Michael Cohen’s Conscious Will Bury President Trump
As Michael Cohen was sentenced to three years in prison, there are statements he made to the court that reveals this goes beyond looking for a reduction in his prison sentence. And it should be noticed that Cohen does not have to turn himself into prison until March of 2019, which means his sentence may be reduced. It’s not common, but legally possible.
“The irony is today is the day I am getting my freedom back as you sit at the bench and you contemplate my fate. I have been living in a personal and mental incarceration ever since the fateful day that I accepted the offer to work for a famous real estate mogul whose business acumen I truly admired. In fact, I now know that there is little to be admired.”
That statement speaks volumes. It goes beyond just simply stating he made a mistake and is asking for mercy before the court. It reveals a deeper pain and anguish, the proverbial Devil on one shoulder and Angel on the other.
In addition, Cohen has been living out of a hotel room for months, isolated, away from his family to spare them the pain, agony, and threats which coincides with his already personal incarceration, but goes also to the “mental incarceration” he he’s had before Trump’s presidency through present.
“I want to be clear. I blame myself for the conduct which has brought me here today, and it was my own weakness, and a blind loyalty to this man that led me to choose a path of darkness over light. It is for these reasons I chose to participate in the elicit act of the President rather than to listen to my own inner voice which should have warned me that the campaign finance violations that I later pled guilty to were insidious.”
Again, a statement that could only be interpreted as spiritual and/or religious where Cohen now sees how President Trump only allowed darkness into his life disguised as light, because of the money and power his connections to Trump brought him.
Cohen even cites Viktor Frankl’s book, “Man’s Search for Meaning,” where he said “there are forces beyond your control that can take away everything you possess except one thing, your freedom to choose how you will respond to the situation.”
Cohen realizes the historical perspective of his actions and Trump’s presidency. Even though he is going to prison, his actions and legacy will forever follow his children. Cohen, I have no doubt will do all in his power to change how history looks upon him.
“Despite being vilified by the press and inundated with character assassinations over the past almost two years, I still stand today, and I am committed to proving my integrity and ensuring that history will not remember me as the villain of his story.”
“Your Honor, this may seem hard to believe, but today is one of the most meaningful days of my life.”
A spiritual awakening? I believe so now and did from the beginning. Sure, if Cohen was to receive a pardon he would have accepted it gladly, but when he didn’t, I didn’t feel that Cohen was seeking revenge. As I’ve written in my books before and my blogs, at some point in your life we all face our maker and/or conscious, make sure you are squared up with both.
Cohen met his conscious.
