"...the law is beginning to squeeze [Trump] from all directions..."
Here's #45's personal lawyer of 10+ years telling America and the world in plain English that Donal J. Trump is a liar and a lawbreaker.
Will his cult believe Cohen? Of course not! They've invested too much of themselves to face the fact that Trump is corrupt and that they continue to support a deplorable man with no core values.
“He knows the truth. I know the truth. Others know the truth,” Cohen continued. “And here is the truth: People of the United States of America, people of the world, don't believe what he is saying. The man doesn't tell the truth. And it is sad that I should take responsibility for his dirty deeds.”
Of course Trump’s fan base will never listen to this warning, even coming from someone who was known for his loyalty to Trump for years. But prosecutors are listening to Cohen when he says that Trump knew about the hush money payments and knew that it was wrong but did it anyway to protect his campaign.
Eugene Robinson, WaPo:
"Now the law is beginning to squeeze him from all directions. [...]
The bottom line is that two witnesses, Cohen and AMI, independently now implicate the president of the United States in the commission of two felonies. The campaign finance case is being brought by federal prosecutors in the Southern District of New York. Back in Washington, meanwhile, special counsel Robert S. Mueller III has been busy, as well. [...]
Trump’s longtime accountant, Allen Weisselberg, has turned state’s evidence. He may be the Virgil who guides federal, state and local prosecutors through a Trumpian inferno of shell companies and opaque transactions. The outlines of Trump’s fate begin to emerge."
