    Mueller should get his own commemorative coin with Cohen's head on both sides …. He could stand there flipping it while questioning trump before the grand jury …

  • cosmic voyager Post author

    Cohen will tell the truth because the prosecution knows the answers already when they question him. Will Cohen go to prison anyway? Yes, but instead of a life sentence he will get only 100 years. After all he will still be a criminal that has broken the law.

  • Billie Matteo Post author

    Lol, I think its safe to say the FBI already seized all the evidence they need to proof everything Cohen says is true and verifiable. Sounds like Trump's ex lawyer is trying to get his job back. Trump's only strategy has been to sow doubt and his ex is already on the job.

    President Trump
    Release General Flynn right now !
    Release your personal Lawyer right now !
    your people were arrested or suffered by Muller's witch hunt, because your people supported you in campaign ..
    It seems President Trump's conscience to save and release all your people put into prisons by evil Muller's witchhunt.
    Witchhunt is wrong and trap to harm good people.
    Therefore,
    President of United States of America has to eliminate Muller's witch hunt !!!
    Fire unjust Muller and Rosenstein to save your good people…That is human way
    Ignoring your people is not human and moral
    Fire unjust Muller and Rosenstein now,
    But investigate Barack Hussein Obama for real Russia Collusion Uranium one, Spy Gate, illegal Wiretapping, supporting transgender surgery even in US military and perhaps in prisons too, fake birth certificate, Benghazi killing of US Ambassador …etc.
    Save General Flynn right now….
    God bless President Trump
    God Bless America

    Even if Cohen is well represented, the prima facie evidence is out there, and Mueller has it, therefore, Cohen will be treated well, yet treated like anyone else would be. They have his data and Manafort's data as well.

    In other words, Michael Cohen has been threatened by the deep state!? Probably along the line of threats to his family & life, his freedom, etc. Think Jim Jordan's nephew & the disgusting media (CIA mouth piece) narrative to destroy anyone who stand in the way of the Satanist pedophiles in the deep state. These people, if you can call them "People", are WICKED & willing to go to ANY length to take down President Trump & the Patriots who are actually trying to SAVE AMERICA from a long, systematic Marxist infiltration of America & the brainwashing of the American people!!!

    This is a great move since Trump has turned​ his back on Michael Cohen and he has LEGAL expenses. Apparently, the Clintons could be affiliating in this way so that Mr. Cohen would come clean and flip on Trump for the TRUTH. Don't blame the CLINTONS if that is the catch ,22 to allowed their former lawyer to assist Cohen to get the TRUE about Trump. It always take MONEY. TRUMP KNOWS TO WELL.

    BTW Manafort sits in solitary confinement and has YET to be charged with a crime…….just saying. Maybe he's being put aside somewhere safely for other purposes. I hope it's to testify against those who placed him in the Trump campaign and for the purpose.

Michael Cohen is wise to look after his and his family's interests rather than after a person who cannot even spell the word "Loyalty.

    I actually believe, that President Trump, is connected before he became President. If, Trump is connected too Russia. Perhaps, anyone that knows to much of Trump dealings before he was President and currently, may be in a serious threat by the Russia Oligarchs/Mafia and Italian Mafia, if they spill the beans, on Trump and them. That, was part of their team. Trump is not a c-
    hump folks. Many people, may disagree with his speech and plenty of his deeds, towards people of color or any other race, that is not white. However, if you taken note. Trump will throw a
    white person, under the bus too. He have openly done it, already.

    If, Trump cannot use you, in the way he want, to use you or if he is done, using you, for his advantage. Either, he will distance himself, from you or he will speak highly of you, still or he will
    throw you under the bus. If, you are truly loyal, to him and have real clot; perhaps, he will defend you or pretend, that he does not know that person, if accusations, are lodge against that
    person and him.

    He done that, with Mafia guy, who he used, to be doing business with. During, his stint with casino. He was with guy, on many occasions. He denied, that he knew him, during his campaign,
    for Presidency, for US and then during his win speech, the same Mafia guy, was on stage with him. LOL. Never, under estimate Trump. He'll fight, in many ways. Rather, he is right or wrong.
    He talked bad, about the Attorney General Of New York, when he was being investigated, for Trump University by that Attorney General; during, his run, for office of the Presidency. He was
    not afraid, period.

    Trump, is probably, the only sitting US President ever, that will walk over the Congress members, that he deem weak and pathetic. He abuse the FBI Leaders and CIA Leaders. Who does
    that, as a US President, openly, in the media? I actually, think Trump is the only US President, that done that, on a large scale openly, on several occasions. Trump seems, to want the FBI
    and CIA, to follow his lead and to do everything, he want them, to do; or he will disparage them, openly and see them, as not being relevant. I do not think, Trump is a chump.

    The office of the special prosecutor has conducted a brilliant attack on Trump and his henchmen. By comparison, its like putting a frog in a container of water and putting it on a burner at a very low heat, always being sure to contain the frog. All they do then is ever so slowly turn up the heat on the burner as the frog swims around in the water, not recognizing the heat is being turned up and the frog is slowly being cooked alive. Trump is now swimming around in his own soup.
