As we all know. This week sets a rapid-fire succession of 3 back to back congressional hearings (one public, and 2 private), for Michael Cohen.
So ladies and gents of the Twitter-verse, I dare to enlighten all of you, as we revel in what we learned in one of the most historic congressional hearings, we have ever seen in our lifetimes. I doubt the public hearings were anything like this one.
Apparently, there was truth to what Michael Avennati and Stormy Daniels have been claiming all along. It just so happened that Michael Cohen brought the receipts…in fact, he brought 6b receipts. #Winning
In his leaked opening statement, it was clear that Michael Cohen was going to unleash some dirt, and of course, Trump and his goons were at it again. According to Axios, who first captured this Tweet, Matt Gaetz. The DUI, gun-grazed GOP Rep from Florida has already started to threaten him. Take a look.
Hey @MichaelCohen212 – Do your wife & father-in-law know about your girlfriends? Maybe tonight would be a good time for that chat. I wonder if she’ll remain faithful when you’re in prison. She’s about to learn a lot..
I mean. These Republicans have gotten away with overseeing their own damage to this country, for self-benefit, and now that there’s real oversight, it is going to be a lot of people who feel threatened, and their finances threatened because let’s be honest. Who wants to give up all that free money, while the rest of us are out here dying and can barely pay our bills.
We’re making life decisions about rent or medicine. It’s absurd. Roger Stone may have even violated his gag order by emailing a news outlet directly and by-passing his customary Proud-Boy/Volunteer, account facade.
It’s just so obvi why Trump is over there with Kim Jong Un right now, with Minister Sergey Lavrov, who just happened to arrive in Vietnam at the same time as Trump this week. Not a coinky-dink by the way. Because he actually said on Monday of this week, which got buried in all the noise, that Trump asked for Russia’s advice about what to do during this meeting…ANYWHO. This is about Cohen. You can read more about that when you are done here: CBS News: Russia says US sought “advice” ahead of Trump-Kim summit on North Korea’s nukes.
So…Of course our Liar In Chief, Aka. “Shaggy”, as usual, says, “it wasn’t me”. Bill Clinton didn’t inhale or have sexual relations with that girl but we still impeached his ass right? Anywho. Both Cohen and the Department of Justice are on record in court, testifying that Trump directed these payoffs to 2 women in the last months of the 2016 campaign.
Prosecutors are now investigating the reasons behind Cohen’s lies to Congress about the Trump Moscow deal, in light of his Congressional appearance before the Senate Committee Tuesday, which was private, closed door, session.
The House Oversight and Reform Committee will stop at nothing short of revealing Trump’s financial dealings, his debts, his illegal workers, his pay-offs of silence to sway public opinion during the election, his business practices and even the phony Trump Organization that Cohen was the Vice President and Attorney for.
Senator Susan Collins, the disappointment she always has been and continues to be, led on post-Senate hearing, that the Senate gave Cohen “an extensive grilling”. She refused to say what questions were asked. Susan, we know how “tough” you are in plain sight. Just admit you folded like lawn chair behind closed doors and let’s move on, shall we? #BuhBye
Here’s another bone in my craw. Don’t know what that means, but it’s PG and that’s what I’m aiming for here. So Republicans of all the pot, kettle and blackness, I have ever heard, have the audacity to try and make their united front about attacking Cohen’s credibility because he’s lied to Congress before. Guess who, as usual, while still not being held accountable for his own scandals, is leading the charge? He and his cronies gross display of blind loyalty were disgusting!
Yep…Jim “Gymnastic Policy” Jordan, of my precious and downtrodden hometown of Ohio. Not only that, Cohen was the RNC’s deputy Finance chair as my Shero Stacey Plaskett, so brilliantly set up with her line of questioning. Which means, why the outrage Republicans. If he was, up until June of 2018, your…AHEM, FINANCE Chair?
