Matt Gaetz to Michael Cohen: Your Wife is ‘About to Learn a Lot’
Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-Fla.) fired a shot at President Donald J. Trump’s former personal attorney Michael Cohen, who is in the midst of a three day stint of testifying before Congress.
@MichaelCohen212 – Do your wife & father-in-law know about your girlfriends? Maybe tonight would be a good time for that chat. I wonder if she’ll remain faithful when you’re in prison. She’s about to learn a lot…,” Gaetz said on Twitter.
Wednesday, Cohen will testify publicly before the Senate Intelligence Committee, and will reportedly tell members of Congress that Trump has violated the law during his tenure as President.
Cohen is a convicted felon who was officially disbarred in New York on Tuesday. He pleaded guilty to lying under oath to Congress during testimony in the Special Counsel Robert S. Mueller III’s Russian “collusion” investigation. He was sentenced to three years in prison and report to the penitentiary on May 6.
Gaetz has miffed the political left, as amateur legal experts on Twitter have accused him of “witness tampering.”
Citing “legal experts” like non-practicing attorney and #NeverTrump stalwart Ben Shapiro and CNN commentator Steve Vladek, Law & Crime said Gaetz “may have violated the law.”
The outrage comes in the midst of two-year investigation in which the entire Trump family and many of his allies have lived under constant threat of political persecution by Mueller and members of Congress like Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.), the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee.
The same people complaining about Gaetz’s Tweet have given the federal government a pass for its Stalinist investigation into Trump and his family. The federal government has clearly been investigating Trump as a person, despite the fact the justice system is supposed to investigate crimes, not people.
Most recently, this crowd has ignored the fact that Trump ally Roger Stone was stripped of his First Amendment rights and barred from speaking about his case, which is part of the Mueller probe, by activist judge and Mueller ally Amy Berman Jackson. All of this happened after the feds sent 29 FBI agents to Roger Stone’s home in a pre-dawn raid to arrest him, despite the fact that Stone does not have a passport, and was hardly a flight risk. Magically, CNN was outside Stone’s home, cameras rolling, when the raid occurred.
D.C. politics have become especially messy as Mueller prepares to finish his investigation into Trump and return his final report. Once again, one set of rules seem to apply to police state-allied liberals, while another set exists for conservatives.
