While most Republican lawmakers were appalled at the reprehensible liar Michael Cohen being trotted up by Congressional Democrats to malign the President before the public yesterday, staunchly ‘never Trump’ Rep. Justin Amash (R-MI) felt much differently. He coddled Michael Cohen during Congressional hearings, expressing a great deal of sympathy for the loathsome attorney.
“[Trump] sometimes communicates his wishes indirectly, for example, you said: ‘Mr. Trump did not directly tell me to lie to Congress. That’s not how he operates.’ Can you explain how he does this?” Amash asked Cohen during his allotted time.
“Sure. It would be no different if I said: ‘That’s the nicest looking tie I’ve ever seen, isn’t it?’ What are you gonna do? You gonna fight with him? The answer is… ‘yeah, it’s the nicest-looking tie I’ve ever seen.’ That’s how he speaks. He doesn’t give you questions. He doesn’t give you orders. He speaks in code,” Cohen said in his response.
“And it’s your impression that others who work for him understand the code as well?” Amash asked, lending credibility to Cohen’s musings to which the disbarred felon responded, “in most people, yes.”
To close, Amash asked a bizarre and frankly effeminate question of Cohen that struck the deceptive sleazeball off guard, “What is the truth that you know President Trump fears most?”
Taken aback, Cohen responded: “That’s a tough question, sir. I don’t have an answer for that one.” The dirty rat was happy after receiving Amash’s softballs while other Republicans questioned him with strength and resolve.
“Thank you for your questions,” Cohen said. “Some of the other ones really make it difficult to try to show some redemption, but I am, I am trying.”
While Amash may be diverging with nearly the entire GOP caucus and an incredibly popular Republican President, he is getting positive attention from the George Soros network. The Soros-funded propaganda entity Talking Points Matter wrote a piece praising Amash for his assistance to Democrats in their rehabilitation efforts of Cohen to hurt the President.
“Most of Wednesday’s House Oversight Committee hearing has been a partisan circus, with the likes of Reps. Jim Jordan (R-OH) and Mark Meadows (R-NC) using their questioning time to put on a show of outrage and gotcha questions,” blogger Kate Riga wrote at TPM.
“Three hours into the cacophony, Rep. Justin Amash (R-MI) took a different tack, asking a question actually seeking information from Michael Cohen, the answer to which could have even proved damaging to President Donald Trump,” she added.
Amash was the only Republican who signed on as a co-sponsor to a resolution rebuking President Trump for using emergency measures, but never uttered a peep during the ten times Obama did exactly the same thing when Amash was in Congress from 2011-2016. Amash has also expressed sympathy toward the idea of impeachment, repeated globalist talking points on Trump’s foreign policy achievements, and voted down key border security measures. Republicans of Michigan’s Third District might be wise to find a primary challenger who will stand for ‘America First’ and isn’t a Soros favorite for 2020.
He Found His Spine: Vulnerable Senator Cory Gardner Vows to Support Trump’s SCOTUS Nominee
Gardner found his backbone.
Sen. Cory Gardner (R-CO) has often been at odds with the Trump movement, being a favorite of the GOP establishment’s Senate Leadership Fund.
This is why his recent declaration that he will be supporting President Donald Trump’s choice to succeed the deceased Ruth Bader Ginsburg is so surprising. He made the announcement in a Twitter post on Monday.
“When a President exercises constitutional authority to nominate a judge for the Supreme Court vacancy, the Senate must decide how to best fulfill its constitutional duty of advice and consent,” Gardner said in his official statement.
“I have and will continue to support judicial nominees who will protect the Constitution, not legislate from the bench, and uphold the law. Should a qualified nominee who meets this criteria be put forward, I will vote to confirm,” he added.

The president’s pick for the Supreme Court will certainly fit Gardner’s criteria. Trump has announced that he will be appointing a woman to the bench.
One top contender – Amy Comey Barrett – recently made a trip to the White House, as Big League Politics has reported:
Judge Amy Coney Barrett visited the White House on Monday, as President Donald Trump zeroes in on selecting a nominee to fill the vacant seat on the US Supreme Court.
Barrett is reportedly a front-runner for the judicial nomination. She’s a generally conservative judge, with a staunch pro-life record. Her track record on immigration law issues is generally conservative.
Barrett currently serves as a circuit judge of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has advised President Trump that she is his preferred candidate for the seat on the court.
President Trump had confirmed that he plans to nominate a woman to fill the seat of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg, who died of complications from pancreatic cancer on Friday.
Democrats have launched a full-fledged fit urging President Trump to give them a break and decline to nominate a conservative justice, but they won’t be so lucky. Republican Senators and President Trump have rallied around the notion of appointing a justice before the November election, fulfilling their constitutional responsibilities.
Trump confirmed that he would be revealing the identity of his judicial nominee on Friday or Saturday, taking a few extra days to vet candidates. Florida Judge Barbara Lagoa is reportedly another candidate being considered for the nomination.
It’ll be inherently harder for incensed, power-thirsty Democrats to attack a female judicial candidate. Maybe they’ll alienate swing female voters through waging a scorched earth campaign to block the confirmation of Barrett, who is a mother of seven.
The Republicans have a great opportunity to score a major political victory and really stick it to the extreme Left with this expedited SCOTUS confirmation. The fact that a moderate like Gardner is on board is a great sign that the confirmation is likely to occur before November’s election.
