Former Trump attorney and future jailbird Michael Cohen put on quite the performance today before Congress. Speaking to the House Oversight Committee, the disbarred lawyer painted the picture that he was the victim of a master manipulator and sleazy con artist. Cohen did all he could to back up the Democratic talking points, given to him by his Clintonista attorney Lanny Davis, with various baseless statements.
“Donald Trump is a man who ran for office to make his brand great, not to make our country great. He had no desire or intention to lead this nation, only to market himself,” Cohen said.
“I know what Mr. Trump is. He is a racist. He is a conman. He is a cheat,” he added, deriding the “platform of hate and intolerance” that his former long-time boss supposedly used to win the presidency.
While Cohen acts as if he is above the frey and somehow more reputable than Trump, it was widely reported that he once pined for a major role in the administration.
After he was kept on the outside looking in due to his evident lack of competency, Cohen’s bitterness combined with lack of business ethics caused him to flip. This is coming directly from Trump’s own sons.

Cohen maintained that he never wanted a role in the administration during the hearing as he was being grilled by Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) and other conservative lawmakers annoyed by the histrionics of this shameless liar.
“I can tell you a story of Mr. Trump reaming out [former White House Chief of Staff] Reince Priebus because I had not taken a job where Mr. Trump wanted me to, which is working with Don McGahn at the White House General [sic] Counsel’s office,” Cohen said.
“I brought a lawyer in who produced a memo as to why I should not go in because there would be no attorney-client privilege and in order to handle some of the matters that I talked about in my opening, it would be best suited for me not to go in and that every president had a personal attorney,” Cohen added.
Best-selling conservative author and Trump confidant David Bossie is calling foul on Cohen’s assertions. Bossie maintains that Cohen in a delusion of grandeur lobbied him thinking he could be chief of staff while Bossie served on Trump’s presidential transition team.
If this allegation is true, this would mean that the serial liar Cohen perjured himself yet again while on the stand today.
Michael Cohen asked me to support his effort to be Chief of Staff when I helped run the Presidential Transition Team. He perjured himself today.

House Oversight and Reform Committee Chairman Elijah Cummings (D-MD) ultimately bears responsibility for this farce, trotting around this lowlife who will soon be behind bars to score cheap partisan political points as FBI spook Robert Mueller’s special investigation on Russian collusion fizzles out. Cummings attempted to paint Cohen in a sympathetic light during his closing statements.
Rep. Elijah Cummings delivers an emotional closing statement as the Michael Cohen hearing ends: "Hopefully this portion of your destiny will lead to a better … Michael Cohen, a better Donald Trump, a better United States of America, and a better world" https://t.co/ij0AmYP27T pic.twitter.com/byzwpQzqlT

With Democrats in Congress hell bent on destroying President Trump no matter what the cost, the rule of law will continue to be under attack until at least next year’s presidential election. Cohen is just the first of many scumbags who the Left will ruthlessly exploit at the expense of justice and sanity in a desperate attempt to regain their lost power.

House Republicans Hoping to Get Americans Back to Work By End of April
It’s a aspiration, not a plan.
House Republicans are considering plans that would help Americans get back to work by the end of the month. Kevin Brady of Texas told reporters on a conference call that the caucus is preparing preliminary plans that phase the workforce back in at the end of April.
“Our focus is on locking down the virus while we’re taking the steps now to prepare to reopen the economy by the end of the month if the virus permits.”
Brady was careful to qualify that there’s no guarantee the public health situation in the United States would allow such a development.
“I think we should all expect the jobs, the unemployment in the GDP numbers to feel brutal over the short term. It’s because they are. This economy is taking hits like we’ve not seen in most of our lifetimes. But it is just a short-term hit.”
Initial social distancing guidelines set forth by the White House in conjunction with the CDC were extended from two weeks to April 30th earlier in the week, suggesting the executive branch may be cautiously looking towards the end of April to begin phasing out the unprecedented disruptions to everyday American life.
It is worth noting that an early cease to social distancing and commonsense measures to deter the spread of the Chinese coronavirus could prove to be even more harmful than the negative impacts to the economy since the beginning of the virus-related recession. This can’t be rushed. But the consequences of the economic damage are real, and all Americans should look to get everyday economic life up and running against as soon as possible.
