Chuck on the right side
THIS IS A BLOG THAT TRIES TO APPEAL TO THE AVERAGE CONSERVATIVE CITIZEN AND HAS NO AGENDA OTHER THAN TELLING THE TRUTH AS WE SEE IT.
That phrase was recently used by ex-president Barack Obama during his campaign for president in September, 2008, supposedly in reference to the Republican vice-president candidate, Sarah Palin. That phrase generally means that you can dress something up, but it
doesn't change what it is. Well, after listening to the testimony of President Trump's ex-lawyer (and now an ex-lawyer of the bar) Michael Cohen before a congressional committee, that proverb seems to sum up the extent of his self-serving testimony in trying to mitigate is felony conviction and prison sentence. Yes, Mr. Cohen, you can put lipstick on a pig, but you are still a pig.
What a disgrace to witness the Democrats on that “kangaroo court” congressional committee as they “kiss up” to that convicted felon mainly because they want to use Michael Cohen as a foil to discredit the hated President Trump and possibly use his testimony for a future impeachment procedure. Just about a year ago, when Cohen was still employed by the president as his personal attorney, he was vilified by those very same members of that committee as a despicable person. Boy, how these chameleons change when they can get someone, like Cohen, to trash President Trump, especially in a forum like a congressional hearing.
What kind of a trusted lawyer was that now contrite Michael Cohen to his client Donald Trump? Imagine your lawyer recording your private conversations without your permission and then testifying against you after he had been found to be a fraud and a future felon, in order to try to save himself from a long prison sentence.
Whatever happened to the principle of the lawyer-client relationship being sacrosanct? What can you believe when that certain someone has been deceitful over and over again, even under oath. He now pleads that he is now contrite and that he is sorry for his actions. The only thing he's sorry about is that he was caught and that as an admitted fraud and now a felon, he is trying to mitigate his prison sentence by “throwing President Trump under the bus”. What kind of person is that who would work for someone for ten years, doing various jobs for a man who hired him to work for him with some sort of implied loyalty, and then doing a 180 degree turn and then calling him a liar, a fraud, a con man, and a racist when he got caught doing
illegal things in order to save his hide?
It was quite obvious that the Democrats planned this hearing right at the time that President Trump was overseas trying to bring peace to the troubled Korean peninsula and to Asia in general. Couldn't this “sham” hearing have been held after the president returned from his
summit meeting with Kim Jon Un of North Korea? This was orchestrated to minimize the positive response President Trump normally gets with his foreign negotiations with leaders around the world. Is this what the Democrats want to make America great again? Or, are they only interested in getting Donald Trump out of the oval office by hook or crook, the country be damned?
Again Mr. Cohen, you can put lipstick on a pig, but you are still a pig, and no matter how hard you try, you will remain one.
