The impending congressional testimony of Michael Cohen, the former Trump attorney who is apparently willing to say anything to lessen his prison sentence, is now the foundation upon which House Democrats intend to draw articles of impeachment against President Trump, an act Democrats and the media intend to use to bludgeon the president with should he choose to run for re-election in 2020.
Cohen to Testify That Trump Engaged in Criminal Conduct While in Office
President’s ex-lawyer will tell House committee he witnessed Trump’s ‘lies, racism and cheating,’ role in hush payments, says a person familiar with his plans
Michael Cohen, Donald Trump’s former lawyer, will for the first time publicly accuse the president of criminal conduct while in office related to a hush-money payment to a porn star, a person familiar with his planned testimony before Congress said.
Appearing on Wednesday before the House Oversight Committee, Mr. Cohen also will make public some of Mr. Trump’s private financial statements and allege that Mr. Trump at times inflated or deflated his net worth for business and personal purposes, including avoiding paying property taxes, the person said. The financial statements were developed by Mr. Trump’s accountant, the person said. The Wall Street Journal hasn’t seen those statements.
Mr. Cohen’s testimony is expected to focus on his “behind-the-scenes” accounts of working for Mr. Trump for over a decade, a period during which Mr. Cohen will say he witnessed “lies, racism and cheating” by Mr. Trump, the person said.
Mr. Cohen is expected to recount racist remarks Mr. Trump allegedly made to him, including instances in which Mr. Trump allegedly questioned the intelligence of African-Americans and criticized their lifestyle choices, the person said.
It must be noted that the above “person familiar” with Mr. Cohen’s plans who is now aggressively leaking those plans to the media now, is most likely Lanny Davis, the longtime Democrat legal operative closely linked to the Clinton Machine. (Davis served in the Clinton White House and was later a surrogate for both the failed Hillary Clinton presidential campaigns.) All signs point to Davis as being the primary orchestrator of the Cohen testimony being the jumping off point for the impending “Impeach Trump” plan by House Democrats and the Establishment Media. Anti-Trump social media ad buys scheduled to coincide with Cohen’s testimony tomorrow are said to already be in the millions of dollars.
The political climate in D.C. is about to get very-very ugly, though, there are whispers said to come from the Trump legal team that Lanny Davis, Michael Cohen, and House Democrats are badly over-playing their hand.
We shall soon see.
