It does if he has absolutley no knowledge of anything in Mueller's report that is not already public.

In other words, Cohen is going to testify that Trump made him pay off some tarts who had threatened to go to the press - which according to the ex Chairman of the FEC, who actually helped draft the regulations, is NOT a violation.

Moreover, Cohen has stopped short of saying in public that he advised the now President against it. Kind of important. You have lawyers to deal with things, you know, legally. If you ask a lawyer to get an NDA signed, you'd kind of expect them to tell you if it was against the law.

I am sure that we will disagree on whether what he says it true or not depending on how damaging it is to trump.

Cohen had the opportunity for a trial by his peers. He declined instead deciding to plead guilty.

I am quite sure what side you are on, sweety.

By Any Means Necessary... so to you it isn't going to matter if it is a lie or not as long as it hurts Orange Man Bad.

You have no moral high ground here. You just care about results.

They won the majority, they have the power to weaponize the committees in the house to damage the president's image, they hope to destroy him, or at a minimum make him unelectable so they can take the Whitehouse in 2020.

Similar to their strategy with using the agencies to attempt the same before during and after the 2016 election.

They have to destroy him to win.

You can't blame them for using the power they have. It's their best chance at winning or eliminating Trump.

He probably should have chosen a trial by his peers... possibly they could have pointed out to him that one of the crimes he plead guilty to isn't a crime.

But at the end of the day, he has been shown to be a scumbag anyways... so good riddance.

This is going to be glorious!!!


Said before and I'll make another note now, if you're hoping this guy is your shining star, you deserve all the flak that comes thereafter.

wrong ... Not by any means necessary.... By testimony and evidence that will be proof to everyone. I do not want any results that will spark decades of debate. I am not in any hurry. I want to know everything.

Of course I can blame them.

They took an oath to serve the country and don't seem to care about that or the citizenry at all.

They're bad people who are doing this for nothing more than political power and more money in their pockets.

Hell yes I can blame them.

I think they look to reveal... his own actions will be what destroys him.

Again, not against the law. And he didn't lie under oath. What are you lunatics trying to accomplish? Oh yeah, damage Trump... BAMN... Ugh, it's exhausting.

Yeah Im sure the jury would be the ones to explain the law over what the judge and justice systems defines it to be. Because thats how the world works right?
And of course you know more than the lawyers because they somehow missed what you are asserting.

I hear you, and agree. But it was no secret that they were hellbent on doing this when they won the majority in the house, there's NOTHING preventing them from this therefore you can't blame them for doing it. Keeping their real campaign promises!

They don't give a damn about legislation or the needs of the people, destroying Trump by any means necessary is their first, foremost top priority!

Next to obstructing his administration and attempts to raise taxes, expand government and restrictions regulations, socialist agendas, eliminate electoral college etc. All doomed to fail!

You can however blame the voters that elected them.

Common Sense Time! - If President Trump committed crimes, Mueller wouldn't allow him to testify before Congress in open session next month.

If he had gone to trial he would have skewered over his tax fraud/taxi medallion issue--nothing to do with campaign finance or Trump. That hush money bit was something Mueller added in after Cohen decided to plea guilty--at which point the weakling cohen had no choice but to say it.
