Cohen Trump Tweets!:
Wow, just revealed that Michael Cohen wrote a “love letter to Trump” manuscript for a new book that he was pushing. Written and submitted long after Charlottesville and Helsinki, his phony reasons for going rogue. Book is exact opposite of his fake testimony, which now is a lie!
Michael Cohen’s book manuscript shows that he committed perjury on a scale not seen before. He must have forgotten about his book when he testified. What does Hillary Clinton’s lawyer, Lanny Davis, say about this one. Is he being paid by Crooked Hillary. Using her lawyer?
Congress must demand the transcript of Michael Cohen’s new book, given to publishers a short time ago. Your heads will spin when you see the lies, misrepresentations and contradictions against his Thursday testimony. Like a different person! He is totally discredited!
Oh’ I see! Now that the 2 year Russian Collusion case has fallen apart, there was no Collusion except bye Crooked Hillary and the Democrats, they say, “gee, I have an idea, let’s look at Trump’s finances and every deal he has ever done. Let’s follow discredited Michael Cohen........and the fraudulent and dishonest statements he made on Wednesday. No way, it’s time to stop this corrupt and illegally brought Witch Hunt. Time to start looking at the other side where real crimes were committed. Republicans have been abused long enough. Must end now! Cohen trying to save his wife from jail? https://www.facebook.com/633547903/posts/10157135090887904/
Lynne Patton: […] 3) Many of you may already know that I considered Michael Cohen to be one of my very best friends. Countless people can confirm that we were virtually inseparable during my employment at Trump – and that he is, single-handedly – responsible for introducing me to the Trump family and effectively changing my entire life. I would be lying if I didn’t admit that my heart still breaks for him and for his family, with whom I had grown extremely close. 4) What many of you may not be aware of is the fact that I can personally confirm that the ONLY reason Michael Cohen “turned on” the President of the United States is because Mueller threatened to throw his wife in jail for up to 30 years. Period. She is the co-guarantor of a $20M personal loan that Mueller discovered Michael secured back in 2015 by falsely inflating the value of his taxi medallions – effectively making her part & parcel to the federal charge of “Making False Statements to a Financial Institution,” to which Cohen ultimately plead guilty. This is also the reason why Cohen’s longtime taxi medallion partner, Evgeny “Gene” Freidman, was granted immunity. (read more) 10) In closing, Michael Cohen always wanted to be famous. Sadly, he has gotten his wish. I personally stopped communicating with Michael when it became known in May 2018 that he was defrauding various companies (from a Korean defense firm to a global pharmaceutical company) for millions of dollars by falsely claiming he could leverage his connection with the President to their favor.

Cohen’s $750,000 book deal! Michael Cohen pitched book claiming Trump was not a liar. | Daily Mail Online https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-6757251/Michael-Cohen-pitched-book-claiming-Trump-not-liar.html Cohen and the Ukrainian Mafia:
Kevin Corke, @FoxNews “Don’t forget, Michael Cohen has already been convicted of perjury and fraud, and as recently as this week, the Wall Street Journal has suggested that he may have stolen tens of thousands of dollars....” Lying to reduce his jail time! Watch father-in-law!
Trump on Fox News earlier this month said he isn't worried about Cohen's upcoming testimony, but suggested "he should give information maybe on his father-in-law, because that’s the one that people want to look at.”
In 1993, Cohen's father-in-law, Fima Shusterman, pleaded guilty to federal income-tax fraud relating to his taxicab business in New York, according to the Chicago Sun-Times. Shusterman also has ties to Chicago's taxi cab industry. Cohen got involved in the taxicab industry through Shusterman, according to The New York Times.
The Ukranian Mafia is alive and well in some of the larger cities in the US...specifically for this post and topic, Brighton Beach, NY...(near Brooklyn).
Supposedly, Cohen's wife co-signed one of the fraudulent bank loan applications, and Mueller was/is using her potential arrest as leverage to testify against Trump. She is involved in the "family taxi medallion" business, and Daddy is not very happy son-in-law Michael has opened a can of worms, shedding national spotlight on the Ukranian organized crime families, and their greedy operations.
Like the Mafioso, these people are brutal. Me thinks Michael is being quadruple squeezed between the U. Mafia, Mueller, SDNY and Congress. Thus Mueller's sudden shift and focus to SDNY....and Cohen's daddy-in-law not too pleased. Thus Cohen's refusal to answer some questions pertaining to bank fraud, etc: as this is part of an ongoing investigation in SDNY.
Anyone want to make bets as to whether Cohen makes it to prison alive, or in one or two pieces?

