President Donald Trump’s personal attorney Michael Cohen is fighting the Senate witch hunt into alleged Russian involvement in Trump-World political and/or business practices.
The Senate Intelligence Committee has decided to subpoena Cohen after cancelling his friendly un-compelled testimony. The Committee is trying to big-foot Cohen because he released a statement to the media denying and all Russia connections.
“Let me be totally clear that I am innocent of the allegations raised against me in the public square, which are based upon misinformation and unnamed or unverifiable sources,” Cohen said in his opening statement to the Committee, which he gave to the media, thus angering the Russia witch hunt investigators.
“I have never engaged with, been paid by, paid for, or conversed with any member of the Russian Federation or anyone else to hack Democratic Party computers; and I have never engaged with, been paid by, paid for, or conversed with any member of the Russian Federation or anyone else to create fake news stories to assist the Trump campaign or to damage the Clinton campaign,” Cohen said.
The Senate convened its Russia witch hunt before seeing any evidence whatsoever that Russia colluded with Team Trump during the election. As I reported from a March 30 Foreign Relatitons Committee hearing for The American Spectator:
“Top Democrats on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee said Thursday that they have not yet seen any evidence that the Donald Trump campaign colluded with the Russians during the 2016 election, even as hearings meant to probe the unsubstantiated claims dominate Capitol Hill.
“I think, uh. I haven’t seen the evidence because it hasn’t been made public,” Sen. Jeanne Shaheen of New Hampshire told The American Spectator during recess in a Foreign Relations Committee hearing featuring Madeleine Albright. “So I’m waiting to see what the intelligence committees come up with.”
“Um, the investigation is ongoing,” Sen. Tim Kaine of Virginia told The American Spectator, declining to confirm that he has seen any evidence.
“Well, I think there’s a bunch of really really suspicious contacts” Sen. Tom Udall of New Mexico told The American Spectator. “And the timing, and the contacts, it doesn’t look good for them. It looks very very suspicious.”
Pressed on evidence, Udall confirmed that he has not seen definitive proof. “There is significant evidence that there were a number of contacts, and the question is, what was said? It looks very suspicious.” Democrats have been focusing on the fact that Attorney General Jeff Sessions, a Trump campaign surrogate, met with the Russian ambassador at the Republican National Convention at an event set up by the Obama State Department and co-sponsored by the Heritage Foundation.
“That’s why they’re having the committee hearings today, and I haven’t seen the results of the committee hearings yet,” Sen. Tom Carper of Delaware said. “And I haven’t seen the results of the committee hearings yet.”
“I’m going to my hearing,” Sen. Cory Booker of New Jersey told The American Spectator, laughing nervously.
Sen. Ben Cardin of Maryland, the top Democrat on the Foreign Relations Committee, would not answer The American Spectator‘s repeated questions about the lack of evidence, even though he stated in the hearing in no uncertain terms that “Russia sought to undermine and interfere in our elections.”
Both the Senate Foreign Relations and Intelligence Committees convened hearings Thursday to investigate the Trump-Russia suspicions, which so far have not been backed up by a single piece of incontrovertible evidence.
Dan Crenshaw White Knights for Liz Cheney After Republicans Blast Her Support for Trump’s Second Impeachment
Birds of a feather flock together.
Liz Cheney, daughter of Dick, was one of ten GOP House members to vote “yes” on President Donald Trump’s unprecedented second impeachment. Then when some were calling on Cheney to resign over her disgraceful vote, Dan Crenshaw, who voted against impeachment, quickly came to her defense and announced his “full support” for her.
“Let’s get some truth on the record: @Liz_Cheney has a hell of a lot more backbone than most, & is a principled leader with a fierce intellect,” Crenshaw tweeted Wednesday afternoon. “She will continue to be a much needed leader in the conference, with my full support.”
“We can disagree without tearing each other apart,” he added.

Crenshaw himself was then roundly criticized in the replies to his tweet.
The people of Wyoming can do better than Liz Cheney, like the people of Texas can do better than you

I wish SNL never mocked you, because then you'd just be some un-known RINO, but unfortunately they made you a star.

Really thought you were the man. Much respect for your service and sacrifice, but if you are part of the GOP trying to purge the party of Trumpism. Count me out. I can’t handle more Romney n McCain candidates

So sad. Turns out your just another politician. You’re right about disagreeing. You’ll see it at the ballot box next election how we can peacefully disagree.

Cheney’s vote comes as no surprise. Big League Politics reported on her recent statement in support of Trump’s second impeachment, part of which read: “There has never been a greater betrayal by a President of the United States of his office and his oath to the Constitution. I will vote to impeach the President.” For this CNN laughably called her the “conscience of Republicans.”

As the old saying goes, “birds of a feather flock together.” Dan Crenshaw and Liz Cheney most certainly do not represent the future of the GOP.
