A little known Congressman from Florida, Matt Gaetz, threatens Michael Cohen on Twitter. His tweet mentions possible 'girlfriends' of Cohen and wonders if Cohen's wife will remain faithful.
I don't think anyone believes Cohen is a model citizen, he's going to jail, he lost his law license, his life is practically ruined. So......what was Matt trying to convey? I think he was reminding the American people, that if they didn't already know he was a massive a$$hat after he threatened the parents of the murdered children from Parkland massacre at a hearing a few months back...he stepped it up so we all know he has no self respect and is a complete neanderthal. Thanks Florida.
Doesn't sound like I would enjoy meeting either of them.
Biggest jerk in congress? The competition is tough.
He is one of the slimiest creatures in the GOP right now (which is a hell of an accomplishment when you think about it). That he has gotten as far as he has is a depth sounding of how morally and intellectually bankrupt the party has become.
In today’s hearings, one of the congresswomen stated she wants Gaetz investigated for making threats and obstruction of justice. His behaviour is making a mockery of the process. His foolishness and malevolence might be entertaining if he was a character in ‘The Sopranos” , but he’s a US congressman from Florida....and it’s time to make the House and Senate members live up to their sworn responsibilities.....it’s time to get rid of anyone who flys by the seat of their pants when handling the people’s business. It ain’t horseshoes. (By the way, Jim Jordan is also a huge jerk)
I saw that. At least one investigation has been opened in Florida.
And yeah, Jordan is a huge jerk. And Meadows and almost every GOPer who has opened his or her mouth at today's hearing. Very clearly, they are all following a messaging strategy, repeating, repeating, repeating it. The lack of integrity is frightening.
Did you see Elijah Cummins closing remarks? Wow! We need more public servants like Elijah.
No, had to stop watching before that point. I like Cummings a lot. Good man. But it certainly was a ****-show. Will the Republicans stick to their ridiculous script tomorrow? I think surely they will because because they clearly see that as their only option. They aren't going to ask relevant questions (or perhaps very few) because the answers they get aren't likely to be good news for their cause. And of course everything they did to day was in aid of the narrative that Trump, his supporters and right wing media is pushing.
People like Gaetz have likely been bullies long before they get bold enough to send out such a tweet and then double down with a bullshit explanation of 'witness testing'. He is of low character and seems to think his skeletons will never be dragged out of a closet. He was piggish and a lout, nothing else to say.
actually he was plain old stupid
he should have realized what was going to happen
He should have, but unfortunately the climate has been favorable for thugs. He expected to intimidate Cohen and to also look like a mortality monitor...he miscalculated.