Two of President Trump’s strongest House allies on Thursday urged the Department of Justice to investigate Michael Cohen for perjury, accusing the president’s former attorney of intentionally lying to Congress during his Wednesday appearance before the House Oversight Committee.
GOP Reps. Jim Jordan, Ohio, and Mark Meadows, North Carolina, sent the letter to Attorney General William P. Barr.
“In sum, Mr. Cohen’s testimony….was a spectacular and brazen attempt to knowing and willfully testify falsely and fictitiously to numerous material facts,” they wrote. “His testimony included intentionally false statements designed to make himself look better before a national stage,” they wrote.

Regarding North Korea ongoing negotiations:
Great to be back from Vietnam, an amazing place. We had very substantive negotiations with Kim Jong Un - we know what they want and they know what we must have. Relationship very good, let’s see what happens!
Dagny: North Korea wants to save some nukes and have us drop all sanctions. No deal. This is all part of the process of negotiation.
Consider this: If the Norks think that the Democrats might successfully remove Trump and then the Democrats welch on the peace deal, why would they agree to get rid of the nukes? Impeachment talk is a sabotage of the negotiation. For more detail see: https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-6757367/North-Koreans-insist-Trump-demanded-nuke-deal-proposal-never-change.html Endorsement of Trump’s Military Border Barrier:
'Sometime in the next few days, Shanahan plans to endorse President Donald Trump's declaration of a national emergency along the southern border, according to people familiar with his thinking. That will free up $3.6 billion in the Pentagon budget for building new sections of border wall and other projects.
Shanahan has few qualms about using Pentagon funds along the border, viewing it as legitimate national security mission, according to a person familiar with his thinking who agreed to speak about Shanahan's view in return for anonymity. On a visit to the border last Friday,
Shanahan tried out a gun used by Border Patrol agents that shoots nonlethal pepper balls.He later deployed an additional 1,000 troops to the border, bringing the total, including active-duty and National Guard, to roughly 6,000.
Trump called Shanahan "a pleasure" to work with during a Cabinet meeting last month, noting that he had "done a really fantastic job" on the border.'
A federal Judge has ordered the British Spy Steele depositions to be made public:
A federal judge in Florida on Thursday ordered the release of depositions given by former British spy Christopher Steele and a longtime associate of late Republican Arizona Sen. John McCain in a lawsuit filed against BuzzFeed regarding Steele’s anti-Trump dossier.
U.S. District Court Judge Ursula Ungaro overruled requests by Steele and David Kramer, the former McCain associate, to keep depositions they gave in the BuzzFeed lawsuit under seal. Ungaro dismissed a lawsuit filed against BuzzFeed on Dec. 19, 2018, by Aleksej Gubarev, a Russian businessman accused in the dossier of using his companies to hack into DNC computers.
The depositions by Steele and Kramer, a former Department of State official, are likely to shed light on how the dossier was compiled and disseminated to U.S. government officials and the press. Ungaro ordered the documents’ release for March 14.

On Monday, 42 Democrats and two independents voted against the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act.
Every single Democrat and independent who voted against the Born-Alive Act has received money from Planned Parenthood in the past five years, according to CRP’s tracking of federal candidates:
Dagny: These same people who voted for infanticide are the same people who vote against the death penalty for felons, against guns for self defense for felons and illegals to vote…
They are against life for the innocent and for life of the guilty.
How clear can it get as to what these people are and who they are working for?
