Cohen delivers riveting warning to Trump’s GOP enablers: You’ll ‘suffer the same consequences that I’m suffering’ now

27 Feb 2019 at 12:39 ET


Michael Cohen delivered a powerful warning to congressional Republicans running interference for President Donald Trump.

The former Trump Organization lawyer told GOP members of the House Oversight Committee that they were debasing themselves for the president, just as he had done for years, and he warned they, too, would one day regret it.

“There is a recurring refrain in your testimony that says, ‘and yet I continued to work for him,'” said Rep. Jim Cooper (D-TN). “But at some point you changed. What was the breaking point at which you decided to start telling the truth?”

Cohen said several factors had convinced him to turn on his longtime boss, for whom he infamously vowed to take a bullet.

“There are several factors — Helsinki, Charlottesville, watching the daily destruction of our civility to one another, putting up silly things like this,” Cohen said. “Really unbecoming of Congress. 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.”.........................

1. Bingo

No substance from them, only haranguing of the witness.

2. Warning

“I can only warn people, the more people that follow Mr. Trump as I did, blindly, are going to suffer the same consequences that I’m suffering,” Cohen said.

4. The republicans

Didn't learn anything from the Mid terms it looks like now. The longer they enable trump the more likely they'll lose more seats in the House, and the Senate control , and the office of the Presidency. Their hole they've dug themselves into is about to cave in in them completely, and they will regret doing this today to someone telling the truth to them they don't want to hear. The American people will once again show them what they think in 2020 when the next election gets here. It won't be pretty for the gop or trump.

12. THIS

needs to be included with EVERY article/mention that is made about the Repug complaints about this hearing.
Since the MSM likes to do the "equal-time" thing, let's indeed show "equal time" in the coverage!

24. EXCELLENT point. And well worth repeating.

And how long (and how much) did CHILD SEXUAL PREDATOR JEFFREY EPSTEIN’S ATTORNEY Ken Starr spend on all things Clinton - before finally stumbling on a stained blue dress? I kinda forget but the figures 4-years-and-70-some-odd-million-dollars stick in my head.

14. Question is though is he really turning on him? After all so far there has not been anything truly

devastating that's been revealed about Trump so it could be is simply revealing whats largely known to keep something even worse hidden.

19. Well, maybe as far as his time around Melania has been, maybe

she was very nice to him, in his perception. He could be telling the truth on that.
