Opinion: The Cohen Testimony proves that the GOP will shield Trump at any cost!
“The ultimate result of shielding men from the effects of folly is to fill the world with fools.”– Herbert Spencer
The Michael Cohen testimony today to the Congress is only proving one vital thing. That the Republican Party and the Republican National Congress (RNC) will do whatever to defend him and to make Cohen look like a villain on his own. That the man who was working for the President for 10 years. He knew the President and was his personal attorney.
Cohen surely knows the secret behind the scenes deals made by the Trump Organization and the Trump Campaign, as he even was the Vice-Chair of Financial Committee of the RNC. Therefore, what the GOP is doing today is shielding the President at any cost.
There are no hard-hitting questions from the GOP. The GOP is only using bait-lines for the Breitbart, Fox News and even InfoWars. That is what the GOP have become, they are not trying to dig into what Cohen knows. Which is weird, seeing how the GOP used hours upon hours putting Hillary Clinton under fire and questioning her. That for selective committee hearing and checking her actions in the past as Secretary or State and elsewhere. Therefore, the acts of the GOP is really foolish.
If the GOP thinks this is wise, they are playing the short-con. They are accepting the crimes of the possible President. They are not looking into the information that Cohen has on Trump or any of his associates. Even as they are afraid of the reality to hit the fan or getting to deep. Because, that make their base smile and giddy. But they are not the party of patriots and neither of loyalty to the Republic.
Everything Cohen has does is now put under fire and that is natural. Not because he is a felon, but because his paper trail and his documents are now evidence under investigations under the Southern District of New York and also by the Special Counsel. Therefore, this can also shed light on what Trump has done and not in concern of “catch and release” stories, also the the trade deals with the Moscow Tower and other connections to Kremlin. As today, there even stated that Trump had Russian Mobster Felix Sater on his own floor of the Trump Tower. Even having the office, which Cohen used to have. Therefore, it is interesting that the law and order party of the GOP has nothing to say about that.
That is because they are shielding their President by any means. This is what we have learned today. Instead of finding the truth, seeking the truth or even ask the hard questions, they are on a own duck-hunt. They are playing Nintendo with the public and hoping they won’t catch their game. They have used their time and this hearing for something useful. To gain interesting information, but then they would possibly hurt their President. However, that doesn’t matter to them. That they would only do, if there was a Bill Clinton or a Democratic Party elected one. They would never dare to cross and show true honour.
Instead, they are letting this go. Wasting time and playing the short-con. They are not gaining new information or even showing some effort for an investigation. Because the GOP have a heart in it, when they can do it to the other party, apparently. But not when its about their own. They just have to blind sheep following their leader and use the same rhetoric.
It is weak tea, really, really weak tea. Peace.
