Cohen claims in new book that Trump is 'guilty of the same crimes' as him | TheHill

President Trump’s former personal attorney and fixer Michael Cohen said the president is “guilty of the same crimes” that landed him in federal prison, according to the Associated Press, who obtained an early copy of Cohen’s tell-all memoir.

In the book, titled “Disloyal: The True Story of the Former Personal Attorney to President Donald J. Trump,” Cohen accused the president of corruption and fraud, according to an excerpt released last month.

Cohen pleaded guilty to campaign finance violations in 2018 and turned on Trump amid his legal ordeal, testifying before Congress and accusing the president of ordering him to make payments to two women who claimed they had affairs with Trump.

According to the AP, Cohen refers to himself as the “star witness” of a hush-money conspiracy that could lead to charges against the president once he’s out of office.

It never pays to settle these things, but many, many friends have advised me to pay,” Trump said, according to Cohen. “If it comes out, I’m not sure how it would play with my supporters. But I bet they’d think it’s cool that I slept with a porn star.”

Here we go...... Weeks of stupid excerpts from the book that federal prisoner Cohen wrote.

Michael Cohen is a felon who lied to Congress and disbarred lawyer.
Cohen was also charged by the US attorney's office Manhattan, with tax fraud and false statements to a bank.
He plead guilty to the charges.

Does lying discredit someone for all time?

I just want to make sure I have a solid answer on this.

First,

...to protect Trump.




Second, "Common Sense", I need you to explain to me how it came about and what the motive is for all of existence that did not already support Trump conspired to victimize Trump.

Why? What's in it? Why not other Republican presidents? Why would people who faithfully served Obama, Bush, Clinton, Bush, Reagan, Carter, etc etc etc. . . . why would every last one of the ones who say something reflecting negatively on Trump lie to get Trump?

Like 9/11 truthers, you do not have an answer. That is because you are lying and your lies are some of the dumbest **** ever splattered out as diahhrea but called argument.





You Trumpists have done the equivalent of standing on a street corner screaming bloody murder about how everyone else is crazy for four years.

It'd be fall-out-of-chair hilarious if you didn't vote in my country.

Have you followed Stephanie Winston Wolkoff (Melania's assistant) coming out with a book and her story about the missing inauguration money?

After seeing an interview with her, I'm now convinced SDNY is coming for the Trump's after inauguration day - if Trump loses the election. And that might include Melania, too.

Cohen could claim 10 little angels came down to him from heaven and made him trash Trump and all the press would have to say is are you sure it wasn't a dozen angels?

You folks seem to have forgotten what this was all about:

The allegation was that the payoff should have been made with campaign funds as opposed to personal funds.
Cohen didn't contest that charge, and pled guilty to it as well as guilty to the charges relating to his tax issues (which had nothing to do with Trump) in exchange for testimony and a lighter sentence.
The criminal case has already been closed (since there is a solid legal defense in using personal funds as opposed to campaign funds in this issue. Which also means Cohen didn't really have much to say).
More ado about nothing.
