The world renown Pathological and convicted liar Michael Cohen has been caught in another lie, and this lie may shed more light on the series of lies he has told Congress, negatively impacting his jail time.
Via patriot4truth; According to Fox News, “a lawyer representing former Trump attorney Michael Cohen said Wednesday that Cohen directed a lawyer last year to inquire about possibly receiving a pardon from President Trump.
The disclosure by Lanny Davis, first reported by the Wall Street Journal, directly contradicts testimony by Cohen last week on Capitol Hill, in which Cohen told members of the House Oversight and Reform Committee: “I have never asked for, nor would I accept, a pardon from Mr. Trump.”In a written statement, Davis said Cohen “directed his attorney” to ask about a possible pardon.
The WSJ added that it previously reported that Stephen Ryan, a past attorney for Cohen, discussed a pardon with President Trump’s lawyers in the weeks after FBI agents raided Cohen’s home, office and hotel room.If these statements are true, then it means Cohen, once again lied under oath before a congressional committee.
Among the more ludicrous claims made by disloyal and disbarred convicted felon Michael Cohen, is his assessment that if President Trump fails to win the 2020 election, he would not peacefully hand over power to the winning democratic candidate.
In his closing remarks before the House Committee on Oversight and Reform, Cohen said, “Given my experience working for Mr. Trump, I fear that if he loses the election in 2020, there will never be a peaceful transition of power.”
Immediately, left-wing pundits and other anti-Trumpers seized on Cohen’s words to propagate fear and loathing of the President.
After “Lying Cohen’s” internationally televised testimony, John Dean, President Richard Nixon’s former White House counsel, wrote an op-ed for the New York Times in which he drew parallels with his own defining testimony against Nixon, saying that he shared Cohen’s fears.
In the op-ed Dean said that Cohen’s warning about a violent transition “was the most troubling — actually, chilling — thing he said in his five hours before the committee.”Dean went on to say, “Since Mr. Cohen’s warning came in his closing words, there was no opportunity for committee members to ask follow-up questions.
So I double-checked with his lawyer, Lanny Davis, if I had understood Mr. Cohen’s testimony correctly. Mr. Davis responded, “He was referring to Trump’s authoritarian mind-set, and lack of respect for democracy and democratic institutions.”
Before we give any credence to anything that comes out of Cohen’s disgraced mouth, let us not forget that he is a convicted criminal, and has been rightfully branded a “pathetic liar,” by the White House.
Cohen is a convict who pled guilty to –among other things — lying to Congress in two separate prosecutions.
But none of that has stopped the left from using his words to lend credence to their ridiculous narrative of fear.
