Cohen Gets Cold Feet – Cummings, Schiff and Nadler Warn: “Not appearing before Congress is not an option”…

Former Trump lawyer Michael Cohen is scheduled to appear in front of the House Oversight Committee and Chairman Elijah Cummings on February 7th.   Cummings, Schiff and Nadler have a plan to use Cohen to build their political resistance effort.

However, today Michael Cohen, through his DNC handler Lanny Davis, attempted to back out of testimony by accusing President Trump of threatening him.

New York – “Due to ongoing threats against his family from President Trump and Mr. Giuliani, as recently as this weekend, as well as Mr. Cohen’s continued cooperation with ongoing investigations, by advice of counsel” he will postpone appearing, Lanny Davis said in a statement. “This is a time where Mr. Cohen had to put his family and their safety first,” Davis added. (link)

According to prior communication, as relayed by Representative Jim Jordan, Cohen’s lawyer, Guy Petrillo, said Mr. Cohen would not be able to discuss anything concerning the investigation of special counsel Robert Mueller.  [Mueller continues to be the shield] Therefore it would appear the Cummings committee intent is to script an impeachment or obstruction narrative without Cohen able to answer specific questions.

It is very likely Cohen’s cooperation with congress was part of the reason why the start of his prison sentence was deferred. With that in mind, Chairman Cummings and Chairman Schiff respond to Cohen and inform him they will not accept his refusal to comply:

“We have received Mr. Cohen’s notice postponing his voluntary appearance in an open hearing before the Committee on Oversight and Reform. We certainly understand the completely legitimate concerns for the safety and security of Mr. Cohen and his family members in light of the attacks last week by President Trump and again this past weekend by his attorney, Rudy Giuliani.

“As we stated previously with our colleague, Chairman Jerry Nadler of the Judiciary Committee, efforts to intimidate witnesses, scare their family members, or prevent them from testifying before Congress are textbook mob tactics that we condemn in the strongest terms. Our nation’s laws prohibit efforts to discourage, intimidate, or otherwise pressure a witness not to provide testimony to Congress. The President should make no statement or take any action to obstruct Congress’ independent oversight and investigative efforts, including by seeking to discourage any witness from testifying in response to a duly authorized request from Congress.

“We understand that Mr. Cohen’s wife and other family members fear for their safety after these attacks, and we have repeatedly offered our assistance to work with law enforcement to enhance security measures for Mr. Cohen and his family.

“Nevertheless, when our Committees began discussions with Mr. Cohen’s attorney, not appearing before Congress was never an option. We will not let the President’s tactics prevent Congress from fulfilling our constitutionally mandated oversight responsibilities. This will not stop us from getting to the truth. We expect Mr. Cohen to appear before both Committees, and we remain engaged with his counsel about his upcoming appearances.”  [Link to Oversight]

Bottom line – Michael Cohen will be there to testify with Lanny Davis at his side.  Davis knows exactly what he’s doing.  Lanny Davis comes from the same political school as Lee Atwater. The claims of witness intimidation etc. are part of the strategy…. this is all a carefully planned stunt to build up interest.

Lanny Davis knows exactly what he is doing. Everyone has a role to play….

Once you see the strings on the Marionettes, you can never go back to a time where you didn’t see them.

    Perhaps Cohen is scared because Speaker Pelosi told President Trump there will be no security in the House until the government reopens. However, I think Cohen is really scared because he has lost track of all his lies and doesn’t want his sentenced extended for perjury.

    I see them attempting to employ the same tactics that President Trump uses, that is, a position of strength and winning, yet they are not used to those tactics. Sure, dems have a lot of wins, especially when they cheat, yet they are all preset and scripted.

    While President Trump follows his script, it is fluid, to account for different variances on the chess board. The dems, they have not the type of adaptation ability that President Trump has. See them flop like fish out of water.

    Anyway, they are playing to their base, who, sad to say, are not caring, nor astute enough, to open their eyes and see the deceptions being played on them.

      Trump is quarter-backing all of this strategy.

      Guess who is doing the most to counteract democrats? People outside the political sphere who are NOT targeting democrats but bad ideas and beliefs. Jordan Peterson, Dave Rubin, etc, etc, Take on their ideas not who is winning the MSM talking points. Eat your wheaties.

      With that said, being up on issues is important and I prefer to look for nuances and patterns so I won’t be blindsided. Ex. I foresee problems with promoting the CovCath kids in the media. The Catholic Church Archdiocese NOT on the same page. We know the past trajectory leading up to hear.. It keeps adding up. I suspect some parents and Alumni are not on the same page with other parents/principal/Bishop. Sandmanns Today interview was a nod to the left and a potential disaster while other families are hiring lawyers. Any meeting with the Native American is stupid and a potential disaster. .

