Who has more to gain by continuing to lie? The answer is as orange as it is obvious.

A fair number have already made up their minds and nothing will change the perceptions.

Speaking, of course, of the minions.

Despite the Matt Gaetz (who once wore orange!) threatening tweet, Cohen looked better and happier than he has in a very long time when he left the Senate closed hearing.

I’m beginning to warm up to Mr. Cohen; heaven help me.

“I’m going to let the American people decide exactly who is telling the truth.”

The funny thing is that the American people already know both men are constant liars.

However, we also know that both men have been telling Trump’s lies, to protect Trump. That universally-known fact serves to enhance Cohen’s credibility (on these topics) while undermining Donald’s. In court, I think it’s known as a statement against interest.

I wonder whether Cohen’s testimony could damage Trump so badly that it peels away Senate support for Trump’s wall…

I think the problem here is this: It doesn’t matter.

There will be no outcome, there will be no upshot. There will be no repercussions.

Unless there are a pair of handcuffs somewhere in Orange Moron’s future, it doesn’t matter.

I don’t know if anyone stayed up or woke up and has been seeing the advance copy of his remarks but OMG he’s confirming everything. Bottom line: Trump knew and it’s a conspiracy to defraud the United States. Bonus bottom line: everything else, it would seem. He’s giving it up.

Doesn’t make any difference. On the inside of jail, everyone’s a lawyer, just sayin.

I’m not sure about “everything”. One part that’s missing for me is what were they planning to do with the millions (that we know about) that Essential Consultants LLC took in from various corporations looking to pay for access to the president? EC LLC paid out the hush money to three women (again, that we know about), but it took in a lot more money than that. What other payments did EC LLC make?

Aargh fine everything in that he’s hitting the highlights, not everything as in everything the bastard was ever accused or suspected of, OK? :smile: He knew about the Wikileaks drop beforehand, because Stone called him and kept him in the loop and Cohen heard the call. He was explicitly lying about the Trump Tower Moscow negotiations. He directed the payments to Stormy, knowingly not declaring it as a campaign contribution. He committed crimes as president. Various prosecutors can and will look at the shakedowns you reference but damn, let’s focus, this is a human voice saying “He did this and this and this.” That’s huge in persuasion and credibility terms. Huge because never mind Cohen’s credibility, everyone including his supporters knows Trump is crooked as a dog’s hind leg.
