Another Big Day

The day has finally arrived: Michael Cohen - unimpeded by loyalty to pResident tRump - is going to testify before Congress. The last time he was there, he lied. This time, he says, he is going to tell the truth, and has several documents to back up his assertions, including:

  • A copy of a check Mr. Trump wrote from his personal bank account – after he became president - to reimburse me for the hush money payments I made to cover up his affair with an adult film star and prevent damage to his campaign;

  • Copies of financial statements for 2011 – 2013 that he gave to such institutions as Deutsche Bank;

  • A copy of an article with Mr. Trump’s handwriting on it that reported on the auction of a portrait of himself – he arranged for the bidder ahead of time and then reimbursed the bidder from the account of his non-profit charitable foundation, with the picture now hanging in one of his country clubs; and

  • Copies of letters I wrote at Mr. Trump’s direction that threatened his high school, colleges, and the College Board not to release his grades or SAT scores.

This and more can be found in his amazing opening statement, provided ahead of time to Congress and WaPo.

  • tRump directed Cohen to lie to Congress

  • tRump continued working the Russia deal while campaigning for president

  • tRump knew in advance (from Roger Stone) about the Wikileaks email drop

  • tRump paid him $35k/month to reimburse him for the Stormy Daniels payoff (after he was elected and took office)

  • tRump knew about the Trump Tower meeting in advance

In amongst all that gold is this statement:
Mr. Trump is an enigma. He is complicated, as am I. He has both good and bad, as do we all. But the bad far outweighs the good, and since taking office, he has become the worst version of himself. He is capable of behaving kindly, but he is not kind. He is capable of committing acts of generosity, but he is not generous. He is capable of being loyal, but he is fundamentally disloyal.

Today is going to be fireworks.
