‘Cohen has tapes’: John Dean explains why Trump won’t be able to dodge revelations from fixer’s upcoming testimony

Published

on

President Nixon’s former White House counsel explained to CNN Thursday why Donald Trump may be worried about his former “fixer” Michael Cohen’s testimony before Congress next month.

“Michael Cohen has deep knowledge and wide knowledge of President Trump and what happened during the campaign and so we’re finally putting a face on somebody who can talk with authority about these events,” John Dean said after news broke about the attorney’s February Congressional testimony.

Host Brianna Keilar noted that when Dean testified before Congress about Nixon, some dismissed what he had to say as “outrageous” — and the former White House counsel agreed.

“I was attacked not only by Nixon’s supporters and surrogates, I was attacked by Nixon in a number of his national addresses,” Dean said. “The tapes certainly resolved who was telling the truth and I’m not quite sure how it all would have turned out had there not been tapes.”

He then added: “I understand Michael Cohen has tapes as well.”

“I’m sure Trump doesn’t know which ones he does or does not have since it was Cohen doing the taping,” Dean said, adding, “I don’t know how many tapes there are, but certainly there’s no motive for Cohen to lie at this time about his work with Trump.”

"We weren't saying he is racist," she explained. "We were saying that the words that he used were racist."

"We all know the argument that could be made against us in terms of our philosophy, in terms of our priorities and the rest," Pelosi said. "And the president knows there are arguments that could be made against him and, therefore, he wants to distract from them."

‘You have to think about it?’ Kris Kobach goes down in epic flames when CNN’s Cuomo asks if he’d vote for a racist

Published

Kris Kobach went down in flames going up against CNN host Chris Cuomo on Tuesday, as the Kansas Republican attempted to "explain" what President Donald Trump "really said" about the four congresswomen of color he attacked Sunday.

Cuomo read Trump's quotes aloud asking if they were racist.

"Now you're editorializing it," Kobach said. "The problem with Twitter, it's 140 characters and since it's so vague--"

As a point of fact, Trump used three tweets to say what he said about the women, not editing it down to 280 characters.

"He said the words," Cuomo fact-checked.
