Cummings all fired up now. It's like he was so calm all day and then BAM.

The concept that Cohen pled guilty to lying to Congress with the same lies that Trump and his cronies are still spitting out is amazing.

I just wanted Cohen to say that....

and the reason he pled guilty to lying to Congress, is because he was caught.

Maybe this is an oversimplification (those well-versed in logic and syllogisms please chime in), but:

if Cohen testified to Congress,

and that testimony was proven to be a lie in a court of law,

and his testimony today is directly opposite his previous testimony


then wouldn't that make today's testimony true?


Yeah, there's just so much to parse through where it's like, jesus, how is this not abundantly clear?

He was found guilty of telling the same lies to the committee that the committee is shielding Trump from. These are lies Trump tells daily. Yet the GOP committeepeople were condemning Cohen for lying without asking any questions about Trump's guilt. That's ludicrous. It's almost like they think we're too stupid to see what's happening in front of our faces. (Granted, their election often requires that.)

Challenger, Gray and Christmas, the firm responsible for labor stats, estimates that US workplaces lost $1.9 billion per hour in productivity during this testimony today. Yet those GOP guys want to keep asking Cohen if he would agree to a lucrative book deal. Come guy, GOP goobers, people want to hear more of this story, of course there will be a book deal and of course Cohen is not terrible for pursuing it.

every person on earth knows Trump is a lying criminal and all around phony and horrible person.

That said - Let me know if one single GOP breaks ranks or doesnt actively run interference on their MAGA hero's behalf.

Because that is all that matters.

Yes. I'm having trouble understanding why anyone paid close attention to today's spectacle. Depressing as the situation is, it's pretty clear that the GOP will continue to circle the wagons.

I enjoyed it. I got nothing out of it but the highlights were entertaining. I hope Jr. gets called to the stand more but this was fun political theatre.

Nothing was a game changer here nor will anyone be swayed.

It was highly entertaining television.
