Michael Cohen frustrated he is the only one being sent to prison for campaign finance violations, “I’m not the one who slept with a porn star.”

He’s got a point.

Courtesy of Newsweek:

Donald Trump’s former personal attorney Michael Cohen lamented the fact that he is the only one going to prison over campaign finance violations made during the 2016 election, saying he’s “not the one who slept with the porn star.”

Cohen pleaded guilty to a slew of charges last year, including making illegal hush money payments—which, he said, were under the direction of Trump—to adult film star Stormy Daniels and former Playboy model Karen McDougal—two women who claimed to have had affairs with Trump. Cohen will begin a three-year sentence on May 6 at a federal prison in upstate New York.

“You are going to find me guilty of campaign finance, with McDougal or Stormy, and give me three years—really?” Cohen told The New Yorker in an article published Monday morning.

“And how come I’m the only one? I didn’t work for the campaign. I worked for him. And how come I’m the one that’s going to prison? I’m not the one that slept with the porn star,” Cohen continued.

It’s not hard to understand Cohen’s frustrations. 

After all, he paid off Stormy Daniels with Trump’s money and at Trump’s direction, and then lied about it also at Trump’s direction. 

This is criminal activity perpetrated by Trump, and yet only his subordinates get burned in the end. 

Just like in the case of obstructionism, all of the evidence is right there, and somehow he still gets to skate away virtually untouched. 

I live for the moment when that smug son-of-a-bitch finally gets what’s coming to him.

    I hate to say this, but I don’t think Trump will ever face any real consequences for his actions.

    The worst we can do is vote his ass out. I hate that he has made me so pessimistic, but there it is.

    Nazi Germany went nuts for 12+ years. We’re really only on year 2 in Herr Drumpf’s rein. I predict we won’t shake him off so easily.

    Another Cohen… During the segment, Cohen produced a device that he said the Israelis had developed to identify sex offenders. As he waved the device over Moore — it looked like the metal detector wands used at security checkpoints — it beeped.
    The bit was a nod to the multiple women who came forward during Moore’s unsuccessful Senate bid in 2017 to accuse him of pursuing relationships, sometimes involving allegations of sexual assault and misconduct, when they were teenagers. Once Moore realized what Cohen was doing, he ended the interview and walked out. He sued Cohen for defamation in September.

    Seems like all his life donnie has been able to get away with his misbehavior. I have seen people like that. They are so corrupt that when they leave this earth they still act like they were right and everyone else wrong. But they do die unloved. People fear them but when those types of people die everyone sighs a big releif and move on with nary a thought of the battleax.

      His tweets alone, if you pay attention to what he says, he is one miserable POS.
      Pardon me, college education, back when it was affordable.

      For the life of me, cannot figure out how “they” are predicting a landslide for second term 2020.
      This country has lost its soul.

    Adolph Hitler died April 30, 1945 – 74 years ago Tuesday.

    Trump was born 13.5 months later. Fits a reincarnation timeline.

    “This lawsuit is not designed to succeed,” Waters and Schiff said in their statement. “It is only designed to put off meaningful accountability as long as possible. Trump has already said publicly that he is fighting all of the subpoenas from Congress, and that he does not respect Congress’ role as a coequal branch of government.”

    The statement added: “This unprecedented stonewalling will not work, and the American people deserve better.”
