Michael Cohen needs your help so he can rat out Trump.
His attorney, Lanny Davis, has set-up a GoFundMe, which the Clinton confidant dubs the “Michael Cohen Truth Fund.”
“On July 2, 2018, Michael Cohen declared his independence from Donald Trump and his commitment to tell the truth,” the GoFundMe declares. “Michael decided to put his family and his country first. Now Michael needs your financial help—to pay his legal fees,” in other words, to pay Mr. Davis.
The goal is half a million bucks. As of Wednesday the fund generated $37,500 in donations.
Cohen was Trump’s “pit bull.” He went after people for daring to criticize the Donald.
“If somebody does something Mr. Trump doesn’t like, I do everything in my power to resolve it to Mr. Trump’s benefit. If you do something wrong, I’m going to come at you, grab you by the neck and I’m not going to let you go until I’m finished,” he said in 2011 during an interview with ABC News.
A couple years later Cohen leaned on The Onion for publishing a satirical piece about Trump. People are mocked by The Onion every day, but they aren’t Trump with his super-inflated gold-plated ego.
Cohen is a real piece of work. He resembles a Mafia consigliere. Here is what he told Tim Mark of The Daily Beast in 2013 after he inquired about Trump’s former wife accusing him of rape. “I’m warning you, tread very fucking lightly, because what I’m going to do to you is going to be fucking disgusting.”
He did Trump’s dirty work. He set-up a front company to payoff the publicity-seeking porn actress Stormy Daniels. This front company was used to offer “advice” to transnational corporations such as Novartis and AT&T—advice many later said was less than worthless.
Now that this slimy conman and turncoat lawyer is facing prison, he has decided to sing like a canary and take down his old boss. Davis characterizes the pit bull who threatens journalists as a heroic truth teller.
Hardly. He’s just trying to save his ass.
Cohen is simply another corrupt lawyer in a city jammed packed like a sardine can with thousands of corrupt and on-the-take lawyers. K Street is full of them.
Of course, they come in second to the politicians who sold their souls to be part of the establishment working for the financial elite and the corporatists. Selling out America is a full-time job and the water carriers are handsomely remunerated for their efforts.
Cohen sold out Trump.
Establishment politicians sell out the entire nation.
Bad actors proliferate in the dung heap of establishment politics. If Mueller was serious about routing out corruption, he would indict the whole of Congress, the DNC, and the corporations and banks that seed the corruption.
It is more productive and far less dangerous to make up lies about Russia—lies that millions of Americans believe—and accuse Trump of colluding with Putin to destroy democracy and steal the election.
