Donny Deutsch throwaway comment: We may find out if someone told Cohen to lie.

I was listening to Ari Melber's show last night when he had Donny Deutsch on. Deutsch is friends with Cohen. Deutsch made a comment that no one focused on and I haven't seen posted on DU. He said something like "We may also find out if Cohen lied on his own or was told to lie."

This hasn't gotten a lot of attention, but I'm pretty sure it's illegal to instruct somebody to lie to Congress and investigators. And if someone told Cohen to lie, then who is it? I suspect that's the "bigger fish" they are after.

1. As "bigger fishes" go, I honestly think we're talking about a Whale Shark here.

2. If Cohen taped it

and it was Party 1, then that should be all she wrote.

3. Deutsch has talked to Cohen throughout.

He said he talked to him several times this week. I have noticed that Deutsch is spinning FOR Cohen at times, trying to rehabilitate him now. But what he says is interesting.

4. Donnie Deutsch said quite a mouthful.

I was driving and listening. Among the noteworthy observations: this won’t be over when his “pResidency*” is. Prosecutors will start piling on, chipping away at his “empire” til there isn’t much left. (He actually said “nothing”, not “isn’t much”, but I don’t want to get my hopes up too high). And he further speculated there’d be another 20 years of prosecutions to follow.

What was that quote about the wheels of justice turning very slowly?

6. You think Cohen went to testify to Congress with no WH prep?

Of course he went over what he was going to say to Congress before hand. The only question is whether Trump was there.

9. All of the Trump gang understood from the beginning they should lie about any Russian contacts

the whole gang including Hope Hicks, Flynn, Kushner, Don Jr. and Cohen, have lied from the beginning so they must have all been instructed by someone to keep all the Russia contacts hushed up. So they all had to know there was potential illegality involved with Russia conniving. Obvious common denominator is Big Daddy T.
