Trump/Russia 2016 election investigation (continued)


#1045

I’m watching the feed on CNN and all the commentators are toeing the republican line.


#1046

I feel like in the last couple years we’ve just been watching angry white men spitting their dying breath at everyone trying desperately to hold onto their white power. It won’t last.


#1047

I mean, they all got their tax break.


#1048

They’re going to try to burn it all down before they relinquish it.


#1049

After the Kavanaugh hearing righteous anger is the go-to attitude when dealing with any accusation from Democrats.


#1050

Chris Christie somehow became a commentator for ABC. He hammered, repeatedly, how significant it is that the R’s are not challenging the substance of any of Cohen’s statements.


#1051

They like their jobs, so they need an out because they know it’s all true.


#1052

Wait, the GOP is allowing a woman to take part in the questioning today?


#1053

Funny that Cohen himself just said the same thing.


#1054

I’m no fan of Lanny Davis…but he is a lawyer and so is Cohen and they both likely realized that the actual statements made by Cohen weren’t being challenged when they commiserated during the break.


#1055

For those that don’t know Joe Valachi.


#1056

Now it seems they’re saying Cohen gave Trump bad legal advice? Are they now working on blaming Cohen for poor Trump unwittingly paying off porn stars & all the other shady illegal shit?


#1057

“Trump only did those illegal things because his lawyer told him to” is another novel approach.


#1058

#1059

Me, listening to this entire thing:


#1060

Seems like the best testimony results from Democrats just letting Cohen talk about life inside the Trump bubble.


#1061

Uh…


#1062

I’m watching, that Amash seems to have forgotten he’s a republican. He actually asked reasonable questions and let Cohen answer. He comes from a district that is 84% white and voted for Trump by 9.4 points. Hmmm. I wonder if he’s worth paying attention to or if he’s a Flake.


#1063

Gibbs’s voice is about to break. Oh the injustice!


#1064

He co-sponsored the House bill to block trump’s national emergency. He’s very conservative, but as Republicans go I get the impression at least he has principles.
