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.
PATHETIC: National Guard Booted to Parking Lot After Democrat Congressman Complained They Weren’t Wearing Masks
The Democrat complained about masks.
New reports suggest that a detachment of National Guard personnel present in Washington, DC for Inauguration duties were kicked out of their spartan lodging in the Capitol to a parking lot after a Democrat Congressman complained that one of the guardsmen wasn’t wearing a mask at a Dunkin’ Donuts inside the Capitol.
Breitbart News has learned that Massachusetts Democrat Will Keating reported that he encountered a soldier at the Capitol without a mask. When Keating told the guardsman to wear a mask, the service member told Keating, “I appreciate my freedom.”
This event reportedly led to the entire National Guard detachment being kicked out of their lodging inside a Capitol lobby to an outdoor parking lot, where they were exposed to freezing temperatures.
Keating has declined to comment on the exchange, with reports suggesting he reported the incident to Capitol Police. This led to the Guard being booted outside as a punishment.
“Yesterday dozens of senators and congressmen walked down our lines taking photos, shaking our hands and thanking us for our service. Within 24 hours, they had no further use for us and banished us to the corner of a parking garage. We feel incredibly betrayed,” one Guard member told Politico about being kicked to the curb.
Establishment Democrats had been eager to use the military service members as political props, even after a fiasco in which they were caught trying to purge conservative-leaning Guard personnel for insufficiently loyalty to the Biden government. Governor Ron DeSantis of Florida and Greg Abbott of Texas recalled the detachments of their state National Guards from DC following the second incident of disrespect to the troops, with the former rejecting the idea of FL Guard members being utilized as Nancy Pelosi’s personal servants.
