Its hilarious they find no wrong from a guy like Trump who has lied and cheated
his whole life. Right Wingers please detail how you are OK with him cheating on
his wife ? Or Claiming Bankruptcy to cheat his contractors out of their
paychecks ? I mean if you went to work and on payday was told sorry
you not getting paid would be OK with you ?Or how about coming home
one day and finding out your wife or husband has been fooling around with the
neighbor or his secretary ? That would be OK with you ? Yet you devote your
full allegiance to Trump for standards you wouldn't put with. So Sad
I think Trump is a bad guy. I don't know how any conservatives could vouch
for his character. I think he probably did most of what Cohen said he did to a
lesser or greater extent. Honestly, there isn't proof of collusion still,
nor proof of subornation of perjury. Those are the big ones. The minor charges
with misappropriation of charitable funds, or campaign funds probably won't
meet the rigors of articles of impeachment. But who knows, there's blood in
the water for a Dem-controlled House.All that said, the most ironic
thing here is that the Dems and liberals are literally playing into Trump's
hands. The more they cry fowl, point fingers, label Trump as
"illegitimate", call him a liar, cheat, racist, and everything else, the
more they stir up the republican base. As a libertarian, independent voter
it's actually fascinating to watch...and disturbing. I'm afraid of
another election where I can't stomach either D or R and will have to vote
I or write-in. I pray every day we can be better...but agency has the last word.
I am sick to death of the Democrats & the Russian Probe! Get over it! Vote
Trump out in 1 year. Quit wasting time & money!
How ironic that a known liar who is going to prison and even went so far to tape
his client (our President) without Trump's knowledge, is now calling our
President a liar. This is yet another a sad attempt by the Democrats to try to
smear the President of the United States. We have seen it time and time again.
They're pretty desperate. Also it is a known fact that Cohen was expecting
a position in the President's Administration. No one forced Cohen to commit
the crimes he did and he got caught and is going to prison. He is trying to get
his sentence reduced after being found guilty of his own crimes. Mueller has
come up empty on Russia Collusion by Trump after two years of digging. This is
so sad that our President must continue to deal with this while trying his best
to lead our Country.
Sportsfan123 - Herriman, UTMarch 1, 2019 3:28 p.m."All of
the indictments and convictions have been for lying to the fbi about nothing to
do with russia and for previous crimes committed unrelated to trump."No. Michael Flynn was convicted about lying when asked about his
meetings with Russians. In fact, Jeff Sessions lied about the same thing, as did
Jared Kushner, Trump Jr., Paul Manafort and Richard Gates and others. The only
thing consistent with these people is lying about meeting with Russians. Some
evaded prosecution by amending statements. Others remained defiant and were
indicted.The question is, Why did they lie? Flynn didn't have
to lie. Neither did Sessions. Kushner, Trump Jr., Manafort, and Gates may have
had some other motive to keep their meeting with Russians quiet. Manafort and
Constantine Kilimnic certainly needed to keep their meeting secret since
information was passed to Kilimnic with Russian intelligence ties.This is all separate from the work at the U.S. Attorney's Office,
Southern District of New York which is looking into the Trump Campaign, Trump
Transition, Trump Family, Trump Organization, Trump Foundation and practically
anything else Trump.
emb - Pleasant Grove, UTFeb. 28, 2019 1:44 p.m."If Trump
were such a crook and Cohen such a saint why would he stay for ten
years?"It is a crude assumption thinking that Michael Cohen was
a "saint". He stayed because he was good at his job and he made a lot of
money enabling Donald Trump to do the things he did. Didn't you see the
documents that Cohen produced for the hearing. They were both crooks.It may be that Cohen lied before Congress because Trump wanted him to lie as
he testified when asked why he did what he did. Also, he lied to protect himself
because he may have thought telling the truth would be more harmful to himself.
However, he got caught.Cohen had time to consider the situation he
was in. Perhaps you can understand that facing a stretch in prison can make a
man change his ways. You can consider him a liar and convicted felon, but you
can't dismiss the evidence he produced suggesting the fraud he was involved
with when dealing with Trump. Tax fraud. Bank fraud. Paying off women in
violation of campaign finance laws.We have two liars. Let Trump
produce his financial statements to Deutsche Bank and his tax returns for the
past 20 years.
Sportsfan123 - Herriman, UTMarch 1, 2019 3:28 p.m."Please
provide a list of names of the trump associates individuals indicted and
convicted for colluding with russians in a conspiracy to effect the election in
trumps favor?"You are right. No indictments of Trump campaign
associates have been handed down for colluding with the Russians. We have news
reports of campaign staff and Russians involved in possible conspiracy, but
nothing where an actual indictment has been handed down. The closest we have is
Paul Manafort and Constantine Kilimnik currently under investigation. We have Jared Kushner and Donald Trump Jr (with Manafort) meeting with
Russians to obtain information harmful to the Clinton campaign. Nothing has yet
come from the investigation of Roger Stone. Michael Cohen indicated that Stone
was working with WikiLeaks and Julian Assange through a third person. WikiLeaks
is reported to be a conduit for materials stolen by the Russians.We
also have Kushner reported to have sought a communications back-channel through
the Russian embassy to avoid discovery by the NSA. So, the Mueller investigation
continues and we will see what comes out. It's far from over.
Queen of heartsGus talwyndPlease provide a list of names of
the trump associates individuals indicted and convicted for colluding with
russians in a conspiracy to effect the election in trumps favor?I
watch cnn, msnbc and fox and not one of them are reporting a conviction or
indictments for any individual associated with trumps campaign for conspiring
with russians to throw the election.All of the indictments and
convictions have been for lying to the fbi about nothing to do with russia and
for previous crimes committed unrelated to trump.If anyone of those
persons had already been convicted for russian collusion conspiracy then trump
would have been impeached already.And I have addressed trump is
probably guilty of something but, tax fraud claims finance fraud claims is all
hearsay until proven.You have all missed my point again, and that is
this investigation has yielded nothing in regards to trump russia collusion, but
trump's political oponents used a fake dossier and the U.S. govt to spy on
trump which is exactly what nixon did, based on lies, and now they are hunting
for any crimes not related to russia to bring him down, a witch hunt, I pitty

