I listened to the Michael Cohen's testimony on and off, and caught the highlight reels later on. You'll have heard much of the endless commentary. What I don't understand is why nobody, Cohen included, is not mentioning the most obvious reason to believe him: if he's caught lying to Congress again, they'll throw the book at him.
In his heart of hearts, I'm sure he's still a sleazebag – but he's in no position to misbehave. It would be very surprising if the Southern District of New York didn't have a laundry list of charges they still could bring; they had a reason to ask for a longer sentence than the one recommended by Mueller.
Cohen's performance was impressive He seemed a lot more intelligent than he was back when he still was a Tr*mp mouthpiece., butI guess that's easier to do when you don't have to do riffs on the lies of an idiot. Now he'll have three years of otherwise unproductive time to work on his book. Maybe I'll read it.
