Confirmed – Michael Cohen Will Deliver Public Testimony on Thursday February 7th….

In December CTH outlined the likely sequence of events that professional democrats will follow.  Michael Cohen and Robert Mueller provide the first parts of the foundation.  A week ago House Speaker Nancy Pelosi published rules confirming the general outline and sequencing.  Yesterday the DOJ confirmed the timing for Robert Mueller.

Today House Oversight Chairman Elijah Cummings confirms the timing of Michael Cohen.  Public testimony for Michael Cohen is scheduled for February 7th:

Washington, D.C. (Jan. 10, 2019)—Today, Rep. Elijah E. Cummings, the Chairman of the Committee on Oversight and Reform, announced the schedule for Committee hearings in January and February and issued the following statement:

“I thank Michael Cohen for agreeing to testify before the Oversight Committee voluntarily.  I want to make clear that we have no interest in inappropriately interfering with any ongoing criminal investigations, and to that end, we are in the process of consulting with Special Counsel Mueller’s office.  The Committee will announce additional information in the coming weeks.”  (link)

Again, there is very little doubt the approach has already been mapped out in post-election meetings between: Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer, the Democrat committee heads, allies in the lawfare community, political allies inside the executive branch (IC, DOJ, FBI etc.), along with feedback from political networks, DNC (Perez) and major resistance donors.  All the evidence to support this strategy was outlined in Speaker Pelosi’s Rules.

This was worked out months ago.  Michael Cohen’s deferred prison sentence is part of this planning and coordination.  Yes, the current DOJ helped coordinate and plan. It is virtually guaranteed the DOJ (SDNY) and Robert Mueller team members met with select emissaries of congressional democrats, Lawfare and media.  Together they had this outline drawn up immediately following the mid-term election.

So far things are proceeding exactly as CTH would expect.  The scheduled testimony for Cohen is the Thursday after the Superbowl (exactly as predicted).

[…]  House Oversight Committee (Cummings) and House Judiciary Committee (Nadler) will likely kick the resistance operation into action (after Superbowl) with Michael Cohen’s scheduled appearances broadcast on television for the better part of two weeks use. [*note, now confirmed]

That first phase event will likely be followed by a late Feb/early March dropping of the Mueller report. [*note, now confirmed] There will be a grand lead-in, roll-out and press spectacle designed for maximum exposure.  The tail end of that phase will lead to more hearings throughout March perhaps into early April with subpoenas based on the report framework.

Again, remember these are Democrats.  This stuff is already planned out in the broad strokes.  The upcoming congressional calendar has all of these events considered. Pelosi and Schumer have told their key underlings of preliminary vacation blackout dates etc.  Nothing professional democrats do is without specific intent, purposeful design and well communicated organization.  This is what they do. This is all they do.

While these events are happening the HPSCI will be demanding discovery from the White House and intelligence apparatus that will be spurred by Cohen and Mueller.  The DOJ and FBI will find a new interest in congressional compliance especially given the House General Counsel, Douglas Letter, is one of their allied Resistance members.

It’s important to note when we use the term “Mueller” in these contexts, CTH is discussing the special counsel team and not the individual.   Also when we approach the term “impeachment” we are not discussing it as the technical and legal approach for removal of a President; but rather the political use of the process to damage President Donald Trump.

Professional political Democrats would not be using “impeachment” in the constitutional sense of the process; but rather weaponizing the process -as a tool itself- to target the executive office.

From Pelosi’s rules, we now know Elijah Cummings will deliver the schedule for impeachment hearings before his deadline on April 15th.  The next likely witness to be subpoenaed, and to grab the media headlines will be Donald Trump Jr.

Unfortunately, too many people, on all sides, still refuse to believe the institutions of the DOJ and FBI are comprehensively corrupted.  Too many people cling to a belief that Rosenstein and Mueller are working honorably toward the cause of justice.

Until people awaken to the reality that all elements within both institutions, past and current, are infected with the metastasized cancer of politics little will change.