Sportsfan123 - Herriman, UTMarch 1, 2019 11:05 a.m."So for
the Trump haters out there the one statement that they fail to address is Cohen
stating he has no evidence of trump colluding with russia."Yes,
that is correct. Everyone heard what Michael Cohen had to say, but it is not up
to him to determine that issue. This is for Robert Mueller and no one knows what
he has. However, we do know that members of the Trump campaign conspired and
colluded with the Russians since we have numerous convictions and indictments.
Mueller isn't finished and appears to have more to do.However,
you don't address the criminal conspiracy which Cohen outlined he was
involved with and the role Individual-1 played in that conspiracy. In fact, we
learn again, months after the NYTimes article on how the Trump family build its
wealth on tax fraud schemes, where Trump used inflating his net worth to procure
bank loans and deflating the value of his properties to secure lower taxes.countryvoice3 - Salt Lake City, UT (March 1, 2019 8:12 a.m.) describes
this criminal fraud succinctly with Trump manipulating the system for his own
advantage. This should be of concern to every American tax payer.

out these last two years? Much of this you won't find on Fox News. That
organization is a propaganda mill for Donald Trump, so maybe you don't know
what is going on here, right?The Russian collusion investigation
involves Robert Mueller and his team of prosecutors and investigators. So far it
has been demonstrated that members of Trump's campaign conspired and
colluded with the Russians to interfere with our election in 2016. There have
been multiple convictions and many indictments handed down so far. Perhaps there
is nothing yet on Trump himself, but we have learned from Michael Cohen that
Trump often distances himself from the activities of subordinates who carry out
his wishes through a "code" of indicating what he wants.However, the much greater threat, according to Chris Christie, is the U.S.
Attorney's Office with the Southern District of New York. Pay attention.

