Mark Penn of The Hill, on Wednesday published an op-ed that pretty much lays out Robert Mueller’s plot to trap President Trump by way of the President’s former attorney, Michael Cohen, something which Progressives from the Clintons and Barack Obama down would celebrate if swamp rat Mueller were successful.
Penn a one-time Clinton advocate has seen this dance before with Bill Clinton’s impeachment and confirms what we have all suspected and it is that, on the one hand, Michael Cohen is the icing on Mueller’s cake. On the other hand, Cohen agreed to plead guilty to crimes that are not crimes., i.e., “campaign violations that were not campaign violations.”
I will say it again, Cohen’s first mistake was to retain Lanny Davis, a die-hard Clinton operative and fix-it man.
…The plot to get President Trump out of office thickens, as Cohen obviously was his own mini crime syndicate and decided that his betrayals meant he would be better served turning on his old boss to cut the best deal with prosecutors he could rather than holding out and getting the full Manafort treatment. That was clear the minute he hired attorney Lanny Davis, who does not try cases and did past work for Hillary Clinton. Cohen had recorded his client, trying to entrap him, sold information about Trump to corporations for millions of dollars while acting as his lawyer, and did not pay taxes on millions.
The sweetener for the prosecutors, of course, was getting Cohen to plead guilty to campaign violations that were not campaign violations. Money paid to people who come out of the woodwork and shake down people under threat of revealing bad sexual stories are not legitimate campaign expenditures. They are personal expenditures. That is true for both candidates we like and candidates we do not. Just imagine if candidates used campaign funds instead of their own money to pay folks like Stormy Daniels to keep quiet about affairs. They would get indicted for misuse of campaign funds for personal purposes and for tax evasion[,,.]
I will say it again, Cohen’s first mistake was to retain Lanny Davis, a die-hard Clinton operative and fix-it man who is feeding Michael Cohen a load of crap. As far as President Trump is concerned, he’s in the clear.
Mark Levin, in the following video, puts Robert Mueller’s scheme on blast. Robert Mueller is preparing an impeach report which is out of Mueller’s purview.
In the meantime, where the hell is AG, Jeff Sessions? Oh my bad, cozying up to the deep state while at the same time, sitting on his hands and claiming the higher ground. Of course, everyone else is wondering what planet Sessions is on.
