I’m going to stick to my guns that Michael Cohen is setting up President Trump. First and foremost, Cohen set up Trump when he recorded at least one conversation that we know of when it came to the hush payments to Stormy Daniels and Karen McDougal.
Next, I believe Cohen played Trump again when Rudy Giuliani and Trump threatened Cohen and his family, causing Cohen to say for reasons of fear and for the safety of his family, he would not appear voluntarily before Congress to testify.
We all knew that Trump would threaten Cohen, so it should come as no surprise that Cohen knew that. By saying he feared for his safety, you can add another obstruction of justice charge.
The next day, Cohen received a subpoena the next day.
Cohen did delay his testimony on the date he was subpoenaed because he was recovering from recent shoulder surgery, yet he was spotted out around town having expensive dinners with friends and his wife.
But now, Cohen’s attorneys were able to obtain a 60 day delay on turning himself into jail based on his surgery and his appearances before three committees later this month, meaning that Cohen will now surrender himself on May 6.
Now, Cohen could still be subpoenaed even while in prison, it just makes the logistics a little bit more complicated, but now Cohen will be testifying while President Trump is out of the country in a summit with Kim Jong Un.
I’ve always said that Special Counsel Mueller drops huge stories when President Trump cannot react to them such as being out of the country. Granted, Cohen is unlikely to be talking about the investigation since it is ongoing, but he is still controlling the narrative and preventing the President from creating a distraction.
