Elder Patriot – Earlier, we asserted that longtime Clinton operative Lanny Davis orchestrated everything about the House Oversight Committee hearing yesterday, as the opening act in the broader Pelosi-led plan to impeach Donald Trump.
That plan will consume the business of the House, as well as the reporting of the mainstream media, over the next six months.
Cohen’s closing statement – something that in itself has rarely been permitted a witness – further confirms our conclusion that what we were watching was the kickoff of the Democrats’ 2020 campaign to topple President Trump.:
Michael Cohen sounded like a Democrat Party infomercial:
“I’d like to say directly to the president: We honor our veterans — even in the rain. We tell the truth even when it doesn’t aggrandize you. You respect the law and our incredible law enforcement agents. You don’t villainize them.
“You don’t disparage generals, Gold Star families, prisoners of war and other heroes who had the courage to fight for this country. You don’t attack the media and those who question what you don’t like or what you don’t want them to say and you take responsibility for your own dirty deeds.
“You don’t use your power of your bully pulpit to destroy the credibility of those who speak out against you. You don’t separate families from one another or demonize those looking to America for a better life. You don’t vilify people based on the god they pray to and you don’t cuddle up to our adversaries at the expense of our allies. And finally you don’t shut down the government before Christmas and New Year’s just to simply appease your base.
“This behavior is churlish, it denigrates the office of the president and it’s un-American and it’s not you.”
This was over the top hyperbole even for Lanny Davis. There’s no way Cohen wrote these closing remarks. He doesn’t think in those terms. No “fixer” does.
Cohen even gave new life to the rhetorical attack that Hillary Clinton conducted against candidate Trump at the third presidential debate of 2016:
“Given my experience working for Mr. Trump, I fear that if he loses the election in 2020 that there will never be a peaceful transition of power.”
Nice try Lanny, but Americans have endured and are waking up to the left’s weaponization of our intelligence community, based on Hillary Clinton’s bought and paid for “dossier,” that hasn’t yet allowed a peaceful transition of power to our president.
In fact, this hearing was just another extension of the Clinton-Obama led resistance against Trump.
Michael Cohen was right about one thing. He was right when he called himself a fool.