You’ll note that while all of this new public testimony is happening…. authorized and approved by Team Mueller…. simultaneously the DOJ is refusing to release transcripts from prior witness testimony to the House and Senate citing Mueller’s ongoing investigation.   This transparently obvious double-standard is NOT coincidental.

Rather than becoming frustrated, CTH will take the same approach we followed in 2015/2016 (the GOPe election road-map tripwires) and simply outline what to expect.  This should help interested readers make sense of what is happening.

  1. the Question is why didn’t Trump fire sessions “a year ago”
    have interim director, and take away the probe from Rosenstein – No conflict – No Obstruction,

        I do…..while I am disgusted with this FISA scandal, spying and corruption in the Mueller investigation I don’t think it will cost POTUS the election. Neither will Michael Cohen. Neither will the border wall/fence. Nor the multitude of other important issues including DOJ acting AG Whitaker. “It’s the economy, stupid”….Bill Clinton had it right. Trumps approval with Republicans is off the chart. If the jobs, wages, unemployment, economy all keep humming, he will win a land slide in 2020. Perhaps from 2020-2024, he will have more opportunity to clean up the corruption. I’d the tariffs and stocks and jobs and economy tank…..he is done!

    I think maybe this is a major mistake in strategy, on the part of the Dems.

    Its basically using Cohen testimony, and Mueller report to review/reprise the same, tired accusations they have been making for the last 2+ years, that simply haven’t resonated.

    There is no reason to think that the accusations are going to resonate any more THIS time. Cohen is STILL a slimy liar, lawyer who taped his client without their consent.

    As for Mueller, his report will also not convince anyone not already convinced.

    And once Mueller issues his report, what excuse is there for blocking the I.G.Horowitz investigations, or the release of material requested by Congress?
    Since there would no longer be an ‘ongoing investigation’ and Rosie is leaving?

      Somehow the sacred client privilege violations needs to be front and center on all of this.

More than seething cold anger. Instead they gave Hillary’s lawyers immunity and got nothing.

  9. Bet SDNY and SC have already given a list of questions to Demos to ask Cohen. They have the tapes and know exactly how to frame it all look to make POTUS appear guilty of something. There will be ‘surprises’, traps, etc. Remember, they have everything and they have an allied MSM to whip all ‘revelations’ into a frenzy. Nothing positive to POTUS (or America) will come out of this.

    I believe the Dems’ immediate, overriding concern is the precarious state of RBG’s SCOTUS tenure and how best to stifle a replacement nomination in the event of her death or retirement during the Trump presidency. I’ve argued that the so-called “Biden Rule” (reiterated as the McConnell Rule?) will be their argument should the opening occur in 2020, and that impeachment will be their 2019 bridge argument if she retires/expires before then. The slogan writes itself: “No president facing impeachment AND THE POTENTIAL REMOVAL FROM OFFICE should have the right to make a lifetime appointment to the Supreme Court.”

    With Senate conviction and removal all but foreclosed (barring some new jarring evidence), time management will be crucial for the Dems–too early and Senate acquittal could occur in 2019; too late would be if the vacancy occurred and PDT hustled in a nomination before the impeachment process could be credibly said to have begun.

    The period that ran from the House vote to begin the impeachment investigation of Pres. Clinton to the beginning of his trial in the Senate was slightly more than two months long. Mueller’s grand jury has recently been extended for six months. Ideally, (meaning that RBG hangs in there), and beginning with the end in mind, the Dems would be expected to defer any serious impeachment activity until they could safely deliver a resolution of impeachment to the Senate as 2019 is winding down. Assuming RBG cooperates, the Clinton precedent and the apparent Mueller report track by no means prove the bridge hypothesis, but do suggest that it’s feasible. But because Ginsburg’s cooperation may not be assured, the impeachment trigger might have to be squeezed earlier than ideal (and before the Mueller report issues), so the Green/ Cohen resolution and other impeachment Mutterings are permitted.
