So let the sideshow begin

FoxNews.com reports that
Florida Rep. Matt Gaetz defended a tweet he sent Tuesday about Michael Cohen, suggesting that President Trump’s former attorney had been unfaithful to his wife.
Tweeting directly at Cohen, the Republican congressman wrote: “Do your wife & father-in-law know about your girlfriends? Maybe tonight would be a good time for that chat. I wonder if she’ll remain faithful when you’re in prison. She’s about to learn a lot…”
When asked about his tweet by reporters on Tuesday, Gaetz insisted that his remarks were not witness tampering, according to The Hill.
“We’re witness testing not witness tampering,” Gaetz explained. “And when witnesses come before Congress their truthfulness and veracity are in question and we have the opportunity to test them.”
The lawmaker’s comment comes as Cohen appeared on Capitol Hill Tuesday for the first in a series of hearings this week.
His testimony Tuesday to the Senate Intelligence Committee took place behind closed doors. On Wednesday, he’ll testify before the House Oversight Committee in an open hearing. The following day, Cohen is set to appear behind closed doors for a House Intelligence Committee interview.
Cohen was sentenced in December to three years in prison after pleading guilty to campaign finance violations, tax evasion and lying to Congress. He agreed to cooperate with prosecutors as part of a deal.
Lanny J. Davis, who represents Cohen, slammed Gaetz’s tweet as a shameful lie and one that would not sit well with the Floridians whom the lawmaker represents.
“We will not respond to Mr. Gaetz’s despicable lies and personal smears, except to say we trust that his colleagues in the House, both Republicans and Democrats, will repudiate his words and his conduct,” Davis said in a statement to Fox News.
“I also trust that his constituents will not appreciate that their congressman has set a new low — which in today’s political culture is hard to imagine as possible,” he continued.
In addition to his tweet, Gaetz also addressed Cohen on the House floor on Tuesday night, painting him as a repeated liar.
“I guess tomorrow we will find out if there is anyone that Michael Cohen hasn’t lied to,” Gaetz said. “We already know he lied to Congress, we already know he lied to law enforcement, lied to the IRS, lied to three banks and he’s going to prison for his lies. And so I guess it will be relevant for us to determine like, does he lie to his own family? Does he lie to his financier’s? Does he lie to his financiers who are members of his family?”
Gaetz, who is not a member of the oversight committee, also called Cohen’s credibility into question.
“And it’ll be one heck of an inquiry for us because this is someone who has tangled such a web of lies that he is not to be believed and I think it is entirely appropriate for any member of this body to challenge the truthfulness and veracity and character for the people who have a history of lying and have a future that undoubtedly contains nothing but lies,” Gaetz continued on the floor. “That is the story of Michael Cohen, we’ll see it play out tomorrow. And I, for one, can’t wait to the get to the bottom of things, and can’t wait to get to the truth.”
He comments echoed ones he made during an interview on The Todd Starnes Show on Fox News Radio, saying that he doesn’t anticipate getting “very truthful testimonies” from Cohen on Wednesday. He also predicted that Cohen would “try to cast Donald Trump as the villain and he as the person that’s going to make things right.”
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., later chimed in on the subject, tweeting a reminder to fellow lawmakers to be cognizant that remarks “on social media or in the press can adversely affect the ability of House Committees to obtain the truthful and complete information necessary to fulfill their duties.”
So, while President Trump is in Hanoi, making advances in Foreign Policy on a historic level, the Democrats continue to reduce the House of Representatives into a pitiful doppelganger of greatly missed by children of all ages, Ringling Brothers and Barnum and Bailey Circus.
Do the House Dems actually expect to win over any Trump Voters with today’s sideshow theatrics?
I mean, seriously.
They are interrogating a known liar who has been caught lying to Congress before.
This clown will tell them whatever they want to hear in order to save himself from further punishment.
Cohen has already pleaded guilty to five counts of tax evasion, one count of making false statements to a financial institution, one count of willfully causing an unlawful corporate contribution, and one count of making an excessive campaign contribution.
In other words, Cohen pleaded guilty of violating campaign finance charges by paying off a couple of gold-diggers.
No Russian Collusion has been found or formally charged to any member of the Trump Campaign nor the President, himself by previous House or Senate Committees.
Donald J. Trump is still President of the United States of America. And, the Democrats are still in the midst of a national temper tantrum over that fact.
The House Democrats hate Trump and love illegals so much that they passed a measure yesterday aimed at ending the National Emergency over the crisis at our Southern Border which the President has already declared.
To heck with those who actually voted them into their cushy jobs on Capitol Hill.
But, I digress…
The line at the end of the Fox News Article quoting San Fran Nan as saying that the members of the House Committees need “to be cognizant that remarks “on social media or in the press can adversely affect the ability of House Committees to obtain the truthful and complete information necessary to fulfill their duties.” is hilarious.
The purpose of all these “investigative” committees has nothing to do with “obtaining the truthful and complete information”.
They are nothing but lynch mobs whose purpose is to overturn the will of the American people and to somehow drive President Donald J Trump from office.
Good luck with that, Dems.
He’s already made you look like a bunch of clowns in a circus for the last two years.
So, let the sideshow begin.
Until He Comes,
