Democrats believed February 7 was the day they finally could begin moving on impeaching Donald Trump.
But those dreams just went down in flames.
That’s because a judge just explained how this plan by the Democrats was doomed to fail.
Fox News legal analyst Judge Andrew Napolitano threw a giant bucket of cold water on the idea that the Democrats could use former Trump attorney Michael Cohen’s scheduled Congressional testimony to drive a stake through the heart of the Trump Presidency.
Cohen canceled his appearance because he claimed Trump “threatened him.”
Napolitano mocked this claim.
“Cohen says the president threatened me. So what is a threat? There are two threats. One is something that we all know is a threat. If you show up I’m going to break your legs. That’s obviously a threat. The other is something that the witness perceives as a threat that doesn’t really threaten the rest of us. So if the president says your father-in-law’s a mobster and probably should be investigated by the [Department of Justice], is that a threat? I don’t think that that is a threat,” the Judge explained.
Napolitano also detailed why he believe Cohen’s testimony would have proven to be a dud anyway.
The Daily Caller reports:
Napolitano said congressional Democrats will subpoena Cohen, President Donald Trump’s former lawyer, and try to get him to testify before he goes to jail on March 6. He also said people will forget all about Cohen once he actually begins serving his prison sentence.
“What are the Democrats going to do? They’re going to subpoena him,” he said. “How much time do they have? Six weeks. Because on March 6 he goes to jail. And the court is not going to delay that nor are they going to let him out of jail to come and testify to Congress.”
“Something will come out of his mouth under oath before the Congress, aimed at driving the White House crazy. And then we’ll forget about it once he’s in jail,” Napolitano concluded.
The Cohen testimony will end up being another overhyped Russia dud.
If Cohen had anything on Trump in terms of Russia, it would have been in his plea agreement.
