President Trump on Friday claimed Michael Cohen asked him “directly” for a pardon, an allegation that would contradict the former Trump lawyer and “fixer’s” congressional testimony last week.
Now this is the funniest SH!T out there. Of course Cohen asked for the pardon he was promised! That’s right, promised! Look, Michael Cohen would have exited far sooner if it were not for the promise of release through pardon by Donald Trump at the point in which Cohen would see any real time in prison. The problem with playing the Donald Trump “successful businessman” game is that all bets are off when Trump changes him mind. The mind change thing is arbitrary and unpredictable.
Talk to any sub-contractor in New York State that have worked on any of his projects. Talk to any one that’s done business with the man. He doesn’t deal straight. Steve Bannon created “successful businessman”. He is solely responsible for Trump 2016.
Now Cohen feels the sting of affiliation
“I am ashamed because I know what Mr. Trump is,” Cohen said Wednesday in his opening statement. “He is a racist, he is a conman, and he is a cheat.” — Michael Cohen
So in his own words, Michael Cohen enabled Donald Trump despite damage to his reputation and compromising his integrity. Cohen should rot in jail for this as should all those that are directly tied to Donald Trump’s fake history, fake business success. Judge Jeanine, the regular on Fox News and supporter of Donald Trump represents another case of Lawyer/Judge basically sucking up to a conman and taking whatever benefits she can derive. She, like Cohen, are die hard opportunists.
Judge Jeanine gave up her office after her husband was found guilty on one count of conspiracy, four counts of tax evasion, and 28 counts of filing a false tax return for hiding over $1 million in personal income as business expenses between 1988 and 1997. Truth is, she knew. She was part of it. She’s an opportunists opportunist GOP style.
On February 23, 1999, Pirro’s husband was indicted by the office of United States Attorney for the Southern District of New York on one count of conspiracy, four counts of tax evasion, and 28 counts of filing a false tax return for hiding over $1 million in personal income as business expenses between 1988 and 1997. That day, Pirro appeared with her husband at a joint press conference in response to the charges, criticizing the investigation as “invasive and hostile.” New York Governor George Pataki released a statement saying that the Pirros had been personal friends for “a long time” and that he and his wife “wished them well.” With the trial beginning on May 15, 2000, and closing arguments given on June 19, 2000, the jury found Pirro’s husband guilty on June 23, 2000 on 23 of the charges brought against him and not guilty of 10. In November 2000, he was sentenced to 29 months in a minimum security federal prison but received some leniency in exchange for waiving his right to appeal. In the midst of the trial, Pirro had attacked the prosecution for bringing up matters which involved her, calling it a “desperate attempt by them to bring me into this wherever they can.”
