Cohen knows where ‘the bodies are buried’ — and his public testimony may drive Trump from office: Law professor

Published

on

University of Baltimore law professor Kim Wehle told MSNBC on Monday that she expects public and private testimony from President Donald Trump’s former fixer Michael Cohen will “shift the dialogue” among Americans, and could ultimately lead to the president’s ouster.

“This is the first time people are going to see someone tell their story who was so tight with the president for many years, who knows where the proverbial bodies are buried on a host of matters,” Wehle said.

“People can watch for themselves and make a determination as to whether these give rise to serious concerns about the propriety of this president being in office going forward,” Wehle continued, saying Cohen’s testimony would allow Americans to “make our own judgments as to whether he’s believable” despite any attacks from the White House.

“I think it’s an important pivotal moment that could shift the dialogue away from this idea of ‘witch hunt, Deep State, this is all a bunch of baloney trumped up charges’ to ‘maybe there’s something here,'” she said. “This person doesn’t have a lot to lose in not telling the truth at this juncture.”

Trump also added that she "lied" about a number of issues, claimed repeatedly she wants to raise taxes, said she is for "open borders and sanctuary cities ... which is also protecting a large number of criminals," and that she would destroy the Second Amendment.
