As I write this, the guy convicted of lying to Congress is testifying before Congress. And every single news outlet is broadcasting it live.
Because when a guy is heading to prison for lying to Congress, you can take it to the bank that this time he’ll testify truthfully.
And they say irony is dead.
Michael Cohen has zero credibility. So naturally the Democrat-controlled Congress wants him testifying.
After all, they have zero credibility too.
These idiots in Congress are so desperate to create from whole cloth a justification for impeaching President Trump, they are willing to let this guy lie to them all over again.
And you can bet that this time when Cohen lies, the yutzes in Congress won’t refer him for prosecution. Because this time his lies will benefit them.
Just a reminder before the absurd Cohen hearing at 10am: the dude is going to jail for lying to Congress. But now we’re supposed to believe he is a paragon of truth?? That everything he says today is inviolable truth? How terribly convenient. This is pure idiocy. #MAGA #tcot— Ned Ryun (@nedryun) February 27, 2019
Yes, it is idiocy.
And that’s kind of the point.

“This may be the first time someone convicted of lying to Congress has appeared again so quickly in front of Congress. Certainly it’s the first time a convicted perjurer has been brought back to be a star witness in a hearing.”

I mean he’s quite literally going to prison for lying & fraud. https://t.co/TzwivY5uYV— Stephen Miller (@redsteeze) February 27, 2019
Congressional Democrats are completely unconcerned that they’re turning the House of Representatives into a clown show.
But of course they aren’t. If it leads to phony “impeachable offenses,” they’ll even take the word of a convicted perjurer.
This is a show-trial pure and simple.
Democrats know that Mikey Flanagan is a pathological liar. And they don’t give a damn.
The old saying goes “Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me.”
Shame on the Congressional Democrats. Shame on them.
But the Democrats in Congress don’t give a crap if Mikey Flanagan fools them a second time. They want his lies broadcast live on cable news and repeated in an endless loop for the next several days.
For the record, I’m not watching Mikey Flanagan testify.
Why should I? Why should you?
This hearing isn’t for our benefit. And it certainly isn’t for the benefit of the country or the “integrity of our democracy.”
It’s solely for the benefit of the news media — the same news media that is ignoring the US/NORK summit in Vietnam and a brewing conflict between two nuclear powers (India and Pakistan). Real news takes a back seat so they can push their “Countdown to Impeachment” nonsense.
More than two years in, and the media is still howling “This time we got’im!”

Our news media are garbage.
The Democrats are garbage.
It is they, not Trump, who are damaging our country, our democratic process and the rule of law.
And we Americans deserve better than this.
