More media BS. EXCLUSIVE: Michael Cohen says family and country, not President Trump, is his 'first loyalty' abcnews.go.com/Politics/micha… What gets me about the media is that they actually expect people to swallow this unquestioningly.
“Cohen strongly signaled his willingness to cooperate with special counsel Robert Mueller and federal prosecutors in the Southern District of New York -- even if that puts President Trump in jeopardy.” Ok, ABC, please explain this.
Mueller referred the Cohen investigation to SDNY. That means it’s completely unrelated to his SC probe. If it WAS related, he wouldn’t have handed it off. So, given that, how does ANYTHING Cohen does in this case help Mueller?
Is Cohen going to “confess” to Russian collusion to get a lighter sentence for whatever it is he’s being investigated for in NY? How would that work exactly? SDNY is investigating Cohen, not Trump. SC is investigating Trump not Cohen.
IF Cohen had anything useful regarding Russia, SDNY would pass it back to SC. But Cohen himself says he has nothing WRT Russia.
“Cohen also repeated his previous denials of any personal involvement with Russian attempts to interfere in our election, declaring that he never went to Prague, as alleged in the Steele dossier, and never colluded with the Russians in any way.” So, what does he have to trade?
Nothing. This is just another attempt to create a mountain out of a molehill. Cohen again: “Cohen believes Mueller will not find any evidence that he had any illegal or improper dealings with the Russians.” There’s not there there. Yet ABC wants to milk the dry cow once again.
It’s clear from the interview that the investigation weighs heavily on him, as it would anyone. There’s been a ton of speculation regarding the goal of the investigation. It remains to be seen if he will be charged with anything, and, if charged, convicted.
What is clear from this interview is that he has nothing to offer Mueller. Therefore, the main thrust of the article, that Cohen could flip on Trump, is vacuous blathering.
