Loyalty to Trump cost Michael Cohen everything. Republicans pay heed

“Cohen had a warning for the Republican stooges sitting in front of him. They were in danger of becoming just like him.

“I’m responsible for your silliness because I did the same thing that you’re doing now for 10 years,” he said. “I protected Mr Trump for 10 years.””

Loyalty to Don Cheeto is a one way street. He will never be loyal in return.

If you are loyal to Don Cheeto, your best case scenario is to end up like Chris Christie. Too dirty to hire, turned into a punchline; but not charged with any crimes.

At least you can make a few bucks selling your book.

Read Michael Cohen’s opening statement here

“To be clear: Mr. Trump knew of and directed the Trump Moscow negotiations throughout the campaign and lied about it. He lied about it because he never expected to win the election. He also lied about it because he stood to make hundreds of millions of dollars on the Moscow real estate project.

And so I lied about it, too – because Mr. Trump had made clear to me, through his personal statements to me that we both knew were false and through his lies to the country, that he wanted me to lie. And he made it clear to me because his personal attorneys reviewed my statement before I gave it to Congress.”

He is confirming what we know.

So when the totally predictable happens and the GOP reacts to felonies by a sitting GOP executive by dismissing it as a distraction and circling the wagons to protect the party, remember this is the 4th time since Watergate they’ve done this.
