Trump’s Attorney Double Flips
The reason for Donald Trump’s playing overly nice with Russia was just another deal. He so desired a Trump Tower in Moscow that he overtly showed his hand during his campaign. Once he took a Pro-Putin position, the Donald never changed his actions and words, even after he was nominated. Trump seemed to many conservative scholars and foreign relations experts as less than Republican. Some also think that Trump is doing long-term damage with his bias. When Trump compliments Vladimir Putin and Russia, it’s not some diplomatic ploy, it’s just a longing to make money in Moscow.
Today (11-29-2018) in New York Federal court, Michael Cohen admitted that he lied to Congress about the timeline on pitching Trump’s projects in Russia. Now, Trump’s former attorney will co-operate with the Special Counsel Robert Mueller. Cohen will be able to fill in the facts and expose the lies that Trump has been telling before and after he became President.
None of this will be surprising to anyone who has been reading this blog over the last two years. The 45th President is a man who lies constantly and will do anything behind closed doors to enrich himself or gratify his bodily desires. Besides being unfit president, Trump is an amoral human being. Once again, the devil has tempted and is in control of the deeply evangelicals. When do their eyes open?
Trump claimed that he’s not guilty of anything because the Trump Tower was NOT built in Moscow. He also admitted that he did have a deal in the pipeline for Moscow, even after he said he had NO business in Russia. Trump’s denial seemed rather defensive and contrived. He even said, “I wasn’t trying to hide anything.” That sounded a bit like, “I am not a crook.”
All the President’s men and women will be paraded out to condemn Michael Cohen as a traitor to the cause and a liar. Once again, we will hear denials. Did you notice how often Trump uses the phrase, “He denied it.” It’s getting to the point where when we hear those words, we automatically think the person Trump is defending, did the deed.
He has stated belief in the denials of Roger Ailes, Harvey Weinstein, Rob Porter, Roy Moore, Vladimir Putin, and the Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia. He only believes what he has already concluded, rather than even consider any other options. He cannot muster the courage to take the findings of scientists about Climate Change seriously. On the issue of how Climate Change could affect our well-being, he said, “I don’t belief it.”
Michael Cohen might be playing for a better life outside of prison, but clearly, if he can document much of what he is revealing to the court and Special Counsel, this can only spell the death of this presidency. Donald Trump may have concluded his written answers to the questions from Russian interference investigation, but now Trump must be called to testify. Anything less than a recorded deposition of the President is shoddy criminal prosecution. The Michael Cohen pleading today is the beginning of a year of conflicts, hearings and court battles. WHY?
We have never impeached a President. Nixon was about to be impeached when Barry Goldwater urged him to resign to save the institution of the presidency. The power of Nixon’s own party was against him. When will the Republicans on the hill, who have that same power, finally wake up and realize that it’s time to think about their own seats? There will be at least 33 Senators up for reelection in 2020.
The House of Representatives has already flipped to Democrat. The Senate will be next. Michael Cohen has flipped and flipped again. How long until others in Trump’s inner circle come to their senses and flip for America.
