Michael Cohen Dangles Mystery Dirt On Trump – If Only House Democrats Will Keep Him Out Of Jail

3659

With ‘collusion’ and ‘obstruction’ now off the table for all but the most cognitively dissonant leftist, attorneys for Michael Cohen are leveraging the desperation of several members of Congress to try and keep President Trump’s former lawyer out of prison.

In a letter sent to lawmakers Thursday, The New York Times reports that the lawyers said Cohen is still sorting through documents that might be of interest to House Democrats investigating his former boss, President Donald Trump, and that Mr. Cohen can best help their oversight inquiries if he remains out of prison to sift through the rest of the millions of his documents.

The lawyers sought the help of the Democrats in convincing federal prosecutors in Manhattan of “the need for Mr. Cohen to be readily available to Congress and to prosecutors conducting these investigations, such that his date to report for incarceration about four weeks from now will be substantially postponed while he is fully cooperating with prosecutors and Congress.”

The lawyers cited the potential for his cooperation in the investigations to lead to a “reduced term” for Mr. Cohen.

“There is no doubt that Mr. Cohen’s testimony, both public and private, has contributed substantially, with documents and other evidence, to triggering additional areas for investigation by law enforcement authorities and the Congress,” the lawyers wrote.

“He has done so despite intense personal pressures and stresses he faces for himself and his family. However, with 30 days left before he surrenders to prison, time is no longer a luxury he is capable of.”

As a reminder, Cohen pleaded guilty to tax evasion, fraud, lying to Congress and campaign finance violations.

The lawyers begged that the members of Congress write letters stating that the “substantial trove of new information” that Mr. Cohen can share “requires substantial time with him and ready access to him by congressional committees and staff to complete their investigations and to fulfill their oversight responsibilities required under the Constitution as the Article I independent branch of government.”

Mr. Trump, his lawyers and their Republican allies have denounced Mr. Cohen as a liar and have accused him of manufacturing information to reduce his prison sentence.

  1. All he had to do was plead the fifth….never voluntarily say anything to someone trying to put you in jail….never plead guilty. Had he kept his mouth shut and not attacked President Trump…all Mueller had on him was lying ….he probably would have been vindicated by the president and given amnesty. For a lawyer, he isn’t very smart.

  2. Mr. Cohen, all of the time Spews LIES just like Mrs. HRC, all of those FAKE Republicans and his own Progressive Liberal Commie Socialist Democratic Party in trying to keep his Derriere out of Jail/Prison, but he Failed! He is a born “Lime Light Chaser” like Stormy’s Ex-PLCSD Lawyer Avenatti! The PLCSD Party’s version of US Justice is backa$$wards, their version is the Accused is Guilty until Proven Innocent Without A Doubt, it is the other way around, The Accused Is Innocent until Proven Guilty Without A Doubt, like their way of accusing The Innocent Supreme Court Justice Kavanaugh!!! The Legally Elected US President Mr. Donald John Trump has NOT done anything Illegal, because he follows The US Constitution and The US 1997 Immigration and Immigration Act TO THE LETTER, but The PLCSD Party are the Ones who Started this Silent Coup, and Love NOT Following The US Constitution and NOT Follow or Improve The US 1997 Immigration and Immigration Act, So It Will Keep “We The Legal Citizens/People And The Legal Immigrants Of The United States Of America Safe, Secure And Happy For Only Our Posterity”! Since the PLCSD Party Lost The 2016 US Presidential Election, Even With The Illegal Help Of All Of Those Illegal Immigrant-Aliens, Who Continuously Use The USA’s Southern Border Like It Is A Old Fashioned Stores Unsecured Revolving Front And Back Doors, WHICH IS ILLEGAL!!!

  3. No way would I trust anything that man would say….so obvious he is a liar….i cracked up when he said the President was speaking to him in codes……really ,,,,awe….how special he is that the President did that for him and him only…..lol

  4. OMG The bad thing is the Demonuts are stupid enough to believe him.
    Why isn’t he Already behind bars ? Are they giving him time to manufacture something on President Trump ? Stupid Idiots will probably fall for it.

    I would tell him. Tough luck and see you behind bars soon.

    PRESIDENT TRUMP 2020

    GET THE WALL UP NOW AND QUIT LETTING ILLEGALS GO INSIDE OUR COUNTRY !!

  5. Why wait to put him in prison? He should be cooling his heels in the slammer right now. When you are a traitor like him, you get special privileges if you support the Dems ideology. Just look at Jussie Smollett, he got out of a trial in Chicago. There is such corruption in this Country, it boggles the mind!

  6. “Ooh wait ! I just found more ‘stuff’ and if I can stay out just a bit longer… or maybe not go to jail AT ALL… I’ll share it all with you guys to help our country heal”.
    – What a creepy, small semblance of a man he is…
    Surprised the AG doesn’t now ask where WAS this “new stuff”, since the feds “thought” they confiscated everything from his offices and home.

  7. YEAH…RIGHT…Sure he just found some overlooked information!! Did I mention I have an oceanfront hotel & casino just outside of Fargo, North Dakota “For Sale”?? Mueller has tried [or promised] this low-life ‘carte blanc” in thinking he would be a silver bullet to help his witch hunt destroy Trump ~~ Ironic that Mueller has had his “Report to Prison” extended twice already??

    I am no Manafort fan either, but Mueller was almost charged with “contempt of court” with his opposing the 1st Manafort sentencing of 47 months ~ He argued to the judge that he was wrong and Manafort should get at least 19 years ~~ With the 2 “report to prison” actions already given to Crooked Cohen; could there have been another scheme or promise that he would/could use other tactics like this “Oh I think I have more info to prove Trump is a crook…I just need more and more time to look it up”…….Such BS…but I bet Nadler and PenNeck will be all over this BS???

  8. This guy is a fucking liar. The Dems are stupid enough to fall for it, though. He’s a big pussy too. He only got three years in prison. Manafort got seven and a half years in prison. I don’t see him complaining about it.

  9. What a cowardly,simpering little twit this sad sack is! I can’t understand how his wife puts up with him. One thing is perfectly clear, if it came to a choice between his safety or hers, she’d be a goner!

  10. The Democrats have already sold their souls to damage Trump, sucking up to a convicted felon like Cohen will not be much of stretch. The Democrats have no power to do anything about Cohen’s upcoming prison sentence. All they could do is order him to testify at some point in the future which might keep him out of prison until then. Trump should push the Bureau of Prisons to send Cohen to the Federal Prison in Atlanta or Marion, IL, or maybe the AdMax in Florence, CO and not to some country club like Eglin, FL.
