President Trump said Sunday that the congressional testimony of Michael Cohen, his former personal lawyer and fixer, was in part responsible for the collapse in negotiations with North Korea over its nuclear program last week — continuing to vent about the investigations encircling him and his associates.

During seven hours of testimony Wednesday, Cohen said that Trump manipulated financial records and that Trump knew in advance about WikiLeaks’ efforts to release damaging information about his Democratic opponent, Hillary Clinton, during the 2016 campaign, among other allegations.

The testimony unfolded as Trump had traveled to Hanoi to try to forge a deal with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un over curbing the North Korean nuclear program.

While in Vietnam, the president said he walked away from the summit with Kim because of a disagreement about economic sanctions on North Korea. But he gave another explanation for the failure of the talks on Twitter on Sunday evening.

“For the Democrats to interview in open hearings a convicted liar & fraudster, at the same time as the very important Nuclear Summit with North Korea, is perhaps a new low in American politics and may have contributed to the ‘walk,’ ” he tweeted. “Never done when a president is overseas. Shame!”

For anybody who actually believes that Trump walked away from a deal with Kim Jong Un due to the Cohen testimony, I have some perfectly good swampland I would like to see to you. 

That deal was DOA before Trump bit into his first Big Mac on Air Force One. 

In all actuality, this supposed “summit” was the planned distraction, not Cohen’s testimony which the House Oversight Committee had publicly been trying to pull together for months. 

This is just more excuse making from Trump to explain away his inability to do the job that the Russians handed him.

    “That law was passed in 1970, after mobster Joseph Valachi exposed the workings of the Cosa Nostra seven years earlier before Congress, and RICO laid certain crimes that prosecutors could use to build cases against corrupt organizations and target anyone involved in the conspiracies. “It took prosecutors a while to figure out how to use RICO effectively,”

    OT/ “It’s not just current Republicans members of Congress who have come out in support of the resolution. Twenty-three former Republican senators and representatives as well as a bipartisan group of 58 former senior national security officials oppose the president’s abuse of power.

    “Under no plausible assessment of the evidence is there a national emergency today that entitles the president to tap into funds appropriated for other purposes to build a wall at the southern border,” wrote a group of former national security officials in a letter last week.

    The group includes former Secretaries of State Madeleine Albright and John Kerry, former United Nations Ambassador Thomas Pickering, and former Defense Secretary Leon Panetta.”

    Well gosh if he really believes that Cohen is a liar then why should his testimony bother him?

    Also his comment about never happened to a president before was fact checked and the Benghazi hearings were going on while Obama made 7 overseas trips, so add another lie to the thousands told by Mr Deal Maker.

    I thought that Don the Con was a really great negotiator? Michael Cohen’s testimony shouldn’t have affected his business with North Korea at all? Not if he’s such a genius.

    The State Department confirms that the North Korean’s account of the circumstances which ended the negotiations are the more factually correct.

    Our own State Department is saying Trump is a liar and the North Koreans are telling the truth. How warped and twisted is that?
