Trump's ex-lawyer Michael Cohen will testify at House Oversight Committee before entering prison

Source: CNBC

Michael Cohen, the former personal lawyer and fixer for President Donald Trump, has agreed to testify before the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee in February -- a month before beginning to serve a three-year prison sentence for a range of crimes which include ones related to Trump.

Cohen's planned Feb. 7 appearance is voluntary. He said Thursday it will give him the opportunity "to give a full and credible acount of the events that have transpired."

The hearing will come two-and-a-half months months after he pleaded guilty to lying to Congress in 2017 about details of an aborted Trump real-estate project in Moscow, Russia.

Last week, the House of Representatives and its committees came under the control of the new Democratic majority, which has vowed to use its power to investigate a range of controversies involving the Republican Trump and his administration.

It will be an OPEN hearing. This is going to be good.

13. This could prove to be a block buster with millions world wide watching.

Boy, oh boy, Stormy sure lived up to her name. I love her. She tells it like it is and makes no damn excuses how she makes her living. She sure is a breath of fresh air in the political smog that we a choking in. I would trust her before I would ever trust some Bible Beating sanctimonious back stabbing Republican bleached blond bitch. You know that lady and her sewing group who are having an affair with the shop keeper in the village and the preacher to boot. Ole mushroom Dick didn't want he was getting into.

Stormy isn't a tropical depression, she is a a full blown category five hurricane. Here is one ole fart with, my lady on my arm, that would buy her a drink anytime. In fact my lady would probably tell the bar keep to make that a double. You could choke on the hypocrisy of this gang.

5. This list will grow a lot

Of willing people who'll testify against trump and all the others involved before the House , and for the public to hear. trump will be damaged goods for donors , and voters, and other Congressional republicans . He has to know now his downfall is in the near future, and he can't stop it. Is he only sticking around now to raise funds for his legal bills?

6. Michael Cohen's statement to CNN:

In a statement to CNN, Cohen said he agreed to testify "in furtherance of my commitment to cooperate and provide the American people with answers."

"I look forward to having the privilege of being afforded a platform with which to give a full and credible account of the events which have transpired," Cohen said.

7. This is huge folks

This is OJ Simpson trial stuff. Trump being humiliated, brought down in publc. Trump has to be sick right now. Cohenís testimony can be used for impeachment. I suggest Trump have a nervous breakdown.

29. Flee

I think Trumpís been offshoring Trump Organization money. He apparently hasnít been paying suppliers. I think he got that $1billion brokerage fee for Putinís sale of 19% of Rosneft to Qatar. I think Mueller will let him and his family leave the country if they do so quietly.

8. SAVE THE DATE!

Trump will see jail before Cohen. But Trump will resign before jail with a plea deal, Cohen will go free. The countdown to February 7th begins..

A man can dream, can't I? And if two people dream. And then three, and then four. But in the beginning, I gotta believe it could happen. It's plausible though not likely. But not impossible either.

11. Cohen wants revenge. The cult /base will start to turn on POTUS too!

Thank you Cohen! The fucking moron is shutting bricks right now and will be making dangerous distractions now due to it. Duck and cover. This will be like John Dean and Nixon. The Dems Congress is doing a great job right out of the gate. They don't need to wait for Mueller's report to finish and be released to turn the public against him. Seeing Cohen, hearing new info that no one has heard before and knowing that tRump knew about Russia and was working with them is like an early Christmas, birthday, July 4th, etc for the country as a whole.

27. I am curious as to his motivation

I really don't understand why he would be doing it, unless as you stated, revenge.

Peace

That was a nice cherry on top of this news.

15. So, is Michael Cohen safe? Mob (russian/trump) hits? Promises of pardons and $$$$?

Why do I feel some trepidation about this happening as planned, and being a good thing?

20. Republicans Will Focus On His Lies

And attempt to show him to not be a reliable witness so he needs to bring documents with him to support his testimony.

22. That's possible, and has been discussed on CNN and MSNBC since this broke. They're saying...

...that trump and republicans will claim he's a convicted liar, etc., but expect that Cohen will point out that he lied on behalf of trump as his lawyer.

Calling him a liar could backfire.

25. The biggest thing will be Cohen telling Americans how

Trump operates, that he's personally involved in every decision and always knows what's going on. He's going to tell America that Trump, Manafort and Stone have been friends for decades, too. He's going to describe the roles the Trump kids and Weisselberg all play in the organization.
