I'm proud to say that I've lived in both Elijah Cummings' and John Lewis' districts.

Pubs are desperately trying to trash Cohen - not convincing so far.

Oh boy, here comes Debbie W-S.

I'm about to hit the hay but hours in, Dems trying to pry out info, it seems there is no Russian collusion in the election. Per this hearing things are as I had said: Trump is a bully and an unscrupulous businessman but he is not a traitor nor had the Russian government interfered in the election.

It's all awful but honestly, I don't need to hear Cohen testify his opinion that the president is a racist. I don;t really think that's the way to go with this.

I want to hear about stuff that happened.

I haven't been able to watch or even follow the play by play yet. I'd like to know that he told us something we didnt already know.

oh, that ain't good.

I remember a column by David Neiwert just before the 2010 Mid-Terms. He said that all the commentary seemed to be framing the election as a referendum on Obama. Neiwert said that he thought it was more correctly regarded as a referendum on FOX News. As little as 5 minutes of Republicans in action at the Cohen hearing make this seem a pretty good call.

Have you ever seen such a thing? it was as if FOX News itself was conducting the hearing despite the efforts of certain Dems to keep things more.... traditional?

there's a lot of "we didn't really learn anything new" going on from both sides. one side, of course, thinks that Hillary Clintion and her minions are trying to unjustly defame our Best President Ever®. A surprising chunk of the loyal opposition seems to dwell on the fact that the President's lies about business ventures and previously denied contacts are really no big deal since we already knew all that stuff. How did we get here? the President acts like a mob boss and we just roll over and go back to sleep if we aren't served up a big can of whoop ass?

Well,I think Cohen's testimony, despite the ludicrous partisan gridlock WAS a big can of whoop ass. How can all those tea-party/freedom caucus weasels be aghast at Cohen making money in the Private Sector when they don't give a rat's ass about the President of the United States doing the same damned thing? what a giant sack of horse shit.

when Cohen, who has worked with that guy for 10 years says he's concerned that he might not concede if he loses. that should shiver the timbers of everybody on every side of the fence.

As far as I know, understating the value of your business/holdings/whatever to an insurance company is FRAUD.

I wonder if anyone will try and come at him from that angle.

you can bet, if there IS a silver bullet that it's going to be finances.
something must have happened in that closed door meeting.
I heard the phrase "Russia Probe" on the FOX several times today without eye-rolling or editorializing.
still, I'm skeptical that a silver bullet can bring this guy down.

"I am not a crook" WHAM
"I did NOT have sex with that woman" WHAM
"If you like your insurance you can keep it" WHAM.

How many bald faced lies has this guy piled up by now? I'm beginning to think nothing can take this guy down.

Anybody tried to watch any of TRUMP’s C-PAC speech? Holy fuck. It’s all starting to make sense to me now. I’m sure the time I spent trying to make sense of that caused serious, irreversible brain damage!
