TODAY: Michael Cohen Testifies In Russia Probe

ABC News reports:

Michael Cohen, Donald Trump’s personal lawyer and longtime confidant, will appear Tuesday before Senate investigators in the ongoing probe of Russian interference in the 2016 election, where he will face questions about a once-confidential proposal to build Trump Tower Moscow.

Cohen will meet behind closed doors with investigators for the Senate Intelligence Committee, which is one of at least four congressional committees looking into aspects of suspected Russian interference in the election. The committee has studied classified documents and quietly interviewed dozens of officials involved in the 2016 campaign, with the goal of documenting any foreign interference in order to prevent similar episodes from occurring.

Sen. Mark Warner, D-Va., the committee’s top Democrat, told ABC News he is concerned about the apparent discrepancy between Trump’s public statements about having never engaged in Russian business activity and the negotiations Cohen oversaw with a Russian developer.

        Ooooo. Tell me more Janet! I wanna be RICH like you must be by now!

    I do believe this is the beginning of the end, or at least the end of the beginning.

    I hope the Senate and House committees do not hamper Mueller’s investigation. All signs lead to Mueller building a solid case and we already know the House is hellbent on derailing any serious investigation. Let’s see how the Senate approaches this.

    • clay

      re. the House. I’m uncomfortable with Nunes starting up his antics, again.

      • gaycuckhubby

        How the fuck is Nunes still involved? Smh

      • bkmn

        Although if Nunes or anyone else really starts to mess with Mueller I have little doubt he would do what he needs to do to slap them down.

  • Tawreos

    Why would he need to be interviewed behind closed doors? How much classified intelligence would the president’s lawyer have access to?

    • clay

      Why would he be interviewed behind closed doors? To keep the other witnesses in the dark? Because it would be unseemly for Senators to be seen without their belts? To put weight on those who would leak?

      • Tawreos

        I guess I didn’t think of it like that, but it makes sense.

  • Joe in PA

    Oh please, oh please, yell “says who?” at Senator Warner. Please.

  • bambinoitaliano

    He either plead the fifth or answer every question with “says who?”

    The lies will be so immediate, ferocious and ridiculous that he will be told to “get the fuck out!!! Now!”

    I have a feeling going nuclear on North Korea is just not enough anymore. The shit gibbon will have to pick a more substantial distraction to bury the investigation.

    I so want this to be the tightening of the noose among Trump and all his cronies and I so want to crow about it on social media so all my Trump loving family will see it. BUT… I was all prepared with my “wow we dodged a bullet” the morning after election night and look where we are now. I just don’t want to be Charlie Brown to the political establishment’s Lucy and the football

    • Skeptical_Inquirer

      Wait until we’re talking handcuffs and perp walk. I’m not going to talk to the Trumpeteer in my office about his choices until I’m SURE Trump is out of office AND a few of his buddies are wearing orange.

    Ask Mr Cohen how many passports he has.
