Truth and Lies – Can You Tell the Difference
Michael Cohen testified before congress this week. He spent ten years working for Donald Trump as his personal attorney and fixer. He is a convicted felon, convicted of perjury, among other things.
He is a known liar.
He lied professionally for Donald Trump. Donald Trump is a pathological liar, and he surrounds himself with liars, people who are totally divorced from any relationship to the truth, people Like Roger Stone and Paul Manafort and Jerome Corsi and Rick Gates who have made their personal fortunes lying.
I watched Ivanka Trump lie this week about her father’s role in granting her husband a top secret security clearance, overruling the judgement of the intelligence professionals whose job it is to vet people for the clearance necessary to have access to the nation’s most sensitive data.
I watched Donald Trump lie about it to.
I watched Representative Jim Jordan, Republican from Ohio condemn Cohen for his lying, when all last year I watched the same the same man lie through his teeth about his knowledge the systematic molestation of college wrestlers at Ohio State University where Jim Jordan had served as an assistant coach. The doctor molested dozen of wrestlers in the program. Jim Jordan had a locker next to his. He was named as a witness by several wrestler who pressed a suit against the university. Jim Jordan denied; lying through his teeth he denied ever having heard about it.
The lies they tell, the inveterate liars they all are; It makes me wonder if they even understand the concept of truthfulness.
All of these liars claim to be Christians, and as such they are supposed to have an obligation to the truth, but they lie without compunction and feign indignancy when they are confronted with the truth.
Michael Cohen, for all his faults, he brought proof to back up his claims when he testified before congress this week. He wasn’t asking anyone to believe him, he was just making the record plain.