something, just like hillary personally financing the DNC thru 2016 elections
talk about a conflict of interest, and lying to congress, but these will have to
be proven in court the burden of proof is on the accuser and investigators.However, infidility is not a federal crime, and seeking dirt on a
political oponent even if it comes from russia isn't either.So
for the Trump haters out there the one statement that they fail to address is
Cohen stating he has no evidence of trump colluding with russia. The original
scope of this investigation is russia trump collusion and obviously based on the
direction of the indictments and convictions in this investigation of which not
one has anything to do with russian conspiracy.An obvious witch

@ worf"Democrats should be sued for defamation of

"Pursuit of this line of questioning paralleled fellow Rep. Lacy Clay (D,
MO) questions concerning instances in which Trump inflated his assets in order
to obtain loans from Deutsche Bank"Here's the example from
Cohen documents and public documents. Trump owns a house in upstate
New York that he has used on financial statements since the late 90's. He
bought it for 7.5 million (public). He used it as an asset on statements after
2012 and valued it at between 25 and 50 million. A swing but hey..Then the same
house on a financial statement submitted to Deutsche Bank for a billion dollar
loan listed the homes value at 291 million dollars. The next year in his
financial statement he had to fill out to run for office he listed the home
again at 25 to 50 million. That's bank fraud. This is
supported by public records. So we now have records supporting campaign finance
fraud and bank fraud. Collusion is the least of this mans worries.
Absolutely Amazing even after all the testimony of tax fraud, infidelity and

We haven't forgot Trump hasn't disclosed his tax filing

to believe that two people looking at the same information could not under any
circumstances come to up with different conclusions. One of the people must be
"low information".... aka we all know what that is implying.The reason we have a 12 person jury system is that it assumes 12 people will
see the same evidence from different perspectives, and it will take all 12 to
interpret that evidence the same way to get a guilty verdict. It is a high bar.
And for good reasons.The idea that ones own viewpoint is the only

with Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D, NY) began her questioning of Michael
Cohen? It was very straightforward and without ambiguity. She asked about Donald
Trump devaluing his golf resort properties to avoid paying local real estate
taxes. It was very easy to follow as she inquired about possible tax fraud. Ms Ocasio-Cortez started by referencing Trump Link, a golf course in the
Bronx which was built with $127 million in taxpayer funds which allowed the
Trump Organization to keep the first four years of revenue. How this
questionable arrangement came about was not explained. However, she did focus on
Trump National Golf Club in Jupiter, FL, as an example of Trump's alleged
deflation of his financial assets in order to lower his tax burden.Pursuit of this line of questioning paralleled fellow Rep. Lacy Clay (D, MO)
questions concerning instances in which Trump inflated his assets in order to
obtain loans from Deutsche Bank. Cohen confirmed that Trump had provided
inflated asset assessments to an insurance company in the past.[more]Page 1 of 2
Page 2 of 2Tax fraud is a criminal act. Submitting inflated
valuations of net worth to obtain a financial loan is bank fraud. These are two
of the charges for which Cohen pleaded guilty and will go to prison. Now we have
a line of investigation into Trump allegedly committing the same crimes to
further his own fortune.A humorous side story, according to Cohen,
is how Trump used these inflated valuations of his net worth to be listed on the
Forbes listing of wealthy men as part of his need to appear extremely rich. It
was all part of the persona for the Trump brand. So much so that Trump would
threaten to sue people who questioned his wealth according to news sources.
I love the so called impartial comments calling President Trump a liar and for
us to research for ourselves what may or may not be true. Lets review some
facts about honest politics LBJ - the gulf of Tonkin incident was a lie and 60k
American Soldiers lost thier lives while Mr Johnson and family became very
wealthy. Carter - just plain incompetent. WJ Clinton - Lewinski, and.at least
4 other metoo'ers with very serious criminal charges. Convicted of lying
to grand jury and was disbarred. BH Obama - I watched live as 4 dead Americans
were returned to Andrews AFB, as Susan Rice, Hillary Clinton and obama all lied
to our faces stating their deaths reulted from a fake video release. Innocent
protesters just happend to have rocket propelled grenades. (Hope they got
background checks). US Ambassador to the UN Samantha Power used FISA illegally
to check private US citizens working for various campaigns. She stated there
were many that were forged. Regardless it was illegal.Dont tell us
to do our research! There are more. Republicans were too chicken for fear of
racist accusations. BTW many of these so called likes are from

