Cohen has been CONVICTED of lying...and you still swear by every word out of his mouth....this time.

For the benefit of Trump.  Glad to hear Cohen state that.

Yep, everyone on earth is lying, except for Donald Trump.

The fact that they were in contact and prepared ahead of time supports this further.

re: All the "why believe a liar" nonsense

To be fair, what else can a Trump supporter possibly say right now?

No one likes admitting they were wrong.

So your position is that the Deep State is making Cohen say the things he's saying?

That's what you truly believe?

Hey, Comey got fired, McCabe got fired...what kind of investigation can it be when the top two guys end up getting fired by the guy they're investigating? Makes perfect sense (to 34% of the country).

I truly hope this gets some people to wake up to the real charade in this country, which is the GOP gaslighting. Such sad theatrics. Every one of these goons who pariticipates in the partisan attacks to obstruct the truth is a coward, and does a disservice to all we are supposed to stand for as a nation.

Amazing statement by Cohen. I did for Trump for 10 years what you’re [GOP] doing now!

Following this loosely, but I couldn't help but laugh out loud in my office at the R from AZ. Mispronouncing things left and right. "Liar liar pants on fire." That was an embarrassing mess.

See, I don't think they believe Trump at this point. I think they know there was some shady stuff going on, at the very least.

IMO the people here are just keeping the act going. Not going to let the liberals think they were actually right all along.

But I think they know.

That was as bad of an owning as I've seen in a long time.  Wow.  I hope that every single one of them took a second to realize that he's 100% right.

"Everybody's job at the Trump organization is to protect Mr. Trump.  Every day most of us knew we were coming in and we were going to lie for him on something, and that became the norm. And that's exactly what's happening right now in this country and it's exactly what's happening here in government. "

Who was going after Deutsche Bank - was that Mueller or Congress?

 

Makes sense in line with Cohen's statements that someone is going after Trump Org for bank fraud.

If what Cohen is saying is "not connected to any truth", why aren't the Republicans tearing apart what he is saying rather than just rehashing stuff that is already known about him and his past?  It's almost like they don't want to be in the same area code as anything he is claiming about Trump, maybe because they KNOW it's the truth.

Jim Jordan says he's never heard of a lawyer who doesn't get paid like Lanny Davis. Maybe that's true of Republican lawyers, but my father, like thousands of lawyers, represented many clients who couldn't afford to pay him.

Not often I agree with Chris Christie but - 

 

Chris Christie on Michael Cohen testimony: "There hasn't been one Republican yet who's tried to defend the president on the substance. I think that's something that should be concerning to the White House."

Exactly my take too.  Between him calling the R's out for the silliness (that he started) and the description that all employees are there to protect Trump seemed raw and unfiltered when you watch him actually say it.

"he's a liar" is the bar?  that's what they are going with?  I am disappointed, but not all that surprised...look at their leader.  :kicksrock: 

The worst part about this whole thing is they should easily be able to poke holes in his testimony, but they don't seem to have any interest in what he's saying today.  Should be simple enough to discredit him with his own "lies" he's throwing out there today.  That's what we taught in 6th grade debate class.
