower 30s would also make impeachment/conviction easier.

laughing at the liberals that thought they were going to get a pony for their birthday but instead got an etch a sketch.