Not only that…the way that “Gym” tried to come for Rep. Cummings, saying that he would be remembered for this first hearing…and him kindly getting body slammed…ALL puns intended, with the fact that that it wasn’t the first hearing.
Why are @OversightDems hastily issuing a subpoena? Maybe they want to be the first committee to issue a subpoena against this administration. Why not have a hearing first

It’s the ones who are benefiting that don’t want the free ride to end. It’s like the entourage that hangs out with the NFL player simply because he has money, he’s a commodity…right? They eat because he eats. He’s taken out from an injury by the opposing team during the Superbowl, they stop eating…so it’s the same thing here.
On a larger scale, Cohen, again, not only spoke but brought those receipts about personal characteristics that support Trump being a racist, conman and a cheat. Now we know why Trump is always questioning the intelligence of anyone black, just as he as done Maxine Waters, Stacey Abrams, Lebron James, The Central Park 5, any black person who applied to live at one of his properties, the rapist and drug dealing illegal immigrants that worked for him, and he paid to fake documents for.
White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders announced the following in a statement that didn’t address Cohen’s specific allegations:
“Disgraced felon Michael Cohen is going to prison for lying to Congress and making other false statements. Sadly, he will go before Congress this week and we can expect more of the same. It’s laughable that anyone would take a convicted liar like Cohen at his word, and pathetic to see him given yet another opportunity to spread his lies.”
This is cultism. I’m sorry. This is some David Karesh, blind ignorance bullshit that we have to put an end to. It’s absurd that we continue to allow these individuals to spin these sordid tales of alternative countries. I’m really tired of it.
Remember, Michael Cohen only became a “Rat” after the FBI did something which was absolutely unthinkable & unheard of until the Witch Hunt was illegally started. They BROKE INTO AN ATTORNEY’S OFFICE! Why didn’t they break into the DNC to get the Server, or Crooked’s office?
Rep Cummings, specifically called out this Tweet and what it meant to Micheal Cohen’s safety going to prison, as someone who grew up on the streets of Baltimore, MD. This is not good for Trump.
And I’m not giving Rep. Meadows a pass just because he claims to be BFFs with Rep Cummings. You don’t parade your family around, “I’m offended…I have nieces and nephews!…*Clutch Pearls*” WUT? I’m offended you needed to say that and that you had the AUDACITY to blatantly parade a mute nodding black woman, who’s got her bag secured, as proof that you guys are not racist. Are you kidding me? Kudos to Rep. Tlaib for making that point. She was absolutely correct! As a woman of color, I was offended! IT was disgusting!
A Shout out to rep. Ayanna Pressley with a calm and cool demeanor, and killer smile… literally. I saw a few points shaved off Michael Cohen’s life when she asked her question about Trump having a black friend around him, and then is it possible to still be a racist. WHOOO! I was waiting on her to say, so it’s kind of like how Thomas Jefferson OWNED those slaves, but still slept with them right?
Of course, who can forget the media darling, @AOC (Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez) For her line of questioning, setting Mr. Trump for potential Tax Fraud and evasion, among other things? Let’s hope that leads to something because hers along with Plackett’s comments were some of the most motivating questions, that could lead to other Congressional hearings, subpoenas, and indictments, OH MY!
They did a great job. If I were on the Congressional Committee, here is what I would have used my time to ask. I want to compile a list to make it easier for the people who represent us, so feel free to chime in and we can tag them on this post. Agreed? Agreed. #GetSome
L. Renee’s Questions For Michael Cohen From The American Public, Post-Congress:
- How many undocumented workers have you paid personally for Donald J. Trump, and/or how many illegal filings are you aware of, or took part in for workers at any of Trump’s properties?

And the last question, as I yield the rest of my time to Stacey Plunkett, who can walk and chew bubble gum at the same time, is. “Have you ever heard Trump say, out of his mouth that he is only the President of the United States to make a profit?”
Add your questions below and let’s make a list of questions to send to Congress and our list of witnesses who we think needs to be brought before the committee to testify.
