And the Fact Is …

You-let-the-cat-out-of-the-bag-240x240President Trump’s former personal attorney, Michael Cohen, testified to Congress again this week.  In a few weeks, Cohen will be headed off to federal prison for three years or so after being convicted of lying to Congress in preceding testimony.  And based on his testimony this week, House members Jim Jordan and Mark Meadows have requested the Attorney General open an investigation into their allegations that Cohen perjured himself once again.

Now, readers might reasonably ask, “Why in the world would Michael Cohen lie under oath again this past week when he’s toddling off to Hotel Chez Fed?”

The answer may well have been provided in January in a Facebook post by a Trump official and Cohen friend, Lynne Patton, who works in the Department of Housing and Urban Development.

In her Facebook post, Patton reportedly said, “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.”  Patton’s post reportedly went on to explain, “[Cohen’s wife]  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.”

If this report is accurate and complete, then Mueller and the US Attorney for the Southern District of New York may have offered Michael Cohen this deal:  Give us information that will either let us convict President Trump of a crime or at least allow our Democrat friends in Congress to impeach the President of the United States or your wife will spend a long time in jail.

Of course, Mueller and the USA of SDNY would insist that Michael Cohen’s information would have to be verifiable and factual.  Wouldn’t they?

Well … we are talking about pretty much the same US Department of Justice that appears to have submitted falsified by omission affidavits to the FISA court to get illegal warrants to violate the civil rights of Carter Page in order to put the squeeze on him in much the same manner they’ve squeezed Michael Cohen.

We better hope that Attorney General William Barr is honest and diligent about ferreting out dishonest and corrupt attorneys and other officials inhabiting various offices of the US Department of Justice.  It’s getting more and more difficult for we, the people, to say convincingly as John Adams did that we have established a government of laws and not of men.
