Unless it's just hype....Buckle up, and get the coffee brewing for a morning of anticipated rush.  With what he is alleging to enspouse, lets hope Cohen doesn't get taken down mafia style prior to his open hearing.  From what was reported, Trump plans to be up all night Hanoi time to watch his underling...

On the eve of Cohen's open hearing GOPs are trying to stifle him with personal threats.  It would appear they are all fearful of what he might reveal....

On Eve of Michael Cohen’s Testimony, Republican Threatens to Reveal Compromising Information

This might amounts to blackmail and Federal witness tampering as Trumpian supporter Representative Matt Gaetz of Florida twittered...

@mattgaetz




Hey - Do your wife & father-in-law know about your girlfriends? Maybe tonight would be a good time for that chat. I wonder if she’ll remain faithful when you’re in prison. She’s about to learn a lot...





GOP Rep. Issues Mob-Style Threat Ahead Of Michael Cohen Testimony


Matt Gaetz just told Trump’s former personal attorney that it’d be a real shame if anything happened to his marriage ...



On the heels of reports that Cohen, former personal attorney to President Donald Trump, would be painting a deeply unflattering picture of the president in his testimony Wednesday, Gaetz called him out over Twitter. 




“Hey [Michael Cohen] - Do your wife & father-in-law know about your girlfriends?” he asked.




“Maybe tonight would be a good time for that chat. I wonder if she’ll remain faithful when you’re in prison. She’s about to learn a lot ...” 




Whether or not Cohen is having an extramarital affair is not widely known, nor particularly relevant. Many observers pointed out that what Gaetz had done could be potentially considered witness tampering, a violation of federal law carried out in full view of the public.   





MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow responded by sharing multiple links to the legal statute (“Obstruction by Intimidation, Threats, Persuasion, or Deception”) that Gaetz may have violated, before asking a question surely on others’ minds: What now?



The congressman had a more cryptic reply to Vox reporter Alex Ward, who also asked him about the tweet. 




“Watch tomorrow,” Gaetz told Ward in a text message.




“Will do ― anything I should be prepared for?” Ward said.




“Fireworks,” the congressman replied.




Cohen is scheduled to testify before the House Committee on Ethics and Government Reform, where he will be asked about his dealings with the Trump Organization, including any possible tax violations or criminal acts. Cohen worked for over a decade as Trump’s loyal “fixer” before agreeing to cooperate with special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia. He has also cooperated with federal prosecutors in New York.




Cohen now stands as a major threat to the Trump presidency, and Republicans are expected to largely paint him as a liar at Wednesday’s hearing.

You are welcome to recall my posts when it becomes that i'm proven wrong as long as we judge it on the merits of what we knew to be true at the time it was posted.
