Trump Doth Protest Too Much, Methinks

Touched By An Angel, or at least a Fed.

CNN:

(CNN)President Donald Trump spoke more extensively during the presidential election with his-then attorney Michael Cohen about the proposed Trump Tower project in Moscow than Cohen admitted to Congress last year, Cohen said while pleading guilty Thursday in federal court to a charge from special counsel Robert Mueller’s office… Cohen, who previously said talks about the Moscow project had ended in January 2016, just prior to the Iowa caucuses, said he had lied out of a sense of obligation to Trump.

Cohen admitted he:

  • had multiple conversations about the project until June 2016
  • briefed members of the Trump Crime Family about those conversations
  • agreed to travel to Russia to discuss the project and raise the possibility of Trump doing the same

And of course, Comrade Prznint Stupid has consistently denied he had any bidness in Russia. We turned to the essential Factbase tool to search for Trump saying “I have nothing to do with Russia” and here’s just a few samples of what we found:

Speech is dated July 27, 2016, so about a month AFTER Cohen says that the project stopped.

Speech is dated Oct. 24, 2016

Speech is dated Oct. 26 2016

Speech is dated Oct. 27 2016

Speech is dated Feb. 16, 2017

And we can go on and on. Could Cohen be lying to Mueller, well I suppose so – he even has plead guilty to lying — but to what end?

    I don’t have anything clever or snarky to say. I just pray that we succeed in getting this criminal out of office as soon as possible. He really should spend the rest of his life in solitary.

    The GOP has hitched its wagon to a crime boss. It’s more a RICO entity than a political party.

    I already get the idea and besides, that’s way more Trump that I will willingly expose myself to on any one day. Also, too, I am maintaining believable deniability in case I’m chosen for the jury on one of Trump’s many upcoming trials.

    Someone please explain to me how a US Presidential candidate can run for office here and at the same time build a hotel in Russia? How is this not Criminal, if not Treasonous?
