Michael Cohen: 'Donald Trump and Rudy Giuliani Threatened My Family'

I’m not a lawyer, or even a smart person, but this latest report from CNN sure sounds a helluva lot like obstruction of justice if true.

Emphasis mine.

“Due to ongoing threats against his family from President Trump and Mr. Giuliani, as recently as this weekend, as well as Mr. Cohen’s continued cooperation with ongoing investigations, by advice of counsel, Mr. Cohen’s appearance will be postponed to a later date,” Cohen’s attorney Lanny Davis said in a statement. “Mr. Cohen wishes to thank Chairman Cummings for allowing him to appear before the House Oversight Committee and looks forward to testifying at the appropriate time.”

Davis added, “This is a time where Mr. Cohen had to put his family and their safety first.”

Of course, it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out why the president is squirting liquified Big Macs into the Lincoln Bedroom while Giuliani can’t say more than two words without hilariously incriminating his client:


Namely, the explosive report that Cohen testified to the special counsel that Trump ordered Cohen to lie to Congress about plans to build a Trump Tower in Moscow, which would be grounds for impeachment. But, as we all watched in horror, the special counsel disputed Buzzfeed’s reporting, and well, you can set your watch to the horseshit that followed after that.

However, Buzzfeed is confident that its reporting is “going to be borne out,” and even the Columbia Journalism Review has no idea how this situation will shake out thanks to the vague nature of the special counsel’s statement.

And if Cohen’s claim that the president and his lawyer threatened his family as recently as this weekend — after the special counsel’s remarks — then it sure as hell seems like the Buzzfeed article jarred something loose.

Fortunately, our new congress is paying very close attention.

Wait. Was I right about lawyer stuff? Holy shit. Suck it, bar exam!
