The newly-elected Democratic Party controlled House of Representatives is rolling out their first public testimony with the ostensible intent to reveal the "truth" about President Donald Trump. Everyone knows that the goal, however, is to remove the President, as has been the Party's intent since before he was sworn into office. Giving it their best shot, Trump's former lawyer and "fixer" Michael Cohen is taking the stand before the Committee on Oversight and Reform. His prepared testimony has been released to the public. It reads like a Democratic campaign commercial, attacking Trump with perceptions, hearsay, and the revelation of no new details, but repackaging them for greater impact.
Cohen begins his prepared testimony by stating: "I am ashamed that I chose to take part in concealing Mr. Trump's illicit acts rather than listening to my own conscience. I am ashamed because I know what Mr. Trump is. He is a racist. He is a conman. He is a cheat. He was a presidential candidate who knew that Roger Stone was talking with Julian Assange about a WikiLeaks drop of Democratic National Committee emails. I will explain each in a few moments. I am providing the Committee today with several documents. These include: A copy of a check Mr. Trump wrote from his personal bank account - after he became president - to reimburse me for the hush money payments I made to cover up his affair with an adult film star and prevent damage to his campaign;
"Copies of financial statements for 2011 - 2013 that he gave to such institutions as Deutsche Bank; A copy of an article with Mr. Trump's handwriting on it that reported on the auction of a portrait of himself - he arranged for the bidder ahead of time and then reimbursed the bidder from the account of his non-profit charitable foundation, with the picture now hanging in one of his country clubs; and Copies of letters I wrote at Mr. Trump's direction that threatened his high school, colleges, and the College Board not to release his grades or SAT scores. I hope my appearance here today, my guilty plea, and my work with law enforcement agencies are steps along a path of redemption that will restore faith in me and help this country understand our president better."
Cohen goes on to give an "insiders' view of the details of each of the topics he lays out.
Certainly, the next few days of testimony and questioning will focus on all the things that the Democrats believe Trump did that were unethical or what they believe to be illegal. It will be amplified by the news media. Amidst all the grandstanding, there may be some truth. If what Cohen says is even partially true, it is damaging to Trump, but it is not anything we already didn't know. Underlying this circus show is the very fact that Trump was not the choice of the Democrats or the establishment Republicans, and they are using every means to remove him from office. Beware of what you read and hear for as written in Isaiah 59:14, "
justice is turned back, and righteousness stands afar off: for truth is fallen in the street, and equity cannot enter." A little bit of truth makes a better lie and deception from an evil word tips the scales of justice.
