AFTERMATH: KANSAS CITY TALKS MICHAEL COHEN TESTIMONY AGAINST PREZ TRUMP



As promised, our morning discussion yielded a few decent insights worthy of consideration.

Locally, news station are counting on eggheads and partisan pundits for perspective . . .

Fox4: Metro professors sound off about Cohen hearings, question former Trump attorney’s credibility

Here at TKC, we turn to our community of miscreants, know-it-alls, sportos, motorheads, geeks, sluts, bloods, wastoids, dweebies and dickheads for real life opinion.

Not so surprisingly, we got a pretty impressive sample of opinion with alternative perspective mixed in as well.

Testimony & The Big Picture


"This guy is already sentenced to three years in jail for lying to congress but libs are out there excited about his 'testimony' today which amounts to nothing."


Kansas City Witnesses Morality Play


"One thing the Republican party has done is cashed in that party of morals bullshit chip for all of eternity and it's because of Donald Trump."


Chuck Talks Conspiracy


"The real story, that the media and certainly the House of Representatives is NOT interested in, is the irrefutable, premeditated conspiracy amongst the Deep State . . . And previous administration, that, with criminal intent, sought to frame the incoming and then sitting president with a crime, fabricated ex nihilo (With - again irrefutable evidence of cooperation of Russian agents.) in order to subvert the 2016 election and the will of the electorate."


Russian Connection Considered


"I'm gonna hold off on the Russian Collusion judgement until Mueller provides results. There's a lot of other criminals providing details there. My guess is, whatever is said Republicans won't care because they like taking money from Russian oligarchs connected to Vlad. Fucking pathetic what this country has come to. A (former) KGB agent sowing discord and Republicans playing right into it."


Rights & Wrongs Against Prez Trump


"The Progressive campaign against the Constitution continues today with the suspension of Attorney Client Privilege."


The World According To Byron


"Trump has brought most of this on himself with his absolute refusal to criticize Putin & his treasonous Helsinki news conference where he chose Putin's word over the investigations of his intelligence agency. This is why McCabe began his investigation of Trump as a national security risk."


Prez Trump Typecast?!?!


"You can't tell me with a straight face that Cohen said anything today that you wouldn't think "yeah, that sounds like something Trump would do". Putting aside the stuff that Cohen had evidence to support."

Further reading from both sides, we tried to find a bit of balance but it was harder than usual today. And so, here are the news links that piqued our interest more than any others:



Slate: Democratic Lawmaker Goes Viral for Epic Eye Roll During Cohen Hearing

NBC: Michael Cohen to Congress - 'I am not protecting Mr. Trump anymore'

Biz Insider: 'You think I'm stupid, I'm not going to Vietnam': Trump allegedly told Michael Cohen there was no chance of him deploying during the Vietnam War

CNN: 8 things I learned from Michael Cohen today

Vox: This Cohen hearing fight was everything wrong with how America talks about “racism”

Daily Beast: Cohen - Trump Told Me to Lie About Stormy Daniels Hush-Money Payments

Fox News: The one thing Cohen has been consistent on is the lack of collusion



You decide . . .

About time. The talk shows were furious to find a smoking gun. They didn't have much luck.

All this, and he's still more popular than Hillary Clinton.

The panicky squeals coming from the Republicans prove that they are scared shitless about 2020.

He was the one closest to Trump. He said he has no evidence of collusion with Russia. That liberal dream is evaporating. Best he had was evidence he paid off a hooker and a stripper. Dems should love him for that!

I don't give a rats ass about Michael Cohen and his ability to lie with a straight face. There are many things wrong with this hearing and all of them fall at the feet of Nancy Pelosi. First, Cohen should have answered every question with the fifth amendment saying "answering that question would be a violation of attorney/client privilege". Second: He spewed many things that he didn't have any documentation on, a day planner, a calendar a scrap of paper, nothing. Third: This hearing was specifically scheduled to conflict with the POTUS meeting with Kim Jong Un to try to negotiate an end to the Korean war, a denuclearizing of the Korean peninsula and provide security and a trade partner for the USA. Pelosi intentionally screwed this up. On top of that american "reporters" acted inappropriately in shouting questions to the president during a time that was not a news conference. In a word...DISGRACEFUL.

I don't know what's worse. Falsifying medical reports to dodge the Vietnam draft nearly 50 years ago or finally going only to negotiate a surrender and celebrate the future economic power of communist North Korea now.

He continues to insult military veterans and those KIA & MIA of every era.

A disgrace and a disaster.

Sorry Tony but local crime and potholes have my undivided attention. I tune out DC drama and focus on local issues.

