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 . . .

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:
