Apparently to the leftist media, the fact that Cohen lied under oath somehow implicates President Trump in wrongdoing, but many people believe they’re grasping at straws.
Viewers can almost see them smacking their lips in unholy glee over the information and the way they can spin it.
Cohen admitted he misled federal lawmakers about a proposed deal to build a Trump Tower project in Moscow, after previously telling lawmakers the project was shelved in January 2016, but it extended until June of that year.
Trump added, “He’s a weak person and not a very smart person,” and that Cohen’s “trying to get a much lesser prison sentence by making up a story.”
President Trump stated he let the project go, “sometime in 2016.”
He added that even if Cohen were being honest, which many people doubt, “it doesn’t matter. Because I was allowed to do whatever I wanted during the campaign. I was running my business.”
He said, “I’m not worried at all” about the implications.
Considering that Trump has massive leverage in the form of the declassifying the Obama documents that show the former administration (including Mueller) behaved in an unscrupulous, not to say highly illegal, manner, many people think his nonchalance is well-founded.
Of course, the mainstream media and democrats are having a field-day with this information.
Everyone is claiming that these ‘Trump associates’ hid their connections to Russia, but that sort of claim is extremely ridiculous.
Manafort’s activities occurred a decade before the presidential election, and Cohen himself admitted that the entire incident here involves a specific business incident, and absolutely nothing to do with the election or any so-called interference.
The information says Cohen “knowingly and deliberately” lied and could face up to five years in prison for the act.
Cohen discussed the project with the future president “on more than the three occasions.”
It’s not like he accepted millions from Russia to negotiate and sell one-fifth of America’s uranium resources… or illegally weaponized the FBI and DOJ to surveil a presidential candidate. Oh, right, that was Obama, Clinton and the deep state. Mueller made the uranium handoff.
It seems clear to all logically thinking people that the entire witch hunt is designed to protect and hide the possibly treasonous behavior in the previous administration and deep state.
It’s a federal crime to lie under oath to congress… something the left knows all about.