      “On today’s show, I called on the Catholic Diocese of Covington, Fr. James Martin, Abp. Joseph Kurtz, and other members of the clergy to apologize to the students they defamed. I’ve just learned that today’s episode has been banned in Vatican City.” Michael Knowles

        If Lindsey Graham is really going to start supporting the President, he also has an opportunity to summons the very same witnesses as the Democrats because his committee will be the one supervising the Impeachment proceedings in the Senate. He actually has a legitimate reason to grill the very same witness under “Republican Rules” in the Senate.

      Trump mentioned Cohen’s father-in-law, in a tweet about Cohen, as someone who should be looked into. Not the physical threat that the Dems are bs’ing about – just a reminder to Cohen that if he starts ‘composing’ before Congress, Trump knows a truckload about his FIL that Cohen would be in mortal fear of becoming public. Iirc, his FIL is a well-connected Russian mobster of considerable means. He’s a physical threat to Cohen and family if exposed, not Trump.

        A lot depends on what Cohen and his FIL were mixed up in and no doubt Cohen if asked directly could choose to stay silent.
        What if the questioner was already in full possession of some true facts and posed the question as “Is it true that xyz………..” I don’t think it would be possible to shut the questioner down until the question had been fully asked, thereby getting the information out.

      December 2009 Rasmussen Reports: Tea Party Tops GOP on Three-Way Generic Ballot

      “Suppose the Tea Party organized itself as a political party. When thinking about the next election for Congress, would you vote for the Republican candidate from your district, the Democratic candidate from your district or the Tea Party candidate from your district?

      Democratic — 36%
      Tea Party — 23%
      Republican — 18%
      Not sure — 22% “

      This means the Democrats have MAX ~ 1/3 of the population. Conservative/Libertarian are ~40% and another ~1/4 refusing to answer or do not care. THAT was before Obama WEAPONIZED Racism.

      On top of that the Media has lost all control:
      Poll: Majority says mainstream media publishes fake news
      “[…]Nearly two-thirds of Americans say the mainstream press is full of fake news, a sentiment that is held by a majority of voters across the ideological spectrum.

      According to data from the latest Harvard-Harris poll, which was provided exclusively to The Hill, 65 percent of voters believe there is a lot of fake news in the mainstream media.

      That number includes 80 percent of Republicans, 60 percent of independents and 53 percent of Democrats. Eighty-four percent of voters said it is hard to know what news to believe online.[…]”

      And a January 2018 politico article.
      “[…]“The big takeaway is that Trump’s media marketing campaign is working, not just on his core, but on Republicans in general,” she said.

      Other key findings of the survey: Even as 84 percent say the media play a “critical” or “very important” role in our democracy, 43 percent of respondents had a very or somewhat unfavorable view of the press, with 33 percent favorable and 23 percent neutral. Just 15 percent of Republicans had a favorable view, with 68 percent unfavorable. Democrats replied 54 percent favorable, 18 percent unfavorable.

      Americans, Gill said, “see the media as a key and important part of our democracy but don’t see it as fulfilling that role.” […]” h t t ps://

    Cohen was never going to go to prison, hence the delay in actually going to prison.
    Cohen was to “Testify” as a condition of no prison… up to that/those dates.
    Cohen then would not go to jail as long as his testimony was “Found Helpful”.
    Cohen was expected to testify as needed for the rest of his life, if need be.
    Cohen had only one option from the beginning, and that was to provide “Acceptable Testimony”… As needed.
    Cohen would only “Breach his agreement” if he did NOT Testify.
    Cohen has no intention of NOT Testifying.
    Cohen’s latest “Threat” gambit was to bring a tongue lashing from Cummings so as to Solidify his “Need TO” Testify.
    Cohen was to “Get the Ball Rolling” by providing the Baseline “Facts/Concerns/Innuendo”.
    Cohen WILL PLAY BALL….
    Or ELSE.

    Mueller threatens Cohen with prison if he doesn’t play ball. No problem.

    President Trump mentions his FIL, and that’s called a threat.
    It’s only considered a threat to impugn President Trump.
    Has nothing to do with the FIL.

    It isn’t considered a threat because the FIL may have some “Issues” he don’t want talked about.
    It isn’t considered a threat because Cohen has some “Issues” he don’t want talked about.
    It isn’t considered a threat because Cummings don’t want the “Issues” talked about because it would make Cohen look like a douche and a pathological liar.

