Michael Cohen Warns Republicans: “I did the same thing you’re doing now.”

Cohen then offers a remarkable warning to the Republicans on the committee as to what happens to those who stand by Trump.

“I did the same thing that you’re doing now for ten years. I protected Mr. Trump for ten years,” Cohen says.

“Look what’s happened to me.”

Cohen adds: “The more people that suffer Donald Trump, as I did blindly, are going to suffer the same consequences that I did.”

2. WP article - Cohen warns Republicans: Pledge allegiance to Trump, you'll end up like me

There was a moment during Michael Cohen’s testimony Wednesday before the House Oversight Committee, about two hours into the hearing, that landed like a thud.

After a relentless battering from Republican lawmakers over his established dishonesty, including lying to Congress, Cohen called them out for carrying President Trump’s water. He pointed to a poster board that a Republican lawmaker had put up with the words “LIAR LIAR PANTS ON FIRE!” next to a supersize photo of Cohen.

“It’s that sort of behavior that I’m responsible for. I’m responsible for your silliness because I did the same thing that you’re doing now for 10 years,” he told the Republican committee members. “I protected Mr. Trump for 10 years.”

Cohen is heading to prison for three years for several crimes, some of which he says he committed to protect Trump. He’s not suggesting Republicans will end up behind bars for their loyalty to Trump, but he does seem to be cautioning that their reputations could be forever damaged if they continue to defend the president indiscriminately.

Cohen noted during one of several heated exchanges with Rep. Jim Jordan (Ohio), the Oversight Committee’s ranking Republican, that the GOP lawmakers didn’t seem interested in learning anything about Trump or his conduct. They were just trying to discredit Cohen.

“I just find it interesting, sir, that between yourself and your colleagues, that not one question so far … has been asked about President Trump,” Cohen said. “That’s actually why I thought I was coming today.”

3. I will remember this as vividly as " What did the President know and when did he know it?"

Somethings just make history.
