Listen to What Michael Cohen Said About Donald Trump Before Mueller Threatened To Lock Cohen’s Wife in Prison for Thirty Years

Elder Patriot| That special counsel Robert Mueller is a treacherous prosecutor who opened the door for Clinton sycophant Lanny Davis to coerce former Trump attorney into making incriminating accusations against his former boss is growing more evident as evidence continues coming to light.

During his opening statement to the House Oversight Committee on Wednesday, Cohen labeled President Trump a racist, a con man, and a cheat.  The former attorney to Trump, he has since been disbarred, didn’t always feel this way.

According to the Daily Mail, in the weeks before the Mueller-ordered FBI raid on his home, office, and hotel suite, Michael Cohen had been pitching a book that told a completely different story.

Cohen:

(F)irst and foremost, I think I have a unique point-of-view to offer,’ he bragged. ‘One that is based not on headlines, brief encounters or armchair analysis from afar, but on my own up-close and personal observations and experiences with Donald Trump and his family over the past dozen years.

‘That so many people are confused by Trump is not surprising to me. His world is a highly complex and nuanced place; it also has clear and very specific rules of order. Most people don’t understand that – or him – at all. That’s not really their fault. Because here’s the thing about Trump: Despite his hyper-public profile Donald Trump is — and has always been — an enigma to most people.

According to the Daily Mail “At the time he [Cohen] had nothing but good things to say about his boss who had entered the White House a little more than a year earlier.

According to the Daily Mail, one publishing executive doubted there’d be much interest in the book Cohen was promoting because “Everything he wanted to say about Trump was positive.

“Even in our meeting he was glowing with praise for the president.”

Cohen touted his credentials as a person who knew Trump as intimately as anyone, perhaps more because:

“… in his role as special counsel to the Trump Organization was ‘looking out for Mr. Trump and his family.’

‘Most of my work took place behind the scenes. Unless it was the sort of situation that required me to come through the front door with a wrecking ball, that is – in which case my involvement was pretty obvious.

‘No issue was too big, too sticky or too oddball for me to tackle. I saw it all, handled it all. And still do.’

He added: ‘Most of my work took place behind the scenes. Unless it was the sort of situation that required me to come through the front door with a wrecking ball, that is – in which case my involvement was pretty obvious.

‘No issue was too big, too sticky or too oddball for me to tackle. I saw it all, handled it all. And still do.’

He started his proposal with a list of unflattering barbs that have been thrown at Trump since he became Commander-in-Chief. ‘Crazy’; ‘Dumb’; ‘Paranoid’; ‘In Over His Head’; ‘Liar’; ‘Addicted to TV’; ‘Hates the Media’.

‘All of these things have been said about my longtime boss, Donald J. Trump,’ Cohen added. ‘None of it is true. Except maybe that last one – about the media. Trump does believe that reporters are out to get him, and for a very good reason. Many of them are.

‘That doesn’t make him paranoid,’ wrote Cohen. ‘That makes him a realist.’

At that time, again just prior to the FBI’s raid, Cohen was telling everyone that President Donald Trump is not crazy. Nor is he dumb or paranoid. Certainly he is not in over his head. Is he a liar? Nope. And he is not addicted to TV either.

There’s also this interview Cohen gave to CNN’s Chris Cuomo only days after Trump was elected:

Addressing claims that the new president is divisive:

“I blame the liberal media.  I believe they distorted his words from the moment that he came down the escalator all the way up to include the election.

“I think there is an inherent bias towards the Republican candidate and I think that Donald Trump was unfortunately the recipient of that bias.

“He is going to, without exaggeration, heal the divide.  He wants to heal the divide.

His message was never let’s make America great again for special interests or to make America great again for Republicans.  

No, it’s for all Americans because whether you’re Republican or Democrat – I’m a registered Democrat – for every American he wants to make sure they have a job.  

He wants to put America first.

He’s going to be the president for every every single person regardless of race, religion, creed, color.

What changed Cohen’s very public praise for President Trump?  For the answer we point you to longtime Cohen friend Lynne Patton’s Facebook page:

Cohen is doing what he needs to do to protect his wife and children.  Each is left to make their own decision about that.

That’s probably why his opening and closing statements on Wednesday sounded like they were written by Lanny Davis on behalf of Hillary Clinton.  Others realized this as well.

President Trump made sure everyone else realized this as well:

FUBAR!
