I’ve been unable to watch the last few hours. But my overall impression from the first portion of the testimony is that Cohen was eloquent in portraying how Trump recreated the corrupt culture of the Trump Organization in the Trump Administration.
The GOP goons angrily attacking Cohen at the hearing couldn’t have mirrored Cohen’s performance in his old role as Trump’s protector any better if they’d tried. And Cohen’s description of Trump’s gaslighting techniques — where he lies repeatedly and gets others to mouth those same lies — accurately reflects the bizarre post-truth world we’ve been living in ever since the 2016 election.
Anyhoo, open thread.