    Have I got this all right?

      I havent heard anything about Cohen getting to stay out of jail as long as he testifies. Where did u hear that?


      • Dutchman says:

        It is assumed that they postponed him starting his sentence, until after he testifies. No testimony, no reason to delay start of sentence.

        But no refusing to testify doesn’t delay sentence indefinetly, it hastens the,start of sentence.

    All Cohen has to do is take the 5th. They can’t make anyone testify after that point, period!

      If they give you immunity then they can force you to testify, then if you dont you will be held in contempt.


    • LAfnH20 says:

      But if he breaches a “Contract” with Mueller by Pleading the 5th vs testifying…
      He goes to prison.

      The only way he “Believes” he won’t go to prison, from the Mueller angle, is TESTIFY!!
      Any funny stuff and Hillary’s Lawyer will bury him.

      IF .. Snicker… he Testifies and it comes back to bite him (Lies/Perjury/Tapes) He goes to Prison.

      If he turns on the Globalists he goes to Arkanside.

      If he turns on the FIL he goes …

      If he turns on the President and the Country…. Nowhere To Hide.

      He Is boxed in.

      What a Maroon!!


      • Charlotte Powell Brooks says:

        Testifying won’t keep him out of prison….to testify is part of his agreement. His incarceration date has been delayed, not cancelled. And it won’t be cancelled just because he decides to hold up his side of the agreement.

    Well, I certainly remember Lanny Davis from the Clinton years. This is theater for the media to report on and gin up drama. The new AG needs to get right on those threats from the President…..

    My interest is Mueller. Where does he fit in.


    • Drain the swamp says:

      Barr believes Mueller is honerable. He trusts him and doesnt think Mueller would be involved in a witch hunt. But of course that could have been theater for congree so he gets confirmed.


      • Dutchman says:

        Mueller has leverage on Cohen, presumably, and can apply pressure.

        Will be interesting to see if the same entity that pursuaded Mueller to rebuke buzzkill story, pursuades someone to rebuke the idea that “Trump” and Rudy have THREATENED

        As is often the case, it will be interesting to see where this,story goes, over the next 48 hours.

        Who do you think Trump could get confirmed in a rino Senate?


        • Julian says:

          Trump got rid of the RINOs in case you hadn’t noticed.

          Trump went and campaigned and got MAGA Senators elected in

          Arizona (sort of)

          All New Republican Senators from these States.

          Do you really think any Senator who is not on board with Trump and MAGA approved could survive a Republican Primary against anyone more MAGA?!?

          Of course not!!

          They are all MAGA Trump Senators elected in 2018.


        • Drain the swamp says:

          Not too sure, but there are other ways to get someone loyal to him in there to clean up this mess. Like what he did with whitaker.


      • Julian says:

        Does Whitey Bulger agree with that assessment of Mueller?


  45. Timmy-the-Ute says:

    Seems like they want Donald Jr. to testify first, then have Cohen come later and contradict Donald Jr.’s testimony. Say Donald Jr lied before congress and cause a crisis that way. The Democrats will say they have to impeach before the President pardon’s his family.

    ANOTHER 3 Ring Circle JO . Clowns asking the “questions” making their inane political statements, witness lying with no ramifications, witness leaves and the media then carries on with further distortions. Same old, same old sh*t.

    Well considering the number of witnesses who perjured themselves during the Brett Kavanaugh supreme court nomination on behalf of the Socialist one more could hardly make that much of a difference.

    I mean to say, only a group of Socialist could come up with the idea to have a convicted lier testify before Congress. But, then again they had Hillary Clinton testify.

    Mueller and his team of tainted criminals seem determined to make themselves the laughing stock of all time.

    I would note that Schiff’s statement here is long on accusations and short on substance. What, exactly, is the nature of the supposed intimidation? What threats were made against Cohen or his family.

    Those details are left out purposely, but plenty of illegal activity is ascribed to the President and his associates. What a disgusting, reprehensible, calumny the Dems run. There is absolutely no morality left to the Democratic Party. How long will it be before this nation devolves into 3rd world status. It is coming faster than I would ever have believed.

    But if the plan (partly from Mueller) is to get Cohen to testify then
    why the debunk of the Buzzfeed story. It cohen now says yes the
    President told me to lie then he looks to people like he is lying
    how does that help thier case.

    Maybe we’ll finally get the answer to ‘where did you stay in ?🚨😎

    Oh … Finally Lanny gets to see his name in lights again.
    Settles everyone’s curiosity regarding why he took on seedy but staunch CONservative Michael as a client.
