Must See: Gowdy Rips Backstabbing Lying Cohen
Because attorney-client privilege is apparently no longer a thing, Michael Cohen, President Trump’s former lawyer, is on Capitol Hill this week testifying against his old employer.
The media tells us that his testimony is like a carpet bomb on the Trump Administration, full of explosive and damning revelations that will surely spell doom for the President. Something closer to the opposite is the case.
As Daily Wire writer, Matt Walsh points out, Cohen does not allege that Trump orchestrated the hacking of the DNC. He does not indicate that Trump had any hand in the acquisition or publication of the material. He says only that Trump heard a rumor about it a few days ahead of time. We are supposed to be morally shocked that Trump, the great villain, was pleased by the news.
But why wouldn’t he be pleased? Isn’t any politician pleased to find out that their opponent is about to suffer public embarrassment? Was Trump supposed to get on the horn with the Clinton camp and help them develop a strategy for dealing with the PR crisis? I suppose that would have been sportsmanlike, but sportsmen don’t win elected office in modern America.
Trey Gowdy makes an interesting point that you shouldn’t ignore and that that the only thing Cohen has been consistent and honest about is that there was no collusion. If you watched Cohen’s testimony you were likely overwhelmed by the amount of irrelevant and childish line of questioning and answers from both Cohen and Democrats. See what Mr. Gowdy pulled from all that mangled mess:
Mr. Gowdy isn’t the only Republican to see the truth behind the hailstorm of illusions:
GOP Sen. Lindsey Graham said he believes Michael Cohen’s testimony helped President Trump’s insistence that his campaign did not collude with Russia during the 2016 election.
“If you had to prove collusion using Mr. Cohen, it was a good day for the Trump team. It is clear to me that Mr. Cohen has had a change of heart about Trump. But the central issue has always been did the Trump campaign collude with the Russians. And Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s exchange with Mr. Cohen was pretty devastating to the idea that Trump colluded. Cohen said no — I don’t know … The point is I think on the collusion question Michael Cohen was very helpful to the Trump narrative that there is no evidence of collusion.”
