Donít Be Concerned About Michael Cohen
Rush Limbaugh.com ^ | July 27, 2018 | Rush Limbaugh

Posted on 07/27/2018 2:43:37 PM PDT by Kaslin

RUSH: I’m sorry. I’ve gotta deal with something CNN has been doing the past couple of days, CNN and the Drive-By Media. And it’s time to once again interject a little common sense here.

As I’m sure you know, CNN has been breathlessly reporting that Michael Cohen, all these tapes with Trump and Trump said all these incriminating things and then that Michael Cohen said that Trump knew about the Trump Tower meeting that his son took with the Russian honey pot and all of that and that Trump has denied knowing anything.

By the way, Cohen doesn’t have any evidence for this. He has literally no evidence, and even CNN’s been forced to admit this. But let me just try to cause you to have no concern about this. Robert Mueller is relying so little on Cohen that he gave that case to the Southern District of New York. The U.S. attorney for the Southern District of New York has the Cohen case, not Mueller. If Cohen had anything that would help Mueller do anything with Trump, he wouldn’t have handed off the case.

So what Cohen is doing here is trying to get the best deal he can get from the U.S. attorney’s office, Southern District of New York. He’s trying to make it look like he’s got all kinds of dope on Trump and he’d be willing to give it up. But the thing that you have to realize here is very simple. This is not Mueller’s case. He gave it away. He gave it away weeks ago. He transferred anything to do with Cohen to the Southern District of New York like he’s done with pretty much every other charge that he has made in this case. He’s sent it off to some other court, some other jurisdiction.

The other thing that they’re trying to make hay about is Trump and Mueller all of a sudden interested in Trump’s tweets. It’s preposterous. I don’t know where CNN is getting its information, who’s leaking to them, but Donald Trump has been tweeting since his campaign. The idea that Robert Mueller just now got interested in ’em? I mean, if that were true — and it isn’t — but if it were true it would mean that Mueller doesn’t have anything. But the idea that Mueller’s been ignoring these tweets all this time?

But about the tweets. The tweets are not evidence. The tweets don’t show anything. They’re nothing more than what Trump’s thinking or saying at the time. There’s nothing actionable in the tweets. This is like trying to say that exit poll results count more than real votes. There’s nothing here.

In fact, if any of you are still concerned about this, there isn’t going to be an indictment of Donald Trump from the special counsel. The only concern that everybody should have about this is impeachment. That’s where this investigation has always been going. And this investigation’s phony anyway. The Mueller investigation is an offshoot of all of the illegality that took place on the Democrat side and on the Hillary side.

It is simply to cover up all of that, because, remember, when this campaign began, the Department of Justice, the Democrat Party and everybody in the Obama apparatus had to make sure that Hillary was exonerated of any crimes involving her illegal server and trafficking in classified data, and all of this has been about exonerating her and framing Donald Trump.

But there isn’t gonna be any indictment of Trump, he hasn’t obstructed justice, he hasn’t colluded, and so all there’s gonna be is a report that’s gonna question Trump’s fitness, maybe his thinking, maybe his reactions, and it will be setting up an impeachment proceeding if the Democrats win the House. And as an ancillary thing, maybe they’re gonna try to once again drive Trump’s approval numbers down.

But this stuff that CNN’s hyperventilating with today over Cohen, you just need to stop and think, it’s not even Mueller’s case. Oh. And speaking of that. I have a piece here by Julian Zelizer, CNN political analyst. “Trump Sounds Normal in Private. It’s All an Act.

CNN thinks they figured Trump out. They have been listening to the tapes with Trump on the phone and Trump talking to Cohen. And they have concluded that he sounds normal as anybody else does on the phone. He doesn’t sound crazy. He doesn’t sound mean. He doesn’t sound insane. And so obviously the Trump that appears on TV is acting.

And you know why he’s acting? Because he knows that you, his supporters, are a bunch of lamebrain idiots that he has to act for. He has to perform in such a way to make you think that he is a continuing victim, that everybody’s out to get him. He has to talk in these mean-spirited, bigoted ways to relate to you. Oh, yeah. That’s CNN’s latest big discovery.