Attorney and client privilege does not extend to communications that are themselves about committing further crimes.

Also, how exactly is it the Democrats fault that Trump broke campaign finance laws???

Anonymous said...

So the Dems are listening to a convicted liar who is going to prison. They are listening to a person who lost his license to practice law in America. They are listening and hoping and basing their next actions on someone who scared every attorney/client relationship in America.
As the implosion of the Democrats and AOC are a daily affair- we have to thank Cohen for contributing.
The media is complicit and a thank you card should sent to the local outlets as well.
Nicely done.

It's always comical to hear what some local "professors" think about real world issues.
Most of them have never had a job that actually had to produce anything and they certainly haven't had any responsibility for anyone other than themselves.
As for Trump's activities and behavior as a "developer", using other people's money, raping the local taxpayers, and playing fast and loose with the facts, you don't have to go to New York to work on your case study.
Just take a good look at what goes on right here in your own back yard. And it's all facilitated by Sly and the gang.
Sleaziness begins at home.

Lying or not, Cohen just gave Congress a reason to subpoena Trump's Tax Returns, so there's that.

GOP jackoffs can hang up all the signs they want, but either Foreign Cash inflow or Tax Fraud can determine the 2020 Election results, not only for the White House, but for both Houses of Congress.

Your Boy has already committed known Tax Fraud in his New Jersey filings, and if the "hidden Returns" surface, he should be buried by investigations in every State he did business in.

Happy 2020 Campaigns, GOP - with this rotting sack of garbage hung around every Candidate's neck!

Every single Republican did nothing but attack Cohen but not one of them said they believe Cadet Bonespurs. Mueller isn't going to be Twit-In-chiefs biggest problem it's the Southern District of New York's District Atty. and their investigation into bank fraud, tax evasion and money laundering. Deutsche Bank is already up to their ass in alligators in Germany for that and the German Courts are sharing their info. with them about Trumps dealings there to finance his real estate investments there and in Europe especially the U,K. and they're already all over Deutsche's dealings with Trump in New York. Then you have Delaware and Maryland going after him for violation of the emoluments law and the U.S. Court of Appeals has already ruled that those cases can proceed. Eventually Trumps family as well as the Kushners and their whole house of cards with crash and he;ll make Bernie Madoff look like an amateur. Patience folks.

I really hope Russia finds Trump's SAT scores and grades. If you're listening Russia, please, please find them. That will be hilarious! I bet he rocked a solid 1.00 GPA through out his "military" school career! Hamberder party!!!!! covefee baby covefee.

Anonymous said...

Oh, evidence of collusion will come out, probably later so it can be prosecuted in SDNY w/o fear of a pardon. Just wait for it...

In the meantime, I'm not worried about Cohen's "lies" - he's been upfront about them. As opposed to the president* who just can't quit tellinh them...

I'm not for Trump but I think we need to wait for 2020 election. And if the Democratic Party takes it back, I think we need to be prepared for a challenge all 4 years for that president. The gridlock now is terrible.

Anonymous said...

^^^^Did the republicans wait until the election to impeach Clinton for lying about a blowjob? No. The precedent has been sent by the republicans and now it must be visited upon trump for far far worse crimes.

8:42, let me fix that for you: "Did the republicans wait until the election to impeach Clinton for lying WHILE UNDER OATH TO TELL THE TRUTH about a blowjob?"

"Dummocucks continue to look more stupid" Ha! You can't make this stuff up! This is hilarious! What's even funnier is that the moron at @9:02AM doesn't even know why this is so funny!!! Why are repubturds always so fucking stupid? LOL!!!!!!!!!

Cohen isn't going to jail for being a convicted liar.

He's going to jail for multiple violations of campaign fiance law including hush payments, wire transfers and bank fraud - all at the request of unindicted co-conspirator "individual one" who is described as a GOP candidate for president that was later sworn into that job in 2017.

Anonymous said...

@8:42 that wasn't about a blowjob, that was about lying to a grand jury. There are hundreds of people who have done hard time for lying to a grand jury about matters less trivial than Clinton's BJ.

What makes Clinton an idiot is he could have invoked executive privilege which would have completely fucked Starr's inquiry.

Anonymous said...

^^^ Clinton tried to avoid testifying but the rule of law established is a president can't avoid it. Executive privilege didn't fly then. It won't fly now.

Trump has lied in his written answers to the special prosecutor which carry the same weight of perjury.

I can't wait for the Trump impeachment articles for lying under oath along with witness tampering and obstruction of justice. And Trump's lying to commit election fraud on the American people is much worse than lying about a blowjob.
