Michael Cohen is poised to do his damndest to undermined President Donald Trump later this afternoon, in front of a frothing gaggle of bipartisan lawmakers.
Cohen’s expected testimony will likely draw some incredibly unfortunate pictures of Donald Trump’s behavior, specifically during the 2016 campaign, and particularly how the now-President handled the incredibly nonsensical demands of extortionist adult film actress Stormy Daniels.
For the leftist media, this will appear to be celebrated as though it were Fat Tuesday on the Gulf Coast.
Michael Cohen is prepared to share who signed the $35,000 monthly checks he received in reimbursement for his hush-money payments to Stormy Daniels, according to a person with knowledge of his upcoming congressional testimony. Cohen is expected to bring documentation revealing who signed the checks, according to that source.
The checks are important because Cohen pleaded guilty to violating campaign-finance laws by facilitating those payments, which went to porn star Stormy Daniels to buy her silence about an alleged sexual encounter with Donald Trump. The efforts to repay him for that disbursement could spell legal trouble for the person who signed the checks.
And, of course:
Cohen is also prepared to testify that he has evidence President Donald Trump committed crimes during his time in office, according to that person.
Cohen has a major problem, however: He is a known and admitted liar, and a “fixer”-type lawyer whose grasp on the vagaries of legalese will impact just how Americans experience his testimony.
In other words, Cohen has a reputation as a slimy, semantically shrewd lawyer who is facing a lengthy prison sentence already, and will be very obviously working to save what’s left of his skin while in the hot seat later today.
As entertaining as the testimony may become, we mustn’t forget the circumstances that led the cagey Cohen to Congress, and how this will affect his willingness to throw the President under the bus.
