Yes. Pretty good incentive to tell the truth now rather than risk compounding his sentence.

 

Funny how the system works though.

 

This guy is going to jail for lying while the President of the United States lies publicly on a daily basis and the people calling Cohen a liar see no conflict here.

 

One guy is a dirty filthy liar while the other guy is a hero.

 

Go figure?

There is no figuring.  Blind worship!  He could shoot somebody in the head on television, and half of the voters would say he was being tough on crime or it was self-defence.  Cheers!

Trump has three types of supporters.

 

1) As in any cult, many followers tend to be blind to their leaders transgressions. You can feel sorry for those people. Bring on the KoolAid.

 

2) Then there are those who support Trump because they feel that he is better than the alternative. Those folks should check their moral compass now and again and take a close look at who they are supporting.

 

3) Then there are those many elected Republicans who are not are not blind followers and know better, but they’ve sold their souls to retain their power and position. They are a sad commentary on today’s ethics.

Is anyone here of the thinking that this whole Trump's ascendancy is just good old Karma at work to make him pay for his lifetime of sins?

 

We might see Trump org file for bankruptcy under the weight of the investigations, Trump's sons change their last name (Like that of Madoff) and an end to the criminal enterprise.

Trump’s best chance to stay out of jail is to get re-elected  :o

Before you guys get too giddy over Cohen's testimony, you should at least watch this exchange between Meadows and Cohen. 

Meadows has already referred the matter for criminal investigation.

His re-election odds continue to go up and will only continue to do so if this is the nonsense the Democrats are going to spend their time in control of the house doing. Octazio Cortez is all over the news grilling Cohen on whether Trump ever tried to lower his real estate taxes!!! They are just so out of whack and the Julie Smollett thing is indicative of where its continuing to go. The guys like Schiff... it's insane. I thought for the longest time he'd(Trump) be a one term president but not anymore. I've also said for a while, and everybody's hero Warren Buffett even said so recently, but Mike Bloomberg would be a great candidate. Howard Shultz should be embraced, instead he is shunned. And what's left of the left is these idiots running in the mostest diversest contest, and the result will be some goofy stereotype shouting "you're racist" and just like in 2016, America won't buy it.

But the channel ain't changing bud! - despite Trumps best efforts to distract .....  ;)

How is that N Korea visit playing on the news? Even the Saudi's are giving Trump the finger over his tweet 'demand' for lower oil prices.

Along with the buyers using those expiring Iranian sanction waivers ... 

 

How many months did it take between when Watergate broke in June '72, and Nixon went down in August '74? 27.

How many months has it been since the Russia Investigation began in May 2017? 21.

Most would think that the man has maybe 6 months left.

I'm having more and more respect for AOC for the simple reason that if any system is corrupted, be it Capitalism or Socialism or what have you, this system will eventually decay and fail.  Whatever temporary economic damage AOC might cause (e.g. Amazon), if she manages to reduce corruption in the system and strengthen the rule of law it will be a net positive for future generations.

 

I've been an expat for many years and have lived in countries without rule of law or high level of corruption.  In the free world, this corruption tends to be smarter, hidden but it is just as deadly.

The question referred to contracts with foreign governments. Rep Meadows was wrong. The next exchange clarified. If Cohen did lie today in other ways, so be it. He'll never be on the stand for his recollection of events anyway. Dude's a scumbag.

 

Pence wont be President. Both parties are quite good at politics.

You may be right.  I looked at the form in question; it does ask for contracts with foreign governments.  However Meadows is saying that a foreign government owns the majority of one of the companies Cohen had a contract with.  All in all I have no idea if the form applies.

Fordham says Trump did send them threatening letter regarding grades:

But its ok, because he reduced taxes and is building a wall...this human, walking, talking f**k-up is President!  Cheers!

 

Disclosing his grades would be a violation of federal law in the US.

They had no intent on releasing his grades, and your critiquing that instead of the fact that the Commander in Chief felt so insecure about his GPA or SAT scores that he had his lawyer threaten his alma mater?  If anything, he should have been proud and said that he became President and achieved all of his success with lousy school marks!

So I made a comment on the issue that the President went nuts over his school marks...based on witness testimony and his school's comments...and you think it is still a Trump (political) thing?  I would have the same response if it is was anyone else, and you would too, but in this case you take a shot at me and defend him?!  Cheers!

How do you know "they had no intent"? It's also illegal for IRS agents and cabinet members to leak info but that clearly hasn't stopped them. So essentially he sent a notice warning them not to do something illegal. Whats the big deal? Nothing of course. But it's Trump. So why not find some arcane angle to vilify him.
