“Trump Was Totally Caught Off Guard by the Cohen Plea”:
Inside Trumpworld, People Are Pooping.
vanityfair.com/news/2018/11/i…
Exactly what Cohen told Mueller during SEVENTY HOURS of interviews has been among the most unnerving unknowns for those closest to DT ever since Cohen began cooperating w the SCO in the summer.

“If anyone can 💥 Trump, it’s him,” a former West Wing official said in June.
💣 The detonation began on Thursday 11/29/18 when Cohen pleaded guilty to lying to Congress, accompanied by a detailed plea agreement, a new set of facts that begin to fill in a picture.

To the 🍄 camp, it was ominous. “The Cohen news is very bad,” a former WH staffer said.
Mueller waited until after Trump submitted written answers under oath to the special counsel’s office—some of which reportedly included responses to questions about Trump Tower Moscow—before revealing the evidence prosecutors had gathered to secure Cohen’s plea. ♟
Trump’s erratic responses suggest he was surprised by the news. 🧻

At first, Giuliani released a blistering statement saying Cohen is “a proven liar...”
Prior to departing for G20, Trump called Cohen “weak” & accused him of “making up a story.”

Hours later, Giuliani told NYT that 🍄’s sworn answers to Mueller matched Cohen’s version of events.

“Why would the president come out and say Cohen lied?” the former staffer said.
In the days leading up to Cohen’s plea, Trump’s legal team had grown increasingly annoyed with the special counsel’s office for stonewalling.
Giuliani vented to a friend that Mueller’s office stopped communicating w him after he delivered Trump’s answers. 😂

“They’ve gone dark, Rudy is extremely frustrated. He thinks Mueller is acting like some jr USAtty whose got his panties in a wad & doesn’t want to talk to you.”
Giuliani also complained that Mueller is delaying submitting his report to the Justice Department until the Democrats have taken control of the House of Representatives in January. (Giuliani did not respond to a request for comment.)
Cohen’s plea also re-ignited fears that @DonaldJTrumpJr will be next to be indicted. 😰

“Don’s been telling people he’s very worried after today,” a source said.

[Good. He should be]

(Jr.’s attorney did not immediately respond to a request for comment.)
Mueller now appears to be driving the West Wing agenda, with the principals in a reactive crouch; there’s a sense of loss of control.

“It’s an untethered situation,” a person close to Trump said.

[Maybe y’all should’ve thought about that before y’went treasoning everywhere. 🙄]
