Disgraced Democrat attorney Michael Cohen has been all over the news this morning. It’s non-stop. He gave an interview to ABC’s Good Morning America’s George Stephanopoulos and laid all the blame on President Trump for his actions.
Wonder if he’s been disbarred yet. That is surely coming for divulging attorney/client communications. Plus, Cohen is not exactly credible. Every time he opens his mouth a lie ensues.
This is Cohen’s first interview since he was sentenced to almost three years in federal prison for financial crimes, lying to Congress and two campaign finance violations. He’s delusional – he claims that he has finally reunited the country. Uh no… not even remotely true and still drying my eyes over that one. But he does make a total and complete fool of himself through all of this. It’s almost comical. This is a convicted liar and felon that ABC is holding up as some persecuted paragon of virtue. That’s just laughable.
More on this ridiculous exchange from The Federalist Papers:
“He is saying very clearly that he never directed you to do anything wrong. Is that true?” host George Stephanopoulos asked him.
“I don’t think there is anybody that believes that. First of all, nothing at the Trump organization was ever done unless it was run through Mr. Trump,” Cohen said.
“He directed me, as I said in my allocution and I said as well in the plea, he directed me to make the payments, he directed me to become involved in these matters. Including the one with McDougal, which was really between him and David Pecker and then David Pecker’s counsel,” he said.
“I just reviewed the documents … in order to protect him. I gave loyalty to someone who truthfully does not deserve loyalty,” Cohen said.
“He was trying to hide what you were doing, correct?” Stephanopoulos asked.
“Correct,” Cohen said.
“And he knew it was wrong?” the host asked.
“Of course,” Cohen said.
“And he was doing that to help his election?” Stephanopoulos pressed.
“You have to remember at what point in time that this matter came about — two weeks or so before the election. Post the Billy Bush [“Access Hollywood”] comments, so, yes, he was very concerned about how this would affect the election,” Cohen said.
EXCLUSIVE: "I told the truth, I took responsibility for my actions," Michael Cohen tells @GStephanopoulos. "And instead of [Donald Trump] taking responsibility for his actions, what does he do? He attacks my family." https://t.co/QMAFv7jAiV pic.twitter.com/Y1jgtEKbjO

There is no one in their right mind that would take Cohen’s version of this at his word. He’s a sociopath and lies with ease.
Michael Cohen is a liar and I don’t believe a word that comes out of his mouth
I think that he is lying and making up stories about Donald Trump Russia and the hush money payments
he is a convicted felon who has committed many crimes that has nothing to do with Donald Trump

Even Democrat Bakari Sellers and CNN dared to call this liar a… well… liar – and the left is up in arms over it.
I don't have Marc shorts Twitter handle @Bakari_Sellers bakari so tell him for me he keeps saying "why should we believe what Michael Cohen is saying when he's a liar" tell him to stop being a hypocrite and apply those same words to Donald Trump!!!

@CNN calling Michael Cohen a liar when we have a man in the Oval Office who is a pathological liar?!?!? Lying for a client and being a pathological liar are not even close to being the same.🙄 If you think trump is not a Jones/Manson then you haven’t paid attention 🙄

And what in the heck does any of this have to do with Russian collusion? Nothing and the witch hunt goes on. Trump made a mistake ever taking Cohen on as counsel and he has admitted that. The left is adept at setting up the right in a myriad of ways. I give you sleaze bag Michael Cohen as evidence of that.
