Michael Cohen’s guilty plea left Robert Mueller one step closer to bringing down Trump

Michael Cohen shook Washington, D.C. to its core.

He pleaded guilty to lying to Congress about his dealings with Russians in 2016.

And this bombshell development put Robert Mueller one step closer to impeaching Donald Trump.

Cohen shocked everyone when he made a surprise appearance at a federal courthouse in Washington D.C.

He pleaded guilty to making numerous false statements about a plan to build a Trump Tower in Moscow in 2016.

Fox News reports:

After entering his plea, Cohen addressed the court for several minutes.

“Prior to the 2016 elections, I was a counsel and advisor to Donald Trump Organization. By 2016, I no longer did that work, but I continued to work for Donald Trump who became President of the United States, referenced as Individual 1 in the agreement,” Cohen said in court Thursday. “I continued to follow the political messaging of Individual 1 and his advisors. I was aware that individual 1 said he was not tied to Russia, attacks were politically motivated, and all interactions were terminated by the time of the Iowa Caucuses.”

Cohen added that in 2017 when he appeared before the Senate Intelligence Committee, he gave a “false” description of the Moscow Project.

“I asserted all efforts ceased in January 2016 when they kept going until June 2016,” he said. “There were more extensive communications. I said I never contemplated travel or spoke to Individual 1 regarding travel, but I did.”

The fake news treated this as a bombshell.

But Cohen still did not admit to anything that resembles collusion with Russia.

And no one has been charged with a conspiracy to collude with Russia.

This could be another supposed Russia bombshell that fizzles out.

  1. A genius. Ok, a genius at trading jobs and authority with James Comey making both men rich. Ok, a genius at taking a written appointment as special counsel to investigate Russian collusion in the 2016 election and turning it into a $25M prosecution for process crimes. 6 Russians, tax cheaters and a variety of people who Mueller continues to pound and threaten to sing or compose the destruction of Trump. A genius or a high powered thug?!!
    Then, as the ultimate betrayal of the American people, he has altered how law us made, all to satisfy his world class ego. Mueller attacked the jerk lawyer Cohen until he scared him to death. Cohen plead to a crime that the Election law did not make a crime. Mueller pulled a conviction out of a statute that makes the conduct in question legal. The right USDC Judge, the right US Attorney, immense pressure on Cohen and you have a brand new law created by prosecutorial zeal. You think that is genius. You lose, we all lose except for Mueller. Unethical, manipulative, no resect for the law, all the arrogance in the world. A bastard.

  2. You should refer to yourself as DrDelusional which not only are you but also in a complete state of denial.

  3. There would be NOTHING that MUELLER could find which Might Incriminating President Trump! NOT A THING!! May be we should investigating Mueller ~~ Often we are the mirror of our Accuser(s)!

  4. Meuller is as crooked of a lawyer? that ever lived, he has sent people to prison that he knew were innocent, and cost millions of dollars in payment to the families that he wronged, and he never was man enough to apologize !

  5. I said in previous posts that Mueller was several steps ahead of Trump, and was playing chess, while Trump and his people were playing checkers. New, from Fox News: Judge Napolitano, on Fox News, reports that in Paul Manafort’s guilty plea, Robert Mueller also required Manafort to plead guilty to uncharged state crimes in New Jersey, Virginia and California to “make it pardon proof”.

    Robert Mueller is a genius, and Manafort appears to be screwed!

  7. JD, I won’t lower myself to tell you what you really need to be told. Let me say, if you don’t stop writing comments to me, you will soon wish you had! You are such a digusting arrogant person I have no more time to deal with you.
    Y-O-U P-H-O-N-Y…….

  8. Yes, Ronnie, one thing we have learned in the last few days is HOW OFTEN Cohen has not only spent on the federal special counsel Russia probe, but how often he has testified for at least three state cases in New York, one on Trump Foundation scandal, one on state taxes and money handling and the third one is under seal.

    TRUMP, OR ANY PRESIDENT, CAN PARDON FOR STATE CRIMES. That means that Pence may pardon Trump after Trump is gone, but Trump will face numerous state cases and civil lawsuits.d

  9. Actually, Dan, many Democrats do not mind Trump beat Hillary — frankly, she was not liked by many Democrats. While you simplify everything to absurdity and make it all about 2016, most Democrats are totally celebrating the midterms of 2018 and are planning for the next election in 2020 since people have already announced for seats. Hillary is old news, the only ones who talk about her are Trumpers.

    I am learning to greatly appreciate Trump – – – he has done more to activate the Democrats and the young and females for the Democrats than anyone! Look at how much money was raised by Beto O’Rourke alone!

  10. Geez, M, if you cannot make a salient point, you just call people names — the logic of a middle schooler. Eric is (again) right, it is the house that decides whether to impeach. Can’t you admit that is correct point of civics?

    Second, I will add that people need to quit just personal attacks and better realize that Trump will be impeached by the House. He is unlikely to be removed, because that would take 2/3rds of the Senate. Now this failure to protect America by his lies about the Murder of Khashoggi is enough to impeach Trump right now!

  11. Good point, O Possum. There is so much hyperbole in this article to distort and frame Mueller, one of THE most respected people in DC, by both sides of the aisle, just because Trump’s followers do not wish to hear the truth about their leader. Trump admitted that when he said he could kills someone on 5th avenue in broad daylight and his (cult) followers would still support him.