“Reading anything into a short, grainy tape recording is difficult. But from the moment that CNN’s Chris Cuomo shared one of the Michael Cohen tapes, experts have sliced and diced the audio to figure out exactly what then-candidate Donald Trump knew about a payment to keep his alleged affair with former Playboy playmate Karen McDougal off the front pages.”

Thanks. But all this well thought through rationalization does not matter. If the Dems win the House, any action or inaction or word or utterance by Trump will be a subject of investigation. His administration will be paralyzed, and cabinet members will be bludgeoned into resigning. Impeachment will only be the start, not the end of their actions against Trump.

Unlike the Democrat Media, which can only weave news stories, the Democrat House will generate an endless list of subpoenas, effectively freezing the presidency....

Wealthy people need various attorney’s with different skill sets. Cohen happens to be Trump’s “Better Call Saul” attorney.

President Trump sounds normal all of the time.. Obama sounded like a blabbering idiot when he wasn’t on teleprompter.

CNN 24/7 breathlessly, hoping. Hilarious to watch the likes of Toobin trying to convince Cooper or Blitzer and vice versa. 😂

How many in government; how many celebs; how many talking heads; how many in the MSM say "FOLLOW ME ON TWITTER"....You would think that President Trump AND only President Trump used twitter.

POTUS uses that communication method to get in front of CNN and like MSM to get the truth out before those entities can twist and muddle the facts.....Andrea Mitchel and Morning Joe come to mind as just the tip of the lying MSM and college/university professors false news speak.....

And if the democRATS don’t win back the House, then all of this well-thought out doomsday scenario would not happen or matter.

I’ve been too busy this week to keep up with the Cohen stuff. But has Cohan done or said anything that actually hurts Trump? Or is he being subtly pro-Trump by putting out little tidbits of nothing here and there that the media play up like they’re big deals...only for it to be nothing that would matter legally. I wouldn’t be surprised if Mueller has scared Cohen enough to turn on Trump. But I also wouldn’t be surprised if Cohen is just playing along in a way that doesn’t hurt his client (which keeps his street cred up for future clients).

Robert Duvall should visit Cohen and tell him how much better it would be to take a hot Bath and do the right thing.

Either that, or take him out Fishing in a Boat on Lake Tahoe.

“He’s trying to make it look like he’s got all kinds of dope on Trump and he’d be willing to give it up.”

Trump must be the cleanest politician that has come along since George Washington. 90% of the politicians in DC would have been gone long ago under that kind of scrutiny.

Democrat Impeachment talk dooms their party because it incentivizes Trump to boom the economy.

Their own behavior makes Dems into FOOLS.

Very simply if there were anything at all that was going to bring Trump down, it would have been leaked months ago to every press outlet in the world - not to worry.....

Agree

BUT

When Lanny Davis (either the best case of getting the fox to guard the henhouse OR DJT is a candidate for a Darwin Award(living side) for not distancing himself from Cohen the day he hired the WJC LACKEY Lanny Davis to represent him. Then again, ‘crooked lawyers’ know who the best ‘crooked lawyers’ are when it comes to their own ass.

The straw to break the camels back will be when Cohen & Davis team up to represent Stormy & the Playboy model - that move would more than likely get them both a ‘vacation’ in Fort Marcy Park.

This Cohen jerk has the same goofy facial expression that Gomer Pyle had on the Andy Griffith show. Kind of a stupid hang-dog expression. Probably a reflection of his IQ!

Yes, I too am flabbergasted by the “Fox in the Henhouse” phenomenon among high profile people connected with Trump and those in the Republican circle - started with Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner hiring lawyer Abbe Lowell to represent him - Lowell, like Davis, had represented a number of big-name Democrats in the past - like Bob Menendez and John Edwards - are there really no brilliant Republican lawyers to defend our side? - people who aren’t likely to use their position to gain inside information that will eventually be used to try to destroy the party - just one more hurdle.....
