On Wednesday, February 27th, 2019, Michael D. Cohen testified in front of the House Oversight Committee about his relations with President Trump on important issues concerning Stormy Daniels, the Russia investigation, and WikiLeaks.  Mr. Cohen claims he’s tired of defending and protecting Trump, calling his former boss, “A racist, a conman, and a cheat”.  

Who is Michael Cohen?

For starters, he was President Donald Trump’s former lawyer and also known “fixer”. Mr. Cohen began working for President Trump in 2006 and all the way up to mid 2018. Being Trumps fixer, Cohen says, “I have fixed things, but I am no longer your ‘fixer,’ Mr. Trump,”  Cohen once called himself Trump’s right hand man but is now ready to take a stand and spill some information that has never been heard before at his testimony. This is the same Cohen that said he would “take a bullet” for President Trump and who once called Trump, back in 2016, “a generous man”.

Mr. Cohen admitted to being reimbursed by President Trump because he helped pay ‘hush money’ to Stormy Daniels during his 2016 campaign. In his recent testimony, he also mentioned President Trump’s son, Donald Trump Jr, talking to his dad about Trump Tower Moscow. Mr. Cohen previously lied to Congress about knowing anything about Trump Tower. He also disclosed some knowledge on WikiLeaks having something to do with Hillary Clinton’s emails during the 2016 election.

The only question that remains, is Michael Cohen telling the whole truth and nothing, but the truth?

Three months back, Mr. Cohen was sentenced to three years in prison for committing financial crimes and lying to Congress. His illegal conduct included, tax violations, lying to a bank, and buying the silence of women; they all claimed to have an affair with current president, Donald Trump. He originally pleaded guilty in two different cases in August and November of 2018, first to lying to Congress about Trump Tower in Moscow and the other about tax and bank fraud, and as well as violating campaign finance rules. All of this, just to protect his boss and himself.

Mr. Cohen was supposed to go to prison, starting, March 6th, 2019. But his three year sentence has been delayed for two months due to him recovering from a recent surgery.  Judge William Pauley agreed to reschedule Cohen’s sentence, so he will report to prison starting on May 6th, 2019.

The prosecution team viewed Cohen’s information as valuable and Mr. Cohen supposedly telling the truth, landed him less time in prison.

There is definitely more to come that everyone must pay attention to.

And that’s the tea sis.
