Analyst: Cohen Will Provide ‘Sordid and Chilling’ Evidence Against Trump

snip//


“He’s expected to address, first of all, his lies to those congressional committees on the timing of the Trump Tower and Moscow deal, the fact that it was going on much longer than he admitted in public and much longer than Donald Trump acknowledged,” Dilanian told the Morning Joe panel.

Cohen’s plea agreement details the president’s lies about his dealings with Russia during the 2016 campaign, but he’s not allowed to address those issues before the committees because special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation is still pending.

“We could have an absolutely dramatic and riveting performance by Michael Cohen,” Dilanian continued. “While he’s not allowed to talk about the Russia investigation when he appears before the House Oversight Committee on Wednesday, he’s going to talk about sensitive subjects, such as those hush money payments to women.”


The committee is also planning to question Cohen about a myriad of other explosive topics, such as Trump’s violation of campaign finance and tax laws, potential conflicts of interest, and criminal business practices of his family business, the Trump Organization.

“I’m told Cohen has been prepping with this for a long time, and he knows he’s got credibility issues, so he’s coming with documents,” Dilanian said. And then he added:

“He’s got very detailed, sordid and chilling stories of how the president conducts himself behind closed doors.”

“We were told that he has new information that he has given the prosecutors in the Southern District of New York. He has provided those prosecutors documents relating to the Trump Organization that will help those prosecutors in their criminal investigations of the president, his children and his business.”

“And we shouldn’t underestimate how powerful seeing a Trump insider who has been with Donald Trump for more than 10 years telling these stories before the glare of the television lights,” Dilanian added.


When Michael Cohen provides to Congress ‘detailed, sordid and chilling’ evidence against Donald Trump, including documents, the whole world will be watching. The coming week could be the worst week yet in the presidency of Donald Trump.

2. Stand by for a major distraction.

Will it be over Korea, or what? We know he'll try.

We're going to be watching on Wednesday.

6. I'd love to hear him rip the Bloatus in Chief a new .......hole, but I doubt it will happen.

As much as I would like to believe that we’re in for some very entertaining and informative testimony by Cohen, a proven liar, I doubt anything salacious will emerge.

Since Mueller hasn’t handed over the report yet, I doubt anything earth shattering will come out. But we can remain optimistic, as that is what our side wants more than anything else, right? He’ll probably blather on about petty crimes and misdeameanors that won’t add up to a hill of beans.

I’m not as much concerned about Cohen as I am the final Mueller report, with as much information and detail as possible. Possible? Barr? “National Security” ?

I hope that Cohen’s testimony will be juicy, but I doubt it will.

8. he's trying to curry favor for a reduction in jail time so he's voluntarily doing this

i don't see any harm, although you're correct, his credibility is questionable. If his testimony lines up with Mueller's findings then it's more ammo for the Special Counsel against the Idiot.

Things get too heated?? I mean it's kind of weird that something that may be the most politically damaging event to a President in the past 40 years....and both the P and VP are out of the country.

14. They're gonna need a bigger boat!

No way Cohen can describe all this in three days, and once he starts talking, Congress won't be able not to listen!
Stay tuned...

17. Also interesting........

and worth keeping an eye on will be the Repugs that will be out to blast and destroy the credibility of Cohen and defend the honor (sorry, had to gag at that one!) of IQ45. That in itself should make for interesting TV!

18. Wednesday is "must see TV."

Look for Don to distract by withdrawing all U.S. troops from South Korea or deciding to put an embassy in North Korea.
