Wednesday's Must-See TV
On Wednesday, at roughly the time that murderous North Korean tyrant Kim Jong Un will be hot tubbing with Kremlin asset and playable buffoon Donald "Rump" Trump in Hanoi (a trip to Vietnam that Rump should have made before a mysterious case of bone spurs kept him stateside in the '60s), former Rump fixer Michael Cohen will be singing in an open hearing to the House Oversight Committee. By agreement with the Special Counsel, Cohen won't be discussing anything related to the Russiagate probe. His testimony, however, will cover everything that Rump is desperate to hide: the dirty business of the Trump Organization, Rump and his crime family's shady practices, Rump's connections with the Mafia and Russian crime syndicate, some possible insurance fraud related to Merde o' Lardo, and many other tasty topics. Let's hope he packs a lot of details in his opening statement. The House Intelligence Committee and Senate Intelligence Committee will hold closed hearings with Cohen this week also.
The Rethuglicans on the Committee, including corrupt Trump cultists Jim "Gym" Jordan, Mark Meadows, Virginia Foxx and Paul Gosar, will undoubtedly try to derail the hearings, attack Cohen's credibility, and generally cover for Rump's criminal activities. Dems on Rep. Elijah Cummings' Committee include Rep. Ocasio-Cortez, Rashida Tlaib and Ayanna Pressley, along with razor-sharp Reps. Jamie Raskin and Jackie Speier. The hearing starts at 10 a.m. Eastern in the Rayburn House Office Building, and we understand popcorn will not be offered by the Committee.
