Mueller CLEARED Cohen to speak before Congress next month.





Shimon Prokupecz

@ShimonPro
Little clue: Elijah Cummings, chairman of House Oversight, said Mueller cleared Michael Cohen to testify before his panel. “He cleared it.”




So, to the Rethugs who are complaining that this will disrupt the investigation:





ON UPDATE:

"When in the minority, Chairman Cummings and the Democrats have often cautioned against such actions," he added. "Now that Chairman Cummings is in charge, the same standards don't seem to apply. This makes clear that Chairman Cummings and the Democrats will do whatever it takes to attack this President."

Rep. Mark Meadows (R-N.C.), chairman of the House Freedom Caucus, characterized Cummings as a lawmaker “I have a great deal of respect for.” But Meadows sharply questioned the Democrats’ decision to call Cohen to testify.

“For months we’ve heard Democrats [say], ‘Do not have witnesses come in here. You’re going to interfere with the Mueller investigation.’ And I find it just extremely ironic that the very first witness he would call in is someone that is central to … the Mueller investigation,” Meadows said.

SNIP

Cummings told reporters there would be "limitations" on lawmakers questions so as not to interfere with Mueller's investigation.

6. I don't really like Mueller showing any of his cards

But he is a smart man. I trust his judgement. Also understand questions will be limited to not compromise the investigation.

10. I've said it before and I'll say it again

One way or another, Trump will be gone by March 31st. Two months of investigative and court pressure will make him fold faster than a cheap lawn chair.

12. Mueller is basically done with Cohen,

yeah he can still cooperate, but being sentenced is a pretty good tell.

This is going to be a dagger in Trump's heart, being humiliated and brought down in public. I hope Mueller let's him talk about the Russian collusion. It turned my stomach every time mfTrump said no collusion.

I suppose the Freedumb caucus will try to discredit Cohen to no avail.

I am still predicting a nervous breakdown for Trump, he needs to double up on the Adderall, his orange skin is fading.

13. Turn on the lights and the roaches scatter.

Meadows is worried about losing his job. I'm here to tell you, he needs to be worried. He's a teabagger from a gerrymandered district. Boehner called him "an idiot."
He tried to get Boehner removed.
Also...
Meadows has been described as playing an important part of the United States federal government shutdown of 2013.[24][25][26] On August 21, 2013 Meadows wrote an open letter to House Speaker John Boehner and Majority Leader Eric Cantor encouraging them to "affirmatively de-fund the implementation and enforcement of Obamacare in any relevant appropriations bills brought to the House floor in the 113th Congress, including any continuing appropriations bill."[27][28] The document was signed by 79 of Meadows' colleagues in the House.[24][28] Heritage Action (which opened operations in North Carolina in January 2011[29]), ran critical Internet advertisements in the districts of 100 Republican lawmakers who failed to sign the letter by Meadows.[30] The letter has been described as being controversial within the Republican Party.[24][31]


He's also a sexual predator.

Thanks for the post, pnwmom. Stay encouraged. ♡

14. Thank you for the background on Meadows.

Yes, it has been a little easier to slept at night since Nancy took the gavel.

19. Meadows' chief of staff Kenny West is the predator and Meadows was recently fined $40,625

Thanks for posting- I just went in to Meadows' Wikipedia and edited the section that had said investigation was "still pending" of Meadow and his chief of staff West over harrassment, since Meadows was fined last November for having kept West on salary after he had been removed from contact with staffers after the credible allegations were made.

I hope for a brutal, completey unredacted and uncesored testimony. It is needed for media to bite and broadcast live on every channel.