Utah Girl is 100% correct. Anyone who isn't tracking on the decades-long

potentially criminal campaign finance violations (among a list of other sordid
things), clearly hasn't been paying enough attention to warrant comment on

his prison time ahead, is trying to come clean with the hope that he can win a
shorter sentence and rebuild his life. One aspect that is quite
revealing is how soon after the Benghazi hearings we witness Republicans in

You know, a day after GOP politicians spent hours castigating Cohen for the
egregious sin of lying to Congress, it's fascinating seeing some of the
same ones today applauding Oliver North at CPAC.Spare us the
outrage. Cohen's going to jail in part for perjury, and acknowledged as
much every single time someone called him out as a liar as a way to avoid the
substantive issue: that Cohen lied in the service of the man occupying the Oval
Those who waste their time condemning Cohen as a liar seem to overlook two key
points.First, as an enabler for Trump, Cohen lied because he
frequently had a motive to lie, but as a witness before Congress, Cohen has a
motive to tell the truth, because lying will lengthen his prison term.Second, the most valuable and believable testimony in many criminal cases is
provided by "liars" who have turned against the crook who is on trial.
I find no joy in saying that I have more respect for a convicted felon can I do

Cohen accused Trump of at least 6 felonies: bank fraud, tax fraud, insurance
fraud, abetting perjury, campaign finance violations and colluding with
Russia.He provided tangible evidence for 5 of those felonies.After 7 hours of testimony, not a single Republican defended Trump. Not
a single member of congress disputed any of the evidence Cohen brought.What are Republicans going to do when Trump’s CFO testifies?

against Socialism, which is why I support him. I support his policies more than

they are filled with a very patronizing, self-righteous indignation that is
hypocritical at best and unimportant at worst! Whether Trump finally gets
thrown under the bus or not, the battle for the Constitution, natural rights,
and freedom will go on with many patriotic Americans. George Washington had to
contend with half the Americans that wanted nothing to do with a new nation. It
is the same today.
Yet another Political Spectacle and still no Collusion .... What a sad complete
waste of time and money for this Country ....
Cohen is a convicted felon, disbarred lawyer, and desperate man about to go to
prison. While our borders are unsafe and lead to American and Mexican deaths,
while our national debt soars above $22 Trillion, while China is taking over the
world - The Dems want a National Enquirer Congress to spend hours
with a convicted felon for political theater.May God continue to
bless and protect President Trump - a working man and woman's president
freeing more people from poverty than any prior president. MAGA
@impartial"I don't expect, even Trump loyalists, to buy
this."They will. Oh believe me, they will.
The convicted liar returns for another round of lying before going to prison.
My favorite part of the hearing was seeing the GOP representative from West
Virginia complain about the hearing being a waste of time and taxpayer money. I
wonder, why didn't she complain about the 13 Benghazi investigations that
turned up, um, nothing. That was pure political posturing. This was part of a
serious investigation into the behavior of a demonstrably corrupt president. My,
how far the GOP has fallen. To defend Trump is a steep road to irrelevance.
Calling Trump a liar is like calling the sun hot.
"Later, Trump, speaking at a press conference in Vietnam after the summit
with Kim ended early, said he was a "little impressed" that Cohen told
Congress there was "no collusion" between his presidential campaign and
Russia."Funny how Trump labels Cohen as a liar and talking
"to stay out of prison" (not happening.) Except when Cohen said
something that Trump liked, then, he's not lying and should be believed. I
expect this from Trump. I don't expect, even Trump loyalists, to buy this.
Cohen is more honest than Trump and now has higher ratings.
Congressman Cummings closing was epic.
